For Marie she describes that "veils of love" is just hate that transforms into longing. At a young age, Marie is introduced to love in a very distorted way. Like Marie, many natives experienced a false sense of love in boarding schools and the psychological effects of this transcend generations. At the start of their relationship, Marie believed that Sister Lopolda had a special instinct and knowledge of the devil's whereabouts. "She knew as much about him as my grandma, who called him by other names and was not afraid" (Erdrich 45).
This shows the author is trying to show us the poor background that he had, and he was never raised by his parents and later was raised by abusive orphanages. The novel represents Perry as mendacious and a criminal for being guilty of the murder of the Clutter family. Even though Perry is a criminal, the readers desire to learn more about him and learn
Another instance of an illogical death was the death of a high school teacher named Edgar Derby. Derby “pulled political wires” (Vonnegut 38) to initially be allowed to fight, but he was well-suited for the war, and he survived the fighting, getting captured, and the bombing of Dresden. However, after the war ended and some prisoners of war were taking war souvenirs, Derby “was caught with a teapot he had taken from the catacombs. He was arrested for plundering. He was tried and shot” (Vonnegut 95).
Capote used qualitative research methods to write one of the greatest American books called In Cold Blood. The movie shows how Capote obtained information from people who were connected to the murder of a family in a rural setting to write this award winning book. Post at least two salient points regarding the ethics (or lack or ethics) that you gleaned about obtaining the information for the book from the movie in your discussion post. I identified the salient points regarding a lack of ethics. In the movie, Truman obtained a proper lawyer for two killers as they were misled by counsel in their initial trial and waved their rights so they could “create favor with the judge.” Truman used this to gain favor with the killers to work on his article
He is portrayed as a mastermind in the cold-blooded killing of the Clutters family, a man with little respect for the lives of others, which can be seen through Dick’s expression before the murder of the Clutters when he converses Perry, “We’re gonna go in there and splatter those walls with hair” (Capote 234). This sudden tone shift enables Capote to depict Dick as a cruel and immoral character. Dick’s lack of empathy and concern for other people beside himself allow him to commit crimes without remorse, which is in contrast to Perry’s moral contemplation after each bad actions they committed. Moreover, Dick is represented as the true criminal with evident motives in murdering the Clutters, while Perry is seen as a vulnerable victim who depends on Dick for validation and acceptance, something in which Dick happily provides in order to manipulate Perry, as Capote writes, “Dick became convinced that Perry was that rarity, ‘a natural born killer,’—absolutely sane but conscienceless, and capable of dealing with or without motive, the coldest-blooded deathblows. It was Dick's theory that such a gift could, under his supervision, be profitably exploited” (Capote 205).
Beatty 's motives were to protect himself from higher powers, revealing that people will do almost anything to protect themselves or people they love. In the book Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury, after driving to Montag’s house, Beatty asked him to burn it down. Some would say that this was Beatty’s challenging Montag or that Beatty was doing right and protecting himself. However if Beatty had not taken the calls and burned Montag 's home down, he would have had consequences for disobeying the rules. The government in the book had been brainwashing their citizens into believing books were bad for society and were constantly distracting them.
Throughout the novel, the author debates Perry’s absence of regret as well as his failure to take responsibility for his actions. He blames society for the person he has become. His perception is that the society to blame is his mother, and the community should accept the punishment for the way he was treated by his mother and the during the time he spends in juvenile corrections facilities. Perry does not understand why he is facing the death penalty, yet he committed the crime at a point where he was “Predisposed to gross lapses in reality contact and extreme weakness in impulse control during periods of heightened tension and disorganization” (301). In this aspect, Perry tries to show that he is not guilty of the crime because he could not control his instincts.
Many also believe that the 3rd attack was the fatal one. Lots of people also blame them for not helping them save Kitty’s life. Although these sources show that Kitty Genovese was fatally murdered, one source blames the murder of Kitty Genovese while the others do not. Primarily, the Ganesberg’s article partially blames the bystanders for Kitty Genovese’s murder. One eye-witness claims that he saw this fatal attack, but “didn’t want to get involved” (Gansberg).
For instance, Dostoevsky’s wife died of tuberculosis. This woman, Maria, parallels the fiance that Raskolnikov lost to typhus ("In Defense of the Epilogue of Crime and Punishment"). Even though little information appears about this fictional woman from the novel, both deaths had a terrible effect on the men involved. Raskolnikov fell into an isolated depression, which eventually lead to his madness and crime. Dostoevsky suffered from extreme guilt.
He thinks of reasons as to why Ivanovna should be murdered, one of them is that her money could help finance his education and help his family. Though, the valuables he stole from her are quickly thrown away by Raskolnikov which essentially means he throws out one the main reasons he commits this murder in the first place. He is delusional before the murder which impairs his reasoning, this becomes the main reason of his murder and later on his psychological
