He became a nuisance; troubling and threatening for the people of Iping, forcing Marvel to become his accomplice and killing brutally. "I clean lost my temper, the fools! Why couldn't they leave me alone?" (p.180) The invisible man alienated himself from the remainder of the civilization, inflicting people to bestow upon him a way of suspicion and distrust.

In the plot of the novel, I would like to mention the fact that Victor Frankenstein had no respect to dead people and to death itself. He did not fear God and was obsessed with an idea of bringing back to life a dead person. Eventually, he created a monster with the help of alchemy books, which are not actual scientific books. Victor made a creature out of body parts of people, who were recently buried. When the creature came to life, he was extremely terrified by its appearance and abandoned it.
The Tell-Tale Heart: The Power of Madness and Obsession The Tell-Tale Heart by Edgar Allan Poe is a short story that mainly focuses on the narrator and the old man. The narrator is a person who puts an end to the old man by smashing a bed on him. He did this to not see the old man’s vulture eyes on any occasions again. This caused by his own obsession and his uncontrollable turbulent madness. At the denouement, he ended up exposing his own crime because he thought that the officers that he is talking to was mocking him by that he was overcome by his own disquietude.
Unjustified Insanity After the London blitz, during the conclusion of World War 2, many people including families lived in horrible conditions. Many high-class families were poor due to so many bombs hitting their homes and businesses. In “The Destructors” by Graham Greene, Trevor's actions were unjustified because he had no reason to target a specific person. He just wanted to destroy everything in the house to make someone feel the same as he does. Trevor’s actions to destroy Old Misery’s home were not logical, due to Old Misery compassion to the gang.
Victor destroys the mate he is creating because he had lots of doubts and he felt tricked. I know this because one doubts he said about creating the mate was, "Had I a right, for my own benefit, to inflict this curse upon everlasting generations?" So he felt like it was a mistake or a regret. He also felt like it was a mistake because after all the doubts he thought of he later seen the creature and he promised that he wouldn 't follow him. The creature looked at him like he tricked Victor so he destroyed the creature because he of the creature creepy scary
As proven here, his mental state is breaking. He begins to get paranoid for his actions, and believes the officers are laughing at his mistakes, his failure, but they were simply humored by a joke. When revealing the old man’s body, he did so out of pure fear, that they saw the crime he committed, just like the old man’s eye. Now allow me to explain, of course the deceased man’s eye didn’t do anything wrong to him, but that’s is not what he was telling himself. He felt as if the eye could see through him, and that it knew what he was thinking.
This shows that he is not in control of his own morals because a trivial reason made him want to kill someone he loved. So, how could you say that he is fully in control of what he is doing if he were to kill someone he loved for a trivial reason? Overall, the narrator in “The Tell-Tale Heart” kills a man, but he is not guilty due to the reason of insanity. The narrator is not guilty because he has impulsive behavior when he cuts up the old man. He also is not guilty because he cannot tell the difference between fantasy and reality, and he cannot control his own morals.
This symptom alone is known as megalomania. This sense of superiority leads Macbeth to “[be] preoccupied with fantasies about success [and] power” (Mayo Clinic Staff). He is quick to believe Macduff is in the wrong and to punish him for simply not attending the party he plans. He murders Macduff’s family and, as seen in this action, “completely lack[s] any moral integrity” (Dominic, 256). He chooses his “role as a stage-tyrant” and continuously shows how uncaring he is toward others (Felperin 167).
The boys kill Simon in the book because the boys think he is a form of fear, the beast. At first, the beast is nothing but the in boys imaginations, but then as time passes, they create images in their head of what the beast looks like. Simon awakens, and then finds the parachutist that frightened Sam and Eric. He then examines it and realizes it is not the beast. He attempts to go inform the others of what he sees, but the other see him as the beast because of his appearance.
However, he fundamentally makes the choice to murder Duncan. Before Macbeth performs this treasonous act, he behaves as though he is extremely unwilling to do so and his brain begins to play tricks on him. “Is this a dagger which I see before me, / The handle toward my hand? Come, let me clutch thee,” (Shakespeare 2.I.40-41). Although Macbeth experiences guilt before he kills Duncan, he reaches an entire new level of paranoia and fear after he chooses to complete the plan.
