Example text

It does not of course bear comparison. The scene in King Lear owes a good deal of its effect to its brevity and concentration; here the all too obvious superficial similarities are a drag on the attention so that the restoration of Meleander through material honours, however impressive the pageantry of their presentation may be, comes as something of an anti-climax. When the reunion with Eroclea actually occurs the magic is gone. In fact the scene is overweighted with psychological matter; Meleander is to find his soul's satisfaction in Eroclea but he must also recover his faith in princes.

Giovanni's words are coloured both by Annabella's obsession with time and his own clear vision of precisely where he and his sister stand and why they have failed. Their true natures had been freed by their love which seemed to survive even Annabella's marriage. Together in the simplicity of their true union they could have scored a triumph over the sophisticated world which the passage of time could not alter - if she had been 'One thought more steady than an ebbing sea'. a touch of irony. Unimpeded nature has been his guide but he has reckoned without Annabella's character.

1) in which we see the 40 john Ford and the Caroline Theatre lovers together and happy, may recall in its innocent dalliance the love of Romeo and Juliet, but the impact of the scene is rather ideological than passionate. The early scenes of the play are designed to show Giovanni less as a rebel than as a man in desperate quest of his own proper way in life. The fate motive, recurrent in Ford's tragedies, carries a new significance here as the mainspring of the action. 5 To Giovanni fate is that which his nature dictates for his self-fulfilment 'tis not I know my lust But 'tis my fate that leads me on.
