Guilt takes over Ralph’s body and he is beginning to think that maybe the boys are taking this dispute slightly too far in line with the quote, “I’m frightened. Of us” (Golding 200). Ralph is foreshadowing that something monstrous is about to happen on the island, and that maybe the boys need to reevaluate the problem and fix this before the dilemma gets out of hand. Unfortunately, that is not the case. At the end of the story, the reader can indicate that Ralph has lost his innocence by the quote, “Ralph wept for the end of innocence, the darkness of man’s heart, and the fall through the air of true, wise friend called Piggy” (Golding 261).

He unknowingly put into play the events that led up to Oedipus killing him and marrying his wife.

Claudius has decided to take King Hamlets spot over to rule over. So, this understandably upset Hamlet a lot. Just like any other sane person, just imagine your father being killed by your uncle then marrying your mother… I don’t really think that would go down well with anyone and alas, something had to be done about it.
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.

This made Andrew Jackson an orphan at the tender age of 15; it also hardened him as an individual.
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).
