The gods begged for her to be released but Hephaestus refused. Drunken by Dionysus, he was led back to Mt. Olympus, but even though he was not thinking straight he still refused to free Hera unless he was able to have Aphrodite or Athena as his wife. Hephaestus ended up marrying Aphrodite. Aphrodite was the most beautiful goddess in Mt.
Actually, he says, if she has to marry, Ophelia should marry a fool, as wise men know that women only make men into "monsters", even while knowing this Ophelia kept on loving Hamlet even though Hamlet would not respect her. In act 3 scene 1, Hamlet and Ophelia are having a conversation but Hamlet is just disrespecting her in front of everyone and she doesn’t say anything but stays quiet the whole time. Ophelia’s death was an unfortunate accident. She was at best dimly aware that she was drowning – ironically a solution to her
Creon is not a heroic character despite his excess on many aspects. Antigone is one of the most famous characters Sophocles created for the strength she brought in a time that was unjust. She wanted too burry her dead brother but his uncle, Creon; king of Thebes at that time forbad it. Antigone desired nothing else than justice. She was not capable of accepting the fact that laws did not depend on her.
That why he is a betrayer in my opinion, he lies to people and he always wants to be a two-faced person. One this Brutus did and seemed fake and not caring for others was being best friends with J.C and after wards talking horrible about him and how he thought J.C was too ambitious. Brutus will always talk about anyone behind their backs no matter who they were and I find that very inconsiderate and cruel. Even though Brutus knew that Ceasar was going to die he was planning on to helping to kill him. Meanwhile, When Brutus kills himself he shouts out words of peace to Caesars spirit “Caesar, you can rest now.
Will you cast off pity,” again she gets nowhere and in a last plea before he get his men, she appeals to kindness and like of children. “Show some pity: you are a father too,” this is very clever as she does not actually like her children. 2. She manipulates Creon by pretending she is not a threat “I’m in no position-A woman- to wrong a King.” “I bear no grudge on your happiness:” and “I will bear my wrongs in silence.” She then appeals to his kindness to let her and her children stay. 3.
The only crime is pride.” Creon is killing her because he feels it will improve his image to his people so they will be fearful and obey his laws. In this way he is so full of pride that he can’t even think about the incredible emotional damage he inflicts on his own son Haimon, who is engaged to Antigone. Creon was selfish, and too late, he learned that he was wrong. His pride would not
It was the ultimate act of friendship and sacrifice, on George's part, to kill Lennie. He knew that Lennie would be lynched and hung for murdering Curley's wife. He also knew that Lennie didn't know any better, he had no idea the power of his own strength, he did not fully know the ramifications of what he had done, but he did know that it was bad and that he might get into trouble. George basically spared Lennie from a death filled with pain and suffering and Lennie almost had this moment of clarity when he knows what George has to do and he's ok with it. 3.
Another time in the play when we see how Creon is a practical man is when he makes his judgment on Antigone. “I’m not about to prove myself a liar, not to my people, no, I’m going to kill her!” He doesn’t seem to care that Antigone is his niece, or the mother of the heir of Thebes; he still sentences her to death for her actions. He is proving to the chorus and his people that he can be a fair king. I think that this is an important aspect in the novel because this is one of the things Creon does in order to gain the respect and allegiance of the people of Thebes. Despite Creon showing us that he is capable of making fair decisions, he is still rash and unjust.
Artemis has him locked away only to please her every need. If he even looks at another with lust she will abuse him in terrifying ways. While she seems to be sincerely sweet sometimes, things with Artemis never really run easily when it comes to her. She goes from hot to cold within seconds, and can take her healing hand and rip Acheron’s heart and body to pieces with a single thought. She feels as though she has ownership of him simply because he chose to give his love to her in the beginning of their relationship.
No explanation, though, would seem to justify the cruelty Oberon uses in winning the boy away from Titania. Oberon casts a spell upon her, a trick that leaves her in love with Bottom, the ass. Many critics recognize Oberon's kindness in releasing her from this spell as soon as he has gotten what he wanted from her — the boy — but his treachery must still be
