However, people can not die it will be another way to interpret. People does not care about their own rather the well-being of those around them. The travelers caused death by greed. In fact, they kill each other to obtain more provisions for themselves. The youngest traveler say, “Lord, to think I might have all that treasure to myself alone!”(Pg 149)
In the pardoner's tales, the moral is how greed can destroy people. Whereas the moral in “The Wife of Bath Tale” applies to rape. In “The Pardoner's Tale”, Chaucer explains,“ No longer was it death those fellows sought, For they were so thrilled to see the sight, the gold was so beautiful and bright” (171-174). “And with that poison he could kill his friends. To men in such a state the Devil sends Thoughts of this kind, and has a full permission To lure them on to sorrow and perdition; For this young man was utterly content To kill them both and never to repent” (246-251).
The discovery of this gold corrupted the rioters and led them to their death. This story is ironic because the reader expects them to end up with the gold but they all die in the end. After the story, the Pardoner says "Your horse may throw you down and break your neck" implying that you will die if you do not buy his relics. This is ironic because the Pardoner is being greedy just after he told a story about how greed will get you killed. These examples of irony in the Pardoner's tale serve to demonstrate specific moral lessons.
Greed instantly blinded the rioters from their original mission of justice, and “no longer was it Death those fellows sought.” (Chaucer 253) The fellows individually began to seek their own gain and larger share of the gold. One pardoner leaves, and the other two plots against the one.
By Chaucer saying “This these miscreants agreed to slay the third and youngest, as you heard me say. ” This is a key point in the story because what Geoffrey Chaucer is trying to say is that money is the root of all evil because it caused three friends to end each other’s lives. The final topic is greed, it plays a role in both tales in how the characters valued their personal desires over the well beings of themselves and others.
Her initial manipulation attempts are unsuccessful, but Marie continues: “She harassed and bedeviled him so, / that he had no choice but to tell her” (lines 87-88). The use of “harassed and bedeviled” instantly casts his wife’s insistence as suspicious and malicious. Marie confirms the suspicions when the wife schemes with a knight who loved her to get rid of Bisclavret. Even though “she’d never loved [the knight] at all,” the wife offers herself to him in return for stealing Bisclavret’s clothes (line 107). “So Bisclavret was betrayed, / ruined by his own wife” (line 125-126, emphasis added).
Don't Get Killed By Hate Hate is like a wild fire, it destroys so much and only dies out when there is nothing left to burn. Romeo, a Montague, and Juliet, a Capulet, are “star-crossed lovers” who get married in secret because there is a feud between their families (Act I, prologue, 6). After their marriage, they make a plan to off and because of this plan, six people die, including them. In William Shakespeare's play, Romeo and Juliet, by the use of foreshadowing, conflict, and character relationships, Shakespeare shows how he believes that hate always has a negative effect.
First and foremost, Lena leaving Joe for Spunk immediately sets the two men apart, further strengthening Spunk’s position as the ultimate male authority while also invoking imagery of Joe being a pathetic powerless man. Secondly, Joe’s acceptance of the situation and the public humiliation of getting his wife stolen puts him in a submissive position. Finally, when the townspeople work Joe up enough for him to stand up for himself and attempt to murder Spunk and claim his wife, he ends up getting killed. Unlike Spunk who is big and reeks of masculinity and authority, Joe hunches and twitches nervously, making him a weaker and submissive character. Moreso, using his masculine authority, Spunk is shown as a man who takes what he wants.
Abigail is a selfish and manipulative girl. Abigail Williams stirs up the entire town of Salem against many people, including Elizabeth and John Proctor, because of her selfish personal ambition to be John's next wife, as well as her treacherous lust for the power that she gains by accusing innocent people of witchcraft. When Abigail and John Proctor had their affair, Abigail told John “You loved me John Proctor, and whatever sin it is, you love me yet! , pity me, pity me!” Abigail hates that John
The reader is positioned to view her negatively as she uses her beauty as power to seduce the workers on the farm and make her husband jealous. The men often complain about her throughout the novel, calling her names that no woman would ever appreciate. Candy tells George and Lennie his honest opinion of Curley’s wife, “You know what I think?” George did not answer. “Well, I think Curley’s married…a tart.”
Living in a world where people are selfish and greedy can lead to trouble. In this story The Wife of Bath, a young man took advantage of a girl and raped her just so he can fulfill his needs as a man. Not knowing that she was a virgin (or did), had ruined the future that was set for her. She now can no longer marry a knight or someone in nobility. The outcome of this story would surely cause an uproar with modern day feminists; for he got rewarded a beautiful wife even though he raped a young woman.
Hate impacts society more than love because hate can affect people directly and indirectly. In Romeo and Juliet early on we learn that two families hate each other the Montagues and Capulets Romeo is a Montague and Juliet is a Capulet. Their families ancient grudge causes a downward spiral of death and sadness throughout the whole story and everybody is affected in a negative way because of the families grudge. In the story a young couple falls madly in love but their love is denied by multiple obstacles leading back to their families grudge. Romeo meets Juliet at a capulet party and they instantly fall in love not knowing each other is a part of their families rival.
In the play along with the movie The Crucible, John Proctor and Abigail Williams have interesting relationship bound by adultery and lies. Abigail becomes obsessed with John and will do anything to be with him. John quickly shuts down her fantasy ideas and tells her that what happened between them was a one-time thing that will never take place again and a mistake on his part. With this knowledge, she soon spends all her time plotting to get John all to herself and to make him fall in love with her, even if that means taking out John’s wife, Elizabeth. We see many examples of this forbidden relationship through their secret encounters and arguments in both examples of the story, still, there were more scenes of John and Abby alone in the movie than in the play.
The Crucible uses John Proctor as the tragic hero in the play to show the struggles of a tormented individual living in a paranoid society. The four qualities that are essential to be a tragic hero is that a character must be noble, the hero is pre-eminently great but not perfect, hero’s flaw would lead to his downfall and that the hero’s misfortune is not fully deserved. Proctor represents these traits because he is a noble farmer that is respected throughout the community and his flaws would lead to his downfall, even though he is wrongfully convicted for a crime he did not commit. His pride is also a factor that he cannot control leading to various conflicts. Proctor’s self inflicted wounds were evident at the beginning of the play when
Have you ever done something you should not have due to the fact that you were afraid? Similar to how when John Proctor was under pressure he screamed out that, “God is dead!” (Miller, 198). Or lie to keep yourself from getting in trouble? Like how Tituba did to save herself from being labeled as a witch by saying she saw Sarah Good with the Devil.
