It has become customary to speak of a multilateralism of Shakespeare, but usually imagine a very whole person. Meanwhile, his life was as diverse as the works he created. You could even say that he had not one, but several lives. One Shakespeare is the one who was the son, lovers, husband, father and friend. But we know the least. His personal life remained a mystery to us. We know more about the other Shakespeare - the businessman who entered into an independent life almost without any means and had hard work to earn money to help support the family.
So, in the Renaissance English drama does not exist without poetry, but there poetry without drama. We now call Shakespeare a playwright and a poet, making no distinction between these two concepts. In his time it was not the same. The position of the poet and playwright in the public opinion was different. If now the value of Shakespeare is primarily determined by his great achievements in the dramatic art, in the eyes of his contemporaries was paramount poetry. Shakespeare himself, as far as we can tell, is not really appreciated what I wrote for the theater.
The poetic works of Shakespeare, taken as a whole, no claims to be a depiction of reality. Their goal is not the image and expression of thoughts and feelings about different phenomena of reality. If the descriptions of it and invade the poetic works of Shakespeare, here they are only a part of the poetic ornaments.
Expressive means of Shakespeare's poetry is unusually rich. They have a lot inherited from the European and English poetic tradition, but many completely new. In Shakespeare's time, originality is often achieved not so much by the novelty of ideological address topics as the search for new means of expression in traditional poetry themes. Shakespeare, however, showed his originality and wealth of new images, made them into poetry, and new interpretations of traditional stories.
Here Shakespeare really "sweet", as in many other verses of their poems, but the interesting it becomes when amazes us with unexpected metaphors, the prevailing. In sonnet 124 reads: love can be a random act, and then she's the illegitimate birth; but love is the true passion, and she is the child legitimate. Illegal children are dependent on the vagaries of fate, destined to legitimate a particular, and their right no one can be challenged. In this strange comparison it is not difficult to see the reflection of the social conditions of the era of Shakespeare.
The functions happen in a fictional region called Illyria. Its ruler, Duke Orsino is deeply in love with Countess Olivia and will ask on the hands. However, an additional cycle of incidents and also the development of fresh faces from the drama brings into living and impressions of all these personalities despair. This transpires throughout the error of twins sister viola and brother Sebastian who have been collapse inside the united states of Illyria following having a shipwreck of the boat.
Classmates of William Shakespeare is rightly called the largest humanist of the Renaissance. The creative legacy of the great playwright of all time includes 11 tragedies, 17 comedies, 10 histories, and poems. In the plays of the English writer reflected in different ages and Nations. His works had a huge influence on all European literature. One of the most enigmatic artists of the word set before mankind the question: "to be or not to be?" giving everyone the opportunity to find myself an answer.
A light Comedy from Shakespeare, not burdened with deep meaning. The simple storyline, which on close examination is not tenable, but if we take a certain amount of assumptions, and quite amusing. One day, one place had 2 sets of twins, absolutely to resemble each other, each pair gave the same name. The parents of one of the pair bought a second pair of twins in the service of his (Oh the times! Oh the customs!).
This play was written by Royal order wedding of Princess and being raised in the Palace, soon went into oblivion. It would seem that scandal: one of the greatest creations of genius, it can be said, the will was misunderstood by his contemporaries blunt, which some entertainment for the mind (here it is appropriate to say something trite like "there is no prophet in the Fatherland"). Fortunately, then the world was artists the pre-Raphaelites, who lifted the play to the skies (at the same time expelling from oblivion by William Blake). Everyone is happy and clapping.
Very, very unusual piece. Leaving aside duty for Shakespeare the conventions of the story (such as the naive motif of the three caskets, primitive casuistry of a Portion in the decision of the case of the pound of meat, etc.), and go straight to the things that touched my soul. First, it is the militant anti-Semitism. The attacks against Judaism and Jews are rude and full of anger. Surprisingly meet a hatred of Shakespeare. However, here there are nuances.
