“Why does it seem like everybody is staring at me? Everywhere I go it seems that everyone is judging me. They don’t know what I have been through or they don’t know what I am going through now. They don’t see the all of the bruises, which the man who loves me put on me. *Flashback of Jessica coming in the house and her and her guy get into a fight* If he really loved me why would he do this to me?

...Question: Plays are often said to show rather than tell. How far does Richard III indicate that dramatic action and dialogue fulfill all the functions of presenting thought and action? "King Richard III", a play written by William Shakespeare portrays the true sinister nature of the main antagonist, Richard as he overtakes the throne of England through vile methods. Despite being deformed since birth and looked down upon for that very fact, his determination to be a villain replaces his lacking factors. Naturally, actions and dialogues of the characters in the play help the audience paint a portrait of other characters and the roles they occupy in the play.  They uncover the unknown side of the characters and show the thoughts which these characters hold as they progress. There are conflicts and contrasts that vary but they are all essential to unifying the play as a whole. Without those factors shaping the play, one would hardly be able to find more about other characters of the play and understand the dynamics of the play. By including monologues and dialogues amongst characters, Shakespeare fulfills all the traditional functions of a play in presenting thought and actions. The play begins with Richard delivering a soliloquy in which he first explains his situation and then proceeds to accounts of his evil deeds. When Richard mentions his deformed body and poor conditions that make him hard to live as a “normal” human being, audience may at first feel sympathy, only to......

...“In many parts of the world today religious education is facing dramatic challenges.” (, 2012). We live in a world where society is greatly affected by the ways and customs of different religions and cultures. The questioning of the relationship between religion and education in Ireland has been a sizeable debate recently. The increase in immigration etc. has resulted in new and diverse religions and cultures being introduced into Irish society. Naturally this means that change is imminent. When people first heard that I would be studying to become a religious education teacher their reactions were mostly what I had expected. The look on their face said it all for most people. I could tell they were thinking that religious education was not a real subject. That is was merely a subject where you could catch up on homework or sit back, relax and watch a movie. Of course my natural instinct was to defend the subject as I knew why I wanted to and was going to study to become a religious educator. However as I found myself trying to explain, it was challenging to try and find the words to define what the subject is and what it entails. It was difficult to do this without sounding like a “holy joe” as the expression goes. It made me realise that I needed to sit down and think in detail the meaning of religious education and also what I think the future of religious education in Ireland looks like? Will religious education still be a subject in Ireland in years......

Beckett's Three Dialogues

...Beckett’s Three Dialogues the key to his oeuvre In 1949, Samuel Beckett wrote a series of conversations between himself and a friend, George Duthuit. In these conversations, named Three Dialogues, Beckett and Duthuit discuss the works of three contemporary artists, Pierre Tal Coat, Andre Masson, and Bram van Velde. Three Dialogues was published in the second Transition, an experimental literary journal, and was written by Beckett and edited by George Duthuit. The history of the Three Dialogues is very important because prior to 1965, Three Dialogues was only ever published in fragments, aside from the original publication. These fragments were often placed out of context and looked as though they had been written in support of artist Bram van Velde. This lack of full publication lead to the piece being under examined and sometimes not fully understood. Over the years many critics have suggested that the Three Dialogues offers a special access to Beckett’s work, that they act as a key to his oeuvre. Some critics view the dialogues as the end of Beckett’s aesthetic development, some view it as a blue print for his following works, while others see it as a credo or manifesto like piece. Overall, weather you view it as the key, or merely another work, Three Dialogues definitely hints at, and sets up the future for Beckett’s collection of works. Three Dialogues foreshadows future structures, makes a template for character duos and dialogue, and most importantly sets up the......

...the businesses and the entire world. Globalization is simply defined as the process by which the different states, markets, technologies and firms become integrated and interconnected (Baur, 2011; van Tulder, 2001). Evidently, globalization has become an important facet of the twenty-first century. One of the more specific effects of globalization is the increased levels of trade and foreign direct investments worldwide. Furthermore, globalization has also facilitated the interdependence of the different economies throughout the entire world (Baur, 2011; Betsill & Correll, 2001). In addition to what has been previously mentioned, globalization has also influenced the development of Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) as a response to the recent increases in private investment (Teegen, 2003). Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) consist of citizens’ groups that are organized on a local, national or international level (Bendell, 2000; van Tulder, 2001). There are generally, three types of NGOs, these are: (1) advocacy NGOs who are primarily tasked with the promotion of the governments or in international for the groups who do not have the capacity to do so; (2) operational NGOs, which primarily deals with the provision of goods and services to the clients who are in need; and lastly, (3) hybrid NGOs or those who perform both tasks previously mentioned (Ghauri, 2003; Vormedal, 2008). It is in this regard that NGOs are popularly known as those groups which are organized based......

