Antigone supports the laws of the God’s in heaven and believes that if someone is not given proper burial rites after death, they will not go to heaven. Her religious views were very important to her and the love for her brother would ultimately sway her decisions to go against the law of the king. Creon’s laws and orders became very personal to Antigone, and she took offense and felt as if his law was invading her family and going against the gods. Antigone says, “…I will bury him myself. And even if I die in the act, that death will be a glory.
Antigone believes that without burying her brother he will not have a good after-life. Antigone even goes as far as burying him twice. Antigone is more admirable in that she is not selﬁsh. She cared for her brother so much that she would go through all this trouble to give him a good after-life. She wanted to marry Haimon but sacriﬁced this to bury her brother.
1. George kills Lennie by shooting him in the back of the head to save him from a more painful death at the heads of Curley, who has vowed to make him suffer for the death of his wife. George loves his friend Lennie, whom he has looked after faithfully, and he doesn't want Lennie to die horribly, especially since Lennie has unwittingly taken the life of Curley's wife in much the same way as he petted the puppy too hard or squeezed the mice to death. Lennie didn't know his own strength. 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.
Courtney Rausch Period 6th May 23rd 2012 Mr. Blair Lit/Comp Chapter 13: Carton asks Lucie to never forget him, to always remember hi as the person that has saved her children and her children’s children. He says this because he know that Madame Defarge is going to come after her and kill her and her children. He also tell her that he would sacrifice himself for her, and he was hoping to go talk to her that night and to know that she is the only person that cares was sad for him to know. It was sad because they have a “mother to son” bond not a “wife to husband” bond. She loved him unconditionally like a mother would do to a child.
The main conflict arises when Antigone decides to go against civil law and bury her deceased brother. She justifies her actions when she states that “Creon is not strong enough to stand in my way.” (Pro.35). She remains completely loyal to divine law because she believes that her life will be judged by the gods and her main goal is to please them. Despite civil law, Antigone trusts her
All characters in The Grapes of Wrath bear moment's of deep self disappointment; however, Ma does not create a chance for them to stumble. Instead, she protects her family from people who would try to break their spirit. For example, Rose of Sharon is approached by a religious woman, who panics her into believing that the baby she will have will be ruined for life. Ma Joad understandingly knows how easily ones spirit can
Creon refuses to dispose of Polynices’ properly. Antigone believes strongly in the afterlife that she does what she thinks is right. When Creon finds out that his niece has buried her brother he is infuriated. She thinks that people need to respect the dead, and since she sees no one acknowledging this she considers herself dead because she did what no other person thought of doing. Antigone knows that Creon knows what she has done and states, “I gave myself to death, long ago, so I might serve the dead.” Her brother not being buried changes the relationship she has with her uncle because her uncle now wants her to suffer and to e tormented for something she thought was right.
Hasn’t she gotten the hint yet? The answer is no, due to the fact that she was killed shortly after finding out about the dog. After seeing how violent and uncontrollable Lennie could be and what he was capable of, she should’ve taken the hint. Curley’s Wife decided not to take Lennie’s warning. Lennie tells her, “I like to pet nice things with my
This is where we learn that Emily would rather kill Barron than to let him go. The ones who refuse to change with society will almost always find themselves in isolation. * Miss Emily involuntarily and voluntarily isolates herself * When she was under the strict rule of her father, she was forbidden to go out and thus being isolated from society has been a tradition. * As time went on pieces from Emily started to drift away and she follows the path of her
I believe Lily was in fact very thankful to finally hear what truly happened from her father, but she also makes it very clear that no matter how bad she deserved to know she didn’t really want to hear that she in fact accidently killed her own mother. “You think you want to know something, and then once you do, all you can think about is erasing it from your to mind.” (Kidd 308). Lily is faced with a burden inexplicable to your average young child, which leads to her running away and luckily finding the home that she always needed after the loss of her mom. Growing through such a tragedy and still somehow recovering from it shows how much Lily matures throughout her few years portrayed in Sue Monk Kidd’s infamous
