Poe uses foreshadowing to reveal the upcoming intentions of Montresor. An example of this is when Poe writes, “I promised myself that I would make him pay for this, that I would have revenge.” Just by using the word revenge the audience can already tell that Montresor is going to do something to Fortunato in order to bring justice for himself. Another example of foreshadowing is when Poe writes, “We walked on for sometime. We were now under the river’s bed, and water fell in drops upon us from above. Deeper into the ground we went, past still more bones.” From the description the author uses the audience can create an image of a catacomb.
He confidently states Cassio’s offence against Roderigo, the crying man, in efforts to execute him. This initially lowers the reputation of Cassio in the eyes of Othello and his crew, but later on, uses his language of innocence, to act like he is in no way against Cassio. In lines 224-227, Iago claims to have run after the crying man and to be unaware of the possible atrocity that could have happened during then. This leaves his audience under an assumption of any possible situation, whether it be worse or better. Lastly, Iago hurts Cassio for the last time, possibly hitting the final blow by telling his audience of Cassio’s oaths and inappropriate language.
They way Oedipus portrayed his actions made him kill these men in a pure hast, fulfilling half of the prophecy. If Oedipus instead calmed himself down the outcome of the situation could’ve been avoided all together and the prophecy could’ve remained un-touched. Jocasta seems to put the connection together that Oedipus killed Laius, faster then he could. All of Oedipus’ actions are based on pure impulse and towards the emotions he is feeling at the time to make such bad judgment calls. It has been shown that Oedipus’ short tempered and irrational behavior made him do unthinkable things to the people who got in his
He lost his whole family his sons and wife. “ I killed you, my son, without intending to, and you, as well, my wife. How useless I am now.”(Creon; lines 188) Creon realizes it’s too late his mistakes, and now that he lost his family, he realizes he should of listened. All his family dead, he is now alone because he was blinded by his pride that he didn't listen.He realized too late of all the consequences that his ignorance brought upon him. Throughout the play Antigone by Sophocles Creon is seen as a tragic hero, due to the fact that he is rude to others when they try to talk to him and acts childish when insulting others.
Page44). To Macbeth, becoming king is worthless unless his position as king is safe. He fears that Banquo’s murder will be revenged by his own murder, and it may reveal the hidden knowledge of his guilt. He uses anaphora, which is the used of a word referring to or replacing a word used earlier in a sentence, so like a repetition of a word or phrase, “to be thus… to be safely thus.” The consequence to Macbeth when he killed Banquo, would be that he would feel guilty. It was caused when Macbeth finishes his talk with one of the murderer.
Macbeth's lust for power becomes blatantly obvious based upon his fears that "to be thus is nothing, but to be safely thus", prompting him to kill Banquo and make an attempt at his son, Fleance. To relieve himself of his insecurities, he manipulates two murderers to believe than Banquo is their "enemy" and the source of all of their problems, displaying his twisted nature. He does not, before the act is already committed, share news of the "deed of dreadful note" with his "dearest chuck", Lady Macbeth, proving he has made his face a "vizard to [his] heart" not only for the public, but also to his once-cohort. Macbeth's peers' opinion sinks so low that he is often merely referred to as a "tyrant" rather than by his name. He is not only a traitorous and cruel king, but the extent to which he is "unfit to govern" makes him "unfit to live" - deserving of death for how he has let down Scotland.
He blames everything on Claudius because he is the one that killed Hamlet’s father and now his mother. This give Hamlet peace about all of the events that have lead to this moment. We should learn from this that revenge in haste can be chaotic and unsuccessful. Revenge may not always be the answer, but if that is what you choose, then it needs to be well thought out and tested for flaws. I think that Laertes got the revenge that he wanted and even though it resulted in his own death as well, he got some closure that he needed.
When he orders the murder of Macduff he orders the murder of his wife and family as well, an act of malice, not for his own protection. After speaking with the witches, he says, "Then live, Macduff. What need I fear of thee? But yet I’ll make assurance double sure, And take a bond of fate. Thou shalt not live, That I may tell pale-hearted fear it lies, And sleep in spite of thunder."
(for reals this time) Juliet want to be with her husband “Yea, noise? Then I’ll be brief. O happy dagger, this is thy sheath. There rust and let me die. “(5.3) It show’s how now that romeo is dead because he didn’t get the memo that she was faking it, (because he was exiled) he killed himself.
“The Cask of Amontillado” by Edgar Allan Poe is a story about a betrayal and revenge, which depicts how Montresor uses weakness as a tool to successfully lure Fortunato into his trap. Fortunato himself plays a vital role in being murdered by Montresor. There are lots of traces in the story which point out Fortunato’s weaknesses and his foolishness. When Montresor suggests Fortunato to return home, Fortunato exclaims, “The cough is mere nothing; it will not kill me” (Poe) which suggest that, although receiving enough opportunities, Fortunato neglects the fortune he was being offered. Fortunato’s weaknesses resulting in his own death include his love for wine, his immense pride and his trusting nature.
