Winnie and The Everlasting Water “ The brave may not live forever, but the cautious never live at all by”-Allison Moulton. In the beginning of the story Winnie runs away to find the forever living Tucks. Later Winnie finds out that the spring water made you immortal. In my opinion, I think Winnie should not have drunk the water because Winnie would have to watch her loved ones die, the population would increase, and Winnie would have to keep the secret to herself forever about the spring water. To begin with, Winnie should have not drunk the water because she would have to watch her loved ones die.

In the play Antigone, written by Sophocles, burial customs of the ancient Greeks play an extensive role. The women of the family perform the burial rites, and believed that if their distinct methods were not followed, the soul is destined to suffer between worlds until the correct rites were performed. Antigone, the sister of Polynices and Eteocles, is aware of this and is not going to stand by and let her brother, Polynices, linger between worlds in pain, after being killed by Eteocles. With her ambition and determination she does the deed, and of doing so she follows the god's laws, but breaks Creon’s laws in the midst of it. Creon is also aware of the burial rites but still decides, through his stubbornness, that Polynices shall not be performed these rites, because of his actions against Thebes.

My heart takes not of everything, feels it too, both the good that the bad—the boy you knew is gone” (XVIII.255-258). The most painful of these words arrives at the end when her son proclaims that the child she raised is not the same anymore. This marks his transition from boyhood to manhood: a transition in which the male perception of female inferiority grows stronger.

Aeschylus uses The Oresteia in order to explore these issues as characters in the play try to determine what it means to be just, what ought a just actor do, and what is the best model for achieving justice. The characters discuss ideas such as vengeance, reciprocity, balance, moderation, and finally the end result of the implied debate leads to a jury system. In this paper I will go over two of the several different interpretations of justice used in the Oresteia and compare and contrast them in order to demonstrate which is the best

The book “Romeo and Juliet” has been considered by many an archetype in literature, developing many different themes during its plot that are claimed to be relevant in the present day. According to many, the story is surrounded by the idea that “Fate” plays the role of the final word causing the numerous mishaps, obstacles, and eventually downfalls of the two main characters. This concept is revisited so frequently in the novel that many morals and life lessons have been derived from the piece including the idea of an inevitable destiny brought upon by a person’s own actions by which the person had no control. Although now held in such high regard due to the idea that these works have somehow become “moral law”, this way of thinking is flawed
