The Red Dragon Figure and Other Biblical Echoes in Shakespeare's Macbeth

The Red Dragon Figure and Other Biblical Echoes in Shakespeare's Macbeth

This study focuses on the implicit and explicit biblical echoes in Shakespeare's Macbeth. The explicit echoes are biblical allusions and euphemisms while the implicit one is the figuration of the red dragon, a biblical figure characterized by blind hate, incredible wickedness and the undying will to achieve any aim he sets to achieve by destroying anything that stands as a threat to achieving those aims. Have a wonderful reading encounter.

The Self Before Stronger Existences in Okoro's 'Potter's Wheel' and Okigbo's 'The Passage'

The Self Before Stronger Existences in Okoro's 'Potter's Wheel' and Okigbo's 'The Passage'

This is a comparative study of two poems which shows the unequal existential relationships between stronger existences (Divine beings or phenomena that are threatening to the human subject) and the weaker existences (the human subject). In this study, we also demonstrated the rootedness of the poems in literary tradition by emphasizing the historicity of its language- which is to say that the words of the poems, like literary allusions, open up a field of association within the literary field. We also examined how the order of words in the poems yield interesting interpretations of the existential relationship that holds between the stronger and weaker existences. Have an interesting reading!
