The witches, Lady Macbeth, and Macbeth himself all show some form of madness throughout the play. The witches are mad because of their obsession of causing misfortune for no reason. Lady Macbeth becomes a power-hungry murder that in the end causes their guilty consciousness to lead them to their deaths.

Probably the most well-known god who was associated with percussion was Dionysius. He was the god of wine, merry-making, ritual madness, and fertility, and as a result, religious events were loose occasions in which socially uncontrolled behavior was common. In fact, priestesses of Dionysius were called maenads which means mad women; however, followers of Dionysius identified closely with the frame drum, krotalas, and cymbals. Another Greek deity directly associated with percussion was Persephone. Legend has it that she was kidnapped by Hades, the ruler of the underworld, and so was forced to spend half of every year with him.
The three stories I will be using are, “The Crucible”, “Animal Farm”, and “The Devil and Tom Walker” because they have really good, clear villains in them. “The Crucible” has too many villains to pick from but the main and most important villain is depicted as a small body, pale, young girl named Abigail Williams. She pretends to be poisoned by witch craft but is really a fake that brings at least a dozen more people into the unfortunate events called “The Salem witch trials”. She continually tells lies throwing people more dirt on innocent people that caused them to be hanged. She first deceives with her lips and then with her actions.

Mythology is consistently composed of stories that serve to explain the inexplicable in an attempt to make sense of the world in which we live. The Tales of Ovid in particular illustrates several crucial, reoccurring, themes within Greek literature: the most important being rape. Repeatedly, the tampering of the immortal gods often leads to the destruction of downfall of humanity, but specifically the gods play a crucial role in the unwilling defilement of women within the story. In this manner, deception achieves the desired trust, then the woman is raped resulting in the loss of her innocence, until finally she is severely ridiculed and punished in an unfair manner, often by other women, leaving her voiceless.
