Mr. Ewell’s wrongdoings lead to the death of Tom Robinson, and later he himself was killed for his unjust actions. The mockingbird was symbolic of Tom’s true, pure heart, and his death was because of nothing but the inequities within society. Mr. Ewell’s sin caused sorrow and horror in Scout’s life, but it also lead to her realization that discrimination was wrong, something that Atticus wished for her to know all along. Further along in the story, Scout’s growth is proved when Atticus suggests sending Boo Radley to trial for killing Bob Ewell. Scout says, “‘Well, it’d be sort of like shootin’ a mockingbird, wouldn’t it?’” (276).
Any good book needs to have suspense, especially a murder mystery. In the book And Then There Were None, written by Agatha Christie, there is a lot of suspense holding the reader at the edge of their seat. The book took place on Indian Island, where ten people were invited to visit for ten different reasons. That sentence alone creates suspense. The three reason why there is suspense in the book is the setting, changing the points of view, and eliminating the unknown character.
'Bob Ewell meant business,' Mr. Tate muttered." (page 269). This shows that Bob Ewell deserved to die because he was trying to kill Atticus' kids just because he made Bob look bad in court. He's a coward cause he didn’t go after Atticus like he said he would, he went after his
How could a person who killed another person be a tragic hero? a Tragic hero is someone who learns from their own mistakes, or someone who undergoes great suffering. Macbeth feels no remorse for his killings which makes the situation worse. I do not believe that Macbeth is a tragic hero because he contributes to people's killings and he does not feel sorry for his actions. For instance, Macbeth was plotting on how to kill Banquo.
The Misfit is an escaped convict who travels with two cohorts that help him murder innocent people. Obviously an evil man, Arthur F. Bethea describes The Misfit as the anti-christ, stating: “Indeed, like Satan, The Misfit is an anti-Christ… The most significant contrast is that Jesus sacrificed himself so that his true followers could enjoy everlasting life, while O’Connor’s villain is relentlessly associated with death” (247). The Misfit is angry at jesus, he states: "Jesus was the only one that ever raised the dead," The Misfit continued, "and He shouldn't have done it. If He did what He said, then there's nothing for you to do but throw away everything and follow him, and if He didn't, then it's nothing for you to do but enjoy the few minutes you got left…" The Misfit does not believe in Jesus so he believes that life is pointless. This could be a reason he kills so mercilessly and does not feel remorse for his victims.
If the “slang” words are used by this important white figure, like a president or a motivational speaker then they are taken less seriously and often stereotyped as dumb or stupid. When a black figure code-switches this is a norm, so nobody pays attention to what everyone is expecting to happen. An example of this would be when Young expresses in his article about President Obamas wife, Michelle. He says that she used words like “ain’t” in her speech and nobody cared or thought lower of her for it. In the novel THUG, Starr’s boyfriend tries to talk like Starr and Seven, her brother, but gets [jokingly] made fun of by Starr.
In the entirety of the play Macbeth gains power by murdering his enemies and those who suspect him. This also ties into his downfall, if you hear the witches prophecies clearly you might be able to tell that they also predict that happening. Yet Macbeth blinded by power has overlooked this and is only looking to gain more strength and build on what he has already. “Thou hast it now: king, Cawdor, Glamis, all, As the weird women promised, and I fear Thou played’st most foully for ’t.”(act 3, scene 1, pg 1). Banquo’s suspicion evidently leads to his death as Macbeth has him murdered before the banquet.
He murdered his father, although he did not know it was his father. Oedipus was just an unlucky man with a horrible fate. He had to be banished, because he made a law that who ever di this would be banished, so he banished himself without knowing. He was only truly guilty of murder, not of incest or
He says that “..if I had of been there I would of known and I wouldn’t be like I am now” (367). Basically, what he is saying is that he is a cruel person for being punished for something he claims he did not do. If he truly did not commit the crime, then he shouldn’t be killing an entire family. In this story, the author puts the men as cruel persons that do not sympathize with others. The family had an accident and The Misfit choose to kill them all, instead of helping them.
After the killers told mAcbeth that they had killed Banquo, he states,¨'Tis better thee without than he within. Is he dispatched?¨ (III.iv.15). This quote reveals that he was cruel because we see Banquo as an honorable man and even Macbeth's best friend. The fact that Macbeth had Banquo killed just because he was suspicious tells the reader that Macbeth Is cruel. Also, another example of Macbeth being cruel s when he snt the murders to kill macduff's family.
Peter Van Koppen, law professor, explained in his 2009 essay that juries cannot debate, "technical issues beyond their aptitude." In cases where the accused is a well known person, members of the jury have been known to acquit the celebrity because of their notoriety. A probable example of this being O.J. Simpson. Judge Julius Howard Miner had previously complained that members of the legal profession were concerned that juries were acquitting “notorious criminals where the proof clearly indicated their guilt.” Erin Bransburu states that, “In late 2009, the U.S. was coming out of a recession.
