This upset Okonkwo who lashed out causing Nwoye to leave and never come back. In the novel Things Fall Apart by Chinua Achebe, Nwoye was able to stand up to his father as a result of two religions colliding. Although they were father and son, Okonkwo and Nwoye were never very close because of how different they were. “Nwoye knew that it was right to be masculine and to be violent, but somehow he still preferred the stories that his mother used to tell…” (Achebe 53).

In the beginning of the story, the narrator finds out his brother isn’t “normal” so he threatens and brainstorms ways to kill him; “It was bad enough having an invalid brother… so I began to make plans to kill him.” The narrator was so self centered and couldn’t handle not getting the “normal” brother he wanted, he was going to end his life. In the middle of the story, the narrator says, “ I was so embarrassed at having a brother who couldn’t walk so I set out to teach him.” He only wanted to teach him to walk for himself, he didn’t even care how hard it would be for his brother or if he wanted to walk.

Although, Giles Corey was accused he refused to admit nor deny being a part of witchcraft resulting in a harsh punishment. An example from the play “He would not answer aye or nay to his indictment; for if he denied the charge they’d hang him surely, and auction out his property. So he stand mute, and died Christian under the law. And so his sons will have his farm.” (135) this shows Giles denied the choices to keep his land so his sons would not lose their home. Finally, through John Proctor tries to tell the truth about Abigale and the girls, Elizabeth Proctor supporting her husband choice even though they have children to raise, and Giles Corey rather be pressed than lie about being a part of witchcraft it is clear the fundamental subject is courage.
(Death ln 89-90). Because of his choice to not trust in God, Beowulf ends up dying, but he is still not aware of his mistake, (Death ln 160-161). God could not let him continue life with His blessing upon him if Beowulf could not keep his faith in God. This ends up being his fatal mistake that results in his death.

This took so long dude, and i got rolled by my mom last night haha. As much as he was devastated by decision the clan elders made with Ikemefuna, he didn’t want to show anyone that he was weakened by this choice of Ikemefuna to die. The elders to him that he didn’t have to be apart of killing Ikemefuna, but he declined and went with the others to kill him. He did this because he wanted to show everyone that he could lead the clan and that he would make any decisions by emotion. AKA he didn’t want to be called a pussy.
While also in the court room Elizabeth told John about the ending to Giles tough trial, she said, “He were not hanged. He would not answer ay or nay to his indictment; for if he denied the charge they’d hang him surely, and auction out his property. So he stand mute, and died a Christian under the law. And so his sons will have his farm (Miller 84).” Giles Corey is an old, wise, and strong man in Salem.
