Mr. Putnam is extremely greedy, and accuses people of witchcraft so he can buy their land later. By only looking out for himself and his money, he’s constantly seeking revenge. To sum up, the characters in The Crucible have different reasons for plotting revenge. They embody spiteful people who think they deserve something, whether it be love, land, or a sense of justice. Even so, they don’t benefit from this.
Whereas, in The Cask of Amontillado, the reason behind the murder is revenge, “The thousand injuries of Fortunato I had borne as best I could; but when he ventured upon insult, I vowed revenge.” Additionally, Montressor’s jealousy is another reason because of which he murders Fortunato. The other difference noticed in the short stories, is that in both of the short stories the aftermath of the murder is different. In The Tell Tale Heart, in the near end of the story after the murder, the narrator feels very happy , and
Montag did was he thought was right according to him because Montag thought that he was protecting himself and Faber, killing him to give society a chance to change, and because Beatty did not want to live anymore. This could relate to our society now days with what our thoughts are with situations and decisions being morally right or wrong. People have different a different view and perspective on certain things but Montag’s view on this situation was that he needed to kill Beatty for many different
(Connell, 31)By stating this Connell shows Rainsford’s conflict with himself. Secondly, this also presents that Rainsford is incisive and clever in recognition towards what can be an obstacles in his survival. Moreover, going through many hardships at last Rainsford has reached his hunter, who is now his victim. Stated in the story, “I am still a beast at bay, he said in a low, hoarse voice. Get ready, General Zaroff.”
Is Montresor just a selfish evil genius fueled with revenge, or a good samaritan who wants to give the people the vengeance they deserve? It’s very clear to see why Montresor is the ultimate character of revenge; Montresor indicates that he is going to kill Fortunato, just for the sake of revenge, as seen in this quote, “… He [Fortunato] ventured upon insult, I [Montresor] vowed revenge” (Poe 61). The whole story is based upon the concept of revenge.
One who would read the story would tell you that the whole thing is about revenge and it can be looked at as revenge twists the mind of a person who is vengeful, to begin with, or as revenge is a driving force behind a person going so far as to commit a murder. Such a person might be so obsessed with vengeance that he imagines reasons to obtain it are the right doing. In this story, Montresor 's family prides itself on leaving no insult unavenged. Montresor 's obsession with this has perhaps made him imagine that Fortunato has insulted his family just so that he, Montresor, has something to try his family 's pride on. As when the narrator says ‘’THE thousand injuries of
Montresor states, “I continued , as was my in to smile in his face and he did not perceive that my smile now was at the thought of his immolation” (Poe 1). Montresor devises an intricate and well thought out plan to murder someone he considers a friend, he highlights the evil of humanity when the thought of killing Fortunato brings a smile to his face.
But he is the villian in the end. Agatha Chritie makes us feel like there is no villian at all. Judge Wargrave changes his personalty from the begging to the end. At first he seems nice,then he seems like the percfet hero,but at the need he is an evil person who wanted to kill people who were wrong and accidnet or purposaly killed other pople. The judge says in the book,I have wanted-let me admit it frankly-to commit a murder myslef.”
However, as Edmond carries out his plan he realizes he is not as he thought he would be. Innocent people (Madame de Villefort and her son) are killed as a result of his actions. He comes to the conclusion that revenge is dangerous and unfulfilling. Ultimately, revenge is dangerous and unfulfilling and can affect innocent people.
Rainsford said. “Slow down. I’m sorry about what happened, but we have even bigger problems now. There is another hunter who lives here. His name is General Zaroff.
Dangerous game/amontillado rough draft Imagine that you are stranded on an island. Now imagine meeting Zaroff, a psychotic madman who wants to hunt you down like an animal, and the only way off is to kill him. Compare that to being buried alive in a catacomb by your best friend Montresor3. Sounds like a fun time, right? Murder can be a powerful tool, life changing even, but why would people want to kill just for fun?
I am writing to tell you of a life changing event I have had. I do not believe I will ever be the same and I need to share this with you, my closest friend and hunting partner. As you have most likely realized, I fell off the boat after I stayed out to smoke and found myself stranded in the Caribbean Sea. I started swimming toward gunshot sounds and reached “Ship-Trap Island” where I came upon a mansion. I was greeted by a Cossack general named Zaroff, who treated me in a fine manner for quite a while, but it was a spurious act.
To begin with, I will be characterizing and analyzing the character Zaroff. Zaroff is meticulous and audacious. Additionally, he is meticulous in many different ways, when it comes to how he decorates his house he is especially meticulous. As Connell states, “There was a medieval magnificence about it; it suggested a baronial hall of feudal times with its oaken, panels,its high ceiling, its vast refectory tables. ”(44)
Unfortunate Fate in “The Cask of Amontillado” From the beginning of the of the story “The Cask of Amontillado” by Edgar Allan Poe, the narrator, Montresor, opens the story stating that the “thousand injuries” and irreparable insult caused by Fortunato won’t stay unpunished, and he seeks for revenge (Poe 467). Poe creates a sense of terror while he guides the audience to the unexpected revenge. The terror that Poe creates in the audience is only successful due to the use of literary elements. The use of symbolism, foreshadowing, and irony are essential to build the suspense that guides the reader throughout the story to a tragic ending.
