Not only did Atticus show compassion towards friends, he also showed compassion to his enemy and their family. Atticus stepped in the shoes of the Ewells and said that "if spitting in my face and threatening me saved Mayella Ewell one extra beating, that 's something I 'll gladly take." (Lee 218) This represents compassion because he would gladly protect a victim of abuse with his own life. This shows that Atticus can understand and forgive anyone that has ever done him wrong, and will always look for the best outcome of a bad situation. Atticus is the character that shows the most compassion because he takes the anger of an entire town and the hate of an enemy and turns it into positive outlooks and is able to forgive and forget.
In William Shakespeare’s The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet, Tybalt is responsible for his own death because he has a history of killing, he has an attitude that instigates on problems, and he has grudges against Romeo.

Both of the short stories are about revenge, murder and madness. The narrators of both the Tell-Tale Heart and the Cask of Amontillado have very different motives for committing the murder each of them commits. In The Tell-Tale Heart, the narrator is insane and his motive behind killing the old man is that he cannot stand the sight of the old man’s “vulture eye”. He is tempted to close the eye forever, and so he does this by murdering him. Whereas, in The Cask of Amontillado, the reason behind the murder is revenge, “The thousand injuries of Fortunato I had borne as best I could; but when he ventured upon insult, I vowed revenge.” Additionally, Montressor’s jealousy is another reason because of which he murders Fortunato.
And lastly, he must come to terms with the fact that he caused the death of his wife, son, and niece. Therefore, Creon best represents a tragic hero. For a character to represent goodness, they must evoke pity from the audience. Creon must step up to take the throne of Eteocles, one his recently fallen nephews.

In Oedipus there are many examples of people trying to avoid their fate and failing, thus revealing Sophacles beleif on the matter. For example, when Oedipus heard the prophecy that he would murder his father and kill his mother, he left his home.

Sympathy for Macbeth A tragedy is a piece of dramatic writing that entails the downfall of the main character. William Shakespeare’s Macbeth is the story of a valiant thane, Macbeth, who murders his king with the belief that the throne is his destiny. Naturally, his horrid actions subject him to much abhorrence. However, despite his corrupt mindset, the reader pities Macbeth. Through keen use of action, soliloquy, and dialogue, Shakespeare causes any audience to react sympathetically to Macbeth’s negative attributes and perhaps even relate.
Hamlet had many opportunities of killing his uncle. He constantly hesitated and came up with reason of why and why not. Infact the entire sequence of the play Hamlet procrastinates because he wants a proper death for Claudius in revenge for killing his father. This is heavy evidence for Hamlet’s respect and honor (or love) he had for his father and the fact that his mother had quickly remarried and married his uncle offended him. That alone was enough for Hamlet a reason to kill his uncle even before knowing what his uncle had done.

One of the causes that lead to Romeo and Juliet’s death was the Authority figure.Therefore, One piece of evidence to support that the authority figures are blamed is “It should also be noted that the play begins with a fight scene between servants of the two families and ends with a peace agreement between Lords Montague and Capulet.”(Source 1) Another meaning for this quotation is because of their families fighting, it caused Romeo and Juliet to have poor consequences, bad actions,and die at the end because of their feud. Another piece of evidence is “Moreover, she lives in a family where her father does not know how to express his
The need for Macbeth’s trial stands due to the given evidence for the charges against humanity, murder, and treason. He ruthlessly killed King Duncan, Banquo, and Macduff’s family. Their deaths are in vain if we do not indict him. Macbeth needs a prosecution because he willingly took the immoral path of aimless slaughter and selfish ambition. Even if Lady Macbeth pressured Macbeth, he killed King Duncan impelled by his own selfish ambition and lethal thoughts.
Oedipus was told that his fate was to kill his real father and marry his real birth mother. Since Oedipus was not raised by his real parents, and did not know, he believed that he did not do either of the things the Oracle has stated.
