Dante also witnesses many promiscuous souls being forever pursued by hounds. The innermost ring is a burning desert where fire falls from the sky, raining down upon blasphemers and sodomites. The Eighth Circle of Hell is filled with fraudulent false prophets and the like. All those who practice false magic, business, etc. The last Circle of Hell is divided into 4 sections by seriousness of their traitorous sin however all punished are frozen in an icy lake.
At the end of this scene, the immense evil represented by this powerful symbol can once again be seen as Simon faints after looking into the wide mouth of the pig and seeing "blackness within, a blackness that spread" (p. 144). Meaning that everyone has lost control with power and themselves turning into
The drunk, disrespectful Miller has a mind that is consumed by sexual desire, whether it is appropriate or not. He is a dishonest man who looks for ways to cheat others out of money and materials solely to benefit himself. After stealing corn from his customers, he charges them three times the price he truly deserves. Of all the tales in Chaucer’s novel, the Miller’s is unquestionably the most vile, due to the author’s focus on infidelity, tricks, and revenge. As he tells his story, the Miller is passive-aggressive and spiteful, specifically toward the Reeve, showing his disrespectful personality.
He is banished to the swamp lands and seemingly longs for acceptance and is jealous of the society he cannot be a part of. Grendel is extremely vile and evil, described in the poem as that demon, that fiend, Grendel, who haunted the moors, the wild Marshes, and made his home in a hell not hell but earth. (16-19)He has no remorse for the crimes he commits and takes joy in committing even more crimes with no peace, offering No truce, accepting no settlement, no price in gold or land, and paying the living for one crime only with another. (69-72)He simply kills because he
Jack starts to develop this obsession with hunting and murdering a pig in chapter 3, “ At the length he let out his breath in long sigh and opened his eyes. They were bright blue, eyes that in this frustration seemed bolting and nearly mad” (48). However, his obsession with hunting is shown as early as chapter 2, “ But if there was a snake we’d hunt and kill it. We’re going to hunt pigs to get meat for everybody” (36).
Gluttony is the sin in which a person will endlessly consume food, items, people, for their benefit, and without regards to other people's malnourishment. Within this circle the Gluttons are tortured by laying down in a slimy mud, while being pelted by dirty hail or rain which is then soaked up by the mud, and they must eat the mud in order to gain nourishment. As they gain nourishment, Cerberus, the three headed dog that watches over them, will eat them. I can see how this is a fitting punishment for those who were glutinous because they are being forced to eat something disgusting rather than anything delicious. They are technically eating the food that others must eat due to their gluttonous ways.
Mournful once more but this time not only for himself, the Monster shares these words, “The fallen angel becomes a malignant devil. Yet even that enemy of God and man had friends and associates in his desolation; I am alone.” Gut wrenchingly stated, it is upon these words that Monster reaches complete solitude now that his potential mate and creator have been destroyed. Through the motif of solitude, the Monster has transformed into an
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
4th period “You don’t deserve a point of view if the only thing you see is you” (Unknown). In the lord of flies by William Golding, Jack turns evil and is not himself. A former choirmaster and “head boy” at his school, he arrived on the island having experienced some success in exerting control over others by dominating the choir with his militaristic attitude. His main interest is hunting, an endeavor that begins with the desire for meat and builds to the overwhelming urge to master and kill other living creatures.

For example, lines fifteenth through sixteenth, lines twenty one through twenty two, and lines 111 through 114 are some examples how the Pope points of the flaws. In the lines fifteenth through sixteenth he is criticizing the people who gossip, or talk about others. In the lines twenty one through twenty two he criticizes the people who are gluttony, or people who always want to eat/ are always hungry.
