One of the strongest human seems to be a desire for power. Write an essay in which you discuss how a character in a novel or a drama struggles to free himself from the power of others or seeks to gain power over others.

If you can't write an essay, that's fine.

Yes sorry, I can't do an essay on this space. Consider King Creon, he fits the criterion for your question. Creon is the ruler of Thebes in the wake of war, Creon cherishes order and loyalty above all else. He cannot bear to be defied any more than he can bear to watch the laws of the state defied. He has Polyneices' body defiled while Eteocles is honored because he feels that he cannot give equal to share to both brothers when one was a traitor and the other was loyal. He does not recognize that other forms of justice exist, and in his pride he condemns Antigone, defies the gods, and brings ruin on himself.
