B. Death the godfather is the antagonist. It was shown as antagonist when he gave warning to his godson after he cheated him (p. 14). Later he totally became against his godson when the son cheated for the second time and the death killed him (P. 14).

This fear controls his decisions in life; Okonkwo forces his actions to depict only masculinity, but this creates an internal conflict. The internal conflict, of whether to display weakness or strength, is described through the death of Ikemefuna. Okonkwo’s internal conflict and fear of resembling his father overwhelms him, causing him to commit suicide. His death is shameful in his culture, demonstrating weakness, and it connects him with his father. Okonkwo’s need for masculinity eventually leads to his disgraceful death, revealing him as
The earliest of his internal conflicts is when his mother married his uncle, Claudius, in such a short window of time after his father’s death. He expresses his feeling in his “heart, for I must hold my tongue” (1.2.160). This is an important quote because it is important to understand because it allows to the reader to see that Hamlet cannot speak to anyone about how he feels. As an effect to his decision of not speaking out, this allowed for rage and discomfort to grow inside him which will be one of the main reasons as to why he is legitimately going insane. With these various stressors in his life, it gives more evidence and reasoning to why he often experienced constant signs of depression and suicidal thoughts.
Reflecting on the road to Delphi and the altercation between King Laius and Oedipus, both exhibit blind precipitateness when they jump to violence to solve their disagreement, much like Rostam exhibited in killing his wife’s “brother” Zindeh, and Sohrab, killing his captive Hujir, the two men that could have told the two men that could have ended the father-son fight before it began (Ferdowsi). It was expeditious rage that kept the truth from being revealed in each of these violent altercations, within each tragic tale, leaving one man ruined and the other man
An instance of this is when Okonkwo killed Ikemefuna, who was basically his adoptive son and whom he had grown very fond of but had been sentenced to death, “dazed with fear, Okonkwo drew his machete and cut him [Ikemefuna] down. He was afraid of being thought weak” (Achebe, 44 Online). In that moment he feared that if he didn’t kill his son he would be seen as weak, so he executed his son just to prove his devotion and strength. Ikemefuna’s execution exemplifies Okonkwo’s
“Desired” means willing and strongly want to, it illustrates how strong the thoughts of Stephen of hurting his brother. “Device” also reveals his desire of his brother to feel disturbed about his critical words. However, Stephen’s unwilling of forgiving others’ sin eventually leads him to sin towards others. Even though Stephen sins to John with hatred, he eventually feels guilty and confesses his sin. On the last day before his son is hanged, Stephen goes up to the top of the mountain and immerses in his memories: “He
Hurst suggests that expectations are also a form of egotism that can lead to resentment; hence coming into conflict with one’s identity, such as alteration and remorse. Doodle’s desire was to be loved and supported by his family. He was invalid - he could not walk; thus everyone had low expectations towards him and thought he would die except for Aunt Nicey. His brother (the narrator) tried to kill him as he saw him an unbearable disappointment and his father had built him a mahogany coffin. For instance, “It was I who renamed him [...] Crawling backwards made him look like a Doodlebug, […] because nobody expects much from someone called Doodle.” Society’s attentiveness is predominantly towards the aspects of and in this story Doodle’s impairment seemed to have negative impacts on him that the society has caused.
For instance, Dr. Rank was punished with tuberculosis he inherited from his father who was very promiscuous. By having Dr. Rank inherit an illness from his father, Ibsen hints at the misdeeds by Nora’s father to Nora. While Dr. Rank received a physical manifestation of the punishment for his father’s misdeeds, Nora was given a more internal punishment as a result of her father. Nora’s suppression of her opinions, essentially everything that should have made her a distinct individual, and her series of exiles all started with her father. “When I was at home with Papa he told me his opinion about everything, and so I had the same opinions; and if I differed from him I concealed the fact, because he would not have liked it (pg 66).” As seen in this statement by Nora, Nora would give up her opinions in order to please her father and remain the dutiful daughter her father expects her to be.
You work your heart out...", from these words we can see how angry and disappointed Juror #3 was towards his son. He was connecting negative memories of his son to the young suspect. So, the imagination of the young man who killed his father was absolutely intolerable to him. His disappointment and hatred for his son inadvertently made him certain that the child did killed his father. He allowed his own personal experiences to intrude into the judge which should be dispassionate and objective.
