Macbeth on the other hand cannot sleep and starts to see things. When Macbeth starts acting strange towards people, Lady Macbeth deceives everyone to hind their secret. When Macbeth kills Banquo and Lady Macduff, Macbeth’s guilt starts to go away because the evil and amount of power has taken over him. Lady Macbeth starts to feel guilty and is no longer able to sleep. She fears the dark, meaning she is afraid of evil and what has become of it.
Romeo and Juliet Shakespeare combines love, romance and conflict mixed with murder in Romeo and Juliet in Act 3 Scene 1 which makes this play so dramatic. Shakespeare uses techniques such as dramatic irony, pathetic fallacy and imagery which leave the audience excited and tense throughout the play. I will explain how Act 3 Scene 1 is made so dramatic. Shakespeare uses vivid and powerful imagery to portray a picture in the audience’s mind about where consequences of a grudge could lead. ‘A plague a’ both your houses!’ Shakespeare has used the word plague because plague is a disease that kills people one by one and he used the word to define grudge as something that kills everyone one by one.
Lady Macbeth is constantly ridiculing Macbeth because he is too afraid to kill Duncan, and she even tells him that he might as well be a woman. This is ironic because in this quote, Lady Macbeth says “Yet who would have thought the old man to have had so much blood in him?” (5.1.39), which lets the readers know that she feels guilty. This guilt is what would eventually drive her to madness. Mental madness all due to an attempt to gain and maintain power; power both over their own selves and a run for
Macbeth sees a dagger before him, confusing him about whether or not to kill King Duncan. The porter at the gate is drunk, and pretends to be the porter of Hell Gate, and unknowingly allows Macduff and Lennox into the castle, allowing them to find King Duncan’s corpse. Lady Macbeth sees blood on her hands in her sleep, showing her guilt for her evil deeds. Although the guilt caused by these actions seem like punishment enough, they still endure further consequences. Macbeth is deceived by his ambition, his power, and most of all by his fear.
Module A: Comparison of Texts Individuals challenge the values that permeate time, in a manner that is relevant to their society. This rebellion is evident in William Shakespeare’s play The Taming of the Shrew and Gil Junger’s film 10 Things I Hate About You whereby Katherina and Kat initially disregard the social expectations for women of their context. The composers portray this comparably, using textual integrity so the women’s misunderstood, shrew-like behavior is suited to their culture and society. This in turn, provokes both characters to experience a transformation of self and their values. In The Taming of The Shrew, Katherina challenges the values and themes of courtship and marriage, dismissing the female etiquette when meeting her suitor.
Shakespeare initially exposes the audience to violence in the opening Act, as the “weird sisters” inform us about the existing conflict between England and Scotland. One could argue that the violence is excessive here as a sense of fear is established as the witches insinuate that it is not safe to “meet again” until the “hurly burly’s done”, revealing that even the supernatural “instruments of darkness” are frightened by the conflict. This violent setting is enhanced through the description of Macbeth unseaming a man “from the nave to the chops” in battle. It is ironic however, as the King praises Macbeth for his savage actions, and knights him “Thane of Cawdor”, revealing how only because the gothic protagonist is slaying under the King’s order, he is perceived as heroic. This is a different type of violence to the sort we are exposed to later on in the play, as this violence is legitimized as Macbeth is fighting as part of the king’s army, ultimately maintaining order within society as he is not in attempt to break The Great Chain of Being.
Most of us have had some sort of bad luck before, like putting red in with the whites, locking yourself out of the house or waking up late, and in some cases one bad thing can lead to another… and another. In William Shakespeare’s play Romeo and Juliet it is proven to us how bad luck can lead to two deaths. The play tells the story of two lovers from feuding families who fight to stay together despite a series of bad luck. First Romeo is banished from Verona for killing Juliet’s cousin; secondly Romeo doesn’t receive the letter telling him Juliet is under a potion causing her to look dead which causes Romeo to kill himself, and lastly Juliet wakes up from her potion shortly after Romeo has poisoned himself resulting in Juliet’s suicide. Romeo and Juliet go through a series of unfortunate events which ultimately leads to their deaths.
“And for that offense / immediately we do exile him hence. / I have an interest in your hates proceeding” (3.2.202-204). This also causes problems later on in the play. If Romeo had not stabbed Tybalt he would not have been banished, causing Juliet to be depressed, and want to kill herself. Near the end of the play Romeo decides to kill himself, because he found of that Juliet is “dead.” He goes to the Apothecary to purchase a poison he will drink.

She had now gone mad. Ophelia started to sing to the Queen, (Act IV, scene 5.) She eventually committees suicide while Hamlet has no idea since he is in England.
