This much is true for Victor’s failure to take responsibility for not only teaching his creation about life but also failure to take responsibility for the actions of his creation. “Frankenstein! You belong then to my enemy… you shall be my first victim” (153). Victor’s knows that he is responsible for the death of William because he abandoned his creation and made the monster learn the hard way that he would not be accepted into society.

When his father explained that he murdered wellington, Chris lost his mind. He confesses, “QUOTE”(122). Christopher’s response to his father’s action symbolizes what conflict does to him. When something bad happens to Christopher he cannot deal with it, ruining his mindset. Not to mention his relationship with his father.
He was to the point where he thought it would just be easier to die than to live with all these struggles. Hamlet’s uncle Claudius killed his father which put a huge burden on his shoulders because he loved his father so much. What made it even worse was his mom, Gertrude, ended up marrying Claudius short after King Hamlet 's death. After the king was murdered, Hamlet saw his father’s “ghost” which told him that Claudius was in fact the one that killed him and that he wanted Hamlet to seek revenge for him by killing Claudius, but not to punish his mother for remarrying. He said it is not his place to do so and that heaven will judge her when it comes time.
Though, when the killing of the neighbour's dog, Wellington occurs, Christopher's carefully constructive universe is threatened. Christopher's father, Ed Boone's temper is proven to have caused him to murder the dog and also lie to his son about his mother. When Ed confesses his crimes to Christopher, he refers to his temper metaphorically as "when that red mist comes down …". Haddon's realistic portrayal of family is shown to be destroyed as Ed's temper is what is undoing his relationship with Christopher. Haddon’s portrayal of Ed Boone allows him to represent interesting ideas about the family unit.
The cruel, bizarre, and unethical behaviors exhibited by Hamlet and his family stem from the severe depravity of mind from which they all suffer. Hamlet’s lack of moral character is illustrated in many different cases. For example, when Hamlet was writing in his journal after he is visited by the Ghost of his father, he wrote, “So Uncle, there you are. Now it is time to deal with the vow I made me to my father” (Act I Scene 3, 110). Hamlet, driven mad by grief, vowed to the Ghost that he would have revenge for his father’s murder, a clear example of his loss of moral conduct and his being overtaken by evil.
When Oedipus finally discovers the truth about his past, his mother hangs herself before Oedipus could talk to her. As a result, he blinds himself with her necklace in order to punish himself for all the consequences he has lead up to this occurrence. However, before Oedipus stabs himself he states, “No more,// No more shall you look on the misery about me, // The horrors of my own doing” (Sophocles 69)! Oedipus repeats the words “No more” twice, this reinforces his negative thoughts about himself as he feels extremely ashamed of his actions and the consequences of his father 's death as well as the marriage with his mother. Through the repetition, it is clear that he is determined about his viewpoint and expresses self-destructive behaviors that inhibit Oedipus and as a result, he starts recapping the events repeatedly in his mind.
On his journey to get away from whom he thought were his parents, Oedipus kills a group of men. Oedipus is blind to the fact that one of the men was King Laius, who he will later learn was his father. Although the very poor and cruel decisions that Oedipus and Jocasta make ultimately lead them to their fate, they were blind to the extent of most of their decisions. Once Oedipus and Jocasta learn that they are mother and son, they are both mortified. Jocasta commits suicide because she is so ashamed of her decisions.
Almost more impatient however is my son, Telemachus. He misses his father dearly and is furious at the suitors for disrespecting me as well as Odysseus 's honor in his own home. He said that "the men are eating through all they have, courting his mother, and using his house as if it were theirs to wreck and plunder" (Homer 723). He has left on a mission to find his lost father. I was angry that he went behind my back but even more so, I worry for his safety.
The fear of killing a boy his age would haunt him forever. Lastly, he shows he is fearful when people were going to die. He killed bob because he thought that Ponyboy was going to get killed, and he jumped into that church, risking his life to save many children 's lives. I think he didn 't want to see other lives go to waste after he took one himself. Johnny had a good reason to be scared.
