He makes a lot of morally questionable choices that at times, would benefit no one - including himself. He too, becomes slave to the toxicity of society, and ends up losing his love and living an empty lie. He was a man who loved one woman and married another, because it was “the right thing to do”.
it is very common and adds excitement to the story. The conflict of “Ashes” is character vs self. This is because Ashleigh is fighting against herself to do what is morally right or to help her father by stealing for him. When Ashleigh “lifted its lid and stared at her emergency money“ she had to make a decision on whether to make take the money or leave it this and the final outcome is unknown(Pfeffer 4). This moment in the story was crucial in the plot because it starts the climax and when both sides of Ashleigh are fighting the hardest against the other.

Finally, they both take an irrational risk by going behind their parents backing by getting married, knowing the consequences. Adolescent brain development is explaining the way adolescents brains work and develop, “Romeo and Juliet” is just an example of how adolescent brain works and some of the things that it may
He used sarcasm to perfect his work of satire. He quotes, “I loved this work. I would be hard-pressed to recount any event from my personal or professional life that more accurately typified the phrase crazy fun.” (Alford, 999). I think that the author is using a very sarcastic way to say how ridiculously stupid his job is. He is just an extra that has big dreams of becoming a famous Hollywood actor.
Amir goes to great lengths to please his father and be more like him only to discover in the end that they were not so different after all. In summation, the theme of betrayal is relentlessly depicted throughout this novel. Baba sets off a chain of beguilement when he has an affair with his faithful friend’s wife, Sanaubar. Amir exhibits this profane trait when he betrays Hassan in numerous circumstances. Amir turns his back on Hassan when he witnesses his rape and frames Hassan in an attempt to purge himself of the guilt.
It is tested throughout the play, but remains solid. Meanwhile, Claudio jumps ship at the first sign of trouble because of how it might affect his image. Claudio and Don John also sober up the play. While “Much Ado About Nothing” is a comedy, the themes of self-image and reputation make the reader question if it really will end in a marriage or sex, as comedies are wont to
That also causes him to attempt desperate measures and to get Juliet to fake her death. Not only does he lie, but he comes up with an idea rooted in dishonesty that he perpetuates.

The fact that Macbeth had committed treason by killing Duncan fed his paranoia and could only ensure his safety by more action. Macbeth was aware that Banquo could suspect him of committing this crime and could not afford to let him be which lead only to one conclusion, the death of him and his family. In this way Macbeth takes on a more tyrannical view towards those he believes might succeed or even kill him. Gatsby had the money that he needed to win daisy over with al of the lavish parties and having his mansion, and as he uses nick to follow daisy and reconnect with her, Gatsby comes to the realisation that daisy does have someone else and their connection is foreign to him. Gatsby had left for the longest time with the intention of coming back and winning her over with all of the money that he had forged and this fake made up life that he had created for himself, throwing lavish parties and had a no invitation policy among the residents of east and west egg.
Macbeth's lust for power becomes blatantly obvious based upon his fears that "to be thus is nothing, but to be safely thus", prompting him to kill Banquo and make an attempt at his son, Fleance. To relieve himself of his insecurities, he manipulates two murderers to believe than Banquo is their "enemy" and the source of all of their problems, displaying his twisted nature. He does not, before the act is already committed, share news of the "deed of dreadful note" with his "dearest chuck", Lady Macbeth, proving he has made his face a "vizard to [his] heart" not only for the public, but also to his once-cohort. Macbeth's peers' opinion sinks so low that he is often merely referred to as a "tyrant" rather than by his name. He is not only a traitorous and cruel king, but the extent to which he is "unfit to govern" makes him "unfit to live" - deserving of death for how he has let down Scotland.
His decision to steal money and run away is driven by the anxiety his mental disorder brings when he is not surrounded by nice things. He cannot stop his anxiety without satisfying the desire that NPD brings, explaining why he makes this inconsiderate decision. Another way Paul’s actions show his disorder is when he kills himself. Leading up to his choice to take his own life, Paul gets the news that his father, after paying off Paul’s debt, is on the way to get him (Cather 10). Consequently, Paul’s disorder twists his brain so much he cannot bear to live without luxury; therefore, considering suicide is a possible complication of narcissistic personality disorder, he acts in a way that correlates with people diagnosed with NPD (“Narcissistic Personality”).
However, Gene misreads this as a threat and comes to the conclusion that “The deadly rivalry was on both sides after all” (Knowles 54). He comes to this conclusion in an effort to make him feel better about himself due to a lack of confidence. While doing so temporarily rid him of his insecurities it fueled his jealousy and in turn allowing his inner war to thrive. He knew he was not as handsome nor
