State of Play
Part 5
Plot
Once again we start at Heralds. All the journalists are trying to figure out the puzzle with all the different information they have from Warner Schloss, Foy, U-ex oil etc. Cameron gets a bit upset at his employees because he wants them to write a story soon, or else other newspapers will steal it from them.
Callum visits Greer to find out of more in the hiring of Sonia. Greer says that the minister of energy, George Fergus, hired Sonia, and that’s lead to another clue.
On the police station Foy gets interrogated. He tells his “story” in a few minutes, and finds out that it is not the police that have been chasing him in the grey rover in episode 4. Right after he bumps into Della and tells about the people who are following him. They change cars to secure Foy, and agree to meet in front of the hotel later.
The journalist, Helen, is asking Fergus if he was the one who hired Sonia to work for U-ex oil, but he gets insulted and angry, and says that she should keep her mouth closed if she wants to keep her job.
Foy is scared, he thinks that he might get killed because of his dirty job at Warner Schloss, but he will still not tell the journalists about it. Now Foy and Stephen meet up with all the journalists, but not face to face. Stephen overhears Callum and Della’s questioning of Foy. He tells the whole story about Sonia’s hiring, together with a contact person for U-ex oil, called Paul Canning. Sonia operated with dirty money, and wanted to back out, but Paul did not accept her non-attendance, and got mad. At the same time Sonia was falling in love with Stephen, and she was getting pregnant as well. When Stephen hears it he gets furious and walks right in to Foy, beats him up, and says that he was the one who killed Sonia, but justifies the case by saying he just offered her a job.
At the evening the journalists at Heralds have written the whole story. When they show it to Cameron he gets very excited and says it is a great day today. Cameron tells everyone to take the rest of the day off, because they have to celebrate, and at the same time he stops the printing of newspapers, so that he can get their story printed too.
Next morning after the publication of the story Stephen and his co-workers panics a bit. Stephen argues with his spin doctor, and hits him in the head.
Stephen asks George why he works for U-ex oil, but he will not answer clearly. Stephen and Greer think that he has let them down.
Part 5 ends with Callum asking Sonny if he can testify. He wants him to say that he took part in the handing over of the suitcase.

...A drama, also known as a play, is a form of literature written intentionally for theatrical performance. Most of the parts in a drama are consisted of scripted dialogues, or only the acting in some cases, between characters intended to be performed by actors and actresses to move the story along. There are six main elements of drama which serve as the basis of producing a successful play. These essential elements of drama include the plot of the story, the theme, the genre in which the story belongs, the characters, the setting, and the audience.

Caliban vs. Prospero

...3 English 12/8/12 Major Assignment #2: Forgiveness vs. Vengeance Essay Throughout Shakespeare’s The Tempest, the theme of vengeance and forgiveness make multiple appearances. At first, it seems like the entire plot of the play is a scheme designed by a powerful magician named Prospero to bring his rivals to a state of regret because they had usurped him from his rightful throne in Milan. However, as the story progresses, it seems as if Prospero brought his enemies to his island not for revenge, but so that he can pardon them and restore the rightful order of things to his dukedom of Milan. The play starts, in Act 1 Scene 1, with a storm threatening to destroy a ship that happens to have Prospero’s enemies on board. We later find out that this storm was, in fact, created by Prospero himself for the purpose of trapping his enemies on his island. At first it may seem that this was an act of vengeance by the part of Prospero and it may be, but he asks Ariel if his enemies are okay (Line 217). By Act 2 Scene 1, we meet Prospero’s enemies. Here it becomes more obvious that Prospero wants vengeance as he is making Alonso suffer by thinking his son, Ferdinand, is dead because of the storm. This scene showcases another plot of Prospero’s, which is to kill off Alonso. Prospero, through Ariel, makes all but Antonio and Sebastian fall asleep. This way, Antonio and Sebastian can speak their minds without worrying of consequence. This leads to Antonio......

Macbeth

...Elizabethan stage. Shakespeare knew how to entertain and involve an audience with fast-paced plots, creative imagery, and multi-faceted characters. Macbeth is an action-packed, psychological thriller that has not lost its impact in nearly four hundred years. The politically ambitious character of Macbeth is as timely today as he was to Shakespeare's audience. Mary McCarthy says in her essay about Macbeth, "It is a troubling thought that Macbeth, of all Shakespeare's characters, should seem the most 'modern,' the only one you could transpose into contemporary battle dress or a sport shirt and slacks." (Signet Classic Macbeth) Audiences today quickly become interested in the plot of a blindly ambitious general with a strong-willed wife who must try to cope with the guilt engendered by their murder of an innocent king in order to further their power. The elements of superstition, ghosts, and witchcraft, though more readily a part of everyday life for the Renaissance audience, remain intriguing to modern teenagers. The action-packed plot, elements of the occult, modern characterizations, and themes of import to today's world make Macbeth an excellent choice for teaching to high school students. This study guide offers ideas for presenting Macbeth to a high school class. The activities have been divided into sections: 1. 2. 3. 4. a brief literary overview, including a synopsis and commentary on the play; suggestions...

