Daisy’s interactions of adultery are undoubtedly immoral, yet they also leave a lasting impact upon the people she has hurt. “They were careless people, Tom and Daisy---they smashed up things and creatures and then returned back into their money or their vast carelessness” (Fitzgerald 179). Nick Carraway, in his inactive and inattentive viewpoint, truly captured the overarching immoral

He is a disgusting character who highlights some of the poor qualities seen in people during the Medieval Period. While Chaucer’s novel is structured around a unique group of characters on a pilgrimage, all of which resemble different types of people, some stand out as very unfavorable individuals. The Miller is one of these people. Due to the nature of his tale and behavior on the pilgrimage, one can reasonably claim that he is the most revolting of all the characters. In general, the Miller embodies the negative stereotypes of the working class during the Medieval Period.
People have many perceptions of what is right and wrong, perceived differently amongst time period and an individual 's own uprising. In the ancient greek play Oedipus Rex, Oedipus was convicted of a terrible sin. As bad as this sin was, he repented, putting his hubris to the side, and he did not know that he was acting out on his sins before acting out in his repentance, for the young king worked so hard, sometimes acting instinctively, to remove himself from his sinful fate. The main argument in defence of Oedipus’ innocence is his sheer lack of knowledge. People say ignorance is a curse while some say this is bliss.
It is said, “Some people create their own storms, then get upset when it rains”. This statement implies that some people create their own problems and then are confused when it all comes back to cause them distress. It proves accurate in the notion that when others are selfish, their very own actions can, in some instances, cause increasingly worse situations than what they were complaining of. This belief is one of the most predominant themes in the three texts that are being referred to in this essay. In “The Necklace,” “The Scarlet Ibis,” and “The Golden Kite, the Silver Wind,” the consequence of the characters’ selfishness lead to their eventual demise.
/ ‘Glamis hath murdered sleep’" (2.2.42-42). This has caused Macbeth to become paranoid that the whole house is now aware that he is a murderer. If his actions are exposed, then everything he had done would be for naught and he would suffer great consequences. Even though he knows that the voices could not be real, it arouses much fear for what he has done. This "disorder and moral darkness into which Macbeth [has] plung[ed] himself" (Knights 41) into is still a little unsettling to him.
Oedipus' most prominent and significant flaws include his ignorance and his hubris. Throughout the tragedy, Oedipus’s ignorance of his birth and his entire fate drives the story forward and lead to great suffering not only for himself but for everyone around him. Oedipus’ ignorance of his parentage leads him to commit incest and his ignorance of his fate leads him to walk straight to it. While Oedipus’ ignorance is certainly a flaw as it does lead to great pain for everyone involved, Oedipus himself cannot be blamed for it and it does not represent his hamartia, or “fatal flaw”. This is because Oedipus’ ignorance exists solely as a tool for Sophocles to create the cathartic effect.
