If we look at the dishonorable and deadly women in the story we have to examine: Kalypso, Kirce, Skylla and Kharybdis, and the Sirens. Here we receive that overwhelmingly western message of woman as femme fatale: that deadly mixture of lust and love, pleasure and danger, pleasure and pain, pleasure and death, pleasure and slavery. Women consume, women demean, and women destroy. Kirke's who beguiles and bewitches. Kalypso’s dominates and hold captive.
Medea is a guilty woman due to her rash actions. She is the murderer of a king, a newly wed woman, and two of her own children. Two witnesses, the Messenger and the Chorus, have actually observed parts of this unfortunate incident. The Messenger sees the dead bodies of King Creon and his daughter and the Chorus hears her children’s last words. They conclude that Medea is guilty and needs to be punished.
The characters of Clytaemnestra, Cassandra, and the goddess Athena can demonstrate this. The most complex and compelling character in the three plays is Clytaemnestra. Clytaemnestra is filled with thoughts of revenge. She seeks vengeance on Agamemnon for the loss of their daughter, Iphigenia whose life was sacrificed in order to appease the goddess Artemis so that Agamemnon's troops would be allowed to continue their journey to Troy. Clytaemnestra displays more intelligence than any other character in The Oresteia in the way she manipulates the events leading up to Agamemnon's death in the play "Agamemnon."
The brothers, soon after they become aware of their wives unfaithfulness, encounter a woman who persuades them to make love to her. She tells them that “when a woman desires something, no one can stop her” (Nights, 1574). This leads to King Shahrayar’s belief in women’s cunning and he vows to marry a virgin every night and kill her the next morning in order to save himself from the wickedness of women. In the first part of The Thousand and One Nights, there are several stories of unfaithful and evil women, mostly rooting from Shahrayar’s thoughts of women as being cunning and deceptive. Then appears Scheherazade.
Initially, Telemachus sulks like a child, longing for Odysseus to return and conquer the Suitors. He doesn’t have the confidence to devise a strategy himself. Then Athena, in the form of Mentes, approaches him. She notes Telemachus’ likeness to his father, which Telemachus contradicts by admitting his unsureness about his parentage. This uncertainty indicates his weak connection to Odysseus.
He is also having issues with his mother who seems to be not only tolerating these deplorable suitors, but leading them on and elongating their stay. During his conversation with Athena disguised as Mentes, Telemachus explains his annoyance with his mother, “And mother…/ she neither rejects a marriage
This aggravates him and he accuses her of having no faith in him. He says “Why do you come hither? Have you no trust in your husband?” (Hawthorne pg. 298) Georgiana retorts saying “"it is not you that have a right to complain. You mistrust your wife; you have concealed the anxiety with which you watch the development of this experiment.
His first relationship was with the Greek Goddess Artemis. Sometimes the thought of his beauty belonging to someone else resulted in cruelty and distrust from her. Simply because he was found attractive and wanted by many there were trust issues within the relationship. In many instances his love interest, Artemis, is jealous beyond reason. Artemis has him locked away only to please her every need.
Analysis: Juliet loves Romeo. She is sad that Romeo has to be a Montague, the rival of her family, the Capulets. Juliet is very daring and caring. Juliet mirrors some girls in today’s society because some girls might disobey their father’s or parents’ wishes to get what they want. A theme in the story is “Overcoming Society, Family and Judgment” because everybody in Verona knows about the feud and Juliet still loves Romeo.
I am the judge and I notice something really strange going on with Lady Macbeth, she is repeating herself and that is what guilty people do when they are hiding something. Lady Macbeth should be the one executed because she was behind every murder and everything bad that happened. When they invited Duncan to come over Lady Macbeth planned the murder before anyone else could. Lady Macbeth did not advise Macbeth to kill Duncan but she pushed him to kill him. Lady Macbeth always seemed quality because Lady Macbeth would get into a trance and relive the accident trying to wash the blood from her garments and hands proving the guilty conscience.
