The unfortunate string of events following Tybalt’s fall, including Romeo’s exile, all stem from his emotionally-driven decision to acquire vengeance, effectively portraying the birth of chaos as a result of impulsive behaviour. More notable, however, is the illustration of this idea through Jack’s abandonment of Ralph’s faction in Lord of the Flies. After seizing the conch to summon an assembly, Jack attempts to impeach Ralph through open discredit of his leadership, to no avail (Golding, 127). Humiliated and ashamed, he hastily deserts the group, asserting his estrangement from Ralph when he states, “I’m not going to be a part of Ralph’s lot−” (Golding, 127). Following Jack’s departure, Ralph’s incentive to lead the remaining boys fades, as he believes there is “‘Nothing to be
This irrational decision leads to the uproar of the Capulet family which makes the decision of Romeo’s banishment. This causes heartache for Romeo and Juliet, who now have increased their chances of not being together. As the story continues, Romeo decides to return to see Juliet after he hears that she has “died”. Andrews explains that this rash decision only makes things worse: “He disregards the Prince’s prohibition against further bloodshed and takes the enactment of ‘Justice’ into his own hands” (Andrews). Andrews explains that Romeo pushes aside his prohibition and his irrational attribute rises to try to take control of the circumstance.
Considering Ophelia becomes completely insane from Hamlet’s denunciation of his love for her, Hamlet’s fortuitous murder of Polonius, and his abrasive confrontation with Gertrude. In addition, his actions even triggers Claudius to attempt to subdue him, but only end up in the death of Rosencrantz and Guildenstern, who fell victims to the destructive and bloody path Hamlet had carved to the throne. Undoubtedly, it is all these events that certainly personify the estranged heir, as both a diabolical, and covetous heir. As his willingness
In this story written by Cicero, he is ridiculing, (rightfully so), and explaining every reason to Catiline why he deserves punishment and negative sanctions. Catiline’s intentions were to destroy Italy and all the people because of a feud that happened between him and Cicero. The feud was that the two of them were running for a consul position, but because Catiline’s intentions were known to everyone, he was banned from running, therefore, he got mad. While ridiculing and explaining to Catiline, Cicero wouldn’t allow him to speak, but then again, what would he have said? How would he respond to: “You need to die!
It is revealed that Mosca suffers the torments that surround him because he “was the cause of the division of Florence into the feuding Guelph and Ghibelline parties.” Because he caused this massive war that resulted in a huge separation and intense pain and suffering, misery in Hell befalls him. Dante speaks to the lost soul, saying that he was the cause of the death of his clan. These words upset Mosca and send him into a frenzy, afterwhich, he flees from the
“Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely” said historian Lord Acton. In Sophocles’ Antigone, Oedipus the King of Thebes newly departs after disgracing his people, and his successors to the throne, Polynices and Eteocles die in battle, thus leaving his brother Creon to inherit his throne. From the beginning, Creon uses his newfound power to impose excessive punishments against not only the people of Thebes, but also his family. As a result, the Thebans recognize his abuse of power, and express their fears through not only the chorus, but also his son. To finalize his play, Sophocles exposes how Creon uses his power to manipulate the hierarchy in Greek society; consequently offending the gods.
These thoughts trouble him, and strip him of his acquired Venetian traits and leave him with his base Moorish ones. Othello becomes violent, and begins to grow violent towards Desdemona. He threatens to “chop her into messes” (Shakespeare, 4.1.219), and while “striking her,” calls her the “devil” (Shakespeare, 2.1.268). Othello’s physical and mental abuse of Desdemona starkly contrasts the intense love he feels for her at the beginning of the play, and only begins after Iago makes him aware of the implications of his race upon his actions. The cunning manipulator makes Othello aware of his race, and incessantly reminds the general of his blackness
This abandonment caused him to grow resentful and violent. After the monster is abandoned for a second time he proclaims “I declared everlasting war against the species and more than all, against him who had formed me” (Shelley 121) and says “my feelings were those of rage and revenge.” (Shelley 121)
