The characters of Shakespeare's thrilling play Macbeth strongly resembles the characters of the story of Ahab found in 1 and 2 Kings. Macbeth and Lady Macbeth are similar to Ahab and Jezebel primarily by both men's evil ambitions. In both stories the wives greatly influenced their husbands to do whatever it took to achieve what their selfish hearts wanted, in both stories this would be to commit murder for personal gain. Both stories resulted with consequences for their actions, which for most of these characters was death. In both stories we are introduced to Macbeth and Ahab who originally are portrayed as very noble men.
Another time he shows cleverness is when he creates a plan to get rid of the suitors, instead of just barging in to see his wife and family (“Twenty years gone, and I am back again…”). Odysseus knew that if he went back without a plan, the suitors would just kill him. He was smart enough to wait for his moment then strike. Additionally, he was clever enough to make such a good plan that he could kill all the suitors and take his life back, which is what he did. Odysseus’s repeated demonstration of cleverness helped him through his journey and made him a true
At first, he second guessed the bloody murder of his king. However, his wife, Lady Macbeth, talked him into this by calling him a coward and asking if he was a man. To prove to her that he was a strong individual, he followed through with the act of killing King Duncan. This confirms that the pressure of others persuaded Macbeth’s actions. Macbeth wanted the blame to be placed on someone other than himself so the people showed loyalty to him as the new king.
The witches played a colossal role in Macbeth’s downfall and ultimately, his death. Since the first part of the prophecy stated Macbeth as being the new Thane of Cawdor, he believed he could continue to become king as well. In knowing his prediction, Macbeth also realized that since the king was in good health, so he would have to kill the king himself. For the rest of his prophecy to come true he would have to kill the king for himself. “All hail, Macbeth that shalt be king hereafter!” (1.3.51).The witches sparked this greed and ambition in Macbeth that caused him to kill the king.
“There is likewise another great advantage in my scheme that will prevent those voluntary abortions and the horrid practice of women murdering their bastard children.…” (Swift 432). Swift argues with reasoning and gives his moral stance a way to turn the situation into a solution. Swift’s solution is to fatten up undernourished children and sell them to rich land owners in Ireland or have them sold into meat markets at the age of one, sparing
Now while Banquo never plans Macbeths murder like Mary plans Elizabeth 's they both end up being killed for the crime. Macbeth does so because he suspects Banquo will try and kill him to have his son become heir and gain extensive power over the country. Elizabeth does so, because Mary is trying to kill her for power and Catholic rule. Both characters oppose what they perceive as unjustly rule and both characters are murdered. Another similarity would be how their sons got away unscathed, making the character of Banquo 's son, Fleance parallel to James.
It wasn’t until later that Gein was suspected of killing his older brother. After the death of his mother, nobody was left who could stop him, and Gein started living out his horrible fantasies and performed disgusting experiments on dead bodies. The trigger to his serial killing was that he desperately wanted to have a sex change and for some reason that made him believe that he would need fresh bodies to transform himself. Gein claims that his killing spree and disturbing psychological state was due to his love-hate relationship with his mother that was sprung from the way she brought him up as a child.
After hearing from the prophecy from the Weird Sisters, Macbeth realizes his potential to become king of Scotland. His ambition and wife drive him to take action and kill King Duncan. “I have no spur to prick the sides of my intent, but only vaulting ambition, which o'erleaps itself and falls on the other— (1.7.25-28)” Although Macbeth handled the murdered the of King Duncan very well, he did leave some holes in which people could figure out that he did kill Macbeth. For example he kills the guards which causes Macduff and the other
Originally, Macbeth needed persuasion from his lady to follow through with Duncan’s murder; however, the audience sees Macbeth’s ambition grow when he plans Banquo’s death on his own. He even tells his wife to “be innocent of knowledge, dearest chuck” (3.2.45). This act of lonely violence displays the progress of Macbeth’s ambition. He went from a man who needed an extra push in order to carry out such an evil plan to one who was able to orchestrate his own scheme. Guilt and fear consume Macbeth after the first murderer informs him that Banquo has been killed but his son Fleance escaped the murderous grasp.
For them to spot each other from across the room in a place where Romeo would normally have been forbidden, is concrete proof that fate was in full command.

Alexander was selfish, cruel and an overall power-hungry tyrant. Alexander is very well known for blending cultures, but what people don’t realize is that he used methodical, demanding ways to do so. If Alexander was a great leader he would have found a nicer way to do this, but Alexander wanted fast, easy power over large areas of land. For example, in 324 B.C.E., Alexander deduced that he must “...[force] his men to marry Persian women as a way of making sure there is a blending of cultures.” (World Generation: Timeline) This supports that Alexander was forceful because made his men marry and have children against their will. Alexander was a tyrant for many reasons including only caring about himself and his forceful and cruel tactics.
Oedipus had been informed by the Oracle at Delphi that he would kill his father and then “bed,” or have children, with his mother, all while Laius and Jocasta were being told by the Oracle that their son would grow up to kill Laius. Both were fulfilled in the end, of course, and the prophecy ended up being true because Laius was in fact murdered by his son, and Jocasta did have children with Oedipus. On page 31 it read, “I stand a wretch, in birth, in wedlock cursed, A parricide, incestuously, triply cursed!” This line describes how Oedipus was cursed three ways from the start, and that only such fate could be brought on by the
