Like Thanh, when Charles chooses to act submissive it is for the sake of survival. Consequently, this causes Charles loses his ability to assert his agency and uphold his role as a legal guardian for his underage daughter. The next incident that depicts Charles as the Mad and rational man is when he momentarily desired to shoot Tomas when they went on a hunting trip. However, Charles admitting to Tomas that contemplated on shooting him is what asserts Charles’ madness
Brabantio shook from the sting of betrayal and his mountain of anger. Bitterly, he spouted “Look to her, Moor, if thou hast eyes to see. She has deceived her father, and may thee”. Joy flitted between Othello and Desdemona, but one problem had still remained. Othello would be sent to the front of the war, but Brabantio did not wish to live with his daughter- a suggestion turned down by both Othello and Desdemona.
The response given to Oedipus caused him to go mad and carry on like a child. Teiresias tells Oedipus that he marry his own mother and killed his father. That just threw Oedipus over the edge and started calling Teiresias crazy because he didn’t like the answer. His ego got in the way because Oedipus didn’t believe Teiresias that he was the problem. He wanted the answer that would help him, but instead he blames Teiresias.
When pride goes unchecked it leads to arrogance. When arrogance goes unchecked it leads to problems. In the case of Oedipus it caused a lot of problems. Oedipus is the main character in Sophocles story Oedipus the King. In this story Oedipus struggles with his pride and arrogance and it ultimately leads to his downfall without him realizing it.
From a different view, it is potential that Sister Aloysius attacks Father and he is just wanting to go to another perish because of the friction at St. Nicholas. Sister Aloysius holds a meeting with Mrs. Muller, the boys mother: “It wont end with your son, there will be more if there aren’t already . . . I’m trying to throw him out” (Shanley 49).
Creon’s power often goes to his head. “Let him dream up or carry out great deeds beyond the power of man, we’ll not save these girls,” (Lines 879-880) Creon exclaimed. Him not giving in to his son’s wishes resulted in a bit of an uprising from the people of Thebes. They concurred with Haemon’s desire. Simply letting someone die for burying their brother was not acceptable in their eyes, especially Haemon’s, by virtue of him being in love with Antigone, who committed the “crime.” Creon was so power-hungry that he did not respect how he would react to
So in the end, Oedipus no longer thinks of himself. Thinking of his children 's impending marriage, Oedipus begs for his children and no longer can think of himself as anything more than a creature that embodies what it means to be pathetic: “When you come to the age ripe for marriage, who will he be who will run the risk, children, to take for himself the reproaches that will be banes for my parents and offspring alike? What evil is absent? Your father slew his father; he ploughed his mother, where he himself was sown, and he sired you in the same fount where he himself was sired. Such taunts you will hear, and then who will marry
Oedipus grew up a prince in Corinth, but one day some drunk said “I am not my father’s son” (1.1,860). After this remark, Oedipus went to search for the truth. He first looked at his parents for answers, but unsatisfied with their answers, he went looking for the god Apollo. Apollo wasn’t very helpful, in fact, he brought some more frustrating news to Oedipus. “You are fated to couple with your mother, you will bring a breed of children into the light no man can bear to see- you will kill your father, the one who gave you life” (Sophocles,1.1,73-76).
Rosaline is a Capulet and Romeo is a Montague. If Romeo’s love for Rosaline is not real, he will not be trying to get her to love him because they are from feuding families. Earlier in the same scene, Romeo says that Rosaline makes him crazy, “Bound more than a madman is: / Shut up in prison, kept without my food, / Whipt
The only person who truly loved and cared for him was sent to her death and Creon lost his mind. Eurydice was outspoken because during the time period women had no say so. Eurydice could not show Hamion the amount of attention and love that Antigone did and the fact that she was going to die was going to kill Haimon emotionally therefore he did it himself in a physical sense. I believe that Haimon did not try to kill Creon but he did foreshadow his father being murdered. He meant it in a sense that if Creon kept acting immorally the town`s people were going to come after him and attack him.
