The impression that Miss Emily gives us about her is that she is a “necrophiliac”. Necrophilia means a sexual attraction to dead bodies. She is mentally disturbed, and driven to her act by insanity. Miss Emily kills her victim, Barron, to keep him around because she truly loves him and she does not want to let go. Both protagonists have a distorted perception of
I think this personally because she is selfish and is willing the tear apart a family just for her own happiness. I also think she causes most of the trouble. She is a very miserable character, and she isn’t afraid to make everyone else around her suffer also. She sets Mrs. Proctor up, and stabbed herself with a needle to make it look like Elizabeth was casting spells on her to get her in trouble when she is questioned about being a witch. She does this because her and John Proctor committed adultery and Abigail is still in love with John but he doesn’t feel the same way about her.
In "The Crucible", written by Arthur Miller, Abigail Williams is the most despicable and she is the least intricate to figure out. By seeing Abigail's influence on the town of Salem, we can immediately see that she is always telling lies, manipulating her friends, and the entire town. The lies that Abigail tells, influences the destruction of the Proctor family. Abigail's emotions towards Elizabeth is she wants her death. Abigail believes throughout the plot that John Proctor was her only love because she had an affair with him and that the jealousy she had toward Elizabeth would soon come to an end.
These two stories show comparison because they showed that Adela and Emily hurting people like Adela she sent the letters which hurt them because they had those harmful things inside of their envelopes. Now for Emily she once in her life found somebody she loved and he loved her back so she didn 't want him to get away because she never found someone like this before, so she feed him some rat poison so he would die. Also at the end of the two stories the woman both got what they deserved which was Adela’s roses got cut down because she sent all of those harmful letters to people. Emily got what she deserved because she killed Homer so she ended up dying lonely and no one to talk to. So if these woman are going to be mean and harmful they got what they deserved.
Faulkner’s story demonstrates totally different plot: there is an own main character, her mental disorder and its consequences for the society. In the case of Emily Grierson the problem appeared to be in the inherited disorder, as “people in our town, remembering how old lady Wyatt, her great-aunt, had gone completely crazy at last” (Faulkner 4); and the citizens’ attitude. Miss Emily felt a pressure from people because of own origins and behavior; and these conditions finally made her to kill Homer Barron, an only potential opportunity for marriage after her father’s death. After the crime Miss Emily was not able to get rid of the body and continued to live with it until her own death. It looked like Baron became the only victim of the character’s madness here.
The Evil practices and sins will cast chaos in the town of Salem from one person. For the most part, Abigail Williams stirred up drama and made her move by accusing Goody Proctor and changes her behavior constantly to ruin Elizabeth’s marriage. Elizabeth points out “I am sure she does—and thinks to kill me, then to take my place. (Miller 170) The conflict of lust and obsessive nature is evident from Abigail and Elizabeth proctor knows she is in danger during the witch trials. Chaos and false accusations from Abigail corrupted everyone in Salem to
He tries to save himself but still Macduff and others are suspicious of him. Macduff eventually kills Macbeth because he believes that he unjustly killed the kings and his family.

In Stagecoach, the prostitute and outlaw Dallas and Ringo defy society’s definition of what it means to be a “bad guy” versus a “good guy.” Each is a victim of circumstance having lost their families to murderers. Through their actions both together and apart, they prove to be good people. This illustrates that society judges people by their jobs, not by their characters. This shows that the movie makers think civilization is bad. This idea would be popular in 1939 because many people were poor and didn’t want to be defined by their social standing.
George knew he had to shoot Lennie because if he didn’t do it, the other guys would and it wouldn’t be calm or quick. I think George killed Lennie because he knew it was the right thing to do. It’s obvious that Lennie has a mental illness and it makes it difficult for him to understand things. For example, when he grabbed the lady’s red dress in Weed, he didn’t realize he was doing anything wrong. He also didn’t realize that touching Curley’s wife’s hair was wrong until he accidentally murdered her.
In Medea, a surge of insanity purges her after she is betrayed by her husband Jason causing many cruel and harsh actions to follow from her. The ending result a murder scene. Is she really at blame for her actions and should she be punished? Believing that she is truly insane this would entail that she is completely innocent and therefore not to be punished. Thesis: Medea’s insanity which led her to killing her children suggests she let her emotions take control of her proving she is not at fault for her actions.
