Macbeth’s quick transition of concern from Banquo to Fleance exhibits his disregard to the people close to him, a distinct behavior often tied to sociopathic people. Macbeth’s calm and collected attitude after the news of Banquo’s murder is unnerving and frightening, especially after seeing how affected he had been at the murder of King Duncan. When killing King Duncan, Macbeth was thoughtless and anxious, but when planned the murder of Banquo Macbeth was cool minded and collected. Macbeth was once a trustworthy man, but now is a disrespectful and violent king. Furthermore, after Banquo’s murder, his body is shown no respect as “Safe in a ditch he bides,/With twenty trenchèd gashes on his head” (Shakespeare 101).

Michael Hoffman’s 1999 adaptation of A Midsummer Night’s Dream, among numerous alterations from Shakespeare’s original work, fundamentally challenges the audience’s former notions of Nick Bottom. Often viewed by other critics and filmmakers, and even Shakespeare himself, as a simpleton, Bottom has seldom been portrayed as anything other than a lowly beast or a foolish clown. However, in his film, Hoffman abandons commonplace interpretations in order to create a rounded and complex character through which the audience finds empathy and compassion. Hoffman achieves this task of reinvigorating Nick Bottom through his use of thematic elements, costume design, and character interactions. Through their comical ignorance, in stark contrast to the
Though this fulfilled the boys’ need to eat, they completely neglected their other duties to ensure survival. The boys might have been cultivated people as individuals. But, they acted like complete savages as a group. “Groups can generate a sense of emotional excitement, which can lead to the provocation of behaviors that a person would not typically engage in if alone.” (Examining the Mob Mentality). Under Jack’s rule, the boys’ behavior was appalling.

Sometimes the reminder why I don 't want to read only contemporary fiction comes from unexpected places. And I decidedly don 't want to limit this notion to the so-called 'classics ' - a term that ranges between ambiguous and arbitrary - but also include all those stories which are not as widely known. Because the good ones have something to say to us, even centuries later. The Hare of Inaba is a story about a sneaky hare, gullible crocodiles and cruel human princes that breaks the mould in the way it deals with transgressions. A lot of fairytales, at least in their original forms, tend to be places where layers, nuance and complexity are rarely found.

(Diaz, 144,191) Anyone who didn’t follow order was usually killed, for example on the march to Mexico when Cortes finds out that some of the caciques and papas were secretly betraying him he killed several of them. “Then Cortés told them that the King’s law decreed such treachery should not go unpunished, and they must die for their crime….they received a blow they will remember forever, for we killed many of them, and the promises of their false idols were of no avail.” (Diaz, 199) Cortés’ campaign was fueled by violence and false promises of brotherhood, there was never going to be a bond between Cortés and a bunch of uncivilized people. Cortés wanted power and wealth and he succeeded in doing
It could have been avoided if they decided to leave the Congo during their opportunities to do so if they had a more realistic picture of their situation, however, whether due to optimism or due to ignorance they did not and Ruth May died. Similarly, in McCarthy’s novel there is also the tragic death of a child. Jimmy Blevins, the person that John and Rawlins traveled with, was brutally executed in front of John and Rawlins. This is due to the fact that Blevins murdered a man and stole a horse. This was due to his highly romantic view of justice, and the belief that he could do whatever he wanted.
In Zinn 's book, Nathaniel Bacon is described as a manipulative man, who persuaded the gullible to agree with his ideas and values. The rebellion itself was because Bacon hated both the elite and the indians, and after he was released from prison for being a rebel, he took his 'army ' and began attacking innocent indians. After Bacon had died, Zinn includes the fact that the anti-rebel forces tricked Bacon 's militia into thinking that if they surrendered, the slaves and servants (who made up most of the rebels) would be given freedom. Instead, they took them back to their masters. The governemt strived to stop the rebellion for two reasons: to make a policy to control indians, and to discourage rebellion in the future.
Due to the type of environment that Jackson was in, he was often quoted as not being educated and as being an ignorant individual, but he did gain some experiences that taught him more than a formal education could. At the age of thirteen, Andrew Jackson was confronted with a terrible tragedy: his brother Hugh, who fought with the rebel militia, was killed by British allied forces. This prompted Andrew to join the rebels despite any danger to himself. Although he was not allowed to fight directly with the British for a time, he was allowed to “serve as a scout and courier” (Brands 20). Jackson and his brother Robert did eventually end up fighting the British forces, and Brands retells a momentous account where Jackson refuses to submit to
