...I do think that by doing so it looses a lot of its original meaning. I believe that literature can be interpreted in to many different meanings and ways that other people don't see. To one person Shakespeare can be a legendary writer and to anot her person he can be some idiot that wrote a lot of garbage. 
 After reading this section, I find it interesting that Shakespeare can be interpreted in several various ways. I have seen a few different productions of Shakespeare plays and I can understand the different ways that people have perceived the various plays. Personally, I believe that the difference between a “more faithful” versus a “more free” adaptation of a Shakespearean play is that a show that is “more faithful” tends to follow the time frame and setting that the play was placed in, whereas a “more free” adaptation can change to different time frames and have different surroundings than the play was actually placed in. With a more “faithful” adaptation of Shakespeare we learn more about the history behind the play and what it truly is about. Unfortunately, with a more “freer” adaptation we can lose the history behind the play because the context of the play can change based on the decisions of how the play was interpreted.
 
In a faithful version of a play, the language, setting, costumes, and all other major aspects remain as the author originally wrote them; a free adaptation may change one or more of these elements. A more faithful adaptation has the advantage of...

Shakespere Was Not for an Age but for All Time

...``Shakespeare Was Not OF An Age But For All Time`` I agree with the statement ``Shakespeare was not for an age but for all time. `` The words of praise probably the most famous ever written about Shakespeare , were penned by Shakespeare`s good friend and follow writer `Ben Johnson`. For the poet and playwright generally considered the greatest ever is also one of the least known of all literary figures. And his works were indeed created for the popular entertainment of his day with little thought to their immortality. Shakespeare did not take any steps to preserve his writings past their immediate use. (Fortunately his friends did.) With all the academic study of Shakespeare and the trappings of fine culture that have been wrapped around productions of his dramas over the centuries, we often forget what a rollicking, bawdy and entertaining spectacle his plays presented to their original audience — and still can to a modern audience, in the right hands. The timelessness of Shakespeare's themes continue to keep his plays fresh. He dramatized basic issues: love, marriage, familial relationships, gender roles, race, age, class, humor, illness, deception, betrayal, evil, revenge, murder, and death. The essential question that Shakespeare explored in his plays is, "what does it mean to be a human being?" The genius of Shakespeare is that he manged to show us ourselves in every conceivable light. It really doesn't matter when the plays were written since they are about the...

Hyperbole In King Henry

...play will not be as heroic and godly as initially envisioned. This is because there is a shortage in the resources necessary to depict this great spectacle, and it is instead the audience’s responsibility to both create and imagine the play. The opening prologue alone sets the stage for how equivocally this war will be portrayed, and also how frequently the reader’s understanding of Henry will be challenged throughout the play. In Act 1, we are introduced to the crafty Bishop of Canterbury and Bishop of Ely, who discuss a bill that will cause the Church to lose a significant amount of money if passed. They then realize that if they can convince Henry to invade France in order to claim the throne, they can postpone the bill in the meantime, as Canterbury has already proposed to donate a generous amount of money towards the war. Soon after, we meet Henry for the first time, and Canterbury delivers a prolonged speech to justify his claim to declare war with the French, by reassuring Henry that he can indeed inherit the French throne. Leading up to Act 1, scene 2, lines 290-310, King Henry has been presented with a chest full of tennis balls sent from the Dauphin, as a form of mockery to suggest Henry’s immaturity and inability to lead a country. This provokes Henry’s powerful rant, a retaliation to the mockery. This speech provides an essential insight into Henry’s multifaceted personality. It portrays not only Henry’s unpredictable nature, but also in such ambiguity alludes to......

