In Act 3 scene 5 it could be argued that Juliet is failed by both her parents. Her mother, Lady Capulet, may have failed her in the sense that she does not understand Juliet or have any knowledge as to what is going on in her life. Juliet is crying because Romeo has been banished, yet Lady Capulet believes her to be crying over Tybalt’s death. Juliet cries that “no man like he doth grieve [her] heart”, referencing how upset she is that Romeo is no longer in Verona but Lady Capulet believes this to be “because the traitor murderer lives”. This illustrates how Lady Capulet is ignorant to the fact that her daughter is now married to Romeo, leading to her inability to understand the meaning behind what Juliet is saying.
If this was the case, Juliet may not have felt so driven to take the potion and fake her death. Capulet’s forcing and uncaring parenting caused Juliet’s death. Above all, fate’s unavoidable reach is at most to blame for Juliet’s death. Fate’s first prediction was “one dead in the bottom of a tomb,” meaning when Juliet faking of her death. Fate also predicted “a pair of star-crossed lovers tak[ing] their live[s].” Out of everyone in the play, fate is at most to blame for Juliet’s death because of it’s unavoidable and destined to happen.
Through the whole book I think Grace does a terrible job of covering up the murder and showing people that she didn’t do it. All her memories she has through out this book I think shows that she did but she is just trying to hide it. And she can hide it so well because Grace is just such a likeable character I mean I know she did it but there is something that almost makes
The Madness that is Abigail Williams: Her Intentions in The Crucible “How hard it is when pretense falls! But it falls, it falls!” With these chilling and ominous words, Abigail’s twisted sense of revenge rings hollow in Arthur Miller’s terrifying play, The Crucible. A masterpiece of its time, The Crucible brings forth the true horrors man is capable of: deception and vengefulness. No character presents these values as well as Abigail, whose lust and heartbreak for John Proctor results in a homicidal goose chase. Because of her hate towards Proctor’s wife, Elizabeth, Abigail creates demented tales, directed at abolishing the “problem.” Though Abigail’s wild canards seem quite obtuse in civilization today, at the time her acts fell to justification.
Thus this was what she meant by not even the perfume of Arabia can cover up her guilty sin. Another example would be when Lady Macbeth says “Was your hands, put on your night-gown, looking not so pale: I tell you yet again, Banquo’s buried. (5, 1; 52). Considering the fact that Banquo is dead, and she was the one who influenced her husband to do all those bad deeds, in the end it caused her to relive this scene to show how cruel she was in the past. Thus it is shown that guilt can cause one to lose there inner conscience.
As if you were able to stop them! I like this quotes in particular as I feel it sums up blanches haunted and complex feelings in this scene, as it appears as something she is. Infect just saying to herself, it's quite a way through the monolouge when, she's "really got into it" (her spiralling pity, a little exaggerated and theatrical) this quotes also seems particularly haunting as if she's re, in acting/remembering her exact thoughts at the time, that someone said this too her and shows us Her confusion/vulnerability/ helplessness her feelings of uselessness and incompetence in that situation and her lack of control which contrasts with her manner of manipulation and managing everyone around
I get the feeling that she was sick from before because of the fact that she killed her husband and went into hiding. I also sympathize with her because if my husband or any family member was brain dead I kind-of would’ve wanted to end their suffering too but at least stick around to do the time after, instead of running away like you planned it. Maybe while her husband was “dead” she snapped and just couldn’t take it anymore, standing around waiting for your loved one to die is just horrible, and maybe during that timing she just had a break down physiologically, and emotionally.
Its just I cant help thinking about this girl-destroying her life so horribly.’ This shows Sheila feels commiseration and sensitivity towards Eva and her death which comes across as genuine regret when she realises she could be linked to her suicide. Mr Birling interrupts her questioning by becoming even more aggressive when trying to defend her daughter. The phrase ‘why the devil do you want to go upsetting a child like that’ that he uses shows he is more concerned that his daughter has been affected by feelings of guilt and shame for what they might have done to Eva Smith. He doesn’t realise the depth of the familys involvement and still feels able to be bitter and outspoken towards the inspector. However, this does impact the inspector at all because he continues his questioning with Sheila further.
Hale points out that the messy sewing is a sign of nervousness. Mrs. Peters disagrees and tries to defend Mrs. Wright by saying that when she gets tired her sewing becomes a messy. The quilt showed a disturbance in Mrs. Wright's life. The knotting of the quilt seemed to be the same type of knot used to strangle Mr. Wright. The women noticed that trifle, but the men were too busy looking at the dead body and making inferences about how Mr. Wright was killed that they overlooked the similar knotting of the quilt and of the rope around Mr. Wright's neck.
Isaac Velasquez Mr. Hawkins English CP2 5/14/12 Antigone’s killer or killers The story of Antigone is one of a sister who suicides herself after being punished for breaking a unjust law. There are many questions of whose fault it is that Antigone ended her life? But the fault is not only one person it depends on many. Antigone’s death depended on many factors, but mostly by the actions or inactions committed by Ismene, Creon, and Antigone herself. Ismene’s inaction to react to the situation she is put through by her sister contributed to Antigone’s death.
