“Talk not to me, for I’ll not speak a word: Do as thou wilt, for I have done with thee” – Lady Capulet (Act 3, Scene 5, Lines 129-130). Lady Capulet was an irresponsible mother who turned her back on her daughter when Juliet needed her the most. It seems very likely that Lady Capulet’s wedding was arranged by her family too and when Juliet rebels against this, she is against the kind of marriage her mother had. Lady Capulet is obedient to Juliet’s father and urges obedience from Juliet. Lord and Lady Capulet, although not directly killing Romeo and Juliet, prompted it from the
She thereby dispels Father Lawrence’s stereotypes by not acting upon her ‘womanish’ fears and by instead acting masculine and trying to protect Romeo. Her willingness to die because life without Romeo is not worth living displays a knightly commitment that leads her to the brink of
One of Antigone 's tragic flaws is being loyal to the gods and her disloyalty to Creon. At the beginning of the play, Creon puts out an order that Polyneices, Antigone 's brother, may not be buried because he was a traitor. Antigone is not going to put up with this, she is going to honor the gods and give her brother, Polyneices, and rightful burial, even if it means being executed for her doing. Antigone 's determination to honor the gods and her brother is one of her tragic
No more, Ismene. You are alive, but i belong to death.” This also proves that antigone uses logical and emotional appeals because ismene didn 't commit the crime so antigone not letting her take the blame is logical and also antigone stating she belongs to death is emotional because who would want their sister to die especially there last sibling. Teiresias uses logical and ethical appeals to persuade creon to let antigone free from the tomb before she dies. For example Teiresias tries to persuade creon to release antigone from the tomb by insulting him true
In questioning, Antigone uncovers that she knew her actions went against Creon’s orders, but she could not disobey the Gods “because [she] feared a man” (459-460). To maintain his power in reign, Creon determines Ismene guilty by association (488-489) and demands the sisters be sentenced to death promptly. Ismene, who refused to participate in the burial, attempted to persuade Creon to let Antigone and herself free. She pulls on Creon’s heart by speaking of his beloved son, Haemon, “‘but she is Haemon’s bride--and can you kill her?’ . .
I’ll do duty to my brother and yours as well, if you’re not prepared to I won’t be caught betraying him”(line 58). Her sister tries to convince her not to go against Creon’s decree, but because she was so stubborn she would not listen and did as she pleased. “A vain attempt should not be made at all”(Ismene). (Antigone) “So leave me
Hamlet wants his mother to love him not Claudius. The quotes also shows Hamlet’s anger towards his mother remarrying. Hamlet’s feelings towards his mother in this quote also represents the Oedipus Complex. Hamlet also portrays the Oedipus complex when he states “Oh, throw away the worser part of it, And live the purer with the other half. Good night—but go not to mine uncle’s bed.
Thomas Hardy also reveals a dual perspective of Tess character. Critically, the author dramatises the representation of a naïve woman (“A Pure Woman Faithfully Presented” – as stated in the book’s subtitle), in order to ratify the injustices and difficulties faced by the feminine universe inserted in the inflexible Victorian society. The irony is established: despite the innocence of the character, she suffers the most different torments - she is raped, becomes a mistress and a single mother. Tess is definitely the paradox of an angel and a
He informs Hamlet that killing Claudius would be appropriate and with reason, considering the previous circumstances in which led to how King Hamlet ended up a ghost, but harming Gertrude would be unacceptable, as she is innocent and has not done any wrong, besides agreeing to engage in an incestuous marriage, that is. “Against thy mother aught; leave her to heaven, and those thorns that in her bosom lodge, to prick and sting her,” (document A). King Hamlet believes not to blame her, but to give her time and, eventually, she will realize the wrong she has also done. In sum, the ghost of King Hamlet tells his son that killing Claudius, and only Claudius, would be considered just. Because King Hamlet only instructed Hamlet to kill Claudius, as he is his murderer, the death of Polonius is, however accidental, caused by Hamlet’s carefree, and utterly stupid, actions.
Easily to win over for anything yet you love him, then you need to support him stop obeying orders. In addition, Polonius tells her to stop talking and hanging out with Hamlet and instead of standing up for what you want you decide to listen. Which shows that Ophelia would rather listen to her father then protect the person she say she loves Hamlet explains your love for hamlet didn't exist only when you wanted it to. Anybody that loves there mate would go through a great deal of trouble just to see them, she just obeyed and didn't bother to make a connect with Hamlet. Meanwhile, when Polonius and the king think Hamlet does not know he is being spied on but he do that's why Hamlet acts out the way he did to Ophelia.
