    Lady Macbeth in The Tragedy of Macbeth; the "Iron Butterfly" In William Shakespeare's, The Tragedy of Macbeth, Lady Macbeth is the dominator of the play.

  • Lady Macbeth Is Worse Than Macbeth - 481 words
    LADY MACBETH IS WORSE THAN MACBETH In my view, Lady Macbeth is far worse than Macbeth. Although they both think of murdering King Duncan as soon as they hear the witches' prophecies, Macbeth thinks more about what he may or may not do, whereas Lady Macbeth immediately appeals to evil spirits to give her the strength to kill Duncan. When Macbeth first hears the prophecies, and when the first 2/3 of it comes true, he does think of killing the king, but also, towards the end of Act 1, Scene 3, he thinks that perhaps he doesn't need to do anything to become the king : "If chance will have me king, why, chance may crown me without my stir." On the other hand, Lady Macbeth, on receiving the letter ...

The play is full of images of blood and water, to show the characters' attitudes toward their own guilt at each stage. Both motifs mature and change in their meaning along with the setting and mood of the play. The functions of both are important if the subtleties of the play are to be understood. Blood symbolizes honor, treachery, and guilt. Water symbolizes cleanliness of the soul, as though all it takes is water to wash guilt away. While reading the play, it is noticed that blood comes up repeatedly. This is important to the overall effect of the different usages in ...

  • Did The Women Of Homers Epics Direct The Actions Of Men - 1,304 words
    DID THE WOMEN OF HOMER'S EPICS DIRECT THE ACTIONS OF MEN? Throughout the Common Era, women have been recognized as a strong influence on the actions of men. For example, Eleanor Roosevelt influenced the decisions that Franklin D. Roosevelt made, and in literature, Lady Macbeth urged Macbeth to commit murder.

The Trojan War indirectly began because of Helen, who was kidnapped for her unsurpassed beauty. The Odyssey is an epic about a Greek warrior in the Trojan War whose wanderings around his know ...

  • Fate Are You Sure - 1,091 words
    Fate? Are You Sure? Bob Walker [English-Shakespeare] As one goes through life, many things shape personality and alter the direction one takes in life. These things usually take the form of events that one can look back on and evaluate; one may say, "I knew I wanted to become [a writer, painter, king]...here," or wish one could go back and do it all again. These 'turning points' are very important, and they may result in drastic changes. These changes, however, may be interpreted as fated (that is, predetermined), self-fulfilling (that is, one's actions result in change), or some combination of both. All three interpretations are fleshed out in some detail in the play "Macbeth" by William Sh ...
