characters to insert small hints to make credible the acts of disguise and deception. The first use of this seen in the first scene of the first act, where Mrs Hardcastle suggests that their house ‘looks for all the world like an inn.’ This helps to justify the Marlow and Hastings believing that the Hardcastles house is an inn. Comedy arises from this, as due to the fact that Marlow and Hastings Believe Hardcastle’s house to be an inn, when conversing with Him they treat him like an innkeeper of a lower class than them. This is amusing, as the audience knows that he is the man whose daughter Marlow wishes to court, and Marlow is positively rude to him. The first time this is seen to happen

as historical writings in epic poems (First Punic War), tell the story of Rome and its conquests and served as prototypes for Aroman epics. Later poets imitated early Roman writers as they used these early writings for springboards into further development of drama. For example, Plautus’s lively plays were a model for much subsequent European comedy and are still performed today (encarta.msn).
Epic Greek poetry was exclusively in verse, but evolved from the folk ballads of early people of Greece who had an oral literature composed of songs about the actions of their heroes. Mythical and heroic events that are not celebrated in the Homeric works became the subject matter of a number of

Analysis of my own DVD cover, ‘Class On Grass’
I will be analysing my own DVD cover, ‘Class On Grass’.
The genre of this film is a hybrid genre of sport and co medy. The stereotypical conventions of sport and comedy include football, running and, for comedy, laughter, of course, to attract a bigger, mainstream audience. My target audience are anybody over the age of 12, who are also interested in football or comedy. The protagonists of my film are England football stars Wayne Rooney and David Beckham. These two are immensely famous and are known all over the world. However, people only know the sporting side to them but not the personal side. This will engage the interest of my target

The Misanthrope – Moliere
The Masks We Wear
Moral character types emerged during the latter stages of Greek literature, specifically in the new comedy of Menander; preceded by the creation of Theophrastus’ stock characters, which were based on observation of everyday life. First introduced to audiences in 1666, Moliere staged The Misanthrope in the upper-class salon of Celimene. Essentially, the salon is a microcosm of the royal court. In between duties at Louis XIV’s court, the elite townspeople gathered to converse, trade compliments, exchange insults, and scrutinize one another. French society was defined by courtly norms, which, amusingly were being refined on a constant basis. The

hekhov referred to The Three Sisters as a "drama," preferring to avoid the more confining labels of either "comedy" or "tragedy," although later critics have argued for both of those labels. It is one of the four major plays that he wrote at the end of his life. Chekhov was an accomplished fiction writer, one of the most influential short story writers of all time. At the time that his plays were being produced there was some criticism that his dramas too closely resembled the style of fiction. Traditionalists found the action too cramped and the characters too inexpressive, noting that there were too many people on the stage at any one time, doing nothing, for audiences to be able to

Reader Response Journal Entry – Satires
In class, we went over the definitions of a satire and began to talk about what elements of a satire are seen in Huck Finn. A satire is described as the use of humor, irony, exaggeration, or ridicule to expose and criticize people’s stupidity or vices.
As I began to think more about what a satire means, I realized that in modern day TV shows, politics, and other sources of entertainment, elements of a satire are often brought in. For example, Family Guy, Tosh.0, Saturday Night Live, Chelsea Lately, and the Simpsons are all television shows that could be considered satires, since they all mock people, exaggerate, and use comedy to expose people

The ancient Greeks began formalizing theatre as an art, developing strict definitions of tragedy and comedy as well as other forms, including satyr plays. Like the religious plays of ancient Egypt, Greek plays made use of mythological characters. The Greeks also developed the concepts of dramatic criticism, acting as a career, and theatre architecture. In the modern world these works have been adapted and interpreted in thousands of different ways in order to serve the needs of the time. Examples are offered by Antigone, used in 1944 by Anouilh to make a statement about the Nazi occupation of France, and by Brecht in 1948, likening Creon to Hitler and Thebes to defeated Germany

thing to the opposite. In tragedy this would mean from good to bad; in comedy it would mean the opposite. The reversal often marks a climax or turning point in the action. The example Aristotle gives is from Sophocles’ play, Oedipus Rex, in which a messenger informs Oedipus that the man he believes was his father, and who is now dead, was his foster father but not his biological father. This sets in motion a new stage in the play, leading to Oedipus’s discovery of his real parents and the tragic outcome. Reversals often depend (as in this case), on a “discovery” or “recognition,” which refers to a move from a lack of knowledge to the possession of knowledge, the recognition of a situation. One

character, plot, and music. One example is the plot of this film. The film talks about yet another man trying to get back to the fame he once had, Tony. Tony signs on to do a new play that he thinks will get him the fame he has been searching for. Then the play turns from a comedy to a much more sinister play. He now plays the Faust. This talks about the devil and once again talks about darker subject matter that hasn't really been seen in such musical films like Meet Me in St. Louis or An American in Paris. Both of those films are about love and don't really talk about religion even. The plot is much darker in this movie than in other musical films.

