- The First World War (WWI) was a global war started in Europe from 1914 until 1918 that killed over 9 million soldiers as according to Van Tol, Ottery & Keith (2012).

Semiotics: The Science of Signs and Symbols

- Twentieth century Swiss linguist and semiotician Ferdinand de Saussure designates semiotics as the systematic science of signs. Though the idea was both praised and ridiculed, the linguist successfully proved that signs do affect the way we view the world we live in. Where language was once the way we understood society, signs have taken their place.

The Duchess of Malfi: A Character Study

- Webster based his plot on a true story set in Italy, a story that has as central themes inequality, injustice, and corruption. In my opinion one of the best techniques that Webster used to transmit these themes was to make the characters appear to be something that they are not. Furthermore, all the important characters of the play have both good and bad sides, and some of them (Cardinal) are “bad” but appear to be “good”. This contrast between good and bad and the changes of personality, help the author to build a play full of tragedy and therefore this maintains the reader’s attention focused on the play and anxious to see what is going to happen next....   [tags: The Duchess of Malfi]
