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.

Frankenstein Personal Response Why Victor Frankenstein is Responsible for his Death When one initially reads the gothic tale Frankenstein, it may seem obvious that Victor’s monster was directly responsible for the death of Victor’s loved ones. At the hands of his very own grotesque creation, Victor lost his younger brother, his friends and his newlywed wife, Elizabeth. However, upon reflection on the actions of Victor Frankenstein, I concluded that Victor himself is indisputably responsible for the deaths of the people closest to him. I found these three very distinct reasons that support my thoughts: he created the monster, he rejected and abandoned it, and he refused to make a companion for the monster in the midst of his loneliness. As a result of Victor’s pursuit of scientific knowledge and the desire to infuse life, he created a very grotesque creature that murdered his loved ones.

Although there are many similarities between Oedipus and Macbeth, there are also many differences. Macbeth willingly fulfills his prophecies knowing that he will gain power and absolute control over Scotland.
Macbeth killed the real king to become king and slowly lost his good side to his evilness and sought to kill his closest friends kids in order to withhold power and the kingdom. Gilgamesh on the other hand as the story progressed learned the value of friendship and what it means and he was willing to give up everything for his lost friend, just for him to be able to speak with him again. These two literary works can show you how two different worlds thousands of years apart can still be similar in a way or another. How a kingdom is ruled and how a King is followed and valued in a society. Two Great Stories from two
The two guards, whose daggers and persons screamed a story which couldn’t be justified, were slaughtered where they stood. Out of pure fury and passion for our beloved leader and king, Macbeth honored our kingdom by once again showing his devotion and service in the Scottish name.

By letting his hubris cloud his better judgement he lost it all and his own life. He began to care more about being feared by all and keeping a crown that was not even rightfully his, then making the right decisions. Macbeth murdered his king because his wife was calling him names, he also got his best friend killed to try and protect his investments, he murderer a defenseless women and her children to try and make a point, and was a huge
He had decided to kill Agamemnon but Athena came to him, sent by Hera, and told him to get his anger under control. With that he left in anger and stayed by his ships drowning in sorrow. Here was the fearsome warrior brought to his knees by the loss of a woman, a prize, a piece of property, taken from him by another.
