This great downfall was caused by her flaw, so she fits these requirements of a tragic hero. A tragic hero must relize their flaw, and in the end there is no significant evidence that shows Antigone realized her flaw. Due to this lack of evidence, she can not be a definite tragic hero. Antigone hanging herself in the cave may or may not have been the turning point when she realizes her flaw, but there is a much clearer example of a tragic hero in Antigone. The character that fits all of the criteria for a tragic hero is the latter, Creon.
She argues that the characters in Pride and Prejudice are defeatist, ignorant, and, perpetually chained to each other. This stance is troubling, however, because it overlooks the meaningful aspects of Jane Austen’s work, namely the transformation of Darcy and Elizabeth’s relationship. The first point is that “there is no degree of virtue --or talent or beauty--that a good dose of arrogance cannot overwhelm and turn into something bitter and repulsive” (Puterbaugh 1). This is certainly true when it comes to the likes of Mr. Collins, with his supremely conceited attitude. Take, for example, what he spoke to the beautiful Elizabeth on the proposition of engagement.
This recognition of his position is a balm on a wounded ego and highly manipulative of Ismene, suggesting that Ismene is both more considered when making her decisions than her sister, and more politically aware and manipulative, acting in implications rather than actions as Antigone does. However the alliterative use of the voiceless velar plosive in this recognition would imply through effect that she is angry, and that this is hidden in false social niceties. This furthers the tragedy of the conflict between the family as it shows the extent to which Ismene tried to prevent harm befalling Antigone, and Haemon, who she considers ‘dear’ to her despite that as her cousin, he would not be considered close family and the political games she had to play to try and save them. It also enhances the tragedy of the close of the play, as after this scene Ismene is never seen
Although Macbeth has done some really bad deeds, he cannot be called a bad person out and out who goes on to achieve his ambitions without any consideration. He’s also a victim of the realization that there is no meaning as such in this world. This instability snatches his power to think and he gives in to his wife’s provoking speeches without providing any counter arguments to her. If he had any of his individuality left, he certainly must have had given some thought to her speeches but the lack of it shows his confusion. As soon as he joins the opposites foul and fair, he’s encountered by the weird (which is undefined because in the world of Macbeth nothing is normal).
Throughout the story, the reader can conclude that Austin’s reasoning behind the characters constant misunderstanding of the truth is that when choosing what to believe as the truth, one instinctively involves emotions and sentiments which would be misleading in the path of accessing the truth. In Pride and Prejudice, Jane is the simplest example of the falsehood of finding the truth through feelings and emotions. Her extremely sentimental character disables her from believing the actual truth because her emotions tell her otherwise. Her simple and naïve personality is a major factor in her choice to believe sweet lies rather than the bitter truth. Jane continuously refuses to accept the truth and instead chooses to believe lies she creates.
At first, he seemed great: financially stable, well dressed, young, charming, and romantic. With time however, this outer appearance would give way to the more sinister and psychologically controlling personality, which she would come to hate more than Logan. For example Joe wants to limit her freedom and feeling of beauty by giving her a job, forcing her to put up her long hair, muting her, and insulting her. Joe claims, “Somebody got to think for women and chillun and chickens and cows. I god, they sho don’t think none theirselves”(174).
A reader can infer that, although his muzzle might be robust, he finds it makes for a great distraction from his glorious self. Cyrano leads himself to believe the hearsay that he is not worthy of anything, let alone love. His corrupted mind insists he is not, and never will be, striking enough because of his nose. Cyrano’s one true love, Roxanne, has no idea he loves her because he has allowed himself to believe that she could never be in love with his beastly semblance. It is human nature to believe oneself to have worse features and flaws, which in turn leads to self-devaluing or self-destruction, as Cyrano clearly demonstrates.
“Fools rush in where angels fear to tread”, a quote from alexander pope 's an essay on criticism. Fools often engage in reckless and rash behavior. This can frequently be mistaken for the heroic traits of selfless and courageousness. This is the case in the novel the pearl. Kino plays the fool in John Steinbeck 's The Pearl because Kino blindly trusts the people and things around him, assumes The Pearl itself will solve all of his problems, and does not think his actions through.
How to find out a real person in this fake world The world as it is said often is a cruel and dangerous place where you cannot trust anyone. People tend to behave nicely and politely in front of you but then back-bitching is a favorite pass time for almost all. Many people face the difficulty to judge and differentiate between a fake and real person which can lead to several negative experiences in life. Some fake people tend to behave as genuine and nice people in front of us but actually what they are doing is actually faking. They may take advantage of our good nature and use it for their own benefit and when their need is over they may just leave us in trouble.
It moves you closer to hurting someone unintentionally. Notably, being critical solves nothing—it only creates anger and distrust to human race. It 's a road to ruin good relationships.