Parson Adams. And on the whole it is a realistic tradition which has dominated English
fiction. It appears in Dickens’s lovingly minute descriptions of London streets and in Thackeray’s truthful pictures of the Inns of Courts. But it may perhaps be best studied in George Eliot, whose Tullivers, Dodsons, and Poysers are like masterpieces of genre painting. 5 The line between realism and satire is often difficult to draw. In English fiction the two are closely related; indeed, the generalization that realism is pervasive will hold only if the latter term is so defined as to include work animated by the spirit of satire or of comedy.

The genre of this film is comedy romance, which is a hybrid genre as I can find lots of signs and conventions in the movie. For examples, the kissing scenes and some silly reactions of the characters can be found in the movie. What’s more, the lighting in this film is high-key lighting which connotes the meaning of happiness and serenity. Moreover, the mode of address in this film is indirect to the audience which was used the third person angle to encode the meaning to the audience.
On the other hand, I choose this movie because of few reasons. Firstly, I love the main character- Zac Efron very much. He has acted in many teenage romance films before, for instance, High School Musical

crowdsourcing is the crowd could turn against the business because crowds are not employees, businesses cannot expect to control them. An example of this is when NASA crowdsourced the naming of a space module. Comedy Central’s Stephen Colbert encouraged his audience members to vote for the name “Colbert” and it won the popular vote. NASA ended up choosing another name and had to deal with the PR disaster of declining the popular vote.
If a business does take a chance and crowdsources, despite its limitations, it need follow some principles. Business need to define their crowd, have a clear problem and a defined process, get involve and join the conversations, allow and respond to feedback, and give credit.

introduced during the grape harvest. In 335 BCE Aristotle provides us with the earliest surviving explanation for the origin of tragedy as a dramatic art form in his ‘Poetics’. Here he argues that tragedy developed from hymns and dances of praise to Dionysus;
‘Anyway, arising from an improvisatory beginning (both tragedy form he leaders of the dithyramb, and comedy from the leaders of the phallic processions which even now continue as a custom in many cities),[tragedy] grew little by little, as [the poets] developed whatever [new part] of it had appeared; and, passing through many changes, tragedy came to a halt, since it had attained its own nature’

Pier della Vigna’s unfortunate downfall from power led to his taking of his own life, which sadly means that his soul is going to remain in the Wood of Suicides for all eternity. Despite Dante’s compassion for Pier and his respect for the offices he held during his political career, della Vigna is still guilty of breaking Catholic law and thus is deserving of the punishment he received.

There is much evidence to support this view; his weapon of choice was a massive club; his customary garment was a lion skin, with the head still attached; he impiously wounded some of the gods; he threatened a priestess of Apollo at Delphi when an answer to his questions was not forthcoming. He created most of his own problems.
However, viewing Heracles as simply a strong buffoon is unfair. He may have held grudges, but he would also do anything to help a friend. Once his anger passed, he was the most critical judge of

At the age of thirty-five, on the night of Good Friday in the year 1300, Dante finds himself lost in a dark wood and full of fear. He sees a sun-drenched mountain in the distance, and he tries to climb it, but three beasts, a leopard, a lion, and a she-wolf, stand in his way. Dante is forced to return to the forest where he meets the spirit of Virgil, who promises to lead him on a journey through Hell so that he may be able to enter Paradise. Dante agrees to the journey and follows Virgil through the gates of Hell.

Revenge” was written in 1885.
Through his writings G. Bernard Shaw addresses prevailing social problems, but he also has a vein of comedy in his works which makes their stark themes more palatable. Issues which engaged Shaw's attention included education, marriage, religion, government, health care, and class privilege. He was most angered by what he perceived as the exploitation of the working class. He gained equal rights for men and women, alleviated abuses of the working class, rescinded private ownership of productive land, and promoted healthy lifestyles.

Anse’s selfish behaviors. When Addie dies, he is only concerned with buying his new teeth in Jefferson. Following her death he says, “But now I can get them teeth. Now that will be a comfort.” He further shows his selfishness when he makes an arrangement with a kinsman to trade Cash’s eight dollars and Jewel’s beloved horse for a new team of mules. Furthermore, Anse views the flood and he fire as more crosses to bear before he gets his new teeth, He has no concern or regard with what the journey is doing to his children. His selfishness is also expressed when he says, “I don’t, won’t begrudge her.” Anse forgives Addie for all the problems that she caused throughout the journey in which he portrays himself as a nasty, self-centered man. At the end of the novel he appears before his family with his new teeth and a new Mrs. Bundren. Through his selfishness Faulkner completely shows the separation between him and his sons.
