Creon, scene 2. Instead of punishing Antigone for burying her traitorous brother Polyneices and increasing the respect of his nation for their king, he pushes them further from him in fear and silent disgust. His people recognize his tragic flaw: pride. Instead of a reign filled with luxury and happiness and respect from his citizens he condemns hi... ... middle of paper ... ...know it and I say it...I neither have life nor substance..." He then finally receives the redemption he longs for, but the family he `killed' will never return. His egotistical, arrogant, and tyrannical nature caused his great downfall.
Everyone else’s grade depends on what type of impression you give. Leave a bad one and the professor won’t expect too much out of the rest of us. Leave too much of a good one and you’re an enemy of the class. However, waiting to go last is a bigger no, no because there’s always that one showboating student, me, who goes above and beyond to make their answer spectacular, leaving you doubting the quality of your own work. Those bastards, me, sickens their fellow classmates to the point of wanting to vomit.
Just a sliver of doubt, and in this moment, through all this commotion he sees something. A little change, the face of a man who indeed does not agree but conforms to the behaviors of everyone else. In this moment it sparks the thoughts and emotions he has yet to discover so buried in the back of his mind that it's almost nonexistent. In this same moment we see the effects of groupthink. Everyone shouts and hates Goldstine only because he is on Two Minutes Hate and because Big Brother dislikes him.
Needless to say that I was infuriated and responded by saying that this was inexcusable and that I would complain to his supervisor, to which he gave me a little push, suggesting that I should go right ahead. At that point I had had just about enough and so got into a physical fight with him. Thankfully the security personnel who then asked me what the matter separated us. I explained to them in no uncertain terms what had transpired and the management responded by firing him right there and then. I felt elated and yet saddened that there are people who still think like that even today.
He became flustered and began looking for pity in what was left of his flock of ignorant followers upon seeing part of his legal empire crumble and collapse. As he scrambled to pick up the pieces, he lost more and more until he was left with only a shred of his former greatness. Even after he had been declared the winner (though he knew that, in reality, Drummond had been the one who truly emerged victorious from this brawl of words and law), he fought to regain his once loyal group of admirers, as he watched many of them walking out of the courtroom door, their backs turned upon him. He screamed over the din, trying to regain something, anything, he once had. And all this only took from him the one thing he still had left... the steady beating of a human heart.
He felt this way, because he had seen the reality of the war, and he was appalled by the treatment the men received. Even after they had fought fo... ... middle of paper ... ...attitude toward the war was bitter and aggressive. He resented the government and all people who supported the war. What had Ron become? He used to be an All-American boy.
Oedipus ended up in shambles gouging out his eyes by attempting to dominate his fate , and Odysseus arrives home, but at the cost of all of his crew, through his acts of complete and utter dominance of those around him. Though many of the classical heroes showed their leadership through the dominance of other's and their ideas, all of them ended up in bad shape. This is a clear message for everyone reading these works that dominance is not the way to lead.
Stuck for commendable words, that is. They had plenty to say about him that was uncomplimentary. Most people feared him because he was mean and spiteful and exacted awful vengeance on those he knew to be and those he took to be his enemies. He trusted no one apart from men with whom he had done business for many years, and even then he suspicioned that they would do him wrong if they could. Staithes was a robust man in his middle forties.
With this comes his resentment towards everyone around him. Holden Caulfield, with a few exceptions, has never seen someone for who and what they truly are, but instead looks at everyone as a phony. He states, “One of the biggest reasons I left Elkton Hills was because I was surrounded by phonies. That 's all.” (17). Holden especially has a true resentment towards his parents that is caused by Allies death.
Patroklos was enraged and kills many men including Sarpedon. His bravery and arrogance, however, began to get the best of him. Here, Patroklos lets Kleos get in the way of his thinking. He wanted to be a hero, and he became blinded by the thoughts of Kleos and Gera. Although Kleos and Gera is the driving force behind many men in the war, Patroklos let it cloud all of his thoughts and became careless.
