Does Antigone Deserve to Be Punished? Antigone has been acclaimed as a model that challenges authority and insists on just acts. However, according to Aristotle, a tragedy requires a man’s harmartia, which means error. Therefore, as a main character of a great tragedy, Antigone must possess flaws. Antigone’s self-certainty is one of her mistakes that contribute to her tragic fate. She regards burying dead people as absolute just behavior under any circumstance. This rite is important in Ancient Greek culture, but weather or not gods desire appropriate arrangement of Polyneices’ body is under question. It is Zeus that brings death to Polyneices because Polyneices brings war to his country and undermines the peace of Thebes. He “sought to consume utterly with fire the city of his fathers and the shrines of his father’s gods, -sought to taste of kindred blood, and to lead the remnant into slavery”. In Creon’s opinion, Polyneices is so wicked that even gods do not want to see him buried. When asked whether the gods have covered Polyneices’ body, Creon replies angrily that “was it for high reward of trusty service that they sought to hide his nakedness, who came to burn their pillared shrines and sacred treasures, to burn their land, and scatter its laws to the winds”. Creon ‘s opinions are reasonable before Teiresias gives out the correct interpretation of gods’ wills. If Antigone realized the limit of her wisdom, she would hesitate to kill herself and Haemon and Eurydice would not die either. Her self-certainty causes the whole tragedy in a sense. Not only Antigone’s action, but also her incentive to break the law is blamable. She claims that she buries her brother because of priority of divine law over human law. However, this explanation of piety motive is tenuous. She says that “never, had been a mother of children, or if a husband…...

Fault Essay

...Fault is defined in terms of responsibility and culpability or blame for something wrong. Responsibility is defined in terms of ability to take rational decisions and rational is defined in terms of reasonableness. Fault is generally an essential requirement of liability in the law of tort. Liability in negligence requires proof of a breach of duty. A breach of duty arises when the defendant fails to act or not act as “the reasonable man” would have. In Bolton v Stone the defendants acted as a reasonable man would have, by taking action in creating a higher fence around the cricket ground to minimise the risk of people outside the ground being injured by the cricket balls. However, in Paris v Stephney borough council, the court held that in light of potential serious consequences posed by welding to an employee with only one eye, the employer should have taken reasonable action in providing safety goggles. Liability under the occupiers liability act 1957 also required proof of fault. Fault is also relevant to the general defence of a contributory negligence under the law reform act 1945. S.1(1) damages are reduced according to the claimants responsibility for the damage. In Froom v Butcher, the claimant’s damages were reduced by 25% due to his failure to wear a seatbelt. There are however areas of tort in which there is no need to provide fault. For example, nuisance is a strict liability tort. The defendant cannot claim as a defence that he took reasonable care to avoid......

To Fault in Our Stars

...The Fault in Our Stars John Green “That’s the thing about pain” Augustus said “It demands to be felt” (10, Green). Who among us has been plagued with feelings? For most teenagers it seems par for their course, but this is especially true for the two main characters Hazel Grace and Augustus Waters of the novel The Fault in Our Stars by John Green. It is about the reality of two young teenagers facing love, life, and death in a different way than most people. The story of Hazel Grace and Augustus Waters proves and exposes the realistic lives of what people with cancer experience, the love two people can share, and the depressing truth of death. John Green was able to capture the truth behind these three phenomenons through his own personal journey with a young girl named Esther Earl in which he helped her face cancer, love, and death. There is time when the word “cancer” is too heavy of a word for some people to pronounce, knowing people who have lost their lives to it or are suffering through it at this very moment. Imagine a person living with cancer, most people see a hairless and lifeless human being just waiting for their time. The Fault in Our Stars shows the truth behind real cancer patients and how they live their lives. Although people living with cancer may have obstacles or they are unable to do certain things all people have that challenge for something and that’s what John Green wanted to prove. Hazel Grace is 16 years old......

At Fault

...Professor Marc McGrath American Literature 221 31 August 2014 "At Fault" by Kate Chopin is a great American novel and wonderful piece of American Literature, the novel takes place after the civil war and is set in the state of Louisiana. Like most would think, back in those days there were a lot of plantations and farming was big back then. Like in the novel, there is a plantation and there were some four thousands acres it rested on. There are many great characters in the novel by Kate Chopin, Thérèse Lafirme, owner of the Place-du-Bois plantation, David Hosmer, manager of the sawmill on the Place-du-Bois plantation, Fanny Larimore, Lorenzo Worthington, and Jack Dawson, just to name a few. With so many characters in the novel it wasn't easy to chose just one that truly had that uniquely American character. The character I did end up choosing from the novel by Kate Chopin in "At Fault" was the character of Thérèse Lafirme, owner of the Place-du-Bois plantation. If you begin to just read the very first paragraph from the novel, you see that Thérèse Lafirme has suffered a tragic event, the loss of her husband, Jérôme Lafirme, and the passing of him left her in possession and charge of the large plantation. Not the death of her husband but the fact that her and her husband and had such a large plantation was the American dream back then, and this showed that she was American. Even though Thérèse Lafirme was a Creole lady which meant she was in this case a woman that......

