This disconnect between the two underscores how Sibyl killed Dorians love. This is more of a metaphorical killing of love, but Oscar Wilde shows a more literal meaning behind killing their love. When Henry says “My letter----don’t be frightened----was to tell you that Sibyl Vane is dead” (Dorian Gray, 71) Dorian is shaken about how his drastic actions caused Sybil to kill herself. Doiran quite literally causes the death of the one he loves. Wilde used a direct, sharp statements to emphasise the scale of what happened.
Some things that can’t be backed up with an excuse is the foul treatment of Gertrude, the bad treatment of Ophelia, the delaying of avenge and the final killing of Claudius. According to (doc c), Gertrude is proven guilty by Hamlet after he kills Polonius by accident, thinking Polonius was Claudius. Polonius is murdered directly in sight of Gertrude, and she doesn’t know why the murder took place. Hamlet tells her his reasoning of killing Polonius, and
The biggest thematic concern in this was faith. An example is used when Romeo yells out, “O, I am fortune’s fool!”(3.1.131). This refers specifically to his unluckiness in being forced to kill his new wife’s cousin. It also recalls the sense of fate that hangs over the play. Mercutio’s response to his fate, however, is notable in the ways it differs from Romeo’s response.
And makst me call what I intend to do a murder, which I thought a sacrifice I saw the handkerchief” (Othello IV. ii. 62-66). Othello is angry at losing desdemona, he found out that her handkerchief was were it wasn’t suppose to be at.
To start off, Raskolnikov, who had brutally murdered the two women, feels troubled by his actions as seeds of doubt begin to enter his mind, He begins to rationalize his murder by saying, “The old woman was only an illness…. I was in a hurry to overstep…. I didn’t kill a human being, but a principle! I killed the principle, but I didn’t overstep... And what shows that I am utterly a louse,’ he added, grinding his teeth, ‘is that I am perhaps viler and more loathsome than the louse I killed.”
This is due to Macbeth becoming less and less satisfied with where he stands in life because of his guilt by the way he became king it drags the days along. Macbeth also uses a cold tone that is conveyed when he says “ She should have died hereafter. ”(V, 5 ,17) This allows the audience to see how disconnected Macbeth is because Macbeth feels that everyone is similar and life is now just pulling him along until his fatal fall. Macbeth feels like he will now run out of time just like Lady Macbeth.
This downfall was learning that she messed up when she finally did not want to get sentenced to death instead she wanted to take her own life. This makes her a tragic hero because a tragic hero has a flaw and also a downfall. “ Ah! That voice is like the voice of death”( 1050)! Creon is talking to Antigone in this part of the play and she yells that his voice is like the voice of death.
She was the one who made Macbeth kill Duncan, and it is especially evident right after the murder when she says, “My hands are of your colour, but shame to wear a heart so white” (II ii 61). These lines indicate her mental state once the guilt has somewhat set in for the death she caused. The reference to the colour of her and her husband's’ hands, which are red with blood, are figurative of the blame she shares in Duncan’s murder. The shame of having a white heart highlights her inability to have a clear conscience. Similar language resurfaces when her mental state deteriorates even further, and she finally succumbs to the guilt of her actions.
(126.96.36.199-101) In the gang fight, Bernardo and Riff were ultimately killed. Bernardo, Maria’s brother, was killed by her lover. Afterwards, she was much more bitter towards her partner, as she was close to her brother and unsure whether to forgive Tony or to leave him. She forgave him in the end, leading to one last punishment, seemingly from fate, as one last death would destroy both of the females in these storylines.
As seen through the murder of Oedipus’s father, he gives in to anger and kills the ‘stranger’. As the king of Thebes, he proclaims harsh punishment to the one who killed Laius and does not seem to be able to put two and two together to see his error. In comparison, Aristotle and Sophocles’s ideal hero comes from the superego and is represented by Theseus. While Theseus thrives and accepts the broken Oedipus, Oedipus would have shunned the killer of Laius (and did through asking Kreon to banish him). The id part of Oedipus’s unconscious directed his fate and, as a result, his
His wrong decisions lead him to regret. his pride makes him blind after when he decide to kill Antigone because she buried her brother. and then became the most tragedy story ever. The major error in judgment that Creon makes is his decision to give Eteocles a proper burial and not Polyneices.
Creon using his own form of divine justification explains,”…you are saying what is intolerable, when you say that Divinities have providential concern for this corpse…this fellow who Came to burn the temples girded with columns…(282,286). It becomes evident in these lines that Creon believes that it’s only natural to punish the wicked for their part in harming Thebes. However, Creon’s biggest weakness comes from openly defying both the family bond and set of divine laws that govern the deceased. He “acts pitilessly towards Polyneices’ already grieving relatives by further inflaming their grief”(Ahrensdorf and Pangle 144). Creon goes into conflict with the pious rules set forth by the Gods in response to death.
In epic Greek poems, gods have a major influence in the overall storyline and the Odyssey is no exception. The gods and goddesses constantly are appearing sometimes in a disguised form, but all nonetheless crafting the scenes to their accord so that they may offer gratitude for the mortal’s loyalty or to gain revenge for their disloyalty. Not only do they alter events, but people also alter their actions while keeping the appeasement of gods in mind. By paying respect to the gods, the characters express much more than a simple gesture of reverence; instead, it is also a way of showing compassion for something other than themselves. Odysseus strategically exploits his devotion to the gods in various scenes in a way to improve his own character
