How will you live?” (Act IV, Scn. III, Ln. 30-31) Lady Macbeth puts disloyalty above honesty by lying to her son in order to cover up the fact that Macduff has apparently fled from Scotland. Although he is actually in England plotting against Macbeth, this does not keep her from lying to her son in order to keep him from feeling betrayed by his father’s retreat. This particular event also further proves the theme of honor vs. disloyalty.

To add on, Antigone feels she has no free will as “the curse arising from a mother’s marriage bed” (361) seals her fate. She purposely defies Creon’s word, but her punishment was a harsh, unmerited death as the God’s need to each Creon a lesson. Antigone is not fully responsible for her fate. She just happens to be under the ruling of a bad King that stops her from what she thinks is most important in life; burying her brother. As shown, the themes of the play develop just as the characters reveal their true intentions.

The tragic flaw that causes the hero’s fall is also a custom to the story of the tragic hero, this is known traditionally as a harmantia.

It may even be possible that Eddie has managed to convince himself that his objections to his niece’s marriage is purely innocent and is just out of worry, however “it becomes clear to everyone but Eddie that his own motives have more to do with lust than with law and order” (Charles McNulty). If Eddie was able to acknowledge unreasonable desires it is possible that he could have
By the end of act 1, we know that Polonius wants Ophelia to protect her “honor” (or what was considered honor way back when) by rejecting Hamlet’s advances. In trying to occupy the role of the hero, Hamlet freaks and scares Ophelia by acting super awkward. Ophelia tells her dad, who thinks she must have done something to make Hamlet act really creepy. Ophelia says she “did repel his letters and denied his access [to her]” (2.1.110-111). Honor can meet lots of things, but in act two of Hamlet it’s mainly about Ophelia’s
