Instead of repenting for his sins he escapes them. Plus he is worried about his daughter because he believes that they will have a horrible future because of him. (LINES 1318-1923) Also by acting in his weak behavior he is trying to avoid his fate again. He does this physically. Because he was blind to the prophecy, he blinds himself to remember everything he had done.
The readers are saddened because Antigone should not have died and she should be the queen of the kingdom instead of Creon. Even though Antigone dies in the end of the play, she does something important and meaningful before she dies. Her death is not a complete loss because she buried her brother and cleaned her conscience before she went to the underworld. "I should have praise and honor for what I have done." Creon tries to make things right in the end because the oracle tells him what he had done and the gods would be mad at him but is too
He relates these stories to Julia. Winston finds out that he can easily mask his feeling because he finds out that his dad left him and his mother and he distinctly remember his mother showing no emotion when this happens. This leads into a conversation between Julia and Winston (they talk about the inevitability that they will be caught). They talk about confessing and Winston regrets how young Julia is compared to him. Winston suggests they just walk out and never see each other again, to save them from being hopelessly lonely when they are forced to separate.
In Sophocles “Oedipus the king”, Oedipus was sent to mount Cithaeron as a new born baby to die after his father (King Laius) was cursed by the gods and heard of a prophecy that his son is to kill his father and marry his mother (Queen Jocasta). The Shepard in charge of this could not kill the baby so instead Oedipus is adopted. Later Oedipus hears about the prophecy, and leaves, afraid that the prophecy would come true. Along the way he gets in a fight with a man and kills him, unknowingly his father. He then solves a riddle from the Sphinx, which has been terrorizing a kingdom, and in return, the kingdom gives him their queen's hand in marriage, which is his biological mother.
His poor treatment there is more shocking because he has been drawn as a character who had, “worked hard” and ”owed nothing to any man.” Mrs Edwards, the daughter, is confused at first by the nun’s reaction to seeing her. When the nun asks, “Is your father lighter or darker than you?” she begins to realize that he will not be admitted there. The nun sends them away and delivers the platitude, “God bless you dear”. Mrs Edwards replies “and God pity you sister”. Her father dies at home, and she has endured the agony of watching him die.
But instead of trying to gain knowledge it is being destroyed, all because society is trying to promote ignorance which causes sameness in all. Montag battles this sameness and goes against what society offers up because of his belief in what humanity can become and what it will become if nothing is changed. The plots are similar as well. Both are trying to accomplish something that goes against their society but they know
Perhaps, because she saved one life, the rest would have to fall. Her actions led to terrible suffering for Creon and his family; almost like a curse. Haemon, her fiancé, was so in love with her that he actually fought with his father, the King, for her rights. When he could not do anything about Antigone being buried alive, he stabbed himself out of grief for his love with Antigone and anger towards his father. Because of the son’s death, Creon’s wife, too, killed herself out of grief.
This acted as a warning that Desdemona should never have become involved with such a “Moor”. He was warning his daughter of the unnatural. However, Desdemona went against his wishes and married Othello, the true love of her life. Brabantio saw how this marriage was going to eventually end. This unnatural union ended in Desdemona’s murder,
His goal of being with her had come true, but while being out on the town Tom finds out about the affair and things are laid out on the table. An argument starts up between Tom and Gatsby on who Daisy loves with Gatsby saying, “ ‘ Your wife doesn't love you…. She never loved you. She loves me….. She never loved you, do you hear...She only married you because I was poor and she was tired of waiting for me. It was a terrible mistake, but in her heart she never loved anyone except me (137).” As he argues with Tom you can see his defiance to believe that Daisy could love another.
Hamlet and Ophelia should not marry as it is essential for Hamlet to stay away from Ophelia to fake his insanity and also, Hamlet accuses Ophelia as being deceptive and he currently detests love and marriage. To carry out his plan to avenge his father’s death, Hamlet has to make everyone believe that he has gone insane and Ophelia might jeopardize that very plan, as she is too submissive to her father. This is known from the line, “I shall obey, my lord” (I.iii.136). In this quote, Ophelia shows abundance of her obedience to Laertes, her father. Laertes is Claudius’s right hand man and if he got hold of the information that Hamlet is faking insanity, he would unquestionably report it to the king and that will foil Hamlet’s quest for revenge in the future.
