Down in the catacombs, Montresor is teasing Fortunato. Then Montresor is starting to put the wall up with Fortunato in it alive, “I had finished a portion of the last and the eleventh ; there remained, but a single stone to be fitted and plastered in. I struggled with its weight ; I place it partially in its destined position.” (page 4) Montresor was killing Fortunato alive, by putting him in the wall and covering it up so that no one will be able to find him. He wanted him to suffer and die a long, slowly death. Another time Montresor showed relentlessness was when he said his heart grew sick.
Because his crime were so great, his soul were forced into Hell before his time and demons occupied his body. “How my body stands in the world i do not know. So privileged is this rim of Ptolomea, that often souls fall to it before dark Atropos has cut their thread.”(pg.274) Dante couldn’t believe what Friar Alberigo told him, so Alberigo told him about Branca d’Oria. “ You surely must have known his body: Branca d’Oria is its name, and many years have passed since he rained down.” (pg.274) His sin is similar to Friar Alberigo, he invited his father-in-law to a banquet and murdered him and his
Since the beginning of time man has been headstrong and egotistical leading to struggles with other people. In Edgar Allen Poe's "The Cask of Amontillado," Montresor makes it known to the readers that his friend Fortunato has done wrong against him many times. Montresor decides that he has had enough and tricks the drunk Fortunato into following him into the catacombs. Montresor chains Fortunato to the wall and buries him alive. Based on his actions we can tell that Montresor is full of revenge because he plots to kill his own friend.
Instead, he continues to act as if nothing is wrong and he has done nothing wrong. Because of Claudius’ failure to think about the consequences of his actions and his decision to not confess to the murder, he makes a fatal mistake. The consequences of admitting to the murder may have been unfortunate, but few consequences can compare to
This relationship had gone too far to this point because it was very wicked, violent, and ultimately sad. The cat has caused him to do dreadful things to the people around him especially murdering his wife. Furthermore, the alcohol has made everything worse since he became much more aggressive than what he is now. Towards the end of this dreadful story the character was being investigated for the murder of his own wife. It seems that he almost got away with it, but the black cat appeared with what seemed as a corpse of his dead wife.
Then Romeo sets out in his sorrow to an apothecary and says, “Come hither, man. I see that thou art poor: hold, there is forty ducats: let me have a dram of poison, such soon-speeding gear as will disperse itself through all the veins that the life-weary taker may fall dead and that the trunk may be discharged of breath as violently as hasty powder fired doth hurry from the fatal cannon 's womb.” These quotes show you that Romeo is planning to kill himself because of Juliet faking her death, which Romeo doesn’t know about. In the end, Romeo kills himself by poison and dies by Juliet and then Juliet stabs herself and dies when she finds Romeo dead. This is truly a tragic story because of the deaths of these two young lovers because of one of Tybalt’s
In this type of mental illness, victims think people are plotting against them or their family. Some patients have auditory hallucinations. Individuals tend to plan to protect themselves from the prosecutors. Edmund planned his murders in a very organised manner and did stick to it until the end, which included killing, then decapitating and removing hands. He was skillful killer who was never caught by the police, both his arrest were intentional.
Death occurs for both the Montague and Capulet families. Mercutio’s death occurs from a battle with Tybalt. Which than leads to Tybalt’s death by Romeo. This results in the banishment of Romeo. Separating the two lovers, Juliet goes to desperate measures and takes a concoction, making her seem dead.
Edgar Allan Poe 's The Black Cat and The Tell-Tale Heart are very similar in the way that they portray insanity. In The Black Cat the narrator was an introvert that becomes an alcoholic and becomes “insane” when he starts to not feel any emotions when he does anything, cruel or not. In The Black Cat the narrator did things that many would consider insane, such as taking a cats’ eye out or hanging the cat because you love it. The narrator, despite being an alcoholic, did things that even if you were intoxicated would make you insane to be ok with. The narrator, in a drunken stupor, took the black cats’ eye out, then afterwards, after feeling some remorse at least, decided to hang the cat because he loved it.
