Also, another example of Macbeth being cruel s when he snt the murders to kill macduff's family. The play says,¨(Stabbing him) what, you egg Young fry of treachery! He has killed me, mother. Run away, I pray you!¨ (IV.ii.77). This is showing that Macbeth had the murderers kill the little boy in front of his mother.
He sleeps with other women while he is married to Penelope, which in modern standards, that would be an affair and a horrible thing to do. In conclusion, Odysseus doesn’t always tell the truth, is egocentric, and cheats on his wife. Back then people only saw the good things he did that brought him home safely but it isn’t like that anymore. Odysseus in the eyes of modern day people, does many things that wouldn’t display him as a hero in any
You know that one story Romeo and Juliet? Yeah? Well Tybalt is the one that got everyone killed. Tybalt is the character most to blame for the tragic events in Romeo and Juliet because he killed Mercutio, which made Romeo avenge him, which made him get sent away. Then Juliet's dad was going to make her married soon because he got himself killed.
He was quick to anger and couldn’t be reasoned with. When he found out someone had covered the body of Polyneices, he threatened to kill the sentry that had brought the message, even though he did nothing. When Antigone was brought to him, he didn’t hesitate in sentencing her to death. He sentenced his own niece to death for disobeying him. When Haimon tries to change his mind, imploring him to consider how his actions may hurt him since he is supposed to marry Antigone, Creon replies: “Let her find her husband in Hell!
Odysseus shows considerable hubris when he brags to King Alconis about slaughtering the small village of Ismarus. Odysseus claims that he and his men “stormed that place,” enslaved the women, and slaughtered those who fought. (Homer 43). Due to Odysseus’ arrogant decision to assault Ismarus, a few of his men died. This demonstrates how arrogance and the hunger for victory will lead to certain death.
He contradicts himself when talking to Polyphemus about eating his own guests because in reality, he most likely would´ve killed anyone who stepped foot into his home. ¨That left Odysseus waiting in his hall as Athena helped him plot the slaughter of the suitors.¨ (19. 1-2) This quote shows that Athena is in on Odysseus wanting to kill all of the suitors, which can be the reason why
Emilia knows that Othello believes that Desdemona has cheated on him with Cassio, but the interesting factor is that Emilia knows that is not true as she arguably knows Desdemona the most out of all the characters. Desdemona's isolation prior to her death is “ attributable to the onlookers' nonintervention” (Vanita 343). Emilia was aware of the abuse that Othello put upon Desdemona even though she knew the accusations against her were false “For if she be not honest, chaste and true,/ There’s no man happy; the purest of their wives/ Is foul slander” (Shakespeare 4.2.18-20) but still leaves Desdemona in isolation with Othello, even though she was aware of what he believed. When Othello confronts Desdemona with the claims of cheating Othello commands Emilia to “Leave Procreants alone and shut the door;/ Cough or cry “hem”
The next major thing Macbeth does is hire those same three murderers to kill Macduff, because the witches said that Macduff is someone Macbeth should be afraid of. So when the Murderers go to kill Macduff they find him not at his house and then decide to kill his wife and kids. This is where the story goes bad for Macbeth and it is his end. The story is ending with Macduff leading an army to defeat Macbeth, but every soldier that reaches Macbeth gets killed by him Because Macbeth is the best fighter around. But when Macduff gets there Macbeth starts to slips up.
Upon hearing Macduff has fled to England to fetch Malcolm, Macbeth has Macduff’s entire household slaughtered. Everyone who lived in the house owned by Macduff was killed; all the kids, his wife, even the servants. In conclusion, I believe Macbeth should get the death penalty for his actions against not only the king, but all the other innocent people he killed or had killed. Macbeth was not criminally insane, he was just
Creon is stubborn and evil on his part for sentencing her to such a cruel way to die, but this conflict ultimately leads to his demise. Another instance where Antigone states that her action was justified was when said that, “If this is viewed amongst the gods as something fine, I’ll find out, after suffering, that I was wrong; but if these men are wrong, may what they suffer be as evil as the unjust things they do to me.” (Sophocles, 58). Antigone is suffering and hurt by the fact that her just action lead to her incarceration and ultimately her death. It is sad that by trying to do something right by her own family, she lost her life. The decision to save her brother was justified by her actions leading up to her death.
Armstrong agrees because he is told that they were trapping the murder. Then he killed Mr, Rogers, while he is out chopping sticks. In the same day he killed Emily Brent by injecting her with cyanide. Armstrong then helped him fake his death, they made Vera first scream, which distracted everyone, then Wargrave dressed up and pretend that was shot, then when Armstrong inspects Wargrave he lies and says that he is
(20-21)”. The Nurse acquired the sensibility that Medea lacked. Even if Medea’s actions can be somewhat rationalized or explained, murdering the aforesaid kids is unjustifiable. Although it can be argued that Medea wasn’t the only character with a damaged moral compass. Jason used Medea for his own personal gain and shortly disowned her which is a large transgression.
For example, one of Randy’s friends, Justine was ashamed for being a virgin and wanted Randy to have sex with her because no one else in the school seemed willing enough to do the job. I think that the reason why Randy performed this task was because he was falling under the pressure of heteronormativity. Maybe he was thinking that his sexual urges would disappear? But the aftermath of losing his virginity, made him lose his
