Even though they are outnumbered by suitors and surrounded by them, he still puts everyone in danger by attacking them, and his only concern is himself and his looming status of being king again. He does not even consider their side of the story, and that they may have been thinking that Odysseus was dead, and it was only right to marry Penelope. The other side may point out that Odysseus actually cares
Karma affects both the good and bad sides. Hagrid, who is a half-giant, is slandered and mistrusted by Umbridge. Because Giants have violent natures, they have been nearly eradicated by the ministry and the few survivors left have gone into hiding in the mountains. Therefore, Umbridge fired Hagrid and sent five Ministry of Magic officials in case force was needed to subdue the “dangerous” and “filthy half-breed”. Centaurs are highly intelligent, but do not wish to mingle with humans to be “servants or playthings” become angry when their territory is restricted by the Ministry.
However, when he switched to the dark side, so he could try and save Padme from dying as the Chancellor promised, he became this evil and wicked man. He goes to the Jedi temple ready to kill all the Jedis’ because Palpatine told him that the Jedi are trying to overthrow the Republic and it’s his responsibility to bring peace to the galaxy and eliminate this threat. This is definitely which led to the audience not wanting to empathize with him anymore. If Padme was to live in the end, no one would’ve empathized with Anakin because of his vicious actions, and now there’s definitely no one that’s empathizing with Anakin because he couldn’t even save Padme in the end. For Oedipus, it was him killing his father and marrying his mother because of the prophecy that couldn’t be escaped since all the actions he was trying to make to escape the prophecy are what caused it.
His loyalty to his power becomes priority over his family, when he decrees his nephews burial illegal. Antigone also falls victim to the excessive force and jaded complexity of her uncle, when he prioritizes patriarchal standards and his law over her moral act of goodness and makes it known that, “while I’m alive, no woman is going to lord it over me” (590). All the trouble Creon put his family through just to save face and show his dominance ends up destroying what was left of his family just to avoid, “never be rated inferior to a woman, never”
They were hired to take Buttercup across the Florin Channel to the neighboring country of Guilder to kill her. This would then provide the Prince with the perfect excuse to start a war with Guilder. The plan was ruined, however, when a mysterious man dressed entirely in black defeated the Sicilian Crowd and saved Buttercup. Soon after this, the mysterious stranger revealed to Buttercup that he was actually Westley, Buttercup’s true love who she thought died three years earlier. Now united with Buttercup, Westley was forced to evade the Prince and his men.
He ended so many innocent lives just because the witches got to him and messed with his head. Not only did the witches mess with his head but so did Lady Macbeth because she tells Macbeth that they can not wait much longer for Macbeth to be crowned king of scotland so she tells him to kill Duncan.
He had his men divide the women equally and told them to share them all. Odysseus stayed on an island with the time distorting goddess Calypso who loved Odysseus a lot and didn’t want him to leave so he decided to stay instead of going home he stayed there until he wanted to go back home. “I stormed the place and killed the men who fought. Plunder we took, and we took, and we enslaved the women, to make division, equal shares to all.” I think that Odysseus does not deserve to be a literary hero because he has done so many bad things to so many people that didn’t deserve to be hurt or killed. This is worth consideration because Odysseus doesn’t deserve to be a literary hero because of how he treated his men and others without respect, kindness, bravery, and he definitely did not put his life on the line to save others he put others lives’ on the line to save his
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.
Macbeth is already having second thoughts about killing Duncan, but Lady Macbeth refuses to allow him to give up the opportunity to be king by attacking his manhood, she says: “When you durst do it, then you are a man” (1.7.49). Apart from the preternatural forces, Lady Macbeth questions Macbeth’s manliness, knowing that it is the greatest insult she can direct at him as he is a warrior above everything. She believes in the witches’ predictions as she says: “Which fate and metaphysical aid doth seem to have thee crowned withal” (1.5.28-29). It is by means of attacking his manhood, something fundamental to his notion of himself as a warrior, that Lady Macbeth manipulates her husband, affecting his mental state and leading to Duncan’s murder. Macbeth is aware of his frame of mind when he sees the dagger as he says: “Is this a dagger which I see before me, the handle toward my hand?
Eventually, all that caught up with him after they were planning to attack Macbeth. Macduff comes to fight, he and he is the one to kill Macbeth and is crowned king. Another important one that we have him written down with is Self-Isolation. Our client felt like he could not be around people anymore and anybody who he was with was out to get him. He stop confiding in his wife and started to make moves without her help or her say so.
The punishment given by Odysseus to the wooers that had overrun his kingdom during his absence was death. I believe there were many reasons he was justified for his actions. Odysseus knew he could not just return home and claim his kingdom after all these years and with all of the things that were happening. There were many wooers that were no good, arrogant and deceitful and only there to claim his wife and home without any regard for the kingdom. There were even plans made by one, Antinous, to kill Telemachus, their son due to his heir to the throne.
Telemachus releases his pent-up testosterone to take care of a problem that he should have dealt with a while ago, the suitors. “Suitors plague my mother-against her will-/… By god, it’s intolerable, what they do-disgrace,/ my house a shambles!” (Homer. 2. 55- 68) is an excerpt from Telemachus’ speech to rid the suitors. He literally tells the suitors that they are leeches and they lack the guts to properly ask for his mother’s hand in marriage by asking her father.
