This scar from the Green Knight helped Gawain to realize his faults and the things that make us human in life. As he realizes these imperfections it says, “Gawain stood their speechless for what felt like a century, so shocked and ashamed that his stomach churned and the fire of his blood brought flames to his face and he wriggled and writhed at the other man’s words.” (179). The Green Knight had tested Gawain and by being honest two-thirds of the time, Gawain was allowed to live, even though he would always live in shame from that moment on. Others believed that he was brave and stood up, but Gawain was ashamed while the knights thought he was honorable. “And he showed them the scar at the side of his neck, confirming his breach of faith, like a badge of blame… though this I suffered a scar to my skin… So that slanting green stripe was adopted as their sign, and each knight who held it was honored forever, all meaningful writings on romance remind us: an adventure when happened in the era of Arthur, as the chronicles of this country have stated clearly.” (187-189).
Although his actions are forgivable, Hale has a hard time forgiving himself as seen by when he says, “There is blood on my head! Can you not see the blood on my head!” (4.66). This metaphor is used to communicate that he holds himself to be responsible for all of the deaths that have taken place during the witch trials and struggles to forgive himself. As a result of this guilt, it leads him to make one last attempt to remedy the damage he had caused, ultimately earning him sympathy, respect, and

Lister tries to save many patients with antisepsis, but Bliss doesn’t use it which could be the biggest reason Garfield died. Finally, the other doctors are all there to treat Garfield to save him but are shooed away or not given much of a role in his treatment by Bliss. It was the bad intentions of Dr. Doctor Willard Bliss that killed Garfield in the end, but it brought about some much needed change in the country: the President would always be protected while out in public, antisepsis was widely adopted after Garfield’s autopsy revealed Bliss’s numerous mistakes, and President Arthur worked to end the spoils system. Garfield’s death was one that could have been prevented if a man with the right intentions had been in charge of his medical care.

“ Mistakes made by a foolish mind, cruel mistakes that bring on death.” (1406 to 1407.) In this quote, King Creon of Thebes is acknowledging that he has made tragic mistakes, because he wanted to the laws of his state, that he put in place, instead of preserving the safety of his family, which consequently lead to suffering for many. In the play Antigone, by Sophocles, the character Creon makes decisions based on what he feels is right, and refuses to pay attention to other’s advice. His stubbornness and selfishness prove fatal, and as a consequence of his moral deficiency, he kills an innocent woman, and loses his son in the aftermath. In the play Antigone, by Sophocles, Creon’s deadly stubbornness and selfishness in ignoring the pleas and

Above all was the sense of hearing acute.” (Poe 37) “I heard all things in the heaven and in the earth,” with this he loses all credit to a healthy mental state (Poe 37). First, he is attempting to convince you that killing the old man was what he had to do. He is not mad.
The purpose of The Importance of Being Earnest was to satirise the Victorian traditions, false courtesy, and the superficiality of status and the quest for love and marriage. These manifests itself in Jack through his superiority toward his foil, Algy, who doesn't adhere to social protocol, and his deluded hope for a life with Gwendolyn, whom Jack views as a solution to his problems and a way to heighten his status, not as a life partner. Furthermore, putting emphasis on his delusion and hypocrisy. The hyperbolic "we will be the picture of perfection", "That satisfaction will come when, and only when, I have Gwendolyn as my wife" and derisive "the irony of which was evidently, though not shockingly, lost on him" are reflections of this and create cohesion between the character in the play and the
