A gentle pitter-patter of rainfall could be heard throughout the darkened room as the fresh aroma of moistened greenery seeped in through the open window. There was a small puddle of water on the wood-paneled floor as the mist continued, but it failed to be noticed. There was only one occupant in this room, a young woman at the pinnacle of her youth. She was dressed in her usual casual attire: a fitted shirt and flowing skirt. She also wore a tattered and oversized jacket which she clutched

Before partaking in the act of taking this walk, it is necessary to look ahead to the f

    William Shakespeare's Macbeth In a practical sense, we are able to see more clearly in daylight, and so we are also less fearful. When night comes, our sense of sight is restricted and we are less able to deal with the unexpected. Also, in Western culture we have come to associate dark with evil and light with goodness. So Shakespeare uses this as one of his major images to enhance the horror of the evil deeds carried out by the Macbeths. Duncan is killed at night. Banquo is murdered as he rides out into the twilight, just before the banquet. Repeatedly Shakespeare makes

The earliest humans grew in Africa, and much of human evolution occurred on that continent. The fossils of early humans who lived between 6 million and 2 million years ago come entirely from Africa.
