Peter Pham Mr. Daniel English AS 4 5 March 2009 Thou art not tragic if thou art not responsible According to the world, Richard Nixon is considered an ambitious phony. To be frank, that is quite true, for Nixon did after all cheated his way into re-election. A few days after his dark secret was exploited, he shamefully resigned and went down in history as the closest thing to a Tyrant the U.S had ever known. Nixon wasn’t much different than Macbeth; both fit under the same category – a tragic hero who caused their own downfall, not by fate, but by choosing wrong. These once honorable leaders were soon corrupted by the fatal flaw of ambition, and thus, fell quickly into a downward spiral due to errors on their own part.

1 Line 15-17) Creon was only made king after the deaths of Eteocles and Polyneices. “As long as I am king, no traitor is going to be honored with the loyal man.” (Sc. 1 Line 44-45) When Creon became king he took on the responsibilities of both protecting and setting an example to his people.

The king was enraged and chased his daughter with a sword, intending to kill her and the unborn child, Aphrodite took pity on Myrrha and turned her into a tree. Theias shot an arrow at the tree and broke the trunk, and out came Adonis. Baby Adonis was such an adorable baby. Aphrodite fell in love with him and since there was no one to look after him, Aphrodite took care of Adonis as if he was one of her own. Aphrodite sent the child to be looked after by Persephone, the Queen of the Underworld.
The representation of this film follows very close to the stereotypes of what the character is supposed to be with the exception of Blane and Andy who weren’t following the necessary rules of being a “preppie” or “geek” because they both fell in love with each other. For Napoleon Dynamite the target audience I think will be for people aged 13 to 18 because the humour is very dry and older people may not like it. I think the representation of this film exaggerates stereotypes for example when Napoleon tell his brother Kip that he “has the worst reflexes of all time” because Kip wants to be a cage fighter and when they fight they give each other little pushes and
Caesar's own personality was a key role to his own death making him as guilty as everyone else. If Caesar was a caring ruler he might have survived his assassination but unfortunately he was the stereotypical leader and only cared for the good of himself. Even though the empire was stopped before Caesar could rule it, the republic did not last much longer anyway. Caesar's death was not much of an effect on Rome but nonetheless it was Caesars fault. Caesar was arrogant, hubris and full of pride.
Victor’s plans for his creation were more than great, but once he had actually created the Monster, all of his past feelings turned into disgust and horror. Frankenstein finds himself "…capable of bestowing animation upon lifeless matter" (Shelley 51) and attempts to put himself on the same level as God by giving life back to the dead. Although Victor thought otherwise, the creature that he thought would bring him fame and do good for society became a murdering monster. "…I thought that if I could bestow animation upon lifeless matter, I might in process of time (although I now found it impossible) renew life where death had apparently devoted the body to corruption."
