The ineffective crucifixion and attempt at martyrdom are evidence of his great failure. Simon's act of cutting the parachutist free leads to the corpse resembling the beast in flight. The body then travels deep into the ocean while simultaneously driving the idea of the “beast” deeper into the mind of the boys. Simon also brings out the most primitive side of the boys while they commit murder for the first time. The boys will kill a human on the island again, and will continue to show how Simon was unsuccessful at being a Christ figure on the
JOhnny and Ponyboy lay and watch the stars. He obviously falls asleep and makes it home past his curfew.

He tossed his own clothing into the river and watched it swept away” (133). Montag becomes a different person after finally wading into the river because it washes away his old life, letting him start a new one. Living without technology allows the men to think for themselves and set goals too. Granger states,“‘Every man must leave something behind when he dies’” (149). Though a simple statement, it causes Montag to regret the awful burnings and do something that he will be remembered for.
Hell, no!” (Steinbeck 236). This quote shows how these men do not know that the migrants have no choice but to live the way they do, that they were forced from their homes and live on the roads, with no work and no food. The Californians have made an assumption. Assumptions are based on little truth. A character named Jack in The Tortilla Curtain says “No education.
Through the media, Injun Joe was portrayed as a barbaric savage. Being a fugitive, having only a sixth or seventh grade education, and not even being able to write or read made it easy to conclude that he was an uncivilized “other” that was not a member of our society. A society that requires civil behavior and literate skills in order to function properly. In this society that we live in today it is common to believe that one who cannot read or write has no literacy at all, but I have mixed feelings about that. On one hand, I agree that Injun Joe not being able to read or write makes him illiterate in our society, however, I still believe that there are other kinds of literacies on a broader spectrum that Joe might possess.
In Beowulf, he swims out to open sea with a friend stating, “I swam in the blackness of the night, hunting monsters of the ocean, and killing them one by one; death was my errand and the fate they had earned” (251). Swimming out to sea to hunt monsters is undeniably considered moving out of conventional safety to undertake a journey. Beowulf’s achievement comes from, “I drove five great monsters into chains, chased all of the race from earth” (250). This is an accomplishment because Beowulf has taken away their capability to sabotage the earth, possibly saving many human lives. Beowulf proves through his entire life that he has all of the characteristics of a hero.
Just like Ahab from Moby Dick was obsessed with capturing a white whale, Doug has an extremely strong desire to annihilate Ralph from existence. This is insane, for reason that time should have faded away some, if not all, of his desire to kill Ralph; as can be seen, Doug is still vindictive, in addition to being irrational, for keeping his grudge. When Doug gets off the train, he walks through Green Town, his childhood neighborhood, to enjoy the last golden rays of sunshine. In his plan to kill Ralph, Doug believes he should “kill [and] depart, a stranger among strangers” when he finally arrives at Ralph’s house (Bradbury 22). He also wants to savor his childhood bully’s death because back then he “didn’t know how to give up the vomit that was my miserable ghost” (Bradbury 21).
Furthermore, an outsider is a character that is set apart from the established cultural pattern. The most character that was an outsider was Franky, Bernice, and the soldier. Therefore, Franky didn’t feel like she wasn’t part of any club “we”. Bernice is part of the family, but again she’s not part of the family because if they ever move or go somewhere out of the town she can’t go. The soldier didn’t know anybody when he came back in town and he felt unnoticeable because nobody said anything to him at all.
One example is when the monster is just starting to get a feel of the world he is living in, and he just feels lost “And what was I? Of my creation and creator I was absolutely ignorant, but I knew that I possessed no money, no friends, no kind of property. The moster is feeling completely uncomfortable in his own skin and has no conception on who he is. He has nothing to hold onto because he is just there with nothing valuable to him, he doesnt have anything. The monster is observing who he is so he does not feel comepletely unrecognizable to himeself “These thoughts exhilarated me and led me to apply with fresh ardour to the acquiring the art of language.
She ends up on the beach where she is shown calling her father and giving him a heartfelt goodbye. She is next seen lying dead on the beach with her right leg in a very gruesome position, the foot being bent forwards until it ripped from the kneecap. The audience is treated to a lovely view of blood and bones. While there are at least two more deaths in the film, Greg and the creatures, there are not as gruesome or as shocking as Annie’s. Much of the film consist of an endless danger to the main character Jay.
Victor says that he will not continue creating the she-devil and that the monster must leave. The wretch does leave but before doing so he tells Victor, “I shall be with you on your wedding night” Victor thinks this means that the monster will kill him on the night of his wedding. Victor leaves the island the next day in a small boat and disposes of the she-monster’s body in the ocean. He falls asleep in the boat and wakes up the next morning far away from the shore. When he makes landfall he is apprehended by citizens because there was a murder the previous night and a man on a small boat, much like Victor’s, was seen leaving the island.
