Hey, /lit/. Have to write an essay on a feminist play A Dolls House. Supposed to pick a scene, then ask the audience a question about one of the themes in the scene. However i can't ask out-right and have to imply the question by changing something about the production like acting style, atmosphere, clothing, etc. Any ideas?

Racine / Corneille Who's the best? And why is it Corneille? " Le vieil Horace: Que n’a-t-on vu périr en lui le nom d’Horace ! Valère: Seul vous le maltraitez après ce qu’il a fait. Le vieil Horace: C’est à moi seul aussi de punir son forfait. Valère: Quel forfait trouvez-vous en sa bonne conduite ? Le vieil Horace: Quel éclat de vertu trouvez-vous en sa fuite ? Valère: La fuite est glorieuse en cette occasion. Le vieil Horace: Vous redoublez ma honte et ma confusion. Certes, l’exemple est rare et digne de mémoire, De trouver dans la fuite un chemin à la gloire. Valère: Quelle confusion, et quelle honte à vous D’avoir produit un fils qui nous conserve tous, Qui fait triompher Rome, et lui gagne un empire ? À quels plus grands honneurs faut-il qu’un père aspire ? Le vieil Horace: Quels honneurs, quel triomphe, et quel empire enfin, Lorsqu’Albe sous ses lois range notre destin ? Valère: Que parlez-vous ici d’Albe et de sa victoire ? Ignorez-vous encor la moitié de l’histoire ? Le vieil Horace: Je sais que par sa fuite il a trahi l’état. Valère: Oui, s’il eût en fuyant terminé le combat ; Mais on a bientôt vu qu’il ne fuyait qu’en homme Qui savait ménager l’avantage de Rome. Le vieil Horace Quoi, Rome donc triomphe ! Valère Apprenez, apprenez La valeur de ce fils qu’à tort vous condamnez. Resté seul contre trois, mais en cette aventure Tous trois étant blessés, et lui seul sans blessure, Trop faible pour eux tous, trop fort pour chacun d’eux, Il sait bien se tirer d’un pas si dangereux ; Il fuit pour mieux combattre, et cette prompte ruse Divise adroitement trois frères qu’elle abuse. Chacun le suit d’un pas ou plus ou moins pressé, Selon qu’il se rencontre ou plus ou moins blessé ; Leur ardeur est égale à poursuivre sa fuite ; Mais leurs coups inégaux séparent leur poursuite. Horace, les voyant l’un de l’autre écartés, Se retourne, et déjà les croit demi-domptés : Il attend le premier, et c’était votre gendre. L’autre, tout indigné qu’il ait osé l’attendre, En vain en l’attaquant fait paraître un grand cœur ; Le sang qu’il a perdu ralentit sa vigueur. Albe à son tour commence à craindre un sort contraire ; Elle crie au second qu’il secoure son frère : Il se hâte et s’épuise en efforts superflus ; Il trouve en les joignant que son frère n’est plus." Horace_P.Corneille Act IV, Scene 2

I was wondering if anybody can recommend to me an online resource for English grammar students. I am beginning to tutor international students in English grammar, but a solid online resource would make my life a lot easier, whether it's a website or a pdf. I'd prefer not to ask my students to purchase any books. Thanks for your help if you have a resource that you would recommend.

So what did you think of this book? Personally, I was a bit underwhelmed. I thought that the narrative and "perfectness" of Knecht was supposed to satirize the usual biographical form, but it was without humor and a bit bland. The themes explored in the book had also been already explored better in Hesse's other books. Is there something I possibly missed?

What poetry have you been reading? >And she forgot the stars, the moon, and sun, And she forgot the blue above the trees, And she forgot the dells where waters run, And she forgot the chilly autumn breeze; 420 She had no knowledge when the day was done, And the new morn she saw not: but in peace Hung over her sweet Basil evermore, And moisten’d it with tears unto the core.
