Readers experience many substories that mimic the thematic tales of The Odyssey. In Book I the metaphorical stage is set "in medias res" as the Greek Gods discuss Odysseus’ predicament. The story starts twenty years after Odysseus has left his infant son Telemachus with his patient wife Penelope. As he goes to fight against Troy in Homer’s previous tale The Iliad. Both Agamemnon and Odysseus, have wives besieged by suitors and a son who, logically, dislikes them.
Just one example was when Romeo is speaking about killing himself and lying beside Juliet “well, Juliet, I will lie with the tonight.”(Shakespeare. 793. 34). They didn’t always think about the actions they were making, they just did what they felt was right in the moment. These rash actions were most of the time things that spanned to death without each other, if they hadn’t done this thee plan would have worked and neither would have died.
Another reason people may think Macbeth was controlled by free will is because he could have just stopped killing, he could have killed once and then moved on and stopped, but decided to kill more to solidate his power. Both sides are very valid arguments. I firmly believe that Macbeth was controlled by fate. He was cursed by witches at the beginning, it set the rest of his life in stone. What the witches said would happen happened and the seems like a pretty good picture of fate.
He came to the conclusion that killing Caesar was the right thing to do, not just for himself but for the public’s greater good. His reasoning is because he believes that if Caesar is ruler, than everyone would become slaves to him. Brutus says in Act V, “I found no man but he was true to me. I shall have glory by this losing day more than Octavius and Mark Antony by this vile conquest shall attain unto.” Brutus calls his own time of death because he sees Octavius and Antony’s victory as Rome’s freedom being stripped. Brutus accepts his death with honor because he believes killing himself rather than his enemies killing him is honorable/loyal.
After that he was banished from his homeland, Juliet is forced to marry and the two lovers found out that both supposedly died so they both commit suicide. Shakespeare makes a point that both Romeo and Juliet make impulsive decisions that lead to their death. During the second scene of Act II, Romeo and Juliet decide to get married after having met hours before at the Capulet party. In the scene that follows, Romeo asks Friar Lawrence, “but this I pray, That thou consent to marry us today” (Shakespeare 410). Here, Romeo is requesting that Friar Lawrence marry him and
Though he was an enemy of the Trojans, he was still respected by Aeneas, which showed the true extent to which the Trojans valued auctoritas. Evidence for Paragraph II: Dido was also a non-example of pietas because she killed herself after Aeneas left her, even though he had to leave her in order to fulfill the fate assigned to him by the gods. This showed that she didn't respect the will of the gods above her personal will. In contrast, Creusa exemplified pietas because she told Aeneas that he would find a new wife in the new Troy, which would help him fulfill his fate. This showed that she valued the will of the gods above her own self-interest.
What if the endings were flipped? Suppose Mrs. Mallard didn’t die from heart complications but instead lived, only to murder her husband. What if Mrs. Wright, took her own life rather than her husband’s? The route taken to get to the ending was quite different, but the results were awfully similar. Based on the information in “The Story of an Hour”, Mrs. Mallard very well could have murdered her husband, to little surprise of the reader.
Counterclaim Although the death penalty may bring some closure to families of the victims and even the victims themselves it still should be abolished because the negatives outweigh the positives. People could be murdered by the state even if they are innocent. They are taking away any chance these people have at a normal life even though it's a life that they deserve and did nothing to have it taken away. 6. Conclusion In conclusion the idea that the death penalty should be abolished can be supported by many reasons that include extensive evidence.
When Jurgis is told what happened to his wife, he quickly becomes triggered. He marches up to where Ona works and, “beats Ona’s boss Connor. Connor has raped Jurgis’s wife Ona”( Mark Bracher 147). After a few weeks, Ona realizes she is pregnant. Later in her pregnancy she becomes very ill.
I also said that fate is responsible for the tragedy of Oedipus. In my opinion, it truly seemed that no matter what Oedipus did, he would also end up where he did. I like how you interpreted that the gods were trying to protect the Thebans - not so much entirely punish Oedipus. Oedipus ' free will of figuring out everything did eventually cause his pain, but I feel that everything would have been figured out eventually, whether Oedipus continued searching or not.
