The writer of this paper presents a detailed discussion about the way different manipulators are treated in the works of William Shakespeare depending on the style of the work. The writer explored several characters in tragedies and comedies written by Shakespeare -including "All's Well That Ends Well" and "Troilus" - and takes the reader on a journey of discovery regarding the acceptance or rejection of manipulators in the works.

From the Paper:

"If one studies the works of Shakespeare one will see that there is a connection between manipulation and comedies. The connection is one that is subtle yet obvious once discovered. A manipulation is really nothing more than getting someone to do what one wants done, and in a life setting this can be comedic. The connection between manipulation and comedy is similar in that they are really both manipulations. Comedies are written in such a way that the audience is manipulated into accepting manipulation as funny and acceptable. This in and of itself is a form of manipulation and the audience is the target for the author. It is such a subtle connection that the audience often does not recognize it until they stop and realize that they accepted events and actions in the comedy that they would have found repulsive of worthy of revenge in any other setting."
