Why We Are Drawn to the Characters of Macbeth and Lady Macbeth - I believe that despite our better instincts, we are drawn to the characters of Macbeth and Lady Macbeth, in the play by William Shakespeare Macbeth, because they are very fascinating characters. Both of them are essentially murderers, and in Macbeth’s case he is literally a murderer. However we still find them interesting and we pay more attention to the inner workings of their minds, even though the “moral” thing to do would be to shun their characters and treat them as inferior.

Characters and Values - Characters tend to take to their values very strongly. A character will do anything possible to stand behind what they value. Authors use this to invoke a strong feeling in the reader, and make the plot more meaningful.

A poem that does this is “1910”, by Pat Mora, and a oral history that is an example is “Tsali of the Cherokees”, by Alice Marriot. In “1910”, symbolism is used to represent the character’s values....   [tags: essays research papers] 513 words
