In Macbeth’s story, there are many different and diverse forces which drive the drama in the play. However, I will be focusing on the two main factors that contribute to this drama - political drama and psychological thriller. Political drama is shown as there are definite similarities between Macbeth and King James the first. A psychological thriller is portrayed through hallucinations and the ongoing fight that Macbeth experiences between himself and his self-conscience. Whilst both factors play critical roles in the drama throughout the play, which will be discussed, as a historian, I have an obvious bias towards the political side of the play.
The Enlightenment was a verbal war against the upholders of tradition and authority. Denis Diderot was part of the the eighteenth century guild of writers, publicists, and political reformers who pioneered revolutionary thoughts; The people who Questioned the Authority were not tolerated and they landed in jail. These philosophers risked everything Everything from their family to their lives, just to spread their propositions, about exploited principles such as freedom of press, trade, reason, and education. Denis’s Life work was the Encyclopedia, a weapon that can go against ecclesiastical and governmental institutions, that greatly influenced the revolutionary war.

The pairing of two texts presents us with a heightened understanding of the unique perspectives and contextual issues through the composer’s didactic interpretations on social, cultural and historical ideals. The anxieties of the weimar republic and the stresses of post world war one have deeply reflected in the composer’s perceptions in texts. The comparative study of the modernist film “Metropolis” (1927) directed by Fritz Lang and the futuristic dystopian fiction “Nineteen Eighty Four” (1949) written by George Orwell both explore societies with significant social disparities favouring overpowered figureheads who exploit their power and control against oppressed individuals. These individuals have the compulsion to seek an outlet for their suffering which is through rebellion. The
The Incarnation of Dostoevsky's World in that of Raskolnikov’s Abstract This essay examines the main social, philosophical, and psychological elements that had affected the Russian society as well as the world of Dostoevsky’s novel Crime and Punishment. It demonstrates the wild impact and clashes left by these theories – which I will be brought up soon – on the life, choices, and mentality of the novel and the characters embodied, the most important of which is the character of Raskolnikov, highlighting an “in-depth exploration of the psychology of a criminal, the inner world of Raskolnikov, with its doubt, fear, anxiety, and despair in escaping punishment and mental torture.ˮ “Raskolnikov a young man expelled from the university…fell
“HAMLET: Denmark’s a prison. ROSENCRANTZ: Then is the world one. HAMLET: A goodly one; in which there are many confines, wards and dungeons, Denmark being one o ' the worst.” (ACT II, SC II, 249-53) The image of Denmark as an obdurate prison started to fire the imagination of intellectual dissidents from nineteenth century onwards. They identified their irate spirit in Hamlet’s belligerent stance against an all-conquering system threatening to pervade individuality. Eastern Europe, especially Soviet Russia, became the hotbed for such experimentations because it regarded Hamlet as a reflection of its own essence and historical fortunes.
The apexes in their life are an example of another aspect existentialism touches upon, and that is the absurd. Meursault’s meaningless crime later appoints him a sentence of an inevitable death and the invisible man’s speech lands him underground for quite a while works to reveal the irrationality in our lives we are living in the world right now but for what reason and why at this time or at this place. Existentialists believed that to truly live you must have tackled this inevitable fact of irrationality of the world, now giving both characters a chance to actually comprehend how the world

He had glorified murderers and pimps and even the killers beings cold blooded. Genet has created onstage serious rituals out of make believe that are solemn as well both in his plays the maids and the balcony .In these plays he has investigated the public rituals of power and emptiness of societal roles. This difficult play feeds the reality and illusion off each other. The themes can be divided among those that are primary and essential and those that are secondary and non essential. The theme is clearly the analysis of transforming of the industrial society into a technocracy.
Directly after the end of World War II, the United States faced a time like no other—the Cold War. The fear of communism and the totalitarian Soviet Union grew rampant, and the possibility of an impending all-out nuclear war gripped American minds. During this time, the fear of a breach in national security heightened, and a loyalty review program in the government was introduced by President Truman. Soon, this practice crept into society, as everyday citizens undertook the responsibility of “policing” each other—determining each other’s loyalty, with suspicion constantly clouding one’s mind. Amidst this, American historian Henry Steele Commager, a product of the University of Chicago “…where he received his Ph.B.
In the debut of John le Carre’s novel, The Spy Who Came In from the Cold, there is a paradigm shift in the perspective on intelligence and espionage within popular culture. Gone are the days of heroic romanticism that came with characters like John Buchan’s Richard Hanay and Ian Fleming’s James Bond. Through morally ambiguous characters like Control and complex machinations that is Leamas’ mission, le Carre is establishing a systematic critique on the nature of intelligence agencies and their methods specifically in context of the Cold War. In a sense, the novel itself is anti-intelligence in theme, plot, and character. Specifically, the novel condemns the institution of intelligence as a whole to be dehumanizing of the people involved, immorality of its actions, and bereft of any ideological passion.
