... "a disloyal traitor". The thane of
Cawdor was greedy, and wanted the throne of England for himself, and as a
result was murdered. But his murder wasn't really disheartening, because
the Thane of Cawdor, deserved his fate. He was leading a battle, in which
many lost their lives, for the sake of greed, and deserved to die because
of his flaw. Duncan was the King of England, and was murdered by MacBeth.
He was murdered, because in order for MacBeth to fulfill his plan and
become king, Duncan would have to die. Duncan's fatal flaw was that he was
too trusting. For example, he thought that none of his friends could
really be enemies. If Duncan was more careful about h ...

Animal Farm: Comparison Between Book And Movie
could be traitors. In the movie since there was no Mollie, you did not even
have a feeling of suspense for what was going to happen later on.
In the book, there was many surprises that shocked me. One of those
surprises was that Napoleon wanted Snowball ousted. Though Napoleon did not like
Snowball, the wasn't really any evidence that he would try to kill Snowball. In
the movie, Napoleon, had a bad image already. He had a mean look and shoved his
way in front when Old Major gave his speech. There was also gloomy music when
they had scenes of him. When the book showed of Napoleon as a bad guy, I was
surprised but I expected it in the movie because the m ...
King Lear: Comedy Or Tragedy?
... and eventually
his death that is instantaneous caused by the suffering and calamity.
There is the feeling of fear in the play as well, that makes men see how
blind they are not knowing when fortune or something else would be on them.
The hero must be of a high status on the chain and the hero also possesses
a tragic flaw that initiates the tragedy. The fall of the hero is not felt
by him alone but creates a chain reaction which affects everything below
him. There must also be the element of chance or accident that influences
some point in the play.
King Lear meets all of these requirements that has been laid out by Bradley
which is the most logical for a def ...
Macbeth: Macbeth A Moral Coward
... When Duncan arrives at Inverness, Macbeth controlled his ambition for the time being and thought very firmly on the plotting of Duncan’s murder. A quote by Lady Macbeth stated "My hands are of your color; but I shame to wear a heart so white". When Lady Macbeth called him a coward, before you knew it, the murder was taking place. After the successful murder of Duncan, Macbeth entered a life of evil. Ambition was also clearly stated when he thought of killing his friend Banquo to protect the kingship. The witches’ predictions sent Macbeth into his own world where he could not be stopped on his way to becoming king.
Macbeth shows his courageousness by overcomi ...

Oedipus does not try to defend his actions. In fact he blames
himself as quoted from the story "Light of the sun, let me look upon you no
more after today! I who first saw you the light bred of a match accursed,

The Witches Are Responsible For What Happens To Macbeth
... Act 4, Scene 1, Macbeth meets again with the witches, who tell him through apparitions, "Macbeth! Macbeth! Macbeth! Beware Macduff. Beware the thane of Fife." In the following scene, we see murderers sent by Macbeth enter Macduff's castle and slaughter both Lady Macduff and her son. The witches are also responsible for this murder, because once again, the witches put ideas in his head.
Although the witches can be held responsible for the murder of King Duncan, Lady Macduff and her son, they cannot be held responsible for the murder of Banquo. The witches only speak of Banquo when Macbeth meets with them for the second time and Act 4, Scene 1, after Banquo has al ...
An Analysis Of A Doll's House
when she finally sees that her life and marriage really are just a good faç

you've only found it pleasant to be in love with me." I a lso think that
Nora perfectly describes what her marriage actually is toward the end of
the play, when she tells Torvald, "…our home has been nothing but a play-
room. I've been your doll-wife here, just as at home I was Papa's doll-
child. And the children have been my dolls in their turn. I liked it when
you came and played with me, just as they liked it when I came and played
with them. That's what our marriage has been Torvald."

Television - In Living Color
were around when television was not. Today's generation was raised
entirely on television! Since the 1940's, television has been an important
part of American life. Television is able to sell products like no other
medium can. This incredible power of television comes from three specific
areas: an inordinate amount of time spent in front of the television,
it's ability to target a specific audience, and it's ability to attack the
viewer on both the auditory and visual field.
The time spent in front of a television continues to grow with each
generation. The number of hours a child spends in front of a television
is rapidly overtaking even the number of h ...
