If Friar had not married Romeo and Juliet then they would not have killed themselves over the death of one another. Friar exclaims ,”and if aught in this miscarried by my fault.”(5.3.266-267). Friar thinks he is the only one to blame because he sinned and broke a law. Friar illustrates,“Unto the rigor of severest laws.”(5.3.269). Friar is saying that he broke the severest laws by marrying Romeo and Juliet without the consent of their parents leading him to believe he is responsible for everything.
He concentrates on advocating the facts that Christianity was not fair to Hinduism. The context clearly influenced him to fail to consider the judgment of others such as the Mahatma Gandhi. He notices the failures that Mahatma made through regarding all religions as tolerant and concludes he (Mahatma) was not aware Christianity was evil and the missionaries had hidden their true self. According to Ram, Mahatma thought taming Christians would have been possible through his reasonability. Sita was blinded by the context of his book in such a way that he completely failed to consider the philosophy of Mahatma Gandhi and simply branded him as a failure since.
For example, Laertes' trap backfires on him, causing his own death. Claudius manipulates him into avenging his father's death, but also to erase the threat that Hamlet represents to Claudius. Claudius starts a domino effect of immoral actions. If he hadn’t killed King Hamlet, no one else in the play would have committed immoral actions. Claudius committed this act out of greed, which is one of the seven deadly sins.
Is there an identity? The Fool’s answer would seem to be no; his relationships gone, Lear has no identity left. (Leggatt,2005:156).Moreover, Fool says:“Thou hast pared thy wit o’both sides and left nothing i’the middle”;/ “I am better than thou art now./ I am a fool, thou art nothing” (I.iv.190–93, 198–99). Here, Fool tries, again and again, to awaken conscience at Lear 's Mind even holds himself accountable and corrects the path to righteousness and judgment. Moreover, Fool refers to strangely tries to make his master see reason, and
Of course the play took place during puritan times, but it was written in the 1900s, so the typical people who would have watched it wouldn’t have considered them sins punishable by death. John did not deserve to be accused as a witch and executed; he did not deserve his downfall. So what caused Proctor’s downfall? A tragic hero must have caused his own downfall and recognize his own fault. The only reason Proctor was accused of witchcraft was because he got involved in the,
Battles mainly focusses on the depiction of the characters, and assumes that a lack of cultural framework is one of Kipling 's major point of criticism on Empire. “[N]atives and English stare at each other across gulfs of miscomprehension” (Battles 341). Strickland and his companion do not understand the happenings. For them, “the affair was beyond any human and rational experience” (Kipling 301). They have their suspicions but are afraid to say it out loud, as it would not correspond to their ideologies.
This verifies Thoreau’s beliefs regarding voting and court situations. Those who religiously watched “Twenty-One,” criticized Stempel for his truthful claims. Dan Enwright said “He blames Charles Van Doren for his downfall. And of course, the real downfall of Herbert Stempel has always been Herbert Stempel.” People targeted Stempel because he had not been born into a wealthy family and a luxurious lifestyle, and therefore, they assumed that he was only speaking up for the fame and money. Thoreau commented that “A man has not everything to do, but something; and because he cannot do everything, it is not necessary that he should do something wrong,” (Thoreau p.25) referencing that men do not have the powers of the Divine, otherwise, they have the power to lie and dominate
King Kansna should also have realized that a prophecy cannot be avoided, instead of acting in such a way he should have remained calm and should have thought his way out. Another example of people trying to avoid a prophecy is in the Greek mythology. Zeus was having an affair with a sea nymph, Thetis who had a prophecy that her son will be greater than his father. After hearing the prophecy Zeus panicked and forced Thetis to marry a mortal king, Peleus. Zeus took the extreme actions because he didn’t want to lose his power of the King of the Gods.
Furies insist on the killing of Orestes because murder of his mother could not have any justification and the divine punishment was set right after the act of killing . The argumentation on the trial of Athena moves based on the old tradition which encompasses around Zeus. Furies claim that Clytemnestra’s murder of her husband was not exile-worthy because they were not blood-related . Killing of a father is not an as serious crime as killing of a mother because Zeus killed his father Kronos too . These arguments of Furies make it clear that their judgement is matriarchal biased.
Antigone, on the other hand, is the complete opposite in temperament. After going through with the act of breaking the law, she says to Creon, “I did not think your edicts strong enough to overrule the unwritten unalterable laws of God and heaven, you being only a man” (438). Antigone clearly puts the laws of the gods over the laws of man, as she does not think the laws of man are strong enough to overpower them. She disregards man’s laws to serve the higher law. Another major aspect of this conflict is Creon’s sexism.
