Celie's stepfather mistreated her in such a way that an accurate depiction was made. When Celie's mother became ill and unable to satisfy her husband, he told Celie to fulfill her mother's job. When Celie cried because of the pain, her stepfather said, "you better shut up and git used to it"(3). To assure himself that no one would find out about his secret he told Celie "you better not never tell nobody but God it'd kill your mammy"(1) and told Mr._____ "she tell lies"(9). As a result, when Celie's mother passed away, she felt that she killed her mother, when in fact her mother was terminally ill. After two pregnancies, Celie was unable to produce anymore children because her father injured her reproductive system.
That is, she was convicted of adultery, a horrible sin of the time. As for punishment, a sentence to wear a scarlet "A" upon her chest, it would hardly be considered a burden or extreme sentence in present day. Another sin that Hester committed was the fact that she never told who the father of her child, Pear, forcing her to be without a father. Hester's silence also caused Dimmesdale to live in torture every day. Chillingsworth was also hurt by Hester's act of adultery and because of her, his life was destroyed and the only thing he could do was seek revenge against the man who had been with her.
The most surprising thing is that her members of her family participated in her death. The death of this poor woman shows that women in the society are not allowed to fight for their civil rights, and they do not have equal opportunity as men. Tessie’s death is an evidence of ill treatment that women go through in our societies. In this case, her murder does not just look like a normal murder but the murder of a woman fighting for her civil rights. Her husband, who in a real sense is expected to support fully his wife shouted at her when she raised her voice saying that the lottery was unfair, and this shows; he says, “Shut up, Tessie” (Jackson, 5).
Third, our two brothers, on a single day...Each killed the other, hand against brother's hand." (Antigone, Lines 59-65) In this quote, Antigone justified her reasons for going against the law describing how her parents went through so much, how their father was banished and due to this their mother had committed suicide because her reputation went down to the drain, even after all that their two brothers went into battle against one another and died in the process. Ismene was sympathetic, but still she was noble and afraid of Creon so she did not offer her help to Antigone. Creon required the support of the Chorus of Theban elders, and for his verdict considering what to do with Polyneices' body. When Creon came to know of Antigone’s plan he called for her and when she did not deny of the fact that she buried her dishonorable brother’s body he grew angry and assumed Ismene her younger sister had helped her.
The misfit doesn’t believe in god he believes that god through everything off balance by claming to raise the dead but no one can prove it so therefore he has no faith, this totally contradicts the grandmothers beliefs. What I drew from the statement “somebody there to shoot her every minute of her life” is that as soon as death was near, the old lady changed from a bitter old racist to an understanding and compassionate southern lady. This is a direct knock on southern life and how many older people in the south hide behind the façade of religion and manners to disguise their racist and bitter ways. If someone had threatened her every minute of her life, then she could have been nice all the time, not just when it mattered.

After this I believe hamlets madness to grow, he his blinded by bitterness and anger towards his uncle so much that he loses sight compassion for life and love. Hamlet truly loved Ophelia, In my eyes, and I do believe that if his mind was not clouded with anger, he would’ve done nothing to ever harm her. Hamlet without even realizing, because of his insanity used Ophelia as a release for his anger, and eventually drove her mad. He basically tortured Ophelia without even knowing, not only by the progression of anger and rejection towards her, but also by killing her own father. The killing of Polonius, I believe to be Hamlet’s peak of insanity, the fact that he killed a man without even knowing who it was nor caring, I have to say is insanity at its best.
It can inferred that The Misfit,being a convict, has either maimed or killed the people that the grandmother mentions. The Misfit relays his life to the grandmother before he shoots her, talking about how he killed his father, even though he can’t remember it. He’s not ashamed of any of his crimes because he believes that the punishment is all the same, even saying that you can “kill a man or take a tire off his care, because sooner or later you’re going to forget what it was...and just be punished for it,” (719). Later, while The Misfit is talking to the grandmother, he tells her about his doubt in Jesus. Without proof of Jesus’s feats, he tells her that there’s nothing to do in the end except enjoy it “by killing somebody or burning down his house or doing some other meanness to him.

Even before Medea thought of killing her children, she exclaims, “You horrible children, of a mother who hates you / goddamn you with your father / and the whole house go to hell” (Euripides 81-83). In Medea’s perspective the children are guilty by association, but they are not responsible for their father’s actions nor should they be held accountable for them. Medea goes back even further to convey how bloodthirsty she is when she recounts her history with Jason. Medea explains, “After betraying my father and my home / Then I killed Pelias” (Euripides 482-485). This proves that Medea is ambitious and deceitful for Jason before he divorces her.
There are hints of a strange relationship between Misty and their father. When Harley finally gets up the strength to ask his mother about the suspicions he has, she tells him that Misty was the one who killed their father, but it was a missed shot. She had been aiming for their mother instead, trying to get rid of her as if she was the other woman. Harley internally realizes though that Misty was simply revenging her anger for never taking care of any of the children, for never leaving when she should have, for not loving them enough. The ultimate climax, however, is at the end.
