At first glance the song seems very illogical in a sense, due to how this particular piece is composed. It’s framed as a breakup song, with King George being the bitter ex-lover and the audience, which are Americans, portraying the other party. On one hand, the audience could interpret the king as being someone who simply can’t let go, however there seems to be a darker undertone to the song that’s not very transparent. At one point the king even says that he “will kill your friends and family to remind you of my love” which is more along the lines of an abusive relationship than simply a person who is being bitter (Miranda). The logic of this statement is that the Americans should return to England so that their friends and family won’t be killed.
Macbeth’s quick transition of concern from Banquo to Fleance exhibits his disregard to the people close to him, a distinct behavior often tied to sociopathic people. Macbeth’s calm and collected attitude after the news of Banquo’s murder is unnerving and frightening, especially after seeing how affected he had been at the murder of King Duncan. When killing King Duncan, Macbeth was thoughtless and anxious, but when planned the murder of Banquo Macbeth was cool minded and collected. Macbeth was once a trustworthy man, but now is a disrespectful and violent king. Furthermore, after Banquo’s murder, his body is shown no respect as “Safe in a ditch he bides,/With twenty trenchèd gashes on his head” (Shakespeare 101).
Lin Manuel Miranda, American author, actor, playwright, and composer, is best known for his most recent Broadway musical, Hamilton: An American Musical, which follows the life and legacy of Alexander Hamilton, one of the United States of America’s “Founding Fathers”. In this musical, Hamilton introduces himself by saying, “...There’s a million things I haven’t done, but just you wait. Just you wait” (Miranda). And while this is true of Hamilton, it is also true of Beowulf, the Geat thane who became king after defeating the monsters that plagued the Land of the Danes. Though one real and one fiction, Beowulf and Alexander Hamilton both can be viewed as ‘heroes’ through their abilities to embody the values of their time, such as generosity, dedication, and bravery.
The Ten Commandments is an important aspect of the religion motif that plays a big part in character development and audience sympathy with characters through the play. One of the most well known commandments is the fifth one that says thou shall not kill. Murder is considered by pretty much everyone to be the worst crime of all time and is a serious mortal sin. Romeo actually kills two people in this play as evident in, “[They fight, Tybalt/Paris falls]” (3,1,125) (5,3,71). This should make the audience really despise Romeo along with the rest of the characters in the play, but this really is not the case.
