Macbeth and Prospero

I have a bad habit of finding these more in depth posts in the morning, when I am at work, and don't have time to properly read them through.  This one is all about Macbeth, the "bloody orgy of death", and The Tempest, the "utter avoidance of death."  Somebody read it and tell me what point it's trying to make :).

Sorry that I didn't give the "prompt" for the essay that I wrote.

"Please discuss the premise that Shakespeare came to a culmination as a playwright in Macbeth and the Tempest. Make sure to discuss plot, character, poetic devices, and theme."

Does that help bring a larger "point" to my piece? I hope so! :-)
