Ophelia’s insane tune convinced the King and Queen that she was mad. Simultaneously, Ophelia was thrusting the ground and running around the castle. She had gone mad and it was all because of Hamlet’s madness caused from King Hamlet’s death. She loved Hamlet and Polonius, so their troubles caused her to go
Shakespeare 's Othello centers around the power of jealousy and how it can end up causing the death of a couple and some of those around them. Othello seems to grow incredibly jealous of his wife, Desdemona, and his lieutenant, Cassio’s fake affair that Iago, the villain, has convinced Othello of. As an act of jealousy, Othello decides to kill Desdemona to prevent her from hurting more men and then after realizing everything was part of Iago’s plan he kills himself due to the guilt he feels after having killed his wife. Shakespeare’s use of figurative language and symbolism in act 5 scene 2 reveals how even though Othello truly loves Desdemona, his jealousy for what he believes she has done has completely clouded his judgment and taken over

As the disasters that befell Salem were caused by the young girls ' hysteria of witchcraft, some of Miller 's critics perceived Abigail and her squad of followers as maleficent and vindictive driven by anger, cruelty and personal interests. Elizabeth Frayn interprets the hostility of the girls as a natural reaction to the negative view they receive in their society. For instance, Abigail is always regarded as a malicious girl who seeks to supplant Elizabeth as Proctor 's wife, and she is further motivated by Proctor 's threat to expose their affair if she does not clear his wife 's name ( Frayn 95). The girls are controlled by a fanatic society. Like Abigail, each of those girls has her own cause to be angry and simulate to kill her victims.
I chose a quote written by Shakespeare because it portrays revenge of Madea in a very clear manner. Shakespeare describes Madea’s revenge indirectly through his words. “ Vengeance is in my heart, death is in my head, blood and revenge are hammering my head.” – Aaron, Titus Andronicus, Shakespeare, 1588. Medea is a tragedy of a woman who feels that her husband has betrayed her with another woman and the jealousy that engrosses her. She is the principle who provokes sympathy because of how her desperate she is.
The poem starts off, “You may write me down in history/With your bitter, twisted lies/You may trod me in the very dirt/But still, like dust, I 'll rise.” The “still I rise,” that ends every few stanzas uses the epiphora literary device. Much like her poem, “Phenomenal Woman” this is a free verse poem. This poem aims to show people that nothing can tear the speaker down; that she, like the title of the poem, will “rise.” There are 43 lines in total made up of 7 quatrains and 2 end stanzas which help reinforce the theme of individual hope, 'I Rise ' being repeated in mantra
I will kiss thy lips. Haply some poison yet doth hang on them, To make me die with a restorative” V,iii,173-78. We see how Juliet, without any hesitation to the matter decides that she is going kill herself in order to be with Romeo. This shows us how irrational she has become, as she is willing to end her life, rather than continuing her life without Romeo. Moreover, this shows the amount of anger from her parents because they forced her to marry Paris despite her secret love for Romeo.
Macbeth thinks that Malcolm and Donalbain are plotting against him to have him killed, and grows more and more paranoid. Macbeth then hires assassins to kill Banquo and Fleance. Lady Macbeth starts to feel guilty Macbeths mind is "full of scorpions" (meaning his paranoia, she feels responsible). Macbeth ominously reveals to lady Macbeth that he plans to have Banquo killed. The assassins attack Banquo and Fleance.
Poetry is an English unit that improves literature knowledge, writing, and reading. Poetry, although at times challenging, can be an enjoyable way to express yourself by breaking grammar rules, adding aesthetic elements, or by using it as a strong outlet for emotion. Through the years, poets like Maya Angelou, Emily Dickinson, and Adrienne Rich, have listened to others speak their minds and from those words and own feelings of bravery, pen their poems. As Maya Angelou said, “The idea is to write it so that people hear it, and it sides through the brain and goes straight to the heart.” In my belief, poetry is essential. It teaches you about past important figures, types of metaphors, commas, dashes, and more.
For example, onomatopoeia is used in “Bang”, which is the sound of both a “red balloon bursting” and Havisham stabbing at her wedding cake after she receives the message from her ex-fiance. This shows how she is both heart-broken and furious due to her lover’s betrayal and all the shame he gave to her. In addition, the “Bang” can also be when Havisham wakes up from her dreams, with long-gone memories of her lover. In addition, the poet opens by describing Havisham’s ex-fiance, who deceived her completely, as “beloved sweetheart bastard”. This oxymoron is used, and this causes an extreme confusion - strong fragments are used to express Havisham’s anger.
