In Fences, by August Wilson, Troy’s selfishness makes him a tragic hero because it causes him to make decisions that hurt not only himself but ultimately the people who he loves most. Troy’s inner selfishness is the sole reason for his affair with Alberta, and it is what eventually triggers the split in his family. When trying to stop the metaphorical bleeding caused by his affair, Troy characterizes himself with Rose as “we”, to which Rose responds with, “All of a sudden it’s ‘we.’ Where was ‘we’ at when you was down there rolling around with some godforsaken woman? ‘We’ should have come to an understanding before you started making a damn fool of yourself” (68). Rose is totally offended that he would even consider them together, and rightly
He did not want to bury his own nephew, he wanted to kill Antigone for burying Polyneices, and tried to kill his own brother because the kingdom had a curse on it. 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

Notwithstanding, Shakespeare 's Hamlet addresses the viability of vengeance as an obstacle, as it is a feeling that expends Hamlet, Fortinbras and Laertes and prompts the passings of all, yet one of them. Claudius did not imagine that Hamlet would sooner or later need to apply exact retribution for his dad 's downfall. Interestingly, this did not hinder him from later killing King Hamlet and wedding his wife. Village, however decided, can 't retaliate for his dad 's passing and it is this defer drives the plot forward and prompts the passings of Ophelia, Rosencratz, Polonius, Gertrude, Laertes and Guildenstern. Fortinbras is devoured by reprisal and
Fellowship did not want exposure to death, as Everyman was about to have. Fellowship participated in deceitful actions towards Everyman. The desertion of Everyman by Kindred and Cousin add to the performative structure of dark play by playing into a conflict that their desertion caused. Everyman did not want to continue on his own. This is relatable for audience members as a way of showing; no one can go with them in the end.
Besides the point that he does not want his own daughter to get hurt by another man, but he also cares about his reputation too. Polonius was devoted to King Claudius at the time, and since Claudius was not in a good relationship with Hamlet, Polonius does not want his daughter to embarrass him by being in a relationship with Hamlet. Polonius’ words to Ophelia showed that he is a person who cares more about material well-beings and his own reputation than his daughter’s happiness. When Ophelia was explaining Hamlet’s actions, she said that “He hath, my lord, of late made many tenders of his affection to me” (108-09). The word “tenders” has three meanings: kind, money, and to give.
Is Love Always True Love? Love is a intense feeling or deep emotion, it is something you show towards a person not just something you confess and then not have any action behind your words. In the book Hamlet written by William Shakespeare Hamlet the prince claims he loves Ophelia but yet he does not show in any way that he truly loves her. Hamlet professes his love for Ophelia, but he does not truly love her because he mistreats her and feels no remorse for killing her father. In act four Hamlet ‘pretended’ that he didnt love Ophelia because her dad and claudius were watching him.
The only downside, however, is that we might have dreams when we are dead—bad/evil dreams. According to Hamlet in that quote, "being in love" is like getting hit by thousands of arrows because the pain is unbearable, as it really hurts that much, and due to the fact that his mom married so soon after his father 's death makes him feel a sense of betrayal. In any case, Hamlet thinks about whether it 's ideal to endure the awful things you think about in life than to keep running off into death 's "undiscovered country." His issue is that he wouldn 't like to continue living when he is super discouraged about his uncle executing his father and marrying his mother, however, he doesn 't recognize what death will bring and that is frightening, as well. He could consequently wind up like his father.
Hamlet wishes to get revenge for his father's death, but is mentally unable to kill his uncle Claudius. This causes him to have an internal conflict with himself, he feels as if it's his duty to complete the task and get revenge for his father. On the other hand, Hamlet’s moral compass will not allow him to kill another human being. Later in the play these feelings resolve themselves a little, but this is one of Hamlet’s major challenges to overcome throughout the
Though, Hamlet does get off task sometimes and strays from what the ghost told him to do and disobeys by attacking his mother. The ghost influences the theme of revenge by saying these things to his son. He alters who Prince Hamlet attacks with plots of revenge. His father’s ghost is what made him infuriated in the first place. His anger caused him to only think about revenge.
naught that I am,/ Not for their own demerits, but for mine,/ Fell slaughter on their souls: heaven rest them now!” (4.3 223-227). Macduff is upset about the events that occur and is too weak to do anything about it. Instead of being strong and getting revenge on Macbeth, he gets emotional. Shakespeare subverts the stereotypical gender role as he gives Macduff a feminine characteristic of emotion. Macduff uses his anger as he wants to fight Macbeth.
