Macbeth Literary Analysis In Shakespeare’s tragedy Macbeth, blood is a reoccurring image that is used to add meaning to the plot, however, the meaning changes as the plot progresses. Blood, which commonly signifies the essence of life, can also be used to represent just the opposite. The image of blood is used heavily in Macbeth to represent bravery, guilt, and reflect changes in the characters throughout the play.

It addresses the hopelessness of the century and the entrapment of the times which was caught in the Wars. It is timeless as we see recurrent failures of individuals in the contemporary times despite countless efforts and our frustration resonates with that of Frodo, who was a strong character but surrounded by corruption and different kinds of evil. Frodo finds an agency to act out his will and fate in the company of his Fellowship and despite his horrors of causing them mortal harm, he is glad to find atleast one companion. One may ask the function of such fantasy or the accusation of it being a children’s genre. Also what kind of confirmation is being expected from such stories or works of fiction?

However, I do feel that he leans too heavily on sadness
In conclusion we see many contrasting ideas in the epic and the movie. We see characters that were added solely for more entertainment purposes and drama. Beowulf is portrayed to have more human qualities rather than being boastful and proud like in the epic. The culture and society we live in now so much more different than it was at the time of the story. We are so used to the drama and tragedy of today’s culture, that we have to adjust already amazing stories to fit the our need.
Seconds after the nurse comes out and takes away Daisy’s child.
