These two men, Perry Smith and Dick Hickock, showed this family no remorse whatsoever that resulted in killings of Herbert, Bonnie, Nancy, and Kenyon Clutter. They had it all planned out I'm sure... go in, tie them up, find the money, and then take off. Flee the city or hell even the state. The killers were under the impression that there was a safe in the house and when they realized that it was not, they could have left. Nobody had to die that day, especially in a brutal way like
In The Outsiders, after Johnny had killed Bob, Ponyboy and Johnny had to go on the run because they didn’t want to be caught, but Johnny says later on that he doesn’t want Ponyboy to have to live this life, and he is willing to turn himself into the police. Johnny couldn’t gain anything from this, and is willing to sacrifice the rest of his life because he doesn’t think it’s fair that Ponyboy has to live his life in hiding and away from his family. In the text, it says, “Johnny nodded. ‘I 'm sure. It ain 't fair for Ponyboy to have to stay up in that church with Darry and Soda worryin ' about him all the time.’”
But it is clear the man’s logic is twisted; Abner Snopes provoked all incidents by himself to create a reason to excuse his desire for fires. The final scenes of the story suggest the justice was served, as the man was caught during his final crime. But this is also a complex situation, as other family members, who did not support Abner’s position directly, did not experience the improvement in their living conditions and even could be hurt or killed. The story starts with the description of a trial, where Abner Snopes was accused in burning of his neighbor’s barn.
Golding uses a group of boys to show that even in, children, the thing society sees as the most innocent can still become corrupted by an environment full of evil. Golding creates the character, Jack, the tough hunter but it takes Jack a little while to completely take on this role. In the quote, “‘I was going to,’ said Jack. He was ahead of them, and they could not see his face” (Golding 31), Readers can see Jack fail to kill a pig, Jack makes excuses as to why he did not kill it, however the reader can infer Jack did not have the heart to kill it because of his morals. Jack still has his initial innocence but later Golding shows how Jack will break his morals.
When Julia hands him the note saying “I love you”, he states, “the desire to live had welled up inside him, and the taking of minor risks suddenly seemed stupid” (2.1.109). Winston is no longer interested in his previously small acts of rebellion. He wants to deepen his actions and carry out a force much greater than simply writing in a journal. Winston enjoys the fact that he’s becoming a rebel, and takes great pride in the fact that he is
Try as you may fear will still find you now matter how fast you run. King definitely accentuates this point and establishes the debilitating effect that it has wrought upon the lives of the Losers Club as they spiral back into the pit of despair they had all just finished crawling out of. In seeing this the reader is left there, just as helpless as the poor souls being tormented by the demonic Pennywise. This is a novel that has had a heightened effect on me. Not only has it enthralled me in the mythos of Stephen King, it has also scared me, something I had not thought possible in a
During the Romantic era, Mary Shelley wrote one of her famous book called Frankenstein, which became respected literature of Romantic era. Even though Frankenstein was created mainly to emphasize horror, it rather developed different point of views; it captured many audiences who sought for ideas of science and nature.

To make the story as much as smooth as possible without any disbeliefs, Mary Shelley incorporated science and morality in order to enhance her story to be easily absorbed and felt.
It is very ironic because while at the Front, all the men were discussing on what they are planning to do once the get home, but reality is nothing will ever be the same, wherever they go. Paul was the first to exhibit that loss of hope. I agree with the main thesis of this book that war is uncalled for, it is just a game that ruins innocent lives of the young population while the nations that they are fighting for are using them as toys, all just politics. The main thesis of this book is so easily shut down, but all it is is the truth, unfortunately wars are gruesome, gory, and
As a matter of fact, he is loyal to him because he starts primitive training with him until he is as good of an assassin as his dad was, but when he finds out that his dad did not work for Scorpia he turned his back on all of Scorpia. In contrast, another theme is disloyalty towards others, for example, Alex is disloyal to Julia Rothman when he wears the retainer in his mouth that has a tracking device in it. He wanted to do this in case he got in trouble, he would start the tracker, so m16 could come help him. Moreover, this contributes to the theme of disloyalty by showing that Alex no longer wanted to be a part of Scorpia. Alex no longer wants to be a part of Scorpia because he has found out that they actually killed his dad.
In the article, “Thresholds of Violence” by Malcolm Gladwell first quote proclaim ‘Most did not think it ‘right’ to commit illegal acts’ (7).

The point when any class shooting happens, thus he functioned as every last one of mistakes produced by them and attempting will submit it once more with a mistake a greater amount effectiveness also most importantly getting out alive.
First and foremost, his neighbor heard the man scream, “I’m going to kill you!” How does one argue against that? He stated his intent, and he ended up killing his father with a knife he bought the night of. That is no coincidence, it was purposeful and planned like a predator catching its prey. Although it may have been planned, which you can see from the lack of fingerprints on the switch knife, the boy might have grown nervous at the idea of committing murder, causing him to do such a sloppy cut despite his expertise.
