actions of Aphrodite, which shows that the gods, while divine, do have
restrictions; in this case, it shows the gods cannot interfere with each
other. The gods are sometimes evil and revengeful, though, as can be seen
by what Artemis has to say about Aphrodite: "I'll wait till she loves a
mortal next time, and with this hand - with these unerring arrows I'll

.... waistlines gradually fell to around the hips, as hemlines steadily began to rise. In 1925, the hemlines rose to an unprecedented high -- the bottom of the knee. They stayed there until almost 1929 when they finally plummeted back down to the lower calf.

.... if it wasn't for the recent interference.
Their conversation remains about their love for each other and then they kiss.
It seems as though after the kiss, Hamlet realizes what might be going on and
asks where Polonius is. Hamlet then realizes that he is in the room and
continues his charade of acting mad. I think that this interpretation is the
best one because it reflects my view of this scene as well as what I think
Shakespeare's intentions were.

In other words, clap so that the sails of the boats his friends are riding in

All of what Prospero has said is very nice cute, but the most
interesting part of this monologue is what Shakespeare himself is saying. "Now
that my charms are all o'erthrown, and what strength I have's mine own" means,
now my plays are over, and it's no longer my characters speaking. The
"Island" or stage Shakespeare is on is now "bare" and it is time for "you" the
audience to release Shakespeare an .....

aggressive teenager of fifteen, who is the leader of a four-person gang.
He truly enjoys violence, reveling in the sight of blood or weapons.

it is his very nature, and he could not change it if he wanted to. Despite

Macbeth: The Symbol Of Blood
Words: 879 / Pages: 4
.... bloody man is that?". This is symbolic of
the brave fighter who been injured in a valiant battle for his country. In the
next passage, in which the sergeant says "Which smok'd with bloody execution",
he is referring to Macbeth's braveness in which his sword is covered in the hot
blood of the enemy.
After these few references to honour, the symbol of blood now changes to
show a theme of treachery and treason. Lady Macbeth starts this off when she

she wants to make herself insensitive and remorseless for the deeds which she is

.... slowly as if, "by some instinct" it knows that the speaker doesn't really want to leave. The speaker "lov'd not speed, being made from thee." "Thee" refers to the person the speaker is parting with. The horse is, in a sense, the speaker's heart, reluctant to keep moving, although it must bear his grief.
The speaker, in stanzas 9-12, frequently gets frustrated and tries to force himself on, as shown by the "bloody spur" which indicates repeated use. The groan that the beast makes from the spurring is "more sharp to me[the speaker] than spurring to his[the beast's] side". The more the speaker tries to force himself along, the worse his pain.
