He becomes one of the negative byproducts of the war because it causes him to become “insane” and inconsiderate towards the sentimental values associated with death. In conclusion, both these texts share the common idea that war has the potential to make a person’ death seem to be not too big a deal and erase all the sentimental, emotional and humane feelings affiliated with
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.
Families are full of love and hope but to annihilate that all is a complete act of putrid evil and hate. War gives illusional rights to these inhumane beings that these acts are a part of life which they aren’t. Natural death should be the cause of all these lives, not innocent murder. War is the reason these families blood has been spilt. After all these past events, the 1800’s wars, The Boer War, WWI, WWII and The Cold War, you’d think we’d all have learnt our lesson that war was destroying people, along with the world.
Such as when Einar went against his word to Hrafnkel, Hrafnkel murdered Einar for something as little as riding Hrafnkel’s horse. Hrafnkel justified the situation by saying he had the right to kill Einar for going against his word to Hrafnkel. I believe that, after the murder of Hrafnkel’s horse and after he gives up his religious views as well as his sacrificial activities, that there is a turning point in the supernatural elements. After these events Hrafnkel’s seems to create his own fate and believe in the idea of atheism. Hraknkel changes as a person after the killing of his horse, he becomes nicer and more respectful to people and begins to treat them better after he gives up belief in gods.
The poison didn’t work as Claudius was drunk and therefore he regurgitated everything including the too slow moving poison. As that didn’t work Agrippina recruited Xenophon (Claudius’ personal physician also known as a doctor) who “introduces a feather smeared with a speedier poison into Claudius’ throat, and Claudius dies.” This shows that Agrippina planned to murder her husband as she introduced Xenophon to kill his patient and Locusta a known woman for poisoning and had been sentenced, Agrippina needed her skills to know which poison to give him. All things considered, the following conclusion can be made: Agrippina did kill / murder / poison her husband as Tacitus states “Agrippina had long decided on the murder.” Ferrero also supports Tacitus’ view claiming that it was “work which Agrippina had well under way” However, Boak & Sinnigen suggest Agrippina wanted Nero to be Emperor from an early age, suggesting that she had a motive to plan her husbands death from most probably early on in Nero’s
Our officers oughta be shot for that. She was carryin’ supplies and war material.” A few paragraphs later the book ends, the protagonist knowing that his own “heroism” in battle, the blood-lust that fuelled the victory, was manipulated, based on a lie. It’s a final moment of
Cinna stabs Caesar first, and the rest of us stabs him but Brutus was the last person to stab Caesar. Antony discovers Caesar is dead he wants to have a funeral and talk about Caesar’s honor. I don’t think that this is a good idea because he might make me and the other conspirators look bad. He could turn the people against us. This was what I was afraid of, now I can’t let this happen.
Buggy horses are tortured every day, just to die a disgusting death at the slaughterhouse the horse will be sent to when it cannot fight anymore. Allowing the Amish to continue to abuse these horses should be against the law. Using horses as vehicles is ignorant as well as idiotic. It is not safe, and there are other transportation methods that can be available to the Amish. With the technology today, horses are no longer required for the Amish to get to where they want to go.
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.
Nowhere in the novel is there a happy thought of war, it is constantly being shown as a destructive route to go. This portrayal of war in a negative light is highlighted by including the words slaughterhouse in the tittle. The slaughterhouse is the location where animals are slaughtered, the parallel between this and the tittle is that the book promotes the idea that war is an unnecessary route and only leads to the slaughter of humans. The tittle of the novel also reflects the major motif of Death. Death is embedded in every chapter and is used to show the destructiveness of a war.
