For example in the story “Interlopers” the two men have a fate that concludes the story, whether or not they deserve it is a negotiable subject. As a reader, one could decide that they did deserve their fate of which they both die the same way, wolves. In “The Interlopers” the two men, Ulrich and Georg deserve their fate at the end of the story because; they were originally there hunting each other, they bickered quite a bit after the tree had fallen and showed their hate, once one had realized that there was about a fifty/fifty chance for life they decided to make an effort to be friends again. To start, the two men in the story of “The Interlopers” deserved their fate because they were originally out hunting for one another.

To truly understand his fate Oedipus had to let go of arrogance and his identity as a king. If Oedipus was really the killer, he would lose all the respect and honor and turn into a petty criminal which was worst that death for him. His unknown fate (murder of Laius) was the reason that caused him to blind himself rather than to see the suffering he brought upon everyone, but in the end his ability to realize the truth and punish himself made him a tragic hero. Asking to be sent away, asking for punishment made him an honorable hero “send me from this land” (line
It is his own fault that his life spiralled down a nasty path. The oracle might have predicted his downfall, but he was never born with the misfortune he claimed that is bestowed upon him by the gods. The choices that he made are the ones that make his path in life and no one else but him will push him to go through with it. Leaving Corinth was a decision he made on his own to escape. Killing off the men that cut him off the road is his conclusion to put out his anger.
However, if they choose not to participate, Ivan, Zaroff’s servant, tortures them. Rather than face the torture, most attempt the hunt in the hope they could survive. After Zaroff kills someone on the hunt, he keeps their head in his library as a trophy. Killing people gives Zaroff pleasure, and Ivan’s torture doesn’t bother him, either. In his mind, the wea... ... middle of paper ... ...ue that this is not something a civilized person would do under normal circumstances, Rainsford did not have a choice.
George used Lennie for protection; he also looked out for Lennie’s feelings. But he killed Lennie in his darkest hour, so he would not be tortured after Lennie killed Curly’s wife. What does it mean? No one really knows the hole meaning. Life is hard, plain and simple.
He was told he’d killed his father, but hismemory is that his father died of the flu (150). “I call myself The Misfit," he says, "because I can't make what all I done wrong fit what all I gone through in punishment" (151). His intelligence isn’t enough to let him understand the major features of his life. His family and his time in prison make no sense to him, and have no reason or meaning. He is a murderer, and seems amoral in his ability to kill without remorse, or even without memory of killing.
The death of your best friend allowed him to be freed from the cruel world in which he lived and to live in the make believe world that he and you had dreamed of. Killing Lennie also saved you from another situation like the one in Weed; however, the death of Lennie was also the death of your dream. You lost more then a friend when you lost Lennie, you lost your dream of living a better life. However, perhaps Slim, in his wisdom, will guide you to live out your dream. Don’t let Lennie’s death stop you from fulfilling your dream from owning a farm.
Brutus had a tied heart and went with what his mind was telling him half the time. Switching back and forth from becoming a killer to spearing a life, Brutus was his own downfall. He was not a monster, but was simply lost in his own mind. Torn between becoming one of the conspirators or making his own decision, Brutus struggled with his thoughts. He was his own worst enemy because he, just like all of the other conspirators, had no reason as to why Caesar should have been killed by them.
Antony was not Caesar's best friend, like Brutus; he just wanted everybody to be against Brutus so they could follow him. Letting Antony live was very poor judgment. Brutus committed suicide because Antony defeated his army. If Antony were killed, Brutus would have never committed suicide himself. The march to Phillipi was also a bad idea because if they hadn't gone everybody wouldn't have been killed.
He showed this when he allowed himself to be paid off by the upperclassmen and took the prisoners and thieves to be killed in battle. Falstaff knew that they would just be killed and that it was not worth it to have men with a future be killed. He, rather, led the men with no life into battle, to be killed. Falstaff also had a different view of loyalty than any of the other nobles. The nobles felt that one should be loyal to all.
