Throughout the book he tries to overcome the government, but in his heart, he knows he has no hope of thriving because “…was already dead” for committing ThoughtCrime and involving himself in acts worthy of death (Orwell 36). All of his character traits combined lead him to his ultimate death. His attraction to beauty makes him keep hold of objects and things considered suspicious, his rebelliousness causes him break nearly all of society’s rules, and his curiosity steers him toward people and places that eventually causes the Winston torture he endures in Ministry of Love. Winston could have had some false hope of a better world where he could get away from all of the harsh rules and regulations of the Party, but in reality, his personality traits dragged him through a life already pre-written and stamped with an early

Madea gave up her family and life for him and Jason does not appreciate anything she did for him in order to escape and marry him.

Is it acts like these make him seem absolutely mad, because he behaves so erratically.

Romeo and Juliet’s love is doomed not only by the world around them but also by its intensity, because it leads them to death, to be completely blind and oblivious to their lives, and it caused them to move too quickly. First of all, the love between Romeo and Juliet is doomed because it was strong enough to drive them to their tragic ends. The love that was shared between the two enemies was so odd and wrong that it made them do completely irrational things. They not only tried to kill themselves over each other, but they both succeeded in their ends. Juliet was so distracted by the needs of herself and Romeo that she tried to kill herself three times: first when Romeo is banished, then again to avoid marrying Paris, and finally when she stabbed herself.

What a Difference One Word Can Make in King Lear King Lear's response to Cordellia's failure to express her love for her father in words is symbolic of King Lear's madness in the play. His madness is most clearly manifest in his need for his daughters to testify to him of their love. Cordellia's failure to say that she loves him winds up destroying him. What is fascinating though is that it is not the rejection of him that hurts so much as his dismay that his daughter would say such a thing. The last line of the selection (Conflated Version 1.1.94) highlights Lear's anger at not only the words that Cordellia speaks, but Cordellia herself.

This lack of care is what leads to Gatsby’s mental and emotional destruction, despite his actual murder by George Wilson. On the other hand, Witkoski argues that it is “this willful blindness [that] helps lead to his destruction” (Witkoski). It is not Gatsby’s blindness and idealism for Daisy that causes his destruction, but rather Daisy taking advantage of this dream he has of her. Whether Daisy does not fully understand Gatsby’s infatuation with her or neglects to take it seriously, it causes tremendous damage.
Tom is also careless because he was with Myrtle and told lies to her that he was going to marry her if Daisy was not a Catholic and believed in divorce, which meant that he could not marry Myrtle which was all a lie. Another reason Tom is careless because he did not care what other people thought about his relationship with Myrtle and everybody know about his relationship with myrtle. Nick said that Tom was a careless person who “retreats back to his money… and lets other people clean up mess had made (pg.179). Toms wealth and lifestyle blind him from the real world and what other people face like George
