The idea of a Western Samurai made me very interested in the samurai, that’s when I saw “The last samurai” movie by Tom Cruise as it showed that any one can join the samurai and have the honor of fighting along them side by side becoming one of them and have that special honor by respecting their code and having a samurai name. what really fascinates me is that the samurai weren’t a rare elite force; however, they were an entire social class and they were about 10 percent of Japan’s population at that time. What really grabbed my attention is the way the dress up, they were stylish and at their time they were rock stars in their style of clothing. The samurai dressed up to move with speed, to have freedom of movement and travel. The weapons were unique
The blood changes from guilt to fear as Macbeth starts to regret what he has done as the murders come back to stab him in the back. In act 1 scene 2 lines 60-66, Macbeth speaks of the blood on his hands after murdering Duncan as he starts to regret his actions. In act 3 scene 4 lines 122-140, Macbeth realizes that blood begets blood and continues to murder. In act 5 scene 1 lines 31-36, Lady Macbeth is crazy because of the spot of blood still on her hand and how the smell will never leave her. In these three examples Macbeth’s murders come back to frighten him.
Macbeth’s lack of sleep is due from the guilt and fear that has been haunting him since the murder, all the guilt has piled up resulting in hallucination and going insane to the point where he cannot tell natural from unnatural. He tries covering this outburst by saying it's a health problem when his conscience is the real problem. When Macbeth experiences this outbreak, he is afraid of what is happening and goes to visit the witches, who inform Macbeth that he is going to lose his reign. When Macbeth returns, the doctor questions Macbeth about Lady Macbeth’s sleepwalking, and how “This disease is beyond my practice! Yet I have/known those which have walked in their sleep who/have died holily in their beds.” (5.1.55-57).
Additionally, after she struck her husband, she thought that it was “funny” on how “he remained standing” for a while. Usually after committing a crime, people would immediately feel guilty and sorry, but Mary though it was “funny” and even “giggled” when the detectives ate the evidence. The readers would say she went insane after killing her husband and feeding his colleagues with the murder weapon, which creates tension within the readers. Briefly, Roald Dahl uses insanity to create suspense in ‘Lamb to the Slaughter’ as people that are insane are unpredictable, leading the audience to anticipate the ending of the
Stella thought Mauricio was off to see his love, so she circulated the room to rejoin Dr. Edwards and Sol. She searched for him amongst the tables to see what happened next, awkwardly she found him sitting next to another woman. Fearing this night would go to hell she vociferated in annoyance, “What is happening with this picture? He was jealous and protective of her as she entered the room and now he is sitting next to that lady.” Suddenly she panicked worse remembering, “Oh, My! I gave him alcohol!” Sol saw him with her own eyes and became horrified.
Internally, there were conflicts between his personality and his ambition. Externally, the witches and Lady Macbeth led to his contemplation of murdering Duncan. An internal conflict that raged within Macbeth occurred after he murdered Duncan. He was so distorted and guilty-stricken that he began to hear voices and felt he could not be forgiven. For example, before Macbeth kills Duncan he feels scared but after killing the king he feels guilty.
Those who commit crimes are often victims of their own feelings of guilt and shame. After realizing one’s mistake, individuals begin to feel disappointed in themselves as they comprehend where they misled themselves when making their decisions (Wright, Kim and Gudjonsson 307). At times, criminals take their regret and anger on themselves through self-harm. Oedipus had done the same when he had used a broche from his wife’s dress to stab him in his eyes, he was not able to see what acts he had committed in his life so felt that hurting his eyes would relieve his guilt (Sophocles 61). Furthermore, it has been stated that “feelings of shame in response to committing a crime have been hypothesized to impede confession” (Wright, Kim and Gudjonsson 307).
Throughout the tour, I notice that a few people feel uncomfortable. Especially when they passed through a wall full of gore photos. There were photographs in one hallway of a woman who had killed and castrated her husband with her boyfriend 's help. To tell the truth, these photos clearly disturb; Even more with the warning that accompanied the pictures saying "watch out for such girlfriends." Clearly, the entire atmosphere of the gallery easily gives one the sense that death is near.
As the play continues the image of blood haunts the characters so strongly it ultimately consumes their thoughts. Macbeth reveals the horror of the hallucinations his guilt has caused him when he states, “And on thy blade and dudgeon the gouts of blood/ which was not so before. There’s no such thing” (2.1.46-47). This statement reveals how Macbeth’s guilty conscience is causing him to see images that are not real. By Act V, Lady Macbeth’s guilt ultimately drives her mad, foreshadowing her death.
John and Jennie are starting to come to the conclusion that John’s wife is going insane. When John, goes to check on her he opens the door and faints in the doorway after seeing the horror of the bedroom. Throughout The Yellow Wall-Paper, the reader has seen symbolism and imagery several times. Gilman used symbolism and imagery to help the comprehensive aspect for the readers. If a reader were to read the story, word for word without thinking “outside the box”, the story might not develop and unfold as she intended.
