Civilized and savage behaviors are described as contrasted points of view, when in reality, aren’t that different. This is incessantly shown all throughout the book. “The man struck the shrewd blow he had purposely withheld for so long, and Buck crumpled up and went down, knocked utterly senseless. “He’s no slouch at dog breakin’, that’s wot I say,’ one of the men cried on the wall enthusiastically.”(P11) This shows that the supposedly “refined” humans could not feel remorse for the abuse of an innocent dog, when they selfishly had something to gain from that horrid violence. Clearly not even one person had the intention of stopping the maltreatment of Buck.
Proctor, though, gave very little throughout the play. John Proctor is a dishonorable man, due mainly to his wrathful behavior, massive ego, and selfishness. Throughout The Crucible, John Proctor proves himself to be dishonorable by being wrathful towards others. In Act II, when Herrick is about to take Proctor’s wife Elizabeth away, Proctor rips the court’s arrest warrant for Elizabeth and yells “Out with you!” (Miller 173). John Proctor shows that he cannot control himself, ripping a legal warrant.
Even though in these two stories tackle different things the main character is obsessed over, the main idea of harming other peoples lives because of their strange obsession remains the same. Clearly, obsession can really make one think so irrationally that they forget the basic principles of humanity and they end up doing ridiculous things without usually realizing until after they have taken the wrong action. The lead character in “The Tell-Tale Heart”, had gone so crazy because of his obsession over his eyes, that he decided to take the old man’s life in a very cruel way. The old man had never harmed, insulted, or wronged him in any way, and rather they both cared about each other but “it wasn’t the man who vexed me [him], but the evil eye” . Gradually, he made up his mind to take the life of the old
Grendel is delighted with his evil actions, cannot comprehend the pain he just inflicted upon the men. Grendel’s lack of empathy is the reason why he gave into his evil impulses. Grendel is unaware and unaffected by the pain and suffering which he causes upon others. He was born to “murderous creatures” (23). This means he was surrounded by evil his whole life, driving him to be and carry out acts of evil.
The motive powers of his fellow men were to keep everyone as single-minded as possible which led to the many rationalizations of Equality 7-2521’s distinctive ways. Equality 7-2521 lived as an outlaw in his society, which fortunately set him apart from the rest of the population. “It is obvious who profits and who loses by such a percept.” stated by Rand. Equality 7-2521 obviously was the blessed mortal when compared to the cursed ones that did not think to step outside that crowded, vacuous box that authority had them held captive in. Judging and not to be judged was the main point of Rand’s short essay.
Subsequently creating a rising hope for the people who fear the man who gave him this exact scar. Well, Voldemort is the epidemy of the sense of evil everyone who is against him dares not speak his name and the ones who follow him have an unrelenting loyalty with him. His followers have such loyalty because of the way that Voldemort’s authority has over them he controls them through torture and the prize of him not killing you.

Harry is the only one able to defeat Voldemort, and he knows this which makes him relentless when hunting him down, but this comes to no prevail because of the infinite hope Harry has placed in the heart of the resistance.
Interactionist Andrei Chikatilo worked alone through out all his killings. He did not share his plans with anyone neither, before or after he committed them. There was no clear person who inspired his actions beside his own discoveries he made about how to satisfy himself. As the interactionalist theory believes failure of self direction and insufficient social roles are the main causes of criminal behaviour, which are highly accurate regarding Andrei Chikatilo, still, he wants power over others more then acceptance in society, as he already has it (class notes). He is prepared to do this alone, as he wants the complete satisfaction for his own extremely personal and private gains, not for the acknowledgment of others.
In the novel A Separate Peace Gene shows he is evil by his jealousy, no remorse for anything, and that he is able to hide the evil from everyone else in the book?t..

He loses sight of what is good and turns into a manipulative person and tries so hard to fight with Finny and doesn't just be his own person. It is always better to be yourself then trying to be like someone else.
In chapters 14-16, Mary Shelley teaches the readers that the monster is very lonely and didn 't have any friends. Satan had his companions, fellow-devils, to admire and encourage him; but i am solitary and abhorred.” The monster yelled and asked his creatour why he created him and him only and asked why Victor made him so ugly looking. “Do not despair. To be friendless is indeed to be unfortunate, but the hearts of men, when unprejudiced by any obvious self-interest, are full of brotherly love and charity. Rely, therefore, on your hopes: and if these friends are good and amiable, do not despair.” (page 95) The old man is saying that it is okay if you don 't have friends.
“This isn't a nice cozy world for anyone -- especially not for anyone that's different,’ he said. (Wyndham,chapter 11). What this means is that David does not like the world he’s currently living in, because it has rules that are affecting everyone that is a deviant, through his interaction with Sophie (who is a deviant) and other deviants like spider man, he feels confident, that how deviants are not a big impact to anyone, the only thing that is different is their appearance, other than that, they are like us with a heart and brain that all function the same. Therefore self confidence is the most central theme in “The Chrysalids.” Where David believes that deviants are equal in terms of every
However, never did Okonkwo imagine that his downfall would be because of his own tragic flaw. Okonkwo 's violent and rash nature made him difficult to work with and gave people the wrong image of who he was.

Over the course of the novel, it is apparent that Okonkwo is changing internally and he just isn 't letting anyone see that. For example, when Ikemefuna comes to live in Umuofia and is given to Okonkwo

Steinbeck intended for the character the reader will feel the most sympathy for is Lennie. The mental disabilities of Lennie, included with his overwhelming strength that he can’t control, makes you feel the most sympathy for him because he’s mostly unaware of the problems he causes and doesn’t comprehend the extreme consequences for his actions. Lennie’s mindset is that of a small child, innocent and curious, never out of anger or meanness, but the fact that he’s a man with beast-like strength is what causes the trouble for Lennie. Every bad action Lennie has committed has never came from a state of anger. There was never any meanness, nor anger in his intentions.
