Abominable action are executed by Scar, he murdered his own brother and king to seize his position as king; he also tried to murder his nephew Simba, the heir to the throne but failed and told him to run away. As a result, he became the king ruling the kingdom in with a lack of consciousness and ruthlessly s. Scar believed he was entitled to perform as he pleased; his behaviour was no longer the surviving behaviour to seize the position of king. There was a food and water shortage but he responded he would rather prefer death to come along to all of them in order to stay as king, in power of the whole kingdom. His main focus in life was being king and is above every other animal in the hierarchy and he behaved as he was not even concerned about his death but only his legitimate
Act 2 from Macbeth is a very captivating and significant section of the book. It encompasses of King Duncan’s murder by Macbeth, so he could become King. Prior to the killing, Macbeth had an excentric hallucination of a blood-stained dagger that epitomised, to Macbeth, to go and murder Duncan. The next day, Macbeth blamed Duncan’s attendants for the killing. In fear of being killed Duncan’s sons, Malcom (who was heir to the throne) and Donalbain, flee the country.
Ross, here says that ambition is the reason Malcolm murdered Duncan, and that has as a result Macbeth will become king. Ross was correct in that, ambition was the cause of the murder, and that Macbeth would become king, he just didn’t know Macbeth was the usurper at this time. Then, at the end of the play, Macduff kills Macbeth. This happens because Macbeth wanted to remain in power, and so he killed Macduff’s family, resulting in his own death. “O, I could play the woman with mine eyes, and braggart with my tongue!
Macbeth needs to follow through with this plan because Fleance and Banquo could get in the way of Macbeth becoming King. The three witches had also foretold Banquo’s descendants to become king. Macbeth sends men to follow through with this plan. They succeed to kill Banquo, but Fleance escapes. After being responsible for the deaths of two people, Duncan and Banquo, Macbeth is in a state where he feels the need to keep murdering people that could possibly get in his way of becoming king.
People who kill other people for really no reason are villains. Alexander killed many people just because they did something little to his civilization. According to TCI “Philip wanted to attack Persia next, but, in 336 B.C.E., he was murdered. His son, Alexander, was the new Macedonian king.” (TCI the last section). A website states that Alexander murdered his dad (Cite in Bibliography).
In the Elizabethan life, this act by Hamlet who is supposed to become the new king as he is next in line since his father had been murdered, would pass over and no one would believe that he did it without any physical proof of him doing it. It could just be sign of jealousy from king Claudius and would backfire on him if he were to try and presume legal action for the death of Polonius. The motivation of King Claudius is to try and get Hamlet sent away so he can cover up the fact that he had murdered his own brother so he could marry his wife. The motivation of Hamlet is to get revenge on King Claudius for his father, but if he was sent away then thee would be no one to get revenge on him for his sins. I think Shakespeare portrayed King
An example of this is when young prisoner Tommy is shot dead as a precaution. The Warden was scared he would let Andy know the truth that he was wrongly convicted and he is innocent after all. Those in roles of high power commonly use their title or authority to everyone else’s disadvantage. By destroying Andy’s property (the only things he owned and had control over) the staff were easily allowed to demonstrate their power and flaunt their supremacy. I believe Darabont included scenes like this to emphasize the idea that people in powerful roles in society often dictate and domineer others until they are downtrodden.
In Oedipus The King, by Sophocles, Oedipus is given a prophecy from Apollo that he must slay his father and marry his mother. Frighten by this he decides to run away hoping that the prophecy doesn’t follow him. During his journey, he runs into a man and ends up killing him and also defeats the sphinx, making him the new king of Thebes. Shortly after being the king, it has come to his attention that the former king of Thebes has been murdered. He quickly demands to know who the killer is.
Macbeth has just murdered Duncan at this point in the tragedy. After he commits his murderous acts, he pretends to know nothing of it, part of his plan to take over the crown. When he see the body for what his fellow peers think is the first time Macbeth says, “All is but toys. Renown and grace are dead.” Though Macbeth is referring to King Duncan the phrase can also be related back to Macbeth himself. This is where the theme of manhood begins to expand and deepen.
He chose to kill Duncan when speaking to his wife “I am settled, and bend up Each corporal agent to this terrible feat. Away, and mock the time with fairest show. False face must hide what the false heart doth know.” (1.7.79-82) He has decided not only to kill his king, but to pretend that he is innocent, and take his throne, It is his decision, not Lady Macbeth’s. Even Macbeth himself accepts responsibility for the act, “I’ll go no more: I am afraid to think what I have done; Look on't again I dare not.” (2.2.51-53) Despite the fact that he is convinced he is taking the right course of action, directly following the act he regrets it. He does not blame Lady Macbeth for he knows he is to blame, and she is forced metaphorically clean up his mess by making a mess of the
King David 's crime was that he killed Uriah the Hittie with the sword of the Ammonites and took his wife to be his. I believe that he told King David a story about lambs instead of simply accusing him because he wanted to see if he would have some sentimental feelings. Further, because of this, King David saw that the rich man did the wrong thing and he believed that the rich man should be punished for his crime, If Nathan accused him right away King David would have never listen to him and would punished nathan for accusing a King of
