It can be said without question that the Mirabal sisters made extreme sacrifices in the name of social justice. They gave up their time, their energy, their families, their safety, and finally, their lives. But did those sacrifices really make a difference? After all, they were killed before they could see Trujillo’s regime topple. And the sisters arguably did little to impact Trujillo’s reign and his assassination several months after their deaths.
She made a big impact on her society and family. She was the strongest one out of her family but she still had to die. It was for a reason but the community needed her. Her sister was willing to die with her, Haimon died by fighting for her, and she died by letting Creon know what he did to his own family. 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.
Alexander Pope's "Rape of the Locke" is a complex piece of literature that comments on the foolish mindsets of the nobility, notably: the foolishness of placing supreme value on physical beauty. Pope communicates this view in a variety of ways, but it is made most visible when observing language and form. Pope uses concise and intentional naming, structure, and contrasting language to showcase that placing ultimate value on physical beauty leads only to death and despair; this is clearly showcased in canto five lines sixty-one through sixty-four. To begin, it is important to notice the names that Pope assigns in this passage: Dapperwit and Sir Fopling. The name Dapperwit is created through the enjambment of the words dapper and wit.
(Pg. 215) This demonstrates how she was capable of completing a task just to help others when it was causing her pain. Furthermore, Irene’s wish for many years was to be able to be with her family again. She received news that her father died and her family was in danger because of her.

Medea surpassed the regulations by murdering her family and the ones with higher status. Jason degraded his status by not being able to obey the regulations that were placed on him. He was unsuccessful in taking care of his family and understanding his wife and children. It is extremely shocking and unforgivable if a woman took revenge on her husband through murder in a society where women were always looked down upon. But the whole society overlooked Jason’s actions of betraying his own family and blood in secrecy.
In Homer’s, The Odyssey, demonstrates the battle with Odysseus and the suitors he reclaim his significant other and home. Also, in Ovid’s story of Perseus’s battle to acquires a bride in his Metamorphoses. With the two containing similarities, Homer’s illustration of Odysseus’s encounter contradict with Ovid’s explanation of Perseus’s encounter which homer defends the original Greek virtues of the hero, but Ovid revered and imitates these values. Both heroes are put up against weak opponents who do not come close to their skill level and maturity in battle. Perseus’s adversary Phineas, who is a wimp, but he wants to go on with the battle to fight for his marriage to Andromeda.
The grandmother grew in that moment of death more than she ever did in the little parts that we read about her life, and she dies in peace. Her actions may have even changed the Misfit too. At the end, he says “she would have been a good woman if he 'd been there all her life to shoot her.” (366). This line confused me the first time reading it, but the second time around it made more sense.
This scene if considered a major act of cruelty because Beloved does this with the intention of sabotaging his relationship with Sethe.

So, it is fair to say that she has suffered through tragic loss, and unfortunate events that have been far out of her control. Antigone is a character that is trying to find the good in a world that has constantly put her down. By burying one of her few remaining family members, she is attempting to have a positive, lasting effect on the world, something that no one in her family has been able to do. Although Antigone might not have handled her conversation with her sister Ismene well, she does have a reason to be angry because she offers her sister a chance to bury Polyneices with her, so that they can both right something that has been wronged (43-47). Even though Ismene refuses to take part in burying Polyneices, Antigone does the deed alone, and takes full responsibility for her actions.
While Hera offers to make him king and Athena offers him wisdom in war, Aphrodite offers him the most beautiful woman in the world. He picks Aphrodite and she tells him he will receive Helen, the wife of the King of Sparta, for his prize. His kidnapping of this woman begins the Trojan War. Not only are the three goddesses completely selfish and naive in their quest for beauty, but so is Paris. He neglects the moral code of the Romans just because he believes he is entitled to the wife of another man.
F. Scott Fitzgerald uses Tom and Myrtle’s relationship to show how the poor are willing to do anything for money and status, and those of status flaunt their power shamelessly. In the story, Tom is having an affair with Myrtle, the wife of Wilson. “ It’s really his wife that’s keeping them apart. She’s Catholic, and they don’t believe in divorce. Daisy was not a Catholic, and I was a little shocked at the elaborateness of the lie.”
Medea portrays the consequence of a rebellious being’s response to a hostile society through vengeance, passion, and deceitfulness. It also gives the reader a unique perspective on the roles of women that were considered taboo, and still are, at least in the western culture. At the beginning of her relationship with Jason, Medea was strengthen by love to do the unimaginable. Her clever and crafty style were her frequent methods of overcoming obstacles and getting what she wanted. She tricked the daughters of Pelias to boil him alive when he refused to give Jason the throne.
This is an ironic statement as Medea is actually planning to kill her children, a fact which the audience does not yet know about. Jason uses another form of rhetorical stretching, which includes his plea that leaving his wife and children was a ‘wise move’, and that the decision was made with Medea’s best interests at heart, as much an attempt to convince himself as much as the audience. The chorus is quick to point out that ‘You have betrayed your wife and are acting badly.’ The Nurse is our first instance of anagnorisis during the play. Though an ancient Greek audience would well be in tune with the stories in Greek mythology, the Nurse’s role would still have proved important, as she was a tool Euripides used to transport the audience
