In most cases I can think of "escape + noun" is the same as "escape from + noun". But there may be exceptions.
Student or Learner
I saw the use of "escape responsibilities", and then I wonder whether "escape from responsibilities" is also acceptable. For example, can I say that "some people committed suicide as an easy way to escape from the responsibilities"? Is "escape something" and "escape from something" the same? For example, are the expressions "escape the city life" and "escape from the city life" both correct, or are there differences?

chance22, please take the trouble to write 'something' in full on this forum.
I know dictionaries use 'sth' but they need to save space.
