"Blood Will Have Blood" in Macbeth - Analyzing Macbeths statement "Blood will have blood" in Macbeth by William Shakespeare In Shakespeare's tragedy Macbeth, Macbeth says, "Blood will have blood…," is implying one of the main themes. Along with this quotation, there are many more quotations throughout the story that support the theme of blood. Macbeth has always been known to be a bloody story, but it is proven so much by the numerous quotations dealing with blood and murder. The first well know quotation to come across, dealing with blood, would most likely be agreed upon to be "Will all great Neptune's oceans wash this blood clean from my hand?"

Roman Fever and John Steinbeck's The Chrysanthemums - "Roman Fever" and "The Chrysanthemums"  - A Comparison         The two short stories have different characters, plot and setting and yet they have a common ground in which human beings are deeply involved.  In short, the setting of each work powerfully suggests a rather calm, dull and peaceful mood at a superficial level; however, the main characters are struggling from the uncontrollable passions and exploding desire at heart.  First of all, in "The Chrysanthemums" the Salinas Valley is depicted as somewhat dull, like "a closed pot."  In addition, its geographical setting represents an isolated atmosphere, and, furthermore, Elisa's actions of handling  chrysanthemums can be translated into a static, inactive one.  However, when it comes to her concealed passion, the whole picture in this piece can be interpreted in a different way.  In fact, Elisa is portrayed as "over-eager, over-powerful" in a sharp contrast to the unanimated space in which she lives.  On top of that, Elisa expresses her volition to explore uncharted worlds like the peddler who happens to visit her farm house....   [tags: compare, contrast] 316 words

Failure of Communication in The Chrysanthemums - The Chrysanthemums: The Failure of Communication To begin with, the main protagonist, Elisa Allen is quite interested in growing chrysanthemums.  Given that it is hard to grow the sensitive plant, Elisa's interest seems unusual.  Yet unfortunately her husband, Henry Allen does not understand her mind; his interest is focused not on the point that she likes to grow it but on the possibility of making money with the help of her great inborn skill.  Meanwhile, Elisa confronts a puzzling situation in which a wandering mender visits her house.  At first, Elisa does not pay attention to the mender's suggestion to fix domestic appliances.  In other words, the mender's attempt to communicate with Elisa goes down the drain mainly because she is so absorbed in her chrysanthemums.  But when the mender notices that Elisa is handling that tricky plant, he quickly expresses his interest in it.  At this point, the communication which has been blocked by the wide discrepancy between the two characters begins to flow.  Elisa not only gives her precious chrysanthemum to the nameless guy with eagerness but also she lets him know the information needed to grow them appropriately.  This temporary common ground, or success of communication achieved by the chrysanthemum does not necessarily mean that the authentic understanding is under way between them.  On the contrary, Elisa even knows well that the mender shall dump the plant any time soon.  Then why does Elisa express unusual willingness to give her plant to a total stranger?  It can be assumed that Elisa's eagerness indirectly reveals how long she has failed to relieve her desire to be recognized by others over her unusual hobby.  In addition, it must be noted that Elisa is portrayed as masculine in the earlier stage.  In line with this masculine imagery, Elisa's passion in growing chrysanthemums also reflects her inner desire to dominate and rule over something.  However, Elisa's desire does not match the archetype in the context of society which reinforces feminity ....   [tags: Chrysanthemums Essays] 329 words

Political Review - Political Review Political Review was a play that dealt with some of the American issues that affects the lives of every individual young and old. It dealt with race, politics, the “American Dream”, censors (TV and movies), gender, and just everyday issues that affect us as a society. What made this an American play was that they were all dressed in red, white, and blue and the main character that we saw before every scene was Abraham Lincoln, it was a political view of American society. The play was broken up into different sections and before every scene and actor dressed like Abraham Lincoln would walk with a poster board in his hand, written on this board would be the next issue they were about to discuss....   [tags: Papers] 338 words

Psalm 13 - Psalm 13 I chose Psalm 13 because I could relate to it in many ways. The first thing that comes to mind for me is my Dad always said when you have problems you can always turn to God. I know this wasn’t just his easy way out of answering some of the hard questions as a parent but to let me see that I had my own relationship with God. The meaning and the symbolism is what brought intrigued me.

Infant Baptism and Adult Baptism - According to the bible everyone (adult or child) who recognizes Jesus and his works and try to follow him should be baptized.

Spike Lee - Spike Lee In 1995 I considered Spike Lee's gritty CLOCKERS one of the year's best films; recently I spotted its video in a clearance bin and picked it up. Upon re-viewing, I am struck again by its complexity. It is the first urban drama to depict inner-city race relations with the intricacy such a pervasive cultural issue demands. On the surface it resembles a whodunit, but its main concern is how drugs and violence contaminate entire communities, dramatized in the collapse of one African-American youth's life....   [tags: essays papers] 336 words

"The Second Coming" by William Butler Yeats - From the title of W.B. Yeats poem, "The Second Coming", one might expect to read about the glorious return of Christ to save his followers. However, Yeats portrays a dismal world where anarchy reigns over the innocence of man. The passage portrays a dark and foreboding atmosphere that serves as a warning to what may lie ahead for humankind if we continue on our current path. The poem appears to be written in free verse which adds to the poems references to "things falling apart" and "anarchy loosed upon the world." This lack of structure within the poem helps the reader feel as if they are a part of Yeats' condemned world....   [tags: Poetry Analysis] 292 words
