He had rocks thrown at him just for looking different, shot for saving a girl from drowning and chased away from a village. Anyone that is treated like they are evil and unwanted for no reason you cannot blame for becoming evil. The moment the Creature was given life he was already being treated like a Monster or mistake ”I beheld the wretch-the miserable monster whom i had created.”(Mary Shelley Frankenstein 32) His own creator called him a Monster. Frankenstein was the Creatures father and he ran away from him, left him all alone hoping he would just go away so he didn 't have to deal with what he just did.
Not only did Macbeth die for being overly ambitious. His wife also dies as well for riding the same wave as Macbeth and being selfish for being king and queen. We see this in Act 5 scene 5 when Macbeth says, “She should have died hereafter; There would have been a time for such a word (5.5.20).” Macbeth caused his own death when he decided to murder and steal the rightful throne of
Out of anger she slices her sons head off and seduces Beowulf, she tells him to give her a son since he killed her only son. Grendel’s mother tells Beowulf as long as the horn stays in her lair she will not attack his Hrothgar’s people again.

After doing such a thing she was exiled from her own homeland and while she was escaping with Jason and the Golden Fleece she took severe measures and murdered her brother, cutting him up into little pieces, and throwing those pieces into the sea in order to gain some time to escape successfully. This was a complete and utter betrayal by Medea towards her family and homeland. This was not it, Medea and Jason settled in Lolcos and in Lolcos Medea manipulated the daughter of the king and tricked her into killing her father (the king of Lolcos). The only reason she did this was so that Jason could obtain the throne of Lolcos but both of them were banned from Lolcos too. After this Creon, the king of Corinth, welcomes them into his territory, in Corinth, Creon asks Jason to marry his daughter and Jason accepts, betraying Medea.
George proceeded to tell Lennie “An’ she stopped givem ‘em to ya. You always killed ‘em.” (9) This, alongside with Curley’s wife’s murder, proves Lennie’s uncontrolled strength. The poor woman’s death is what starts the manhunt after Lennie, and after so many wrongdoings on his part, Lennie is shot by George, just like Candy’s dog was shot by Carlson. Lennie, much like Candy’s dog, is decided by George that he is better off dead, as he has no chance of surviving in the society his in, especially with the pugnacious Curley, the ranch owner’s son, after
The free will of Oedipus’ father, King Laius, to banish his son from his kingdom led to Oedipus killing him and marrying his own mother, allowing fate to play out. In Antigone, the deaths of many characters were due to their own choices. Haemon, son of Creon, makes the conscious decision to commit suicide in order to be with his loved one. Eurydice, wife of Creon, makes the decision to commit suicide when she hears her son has killed himself. Creon unknowingly put these events into play when he made the individual decision to outlaw the burial of Polynices.
In the story, Romeo and Juliet kill themselves because they can't live without each other. This means that they killed themselves for the love of each other, and because of this they never told their parents about the peace. In The Interlopers, Ulrich and Georg ended up being killed by wolves before they can tell anybody about the peace making. This means because they died that nobody will ever know about the peace they made. As I explained above, both stories are alike because the main characters die before they can tell their family about the peace making.

Later, after Beowulf defeated Grendel, he was faced with the task of defeating Grendel's mother. Grendel's mother went to Hrothgar and began antagonizing the people that lived there because they killed her son and she was very angry. Beowulf went after her to the lake and killed her, even with the disadvantage of being underwater. After Beowulf kills Grendel's mother, he says "if God had not helped me" (Seamus Heaney, Line 1657), which means that he could have possibly not been successful if God had not been there to support him during the battle." Fifty years later, Beowulf reaches success again as a king by defeating a greedy dragon that lived underground and started burning houses because someone went into his lair and took some of his possessions (Seamus Heaney, Line 2220-2334).

They all turn in the alarm, including Millie herself, and Montag is forced to burn down his own house. This is because the "family" has no knowledge of what life used to be like and so they do not know how to comprehend the poem so they think that it is just about hate and destruction. To save his own hide, he also was forced to shoot Beatty who was burned by the flame thrower, to a crisp. Knowing he would be sought out by the hound, he runs away to Faber 's who tries to get him away by sending him down to the river. He makes it to the river and crosses to the other side, just in time to stop the hound from getting to him, and he runs away from his
