Macbeth / The Control of The Witches
[ send me THIS essay ]
In 5 pages, the author argues the thesis that Macbeth in William Shakespeare's 'The Tragedy of Macbeth' is controlled by the witches. The question of whether or not Macbeth is independent in his thinking or whether he is controlled by witches is one that is cause for debate.

Supernatural provided a catalyst for action. It also provided an insight into characters, and magnified the impact of several key scenes in both of the plays. The role of the supernatural was essential in both Hamlet and Macbeth."

The “Real” Macbeth -- Shakespeare and Revisionist History
[ send me THIS essay ]
This 5 page report discusses the fact that the real King Macbeth has been erroneously portrayed through Shakespeare’s dramatic license. While other Shakespearean characters are clearly responsible for their evil actions as portrayed in the dramas, the story of Macbeth actually manipulates the facts of history. However, because Shakespeare’s story does not include actual historical information, it is essential that the dialogue and actions that take place in “Macbeth” be analyzed in the context of the historical information they provide or to which they allude. Such a process allows the reader to gain a better perspective on the political situation in England during Shakespeare’s time, the issues of greatest concern, and Shakespeare’s own willingness to play (pun intended) to the greatest political expediency.

Lady MacBeth Soliloquy
[ send me THIS essay ]
The soliloquy is a narrative tool in the plays of Shakespeare that serve the function of informing the audience about the motives, and ,or, plot lines that are not immediately obvious. It often sets the tone for the scene as well as provides information to other characters on stage. Generally, the soliloquy is not a representation of the inner thoughts of the character. Although this was the case in some instances, the Shakespearean style was more biased toward the former. This 7 page paper examines the fist soliloquy in MacBeth by Lady MacBeth and explores the role it plays in the overall scheme of the play. No additional sources are listed.

Religion in Shakespeare's Macbeth
[ send me THIS essay ]
In 5 pages, the author discusses the use of religion in William Shakespeare's "The Tragedy of Macbeth." Religion is being used less and less in modern literature just as in modern society.

This is particularly true when one examines such classic Shakespearean works as "The Tragedy of Macbeth." Good vs. evil and the concept of freewill are shown in this play.

The Lord and Lady Macbeth - a pair to draw to
[ send me THIS essay ]
(5pp) When we met Macbeth with the witches we hear with him...that "fair is foul and foul is fair" (I i 10). Initially you can brush it off as witch talk of rhymes and bubbles, but then when looking at the characters of both Lord and Lady Macbeth, and the things surrounding them you find that those characterizations are indeed true. Both of them are in the prime of their lives; they are handsome, as the Scots go, and they have attained wealth, success and power, those things that we initially feel will make our lives complete, and for a while they thought too their lives were complete. They were "fair" indeed. Then as we start to see them in action, with each other and with their guests, we know that their fairness covers a foul plot.

Tragedy and the Tragic Hero

Bibliography lists three sources.
Filename: KBtragic.wps

Dark Keys to Shakespearean Conflict
[ send me THIS essay ]
(10 pp) In any tragedy, it is tension or conflict which keeps the play moving. Modern jargon would call it "spin" and "counterspin." In this discussion we will compare the sources of conflict in two plays, Othello and Macbeth. Iago and Lady Macbeth are our major obsessives,the first prompted by an apparent frustration with being passed over in military command, yet disguising a darker personal agenda, and the second, Lady Macbeth with a compulsive need for power and title.

Evil In Shakespeare's Macbeth and Richard III
[ send me THIS essay ]
The tragedies written by Shakespeare often employ the dichotomy of good versus evil as a major conflict. Two of the plays, Macbeth and Richard III, are centered on the criminal activity of the protagonist. Richard III will commit murder, order murder and live a lie of debauchery and evil intent for the purpose of gaining and maintaining power. This 6 page paper explores the representation of evil in these two plays and argues that, in most ways, the evil represented by Shakespeare continues to be recognized and interpreted in the same manner now as then. Murder is against the law and, though the prevalence is increased dramatically, it is still considered the act of an 'evil' or deranged person. Bibliography lists 6 sources.
