They are both ambitious and superstitious. In the play, it says, “Stay, you imperfect speakers, tell me more…. With such prophetic greeting, speak, I charge you. (1.3.71,79).” When the witches tell Macbeth that he is going to be a future king, he believes them, asking for more details and believing that one day he will become the ruler. When he tells Lady Macbeth, she goes on a rant about how much life is going to be amazing while Macbeth is king, and how she loves him because he is powerful and almighty.
In Arthur Miller’s play, The Crucible and in M. Night Shyamalan 's film, The Village both contained examples of jealousy transforming a character’s demeanor. In The Crucible, Abigail Williams had a loving demeanor towards John Proctor when they had an affair. However, after the discussion with John in Act One, it enlarged her jealousy towards his wife, Elizabeth. Abigail felt this way because she knew that his wife was in the way of their love (Miller 22-24). Over the course of the play, her desire for John had significantly increased and she jealously acted on the strategy to conspire against Elizabeth.
Consequently, a war breaks out and takes Macbeth and his wife. Macbeth is considered a tragic hero because of his excessive pride, reversal of fate when Fleance escapes, and his tragic flaw ambition. Macbeth is a tragic hero because of his excessive pride. This can be seen in Act III Scene IV when Macbeth says, “Ourself will mingle with society, And play the humble host.” This quote shows that he is prideful in himself now since he is King that he has to “mingle with society.” His thinking now is that “I am better than everyone so I should not have to host but me and my wife will host and mingle with you lower people.” Another time when this can be seen is in Act IV Scene I when the second apparition says, “Be bloody, bold,
Class and agency are arguably some of the most important factors in Shakespeare's plays. For example, because the capulets and the montagues are both noble houses, they are able to have enough interaction with each other that they have a strong hatred. Class and agency influence the characters’ education and actions in shakespeare's romeo and juliet because many of the events would not have happened without class and class affected much of who the person was during the renaissance. Romeo and Juliet would not have even met if they had different classes, let alone get married and die for eachother. For example, in act I scene II in Shakespeare’s romeo and Juliet, a Capulet servant asks Romeo “Perhaps you learned it without book ,but I pray, can you read?”.
The heart-warming tale of Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare has been known for centuries because of its strong ability to draw the audience’s attention. This wonderful tragedy begins with two lovers, Romeo Montague, and Juliet Capulet. However, there is an underlying family feud among their families which create several complications along their journey. As Romeo and Juliet’s love advances through the week, it strengthens their passion towards one another. The conflicting families suspend the lover from loving harmoniously.
Macduff now feels as if he has to kill Macbeth for revenge. He also feels like he has to prove that he is masculine to Malcolm. In the end Lady Macbeth. Macbeth, Malcolm, and Macduff all make comments about gender roles and how genders should act in society. It is very interesting to read this play because people have been questioning gender roles in society a ton recently, so it is fascinating to see what Shakespeare wrote 400 years ago.
Mrs. Linde is a minor character in the play “A Doll’s House”, by Henrik Ibsen, which reflects a down-to-earth woman and possesses a sensible worldview towards life. Nora, on the other hand, has a childish outlook on life. Mrs. Linde plays a very important role in this issue by polishing Nora’s attitude towards society. She seems obliged to be Nora’s teacher and guide on her journey to maturity. At the beginning of the play Nora receives a visit from Kristen Linde; her childhood friend.
Revenge his foul and most unnatural murder.”(1.5.25) Though there may be a plethora of violent scenes within Hamlet , one of the most important scenes in relation to the story would be in Act V. This act is one of the most passionate, especially for Prince Hamlet himself. Act V of Hamlet is the point in the play where Hamlet’s world comes crashing down. Hamlet finds out that the woman he loves, Ophelia is dead. “ Laertes. Lay her i’ th’ earth, And from her fair and unpolluted flesh May violets spring!
Throughout the play, Nora Helmer is a woman who was spoon-fed all her life by her father and husband as a “doll”. Nora says,” I’ve been your wife-doll here, just as at home I was Papa’s doll-child.” Ibsen uses the idea of “women” and “doll” to show the inauthentic identity that a doll can never express opinions or accomplish anything without the aid of others. Her decision at the end to leave this false life and discover herself as a women is a symbol of realization. At the end of the play, Nora is still finding out “who is right, the world or
Nora who risked jeopardizing her husband’s image had set the tone throughout the play as the constant change in personality set the tone of the play which I have really enjoyed due to the unpredictable plot twists and a chance to be engaged with The Victorian culture at that time period. There were also secondary characters such as Linde and Krogstad that further shaped up the plot of the story, especially Krogstad who was responsible for blackmailing Nora which set a very suspenseful and problematic tone. The title “dolls house” foreshadows my idea of the play as the word “doll” meant being objectified which relates to the main idea of the play. The book did a great job in foreshadowing and hinting future events as seen in the title. In one line, Torvald calls
