Who were the characters and what actors played them, if you saw a movie? Was the play you saw a comedy or a tragedy? Be sure to use the Shakespearean definitions! If you saw a tragedy, who was the tragic hero and what was his fatal flaw? If you saw a comedy, who ended up married at the end? What human trait or emotion was at the center of the action? Would you recommend this movie version of Shakespeare or the play you read to your classmates? Why or why not? Be sure to quote, cite, and reference from the text(s) using appropriate APA format.

Post 2: Compare the attitudes toward marriage and commitment in two of the following: "A Married State," "The Disappointment," "To His Coy Mistress," and Marriage A-la-Mode.

Your post must be at least 250 words. Post 2: A bildungsroman typically refers to a novel, but the concept can be applied to Mansfield's "The Garden Party."
