“Antigone” tells the struggles and hardships of two sisters named Antigone and Ismene who are trying to fight for what they believe in. Not only did Antigone tell the story of two sisters, but also told the story of Creon, the king of Thebes. Instead of living under the rules and regulations of others, people such as Antigone, Creon, and Teiresias chose to fight for what they believe in and prove that what they believe is morally right. Creon was well known for enforcing rigid rules and for punishing
Another way Mrs.Dubose is courageous is “I wanted you to see what real courage is ...see it through no matter what”(Lee 149). That takes courage and bravery to know she would willingly suffer just to be addiction free. All the time Jem was reading to her, she probably never heard a single word because she was focused on the clock and craving for morphine.So this is why I think her courageous and brave because she did not take the easy way out, she took the hard way and suffered, but she died a happy person because she achieved her goal to get rid of her addiction before she died. Jem and Scout did not know anything that she was going through they just thought she was some foul and mean person that disrespected their dad. But only understood when Atticus explained what she went through and the pain and
To justify this fighting and occasional killing of others, the villains must be evil. Westley’s main enemy in the novel, the prince, forced Westley’s love interest to marry him while Westley busied himself by ships; Westley has only this reason for fighting him. When the prince talks to Buttercup about marrying him, he does threaten her with death, but Westley does not know of this. The prince actually gives the most accurate description of himself in this scene, “I am your prince and I’m not that bad how could you rather be dead than married to me?” Even though the prince does do evil things later in the story, Westley didn’t know about the vast majority of his plans until after he starts plotting against him. Westley did some truly terrible things throughout The Princess Bride.
Although the couple did not die, they had a major impact on ending the feud. During the battle, Kovu and Kiara interfered and tried to divide the two sects. By giving a heartfelt speech about their absurdness, the two groups began realizing their mistake. Zira’s army turned against her and joined the Pridelanders showing their understanding of “we are one”. Both texts directly displayed the conquering force of love against the hatred amongst the
“For there to be betrayal, there would have to have been trust first.” This quote once said by Suzanne Collins, the arthur of the Hunger Games, relates to Sir Thomas Malory’s novel, Le Morte d’Arthur because many characters betray others in many different ways. More importantly, there is one thing in common, all of the betrayals had trust before there was betrayal. The love betrayal involves lovers having affairs or trying to kill their lover for power. Malory describes family betrayal as a member of the family who is betrayed by a relative of their family. Family betrayals cause family relations to brake and become strained.
Despite Violette Szabo being known for having a contrarian nature and going against the rules, she is the greatest female agent of world war II in European history because of her selflessness, dedication as an agent, and her rebellion against people 's expectations of her. One of the things that makes Violette Szabo special is that she is the one of the least known great young female operative agents. The unrecognized work she did was so important for ending the war, as well as paving a path for the recognition of unknown heroes in European history. Without the amazing work the nameless heroes such as Violette did, the success in the war wouldn 't have been
Alice is considered a feminist heroine because she manages to break the rules from society, like getting married or being told what to do. She rejects the female expectations and becomes a strong, confident and independent woman. We can see that Alice is oppressed, for example, when dancing with Hamish, she is delighted by her “visions” and he told her to “keep her visions to herself” or “when in doubt remain silent”. Alice has an “inner voice” that asks her for freedom and liberation. What stereotypes can you identify in this version?
Polynice betrayed his brother Eteocle when he did not want to cede the throne of Tebas, they died fighting each other and Creón became king of Tebas. He considered that Polynice did not deserve to be interred and he would punish who tried to do it. Making reference to the play, the first act describes with clarity what each of the two sisters, Antigone and Ismene, understand about power and justice. The discussion that they have is about to bury their brother Polynice or not. The position of Ismene (the oldest sister) is noticeably submissive, and obedient, even if she think the same as her sister, she believe that the correct thing is to do what her uncle is told because is the man, the leader, the king, he is who have the power, and the role of women is just to be married, be quiet and loyal.
Medea’s Personas “Love is a dangerous thing, Loving without any limit. Discredit and loss it can bring. But, oh, if the goddess should visit A love that is modest and right, No god is exquisite. Great lady, aim not at me Your gold and infallibly Passion-tipped poisoned delight.” (Euripides 359) Throughout the play, we get the idea that Medea and Jason once loved each other to the fullest. But there to me, Medea really does not know what being in love truly is.
Her actions, which go against King Kreon’s decree, speak volumes to what is most important to her- respecting her family. This rebellion is easy to sympathize with because she goes about rejecting an unjust order in a peaceful and respectable way. Antigone is a young, yet experienced character in the play. She is the daughter of Oedipus and Jocasta, who share one of the cruelest and most twisted stories in Greek mythology. On top of that, her brothers Eteokles and Polyneices killed each other in battle, over a land dispute.
He was underestimated by his enemies, but they regret that because now they are forever dead. Rikki Tikki’s biggest enemy underestimated the power and determination of Rikki Tikki. Nag and his wife named Nagaina were plotting to kill Rikki Tikki’s human family. Rikki Tikki knew he had to do whatever it took to protect his family. His human family took him in and he
Any “war” that involves Athena causes her to become very defensive and cruel towards other people. Athena had an extremely short temper and acted like a villain in spite of anger. Many people said, Athena was characterized as a very great hero in war (“Athena,” Encyclopedia Britannica). The people of Greece worshipped her for protecting them. War for her wasn’t just about killing people, she had weapons of her own like, “justice and skill” (“Athena,” Encyclopedia Britannica).
Macbeth’s lust for power has overtaken him, that is why he hired assassins to kill Banquo and his son Fleance. Out of spite of Fleance for being heir to the throne, but it backfires on him and Fleance escapes. Macbeth then became unstable after killing his best friend; seeing the deceased ghost and speaking of things that did not make any sense. Macbeth is deranged, losing himself because of the murders he had partaken in. ”Things without all remedy should be without regard: what 's done is done.” Anyone can see that he is behind the murders and blaming it on Lady Macbeth is not the right decision.
