In order to be believable for readers, the insults must be very painful for Montresor, so it urges him to commit such a crime. “The Cask of Amontillado” is missing an important element of Montresor’s motivation to punish Fortunato by burying him alive. Montresor neglects to explain how Fortunato insults him as the story lays the foundation at the opening paragraph, “The thousand injuries of Fortunato I had borne as I best could, but when he ventured upon insult I vowed revenge.” (Poe 866); however, no evidence to be found in the story to support Montresor’s claim.
He loses the ability to determine cause and effect of what is happening around him due to his actions, therefore he subjects himself to complete moral insensitivity to the point that he still attempts to justify himself to the agents of law (Gargano, p.178). Murder of the innocent Pluto becomes the event from which there is no recovery. If he kills a pet whom he used to love greatly, killing his wife becomes just matter of time when he experiences yet another mood swing, yet another instance of alcohol
In the play, Hamlet, by William Shakespeare, the author claims that revenge and madness are related because the need for revenge can cause one to go insane trying to get their revenge. This comparison comes up when Hamlet kills Polonius, Ophelia goes insane, and when Laertes attempts to do anything to avenge his father and Ophelia. Shakespeare’s claims that madness and revenge are related are not true today because people generally get revenge through the legal system, and rarely have issues as large as those in Hamlet where they would feel such a strong need for revenge. These modern comparisons show up in workplace revenge, the people who generally seek revenge, and the effect revenge has on people.

“A lad whose face had borne an expression of exalted courage…was, at an instant, smitten abject…he saw the fleeting forms…Directly he began to speed toward the rear in great leaps.” (Crane 75-76). During his second battle Henry was tired and unlike the first battle he did not fall into the “battle sleep” where the fighting became automatic for him. Instead Henry was afraid and since he had not yet found courage he saw the other soldiers fleeing and so he fled himself. At first Henry believed that to obtain courage you needed to be wounded and after he fled without a wound he believed everybody would see him for the coward he was.
“He didn’t know what to say, and he was afraid to reveal himself to be any more monstrous than his actions had made him out to be… Ender couldn’t help it, he was too afraid, too ashamed of his own acts; though he tried not to, he cried again.” (19) Ender is immensely terrified of becoming a monster; his remorse and shame caused by his horrific actions increases his fear. However, his guilt-enforced tears show that even though his actions were callous, Ender’s possession of kindness is unscathed. The humanity Ender shows through the tears he failed to stop is what prevents his worse nightmare from coming true.

He had rid himself of the red sickness of , battle” (232).
