Working record of my drama exam.

In the beginning of the preparation of the flesh is mine I was working with lethaniel and Dillon on two separate scenes but because of complications as a group we have decided that they should do a scene together and I shall get a new partner. That partner was mackai Byrne.

He was an excellent partner as he did not play around during the lessons matter of fact he came up with the idea of practicing outside of the classroom while the others practiced inside so we could minimise background noise.

The scene that we performed was act 1 scene 1.

 

I portrayed the character of Agamemnon whilst he portrayed the protagonist, Achilles.

Agamemnon is the main antagonist of the play, although he is a Greek mythological character in this specific play he represents Israel. Hecuba, who isn’t part of our scene , represents Palestine but in the original mythology she represents Troy.

 

Achilles is an achean warrior in Greek mythology but in this flesh is mine he is the greatest solider to fight for the Israelites.

Hamlet soliloquy analysis

shakespeare uses the metaphor slings and arrows of outrageous fortune or to take arms against a sea of troubles, and by opposing death?to die. This quote is used to define what hamlet is going through to kill his uncle or to commit suicide as it would be cowardly not too do either. The saying slings and arrows of outrageous fortune is defining that hamlet is being missiled with the mental tormention of killing his incestious uncle which causes his insanity. The rest of the quote is basically explaining that hamlet is battling the thoughts of suicide. The line “and opposing death?to die” is I believe is that not inflicting death to Claudius will forcibly make him kill him selve.

To be, or not to be: that is the question:
Whether ’tis nobler in the mind to suffer
The slings and arrows of outrageous fortune,
Or to take arms against a sea of troubles,
And by opposing end them? To die: to sleep;
No more; and by a sleep to say we

Enders game

Enders game is a story about the protagonist Andrew ‘ender’ wiggin.

the book begins with the removal of Enders monitor which is a futuristic device that lets his superiors connect to his body without any removal his free will, it also lets them see through his eyes to “protect” him from harm. The real reason however for the monitors removal is that they believe that he is ready to join the battle school. This is because over the period of 50 years the alien race ‘buggers’ have invaded earth twice and the humans are taking precautions to prevent a third one.

lord of the flies chapter 1 summary.

A fair-haired boy lowers himself down some rocks toward a lagoon on a beach. At the lagoon, he encounters another boy, who is chubby, intellectual, and wears thick glasses. The fair-haired boy introduces himself as Ralph and the chubby one introduces himself as Piggy. Through their conversation, we learn that in the midst of a war, a transport plane carrying a group of English boys was shot down over the ocean. It crashed in thick jungle on a deserted island. Scattered by the wreck, the surviving boys lost each other and cannot find the pilot.

Ralph and Piggy look around the beach, wondering what has become of the other boys from the plane. They discover a large pink and cream-colored conch shell, which Piggy realizes could be used as a kind of makeshift trumpet. He convinces Ralph to blow through the shell to find the other boys. Summoned by the blast of sound from the shell, boys start to straggle onto the beach. The oldest among them are around twelve; the youngest are around six. Among the group is a boys’ choir, dressed in black gowns and led by an older boy named Jack. They march to the beach in two parallel lines, and Jack snaps at them to stand at attention. The boys taunt Piggy and mock his appearance and nickname.

The boys decide to elect a leader. The choirboys vote for Jack, but all the other boys vote for Ralph. Ralph wins the vote, although Jack clearly wants the position. To placate Jack, Ralph asks the choir to serve as the hunters for the band of boys and asks Jack to lead them. Mindful of the need to explore their new environment, Ralph chooses Jack and a choir member named Simon to explore the island, ignoring Piggy’s whining requests to be picked. The three explorers leave the meeting place and set off across the island.

The prospect of exploring the island exhilarates the boys, who feel a bond forming among them as they play together in the jungle. Eventually, they reach the end of the jungle, where high, sharp rocks jut toward steep mountains. The boys climb up the side of one of the steep hills. From the peak, they can see that they are on an island with no signs of civilization. The view is stunning, and Ralph feels as though they have discovered their own land. As they travel back toward the beach, they find a wild pig caught in a tangle of vines. Jack, the newly appointed hunter, draws his knife and steps in to kill it, but hesitates, unable to bring himself to act. The pig frees itself and runs away, and Jack vows that the next time he will not flinch from the act of killing. The three boys make a long trek through dense jungle and eventually emerge near the group of boys waiting for them on the beach.

act 4 scene 3

In a public show of concern, Claudiusexplains to his assembled courtiers that he cannot jail his nephew becauseHamlet remains too popular with the people. A riot would inevitably occur if he punished Hamlet for his part in Polonius‘ death, so instead he will send the young man into exile.

act 4 scene 2 hamlet

When Rosencrantz and Guildenstern finally find the Prince and ask him for Polonius, he bewilders them with answers that seem to be riddles. He tells them that sharing information with mere sponges and parasites of the court is beneath him, the son of a king.

act 4 scene 1

Claudius, flanked by Rosencrantz and Guildenstern,finds Gertrude and questions her as to Hamlet’s whereabouts. She asks to be left alone with the King and, after Rosencrantz and Guildenstern leave, she agitatedly tells him that she has seen a horror. Claudius wants to know what happened and asks after her son’s welfare. She answers that Hamlet is madder than a storm at sea, and she describes the killing of Polonius. Realizing that he himself might have been the person hiding behind the tapestry, Claudius deplores Hamlet’s violence, but he blames himself for not having been sterner with Hamlet from the beginning. He worries what he will tell his subjects; Gertrude tells him that Hamlet is contrite and has promised to dispose of the body.
