How have Shakespeare’s writings helped to develop the English Language?
Tragedy- In literature, the concept of tragedy refer to a series of unfortunate events by which one or more of the literary characters in the story undergo several misfortunes, which finally culminate into a disaster of ‘epic proportions’. Tragedy is generally built up in 5 stages: a) happy times b) the introduction of a problem c) the problem worsens to a crisis/ dilemma d) the characters are unable to prevent the problem from taking over e) the problem results in some catastrophic, grave ending, which is the tragedy culminated.
(Ex: Tiresias’ prophecy to Odysseus).
(Ex: The church choir robes were too long and needed to be hymned.)
One of the cleverest and most morbid puns in Romeo and Juliet comes as a joke from a fatally-stabbed Mercutio, who stops joking to explain that “tomorrow … you shall find me a grave man.” Grave means serious, but here it also alludes to his imminent death.
paradox in literature refers to the use of concepts/ ideas that are contradictory to one another, yet, when placed together they hold significant value on several levels. The uniqueness of paradoxes lies in the fact that a deeper level of meaning and significance is not revealed at first glace, but when it does crystallize, it provides astonishing insight.
Ex: Jumbo Shrimp
Ex: Mercutio is a foil for Romeo; Benvolio and Tybalt are also foils.
