Macbeth’s quick transition of concern from Banquo to Fleance exhibits his disregard to the people close to him, a distinct behavior often tied to sociopathic people. Macbeth’s calm and collected attitude after the news of Banquo’s murder is unnerving and frightening, especially after seeing how affected he had been at the murder of King Duncan. When killing King Duncan, Macbeth was thoughtless and anxious, but when planned the murder of Banquo Macbeth was cool minded and collected. Macbeth was once a trustworthy man, but now is a disrespectful and violent king. Furthermore, after Banquo’s murder, his body is shown no respect as “Safe in a ditch he bides,/With twenty trenchèd gashes on his head” (Shakespeare 101).
John Proctor was a man who was well-respected and hoped to make better for his wife and his children. John Proctor’s downfall was committing adultery which put him in a place where he hardly couldn’t forgive himself but he wanted forgiveness from his wife. According to Elizabeth, “It come to naught that I should forgive you, if you'll not forgive yourself.”(965). Elizabeth is saying that she will forgive John for what he did but he have to forgive himself before anyone else could forgive him. John Proctor died because he didn’t confess for being a witch and committed adultery so that caused him to be
However, Brutus wasn’t the only part of the killing of Caesar he was an accomplice along with Cassius and Casca, so he had some people who felt the same as Brutus. You could see that Brutus was a man with good morals because he didn’t want to kill Antony because he wanted the death of Caesar to be a sacrifice to the gods and not a blood bath. Antony didn’t take the death of his beloved friend well and was determined to avenge the death of
Antony adds this example to show that since Caesar denied the crown he is refusing to accept power, hard work, and authority. Thus making him an unambitious person. The second example of logos in the oration is when Antony states, “ When that the poor have cried Caesar hath wept” (III.ii.47). This statement is very logical of Antony since it connects the audience to Caesar wept for to the audience due to the fact that they aren’t the richest people in Rome. Through this connection the audience gets the implication that Caesar cared and had sympathy for them so his death was wrongful and savage.
Most people would say that it is the friar simply because he let them get married in the first place when he should not have. It only caused more problems for these lovers. Basically someone is responsible for these lovers deaths. The friar is to blame because he let them get married and it caused a lot of problems for them. He also is to blame because he didn’t get the message delivered to Romeo in time so when he arrived at the tomb of Juliet she awake yet so he killed himself and then she saw that he was dead so she killed herself.
Brutus' decision to stab Caesar in the back wasn't an easy one. He has to choose between his loyalty to the Roman Republic and his loyalty to his friend. Seems like he could be heading toward tyrant status. Brutus says he killed Caesar because he loved Rome more than he loved Caesar. Based on examples in The Tragedy of Julius
Was Brutus Noble? In Shakespeare 's’ The Tragedy Of Julius Caesar, one of the main characters, Marcus Brutus, is found dead by the noble Mark Antony, and is called “The Noblest Roman Of Them All” (Julius Caesar Act 5, scene 5, 68–72). Antony 's’ statement is a true one for many reasons. The first reason would be that Brutus was a man who valued his friendships over all else. He also always spoke with honesty, and was a truthful person.
Another reason that can show you that Brutus is a better man is on page 945 line 77, “Et tu, Brute? Fall, Caesar” -Caesar. Caesar says his last words to Brutus saying this meaning you too Brutus because Brutus was the last one to stab Caesar and Caesar thought you too because he was a close friend and Caesar never thought that Brutus would ever turn on him and help kill him. What this is getting at is Brutus’ 23rd stab is the one that really killed Caesar because once he knew his closest friend stabbed him he couldn 't take it
Towards the beginning of the story when Creon wants to punish her for burying her brother, Antigone begs him to kill her, as “[His] talking is a great weariness.” (2.95) Not only is she trying to show disrespect by rushing the king, but is doing so arrogantly, putting herself above him for that brief moment. Although she starts off in the play as this naive and arrogant character, towards the end she develops a sort of humility and knowledge that she is doomed in a fate out of her control. She realizes fate is “Operative for ever, beyond man utterly. [Antigone] knew [she] must die...” (2.64). She accepts knowledge of her end, and lives on with it.
