What would be good three main points for my Shakespeare essay thesis?
I need help developing three main points for three paragraphs for my essay with the ideas I have.
Here is my thesis:
Shakespeare demonstrates a pessimistic view towards marriage’s capacity to provide contentment if it does not follow society’s traditional rules.
Here are my thoughts.
Shakespeare sees marriage as social union/duty.
Shakespeare sees passionate love as a disease
Will look at Othello and A Midsummer Night’s Dream to demonstrate this idea.
Desdemona disobeys duty to her father.
Ends in tragedy.
A Midsummer Night’s Dream:
Proper marriage according to Shakespeare:
Theseus and Hippolyta: wins her in war, love follows. follows traditional values.
Hermia and Lysander: social rebellion.
They marry at the end, but throughout the play their romantic love is ridiculed, made to look foolish and chaotic.
The ending of the play doesn’t demonstrate pure happiness in the marriages.
Thanks in advance for the help.
