In the end of the play, Proctor chooses to die rather than sign his confession, ratting out his friends and ruining his good name in the town. He did this to protect the reputation of his children so they won’t have to grow up with a lying father. Lying went against Protctors’ views and that ideal is prevalent throughout the entire play.

Firstly, Friar Laurence married Romeo and Juliet knowing that their families hated each other and that it could end very poorly (Shakespeare 944-45). Friar knew this was a bad idea, but he continued with it and married the two. However, if he did not do this he would never be in trouble and Romeo and Juliet would then have to get married the ordinary way, thus, letting both families know. Next Friar decides to give Juliet a vial which will put her in a death-like state and sends a letter to Romeo about the plan, but it does not get to him (Shakespeare 993-1012). If Friar Laurence did not give Juliet the vial, Romeo would not kill himself because he thinks Juliet is dead.
Addie Bundren is going to die?” to make him accept the fact that their mother will not live for much longer (Faulkner 40). Darl is seen as being atypical because he does not mourn, or pretend to mourn, as the rest of his family does. His words may come off as being a sadistic joke in light of his mother’s ill health, but he actually wishes to tell Jewel here that the situation will not change. Darl’s cognizance of Addie’s death when he is not near her is a sign of his attachment to Addie. He cares for his mother and for his brother.
The tragic flaw that causes the hero’s fall is also a custom to the story of the tragic hero, this is known traditionally as a harmantia. Eddie Carbone’s harmantia lies in his denial to accept his incestuous attraction for his niece Catherine.

If Eddie was able to acknowledge unreasonable desires it is possible that he could have
This anger is from the grudge she’s holding against her father which causes her to want to hide from her father. She wants to rid the memory of her father because she is “sick / of history dragging behind [her]” which goes back to the title of the poem, “Go Forget Your Father” (45). This shows that the speaker prefers to go back to her old morals and not hold a grudge against her father. To end the poem, Che presents the reader with another transition back to a softer tone. She wants to love her father again and let go of the grudge; to do this, the speaker and her father has to “show each other who [they] used to be” (66-67).
Lomia says this to her son Cape after he begs her to come back and live with he and his father, following it up with a comment on her nightmares of being a widow. Disregarding the state of her husband’s health, she cares only about how she will be regarded when she becomes a widow, and so, the only way to save herself is simply to not come back. This showcases the way Lomia consistently puts herself before others, caring only for her own feelings. Perhaps, she is more afraid of the feelings that will come with losing her husband than she is of her status as widow, therefore avoiding the situation in its entirety seems to be the only viable option. Later, in the same conversation, Lomia admits to Cape that she does not feel things; “I want to, I try to feel things -- I hate it in here, in this -- thick -- pitch -- everything I do, I do to get OUT (Thompson, pg.
