‘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. Shakespeare used this technique; imagery to make act 3 scene 1 exciting and dramatic for the audience because this part of the scene in the whole play, when Mercutio dies which is very significant because Mercutio was Romeo best friend and until now Romeo was calm so after the event we don’t know how Romeo is going react towards Tybalt which increases the tension to the climax because this part of the scene the character Romeo is going to change from calm to violent.

Through this quote one can easily see how editing Twain’s masterpiece would be a queue for editors around the world to go and edit every inappropriate word of a dead writer’s work. Editing Twain’s piece of work would open up new arguments to revise ancient art that people would never change, and even some of Shakespeare’s master pieces. It is simply morally wrong to edit and completely change something without its creator’s permission. Moreover, one can see this reasoning behind the New York Time’s quote, “When ‘Huckleberry Finn’ was published, Mark Twain appended a note on his effort to reproduce ‘painstakingly’ the dialects in the book, including several backwoods dialects and ‘the Missouri negro dialect.’ What makes ‘Huckleberry Finn’ so important in American literature isn’t just the story, it’s the richness, the detail, the unprecedented accuracy of its spoken language. There is no way to ‘clean up’ Twain without doing reparable harm to the truth of his work.” This quote clearly shows if Twain were to be alive and see that his masterpiece was being completely reproduced, he would be infuriated and emotionally hurt.
Of a despised life closed in my breast. By some vile forfeit of untimely death.” (Act 1, Scene 4, 107) In this scene Romeo had a gut feeling that going to this party would cause his “untimely death.” But, because of his stubbornness he had ignored it, and still went to the Capulet (His enemies’) party where he met Juliet. If he had not attended the party, he wouldn’t have met Juliet and he potentially wouldn’t have died. Later in the play, Balthasar (a servant of Romeo) reveals to Romeo that Juliet is dead. “Hast thou no letters to me from the friar?” (Act 5, 1, 51) Romeo was specifically told to wait for Friar Laurence’s letter, but stubborn Romeo, neglects this advice and decides to head to Mantua anyway.
Arthur Miller’s The Crucible is a historical fiction play about one of the biggest events to ever take place in Massachusetts: the Salem Witch Trials. Arthur Miller’s main reason for writing The Crucible was to ridicule the era of McCarthyism, which was when there was a ‘witch hunt’ for communists. During this period, Miller was accused of witchcraft. Knowing that the McCarthy Witch Trials were based entirely on fiction, not factual evidence, Miller wrote the play to parody the McCarthy Era; however, he still wanted his play to be a success (“The Crucible”- Drama for Students).

Shakespeare starts off the soliloquy by using feminine iambic pentameter “Is this a dagger which I see before me” (11 beats). He does this to show Macbeth’s uncertainty and lack of control over his own thought process and actions. Macbeth feels this as he doesn’t want Duncan’s murder on his conscience for the rest of his life. The uncertainty would be clear for the audience to see/hear because the feminine iambic pentameter would make the last word “me” be said in a high pitch and the statement would also be said in a questioning manner. However by the end of the soliloquy, Shakespeare has Macbeth speaking in masculine iambic pentameter to show that Macbeth has persuaded himself to kill Duncan.
Cinthya Carpinteyro August 8, 2012 Macbeth Essay Macbeth had a lust for power and that led him to change from the person he was to evil. Macbeth was a guy who was not sure of what he was doing but let himself be manipulated by the people around him. If Macbeth hadn’t developed a hunger for power, he wouldn’t have ever committed the crimes he did nor made the decisions that led him to take the actions that brought consequences for himself and the other characters. IN the story “Macbeth”, Macbeth is more responsible for the murders because he took advantage of what the witches had told him, he became obsesses with the blood that laid in his hands, and he decided to listen to his wife and prove his manhood. Macbeth takes advantage of what the witches tell him that he decides to get all the people that might stop him from being King out of his way.
With all the things that Friar Lawrence did, none helped the cause with the trouble Romeo had. The Friar had terrible advice he shouldn’t have given to young Romeo. He is a foolish old man who doesn’t know how to just say “No.” One example is that when Romeo came to Friar after crashing the Capulet party and seeing his love, Juliet, he went to Friar and asked him to marry the new couple. Friar agrees to do this act thinking that it would solve the war between the Montagues vs Capluets and this was the first mistake made. This would only make the situation worse once someone in either family would find out.
Prospero utilized this concept not only to deceive others by sound itself, but ultimately deceived himself by the utilization of sound. The opening scene of this work starts with the ship’s workers being subject to the exposure of terrorizing sounds that Prospero has ordered Ariel, his spirit-slave to produce. These deafening sounds such as “storm”, “cry”, “fire and cracks”, “whistle”, and “roaring” (1.1.7). The hysteria inflicted on the mariners by the storm is
