The title character imagines the results of his brutal act against Duncan but kills him nonetheless. Afterward, he expresses fresh guilt by simultaneously divulging and withholding the open secret of his deed. After murdering Banquo, the feast honoring him demonstrates Macbeth’s further derangement, but his gradual insanity does not excuse the subsequent cold-blooded massacre of an entire family. Lady Macbeth tries to save herself by masking her husband’s instability, but ultimately, her sleepwalking spell places her own mental illness on display. This goes to show that it is not always easy for people in a position of power - or anyone, for that matter - to face their weaknesses head-on and admit that at some point in their lives, they need
Emily must have been confused and a tad bit sad to find out that the man she liked didn’t like her back. This pushed poor Emily over the edge of insanity and led her to commit the heinous act of murder. In the back of her mind, she probably had only one thought if she couldn't have him, then no one else ever
As I read the story, it was difficult to stay focused on the main plot because of the depth of detail the author provides. I read the story again, using all the details hoping to gain an insight into what the point of the story was. I did not come out with a clear meaning and insight into anything, leaving me disappointed. Kokernot’s extraneous details makes for a difficult read, but focusing on the main theme of love offers an entertaining read. The short story begins with the end of a wedding reception.
I would say that the name of each story is one thing that brings them together, the titels are very outstanding and something that gets them attention. but the storylines are both very different compared to each other. While Nipple Jesus´s plot is about a piece of artwork Lucky Bitch is just about a woman telling about her thoughts and feelings. But another thing thank can connect them in someway is that they both are quite inappropriate in a way, the Nipple Jesus painting was despised by many people for being inappropriate and the woman in Lucky Bitch was telling about her sexual interaction with men which would be inappropriate for an older lady in society. But other than that i do not see more similarity.
Our film, Psyche, is about a teenage girl, Deirdre, who is being physically and emotionally abused by a family friend, a man named Channing. Channing has been sexually assaulting Deirdre as well as causing her to have bruises on her body. Deirdre’s family does not help her in her situation, thus she feels that she has no way of escaping her trauma. This is made worse when she discovers that she is pregnant with Channing’s baby, and this drives her to believe suicide is her only option to be free of her pain. The editing theories that I am going to be using in my editing of the short film Psyche are as follows: From Ken Dancyger’s The Technique Of Film Video Editing: History, Theory and Practice: Vsevolod I. Pudovkin’s experiment where subjects were shown an image of an actor, and the each subject was shown a different image in the
However, the fact Dora tries to “control the surge of joy… (2)” when Calvin seems to get a heart attack indicates that she has never been comfortable being with him. Readers can presume her tired of caring about him too much, as the text says that he burdens her with chores. Secondly, Mary commits homicide in a fit of despair, but Dora intentionally does not inform Calvin of danger of being eaten. After killing Patrick, Mary is in shock until the noise brings her back to herself. She murders him on an impulse.
Roald Dahl, the author of this short story, wants the reader to realize how one-sided a relationship can be. While Mary was fully faithful and loving to Patrick; the feelings were not mutual. The feeling of betrayal she felt was beyond imaginable and she ended up going to violence for the answer. She was afraid, angry, shocked, sorrowful, and full of hatred. There may not have been an officially stated reason that she killed him, but in my mind I believe she killed him out of the act of fright and love.
This limits women to find the confidence to stand up for their beliefs. As Claudio falsely degrades Hero’s character, Hero accepts these accusations voluntarily and remains silent about the issue. Claudio stands up in public and proceeds to call Hero slanderous names such as, “thou pure impiety and impious purity” (IV.i.109). Hero again does not object, though she falls due to complete shock. Once her father hears these accusations, he commands to “let her die” as a result of the crimes she committed (IV.i.163).
If Macbeth had not have his own free will, they wouldn’t have all of these trouble. “Hell is murky!-Fie, my lord, fie! A soldier, and afeard? What need we fear who knows it, when none can call our power to account?-Yet who would have thought the old man to have had so much blood in him” (5.1.30-34). Murder of Macduff’s family and Banquo has weigh heavily on lady Macbeth mind and become mentally ill and no doctor can cure her.
In detail, maybe the reason for this fear is the social status or the position of the Grierson’s in the community. Also, there were a lot of red flags about her intention to kill Howard Barron but the whole town was clueless despite all these signs. In the end, Emily Grierson has been psychotic since the beginning of the story, how and when she lost her mind is unknown. The one question perhaps that all the readers ask about this story is, what is her motive to kill Howard Barron? I was shock to find out about Jack Scherting’s idea about Emily’s motive behind Howard Barron’s murder.
When she was under the influence, she could be extremely aggressive and violent and then black out; at least according to Tom. After she would sober up, he would tell her all the horrible things she said and did while she was drunk, like the time she attacked him with a golf club. She feels ashamed and blames herself for not being a good enough wife for Tom, just as Melinda feels guilty as though the rape was her fault, even if it really wasn’t. It is later revealed that in reality, it was actually Tom who had done all those atrocious things. He would lie to Rachel, blaming her for all the things he had done, just to make her feel guilty, weak, and worthless.
The women sensed this and therefore withheld information that would be vital in proving Mrs. Wright’s guilt in the murder of her husband. Had the men truly cared about what the women had found, perhaps the women would have shed light on their findings. The women are the rightful owners of the reader’s sympathy because they had often felt what Mrs. Wright had, the men had wrongfully acted in disrespect, and the women were written off as unhelpful before they ever had a chance to help. Because of the feelings of the women and the actions of the men, this case would grow cold and justice would not be
Estelle who is caught up in her own looks, and killed the baby of her lover. Inez is the character that Garcin feels he must prove his heroism too. Inez is not interested in men though, so this causes Garcin to be trapped in a revolving door of proving himself to a lesbian. Garcin is later given a chance to leave, in spite of his heroism, he decides to stay because of the psychological entrapment he faces with proving his heroism to Inez. Garcin’s choice to stay entrapped is a foolish, and nonviable solution.
Finally I chose to put Cradle and All by James Patterson as my hardest book because frankly I did not understand it. I am trying to read more difficult novels, but I think I chose one a little too far outside my comfort zone. The plot is understandable but the language the author uses rather difficult for me to read. To sum it up, these books are all good choices and I would recommend them, but sometimes I just have to deal with what I can
—No more o ' that, my lord, no more o ' that. You mar all with this starting” (V.i line 36-38). Even though, Lady Macbeth had nothing to do with the murders after Duncan, like Banquo and Macduff’s wife as well as his son, she still feels guilty because she created the monster, by manipulating Macbeth to kill Duncan. Another reason Lady Macbeth feels remorseful is because she had to do with some of the action in the murder, for example planning the death of Duncan and framing Duncan 's attendant. The guilt is causing Lady Macbeth to go insane because she is aware “All the perfumes of Arabia will not sweeten this little hand.
