Or maybe since Candy said that he should have killed his dog, George may hurt Lennie and vice versa. What was the author trying to say when Lennie crushed Curley’s hand? I think that the author was trying to show that Lennie can crush anything easily, even if he doesn’t mean to. I also think that Lennie crushing Curley’s hand will foreshadow that he will crush something else further in the book too. Maybe an object?
This quote shows that many Thebans have died from the plague that the Gods have unleashed. One can also argue that they seem this way due to the fact that they waited till Oedipus had become the king of Thebes to punish him and his parents for attempting to go against his prophecy and in turn, attempting to disobey the word of the Gods. However, their not interrupting with Oedipus’ fate can be correlated to the belief that our fates are pre-determined and irreversible, it may have been impossible for the Gods to interfere even if they wanted to. This shows how powerful the ruling cosmic order of fate was; even the Gods could not act against it. The Gods also give an impression of being easily angered as Oedipus essentially wanted to prevent his horrible fate of killing his father and bedding his mother, which is a reasonable notion but Oedipus still angered the Gods despite his honest
The Walking Dead has been known for its infuriating cliffhangers for a while now, but fans were certainly not expecting the most jaw-dropping ending in last night’s season finale. Although viewers were rewarded with a tense look at Jeffrey Dean Morgan’s Negan, “Last Day on Earth” ended without revealing who the villain killed. Now TWD executive producer Robert Kirkman has spoken up about the cliffhanger, stating that the point of the episode was to change Rick’s “mindset!” The TWD comic book creator was one of the guests on Talking Dead (via ComicBook.com), where he addressed fans’ complaint about the cliffhanger. “First of all, as a fan, I love cliffhangers. I love that tension,” Kirkman admitted.
For him the word ‘horror’ had become obsolete… To Robert Neville the situation merely existed as natural fact” (Matheson 84). He honestly can not acknowledge the horror of his situation. He acts and thinks as if he has been doing this his entire life. The note she leaves warning him also makes the readers start to think that these vampires might actually be more human than him. However, in the film Robert changes from antihero to more of a hero.
They are intended to die. Additionally, do not endeavor to out-do the antagonist because the tougher you endeavor to be, the more worse your death will be, not quick and painless. Unless you are being attacked by an animal, then you are going to die belligerently either way. Do not have an affair.. If you’re doing what “adults do” in a horror movie, you are going to die, horror films give great examples for kids not to do drugs, sex, alcohol, and violence.
At the beginning, he was the scared and reserved would-be accountant. However, much like the new characters that kept appearing every time Blake woke up on the train, he turned into the epitome of the crazy world he had been dropped into near the end of the story. If Blake had not have undergone this change, he undoubtedly would have been killed at the beginning when Charlie Dickinson accidentally shot Thel and there would have been no story. Although the argument could be made that Charlie’s shot did in fact kill
Presumably many misfortunes could have been avoided in the movie had Quincy, Raheem, and Steel not followed Bishop’s plan to rob the store or had one of them taken action after the incident. The crew’s conversation before robbing the store goes as follows “everybody got their gloves? Yeah, man. Ol' man Quiles is in there by himself. Let's do this.” Robbing the convenience store was a major turning point in the movie that caused a domino effect of events that could have been avoided.
I couldn’t believe they were going to charge him with murder just because of one eyewitness. I was disappointed that law enforcement didn’t bother getting a search warrant for his house or even talk to his family. I couldn’t believe Michael Glove beat Brenton just to get him to confess because Michael just wanted to end the case. Also, if law enforcement would have just got the purse and check for fingerprints then everything would have been handled differently. Instead, they thought it was easier to charge him with murder and ruin a fifteen year old life.
In the essay “Who Killed Benny Paret?,” the author discusses multiple ways the boxer Benny Paret could have been killed. He says that it could have been the ref not acting in time to stop the fight, the doctor who did his physical; maybe he approved Benny when he should not have been approved, or maybe it was the manager who might have wanted Benny to just jump back in the ring without a full recovery from his last fight. All of these suggestions seem reasonable, but they are not the cause of his death. None of those people specifically killed Benny; therefore it is not their fault that he has passed, even if the previous accusations are true. The author then says that it is the punch and the impact of the punch to the head that killed Benny.
But he still carelessly killed a stranger that could have easily been his father. Oedipus made the choice to kill Laïos, who to him was only a stranger, that day. It wasn’t because of his fate or the prophecy, as many have argued. With the little bit of control he had over his life he chose to commit this crime. It is known that Oedipus had suspicions about whether Polybos was his true father from this quote.
