This action leads to him being considered a tragic hero. Creon’s human flaw of arrogance causes him to ignore reasoning and advice and listen only to his own thoughts. He states, "My voice is the one voice giving orders in this city". He is afraid to go back on his word because it will hurt his pride and he is afraid that it will cause him to lose power with his subjects. This action causes him to lose everyone that he loves.
The Negative Affects To Impulsive Behaviors In Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing, Leonato’s quick judgments result in a great deal of unnecessary confusion and turmoil. Leonato’s impulsive disposition gets him into many predicaments over the course of the play. Unfortunately, individuals who rush to conclusions often make flawed decisions and do not think about the awful consequences that follow their premature actions. Leonato’s erroneous habit of making false accusations gets him into trouble when he believes that Don Pedro wants to woo Hero, he dismisses Dogberry, and he assumes Hero’s guilt and feels as though she should die for her costly sin. Out of excitement, the beginnings of Leonato’s hasty actions are first exhibited in Act I, Scene II, when Leonato suspects that Don Pedro will be wooing Hero for himself, when in actuality, he will be wooing her in the name of Claudio Once Antonio informs him of this news, Leonato immediately jumps to conclusions and calls his men to seize Hero and inform her of the miraculous news he has to share with her.
It's awful"(p.16). The quote shows that he knows his guilty of lying, but he doesn't repent. Holden says, "that's the nice thing about carrousels, they always play the same song"(p.210). The quote shows that Holden doesn't like changes and doesn't want to be a change; he wants to remain the same, but he doesn't make sense because he also wants to be change himself to be "the catcher in the rye" to protect the children who are going to the cliff(p.173). Most of him in the novel, he is a liar who always says the things that don't make sense.
This dishonesty about him leads to people not being able to trust him to the fullest extent, which leads to more cons than pros throughout the rest of his life. The last dishonesty I will be discussing, Jay Gatsby committed on that fateful night
I think this is because his family, especially his siblings Dewey Dell and Jewel, truly do not understand Darl’s positive intentions. Instead, they are just weirded out by his actions because they are too simple-minded and self centered to understand someone else’s motives who do not match their own, making him that much more subjective to be labeled as crazy. Not only do his intellectually inferior siblings misunderstand Darl, but also his own mother never liked
Caesar tells Artemidorus, “What touches us ourself shall be last served” (JC. 3.1.7). Caesar is so arrogant that he doesn’t even have the decency to accept help when it is handed to him. Caesar doesn’t realize that his hubris is going to kill him. His hubris is his tragic flaw, and the conspirators don’t like.
Iago noticeably dominates this passage; his comments slip from general conversation to sharp, cynical comments with regards to women. The comments could be seen as blasé, not on closer inspection highlight an underlying emotion and drive. Iago is possibly one of Shakespeare’s most heinous villains due to his apparent lack of any motivation for his actions within the play. Perhaps it is because Iago never clearly voices his motivation that makes the character so shocking, he is willing to take revenge on anyone and he lacks any real moral judgement. Othello, Desdemona, Cassio, Roderigo and even Emilia all fall victims to his ill will, sometimes down to the slightest provocation and the character obviously enjoys bringing pain and damage to those who fall foul of him.
187-8.) This pretense of madness Shakespeare borrowed from the earlier versions of the story. The fact that he has made it appear like real madness to many critics today only goes to show the wideness of his knowledge and the greatness of his dramatic skill. In the play the only persons who regard Hamlet as really mad are the king and his henchmen, and even these are troubled with many doubts. Polonius is the first to declare him mad, and he thinks it is because Ophelia has repelled his love.
He generalized them into a stereotype based on their double-sided nature of appearance vs. reality. Christianity brought about the downfall of men, as they feared the consequences of their sins in the after-life. Hamlet is stuck in a quandary between his encoded belief that he is straight, and his sincere feelings of scorn for females and affection of males. Hamlet is reluctant to kill his uncle, because he is a man and as much as he wants to kill him, he is only emotionally at liberty to attack Gertrude, a female. Societies expectation created “madness” and prevented the pursuit happiness as there was no freedom of individuality.
Oedipus, like many men, has his flaws. His tragic flaw is what makes him a tragic hero and what leads to his downfall. From his rashness to overbearing pride, Oedipus is not perfect. And it is these flaws that bring his expected descend from glory, not destiny nor fate. It wasn’t fate that caused him to kill Laius, or took him down the path to Thebes, or even to leave his home land with no prior plan to go anywhere, it was his rashness and pride that caused him to act out on anger and little thinking.
