Macbeth is physically strong and competent, however his weak character causes him to lose his grip over guilt and his insecurities. When he becomes crowned thane of Cawdor just as the prophecies had said, the thought of murdering Duncan crossed Macbeth’s mind, and he starts to seriously consider it. However, during this period, Macbeth reveals his inner turmoil and moral dilemma in his soliloquies. (kinsman, host, and Duncan hath born his faculties so meek, act 1 sc 7) Lady Macbeth knows that Macbeth is too “full o’ th’ milk of human kindness”, so she challenges his manhood by calling him a coward, knowing that Macbeth will in turn, show that he is not a coward by accepting to murder Duncan. This shows that his ambition and self-image of bravery wins over his virtues.
She plans the murder with ease, and shows very little remorse for her actions. This can be see when Macbeth says "I Am Thane of Cawdor: If good, why do I yield to that [thought of killing Duncan] whose Horrid image doth unfix my hair and make my seated heart knock at my ribs, against the use of nature?" This again shows how Macbeth is unwilling to commit the crime. On the other hand, Lady Macbeth is, going so far as to call her husband a woman, and to call him weak in order to get him to do the task. The second difference between Macbeth and his wife is the way that they view the prophecy made by the witches.
This is ironic as the scene is not joyful. It will not be a joyful time for Juliet but the complete opposite. Every time the scene uses the word, ‘joyful’ or ‘joy’ irony is present because the situation is everything but joyful. When Lady Capulet swears to ‘have vengeance’ for Tybalt’s death and send a man to Mantua to poison Romeo, Juliet replies, “Indeed I never shall be satisfied, With Romeo, till I behold him- dead- Is my poor heart, So for a kinsman vexed.” This quote has a double meaning as it signifies two completely different things. Lady Capulet misinterprets Juliet’s reply.
She didn’t get any benefits from Duncan’s death, and felt nothing but sorry for her actions. Macbeth kept returning to the actual murder, his source of guilt, yet he received many benefits from Duncan’s death. He became king and received the admiration of Scotland. When he returned to the murder, he felt guilty, but the benefits he reaped outweighed the psychological guilt. The remorse Macbeth felt was for the physical action of killing Duncan, while Lady Macbeth’s was felt on a deeper level, regretting instilling the murder plan that started everything.
They see that their own hate for one another has ended with the death of the ones they love most, and that they cannot let this continue. This makes us think about real life situations where fighting and war can bring innocent people to their death, although they have done nothing wrong, and only want to live a peaceful live with the ones they love. The strong love between Romeo and Juliet contrasts substantially with the hate that fills Verona. Both love and hate are senseless and mysterious. The involved parties focus solely on that attribute, and therefore consequences are ignored, and thus lives can be lost.
From the start of the play Hamlet mourns his father’s death and is in stasis. By the end of the last soliloquy, Hamlet takes a major step forward in his psyche and willingness to initiate action. The first soliloquy takes place in Act 1, Scene II, in which Hamlet discusses his remorse towards life. Hamlet wishes that his “too solid flesh would melt” (I.ii.133) and that if he was not restrained by God s laws, he would commit suicide. Though saddened by his father’s untimely death, Prince Hamlet also expresses clear disgust for his mother, Gertrude, for marrying his uncle, Claudius, only a few months after his own father’s death.
Shakespeare uses these words to tell us what the grudge actually is, which are not important at all, just a useless, pointless argument. By adding this in the audience feels even more sorry for Romeo and Juliet as their not allowed to be together over something as pointless as this. The prologues speaks about how the couples lives end in a tragic death whereas if their families forgot about the feud they would still be alive and well, happily with one another. Every ones lives would have been so much better. In act one scene one Shakespeare introduces what negative effect love can have.
Macbeth is scared by the blood of Duncan. However, the blood may not be seen by others since it is only figurative. It is the eternal reminder to those characters of the terrible sin that they have committed. This symbol functions as a figurative tattoo that may not be removed from the hands. It drives Lady Macbeth to insanity that will eventually bring her to her collapse.
This shows that Macbeth once again was filled with guilt but again his wife contradicted him and led him down the path of evil. This is the example of the relationship at opposite ends. Macbeth wanted to do the greater good and Lady Macbeth wanted to do the most evil. Evil prevails and it shows a sense of death and darkness through the couple. Macbeth and Lady Macbeth are also on the same page
She is sad because of Hamlet is mad. she is also so dutiful. Because when his father and his brother know she and Hamlet together. Her brother tell her Hamlet is not good and Hamlet will hurt her and tell her" Perhaps he loves you now. And now no soil nor cautel doth besmirch the virtue of his will" "he may not, as unvalu'd persons do, crave for himself, for on his choice depends the safety and the health of the whole state".
