Tipos de Obras de Shakespeare

Por Rebecca Ray

No importa lo que fueron nombrados, las obras de William Shakespeare seguirían siendo grandes obras de arte, por lo que puede no importar lo que los llamamos. Generalmente, sin embargo, Shakespeare escribió tres tipos de obras de teatro: Tragedia, Comedia e Historia. Estos nombres nos ayudan a comprender los arquetipos de una obra de teatro ya analizar mejor sus eventos. Después de todo, La Comedia de Romeo y Julieta sería un juego muy diferente de La Tragedia de Romeo y Julieta. Tal vez sería una farsa acerca de dos amantes de la estrella cruzada, condenados a sufrir errores de humor de la identidad y los servidores bumbling. No sería la historia de la aflicción con la que todos estamos tan familiarizados.

Elements of Shakespeare Romances | Shakespeare's Tragicomedies

Texto del Guión Gráfico

  • Shakespearean Romances
  • Shakespeare's Romances are characterized by: A conflict that gets resolved A central older male figure of noble descent A love interest Elements of the Supernatural Themes on a Grand Scale
  • Conflict Begins the Play / Resolved by the End
  • Central Older Male Figure of Nobility
  • Examples from The Tempest by William Shakespeare
  • Love Interest
  • On the way home from Alonso's daughter's wedding, a storm strikes their ship and shipwrecks Alonso, Ferdinand, Antonio, Gonzalo, Stephano, Trinculo, and Sebastian on an island. The men are split up, and Alonso thinks Ferdinand is dead.
  • Elements of the Supernatural
  • Prospero, Antonio, and Alonso. Prospero was the Duke of Milan before his brother Antonio (in a plot with Alonso, the King of Naples) usurped his throne and forced him to flee.
  • Themes on a Grander Scale
  • Miranda, Prospero's daughter, and Ferdinand run into each other on the island, and they instantly fall for one another. This is part of Prospero's plot to take back his rightful place as Duke of Milan.
  • Prospero has been studying sorcery for the 12 years he's been exiled. He causes the tempest to bring the boat with his brothers to the island. Ariel turns himself into a sea nymph and controls some of the men with music.
  • While Prospero regains his throne, the theme of the play looks at restoration and forgiveness on a grander scale. If Prospero can forgive his brother's treachery, surely it is possible for real people to do the same. In doing so, both peace and stability are rewards for forgiveness. Instead of pursuing pure revenge, Prospero curbs his bloodlust and still regains his power.
