This shows that they fought constantly and made the two scared that their parents would only get more mad. 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.
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.

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.
He had his men divide the women equally and told them to share them all. Odysseus stayed on an island with the time distorting goddess Calypso who loved Odysseus a lot and didn’t want him to leave so he decided to stay instead of going home he stayed there until he wanted to go back home. “I stormed the place and killed the men who fought. Plunder we took, and we took, and we enslaved the women, to make division, equal shares to all.” I think that Odysseus does not deserve to be a literary hero because he has done so many bad things to so many people that didn’t deserve to be hurt or killed. This is worth consideration because Odysseus doesn’t deserve to be a literary hero because of how he treated his men and others without respect, kindness, bravery, and he definitely did not put his life on the line to save others he put others lives’ on the line to save his

Celie's father (Pa), is not only verbally abusive, but also physically abusive, “He beat me for dressing trampy but he do it to me anyway.” (6). Pa beat Celie for the way that she dressed, but he also beat her for no reason at all.

Physical abuse is seen throughout the novel and is inflicted on Celie by both her father and husband Mr._____. In 2018, physical abuse is “hidden”, but it is present in such large numbers especially in children, “Children are suffering from a hidden epidemic of child abuse and neglect… Every year more than 3.6 million referrals are made to child protection agencies…” (childhelp).
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.

She yelled “NO MATTER WHAT THE SITUATION IS YOU ALL ARE ALL MY KIDS, I GAVE BIRTH TO EVERY SINGLE ONE OF YOU ALL.” Writing poems just because now I know that this man is not my biological father so I began wondering, “do I have sisters, brothers, how many?
