Regardless, Lady Macbeth brought up an interesting topic if evil can really be taken away from a person. For her that was impossible, as Lady Macbeth’s guilt consumed her, and led to her downfall. Both Queen Cersei and Macbeth proved that their lust for power is a great enough drug to let evil take control over them. Nevertheless, evil is a destructive force that will bring down everyone involved, including the perpetrator. Once evil has crossed the line, forgiveness is almost out of the question.
She is evil because she prays for spirits to give her the strength to turn emotionless. Lady Macbeth could be seen as truly evil for asking the spirits to fill her up with cruelty. However, by the end of the play, she is so consumed with guilt from her actions, that she kills herself. As Malcolm informed the crowd, “Fiendish queen, who took her own life,”(V,vii, 205). By the end of the play, Lady Macbeth felt guilty about her role in the murders.
Abigail begins to panic, and frantically decides to blame Tituba in order to get the attention off of herself. Abigail successfully draws the attention away from herself, while also giving the people a reason to fall into hysterics over the seemingly obvious evidence of witchcraft. Therefore, Abigail manipulates the townspeople into a witch frenzy time and time
She only can do this after she feels she has gotten rid of her female attributes. This can be attributed to the constraints of society at this time. Also, it can be attributed to the way that she feels about being not fearless enough to kill. She says, “Come, you spirits / That tend on mortal thoughts, unsex me here, / And fill me from the crown to the toe top-full / Of direst cruelty” (1.5.47-50). Lady Macbeth is calling to the spirits to assist her murderous ideations and to do that make her less of a women and more like man which will then fill her with deadly cruelty.
They seem to believe that women are inherently malevolent, and unredeemable. He believes women are evil because they are descended from Eve (184). In practically every sentence they denounce women and claim they are corrupt and nefarious. When they characterize women this way they allude to the idea that women are not human but in fact demons and devils. Consequently, if women are inherently evil and more likely to be witches then magistrates and inquisitors will find it easier to condemn and execute
He uses Voodoo for his own self gain and to strike fear into others in order to have followers. Marie’s aunt also uses Voodoo in a bad way because she too is innately evil. She killed her sister out of jealously and rage that Marie Levant, her niece had the gift rather than her daughter Marie-Claire. Her aunt knowingly let her daughter Marie-Claire be a pawn in Allez’s plan of zombification. She embraced the fact of reinforcing devil worshipping, zombification and making the world fear
Her anger toward the possibility of anyone telling the truth struck fear into them with her maniacal threat against them. This only made the hysteria last longer with their lies. Anger greatly impacted the witch trial hysteria in Salem. The truth wasn’t able to be told. Another key role to the hysteria was jealousy.
It shows how she is associated with evil and not recognized as a living being. Furthermore, the description of the monster as “that swamp-thing from hell” highlights Grendel’s mother’s evil nature and conveys her as barbaric to convey that she is an irrational enemy. This is vital because it displays Grendel’s mother as a villain and that she craves
In To Kill A Mockingbird , the fire that destroyed Miss Maudie’s house can symbolize the cleansing of racism. Miss Maudie hated the house and was happy to get rid of it. The house symbolizes racism and even though it burned down, the ashes will always be a reminder. Miss Maudie says, “ Only thing I worried about last things was all the danger and commotion it caused. This whole neighborhood could have gone up,” which represents the prejudice in Maycomb and how dangerous it could be if it
Some tried to stop while others continued to build up the hysteria. However, Abigail is the most responsible for the witch hysteria. Due to her selfishness and jealousy, she created this huge chaos and the people who did not want to get involved in this would get caught in the middle of it. Even after it was over, she did not show any remorse for it. Instead of admitting to the truth, she left the town because she knew how much trouble she would be in if she stayed.
They believed that the Devil had to have caused them to do such evil things, and they wanted to find the source of it. The authorities questioned the girls, and Abigail confessed that the servant Tituba sent her evil spirit upon them, and made them write in the Devil’s book. It only went downhill from there. Soon many were accused, and they would accuse others in order to save their own lives. It only started however,
Buy didn’t “keep it like it is” then she would burn like a pyre. This sounds like a crazed woman, who was pushed over the line just because one of her murals was being removed. She is a professional artist so she has access to exact paint thinner that could have started the fire. Robin Banks has motive and hatred towards the Glutco company and she stopped at nothing to get revenge on them. Ending In the end your honor we all want justice for the death of a young woman whose life ended too early.
The Possibility of Evil Miss Strangeworth got what she deserved. She hurt the people that she sent the letters to. So the people got revenge but cutting down her precious roses. Miss Strangeworth seems to be a sweet innocent old lady that loves her roses but at night she went incognito to write and deliver hate letters to the people in town telling them different things that are very offending and causes a lot of controversy in the town. Miss Strangeworth family has lived on pleasant street for generation.
In my own personal well thought of opinion, I believe that Abigail Williams is the one to blame for the witch trials due to multiple reasons. Firstly is that because of her self greed of trying to keep a well polished reputation and to not face the consequences, she did all that she could so that she would not get in trouble herself, which was acting or pretending to the best of her abilities, and claiming that the people she stated has either met the devil or created an agreement with him. Another would be attempting to eliminate the individuals she or the girls that follow her dislikes, which includes the upper class people, certain individuals that seems suspicious, etc. Lastly of course is the idea that she is just doing it to seize the
