Lady Macbeth pressured Macbeth to kill Duncan in order to become king and gain more power for themselves. When Lady Macbeth uses the word “night”, it was always associated with the subject of murder. Also, when other characters in the play used the word, it was used to show sorrow or grief for the deaths that occurred or used for its literal sense. Macbeth was reluctant to kill Duncan because it was immoral
Now that the important murders have been committed by Macbeth, the word night starts to take a different in its usage and meaning. Though it maintains its meaning as to signify impending doom and negativity, the target of that doom and badness is now directed at Macbeth. Starting with Scene 1, the witches cast a spell in their cauldron to create apparitions that would deceive Macbeth.

This shows throughout the play how MacBeth was loyal to the king but then ended up killing him and taking over the entire country.
Man vs. Society is a type of conflict in the book “Night” written by the late Elie Wiesel. Life was harsh for the Jews in the concentration camps; it was so harsh both Jew and officer lost their humanity. One of the few people who kept their humanity was a Dutch man. He never insulted any of them; he even tried to free the Jews. Sadly he was caught and hung. When the battle front moved close to the camp, the clearing where the Jews were fed had two cauldrons of soup. Everyone sat in the shadows unsure of whether they should take the risk, for they knew it would be suicide. One man dared challenge the status quo and ran towards the soup, but he was shot in the back and “[fell] to the ground, his face stained by the soup” (60). As the battlefront
Reporter of the Los Angeles times, Paul Bogard, wrote an article “Let it be dark” which he describes his life with his family on a cabin in the woods. He could see meteors and the shiny dust it leaves behind and most likely the stars. He writes to tell that the world he lives in today is much different than the one he live with his family. He knows that darkness is worth so much to Earth and to the human race even if they do not realize it. “Too little darkness, meaning too much artificial light, means trouble for all” if no measures are taken then trouble will come.
There are many factors that determine how people behave in their daily lives. We are run by a number of rules and regulations that influence the way we behave, talk and live. In Lord of the Flies, William Golding shows that without the influence of a civilized society and law and order, people’s characteristics can change drastically. Similarly in Macbeth, Shakespeare represents the loss of morality of a leader as his hunger for power clouds his judgement. Both pieces of literature present how both writers view the breakdown of morality through the breakdown of civil behaviour.

William Shakespeare, playwright of Macbeth, shows the importance that power and corruption can hold on a person’s humanity. In order to prove the true effect of personal gains, he uses the main character, Macbeth, to show how evil people are willing to become. Personal power has the ability to be essential to greatness, but at the same time is able to destroy a person’s true nature. Believe it or not, Macbeth once was a man of honor. At the beginning of the play, Macbeth was loyal to King Duncan, a strong military leader, and a respected husband. Throughout the tragedy, Macbeth 's character takes a big, yet gradual change for the worst as ambition starts to completely take over him. Once the three witches give Macbeth his prophecies he transitions from a brave, loyal man to a cold blooded murderer. His power hungry personality leads to a character change from who he was before he knew about the witches prophecies, after he learned of them, and right before he was murdered. In Macbeth, Shakespeare dramatises the damaging physical and mental effects of ambition on those who seek power for their own sake.

For instance, Malcolm, Duncan and Macduff are portrayed as righteous, and their deeds are performed in light or during the day. The imagery on darkness is associated with the characters that are deemed as evil including Macbeth, Lady Macbeth and the witches. Shakespeare chooses to use this light and darkness imagery to indicate the degree of goodness and badness of the characters. This study, therefore, shows more instances of imagery of light and darkness as used in the poem.
