She killed her parents because they were to worried about her life, and set up the scene where they were killed to lead to believe that Cathy was murdered. Cathy then changed her name and began to lead a new life. She then started to manipulate men for their money. She did this by taking pictures and using them for blackmail if the men did not pay her. Many men fell for this and in my opinion she became very powerful in a sense.
“Electricidad” play is about a young girl, the main title character, who is suffering over the death of her father. She also finds out that her mother, Clemencia, is the one who stand behind her father’s crime. Electricidad knows Clemencia also murdered her brother, Orestes who has been sent to Las Vegas by his father. At some point, I think the major conflict of the play is whether or not Electricidad will get her revenge against her mother no matter what. She loves her father too much that she could not let go of her father’s dead body and at the same time; she could not believe that her father is actually dead.
All this because of one decision she made to berry her brother caused her life to fall apart and everyone she loved to disappear. This was in some ways similar to the consequences that Creon had to face with the decision. He was left alone with no one because he killed his family; he killed his own son because its what he thought was right for the town. He didn’t know that his decision was going to force him to live alone. All of this was because they were too stubborn and selfish to change their mind or listen to other peoples view.

Tybalt (who is Juliet’s cousin), was killed and her parents believe that is the reason for her heartache and committing suicide. As soon as the nurse discovers that Tybalt is dead her reaction to Juliet is quite troubling and she does not exactly know how to tell her so the end result is her saying, “Tybalt is gone, and Romeo banished; Romeo that kill’d him, he is banished.” (3.2.69-70).

For example in “Destroying Avalon” Avalon had to face the death of her best friend Marshall who took his own life because of being bullied for so many years and not letting anyone to support him through his tough times. “Marshall is dead” was repeated in the book to emphasize the feeling of grief Avalon faced. In “The Colour Purple” death and loss is shown when both Celie’s children are taken away from her at birth and is given the impression that they where killed. Bullying occurs the day you are born by society determining colours, interest and behaviours that suit the type of gender you are. However bullying doesn’t really show it’s self until we go to school, this style of bullying can be verbal, physical or electronic.
The greatest act of failed responsibility in the novel, Curley’s neglect towards his wife, was a continuing plot line through the book. It finally comes to an end when the lonely woman is accidentally killed when she comes to Lennie looking for companionship. To emphasize Curley’s irresponsibility, he immediately decides to lead a manhunt for Lennie before knowing all the facts about his wife’s murder. Lennie was completely at fault for the murder, though; as another example of irresponsibility in the book, he chose to run away instead of staying with Curley’s wife’s body to claim responsibility for what he had done. Not every character in the novel is irresponsible however, as show by both Slim and George.
Ladies and gentlemen of this jury, there is no doubt that we have proven this case to you. Friar Lawrence should be punished for involvement of Romeo and Juliet. It is because of his involvement both are dead and their families are grieving. Friar Lawrence did not use his common logic despite him being a full grown adult. What adult would marry children?
I get the feeling that she was sick from before because of the fact that she killed her husband and went into hiding. I also sympathize with her because if my husband or any family member was brain dead I kind-of would’ve wanted to end their suffering too but at least stick around to do the time after, instead of running away like you planned it. Maybe while her husband was “dead” she snapped and just couldn’t take it anymore, standing around waiting for your loved one to die is just horrible, and maybe during that timing she just had a break down physiologically, and emotionally.
This vindictive hatred from Abigail soon prompts a witch hunt involving many innocent people: “Twelve have already hanged for the same crime.” While many panics, John Procter knows this from the start ; “this is a whore’s vengeance”. He tersely identifies the main cause for the witch trials to be directly linked with a spurned lover, who has become disemployed by Procter after having a brief extra-marital affair with her. Still overwhelmed with lustful feelings for John Procter, Abigail decides to manipulate the situation by accusing innocent people of witchcraft, to achieve her own revengeful goal. Abigail is not the only one who takes advantage of the witch trials, to accomplish their revenge. Thomas and Ann Putnam, as a resentful and greedy couple, will take it out on anyone who has caused them trouble.
