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.
He had decided to kill Agamemnon but Athena came to him, sent by Hera, and told him to get his anger under control. With that he left in anger and stayed by his ships drowning in sorrow. Here was the fearsome warrior brought to his knees by the loss of a woman, a prize, a piece of property, taken from him by another. He did not fight in the war for a time due to his anger and humiliation but when his best friend Patroclus was slain by Hector he was driven by revenge and rejoined the fight. Hector was considered the warrior-champion for the Trojans, who had persuaded the Trojan warriors to leave Troy and the safety it provided while Achilles was not taking part in the battle.
When Curley's wife screamed, he didn't know how to make her stop except to do what he did, but he did not intend to kill her. Curley, of course, is also looking for a way to achieve revenge for Lennie's crushing his hand so he will definitely try to kill Lennie in the most cruel way possible. He says he will "gut shoot" him. George must save his friend by a mercy killing.
Hector kneels and pulls Achilles' helmet off, and finds it is actually Patroclus who he has killed, not Achilles. Distressed at having slain someone so young, Hector gives him a killing blow out of mercy. Both armies agree to end fighting for the day, and Odysseus informs Hector of the Patroclus’ identity. Achilles, who had slept through the battle, is told by one of his men of his cousin's death. The Myrmidons had also mistaken Patroclus for Achilles, since he had put on the same armor, and had a near identical fighting style.
Agamemnon is showing no respect to Achilles and that is not a smart move to do against your greatest warrior. Achilles eventually quits fighting because he felt disrespected. Achilles made a dumb mistake by letting Chrysies go, and putting his wife in captivity. If he really loved her, Achilles should have stood up to Agamemnon and not let him control his wife. Achilles was willing to fight for his town, but not for his wife which makes no sense.
She will be the man here” (519). This quote explains Kreon’s irritation on Antigone. The very moment Antigone buries her be loving brother’s body Kreon wants to take action with killing her because she disobeyed his law also Antigone’s sister, Ismene, because Kreon believes she was part of it too. Kreon believes if he does not kill Antigone he will no longer be one of the best rulers that people will look up too. This quote is important because it explains how Kreon begins to commit hubris.
Hamlet: Justice or Revenge In the era portrayed in William Shakespeare’s Hamlet, justice is mostly carried out by oneself and not the court of law, and it is a thing of honor to avenge the death of a loved one. However, Hamlet’s quest for justice over his father’s murder does at some point turn into personal revenge, as he wants to have vengeance on his uncle in ways that become more personal. Hamlet loses track of the main reason for wanting his uncle dead and hatred grows for Claudius, his uncle, such that he wants to make sure that Claudius does not go to heaven when he dies. His uncontrollable emotions show when he kills Polonius and does not care about his actions. Hamlet even seems to have forgotten the main reason why he is avenging his father’s death.
Each family member and supporter of the family must stay on their side of the feud, regardless of if anyone knew how the feud even began. This began when Mercutio is killed by Tybalt, so that Romeo gets upset and kills Tybalt back for revenge and also to show where his loyalty is to. This also happens when Capulet wanted Juliet to marry Paris, but she

Throughout the course of the play we see how he changes from ‘Valour’s minion’ to his death and a ‘Butcher’. He was not given the chance to repent like Faustus was yet he was easily influenced by his wife showing his lack of willpower. We feel more respect for Macbeth as his death was more dignified with him fighting to the last. ‘Why should I play the roman fool and die on mine own sword?’ this contextual reference is showing how he will not commit suicide as it was customary for the roman generals to do so in the face of defeat. His wives death was an omen of his ultimate death as she was always there on his rise to power and without her he is not as powerful as he thinks he is.
