The Effects of Mass Reproduction on Art
This essay explores the significance of society and how it may shape the individual. This is especially relevant in The Tempest as we see how different characters react to their placement in an unknown society. Similarly in Gawain, we see how a society with very different rules and traditions to our own affects the individual and his notions of himself. I also employ the thoughts of Literary theorists such as Saussure and also philosophers such as Freud and Marx.
