    “is Macbeth a Victim of Fate or His Own Ambitious Choices?”

    “Is Macbeth a victim of fate or his own ambitious choices?” Fate, unlike fatalism, does not stipulate that human deliberation and actions are inconsequential in causing an event, as its occurrence is inevitable. Rather it simply states that all events, and the choices leading up to them, are predetermined; hence the role of freewill is no less significant in deciding fated events than it is when considering situations from a non-fated perspective. This concept can

    “of This Time, of That Place” Themes

    I believe the main theme in “Of This Time, Of That Place”, by Lionel Trilling, is the writing and understanding of literature by modern students, and how it differs from those by past ‘old school’ strategies. Trilling demonstrates this by Joseph Howe’s poems being critiqued by Frederic Woolley, the editor of the magazine Life and Letters. In it, Woolley condemns Howe’s works, compared to those of Thomas Wormser, claiming Howe’s works were “insulting” and written
