The games frustrated and embarrassed Hitler enough that he took action in the worst possible way. For Jesse Owens, he became a nationally known figure and became very popular for his running skills. The New York Mets even took notice and hired Owens as a running coach (Christopher Klein, section 9). People will remember the 1936 Berlin Olympic games forever. Hitler’s attempt to create positive propaganda that promoted his Aryan race had a major set back after men like Jesse Owens came in snatching gold medals from many different events and competitions.
In my opinion, Macbeth is a play of contradiction and desire. Headed to be King, Macbeth will slaughter all and any that get in his direction. He puts his confidence in the words and predictions of three witches, after their initial one, that he will get to be Thane of Cawdor comes through. Macbeth's wife, Lady Macbeth, is instrumental in Macbeth's aspiration, egging him on when he fears he has gone to far, and plotting of significance. An example of his murders are King Duncan and Banquo which he killed out of power and suspicion.
evil is represented through Macduff, whom represents the ‘good’ and Macbeth, who has been completely consumed by his evil counterpart. Macduff has fled to England to plot against Macbeth, therefore, in retaliation Macbeth sends murderers to Macduff’s estate to slaughter his family and staff all-the-while claiming treason as a means of justification. Macbeth says,” The castle of Macduff I will surprise; seize upon Fife; give to th’ edge o’ th’ sword his wife, his babes, and all unfortunate souls…” (Act IV,scn i, ln 150-153) Macbeth no longer cares if he kills the innocent. He will do anything and everything to protect his reign, sparing no one who deems a threat. This is why he has Macduff’s family killed, but what Macbeth hadn’t realized was now Macduff had nothing to lose and every reason to destroy him.
Enough.” Macbeth goes out of his way in an attempt to change fate and orders the murder of Macduff’s entire family. “He has kill'd me, mother: Run away, I pray you!” This drives Macduff to take revenge by killing Macbeth fulfilling the prophecy and ending Macbeth’s life. If Macbeth did not have so much ambition, he would not have visited the witches or even try to kill Macduff’s family. These two events demonstrate how Macbeth’s great ambition resulted in his downfall. Macbeth could’ve saved himself if he did not kill Banquo and Macduff’s family.
The Thane of King Duncan, Macbeth hears a prophecy that he himself will become king later on in the future after King Duncan. This then leads to Macbeth being overcome by greed. Since Macbeth greeds to be king so bad, he murders King Duncan and takes his place of the throne. Macbeth starts to live with so much guilt and fear that he commits even more murders to have his power safe. Macbeth is so confident in the prophecies that his life comes to a downfall and he gets killed by the people he did wrong.
Nero has his step brother, Britannicus, killed so that his rule was not opposed. He then has his mother assassinated due to her opposition to his relationship with a married woman (Seneca xii). When Nero discovers the Pisonian Conspiracy to overthrow him, he goes out of his way to have anyone so much as implicated as having a part in the plot executed. Much like Atreus, Nero lets his passions rule his life by unjustly killing those that he felt threatened his power. Since all of Seneca’s plays lack dates, it is unknown when he wrote Thyestes.
To Laertes, it does not matter whether it is a lowly servant or the king who kills his father; he will exact revenge on whomever the culprit. Claudius tells Laertes that Hamlet has killed Laertes’s father, and after learning that the person who killed his father also played a part in driving his sister mad which resulted in her death, Laertes’s determination to take retribution and kill Hamlet strengthens. During the duel, in which Laertes is supposed to pierce Hamlet with a poisoned rapier, Hamlet tells Laertes that “madness is poor Hamlet’s enemy.” (5.2.253) and asks Laertes “Free me so far in your most generous thoughts / That I have shot my arrow o’er the house / And hurt my brother.” (5.2.256-258). After hearing this, Laertes’s resoluteness falters slightly and says that he is “satisfied in nature” (5.2.259), but in “terms of honor” (5.2.261), he has to kill Hamlet. Regardless, he still says “And yet it is almost against my conscience” (5.2.324).
In the play everyone finds out that that Macbeth killed Duncan and the others, Macduff brings an army to attack Macbeth at his castle. Macbeth and Macduff starts to fight and his punishment was that he got his head chopped off. Everyone started to say “here comes newer comfort”(5.8.53). This shows his punishment because he got killed for his actions. He killed multiple people and thought that he would get by with it.
In stories where a character experiences a downfall, there is always something or someone who is to blame. Readers may wonder whenever these kinds of incidents happen. In the William Shakespeare play, Macbeth, the character Macbeth has an incredibly horrible downfall that progresses from the beginning to the end of the play. He starts out a normal man whom the audience would never expect to change in the way he does. As his wife, Lady Macbeth, urges him to kill king Duncan so he can become king, his urge for killing only grows and transforms him into a serial killer.
The witches played a colossal role in Macbeth’s downfall and ultimately, his death. Since the first part of the prophecy stated Macbeth as being the new Thane of Cawdor, he believed he could continue to become king as well. In knowing his prediction, Macbeth also realized that since the king was in good health, so he would have to kill the king himself. For the rest of his prophecy to come true he would have to kill the king for himself. “All hail, Macbeth that shalt be king hereafter!” (1.3.51).The witches sparked this greed and ambition in Macbeth that caused him to kill the king.
The Supreme Court ruled in their favor stating, "segregation of white and colored children in public schools has a detrimental effect upon the colored children. The impact is greater when it has the sanction of the law; for the policy of separating the races is usually interpreted as denoting the inferiority of the Negro group." However this decision did not suppress the racist ideals of Americans but in fact worsened them. In deep southern states, massive resistance against the new law erupted in protests, riots, and racial violence against the strive for equality. Some public schools even closed their doors rather than integrate and even reacted with
The supernatural motivates Macbeth comprehensively, to the extent that he murders King Duncan, Banquo and Macduff 's family. It galvanises him to do things that otherwise he would have thought were ludicrous. Firstly, the witches prophecies stimulated Macbeth to kill the ones he loves, as a consequence losing friends that were loyal to him. Additionally, Banquo 's ghost caused Macbeth to feel guilt and fear, causing him to rely on the witches’ predictions and having a false feeling of security. Finally, the vision of a bloody dagger that appeared right before the murder encouraged Macbeth to kill King Duncan.
The majority of American might argue that they should not be held accountable of their ancestor actions, which make perfect sense, but also needs to understand the system was created against minority groups. The inequalities, less opportunities, and unfair system of injustices of minority group had led to a divided nation. Slavery is a complicated and sensitive topic to talk about in our political correct society, it might invoke feelings of self-disgust, shame, guilt, humiliation, along with embarrassment for some
