emphasis was placed upon the divine. Christopher Marlowe’s work, Doctor Faustus, demonstrates this new trend in free will as Faustus made his own choices which determined his terrible fate. As a result, the active role of God was limited in the play while the Devil’s presence was emphasized through the will...
From fairest creatures we desire increase,
That thereby beauty's rose might never die,
But as the riper should by time decease,
His tender heir might bear his memory:
But thou contracted to thine own bright eyes,
Feed'st thy light's flame with self-substantial fuel,
Making a famine...
childhood. As children, we are taught what is right and what is wrong, by being given reasons and examples through very simple things.

of Macbeth', Shakespeare purposely used it to reveal Macbeth's true character. It is also used to show how Macbeth is seeking to hide his "disgraceful self" from his eyes and from others. Clothes in the play aren't really clothes; the clothes that are being talked about are statures. Throughout the play...

Despite being law-abiding citizens at one point in time, many often commit immoral acts in...
soliciting/ Cannot be ill, cannot be good… why do I yield to that suggestion/ whose horrid image doth unfix my hair,/ and make my seated heart knock at my ribs/ against the use of nature? Present fears/ are less than horrible imaginings./…” (I. iii. 133-141)

That reflected his individual ambition and lust for power, which destroyed human nature and showed us the essence of anti-humanity caused by the extreme individualism. There exists inner certainty in Macbeth’s tragedy, which is the ambitious desire, the sense of guilty for vicious circle and unfounded persistence...

meanings to his pieces, as we can see in the play Macbeth. As a matter of fact, in this tragedy the audience can find many different types of imagery: plant, animal, sleep, clothing and so forth. Most of these images are associated with a human characteristic; the imagery of light and darkness is no exception...
ambition is the main theme in Macbeth, then there exist differences in the types of ambition people have. Ambition is the desire to want something, for example, power or wealth. Yet, Macbeth and Lady Macbeth show a different side of ambition, the willingness to even plot the murder of King Duncan, and...

MacBeth where murder changed the murderer. And thirdly, I learnt that there is no point to being a leader if it is gained by dishonourable actions. When MacBeth became king of Scotland, he was not respected or liked by his people, because of his less than honourable ascent to kingship.
