This is shown dramatically in Act One Scene One when the feud between the two families is introduced by a big quarrel. The mood, theme and atmosphere are then established. In the end the two families do resolve their differences; however, this is due to the loss of both Romeo and Juliet. The main ways Act One is dramatic is through - the use of a prologue, references to death and fate, the different attitudes to love, contrasts in language and the constantly changing mood and action in Act One Scene Five. The prologue is at the beginning of the play and is arguably one of the most dramatic parts of the play.
Therefore, this essay will give evidence to show that trust is a vital element in Shakespeare’s Macbeth as well as an indispensable motif Shakespeare wants to reveal. Trust in Macbeth is a very important element to push forward the plot development. In other word, trust is an important reason for many deeds of different characters. For example, in Act I Scene VII, after Duncan sleeps in Macbeth’s castle, Macbeth and Lady Macbeth plot to murder the king. There is a long monologue of Macbeth: “… He's here in double trust; First, as I am his kinsman and his subject, Strong both against the deed; then, as his host, Who should against his murderer shut the door, Not bear the knife myself….” —1.7.15-19 Here, Macbeth tells us the double trust of Duncan.
Also his facial expressions are very important. Shakespeare made Macbeth’s character purposely complex to keep the audiences attention. At the beginning of the play Macbeth is loyal and reliable. Macbeth’s true personality is revealed when he lies to Banquo (his oldest and dearest friend) Banquo says ‘I dreamt last night of the three weird sisters’ and Macbeth replies ‘I think not of them’. Here Macbeth has lied because he has been to see the weird sisters earlier in the play.This now tells us that his loyalty is deteriorating as he prepares himself for the murder of King Duncan.

They would play practical jokes on the travelers, and this is what Hal encounters in his play. Many of these connections between all of the characters and Edwards life is a big part of the authorship debate, and it is what Oxfordians like to use when they are arguing over who wrote the works. Because the authorship debate between Edward de Vere, the 17th earl of Oxford, and William Shakespeare has gone on for many years, many arguments have started, and much has been proven. The way Edwards education was far superior to shakespeares, how he had connections to Queen elizabethan, and how his personal life connected to many characters from many plays are all very strong and valid proof that Edward de Vere is is the true author of the works from shakespeare, and not the man who just took credit for unbelievable stories, plays, and many

Although, some characters may be seen more often and some characters may be more important than others, we see robbery and rebellion in several different forms throughout Shakespeare’s work. In the beginning of the play we see rebellion almost immediately. King Henry is in the midst of a conversation with his close friend, Westmoreland, in the discussion he begins to talk about his son Harry: Year, there thout mak’st me sad, and mak’st me sin\In envy that my Lord Northumberland\Should be the father to so blest a son, A son who is the theme of honors tongue […] Whilst I, by looking on the praise of him,\See riot and dishonor stain the brown\Of my young Harry.” (I.i.77-85). The beginning of the play is shocking because the reader hasn’t learned much about Henry’s son. However, it is clear in this passage that Harry is rebelling against his father and dishonoring their name.

The never ending fight between good and evil brings all sorts of dualities to the foreground in the play.
