She follows a majority of the steps laid out in Campbell’s, “Hero’s Journey”. This means the text of Antigone could be considered a heroic tale depending on how one looks at what Antigone did and how they abstract the ideas and meanings of the text. What she did went against the best overall affect she could receive; however, it allowed a proper burial which meant her brother was able to get into the afterlife. Polyneices did not receive proper justice, although he acted wrongly against Eteocles he should not be eternally damned by not receiving an afterlife. Martin Luther King Jr acted in such a way that allowed the people he fought for get equal rights and opportunities as those oppressing them.
To both him and I, death means nothing to the one who is dead. Epicurus begins his argument by stating, “For all good and bad consists in sense-experience, and death is the privation of sense experience. Hence, a correct knowledge of the fact that death is nothing to us makes the morality of life a matter of contentment, not by adding a limitless time [to life] but by removing the longing of immortality” (Letter to Menoeceus 124). This suggest death is the suspension of sensation. For something to be good and evil, it needs to be able to be sensed.
When death takes his godson, his godson was “unable to resist and was obligated to follow death” and no matter how the godson tried to escape/trick death “[he] fell forever into the hands of Death”. Because the godson could not control his fate with death, it shows that death is more forceful than all man, even his godson. The book ends with the lesson that death can not be resisted and if death decides to take a person, the person will have no option but to go with death and, pass away. Altogether, Godfather death, the theme of death is applied to teach the simple facts of death. This story is beneficial because it can be used as a tool to teach children about death.
I don’t think we can make or agree with such a strong statement that atheists killed God because everyone has their own views and nobody can really change what other think unless there is some weakness in our own point of view. And I believe that God is perfect and ultimate and not believing in his existence may lead us to quite rocky path and we wouldn’t have any such purpose in life. "If life ends at the grave, then it makes no difference whether one has lived as a Stalin or as a saint. Since one's destiny is ultimately unrelated to one's behavior, you may as well just live as you please" (Craig) in this quote William Craig discusses that when we have no purpose in life and our final destination is grave and that's the end of everything then it makes no difference whether we lived
One of Antigone 's tragic flaws is her loyalty to the gods and, conversely, her disloyalty to King Creon. At the beginning of the play, Creon puts out an order that Antigone 's brother, Polynices, may not be buried because he was a traitor. This is unacceptable to Antigone, and she is determined to honor the gods and give her brother a rightful burial, even if it means being executed for disobeying Creon 's orders. Antigone 's determination to honor the gods and her brother is one of her
Friar Laurence was the biggest contributor of Romeo and Juliet’s death by the fact that his job was to always make the right choice, which he failed at. He failed by marrying the two lovers even though The Capulets told him not too, which led to the Capulet and Montague feud to become even worse. Another way Friar Laurence failed to make the right decision was when he didn’t warn Juliet was alive, which would have led to them both living if he had done
He wants to be remembered for doing unthinkable things, killing the impossible. The gods are seen as such a high power by the Greeks and to give guidance by one is a huge accomplishment. Yet Odysseus still thinks only of fame.

Odysseus shows yet another time throughout his journey that he is willing to risk his life and the life of others to be remembered.

Unlike Titus Andronicus, the violence in this poem is not condemned by anyone as long as said violence serves a higher purpose. Throughout the poem we are told of his unrivaled status as a warrior and a fighter for God. He is said to have … The thing with Samson is that he was too proud and naive and revealed his only weakness to his enemy which caused his downfall.
