1565 Abstract William Shakespeare's Othello is an adaptation of Giovanni Battista Giraldi Cinthio's 1565 novella collection "Gli Hecatommithi," Decad. 9th. The Italian title means "The Captain."
Shakespeare may have known the story through Thomas Middleton's play The Changeling, first performed in 1622. It has been suggested that both Othello and The Changeling are adaptations of a single historical event. In Iago's words: "Othello, the Moor of Venice".
Middleton's play uses many details from Cinthio's story but changes them around a little bit to make Iago seem more sympathetic and the event itself less tragic. For example, Iago tells us that he will let Othello believe that his wife Desdemona has slept with every man in Venice so that when it turns out she has been faithful to him, it will devastate him.
This tactic works for Iago because we as readers understand that there is something not right about her death. We don't really know what it is yet, but we can guess based on Iago's actions that it has something to do with Othello marrying another woman after Desdemona dies.
Operatetta The operetta's El Capitan was the funny and cowardly Don Medigua, Peru's viceroy in the early seventeenth century. Some of the motifs appear throughout many acts, and the march's concluding tune is the same thrilling melody that concludes the operetta. However, Sousa added several new sections to the march to reflect its changing character as it progresses.
El Capitan was famous for being one of the first surfers in California. He used to ride out on huge waves looking for big rocks to climb so he could jump off them and scare away other pirates who were trying to steal their money. He would sometimes get so carried away that he would fall off his rock into the water below!
One day, while El Capitan was riding his wave, he saw a ship about to run aground. Without thinking, he jumped off his rock and saved the people on the ship from drowning. After the incident, El Capitan realized how dangerous surfing was and stopped doing it. From then on, he lived in solitude on his island until he died of a fever at age 29.
Here is the march starting at the beginning of the second act:
Act II Scene I
In 1892, Jose Rizal began work on his third novel, a sequel to El Filibusterismo, in Hong Kong. Rizal began the work in Tagalog and titled the first chapter "Makamisa," which translates as "After Mass." He continued to write in this vein for several months until he was forced to stop due to illness. When Rizal returned to Manila, he began work on another novel, Noli me tangere, which tells of a young man's struggle with social injustice in the Philippines during the early years of American colonization.
Rizal's two novels were very popular in their time and are still read today. Noli me tangere inspired many people who fought against Spanish colonialism and American occupation. It is considered the founding document of the Philippine nation-state. In 1990, it was chosen as one of the books that should be read by every Filipino citizen.
After publishing Noli me tangere, Rizal went back to school to study law. But the outbreak of the Philippine-American War (1899-1902) changed all that. On August 13, 1899, President William McKinley appointed Rizal minister plenipotentiary to the United States. Rizal left the Philippines on February 20, 1902, and took up his post in Washington, D.C.
Rizal's articles appeared in the reform daily La Solidaridad as well as in political circulars. Rizal's essays did not hold back in expressing his feelings. Rizal authored "Noli Me Tangere" in Spanish and had it published in Berlin, Germany in 1887. He also wrote two other essays in Filipino which were later published in Madrid, Spain in 1890. These three essays by Rizal are considered among the most important documents in the history of Philippine literature.
In conclusion, Rizal's Noli me tangere is regarded as the first modern novel in the Philippines. It has been cited as an influence on many Filipino writers including Carlos Poblete, Elisa Bonnevie, and Leonardo Perez Dasalla.
Jose Rizal died on December 30, 1896 at the age of 36 after being imprisoned for more than four years. The cause of his death was tuberculosis. Rizal is still celebrated today as a national hero of the Philippines. His remains are buried in Manila North Cemetery.
New History Historia Nova (Istoria Nea, "New History") by Zosimus is written in six volumes in Greek. He appears to utilize Dexippus between 238 and 270, Eunapius between 270 and 404, and Olympiodorus after 407. It is possible that more than one writer may have been used for the project.
Zosimus was a Roman historian from Naples who wrote in Latin. Little is known of his life except that he served as an officer under Caracalla and Geta. Zosimus wrote New History around 600. The work covers events during the reigns of five emperors: Caligula, Claudius, Nerva, Antonius Pius and Marcus Aurelius. >
Lopez and Fuentes, Gregorio Gregorio Lopez y Fuentes's Una Carta a Dios. Madrid: Aguilar, 1970.
This book was written by an anonymous priest from Spain around 1550. The letter itself is thought to be the work of Gregorio Lopez y Fuentes, but evidence such as style and content suggests it may have been written by another person. It is addressed to "God the Father" and begins with the phrase "Good Lord".
The letter discusses topics such as prayer, heaven, hell, and faith. It also contains poetry and stories that explain religious concepts in easy-to-understand language. This made the job of the translator difficult as some of the poems had no clear meaning when read alone but became apparent when read in context with other poems.
In conclusion, the writer asks God to protect Christians and says he hopes to meet him one day in heaven.
Emma Lazarus wrote "The New Colossus" in 1883 to help gather cash for the pedestal of the tall monument. She hoped that everyone would write a poem or song for the occasion.
Lazarus wrote several poems for the ceremony, but this is the only one that survives today. She wrote about her own feelings when she heard about the persecution of Jews under the Nazis. Even though this poem was not meant as an attack on all Germans, many of them hated it and considered it disrespectful to their country. One man even shot at the statue with a gun he had hidden behind his house! When police found him they arrested him for treason since the Nazi regime did not exist yet when this incident took place.
In addition to raising money, the intention of building the statue was to honor the memory of those who died in two world wars. At the time of its construction, America was still a young country so many people didn't know these deaths would be enough to fill up a statue.
After the death of Lazarus in 1931, her husband Henry presented the poem to the American public in a pamphlet called "A Paean". This pamphlet has been widely distributed among schools and universities throughout the United States.
