In Medea by Euripides, Medea 's character flaw that ultimately led to her downfall is revenge. Medea 's husband Jason left her to marry a younger, beautiful woman. Medea becomes outraged, and all she thinks about is getting revenge. She kills Glauce, Jason 's new wife, and her father, Creon. She wanted her revenge to be perfect she even killed her own children to get revenge on Jason leaving her.
Comparison of the “Psycho” and “A Rose for Emily” The Psycho by Alfred Hitchcock and A Rose for Emily by William Faulkner are works with different plots and endings. The movie is focused on a maniac, who recreated an image of his mother to kill visitors. Norman Bates killed own mother because he thought she “betrayed” him, and used her personality in his further crimes. The man was caught and his actions were revealed long before his death. Faulkner’s story demonstrates totally different plot: there is an own main character, her mental disorder and its consequences for the society.

Other tales tell how Lilith was vanished from Eden into the underworld where she became the mother of demons.
Situational irony was revealed both stories because a situation occurred in which actions had an effect that was the complete opposite from what was intended, so that the outcome is contrary to what was expected. In A Rose For Emily many reader including myself expected Emily to kill herself because of the hardships and losses of love ones but at the end of the story she actually poisoned Homer to kill him. No person in the town knew she killed until she was dead herself, 40 years later. Despite Homer not having the desire to married Emily to take it upon her to make sure marriage will be created by death. Therefore, she murders Homer in order to form a everlasting bond.

In Titus Andronicus, Titus sacrifices a child’s life for his own dead sons. This shows that in both plays a psychotic character chooses death and hatred over any other sensible act. Titus expresses how blood and revenge are the only two things he focuses on in the play, just like Madea. Madea seeks revenge on Jason and kills her children including Jason’s new royalty bride. She goes through with the act of killing Jason's new bride - Medea's children bring her a poisoned gown, which also ends up killing the King of Corinth.
In Macbeth, Lady Macbeth has power over her husband and manipulates his thoughts to kill others in order to gain more power; however, the plan failed as Lady Macbeth and Macbeth lost their sanity and brought their reign to an end by bringing misery and misfortune to everyone around them. Also, in Othello, Desdemona went against her father by sneaking out to marry Othello and completely went against the female norms by joining Othello to the battlefield. As a result, the antagonist manipulated Othello into killing Desdemona due to her determination and independence. Shakespeare has always portrayed females as strong, prideful and independent individuals who aren’t afraid of speaking up to defend their thoughts, however, due to the long-established gender roles, these individual will ultimately bring bad omen to their own family and lead them to their own
Warren changed the mood is with the plot. First, Hestia gave up her throne to Dionysus in Mrs. Warren’s version. In the written story, “Hestia, the eldest sister of Zeus, was goddess of the hearth. She had no throne, but tended the sacred fire in the hall…” (Pg.5) The quote above proves that the mood changed from violent to interesting with the plot because instead of always having a throne like in the written story, Dionysus had to beg for it until Hestia let him have hers in Mrs. Warren’s story. Next, Uranus threw down the ugly children in disgust.
Nothing could stop her. Madame Defarge was one leader in the revolution, hoping to kill as many nobles as she could. She would get joy watching the guillotine kill people. “It was nothing to her, that an innocent man was to die for the sins of his forefathers; she saw, not him, but them. It was nothing to her, that his wife was to be made a widow and his daughter an orphan; that was insufficient punishment, because they were her natural enemies and her prey, and as such had no right to live”.
This echoes the punishment of Danae, mother of Perseus, who was a demigod son of Zeus. She was thrown into a similar cell after a prophecy was issued that her child would grow up to kill his grandfather, her father, the king of Argos. Zeus visited her in her cell, impregnating her. I feel that this was a blessing, as was Antigone’s suicide. Both women found a way, or a way found them, to take back some measure of control, of freedom, back from their captors.
Harrison may be a hero to some and may not be to others because everyone has a different point of view and witness the situation from different positions. However, in my point of view, he is a hero because he had an effort, was brave, and his goal was heroic. In most societies what he did would make him a hero. In the story, all people were facing the same law. They (including George and Hazel) had an instinct that it was wrong, but no one was willing to break out of it.
The witch trials in Salem occurred because of Abigail and it is her fault. She started something she could not finish and by starting it killed many innocent people and ruined many reputations. Abigail is at blame because she was the one who is basically the "psycho girlfriend" who is obsessed with her ex. But because she is desperately in love with John Proctor, she is willing to do anything to have him all to herself. Just like how she drank a chicken blood charm to kill Elizabeth, which is against her religion.
I am Jason, the former husband of Medea. As the hero of the Golden Fleece, I was once married to a barbarian witch who was also the princess of Colchis. There are no good reasons to take my ex wife 's, Medeas side and defend her for the crimes she has committed. Medea is simply an inadequate person. She comes from a barbaric family that practices dark acts, she does not care about other people 's lives, and she killed our beloved children without a second thought.
Apollo and Artemis took it upon themselves to shoot and kill all of Niobe 's children with their arrows out of dignity for their mother.
