Antigone was very heroic and brave at first, Creon now punishes her, and she does not fight back, but she simply badmouths her father. “O Oedipus, father and brother your marriage strikes from the grave to murder mine (7.40-41) says a coward Antigone. Creon, on the other hand who is supposed to be the strong king of the land, does not manage to control his anger, and fights his own son in an argument. This can be considered a sense of pride, since Creon did not want to change his opinion. Part of being a tragic hero is having a destruction.
She asks him whether he’d shoot a lady. He never actually says he would or wouldn’t, he just says “I would hate to have to” (190). The grandmother considers being a lady moral and the Misfit’s answer proves that he doesn’t have the same morals as she does. She fiercely calls him a “good” man, hoping he wouldn’t deny it. Her use of “good” is bias since she states he is not common.
/ It is not for your health, thus to commit / your weak condition to the raw cold morning.” (II, i; 234-236) Brutus is a loving character through this quote because normally in that time, women weren’t as well recognized as now but Brutus really cares ad loves his wife. Another one of Brutus’s characteristics/actions that make him as the hero of the play is that when he initially he wants to join the conspiracy, he has a different reason to kill Caesar. He doesn’t do it for greed and envy but it’s rather explained in the following quote: “Not that I loved Caesar less, but that I loved Rome more” (III.ii:21-22). Even though Brutus makes wrong decisions, he didn’t want to kill people as much as a person like Cassius wants to. Also, Brutus is
Just you read it. I wouldn't take my children in any direction with a criminal like that aloose in it. I couldn't answer to my conscience if I did." The misfit is introduced and portrayed as an evil person because he was explained as “aloose from the Federal Pen…” The grandmother is portraying to the people around her that she is “good” because she wouldn’t put her children in any possible way of harm. When the “good” grandmother and the evil misfit meet up, he has no problem with killing her while she pleads for her life.
English 2030 March 27, 2013 Reading Review Flannery O’Connor’s “A Good Man Is Hard To Find.” In Flannery O’Connor’s “A Good Man Is Hard To Find” the grandmother equates that a man is a “good man” if his values are the same as her own. The barbeque owner Red Sammy is “good” because he trusts people blindly by letting them charge gas and is also nostalgic about more innocent times because both of are moral characteristics the grandmother can relate to. The Misfit is “good” because he won’t shoot a lady because that would be in line with her own moral code. Her notion proves to be false and the only thing “good” about the Misfit is his consistency in living out his moral code of “no pleasure but meanness.” The Grandmother is confident
It is quite clear that through her actions that the grandmother is very selfish thus trying to satisfy her selfishness by manipulating others. Once the grandmother meets The Misfit and tries to use the ploy of “you’re a good man” some may feel that she is the same self-absorbed manipulator that she was in the beginning of the story. It becomes evident in that she does not beg for anyone else’s life, because the first words out of her mouth to The Misfit are “You wouldn’t shoot a lady, would you?” (O’Conner, 1955).
Her prejudice side shows through on their trip when she shares stories about a little nigger boy. During the trip, she complains about the many differences in the past and present behaviors of good people (O'Connor). John Desmond tells the readers that the Grandmother’s lying and selfishness are directly the cause of the accident and death of her family (Desmond). The Grandmother’s sins should not be a death sentence but are they forgivable in the eyes of Jesus? The Grandmother tried to convince the Misfit he was a good man in order to save herself (O'Connor).
The audience is caused to fear Othello's transformation into the ''green-eyed'' monster, then pity him when he claims his title in blood. The most significant flaw that Othello possesses is jealousy, however, he was not moved to it immediately. “She has deceived her father and may thee.” Iago says to him in Act 1, Scene 3. This was an attempt to convince Othello that Desdemona has or could commit adultery since she has already proved to be capable of going against her father's will with their marriage. However, Othello informs Iago that he is not a jealous man.
All three are happy in the rela tionship they have with one-another. However, one day, he was told, "Now look here, we don't want any more trouble from you, but if ever we see you near those girls again, you'll find yourself up before a magistrate" (57). Ernest is deprived his life, w hat makes him happy. He is deprived the only friendship he has because the unwritten social code suggests that a man such as himself befriending young girls as such means that he is a paedophile. The detectives interfere with his life.
Very little ambiguity is found within this verse, as Vindice’s motive is clear: revenge. He jokes ‘Hum, who e’er knew murder unpaid?’ and finds no difficulty in justifying his dark plans to seek revenge, so much so that the scene almost becomes comical. Already, the audience sense Vindice is undercutting his wife’s death: his attitude is flippant and we suspect that this will not serve him well, foreboding what is to come later in the play. When comparing the two plays, it also becomes clear that serious matters are dealt with in
