In the words of Karl Marx the revolution is not just an ideology of having an uprising in the society. It is in fact the recurrent idea of bringing changes in the lives of the people. One of the important aspects of this change is the fact that the different people perceive revolution as violent but it is a change of ideologies and thoughts to portray the ideals.
The revolution in the Ibsen’s play Hedda Gabler whose actions are only justified with the protagonist Hedda Gabler’s wants of establishing her husband so that she can enjoy a life of luxury. One of the major aspects of the play is Hedda uses her charm to entice L?vborg who due to her actions takes up drinking and tries to kill himself after losing his prized manuscript. The manuscript that he lost was his life’s works and Jorgen finds it. The situation where Hedda pushes L?vborg to commit suicide shows the vindictive ness of her plans to achieve luxury. She did not understand in all the plotting that people may find out and that led to her ultimate fall when Judge Brack chooses to blackmail her to have an extramarital affair with him. The changes were very well avoidable if Hedda could have a tab on her passion for luxury and not necessary.
Okonkwo in Chinua Achebe’s Things Falling Apart is a man with strong principles which he has laid down for himself and he chooses to live by this compulsion all his life. It is shown that that like the primitive tribes of Africa, he gives a lot of importance to masculinity and chooses to avoid actions even which can be considered feminine. He chooses to stick by his principles and religion after the arrival of white men in the tribe. Even his son’s conversion does not deter him from his principles. He chooses to stand by his own ideologies throughout his life and the only time he breaks away from his principles is to end his life. The revolts throughout sticking to his principles punishing himself for his actions when he broke his principles. The actions were inevitable as he was top strict with his principles and ideologies.
In Endgame, the story has a theme of the revolt in the mind of young man who is choosing to living to give his services to the old man who took him in and raised him, a blind man named Hamm. Clov the servant. The absurd play stand true to its context distorting the perception of thoughts and relationships in the play. One of the important motifs in the play is the flea out of which the humanity could be reborn. The idea of revolution is in the fact that though Ham asks Clov to kill him, Clov instead does not kill him but leaves him alone instead awaiting death to which Ham said his Handkerchief is only thing left. The themes of absurd and the subtle ideological revolution is intermingles in the play. The changes were inevitable with time but not necessary.
