When the two families were at the party Tybalt told his father that he was going to kill Romeo. Tybalt 's father said that Tybalt would not and Tybalt pushed his father and yelled then stormed off. [1.5.53-90] “Patience performance with willful choler meeting/Makes my flesh tremble in their different greeting/ I will withdraw;but this intrusion shall/ Now seeming sweet, convert to bitterest gall.”. This proves the thesis because Tybalt gets mad when his father says that he can not kill Romeo. The king wants peace but Tybalt is blind to this peace.
However, this person that is not to be buried is Polyneices, brother of Antigone. She is so enraged with the fact that her brother will not be granted passage to the gods, she rebels. She fights the law Creon made, standing by the fact that everyone deserves a proper burial. Antigone wins in the end and Polyneices is buried, even at the cost of her own life. Theme If a law is unjust, it is our duty as a people to rebel for the greater good of the community.
The chorus even realizes “the mighty words of the proud are paid in full with the almighty blows of fate and at long last these blows will reach us wisdom” in reference to Creon’s excessive pride (Pg. 128). The third reason Creon illustrates the tragic hero of Antigone is because his son Haemon and the citizens of Thebes disagree with him. Haemon thinks Creon should not “be so single minded, self-involved or assume the world is wrong and [he is] right. By stating this, Haemon shows he believes Creon should take others opinion into account (Pg.95).

Antony wants to cut what Caesar gave to his people, since he does not want to give all of that money and land. However, Anthony earlier had his speech praising Caesar for his will and his goodness. He uses the will to prompt the crowds in his favor, but does not actually follow up on what he says, and does not care about Caesar’s wishes. This shows that Antony’s speech and actions are not actually for Caesar, but for his own arrangements. Antony’s thirst for ultimate power also drives his desire to remove Brutus and Cassius, but does this by swaying the crowds to riot, driving them out of Rome, and causing a disastrous war with many deaths.
Macbeth refuses to take responsibility for all the pain he has caused and he doesn’t want to die without a fight, although this is the finish to all of Macbeths destruction he does not want to kill Macduff “Of all men else I have avoided thee; my soul is too much charged with blood of thine already” this metaphor used is showing how he already has so much blood on his hands, he doesn’t need any more, this can be seen as slight integrity but he still goes on to fight even though its already known of his deeds, “They have tied me to a stake; I cannot fly, but bear like I must fight the course”. It can be argued that his choices in these last scenes were based off integrity but his actions still faced no justice this way, he went into a fight willingly

Additionally, Calvin argues against his dad about how paintings are in color, even if they are old. In response, his dad
He seals Antigone while she is alive, inside a tomb. She does not understand why she is being treated so unjustly for trying to do the right thing. The chorus in the play tries convincing Antigone that justice is behaving in accordance to Creon’s laws but Antigone is stubborn and sustains to her convictions. Even though Antigone ends up dying she dies achieving her goal of wanting to bury her brother properly. Mostly everyone in this play goes against what the main character feels is justly because they want to follow the kings laws and they believe she is acting immorally.
Instead of politely obeying what her father told her to do, she does not listen to him and she thinks he treats her like a child. After Katherine and Bianca bicker about men, Baptista runs in and asks Bianca what has happened. Offended that Baptista did not ask her what happened, Katherine says to him, “Talk not to me. I will go sit and weep Till I can find occasion of revenge” (Taming of the Shrew 2.1.35-36). Katherine continuously wants revenge on her father and sister because they do not listen to her because she lies to them and disobeys

I am going to break his fucking back,” (Klein). Many of the candidates feel the same way about the others and wouldn’t hesitate to attack Stanton. This is seen with Charlie Martin when he states in a debate that Jack Stanton is not moral enough to be president. Rather than focusing on who has the best solutions for the country, they try to drag each other through the dirt. Henry Burton and Olivia Holden refuse to let the Stantons use incriminating information about Picker because it would be immoral and Picker seemed to be not in the race for the fame.
At the tilting and the joust that Merlyn set up, King Pellinore and Sir Grummore were acting childish and not at all like the noblemen they were supposed to be.

Balan says that Wart would make a regular king one day, which foreshadows Wart’s future as King Arthur.
Creon becomes arrogant to admit his own mistake to keep his reputation as a wise prince. However, Machiavelli suggest that “when Prince and Minister are upon this footing they can mutually trust one another; but when the contrary is the case, it will always fare ill with one or other of them” (Machiavelli 63). Due to his hypocrisy and stubbornness, the brave soldiers of the country of Thebes are afraid him to report to him, and his wise subjects refuse to advise him. Creon’s inflexible mind and behavior provoke a clash between him and his subjects which would ultimately lead to his
