Antigone is telling Creon that rather than listen to his man made laws that she would rather follow the higher authority of the God’s. This strong willed nature is what ends up leading to Antigone being sentenced to death. When Antigone chooses to hang herself rather than allow Creon to kill her, she further demonstrates her strong willed nature. Antigone’s unnecessary death clearly shows that she is a tragic character. Creon’s tragic flaw is that he is to prideful.
Moreover, men see themselves superior than woman because of patriarchy system. In the film, McMurphy did not listen to Miss Ratchet as a leader and is against all of her decisions as well. McMurphy refuse to listen to her because she is a female. She may be a leader in the mental institution but not to his
When Curley's wife screamed, he didn't know how to make her stop except to do what he did, but he did not intend to kill her. Curley, of course, is also looking for a way to achieve revenge for Lennie's crushing his hand so he will definitely try to kill Lennie in the most cruel way possible. He says he will "gut shoot" him. George must save his friend by a mercy killing.
It looks like they should kill their enemy, but at the beginning of two stories they didn’t because both barber and the narrator have justice in their heart. “Gregory” is a story about loyalty, friendship and irony. When the narrator’s execution is ordered the guerrilla's must choose between their friend and their loyalty to their country. However, the narrator has to obey the order to kill him. In “Just lather, that’s all”, the barber has a lot of chance to kill Captain Torres but he didn’t.
"He ashamed, and wants to tell her so, but it's not for him to apologize. He hasn't earned the right" (Page 176) - I found this quote to be significant because I felt that it showed Dragan's character and how the guilt had built up within him. It showed us how Dragan felt remorse for what happened to Emina but he also felt that he wasn't worthy enough to own up to it. He felt that since he never helped her, well she was shot. So he feels he's unworthy of showing her, his remorse because he never tried to help her in the first place.
The people inside the home very well could be just innocent people, living their day to day lives. Intruding in on people’s lives is so irresponsible, unfair, and does not comply with humane conduct while fighting battle. The prisoners’ wives most definitely thought they were going to be tortured or ever worse killed, which is just not fair. Walzer critiques the idea of the naked soldier by explaining that once the opposition is dressed for battle, why is it only then that they are now dangerous? In the sense of Walzer then, the Marines would not have been acting unjust, and that all the insurgents should be killed.
Because their relationship is an affair, they cannot see each other in the way they want to very often and especially not while other people are around. They are not married to each other which make their relationship very wrong in that community and time- more so wrong than it would be now. John Procter understands that their secret must be kept, but finished, but Abigail doesn’t care that they were caught once and could be caught again. She just wants their relationship back and says, “Oh, I marvel, how such a strong man may let such a sickly wife be-” (miller 22) Abigail then comes to claim that Elizabeth, john’s wife, is “Blackening me (her) name in the village!” She is telling lies about me (her)!” (Miller 22) but he just gets angry at himself because it’s true, and threatens to whip her for talking about his wife that
Don Elias didn’t go out and make an honest living. He was only respected by the people around him because they feared him. Dona Matilida was not seen as an equal partner in the relationship. She was more of a servant to Don Elias. I believe that when they first got married there was some kind of love in their relationship, but when they realized they could not conceive a child Don Elias blamed his wife.
Though John had already confessed his affair in front of the entire court, when Elizabeth is questioned she denies it, claiming that “[her] husband is a goodly man” (3.949-50). Her lying is understandable though because naturally when people are placed in situations where their words literally determine the life or death of a loved one, they will lie to protect them. However, it is not seen that way, and causes controversy since Proctor previously claimed that his wife never lied; this is a turning point in Elizabeth’s character because it proves Elizabeth still loves her husband enough to even defy her commitment to always tell the truth. Later, after the court deems John as a threat, both Elizabeth and John are sentenced to prison allowing Elizabeth ample time to properly assess her marital problems. She eventually comes to the conclusion that the affair was partially her fault and confesses to John that “[she] counted [herself] so plain, so poorly made; no honest love could come to [her]”
The Montague’s family was enemy with the Capulet’s family, they would fight every time they sees each other. If they didn't really disliked each other Romeo wouldn't have killed Tybalt and Romeo would have killed himself. If the Montague’s family wasn’t enemy with Capulet’s then no one would have died and Romeo and Juliet would be happily married. When Tybalt got killed Benvilo saw Romeo kill Tybalt. They weren’t unkind and mean to Capulet’s family, if they just held back there anger nothing would of happen.
