Paige Cox Mrs Hamm Honors English IV 12 March 2017 Macbeth William Shakespeare’s classic play Macbeth is universally accepted as a tragedy about significant loss; however, a deeper inspection into the play and its underlying themes will reveal that this timeless piece of literature was also intended to teach a variety of valuable lessons to its audience. These lessons include, but are not limited to: with great power comes great responsibility, one should not always be easily persuaded or influenced, it is sometime okay to be selfish, and of course, consequences exist for all actions. Clearly, Shakespeare was not only a great playwright, but also an important teacher and influencer. Macbeth successfully teaches the lesson with
The man ends up killing his wife instead of the cat and promptly buries her in the basement wall. The cat, who jumped into the wall, starts to howl when the police arrive and gives the man away. The theme in both stories is that of good versus evil. Evil lurks in the hearts of all, and sometimes people act upon it. The author develops this theme by using first person narration and symbolism.
One piece of evidence that supports this claim is from “Ohio Man’s Shooting Of Ailing Wife Raises Questions About ‘Mercy Killings.” One quote is “...meant only to end the suffering of his wife, Barbara, 65.” This relates to Of Mice and Men because she was going to die anyway and he wanted to end her suffering. This is exactly what George wanted for Lennie. If he didn’t kill him Curley would’ve killed him and then he would’ve died without dignity.
That George got rid of the burden that Lennie was to him. On the other hand, George also knows what Lennie is capable of and knows what Lennie has done in the past. For example, the thing that happened in weed, “So he reaches out to feel this red dress an’ the girl lets out a squawk, and that gets Lennie all mixed up, and he holds on ‘cause that’s the only thing he can think to do” (Steinbeck 41). Lennie panics too much and just freaks people out, so George put Lennie out of his confusion. In the end, George murdering his friend was well justified.
Things were looking bad until luckily when they opened the bag the Cahill 'a cat ate the notes and the Holts leader raged and tried to get it out.

He is the same old evil Iago. He even said “maybe they just laid together naked and didn’t do anything” which is insane for him to even suggest to someone so full of jealousy. Iago also told Othello that Cassio said that he was in bed on top of Desdemona, which is also a lie. He is probably happy that Othello is killing his wife because this means he can kill Cassio, his enemy throughout this whole play. Iago is a very smart con man and takes advantage of any opportunity that arises and I gotta give him props for that.
A mentor, or a person who attempts to suggest and or change someone’s thoughts and possible actions. In the novel, Othello by William Shakespeare, the known mentor of Othello is Iago, the primary villain of the book. Due to his intense persuasion and influence, the whole novel seems to be changed by his cutting personality.
