In Sophocles’s play Antigone, the throne of the city of Thebes has fallen into the hands of Creon, Antigone’s uncle, after the sudden and tragic death of Eteocles and Polynices. Under his rule, a new law forbidding anyone from burying Polyneices causes Antigone to decide between staying loyal to her country or to her family. In the play Antigone, the most real tragic hero that prevails is Creon because he embodies all the characteristics that a tragic hero must have while Antigone lacks some important characteristics. To begin, Creon conveys goodness because he chooses to punish Antigone for her crimes to keep Thebes as safe and orderly as possible. After Antigone confesses to her crimes in front of Creon and the Choragus, the confusion with

Victor hates his parents prefers being alone until he meets Eli. Eli is someone who everyone loves even when they first meet him, except Victor. Although he soon grows on him because of their shared interests. The story is beautifully written because it doesn’t reveal the what the underlying problem is right away. It reveals it over time.
Victor is then taken to Belrive in order to find peace, there he pondered about the outcome caused by his actions. However rather than finding the peace his father wanted him to find his mind fills with the desire of revenge against his own creation. Unable to handle the emotional pressure he pursues a lonely trip to the valley of Chamounix. Here the mood then begins fluctuating as he purses internal peace but his guilt keeps tormenting his mind. He first “ceased to fear, or to bend before any being less almighty” (Shelly 107) and “a tingling long-lost sense of pleasure often came across [him] (Shelley 107), however then he found himself “fettered again to grief and indulging in the misery of reflection” showing the nature of his internal conflict.
Gatsby’s actions, and words demonstrate a clear obsession with Daisy that seems to have no end. In the story, Gatsby is at the first portrayed as a great man, until later the book goes on and his true colors and motives are revealed.

In response “‘I wouldn’t ask too much of her’” I (Nick) ventured. ‘You can’t repent the past.’ ‘Can’t repeat the past?’ He (Gatsby) cried incredulously.
He makes it seem like Tom and Myrtle were doing something wrong and disgusting, which they were, but he makes it seem like what they are doing is completely unacceptable. Daisy is also aware of Tom 's choices, yet she chooses not to say anything. Now on the other hand, there is Gatsby and Daisy whose affair is made out to be just two lovers being reunited after a tragic separation. If Tom were aware of their relationship, he would not have the same attitude that Daisy does. He would probably bring it up face to face and say something to Gatsby, then try to hurt him in any way he could.

For example, like Kate Chopin states in “Desiree’s Baby,” “fell in love, as if struck by a pistol shot”(Chopin 1). This simile is used to describe how all the Aubigny’s fall in love right away. Armand didn’t care that Desiree was abandoned as a child and her lack of identity, he was to give her his name. Since Armand doesn’t know Desiree’s past it can be said that this is one of the reasons their relationship never worked. Armand never knew Desiree’s origin, therefore when the conflict arose he instantly blamed it all on Desiree.
Troy loses the dignity, respect and even love that was once given to him by his friends and family. His own selfish needs are fuel for the destruction of the life he once knew.

His mind is in constant turmoil from his immorality, transforming him into a guilt-ridden tortured soul, because of his secret. Hawthorne expresses Dimmesdale 's morbidness when he says, “Yet Mr. Dimmesdale would perhaps have seen this individual’s character more perfectly, if a certain morbidness, to which sick hearts are liable, had not rendered him suspicious of all mankind. Trusting no man as his friend, he could not recognize his enemy when the latter actually appeared” (135). Dimmesdale is living with Chillingworth, his physician, who is described as evil and tormenting towards Dimmesdale, yet, the minister does not know that his enemy is the one he is trusting. Furthermore, Dimmesdale attributes, “all his presentments to no other cause but his own morbid heart” (146).
