He wanted to see this American Dream so badly, that he looked at this all the wrong way. He strives to be successful, even if that means to be miserable and look away from reality. He doesn’t see the wrong in him but can see it in others and points out all the wrong in them. He imagines this high class man when all he is is a “common man”. With him not recognizing all his flaws even when he was reaching his deathbed, he still couldn’t see his wrongdoings and that is what lead him to his ultimate downfall.
He did not realize his flaws like arrogance, having a bad temper, and selfishness. Once Tiresias gets it through Oedipus’s thick skull that he was the one who killed King Laius, he takes one of the brooches from Jocasta’s dress and stabs his eyes out. After he blinds himself physically he feels pity for his two daughters, saying that no one will ever love them because they are the product of incest, he also says that his sons will make due because they are strong men. His downfall was that he was way to arrogant to put two and two together, and realize that he was the murderer whom need to either be exiled or killed, the prophecy that Jocasta and Laius got was the same that Oedipus got. After Oedipus is exiled Creon takes his place and becomes King of Thebes.
Creon was completely blinded by his pride and power that he lost those closest to him. Starting with his son... “Then she’ll die-- and in her death kill someone else. ”(Haemon; line 859). Creon thinks that his son is threatening him, and doesn’t pay attention to what his son is feeling towards Antigone.
Haemon's death contributed to Creon's wife death because she couldn't bare the thought of her son gone. After Creon heard the horrible news something changed about him as he stated “ I killed you, my son, without intending to, and you, as well, my wife. How useless i am now. I don’t know where to look or find support. Everything I touch goes wrong, and on my head fate climbs up withs its overwhelming load,(1486- 1490) .”
In the book, Fences, Troy is a Despicable man. You can see it when coming across people he doesn't really agree with or like discussing with. When it came to the time where that person would make him a little angry he would burst out and also become a different person. But thinking about it and looking back to history, he really didn't get raised with proper love from his family. He didn't really have people show him real or anytime of love from especially from his father.
Scar had a jealous conscience and dark deep desires since Simba was the heir to the throne. Thus he wanted to murder Mufasa and Simba to seize the position. He murders Mufasa but Simba survived, Scar then advised Simba to run away, declaring he was responsible for the tragic death of his father and to never come back, like this he would not disturb his reign. The fervor for power led Scar to murder his own brother who was the king were horrendous actions shaped by power.
Eulogy for Okonkwo by Nowye this whole eulogy stuff bs and i don't know why we are doing this haha.a. When my father Okonkwo died, inside i felt despair and anger. With him being my father i obviously was very saddened to find out that he had hung himself. Though i am very saddened about our loss of Okonkwo i am sickened by the way he passed, He knew committing suicide in our town is very much against what we believe in here at Umuofia.
He started to take revenge of his creator by killing the people of the town and the ones that he loved. All of this would have been different if victor would have pay attention to the monster. To have a successful invention one must have responsibility and take care of
It is a flaw in a sense that it is ultimately the cause of the downfall of his life and every man around him. It led him to his death and caused the blindness of his life. It is the reason neither him nor any man will reach happiness until he is
Tragic heroes are characters that make judgement errors that leads to their downfall or destruction. The tragic love story of Romeo and Juliet is a prime example of a tragic hero. Shakespeare portrayed Romeo and Juliet as victims that captured the audience's hearts. The book Inherit the wind written by Jerome Lawrence, and Robert E. Lee, is no love story, and the main character Matthew Harrison Brady is no Romeo; however Brady does meet Aristotle's criteria to be considered a tragic hero.
