  • Imagery Of Darkness
    580 words
    In his plays, Shakespeare uses many forms of imagery. Many forms of his imagery are used in his play 'Macbeth,' including the forms of clothing and darkness. Each detail in his imagery, it seems to me, contains an important symbol of the play, and symbols that we must understand if we are to understand either the passage it is in, or the play as a whole. In 'Macbeth' I think that the imagery of clothing is used to suggest that throughout the play, Macbeth is seeking to hide his 'disgraceful self...

  • Used In Our Medieval And Dark Ages
    1,339 words
    JRR Tolkien's The Hobbit and Lord of the Rings have inspired me to study the world he has created. One of the aspects that is of great interest to me is the armor and weapons used by the warriors and armies of Middle. In many ways Tolkien has modeled his books after our own ancient world. Particularly the Dark and Medieval ages. Obviously Middle Earth cannot be exactly equated to any period of our own world, but in a broad sense it is like our Dark and Medieval ages. The all of the weapons and a...
