Proserpina is scared. She defied Ceres requests and made a go at investigating in the forest. When she got a quick look at the most delightful plant she had ever seen, she chose to tear it starting from the earliest stage take back to Ceres. In any case, Proserpina did not know, that once she tore the plant starting from the earliest stage would be opening a gap that would prompt King Pluto and his Rose Palace. King Pluto took a stab at tricking her to him however once he saw that she didn't wish to coordinate with him he abducted her.
Therefore he covered her mouth and thus led to her neck being snapped. At the beginning of the book Lennie did something similar to another girl, he wouldn’t let go of her dress, luckily George was there to stop him and help him let go of the dress unlike in this situation George wasn’t there to make him let go of Curley’s wife. Resulting in him accidentally killing her. The previous incident similar to this one foreshadowed the incident and death of Curley’s wife. By Steinbeck using foreshadowing throughout the book he’s slowly showing the crushing of this fragile dream that George and Lennie
While the girl “struggled violently under his hands,” Lennie, instead of stopping, could not control his body and threw her to the ground, snapping her neck (Steinbeck 91). It was not until after the action was done that he realized what had happened. Curley’s wife did not deserve to die, and though Lennie could not help it, he was a tremendous hazard to those around him. Logically speaking, George possibly could have been saving numerous other innocent individuals’ lives by killing
The only way the convicted could save themselves was if they accused someone else (Dector 1). This meant that anyone could be proven innocent by blaming someone else, causing multiple people to be accused. By the end of the play, nineteen innocent people are hanged due to the accusations (Dector 1). The accusations of the witch trials were to be taken seriously, but it was all controlled by young girls who did not know the consequences. Reputation was one of the major causes of the dispersion of hysteria.
While he’s in jail, Abigail asks him to run away with her to Boston so that they could be together and so that he wouldn’t get hung; John refuses. John is put on a trail and won’t confess to witchcraft, so he is hanged. The whole reason Abigail started all this witchcraft mess was so that she could get rid of Elizabeth and marry John, and John is the one who ends up getting killed. If Abigail and John never would have had an affair, then Abigail wouldn’t have wanted to marry him, and she wouldn’t have asked Tituba to do Voodoo, which is what gets the girls in trouble to start with. John and Abigail’s affair caused them to have a complicated relationship, which turned into Abigail doing Voodoo, which led to the girls getting caught and being accused of witchcraft.
Despite all the promises of peace, the Burgundians were on the move to capture Joan because of all the trouble that she caused them and their English allies. Her troops were surrounded by Burgundian forces behind the Mont-de-Clairoix. She decided to not abandon her soldiers and she as well was trapped outside the city and pinned up against the river. The Burgundians surrounded and forced Joan and her army to surrender. Of course, she refused and sadly was pulled off her horse and Lionel of Wandomme made her his captive.
From the beginning she was obstinate, and was prepared to die. Unlike Creon, Antigone was a little more open minded to her prideful actions and knew that they would lead to her utter deterioration. She said, “Go your own way; I will bury my brother; And if I die for it, what happiness!” This proves that Antigone knew the inevitability of her own death, but she was prideful to the point of being stubborn. Likewise, pride was Antigone's downfall when she ended up killing herself. She did this because she had too much pride to have her life taken away by another, so she took it from herself.
For instance, she was planning on killing Rikki-Tikki and the family so that she and Nag could be king and queen of the garden (paragraphs 49-51). This proves she’s selfish because she wanted to kill them just so she and her family could live happily. This event doesn’t display the theme because even though she had the courage to kill Rikki-Tikki and the family, she didn’t achieve her goal. In addition, Nagaina threatens to kill Teddy again as revenge because Rikki-Tikki killed Nag (paragraph 84). This shows that Nagaina is wicked because she is threatening to kill a little boy, but fails anyway because Rikki-Tikki defeats her.
Being his wife she has even darker plans for him before he was even thinking of doing anything about the crown. She hatches a plot to frame the guards for the murder by leaving the knife Macbeth uses to kill the King near them while they are drugged. Macbeth does the deed of killing Duncan but brings the knife back and is very set back by what he just did and completely forgets he is supposed to leave the knife near the guards to make it look like they did. Lady Macbeth goes back and does this herself showing her utter ruthlessness to get Macbeth on the throne more than he really even wants to. She questions his ability to do the task, “IF we should fail?
