Personal Narrative: The Four Legged Monster

Improved Essays

Their horrible squealing draws everything's attention because it sounds the an incantation to summon the devil from the pits of the underworld. The howling wind joins in trying to make the summoning happening quicker but instead it makes me feel like my ears are going to bleed and starts to cast a sleeping spell on anyone caught in this siren song. The trees become alive to this bewitching tunes as their rodent inhabitants begin to run around trying to attack one another like wolves attacking a deer.

    Ere the bat hath flown / His cloistered flight, ere to black Hecate’s summons / The shard-borne beetle with his drowsy hums / Hath rung night’s yawning peal, there shall be done / A deed of dreadful note,” (95). This quote shows how Macbeth is trying to comfort himself through the use of the logos appeal. His rationale is that Banquo and Fleance can’t live forever, so why not kill them now? He then makes the statement that “Hath rung night’s yawning peal, there shall be done / A deed of dreadful note,” (95), which means that he is going to try to murder Banquo and Fleance. The use of logic helps Macbeth work up the “courage” to kill the two companions.…
