|1.||The Winter's Tale|
A play written by William Shakespeare circa 1610. Absolutely brilliant, as was the rest of his work. This play deals with Leontes, king of Sicily, who believes (mistakenly) that his wife Hermione is having an affair with his best friend Polixenes, king of Bohemia. Leontes appoints Camillo to poison Polixenes and imprisons Hermione, but Camillo believes in Polixenes' innocence and they leave for Bohemia together. Hermione has a baby while incarcerated (Leontes, naturally, accuses it of being Polixenes') and orders it to be burnt... Read the play if you'd like to know how it ends ;)
The Winter's Tale is what is known as a "problem play" as it has intense psychological drama in the first three acts but in the last two it is fairly comedic and results in a happy ending.
How exactly do you exemplify this?!?! Example: An example of a character in The Winter's Tale is Paulina, Hermione's lady-in-waiting.
Female characters in two of William Shakespeare's plays entitled, "Merchant of Venice" and "Julius Caesar".
i.e. In, "Julius Caesar" Act II scene iv:
I pr'ythee, boy, run to the Senate-house;
Stay not to answer me, but get thee gone.
Why dost thou stay?
To know my errand, madam.
I would have had thee there, and here again,
Ere I can tell thee what thou shouldst do there.—
Aside. O constancy, be strong upon my side!
Set a huge mountain 'tween my heart and tongue!
I have a man's mind, but a woman's might.
How hard it is for women to keep counsel!—
Art thou here yet?

The Tragedy of Macbethmore...
by William Shakespeare
SCENE I. A desert place.
Thunder and lightning. Enter three Witches
When shall we three meet again
In thunder, lightning, or in rain?
When the hurlyburly's done,
When the battle's lost and won.
That will be ere the set of sun.
Where the place?
Upon the heath.
There to meet with Macbeth.
I come, Graymalkin!
Fair is foul, and foul is fair:
Hover through the fog and filthy air.
SCENE II. A camp near Forres.
Alarum within. Enter DUNCAN, MALCOLM, DONALBAIN, LENNOX, with Attendants, meeting a bleeding Sergeant
What bloody man is that? He can report,
As seemeth by his plight, of the revolt
The newest state.
This is the sergeant
Who like a good and hardy soldier fought
'Gainst my captivity. Hail, brave friend!
Say to the king the knowledge of the broil
As thou didst leave it.
Doubtful it stood;
As two spent swimmers, that do cling together
And choke their art. The merciless Macdonwald--
Worthy to be a rebel, for to that
The multiplying villanies of nature
Do swarm upon him--from the western isles
Of kerns and gallowglasses is supplied;
And fortune, on his damned quarrel smiling,
Show'd like a rebel's whore: but all's too weak:
For brave Macbeth--well he deserves tha...

Undeniably the most influential man in the porno industry. By altering many of the titles from his thirty-seven plays, the Shakespearean theme in the bedroom--or anywhere else for that matter--has been an immediate success, beginning with 'The Secret Sex Lives of Romeo and Juliet' (1969). Other raunchy adaptations of the famous bard's work consist of titles like: A Midsummer Night's Cream, A Midsummer's Wet Dream, A Midsummer Night's Creampie, King Rear, Loves Labia Licked, Hardcore Lady Macbeth, In The Flesh (an adaptation of Macbeth), Measure for Measure (involving two gay department store salesmen), The Taming of the Screw, Titties Andronicus, Ebony Andronicus, Much Ado About Nuttin', Two Gentlemen DO Verona, Two Gentlemen IN Verona, Two Gentlemen In Each Other, The Merchant of Penis, Penis and Adonis, The Merry Whores of Windsor, The Merry Wives of Bukkake, The Tragedy of Julius Creamer, Julius' Semen, As You Like It...

Despite what some people who aren't from the suburbs claim, the presence of "wiggers" in the suburbs is about as likely as the presence of ginger-haired leprechauns in Ireland. As a lifelong suburbanite I can say from my experiences that anyone close to a "wigger" tends to lower class and it's something they actually can identify with. However the suburbs may be partly responsible for the consumption of a lot of shitty pop rap and the commercialization of gangster rap, but few white suburbans actually end up trying to emulate these pop icons. People in the suburbs actually have jobs, and the people who are constantly buying things probably don't actually have the money to pay for them and are probably putting themselves in debt. The suburbs are only boring if you're boring. People in the suburbs have more time and access for a broader range of musical taste, so it's great if you're a real music enthusiast, if you're not there's the accessible top 40 crap for you. Some suburban kids may waste their time with pointless parties and drug use but there's plenty of other things to do in the comfort of the suburbs like starting your own band, writing a novel, preforming Shakespeare's plays in your backyard, skateboarding, etc. Boredom necessitates creativity. The cliques only matter if you're a stupid superficial person. At the end of the day ...more...
