In addition to Oedipus avoiding his fate he is a coward in terms of his actions. He tells Creon to exile him far away because he is too afraid to deal with all that has happed. When he says “Drive me out of this country as quickly as may be to a place where no human voice can ever greet me.” (Ln.
“Friar Lawrence, less ambitious and more desperate than his fellow manipulators, does not hope that Juliet’s death will dissolve the families’ hatreds but only that it will give Romeo and chance to come and carry her off” (Snyder). At this point Romeo and Juliet’s relationship could not solve the problems between the families and the Friar was only uniting them. This is what made the Friar so repulsive. Even now after deaths and family issues, He treated the situation like a game. “Hold, daughter, I do spy a kind of hope, / Which craves as desperate an execution / As that is desperate which we would prevent (4.1.69-71).
It was a terrible mistake, but in her heart she never loved anyone except me (137).” As he argues with Tom you can see his defiance to believe that Daisy could love another. He led himself on a path where everything he is and can be is Daisy. He became obsessed with her that the love he had for her lead him to believe that she isn't capable of loving anyone, but him. After his dream was killed after his argument with Tom over Daisy, Nick tries to tell him to go someplace else for a while, but “he wouldn’t consider it. He couldn’t possibly leave Daisy until he knew what she was going to do.
He was able to understand that denying Elinor, his wife, of physical intimacy was an inapt thing to do ‘And now it seems that there is no God, and I was wrong.’ He also grasped that he should not have relied on God through the days of the Plague, ‘…I thought I spoke for God. Fool. My whole life… has been based
Take Beryl for example, Carl never has enough confidence and motivation to stand up to her for the way she treats Harley. It is only towards the end of the book where he finally stands up for himself and also Harley. Justine played a big role in this, because as Carl started opening up to her, he became more and more confident and self-assured. Beryl never took responsibility for the kids. “If you just stayed with him, Kept an eye on him, loved him, he wouldn’t get into trouble.’ It’s because of Beryl Harley gets into strife.
Claudio was too scared to confront Hero and confess his feelings and so Don Pedro promised that he would speak to Leonato about setting them up. But this still scared Claudio and he can’t tell Hero he loves her so Don Pedro said he’ll organise something where he can pretend to be Claudio and fix them up and admit his feelings towards her as Claudio. Personally, I think it might be a bit strange to have the Prince chat up the girl that Claudio loves but as long as his love is returned, everything shall be
Unkle Billy escaped his direct fate by dooming the others and it is never let known to the reader if he becomes happy later on in his life, though it is doubted by his cynical and untrustworthy nature; he would probably never let himself be happy by always fearing the world around him. Oakhurst and the Duchess both had more life to look forward to and so far they had been living life on their terms, even if it wasn’t the optimal way to live. The Innocent and Piney had each other and had run away to fulfil their lives of happiness together. Mother Shipton was the only one in the confining cabin that didn’t have something specific to look forward to after the mountains, yet she had been living her life the way she choose before the exile. Society had thrown out Oakhurst, Duchess and Mother Shipton for them being themselves; by living their successes they were condemned.
He was never a man to take the blame but rather say that his actions were just reactions of unfortunate events that others caused. Even though he too, along with Daisy, was not loyal to his partner, he never once admitted he was wrong. He would proceed to lollygag with Myrtle and come home to accuse Daisy of her unloyal actions towards him. A man with that much fortitude cannot be happy with whom he is or he would not be accusing anyone of anything.”…and as we drove away Tom was feeling the hot whips of panic. His wife and his mistress, until an hour ago secure and inviolate were slipping precipitately from his control.”(p.119) Tom knows that Daisy only married him for his money and although she has developed feelings for him, he fears that if he leaves her for Myrtle she will turn to Gatsby.
His dad ignored when he didn’t go home or when he was sent to the Children’s Center; he said it was good riddance. Although Sonny’ mom was very upset, she never failed to make the trip to pick Sonny up from the Children’s Center. She loved him and never had a thought of giving up on him. She tried to hide his clothing to keep him at home, or she threatened to send him away until he is twenty-one, but when these didn’t work, she would ask her favorite question, “Boy, why you so bad?”(P.21) Sonny’s life as a young boy was engaged in crime. He was effectively influenced by his “gang” and the game of hookey.
