The witches are talking in iambic pentameter, a writing style used by Shakespeare, which makes their words sound like a rhyming chant. The quick transition into the casting of a spell shows that the witches only truly care about Macbeth, not petty revenge against a minor character. The audience can then forget about the captain of “The Tiger” because he will most likely not play a future role.The idea that the captain is unimportant can help the audience focus on the main character, Macbeth, and what is happening to him. However, Shakespeare’s inclusion of the captain of “The Tiger” helps characterize the witches in many ways. For example, part of their characterization occurs in Act One, when the three witches are talking about who they have recently tormented.
Edmund Kemper/David Berkowitz The murder cases of Edmund Kemper and David Berkowitz have many differences and a surprising number of similarities.

Not only does Iago contribute to the isolated Desdemona, her maid Emilia does as well. It can be argued that Emilia knew Desdemona so deeply in contrast to the other characters that the two shared a deeper bond past conversation, this is important to note as Emilia eventually proves the isolation of Desdemona, that even her most trusted friend befalls to the lies that are being told by Iago. Desdemona’s isolation slowly grows throughout the play due to the actions of others and the actions of Desdemona as well. Othello isolated himself from Desdemona, the act of this isolation had been thought out by Iago. This is seen when Iago and Othello discuss the relationship of Desdemona and Cassio, “Did Michael Cassio, when you wooed my lady, Know of your love?” (Shakespeare 3.3.103).

Overall in The Crucible it is clear that women are seen as more easily
Specifically, Arthur Miller wrote on his experiences with the Red Scare and how he connected his feelings to his play. He wrote “McCarthy’s power to stir fears of creeping communism was not entirely based illusion of course; the paranoid, real or pretend, always secretes its pearl around a grain of fact.” Fear was being treated like a seed, once planted it grows and spreads, but if not controlled will ultimately be lost to its growing vines, the truth that so many seeked no longer being a viable thing. This concept can be seen once again when Reverend Hale approaches the Proctor family during the height of the Salem Witch Hunts. “I never knew until tonight that the world has gone daft with this nonsense.” Proctor acknowledged that this event was getting extremely out hand, much like the events of the Red

Although the story starts out without indirectly discussing the murder of the king, we as readers can interpret that this act of violence has already taken place. The biggest question around is: “Who killed the King?” When the ghost visits Hamlet, readers and Hamlet become informed that King Claudius is the one who killed the king. (Act I, Scene 5, lines 39-40). This brings major tension into the mood and tone of the characters because now Hamlet has a feel for all the betrayal that is taking place around him. It also leads to a downfall of almost every character in the play.
Seen throughout the book, Of Mice and Men, the character development of the main character, Lennie, was changing to a more violent and uncontrollable human, and foreshadowed his death.

many times, these “abnormal" people repeat their actions, not only because they might enjoy their actions, but also mental problem block them understanding how horrible and extreme their actions really are.

In both stories, the main characters can easily be classified as psychotic, from their disturbing behavior patterns and the actions committed by both individuals. In the story of "Emily Rose".

My daddy died.. of the epidemic flu and I never had a thing to do with it.’”(pg 148). The reader does not expect this information to be revealed. Subsequent to this revelation, the reader had been constantly bombarded with negative notions of the killer. This scene serves as an abrupt break of negative feelings towards the killer, and instead this animosity is replaced with subtle sympathy. This prompts the readers to re-evaluate the killers character, until he murders the rest of the family.
