- Imagery In Macbeth
Imagery in Macbeth
In his plays, Shakespeare uses many forms of imagery. Many forms of his imagery are used in his play 'Macbeth,' including the forms of clothing and darkness. Each detail in his imagery, it seems to me, contains an important symbol of the play, and symbols that we must understand if we are to understand either the passage it is in, or the play as a whole.
In 'Macbeth' I think that the imagery of clothing is used to suggest that throughout the play, Macbeth is seekin...

Brave New World and The Giver: Similar yet Different
When one examines the similarities between Brave New World by Aldous Huxley, and The Giver by Lois Lowry, they may be baffled. They may think that Lowry just did a run off of Huxley's highly successful masterpiece. The similarities are extraordinary, but so are their differences. Many aspects of these novels are almost identical while others are completely foreign to each other. Both of these novels feature structure societies...

Death and the King's Horseman: Giving up the Battle
From the Western perspective, it is hard to understand ritual suicide as anything positive or helpful to the living. There almost seems to be no Western equivalent to the "duty" of Elesin in Death and the King's Horseman. However, Wole Soyinka gives us a comparable situation in Jane's description of a captain blowing up a ship to save the people on the shore. It's a moment of hypocrisy on Britain's part, both trying to prevent Ele...
- Invisibility Of The Invisible Man
Invisibility of the Invisible Man
Living in the city, one sees many homeless people. After a while, each person loses any individuality and only becomes “another homeless person.” Without a name or source of identification, every person would look the same. Ignoring that man sitting on the sidewalk and acting as if we had not seen him is the same as pretending that he did not exist. “Invisibility” is what the main character/narrator of Ralph Ellison’s Invisible Man called it when othe...
- Hamlet - Movie Critique
Hamlet - Movie Critique
The movie of Hamlet was an excellent, as far as book-movies go. I believe it was produced with focus, reason, and logic. The characters were also portrayed with a good interpretation. There were several changes to the play compared to the book, although the movie was done in such a way that they were not particularly missed, from the movie's point of view.
Although, from my point of view, after reading the book, there were several somewhat important scenes and ...
- The Supernatural In Macbeth
The Supernatural in Macbeth
In Shakespeare's Macbeth, specific scenes focus the readers' attention to the suspense and involvement of the supernatural. The use of witches, apparitions and ghosts provide important elements in making the play interesting. Examining certain scenes of the play, it can be determined that as supernatural occurrences develop, Macbeth reflects a darker self-image.
Macbeth experiences his first strange encounter of the supernatural when he meets the three witch...

The Scarlet Letter: The Message in the Meteor
The Scarlet Letter is a classic book whose lessons have endured through many generations. It is considered by most to be the masterpiece of Nathaniel Hawthorne. It was a culmination of everything he experienced in his life. He grew up in a household that held fast to Puritan ideals. This affected him in ways he himself may not have even realized. His dislike for the Puritans can be easily observed in this novel. He created this book after st...

A Serialization of the Characters and their Influence on Macbeth
One of the most commonly debated issues concerning morality is the concept of nature versus nurture. Which is more integral to one’s behavior: the inborn qualities or the influences of life on the individual? Mark Twain, in his essay entitled "What Is Man?" describes humankind this way:
Man the machine--man the impersonal engine. Whatsoever a man is, is due to his MAKE, and to the INFLUENCES brought to bear upon it by h...

Love is one of the most powerful forces in the world, and one of the most difficult to describe.

Many people believe that everyone has one true love somewhere in the world, and spend their lives searching for that person. Love is not difficult t...
