In the beginning Macbeth was an honest and good person but after coming to know about his fate, he start killing people to get what he want and avoid what he don’t want to happen. In Act 1, Macbeth didn’t know about the prophecies and only did his job naturally so it didn’t lead to any disaster. When he receive the news he was happy to be thane of “glamis, and thane of cawdor!” (1.3.134) but he believe “the greatest is behind” (1.2.135) if the prophecies from the witches are true. Macbeth win the war and save the kingdom twice in a day so it only right he get promoted. This connected to the thesis because here Macbeth didn’t know about his fate before the war.

Zhu Yongpeng (Roger) Mrs. Todoric ENG 4U 20 March 2018 How Marginalization and Racism Destroy Othello It is very hard for someone’s identity to not falter when they face bias and discrimination. Staying true to one’s roots requires a large amount of willpower which Othello has unfortunately lacked. In Othello by William Shakespeare, Othello’s Moor background and the subsequent racism and marginalization he receives, results in his eventual downfall.

Next, he was unhappy with where his fate led him once more, thus he tries to tamper with fate and lastly, Macbeth stupidly goes to the witches’ cave to seek guidance to protect his reign despite it being dangerous and unreliable. Power made him greedy, too rash with decision making, and
The main reason he came to New York is because he longed for its excitement, but eventually realized that it was not worth sacrificing his principles. “Even when the East excited me most, even when I was most keenly aware of its superiority to the bored, sprawling swollen towns beyond the Ohio, with their interminable inquisitions which spared only the children and the very old---even then it always for me had a quality of distortion” (176) Eventually, Nick found that East Egg had a surreal quality to it, and found it “distorted” due to this. He found the society of the rich too superficial and conceited, almost completely materialistic and twisted in a way. East Egg for Nick, distorted reality where the wealthy lived in a bubble where life was untangled to an indulgence of inclinations. Similarly, Nick is always swinging back and forth in his relationship with Jordan.
For now everybody was safe together. After that terrible earthquake, the demon soldiers made the Tang people rebuild their town in a different place. But, the Tang people didn’t like that so they convinced the demons to let them rebuild in their original spot. The Whitlaws had to move to Oakland to get money since they have nothing. Windrider and Moonshadow wanted to move to Oakland so Windrider could live out his dream, to fly.
Although Macbeth has done some really bad deeds, he cannot be called a bad person out and out who goes on to achieve his ambitions without any consideration. He’s also a victim of the realization that there is no meaning as such in this world. This instability snatches his power to think and he gives in to his wife’s provoking speeches without providing any counter arguments to her. If he had any of his individuality left, he certainly must have had given some thought to her speeches but the lack of it shows his confusion. As soon as he joins the opposites foul and fair, he’s encountered by the weird (which is undefined because in the world of Macbeth nothing is normal).
Pride is formed through personal constant experience of success and accomplishments, but to much pride leads to poor decision making which if not controlled ultimately leads to your demise. In the play “Oedipus the King” Sophocles gives Oedipus a dreadful dynasty predicted by the oracle. Despite Laius’s preparation to kill his son, Oedipus, before his fate was sealed, he survived and later becomes the king of the same city his father ruled over. Over his ruling of the city of Thebes Oedipus gets multiple chances to stop searching for the ugly truth because a man of his stature can not quit the search for the truth. Therefore, Oedipus’ hamartia of pride guides him on the path to meet his everlasting fate.
Jason’s grudge and hate not only prevents him from living in the present but, also causes him to believe that the world is out to get him. He uses epithets such as “bitch” to describe women and “nigger” to describe african americans. This shows the lack of respect that Jason has for other people and how self centered he is. In addition to this Jason only cares about money, causing him to steal from the checks that Caddy send to Quentin. He does this because he believes “that money can displace grief, frustration, and deprivation”(Matthews).
The people in this fictional society believe that they have found utopia, but when our society views it, we see a dystopia, although when we look closer at our society we not only see the differences but the similarities. In their utopia books are burned because they always hurt someone’s feelings, “...Don’t step on the toes of the dog-lovers, cat-lovers, doctors, lawyers, merchants, chiefs, Mormons, Baptists, Unitarians, second-generation
Mali has a strange relationship with religion and magic, and it is safe to categorize the two together. Sogolon and Soumaoro, the great sorcerers are in touch with these spirits, and yet Sundiata dominates because he bows before them. Sundiata is an arrogant warrior, but when he is unable to harm Soumaoro, he does not act with more aggression but instead doubts his strength. In acting like this, he opens himself to the religious/magical forces in nature, and they aid him, allowing him to defeat the sorcerer king. Magic, religion, and nature form a realm higher than the human realm.
Nausicaa wants her maids to help Odysseus bathe, but Odysseus declines the offer because he does not want the maids to have to see him naked.

Instead, she tells him to go back to town by himself, and wait for the girls at her father’s estate.
Dr. Reiner would instead think to do the unimaginable, use a false memory charm in place of electroconvulsive therapy. He considered this course of action seriously. It would break several laws the Ministry of Magic passed in regards to using magic on muggles, but it was also possible that his patient might not be muggle. How peculiar it would be if Arabella Black of Yorkshire Dales was actually a Pure-blooded witch. (While she certainly resembled the family, he would hope she was otherwise unrelated.)
