How Do the Medieval Elements of Drama Acquire Some Elizabethan Qualities in the Spanish Tragedy.

...Thomas Kyd’s The Spanish Tragedy received great popularity and stamped as a form to be imitated not only because it has revenge as a tragic motive but also because it is a imitation from medieval tragedy. This masterpiece was presented as blood - revenge where the sacred duty of the father to avenge the murder of his son - and from that sensational theme (which was also popular in classic tragic dramas) derived its polarity and uniqueness. Revenge tragedy in its general sense defines the real dramatic motivation behind which blood and violence lies. Kyd, as an Elizabethan dramatist wanted to show his uniqueness with academic tradition and for this he owns a great deal to Lucius Annaceus Seneca who was a successful dramatist of Roman tyrants. In Senecan tragedies blood-revenge for murder, supernatural elements and delay are presented in realistic perspective. This style is followed by Kyd in his The Spanish Tragedy. As a revenge tragedy, The Spanish Tragedy starts with supernatural effect or the ghost of Andrea in Act I. Just like medieval or Senecan dramas Kyd introduced the drama with a ghost who has connections between the plays main protagonist character and future development of the plot. As Don Andrea was killed in a fair battle an Elizabethan audience would have little sympathy for him so Kyd also introduced the partial hero Horatio who is good in every sense and perspective so that audience have sympathy for his death and also feels sympathetic for his......

Law Essay

...world-wide protection for rightholders (a vitally important point in relation to the global Internet). A second preliminary point concerns the functions of copyright. Two major conceptualisations of this can be identified in the world’s legal systems. The Anglo-American or Common Law tradition emphasises the economic role of copyright. Protection of copyright subject-matter against unauthorised acts of exploitation enables right-holders either to go to market themselves with a product based on the material, or to grant others, by outright transfer or, more typically, by licence, the right to do so for whatever seems an appropriate price. In the absence of copyright, which would enable free-riding by would-be users, it is unlikely that producers of the material would earn any return for their work, and without that incentive production would dry up or slacken significantly. Copyright is thus essentially a response to market failure, a means by which socially beneficial activities can be made financially worthwhile. It rests ultimately upon the general or public interest.( See further G Davies, Copyright and the Public Interest (1994).) In contrast, the Continental or Civil Law tradition sees copyright as springing from the personality rights of the individual creator of the subject matter. Companies and organisations as such cannot be creators. This perception is reflected in the name ‘author-law’ given to the topic by the various Continental systems - droit......

Bulmers Case Study

...years work experience at Bulmers Ltd. Clonmel Co. Tipperary. Aims My Aim is to explore and analyse the internal workings of the company and to look at external factors affecting it, and in doing so to make the reader more aware of how the company is an integral part of the Local community of Clonmel. Objectives and Methodology The primary data was collected using my contacts and work colleagues and by observation. Secondary sources of information such as the company’s website were also used. History, Size, Ownership and Services Provided Commercial cider production started in Clonmel in the 1930s, by local man William Magner. Dowd's Lane in Clonmel was the original location of this Buisness. Mr Magner quickly established a successful business and, in 1937, he joined forces with the English cider-makers H.P. Bulmer and Co of Hereford, securing the rights to the Bulmers brand name in the Republic of Ireland. In 1946, Mr. Magner withdrew from the business and in 1949 the Bulmers name came to the fore. Today, Bulmers Ltd is a formidable Irish company. Cider production has been moved to state of the art production facilities at Annerville, on the outskirts Clonmel. The company currently employs over 250 people and is a substantial part of the economic infrastructure of the community of Clonmel. It continues to own the trade mark Bulmers® in the Republic of Ireland but it is no longer connected with HP Bulmer Ltd of Hereford, UK. Bulmers Ltd is now part of the......

Wedding Practices Ant 101 Introduction to Cultural Anthropology

...happily married. The first wedding in China seems so pricy to me. Three dresses? I’m sure they are all beautiful too, nothing cheap looking. I could not imagine wearing three dresses on that day. I was so busy and really did not want anything to worry about. I did so much work and I would not want to change into different dresses. Plus I loved my wedding dress, it was expensive and I only got to wear it one day. I wanted to wear it as long as I could. You are so busy saying hello to everyone and thanking everyone for coming I barely had time to pee. The second wedding sounds very interesting, I’m not sure if I would want a cow slaughtered at my wedding. I know I definitely would not want to put money in it. It sounds like a very unique tradition which mine was nothing like except for a white dress in the beginning. The third wedding in Sweden sounds like a wedding ceremony I’d like to have. It sounds like a three day party/celebration with your family and friends. Again nothing like mine, I love that part that says whoever walks through the door first wear the pants in the household. Also the lucky lady gets all those rings! However something we all have in common is a wedding cake, I believe all the weddings from my research have always had a wedding cake. “The term “wedding cake” has been possible as long as anything which could be called a cake had any place in the celebration of weddings.”(Charsley, 1988, pg. 233). I feel it is very important for each culture to......

Common Law

...which the term is used: Common law may mean the law created by the common law courts in contrast to the law created by the Court of Chancery, which was called equity. Common law may m • ean all the law created by the courts, including the law of equity, as opposed to the law created by Parliament, that is legislation. In this sense, common law may be also termed ‘judge- made’ law. • Common law may refer to a legal tradition which defi nes the English legal system and other derivative legal systems as opposed to the civilian legal tradition exemplifi ed by the systems of mainland Europe. Apart from England and Wales other examples of a common law tradition are to be found in the legal systems of the states of the United States (with the exception of Louisiana), Canada, and Australia. Common law in this sense refers to forms of law- making, particularly judge- made law, which is governed by the doctrine of judicial precedent. The characteristic feature of the civilian systems is that law is to be found in codes made by the legislature. The civilian tradition is seen in the legal systems of France and Germany. While the French law of contract is codifi ed and to be found in legislative form, the English law of contract is to be found mainly in the decisions of judges as reported in 7 Common law and equity the law reports. As will be seen, a fi rst issue when reading cases is to determine what the law is, as judges will not usually clearly state the rule upon......
