Tragic Hero Essay During the times of 500 B.C., the Greek tragedy of Antigone by Sophocles took place in a Palace. Moreover, it had been a classical Greek tragedy which was quite common in ancient times like these. This specific play was about a King, named Creon and a woman named Antigone, who buried her brother and because it was against the king's law, she got sentenced to death.

169-171). This scene occurs after Romeo drinks poison and kills himself when Juliet wakes up and sees this she decides to kill herself.

As a result the ghost of Caesar was not the revival of Caesars spirit but rather it was physical manifestation of Brutus' guilty conscience. The death of Portia seemed to have a profound effect on Brutus as well, this can be clearly recognized as Brutus was visibly sadder after hearing of his wife's death. This sadness could be attributed to the fact Brutus thinks that he himself is responsible for Portia's death. It was revealed in the story that She killed herself because she was worried about Brutus absences and that Octavius and Mark Antony had made themselves to strong. " Impatient of my absence, and grief that young Octavius with Mark Antony Had made themselves so strong- for with her death".
To me, both stories are very similar; tales where the “blind” husband is made a cuckold of by one of his close friends. The reason why the Wife of Bath’s prologue is last is because she seems so unhappy. The fact that her tale was about her wishes, proves that she is not content with her life. She has yet to be loved as more than just a pretty face or a wealthy noble. This tale is known for the “Dorigen’s Complaint,” where she talks about all of the women through history who have killed themselves when in a position where they might lose honor.
An alternative claim that could be made is that the violence is for love, but in Act 5 scene 3, when Juliet wakes up to discover Romeo dead, she says “O, happy dagger, This is thy sheath. There rust, and let me die,” (5.3.174-175) while this may seem she is only doing this to join her dead lover, she is only using violence to, indirectly, solve violence by killing herself. The deaths of the two lovers finally brings an end to the long feud but at the expense of the rationality of the violence. While some may think that Romeo and Juliet killing themselves for love and ending the feud is rational violence, it causes all of the other violence in the book to simply be

A priest, a follower of God believed that, a person committed suicide will not receive a Christian burial (Miller, 2013). Then the other gravedigger then argued that, “While you ha’ the truth on’t? If this had not been a gentlewoman, she should been buried out o ” (V.i.22-24), which means, Ophelia is receiving a Christian burial because of her background.

Though there is no true evidence Lady Macbeth ends up killing herself, and Macbeth questions why he should kill himself “ Why should I play the Roman fool and die On mine own sword?” (Crowther, V,viii., 2005). This shows that he will not take the same fate as his wife by dying at his own hand. Soon after this he is killed by Macduff. Macbeth also has to be manipulated by his wife questioning his manliness because as stated by his wife he “To full o’ th’ milk of human kindness” (Crowther, I,v., 2005).

Benvolio says this to Romeo, because Tybalt has just been killed because he killed Mercutio. “Romeo, away, be gone! / The citizens are up and Tybalt slain. ”(3.1.130-131) This supports that Tybalt is to blame because his death leads to a lot more events like the capulet finding out and being heartbroken, but Juliet is even more sad because Romeo has been punished to exile but her parents don’t know that they are married.
Throughout Cantos 1-6 of Purgatorio, multiple times different individuals were talking about shadows and especially the fact that they could recognize something was different with the Pilgrim based on his shadow: “When those in front saw that the light in my right side was broken, so that the shadow extended from me to the cliff… “Without your asking, I confess to you that this a human body you see, by which the light of the sun is split upon the ground”” (Canto 3, p.53, lines 88-96). From Heaven there were rays of sun shining down onto purgatory and this seemed like it could possibly be a symbol of God’s grace on those repenting to get rid of their stains before entering the Kingdom, which is there was no sun in Hell.
