Hark!-I laid their daggers ready; He could not miss em. Had he not resembled my father as he slept, I had done’t” (2.2. 13-17). Lady Macbeth has such strong determination to kill Duncan, that she will kill him in his sleep, even if that may make her seem weak and gutless.When Lady Macbeth says “Alack, I am afraid they have not awakened, and tis not done”, she is saying that she is worried Duncan has woken - and they have not had a chance to kill him yet. By saying this, Lady Macbeth shows she is determined to kill Duncan in his sleep, and if it didn’t happen, her plans would be ruined.
She is also visible in Transylvania 's nature – threatening but at the same time enchanting its visitors. Monstrous-femininity is marginalised throughout Stoker 's novel. Neither the female vampires nor Dracula get a voice. Moreover, the story focuses on the modern England rather than on the effeminate East. The monstrous-feminine constantly walks the line between terror and horror but ultimately horror overtakes and forces the male novel 's heroes to kill the monster.
Bukatman discusses how cyberspace creates a type of blind spot for the people that inhabit it. The power that machines have to shape identities in cyberspace seems to stem from the fact that humans can never completely control their experience. Bukatman explains that the “interface relocates the human, in fact redefines the human as part of a cybernetic system” (152). In this way, machines are capable of defining humans and also able manipulate them as well. This is especially important when considering how powerful Wintermute and Neuromancer become, as Wintermute is cold and calculating, with a “hive mind” while Neuromancer has a “personality” (Gibson, 269).
We are able to portray ourselves as the monster, letting us have some sort of psychic relief. Klosterman gives an example with horror as to how our society is turning. He believes we are becoming just like zombies doing the same repetitive stuff. Our society has become so attached to their electronics, social media accounts, and technology that we have become so unaware of our surroundings. We don 't seem to ever get a break from the internet, that 's why we don’t even realize that it is destroying us.
She could just be a very evil person who only wants to murder and manipulate people. However, Lady Macbeth reveals evidence that this is not the case about her. Lady Macbeth begins to sleepwalk and speak about the murders she has been a part of. “Attack, I am afraid, they have awoke. And tis not done.” Here she reveals her guilt about the murder of King Duncan and how he resembled her father.
This quote proves that she plans on pinning the murder of Duncan on the guards and convinces Macbeth that he’ll feel no quilt protecting him from the consequences of guilt. Similarly, Annalise pins the murder of her husband on another person to protect her students from the feeling of guilt and the consequences of their actions. Lady Macbeth and Annalise also care for the people they are trying to protect. Lady Macbeth cares for Macbeth by helping Macbeth fulfill his prophecies given to him by the witches as well as helping him when he was having hallucinations of Banquo by saying “This is the very painting of your fear” (3.4. 61).
They mock him, taunting him about how far he has fallen. He responds in anger, wanting to hear more prophecies. He obviously feels more entitled now, and his ambition has thoroughly succeeded in corrupting him to the point of no return. He is now king; his friend (though, in his eyes as of late, his enemy,) Banquo, is dead and out of the way; and he is on a mission to kill any others who stand in his way and jeopardize his crown. The witches inform him that none of women born will kill him, but Macbeth still insists that he will kill not only Macduff, but his entire family and staff, just to be on the safe side of things.
One theme that is present in Macbeth is ambition. This theme becomes evident when the witches give the prophecies to the Macbeths and they do everything they can in order to fulfill their desires. The first account of when Macbeth allows his ambition to overwhelm him is when he kills Duncan. In ActⅠScene ⅶ, Macbeth is contemplating whether or not to kill the king by listing out the reasons against and he discovers that ambition is his only motivation to kill. He says “I have no spur / To prick the sides of my intent, but only / Vaulting ambition which o’erleaps itself / And falls on th’other”(ActⅠScene ⅶ) Macbeth has enough self-awareness to realize the dangers of killing the king yet his temptation to complete the prophecy is too strong.
Abigail lists off people to Reverend Hale a specialist in demonology that she’s supposedly seen dancing with “the devil” Abigail is also one of the jury in the courthouse. She has manipulated the courthouse to her will and as a result many people have been sentenced to death. Abigail has been corrupted through her affair with John Proctor and through her ambition in trying to get Elizabeth out of the picture. She no longer cares about who gets hurt so long as she gets her
supernatural. Hitchcock’s manipulation of reality already included the use of special effects, character development or lack thereof, and hiding truths, but by using supernatural aspects it allowed the ending of the story to be played out in a very specific way. When Scottie was first introduced to the job Gavin offers him, he was told that Madeleine was possessed by a spirit. The reason being was so Gavin’s elaborate plan of killing his wife had a reason to end with her suicide. Although this was the direct reason for the use of ghosts I also think it was used so the audience realises that supernatural ideas are going to be used in the film, and this was a way to ease into it without it being cheesy.
