In questioning, Antigone uncovers that she knew her actions went against Creon’s orders, but she could not disobey the Gods “because [she] feared a man” (459-460). To maintain his power in reign, Creon determines Ismene guilty by association (488-489) and demands the sisters be sentenced to death promptly. Ismene, who refused to participate in the burial, attempted to persuade Creon to let Antigone and herself free. She pulls on Creon’s heart by speaking of his beloved son, Haemon, “‘but she is Haemon’s bride--and can you kill her?’ . .
He scorned Aphrodite, who in turn made Phaedra fall in love with him. Even though he had the audacity to blame Phaedra for her feelings when he was the causation of them. If Aphrodite had not made Phaedra fall in love with Hippolytus, then she never would have accused him of raping her and he would never have died the gruesome death that he did. It all could have been avoided if he had just paid heed to all of the gods properly. While on a base level it may seem like Phaedra or Aphrodite were the reason for his demise, it was really Hippolytus himself who was responsible.
He did not want to bury his own nephew, he wanted to kill Antigone for burying Polyneices, and tried to kill his own brother because the kingdom had a curse on it. He had too much power and needed to calm down and think what he was doing. Antigone knew that this was the right to do and did without being afraid or sorry for it. She was helping Creon, Ismene, and the community, and they did not realize that she was helping them until it was too
Eventually, Odysseus cannot bare to be separated from his loved ones any longer, and he crumbles and loses the will to live. While Calypso detains Odysseus on her island, Athena pleads for Zeus to release him, describing him “longing to see even the smoke curling up from his land, simply want[ing] to die” (1.64-65). Even though Odysseus is in the presence of a goddess, depression seizes him, and he longs for his wife. He would rather die than have to endure anymore of this kleos, for his greatest desire - to return home; is prevented by Calypso. She is a living representation of kleos’ deceitfulness: offering what is desired but at a price too steep to pay.
I 'm pretty sure they 've all done some fucked up shit. The thing is though, Ares does care for his daughter so he 's not in the category of only caring about himself. I don 't peace with them, I want to murder half of the gods. Then I can have my peace which is what I 'll strive for after this is all over with. Whether it 's by myself or with Aeson, Athena, Hades, Priscilla, and Saint.
She also aids him afterwards when the other gods are contemplating whether Odysseus is guilty or not. They decide he isn’t by saying, “There will be killing till the score is paid.” Odysseus’ last mentor and helper is his family. His memories of Penelope and Telemachus kept him going and gave him the encouragement he needed to come home. Penelope, although surrounded by suitors, stayed faithful to her husband. She says, “Eurymachus, all my excellence, my beauty and figure, were ruined by the immortals … If he (Odysseus) were to come back to me and take care of my life, then my reputation would be more great and splendid.” The same cannot be said for Odysseus, though, as he cheated on Penelope with Circe and Calypso.
Gatsby always had a loving feeling for Daisy, even though she is in a marriage. This did not stop Gatsby for going after what he wanted. Gatsby tried very hard to get Daisy’s attention with the parties he had, but it never seemed to work. Every complication that occurred affected Gatsby greatly. I think that the emotional affair between Gatsby and Daisy killed Gatsby.
He could repent for every sin he’s ever made, but if he doesn’t confront the little girl’s mother, he won’t ever escape the heaviness inside of his soul. That’s why it was placed as the last event on his list. His ending insight on talking to the dressmaker is what will give him closure in the end. “Even though she didn’t look up, he wanted to go to her and knew that one day he would.” When Cahal is ready he will finally close the lid on his suffering and pain, but before he can do that, he must work up the courage and bravery to accomplish this daunting task. I believe his spirituality has been strengthened by this unfortunate situation, as well as his over all sense of himself.
Isabella too is in constant danger because of Manfred’s obsession to marry her. “I desired you once before,” said Manfred angrily, ... “In short, Isabella, since I cannot give you my son, I offer you myself.” Manfred’s angry tone accentuates the danger that is placed upon Isabella as the perception is given that he is forcing himself upon her. This is a result of context as women were perceived as unable to help themselves and thus a
Thetis, a sea nymph or water goddess and also Achilles mother, attempts to advise him against it even though she knows it is fated for them to fight and for his death to come after killing hector. There is nothing she can do because she knows that it has been fated. Tries to persuade him to not fight Hector, but knowing all along that he will fight any way and die after killing Hector because although she is a Goddess fate has decided his death to follow him killing Hector. Fate is such an ultimate power, not even the gods can change it as we see here and also with Zues son Sparedon. Zeus his always seen with such power and greatness, but even he becomes to the all influence of
