When Macduff offers him a surrender, Macbeth denies and fights anyway with no hope left. This scene is incredibly depressing because it shows how far Macbeth has come from this knight sworn to protect his king to this power hungry monster willing to kill all in his way and finally to himself now, a sad, sad man with no one left because he either killed them or they killed themselves and now he is ready to accept the his reign is over, it is time to stop, but he will not die without one last battle.

Although these men are not fighting for a great reason, when “honor’s at the stake” (4.4.59), they fight to their “imminent death” (4.4.63). This shows how Hamlet should act since his justification for seeking revenge is far greater than this army’s reasons for going to battle. Since these soldiers “go to their graves like beds” (4.4.65), Hamlet acknowledges that he must take action and have his “thoughts be bloody or be nothing worth” (4.4.69). In this soliloquy, Hamlet realizes that it is necessary to take action now. For too long, he has worried about the aftermath of murdering his uncle, but now he has been motivated by Fortinbras’ army willing to die for a worthless cause.

A childhood fantasy of many children of the world is to find their supposed soul mate. The person who will love them through thick and thin, the one who will be there at their side when they need it most. Often times in literature we see examples of soul mates, one such example is the bond between Marius and Epinine, not Cosette. Despite Cossette being portrayed as Marius’s perfect match, Epinine cared about Marius, knew Marius better than Cossette ever did, and had better life skills than Cossette. As any man or woman will know, a perfect match for someone is not based on beauty, but rather it is based on how much they care for you.
After Laurana ask Rosello about the man Sciascia writes, “Abruptly [Rosello] stiffened, and his eyes grew hard and cold. ‘Why do you ask?’… [Rosello] went off, a bit flushed in the face and without shaking hands.” Sciascia (96-97). This is the first clue for audience and Laurana that he might be heading to the afterlife. The lawyer is noted to avoid Laurana every chance he gets. For the audience this is dramatic irony as the audience know that Rosello is going to kill Laurana, but Laurana thinks he has stayed out of sight enough and will be fine.
