Hamlet says “That (he) the son of (his) dear father murdered,/ Promoted to (his) revenge by heaven and hell...” / . Hamlet says that he wants to send Claudius to hell because he did not give his father a chance for confession which will send his father to hell. That’s why hamlet is showing his revenge because he want Claudius, the same fate as his father. Hamlet says, “...and so he goes to heaven and so am i revenged that would be scanned: A villain kills my father, and for that, I his sole son, do this same villain send Heaven…/ And am i then / revenged / To take him in the purging of his soul,/When he is fit and seasoned for his passage?”/.Hamlet also admits to Ophelia that he is wants revenge by saying in line 135 of Act 3.1.“I am very proud, revengeful, ambitious, with more offenses at my beck than I have thought to put them in imagination to give them shape, or time to act them in… / So it is proved that Hamlet’s primary motivation is to kill the destroyer of his father’s life, that being his Uncle
In the end, all abandon Faustus, the scholars and the Good Angel leaving him to face the torturing devils alone. His mutilated body is later found, and the Chorus enters to explain the tragic lessons to be learned from Doctor Faustus 's regretted choices.” 7 Conclusion Overall, Christopher Marlowe was a great Elizabethan playwright; he wrote the moral play doctor Faustus, he was famous for his proposed “atheism” which turned out to be likely false or not as we know “atheism” now and used it to cover up the fact that he was a spy, but authorities possibly killed him for being accused of “atheism” which opened up many mysterious things about his life. In my opinion Marlowe was a catholic sympathizer and used his reputation as an atheist to hide his secret life as a spy and draw more
When Satan returns eight days later, he faces the penultimate challenge, corrupting man, but more significantly, he faces himself, “the Evil One abstracted stood / From his own evil, and for the time remained / Stupidly good, of enmity disarmed, / Of guile, of hate, of envy, of revenge” (9.463-466). For a moment, Satan is faced with a spark of goodness, but true to himself and his mission, evil prevails. Satan goes on to complete his quest, corrupting humanity, exacting his revenge on God, and returns to hell a hero. Upon his return, Sin greets Satan, “thy virtue hath one / What thy hands builded not, thy wisdom gained / With odds what war hath lost, and fully avenged / Our foil in Heav’n” (10.372-375). Satan fulfilled his destiny, but, alas, as any tragic hero, Satan was doomed to fail, “he stood, expecting / Their universal shout and high applause / To fill his ear, when contrary he hears / … A dismal universal hiss, the sound / Of public scorn” (10.504-509).
Look at her God-given innocence; her soul is so tender; we must protect her, Tituba; the Devil is out and preying on her like a beast upon the mesh of the pure lamb. God will bless you for your help¨. Before this moment, Hale is talking to some ¨children¨ and is very rash about everything that is spoken by them and believed word for word. Hale being naive and very passive, he did not know how to control the situation at hand. Being naive and gullible trapped Hale from being able to rationalize and how later in the play, the hysteria of witches within the town would later convict innocent people to their death.
The Raven symbolizes the devil, whom is there to make him pay for what he did, and make him hurt like he made Lenore hurt. The Raven didn’t come to the Speaker’s chamber door to answer his questions and make him feel at ease. No, he came to make sure he descends into hell, and that his soul will never be lifted up. The Raven wants to make the Speaker feel even more remorse than he already does, and drive home the point that because of his sin, Lenore is gone forever. This makes sense, because if the Speaker hadn’t killed Lenore, then why would the Raven not answer the Speaker’s questions?
He commits himself to the long journey that it will take to travel back to Heaven and hopefully gain revenge against God, who outcast him down to the depths of Hell. Many critics downplay the simple fact that Satan decided to set out on this epic journey, and discussions often arise about “when readers are so conscious of Satan’s absurdities that they forget his cunning and his power” (Steadman 253). Readers are so caught up in their past teaching and beliefs that Satan is inherently evil that they forget all of the basic traits of an epic hero that he legitimately
Thou shalt not live, That I may tell pale-hearted fear it lies, And sleep in spite of thunder." He is not afraid of Macduff, he is killing him to ease his mind. Notice how differently he talks about Banquo in act three, "So is he mine; and in such bloody distance That every minute of his being thrusts Against my near’st of life. And though I could With barefaced power sweep him from my sight And bid my will avouch it, yet I must not, For certain friends that are both his and mine, Whose loves I may not drop, but wail his fall Who I myself struck down. And thence it is, That I to your assistance do make love, Masking the business from the common eye For sundry weighty reasons."
Such is the attraction of power; he knows that those who sign over their souls will do so regardless of their consequences. When the Old Man persuades Faustus to repent, Mephistophilis threatens Faustus by saying, “Thou traitor, Faustus. I [Mephistophilis] arrest thy [Faustus] soul For disobedience to my [Mephistophilis] sovereign lord [Lucifer]; Revolt, or I’ll inpiecemeal tear thy [Faustus] flesh” (Marlowe 51). Maurice A. Hunt suggests that when the “Old Man tried... to save his [Faustus’s] soul,” Mephistophilis threatened Faustus, which leads to Faustus “collapsed in fear of the devil’s
The darkest character in The Scarlet Letter is Chillingworth. At the start of the book, Chillingworth knows who his wife had an affair with and tortures him through the book, Chillingworth exclaims “He will be mine!” (4). Another dark thing, how Chillingworth is described as “he would have had no need to ask how Satan comports himself, when a precious human soul is lost to Heaven” (10). Reading when a precious soul is lost to heaven, it gives chills. How could one man be so dark he goes and wants the devil instead of God.
A damned saint, an honourable villain! … “Blistered by thy tongue for such a wish! O what a beast was I to chide at him!” 3.2.77-79 3.2.90-95 This quote is said by Juliet after the Nurse tells her that Romeo killed Tybalt. Shakespeare uses this oxymoron to show that Juliet is immature and can’t make up her mind about whether or not she loves Romeo. She says “damned saint” which is an oxymoron because saints are usually heavenly, but damned refers to hell and dark things.
