“Der Sturm” ist das letzte Theaterstück, das Shakespeare geschrieben hat. Erzählt wird die Geschichte des Zauberers und Herzogs von Mailand Prospero und dessen Tochter Miranda, die auf einer Insel gestrandet sind. Beide mussten vor Prosperos Bruder Antonio fliehen, der Mailand angegriffen hatte.

Seminar paper from the year 2009 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, grade: 2,0, RWTH Aachen University (Lehrstuhl fur Anglistische Literaturwissenschaft), course: William Shakespeare: The Tempest and the Merchant of Venice, language: English, abstract: In Shakespeare's "The Merchant of Venice" we are confronted with a lot of opposites: friendship versus hatred, male versus female power, mercy versus justice or Judaism versus Christianity; just to name a few examples. By contrasting these opposing themes, Shakespeare evolves a lot of problems, which raise unsolvable questions. If we take for example Shylock, we constantly change our opinion about him: on the one hand we dislike him for he is villainous, greedy and merciless, and on the other hand we pity him because of his losses and his isolation in society. Yet, one cannot make a clear-cut statement about him for he bears opposing characteristics in his attitude. So, one can see, Shakespeare does not only depict opposites, but he also creates opposing opinions about the same topic in our heads. Thus, the oppositions he shows in his play should be looked at more carefully. Therefore, I want to focus on the contrast between Jewish usury and Christian ventures, for the conflict between both groups constantly leads to essential problems in the play. As a preliminary step, I want to look at the historical background, an important impact, which influenced the play's final conception. In the following, I want to compare the attitudes of Christians towards Jews and vice versa. In addition to that, in this paper I want to concentrate on the instance that complicates the tension between Christians and Jews: money. Money binds both opposing groups - Christians and Jews - unwillingly together and causes essential conflicts. Therefore, I want to analyse how Christianity and Judaism is interwoven by money, usury, ventures and the characters' behaviour. Therefore, a depiction and an analysis

Dieses Buch markiert eine wichtige Vertiefung im Denken und politischen Wirken von Erich Fromm: Der Charakter eines einzelnen, aber auch der vieler Menschen wird sich nur ändern, wenn sich die wirtschaftliche, kulturelle und gesellschaftliche Lebenspraxis ändert, die die Gesellschafts-Charakterorientierung hervorbringt. In einer krank machenden oder gar kranken Gesellschaft werden die individuellen Bemühungen um eine produktive Charakterorientierung kaum Aussicht auf Erfolg haben – geht man mit Fromm davon aus, dass der Mensch ein Bezogenheitswesen ist und dass sein Bezogensein auf eine soziale Gruppe von existenzieller Bedeutung für ihn ist. Die Frage, ob das gesellschaftliche Zusammenleben das psychische Gelingen des Menschen fördert, hemmt oder gar vereitelt, steht deshalb im Mittelpunkt von Wege aus einer kranken Gesellschaft. Fromm fragt deshalb in diesem Buch nach alternativen Gesellschaftsentwürfen zur vorherrschenden kapitalistischen Gesellschaft. Am Ende des Buches macht er konkrete Vorschläge, wie eine psychisch gesunde Gesellschaft gestaltet und organisiert sein müsste. Der Ausgangspunkt ist eine Konfrontation des kranken Menschen der Gegenwart mit seinen wahren Bedürfnissen. Die in Kapitel 3 ausgeführte Bedürfnislehre findet sich in dieser Ausführlichkeit nirgends mehr sonst in den Schriften Fromms. Die Tatsache spezifisch menschlicher Bedürfnisse und die Notwendigkeit ihrer Befriedigung ist die Basis eines normativen Humanismus, der den Versuch unternimmt, das zu formulieren, was seelische Gesundheit in der jeweiligen Gesellschaft heißt. In Kapitel 4 beleuchtet Fromm die gesamte Wertungsfrage „krank-gesund“ beim Einzelnen wie bei der Gesellschaft.

The Merchant of Venice has always been regarded as one of Shakespeare's most interesting plays. Before the nineteenth century critical reaction is relatively fragmentary. However between then and the late twentieth century the critical tradition reveals the tremendous vitality of the play to evoke emotion in the theatre and in the study. Since the middle of the twentieth century reactions to the drama have been influenced by the Nazi destruction of European Jewry. The first volume to document the full tradition of criticism of The Merchant of Venice includes an extensive introduction which charts the reactions to the play up to the beginning of the twenty first century and reflects changing reactions to prejudice in this period. Material by a variety of critics appears here for the first time since initial publication. Reactions are included from: Malone, Hazlitt, Jameson, Heine, Knight, Lewes, Halliwell-Phillips, Furnivall, Irving, Ruskin, Swinburne, Masefield, Gollancz and Quiller-Couch.

This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1905 edition. Excerpt: ...as his own" (Dowden). For the references to the poet's age.in the Sonnets, see p. 41 above. 3. Furrows. Cf. Sonn. 2 above, and Rich. III. i. 3. 229. 4. Expiate. Bring to an end. Cf. Rich. III. iii. 3. 23: "Make haste; the hour of death is expiate." Here, as there, Steevens conjectures "expirate," which White and Hudson adopt. Surely there is no need of coining a word to replace one which S. twice uses and which can be plausibly explained. Malone quotes Chapman's Byron's Conspiracie, in which an old courtier speaks of himself as " A poor and expiate humour of the court." XXIII 1. Vnperfect. Used by S. only here; but unperfectness occurs in Oth. ii. 3. 298. Imperfect we find in Sonn. 43. 11 and elsewhere, and imperfection six times in the plays. On the present passage, cf. Cor. v. 3. 40: --"Like a dull actor now, I have forgot my part, and I am out, Even to a full disgrace." 2. Besides. For the prepositional use, cf. T. N, iv. 2. 92: "Alas, sir, how fell you besides your five wits?" 3. Replete with too much rage. The rage overcoming self-control. 5. For fear of trust. Fearing to trust myself. Schmidt makes it = " doubting of being trusted;" but the context clearly confirms the explanation I have given. Dowden calls attention to the construction of the first eight lines, 5, 6 referring to 1, 2, and 7, 8, to 3. 4 6. Ceremony. Hudson says that the word "is here used as a trisyllable, as if spelt cer'mony;" but how he would scan the verse I cannot imagine. The word is clearly a quadrisyllable, as almost always in S. 9. Books. Sewell reads " looks;" but the old reading is supported by 13 below. The books, as Dowden remarks, are probably the manuscript books in which the poet writes his sonnets. 12. That tongue. Probably = any tongue, however eloquent, ...
