The first murder of King Duncan only sealed Macbeth’s paranoia and served as a foundation for the murders of Banquo and Macduff’s family. After the first murder, Macbeth feels a colossal amount of guilt and shame. After the murder of Banquo, he feels that it is not enough since Fleance escaped, developing his guilt and shame of harming others into a fear for his own safety; a devastating degradation. However, during the assassination of Macduff’s family, Macbeth gives the command immediately without thought and without a trace of remorse after doing so. This thereby concludes his psychological downfall as he no longer feels guilty, ashamed, or fears
Although the Miller’s tale is interesting and well written, it’s not quite morally sound and is nothing compared to the Knight and his tale. The Knight is in the upper class while the Miller is with the city folk who are turning into the new middle class. The Miller upset the host when he began his tale because of the order of the tales were suppose to follow the social class structure, but the Miller drunkenly insisted in following right after the Knight when it was suppose to be the Monk. The subject of the Knight’s tale was way more interesting and appropriate compared to the Miller’s Tale who’s tale consisted of adultery and inappropriate acts of love. Finally, there were lessons in each tale of course but the Knight’s lesson far surpasses that of the Miller’s.
He is jealous of Othello, show in, “I confess it is my shame to be so fond/but it is not in my virtue to amend it” (1.3:316-317). Roderigo is desperate for Desdemona and Iago takes advantage of this and makes him do thing such as kill Cassio. Roderigo does all of Iago’s dirty work and makes his plan successful.

These different types of betrayal impact the results of the novel in many ways, but certain betrayals effect the story more than others. The three types of betrayal described in Malory’s Le Morte d’Arthur, have drastic effects on the characters. Lancelot and Guinevere having an affair causes Lancelot to be too impure receive the Holy Grail, leading to his fall as the best knight. “ A reclusive hermit explains to Lancelot that he's on a spiritual quest right now and he can't expect to be the best knight in the world when it comes to that because of all the sinning he has done” (Morth Book XV). Lancelot’s punishment is not obtaining the Holy Grail because of his affair and not being pure (Kennedy 63).
“What did he there? Could he be… the murderer of my brother? No sooner did that idea cross my imagination, than I became convinced of its truth,” (50). The truth is the creature did kill Frankenstein’s brother, but it is the speed and immediate confidence in authority of his accusation that is problematic. Victor has now revealed his inclination to imagine a crime committed by someone and quickly believe it as true; in this case, his accusations will always go towards the creature, because of his relentless hate for the being, and he will always believe the creature to be a criminal.
Respect is considered easiest to lose but hardest to gain. The selfless turned selfish tyrant Macbeth from William Shakespeare's Macbeth, the 37th U.S president Richard Nixon, and the once benevolent shadowhunter Valentine from Cassandra Clare’s The Mortal Instruments series all exhibit these similar traits; corruption, do their bidding and conspiring to get rid of their enemies. To begin, corruption was the previous men’s, stated above, main cause of their loss of respect. Macbeth was a brave man who had good intentions but his newly gained power turned him into a selfish murderer who has ‘“ For [his] own good, All causes shall give way. [he is] in blood, Stepped in so far that, should [he] wade no more, Returning were as tedious as
The use of such passionate words and clever placement of italics allows Shelley to portray sheer hatred in two sentences; “Nothing in human shape could have destroyed that fair child. He was the murderer!” (Shelley 63). In this excerpt the use of such charged words mean the difference between anger and indifference. For instance, this is the same passage with some words changed: ‘Nothing human could have killed that kid. He was the killer!’ Just changing a few words can make all the difference here, and Shelley hits the mood right on the nose.
The narrator describes the friar as “that excellent limiter, the good friar” in The Friar’s Prologue. In actuality this is communicated in jest because the profession of the friar has similar faults as that of the summoner. Later the summoner tells of a friar who erases the names of donors from his tables as soon as they were out of sight. This shows that the way the system worked was corrupt. Chaucer is able to demonstrate that the medieval church was not without its own faults and sins.
Cook: The Cook is one of the vulgar pilgrims of the journey who becomes involved with violence and arguments along the way. He is a commoner who does not hide his class and behavior and tells a short, incomplete fabliau. Canon and his Yeoman: The Canon and his Yeoman join the pilgrimage in the middle of its course and bring a sense of mystery to the group. They heard glorious tales of the stories told en route to Canterbury and craved to be a part of that excitement. The canon does not reveal his profession and leaves the group as his Yeoman gives clues.
Life is one of the most valuable assets of a human that cannot be compared to anything else. And no one wants to lose it. People always are afraid about death and no one knows how will die, it can be either natural death that is a density or murder that is the action of taking the life of a human being. Capital punishment for murder is death penalty, it means a life for a life and an eye for an eye. Criminals who commit murder are divided in two groups, ones commit murder for self-defense and another group does it for fun.
