Comedy Chronicles in Shakespeare
William Shakespeare produced many comedy plays between 1590 - 1613. Eighteen plays are generally included among Shakespeare's comedies. One of the most popular comedy plays by Shakespeare that I read was "The Comedy of Errors". The Comedy of Errors, is one of William Shakespeare's earliest plays. It is his shortest and one of his most farcical comedies, with a major part of the humor coming from slapstick and mistaken identity, in addition to puns and word play. For others it was "Midsummer Night's Dream".
Tragedy Times in Shakespeare
William Shakespeare produced many tragedy plays between 1588 - 1623. Twelve plays are generally included among Shakespeare's tragedies. One of the saddest tragedies in Shakespeare's history is "Hamlet". Hamlet, is a tragedy by William Shakespeare. Set in the Kingdom of Denmark, the play dramatizes the revenge Prince Hamlet exacts on his uncle Claudius for murdering King Hamlet, Claudius's brother and Prince Hamlet's father, and then succeeding to the throne and taking as his wife Gertrude, the old king's widow and Prince Hamlet's mother. The play vividly portrays both true and feigned madness—from overwhelming grief to seething rage—and explores themes of treachery, revenge, incest, and moral corruption.
Comedy and Tragedy in the 21st Century
In the 21st Century, we experience many films of both tragic and comical. One of which is "The Shawshank Redemption". This movie is about two imprisoned men bond over a number of years, finding solace and eventual redemption through acts of common decency.
