But he has no choice but to let Justine take the fall for the death of his brother because he fears being seen as a madman. Later when Victor is told by his monster that he would leave to South America if Victor makes a second creation, he agrees until he selfishly destroys the second creation. “You have destroyed the work which you began...Do you dare to break your promise?” (181). Victor knew the consequences. He failed his parental duty to take care of his child and his needs and as a result he got Elizabeth killed.
“Feel very sad, down, empty, or hopeless have very little energy have decreased activity levels.”(NIMH). Victor felt rage, “Villain! Before you sign my death-warrant, be sure that you are safe.”(Shelley 158). Victor felt this way because his creation killed his brother and put the blame on his other loved one. The other thought Victor had about suicide was, “In that hour I should die and at once satisfy and extinguish his malice.”(Shelley 158).
On his journey to get away from whom he thought were his parents, Oedipus kills a group of men.

Sophocles gives purpose to Haemons’s suicide by demonstrating that its cause was not only his love but also to expose his father’s illogical and prideful actions. He states “Then she’ll die—and in her death kill someone else.” after Creon refuses to change his mind because of his pride. He states this in love because he doesn 't want to live without her so he 'll die with her. The character attempts to convey his emotional frustration as the final possible way of getting his father 's attention on this subject. His father responds by saying “are you so insolent you threaten me?” he answers “where’s the threat in challenging a bad decree”.
Sophocles also shows the consequences of actions throughout the whole play, to even include the messenger fearful for his life bringing the message of sighting the buried body, but if he didn’t carry the message when he tells Creon ‘I can suffer nothing more than what is in my fate’. Creon had to deal with the consequences of his actions after entombing Antigone, his son’s wife to be, his son committing suicide to be with his wife in the afterlife and then Creon’s own wife also killing herself out of anguish of the death of her second son. Sophocles wanted to show, regardless of whether you believe in the archaic gods, monotheism, or even if you believe that the rules laid down by the king of the city should be the only rules your actions in this life will always have consequences. As Oliver Taplin notes in his book Greek Tragedy in action, ‘great drama makes universals concrete, and portrays the human condition through the voice and the actions of the human

Antigone Images In Antigone, one of the most powerful scenes is the death of Ismene and Antigone’s brother. The scene also develops the plot, along with the character’s varying personality traits. In the scene, Antigone travels to give her brother a proper burial. In the original scene, Ismene was not involved because she feared punishment.

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.
Perhaps George got tired of Lennie and took his life out of anger as his job and dream of sharing a farm with Lennie became impossible, or maybe George had had enough and killed Lennie because “(…) he [Lennie] gets in trouble alla time because he’s so God damn dumb.” (OMM, 42). On the contrary, after Lennie had killed Curley’s wife George knew what Curley’s lynch mob would come for Lennie and make his death painful by “(…) shoot[ing] the guts outa that big bastard” (OMM, 96-97). George simply helped Lennie the only way he knew how, by taking his life quickly after telling him what he wanted to
An indefinite number of men became numb to the deaths of their comrades, and yet secretly desired to die and bring a conclusion to their misery.

In “The Things They Carried,” we discover that Cross’s men “carried all the emotional baggage of men who might die (443).” Given that the majority of humans have experienced some form of trauma, we can understand how some men were driven to suicide and others into
He claims that Prince Jones’ life is a vessel, carrying every component that made his life meaningful. Unfortunately, his life was immediately taken away by a fatal murder that raised Jones’ essence back to heaven. Giving this account to his son meant that Coates wanted him to understand that his own race is unjustly targeted as violent beings. The fact that one of his valued friends was murdered because one white individual claimed that he felt endangered in his presence was repulsive towards Coates. This memory scorned his perception of reality of society in that he repeatedly reasoned himself that they have a negative perception towards black

O’Brien feels the blame over the death of “a short, slender young man of about twenty” (pg 129) With the pain of killing this young man keeps O’Brien “writing war stories” (pg 129).
