Macbeth Act 1 Scene 7 *Macbeth opens Act 1 Scene 7 with his soliloquy during the banquet for King Duncan. * He is very anxious about the murder and therefore is portrayed as a loyal character. A line that shows this is, ‘Firstly, I am his kinsman (…and) his host’ * As he is listing reasons why he shouldn’t kill the King as opposed to why he should shows that he is not comfortable with it, so the audience respects him. * This also suggests that if he did commit the murder, he would feel guilty about it. * This is a prime example of situational irony as Macbeth becomes ruthless later in the play.
As the play progresses, it is evident that Macbeth is tempted by the witches and has become evil by the catalyst of their powers. The reader recognizes the mental weakness Macbeth really has even though he has power in ambition. The varying points of view of a play give the author more power for audience to become involved with the actions on stage. For example, Macbeth in one of his soliloquies says whole heartedly, "I am his kinsman and his subject," about the thoughts of killing Duncan only to be later plauged by vision of "thy blade and dudgeons gouts of blood." This first person point of view allows the audience to know Macbeth's thoughts that no other character in the play can.

The first impression the reader gets of Pap is not a good one, one of his first comments towards Huck is “I’ll take to down like a peg before I get done with you,” (19). This passage shows that Pap is not afraid to Huck. Twain is satirizing that threatening to use violence towards children is a tolerable form of getting what a parent wants. Pap then shows his true colors when he “chases [Huck] round the place with a clasp knife… and [says] he would kill [Huck],” (29). In this part of the novel, Twain uses satire to extremes when he satirizes that using violence against a parents own child is acceptable.
