AMND22 The play within the play

  1. 1. The play within the play
  2. 2. Why is there a comedy into a tragedy?  The comedy: reflects the human life from a happy and unconcerned point of view. It usually tries that people laugh until one cries. In the comedy the human and world imperfections are expressed, but also are expressed the posibilities of exceed the limitiations and feeblenes. That´s why the comedies always finish with a happy end.
  3. 3.  The tragedy: it shows terrible conflicts between the characteres that makes surprise, horror and pity in the people. This is because the solution of the tragical problem uses to be very painful and in a lot of cases is very bloody.
  4. 4. The tragedy front of the comedy  It is a tragedy because of the events in the play for the play for example, the two characters fall in love the very one carácter, but while the action is passing appear scene that you can laugh and have a good time in the comedy.  This is a contrast characteristic of the work and what makes this attractive and capture the attention of the recipient, either reader or wiewer of the work.
  5. 5. Characters belonging to the tragedy  BOTTOM: The overconfident weaver chosen to play Pyramus in the craftsmen’s play for Theseus’s marriage celebration. Bottom is full of advice and self-confidence but frequently makes silly mistakes and misuses language. His simultaneous nonchalance about the beautiful Titania’s sudden love for him and unawareness of the fact that Puck has transformed his head into that of an ass mark the pinnacle of his foolish arrogance.
  6. 6.  PUCK: Puck is Oberon’s jester, a mischievous fairy who delights in playing pranks on mortals. Though the work divides its action between several groups of characters, Puck is the closest thing the play has to a protagonist. His enchanting, mischievous spirit pervades the atmosphere, and his antics are responsible for many of the complications that propel the other main plots: he mistakes the young Athenians, applying the love potion to Lysander instead of Demetrius, thereby causing chaos within the group of young lovers; he also transforms Bottom’s head into that of an ass.
  7. 7.  Apart from Puck and Bottom there are more related with comedy characters but are not so important.
