What this play made me feel was indescribable but if I was forced to describe it I would describe it as emotionally. Firstly when Nora, Torvald Helmer’s wife, was behaving selfish and seemed like she only wanted Torvald for his money I knew I would not like her and Torvald I looked at him as he was a very loving man who cared so much about his wife. Reminder that those where only me making assumptions, which looking forward to the movie they aren’t as false.
The play continues and you start to figure out that Nora is incapable of many things just like understanding “scientific investigations”, I also got to the conclusion that she would do literally anything just for a little tiny amount of money, which is not correct because money is earned by hard work not acting immature towards your husband, is making her look like if she is her daughter instead of his wife.
But enough of the hating Nora, what I did really enjoy was probably Act 3, when she finally changes her attitude at the fullest and starts being the woman she should have been since the start of the play, what I definitely didn’t like was the intrigue in what they left us when she slams the door and they won’t say what happened after.
The Merchant of Venice, Shakespeare’s play, I find it sort of thought-provoking since it touched a very delicate topic, it did have some conflicting ideas that made me overthink some of the parts.
There was especially this part when Jewish where in favor of the law and Christians to mercy, it is logical that if all people sin, we must all have mercy so that it could go vice versa, or for example Jewish people once they know the rules and they pursue them, once they break them they accept the consequences.
What I found unfair for the play was how Christians use to keep Jews in the ghetto and then they would have to suffer consequences some random Christian created.
The play made me reflect on how society is nowadays and how often this case happens, people asking for loans thinking in the future they could pay, but at the end it doesn’t arrive, people don’t understand that when interest goes up the amount they own is invaluable and they could end up owing a debt for life, and in some cases the debt transfers to the next generation.
Langston Hughes’ has a very interesting poetry. In my opinion, it can sometimes get really hard for you to understand poetry or find it interesting, but with his type of poetry you´ll never get tired of it.
What I´ve noticed is that his poems share the knowledge of this important subjects like: racial discrimination, classism, social injustice. Every poem caught my attention and made me feel some dark emotions when it comes to injustice towards other people, this probably happened because of the narration.
My thoughts on the author are that the way he writes the poems, it´s a very rare one and hard to understand, also his verses don´t have that much music so it´s frustration is noticeable in them.
The ideas he presented where quite amazing because he did answer the questions people made to themselves such as ‘How can we change? How do we progress towards equality?’.
Langston Hughes poetry is worth to analize since they make you feel empathic because of what happened those years to African americans and how they got to where they are today, I think mos of the people that have read this poetry think all of their poems are so good could also call them masterpieces.
