He had just killed king Duncan and he says that he will never be able to wash all of the blood out of his hands. He feels so guilty that he thinks that what he did will never get better. He is seeing the consequence of listening to the witches. This is an example of guilt because at that point he would do anything to take it back. Another example of guilt is the hallucinations that Macbeth has after he kills someone.
In the movie Dead Poet’s Society directed by Peter Weir, the relationship between Neil Perry, his dad, and their interaction with Mr. Keating outlines a prominent theme. Shackling one from their dreams can only lead to disturbing consequences. The first example of this theme is within the relationship of Neil and his dad. “MR PERRY: After you've finished medical school and you're on your own, then you can do as you damn well please. But until then, you do as I tell you.
Even tough we see him arguing with himself and feeling disgusted, showing that he is very much humane, and his only fault being way too ambitious. That was interesting because we get the feeling that something out of the ordinary is coming up and our anticipation gets into the story straightaway. At the very end, in the beginning of Macbeth’s downfall we didn 't expect that a murderer like him would, even in defeat, display conscience and bravery. "I will not yield to kiss the ground before young Malcolm 's feet,... And damn 'd be him that first cries 'Hold, enough! '" (Line 32-39, Pg 249).
Capital Punishment Although, many may like to think otherwise, the line between good and evil is one that is incalculably thin, and one which is walked on every day. Thus, it is very simple for someone once deemed as a “good” person, to become evil. The worst part–often people are unaware that they have even crossed that line. If you are someone who believes and has voted for the death penalty, you no longer tread through the thin line, but rather stand bold faced in the side of evil. The death penalty is man’s way of playing God, statistically helps no one, and dehumanizes man.
When his father dies, Hamlet is incredibly grief-stricken and returns to Denmark from Germany to attend the funeral. Soon after, he sees the ghost of his father, who tells him to seek revenge and murder King Claudius. This alone makes Hamlet wonder if he is truly sane or merely hallucinating, and marks the start of his intense psychological journey through his own mind. When the ghost of his father tells him to seek revenge for him, Hamlet later remarks to himself, 2 “Yea, from the table of my memory; I’ll wipe away all trivial fond records, All saws of books, all forms, all pressures past; And
Interestingly, the only other character who tries to manipulate Lennie is Crooks. Perhaps jealous of Lennie’s friendship with George, Crooks meanly suggests that George might leave him, just to hurt Lennie’s feelings. He backs off, of course, when he realizes that he may get more than he bargained for, but Steinbeck may be making an interesting parallel here: Unlike most men, but like Curley’s wife, Crooks cannot rely on his physical strength to support him in such a tough world. As a crippled black man in 1930’s America, Crooks occupies one of the lowest rungs of the social hierarchy, and as such, all he has left to him is the power of his mind, as further symbolized by his glasses and books. Crooks just may be the smartest man in Of Mice and Men, but he is also the only man who tries to manipulate Lennie.
The author is able to use strong imagery of the "flesh from his belly" and "spread eagle” in order to show the reader the hopeless world that his characters live in. This imagery appropriately creates an obstacle for the anti-hero to overcome in accordance to his surroundings. By doing this, the male reader is more interested in what is going to happen to the anti-hero because he seems to be the only morally sane person. The reader is
Golding “...asks how superior we are to savages and he points to the superficiality of our civilization; indeed it seems to be powerless against the innate brutality of man, against his fear which is in fact against the innate brutality of man, against his fear which is in fact the expression of the evil that pervades the world.” (Michot). Humans “good” is just superficial and isn't truly what they are. Inside they are just savages that are trying to conform to society's norm, but inside they are selfish and evil. Therefore, humans are staying put as long as nothing triggers them, but inside they are full of selfishness waiting to be realized when others aren't paying attention which is quite
After pushing away every member of his family and causing confusion throughout the kingdom, Creon is faced with a new reality- he lost everything. He sent Antigone away to be locked up till her own death takes her, his son Haimon and his wife Eurydice took their own lives, and the prophet and people of the city look down upon Creon as he aches for his own death. Creon comes to a quick realization of his misfortunes at the sound of his poor wife 's last breath. With fear, he states "I have been rash and foolish. I have killed my son and my wife.
I will always…. *Splatt.. Macbeth let 's say, impaled? * I.. I.. will die.. with great h- *coughs blood* Honor, even.. now.. the spirits of those whom I had slain… haunt me as I stare death in the face… I… I 'm coming… dear wife.. *Macbeth reaches in the other direction, as he is in an illusion as if trying to grab his wife 's hand, as Macduff gives a clean slice right through the neck of Macbeth and his diary falls out of his armor, containing the same material in this document, Macduff reads it and is in awe, and walks out of the castle with the diary, head of Macbeth, and with a new, fresh start to serving a new kingdom, with the foundations being Justice and
During the duel, essentially everyone is killed. As Laertes and Claudius plotted their revenge on Hamlet, they plan to offer him poisoned wine as a back up plan. When Hamlet simply objects to the chalice, the queen takes a sip to her son 's success. As Gertrude stoops to her death, she calls to Hamlet, "No, no! The drink, the drink!
