The gods are aware about this rift and tension amongst each other as well. “We gods get the worst of it from each other…” Ares says this in his lament with Zeus, expressing his anger of how the gods conflicting wills are causing them to oppose each other and go to drastic measures just to see the other lose. This is shown when he follows by insulting and complaining about Athena as if it was her who had wounded him and not Diomedes. “Why did you have to give birth to that madwoman, your marauding daughter who is always breaking the rules?” This stresses that Ares’ anger is directed towards Athena, thus showing the strained relationship the gods are experiencing as a result of the
“ Stop denying your heart, and what a terrible decision in the first place to go against me even if you 're one hundred times more powerful than me for a stupid fight you lost!” Nintendrone then threw Sonio back down to Earth with no power at all. The saga didn’t even end there for him, the Gods that lended him some of their power to Sonio were so mad he gave nothing back to them, that Zeus, Theseus, and Aphrodite executed him. Nintendrone then apologized to his angels for ignoring them before Sonio had a fight for him. After this fight, Nintendrone then became the most powerful God in the universe. Whose life shall have no end from today til the end of
The demigod son of Zeus himself, Herakles would have to endure and complete eight labors to atone for killing his wife and children. Much did Heracles suffer during this time, killing his own wife and children after being driven mad by Zeus’s wife Hera out of spite. Herakles story is relatable to the struggles of man, more so the other Gods in the sense that Pathos is personified throughout his story. Even at the bitter end, Herakles is betrayed through trickery that ends with his demise. It was unlike any of the ancient civilizations to portray a God as having human or mortal essence.
Agave’s aberrations send her in her insanity to assassinate her own child, and so she turns out to be the target of the same deity she worships in her insanity to revere Dionysus. In the finish, everyone fails because the sense of balance was not sustained but dappled into extremism on both
There is one conflict that I would like to focus on and that is Aeneas’ internal conflict. I think Aeneas has a lot of internal conflict throughout the story. At the beginning of the story Aeneas cries out, not only because he was being thrown around in the see, but because he was broken at the fact that he couldn’t save his king, his family, his people, or his homeland. Virgil writes, “At once Aeneas, limbs limp in the chill of fear, groans and lifting both his palms toward the stars cries out: “Three, four times blest, my comrades lucky to die beneath the soaring walls of Troy—before their parents’ eyes! If only I’d gone down under your right hand—Diomedes, strongest Greek afield—and poured out my life on the battle grounds of Troy!
She was grieving and could not bear the pain that her husband left with another woman. She was knowledgable in many ways and knew what each action would cause in effect. While many think her acts were monstrous, I know that before she decided to kill Creon, the bride and her children she knew that it will bring her at peace and destroy her husband. Medea knew that a life in exile was no life at all and she did not want that for her children and that the royal family wouldn’t accept them
Without thinking of the consequences and preparing. He quickly heads back to marry his wife. At this point in the monster has committed to enacting revenge on Victor in someway. Only deepening his losses, and driving him closer and closer to madness. After Victor marries his wife he retires with her to a cabin, where he awaits the monster; who he believes will be there to kill him.
In Macbeth, Lady Macbeth has power over her husband and manipulates his thoughts to kill others in order to gain more power; however, the plan failed as Lady Macbeth and Macbeth lost their sanity and brought their reign to an end by bringing misery and misfortune to everyone around them. Also, in Othello, Desdemona went against her father by sneaking out to marry Othello and completely went against the female norms by joining Othello to the battlefield. As a result, the antagonist manipulated Othello into killing Desdemona due to her determination and independence. Shakespeare has always portrayed females as strong, prideful and independent individuals who aren’t afraid of speaking up to defend their thoughts, however, due to the long-established gender roles, these individual will ultimately bring bad omen to their own family and lead them to their own
In this particular section, the two most frequent figures are, of course, Odysseus, and Polyphemus; a cyclops. Unfortunately, the meeting of this creature is not very pretty. After scouting the land for everything they needed, all shipmates were ready to leave, when Odysseus objected, "I wished to see the cave man,". By saying this, he lead many shipmen to their demise, making Odysseus arrogant and careless, disregarding the lives of others for his own personal gain. Amidst the chaos that insued, Polyphemus is fooled by our hero through a tedious scheme.
Was I, then, a monster, a blot upon the earth, from which all men fled and whom all men disowned?” (Shelley 280). Being maintains the record of being one of a kind and it has no one else like it on the face of the planet. Even William Frankenstein, Victor’s five year old brother insults Being, resulting in his own death. "Let me go," he cried; "monster! Ugly wretch!
Keeps being saved” (Beah 52). Ishmael had to distance himself from thoughts that his family was not alive because that was too unbearable to think about. One day, a woman told Ishmael that she had seen his family in the town next to them. Ishmael had built up hope of finally seeing his family only to arrive in the town to see rebels burning down every house. The situation was too horrible for Ishmael, he “screamed at the top of [his] lungs and began to cry as loudly as [he] could, punching and kicking with all [his] might into the weak walls that continued to burn.
