Thinking that he is dead, she starts having a relationship with a local minister named Dimmesdale. Together they have a kid, much to the despair of the town who looks down upon Hester for “cheating” upon her husband. Although the town breaks Hester down to the core for her sins, she keeps her integrity by refusing to revel who the father is, which would surely doom him to the same fate as her.
She did not find that a marriage service generated love; she did not enable her husband to recapture his youth through hers; nor could she compensate for that by running his home in the manner of an experienced housekeeper.” This quote illustrates that Elias Strorm was very cruel to her that she died after her second child was born. She was a beautiful, young woman who Elias turned into a very dull person. She always wanted him to be happy and be a good person, but that did not happen, he was just unfair and unpleasant to everyone. To conclude Elias Strorm’s wife is a good supporter of her husband as well as Emily Strorm. The role of women does demonstrate bystanders and supporters of their husbands and family member.
Like George, Candy only wanted his dog dead to prevent it from enduring the suffering that they both face from oppressors. “You seen what they did to my dog tonight? They says he wasn’t no good to himself nor nobody else. What they can me here I wisht somebody shoot me. But they won’t do nothing like that.
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.
I think Henry VIII does deserve his image as ‘Horrible Henry’ as he did many bad things throughout his life. Examples of these are, for a first, an obvious one; he killed two of his wives, for very vague and simple reasons. One and main reason that Henry deserves to be remembered badly, is because he treated his wives unreasonably. Anne gave him a daughter (not a son which was what he wanted desperately, for an heir to take on the throne after Henry) and she apparently
All this because of one decision she made to berry her brother caused her life to fall apart and everyone she loved to disappear. This was in some ways similar to the consequences that Creon had to face with the decision. He was left alone with no one because he killed his family; he killed his own son because its what he thought was right for the town. He didn’t know that his decision was going to force him to live alone. All of this was because they were too stubborn and selfish to change their mind or listen to other peoples view.
in "A Good Man is Hard to Find" the grandmother is out for herself she is far more sinister than she tries to lead other people to believe. Watching her children and grandchildren being murdered one by one, she is only sitting back thinking about how she's going to spare her life not having a care about what is happening. She only wants to see how she can convince the misfit not to take her life as well. The misfit is pure evil he seems to have no remorse for his actions, and cannot understand why he has been given the life he is living. He has proclaimed his innocence all along, or either denied any wrongdoing.
Even when Ismene tries to share the punishment in burying their brother, Antigone sticks to honesty and doesn't want to please someone who didn't believe in what she believed was right. Someone who did not stick to their beliefs was Creon in this story. Creon decides from the beginning that he will have Antigone executed for her crime. When confronted if Creon would take his own son's bride away from him, he immediately says, “Why not? There are other fields for him to plough” (651).
“She found the insolent suitors in front of the door on the hides of the oxen they themselves had slaughtered…” (Homer, 6) This shows hostility because they are referred to as insolent. They took over Odysseus’ house in his absence and the suitors pretended that they were Penelope’s husbands. This also shows a lack of respect towards Telemachus because he should be the man of the house, but cannot be because of the suitors. “And we came to the land of the Cyclopes, a fierce, lawless people who never lift a hand to plant or plough but just leave everything to the immortal gods.” (Homer, 113) The species of Cyclopes were just plain nasty people. They are referred to as a fierce, lawless people.
