She is a good manipulator and she knows what is her job. Lady Macbeth’s monologue ,from the scene I, is showing that Macbeth does not possesses enough cruelty, and that his consciense, at that point, would prevent him to go with the act of murdering Duncan. She says: What thou art promised: yet do I fear thy nature; It is too full o' the milk of human kindness She knows that Macbeth will not kill Duncnan unless she influences him. After the murder Macbeth is not thinking clearly, he is scared and he feels guilt. The effect that Duncan murder left on Macbeth is best seen right after the murder.
Shakespearean romance tragedy Romeo and Juliet is easily one of the most famous plays in the history of English literature. However, there still remains a mystery centuries later that has not yet been determined for certain: Were Romeo and Juliet’s deaths caused by fate or was it their own mistakes that led them to their deaths? This goal of this essay is to convince the readers that it was indeed fate that led Romeo to kill himself. And the play has many proofs of that, including coincidence, margin for error, and love. The amount of coincidence in the play proves that fate had control in Romeo and Juliet, as the characters were ignorant and couldn’t prevent these coincidences.
With such dual and conflicting natures this ultimately breaks Macbeth until the facade that he put on begins to crack and fall away, showing the face of the “true villain”. Although we are not introduced to Macbeth until Act I Scene 3, there is some information revealed about him beforehand. The otherworldly witches that kick off the production set a surreal tone to the entire play opening the universe to the supernatural, speaking in their double language, and saying that famous line “Fair is foul and foul is fair” sets the course for a major theme that appears throughout the play. But in relation to all of this they mention Macbeth and how
Diction is the key in this play to understanding both sides of Macbeth’s character and is therefore vital to the play, something Davenant must not have realized. In the “if it were done” soliloquy, Davenant excluded the word “but” which appeared in the Shakespeare version (line 6), where it is frequently repeated. By reducing its frequency, Davenant made Macbeth adapt a more confident demeanor. This new temper gives the audience the impression that Macbeth is not at war with himself because he does not weigh the pros and cons of murdering Malcolm in that passage of the Davenant adaptation. Incredibly, Davenant replaced “in double trust” (line 12) with “in doubt trust” (line 7).
Thus, by contrasting demonic imagery with Othello’s true nature, Shakespeare develops the theme of how impressions can be deceptive. This is further emphasized by Brabantio’s impressions of Othello. After Othello’s noble nature is first revealed to the audience, he politely addresses Brabantio, stating “Good signior, you shall more command with years/Than with your weapons” (I.ii.___). Brabantio responds insultingly, utilizing hellish imagery when addressing Othello, stating “Damn'd as thou art, thou hast enchanted her” (I.ii.___). In this scene, the demonic imagery Brabantio uses serves as a harsh contrast between his impression of Othello as “Damn’d” and Othello’s actual calm and noble nature.
Forgettable Heros In the Shakespeare 's play Hamlet Polonius is the tragic hero. Hamlet 's describes a person “who was in life a foolish prating knave.”(Shakespeare 3.4.338) In the eyes of the reader what Polonius is doing is foolish. However, his foolishness does not take away the virtues in Polonius actions. In fact, it compounds the tragedy in his story. Hamlet on the other hand is the main antagonist of the story and causes all of the calamities.
This being said, Shakespeare continues to challenge the readers views on imagination and reality, in this instance, love and magic. By watching the play, it opens our eyes to see exactly how love can affect us. “The lunatic, the lover, and the poet are of imagination all compact” (5.1.7-8). When Theseus states this he is outlining the fact that without imagination - and some lunacy - creativity and ambition can be stunted. Similarly to love and magic, without love we would not have any “magical” ambitions or creativity, in essence making the world a bland place to
The 1990 reenactment with Mel Gibson made Hamlet to be juvenile, cold, and apathetic. Shakespeare 's works were intended as plays, not as novels. When Hamlet is viewed as a script it doesn 't have the same effect as the movie does, but yet Hollywood 's attempt created, a senselessly adapted, ill-conceived, poorly acted mess of a film that 's guaranteed to frustrate anyone who loves the play and to put everybody else to sleep. Thus, Shakespeare 's character, Hamlet is brilliant well thought out character that was meant to be displayed as, insane, loving, and determined. One could argue that Hamlet was never in love with Ophelia, but many would argue against that as well.
With respect to the central message it shows she cannot trust the reliable reputation of Othello. As it is looked into more, the audience did not expect Othello to become evil. He is dynamic with the expectations of learning from his mistakes and becoming a better person. The audience did not see show evil within him until the story progressed more towards the end. Shakespeare is trying to drive into the audience once again the characters and people in life with respect to the central message may not be as they appear.
All the best people are.” The Mad Hatter is alluding to the fact that insanity is defined by a society as acting and thinking different than everyone else. Everyone is a little crazy in their own way, but that doesn’t make them mentally ill. Just as Alice was considered mad to those in Wonderland, Prince Hamlet was considered mad in Shakespeare’s famous play Hamlet. Although Hamlet is seen as crazy when he really isn’t, this is all part of his plan. Hamlet fakes his madness throughout the entire play as a ploy to receive his revenge and avenge his father. The main reasoning behind Hamlet’s crazy gimmick is to buy him time to confirm Claudius’s guilt and devise a revenge scheme.