Effective Business Communication Through Theatre Technique

...that is being played on the larger stage of society. In their book, ‘Dramatic Success’, (Nicholas Brealey Publishing, 2004), authors Andrew Leigh and Michael Maynard reiterate that Corporate is Theatre. They have looked at ‘Self’, ‘Team’ and ‘Organisation’ as the three acts of a play. The dramatic scenario in Self consists of ‘Connection’, ‘Talent’ and ‘Power’; in Team of ‘Alignment’, ‘Creativity’ and ‘Exploration’; and in Organisation as ‘Insight’, ‘Inspiration’ and ‘Initiative’. The key to being an effective player in corporate processes is to learn to observe, sense and listen to the unfolding drama at workplace. Theatre techniques prepare you to see yourself objectively in a dynamic situation, and thereby help you to realise responsibility and strategise communication. They aim to help the student transform and become an inspired performer, an effective team player and a leader. The theoretical model of the Communication Process – comprising ‘coding’, ‘decoding’, ‘feedback’, etc.- is merely a codification of practical human communication, its strengths and pitfalls. These models help in somewhat superficial understanding the process and are of little help in real-life situations. The Role-Play methodology, successfully used over the years in management education, takes its cues from theatre. Theatre techniques, by way of communication-pedagogy, lend to the method new...

Waiting for Godot

...Godot" is one of the masterpieces of Absurdist literature. Elements of Absurdity for making this play are so engaging and lively. Beckett combats the traditional notions of Time. It attacks the two main ingredients of the traditional views of Time, i.e. Habit and Memory. We find Estragon in the main story and Pozzo in the episode, combating the conventional notions of Time and Memory. For Pozzo, particularly, one day is just like another, the day we are born indistinguishable from the day we shall die.    It is very clear from the very word "Absurd" that it means nonsensical, opposed to reason, something silly, foolish, senseless, ridiculous So, a drama having a cock and bull story would be called an absurd play. Moreover, a play having loosely constructed plot, unrecognizable characters, metaphysical called an absurd play. Actually the 'Absurd Theatre' believes that humanity's plight is purposeless in an existence, which is out of harmony with its surroundings.   This thing i.e. the awareness about the lack of purpose produces a state of metaphysical anguish which is the central theme of the Absurd Theatre. On an absurd play logical construction, rational ideas and intellectually viable arguments are abandoned and instead of these the irrationality for experience is acted out on the stage.   The above mentioned discussion allows us to call "Waiting for Godot" as an absurd play for not only its plot is loose but its characters are also just mechanical puppets with......

Collective Bargaining

...privatization had a detrimental effect on union membership. Second, legal reforms introduced in some countries prohibited compulsory unionisation (“closed shops”) and encouraged individual contracts. Third, the increase in international competition as a result of globalization undermined the bargaining power of trade unions and strengthened the hand of management. Finally, the growth of non-standard forms of employment, for example part-time or fixed-term contracts put a brake on union Trade union membership has declined in many countries. Collective bargaining is a key means for improving wages and conditions of work and for regulating employment relations. Integration into global markets has intensified competition. In response, enterprises sought to be more flexible by introducing new forms of work organization and changing their employment practices. These changes present important challenges for collective bargaining. Collective bargaining practices and structures needed to adapt to remain responsive.

Margininalization in Merchant of Venice

...compacting different ideologies into our mindsets. William Shakespeare, through his plays presents these ideologies, attitudes and values, both relevant and present in the Elizabethan context as well as in a modern context. Through a reading and analysis of Shakespearean plays we can see the ideology of how through the marginalization of society, there is a cultivation of the cycle of hatred, leading to revenge, preventable if we are able to open up and be merciful and forgive instead of succumbing to hatred and revenge. These feelings of mercy, hate, forgiveness, and revenge are built into the core of our human nature, and hence it has been present in the people of society during Shakespearean times as well as being easily relatable and understandable to our modern day society, due to it being in the fabric of our human experience and nature since the start of the human civilization. Modern day society struggles with the woes of marginalization on a daily basis, as well as in past important events that has changed the course of history and society. From daily issues such as the people who detests all immigrants who enter their country, as a result of racial differences, the now subsiding inequality of men and women, and the infamous anti-Semitic Nazi holocaust, where an estimate of 6 million Jews where killed by Adolf Hitler’s rule. As we can see this is closely related to Shakespeare’s famous play, The Merchant of Venice, which was written around 1597 and based in the......

Act 1 Summary Essay - the Birthday Party

...The Birthday Party , Harold Pinter – Act 1 The Birthday Party by Harold Pinter is a play which explores many themes including binary options like insanity vs. sanity and even the conventions of society. In 1958 when “The Birthday Party” was first performed in London it received a lot of criticism due to the fact that it was very complicate to comprehend and the characters didn’t seem to have the same popular structure as many plays did in that time e.g. Stock characters\stereotypical characters, as a matter of fact the play was infested with characters who were suffering from a serious case of insanity. However as a modern audience of the birthday party people are more open to research into the deeper meaning of what Shakespeare was perhaps trying to portray under the surface of the plot. In Act 1 of The Birthday Party we are flooded with a wide range of mundane images but the dialogue used in the scene creates a strange atmosphere to what we would expect in an everyday environment. The act begins with the everyday situation of husband and wife sitting at the breakfast table alongside their tenant Stanley who joins them. Shakespeare tries to enforce the idea of realism in this act by using objects such as the tenant Stanley eating cornflakes and talking to the landlady Meg. However Shakespeare turns this around through conversation “Those lovely flakes? You’re a liar, a little liar” This is an abnormal way for a landlady to treat her tenant , the phrase “You’re a little...
