Maat, that crucial cosmic order, was important to Hatshepsut.” This shows that by doing something that was favorable in the people shows that Hatshepsut was a good ruler. My last supporting detail that shows that Hatshepsut was an effective ruler because she had the traits of one. “women had not ruled long or well, and neither had had the audacity to proclaim herself pharaoh. Hatshepsut would be different.”says in paragraph 13. This shows that she was a bold woman and that is important in leading a country.
She risked so much not knowing if any of it would pay off. As she described living with the Jewish family, “Jews in hiding couldn’t be visible, so I stayed with them, it was the right thing to do.” (Burns 1). She had no strong ties to the Jewish faith and yet, of her own free will risked her life to help, for no other reason than that she knew that what was going on around her was wrong, and she wanted to do whatever she could to stop it. And how even after the war ended and she was free to go back to her normal life, she decided to continue working as a social worker to help those displaced in the war find their surviving family. People can learn from this that we need to stand up and show the same moral courage that Pritchard exhibited, and when faced with these types of injustices to take a risk to fight against them instead of hiding in fear, or simply brushing them to the side saying that there is nothing that they can do about
By doing that a huge conflict was created in the story and multiple characters had to fake that Hero was dead while they find the culprit behind this. This also happened in The Outsiders when Dally’s girlfriend cheated on him while he was in prison. By cheating on him Dally was upset over how unloyal she was and broke up with her. Another example is in the poem “ The Charge of the Light Brigade” when cavalry men charged at enemy lines even though it meant certain death. This showed how honor gave them the courage to face their conflict, and go through with the blunder anyways.
Rhodopis’s resourcefulness manifests itself in, not only her physical labor, but in her use of song to stay optimistic, while Raisel’s ingenuity is displayed when she tells the rabbi’s son a riddle while disguised as Queen Esther at a Purim celebration. Because both of these women live in patriarchal societies, there is little they could do to actively change their respective fates but to use the seemingly insignificant skills that they possess. Though they possess these talents, Rhodipos and Raisel also gain status through divine intervention. Both stories insist that women are not to be complex creatures, but rather pawns that are at the will and whim of the men and the divine entities that surround them, both ideas being perpetuated by each of their
“Immediately we do exile him hence. I have an interest in your hate’s proceeding” (Act iii scene 3).Romeo had just married Juliet, and he got banished because he killed Tybalt ,his joyfulness ended quickly because of his actions. Family and the things we love can be affected based on our actions, that is why we should be careful on how we act because an action that seems harmless may harm you and affect you in the over time. In the act where Romeo gets banished from Verona we can observe that his revenge led him to no good. Romeo lost a chance to live happily with his newly wed, things could’ve been different if Romeo would have left everything the way it was and not go against
Macbeth was contemplating the consequences of murdering Duncan and foresees his future of being overthrown by righteousness. He is worried that “This even-handed justice/ Commends th’ ingredience if our poisoned chalice/ To our own lips.” (1.7.10-12). Macbeth, at this point, have not been obsessed with lust for power. He raised self-awareness that the violence he used to wrongly proclaim himself king will be used to take vengeance against him. Such violence made him a “tyrant” and eventually killed by Macduff in anger of Macbeth’s crimes.
In contrast to this, Macbeth is consumed by his ambition after being influenced by the witches and his wife. “I murdered you, my son, against my will- you too, my wife…”(1461-1462) Creon regrets his actions by the end of the play. From these lines Sophocles made it even more clear that if you defy the gods, you will surely regret your actions. “Though Birnam Wood be come to Dunsinane and thou
Hamlet has come to see his mother, Queen Gertrude, and ends up stabbing Lord Polonius, which ultimately leads to his death. Lord Polonius’ final words include “O, I am slain!” Even though this provides a slight amount of comic relief to the reader, it has a reverse effect on Ophelia’s mental state. Her father’s death seems to be the potent punch in this fight because she officially goes mad after this final event. This is apparent in Scene IV Act I, when Laertes has come back to visit his sister and check on her well being. He is disappointed to see that Ophelia is displaying irrational behavior when she begins to sing “They bore him barefac’d on the bier; Hey non nonny, nonny, hey nonny; And on his grave rains many a tear.” She is so mentally ill that she must be locked in a padded room during the day.
Even though, one of the biggest changes is that the tyrant Creón now is a dictator even more perverse and cruel than in “Antigone”. Moreover, in the act of love and loyalty to her friends Antígona is considers a traitor to the city and the punishment for this is death unless she confesses to her crimes. Previously, Antígona challenges the government and Creón himself when she buries the two brothers Tavares in their own land. They were supposed to be exposed to the public eye as a warning for everyone who dare to defy Creón’s dictatorship. One of the best traits of Antígona is her stubbornness and strength of her heart to not let anyone manipulate her in her way to the true goal which is to see justice.
Prince Escalus understood this, and when the news of Romeo and Juliet’s deaths breaks, he initially claims that “All are punished”(V.iii.305), but when he realizes that this is untrue (as he finishes up his speech) - he is to blame and so are the feuding houses, but were the citizens really to blame? - he changes his tune, deciding that, “Some shall be pardoned, and some punishéd”(V.iii.319). The Prince’s initial claim supports the idea of the lovers’ deaths being fate, and hence resulting in the punishment of them all. His second, reflected upon, and thought over, claim stands with the idea that fate is simply a scapegoat, a construct created to ease their conscience, and he revises his initial claims of it being everyone’s fault, even when most were not involved. Of course, everyone in Verona can not be to blame for such a disastrous event, and while most did, it would not be just to blame everyone for the act of some.
Contrary to most people 's knowledge, she is overjoyed in the new found freedom she now possesses, but still cannot express. The idea of having to conform outwardly hurt Janie. She had no desire to hide herself, but did for the hope of a happy marriage. It wasn’t until after Jody’s death that Janie let out her hair which Jody commander her to do. Janie’s hair was an important symbol of her true, individual self.
Yet, unlike Daniel, Susanna’s own reputation, thoughts, and feelings about the attempted assault, the trial, and/or her acquittal are irrelevant to the function of her story: “Hilkiah and his wife praised God for their daughter Susanna, and so did her husband Joakim and all her relatives, because she was found innocent of a shameful deed. And from that day onward Daniel had a great reputation among the people.” While, this story may focus on the actions done to Susanna, on her reputation, the true narrative belongs to Daniel and his reputation, involving his own honor and his own holiness; Susanna is a plot device to advance and accords authority to Daniel’s plot. The corruption of the elders and the deception of Israel’s people are conveyed by Biblical authors through Susanna’s narrative of assault and prosecution, and the message of God’s justification for the current Maccabean Revolt through Daniel’s tale of honor, wisdom, and
