1282009 551 00 PM 5 QUESTION 1 Hamlet III 139 To be or not to be that is the question Whether 39tis nobler in the mind to suffer The slings and arrows of outrageous fortune Or to take arms against a sea of troubles o Hamlet poses the problem of whether to commit suicide as a logical question To be or not to be that is to live or not to live He then weighs the 3wquot living and dying 0 To be in Hamlet s eyes is a passive state to quotsufferquot outrageous fortune39s blows while not being is the action of opposing those blows Living is in effect a kind of slow death a submission to fortune39s power And by opposing end them To dieito sleep No more and by a sleep to say we end The heartache and the thousand natural shocks That esh is heir to 39tis a consummation Devoutly to be wish d To die to sleep To sleep perchance to dreamiay there 39s the rub For in that sleep of death what dreams may come When we have shuf ed off this mortal coil Must give us pauseithere39s the respect That makes calamity of so long life For who would bear the whips and scoms of time a mist lil country from whose bourn No traveller returns puzzles the will And f rather hm i39ll we have Than y to others that we know not of Thus conscience does make cowards of us all Hamlet tries to take comfort in the idea that death is really quotno morequot than a kind of sleep What disturbs Hamlet however is that if death is a kind of sleep then it might entail its own dreams which would become a new lifeithese Ill n f and the hereafter is Hamlet is saying no one would choose to live except that the dread of something after deat makes people submit to the suffering of their lives rather than go to 1mpossible QUESTION 2 The Tempest IIi Gonzalo imagines a utopian society on the island over which he would rule 0 I the commonwealth I would by contraries execute all things for no kind of traf c would I admit no name of magistrate No occupation all men idle all and women too but innocent and pure no sovereignty No Fear Shakespeare version In my kingdom I d do everything di erently from the way it s usually done I wouldn t allow any commerce There d be no officials or administrators There d be no schooling or literature There d be no riches no poverty and no servantsinone No contracts or inheritance laws no division of the land into private farms no metal working agriculture or vineyards There d be no work Men would have nothing to do and women also but they d be innocent and pure There d be no kingship POWER Usurpation Vs PreservationEmancipation Post colonialism Case Study 0 Studies the effects of settling on the native balance Because of Social Construction in order to offer protection one must rst have controldomination o The nearly uninhabited island presents the sense of in nite possibility to almost everyone who lands there Prospero has found it in its isolation an ideal place to school his daughter Caliban once alone on the island now Prospero s slave laments that he had been his own king Iii3447345 Even the Island is rst usurped and then freed O Gonzalo s utopian vision in Act 11 scene i is undercut by a sharp retort from the usually foolish Sebastian and Antonio When Gonzalo says that there would be no commerce or work or sovereignty in his society Sebastian replies yet he would be king on t and Antonio adds The latter end of his commonwealth forgets the beginning IIi1567157 o Gonzalo s fantasy thus involves him ruling the island while seeming not to rule it and in this he becomes a kind of parody of Prospero 0 While there are many representatives of the colonial impulse in the play quot Jl39uj JLju 6 Maxim i jibKS mm mprrxn new 11 We might develop sympathy for him at first when Prospero seeks him out merely to abuse him and when we see him tormented by spirits However this sympathy is made more difficult by his willingness to abase himself before Stephano in Act II scene ii Even as Caliban plots to kill one colonial master Prospero in Act III scene ii he sets up another Stephano QUESTION 3 Othello IIi Iago That Cassio loves her I do well believe t That she loves him tis apt and of great credit The Moor howbeit that I endure him not Is of a constant loving noble nature And I dare think he ll prove to Desdemona A most dear husband Now I do love her too Not out of absolute lustithough peradventure I stand accountant for as great a sini But partly led to diet my revenge For that I do 39I Hi hLSi Idmj 7 A quot M The thought whereof Doth like a poisonous mineral gnaw my inwards L l And nothing can or shall content my soul 73M 391 lm 1 quot wife for wife 0 Iago is saying that he thinks Othello may have slept with his own wife hath leaped into my seat Or failing so yet that I put the Moor At least into v Q m i a That judgment cannot cure Which thing to do If this poor trash of Venice whom I trace For his quick hunting stand the putting on I ll have our Michael Cassio on the hip Abuse him to the Moor in the right garb For I fear Cassio with my nightcape too For making him egregiously an ass And practicing upon his peace and quiet Tis here but yet confused Knavery s plain face is never seen till used 0 Iago is revealing his plan He will tell Othello that Cassio has been having an affair with his wife Desdemona This is with the hope that it will lead to Othello thanking loving and rewarding Iago whilst allowing Iago to also punish Cassio whom he also believes Emilia his wife has been unfaithful with 0 yes Iago thinks his wife Emilia has slept with both Cassio and Othello SzUESTION 4 Othello I iii Virtue a fig 39tis in ourselves that we are thus or thus Our bodies are our gardens to the which our wills are gardeners so that if we will plant nettles or sow lettuce set hyssop and weed up thyme supply it with one gender of herbs or distract it with many either to have it sterile with idleness or manured with industry why the power and corrigible authority of this