The Lamb to the Slaughter is a mystery horror story by Roald Dahl. It is about a wife (Mary Maloney) murdering her drunk husband (Patrick Maloney) after he gives her short answers when she asks him questions.

Think back to when I told you there were things that can go wrong no matter what during lambing season. This was one of those times. It was about two years ago, there was an ewe that was struggling with birth, so we took her into the shed. When we went to get the lambs out my mom pulled her hand out after having no luck and everything followed. The ewe had a uterine prolapse during the middle of giving birth.
Mary Maloney, a responsible and loving housewife, had just heard that her husband wants to leave her. Upon hearing this news, she goes to the kitchen to cook him dinner even though Patrick, her husband, says not to. Mary grabs a lamb’s leg to cook, but instead of preparing it she decides to use it as a club against Patrick’s head. This blow to the head kills Mary’s would-be ex-husband, leaving her with an entirely new problem. Law enforcement must decide what degree this specific murder is.
Based on the descriptions of The Misfit, he symbolizes death; the author forces the entire family to face death because of the grandmother. Upon discussing Jesus, The Misfit conveys his moral fortitude with the proposal that “…He shouldn’t have [raised the dead] …He threw everything off balance…then it’s nothing for you to go away and follow Him, then if He didn’t, then it’s nothing for [enjoy your last minutes] …by killing someone…no pleasure but meanness (O’Connor 244). Unlike the grandmother, The Misfit, seems sure of his moral beliefs. While it is true that the misfit is a murderer, he maintains strong moral beliefs. The Misfit is certain that he does not follow Jesus Christ and his morals while the grandmother is uncertain of her morals.
The trigger incident of the story is when Patrick told Mary that he is going to leave her. Mary Kills him by smashing the frozen leg of the lab onto his head. The police officers start to eat up the leg of the lamb which Mary cooked, and that’s the climax. The most significant symbol of the story is the leg of the lamb. Lambs represent and are known to be innocent, meek, peaceful and pure.
In Medea, a surge of insanity purges her after she is betrayed by her husband Jason causing many cruel and harsh actions to follow from her. The ending result a murder scene. Is she really at blame for her actions and should she be punished? Believing that she is truly insane this would entail that she is completely innocent and therefore not to be punished. Thesis: Medea’s insanity which led her to killing her children suggests she let her emotions take control of her proving she is not at fault for her actions.
Here, again, her human and flawed side is shown by Euripides. Unlike that of Euripies, Seneca’s Medea is sent exile without her children and he presents her murder of children as the pure brutality to satisfy and strenghten her vengeance. Medea has that idea of killing her children when Jason refuses to allow her to take children with her and thus she realizes how much Jason loves them. So she thinks that his great love for his children can bring him great pain with their
