He cared more about others than he did himself. For instance, in the process of killing Caesar, he could have easily backed out because he knew he might have been punished, but he knew in the long run, that it would help the plebeians most. Another example of his selflessness is in Act 2, Scene 1. Brutus decides not to tell Portia his plans for the murder of Caesar. He feels she already has enough stress in her life and does not need to worry or deal with his plans.
This is important to the novel because we later learn that Miss. Dubose is in fact ill and there is a reason for her ill mannered behaviour. This shows the theme since Atticus acted in a hero like fashion rather than the way most of society would have acted. A similar case happens when Bob Ewel spits on Atticus and to that Atticus responds with “”. This also shows how Atticus simply can not see the dark in people.
This also reveals another side of Brutus. By the use of the word ‘must’ it shows that Cassius has influenced Brutus into thinking in a vile manner. His is no more portrayed as the peaceful and honourable man that only thinks of the people. Brutus wants the killing of Caesar to look like he is going to kill Caesar for the public. This is shown by the use of the words “I know no personal cause to spurn at him, but for the General.” Brutus says that he is joining the conspiracy only for the people when in fact; Brutus is using this as an excuse to kill Caesar.
The Portray of the Perpetrator Jefferson in A Lesson Before Dying: The Reverse Side of a Perpetrator Does a perpetrator have to be an irredeemably bad person? It’s not always true. Unfortunately due to people’s limited perceptions, many people incorrectly assume that a perpetrator is a bad person with no redeem traits. In definition, a perpetrator is usually someone who carries out a crime or deception (Merriam-Webster). They are around us everywhere, either as the criminals we often see on news or the protagonists in fictional worlds.
Macbeth is not merely portrayed as a butcher because at the beginning of the play he has a motive for killing King Duncan, a butcher would kill someone without reason. A butcher can be seen as someone who is heartless and has no self control, but Macbeth does not fit into these conventions as he is in love with Lady Macbeth and he tries to persuade himself not to kill the King, he is just easily influenced by others. Macbeth has reasons for his actions rather than just killing someone for the sake of it, so therefore i would argue that he is not seen as a butcher. His ‘vaulting ambition’ is what drove Macbeth to kill the King; he wanted more than he already had. Macbeth can’t be fully blamed for all of the murders as he didn’t personally commit the crimes he got other people to do them for him.
He passed a law that restrained anyone from burying his own nephew’s body. Creon tried to prove that by ignoring family relations he gave more importance to law and order in Thebes. He believed his law was more powerful than the laws of the gods. He believed that anyone who disobeyed his law will be punished no matter who you are; this was the biggest mistake which lead him to lose his son and his nephew. Second, Creon abused his power by thinking that he can change or break the laws of the Gods and not allowing other people to break his laws.
The third reason is because he made the wrong, yet right decision. I state this because in the end the good side won. Jekyll killed himself so society wouldn't suffer to mr Hyde anymore. Asa in the end of the novel the mixture was not working any longer. He may have to be Mr.Hyde forever.
However, Friar Lawrence is more responsible than Tybalt for the deaths of our “star cross’d lovers” because he allowed Romeo and Juliet marry and it caused Romeo to avoid the fight at first with Tybalt, than later tried to stop the fight between Tybalt and Mercutio and caused Mercutio to get killed by Tybalt. Friar Lawrence also made a potion for Juliet to fake her death to let her see Romeo, but he failed to get the note to Romeo and Romeo didn’t know Juliet’s death was fake, so he ended up committing suicide and so did Juliet. Friar Lawrence never told anyone about Juliet’s death being fake. “So smile the heavens upon this holy act that after-hours with sorrow chide us not.” This was when Friar Lawrence agreed to marry Romeo and Juliet. It lead to them dying for each other’s love, when this could have been prevented if they weren’t married.
For instance, in the process of killing Caesar, he could have easily backed out because he knew he might have been punished, but he knew in the long run, that it would help the plebeians most. Another example of his selflessness is in Act 2, Scene 1. Brutus frequently demonstrated many acts of affection toward others, such as Cassius. In Act 1, Scene 2, he is reluctant to join Cassius's conspiracy because he did not want to betray Caesar. He had to weigh his choices and in Act 3, Scene 2, Brutus kills Caesar only because he is afraid of what will happen to Rome if Caesar remains ruler.
When the conspirators gather at Brutus’s house at night, Cassius suggests that Mark Anthony should also die with Julius Caesar or he could carry on Caesar’s work. But Brutus disagreed and said “let us be sacrificers, but not butchers, Caius.”(II, i, 166). Brutus believes that Caesar’s death should be a sacrifice with a purpose behind it, not a mindless slaughter. Other characters in the play also realized that Brutus had no bad intentions for killing Caesar. Even though Brutus killed Antony's best friend, Antony still recognized Brutus as "the noblest
