In most instances, in Shakespeare’s drama, the audience can see most of the familiar people use prose. Prose does not incorporate either a meter or a rhythm. For instance, in the drama “The Merry Wives of Windsor,” Shakespeare uses prose when addressing characters of the middle-class. Besides, Blank verse explored by William Shakespeare elicits some critical conclusions. Shakespeare uses a highly developed blank verse as a vehicle of more intense and varied art-emotions. In his play, Shakespeare seems universal while using blank verse. Shakespeare uses many tones based on one man who cannot be manipulated into two or many more people. The audience can use the scansion process to analyze the poetry rhythm authored by Shakespeare with a lot of ease. In this context, a meter is a rhythm that encapsulates the number

Rhyme verse that is common in Shakespeare's writings is “June” and “moon,” “dove,” and “love.” Shakespeare uses blank verse with exciting possibilities within a dramatic sphere. Blank verse helps Shakespeare to mined rich veins by attracting readers. The interest in this kind of dialogue explored by Shakespeare is to differentiate the voices of the character effectively. Ideally, separating views is difficult for developing a speaking role. In essence, the monologue has more space for gradual character disclosure (Shakespeare, 2015). However, dialogue explored by Shakespeare tends to define themselves compactly and contrast themselves in the process of the verbal interchange. The ability to meet this requirement makes Shakespeare play more attractive. Shakespeare makes blank verse a unique tool for dialogue. In most of his plays, Shakespeare conveys a slight heightening to his poems without distracting the audience but holds their attention by artifice. As the audience's attention is upheld, Shakespeare tends to remind them about the cohesive, creative nature of the conversation that can sparks drama. In the play “Romeo and Juliet,” the audience can see how dramatic the love between Romeo and Juliet ends (Shakespeare, 1997). Whenever people talk, nobody can tell what the other person will reply to or say. For that reason, it affects a person's utterances. Shakespeare uses dialogue in a language unknown to the audiences to awaken their sense of strangeness in exchange for sounds that they perceive to be meaningful even without have an in-depth understanding. Blank verse helps Shakespeare to frame facts and spotlight the effects of a person's deeds subtly. For instance, in spite of Shakespeare's language being colloquial, the meter in the blank verse formalizes in a way to entice the audience from the dialogue they are overhearing. Such that, Shakespeare's audience is carried with the rhythms in the same way as speakers (Shakespeare, 2015). Since the speakers entertain a similar rhythm, viewers feel the

The speaker connection is on the same wavelength as the audience regardless of the exchange being mottled with misunderstanding. In Shakespeare's writings, the speech of characters displays how those characters reveal themselves.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
