With friendship and trust comes betrayal. ‘Betrayal’, a word that is so harsh yet it still exists. Here, to quote “It’s better to have an enemy who slaps you in the face than have a friend who stabs you in the back” (Abraham). By now you must have guessed that my topic is friendship and betrayal. Betrayal is simply an act of disloyalty and still exists from March 15, 44 BC when Caesar was killed by his loyal and best friend Brutus till now 2016 when many people face the worst of betrayal.
He wanted to defeat the British in every way but he had lost the support and respect of his clansman because of his actions.

The soldier hates the war, he says “I died in hell”, this implies that the honorable death that the young men believed in, was actually an inglorious death for an empty cause. All the soldiers received in return for their lives was a gilded name on a memorial tablet, where people probably wont even see it. He felt that the squire didn 't appreciate how much he risked for his country, for the people he loved, for the squire himself, "Two bleeding years I fought in France, for Squire: I suffered anguish that he 's never guessed". The words ‘suffered’ and ‘anguish ' shows the soldiers’ emotional feeling towards the war, it shows how angry and sad he feels about what is happening and that he has been through a lot. The squire stays safe at home and did not go to war; there is an implication that he was fully aware of the danger, “I suffered anguish that he’s never guessed”, this shows that the Squire has never felt anything like this before but he knows that the soldiers feel it.
A People’s History of Ancient Rome and political scientist, Michael Parenti, stated that Caesar’s assassination “marked a turning point in the history of Rome. It set in motion a civil war and put an end to whatever democracy there had been” (Parenti 2). Caesar’s assassination harmed Rome and did not help their political situation at all. It confused and infuriated the working class because they had lost their beloved king to greedy senators without a real explanation. In Meller and McGee’s book they state that instead of supporting the conspiracy, the “assassination did help Caesar’s reputation” (Meller and McGee 78).

This applies to the story not by Friar blaming himself but Friar believes that Romeo and Juliet and even their families believe that he is the whole reason for all this misery.Friar stating this causes a ripple in the tone because no one would ever think they would be hearing a priest say this.
MacQueen, secretary to Mr. Ratchett and co-murderer, states in his interview, "If ever a man deserved what he got, Ratchett or Cassetti is the man. I 'm rejoiced at his end. Such a man wasn 't fit to live!"

He hated himself. He had loved Martha more than his men, and as consequence Lavender was now dead.” (Tim O’Brien 346) Lt. Jimmy Cross knew that with this burden he could never forgive himself. Lt. Jimmy Cross wasn’t the only one who carried guilt, but all the soldiers in general.“They carried the soldier’s greatest fear, which was the fear of blushing. Men killed, and died, because they were embarrassed not to.” (Tim O’Brien 349) and the things “They carried all they could bear, and then some, including a silent awe for the terrible power of the things they carried.” (Tim O’Brien 341) They knew that the weapons they were carrying was the main cause of mass destruction and the power was through the tip of their
This quote defines what a tragic hero genuinely is. They are prominent for being fair, but they are brought down by their own imperfections.
