Like Oedipus, Okonkwo is a tragic hero because his story starts with him being strong, feared, and a lady-killer. Unfortunately, he then kills his son and a court leader which leads to his downfall and ban from his home. Hamartia is the characteristic of a tragic hero that leads to his downfall. Okonkwo’s hamartia was the fact that he does not express his emotions. His lack of expressions and emotions led him to kill his son and “mistakingly,” a court leader.
I believe that hamlets actions were not justified but one is, because revenge isn’t a good thing, but Claudius is not just a murderer he is a stealer too. Claudius killed Hamlets father with the easiest but the cleverest way. He poisoned Hamlets father himself, while Hamlets father was sleeping. Then Claudius told everyone that he died of a sudden heart attack or some disease nobody knew
Alexander tortured many of his victims and then he killed them. Another reason why he was a villain because he killed members of his family so that he would become the ultimate successor to the throne. This should never be how a king becomes the ruler of his kingdom, ever. Even though I believe that Alexander the Great is a villain, others may think he was a hero. They may think that because he had conquered so many other nations.
He had killed so many people that he feels that there is no hope for him to be saved, so he doesn’t care how many more people he will have to get rid of in order to stay king and be safe. Macbeth has got so bad to where even the witches are calling him wicked. He thinks that he is so manly because he has killed many people in order to have the prophecies keep coming true, but he lost his manhood when he no longer cared about what was going to happen to him and his wife, before she killed herself. Clearly, you can see in each act that Macbeth is slowly losing his manhood because of all the wrong doings caused by the greed for power that he wants. Lady Macbeth has killed herself over the guilt that she has over killing Duncan and it didn’t exactly have the same effect on her husband as it normally would.
Just like how the white men “drove him to kill himself and know he will be buried like a dog”. (Pg.208) This means that he hanged himself because he could not go on with the white people taking over the village but no one wanting to do anything about it. So at night “He mourned for the clan, which he saw breaking up and falling apart.” (Pg.183) This is because of the white man having people changing their religions. This is why okonkwo is a tragic hero and many many more reasons. That I believe he is a tragic
“Feel very sad, down, empty, or hopeless have very little energy have decreased activity levels.”(NIMH). Victor felt rage, “Villain! Before you sign my death-warrant, be sure that you are safe.”(Shelley 158). Victor felt this way because his creation killed his brother and put the blame on his other loved one. The other thought Victor had about suicide was, “In that hour I should die and at once satisfy and extinguish his malice.”(Shelley 158).
As if it never existed. Sobibor was not a well known camp. But, many lives were lost to the wrath ,of a horrible man, by the name of Adolf Hitler. Now, all that is left at the former site of Hitler's death camp, Sobibor , is the mound of ashes of those whose lives were stolen, to remind us that this cannot repeat itself. To remind us of all the broken, innocent souls, who had once experienced freedom.
The Holocaust is arguably one of the most disastrous genocides in history. Hitler and his men killed millions of Jews during his reign and it seemed like nothing can stop them. No one dared to speak of the Holocaust and its events that happened. However, there seems to be a secret weapon that can destroy the silence. Voices that speak up about the events are able to paint a picture for the people who had not witnessed the Holocaust for themselves.
A common question you may hear from the readers of Hamlet is, “Was it really worth it for Hamlet to kill all of those innocent people to avenge his father’s death?” Well, if you think about it in a more technical way, Hamlet was asked by his father’s ghost to avenge him of being murdered by Claudius, and along the way of Hamlet’s plans, he took the whole situation overboard. He killed plenty more people than he was assigned to kill and none of the victims even deserved to be killed, with Claudius being the exception. In my opinion, Hamlet’s actions aren’t justified, even though his plan was to kill Claudius for the sake of his father, he began to get a little reckless and killed many other characters for no reason in the process. Some things that can’t be backed up with an excuse is the foul treatment of Gertrude, the bad treatment of Ophelia, the delaying of avenge and the final killing of Claudius. According to (doc c), Gertrude is proven guilty by Hamlet after he kills Polonius by accident, thinking Polonius was Claudius.
None of his interactions with humans was positive, starting with his master (Chapter 15). Unlike a human baby who is exposed to many types of people, the monster only saw corruption. Thus, when it was his turn to do something, he mimicked the people he saw. Even the De Lacey family, whom he thought to be contrary to the norm, ran away from him (Chapter 16). This ultimate act of repudiation propelled him over the edge, and he ended up committing his first act of manslaughter; he killed Victor’s nephew William Frankenstein (Chapter
My name as a ghoul would be that because he is an evil man and is the brother of the guy who set off a bomb at the Boston Marathon on April 15, 2013. Tamerlan was the brother that was ran over by the other brother and shot, when they took him to the hospital they could not save him. Since he is already dead and is such an evil man and died a criminal then it would be cool devouring a very evil person. Tamerlan and Dzhokar are both really horrible murderers and, they did not have any reason to set off that bomb at the end of the finish line. It was a threat to not only the people running
First of all, Asoka killed many innocent people for land. He approximately killed 200,000 people in the war of kalinga . When Asoka tried to bargain the land for money the kalinga leader refused. Asoka wanted the land for himself so one day he started war with kalinga and drove 150,000 people out of their country. Second of all, Asoka fought for land.
Genocides are the worst possible thing that mankind can do. Yet many genocides are just swept under the rug and forgotten about.Thats why it is important to be educated on them so we can try to prevent Genocides from reoccurring. The Cambodian genocide was one of the worst ever. Over the span of four years between 1.7 to 2 million Cambodians were killed. It all started when a man named Khmer Rouge seized control of the Government in 1975.
Respect and the high self esteem Germans held plummeted to an all time low. “Losing” WWI couldn’t be proclaimed as the detriment to Germany’s society, something that could renew the hope in the people that it’s once great country could make a comeback. A young Adolf Hitler provided this answer, this answer being the Jews. A few years later and a couple more in prison led to the anti-Jew, gypsy, gay, disabled, and any other conflicting religion Germany of WWII. Millions of innocent people were murdered, sparking a flame that would scorch many lands
Okay now I am not for the military walking around the middle east and killing everyone, but I hate hearing all the times there was a time to kill a terrorist leader like I don 't Know Bin Laden or another HVT, just because there are a few innocent people near by, and here 's why. The people who are wanting to "spew American blood" are also raping and killing people every day in the middle east. Lets take Tora Bora, as many of you know Osama Bin Laden was to blame for the 9/11 attacks, well 3 months later we had him pinned down in Tora Bora Afghanistan, so here is what Bush is considering, strike the town with a predator drone and risk civillian casualties or just don 't do anything basically. Well as history has shown us he didn 't do anything. Luckily we got him 10 years later but by then he had already killed thousands of more innocent lives.
