In Macbeth, blood is a symbol used to represent guilt and how one's guilt will cause them to act with concupiscence. If an individual feels guilty about an action they will do anything to try to make up for that action or clear their conscience. They may cross a line in which they never had thought of crossing before in order to fight their guilt. In the play Macbeth by William Shakespeare, Macbeth feels guilty about the many murders he has committed and his guilt has turned to paranoia. His paranoia is evident in his conversation with lady Macbeth about banquo when he says, “Come, seeling night, / Scarf up the tender eye of pitiful day / And with thy bloody and invisible hand / Cancel and tear to pieces that great bond / Which keeps me pale” (Shakespeare 3.3.52-56).
“Iago belongs to a select group of villains in Shakespeare who, while plausibly motivated in human terms, also take delight in evil for its own sake” (Bevington, 2014, p 607).

What drives him to act as he does? Some people believe Iago is simply, but purely, evil, doing immoral things merely to be bad” (Hacht, 2007, p, 657).

Creon using his own form of divine justification explains,”…you are saying what is intolerable, when you say that Divinities have providential concern for this corpse…this fellow who Came to burn the temples girded with columns…(282,286). It becomes evident in these lines that Creon believes that it’s only natural to punish the wicked for their part in harming Thebes.

He “acts pitilessly towards Polyneices’ already grieving relatives by further inflaming their grief”(Ahrensdorf and Pangle 144). Creon goes into conflict with the pious rules set forth by the Gods in response to death.
