As he watches his loved ones get murdered by the creature he created, he realizes that playing God is a dangerous game. One could argue that Victor starts off with these negative traits but then develops Justine’s traits like selflessness, bravery, and acceptance. While I do think he achieves these feelings as he progresses, I believe he only scratches the surface of what it means to truly be selfless or brave. He only develops these qualities because his irresponsible actions cause the death, directly or indirectly, of five people. Yes, he accepts his actions at some point, but he does so because of extreme circumstances.

When Macbeth kills Duncan he says that only “the innocent sleep” and he “hath murdered sleep”. Macbeth feels that he is the true murderer but as seen in Lady Macbeth's tortured state after, it presents compelling evidence for her role in it all.

I led my men straight into a massacre, (Example 2, imagery and inference. The strong wording of this line allows one to infer that Washington is still plagued with guilt from his past mistakes, as well a providing imagery towards the brutality of what happened and how this still effects him.

When the identity of the horseman was revealed, my first reaction was surprised because I realize that Druse kills his own father and I understood why every kinds of war are destructive for family relationships.

Lady Macbeth was a great example of the theme, she displayed herself as a tough women but that was not the truth, she was weak and had no one, which led to her committing suicide.
An Irony is evident in the eighth chapter of The Great Gatsby, due to the unexpected situation, when Wilson kills Gatsby; this episode is Ironic because of multiple reasons; At first readers should have expected instead for Tom to kill him due to the fact that Gatsby was having an affair with Daisy.
