God is not pleased about Everyman not being prepared for when Death comes upon them. When one goes through life sinning, they must also remember their need for God. c. The important message in the morality play is that God does not want his people to through life and not acknowledge him until the time comes for Death. Everyman Introduction The morality play “Everyman” is a medieval, 15th century drama that was written to portray Death as it approaches Everyman once his time comes to face God on judgment day.

Ultimately, Macbeth’s actions answer the essential questions of Shakespearean tragedies, namely, “What is a man? Of what is he capable? What are his moral…limits?” (Ramsey 285). Illustrating his answer through Macbeth’s downfall, Shakespeare shows exactly what man can become without morals; specifically, Shakespeare asserts that the loss of morality causes damage that cannot be undone.
For Montresor to keep his family’s motto, he has to get payback from anyone who does him wrong, including from his former friend Fortunato.

In The Tragedy of Hamlet, Claudius shows this remorse when he claims, “Pray can I not. / Though inclination be as sharp as will, / My stronger guilt defeats my strong intent, / And, like a man to double business bound, / I stand in pause where I shall first begin, / And both neglect.” (III.iii.2375-2380).
In the play Hamlet, we find that Hamlet meets with his father’s ghost, and about his father murder by the hands of blood related brother, Hamlet takes a decision, to revenge and restore the glory back
It is critical that Claudius scolds Hamlet as he addresses him without precedent for the play. Claudius is plainly the foe, and he starts his hour upon the phase in an unmitigatedly antagonistic part. Were Claudius' air insufficient to tell the gathering of people that the two are opponents, Hamlet underscores the uneasiness of their relationship by affirming his appall for the man with his own opening articulation. The watchwords that epitomize the basic reason for this scene incorporate "show," "appear," and "play." Cornelius and Voltemand say they will "demonstrate our obligation.
Claudius tries and fails to pray for forgiveness, but Hamlet mistakes this for repentance. Because of this, he decides to "trip him that his heels ay kick at heaven" and delays in killing him. Unfortunately for him, his uncle is not truly remorseful for his sins, saying "My words fly up, my thoughts remain below. Words without thoughts never to heaven go". The king is deceptive without even trying, it is second nature to him.
Villa, recollecting his guarantee not to hurt his mom, advises her of Claudius' arrangement and how he will look for retribution. This scene represents how Hamlet's activities are managed not by his own particular decisions, but rather by the activities of alternate characters. One very nearly appears to feel that in spite of the fact that Hamlet is acting in a malevolent way, he remains a consistent casualty of
In William Shakespeare’s King Lear, Edgar concludes the play by lamenting over the tragic deaths of those the around him and the future of the kingdom. As Kent, Albany, and Edgar are the only characters remaining in the end, Edgar stresses upon the lives lost to acts of deceit and the importance of letting honesty reign through one’s actions instead. Bound to never again let lies tear a family apart, Edgar believes that words should come from the heart and never should one speak with evil intentions. Through a didactic declaration of ethical principles, Shakespeare summarizes the moral of the play that honesty and truth should preside over one’s actions rather than lies and deceit displayed through an antithesis of virtuous actions and with
If he were truly a loyal patron, this thought would not last as long as it did in Macbeth’s head, but his ambition transformed him. As Macbeth’s downfall advances he loses his integrity since his vision is clouded by his ambition and maintaining his rule. Macbeth’s mania gets to a point where, “[the Witches] no longer need to go and meet him; he seeks them out. He has committed himself to his course of evil… We have no hope that he will reject their advice; but… they make careful preparations to deceive him into [accepting it]”
I can apply this verse to my life by repenting when I sin, because ultimately I am wicked and need to ask for forgiveness for the Lord and it will be granted to me. Although, I do disagree with Simon and I think that one should pray to the Lord for my their own forgiveness and no one else needs to do it for them. In verse twenty two, the phrase “if possible, the intention of your heart may be forgiven you” stood out to me. This line is not saying that one repents are they are automatically forgiven, it says if possible meaning, if it pleases the
He takes Haimon’s well-spoken remark, and turns it into an insult against his son’s age. This is something that a character lacking self-confidence would argue as soon as their motives are challenged. Confrontation should not insight insult, it should insight intelligent and respectful conversation. It might be slightly more normal to argue with your family over serious issues, but Kreon upholds his undesirable traits even when speaking to the world’s most renowned and respected seer of the future, Tiresias. Tiresias, old and blind, has a guide lead him to Thebes to tell Kreon that his actions have upset the gods, and that he must free Antigone and allow her to give Polyneices a proper burial (998-1032).
During the revenge of his father’s death, Hamlet’s pride, recklessness and indecisiveness cost him the lives of his loved ones. These three flaws in Hamlet’s personality became huge obstacles and disasters. Out of pride, he humiliated and played tricks with his uncle for he deemed that he could outsmart his enemy and make his uncle confess his crimes. However, I think Hamlet made a huge mistake by doing so for a man should always respect his enemy. What Hamlet should do is to gather all his will and strike a fatal blow to his uncle and end his revenge quick and directly.
Revenge is a very strong and powerful theme found in stories across all ages and all cultures. During the course of this class two books have also held this theme, Shakespeare's Hamlet and Shelley's Frankenstein. Revenge seems to be such a large theme for both Hamlet and Frankenstein's monster because they both feel utterly betrayed by the people closest to them. In Hamlet, King Hamlet is murdered by his brother, his ghost reveals this to Prince Hamlet.
Is Hamlet’s revenge justified? The most important question would be: is revenge ever justified? Some people think that revenge is the one moral thing that they should do in that moment, and other people think that it is not a moral thing at all. Maybe deep into this question lies another reason that is more than revenge. Hamlet is the son of the King of Denmark; he was supposed to rule after his father.