The Fault in Our Stars Essay

...The novel The Fault In Our Stars shows the story of a sixteen-year-old cancer patient named Hazel Grace Lancaster, who is forced by her parents to attend a support group where she subsequently meets and falls in love with the seventeen-year-old Augustus Waters, an ex-basketball player and amputee. Important themes in the novel acceptance in society and the fear of oblivion. Acceptance in society is an important theme shown in this novel. It is shown by both of the main characters in the novel as they both have a type of cancer and are viewed differently by society. For example, because Hazel has lung cancer she requires an oxygen tank to breathe properly. Due to this she receives weird looks in public. Another example of this is near the end of the book when Augustus is at the petrol station getting cigarettes and his G-tube is messed up and requires the assistance of Hazel. He says “...but I wanted...to do it by myself. Do one little thing myself”. Through this as a reader we can see that Augustus feels the need to prove that although he has cancer he can still do small things like go to the petrol station to buy something, although it majorly failed and he ended up in hospital. This theme was very important in this book because in the generation that we live in, everyone has the need to fit in and proved themselves to their peers. Fear of oblivion is also an important theme shown in the novel.The main characters in the novel are forced to confront death in a way that...

The Fault in Our Stars

...Name Mrs. Kehres English 9 15 February 2014 IRP Reading Essay There are some people in the world who hate getting close to people because they are scared or like to be alone. Then there are other people, like Hazel in The Fault in Our Stars by John Green, who are scared to become close to people because they don’t want to hurt them. In this book a teenage girl named Hazel has cancer, she goes to a Support Group for kids with cancer and meets a boy named Augustus Waters. Their relationship starts off by just staring at each other, “Look, let me just say it: He was hot. A nonhot boy stares at you relentlessly and it is, at best, awkward, and at worst, a form of assault. But a hot boy... well.”(41) We bet most of the teenagers you know don't have cancer, right? We can thank our lucky stars for that, but for Hazel, Augustus, and Isaac in The Fault in Our Stars, that means a whole lot of isolation. Sure, Hazel hangs out with her friend Kaitlyn, and Isaac starts off the book with a lovey dovey girlfriend, but when the going gets tough, their illnesses separate them from most other people. Add that to their physical limitations, and they find themselves in a world that is oftentimes very, very lonely. “That was the worst part about having cancer, sometimes: The physical evidence of disease separates you from other people.”(58) Not only do people leave when there are some rough patches, but when Hazel goes out in public people stare. When she gets on the airplane to go......

The Fault in Our Stars

...The Fault in Our Stars The novel, The Fault in Our Stars by John Green is about two teenagers that fall in love, but unlike most other young adult romance stories, there’s an irresolvable plots twist in which they both have an incurable cancer. The story is told by one of the main characters Hazel Grace Landcaster, who is a 17 year old cancer patient that is forced to attend a support group because her parents think she is depressed. The support group is where she then meets Augustus Waters who is an amputee which resulted from the cancer. They both know if they were to get in a relationship together, it wouldn’t be something that lasts forever. Even though they know this, they begin to grow closer, while making lots of memories during this journey together which makes them forms a bond that may never be broken. This is why John Green is one of my favorite authors just because it may come off as a sad cancer book, but it’s nothing but two people that fall in love that have obstacles to overcome. Hazel Landcaster fascinated me from the start by the way she looks at herself as a person. All she wants in her life is to be a normal teenager, this is troubling because where ever she goes, she is obligated to bring her oxygen tank because she cannot breathe without in. In this novel she explains to the readers that she is a grenade, because in the matter of time she is going to explode and hurt the people around her. So her thinking of a well lived life is all about walking......

The Fault in Our Stars

...The Fault in Our Stars Is suffering necessary in our daily lives? Why do we have to suffer, why is it a part of our lives? These questions were always in the back of my mind while reading the novel The Fault in Our Stars. It is a tragic love story about two teenagers, who are both cancer recipients and their journey to falling in love. The two protagonists were constantly dealing with the theme of suffering. In the novel, the author John Green uses his protagonists Hazel Grace Lancaster and Augustus Waters to develop the theme of ‘the necessity of suffering’ as he writes these characters to undergo the feelings of pain and suffering. John Green uses the character of Hazel Grace to explore the theme ‘the necessity of suffering’ by writing Augustus Waters’ faith as destined to die. I admire Hazel because she shows tremendous strength and was able to handle it. Throughout the course of the novel, Hazel was constantly worried about dying first and not getting close to Augustus. She did not want to get close to Augustus because she made a connection between herself and a grenade. She believed that when she dies, she’ll be a grenade - injuring innocent others around her. However in actuality, Augustus was the grenade as he passed away first. I think that Green did this because Hazel was constantly worried about being a grenade, she did not comprehend the necessity of suffering. It was necessary for Augustus to suffer because he was able to go to a better place. Also, Green......

