Through his inability to suppress his erratic behavior and overcome his overwhelming sense of guilt, he proves that he is just like the rest of humanity. He denies the idea that he not superior. He continues to justify the murders in effort to prevent him from losing his conception of himself as a
Tybalt does not see things peaceful like Benvolio. He prefers violence over peace and pretends to be judge, jury, and executioner for the Capulets. Tybalt’s pride in his name causes much violence and the deaths of many characters. The houses’ pride in their names affects everyone around them but they are too caught up in their own feud to care. An example of the effect the feud has on others is Mercutio.
Mariam also suffered the torments imposed on her by the men in her life, sharing a similar fate as her mother, Nana, in a way. Nevertheless, Mariam is not a fallen warrior but a victor. Contrasting from Nana, Mariam fought her battle with resistance rather than endurance. She broke free of the oppressive culture and realized her self-worth in the end. Fariba is one of first non-submissive females of the novel and was portrayed as the woman with a progressive mindset.
There is something wrong with his appearance; something displeasing, something down-right detestable. I never saw a man I so disliked, and yet I scarce know why.” (Stevenson 5). It is no accident that Enfield depicted Hyde as a being of displeasing and repulsive appearance. Hyde is a manifestation of everything vicious and evil in human nature, so such well-mannered and benign person as Enfield could not like it. It is an important moment that describes how people see the evil in its pure form.
That guilt he felt at the end, the actions he took during, and the prevention he tried before all are the signature marks of a good person put under unbearable stress and in situations that no 10 year old should have to deal with. John Kessel said “Ender is at heart a pacifist. When Dink justifies Ender’s beating up Bonzo (Bonzo meant to kill Ender, Bonzo was a troublemaker, he had superior strength and size), Ender breaks down and cries. “I didn’t want to hurt him!” he insists. “Why didn’t he just leave me alone!”(p. 233) (p7) Nothing could be closer to the
Nevertheless, Montresor gets ultimate revenge since he murdered Fortunato making the reader’s feel shocked. The compassion readers feel is for Fortunato for the reason that he should not have got that brutal way to die. Instead, Montresor should have just confronted him and worked things out. Montresor explains, “But the very definitiveness with which it was resolved precluded the idea of risk” (1). Before Montresor said this, he explained how he will not tolerate with a bully.
Even though they are supporting a different cause. Both characters stand up for what is the right thing. In Crash the Main character Abby is really strong in her belief even though she is just doing it for being famous, she is just protesting to be famous.

Even though, one of the biggest changes is that the tyrant Creón now is a dictator even more perverse and cruel than in “Antigone”. Moreover, in the act of love and loyalty to her friends Antígona is considers a traitor to the city and the punishment for this is death unless she confesses to her crimes. Previously, Antígona challenges the government and Creón himself when she buries the two brothers Tavares in their own land. They were supposed to be exposed to the public eye as a warning for everyone who dare to defy Creón’s dictatorship. One of the best traits of Antígona is her stubbornness and strength of her heart to not let anyone manipulate her in her way to the true goal which is to see justice.
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
Instead of being kind and doing whatever it takes to keep men happy, she is described as “the devil” and having “evil in every pocket (192).” The reason for it is because she does not act like a woman from her era, she is difficult and, in some cases, unpleasant to be around, traits not usually associated with women of the 1950s. Within the novel she steals thirty thousand dollars, manipulates and even kills. She is depicted as being “death herself (252)” because of how easily she breaks out of the mold that is pictured when thinking of women in the 1950s. Despite how much she seems to cross that line, she is also very feminine and alluring. Easy describes her flaws, such as eyes that are too close together as endearing and adding to her façade of a vulnerable damsel in distress.
