While Beowulf is describing his lineage he states, “what dark doer of hateful deeds in the black nights, shows in terrible manner strange malice, injury and slaughter.” Beowulf hears of Grendel's wrath and prepared himself and his thanes to fight instead of backing up and allowing the Danes to continue suffering. Finally Grendel is confident because he wants to fight Grendel without any weapons or armour, he does this because he hears that Grendel doesn't use any weapons so he won't either. This is shown in the text when Beowulf says, “I scorn to bear sword or broad shield, yellow wood, to the battle, but with my grasp I shall grapple with the enemy and fight for life, foe against foe.” Beowulf wants to defeat Grendel with his own
But his whole life was dominated by fear, the fear of failure and of weakness. It was deeper and more intimate than the fear of evil and capricious gods and of magic, the fear of the forest, and of nature, malevolent, red in tooth and claw (Achebe 13). Okonkwo’s fear of failure serves as an indicator that he would stop at nothing to succeed in his beliefs. Similarly, Okonkwo’s accepts his faith as a priority to success. Therefore, when the white settlers arrive in Umoufia, Okonkwo is not able to comprehend the massive changes that they bring along.
Victor is quick to point fingers upon his creation, and is hesitant to realize that he is inherently responsible for the deaths his creation has caused. He bears more responsibility than the monster due to the fact that he abandoned his creation without giving any thoughts to the consequences. When he left his creation to fend for himself, it faced great adversity due to its outwardly appearance and lack of social skills. This abandonment caused him to grow resentful and violent. After the monster is abandoned for a second time he proclaims “I declared everlasting war against the species and more than all, against him who had formed me” (Shelley 121) and says “my feelings were those of rage and revenge.”

Macduff reveals that he was not woman of born, but from his mother's womb.
A necessity to ensure an ideal and functional community, as demonstrated in George Orwell 's 1945 novel Animal Farm, is the ability to detect and prevent corrupt conduct, read, and the will to challenge authority, which the animals do not possess, therefore putting them at major fault. One of the main factors that leads to the downfall of the farm and Animalism itself is the blatant stupidity that the animals, excluding the pigs, possess. They are overly dense to the point where the concept of corruption is near unfathomable, and thus cannot detect it or act upon their suspicions. Their willingness to believe Squealer 's persuasive speeches whenever doubt arises indicate that the animals are unable to think for themselves. “The other animals understood how to vote, but could never think of any resolutions of their own” (Orwell 19).