Fault in Our Stars

...My ISP novel is called The Fault In Our Stars, by John Green. In fact, the movie was just released last Friday, and this novel is one of the most popular books amongst teens. The story takes place in Indianapolis, which is where sixteen year old protagonist Hazel Grace Lancaster is battling Stage 4 Thyroid cancer. Since she has terminal cancer, Hazel is required to carry an oxygen tank everywhere she goes, which makes it very obvious that she has cancer (physically). This causes a barrier between Hazel and society, thus resulting a character vs society conflict. Hazel states, “I could feel everyone watching us, wondering what was wrong with us… That was worse part about having cancer, sometimes: The physical evidence of disease separates you from other people.” (144) Hazel believes that her time on Earth isn’t as long as most people, and decides to distance herself from others to minimize the number of causalities she leaves behind, and that makes her very anti-social. Even though Hazel doesn’t go to school, she is VERY smart and because she has cancer she spends a lot of time thinking about life; She is very philosophical. Being faced with several situations that have threatened her life, she is very cautious of who becomes close to her because she knows that there is a good chance she will die and she doesn’t want to leave behind emotional damage, and therefore distances herself from people. This internal conflict is important because it affects most of the decisions she...

Fault Analysis of a Bearing

...ISSN: 2348 9510 International Journal Of Core Engineering & Management (IJCEM) Volume 1, Issue 9, December 2014 Fault Analysis of a Bearing Archit Upadhyay Bachelor of Engineering- Mechanical Engineering Acropolis Institute of Technology & Research, Indore, (M.P), India Contact Number: +91-9993099957 E-maid ID: architupadhyay2192@gmail.com Abstract The performance of a bearing which is dynamic in nature is very crucial to the working of a machine. The presence of defects in a bearing results in reduced efficiency or in some cases severe damage to the machine which is under consideration. Rolling element bearing is an indispensable part of any machine which finds widespread domestic and industrial applications. Different methods are used for detection and diagnosis of the bearing defects. This research is intended as a tutorial overview of bearing fault detection using vibration analysis. The advent of the microprocessor has enormously advanced the process of vibration data acquisition and analysis in recent years. Measurement that took hours only two decades ago can now be completed in minutes and better decisions made because of better data acquisition and presentation. However, the basic process of measurement and analysis have remained essentially unchanged, just like the machines from which vibrations is measured. The results of the measurement and data analysis need to be compared with known standards or guidelines and decisions made as to whether the machine is......

Faults Within Windows

...Faults within Windows OS POS355 August 24, 2015 Dr. Boyd Faults within Windows OS The security within an operating system is vital to the overall operation of your operating system, and in this case even more important to Windows OS because of how it is used across various platforms. The security within Windows is provided to protect your operating system from any unwanted visitors whether it be accidental or not (Stallings, 2015), but not all security is perfect. Sometimes security contains flaws and some flaws are bigger than others and some flaws can destroy your system from the inside out. These faults can be patched and some are so minute that they can be resolved with something as little as switching the settings. Switching the settings sounds like something that would never be a fault, but what happens when the fault that was created was man made. The fault that lies within Windows was a nuisance but the real issued lied with how many users decided to handle that nuisance. There are three different types of hackers trying to gain access to your system. These three hackers are called the Masquerader, the Misfeasor and the clandestine user. A Masquerader is someone who is not authorized but gains access and infiltrates your systems access controls to exploit your account ("Windows 7 Known Security Flaws", 2009). A Misfeasor is a person who has been granted access to data and resources but misuses and takes advantage of the information he has received ("Windows 7...

Law, Fault Essay (Aqa)

...Fault Essay (30 marks) Fault can be defined as legal responsibility or blame for an offence or misdeed. It also refers to the mental state of the defendant. The basic principle is that a D should be able to contemplate the harm that his actions may cause and should therefore aim to avoid such actions. In general, a person cannot be criminally liable and subjected to criminal sanctions unless it can be proved that he carried out an illegal act in a blameworthy manner. An act does not make a man guilty of a crime unless his mind is also guilty. The state of mind of the D is hugely important in assessing whether or not he is at fault. However, to be found guilty of most criminal offences (true crimes) both an AR and MR must be proved. The AR also includes elements of fault. These elements relate to the level of responsibility, a positive voluntary act is considered more blameworthy than an omission. The AR of an offence must be voluntary or done with free will for there to be any criminal liability. The D must be in control pf their actions. There are in fact situations where the AR is involuntary and the D is therefore not at fault. Automatism shows the D has no fault if they are not in control of the act they have committed. Quick for example could plead automatism as it was argued that the insulin he had taken made him attack a mental patient, therefore it was not his fault. This lack of fault is reflected in the outcome: a successful plea of automatism results in an......
