The second weakness of the great Odysseus was that he had a bad anger management problem. His temper truly showed when he almost cut off the head of Eurylochos when he said he would not go back to Circe’s house. Odysseus would have lost a good comrade if his crew did not stop him to make Odysseus realize his temper had sent in and took over him. The last weakness of Odysseus was a characteristic of lust in which he showed against Circe his lover. They were lovers for seven years.
On the other hand, love can bring out the best in people. For example, the main foil we see in the beginning of the book is between Romeo and Tybalt. Tybalt, due to his arrogance, brings the best out of Romeo when he is attempting to engage Romeo in a duel (Shakespeare 3.1). Romeo denies Tybalt's offer to a fight, for obvious reasons. Tybalt continues to harass Romeo while Romeo is simply complementing Tybalt in return.
Bledsoe pretended to be whatever other people wanted him to be, and it got him considerably far in life. He is a cold, arguably heartless character that quite literally disposed of any problems he ran into by exiling people from his campus, or around his campus. This is just one example Ellison uses to show how the ultimate way to win is be able to read people and control them. Bledsoe is one of the characters with the most “sight”, because he is able to see what people expect and temporarily reinvent himself to fit that. He takes advantage of other character’s blindness, and it ultimately helps him attain and keep
The director makes the argument that unorthodox behavior is worse than murder to portray that unorthodoxy threatens more than the life of one person. Unorthodoxy is so dangerous for the reason that it threatens the whole society, it strikes at society itself (pg.148). D.C.H dislikes Bernard for Bernards heretical views on soma and sport, unorthodox sex life, and refusal to obey teaching of Ford. To humiliate Bernard D.C.H exposes Bernard. For instance, he states, “ this man who stands before you hear, this Alpha-Plus to whom so much has been given, and from whom, in consequence so much must be expected, this colleague of yours or should I anticipate and say this ex colleague?
(Act2:1:37-39). The imagery used of a brain physically over-heating accentuates the idea that Macbeth is beginning to lose his sanity as his brain can no longer function accordingly due to all the incalescence. Not only does the thought of killing Duncan cause Macbeth to hallucinate but also after having ordered the murder of Banquo, his guilt stricken conscience causes him to see Banquo 's ghost. No one else at the banquet can see the ghost which emphasizes that Macbeth is losing his sanity. Macbeth asks "Which of you have done this" (Act3:4:53) after seeing Banquo 's ghost because he believes one of the guests to be playing a prank on him as he is not aware that his own mind is hallucinating due to all the remorse.
In addition, when a teenager’s amygdalae does not feel safe, the teenager feels anxiety and it becomes difficult for him or her to concentrate or think (Karen 2). This leads to Romeo make several decisions that are the outcomes of him being confused about his emotions. One of these examples is when Romeo decides to kill himself upon learning of Juliet’s supposed death. This decision is the result of Romeo’s difficulty in understanding and reacting to his emotions.

Since he is drinking and talking to Mr. Beeker while his gang is getting drunk and doing dumb things they shouldn’t be doing in a place that isn’t theirs. “Simpson pulled sternly at his drink, and Bleeker had the impression that Simpson was repressing, openly, and with pride, a vast sparkling ecstasy” (Rooney 334). The effect of what Simpson was doing made him lose control of his gang because he was drinking and doing drugs. His gang was out of control they were drinking a lot and just staring at the girls and touching them because they were scared to talk to them. “In the final analysis, we show evidence to support our claim that the contemporary biker image is one that was born of grassroots rebellion, amplified by the media, sanctioned by the government, … as it was in riding” (Austin, Gagne, and Orend 944).
According to theoretical physicist Albert Einstein, “The world will not be destroyed by those who do evil, but by those who watch them without doing anything.” An act considered evil must consist of intent to harm one in any form. William Shakespeare’s world-renowned play, Othello, The Moor of Venice, illustrates a tragedy while including villainy, which further complicates the dramatic piece of literature. Each character in the play has a roll in which they act the victim of Iago’s devious plan to destroy Othello and Desdemona’s marriage whilst portraying accomplices as well. Iago’s dishonesty with others creates a diversity of scenarios in which his vengeful deeds of wicked intention emerge as evil.
