I just couldn 't believe that our marriage was coming to an end. Ever since we moved to Timbuktu a month ago, everything has changed. He has become increasingly distant, so much so that I feel like I knew not the man that I married. When we first met in Cairo, he was such a nice young man who was studying law.

It is not until he is introduced to the compilation of characters that help shape his understanding that “His own life was no longer a single story but part of a mural, which was a falling together of accomplices”. Once he realizes this he confronts the dictating power, Rowland Harris, who he blames for Alice's death and threaten to blow up the Tunnel he help build and many others died in. In this scene, Patrick is able to name himself “I’m Patrick Lewis”. The presence light and darkness in this scene give Patrick to escape the boundaries of his working class title and force Harris to hear the story of Alice. This is important as it empowers him to assume the role of Hana’s father.

In “Oedipus the King,” Oedipus is confronted with a plague that threatens to destroy Thebes; to save the city, he has to discover who murdered the previous king, Lauis, and banish them. He is determined to find the truth, but his determination and drive backfire on him and ultimately lead to his destruction. This had a strong, eye-opening impact on me because I see qualities of myself in Oedipus, and I sympathize with his emotions throughout the play as he uncovers the truth about his identity. When Oedipus’ brother, Creon, brings news from an oracle about what caused the plague, Oedipus says “[he’ll] do everything” (1132) to discover who murdered Laius, and he won’t rest until he’s figured it out. I relate to his determination because when I set a goal, I don’t rest until I have completed it.

Atticus endangered the life of himself and all the people around him. “ It was Miss Stephanie’s pleasure to tell us: this morning Mr. Bob Ewell stopped Atticus on the post office corner, spat in his face, and told him he’d get him if it took the rest of his life”(Lee 290). Atticus knew that he would have started something in the beginning when he took the court case because he knew he would shame and ruin Mr. Ewell’s reputation and it would entice Mr. Ewell to attack. As Atticus knew Mr. Ewells threats he did not think that Mr. Ewell would Attack Scout and Jem after the pageant. “He’s dead, Mr. Finch”(Lee 357).

The tragedy is filled with dramatic ironies due to Oedipus’ ambition in finding King Laius’s murderer. As Oedipus was addressing the people of Thebes about the consequences that will follow the murderer, “Be driven from every house, being, as he is, corruption itself to us”(Sophocles 227-228). The dramatic irony is that Oedipus is the murderer himself but he does not know it yet, so the proclamation that he said should be applied to him. Alternatively, Tiresias replied to Oedipus after he insulted him for being “sightless” and “ senseless” and said, “There is no one here who will not curse you soon, as you curse me.” Tiresias said this because even though he is blind he can still see the truth of who the true murderer is. Therefore soon the people of Thebes will start to cursing Oedipus once they find out he was the reason behind the
Presumably many misfortunes could have been avoided in the movie had Quincy, Raheem, and Steel not followed Bishop’s plan to rob the store or had one of them taken action after the incident. The crew’s conversation before robbing the store goes as follows “everybody got their gloves? Yeah, man. Ol' man Quiles is in there by himself. Let's do this.” Robbing the convenience store was a major turning point in the movie that caused a domino effect of events that could have been avoided.