...Greek tragedy in the 1998-99 theater season: the National Theater of Greece’s Medea, Joanne Akalaitis’ The Iphigeneia Cycle (a double bill that combines Euripides’ two Iphigeneia plays), a revival of Andrei Serban’s famous Fragments of a Greek Trilogy, and a four-and-a-half-hour adaptation of the Oedipus Rex were announced at the start of the season. Off-off Broadway versions will inevitably follow. The Brooklyn Academy of Music even hosted a dance/theatre piece based on the Eleusinian Mysteries. 1 The Classic Stage Company, an off-Broadway theater group devoted to performance and adaptation of Western classics, currently receives more scripts that re-work Greek tragedy than any other category of drama. 2 From a global perspective, New York is simply reflecting a trend set by important modern playwrights and directors worldwide. Greek drama now occupies a regular place in the London theater season. In the past twenty years, acclaimed productions have been mounted not only in Europe but also in Japan, India, and Africa. Translations are even beginning to proliferate in China, occasionally with unexpected results. A recent Chinese translator of Sophocles’ Oedipus Rex referred to all the Greek gods generically as Apollo, since he could count on his audience’s ability to recognize this name from the United States space program. 3 The Greek theater festival at Delphi has played host to many of these performances, with the result that, for example, the Greek National...

He told us, in an e-mail exchange, how he brews his own reviews: “I read something I’m reviewing the same way I read other things except more so. That is, I already keep a commonplace book (a file folder, really) for quotations, ideas, information, etc. If I’m going to write a review I mark the work for myself, but besides underlining what interests me I also underline what — as far as I can tell — interested the author. By the time I’m done I have an outline for the review. All I have to do is figure out a smart-aleck lead sentence and a wiseacre ending.”[1] 2.

Othello

...Zuidema, Spring P. English 102C 2010 19 January 2015 Aristotle’s concept of a tragic hero “William Shakespeare’s “Othello” the Moore of Venice Tragedies frequently focus on a tragic hero that has a flaw that ultimately leads to his downfall. According to Aristotle, the tragic flaw is the most important part of the hero and the events that occur in the work is a reflection of that flaw. A tragic flaw is essential in a true tragedy. In William Shakespeare’s Othello, Othello is a prime example of an Aristotelian tragic hero. His gullibility and jealousy are the main reason of his downfall. Othello deals with love lost because of gullibility and jealousy. According to Aristotle, the life and soul of tragedy is the plot; Incidents in the plot have the best effect if they occur unexpectedly, and in consequence of one another. A great tragedy grips the audience with the plot; Aristotle also states that the sense of the inevitable must be present in tragedy. The central character must be noble and have a higher stature than most men. The tragic hero must also have better qualities than secondary characters but must also exhibit flaws. Another part of the central character is that he is destroyed by himself, not by others, bad luck, or depravity. These are the criteria necessary to be classified as an ideal tragedy. The main character of Othello is an example of a tragic hero, his basic elements matches him up to a true hero as defined by Aristotle. ......

...that make them tragedies or make the characters in them tragic heroes. In one of the “earliest surviving works of dramatic theory” of the ancient Greek philosopher Aristotle, he laid out his rules for what is the foundation of a tragedy and a tragic hero. In the play by Sophocles, Oedipus stands out as a classic representation of what a tragedy hero is.   Oedipus the book has key aspects that Aristotle said to make a tragedy and a tragic hero. One of the requirements for being a tragic hero according to Aristotle is "a [great] man who is neither a paragon of virtue and justice nor undergoes the change to misfortune through any real badness or wickedness but because of some mistake." There must be some mistake made by the character flaw that causes the great man’s fortunes to turn for the worst. Aristotle felt that there were certain plot devices that needed to take place in order for it to qualify as a tragedy and for the character to really be a tragic hero. Without a tragic hero there cannot be a tragedy happening, plot is a very important point. The plot of a true tragedy should be complex and consist of reversal and recognition. Both of these plot elements are contained within the play Oedipus the King. The play starts out highlighting Oedipus’ character by showing him talking to the grieving citizens in front of his palace. They are praying to the gods to stop the plague that is destroying Thebes. He mourns with his people over the hardships that have befallen the......