The Real Richard

...The True Richard I have chosen to analyze the character of Richard III due to his cynical yet honest personality. One thing that sticks out about his character is his relationship with the reader and how he tells us exactly what he’s planning. Even when we are told what Richard will do, the reader is still surprised when he goes about the actions. For example, Richard tells us he is “subtle, false, and treacherous”(I.i), but there is nothing we can do to stop him from being that way. Another quality of Richard that sticks out to me is his ability to manipulate his peers. In act one scene two Lady Anne is mourning the death of King Henry VI, but Richard is set on manipulating her into loving him. Richard has no interest in Lady Anne, but instead wants to be closer and closer to becoming King. Richard’s dedication to achieve his goal no matter what obstacles come his way is a defining feature that sticks out to me. Throughout the play, Richard is faced with obstacles that test his commitment to becoming king. His first major test is when he has to win over Lady Anne. Richard killed Henry and knows Anne is out for his guts, but he has the courage to lie to her saying that he did not kill him. Later, Richard admits to killing Henry, but sweet talks Anne by making her believe that the murder was in an attempt to win her over. While reading this scene, we see Richard being honest to the audience, but a liar to the characters in the show. He knows that his actions have caused......

Comparing Henry V And Branagh's Film

...dark and gloomy background. As mentioned above, Olivier (1944) and Branagh (1989) may share similarities in storylines and endings, but the differences lie on the approaches of interpreting the play and the main focuses. It can be easily seen in Olivier’s film that he uses formalistic devices and creates a comic, bright atmosphere in order to emphasize the positive aspect of Henry V and to nullify sensitive discourses in the play (Aitken, 1991: p. 265). On the other hand, psychological realism and naturalism are used in the Branagh version, which rather portrays the complicated inner world of the character in the context of realistic political struggle by recalling those critical discourses in the film (ibid: p. 265).To elaborate, in Act 1 where the bishops collogue about the war, it is interpreted as a bright and casual talk, which is intended by Olivier to attenuate the impure intentions of religious leaders to encourage war. However, for Branagh who highlights the realism theater, this scene is only magnified as avarice of sly old politicians in a dismal context. Not only the issue of cinematic adaptation, but the issue of other production aspects can also be discussed as an evaluation of the two film versions. Particularly, the camerawork differs. In Olivier’s film, the camera often stays still at one point or moves in only one or two directions, which makes the movie very static and less lively. Also, Henry V is always in the middle of the camera focus in a high......

...obtained in a few minutes and the instruments are sufficiently inexpensive as to be available in many laboratories. An IR spectrum can serve as a fingerprint for mineral identification, but it can also give unique information about the mineral structure, including the family of minerals to which the specimen belongs and the degree of regularity within the structure, the nature of isomorphic substituents, the distinction of molecular water from constitutional hydroxyl, and the presence of both crystalline and non-crystalline impurities (Farmer, 1979). The interpretation of the absorption spectra of the Source Clays in the middle-IR (MIR) region (4000– 400 cm 1) given here follows those of Farmer and Russell (1964), Farmer (1974a, 1979) and Russell and Fraser (1994). In addition, reflectance spectra in the near-IR (NIR) region (11,000–4000 cm 1), where overtones and combination vibrations occur, are included. These spectra provide information on structural OH groups and H2O in clay minerals (Bishop et al., 1994; Frost and Johansson, 1998; Petit et al., 1999a) which may not be clearly observed in the MIR spectra. Small changes in stretching and bending band positions are additive in the combination bands, thereby making them more readily...

Pricing Futures

...Abstract This assignment is divided into two parts. Part 1 aims to construct a hedging strategy using index futures through a simple regression, with the change in spot price as the dependent variable and the change in futures price as the independent variable. We have used historical prices of the S&P 500 index and its index futures. Hypothetical examples of how to utilise the optimal hedging ratio obtained from the regression were also discussed. Part 2 explores various option trading strategies using options of three firms listed on NASDAQ:  News Corporation (NWS), market capitalisation: $ 13,208 million Seagate Technology (STX), market capitalisation: $ 5,109 million  Titan Machinery (TITN), market capitalisation: $ 482 million In part 2.1, we have constructed various speculative positions on these stocks on 19/09/2011 based on recent news as well as our expectations of their future stock price movements. Profit and loss were calculated on 26/09/2011 and again on 03/10/2011. In part 2.2, we used options from these stocks to construct various commonly used combination strategies on 22/09/2011 and calculated profit and loss on 29/10/2011. 1 Hedging with Futures Assuming that we are holding an S&P 500 index portfolio and we have a long position in the underlying asset. In order to hedge our exposure, we must take a short position in index futures. Our investment horizon is three years, thus we will be using three years of data from the period 2008-2010 in our......

