Bloodlust is an uncontrollable desire to kill which is not morally acceptable. In Beowulf, Beowulf finally battles Grendel and defeats him, but demands vengeance. Although Grendel attempts to repent he is “He twisted in pain,/and the bleeding sinew deep in his shoulder/snapped, muscle and bone split/and broke” (389-91). Beowulf finally gets the chance to execute Grendel, but in this endeavor, he attempts to make him suffer as much as possible. He slowly tortures Grendel and even lets him go in the hopes he bleeds to death.
He figured out that they fear the beast because it exists within each of them. This shows the beast symbol has grown throughout the events to make us realize the depth of it. Where the symbol doesn’t end here as readers we know that the beast isn’t real. However, the Lord of the Flies turns out to be the beast. He symbolizes the evil and violence that potentially exists in the heart of every human.
Document 3 states, “They come out to them they seek out the artificers (artisans) among them and keep these, but the others, with the exception of those they wish to have as slaves, they kill with the axe….” (DOC 3). This shows as they did conquer this land, they did still spare the lives of some of their enemies. As stated previously, there are some that believe otherwise. People believe the Mongols are truly barbaric. They see all these deaths caused by them and find it horrible.
“[After the Magistrate] discovers his fear is justified, and thereafter, he is obsessed by the brutality of the Empire and the effects of torture, not only on the victims, but also on the torturers and on those who live in a society that allows torture” (Franklin 4).

One of the first instances of situational irony is when the “would be” kidnappers first carry little “Red Chief” off to their lair. The reader expects the kidnappers to be serious and smarter than they are in the story. They try to be serious but they just can’t control themselves. However, the kidnappers do not behave as the reader would expect, instead they act kind of scared of “Red Chief”. One time bill said that his shoulder was hurting but he
This is one of the moments Grendel realizes that these people believed he was a monster. The way they treated him affected his personality to be more aggressive and to put up a wall when it came to humans. He had, however, tried to “befriend the exile” on other occasions, but “they were treacherous and in the end [he] had to eat them” (Gardner 33). Grendel knew the appropriate way to interact with people because he had watched them all these years. He had learned from them the way he should react in certain situations and knew you had to be friendly in order to make friends, but in the end, not being able to communicate was the biggest
Another thing that stool out to me was how nonchalant Junot Diaz was when reacting to being robbed. His nonchalant reaction being that, “Everybody gets hit; no matter who you were; eventually it would be your turn”. These feelings of nonchalance later shifted into feels of being targeted by his neighborhood, mainly because he and his family were immigrants. And to pair with that logic, I was also surprised at how “ok” Junot Diaz was with robbing his friends’ home to get his money back. While it can be understandable to want what’s yours returned when it is taken from you, it is hard to imagine what he risked just to get his families money back.
Assef believed that rape would be more lasting than just another beating, and he was right. The rape changed many things after. He used fear to put himself at the top, making sure everyone was below him and they were looking up at him.

His parents were also victims of his dominating ways.
