Sacrifice strong souls, souls that can fight in my army, then I shall relent and allow you to build this grave,” Hades bargained. “If not, you shall die alone on this island, either from the animals here, or you die from this island’s air.” “Should I accept this contract? Where would I find 100 people to kill? Even if it is to save my life, is it right to kill 108 men?”
In the play, he is a military general with no hope for the throne other than what the Weird Sisters acknowledge as his fate. “All hail, Macbeth, thou shalt be king hereafter!” ( Shakespeare 1.3.53). They say he will be king, but do not say how. However, the Macbeth of Scottish history was a recognized Duke for Duncan I with a legitimate claim to the throne through his mother’s bloodline.
His ambition also hides logic and consequences from him. Macbeth gives sound reasons for why he should not kill the king, they could be caught, Duncan had always been good to them, he wants to appreciate his new title before he puts it in jeopardy, and he knows there are always consequences for killing
The main characters are Macbeth, Banquo and Macduff. As for my favourite character, I have to go with the heartbreaking saint, Macbeth himself. From numerous points of view, he relates with the normal human one might say where even the most fearless, the most gallant of men can impart murkiness inside of themselves by the vicinity of avarice and helplessness to tension. His character presentations what can happen to even the great heartedness of
He sent a lot of soldiers to fight for the land that didn’t even worth it. Thousands of people are sending to death for no reason. Also, Hamlet killed Polonius with direct action. “Nah, I know not, is it the King?” (Shakespeare 81)
Prince is telling them if they ever fight again in the streets of Verona they have to pay for it with their lives. By the Prince saying this, he is making a rule and he wants Tybalt and all the other Capulets and Montagues to follow. If not, there will be consequences, like death. But Tybalt does not listen and gets in another fight. He ends up dying in that fight later on in the story.
In Act 4 Scene 4, he says, “while, to my shame, I see the imminent death of twenty thousand men, that, for a fantasy and trick of fame, go to their graves like beds, fight for a plot whereon the numbers cannot try the cause”. He is jealous of Fortinbras’ ability to inspire thousands of men to lay down their lives in battle, while he cannot even motivate himself to exact revenge on his uncle for his father’s murder. He wishes he could find the courage to do what he’s been asked to. He desires the charisma and motivation that Fortinbras has. This feeling motivates Hamlet to take more action and stop procrastinating what he needs to do.
Soldiers are told to executing the order and unaware of the story and who the poor guy is. Peyton, however, is of more importance to the story. In a process of story, which has one of its central purposes is Peyton had romanticized the war, and get the consequences that he deserves. Caught burning the bridge, before his execution, he suddenly has created a whole another scenario which he escapes the execution. Peyton’s desire to live his thirst for life was significantly strong, he knows that there is no escape from this but still by his imaginary he could live long enough to enjoy the last few
This causes Macbeth to take action to try to ensure that he will not lose the crown to Banquo’s descendants. Unlike Macbeth killing Duncan to fulfill a prophecy, here, Macbeth is acting on the basis of trying to stop a prophecy from being fulfilled. The murderer’s end up killing Banquo but Fleance manages to escape, which means the prophecy may still come to pass. It is interesting that in spite of the actions Macbeth takes, it appears as though fate is what has kept Fleance alive. Had he died, none of Banquo’s descendants would have been able to be king one day.
I know you can win this war!” The reason it’s making me re-enlist is because the people need my help to get their freedom just like my friend. And I will get it for them and my friend. I will do what I can and besides I want to die for honor and purpose for my country than to die with nothing to live for and no reason to
This time around, he was given another life sentence plus fifty-four years. At this point he was ragging and hurt, missing his family, friends and right to freedom. He went back and forth with the thought of killing Poole but after talking to his dad about it, decided he would try to make the best of his life, no matter how hard it would be. He explained that he wanted to leave it in God’s hands since he knew he was an innocent man. God would lead him in the right direction.
He decided to run off from the fear of dying in battle get away from him.
Either decision O’Brien makes will impact his living for the rest of his life. In the end O’Brien goes to war but calls himself a “coward” (pg. 55). What O’Brien did, is what most people consider brave going to war “defending” your country however O’Brien considers that maybe fleeing would be even
The general speaks,“Look at your village boy! There is no home for you! So I give you a choice!” He pauses, points at dead bodies, then resumes, “You can end up like them, or you take this machete and end your families life, but be safe with us” I stare into the eyes of father and brother, we are knowing this is the last time we will see each other. I cannot help crying, so does brother but not father, father is being strong.
