Creon almost seemed like he wanted Haimon to be angry so he put Antigone in the vault. He couldn’t see that Haemon was in love and Antigone was just trying to honor the dead because of his hubris. Creon also says, “My own blind heart has brought me from darkness to final darkness.” This shows he knows he didn’t use his intelligence to solve his problems. He was already heading the wrong direction with his pride and it finally was too much. Creon’s hubris has not let him effectively deal with his
Even though it was not directly against her, it still hurt her and that was still against the wishes of the ghost of his father. There is many example of betrayal of trust in this play but Hamlet betraying his father’s ghost may be one that is not as well noticed. Yes his father may be dead, but he is still given a mission of just killing his uncle without harming others and not to harm his mother. This is something
Being cruel and harsh can hurt people’s feelings and mess with their emotions. Theodore Laurence acted impulsively when he embarrassed Margaret March because he got irritated from Josephine for not telling him a secret. When Theodore figured out that Josephine was keeping a secret from him about her sister Margaret and his tutor’s, John Brooke, relationship, he decided to pull a prank. He sent love letters to Margaret as if he was John Brooke himself. Margaret found out and was embarrassed and angry simultaneously.
Hamlet and Ophelia “This was sometime a paradox, but now the time gives it proof. I did love you once… I loved you not” (3.1.114,119). Confusion clouds the audience’s judgement reading this quote from Hamlet. His paradox insinuates that he is insane and truly did not love her. Contrary to belief though, this quote was a way to set his “mousetrap” and force her to be in the background of his grand scheme.
She becomes scared and runs out of the room. In the book, Daisy is shocked at what is revealed about Gatsby's business, but never becomes afraid of him. “ It passed, and he began to talk excitedly to Daisy, denying everything, defending his name against accusations that had not been made. But with every word she was drawing further and further into herself, so he gave that up, and only the dead dream fought on as the afternoon slipped away...”(Fitzgerald). On the other hand, Baz Luhrmann paints Gatsby as a violent and aggressive character.
In addition to that, Odysseus is less merciful to others who have wronged him while Harry Potter, though he has suffered much, shows great mercy. Odysseus as soon as he comes home tells his son, “ I came to this wild place, directed by Athena, so that we might lay plans to kill our enemies” ( Homer 1080-1082). Odysseus had such vengeance on his mind that he would start planning as soon as he had come home, yet it seemed that he would spare not one of them, no matter how great or little their involvement. Harry Potter, on the other hand, could have hunted down the rest of Voldemort’s followers, but he left them alone to look for forgiveness and what is right. Finally, Odysseus was a great fighter known for his bow and arrow skills while Harry Potter was just a wizard.
When he was told that Myrtle was killed in a hit and run he became very angry at what happened and began to say “The God Damn coward! He whimpered. He didn 't even stop his car.”(Fitzgerald 149). This is when he became even more angry because he felt that Gatsby killed Myrtle on purpose to get back at him because he was having an affair with her. He then told George that the yellow car he was driving earlier wasn 't his and he then told him it was Gatsby.
This displays the theme because Macbeth has not confessed to the crime of murdering Banquo, the terror and remorse is bottled up inside of him and is slowly creeping out to haunt him. The presence of the ghost is driving Macbeth insane and he is trying to reassure himself that Banquo’s ghost cannot not doing anything to harm him since it
The narrator in “The Tell-Tale Heart” thought he was hearing the guy’s heart beat after he had killed him. This couldn’t be possible because he cut the guy up and there was no way that his heart could still be beating. He was hearing this “heart-beat” because he was feeling guilty from killing the old man. “...it is the beating of his hideous heart.” The people in the “The Masque of the Red Death” thought they were seeing a masked person at the party that was killing everyone but in my opinion I think they were imaging it. I think they were imaging it because it never describes the person in the story.
Hence, the common themes that the works both have are betrayal, hurt, and the madness of the characters showcasing their pain to the world. In Hamlet and False Pretense, the characters each struggle with a betrayal that befalls them. Hamlet is quick to note his once childhood friends Rosencrantz and Guildenstern have turned against him, saying, “[There’s letters sealed; and my two schoolfellows, Whom I will trust as I will adders fanged…” understanding that he can no longer rely on them (Shakespeare 3.4 225-226). Likewise, in False Pretense, the song’s narrator deals with a betrayal from someone close to them. The narrator’s disbelief is shown through their statement of “The world’s got a funny
