Okonkwo and Macbeth are both heavily influenced by other characters, fuelled by the expectations of their societies, and driven to act based on their tragic flaw. The reason behind all the actions Okonkwo takes can be traced back to one person; his father. Okonkwo grew up hating Unoka’s laziness and he “was ruled by one passion- to hate everything that his father Unoka had loved” (Achebe 13). This led him to rule “his household with a heavy hand” (Achebe 13), and treat his family poorly. He is afraid to show affection, as seen with Ezinma and Ikemefuna.

Johnny Hernandez Mrs. James 2 February 2015 Juveniles as Adults I believe that juveniles should be tried as adults because they are old enough to know what they are doing, the juvenile system fails, and teen’s parents/childhood. The reason I think this is because I read a story about a kid named Greg Ousley who murdered his parents because he felt like he wasn’t loved enough, he felt like all he did was embarrassed his parents. One day after school he was depressed, his dad didn’t seem to care as much nor did his mother. So he said, “He has to kill them”, so later that night he shots his parents with a 12-guage shotgun in the head. Then tries to play it off as if someone came to his house, murdered his parents.
