At this point in the book the inherent violence that has been building up through the whole story because of anger and fear takes over and they kill Simon. This shows how humans are inherently violent and without rules in place violence creates a society so defective that it drives people to kill their friends. Another example of violence creating a dysfunctional society in Lord of the Flies is when Jack and the hunters let the fire out to go kill their first pig. “I cut the pig’s throat,” said Jack, proudly, and yet twitched as he said it. “Can I borrow yours, Ralph, to make a nick in the hilt?” The boys chattered and danced.
Mercutio fights with Tybalt, which led to Tybalt stabbing him through Romeo’s arm in Act 3 Scene. Mercutio is responsible for his own death in the sense that he decided to provoke Tybalt. He would make fun of Tybalt through various jokes, which angered Tybalt. Mercutio even said, “Tybalt, you rat-catcher, will you walk?” (3.1.68). He directly asked Tybalt if he wanted to fight and even took out his own sword.
Montag did was he thought was right according to him because Montag thought that he was protecting himself and Faber, killing him to give society a chance to change, and because Beatty did not want to live anymore. This could relate to our society now days with what our thoughts are with situations and decisions being morally right or wrong. People have different a different view and perspective on certain things but Montag’s view on this situation was that he needed to kill Beatty for many different

The author’s tone in this quote is violent and bitter. Eric saying that he “hated almost everyone “, would support the reader’s thinking towards what kind of person Eric is, and what Eric is thinking. Eric’s use of language almost immediately gives the reader a hint of what he is capable of, not in the sense that he would literally “rip is head off and eat it” but in the sense that he is capable of doing bad things. Given the fact that people throughout the United States have already heard of the mass shooting in Columbine, the reader would promptly identify Eric as the killer and they would be right. The author’s purpose could be to keep the reader thinking: who is the killer?
Francis follows this pattern, thinking that because he’d done something wrong (leaving his family), he does not deserve to go back home. He reasons that staying away would be the best, and further, the right thing to do. Francis seems to have a judgmental eye as well, determining that the person who hit his friend, Rudy, in the head should also be prosecuted. Francis delivers a blow to the man. Most likely, the blow led to the raider’s death.

Ralph, alone and afraid. Is a victim of Mob mentality. The other boys, in fear of the beast, have all sided with Jack, ganging up against Ralph to kill him. Mob mentality is everywhere in Lord of the Flies, and some of the most memorable moments are the most obvious examples of Mob Mentality. Mob mentality is portrayed many time throughout Lord of the Flies, for example, when Ralph is hunted, Simon is killed, or the choir follows Jack when he leaves the group.
This time however, he is swept away by a person name the Shaper, who Grendel is ultimately scared of, because of the fact that the shaper is very good at changing the view of people very easily. During this same period, Grendel started to become more violent as well, first by attacking the humans. Grendel didn’t like the way Hrothgar lived and made the Mead Hall and in response, Grendel started to attack it at night. He killed anyone and everything that came into his sight, and even ate the humans. Grendel now became a real threat to the humans, which inevitably changed his status from sinister to pure
He tells the readers that the eye makes his “blood run cold” and because of that he had to kill him. If that’s the case then I could kill a person just because I didn’t like how their teeth looked. No, even if somebody had a another person coming out of their eye you shouldn’t take their life or treat them any different. I mean of course there are many, many violent acts in today’s world, but people nowadays should try to make this world a least a little
Additionally, Bob Ewell’s hatred towards Atticus grew, as the book went on. He got so sick and tired of him and wanted revenge. Atticus explains that, “So if spitting at my face and threatening me saved Mayella Ewell one extra beating, that’s something I’ll gladly take.” Harper Lee describes that Bob Ewell was so full of hatred that he would beat up anyone he disliked. Towards the end of the novel. Bob couldn’t control his hatred any longer so, in revenge he tries to kill Atticus’ children.
Since Grendel was born from evil he could never be happy which angered him when he heard all the people in Herot having a good time. Grendel was always sinning by murdering every night. In lines 1-2 it backs up my stating of Grendel being evil it says “A powerful monster, living down in the darkness, impatient.” Grendel was smart in many ways. One way Grendel was smart was because he knew when to strike. Grendel killed many of people undetected.
When Ralph screamed at Jack that he’s chief, Meridew in response, charged at the original leader as if he was bloodlusted. “Viciously, with full intention, he hurled his spear at Ralph..tore the skin and flesh…”(pg181). This quote not only defines the brute force of Merridew, it would also explain why the other children are afraid of Jack, Looking at this in a perspective of a hunter, if anyone were to resist him( he already shown that he has the guts to kill), Jack will just punish you mentality and physically to convert you to his side, or even murder you if you don’t. With that being said, that’s why Jack is never suited of becoming an effective leader, because he doesn’t use democracy, but rather dictatorship(just like Kim Jong
Montag, willing to break the law, states “‘That’s the good part of dying; when you’ve nothing to lose, you run any risk you want”’ (81). Montag would rather gather books to rebel for a cause then die if he is found breaking the law. He had nothing to care for, not even himself, and was ready to carry out a plan and run as many risks as he wanted to. In order to make a point, an individual must be willing to sacrifice himself or herself in order to do the right thing. While sacrificing yourself in a rebellion, risking other people may occur.
The man ran because he believed that the monster was about to hurt him, from the monster 's gruesome appearance, the man automatically assumed the monster was evil. Again because of his appearance, in which Victor created him with, many people often created similar reactions to that of this man.For example, the villagers would throw rocks at the monster to make him leave. This reaction made the monster feel even more terrible. First impressions are still a great part of society as well as the instant judgment on someone. Another example in todays society, someone could be driving around town and see an African-American male in a fancy care, the first thing that they could think of is that this man has stole someone 's car.This is an example of a common stereotype.
