In terms of ego and prophecy, the character of Macbeth and 50 Cent are very similar. Ego and prophecy can be understood as two different categories, but it is because of their egos that they believe so strongly their prophecies. Macbeth, who was previously the thane of Glamis, had hubris, which was caused by the people around him. For example, in the beginning of “Macbeth”, the sergeant relays to King Duncan, “For brave Macbeth--well he deserves that name--Disdaining fortune, with his brandish 'd steel, which smoked with bloody execution, like valour 's minion…” to express Macbeth’s performance in the battle against Macdonwald. The sergeant talked about Macbeth in a very bloviated manner.
This drama/thriller was very unique, “the way it shuffles from tone to tone – animated music video one second, unforgettably dark pastiche of a cheesy TV sitcom the next”. (Parker) It was probably the most controversial film of the 1990’s and one of the most underrated as well. This film has actually received more credit as time has passed.

Chopin herself experienced a substantial history of alcohol use and abuse in her family, and she often wrote about this subject in her fiction. Her son was a heavy alcohol abuser whose “marriage ended in divorce because of his drinking” (Toth, Unveiling, 240). Family alcohol abuse also notably inspired Chopin’s other novel, At Fault (self-published in 1890), in which a heroine, Fanny, is described by Lewis Leary as being “hopelessly in the power of drink” (71). Emily Toth has written of the public’s and of critics’ marked failure to understand At Fault’s primary theme. Toth argues that Chopin’s first novel shows a woman drinking as a means of dealing with male oppression in a rigidly patriarchal society (“Kate Chopin on Divine Love” 118-20).
The Raven: Sound Devices Edgar Allan Poe has been called literature's “most brilliant star,” but he is also very known for an unstable life.

This is a very pointless part of the religion that seems to be based on nothing at all. Bokononism says “it is impossible to be sole-to-sole with another person without loving the person, provided the feet of both persons are clean and nicely tended,” (Vonnegut 158). The author is being sarcastic because a Boko-maru comes from a religion that is essentially a pack of lies, but also has a feature that is strangely