lies in our wills o Iago is telling Roderigo that man decides his own destiny and is in complete control of his own emotions or actions If the balance of our lives had not one scale of reason to poise another of sensuality the blood and baseness of our natures would conduct us to most preposterous conclusions but we have reason to cool our raging motions our carnal stings our unbitted lusts whereof I take this that you call love to be a sect or scion 0 Now Iago says that what Roderigo calls love is just a sect or scion of lust just a preposterous conclusion or gment made up to ll man s more camalbasic needs SzUESTION 5 The Merchant of Venice IIIii Bassanio is musing to himself while he tries to choose the right casket to win Portia s hand So may the outward shows be least themselves the show of e a Ll In quot m amned error but some sober brow 0 He is saying that ornaments hide the truth with pleasing images or words like religion and law He doesn t think that external beauty counts for anything There is no vice so simple but assumes Some mark of virtue on his outward parts How many cowards whose hearts are all as false To render them redoubted Look on And you shall see Which therein works a miracle in nature Making them lightest that wear most of it M So are those crisped snaky golden locks Which make such wanton gambols with the wind Upon supposed fairness often known To be the dowry of a second head The skull that bred them in the sepulchre Thus ornament is but the guiled shore To a most dangerous sea the beauteous scarf Veiling an Indian beauty in a word The gt7 0 Here Shakespeare is alluding to the coming of the Age of Enlightenment where science forces everything one believes to be questioned To entrap the wisest 397 Hard food for Midas l gt i Nor none of thee thou pale and co 39Tween man and man but thou 3 Which rather threatenest than dost promise aught moves me IL l s 3977 joy be the consequence o Bassanio now reveals the reason for choosing the lead casket One should not choose love super cially because like gold amp silver the beauty is only external and has no merit besides being attractive Meagre lead is chosen because instead of promise lead proves its usefulness with its honest paleness SzUESTION 6 Henry IV I ii Prince HalHarry reveals his great plan in this monologue I know you all and will awhile uphold The unyoked humour of your idleness Yet herein will 391 w 39 Who doth permit the base contagious clouds To smother up his beauty from the world That when he please again to be himself Being wanted he may be more wondered at By 1 the foul and ugly r Of vapours that did seem to strangle him If all the year were playing holidays To sport would be as tedious as to work But when they seldom come they wishedfor come And nothing pleaseth but rare accidents 0 Just as the sun permits itself to be covered by clouds so that the people who miss its light will be all the happier when it reappears he too will eventually emerge from the cloud cover of his lowerclass friends So when this loose behaviour I throw off And pay the debt I never promised By how much better than my word I am By so much shall I falsify men s hopes And like bright metal on a sullen ground My reformation glitt ring o er my fault Shall show more goodly and attract more eyes Than that which hath no foil to set it off I ll so offend to make offence a skill behavior he sets himself up to appear all the more glorious when he finally decides to earn their approval since they will not take his high merit for granted This quote is ILquot U Uwv fglfl if It also exposes the complexities and ambiguities of Harry s mind showing an apparently virtuous young man who can manipulate and lie to others to achieve his somewhat selfish albeit important goals SzUESTION 7 The Taming 0fThe Shrew Katharina is speaking to Petruchio here This is when Petruchio proves that he has indeed tamed her and turned her into a proper English lady Fie fie unknit that threatening unkind brow And dart not scomful glances from those eyes To wound thy lord thy king thy governor It blots thy beauty as frosts do bite the meads Confounds thy fame as whirlwinds shake fair buds And in no sense is meet or amiable A woman moved is like a fountain troubled Muddy illseeming thick bereft of beauty And while it is so none so dry or thirsty Will deign to sip or touch one drop of it Thy head thy s thee And for thy maintenance commits his body To painful labour both by sea and land To watch the night in storms the day in cold Wl quot secure and safe And craves no other tribute at thy hand Too little payment for so great a debt 0 Katherina is saying that a woman s husband is her sole protector and that the wife owes him her life She must provide love fair looks and true obedience in order to be worthy of her husband Such duty as the subject owes the prince And when she is froward peevish sullen sour And not obedient to his honest will What is she but a foul contending rebel And graceless traitor to her loving lord I am ashamed that women are so simple To offer war where they should kneel for peace Or seek for rule supremacy and sway When they are l quotr a lv Why are 21 1 Unapt to toil and trouble in the world But that our soft conditions and our hearts Should well agree with our external parts 0 Here she says that women are made only to serve because a woman is fragile and weak and without a man a woman cannot survive Come come you froward and unable worms My mind hath been as big as one of yours My heart as great my reason haply more To bandy word for word and frown for frown But now I see our lances are but straws Our strength as weak our weakness past compare That seeming to be most which we indeed least are Then vail your stomachs for it is no boot And place your hands below your husband s foot In token of which duty if he please My hand is ready may it do him ease SzUESTION 8 The Tempest
