Video: Introduction to Shakespeare: Life and Works This video provides a crash course introduction to William Shakespeare's life, plays, and poetry. First we're going to introduce the cast of characters. Thank you for making Crash Course possible, thanks for watching, and as we say in my home town, don't forget to be awesome. Chaos ensues as everyone scrambles to lead Rome. The caste system was different because it was based on the separation of Purisha into four different parts. Well, let's talk about it. What lessons if any did each of the characters learn? Also, we measured their volume by using a cylinder with distilled water, then we have measured the volume, and then we put in the metal and recorded the total volumes.
And then he stabs himself and falls into bed with Desdemona. Firstly we obtained three different solids a piece of aluminum, a piece of copper and a piece of iron, and we measured their masses by using the balance. While it strives to acknowledge diversity, it also promotes color consciousness by rejecting color-blind solutions. Oh, a ghost is moving my desk, it must be time for the open letter. First of all, the computerized fuel gauge was not working, and a maintenance worker said , incorrectly, that the plane was still certified to fly. Hence, the object that has a greater mass: volume ratio than water will sink. Another example would be the Persian-American father, who is accused by a gun-store owner to be a danger to society, The father denies this fact, but ends up shooting a child.
His conviction in Desdemona's guilt is finally broken when Emilia explains what happened with the handkerchief - about how she was told to steal it and plant it with Cassio. It's by far the most romantically oriented of the four. Othello had told Cassio to be on guard duty at the party - bouncer or something like that - and not to get drunk. Othello's kind of a hero but without agency. Later Plays Next up is one of his great comedies, Twelfth Night. She goes off to chat with Cassio - remember, he's one of Othello's lieutenants who's been promoted above Iago - and Iago sees that Cassio takes her hand as they walk off.
You've probably heard the oft-parodied 'Shall I compare thee to a summer's day? Divide the mass by the volume to get the density. This is made up of lines of iambic pentameter that don't rhyme. So even back then, there was always a desire for snappy special effects, and this one had a pretty serious consequence. That would have been awesome. Almost all the ethnicities depicted in Crash question the perception others have their particular group, but at the same time affirm the different stereotypes surrounding their ethnic group. Well, except for when he kills Polonius for the unforgivable sin of hiding behind curtains.
Then has the nerve to warn Othello about being jealous. Priest had to keep order in cosmos, and Aztec religion was Cyclical and punctuated by sinister disasters and believed the end will be of a massive apocalypse and the priest avoided it general by human sacrifice. As he dies, hamlet charges horatio with telling his story, as though only in death will horatio be able to make a coherent narrative out of all of his delay and wavering and ambivalence. Measure the mass of the plasticine by weighing it on the balance. We all come from different places and different cultures and we need to learn to accept and respect one another so that we can all get along in this society. Sorry, I'm scared of ghosts.
We've covered a bunch of his plays and laid down a timeline for when they were written and how they relate to each other; we've briefly touched on his poems, both his sonnets and his longer poems. Hamlet is unfairly pressed to a sinful act. Unfortunately, William Shakespeare died in 1616 - that's another date that we have associated with his life. It would be too much of a coincidence for two fuel pumps to independently fail, or two fuel lines to independently clog, so it was apparent that the left tank was out of fuel. The other two, Regan and Goneril, turn out to be really nasty and, again, pretty much everyone dies.
Iago then convinces Cassio that Cassio should appeal to Desdemona, since Desdemona's got Othello wrapped around her little finger, which might seem like a nice suggestion from Iago, but Iago basically turns to the audience and says, 'Nope, it's not nice. In her final moments, is she showing hamlet where her allegiance lies? Shakespeare makes Othello 'different,' but also really noble which is a contrast to his character in The Merchant of Venice who's Jewish, named Shylock, who's really stereotypically miserly and a villain , whereas Othello is a sympathetic hero. He sort of had been known for being a cool cucumber, so this is really out of character for him. You know, kill the father, marry the mother, become king? It's a really fun play - I highly recommend A Midsummer Night's Dream. Well, it was made entirely of wood, and it burned down in 1613, but the recreation is pretty good. So, go and check out our other videos on his notable plays and get to reading or seeing them for yourself! But does her choice make Gertrude a traitor? He's heir to a throne that should be his already, son to a mother he no longer trusts, nephew to the guy who possibly killed his dad, well, Ophelia's in a pretty tight spot, too. Around this time, Queen Elizabeth I dies and is succeeded by James I, the former king of Scotland - just a little historical context there.
So while Hamlet's off on some pirate ship, giving yet more soliloquies about his indecisiveness, Ophelia is serving her own beliefs about right and wrong and life and death, and she's doing it in a way that's clear. That will be our focus. The latest installment tackles the first half of Shakespeare's Hamlet. Quick personal side note: I think that is a terrible decision and a poor use of Ophelia's agency, as bad as her use of the flowers is good, suicide is a permanent to a temporary problem, even in Ophelia's case. They find a letter in his pocket that explains the whole plot.
And Iago starts to put his plan into action. You know, kill the father, marry the mother, become king. People refer to it as 'the Scottish play' because it's considered bad luck to say 'Macbeth' in the theatre - not really sure why. People born into noble families might have had their birthday recorded for posterity, similar to how these days you can find Brad Pitt's birthday by Googling it, but you probably can't find your nextdoor neighbor's birth date. And this is where the oedipal reading comes in, like is hamlet angry at claudius because claudius has done what hamlet always secretly wanted to do.
