Some of those antipathetic to this argument believe that Romeo is most at fault for the death of the couple because of his impetuous decision to commit suicide. Romeo would have never felt as if he needed to do this if the plan wasn’t set in the first place. Friar Laurence knew there could be major consequences if the plan failed, and this time they proved to be pernicious. “Her body sleeps in Capel 's ' monument,And her immortal part with angels lives”(V.I). Romeo would have never received this misguided information if it wasn’t for Friar’s overall plan, plus his lack of communication.
He had too much power and needed to calm down and think what he was doing. Antigone knew that this was the right to do and did without being afraid or sorry for it. She was helping Creon, Ismene, and the community, and they did not realize that she was helping them until it was too
How did King Hamlet affect the development of other characters in the play while being present so briefly? It all spins off of the one moment when he told his last words to Hamlet of what really happened to him. Once hamlet found out the truth, he started thinking of ways he could seek vengeance for his father and he ended up coming up with putting on this act so that people would think he’s going crazy, which effected every other characters development
The first deadly sin implemented into the story is pride. Three rioters become aware of their friend being taken by death. The men claim that they will “slay this traitor Death” (371). Although Chaucer knows death not to be man, he personifies it in this tale into the form of a man. This quote demonstrates the deadly sin of pride because the foolish rioters think they can avenge their friend against an unknown enemy.
Lastly, Tybalt is the most to blame for the events that occur in Romeo and Juliet because of the the first events he caused leading to the suicides of Romeo and Juliet. The confirmation that Tybalt is the cause of the terrible events in Romeo and Juliet is shown in the play “Romeo and Juliet” when Romeo says, “Is it even so? then I defy you, stars! Thou know ' st my lodging: get me ink and paper, and hire post-horses; I will hence tonight.”
He is too prideful to save his own cousin and even sentences Ismene just to look out for his throne. Another show of pride is when he threatens the sentry just for telling him dreadful news. Creon threatens the sentry to "string" the sentry up just because he thinks he is losing control of the people (Scene 1, 141). Creon even values his pride over his own son, sentenced him to death with Antigone. Despite his anger, Haimon tells Creon to be reasonable, but Creon’s pride gets in the way of reason.
In William Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet, Benvolio often chooses to make bad decisions knowing the consequences, as well as kill 4 people just because he failed to help make the right choices for his friends. Benvolio is accountable for the deaths of Romeo and Juliet because he often encourages Romeo to make rash decisions, knowing Romeo could get hurt. First of all, Benvolio was the one who introduced the idea of finding a new girl to love to Romeo, at the Capulet's feast. In act 1 scene 2, line 85, Benvolio is talking to Romeo about going to the Capulet's feast, Benvolio then says ¨at this same ancient feast of the Capulet's Sups fair Rosaline whom thou
Another action where Oedipus’s sense of pride led to his downfall is during the beginning to the play. When the plague is happening and his people is suffering because of his compassion for his people, he sent Creon to go to Delphi. When he learned that he have to investigate the murder of King Laius, he quickly without thinking curses the murderer, unknowingly cursing himself “I curse that murderer; if he is alone, I curse him! If he shares his guilt with others, I curse him! May His evil heart beat out its years in sorrow,” (pg 193).
Dido tells Anna to burn most things that he has left behind, but really this was a plan of Dido’s to kill herself. Dido states, “To whom do you abandon me, a dying woman, guess that you are-the only name now left from that of a husband? Why do I live on?” What Dido is implying here is that she has no reason to live because she is losing the man who she is married to. Aeneas does not think he has to stay because the real marriage ceremony did not occur.
1. Haimon attitudes when he convey his father at the beginning of the scene seem to be imploring or flattering. At the end of the scene, he starts to show that he had a mind of his own and could think, and he was just respecting his father. 2. Creon's advice to Haimon about women is that Haimon should not lose his head in women, although Creon, he himself didn't have any experience about women when he misjudges Antigone.
In the play Antigone by Sophocles one central idea behind the play is the guilt that Creon's life has put him at. In the beginning, Creon is shown to be a horrible, stubborn, and ignorant king to his citizens in Thebes, but over the course of the ply one can tell that he has a made a big impact to his peers and he’s realized what he has done is wrong in the world. Antigone, who is a strong, power, young girl, stood up to someone of a higher power of her and she stood up for what she thought was right; Creon didn’t budge and listened to himself, ignoring other opinions. By not taking in any opinions into consideration something bad was going to come, Creon was indulging Antigone in making the choice about whether state laws come first, over family. By the end of the play it
Despite “there [being] about 97 men for every 100 women” in the United States, the country remains a patriarchy (Kiersz). Women have been trying to gain equal rights, but it has been an uphill battle. The first step in gaining equality is making one’s voice heard. Protesting is a common method of making oneself known and it can be seen in poetry such as “Still I Rise” by Maya Angelou and “Daddy” by Sylvia Plath. Protesting can also be seen in longer forms of literature such as The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood, Antigone by Sophocles, and The Help directed by Taylor Tate.
