Creon did not want to be told how to use his power. Creon tells his son, Haemon, “Fool, adolescent fool! Taken in by a woman!” (Act 3, Scene 3, 605) When Creon tells his son this, he feels powerful that he did not get tricked into letting someone else tell him what to do. However, this choice by Creon led to the downfall of his family and ultimately himself. In conclusion, in Sophocles’ Antigone, the theme of free-will versus fate is emplified by the family curse and Antigone’s goal in the play is to bury her brother, Polynices.

In the short story, “The Scarlet Ibis” written by James Hurst, creates a story about a boy named Doodle who was born with disabilities and his brother makes plans to kill him. In paragraph 5 on the first page of the story, Hurst writes, “It was bad enough having an invalid brother, but having one who possibly was not all there was unbearable, so I began to make plans to kill him by smothering him with a pillow.” This clearly makes readers think that the narrator wants him dead, and the narrator isn’t grateful for what kind of brother he has. This clearly brings up that it was the narrator 's fault that Doodle died. He left Doodle out in the storm on purpose and ran away, the narrator had plans to kill him earlier on in the story, and everyone expected Doodle to die right when he was born. In the beginning of the story, Hurst writes , “Doodle was just about the craziest brother a boy ever had.” “He was born when I was six and was, from the outset, disappointment.
He practically confesses his insanity is all for show because he says so and because he tells his best friend, Horatio, not to worry about him whatsoever.

Before the deadly duel against Laertes, Hamlet decides he should apologize for his actions at Ophelia’s grave and for killing Polonius. “What I have done, That might your nature, honor, and exception Roughly awake, I here proclaim was madness,” he pleads.

Euthyphro’s father and relatives were angry on him for prosecuting his own father, the family members think that it is impious for a son to prosecute father for murder. Explaining piousness to Socrates, Euthyphro argued “The pious is to do what I am doing now, to prosecute the wrongdoer, be it about murder or a temple robbery or anything else, whether the wrongdoer is your father or your mother or anyone else.” He further argued that Zeus is the best and most just of gods and that he bonds his father because he unjustly swallowed his sons and he castrated his father for similar reasons. After these statements, Socrates objection for piousness started, Socrates questioned Euthyphro that there are other pious actions also apart from this one he further added that to his question that any action of ours or another’s is pious and if it is not that it is not. In these chunks of questions Socrates was trying to identify meaning of piousness in the eyes of Euthyphro. It became clearer for Socrates when Euthyphro replied “What is dear to God is pious, what is not is impious.” It was showing that for Euthyphro piousness is related to the

The plausible theory is that Casca gets to Murellus who is already on edge about Caesar because he respected Pompey.
