“With that he trained a stabbing arrow on Antinous … just lifting a gorgeous golden loving-cup in his hands, just tilting the two-handled goblet back to his lips, about to drain the wine—and slaughter the last thing on the suitor’s mind” (Homer 22.8). Not to mention the fact that murder is a terrible thing for any character to do, but Homer exaggerates the brutality of the murder. In doing so, Homer opens the reader’s eyes to a whole new perspective of Odysseus and his character. In summary, Homer greatly focuses on the many qualities of Odysseus, allowing the reader to form an honest
Romeo took his own particular life subsequently he is to be blamed. In conclusion there are various ways that we, the perusers can stick the blame on any of these characters. Romeo explodes the whole time all through the play and book, these exercises finally lead him to his own specific death. Juliet Is so head over heels in reverence with Romeo that she cuts herself with Romeo's cutting edge when she see's that he is dead. To wrap things up, Tybalt is the reason everyone fails miserably in light of the fact that without him there would've been no fight and the story would've been sans
He married his sister in law and had to sin much more in order to cover his tracks(Act 1, Scene 5, line 44). The new king was even too lazy to cover his own lies and protect himself, which causes much heartbreak in the end. The king kills his new wife because he was too lazy to kill young Hamlet himself(Act 5, scene 2, line 316). The king tried to get Laertes to kill Hamlet to protect himself. As a backup plan, he mixes a poison in hopes that Hamlet would drink it.
In the play, Hamlet by Shakespeare, the noble Hamlet claims to be feigning great madness. However, the portrayal of a crazy madman is so intense and so convincing that Hamlet himself begins to actually slip into a great magnitude of insanity at certain moments in the amazing play. Some example of Hamlet actually slipping into madness are when, he kills the wise Polonius when Hamlet finds him spying on him while he is having a conversation with his mother. The second example of him going into insanity is when he performs the great speech about whether to be or not to be. The last example of him falling into a great state of insanity is when he kills himself after he battles Laertes to the death, and ends up drinking the same poison himself
Then Romeo sets out in his sorrow to an apothecary and says, “Come hither, man. I see that thou art poor: hold, there is forty ducats: let me have a dram of poison, such soon-speeding gear as will disperse itself through all the veins that the life-weary taker may fall dead and that the trunk may be discharged of breath as violently as hasty powder fired doth hurry from the fatal cannon 's womb.” These quotes show you that Romeo is planning to kill himself because of Juliet faking her death, which Romeo doesn’t know about. In the end, Romeo kills himself by poison and dies by Juliet and then Juliet stabs herself and dies when she finds Romeo dead. This is truly a tragic story because of the deaths of these two young lovers because of one of Tybalt’s
One case in Act V “Let me have A dram of poison, such soon-speeding gear As will disperse itself through all the veins That the life-weary taker may fall dead”,(Shakespeare 469). Romeo impulsively wanted poison to kill himself without understanding the whole of the situation. His action causes not only himself death but this influence Juliet to kills herself due to the loss of her love Romeo. “ Impulsivity generally drops throughout life, starting at about age 10, but this love of the thrill peaks at around age 15”,(Dobbs 4). Both Romeo and Juliet are under this age so they both seek the thrill of love.
That's why your brother is the favourite”, nevermind that you drive her to her appointments. Cinna the Poet's untimely death is a way of humourously playing with dangerous escalation; it is a little point of comedy. Without this instance, Power's world delves straight into the heaviness of war and there is no moment of pause before diving into “A battle...sharp, and ugly.” (page 42) This is how she sets up the rest of the world for the many deaths about to occur. Powers' J. Caesar is ,”... a world melted away from what we recognize today but has been rebuilt.” (page i) The ways in which she marries her setting to the script are varied. In her use of Shakespeare's original text we witness new roles for characters.
This leads the audience to the forlorn conclusion that Macbeth has reached a level of madness that surpasses even the sociopathic desires of his wife. Macbeth’s delusion begins far before he kills Duncan. Right before he commits the murder he experiences a vivid hallucination of a dagger floating through the mist towards him, he then proceeds to state, “Art thou not, fatal vision, sensible to feeling as to sight? or art thou but a dagger of the mind, a false creation, proceeding from the heat-oppressed brain? I see thee yet, in form as palpable as this which now I draw.” (Shakespeare: Act 2-Scene 1).
It pains me to remember a time when we both had smiles upon our faces, and love running through our veins - king and queen of the night. Now I can only feel the gaping hole of grief in my heart, filling me with the desire to drink the vile poison that the apothecary gave me. I came into this hollow tomb to end this misery, but my hands have been stained ruby red with yet another’s blood in the process. Valiant Paris, he was nothing more than another one of fortune’s fools, dragged into this hell called earth. I knew Juliet and
I’ll touch my point/With this contagion, that if I gall him slightly/It may be death”(author). Another quote that goes with Ego that is used is “...We’ll make a solemn wager on your cunnings.—/I ha ’t! When in your motion you are hot and dry,/As make your bouts more violent to that end,/And that he calls for drink, I’ll have prepared him/A chalice for the nonce, whereon but sipping,/If he by chance escape your venomed stuck”(author). Both these quotes show Ego because King Claudius is planning on ways to kill Hamlet and he has a backup plan just Incase the first plan is unsuccessful. A quote I have that goes with Superego is when King Claudius says “Let’s further think of this,/Weigh what convenience both of time and means/May fit us to our shape.
