An Irony is evident in the eighth chapter of The Great Gatsby, due to the unexpected situation, when Wilson kills Gatsby; this episode is Ironic because of multiple reasons; At first readers should have expected instead for Tom to kill him due to the fact that Gatsby was having an affair with Daisy. On the other hand Wilson thinks when he kills Gatsby that he is avenging his wife 's deaths but that 's simply a misunderstanding and finally the murderer is the only character who seems to care about conventional morality and rules of socially acceptable behavior. In chapter eight Gatsby states that: "He couldn 't possibly leave Daisy until he knew what she was going to do. He was clutching at some last hope and I couldn 't bear to shake him free" (155). Through this quote it is evident the deep affection and love.
The short story never explains the wrong doing that Fortunado inflicted on Montresor, it only reveals Montresor’s need to kill Fortunado in order to perform the perfect act of vengeance. After he seals the tomb, however, he calls out “Fortunado!” twice almost as if he is waiting for a response. Hearing no answer, he speaks of his heart growing sick (Poe). It lets the reader know that he feels some sort of remorse, he is guilt ridden. In conclusion, it is Poe’s use of setting, dialogue and characterization to tell the horrific story of the perfect murder that makes “The Cask of Amontillado,” so intriguing.
The crack of the gun shook many souls who had read the book Of Mice And Men. In the book Of Mice And Men by John Steinbeck, George kills Lennie towards the end of the book and there are questions on whether it was wright or not for George to kill Lennie. George was right to kill Lennie because George would end it for him quickly, George would do it compassionately instead of Curley doing it in a bad way, and it would relieve Lennie of the pain and agony he has been through due to his illness. In almost every corner in the world, murder is illegal. However, in this particular situation, I believe that George 's decision to kill Lennie was acceptable due to the fact that it would have been easier for Lennie to die from George then having Curley
“It is forbidden to kill; therefore all murderers are punished unless they kill in large numbers and to the sound of trumpets.”( Voltaire) This quote helps explain the main idea of The Tell Tale Heart by Edgar Allan Poe , a story about a narrator who is the caregiver of the old man who explains his reasons and his exact ways for killing the old man he was taking care of. Out of spite for the victims vulture-like cataract eye, he plots this plan to kill for weeks to rid of the eye. He finally succeeds until a nosy neighbor foils the scheme. These are 3 reasons why the narrator is guilty of murder. In The Tell Tale Heart by Edgar Allan Poe the narrator is guilty of murder because the narrator thinks the old man could never suspect that his caregiver would ever try to kill him, he claims he can recite the story calmly and healthily as he remembers every detail unlike an insane person , and he admits to killing the old man so he is aware he has committed murder.
In John Steinbeck’s Of Mice and Men, legality is often deemed less important than morality in terms of decision making. Multiple characters throughout the novel disregard the law in order to carry out their vision of justice. When Curley, the son of the ranch owner, discovers his wife’s body, he is furious. So furious that he plans to track Lennie, a new employee with an intellectual disability, down and murder him to get revenge for his mistake. Regardless of the law, Curley’s morals based on vengeance and masculinity drive him to kill Lennie.

It wasn’t until later that Gein was suspected of killing his older brother. After the death of his mother, nobody was left who could stop him, and Gein started living out his horrible fantasies and performed disgusting experiments on dead bodies. The trigger to his serial killing was that he desperately wanted to have a sex change and for some reason that made him believe that he would need fresh bodies to transform himself.

After Duncan is killed, Macbeth hears a voice cry, "'Glamis hath murdered sleep,' and therefore Cawdor/Shall sleep no more: Macbeth shall sleep no more" (II.ii.45-46). Macbeth feels that the only way to make his anxiety and shame disappear is to kill anyone who threatens his kingship, so his conscience begins to believe that killing people is ethical.
