Of course, the king 's pride clouds his judgment and leads to his utter downfall and cataclysmic realization of his faults. Through his story, it is evident that Creon is the tragic hero of the story Antigone because he exhibits the traits of stature, hamartia, and catharsis. Antigone, Ismene, Haimon, Eurydice, and a strong kingdom all stand tall by Creon as his most prized possessions loving family. Resembling all things in life, these valuables were not easily gained- but can be easily lost. Though he may not know it or appreciate it, Creon has many personal assets in his life which exhibits his ability to lose something.
Early on in the movie Zamperini 's brother convinced him to try running as a way to get him focused, out of trouble and into something positive. Zamperini wanted to quit when it got hard and the voice in his head said You can 't push this hard, you can 't do this. 5. THE IMPORTANCE OF SPORTS FOR YOUTH The
He is powerful and influential, constantly part of a scheme or plan. He is not concerned with honesty as he is willing to deceive Hero to win her heart for Claudio, in which Don Pedro asks, “Was’t not to this end that thou began’st to twist so fine a story?” (Shakespeare 1.1.305-6). He works at keeping the peace even when he is accused of stealing Hero for himself; he simply states that the rumors are false. Even when confronted by Leonato, he again says “nay, do not quarrel with us, good old man”(Shakespeare 5.1.55).
claim1: Believes he is a great leader and gives into his tragic flaw: ambition. Which leads him to commit a series of crime. claim2: he is influenced by people around him claim3: A person with great power who is later taken down General statement: Although Macbeth got influenced by people and mislead by the witches, his ambition of gaining power blinded him, and didn’t let him see straight. All he wanted was power, and he would do everything he could to get it, even if it meant murder.
You mar all with this; Starting.” (V, i, 31-33). Another early example of Situational Irony is the faith that Duncan has on Macbeth. Duncan has all the rights and reason to trust Macbeth because he has done so many great things for him but he never accounted for his most loyal subject to betray him.
He can hold it when he's speaking.’” (Golding 36), which gives everybody a chance to voice themselves and support Ralph voluntarily. This strategy of gradually building a positive reputation prior to giving orders to the boys highlights Ralph’s ability to gain authority, whilst acknowledging that he is not superior to any of the boys. This is in comparison to Jack, who falls prey to the excitement of proving his hunting capabilities to the boys, using it as an excuse to lead the boys, which essentially serves as the cause of the chaos the island falls into. He eventually even destroys the conch, symbolizing his role as a catalyst in the loss of democracy, and thus
Macbeth was forced to go against his moral code, suffering so much from regret to gain his short kingship, but because of his fear of Banqo’s abilities, he is worried that Banqo’s son will be able to easily attain the throne. He remarks on Banqo’s abilities that he “hath the wisdom that doth guide his valor to act in safety.” (58-59) Macbeth knows that Banqo is not so irrational and risky as Macbeth, and that his logical and rational thinking will lead him to not take so many risks while also ensuring his sons kingship. Macbeth risked imprisonment
Alonso Quijano believes that he is a chivalrous knight that goes by the name of Don Quixote. Don Quixote is a courageous man who does things for the good of the people and the king. We, as the audience, can guess that Don Quixote’s personality is one that Alonso probably never had, or maybe a personality he always desired for. Throughout the end of the play, his worried family brings Alonso back to reality, telling him (in a nice way, of course) to get his head out of the
Ranger is introduced to the audience as a very intimidating man that will do anything to get his job done. We know that he is very talented through the author’s direct characterization. “He makes apprehensions other agents only dream about. He gets a little creative sometimes, but hey, that’s the way it is with a genius, right”(33), this quote tells the audience that he is very good at what he does and Stephanie could use his help. Throughout Stephanie’s search for Morelli, she gets into some very dangerous situations and without Ranger, she would have never finished the search.
Pride is formed through personal constant experience of success and accomplishments, but to much pride leads to poor decision making which if not controlled ultimately leads to your demise. In the play “Oedipus the King” Sophocles gives Oedipus a dreadful dynasty predicted by the oracle. Despite Laius’s preparation to kill his son, Oedipus, before his fate was sealed, he survived and later becomes the king of the same city his father ruled over. Over his ruling of the city of Thebes Oedipus gets multiple chances to stop searching for the ugly truth because a man of his stature can not quit the search for the truth. Therefore, Oedipus’ hamartia of pride guides him on the path to meet his everlasting fate.
Humans often love the idea of crime and adventure, but live to mundane of lives to actually experience these thrills. People almost get emotionally involved in the lives of these anti-hero character just for the buzz and pleasure of the dangerous endeavors the characters associate with. For example, Walter White from “Breaking Bad” breaks free from his boring and average life to become the most feared and threatening drug lord of all. People love to watch this show with no notion of wanting to become him, but with every intention of associating with the excitement of his new life. Middle class working men love the idea of becoming someone who is feared and dreaded, but they would never muster up the courage to actually become this person.
His need to win drives him more than love or any other emotion. That drive could be mistaken as detachment from emotions because of how strong it is. It became obvious when he gave up Brigid, Gutman, Cairo and Wilmer to the police in order to save himself, after he had told Gutman he wouldn’t that he has a great self interest. A characteristic that some force of evil may be portrayed as. Spade gives the impression that he thinks he knows everything and owns the world.
The greatest attribute to Hackman’s character is the passion for the game and commitment to the way he believes it should be played. Hoosiers is a movie that stirs emotions in your heart for those of us that feel passion for our profession. The story is more than the final outcome, but is the journey to get there and conquering adversity along the way. As Hackman himself says to his players in the locker room before playing for the championship, “I don’t care what the scoreboard says at the end of the game. In my book, you’re winners!”
He has set standards for all people that wish to be successful and do not want to be “average”. Carnegie has opened my eyes to many different ideas and ways to become the best person that I can. Success is now a goal of mine and I am driven to create a life that I do not need a vacation from. Carnegie said it best when he made this statement, “ People who are unable to motivate themselves must be content with mediocrity, no matter how impressive their other talents.” When I think about this quote it reminds me of another extremely successful man, Arnold Schwarzenegger.
But in this quiet personality, is a lively young playboy communication field. He was tied to his reputation achievement character, until one day his research was successful. He turned into Mr. Hyde, he is like a cage beast. He killed people, but very carefree.
