The tortures of hell are too mild a vengeance for thy crimes” (93). He is fully aware he the root of all problems, yet he believes the Creature to be censurable and denying to give it a chance of salvation when he breaks his promise and destroys the female creature he was working on; his actions result in his father and Elizabeth’s deaths. This also makes the
Janie is deceived by Joe because he represents empty dreams for Janie, he was a “drape [for] her dreams” Joe took advantage of Janie and manipulates her to do excessive labour for him in the store and constantly silences her. Furthermore, Joe Starks never treats Janie with respect as he views her as an object and spends his time commanding her. Joe pushes away the opportunity
She accepts knowledge of her end, and lives on with it. As these are some valid points, Creon is the true tragic hero due to his fiery arrogance and even more drastic change in character. When in a heated argument with Ismene and Antigone, he makes a furious remark to the two girls claiming that ”One has just now lost her mind; the other, It seem, has never had a mind at all,” (2.149-150). No noble or fair king would reply in that sense, as it is both disrespectful and mean-spirited. On the other hand, he does go through a humiliating change at the end, now believing in fate and having to face the fact that "[It] has brought all [his] pride to a thought of dust.”(Exodos.138).
Even though in these two stories tackle different things the main character is obsessed over, the main idea of harming other peoples lives because of their strange obsession remains the same. Clearly, obsession can really make one think so irrationally that they forget the basic principles of humanity and they end up doing ridiculous things without usually realizing until after they have taken the wrong action. The lead character in “The Tell-Tale Heart”, had gone so crazy because of his obsession over his eyes, that he decided to take the old man’s life in a very cruel way. The old man had never harmed, insulted, or wronged him in any way, and rather they both cared about each other but “it wasn’t the man who vexed me [him], but the evil eye” . Gradually, he made up his mind to take the life of the old
Jekyll and Mr. Hyde”, manifest characteristics of the Freudian structural theory. Mr. Hyde is an obvious representative for the Id because of his aggressive instincts, desire, and uncontrolled energy. He seeks instant gravitation without following any moral compass or social norms. All these characteristics are an expression of the pleasure principles that aspire fulfillment of basic bodily needs such as hunger, thirst, anger and sex. Mr. Hyde’s self- destructive and aggressive behavior proves that he not only follows the pleasure principal but also the death drive, which is commonly called “Thanatos”.
Jealousy is a major theme in Othello and this is illustrated through characterisation and the use of imagery. From the beginning of othello, the audience is aware iago is driven by jealousy and uses it as a tool to bring about the downfall of othello. His machiavellian nature was immediately shown when he stated “I follow him to serve my turn upon him.” The characterisation of Othello from the quiet and contemplated military pioneer to the visually impaired, infuriated 'darker demon ' that responders witness at last stresses, the powerful toxic substance that is jealousy. The remote chance of Desdemona 's unfaithfulness and the subject of her devotion are terrible for "valiant" Othello, he would rather "the general camp, Pioneers and all, had tasted her sweet body" than to have questions coasting in
Arise, black vengeance, from the hollow hell! (III.iii.458-462). After Othello’s second meeting with Iago he is fully convinced that Desdemona must die, falling for Iago’s trap he loses all sense of rationale. Othello’s jealousy gets the best of him and it only gets worse when he abandons the love he has for Desdemona and begins to prepare for her killing. He is fully responsible for trusting Iago, instead of questioning Iago and going to Desdemona for clarification; he believes Iago without any sufficient evidence.
It was his hands that choked William, Clerval and Justine. He was the one that seemed “to jeer” (145) as he pointed towards the corpse of Victor’s wife. This sequence, without background, puts him in the wrong. But he did not kill his victims without reason. His hatred for Victor was so intense, it fueled a mad desire for revenge.
Pride can be one of man's strongest qualities. In Sophocles' play, Antigone, the Theme of pride becomes the cause for destruction for both Creon and Antigone in the play.. Creon's Pride blinds him to the injustice he commits against Antigone and the gods. Antigone's pride leaves her no choice but to be killed because of her beliefs. They Both automatically surrender to their own hubris and demonstrate how uncontrolled pride leads to personal downfalls and destruction in Antigone. The excessive pride of Creon and Antigone lead to their downfalls in Antigone.
His haughtiness is also well demonstrated in his response to Mr. Bingley when he tries to persuade him to dance. There is no doubt he has refused, thinking himself to be superior to the other people there, whom he is clearly referring to, according to his standards, inferior and inelegant people. Especially when he refuses to dance with Elizabeth in reply to Mr. Bingley “She is tolerable; but not handsome enough to tempt me”, first strong impression along with prejudice has been created and adhered to the two protagonists’
Don’t expect respect when you don’t show any respect, Patrick.” “Says the whore.” Her jaw drops though she quickly regains her composure, getting out of her seat to tower over mine, “You are an imbecile, Patrick Winston. Self-respect means respecting myself, and my decisions. Despite regretting my decision to sleep with that dickhead Darcy, I have loads of respect for myself. As for yours and Harry’s respect I neither care about it nor do I want it, because you two are a bunch of uneducated, misogynistic assholes that desperately need to go and fuck themselves.” She hurriedly picks up her Mt Everest of books and bolts out the classroom door, not even waiting for her name to get ticked off. Ignoring the curious looks the rest of the class and teacher are giving me, I pretend that what happens between Kora and I doesn’t bother me.
The flowers, the cards and finally the attack in the parking lot. She was very clear that she is a happy married woman. And this intention of sexual harassment was seen by the school intolerable and with a high degree of punishment. He was fired. Whatever motivated his action, falling in love with Mrs Gilbury does not justify harassment.
Hello Toni, Although several characters are mention throughout the story, the main character and focus is Montresor. He is our vile narrator. He only cares about his own point of view, which is brutal, conniving, and vengeful. In my opinion, he is insane because he would kill someone his “friend” for something so minor. He smiles while thinking of Fortunato’s destruction an pleased to kill him.
