On the contrary, “The Devil and Tom Walker”, the main character, realized that his deal with the devil was bad for him, he tried to deceive the devil. At the end, he was taken by the devil and everything he had earned became nothing. “On searching his coffers all his bonds and mortgages were found reduced to cinders. In place of gold and silver his iron chest was filled with chips and shavings; two skeletons lay in his stable instead of his half-starved horses, and the very next day his great house took fire and was burnt to the ground”. (Washington,1824, p.10 ) Similarly, they both deserved what they ask for because they desired something more

Act 1 is a considered as a turning point in the play’s plot. Yet, before defining the content of the extract or examining its form, one should highlight its context. Hamlet’s doubts are confirmed as he musters up his courage and decides to take action. The ghost speaks to him, claiming to be his father’s spirit, come to rouse him to revenge his death, a “foul and most unnatural murder” (1.5.30). Hamlet is appalled at the revelation that his father has been murdered, and the alleged spirit of the former king tells him that the only “villain” to blame is Claudius “who now wears his crown”.
Romeo and Juliet is a well known tragic love story, written by William Shakespeare.

Calculated killer or delusional madman? In the story, the “Tell-Tale-Heart” by Edgar Allan Poe, the main character (a man) wants to kill an old man because of his blue vulture’s eye, which he assumes is evil. Throughout the story, the murderer denies his madness, saying that is simply because of his “sharpened” senses that he hears things in both heaven and hell. The story takes place in an old man’s room, and, little by little, the main character leads the reader through his calculated scheme to kill the old man and get rid of his eye for good. Based on the evidence presented in the 8th Amendment regarding the Death Penalty, the main character should be sentenced to 20 years of prison and psychiatric treatment, because he did many things a madman would do, like hearing amplified voices and sounds, and because he actually spent time planning the murder of the old man, and it’s not just on the spot
Desdemona and Othello decided not to share the news of their marriage, likely because they were afraid of their interracial marriage becoming a cause for concern or because nobody knew of their relationship in the first place. Once Iago finds out, he immediately tells another character, Roderigo, to shout the news up to Desdemona’s father. Once her father Brabantio learns of this, he gets fearful for Desdemona. Because of Iago spilling the secret, Othello got insulted for his race, his age, and his manners by Brabantio in court. He got embarrassed and had to publicly defend himself in the Duke’s meeting room, something that an “honest” (as described many times by himself and others) character like Iago shouldn’t have done.
Willy says [nothing her mending] “what 's that?” Linda says “just mending my stockings. They’re so expensive” Willy says [angrily, taking them from her] “I won’t have you mending stockings in this house! Now throw them out”(Miller 26)! Willy got mad very quickly because he knew that he cheated on his wife; Willy had bought the woman some stockings, so when Linda said something about stockings, he went into a panic so he started yelling at her. In the play, it shows Willy is soft and insecure not just a crazy man.
By doing that a huge conflict was created in the story and multiple characters had to fake that Hero was dead while they find the culprit behind this. This also happened in The Outsiders when Dally’s girlfriend cheated on him while he was in prison. By cheating on him Dally was upset over how unloyal she was and broke up with her. Another example is in the poem “ The Charge of the Light Brigade” when cavalry men charged at enemy lines even though it meant certain death. This showed how honor gave them the courage to face their conflict, and go through with the blunder anyways.
When Hamlet goes to see her after his play, he makes her realize what wrong she has done. It causes her to cry out, “O Hamlet, thou hast cleft my heart in twain” (3.4.177). She has no clue who she really has feelings for. Is it her first husband or her current husband that killed the first one? At this point, she still doesn’t know that Claudius killed her first husband, but it still causes her grief about whether marrying her husband’s brother was the right thing to do.
