When the three witches met Hecate it appears that the three witches wanted to harm Macbeth. “ ]Hecate[ Have I not reason, beldams as you are, Saucy and overbold How did you dare To trade and traffic with Macbeth In riddles and affairs of death …” (William Shakespeare, page 106) Hecate declaring that the witches has just wracked her enjoyment of seeing Macbeth suffering and enduring pain. Hecate is saying that the witches are helping Macbeth, but the witches are not cause they planted the seed of ambition in his head. Meanwhile Lady Macbeth hates seeing her husband plummeting in troubles.

However, there are some suggestions as to what took place. There is a possibility that Miles could have known that the governess thought she was seeing Peter Quint and that he only exclaimed Quint’s name in order to appease, or possibly prank the governess. There even exists a theory that, “the Governess ' anxiety-driven hysteria causes her to refuse to give up on the possibility that Miles is somehow connected to the ghosts, ultimately ending his life to fulfill her personal desire for the psychological truth. (Herold)” Either way, there is sufficient evidence to provide that in this scene Miles was not aware of any kind of supernatural presence. The governess even takes realization to this idea when she states, “wasn’t he looking through the haunted pane for something he couldn’t see?
After Mitzi reports that she believes Miss Blacklock is the murderer, the other characters seemingly brush her off as they do very frequently. It is in this chapter that the reader finally discovers that maybe Mitzi was on to something. After Mitzi’s outburst, Miss Blacklock joins her in the kitchen, confronts her, and Christie writes “Only I know that you’re telling the truth for once,” said Miss Blacklock viciously.” After this exchange of words, Miss Blacklock attempts to kill Mitzi. (Christie 265).
It can be assumed the messy sewing was the result of something going on with her husband. Perhaps she was angry or maybe she was nervous. It is mentionable that the discussion of knotting the quilt had a correlation with the way the rope was knotted around her husband's neck. Though it is never stated in the play, we can make a educated guess that her husband killed the canary. She decided to kill her husband the way that he killer her bird; she choked him.
While what we may be reading is not the exact terms that the original poet intended to use, we are using the translated terms to describe Grendel’s mother. In researching more extensively, in Old English, the original poet describes Grendel’s mother as “ides, aglæc-wif” (1259) which according to an Old English to Modern English Translator, “ides” means lady/woman, “aglæc” which means “trouble distress oppression misery grief torment” and “wif” which means wife. However, when translated, the translation is quite different. On the same line, in modern English, we get “monstrous hell-bride” (1259). Therefore, when analyzing the whole text to figure out who exactly is Grendel’s mother, perhaps it is impossible.
For example, on pages 183-184, Anna is dressed as a kitchen maid and has a flask of poison to kill John. She does this because her mother, Irene, wanted to kill John because he insulted the Ducai. Anna is unfortunately caught and Anna and Irene are sent to a nunnery. I think that if Anna had not been caught, she would rule in a more efficient way. Also I think that Anna would not die by cutting herself with a poisoned arrow while hunting the way that John Comnenus II did.
For example, in the silence and darkness of night, after Macbeth kills Duncan and Lady Macbeth frames the guards, she states, “My hands are of your color, but I shame to wear a heart so white,”(2.2.61-62). Saying that her hands were of his color means that her hands were covered in blood, an ubiquitous image that is used multiple times throughout the play. Notably, blood is connected to death and darkness, especially throughout Macbeth. The blood contributes to the evil theme and creates a dark tone; therefore, causing Lady Macbeth to be seen as evil. Along with the blood connection, the fact that she told macbeth that she would be ashamed if her heart was white (weak) as his reveals her desire to be strong.
Some people may say Lizzie iwas a wonderful woman. But was she really? For example, researchers make sense when they say Lizzie was to sweet of a woman to do such a thing,but she was actually a little crazy. In fact, she tried to by poison to kill her parents(Allard,2013). This shows that the people who think Lizzie is not crazy are wrong.
Arthur Miller wrote The Crucible in 1953. Miller wrote this because of his communist “witch hunt” situation. Miller had ties with communist and was suspected of it. He was summoned to the House of Un-American activities because of his connections, by Joseph McCarthy. Miller was condemned for 30 days without any evidence to support that he had any connections with communists.
If she was insane, the Landlady couldn 't have taken notice of which cup was poisoned. In her mind, poison was a quick and easy way to cause death without damaging the body. How could she have gotten her hand on the potassium cyanide in the first place if she hadn 't thought about how a victim 's death would play out? She couldn 't have. In order to get the potassium cyanide, the Landlady had to carefully plan how she would kill someone and then proceed to gather her supplies.
Many of those accused as witches died not just because of the accusers but, because of the unfairness of the trials. The judges of the trials used spectral evidence, ignoring the accused, and the judges were unfair because they believed in witches and want those who were witches dead. In the trials judges used spectral evidence. Spectral evidence is when the accused claim that they saw the spirit of the person on trial do something that they should not have done.
When Mrs Peters spoke about Minnie being worried about her preserves Henderson interjected with “Held for murder, and worrying about her preserves!” showing he does not understand or care about what Minnie thinks. Mr Henderson is just there to find evidence to charge Minnie Wright with the murder of her husband. We know this from reading “I guess before we 're through with her, she may have something more serious than preserves to worry about”. Mr Hale is not as rude to women as Henderson, although he can’t help the occasional comment.
—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.
