When the identity of the horseman was revealed, my first reaction was surprised because I realize that Druse kills his own father and I understood why every kinds of war are destructive for family relationships. I realize also the significance of the duty for a soldier because if Druse didn’t kill his father, he can be considered as a criminal. 9.

“Reverence toward the gods must be safeguarded. The mighty words of the proud are paid in full with mighty blows of fate”(1467-1470) This quote tells us the downfall of Creon and how disobeying the gods with arrogance are punished by fate. This quote and the corrupt actions of Creon are evidence for the message of the play. Sophocles shows us how the selfish acts of the arrogant king who made these decisions on his own killed his loved ones by defying the gods.

First, the author states, “From ancient grudge break to new mutiny,/Where civil blood makes civil hands unclean.” (Prologue.3-4). Shakespeare attributes the tragedy of Romeo and Juliet as stemming from “ancient grudge”, which is the long-lasting feud between the two families.

Whilst Amir is looking for Hassan, he states that to his right were ‘rows of snow-burdened cypress trees.’ Cypress trees being present near Amir serve as a warning to him. This is because cypress trees are symbolic of mourning and are seen as a ‘graveyard tree,’ as that is a common tree found in cemeteries. This suggests the trees were present to foreshadow the death of Hassan and Amir’s friendship after Amir finds Hassan, and furthermore the death of Hassan’s purity. Cypress trees cannot regrow if they have been cut too deeply, and that essentially is what happens between Hassan and Amir- Hassan was cut too deep because of what happened to him, and even though after many years he still wanted to be Amir’s friend, Amir was cut too deep by his guilt and by the time he was even able to grow and develop as a person, it was too late to rebuild their friendship because Hassan was dead.
A character having an ability to be an influence of fatality is a dangerously powerful trait to have. The victim’s life is placed into the hands of the influencer. This power of fatality can be seen within Robert Frost’s poem, “Out, Out,” when a personified buzz saw cuts the hand off the boy using it. This injury causes him to die.

The biggest thematic concern in this was faith. An example is used when Romeo yells out, “O, I am fortune’s fool!”(3.1.131). This refers specifically to his unluckiness in being forced to kill his new wife’s cousin. It also recalls the sense of fate that hangs over the play. Mercutio’s response to his fate, however, is notable in the ways it differs from Romeo’s response.
In hamlet some sins are even multiplied together, for example the ghost wants his revenge on claudius and he also wants his crown back which is both wrath and envy. Throughout the play the seven deadly sins will appear frequently. Claudius, before the play even began wanted to be the king of denmark.

Antebellum America was a period of conflict and unease due to the various differences in beliefs regarding slavery between the northern and southern states.
