Shakespeare’s Macbeth Essay Sometimes people have a goal and they won’t stop until that path is achieved. In the play Macbeth by Shakespeare it has positive and negative outcomes, when it comes to how Macbeth proceeds his life in such negative term transforming him into this man he wasn’t before. Shakespeare’s message about right vs wrong leads to the downward spiral of an individual. In the beginning of the play, Macbeth was working towards the king title, even if that led to a downward spiral in his life. Macbeth and Lady Macbeth went with a plan to kill his best friend Duncan, with courage to sticking with that plan / and: “when Duncan is asleep (whereto the rather shall his day’s hard journey soundly invite him)”.
Macbeth develops PTSD after murdering Duncan and the symptoms of that PTSD affect his choices and actions throughout the rest of the play. The first signs of Macbeth developing PTSD appear in act 2.1, right before almost while he murders Duncan. In fact, murdering Duncan in act 2.1 is the event that creates his PTSD. One can claim this for several reasons. First and foremost, according to the article Who Develops Posttraumatic Stress Disorder?, “Peritraumatic dissociation refers to unusual experiences during and immediately after the traumatic event, such as a sense that things are not real, the experience of time stretching out, and an altered sense of self.
Which set the theme for the play being, vengeance. How did King Hamlet affect the development of other characters in the play while being present so briefly? It all spins off of the one moment when he told his last words to Hamlet of what really happened to him. Once hamlet found out the truth, he started thinking of ways he could seek vengeance for his father and he ended up coming up with putting on this act so that people would think he’s going crazy, which effected every other characters development
Both texts have the same plot line where Iago or Ben Jago is set out to destroy Othello in vengeance for not getting the title/position that he thought that he deserved. He makes up the same lie where Desdemona is accused of cheating on Othello with Cassio/Michael Cass. In the play, Iago is very persistent when it comes to making Othello suffer by manipulating him and others throughout the whole novel without any empathy. Whereas in the novel Ben Jago does manipulate others but halfway through the film he does realize that maybe things have advanced past what he ever expected them to be. In the play itself, Iago does not know when to stop manipulating people and he also does not realize when things get pushed past it limits.
Tragedy is all around us in the world. The tragedy of Shakespeare’s play Romeo and Juliet is that so many people receive fault for the death of Romeo and Juliet. Friar Lawrence is at fault because he tells Juliet to fake her death and he is unable to communicate this to Romeo. Fate is also to blame for the deaths of Romeo and Juliet. Shakespeare writes the play giving the audience the final decision of who is at fault for the deaths of Romeo and Juliet.
In the play Macbeth by William Shakespeare, Macbeth is shown to be a conflicted character who goes through inner turmoil due to cravance for more power; his decision to kill King Duncan is developed by the use of the themes of murder, anxiety, and determination. The theme of murder is portrayed by the use of diction and sentence structure. In the lines 13-15, Macbeth states, “ I see thee still/ And on thy blade and dudgeon gouts of blood/ Which was not so before.” The use of diction works alongside the visual imagery because it emphasizes the actions, for example, “dudgeon gouts of blood”. The diction helps illustrate the bloody scene that Macbeth is imagining, giving off bad omens that foreshadow the possible consequences such as feelings
Macbeth cannot control his paranoia and hallucinations, but he can control his actions towards the prophecies he 's given in the beginning. By the end of the play, his paranoia led to his lonely demise which showed how he believed in the prophecies. Macbeth’s control over his destiny reflects on what the play is teaching us overall. A way Macbeth is in control of his destiny is when he believes in the prophecies. For example, after Macbeth encountered the witches, he had a small monologue.
Again saying that Macbeth was already in complications with “Freedom”, “Will”, and “Guilt” making it easier to be controlled by the witches. The witches using different techniques to get into Macbeth’s head caused changes in the uses and meanings of the apparitions. There was a major change in the depiction of the apparitions from the play and the thoughts of Justin Kurzel. The apparitions can be seen in a different order that they are given and also each one is either slightly different or way different from the original play version. Since the film drifted off from the original plot of the play, this would cause things to change just as the apparitions did.
He is not yet convinced thoroughly that he is going to commit the murder, as he has moments of respite in between seeing the dagger and questioning its reality. Throughout the soliloquy, Shakespeare builds tension to coincide with the decision making that Macbeth has to do. He does this first through repetition of the phrase “I see”. Every time this phrase is used, more detail is added to what Macbeth is conveying increases the tension as the dagger gradually starts leading him towards Duncan’s chambers. After this, as Macbeth becomes closer and closer to becoming certain in his decision, Shakespeare personifies murder, saying that it “moves like a ghost”, creating a supernatural atmosphere, as well as alluding to “Tarquin’s ravishing strides”.
Blame often occurs in everyday life, usually rooting from a social issue. Blame can be coincidental, however, it can also be deliberate. Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet, utilizes blame as a main theme in the play. As a matter of fact, many reasons and actions established in the play prove that fate is to blame for the star cross’d lovers’ deaths. Romeo and Juliet were born into rival families, Romeo is guided to an Apothecary who is desperate enough for money to sell an illegal poison, and Friar John is coincidentally locked into a house infected with the plague and fails to deliver the letter to Romeo from Friar Lawrence.
