saving, the people of the town turn to the one who saved them before–Oedipus–because the townspeople
think Oedipus has tapped into the knowledge of the gods. Goodness, are they wrong or what!

Camelot is generally considered an idyllic place, and the core values of Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table uphold the importance of equality among all. In this es.say, consider how the downfall of Camelot ultimately occurs. Is it through the fault of one or two individuals, or do the issues extend well beyond a small group of characters? In answering this question, consider the representation of both men and women, and explain the series of events that lead to the end of this mythical realm. Be certain to use examples and/or quotes from the text to support your answer.

The impact the daguerreotype had on the middle class cannot be overstated.  Before the nineteenth century only the wealthy had the means to commemorate their likeness.  The daguerreotype was the great equalizer.  For the first time, everyday people could now make their own visual history.  In our age of smart phones, social media and selfies, it is difficult to imagine what it must have been like to have an image of oneself, one’s family, dog, vacation.  Can you imagine being able to have your very first portrait taken?  What are your thoughts and opinions on that?  Spend some time looking at daguerreotypes and choose an image that is fascinating to you and copy and paste it into your post.  What do you think the image says about the person in it?  Would you have liked to know them?  Do you think they are different than you?  What would you imagine their interests, lives etc. would be like? 

We take so many pictures of ourselves for everyone to see in an instant.  What is your favorite picture of yourself and why?  Where are you and what are you doing wearing, etc.  Is it difficult to choose just one?   If possible include it in the discussion.

***

Julia Margaret Cameron famously made portraits that were slightly out of focus. Did her approach help or hinder portraiture?

Also – if you were to have a carte-de-visite created for yourself what would it look like, what would you be wearing, what type of clothing, furniture and props would you include?

 Free will versus fate is a theme visible right from the beginning of the play by Christopher Marlowe, The Tragical History of Doctor Faustus.. It starts with Faustus contemplating his area of study. “To practice magic and concealed arts: Yet not your words only, but mine own fantasy, That will receive no object; for my head But ruminates on necromantic skill. Philosophy is odious and obscure; Both law and physic are for petty wits;  Divinity is basest of the three, Unpleasant, harsh, contemptible, and vile: ’Tis magic, magic, that hath ravish’d me” (Marlowe). From this moment at the start of the play, we can see that Faustus does, in fact, utilize free will. He makes it clear at this point that he is unwavering in his decision to choose his next steps by gallivanting toward magic over the other mentioned studies. However, these choices Faustus makes lead him to lose his free will at the hands of Lucifer. Free will shifts to fate in this story after Faustus signs his soul over to the devil. “The devil will come, and Faustus must be damn’d. O, I’ll leap up to my God!—Who pulls me down?— See, see, where Christ’s blood streams in the firmament! One drop would save my soul, half a drop: ah, my Christ!” (Marlowe). Upon realizing his imminent damnation his decision had led him to, Faustus tries to call out to God for mercy. Of course Faustus realizes the error of his choices and accepts that he has lost free will and surrenders to Hell with the devil.

       The Role of power, I feel, starts at the beginning of the play; it is obvious who and what the energy is coming from. Faustus has ideas of what he would do with all the power he is going to be given or is coming soon. Faustus imagines the vast amount of wealth; he also begins drawing on the map of the continents he wishes to form a land on and to be his. Faustus is also answering the mysteries of the universe and the galaxy we are placed upon. In this play, Faustus also realizes the powers he does not possess, and the ability to make time stop was hard for him to accept; he regrets many choices and his sins. In this play, you can tell that there are times when Faustus gets cocky with his power but also has second thoughts about his power; there are also times when he will stop at nothing to gain the control Faustus feels deserves. Still, to achieve that power, there are expenses he needs to pay to receive the power he so willingly wants to have. Throughout the story, you will also see that he wants to be heroic and has a sense of respect in his efforts to gain control. In his efforts, he uses jokes and magic to hurt people who don’t deserve it and then makes him evil and wicked, showing everyone how much of a coward and weak he is. as it stated in the play,

“He surfeits upon cursed necromancy.

Nothing so sweet as magic is to him,

Which he prefers before his chiefest bliss:

And this the man that in his study sits.” (Robinson), he loved using magic and is something that he regretted greatly because he abused the power he was given, and like is said before it showed just how evil he was and the This power wasn’t deserved, and it was getting taken by him because of his own choices. In times like these you cant take advantage of something that is supposed to be a gift to you , and you cant take advantage of the power as well.

“All the world’s a stage and all the men and women merely players” -William Shakespeare

“Life is a play.  It’s not its length, buts its performance that counts”  -Seneca

Playwrights have, throughout history, been tasked with providing a monumentally difficulty in providing a snapshot of humanity told through the lens of humanity about humanity using humanity.  In another way, drama becomes the essence or reflection to the truth regarding society and what the society is comprised of.  This can be a very richly rewarding experience validating the norms and customs of the present while also expanding them from the limitations woven into the fabrics of society at that time.  And, over time, drama has an uncanny ability in not only surviving from its inception but evolving into something more…so where drama was once a snapshot of a moment in time, it begins to change into a photo album chronicling elements, ideas, concepts, and themes that have not only served as reflective but proactive in our continual understanding.  Consider these expanded boundaries as you read drama, think reflectively (and introspectively) on its relation to you and beyond you.  There is a reason that plays written hundreds of years ago survive to the day (and are adapted into the present day of affairs too).

For your final out of class assignment you are being asked to examine one of the options below.  You should consider meeting ALL of the various components for the writing and know that your thesis, your direction, your development will be ENTIRELY up to you.  You will be expected to demonstrate organizational flow, fully developed ideas, have a consistently focused argument, and a strong consideration of evidence to sustain your argument as it develops.

The options to choose from are: 

•  determine the degree of effect that the play, Hamlet, signifies challenges BETWEEN the concepts of the divine and the humankind that signify their assured mutuality by examining their simultaneous similar contradictions (meaning moments in which scenes within the play exhibit contradictory allusions to opposites that, in effect, present a cohesion instead).
