She killed herself because she also loved Oedipus as a wife and mother, she thought this would have been better for him. The feeling of guilt overtook Jokasta because she knew Oedipus’ fate, slept with him, married him, had children with him, and lied to him. Oedipus is shocked to see her dead decided to “pull the long pins of gold on her gown, held them up, and punched them into eyes, back through the sockets” (Sophocles 1437-1440). He popped his eyes out so he wouldn’t have to see the evil he caused and the truth that he killed his father, married his mother and made children with her. He felt that he was the blame because his children won’t be able to get married in the future based on the curse that still exists with the family.
The Messenger recounts the image of the tragedy that was Antigone’s death by saying “Found we her, as she had been hanged by the neck,/ Fast in a strip’like loop of linen” (Sophocles 46). Through the vivid imagery, the reader notes the manner in which she died: suicide, an unexpected death. The dreadful image of “hanged by the neck” causes shock and sorrow as the audience is able to picture the scene and feel touched by her doomful fate. This produces in the spectator/reader a purgation of pity and fear also known as catharsis. Another image described is “loop of linen”, a symbol for Creon's denial of her right to wed.
In the movie they make her character beautiful and seductive. She is so attractive that even the strongest of men would fall to her and be defeated such as beowulf. But Grendel's mom is actually really evil and places curses on men that she seduces.

One example of her attacks is on line 411-414 it says “she Took a single victim and fled from the hall, running to the moors, discovered, but her supper assured, sheltered in her dripping claws.
John Proctor seemed well respected in the town except he had one deadly secret sin, this being a secret affair with Abigail Williams, who was one of the leading accusers in this story. Abigail’s goal is to kill John’s wife Elizabeth so they may get married. She does this by blaming Elizabeth for witchcraft. In this time period, the ones leading the accusations had the most power due to the fear exhibited by society. Even though John was not accused he confesses his affair with Abigail to Danforth saying, “I beg you, sir, I beg you-see what she is...She thinks to dance with me on my wife’s grave...God help me, I lusted, and there is a promise in such sweat.” (Miller ).
Daisy also kissed and even went as far to tell Gatsby she lived him in Tom’s house and far worse, in front of Tom. “She had told him that she loved him, and Tom Buchanan saw. He was astounded” (Fitzgerald 119). Not only does Daisy cheat on Tom, yet she also like her husband she does not care too much if her spouse willingly knows. Daisy’s interactions of adultery are undoubtedly immoral, yet they also leave a lasting impact upon the people she has hurt.

Macbeth, by William Shakespeare, is a dark play full of witchcraft and foreshadowing. Lady Macbeth showed scheming qualities throughout the play which had a lot of influence on her husband, Macbeth. Because of her controlling personality, Macbeth was scared to disappoint her. She was the one who positioned the idea of Duncan’s murder into her husband’s mind where he was succumbed by her supremacies and made the ultimate mistake. It was also her idea to place the blame of Duncan’s death on the soldiers.
One example is after Juliet's first encounter with Romeo at the party. When finding out the Romeo is from the enemy’s family, she tells her personal guardian, “ My only love, sprung from my only hate!” (Shakespeare III.v.147). This shows that even Juliet realizes that her true love rose from those who she was supposed to hate. This proves that violence can put an end to problems, because Romeo's problem of finding true love is solved due to the enmity of the families. Another example, of violence turning into love is when the prince, prince of Verona, tells the Montagues and Capulets that the heavens decided to punish them, due to the death of Romeo and Juliet.
Thy drug is quick.Thus with a kiss, I die and when Juliet wakes up from the potion and finds Romeo dead, she says her last words before she joins him to ‘’This is sheath; there, rust, and let me die.It is evident from this scene that hate is shown to be stronger than love because hate is the reason Romeo and Juliet died.The hate that their families had agencies each other was the cause of their death.If hate wasn’t stronger than love Romeo and Juliet wouldn’t have died.They wouldn't have to hide their relationship and marriage from their family. There are some people who argue that love is stronger than hate.This pain pieces of evidence would be in act two scene two when Romeo and Juliet stayed together even though their families hated each other.However, this argument simply is not valid because if love was stronger than hate Romeo and Juliet wouldn’t have died.Their parents hate each other, family wouldn’t have made Romeo and Juliet have to go to all the trouble of keeping their love a secret and end up dying because of their family hate towards each
In Act III, Scene 3, Romeo is talking to the Nurse about Juliet and says: “In what vile part of this anatomy / Doth my name lodge? Tell me, that I may sack / The hateful mansion” (Shakespeare III.3.106-108). Romeo threatens to cut out the part of his body where his name lies. Obviously, in doing this Romeo will kill himself in order to remove his name from himself. Not only does this particular threat of killing himself relate to him wanting to be in heaven with Juliet, it relates to separating from his family name.
Romeo 's personality of peace, loving, yet vengeful caused his own doom once he was exiled for killing Tybalt who killed Mercutio. Thus 'evidently causing pain for Juliet who lost both her lover and cousin. Juliet 's father arranging Juliet 's marriage to Paris made her mourning worse, already being married to Romeo yet being separated made her to reason with Friar Laurence. The plan that was supposed to reunite both Lovers indefinetly brought upon their own doom. Juliet herself drank the sleeping potion when Romeo was on his way earlier than anticipated, whom bought poison upon hearing of her "death" , planning to kill himslef on her tomb alongside her.
The last reason why Romeo was super lame for was because when he was at the monument he killed Paris without knowing that it was him.some evidence I found was when Paris said, “O, lamb slain (falls) if thou be merciful, open the tomb lay me with lady Juliet.” I also found some other evidence when Romeo said, “In faith I will, let me peruse this face… Mercutio 's kinsman, noble county paris. Another reason of why Romeo was so blame for was when he said, “Ha banishment? Be merciful say “death” for exile hath more terror in his look, much more than death. Do not say “banishment” he said this when Friar Laurence told him that he was banished from Verona for killing Tybalt in a sword fight and for killing county Paris. All in all these are some reasons for why to blame Romeo in the play Romeo and Juliet.
Lady Macbeth accuses her husband saying “Art thou afeard/ To be the same in thine own act and valour… And live a coward in thine own esteem” (1.7.40-41, 46) at which Macbeth takes great insult. To prove to Lady Macbeth wrong, Macbeth finally agrees on the murder of Duncan. Macbeth wants to prove to Lady Macbeth that he has the courage to kill Duncan and he is very manly and will not stop until Duncan is dead. Once he kills Duncan Macbeth begins to change mentally and emotionally. Macbeth’s hallucinations are the product of fear and guilt.
Macbeth’s thoughts with his deep desires dismay him and he fails to share them openly so he sends a letter to Lady Macbeth clarifying the situation he is in. When Lady Macbeth receives the letter, she encourages murder as she sees that this is the only chance to accomplish their ambition. Lady Macbeth says, “I have given suck, and know how tender ‘tis to love the babe that milks me: I would, while it was smiling in my face, Have pluck’d my nipple from his boneless gums, And dash’d the brains out, Had I sworn as you Have done this” (1.7.59-64). Macbeth allows his wife, Lady Macbeth, to manipulate him by condemning him of not being ‘man’ enough and states that she will kill her own baby for the sake of having their desire fulfilled. Lady Macbeth also uses the power of her words to convince Macbeth to kill the king by also giving Macbeth a boost of confidence.
Both Emilia and Desdemona have a battle against the men. Previously shown, they both go about it in different ways. But in the end both die from love.
