Also, Creon describes how easily he believes it will be to break Antigone’s willed with all the metaphors used. He also shows how far above her he thinks himself by saying “she had much to learn”.

By analyzing Roger’s evolving characterization throughout the novel, Golding conveys the message that human beings must have rules, authority and government in order to maintain a stable environment. As Roger gains the feeling of superiority, he progressively becomes more violent and reveals his dark side.

In V for Vendetta, V seeks revenge against the Norsefire regime for past wrong-doings, particularly events that were orchestrated by members of the very same party and their oppressive control over the people of London.
