Simon is brutally murdered by the boys, having been confused for the beast. This expression of savagery depicts how fear will control the mind and express itself in an unimaginable manner.

Throughout the novel, V was involved in various instances where he enthusiastically chose to inflict pain and agony on certain characters. He tortured Prothero, a former a concentration camp leader, by “burning part of [his] doll collection” and leaving him mentally insane (33/4). V also killed Bishop Lilliman by forcing him to consume a "poisoned communion wafer,"(84/8). V’s cruel and unusual killing style brings an uncanny resemblance to the Joker. His "twisted devotion to chaos " immediately brings the face of the "clown prince of crime" to mind (Source C).
Working Title In her novel, To Kill a Mockingbird, Harper Lee exemplifies the theme of racism and how it impaired and blemished the citizens of Maycomb County. One figure that Lee uses to represent racism is the “mad dog,” Tim Johnson. When Tim went out of control and became absurd and perilous to Maycomb County, every character in the novel knew that something had to be done about it. Like Tim, racism can and will eventually get out of control. When Atticus shot and killed Tim, this portrays as if Atticus is killing racism as a whole.
People do crazy things, that could be completely out of their personality, when they are placed under the right set of circumstances. Every human will have a critical moment when they have a meltdown or decide to do something evil to the people around them if they are in a disastrous situation that has the right circumstances. This article can connect to Lord of the Flies because Jack became bloody thirsty always looking to kill an animal. Jack was placed under the right circumstance by being on the island without any adult supervision and food, and this caused him to act evil by killing the animals and always thinking about blood and
The Creature’s feelings of rejection from society and the abandonment from Victor compel him to use violence and seek revenge. In so, the Creature ends up killing a great many of people throughout the story, some of which include: Victor’s younger brother William, Justine Moritz, Victor’s close friend Henry Clerval, and Victor’s soon to be wife Elizabeth Lavenza. Many would say that the story of “Frankenstein” from the start sets out to make the creature seem to be naturally evil and a monstrosity of a thing which is directly the cause of its uncontrollable bloodthirstiness, but I believe this to not be the case. Although the Creature behaves viciously and murders several people, he is not inherently evil or malicious. It is because of the human relationships he endured and the consequences of a neglected psycho-social responsibility that drove him to do such
Lord of the Flies, a novel by William Golding, uses the pig’s head on a stick (Lord of the Flies) to symbolize the violent human nature that can be found buried in everyone, and how it can only be controlled if someone truly understands it. The Lord of the Flies itself stands as a symbol of the boys’ violent human nature. When this pig’s head is acquired, Jack’s tribe has already been separated. Their savage nature has already started to come out and by the time the sow is killed, their violence is in full swing. Golding uses imagery that makes the killing similar to a rape scene, such as when “Roger began to withdraw his spear and boys noticed it for the first time” and
Toward the ending, we see C. W. Pollard father to get mercy for his son he sets a trap for Bonnie and Clyde. In background we could hear the music which was giving a tense feeling that will something bad happen. Actually, it did happen, cruel deaths of Bonnie and Clyde. They got ambushed by the police and brutally assassinated by machine guns. I didn’t like this ending of the film because it was a lot of violence and it was really sad.

Grendel vs. “The monster” Grendel in the novel by John Gardner is very similar to “the monster” in Frankenstein by Mary Shelly because both Grendel and the monster feel like outsiders, they kill humans, and they both are able to learn new things. Grendel feels like an outsider because he knows he is different and he wants to know the truth of why he is what he is and why God made him that way. Grendel asks his mother “Why are we here?” which means that he is doubting his existence. Grendel kills humans in the mead hall while they are asleep. “Swiftly, softly, I will move from bed to bed and destroy them all, swallow every last man.” He kills them because he was affected by the shapers death.
