She is an insider looking out. Newland has an inner struggle throughout the film to maintain his posterior, yet he can’t help but give in to his desires sometimes.

In Shakespeare’s play, Romeo and Juliet, the two main characters tragically die by committing suicide for one another.

It was his irresponsible behaviors which lead to the start of many problems.
First impressions pave the way for any and all relationships within a person 's absolute life. As a narcissist, stepping in on the wrong foot is often hard by cause of building one sided relationships. In fact, to put to rest the misconception that the elevated self esteem is only one the outside while inside they are fragile people, a healthy social life is often challenging and sometimes impossible due to the constant desire for a ludicrous and unrealistic amount of applause and wonderment being so because they believe they do deserve it. In the movie, “O Brother, Where Art Thou?”, one of the three main characters, Everett, falls victim to his lack of thorough recognition of the concept following his illusory perception that his being is greater than anyone else’s can or will ever be clever enough to accomplish is more than farfetched. Everett’s large vocabulary, spiffier appearance than his neighbors, and disabling lack of understanding and accepting criticism reflect his idea of entitlement and supports the idea of him being better than and never equal to the ones around
These characters show unshakable willpower in different ways, but all end up with devastating results. Antigone’s ambition shows her passion for what she believes in, but still ends up committing suicide. Creon uses his unshakable willpower in a selfish, non heroic way and ends up alone.

A character in the play Julius Caesar written by William Shakespeare that I considered to be a tragic hero is Julius Caesar, I say he is a tragic hero because he faced downfalls, had flaws that lead to his downfall, and after he died many people felt guilt and pity against him, and he was looked up to by many people. Another reason why I say that Julius Caesar was a tragic hero is because he had flaws that lead to his downfall some of those flaws were being cocky, thinking he was untouchable, and not listening to the warnings that several people gave him about the ides of march. Since Julius Caesar did not listen to the warnings he was told about the ides of march he ended up getting murdered by the conspirators at the capitol.
