Before the vicious acts and insanity jumps in, Macbeth expresses his moral dilemma and how he is extremely confused. He tries to persuade himself that it is unethical and how he probably shouldn’t go through with it yet, Lady Macbeth encourages him otherwise. Even when Macbeth hallucinates a dagger floating towards him, he still shows that he has a conscience and can tell the difference between right and wrong. “There is no such thing:/ It is the bloodied business which informs/ Thus to mine eyes.” Exaggerating how it is murder which he is about to commit that is the catalyst for his
Without a doubt, guilt plays a big role in Macbeth by Shakespeare. It gives motivation for characters to do uncommon things. It forces the character to dwell on the situation and rethink their actions. It removes any and all sense of judgment. While looking at that dark inner feeling that motivates and haunts an individual in reality and even in dreams, guilt, a huge aspect of Shakespeare's writing style will forever shun readers for many centuries to
According to horror novelist, Stephen King, phobic Pressure points are the fears the audiences share of keynote things, like the dark, spiders, and isolation. Early horror films, such as James Whale's, Frankenstein (1931), are posted in remote, European villages, where the secluded forests, and foreign people, adds to the isolation of the spooky castle on the hill. Traditional horror settings, like this, motivate the viewers phobic 'pressure points' by inducing them into the deranged and horrific reality of the characters. The isolation omits the victims out of reach of the authorities, which the edgy audience would hastily bid if danger threatened themselves. This leaves the watchers feeling feeble and without control.
The opportunity to beat fate was too good to pass up. It did not help that his wife felt the same way as well. She facilitated the murder and assured her husband that it was what needed to be done. After Macbeth killed the king, he found himself no longer a true and loyal soldier, on the inside that is. He made sure to put on a façade which would lead the King’s men to believe he was still a respectful and loyal man.
Now that he's aware of the murderous act, his actions become "rather impaitent" and this means that instantaneously he's battling against Goole. Through Priestly's use of hostility in the context of Birling's behaviour, the reader begins to question his dubious acts, and start to discover that there is tension deep routed routed withon the Birling family history, taht they're yet to disciver. Likewise,Priestly symbolises the tension within the family by the stark and interrogating light. The light becomes "white" and excruciatingly bright, and his shows the erecting tension as the play progresses. With the "dark" and cosy lighting at the beginning it juxtaposes to the opposite spectrum and by this the audience becmes aware of this tension that grows within the Birling's as each character finds a snippet of information that they'd rather not hear.
Macbeth of William Shakespeare’s Macbeth will never feel safe on the throne because of his mental instability and excessive pride. Macbeth has suffered major mental degradation that will continue to plague his mind and hinder his mental capacity. Paranoia, indecisiveness and mistrust are three of the main contributing factors of this. Macbeth is always suspicious of other people’s motives, notably right after he kills Duncan, however they were present prior to that as seen here when he inquires, “Will it not be received/When we have marked with blood those sleepy two/Of his own` chamber and used their very daggers,/That they have done ’t?” (I.vii.74-78). He did not believe that this plan would work.
Another example is when Poe uses phrases such as, "It was open-wide, wide open and I grew furious as I gazed upon it". He uses the first person point of view to create a tension between what is recounted and what is not recounted, so that the reader is caught in suspense, having to work out what he can. The use of repetition in first person point of view helps to enhance an uncertain sense; it creates the suspense of not knowing what will happen next, it limits the whole use of the language and the details like a ‘block’ which won’t let you go through, who’d stop you before you realize and discover what will happen
The penultimate scene of this act, is the point where the death of the king is disvoverd and the news is broken. There is panic throughout the house, and this perculiar news creates suspision within Banquo that is was Macbeth. The audience almost feels tension for Macbeth, will he be discoverd of will it stay a secret. They go on a journey with Macbeth during this scene which creates a bond link connection so much so they love to hate Macbeth but feeling to do both consecutivly. He begins to act irrationally, which makes the audience fear for him when they should be hoping that that he get caught red handed.
It represents the efforts Macbeth and Lady Macbeth go through to cover up the crimes they have commited. They imagine that the blood never leaves their hands, and the truth of what they did never escapes their minds. The crime of murder carries a guilt that neither one could discharge. Although Macbeth thought he found happiness as the king, his guilt dug him into an even deeper hole of unhappiness, leading him to kill Banquo, MacDuff’s wife and son, and young Siward as well. The endless guilt causes Lady Macbeth to take her own life and leads Macbeth down a path of arrogance and paranoia until eventually he too was
His mother’s quick marriage to Claudius, his father’s brother, leaves him bitter and disillusioned. In the first act of Hamlet that Hamlet’s state of mind is explored and his quest for the meaning of life begins. The soliloquy “Oh that this too too solid flesh would melt…” is a dramatic technique used by Shakespeare to reveal Hamlet’s true emotions and marks the beginning of Hamlet’s philosophical journey. The dominant imagery used in this soliloquy is one of corruption and disease. His disgust at his mother’s “incestuous” marriage is also revealed in this soliloquy.
