Like Macbeth, Yulia Efimova was tempted by her ambition to do great things. In the play, Macbeth could not resist his temptation which led him to killing multiple people. He was given a prediction by the witches that he would become king. In order for Macbeth to become king he would have to do something foul, Macbeth tried extremely hard to resist the temptation of killing the king. His ambition to be more powerful got the best of him and he killed the king to be more powerful.
Once he finally had enough “evidence” (forged/ manipulated by himself) that the Jedi wished to overthrow him from his place as leader, he decided to order the army of the Galactic Empire to hunt down and kill all members of the Jedi Order. His actions also brainwashed the public into distrusting the Jedi, despite their past reputation as peacekeepers. His command sent the armed forces on a large hunt for many years, which, to me, seems very closely related to what occurred in Lusus Naturae. In both stories, those who were different from the norm (the protagonist from Lusus Naturae and the Jedi) were hunted down and killed because they did not fit in to the mold society wanted them
When making the decision to destroy his half-finished female form, Victor recalls that he had already “created a fiend of unparalleled barbarity” in his first monster, and that this new creation might even be “ten thousand times more malignant than her mate” (138). In the wake of the trauma the monster has caused both to himself and his family (via his post-partum depressive state and the deaths of Justine and William respectively), Frankenstein is now overwhelmingly conscious of the horrible consequences that birth can entail. In contrast to his previous aspirations, he characterizes his creation with words of negative connotation such as “barbarous” and “fiend,” and suggests that a future creation could even be exponentially more evil. Victor’s initial dreams of fatherhood have been grotesquely morphed into terror of future creation, which would be made possible by creating a female monster. He speculates that one of the first results of creating a mate for his monster would be a “race of devils…propagated upon the earth” who would make the “very existence of man…full of terror” (138).
This is further compounded due to the fact that Thor was a real god born of Odin and Loki was born of giants and later found by Odin himself. This meant he would never have as much power as Thor ever did, so instead of staying under his brother’s shadow, Loki would instead become a god of mischief and chaos. As seen in this quote “Loki grew increasingly evil. Angry with the gods because they now disliked him, which then he arranged the death of Odin’s son Balder.” (Loki, Myths, and

This happens to be a big deal back then for these people. So Theseus decides to take matters into his own hands and defeats Creon in a battle. Shortly afterwards, his men find Palamon and Arcite, who were at that time opposing knights, and decides to imprison them with no hope of ever getting out.

In this tale, many people are affected by fortune in many different ways as seen by Palamon’s fate, Arcite’s fate, and Emily’s fate.
This leads into a second theme: greed will eventually strike you back. Cronus is greedy for power, and to ensure that he remains ruler, he devours his children, which results in drastic consequences. This greed for power leads him to committing terrible sins, and he pays for it by facing horrible punishments.Zeus tortures Cronus by trapping him in the Tartarus forever. Cronus’ greed is what nets him the harsh punishments from Zeus. If he didn’t commit these terrible sins, there is a chance that he stays ruler of the Universe.
