'Everyman' and Shakespeare's Hamlet - Comparing the Medieval World View to the Modern
[ send me this essay ]
This 5 page report discusses the fact that 'Hamlet' (1604) and 'Everyman' offer an excellent comparison between styles and dramatic license of their authors but even more clearly, they show the differing attitudes and visions of the world from the perspective of medieval times as compared to modern. The dark brooding prince compared to the hapless Everyman demonstrate a combination of self-absorption and helplessness in the face of the spiritual realm and the questions it provokes. No secondary sources.

'Jane Eyre' & 'Sense and Sensibility'
[ send me this essay ]
A 9 page comparative analysis of the main characters in these two novels. The writer posits that Austen and Bronte made use of characterization, dialogue and narration to show how Elinor, Marianne and Jane represent the intellectual and passionate properties of womanhood, with the further intent of reflecting control of passion rather than hysteria/madness. The writer proposes that in every instance, the characters' inward reflections are meant to support a revision of the female experience, not to support archetypes. Bibliography lists 10 sources.
