Also, due to past disastrous event, specifically when Oedipus killed his father and married his mother, it had angered the gods and cursed the Oedipus’ family. This is evident in the following quote: “Where once the anger of heaven has struck, that house is shaken” (Sophocles, pg.215). It can also reference the gods have the ability to cause great trouble to a person or family. Furthermore, this stanza, once again, implies that the gods will take revenge and bring hardship to the Oedipus’ family members. Especially may be referring to the fate of the Oedipus’ children, foreshadowing a curse that will continue to haunt Antigone.
The makeup was made out of lead and was poisonous. Women today still wear makeup to cover up insecurities.. The bubonic plague affected many people including Shakespeare. According to Linda/bubonic plague Shakespeare had lost his brothers,sisters, and his own son to the plague. Also when the plague had outbreaks they would shut down theaters where he had his
He had just killed king Duncan and he says that he will never be able to wash all of the blood out of his hands. He feels so guilty that he thinks that what he did will never get better. He is seeing the consequence of listening to the witches. This is an example of guilt because at that point he would do anything to take it back. Another example of guilt is the hallucinations that Macbeth has after he kills someone.
In ‘Romeo and Juliet’ the Capulets and Montage's end their feud after the tragedy itself. “O brother Montague, give me thy hand” (Shakespeare 5.3 Page 13). Capulet has realized the harm and effects of the death of the ‘star-crossed lovers’ after losing his precious treasure he felt guilt due to all the cruel words he had said to Juliet. The feud is an important aspect of the book because it was the reason for all the deaths and secrecy. “Doth with their death bury their parents' strife.” (Shakespeare Prologue page 1.)
However in the end Doodle might have tried too hard because, when death comes knocking the door is usually answered and, sadly for Doodle he may have been strong but not strong enough, ¨ For a long time, it seemed forever, I lay there crying, sheltering my fallen scarlet ibis from the heresy of rain.¨ this symbolises the death of a bird called an ibis that Doodle had taken the care to bury just hours before, and his brother the narrator is now, remembering how just like Doodle the scarlet ibis had come so far from where is started only to die a tragic and sorrowful death, and how remarkable that it was the accomplishments they both made. Going more in depth in this his brother had never really shown compassion towards Doodle and sort of thought of him as a burden. THis is why some may see it as surprising that he felt so much emotion when his brother passed but, others not so much because, through the resentment there was always love only to be cut short by a short life. Taking a look back at the story it seems like everything lead up to Doodles death and it seemed as if there was a lot of death mentioned as it progressed too. There still could have been other symbols to connect to but, death definitely
"Pack of crazy fools," he said. "Listening to the young folks, nothing's good enough for them. Next thing you know, they'll be wanting to go back to living in caves” where the older people said this is write and the younger said it wasn't. Another time it shows this is when everybody is scared of the FAKE black box. I think that the theme that people will follow a tradition for no reason at the end because when they are stoning Tessie Hutchinson to death because she had the black dot on her paper she said "It isn't fair, it isn't right,’ Mrs. Hutchinson screamed, and then they were upon
The suicide of Creon son already made Creon realize that he made a mistake convicting Antigone. Haemon's death symbolizes Creon's mistake of convicting Antigone. Because of Haemon's death: “Your [Creon] wife [Eurydice] is dead, the mother of this slaughtered son. / Her wound is fresh, but the breath of life is gone” (53). Now Creon's wife and son are dead because of his actions.
Later, when the daemon met the blind man and began speaking with him, Felix came into the room and pulled De Lacey away from the Monster. He became upset and this action was the last straw. The Monster says, “My protectors had departed, and had broken the only link that held me to the wold. For the first time the feelings of revenge and hatred filled my bosom…”(Shelley 99). The death of William, Henry, and Elizabeth were all caused by the cruel demeanor of the world around him to people or things who look different.
Also the monster shows hatred vengeance towards mankind when he burns down the cottage of De Lacey. “A gush of tears somewhat soothed me. But again, when I reflected that they had spurned and deserted me, anger return, a rage of anger; and, unable to injure anything human, I turned my fury towards inanimate objects” (Shelley 99). He is so angry that the family has left the cottage after seeing him that he knows he can’t take his anger out on the family but he can on the cottage itself. The book Frankenstein and short story “The Sniper” have a couple differences but they also have some similarities.
That’s nice,’ and he stroked harder … She jerked sideways, and Lennie’s fingers closed on her hair and hung on...And then she was still, for Lennie had broken her neck…For a second he was bewildered. And then he whispered in fright, ‘I done a bad thing’” (Steinbeck 91).Furthermore, Lennie’s sin was a result from temptation which came from Curley’s wife. In Of Mice and Men, Curley’s wife acted as a “serpent” who tempted Lennie to make bad decisions. The temptation worked as Lennie had killed Curley’s wife. In result, he was killed from the negative effect that came afterwards since Curley was
In The Tell Tale Heart, the character buries another person under his floorboards because he didn 't’ like the ways his eye looked, which makes us pretty sure he had some type of mental illness and was mad like Poe at the end of his life. For example, in The Tell Tale Heart, it says, “Now this is the point you fancy me mad. Madmen know nothing. [...] You should have seen how wisely I proceeded with what caution with what foresight with what dissimulation I went to work.” (Poe) This quote shows that the character didn’t know if he was mad or not. Also in The Tell Tale Heart it says, “I heard all the things in heaven and in the earth.
Chris and his best friend, Chad Littlefield, were both gunned down in the attempt to help Eddie. They were pronounced dead at the gun range. In the article Taya says she regrets one thing, and that was the fact that she did not support him as well as she should have. “I just wish I would have been able to hold his face in my hands and look at him in the eye and tell him. I know you’re in pain.
