Macbeth is a tragic play involving the loss of many lives, but could also be perceived as a personal disaster of a military hero. Initially, it portrays Macbeth as a noble man who had returned from a war with his best friend, Banquo. He is then rightfully crowned the Thane of Cawdor following the witches’ prophecy. This might have caused him to associate the two events after negotiating with Lady Macbeth about them. When Lady Macbeth informs Macbeth about the plan of murdering Duncan, he refuses to do so as he says “We will proceed no further in this business”.
In 1425 the city had a population of 60,000 and was a self-governed, independent city-state. The only bigger cities in the world were London and Constantinople. Twelve artist guilds that regulated the trades were the basis of Florence's commercial success. The first of Florence’s genius’ was Giotto di Bondone (1266 -1337) who was born in the village of Vespignano near Florence.

So it was with opera, whose first great composer was not Peri or Caccini but Claudio Monteverdi Monteverdi was born in Cremona, in northern Italy, in 1567. Even at an early age Monteverdi showed signs of being an accomplished composer and by 1590 he had entered the service of Vincenzo Gonzaga, Duke of Mantua. Even though this brief insight of Monteverdi’s early life may seem insignificant it was in fact the Gonzagas who commissioned Monteverdi’s first opera La favola d’Orfeo (1607). This work is the earliest opera to still be produced on the modern opera stage. It fuses the characteristics of the experimental recitative opera (founded by the Florentine Camerata) and also appears to be modelled upon L’Euridice, an opera composed in 1600 by Jacopo Peri, due to the similarities in subject and the mixture of styles used.
Therefore, I believe Manon hates her husband. This gives the impression to the reader that Manon is always negative and is harsh towards her husband, making people believe she is not loving towards him. However, the narrator’s restricted viewpoint could lead us to believe that she is biased and unreliable because she is narrating only from her point of view. Also, at the beginning of the games, Manon has a sympathetic tone towards the slaves and feels sorry for them because she says, “I couldn’t watch anymore.” This suggests that Manon feels ashamed of what she is letting her husband do to the slaves and that she feels sadness building up inside of her towards the slaves being treated horrifically. The dynamic verb of “watch” shows to the reader that Manon feels a little bit of pain towards the slaves and that she feels that they are only being used for torture.
He describes the saying as 'The old Lie,' which I think means that he is trying to say that it is a trick. It shows that he wants to open everyone’s eyes and send across a message that the war wasn’t really sweet and beautiful it was revolting and a waste of time. The aim of this poem was to shock the reader-to let them feel the sense of disgust felt by all the soldiers as they witness the soldier's struggle to
He is annoyed at the mistakes she makes and insists that she corrects herself, and says so in a harsh way. Thus we can also say that he is insistent. He oversteps the guidelines of behaviour towards elders, especially when it concerns one of his parents, through this. So he is rude and overbearing. As the story progresses, we find that he is ripped away from basic human qualities- he has no feelings for the underprivileged, or the so-called low class of society, other than contempt and disrespect and down to earth prejudices.
