Alias Grace caught my eye because I watched another show inspired by one of Margaret Atwood’s novels, called The Handmaid 's Tale. Alias Grace is a short series about a woman murderer, Grace Marks, who is referred to as a murderess. Usually shows depict a man playing the role of a murderer, and that’s what makes this show so different from other murder mysteries. It is set in the 1850s and during this time, women were not taken seriously and their roles were mainly maids and housewives. It was such a big deal that a woman actually murdered someone, or was thought to have murdered someone anyways.
This shows Lady Macbeth's feeling of remorse while she relives the violent murder in her sleep. In the words “the old man to have so much blood in him”(5.1.41-42) she is not only referencing King Duncan's murder but all of the murders that Macbeth committed. This also shows how she is questioning why she pushed him to commit the murder. As well as questioning the fact that she had no idea that he would become so paranoid and start on a murder spree. Lady Macbeth believed that it was a one murder deal.
Detectives are still trying to make discoveries to this day as to who the actual killer is. The mystery behind the gruesome, cannibalistic murders from Jack the Ripper can be summed up by two suspects: Aaron Kosminski and Severin Klosowski. Jack the Ripper has left a mystery since his first horrific murder; the information that has been gathered helps narrow him down to specific suspects. In the time between August and November of 1888, in Whitechapel, five prostitutes were mutilated by a knife (“The Hunt”). The women who were known to be killed by him are Annie Chapman, Elizabeth Stride, Polly Nichols, Catherine Eddowes, and Mary Jane Kelly (“Jack the Ripper”).
In “A Jury of Her Peers” by Susan Glaspell, the sheriff, Mr. Peters, is struggling to find a motive for Mr. Wright’s murder case due to his sexist views. However, Mrs. Hale and Mrs. Peters, the sheriff’s wife, are able to find significant clues that lead to Mrs. Wright’s motive because they relate to her living conditions. Although Mrs. Wright claims to have been asleep during her husband’s murder, the women conclude she strangled her husband, Mr. Wright, as evidenced by the slaughtered canary, the broken bird cage, and the errant quilt patch. The slaughtered canary wrapped in silk is a significant clue, which leads to Mrs. Wright’s motive. When the women unwrap the bird, Mrs. Peters notices that “somebody wrung its neck.” It does not make sense for Mrs. Wright to kill her own bird because it was the only thing that brought light into her life.
Blood Relations by Sharon Pollock utilizes metadrama within its plot to stress the uncertainty that develops regarding the accusations that Miss Lizzie faces concerning the murder of her parents. At the end of Act 2, in lines 586-595 metatheoretical elements are present when Miss Lizzie denies the indictments that are directed towards her, concerning her involvement in her parent’s deaths. In line 593 The Actress regains control of her own character and comes to the decision that Lizzie did in fact kill her parents by saying “Lizzie you did” (Pollock 429). However, Miss Lizzie replies saying that “[she] didn’t. [The Actress] did.”; since this scene is metadramatic, it allows Miss Lizzie to transfer the blame for the murders onto The Actress (429).
“Woodchucks” by Maxine Kumin, which narrates her experience with woodchucks and how she lost her humanity trying to protect her garden from the pesky creatures. She uses such a simple past experience to symbolize something more profound. Throughout the poem she is at war with the woodchucks and as the story progresses, her means of extermination do as well. In the end, she uses a rifle to kill them all she is left saddened as she watches the last woodchuck die. The simplicity of the title is perfect for this poem because it leads the reader into thinking the poem is going to be a happy story about an encounter with a woodchuck, when in reality it is the retelling of the author killing woodchucks..
