“The lovers want to live in union; the death-dealing feud opposes their desire” (Kahn 185) and the play suddenly turns into a tragedy. Thus, the feud plays a crucial role in the dramatic development of the play. Firstly, it is the feud which causes Tybald to kill Mercutio, as “To Tybald, a sword can only mean a challenge to fight, and peace is such a word” (Kahn 174). Furthermore, due to this conflict Romeo murders Tybald in order to take revenge for his friend’s death and in this way according to Paster he bothers the completion of his secret marriage with Juliet
He did not want to bury his own nephew, he wanted to kill Antigone for burying Polyneices, and tried to kill his own brother because the kingdom had a curse on it. He had too much power and needed to calm down and think what he was doing. Antigone knew that this was the right to do and did without being afraid or sorry for it. She was helping Creon, Ismene, and the community, and they did not realize that she was helping them until it was too
“Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.” (Martin Luther King Jr.) Antigone takes the decision to resist Kreon, and insists on burying Polyneices. The act is something that brings her into a sharp conflict between familial duty based on divine law, and the commands of the king (Kreon). Leaving Polyneices unburied means that he becomes part of nature, as vultures and wild dogs will feed on him. “But his brother, Polyneices, the exile, who descended with fire to destroy his fatherland and family gods, to drink our blood and drive us off slaves, will have no ritual, no mourners, will be left unburied so men may see him ripped for food by dogs and vultures.” (Pg. 28).
Ulysses S Grant and Abraham Lincoln could sit next to each other because they both believed in the justice to protect the order of the Union. Lincoln liked Grant for his success in battles which his other generals could not accomplish. Abraham Lincoln would be able to sit next to Harriet Tubman because she was an abolitionist activist who fought for the rights for African Americans and Lincoln wanted them to be free. Harriet Tubman and Fredrick Douglas because they both wanted slavery to abolished and were slave back then. Fredrick Douglas and John Brown could sit next to each other because they both wanted to abolish slavery and they ended up using different methods, but they wanted slaves to be free in the south.
Without slavery the South’s economy wouldn’t survive, and the North wanted to end it because they felt that all men were created equal and having slavery wasn’t fulfilling that idea. They eventually created a compromise (the popular sovereignty), which allowed the people of the state to determine if their state would be a slave state. Basically giving the people the power, as a democracy would, to choose if they wanted to have their state with slavery being acceptable or not acceptable. This was caused by Manifest Destiny. In conclusion Manifest Destiny did indeed have an affect on the tension rising between both the slave and free states.
Abigail was willing to hurt anyone in her way to get what she wanted; to have Elizabeth Proctor dead and John Proctor all to herself. Dimmesdale was only thinking of what was best for him, which was to keep his secret to himself and not get a public punishment for his crime. Both characters first thought in any situation was himself/herself. They were willing to hurt the people the loved in order to save themselves and get what they wanted; a man she loved and to save himself from being publicly humiliated. These two characters both portrayed the characteristic of selfish, and in the end it hurt both of them even
This quotation shows that Malcolm and Donalbain have chosen to flee to England and Ireland respectively because they fear they will be caught in the bloodshed that they anticipate will happen and do not want to die. Malcolm and Donalbain fear for their lives in addition to fearing everyone else because they believe someone wants to kill them. Another character who is primarily driven by fear is Mayella Ewell. In To Kill A Mockingbird, Mayella Ewell is willing to imprison Tom Robinson, who she knows is innocent, of raping her due to being afraid of her father. During the trial, this passage in the book shows the conversation between Atticus Finch and Mayella:“He does tollable, ‘cept when—’ ‘Except when?’ Mayella looked at her father, who was sitting with his chair tipped against the railing.
Wilson’s POV: As I approached Gatsby’s estate, I felt God’s eyes following my every movement, beckoning me to avenge my beloved wife who was ripped away from me. I was going to take her somewhere safe, where she would no longer be pursued by other men, but I failed her, I failed Myrtle. The monster Gatsby may have thought that he could escape from his sins, stealing my wife and then throwing her away like garbage, but God saw everything, and he could not run forever. His inconsiderate actions have angered our Father, who did not approve of such a manipulative man with revolting hauteur. Gatsby lived like a king in his castle, protected by his wealth, and oblivious to the consequences of his actions.
She was outraged when she found out that her brother Polyneices was going to be left to rot and be eaten by animals, because he was a traitor to the city. Antigone believed that her brother deserved a proper burial even though he tried going against the city unlike her other brother Eteocles. She asks Ismene (her sister) to join her in this act of rebellion but Ismene does not want to get in trouble for going against her kings orders so Antigone does it on her own. Creon feels disrespected and punishes Antigone for not following his rules. He seals Antigone while she is alive, inside a tomb.
Eventually, he then acts upon his greed and abandons his morals through the vile words of Lady Macbeth. After the king 's death, Macbeth expresses his hatred towards killing the king "I have no spur/To prick the sides of my intent, but only/Vaulting ambition, which overlaps itself/And falls on the ' other." Specifically, under his new state of power, he was taking extra precautions to prevent anyone from taking his dignity and bloodline. Simultaneously becoming apprehensive of his throne for this purpose he kills Banquo otherwise his descendants will inherit the throne, and the killing of Macduff 's family since Macbeth was suspicious of his downfall might be coming. "Upon my head, they placed a fruitless crown/And put a barren sceptre in my grip,/Thence to be wrenched with an unlineal hand,/No son of mine succeeding."
When your monster is tearing down villages who don 't believe in your cause, she will envision finding the charred remains of her lover 's home. Since your monster opened herself up to the idea of love and it was so furiously ripped from her, she will purge herself into a secluded dark state from which she can never return. Your creation will go to extreme lengths to please the one thing that has constantly been there for them their entire life: you. She will not want to have outside relationships for fear of being stricken vulnerable due to her anguish like she was over her first love. Therefore, you are able to manipulate her thoughts to see you as good and others as bad.
Better even to die free than to live slaves"(62). Frederick Douglass and other social activists choose to stand up to “strike the blow”, as the result they succeeded and different amendments were added to change our society. Also, this speaks out the eager for freedom--there is nothing worse than being unequally treated. “That doesn’t mean we’re against white people, but we sure are against...anything that looks like against us”(132). People have different opinions and when they want to reform, there is always going to be other groups against it.