...Antigone vs Otheelo: women In the plays “Antigone” by Sophocles and the Shakespearean tragedy “Othello” written by William Shakespeare, the themes that’s being portrayed are honour and gender, through the play the audience if captivated by the characters choices and motives through the play. With the characters choices they help to make the play more understandable as the audience can recognise the tragic hero in both the plays. The relationships between men and women in Othello are remarked as lesser then men. Iago often refers to his wife as a prostitute - "A house wife that by selling her desires, Buys herself bread and clothes (iv.i.95)” showing what type of relationship women and men had during the late 16th century. Women were generally considered obedient, respectful, kind and warm. They were never outspoken nor were they meant to, for it could be seen as a lack of loyalty. When Othello accused Desdemona of cheating on him, he found himself in a position that he didn't want to face with. Othello was emasculated with the thought of a woman disobeying him. Men were easily manipulated into thinking the worst of woman because they were certain it would never happen. However, when the slightest things start to be pointed out the characters start to over analyse. Woman were not on the same level as men; men talked down to woman, they didn’t see them as equals nor think that they should be treated like one.

Shakespeare’s the Tempest, Hamlet, and Macbeth

...The Role of Magic in Shakespeare’s The Tempest, Hamlet, and Macbeth     Like many other themes, magic and supernatural elements play a large role in many of Shakespeare’s works.  The use of magic interests the audience, plays to the imagination, and adds dramatic intrigue to the story, even when the rest of the plot is comprised of believable events.  These themes are most prominent in The Tempest, Hamlet, and Macbeth.  In each of these plays, magic and supernatural occurrences not only play a large role in the plot, but also help to communicate various messages and literary value.  Shakespeare utilizes magic and supernatural happenings in both positive and negative lights, depending on the purpose it serves in each of the mentioned plays.  It is seen as a decision maker, nature, a prophet, a symbol of fate, and an equalizer.  Regardless of its specific role in each play and its positive or negative depiction, it serves to move the plot forward through a force which acts beyond the capabilities and power of man, even man himself did conjure it.     In The Tempest, we see an example of supernatural power conjured or exercised by man.  Prospero, the wielder of this magic, uses magic as a means to set right that which was, in his opinion, wrong in his life and in the universe.  In this play, we see magic used as an equalizer.  Prospero uses his learned sorcery to reverse all of the supposedly false or unlawful happenings in his life, apparently feeling that these things......

Drama

...Who was William Shakespeare? Shakespeare is William Shakespeare, one of the English-speaking world's greatest playwrights and poets, who possessed a great knowledge of human nature and transformed the English theatre. Yet many facts of his life remain a mystery. Some have been acquired from painstaking looks at the records of the time, so that this summary is based on generally agreed facts. It has been said that we only know three things about Shakespeare: that he was born, married and died. He was baptised on April 26, 1564; we do not know his birth date, but many scholars believe it was April 23, 1564. His father was John Shakespeare (who was a glover and leather merchant) and his mother Mary Arden (who was a landed local heiress). John had a remarkable run of success as a merchant, alderman, and high bailiff of Stratford, during William's early childhood. His fortunes declined, however, in the late 1570s. William lived for most of his early life in Stratford-upon-Avon. We do not know exactly when he went to London but he is said to have arrived in 1592. There is great conjecture about Shakespeare's childhood years, especially regarding his education. It is surmised by scholars that Shakespeare attended the free grammar school in Stratford, which at the time had a reputation to rival that of Eton. While there are no records extant to prove this claim, Shakespeare's knowledge of Latin and Classical Greek would tend to support this theory. In addition,......

Romeo and Juliet

...William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet is an excellent introduction to Shakespearean drama; teenagers can relate to its plot, characters, and themes. The play’s action is easily understood, the character’s motives are clear, and many of the themes are as current today as they were in Shakespeare’s time. Therefore, it can be read on a variety of levels, allowing all students to enjoy it. Less able readers can experience the swash-buckling action and investigate the themes of parent-child conflict, sexuality, friendship, and suicide. Because of the play’s accessibility to teenagers, able readers can view the play from a more literary perspective, examining the themes of hostility ad its effect on the innocent, the use of deception and its consequences, and the effects of faulty decision making. They can study how the characters function within the drama and how Shakespeare uses language to develop plot, characters, and themes. The most able students can develop skills involved in literary criticism by delving into the play’s comic and tragic elements and its classically tragic themes: the role of fate and fortune, the inevitable nature of tragedy, and the isolation of the tragic hero. This teacher’s guide will be divided into several parts: (1) a brief literary overview, including a synopsis and commentary on the play; (2) suggestions for teaching the play, including activities, discussion questions, and essay topics to be used before, during, and...
