She is willing to go to the extent of killing the king and facing Beowulf, who was a fierce soldier to avenge Grendel’s death. The poet states “But now his mother had sallied forth on a savage journey, grief-racked and ravenous, desperate for revenge.” (p. 62). The line indicates her anger and rage towards the people who killed her son. In that rage lies the love she has for her son as a mother. The poet uses the line to create empathy on his readers.
Desdemona’s father states that he should kill her for her disloyalty from getting married without his permission.

Even though her betrayal is unforgivable, her father decides that her death would be undesirable blood on his hands, therefore, Desdemona’s act of secrecy taints her image with a seed of doubt. By gaining Othello’s love, Desdemona loses the love of her father and ruins her credibility in his eyes, which causes him to cast her out and exile her from their home.

In the text it also says, “Maybe he would do something crazy, like crash the car on purpose, to get back at her, or fall asleep and run the car into an irrigation ditch. And it would be her fault.” This connects to theme because, Maria needs to be thankful for her family and, she is not acting very thankful according to this quote.

Coriolanus, in what should be an epic of his vast combatic achievements, becomes a tragedy with his retreat from his initial choices, stemming from the influence of his mother, leading him to compromise himself as well as the concession of Rome’s security.

The tragic deaths of Romeo and Juliet are mainly the fault oh Juliet herself. Although several other factors play a role, ultimately Juliet has to take responsibility for her own actions.

Benvolio says this to Romeo, because Tybalt has just been killed because he killed Mercutio. “Romeo, away, be gone! / The citizens are up and Tybalt slain.”(3.1.130-131) This supports that Tybalt is to blame because his death leads to a lot more events like the capulet finding out and being heartbroken, but Juliet is even more sad because Romeo has been punished to exile but her parents don’t know that they are married. So to try and cheer up their daughter they try and marry her to another man to get her spirits up.

Telemachus releases his pent-up testosterone to take care of a problem that he should have dealt with a while ago, the suitors. “Suitors plague my mother-against her will-/… By god, it’s intolerable, what they do-disgrace,/ my house a shambles!” (Homer. 2. 55- 68) is an excerpt from Telemachus’ speech to rid the suitors. He literally tells the suitors that they are leeches and they lack the guts to properly ask for his mother’s hand in marriage by asking her father.
Throughout Sophocles’ tragic play, Antigone, main characters King Kreon and Antigone dramatically argue without compromise over the burial of recently deceased brother of Antigone, Polyneices. Antigone, while attempting to mourn for her family, symbolically buries Polyneices, going against the King’s decree (93-100). Out of anger, and an effort to establish his power, Kreon sentences her to an undeserving death just because she decided to respect her kin (441-496). In this case, I sympathize with Antigone more than Kreon because she peacefully acts on her beliefs knowing the consequences at stake. It takes a lot to stand up for what you believe in, especially knowing that the outcome will not bode well for you.
