No matter what crime and it 's motive, they should still be regulated and justified. For this instance, Mrs. Patrick Maloney of "Lamb to the Slaughter" is guilty of murdering her own husband. Why would she do such a thing if she loved her husband so much? This leads to one of many points: Mrs. Maloney 's actions decided on impulse. Because she let her emotions control her, it resulted in bad decisions and the killing of her own husband.
Both the ancient and young deities attempt employing the power of language; the Furies to retain their ancient privilege of punishment, and the Olympian gods to spread a new form of justice. These instances of manipulation are seen in appeals to ethics, emotion, and logic. Clytemnestra faces the killer of her daughter, hiding her hatred in order to take his
Then tis most like the sovereignty will fall upon Macbeth” (39-42). Ross is right about one thing: ambition is to blame for Duncan's murder. He is wrong about the most important part, though. Here, he accuses Duncan's kids of killing their father when Macbeth is the one he should be accusing and not Duncan’s children. Even though Lady Macbeth has ambition like her husband she fears Macbeth’s nature “Glamis thou art, and Cawdor, and shalt be what thou art promised.
Revenge is shown throughout Arthur Miller’s The Crucible in very negative ways. Revenge is aimed at enemies, friends, even neighbors once Abigail and her group realized how much power they had, and for greedy self-interest. Everything was done for revenge, and it all started to cover up what Abigail and her sister had done. Abigail Williams used revenge on Elizabeth Proctor, because she hoped to split Elizabeth and John, so her love for John would be acceptable in society. Ann Putnam had accused Rebecca Nurse of the death of her seven babies.
Towards the beginning of the story when Creon wants to punish her for burying her brother, Antigone begs him to kill her, as “[His] talking is a great weariness.” (2.95) Not only is she trying to show disrespect by rushing the king, but is doing so arrogantly, putting herself above him for that brief moment. Although she starts off in the play as this naive and arrogant character, towards the end she develops a sort of humility and knowledge that she is doomed in a fate out of her control. She realizes fate is “Operative for ever, beyond man utterly. [Antigone] knew [she] must die...” (2.64). She accepts knowledge of her end, and lives on with it.
O 'Connor presents both the view of the Misfit as a fellow human being in pain, and the feeling of love for him, as a gift from God. The grandmother as a human being, is prone towards evil and selfishness, so she could never have come to feel such love without God 's help, as this man was going to kill her. This moment of grace is incredibly important in the story. The Misfit kills the grandmother, withdrawing from her and what seems foreign to him (human compassion), but the grandmother already had her moment of redemption. The grandmother grew in that moment of death more than she ever did in the little parts that we read about her life, and she dies in peace.
Woman Macbeth, on getting the letter, supports murder as she sees this is perhaps the main chance to accomplish their desire. Macbeth permits his wife to control him by blaming him for not being a "man" and communicates that she would slaughter her own child to have their craving satisfied. "I have given suck, and know How delicate 'tis to cherish the darling that drains me: I would, while it was grinning in my face, Have pluck 'd my areola from his boneless gums, and dash 'd the brains out, had I so sworn as you Have done to this". Yet Macbeth, being solid rationally and physically, does not put a stop to the homicide arrangement while his heart cautions him of the destruction staggering in the region. Rather than listening to his still, small voice, he stifles his blame and proceeds with his desire.
Queen Gertrude is emphasizing how painful and hurtful it is to hear what Hamlet has to say. She is pained and tormented by Hamlet’s view on her marriage to her late husband’s brother. Oxymoron has also been used when Hamlet says. “I must be cruel, only to the kind”. This shows that he was kind to Polonius in killing him though it was a cruel act.
If I die before my time, I say it is a gain”. (Sophocles, 16). This showed how strongly she felt she had the right to bury her brother and she did not care what the repercussions would be; even death. A great example that portrays how women were belittled during this time is when Creon is talking to his son Haemon. Haemon was trying to stop the death of these woman and Creon replied with “Don’t flatter me with “father, you woman’s slave”.
Hence using Lush’s view on Medea’s character as a devoted warrior suffering from Traumatic hardships in her experiences with the man she gave everything to, we can understand why she wanted revenge. Medea believes Jason owes her more than just the normal husband-wife obligations a man swears to when marrying a woman; in her view, she helped him be the man that he is and supported him throughout his heroic journey. Without her, Jason would not have succeeded in retrieving the Golden Fleece. Without her, he would not have had his father resurrected. Without her, Jason would have been suffering under the tyranny of his evil uncle Pelias.
