During Jazz Age people’s spiritual values, traditions and customs were decaying. Lust had took over them and they could easily betray their spouses, just like Myrtle, Daisy and Tom in Great Gatsby. As myrtle’s sister had mentioned to Nick “neither of them can stand the person they’re married to” (p. 23). She proposed that if no one is happy in their marriage they should get divorce and get into a relationship that would satisfy them, because “you can’t live forever, you can’t live forever” (p. 24). Myrtle also suggested that morality has been long dead inside men and they “will cheat you every time.
Last but not least Ismene. she was Antigone’s sister and “Her partner in Crime” (according to Creon). She was a coward at the beginning for not helping Antigone give her brother his rights like when she said “Antigone, you are mad! What could I possibly do?” and she was scared also because of the law “Bury him! You have just said the new law forbids it.
After this exchange, Danforth began a trial to hold Cory accountable for his response, or lack thereof. Giles knew his reputation would be shattered if he gave up one or more of his friends for his own safety. Cory’s dignity and pride also would not allow him to respond yes or no to an accusation saying he practiced witchcraft. Giles decided not to give the court any satisfaction for his arrest by giving in to the accusations or denying them and hanging for it. Either way he could have answered would have killed him, morally or physically, so he didn’t answer.
Romeo and Juliet have been in the wrong since the day they talked at the Capulet's party. Both households have the knowledge that Prince Escalus is not pleased with the families fighting one another in the streets. However, having an enemy like Tybalt, who is constantly looking for a fight, is challenging. In Document A, it says “Do with their death bury their parents’ strife”, meaning that the only possible way that Romeo and Juliet could escape their parents rage was to take their own lives. If the two families would accept each other instead of fighting, Romeo and Juliet might have had a fair chance at love.

Elizabeth's attempt in maintaining John’s Power caused her and John to both have bad reputations, and resulted in John being out on death row. from this, more chaos in the community is created because of more deaths of significant characters, leaving the town to run with orphans and rotting from lack of order. In the text, Irony is used to really create a lot of the conflicts in the
Come, go, good Juliet. I dare no longer stay.” (4.3.171-172). Consequently, the Friar happens to leave just before Juliet kills herself due to the amount of grief faced, with no consoleing. Friar Lawrence caused this based on his own obsession with his rank in Verona, and not wanting to get caught made him flee before he could comfort Juliet into not killing herself. Thus, making his own self image and his perception from the people of Verona force him to leave, as his ego and need to be of a prestigious rank allowed Juliet to be left alone in the Capulet Crypt, depressed and with a knife.
This leads to him into taking the blame for Myrtle’s death, which he would not have done, if he was not protecting Daisy from the backlash. Which was a foolish mistake, this mistake ultimately leads to his murder, he dies a very sad and disturbing death being shot by Myrtle’s husband George while in his state of grieving. Gatsby also lacks the ability to move forward. This characteristic also does not work to his benefit due to the outcome of his death. Gatsby refuses throughout the novel to see reality, he had so much love and lust in the past, that it just overwhelms his heart and he believes that that is the only place he can be happy, so he constantly tries to relive it.
In hell, Francesca misreads Lancelot and blames her adultery on the book even though it was her fault for not understanding the book by not finishing it. Cavalcante misuses the language by assuming the word held indicates that his son died. Lastly, people on social media sin by saying they are someone, when in reality they are a different person. Manti Teʻo fell victim of this and feels embarrassed for falling in love with a nonexistent person. People should not misuse the language because it exemplifies another form of sin.
She was in a time of need she awoke to her dead husband, but the Friar was there he could have helped her through this time of need. Instead he heard a noise it spooked him and out of selfishness he left her.

The Friar left the two to their fatal fate.
The discontent once again becomes apparent directly before the occurrence of the mortality-inducing car crash that killed Tom’s lover, especially demonstrated with Daisy’s venomous comment to Tom, “‘you’re revolting’”(131). By making this remark, Daisy made indisputably clear the negative sentiments she harbored for her husband. The Buchanan marriage seemed to be crumbling, the romantic facade appeared to finally breaking down to reveal the couple’s incompatibility. Overall, Daisy and Tom’s marriage was a hasty decision that led to both the individuals’ dissatisfaction. Due to her wealth, Daisy especially felt pressured by societal expectations to sacrifice her optimism in order to maintain her position in the Jazz Age hierarchy.
Psalm.16:18 tells us “Pride goes before destruction, and a haughty spirit before a fall.” Johnny should not have gone to the Lytes to claim them as his kin. There are three reasons why Johnny was foolish to go to the Lytes to claim he was there kin. He endured great humiliation, he broke his promise to his mother and suffered great peril. Johnny suffered great humiliation once his silver cup was taken from him, as he was teased by the servants and accused of proposing to Lavinia and especially while he was falsely accused of being a thief. He broke his promise to his mother.
