The opportunity to beat fate was too good to pass up. It did not help that his wife felt the same way as well. She facilitated the murder and assured her husband that it was what needed to be done. After Macbeth killed the king, he found himself no longer a true and loyal soldier, on the inside that is. He made sure to put on a façade which would lead the King’s men to believe he was still a respectful and loyal man.
Creon prevents the people in Thebes to bury Polynices by saying that anyone who tries to bury him will be sentenced to death. This law may be harsh, but Polynices is a traitor who attacks his homeland. Creon makes no exceptions to the rule even when he realizes Antigone, his niece, tries to bury Polynices. It is easy for Creon to let Antigone get away with her crime, but he does what he thinks is right by starving Antigone. If he lets Antigone get away with burying her brother, it will make him seem weak, and the government corrupt.
Antigone knows that Creon knows what she has done and states, “I gave myself to death, long ago, so I might serve the dead.” Her brother not being buried changes the relationship she has with her uncle because her uncle now wants her to suffer and to e tormented for something she thought was right. Anti gone dies because she kills herself in a cave she can’t escape from. She hung herself and the first person to realize she was dead is Creon’s son Haemon. Haemon was devastated and wanted to kill the person responsible and he felt that there wasn’t a force on the planet that could stop him. Creon is told by Tiresias that if he doesn’t change the way he is bad things are going to happen.
Noone seems to have the real cause of it, they just assume she’s going to kill herself and they wanted her to. They say she lost her ways and that her like a man that wasn’t up to people-with-money standards. In the end she doesn’t use the poison for herself………….. When Miss Emily dies the women are not mournful but curious to go into her house and scope around. The men seem to pay their respects.
In the book both sisters had to deal with their spouse cheating on them but they both just wanted revenge on their husband and boyfriend at first but that wasn’t the right way to go about it. One of my favorite lines in the book is in the chapter where the spiritual counselors tell Vanessa and Thomas that just because god says its okay to divorce and adulterer doesn’t mean you should. I think that in this day and age, we are so quick to throw in the towel and sometimes god really wants us to look at the “for better or for worse” part. I think that if your husband or wife was to make a mistake we shouldn’t be so quick to get a divorce and try to work things out. This book taught me that divorce isn’t the way to solve your problems all though time.
He convinces Hester that her lover will die if she ever tells him that Chillingworth is her husband. If you were in Hester’s place, would you have kept quiet about the doctor’s identity, as she does? Here, Chillingworth also reminds us of how easy it was back then to get someone thrown in the clink based merely on hearsay or on a single accusation. |Quote #5 | |"What evil have I done the man?" asked Roger Chillingworth again.

He could have respected her decision to not want to marry and she wouldn’t have had to trick everyone into believing she was dead, which would have saved Romeo’s live which would have saved hers. “A Thursday let it be a’ Thursday, tell her, She shall be married to this noble earl. Will you be ready? Do you like this haste?” “Out you green-sickness carrion, out you baggage, you tallow-face!” Romeo could be blamed for his own death and also the death of the fair lady Juliet, if he hadn’t been so addicted to loving his families’ mortal enemies’ daughter. If he had stayed in love with Rosaline then he never would have had to be defended by Mercutio in which battle Mercutio lost his life.
You mistrust your wife; you have concealed the anxiety with which you watch the development of this experiment. Think not so unworthily of me, my husband. Tell me all the risk we run, and fear not that I shall shrink; for my share in it is far less than your own. "(Hawthorne pg.298) Aylmer admits that he had been trying cures on her without her knowing but none of them have worked to far. He tells her that he has one more option which is dangerous.
How does Hill convey relationships in the novel King of the Castle? Hill is describing Kingshaw’s relationship with his mother as not a good one. We see this as Kingshaw is thinking back to his past experiences with his mother, “He wished she were dead instead of his father”. Here Hill is trying to portray that Kingshaw’s mother is an extremely unlikable person and a terrible parent. Here, Kingshaw’s mother is trying to treat both the boys with equal respect.“I shall not make a favourite of my own child”, which is conveyed to the reader constantly as throughout the novel as her respect for her own child declines as her feelings for Mr Hooper increases .
