First she tries to persuade her more reserved sister Ismene to help her. Once Antigone starts to realize her argument isn 't working she asks, “A true sister or a traitor to family?” (Sophocles et al. 190). Antigone uses a pathos or an emotional appeal here to try and convince Ismine. The appeal will help convince Ismene because no one wants to be called a traitor because it has a negative connotation.
She firmly tells her parents that she will not marry him and for that Lord Capulet says he will disown her if she dares to make such a decision. Juliet shows very less respect toward her parents and thinks that the time is in her favor. Juliet, in the beginning, would have showed much more respect that the Juliet at the end, and her change caused by her love. In conclusion, Juliet definitely changed a lot from how she was in the beginning of the book to how she acted towards the end of the book. She made decisions like committing suicide, fighting with her parents, and considering all the factors when making a decision.
The irony of withholding a proper burial from one brother, and not the other, for political reasons, leads to Antigone’s defiance of the law of the King. Antigone decides to bury Polyneices, so he can be granted a safe passage into the world of the dead, and even after hearing the disapproval of her sister Ismene, who is scared of what Creon will do to Antigone once he finds out, she says, “I have longer to please the dead than please
Antigone and Ismene, one fearless and one submissive. Antigone wishes to properly burry her brother Polyniece by contradicting to Creon edict, whereas Ismene does not follow her sister as she fears the death penalty that would be waiting for her if she went against Creon, her uncle.
She was very afraid to tell her father and was sure she’d get punished. “I wanted to say I came second so that he would know immediately, so that I would acknowledge my failure.” This doesn’t elicit a new ability from Kambili, but reveals how afraid she is of disappointing her father. Kambili also disproves Horace’s statement in the beginning of the novel when she believes everything Eugene tells her. Kambili cannot bond with her grandfather, Papa Nnukwu, because Eugene has been telling her that he is a heathen. “Because Papa Nnukwu is a pagan.
To yield is grievous, but the obstinate soul That fights with Fate, is smitten grievously.-Creon Antigone goes against the King's law in order to honor her brother and do what she believes is right. Knowing that death is unavoidable if she chooses to go down that path doesn't bother because she believes that living a morley dishonorable life is worse than living no life at all. Antigone wants to be in charge of her own life and wants to be the controller of her own fate. Between the two poems “If We Must Die” by Claude Mckay and ‘Invictus’ by William Ernest Henley the poem that best represents Antigone character is ‘Invictus’. “If We Must Die”by Claude Mckay places emphasis on a meaningful death and never giving up even when the odds aren't in your favor.
"I Beg You Brother: Do Not Die" and “Dulce et Decorum Est” are similar because they both address the issue of there being no honor in dying in war. In "I Beg You Brother: Do Not Die", the sister begs her brother not to go to war. She makes the argument that he shouldn’t be fighting in a war that the king isn’t fighting in. She believes that his idea of glory, is suicide because he knows that he will die if he goes into battle. Not only that, but he risks putting his wife and mother in a situation of disparity because of the loss.
Like above, Juliet is clearly unsatisfied by the undertakings of her parents, as a result of the feud. Although, this time she sees the fear in defying her fate, but disregarded it. “That is renowned for faith? Be fickle, Fortune.” (3.5.62). She then calls fortune, the undertakings of the feud, fickle and vows to oppose it.
Therefore, Mama Elena knows to keep the two apart and threatens Tita if she ever does anything she is not supposed to. Tita is a strong female character who undergoes many challenges such as, losing the love of her life, being mistreated by her mother, and trying to not hurt her sister’s feelings. When Tita announced that Pedro would like to speak to Mama Elena about marrying her, she was lectured about their family’s tradition and in response Tita just “lowered her head, and the realization
Lady Macbeth is very passionate that the king must die in order for Macbeth to become the King, but she is worried that he will be to “soft” to do such a thing. “ Yet I do fear thy nature, it is too full o’ th milk” ( 1.5.16). Throughout her soliloquy, she fears that his sympathy will be his downfall and will prevent him from going along with her plan. She is confident that the only way for her plan to work, is to take action right away and,”play false” (1.5.22). Macbeth won’t do anything that will harm his friend, the King, and Lady Macbeth knows that so she knows what to do, she will make sure that he will go through with the regicide.

(MIP-1) Najmah’s trigger avoidance, a vital symptom of PTSD, stems from her fear of reliving the bombing when her mother and baby brother died, but by running away to save herself, she prevents recovery by isolating herself from those who wish to help her. (SIP-A) Trigger avoidance appears in Najmah after the death of her mother and baby brother as she fears to experience the event once more. (STEWE-1) Studies have shown that when under the effect of PTSD, there are triggers which may cause the individual to live through the event again. As a result, they usually attempt to avoid the triggers which cause them pain (“Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder”). This is apparent in Najmah through the way many of her actions stem from her motives to avoid
