It was hate which made him exact revenge through his profession. In fact, it is surprising to see that in Sherlock there is a more rational and lighter hate, a hate which was created by hate itself and not by shylock 's accused evilness. His hate was a product of the hateful treatment meted to him and his tribe by the society and the biasness of the state against him and his tribe. Jews couldn 't own land or property in 16th century Europe and they earned by money lending. Thus for Shylock to be usurer was not a choice, it was his only choice.
During the Great Depression money and jobs were a difficult thing to attain, instead, what Frank Lucas does is steal money and pursue immoral acts to achieve his desires. This ties in with Frank Lucas in the film because he does corruptive actions, like the one’s in this quote, that prove his character becomes destroyed by immorality. It is evident that Gatsby and Lucas great aspirations destruct each of the character’s nature.

It was the Nurture of society that made Armand Aubigny ashamed of Desiree and their baby. It was that feeling of superiority over that race, taught to him by society, that made him hate her, the baby, and made him feel as though God was punishing him. It made him feel obliged to have slaves, which he punished while in a bad mood. If it had been Nature that overpowered, surely the compassionate genes Armand’s father had would have passed down to him and the hateful, self serving genes of Pap Finn would have been inherited by Huck. In this case, it is
He knows what is right and wrong but one example has been haunting him in his life. Now in a Puritan society, sin had to have been confessed publicly and they must bear their shame. This however goes against what the Word actually says and this is what created Arthur Dimmesdale as a character. He most likely has already repented to God but his guilt will not leave until he confesses it to his congregation and it leads him to other “ways” of repentance. Being reminded of his guilt 24/7 causes his his health to deteriorate to the point of death, possibly alluding to the fact that the wages of sin are death.

There is irony in the way that Spade thinks about himself. He gets angry with Brigid and others for lying to him or trying to trick him, when he’s doing it himself. He is either oblivious to this fact or he feels that only he should be allowed to do such a thing. At the end of the book Brigid expresses her frustration with him for tricking her. “‘Only pretending you cared – to trap me like this?
He states that Jews and Christians are both humans and they should be treated the same. 2. However, in Act 1, Scene 3, Shylock said, “I hate him for he is a Christian” Shylock is clearly contradicting himself. And this would have caused an uproar since the Elizabethan audiences were Christians, causing them to hate his character. D. Shylock enjoys hearing that Antonio’s ship had wrecked overseas and that Antonio is losing a fortune because of it.
Everything was happy until Douglass’s master knew that Douglass’s mistress taught Douglass, and the master warned mistress that her behavior was dangerous and unsafe because teaching slaves to read were discouraged or prohibited. Slaveholders feared slaves’ rebellions and attempts of escape. After the master’s “lecture,” Douglass lost his teacher who became coldness like his husband. Douglass was so sad and wrote in his book that “That cheer eye, under the influence of slavery, soon became red with rage; that voice, made all of sweet accord, changed to one of harsh and horrid discord; and that angelic face gave place to that of demon”(Douglass, page 19). Thus, slavery, as the poison, blinded human being’s eyes and made people discard their good qualities which they had initially.
The fighting began because of aroused suspicion. The two main religions at the time were Christian and Muslim. The two religions were suspicious of one another mainly because of the Crusades, and the persistence of the Spanish Christians that led to the recapture of Spain from Muslim control.

As well as all this, the Jews were being tortured.
