This only makes the betrayal of Macbeth even more unforgivable, knowing that he only did so for himself. Macbeth’s disinterest in Banquo’s murder displays his loss of humanity, and his absence of morality makes it clear that he no longer cares for his closest friend. Banquo’s murder is deplorable as Macbeth’s sociopathic behavior demonstrates his utter lack of empathy. After going to war and trusting
“To-morrow, and to-morrow, and to-morrow, Creeps in this petty pace from day to day”, the repetition and personification used shows the significance is to show Macbeth 's discontent with life. Life no longer has meaning, now that the love of his life is dead. This also shows he doesn’t realize the contribution she made into making him a heartless killer and that now he is possibly oblivious to it all. Macbeth at the beginning was valued and was genuinely a noble man, where as to this point he has let himself be misguided to become a man of destruction now called a “tyrant, bloodier villain, dead butcher”. Macbeth refuses to take responsibility for all the pain he has caused and he doesn’t want to die without a fight, although this is the finish to all of Macbeths destruction he does not want to kill Macduff “Of all men else I have avoided thee; my soul is too much charged with blood of thine already” this metaphor used is showing how he already has so much blood on his hands, he doesn’t need any more, this can be seen as slight integrity but he still goes on to fight even though its already known of his deeds, “They have tied me to a stake; I cannot fly, but bear like I must fight the course”.
Shakespeare sets the tone of fear using this literary device to show how there are harsh consequences for killing Tybalt. Shakespeare further explores this theme when Romeo asks, “Doth she not think me an old murderer, / Now I have stained the childhood of our joy / With blood removed but little from her own?” (Shakespeare III.iii.103-105). Shakespeare’s choice of words ,
They both support their own failures, but Antigone’s reason is religious purposes and familial relations, quite contrasting to Creon’s cause of oblivious selfishness. Creon cannot read the mood, taking everything personally and believing threats to others were direct aggression to him. When Polynices goes against Thebes, Creon takes it way too far and refuses to give the man rights even after he’s dead. When his son threatens suicide if Antigone is to be killed, Creon misunderstands and thinks that he is the one who could die. He does not even recognize his own faults at all, only seeing the effects and realizing that he must have done something without knowing what.
As being beheaded results in death, banishment just means that he has to move and he will still live. According to Romeo, being away from his love is far worse than dying, which nearly anyone can see is an overstatement. To really paint a picture of what he thinks would be less painful than his banishment, Romeo kindly fills us in on how the scene would take place. He seems to have gone a bit mad at this point saying that he would “...smilest upon the stroke” that would ultimately kill him
Figurative Language Response Shakespeare demonstrates the theme that being impulsive will affect your life negatively throughout the book Romeo and Juliet. There are many instances included in this novel that Romeo & Juliet’s youth takes hold of their thinking, and their quick decisions leads to a chain reaction; their death being the final event that shows the result of their impulsivity. This recurring theme is manifest in the following passage (1.5.152-155): My only love sprung from my only hate! Too early seen unknown, and known too late! Prodigious birth of love it is to me That I must love a loathed enemy.
At the end of the play, John is forced into a decision that would affect his no matter his choice. He can either be hanged, or live in shame for the rest of his days. In the end he chooses to die rather than to compromise his all important reputation within the town. This internal struggle helps illustrate the theme of hysteria in a few ways. John undergoes his own hysteria as he comes to see that the only way to make John Proctor a good man was to not confess for a crime he didn’t commit.
Here he hesitates to kill claudius because if he does he’ll go to heaven and that would be pointless to send a villain to heaven. “And so he goes to heaven, And so I am revenged. That would be scanned; A villain kills my father and for that, I, his sole son, do this same villain to heaven.” (Shakespeare.83) Hamlet lets the opportunity to kill Claudius go here because in result he will just
O mischief, thou art swift To enter in the thoughts of desperate men! I do remember an apothecary— And hereabouts he dwells—which late I noted! In tattered weeds, with overwhelming brows, Culling of simples." Romeo and Juliet is said to be one of the greatest love stories ever told, but in reality, it's a tragic romance with complex dialogue and characters that don't spend a lot of time to think over their decisions. The play was written with plenty of figurative language and irony.
Hamlet is arguably the most revered and re-enacted of Shakespeare's plays. In Cold Blood is commonly recognized not only as an American tragedy but also as a human tragedy, the malevolent as well as the uncanny nature of human existence is beautifully portrayed in the novel. Both the play and the novel are successful because of the universal themes they portray, including revenge, deception and madness. Hamlet and In Cold Blood show how revenge, deception and madness can be all-consuming and will inevitably be destructive (Teaching Companion, 2010). The works of William Shakespeare and Truman Capote as described in Hamlet and In Cold Blood are similar and, at the same time, differ in how revenge, deception and madness can be all-consuming
