“Dancing on Broken Glass” is Ka Hancock’s debut as a fiction writer and I hope that she has more works on the way. This book made me laugh, it made me cry, it made me angry and I also felt like I was really able to connect with the characters. When a person has bipolar disorder they are either type A or type B. Mickey is type A where he bounces back and forth between mania and depression. He is a very eccentric character and there were points when I was glad that I am nothing like him.

Though he is responsible for wicked things, Macbeth is inherently good, but becomes evil in order to achieve his goals. In the beginning of the play, Macbeth is not evil. There are many examples of this. When Macbeth is prophesied by three witches to become the Thane of Cawdor and the King, his pride and ambition are stimulated. After the first part of the prophecy comes true, Macbeth starts to seek the kingship.
Everything discussed in the novel has a specific purpose and furthers the story, although the film adaptation seems to have misinterpreted many scenes. Also, there are some blatant inaccuracies. The most noticeable one is the deletion of Mr. Farraday from the novel, and replacing him with Mr. Lewis in the film. The first person point of view is central to the understanding of Stevens and the complexity of his character, which the film somewhat ruins by making him seem quite simplistic. However, the adaptation did not only deteriorate the character of Stevens, as it also portrays scenes very similar to that of the novel.
If he continued on the ethical path he was on he very well may have rose in rank importance without his stir. So as Lady Macbeth started Macbeth’s wicked ways she has had a substantial affect on his poor decisions and his eventual demise. The wicked witches as well as Lady Macbeth instil a sense of evil desire in Macbeth that was not evident before their
It could be that he has damaged himself so that he is unable to feel empathy for others - or that the evil is innate.

Desdemona’s True Colours People are not always what they seem to be, especially in plays and novels. A character can be portrayed much differently than he or she truly is. The author is in complete control of showing a reader what parts of a character they want them to see. The comedic twist on the two plays Othello and Romeo and Juliet provide a different and interesting view on the main characters of these two tragic plays. Shakespeare chose to water down the character of Desdemona while Ann-Marie McDonald enlightened us on parts of Desdemona’s character that we may have not of picked up on in the original play Othello.
It's like their desire and goal is to push Macbeth into committing evil acts. They do this by convincing him that they can predict fate and future and that their prophecies are true. Macbeth was also very interested in hearing those prophecies himself. What the witches predicted became true, and that is why Macbeth started believing them.