...S.R. Luthra Institute of Management, Surat 2011-2013 A Comprehensive Project On SouthKorea Economy Submitted to Ms. Delnaz Kasturwala By INTRODUCTION: South Korea has a market economy which ranks 15th in the world by nominal GDP and 12th by purchasing power parity (PPP), identifying it as one of the G-20 major economies. It is ahigh-income developed country, with a developed market, and is a member of OECD. South Korea is one of the Asian Tigers, and is the only developed country so far to have been included in the group of Next Eleven countries. South Korea had one of the world's fastest growing economies from the early 1960s to the late 1990s, and South Korea is still one of the fastest growing developed countries in the 2000s, along with Hong Kong, Singapore, and Taiwan, the other three members of Asian Tigers. South Koreans refer to this growth as the Miracle on the Han River. Having almost no natural resources and always suffering from overpopulation in its small territory, which deterred continued population growth and the formation of a large internal consumer market, South Korea adapted an export-oriented economic strategy to fuel its economy, and in 2010, South Korea was the seventh largest exporter and tenth largest importer in the world. Despite the South Korean economy's high growth potential and apparent structural stability, South Korea suffers perpetual damage to its credit rating in the stock market due to the belligerence of North Korea in times of deep......

Market Analysis Japan

...Economic Strength: Japan is the 2nd largest economy based on gross domestic product which stands at $34,000.00 per capita. The unemployment rate is one of the lowest at 4%. This indicates that there is a good standard of living, most of the population are employed, thus the population has disposable income and can spend on luxury items such as sea-doos. Japan has a strong currency which trades 1 JPY for 0.121 CAD. The economic stability and strong currency provides a sound investment platform for global businesses. Target Market Size: Japan has an overall population of 127,078,679. 64.3% of the population are between the ages of 15 to 64, which incorporates our target market age group. The 64.3% represents approximately 41,187,425 males and 40,533,876 females. Moreover, 66% of the total population are urban dwellers which are ideal for our product. A highly urban population eases promotional tasks by having access to the population through major cities rather than rural area. Out of the approximately 127.5 million people who reside in Japan, 99% are literate and 66.4% work in the service industry. This goes to show us that their employees are well educated and generally earn a good income which goes to show they can afford to spend more. According to a recent survey by the World Tourism Organization, the Japanese take 25 days per year off for vacationing. This is ideal for Bombardier, as our water crafts are primarily going to be used during vacation time......

...in North America on September 13, 2013 (Pugliaresi & Snow, 2013, para. 1). This means that there is a great opportunity for a new hydraulic systems and controls company to enter the market place and capture a share of the business. The owners of LRT have over 80 years of combined experience designing and selling systems in the oil and gas market and have seen many short comings with the existing systems and competitors that cater to the oil and gas sector. While there are several large players and many smaller players that design and build hydraulic power units and controls, most of them have many short comings that cannot be ignored. The only problem is that no company has been able to set itself apart from the competition, so clients are forced to make do with the choices that they have because there are not many feasible options. It is important to understand that land and offshore rigs alike require hydraulic systems and controls to operate the many drilling functions that are required to drill for oil and gas. That being said the opportunities are significant and the timing could not be better to enter as a start-up company in the oil and gas market sector. 2.1 Market Summary The overall market for hydraulic power units and controls is immense. There are over 120 drilling contractors globally (Bloomberg, 2013, p. 1) and 3,362 rotary rigs working globally (Energy Economist Newsletter, 2013, p. 1). There are also 25 major oil companies such as Saudi Aramco, British......
