But a father. He is worried yes but also he may feel as though Achilles would be a man of understanding as he is in the same position when he lost his Son, Neoptolemus. Achilles feels that if Hector can kill Patroclus' then Hector does not deserve to live. When Somax reminisces about the death of his second son he remembers that he "was beside [him] self. [He] felt like punching her where she stood" He then continues without question to berate Achilles based on the way he dealt with Patroclus' death.
Although he does feel bad that he just abandoned him so close to the end of his father’s life, it didn’t stop him from doing it. “I went to look for him. But at the same moment this thought came into my mind: ‘Don’t let me find him! If only I could get rid of this dead weight, so that I could use all my strength to struggle for my own survival, and only worry about myself.’ Immediately I felt ashamed of myself, ashamed forever” (101). Here we saw Elie’s feelings towards his father really come through.
Hamlet faced himself with a painful loss and feels the betrayal towards his mother due to the reason that she married the murderer of her husband. Hamlets emotions start to change drastically due to the indecision of how to proceed his situation. Should he go towards revenge and fallow his duty as son or fallow his duties and expectations as Prince. Hamlet finds a way in which he could fallow his duty as son by killing Claudius in a manner in which he would not find fault in. Hamlet gathers evidence against Claudius and then has the right to comply with his revenge towards Claudius but also stays as Prince to fallow his responsibility.
If he keeps fighting he would die and be famous and almost and be known as a great warrior.

She felt very bad that Odysseus was struggling with his journey home to Ithaca, and that the gods felt bad for a person who killed a guy and got killed by that guy’s son. Athena was wondering why they were feeling bad for a guy who deserved his death, whereas Odysseus was just a good ol’ war soldier who helped win the fight against troy. Athena felt obliged to help him. She started with inspiring Telemachus to get rid of the suitors and to set sail to other cities to try and get word on his father, Odysseus, whereabouts, and if he is even alive. Then, Telemachus felt obliged to do as Athena asked of him.
His punishment of killing the bird is that he has to keep telling his story over and over again. Both characters knew that they were going to be punished and have to pay the ultimate price for what they had done. Victors unthinking act of creating the creature led to the murder of two of his closest loved ones. "I beheld those I loved spend vain sorrow upon the graves of William and Justine, the first hapless victims to my unhallowed arts" (Shelley 100). Mary Shelly uses The Rime of the Ancient Mariner because both Victor and the Mariner did single unthinking acts that got them both severely punished.

This vengeance is for his dear friend Patroklos, who Hektor killed.
He wishes to be left alone now to mourn his tragic losses which leave the audience to feel pity for him. The audience can relate to the same pain as Jason, because they too can suffer the same fate. Hence, more catharsis arises when Jason’s request to “bury [the] bodies and lament” (62) for his children gets denied, causing him to suffer even worse knowing he will never see nor touch his children again. As a consequence, Medea says “You have gambled and lost!” (63), making it clear Jason’s suffering has only begun. Jason learns arrogance brings men nowhere, and as for fate, Jason must now live his life alone, with no one by his
