This view has little evidence, however the destruction of Hatshepsut’s monuments is often used to support this theory. For example, Clayton states that “Once Thutmose had a clear field, he set about expounding the memory of his stepmother… from the monuments”. In saying that, he suggests that Thutmose III did not favour the situation he was in and wished to expel her memory for a political move. To conclude, although there is little evidence to support this theory, there is still a possibility that Thutmose III resented his aunt, Hatshepsut. On the contrary, historians such as Naville and Robins
While obeying the god’s laws should be reason enough alone, it is not Polynices’ fault this happened, but rather Eteocles’ for not following his own word. Back when Eteocles and Polynices took the throne, they both agreed to switch it every certain amount of years. When it came time for Polynices to take the throne Eteocles became greedy and banished him. In reality, this feud began because of Eteocles. Even then, some might say that Antigone could have reasoned with Creon, the only problem being that Creon is hard headed and that she had already tried that.
His wife, Portia, tried to convince him to stay home instead of going to the capital because she saw the warning signs and deemed in not worthy to lose him life or much worse over hurting his pride. He, of course, ignored her because he was worried that he would look weak in front of the people of Rome. He fate was sealed after that final decision. He also chose to ignore the letters he received from a man that told him everything about the conspirators and their plans. This man wrote out all of their names and
This means she wanted to break free of her addiction before she died. Instead of thinking of and treating African Americans as inferior, Mr. Raymond accepted them, causing him to be shunned by society. Even children had a disinclination towards him; their parents taught them that Dolphus's way of life was wrong. In the novel, Scout originally described him as "evil" (Lee 267). The text also states, "I didn't think Atticus would like it if we became friendly with Mr. Raymond, and I knew Aunt Alexandra wouldn't" (Lee 267).
She knew that she would not be able to win Gluace over on her side if she was to present the gifts, but her children would be much more appealing as they are a symbol of a new relationship due to their inability of causing harm. By sacrificing her children she is giving away the only thing they had in common. Medea speaks to her children before sending them off and tells them "your father took away your chance of happiness. We see that Medea knows that this will hurt Jason and reflect how much he hurt her. Moreover, it conjures up the idea that she is getting rid of all ties with Jason as she tells him, "you were never going to shame our bed and lead a pleasant life and laugh at me so he can be left to hurt on his own just like he left Medea.
Where as Creon was senseless about his actions and fixed in his views, he lost his power and regard of the people. Being an iron king, he had to lose his family members in order to change his perspective on his deeds. The contrasting roles between father and son are spoken to be said that women should have equal rights as well as that they can speak their mind and not be discriminated
After we got here my mother decided to stay long under the soma effects, even being conscious of how dangerous it was and that it could kill her. These people is insane, they don’t feel or even worse, they don’t care about losing somebody. After I arrived, it was like if I were the principal attraction for everyone, they made me feel like if I were a freak, even when they were the ones that looked like that. When I decided not assist to one of Bernard’s parties, his fame ended. That’s when I started knowing better Helmholtz, that even though sometimes he made me feel uncomfortable, it was not as with the others.
Because of Dee’s new persona, Wangero, was not accepted by her family, this caused her to become angered and defensive. Mama and Maggie do not like this new Wangero person. Since Dee family is not reacting well to the new her, this could be bad news for her mental health. Oswalt says that the way your parents and family react to the new you can affect the outcome of an identity crisis. Usually, if the parents become angered or react negatively to the final result of the crisis them it will output a worse result than if they would have been more calm and supportive (Oswalt).
Contrary, the leaders of the revolution may argue that the Westernisation goes against the Islamic traditions, which they and especially Khomeini are currently working on re-implementing, as they oppose Shah’s numerous interactions with westernized parties. Marjane aims to show her opposition to the current situation. Outsiders of the revolution may favour this point, while the leaders will try everything in their control to penalize her. More revolts than Marjane’s violation of clothing take place within the work. As seen on page 18, her parents are also involved in the revolts on the streets, “My parents demonstrated every day” (p. 18).
Claiming that he never truly did love her and proving that her father was right about him, “You should not have believ’d me, for virtue cannot/ so inoculate our old stock but we shall relish of it/ i lov’d you not.” (3.1.117-19) Hamlet’s motives for doing this could be to keep Ophelia out of everything and to not bring her anymore pain if anything was to happen to him as he went through with his plans. It could also be that he is still acting out as the anger/sadden son and that he needs to keep up with the act of seeming crazy to the onlookers. This action also connects to multiple other hasty and rash doings by hamlet that in a way is cutting of ties to his “old life” before he was visited by his father’s ghost and that thinking to himself, that if he’s going to succeed after everything he’s already done, he’ll need to cut ties to anybody that he could at one point had attachments to. There are hints in the line that Hamlet says to Ophelia after saying they need to make themselves clean of this relationship and cut all ties they had with each other from the past. At the same time saying that they shall “relish” in the memories which mean bring great joy to themselves thinking about how much
On the other hand, Medea also struggles with balancing natural law and justice. The purpose of justice in the Medea is to restore the natural balance tipped by Jason 's betrayal of his marriage vows to Medea. Creon is also guilty of injustice. It is unjust for him to give his daughter to Jason in marriage, then punish Medea for his own violation of the natural order. Then, out of fear, he justifies his action by suggesting that Medea might harm himself and his daughter.
