Furthermore, Victor is not only responsible for the deaths of Justine and William, but also responsible for the pain their deaths have caused his family. Elizabeth is understandably one who is harder hit by these occurrences because she viewed Justine as her sister and felt betrayed by her for murdering another person Elizabeth loved. While Victor knows for a fact that Justine is not the one who murdered his younger brother, he also has no way to prove that it was not her. Evidence points to her and Victor knows that no one would believe him if he told his story, and so decides to remain silent. As such, Victor achieves his goal of reanimation but makes himself responsible for two murders and much pain in the
The same girl he did work for every day started a trial against him saying he raped her. Her claim should have been disproven in many ways, there was enough evidence to contradict it but the jury is so racist they look right past it. Tom was found guilty and sent to Enfield Prison Farm waiting for an appeal even though he shouldn’t have been there in the first place. Finally, as Tom was in that prison he got sick and tired of waiting for an appeal so he made a run for it, and was shot 17 times to be stopped. This ends up killing him and once the news makes it to the town it just rolls off their shoulders.
This is because almost nobody wished to obey The Council, certainly not twice. Lark Hill is a private building for political prisoners. V was at Lark Hill to be exterminated, likely for knowing too much about the government. There is a huge fire and almost everyone dies, except V and Delia. V targets Delia later on in the movie for torturing V at Lark
Also, there was no evidence that shows the two even knew each other before the trials happened (Beatrice). Going back to the play two of the main reasons Proctor is accused or brought to attention in the court was because of the affair, and on how outspoken he was about the girls being frauds. We know already that the affair is not true, but being outspoken was nothing new for John. After John beat his servant Mary Warren and dragged her to the court, to tell the truth, she turned against him and accused him of being the man with the devil's book (Beatrice). Shortly after that, John was hanged (Beatrice).
Necrophilia is not something someone who was first class would do. Everyone in the town thought of Emily has a wonderful person. Some people even described her as, “a tradition, a duty and a care.” (#) The town admired her wealth and her social status. After the civil war, there is still a lot of racism. When Emily’s body was found dead, her servant for someone who is visiting and as soon as he realizes she is dead he “walk[s] through the house and out the back and [is] never seen again.” To him he thinks that the town is going to blame him for Emily’s death even if he didn’t do it.
A series of unfortunate events, is what led to Blanche Dubois’ downfall. Blanche’s actions in response to her husband’s suicide and losing her house caused her to be viewed as a pretentious prostitute in the town she lived in. Blanche tries to start a new life in New Orleans but is never able to get away from her terrible past and only keeps encountering problems. Blanche Dubois’ downfall was caused by her husband 's suicide, losing her house and job, and finally when Stanley exposes her. One of the main reasons that led to Blanche’s downfall was due to her husband’s suicide.
The reader have to read between the lines if he wants to know why did she stay alone, why did not she like any changes or why did she kill her sweetheart. The narrator, it seems it is the town or more precisely people in the town, watch Emily´s life from a distance from the outside world. Her life is not visible for the outside people except her loyal servant. The narrator is not allowed to come to her closer. As a consequence of many events Emily became some kind of an icon in this small town.
Faulkner’s story demonstrates totally different plot: there is an own main character, her mental disorder and its consequences for the society. In the case of Emily Grierson the problem appeared to be in the inherited disorder, as “people in our town, remembering how old lady Wyatt, her great-aunt, had gone completely crazy at last” (Faulkner 4); and the citizens’ attitude. Miss Emily felt a pressure from people because of own origins and behavior; and these conditions finally made her to kill Homer Barron, an only potential opportunity for marriage after her father’s death. After the crime Miss Emily was not able to get rid of the body and continued to live with it until her own death. It looked like Baron became the only victim of the character’s madness here.
Most of the accused confessed to the crime of witchcraft out of the fear of being hanged. It is also because of this fear that they accused others in order to cement their “innocence.” The dark force of fear is what caused most of the “snowballing” effect from the accusations. Some townspeople accused others of “sending their spirit out to murder or harm them or their family.” An example of this is Mrs. Putnam accusing Rebecca Nurse of bewitching and later killing all but one of her newborn children. This was the dark force of misinformation and lack of information. People back then had little to no idea about the many different kinds of illnesses that would have been afflicting them during those simple
For example, the narrator states that Miss Emily went to a drug store with the intent to buy arsenic, though she did not specify to the druggist why she wanted it (35). This is significant because it was later revealed how Emily had murdered Homer. It is implied she murdered him with this arsenic, which means this event foreshadowed the murder of Homer. In addition, the story also foreshadows how Miss Emily would eventually lose her mind. For example, the narrator states that, “People in our town, remembering how old lady Wyatt, her great-aunt, had gone completely crazy at last, believed that the Grierson’s held themselves a little too high for what they were” (34).
They had persuaded the jury to believe that George Zimmerman had killed Trayvon believing he was a danger to himself or others. 19 year-old Rachel Jeantel was the last person to speak to Trayvon. They believed that the witness was “Ghetto Trash.” The prosecution did not get the jury to believe that the case was a murder. George Zimmerman was not guilty and created many angry protesters. He won by the sole witness of the case.
It’s scary how fear can take the place of everything else in someone’s mind, even a person’s sense of judgement. Fear changed the life of a former SEAL trainee. Dustin Turner, (also known as Dusty) and Billy Joe Brown were accused and convicted of murdering Jennifer Evans in Virginia on June 19, 1995 at a nightclub. Many people see this tragic night differently, but the truth is, only those three-people witnessed this and only two are alive to tell their stories. Sadly, two people aren’t always going to have one same situation.
The next day Mr. Dimmesdale was assassinated and the culprit was yet to be discovered. The townspeople assumed that it was Hester due to the circle around the A in the word Catholic. The townspeople felt that it was a hate crime and felt that Hester was becoming rebellious against their religious beliefs. Hester then was sentenced to prison without any actual evidence besides the Bible. Hester looked around the courtroom and felt a chill go down her spinal cord.
As pages went by, the entries became even darker than they had already been. After years of leading a lonely life, she had done something unforgivable in the eyes of the citizens of Maycomb: she had seeked the touch of a black man. To cover up her actions, she testified against Tom Robinson and accused him of raping her. But even after she had won the case, Mayella had become overridden with guilt, especially after Tom had been shot by some townspeople. To add on to her situation, her father had been found dead, seeming to have killed himself.
For me, Justine is the biggest victim so far. Considering her background and the hardship she went through at an early age and being neglected by her family was indeed a tragic scenario; even though she felt love and comfort in the Frankenstein 's home. What 's really sad was when she was accused of killing William and was executed. Apparently, Victor knew his brother was killed by the monster, yet still he couldn 't do anything to save the girl 's life because he was scared and don 't want people to know he had created an awful
