Especially within both the World Wars, figures such as Archduke Ferdinand, Chamberlain, Hitler, Winston, Stalin, and the League of Nations, to name a few, have gone through their respective struggles as they deal with persecution and salvation.

Archduke Franz Ferdinand, the prince of Austria before his untimely death, was shot and killed on the day of June 28th, 1914, his wedding anniversary. (“Archduke Franz Ferdinand Assassinated”, 2014) It was because of the disapproval of his wife, who was not technically royal, that brought about his doom.

Odysseus and his men travel from Troy back to Ithaca stopping at different islands along the way, running into strange monsters like the cyclops Polyphemus and angering the gods. When he assuredly returns to Ithaca, without his men, he has to fight and defeat the suitors who are trying to marry his wife Penelope. Odysseus’ men had a hard time returning back to their normal way of living when they stopped on the island of Ismarus. When they made it to the island they “...killed the men who fought. Plunder...” and “..enslaved the women…”(Homer lines 43-45).
Furthermore, Beowulf’s death and the downfall of his people highlight the destruction caused by excessive pride.

His self-centered desire to gain and maintain fame and glory overrides his duties as a leader of his people, the Geats, and causes him to become irrational. He irrationally decides to battle with the dragon that was causing mayhem in his kingdom alone.

Then, Beowulf gathers up enough strength to inflict a deadly stab to the dragon’s stomach. The text dictates: “They had killed the enemy, courage quelled his life; / that pair of kinsmen, partners in nobility, / had destroyed the foe. So every man should act, / be at hand when needed; but now, for the king, / this would be the last of many labors / and triumphs in the world” (2706-2711). With this statement in mind, it is indisputable that the symbolization of this onslaught consists of how no one can ever gain immortality; even the finest people must meet their end. To reemphasize, it is clear to see that Beowulf’s last and final dispute holds the utmost preponderance due to the fact that the dragon is able to kill him at

Apollo charged until Earth had become almost desolate.
