John Procter wanted to sign his name because he just wanted to end the “war.” but he also did not want to say anyone’s name. He ends up signing his name and when he finishes, he realizes that he no longer cares and he doesn't care if he dies. John ripped the paper in half and that one action resulted in his death. However John Proctor is a tragic hero because of the two major decisions he made in his life, even if he ended up being hung. Going back to the third paragraph, John knew he was going to be in a lot of trouble for having an affair with Abigail.
Gilgamesh and Enkidu ruthlessly triumph over Humbaba and in their celebration. They viciously murder Humbaba even after he pleads for mercy. To add to their treachery, they mock the gods by laying Humbaba’s head before Enlil, the god who created Humbaba. Here is another sign that physical feats, especially the savagery of the deed, will not define Gilgamesh as a hero. In fact, he appears more as a murderer than a great leader.
So when someone like Gilgamesh relies on his ability to lead only with authority, the society begins to divide. The arrogance of Gilgamesh not only leads him to trouble, but it allows him to overcome those troubles and be reborn as the leader he wants to be remembered for. The beginning of Mesopotamian society began with the rise of the City-States
Throughout Ishmael’s journey he very rarely slept without medication. When he would sleep without medication, he would be haunted throughout the night by memories of the war. Revenge is never the answer relates to this because Ishmael was running from the pain inside of himself, but that pain that had only grown since his quest to avenge his family.

Ishmael lost his humanity in the war because he lost focus of what was truly important, like
However, he had no idea what attaining this goal would actually be like. During his time in the front with his comrades, he experienced death on an immense scale. Back home, he had been living in a bubble which was shielding him from the cruelty of the world; all of a sudden that bubble popped. This was all too overwhelming for Paul and he immediately became disillusioned. He realized that the path towards victory was not as exuberant as he had imagined and that he had to be willing to give up his life if necessary.
He may say to himself, “no more killing, no more life should be taken away, at least from me,” but it is unavoidable. He lost his beloved one. He uses what he adores to kill another one that he loves. This feeling, this emotion, is just too strong to bare that he lost his hope to live, lost his direction to live on. The fact that he died from cancer is a metaphor that signifies he is tired of this life and ready to take off.
Odysseus did not tell the full truth to his men, he slept with the goddesses and he was impatient. If Odysseus would’ve told the truth and done what the gods told him to do, he would’ve gotten to Ithaca faster. Based on the story and the facts, Odysseus was prideful, unloyal and irresponsible, therefore, I deem that Odysseus is not an archetype hero. Odysseus was prideful. He thought that he could beat anyone who came up on his path.
It is clear that Dr. Frankenstein is in a regretful mindset when he states, “I suffered living torture.” Meaning that he knew it was never Justine who killed William. However, he would never be able to speak up because he is fearful that he will be perceived as mad by his family and by the public. This was just one of the consequences that Frankenstein has to face due to his creation. Frankenstein also recognizes the fact that it is ultimately his own fault that William has died and that Justine will be wrongly sentenced for his death. Thus the reason he states that the trial is a “wretched mockery of justice.” The death of both William and Justine then lie on Victor Frankenstein’s shoulders.
He almost began wanting death as he became older and older. His guilt could not be cured. Death was the only end-all. No matter what he did, the terrible memory flashed through his mind over and over. Mankind will try to forget horrific memories, but those are the memories that linger with you forever.
If they were to die on him, he would have been all alone. Since he had struggles with his family, he had an internal battle to whether go to the dark side or the good side. However, since he is on the dark side he has to be loyal to the dark side. Finally, since he is on the dark side he wants to take over the whole entire galaxy, which is impossible. Darth Vader has always been loyal to the dark side, but also liked the good side because of his family, which make his battle internal.
Bathsheba and David soon conceived a second son, Solomon. The story doesn’t say if Bathsheba seduced David, then that would be a case of femme fatale, but for what I have read David is the one who fell in love with her at first sight and send for her. Not always women are the one to blame into mans misery, but man itself condemn themselves into a path of disgrace because they choose to sin. In this case scenario Bathsheba did not seduce David therefore David sinned as a choice of his own. But Bathsheba still gets blamed for David’s misery although she was just a women that did not intentionally try to get with David.
After Enkidu was killed Gilgamesh started to realize that even though Enkidu was strong and powerful he was still killed and the same thing could happen to him. So, Gilgamesh’s quest is to find everlasting life. He justify it by that he goes in the search for Utnapishtim, the Mesopotamian Noah who received eternal life from the gods, in the hope that he will tell him how he too can avoid death. Though, the Mesopotamian only gives Gilgamesh an insight of the afterlight-which gives little hope for Gilgamesh. Utnapishtim reveals that death is part of the human life and even though someone dies, humanity lives on.
