The physical pain he suffered could be solved over time, but the mental damage will always stay with him. I cannot tell you how many times Perry was threatened with death. One major example of this is on page 166, “folks dangled a noose near the Vanderbilt bench, pretending they were threatening to hang Wallace”. This is really bad because they were threatening to kill him in one of the most painful ways, breaking his neck and then suffocation. Also on page 166, it states that his teammates ignored everything going on.
You’ve never moped at home on a Friday night and wished you could go to the movies with your “American” friends. You’ve never tried to translate to both “Americans” and “Khmers” because you’ve never experienced people mimic you.” (Im, “To the Lady that Thinks She Knows”). Mary Im is criticizing Americans for their assumptions about an individual’s culture without having experienced it. Im goes on to utter how Americans never experienced having to translate between native and foreign language because somebody mimicked them. Mary Im also states “You’ve never seen your grandma sit behind a sewing machine and work her ass off to pay for shelter, food, clothing, and luxury things for her grandkids on the other side of the world, living with strangers.” (Im, “To the Lady that Thinks She Knows).
Because the group of boys don’t understand fear, they sadly rip Simon up thinking he was the beast. Simon’s wisdom of the truth can also be compared to Jesus ' knowledge about the true Beast. Like Simon, Jesus also went on a journey and was challenged by the devil. Jesus went 40 days in a desert with no food or water, and when he came back he later died in an inhuman way. People are sometimes unable to face and believe the truth.
He calls on the “spirits of the dead” and “wandering ministers” so that the “cursed and hellish monster drink deep of agony” and feel “the despair that now torments me”(179). The monster is also capable of wanton destruction when he burns down the DeLaceys’ house and dances “with fury around the devoted cottage”(123) like a savage. Finally, the monster seems to enjoy the pain he causes Frankenstein: “your sufferings will satisfy my everlasting hatred” (181) he writes to Victor. Were these pieces of evidence taken out of context, the reader would surely side with Frankenstein. But Shelley prevents such one-sidedness by letting the monster tell his version of the story.
Dying with their sins seems to be the greatest fear the townspeople have and Hawthorne describes it as, “Dying sinners cried aloud for Mr. Hopper, and would not yield their breath till he appeared”(10). It is a great vulnerability to bare their deepest mistakes to someone who sees all and judges them for the rest of eternity. “The black veil involved his own spirit in the horror with which it overwhelmed all others”(6) the minister had seen his reflection in a glass cup, reminded of the horrible sin the veil represent for him. He quickly runs, the fear of the known chasing him and taunting him by hanging in front of his face, ever so reminding that he shall die with it.
Comparison can be made between Ahab and the monster in Frankenstein on the basis of revenge that the monster wanted to take from Victor. Victor lost all the power over his creation when the monster killed William. Frankenstein immediately felt responsible for the crime because he never made his creation to go around and kill people. After destroying the work of second creature, the monster threaten Victor saying that, “Remember that I have power; you believe yourself miserable, but I can make you so wretched that the light of day will be hateful to you. You are my creator, but I am your master;—obey!” (Shelly, 192).
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.
At this point in the book the inherent violence that has been building up through the whole story because of anger and fear takes over and they kill Simon. This shows how humans are inherently violent and without rules in place violence creates a society so defective that it drives people to kill their friends. Another example of violence creating a dysfunctional society in Lord of the Flies is when Jack and the hunters let the fire out to go kill their first pig. “I cut the pig’s throat,” said Jack, proudly, and yet twitched as he said it. “Can I borrow yours, Ralph, to make a nick in the hilt?” The boys chattered and danced.
The huge m9onster got stabbed 3 times and even cut his arm and still wont die. So Gilgamesh stood there for a couple second to thing where is the good place so he can die. He said, “ HEART “ The monster got him off guard and hit him twice and Gilgamesh started to get dizzy, and weak and BANG he was there laying down on the floor. The monster noticed him there and was walking forward to him. Gilgamesh was on his world already looking on the heaven, he started thinking about his people, the people he saved and the ones who love him, and he remembers he promised this little girl he’ll be back and save the land.
Down in the catacombs, Montresor is teasing Fortunato. Then Montresor is starting to put the wall up with Fortunato in it alive, “I had finished a portion of the last and the eleventh ; there remained, but a single stone to be fitted and plastered in. I struggled with its weight ; I place it partially in its destined position.” (page 4) Montresor was killing Fortunato alive, by putting him in the wall and covering it up so that no one will be able to find him. He wanted him to suffer and die a long, slowly death. Another time Montresor showed relentlessness was when he said his heart grew sick.
I swallow and Mykel chokes on his breath. “I think I missed a spot. Here, let me try again.” Mykel bursts into more tears, until he is reduced to a blubbering mess on the floor. Corruption or not, I stand up and launch myself towards them, absolutely no idea how i’ll somehow get us out of this. The man throws the machete at me, missing me by half an inch, and landing it into a skull resting behind me.
He ripped the dagger clean out of his flesh and swung it wildly at the ugly, fat man. After some “friendly discussions” between Jag, the Captain and the floor board with an odd Jag shaped dent, Jag would come to “accept” the terms of living on the ship, the S.S. Crestfalls. Time would pass, month would turn into years and Jag slowly grew under the watchful eyes of Lightfang. Though these memories are just a mixed of hard work, getting the living shit kicked out of him and more hard work, there are some fond memories of Lightfang. These came in the form of the stories that Lightfang would tell.
Quiet Kill He was astounded at how far the ripples of the past had extended into the present and at how Coz remained consistently inconsistent. In one last desperate attempt, to topple the barrel and at righting the ship, Wormwood yelled, “First of all, I’ve been called worse things by better people. Second, first chance I get, gonna cut your guts out then slice your throat. You think I’m joking, just you wait. If I were you, I’d sleep with one eye open jack.” It was obvious losing was a crushing, devastating blow.
The significance of war in John Wade’s life, has deformed his present state of mind and diluted the clarity of his daily thoughts and actions. The horrific events he experienced caused a terminal disease, as evident by his spastic fits of yelling “Kill Jesus”, running in-and-out of the bedroom he shares with Kathy, kicking and screaming as if he was possessed by a devil, and his unstoppable quest to end any life in his presence. John decides to acheive this by killing all plants in his home. As he waits for the pot to boil, he imagines himself, “kicking and gouging. He’d go for the eyes.
They were not of a fire being prepared and sweat, but instead the smell of death and blood. The Signless, the most important troll in history for this moment and until his foretold death but not a moment longer, had been staring into the shadows of secrets, horrors, death and blood since some nameless blue blood had been given the honor of propping him to the jutting block. Would that he could he’d have looked somewhere beside the shadow cast by the ever growing crowd, but he could not. He did not have the courage or strength to lift his eyes and see just how much his destined failure had cost him.
