In The Maid’s Tragedy, Evadne is tasked with killing the king by Melantius, who, despite having an entire army at his back, “will not fight” (3.2.232) against the king with brute force. However, while Evadne is charged with the task of murder by her brother, who threatens to make his “sword be [her] lover” (4.1.97), she, when asked by the king “what bloody villain provoked [her] to this murder” (5.1.104), replies with: “Thou, thou monster” (5.1.105). Evadne’s reply is significant because it allows her — “a woman” (5.1.128) — to assume the more active role in the plot against the King, with revolutionary consequences: she kills the king herself. Literary scholar, Peter Berek indicates that Evadne’s decision to take revenge “stands in notable contrast to the conspiratorial dithering of her brothers” (Berek 370) and the “clowning of Aspatia’s father” (370) because she decides that she “must kill him, / And that [she] will do’t bravely” (The Maid’s Tragedy 5.1.26-27). The fact that Evadne participates in “wars [that] are nak’d” (2.1.2) conflicts, which require her to “undress” (2.1.1) for “battle,” lends further credence to the idea that she is a warrior in play.

You have thrown it all away. You are shallow and stupid” (Dorian Gray, 63). This disconnect between the two underscores how Sibyl killed Dorians love. This is more of a metaphorical killing of love, but Oscar Wilde shows a more literal meaning behind killing their love. When Henry says “My letter----don’t be frightened----was to tell you that Sibyl Vane is dead” (Dorian Gray, 71) Dorian is shaken about how his drastic actions caused Sybil to kill herself.
