Ana Patricia Sánchez Calvo Lady Macbeth's Ironical Fate Evil is a deceiving force. It can help you reach your goals but evil's gains are always bitter and two-faced. In Shakespeare's tragedy Macbeth, the character of Lady Macbeth chooses the path of evil to fulfill her unscrupulous ambition; nevertheless, all that evil brings to her is madness and restlessness. Evil is a powerful force throughout the play; it influences the two main characters, Macbeth and Lady Macbeth, to commit heinous crimes in order to achieve power. The idea of evil is presented even at the beginning of the play, since the play starts with witches.
In the title “In This Strange Labyrinth”, the labyrinth is symbolic of love’s maze-like qualities. The speaker describes her predicament by saying, “In this strange Labyrinth how shall I turn/Ways are on all sides” (1-2). A different path on every side surrounds her, and every way seems to be the wrong way. She is confused about which way she should go. Wroth is conveying the theme of love in a decidedly negative way, for according to myth, the Labyrinth was where the Minotaur lived and before it’s demise, death was evident for all visitors of the maze.
Thomas Malory’s Le Morte Darthur and Monty Python and the Holy Grail Professor’s comment: This student uses a feminist approach to shift our value judgment of two works in a surprisingly thought-provoking way. After showing how female seduction in Malory’s story of King Arthur is crucial to the story as a whole, the student follows with an equally serious analysis of Monty Python’s parody of the female seduction motif in what may be the most memorable and hilarious episode of the film. Much of the humor in Monty Python and the Holy Grail derives from the pure absurdity of its characters and situations. King Arthur roams the British countryside on an imaginary horse, evil enemies can only be appeased with offerings of shrubbery, and the knights of the Round Table battle a bloodthirsty killer bunny, to cite just a few examples. The movie contains a great deal of such explicit comedy, but much of its humor works on a more subtle level, plot and dialogue shrewdly satirizing the unjustness of such Arthurian conventions as autocracy, severe social class distinctions, and vainglorious codes of chivalry.
appearance lends horror to the play and reminds all that the higher powers will triumph over mortal evils. The curses of the female royalties add psychological and supernatural forces to drive the character?s actions, thus furthering the plot. Dreams, ghosts, and curses ? these supernatural elements all have a natural place in Richard III, for they weave together the fascinating horror in the storyline and ensure that the tyranny of a mortal man will not reign in the end. WORK CITED Shakespeare, William.

Bronte uses fantasy with Jane's character to underline the distinction between childhood and adulthood. Jane tends to invert adult and children's values in the same way. The fact that Jane is still finds fairy tales scary, infers that she possesses a fanciful, girlish nature. The imagery used when she meets Rochester for the first time gives the reader an insight into her immaturity.
The garden is the last stop in Wonderland, but it is where she is put into the most danger, as the red queen puts her on trial with a sentence of “off with her head!” This situation puts Alice in enough danger that it causes her to realize that she is only dreaming, and to force herself to wake up. This is the last symptom of the nightmare disorder to be shown in the movie. The symptom that the dream becomes disturbing enough to wake Alice up and that when she awakes she can recall her dream. The only thing that is portrayed wrongly in the movie is that when Alice awakes, she should be able to think clearly but instead has trouble with this, as she takes a minute to realize where she is and what is going
In Pan’s Labyrinth, Alice in Wonderland, and The Company of Wolves, the protagonists employ anger to produce a fantasy world that mirrors the injustice of the real world and provides them with control, but ultimately their bodies become susceptible to their minds.

By means of affection, the housekeeper wins Ofelia’s trust and therefore prevents her from opening her mouth to the Captain. Ofelia encounters a Faun in the labyrinth and she becomes found of him.

The connotation of dark as evil is prevalent in many stories throughout the history of western civilization. Fairy tales “emanate from specific struggles to humanize [forces initially perceived to be evil], which have terrorized our minds and communities in concrete ways” (Zipes), and their usually-heroic endings make us forget on a conscious level the lessons they’ve taught us. However, their impact remains on our subconscious views of the world. Because of this, fairly tales often address issues far more serious than one would think to teach to a young reader. The Brothers’ Grimm tale “Ashputtle”, the basis of our modern-day Cinderella archetype, takes advantage of this to address the issue of the continued oppression of women.
