Amir had sinned throughout the novel. He lied, witnessed a sin and never told anyone, and was putting his own friend down. Amir knew that Baba’s moral was to not steal because it was a sin, purposely he hides his own stuff under his friends bed. He saw Hassan getting raped without telling anyone or doing anything. Also he would lie and teach him wrong infortmation.
Huck lies to the old lady at st petersburg about his name and where he is coming from and what he is doing there. If I was in Huck’s position I would also lie about who I was if I was running away because he didn’t know if the old lady would tell others who he was and what his true intentions were. If he told the lady a fake name she wouldn’t recognize who he was so he could just go on his way without anyone knowing who he was and what he was doing. The last lie I found was a very bad lie by some very bad people.
Amir makes hassan look like a thief by “planting [his] new watch and a handful of Afghani bills under [the mattress]” (Hosseini 104). Hassan knew of Amirs intentions that Amir wanted him to leave so Hassan lies and says that he stole it in order to remain loyal with his friend Amir. Thus, Hassan and his father Ali, feel like they can no longer serve Baba or Amir anymore and leave forever; Amir never sees him again. It was then that Amir realized how much of a horrible person he was and how undeserving he was to have Hassan. His father realized it was him and forgave him even though his father said “theft is unforgivable.”
While Odysseus and his crew are slowly moving away from Cyclopes Island, Odysseus tells Polyphemus that he is “Odysseus, Laertes’ son,” whose home “lies on Ithaca” (Homer 459 and 460). Because of his arrogant decision to tell Polyphemus the truth of his origins, he essentially dooms him and his crew. Polyphemus, who is Poseidon's son, asks of his father to punish Odysseus for his arrogance, whom grants his prayer. In cessation, Odysseus’ haughty decision to tell Polyphemus his whereabouts leads to his utter
The theme of The Great Gatsby, by F. Scott Fitzgerald is that the upper class tend to participate in actions that are commonly seen as dishonest, unfaithful, or sketchy. Characters like Nick, Gatsby, Tom and George have twisted views on their own reality due to unfaithfulness and dishonesty. Nick was constantly lied to in the story, for example, Gatsby lied to him about where he got his money. Lies, similar to the one above, gave Nick some twisted views on the reality of his friendship. Gatsby had a twisted view on love due to Daisy marrying Tom right after he left for the war, rather than waiting for him.
Odysseus did not tell the full truth to his men, he slept with the goddesses and he was impatient. If Odysseus would’ve told the truth and done what the gods told him to do, he would’ve gotten to Ithaca faster. Based on the story and the facts, Odysseus was prideful, unloyal and irresponsible, therefore, I deem that Odysseus is not an archetype hero. Odysseus was prideful. He thought that he could beat anyone who came up on his path.
Since Odysseus had told Polyphemus earlier that “Nobody---that’s my name,”(Homer 223.410) none of Polyphemus’ brothers came to help him when he started screaming that “Nobody” was attacking him. Another time when Odysseus was very skillful was when he goes back to his home, and he disguises himself as a beggar. When he pulls back the rags, he is described as “Odysseus master of craft and battle.” (Homer 439. 1) He then fights and kills all the suitors in his home in Ithaca with some help from his son.
By confessing to his lecherous crime, Proctor tries in vain to prove that Abigail is making false accusations to the court for the sole reason of harming Elizabeth. This is all for naught, however, as Elizabeth eventually damns them both when she unintentionally lies to protect her
When his sexuality became publicly known, he faced prosecution and punishment that essentially lead to his death. After learning this, one can see why Alan would lie and keep this secret. The same can be said of Mr. Miller and the characters in The Crucible. The reason one lies is to be accepted, and while this is not a commendable action, it is a necessary one. This ideal is revealed in Arthur Miller’s reluctance to publish The Crucible due to communist prosecution
In conclusion, was Brutus a betrayer or a patriot? Brutus was a betrayer because he is a liar and a killer. Brutus could have done anything else instead of killing Caesar for the sake of Rome. Caesar was Brutus’s friend but, Brutus was manipulated into thinking that Caesar was a horrible king that had to be stopped. If Brutus was Caesar’s friend he would have never killed him.
n The Odyssey, Odysseus deceiving people closest to him, including Eumaeus and Telemachus, shows how deception can easily fool others; even the ones that know you best. Due to the help from the Phaeacians, Odysseus, the king of Ithaca, has just returned home. With assistance from the goddess Athena, Odysseus turns into a beggar and goes to the swineherd Eumaeus to avoid the suitors at his palace. Eumaeus asks about his identity, and Odysseus tricks him by telling him that he is a man from Crete, who suffered many troubles in coming to Ithaca. Eventually, Telemachus, the son of Odysseus, comes back from Sparta and learns about the suitors’ plans to kill him.
Although Odysseus proved to have guile on the Island of the Cyclops, he made crucial mistakes. Odysseus’ first mistake was taking his men into the Cyclops cave. This brought upon a dreadful chain of events, for even Odysseus knew. In fact he said “I knew some towering brute would be upon us soon-- all outward power, a wild man, ignorant of Civility” (Homer 8). This quote states how Odysseus had already predicted that the presentence of him and his men would come down on them; but his selfishness made the lives of his men expendable.
The Hecatonchires or Centimanus is a Greek monster with 100 hands and 50 heads. The Hecatonchires is back to the first creatures of earth that eventually were mankind. They were children of Mother Earth and Father Heaven. Father Heaven was a poor father and hated the Hecatonchires.
The Odyssey is a story which teaches readers many morals and lessons throughout Odysseus' journeys. Odysseus and readers can learn many things from the alienating and enriching events that Odysseus experiences. One of these lessons is Odysseus’s time on Ogygia and how it forms desire for his wife. Another lesson Odysseus learned through hardship is piety and his loyal to the gods. The final lesson he learns through hardships is honesty, and how you should always tell others the truth.
