What are some critical questions to ask oneself when creating a piece of writing in order to keep yourself on track?
Some things to keep in mind as you write are: am I answering the question I've been asked to answer? What is my main idea or thesis--what question am I attempting to answer? Who is my audience, and am I writing in a way that will satisfactorily prove my answer to my question for them? Is my piece of writing organized in a logical way that flows from one idea to another? Have I checked my work to ensure that I have adhered to accepted grammar structures? Have I cited my sources in a way that makes them easy to find again should the reader choose to follow up with their own research?
Please think about a common theme that can be found in several of Shakespeare's plays and provide three examples of instances where these themes can be found.
The root of all of Shakespeare's plays and therefore his most common theme is the theme of power. Power manifests in many forms throughout his body of work. In several plays, power is demonstrated in a father's control of his daughter, as in The Taming of the Shrew, or The Tempest. In others, power manifests as the systemic oppression of one class of people by another, such as the race-driven prejudice found in Othello. And in still others, power takes the form of the supernatural, as seen in the ghost of Hamlet's father who acts as the catalyst for the play's action when he informs Hamlet of his vile murder, or found in the dark mysticism of the weird sisters in Macbeth that eventually leads to the downfall of the titular character.
