  • 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 ...

    Fear: A Good Thing Or Bad Thing FEAR: A GOOD OR BAD THING? A whole new environment was thrown at the young boy all of a sudden. He had never seen such different people, or so many people altogether. He had reached high school. Before this, he had gone to a small public school, which only consisted of about the number of people in one class in high school, and some classes even surpassed the amount in the entire school. He wasn't sure what to do, where to go; his mind was in a state of blankness. His palms were sweating, along with the rest of his body because of all the beautiful girls he had never seen before; in addition, to make all these matters worse, he was a shy guy. This quiet young ...

    Lady McBeths Personal Insight As I sit here and think back to the past events, I wonder if everything that was done was really necessary. I now realise that it was my own selfishness that drove my husband to the person he has become. I fear him now. I dont know what became of me, maybe it was the excitement of the fact that I was to become queen one day. Why couldnt of I just waited till the day came naturally, instead of causing it to occur quicker than it should of. Oh why did I do this to myself, and my husband. People used to worship him like he was king, he was a hero, but now, like myself they fear him. I have betrayed my people. When he told me of the three weird sisters and of the pr ...

    Macbeth In Shakespeare's Macbeth, one of the reoccurring themes throughout the play was Fair is foul and foul is fair. This is used to explain that people and events may seem either good or bad, but after some inspection, turn out to be the opposite. In my opinion, Nothing is but what is not, is similar to Fair is foul and foul is fair, because it is declaring how things are, in fact, what people believe they are contrary to. First, throughout the play, many people end up being the opposite of how their peers actually perceive them. In the play's opening act, the Thane of Cawdor is discovered as being a leader of the rebel forces after Duncan had previously believed in his loyalty. In act on ...

    Macbeth MacBeth was a play about a power hungry guy that would do anything to have power, including killing people. In the play, his moves and actions were heavily influenced by others. If he had just done his own thing would he have ended up the way he did? Some of the people that had an impact on him were his wife, Lady MacBeth, the witches, and MacDuff. Without the "help" of those people would he have ended up dead? First of and foremost I think the witches, including Hectate, play the biggest role in MacBeths downfall. They almost led him up to killings but not quite. First off they great him by saying, "Thane of Glamis (which he currently is), "Thane of Cawdor" (what he should soon be), ...

    Macbeth The most important emotions that we see in Macbeth are ambition, remorse, and fear. They are significant because they provoke Macbeth to do evil and cruel things. Ambition takes control of him earlier in the play when the witches tell him he is going to be king. After he already has done the deed, killed Duncan, he is remorseful for his actions. Out of fear for himself, Macbeth murdered Macduffs family and killed Banquo. Macbeth is captured by his wild ambition at the opening of the play when he and Banqou meet the three witches. The witches tell Macbeth that he is the Thane of Cawdor, and later will be king. They tell Banquo that his sons will be kings. Instantly Macbeth started to ...

    Macbeth In William Shakespeares Macbeth, the hero evolves tragically from valours minion1 who saved his country from invaders, to a tyrant2, who had children murdered to secure his power. By definition, a tragic hero, such as Macbeth, is ruined by a fatal flaw. It is not the heart of an evil man, but rather political ambition and misplaced confidence, combined with a weakness to manipulation, that fuel this weak characters demise. Initially, Macbeth does not harbour malevolent intentions. He is Bellomas bridegroom3, a war hero viewed most admirably by his comrades and superiors. Loyal Macbeth lays his life on the line for his king and his country, hardly seeming like one who would commit reg ...
