Everyone was sad after Johnny’s death, but mostly Ponyboy and Dally. Later that day we had to go to a rumble, which it would be greasers against some Socs. We won, but some of us got hurt, especially dally. Dally couldn’t stop thinking about Johnny’s death, it hurt him a lot because he loved him as a brother. Dally didn’t wanna live any longer because the only thing he really loved was Johnny and that was gone already so he said “it wasn’t worth to live any longer”.
The whole family including his wife/mother and father all defy the gods who they “worship” this act along with their rather guilt filled lives results in the tragic fate each of them meets. Hamartia is defined as tragic flaw or human failing and that accurately describes Oedipus’ situation and his lack of action to prevent his fate as Walton said, “Oedipus is so stricken at the thought of marrying his mother that he never thinks twice before killing an older man who stands in his way, even though the second part of the Oracle told him he would kill his father”(1). It is arguable that Oedipus did not deserve to die like this, but with such minimal effort to avoid this, it is hard to say
The other thought Victor had about suicide was, “In that hour I should die and at once satisfy and extinguish his malice.”(Shelley 158). He wanted to live no longer because the monster threatened him and he was just done with life. “Feels very sad, down, empty or hopeless.’(NIMH). Victor felt sad during this time because “I thought of Elizabeth, of my father, and of Clerval.”(Shelley 162). Victor was long away from his “sister”, his dad and his friend, he just wanted to see his family and friend.
He lived the rest of his life in nightmares and fears which denounced his actions. He realized how unscrupulous his actions were and his souls is long huanted by it. After the murder, he does not dare to put the dagger back. We could see, from this point, The warrior and Duncan’s “worthiest cousin” (1.4.15) is so terrified by his own action that a sound would scare him. While he is haunted by guilt, Macbeth has to secure his throne by murdering Banquo and Fleance.
The monsters revenge on Frankenstein, drives him too to be full of hatred and need for vengeance because he destroyed everything good in his life. He feels as the death of his loved ones is his fault because he is the one that created the horrid creature in the first place (Brackett). “As time passed away I became more calm; misery had her dwelling in my heart, but I no longer talked in the same incoherent manner of my own crimes; sufficient for me was the consciousness of them” (Shelley 158). The monster wanted Victor to feel the same thing as him, lonely and sadness. The monsters revenge works, Victor becomes rejected by people and has nobody but himself.
His aspirations for goods make him want stuff that he neither required nor could manage to pay for. Willy believes that he wishes to purchase his wife a new refrigerator even though she is satisfied with what they have. As he strives to live the American dream he honors those who have been victorious at doing so, like his successful brother. Additionally he penalizes those who did not make any efforts towards that ideal or achieve it, like his son Biff, and for the most part prominently himself. The unattainable dream that he has lived all his life was struggling to achieve has brought him to complete disappointment and a loss of wisdom in his judgments.
Besides, because of the death of his brother make he cannot accept the reality of his brother’s death. This is shown when Jack becomes an adult, he’s still remembered his childhood memories with his brother, but along with intimacy Jack finally successful as an architect. For the Mr. Obrien character’s is shown that his sadness of the death of his son, R.L. He regrets all the things that he has done to his son. Because of the pressure that he feels, he punched his son face (Jack) with no reasons.
He is a monster because not only his actions showed it, but his mind was consumed as well. Victor Frankenstein is the true monster in this novel, because he obtained this knowledge that only God should possess, he was not capable with his actions to fulfill this knowledge, and allowed his self-ambition and revenge to control him. Victor became a monster by allowing this knowledge of creation to consume his actions and mind and in the end, it destroyed him and everyone that he loved. I interpreted that Mary Shelley is trying to show us that allowing passion and desires to go uncontrolled in your life, will lead to destruction and turn you into a
Also, the monster was created not naturally born into the world. (Morrison) In the book, Victor deny the monster any love or joy because he is ugly that he describes as “when I saw the filthy mass that moved and talked, my heart sickens and my feelings were altered to those of horror and hatred” (Shelly) The quote reveals that Victor hated Frankenstein right away due to appearance only which judge the monster in an unfair way. Also, Victor made him as the perpetrator due to destroying the monster’s request for a female creature. Victor was afraid that the monster would cause more chaos with a female partner by his side; however, the monster wants someone who actually cares and loves him as the way he is for his personality. Truly, the monster is a victim because he was judged right away by his own creator.
Only nasty weeds grow in it now” (Shakespeare 1.2.132-134). In this example, Hamlet is currently talking to himself after a conversation with his mother and the current king, . Hamlet is presenting that his family has now gone wild, and that no one is capable of taking care of all the bad that is happening. Hamlet puts the blame on Gertrude because Hamlet knows that his mother started this nonsense and now there is no help to the situation. Another example of hate is when Shakespeare writes, “Yet even so, within a month of my father’s death… crying like crazy—even an animal would have mourned its mate longer than she did!—there she was marrying my uncle, my father’s brother”( Shakespeare 1.2.
He wants to love someone and feel secured by another’s love. He wants to be taken care of, since he has been all alone his whole life. We all no that he clearly has not been a monster his whole life, but he he did become one after Victor Frankenstein rejected him and refuse to see that he has to be a responsible person and own up to his creation forever. His child came into this world being defenseless and helpless. He was born to simply see his father, the person who brought him into this world and the one that was going to love
c) I can empathise with Walt McCandless, Chris McCandless’s father. “....I spent a lot of time with Chris, perhaps more than with any of my other kids. I really liked his company even though he frustrated us so often.” (Krakauer, 104) Chris and his father did not truly get along very well as Chris got older, since their personalities were so stubborn, they would fight a lot. Walt loved Chris but rarely showed it, which made Chris have a certain hate towards his father. I empathise with Walt because his son died while they were on bad terms, although he knew Chris loved him, Walt had no time to show Chris how much he loved him.
Creon is Shocked with the deaths of his wife and son and says, “Oh no, another, a second loss to break of heart. What next, what fate still waits for me? I just held my son in my arms and now, look, a new corpse rising before my eyes- wretched, helpless mother-O my son.” (Sophocles 1420-25). Creon begins to see how his pride lead him to this and sees how it could affect even more and starts to wonder what else his actions will do to him. The decision to punish Antigone he sees was not worth the death of his family.
