The two pieces had the same prophecy, where the man with one sandal would kill King Pelias. Although the way Jason ended up with one sandal on his foot contradicts between the two (Jason carried an old lady in the story and the actual King Pelias in the film), this helps in understanding the plot. Other similar points include Medea falling in love with Jason, Medea betraying her father, killing the Titan Talos by his ankles (his main weakness), and obtaining the Golden Fleece. These are the main plot points that parallel the works. Minor details include dragon teeth generating warriors, Harpies disturbing King Phineus, and the Golden Fleece in the shape of a ram.
Irony is often thought of as entertaining, but it also serves a different purpose. In the play of Sophocles titled Oedipus the King, irony is present in every scene, if not every line. When the protagonist runs away to avoid killing his father and marrying his mother, only to kill his father on the road and go on to marry his mother, it can only be ironic. He is a brave and smart man. He killed four men by himself and outsmarted a Sphinx, and became the great king of the city he rescued from her claws.

He said it is not his place to do so and that heaven will judge her when it comes time.
In the book of “Mice of Men” by John Steinbeck, it was evident from the start that Lennie could not possibly function in the harsh society that they lived in without George by his side to care for him.

The final time Hamlet tries to kill Claudius, he succeeds . This occurs during the last scene of the play.But,what Hamlet did not know is that he has already been poisoned by Laertes’s sword causing Hamlet to die soon after killing Claudius and this all comes down to hamlet being a tragic hero , because everything that happened to him , was mostly suffering through the entire play. In my opinion, Hamlet’s procrastination led to his downfall and death, as well as the deaths of many others in the play.
