The Destruction of the Belle Reve Tennessee William’s A Streetcar Named Desire is a wonderfully tragic story of the delusional Blanche DuBois, whose lies are unfolded and destroyed by the misogynist Stanley Kowalski. Throughout the play, Blanche frequently lies about her past, who she is, and what she’s done. Each lie she tells slowly unravels the next until she is caught, drowning in her own pathetic lies, forced to surrender to the malicious consequences dealt by Stanley. Similar to James Gatz, Blanche is obsessed with covering up her past actions, and creating a thin cloak of lies; however, James’ past is merely one of social degradation, Blanche carries the weight of her own horrible decisions. Blanche’s past and her attempts to mask it,

Prince Creon knows that by granting Medea a sliver of time it could come back to haunt him.

When Medea kills her children, the Chorus Leader tells her that she is a “hard and wretched woman, just like stone or iron.” (1517) The Chorus Leader is shocked that Medea would follow through with such a horrific deed.

She does this by making Macbeth feel distressed during her process of coercion. Her final step of inducement consists of turning Macbeth’s own gender against him, “When you durst do it, you were a man” (i.vii.50). This ultimately is the shifting point of the Macbeth’s companionship. Lady Macbeth is so consumed in her own greed that she loses the love of Macbeth throughout the process of enticement. Lady Macbeth is such a strong character that she can maintain a role of innocence while being the centre of control when planning a murder in internal disguise.
“The Crucible” is a novel by Arthur Miller that focuses on what fear and ignorance can do in society. This book is a tragic tale in which the other woman, Abigail Williams, seeks vengeance when her lover, John Proctor, turns from her and back to his wife, Elizabeth. Abigail is the most responsible for the deaths that occurred during this time because she was the ringleader of all the young girls during this witchcraft escapade. Although she is guilty for these crimes, she does not feel remorse for it, except perhaps her lover getting caught in the crossfire.

Even Myrtle, who chased after Tom’s wealth eventually falls in love with him, was murdered “because hope based on money can only bring death” (Samkanashvili 1). Myrtle’s death can also be seen as ironic, as she is running towards the car she believes the man she loves is driving. Almost every character experiences betrayal, but those who experienced true love are met with
She tells lies, manipulates her friends, and the town as a whole, ultimately sending nineteen innocent people to their death.
