¨He had no patience with unsuccessful men, He had no patience with his father¨(Achebe Pg. #4). Okonkwo does not tolerate men who had no title or who were lazy, including his father. He was so unsympathetic and full of his own priorities that he had no patience for his own father. This shows that he has no sympathy for people who are considered less of him.
Desdemona’s father states that he should kill her for her disloyalty from getting married without his permission. The secret marriage deeply wounds her father to the point that he has the right to kill her. She is sacrificing her life for her love of Othello; the implications of this show how deep the love of the two love birds runs. Even though her betrayal is unforgivable, her father decides that her death would be undesirable blood on his hands, therefore, Desdemona’s act of secrecy taints her image with a seed of doubt. By gaining Othello’s love, Desdemona loses the love of her father and ruins her credibility in his eyes, which causes him to cast her out and exile her from their home.
Troy states that his father was greedy and would put his own personal needs above the needs of the family. This, in turn, caused Troy 's mother to abandon him, leaving him without love from a parent or anyone to show him the correct way to treat females, a sin that affects his relationship with Rose as an adult. His father 's treatment of Troy made Troy believe there was more to his suffering than what was humanly possible "The gal jumped and run off...and when my daddy turned to face me, I could see why the devil had never come to get him...cause he was the devil himself"(Wilson 52).This metaphor used by Troy, adds a certain weight to the gravity of his situation as a teen. His father wasn 't just cruel but was the devil, a symbol of pure hate and all evil. The way Troy 's father treated him would cause Troy to run away at a young age and would be forced to steal and rob.
Dionysus, the product of an illicit affair, is immature, fragile, and so power hungry that he lacks any wisdom a typical God would have. He is foolish and angry about his true nature and where he comes from. He lashes out on Pentheus to subdue his embarrassment. Dionysus drives all the women of Thebes mad and running to the mountainside, seemingly unaware that these are his mother, Semele’s, sisters. Who is his reprisal really meant for?
This is clearly seen in page 27 of Things Fall Apart when Okonkwo, the main character, is filled with rage when he finds out one of his wives has left his children unattended but and left him without a meal. After the wife returned, “he beat her very heavily,” proving that men had absolutely no respect for women (Achebe 29). Just like the Igbo women were treated poorly because of the lack of human decency that men had towards them, disabled people also face injustices because of
The spoiled little boy hates his father and ends up running away taking all of Siddhartha and Vasudeva’s money. Before leaving he states, "You want me to become like you, so pious, so gentle, so wise, but just to spite you, I would rather become a thief and a murderer and go to hell, than be like you. I hate you; you are not my father even if you have been my mother 's lover a dozen times!" (100). Siddhartha takes this as a way of payback, he had left his father to die alone and now feels as though he deserves this.
'Hatred is blind and anger deaf: the one who pours himself a cup of vengeance is likely to drink bitter draught ' (569). Later in the novel, Villefort commands his wife to commit suicide because she is dishonorable. The same self-justice he hates caused his wife and son to commit suicide. He realizes he has no room to judge after this action. Simply put, the audience learns only God can judge
