    one's guard = someone's defenses, ability to keep people out.

    So in this case, "one's better nature" means the speaker's true feelings. The character loves (or lusts) after this girl, despite the...

    Given everything I believe and have previously posted, I should agree with mal4mac - or Crystal - but I don't really.

    This is all sorts of incorrect.

    As ofr the OP: your assignment is very open-ended. You can use Shakespeare's bringing Ovid onto stage in Titus as a way to explore how Shakespeare's corruption of...

    Look at the end of act 3. Richard uses the archbishop to convince the commoners that he is pious, humble and worthy of being king. The clergy is not corrupt as it is weak.

    It doesn't sound like this person has to re-imagine the content of the novel, but change the form (and style) in which it's presented. In that way, I would choose character and point of view. Taking...

    I think the quintessential reading you should do is Huysman's A Rebours (Against Nature). It is the yellow book that Lord Henry gives Dorian at the start of Picture of Dorian Gray
