Admittedly, Caesar could be considered the tragic hero due to his realization of his wrongdoings when he sees Brutus after being stabbed. However, Caesar never fully accepted responsibility for his actions before he died, unlike Brutus. Brutus’s dying words are, “Caesar, now be still. I killed thee with half so good a will (V.v.50-51).” These words confirm that Brutus recognizes that killing Caesar wasn’t the best course of action. Within these final words, we also see Brutus’s regret for what
Hamartia, peripetia, and catharsis are the significant traits that led to the grievous ending of Gatsby’s life.

Greif from characters like Nick and Owl Eyes frame the realness of Gatsby’s death and shows how truly tragic it is.

We see Lady Macbeth shrink from the killing and Macbeth go through with it. We, as the audience, begin to dislike Macbeth for caving to the will of his wife and giving in to the murder of a benevolent king. After this we see Macbeth take the throne because Duncan’s sons flee the country for fear of their lives. Our dislike for Macbeth and Lady Macbeth only grows stronger. Macbeth for what he continues to do and Lady Macbeth for what she caused.
One event caused by Antigone is the fight between her and Ismene, her sister. Antigone asks Ismene to break the law with her by burying Polyneices, their brother. Ismene does the logical thing and chooses to not break the law her uncle put in place. Ismene says in the play: “I have no strength / To break laws that were made for the public good” (prologue. i.
On the other hand, Antigone may be prideful, but not like her father; instead she is more arrogant towards her actions that she thinks is just. For instance, in the illegal act of burying her brother, Antigone doesn’t show any guilt as to committing the offence, she instead tells her uncle “I should have praise and honor for what I have done. All these men here would praise me were their lips not frozen shut with fear of you.” This is a bold statement said by Antigone as she tells her uncle that he is wrong, for leaving her brother unburied and that she acted in virtue not haste for what he had done. In saying this Antigone shows that she is prideful in what she had done and that others will agree with her upon it. However, Antigone is not
Creon imprisons her and she kills herself. Meanwhile, not realizing Antigone’s death, the blind prophetTiresias, Haemon (Creon’s son) and the Chorus pleaded with Creon to release Antigone and change his laws. Creon finally agrees, but in an untimely manner, finds Antigone dead in the cave. Out of despair, Haemon and Creon’s wife killed themselves, and Creon is left destress and miserable.

The play Antigone is about a family with some major family problems. The two main characters are mostly Antigone and Creon, who is also Antigone’s uncle. At the start of the play Creon becomes the new king and decides that Antigone’s brother Polyneices should not have a proper burial, because he rebelled against the city. This makes Antigone mad and she decides that she is going to bury Polyneices. Creon finds out that someone buried Polyneices and says that the person should be put to death, because they broke the King’s new rules.
However, this person that is not to be buried is Polyneices, brother of Antigone. She is so enraged with the fact that her brother will not be granted passage to the gods, she rebels. She fights the law Creon made, standing by the fact that everyone deserves a proper burial. Antigone wins in the end and Polyneices is buried, even at the cost of her own life. Theme If a law is unjust, it is our duty as a people to rebel for the greater good of the community.
man supports the central idea that everyone isn’t always how they seem to be and this is shown because when you’re friends with someone their true identity will eventually reveal itself at some point in time. “Iago: I’m bleeding, but you didn’t kill me.” “Othello: I’m not sorry, either. I want you to live, since to me, death is happiness.” (Act 5, Scene 2, Page 16) Othello wanted Iago to live miserable since he made Othello commit murder to someone who was completely innocent and who he loved dearly. Nobody would really think that Iago was that devious to make someone do that. “Othello: I believe you, and I ask you to forgive me.
"From the news that Zetsu has gathered for me.. Sasori died after Deidara had left him with the pink-haired kunoichi and elderly woman. The red-haired jinchuriki was rescued by his comrades and later revived. It is a great accomplishment for us to have finally caught one of the nine jinchuriki, but an even greater /failure/ to have lost one of our most powerful teammates.. I hope that you all mourn for Sasori 's death," Pein went silent for a moment, and Deidara hung his head down. From the other member 's perspective, he could be perceived as sad, but in reality he was trying his hardest to contain the smirk that wanted to spread across his cheeks.
Lastly, Proctor knew he was going to die and he was happy because he had confessed of his sins and he was a clean man in his own eyes and Elizabeth’s. She knows how he feels about committing the terrible sins he has in the past. Elizabeth tells proctor “do as you will, do as you will” giving him release to decide for himselfbecause she knows what he is going through and doesn’t want to influence him to live the way she wants him to. She wants him to stay because she loves him but she knows that he cannot admit to the life of lies that he is accused of doing (Miller 209). In conclusion, people in The Crucible lie for their personal interests, their tunnel vision haunts them in the sense that it comes back to get them in the end.
Sinner are forced to live with their sins for the rest of their lives, that is a moral consequence they must live with. Sin may not be affecting a person on the outside, but they will continue to feel its effect on the inside. Nathaniel Hawthorn 's The Scarlet Letter gives insight on how sin can affect a person without giving any outward appearance. This is shown when Reverend Dimmesdale becomes frail and dies because of the sin he had committed. Dimmesdale exclaims “God knows; and He is merciful!
This is the point where Macbeth says “Life’s but a walking shadow...” He says this because he just lost the love of his life and he does not know how to handle it.

The Main characters in Macbeth are: Macbeth, Lady macbeth, King Duncan, Banquo, Macduff, and the three witches.
