Lady Macbeth

She is ambitious with an unquenchable thirst for achievement and hierarchy. She begins as
being invincible and slyly successful but ends up being reduced to an unconfident,
depressed person that acts in a psychotic manner. She tries to give the impression that
she is brave and unaffected after the slayings of Duncan and Banquo, but as the play goes
on, the more we see Lady Macbeth crumble and grow mentally weaker.

Her attitude towards other people, apart from Macbeth leads them to believe that she is a
reserved and well mannered woman who will stick by her noble partner, no matter what.
However, towards Macbeth her attitude indicates that she is hungry for success and will do
anything for Macbeth to secure the crown.

She can easily fool other people into thinking that among other things; she is fragile and
should be treated with care. This is exhibited when she faints during a scene in which
Macbeth is doing a little too much talking about the murder of Duncan.

"Come you spirits that tend on my mortal thoughts, unsex me here and fill me from crown to
toe full of direst cruelty; make thick my blood, stop the access and passage to
remorse……The affect and it. Come to my woman's breasts and take my milk for gall, you
murdering ministers" (Act 1, Scene 5, Lines 39-47)

There are now a dozen full-length books in English concerning film noir and undoubtedly

    Dominican music and film The Caribbean island nation of the Dominican Republic is little known by most Americans, but America is ever present in the Dominican consciousness. Until Sammy Sosa and Mark McGuire went head to head in the legendary homerun battle of 1998, few Americans were aware of any American-Dominican rivalry in western hemispheric culture. Nothing gave Dominicans more pride than to see Sosa hold Major League Baseballs homerun record, albeit for less than 24 hours before McGuire

    Americanization "If you ask me to name the proudest distinction of Americans, I would choose- because it contains all the others- the fact that they were the people who created the phrase to make money. No other language or nation had ever used these words before; men had always thought of wealth as a static quantity- to be seized, begged, inherited, shared, looted or obtained as a favor. Americans were the first to understand that wealth has to be created." Ayn Rand People have always been inte
