A few months ago Proserpina the daughter of Ceres, goddess of grain, was kidnapped by Pluto, god of the underworld. Ceres is too sad to even grow plants on earth. People wonder if Zeus will step in and stop this. The Greeks say that Proserpina wanted to go to the underworld. The Romans say that Proserpina was kidnapped by Pluto and that Pluto is forcing Proserpina to be his wife.
The cyclops was left blind and he ran off. During the Trojan War Odysseus had a great idea to make the a horse for the Trojans and left it by the gate. What they didn't know was that they were hiding inside the horse to attack while they were sleeping. There was another time during his journey where they were passing by some Sirens. Odysseus used his intelligence to use wax and put it in their ears so they wont hear them because if they did they would
Like the end of the video, Odysseus got kill by Cyclops’s father. Otherwise than both medias showed that Odysseus has strong intelligence, strategy, and leadership during the escape. Odysseus is the symbol of intelligent in the story. He considered more perfectly and thoughtful than his colleagues. Both text and video demon that Odysseus and his crews were going to landed on a secret island and find out the truth of it, but they accidentally got attract into a monster's cave and got beset with crisis.
From a happy marriage to the Macbeths' no longer having love in their relationship and only having fear, guilt and hunger for power. Through it all would you consider Lady Macbeth’s suicide was a cowardly case? MacBeth did not care about who he had to kill in order to be high and powerful. You can see his obsession to become the king and have that title, just by hearing the witches prophecy.”All hail, Macbeth! Hail to thee, thane of Glamis!
He then proceeds to address the actions of life as being “a tale/ Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury” (Shakespeare, Wilder, 2004). He realizes that at the end of everything that he has done to obtain the throne and to keep it, means nothing because he is going to die, as he has made to many enemies and he has no heir. Children will also play a part in “Play it as it Lays” when Maria, who’s inability to raise one child, and abortion of the second will drive her further down an already nihilistic path that results in her own psychiatric commitment. So in the end for Macbeth it was all pointless. He goes on to say that life has no meaning, that it is just an inconsequential story full of random events that have no purpose, but the moment that an event is occurring it becomes the most important thing that there is in
Although the Gods were partly at fault for his journey being long and difficult they never controlled Odysseus, therefore what happened to Odysseus was ultimately because of his own actions. Odysseus’ heroic journey was put to a screeching halt, when Goddess, Calypso seduced Odysseus and imprisoned him on her island because she was madly in love with him. The quote “...my wife Penelope is nothing like so tall or so beautiful as
Juliet’s relationship with her dad is slim to none and has Mr. Capulet guessing what she is like and he makes all decisions for her without even knowing what's going on in her life. Mr. Capulet is the most responsible for Romeo and Juliet’s death because he didn't respect Juliet’s thoughts , he was selfish, and he kept the feud going between the families. Social status. That's all Mr. Capulet was thinking about when he arranged the marriage between Juliet and Paris. When the two families were on good terms with the Prince Mr. Capulet thought “She hath not seen the change of fourteen years, Let two more summers wither in their pride, pass by Ere we may think her ripe to be a bride.” When the Prince is
However, the most popular are: a class difference, financial struggle, a third party (ie: love triangle), or what I like to call the Spider-Man/Mary Jane conflict, where the hero walks away from the girl because he believes their relationship would make her a target for supervillains. All of these situations are utterly preposterous, because if you love somebody and they love you back the only obstacle in the way is yourself. There is not a person to blame for Ethan and Mattie’s troubles, they simply met when it was too late, Ethan had already married. Ethan could not have known that his life with Zeena would be unsatisfactory. On the other hand, one could say that they themselves are the cause of their troubles.
She was married off to Offa and became “less of a bane to people’s lives. For not performing her duty, she was married off to a random man as a punishment. Her reputation as a queen will also remain tinted as a queen that “perpetrated terrible wrongs”. Another example of people that are unable to perform a duty is the coward men that left Beowulf alone with the dragon. They ran in fear of the dragon and fails to defend their kings thus failing to perform their duty.
He was selfish for marrying Romeo and Juliet for him. He had a desire to end the feud between the two families, so he married them without anyone else knowing apart from the Nurse. With having a selfish nature Friar Lawrence's is never the most dependable person, not even for Romeo. He turned the whole city of Verona when he married the two, and made everything worse. Friar only thought of himself when he fabricated sizable resolutions.
This is the Fox’s explanation for Psyche’s belief that a god used wind to take her away to a palace only worthy of the gods. In other words, he is calling Psyche crazy for believing such things. This, however, is proven false by the end of the book. She is taken by a god to his palace to be his wife, but is not believed by Orual or the Fox due to the fact that they could not see it themselves and understand something reason tells them not to. Reason for the characters has reached its limit and has destroyed their relationship with Psyche for not believing or trusting, similar to modern
Antigone and her father Oedipus are very alike and different in a few ways. The things that occur to them both lead up to their deaths. For instance, Antigone defies the leader Creon which results in her death. Also, Oedipus and his wife Jocasta ignore the gods which causes Oedipus’s long life of suffering. Oedipus and Antigone both ignore high powered people.
They never were and never will be welcomed just because of their immortality and if you say your immortal people will laugh at you, be scared of you, or even try to kill you. I also thought the Tucks didn’t like their differences because nobody ever visits them, not even Mr. Foster who knew everybody didn’t know the Tucks. Did Winnie Spill the Secret? I know that Winnie promised the Tucks that she would never tell anybody about the secret but I think she did. She probably told her husband and children the secret because maybe she trusted them enough to tell them.
