In The Scarlet Letter by Nathaniel Hawthorne and in Herman Melvilles”s Moby Dick, the main antagonists are Roger Chillinworth and Captain Ahab. Both of these characters act in a way that is portrayed as evil and can be compared because of their similarity. Roger Chillingworth’s actions can be considered evil because of the effect it has on the main characters in The Scarlet Letter. One particular even where he is obviously portrayed as evil is when he tricks the townspeople into thinking he is merely a physician caring for an ill priest, Arthur Dimmesdale. Dimmesdale had recently committed adultery with Chillingworth’s wife and he was looking for revenge.
In Mary Shelley 's Frankenstein, the creator abandons his creation undoubtedly uncertain about his invention life in the future. Frankenstein is unable to provide love and comfort toward the monster, which make him feel revengeful toward his master Fiend blames Frankenstein for all misery he faces as his creator deserts him. In Frankenstein Marry Shelley conveys that the feeling of abandonment compels him to seek revenge against his creator. To start with, Frankenstein justifies that the monster is sensitive, but suffering enforces the him to be violent. The statement is true when you learn the monster request to his creator When creature see a beautiful woman sleeping on straw.
Being in their midst put him in an immediate bad mood, and when he was in a bad mood, things died. The only saving grace, at the moment, was the simple fact that he was being led through a whorehouse filled with pretty smelling women. The overwhelming scent of overused and very cheap perfume definitely helped to douse the stench of any nearby bloodsucker. Not entirely gone, there is still a light touch of their filth in the air. The little worm that sprung him from prison had made it clear he was to show up at this address, on this specific date and time, or his contract of freedom would be revoked.
Edgar Allan Poe’s short story, “The Cask of Amontillado,” is a story about revenge. The protagonist, Montresor, feels revenge is necessary because of the many insults he has endured from another’s mouth. After all, his family’s code of arms means that no one harms him and gets away with it. In the dark toned short story, Montresor uses reverse psychology to get his revenge. To begin, Poe’s story has a dark tone that is portrayed by his use of irony.
She never recovers from the devastating death of her young husband, indirectly caused by the nature of his sexual desire. The death of her relatives are instrumental in reducing her to poverty, as do the desires, the costly “epic fornications” of her forebears. Her own promiscuous sexual desire destroys her reputation and her professional career. (Henthorne ) The death of her relatives leaves deep scars on Blanche’s soul, but even deeper scares are
Whereas the actual murderer commonly retains the characteristics needed to commit murder in cold blood, in Macbeth, that idea is twisted. Macbeth physically murders King Duncan, but maintains misgivings over doing so, while Lady Macbeth orchestrates the murder plot, yet maintains only determination to continue. She sheds the mantle of the stereotypically submissive and innocent wife whose role is restricted to mainly observing her husband’s exploits, and takes on the role of a controlling and ruthless mastermind in arranging an elaborate plot to dethrone Duncan and install Macbeth as king. Ultimately, she is to blame for the murder because, while Macbeth does physically murder the king, it is she who orchestrates the murder and influences Macbeth to follow through with it. Lady Macbeth’s role as the mastermind behind King Duncan’s murder cements her responsibility for his death.
By Act V, Lady Macbeth’s guilt ultimately drives her mad, foreshadowing her death. She is found sleep walking, claiming she cannot wash the imaginary blood clean of her hands, saying, “Out damned spot” (5.1.32). The characters’ hallucinations of blood illustrate how gravely the guilt is affecting their minds. In conclusion, the image of blood in Shakespeare’s tragedy Macbeth is important in developing the plot. The image of blood is first used to represent bravery when the valiant captain dies, the meaning then changes to guilt after Macbeth murders the king, and finally the image of blood reflects changes in the characters’ minds as guilt consumes their thoughts.
In effect, Laertes evokes the distinction between honor and nature and the former’s influence over his decision to choose revenge over clemency. After an injured Hamlet wounds Laertes with the poisoned foil, Laertes laments that he is “justly killed” by his own “treachery.” (5.2.337). In blaming himself for his downfall, Laertes declares the justice of his death. Laertes possesses only a simple understanding of the immorality of murder because his honor, anger, and a lack of concern for his own damnation drives him to ultimately carry out the act. After Hamlet kills Claudius, Laertes states the justice in the king’s death and says, “mine and my father 's death come not upon thee, / Nor thine on me!” (5.2.359-63).
“There was enough left to enslave the whole world.” (page 259) with the perfume, the author purposefully left Grenouille enough perfume so that he could then have the choice. By giving Grenouille this choice but Grenouille deciding against it, the author shows- or rather proves his humanity. On one hand, Grenouille cannot be innocent and is far from humane because he is responsible for murdering innocent girls for his own pleasure. The author also shows that he is guilty of this because after Grenouille murders the first girl, right after he says “he could no longer recall how the girl from the rue des Marais had
David Biello states that “leaks from badly cased wells contaminated drinking water wells—and one even exploded” which shows that when things are not done properly problems can occur (Scientific American). Since fracking fluid is made up of a high percentage of water, contains many harmful chemicals, and this creates
This quote is, without a doubt, descriptive and I really enjoyed this quote because of that. It obvious throughout the whole novel, Sinclair’s objective was to disgust his readers whilst informing them of the unsanitary conditions the cities had to offer to poor immigrants. Specifically with this quote, Sinclair captured the filth and unbearableness of Packingtown. Packington was filled with “hot rivers of blood”- the animal blood was drained into the river, and that the cargo “smelt like the craters of hell”. Sinclair continued to describe the awful bathroom conditions and the untidy laundry.
11) All of the diseases that can come from the bad water and air are all factors that lead to the short life expectancies. Even if people are not necessarily working in the factories, they are still very open inhaling and consuming all of the waste coming from them. So this affected
Macbeth considers himself a sinner,“Will all great Neptune’s ocean wash...”(II.ii.58-59) and the inability to say “ Amen...”(Shakespeare II.II.24). Moreover, following Banquo’s murder, Macbeth’s guilt is revealed through visual hallucinations of Banquo’s ghost. Furthermore, when Macbeth hears of his wife’s death, Macbeth believes life is meaningless and is nothing “but a walking shadow...” (Shakespeare V.v.24-28). To summarize, the desire for power and murderous deeds leads to Macbeth’s immense guilt, ultimately leading to his mental decline. In conclusion, Macbeth desire for power leads him to the wrong path and brings him to the mental deterioration stages.
She thinks the world is bleak and cold. Once Okonkwo gets banished to the other village, he falls into a bout depression that is mainly fueled by anger. “Whether you are spirit or man, may Agbala shave your head with a blunt razor! May he twist your neck until you see your heels!” (Achebe, 85) This quote shows how Okonkwo handled his depression almost opposite as Melinda, acting out and threatening people. He was feared in the new village.
