"No, dearest Georgiana, you came so nearly perfectly from the hand of Nature, that this slightest defect, which we hesitate to term a defect or a beauty, shocks me as being the visible mark of earthly imperfection." Alymer sees this mark as something ruining an almost perfect canvas. Knowing her husband views this mark, which she believes is a charm her whole life, as a defect really hurts her self-esteem. Now something she once viewed as a charm she now is almost as disgusted by it as Alymer is. She cannot bear to look at herself in the mirror or to see her real beauty.
In lines 599 to 601, Creon’s states that, due to his selfishness and stubbornness, he will not allow a woman, that woman being Antigone, to change his mind and defy his judgement. He declares that, if Antigone chooses to not change her ways, she will be killed, as to not waver from his own decree. Antigone therefore dies as a result of Creon’s insufferable and ignorant ruling, causing her to suffer at Creon’s hand. Creon’s ruling for the murder of Antigone also causes Haemon to suffer. Creon finds Haemon, in his last moments, mourning the loss of Antigone, “now among the dead, his father’s work,” as described by the messenger in line 1364.
Although Brutus justified the killing of Caesar to the citizens of Rome, it seems as if he was not able to justify it to himself. As a result the ghost of Caesar was not the revival of Caesars spirit but rather it was physical manifestation of Brutus' guilty conscience. The death of Portia seemed to have a profound effect on Brutus as well, this can be clearly recognized as Brutus was visibly sadder after hearing of his wife's death. This sadness could be attributed to the fact Brutus thinks that he himself is responsible for Portia's death. It was revealed in the story that She killed herself because she was worried about Brutus absences and that Octavius and Mark Antony had made themselves to strong.
Cursed sons, and a mother for cursing! Death take you all – you and your father” (Euripides 20). Her irrational decision is caused by the misery she is in, and it overrules her rational thinking. The threatening tone she gives her children helps illustrate the fact that she plans to have death take her children & Jason, due to Jason’s betrayal to her. Even her children are endangered due to her irate state of mind.
Since his mother is treating him like she is disappointed in him, James begins to devolve into a state of repressed bitterness. These lies are his way of expressing himself in a new reality to match his wishes. One example of this is when James says, “Felt like a failure. My lying had that effect on her. She took it personally… She thought
There was irony using superstition imagery throughout on Mrs Johnstone as she believed the lie that Mrs Lyons told her that “if either twin learns that he was one of a pair, they shall both immediately die”. Yet she realised that she had made a terrible mistake by going against her instincts soon after. Therefore, by the narrator using superstition imagery, it’s reminding her of her foolishness and hence her most costly mistake. Thus the audience know that she is haunted by her past constantly. It sufficed to say that most of the consequences and most of the happenings in the play can be traced back to superstition.
As the play progressed many things started changing when both her father and brother demand her to stop seeing Hamlet. As things worsen up the manipulation plot developed and when Polonius died everything went down for Ophelia. Ophelia was just a muppet for Polonius, Hamlet, and Claudius that did not deserve to end in such a tragic manner. She always believe that Hamlet loved her as well as her father and was just the messenger to her both of them conquer what they really wanted. Ophelia’s dead was very tragic but did not deserved to die for the evilness the surrounded
He does not even recognize his own faults at all, only seeing the effects and realizing that he must have done something without knowing what. Antigone, on the other hand, continues to resist the government not because she is an idiot doomed to die, but because she knows that obeying the gods and serving traditions will grant her peace that Creon cannot find. She is hailed a hero by the commoners while Creon cries at his wife’s and son’s graves. As his happiness levels rocket downwards as the play goes on, it can be analyzed that he is the one and only true tragic
Othello is tricked into believing that desdemona has been unfaithful and in the end he kills her. The men in Othello mistrust the women and always quick to associate them with being deceptive and unfaithful. Even in the beginning of the play there are hints of mistrust in women. For an example, when Brabantio discovers that Desdemona married Othello he says, “Fathers, never trust your daughters just because they act obedient and innocent” (1.1.15-17). Brabantio implies that women put on an act and pretend to be trustworthy.
While there, he asks her with complete seriousness: “Do you think there’s something in me that drives women crazy?” (Plath, 1971, p. 237). Despite reassuring Buddy that her illness and Joan’s suicide had nothing to do with him, he was definitely affected by her situation. Arguably, so was Joan, as Joan at least pretended that she exhibited symptoms at first so that she could be put in the same private mental health clinic as Esther. Esther’s depression also brought shame and insecurity to her
