Think I don’t like to talk to somebody ever’ once in a while?” (77) From the perspective of the ranch hands, Curley’s wife represents a nuisance with no individuality,
Medea surpassed the regulations by murdering her family and the ones with higher status. Jason degraded his status by not being able to obey the regulations that were placed on him. He was unsuccessful in taking care of his family and understanding his wife and children. It is extremely shocking and unforgivable if a woman took revenge on her husband through murder in a society where women were always looked down upon. But the whole society overlooked Jason’s actions of betraying his own family and blood in secrecy.

Rogers, I had no doubt, had acted very largely under the influence of her husband.¨(Christie, 243) With this we can tell that not only did Thomas kill an old lady for money but forced his wife, most likely threatened her or even blackmailed her, to do the dirty work. Thomas did two awful things, two illegal things, two things that need justice to be served. Emily Brent, another character that some believe deserves to be on the island and justice should be served. Emily Brent was taking care of a young girl who got pregnant before marriage, which is against what Emily believes in so she kicked her out of her home, which then the young girl drowned herself. This is an awful situation, but Emily did not plan on having the girl kill herself, she didn't plan on it at all like Thomas did.

They felt they would only hurt more people by saying they were married. Act 2 scene 2 line 70 “If they see you they’ll murder you”. This shows that they were so scared that they fought so much so they kept it a secret so the other would not be killed. This shows they unleashed their demise because their parents inspired this fear. This reminds me a lot of when I had done things for my father because I was scared of him making me scared to do anything.
As she explained to me my father sexually assaulted her and was currently locked up for murder. Searching the internet for more information on this man, more and more disturbing news pops up. Crying to my mother begging her not to tell my siblings, I was ashamed and I was already picked on about my hair and being a cry baby. I didn’t want to give my sisters anything else to pick on me about.
Well, I have, and that lead me nowhere but dealing with the cops and the courts and my mother yelling at me like I stole something which I don’t understand why because she was allowing this wrongful action for a long time.

Antigone, a complex character indeed-- many have described her as fiercely brave, tragic heroine, or even, a model of strength for women. Although the events of Antigone do lend easily to these characterizations of Antigone, it is also apparently clear that she possessed self-interested motives behind the burial of her brother, Polynices. She sought glory and honor for her actions, rather than having mere satisfaction from the actions themselves. Throughout the play, Antigone displays a sense of hubris regarding her brave and heroic sacrifice for her brother—the hubris is exacerbated with the repetitive diction, especially the words ‘glory’ and ‘honor’ and Antigone’s constant desperation for the world to know about what she has done.
Antigone, from the play, Antigone, by Sophocles, was the sister of Polyneices. Sophocles used tone, imagery, diction, and many other literary devices to show Antigone’s nobility and virtuosity, her hamartia, and her downfall. These are all three of the characteristics of a tragic hero. This defies her as a tragic hero. Sophocles recognizes Antigone as noble and virtuous by showing the love she had for her brother and wanting to give him a proper burial, even though it is against the king’s edict, knowing she could be punished.
