Creon vs. Antigone: Who is more tragic? In the story of Antigone, Creon and Antigone go through tragic events such as getting themselves killed in attempt of saving others or getting their family killed because of their own selfishness and pride. Speaking of selfishness and pride, Creon has self-inflicted suffering and guilt on himself at the end of the story because of those two. For one of the reasons being: He made his son turned against him and made him meet his demise. That chains onto him having his wife Eurydice committing suicide as well as Antigone (his niece) also committing suicide.
Juliet has had many suicidal deliberations throughout the play. The first thought came after her father told her she was to marry Count Paris. After the big argument with her parents and betrayal of the nurse, Juliet decided that the only way she will be able to escape Paris is for her to execute herself. Juliet states that “If all else fail, myself have power to die.” The next time she contemplated death is when she is about to consume the potion Friar Laurence gave her. She concludes that if the mixture doesn’t work, she will be forced to kill herself with a dagger.
The speaker wants to kill her husband who is like a vampire to her, who tortured for years, so she does kill him, then she claims that if she killed her father first and then her husband, she will become the killer of two persons, so as we see she uses the hyperbole device to exaggerate with the description of her husband and his way to treat her with. As we see, the speaker “Sylvia Plath” wrote a poem with a lot of literary devices such; repetition, allusion and hyperbole that support the main theme of “death” which she is talking about it in the whole poem, when she mentions her desire to kill her father even if he was dead, and comparing her life with unimaginable suffer that the Jews had experienced during the WW II, even her will and desire to kill her husband that she pictures him as a vampire, who made her life like hell, so like we see she has the desire of “death” that is talking about it in the whole poem, and making it the main
Macbeth committed murder to King Duncan for his love of his wife. Lady Macbeth wanted her husband Macbeth to commit murder for her own evil ambitions. She wanted her husband, Macbeth to kill Duncan so Macbeth will become king of Scotland and she will become queen (Act 1, Scene 6, Lines 16-31) She manipulates her husband into killing King Duncan by calling her husband a coward . (Act 1,Scene 5, Lines 44-50) In addition, she comes up with the plot to kill king Duncan. (Act 1: Scene 7 : Lines 75-77).
As a result of rumors and revenge in Hamlet, self-murder is a consequence. For example,Gertrude and Ophelia, felt that suicide was the only way to escape the pain and craziness they experienced. When people kill themselves, they are not in their right state of mind. In the Hamlet Primary Source about self-murder,it states that suicide destroys the beauty of life each of us has,when the real the beauty of life could be on the other side when people have truly passed away. Ophelia is a clear example of this, she appeared to be crazy to everybody else,but is only misunderstood.
By the end of the final act of the play, both Lady Macbeth and Macbeth have died. The former died without a specific explanation (presumably by suicide) and the latter died on the battlefield at the hands of Macduff. I strongly believe that they should have both died under the death penalty as they are both guilty of murdering innocent people for the sole purpose of satisfying their greed and ensuring their own personal safety. Starting off in the first act, Macbeth and Lady Macbeth agree to murder King Duncan and his servants in order for them to be given the crown. Lady Macbeth states: “If he do bleed, I’ll gild the faces of the grooms withal, for it must seem their guilt.” (Act 2.
Shouting and using harsh words are the traits that show anger and Curley became this angry since his loving wife is dead. Because of his wife dying in Lennie’s hand, he also announced, “I’m gonna shoot the guts outta that big bastard myself, even if I only got one hand. I’m gonna get ‘im” (Steinbeck 93). This other scene shows the alarming and horrifying determination by Curley of killing another person because he knew that Lennie is the one who made the trouble and broke his wife’s
Epiphany is shown in this musical movie in two different cases. First in the song “Epiphany” you can see that he realizes that he missed one of his only chances to avenge his supposed death of his wife, shown by the lyric: “had swear I had him! His throat was there and now he'll never come again.” This is when he decides to become spiteful and murder dozens of citizens. Another case that could be considered an epiphany is when he understands that he ended up killing his wife, letting his daughter escape, trust a jealous lunatic, and that he ended up killed dozens of innocent people. He has this moment of epiphany when Mrs. Lovett opens up the oven, creating a light that shined on his old love’s face, which he murdered.
The lives of the two characters, Romeo and Juliet are taken at the site of the Capulet family grave. Romeo kills himself thinking that Juliet is dead. As Juliet wakes up she realizes Romeo is dead and proceeds to kill herself. The montagues and the capulets have been fighting for a while and that is why Romeo and Juliet have to hide their marriage, because if they are caught they will both get in trouble. There are multiple reasons for why everyone should believe that Friar Lawrence is to blame for the deaths.
She has faced second-hand wrongdoing from the oppressive government through the murder of her family members. She describes, “...that sister of the mortally wounded boy upon the ground was my sister, that husband was my sister’s husband, that unborn child was their child, that brother was my brother, that father was my father, those dead are my dead, and that summons to answer for those things descends to me!’”(Dickens 354). Because Madame Defarge was vengeance for her family, she makes the heir of the aristocrat that killed her family, an innocent man who had relinquished his claim to the throne, to be executed. She believes that all aristocrats must be punished just because of their relation by blood, saying herself, “‘The château [castle] and the race...Extermination.’”(Dickens 179). Madame Defarge’s hatred for the government comes from her loved ones being murdered by the controllers of that government.
From the murder of Duncan (to achieve the role of King), the ordered execution of his close friend Banquo (to dismiss his fear), and even the loss of his wife, Lady Macbeth, Macbeth’s violent behaviour was destructive to his relationships, resulting in the death of his loved ones, as well as
It tore them apart when Romeo heard that his Juliet was dead. After he heard this he bought some poison from a poor pharmacist and killed himself in Juliet’s grave tomb. When Juliet woke up and found Romeo dead, she took his dagger and killed herself. This happened in act 1-2.
