Okonkwo’s irrational decision - making, as well as his fear of being perceived as weak like his father drove him to kill Ikemefuna. If Ikemefuna has not been killed, then this would have prevented Nwoye from converting to Christianity. As seen “after the missionaries finished singing, Nwoye pondered about what he just heard, the hymn about brothers who sat in darkness and fear seemed to answer a vague and persistent question that haunted his young soul the question of Ikemefuna who died” (Achebe 128).

The flaws in the death penalty make the act even more horrible. Throughout the history of the death penalty, one can see it as a scream for justice, even though it is morally wrong as humans to play are playing God to one another. A society that is against killing and respects life should not purposefully kill another human being. Societal expectations are that one must have the correct morals intact that fit the norms of society. Regardless of these expectations, the government still denies that, ”An execution is a violent public spectacle of official homicide, and one that endorses killing to solve social problems” (ACLU).

In the final confrontation between Claudius, Laertes and Hamlet their colliding motives leads to the death of each person.
A Heroic Satan (An Analysis of Satan’s Behavior and Heroic Elements in Milton’s, Paradise Lost) If Milton’s, Paradise Lost is an epic, then who is the epic hero? This is a question addressed by manys scholars throughout their engagement of study in this piece of literature.
