(p.41) He implores the furies to dive to the bottom of Avernus’ pool to bring up hellish poison for Tamburlaine. (p.46) His life becomes more odious to him “Than noisome parbreak of the Stygian snakes Which fills the nooks of hell with standing air.” (p.55) This kind of images, which appear frequently, especially during Act IV in which Bajazeth is brutally humiliated, emphasise the darker aspects of Tamburlaine’s character and actions.

They are divided into two groups – those who hoarded possessions and those who lavishly spent it – jousting. They use great weights as a weapon, pushing it with their chests which symbolizes their selfish drive for fortune during lifetime. The two groups that are guarded by a character called Pluto (probably the ancient Greek ruler of the underworld) are so occupied with their activity that the two poets don’t try to speak to them. Here, Dante says to see many clergymen including cardinals and popes. Fifth Circle (Anger) Anger The Fifth Circle of Hell is where the wrathful and sullen are punished for their sins.
Furthermore, the interplay of the kenning “hoard-guardian” and the verb “hunted” produces an intense tone that illustrates the dragon as powerful and crude. Hence, the crude tone in the dragon’s depiction demonstrates that it is considered barbaric by human judgment. After entering Heorot Hall, Grendel anticipates purging the men inside: “[Grendel’s] glee was demonic, / picturing the
Savagery is the cause of the word choice the author used in this chapter. The effect of the boys killing Simon caused William Golding to use sad words. In Chapter nine of the “Lord of the Flies”, William Golding utilize animal imagery, natural image, and diction to represent the theme of when you fear an object or a person it can regulate great savagery. Throughout chapter nine it describes the boys in the novel as being afraid of the beast. This causes them to kill one of their own.
Tybalt is an exceptionally mean and rageful person. This can be seen when he gets extremely mad at Romeo for even being at the Capulet’s feast and threatens to kill him.

In Dante’s Inferno, there are several allusions referring to people who are famous for their lustful sins. The sinners in the Carnal are tossed and whirled by the winds. They are helpless in the tempests of passion. This canto also begins by descriptions of the circle and those who devoted to the sins of incontinence and lust: the sins of the appetite for skin, the sins of passion, and the sins of self-indulgence. People like Semiramis and Ninus are also known for their lustful sins.
Robin 's conjuring has been powerful enough to summon him. However, Mephastophilis is angry at being called by such unworthy creatures. He refers to them as ‘villains ' (scene 9, 37) and ‘damned slaves ' (39) and accuses them of presumption. As well as frightening them with fireworks, he turns them into animals as a punishment. Once again, an essentially comic scene serves a serious purpose, since these punishments anticipate what Faustus will suffer when the devils come to
In Poe’s The Tell Tale Heart, Poe writes about how his characters are driven to commit murder and how their guilt eats them alive. The dark plots used is his writings exemplify the threshold of the unknown through the way that individuals are viewed as evil. All of his writings have some sort of violence that is driven by supernatural occurrences. The man in The Tell-Tale Heart has an eye that is scary and seen as potential evil that drives the narrator crazy and eventually causes murder.

Dante uses allegories or extended metaphors (“Topic: Allegory”), to illustrate those monsters he encounters throughout the journey as an instrument of punishment and symbol for sins based on their mythological history, in a way that Minos symbolize justice, Minotaur a symbol of violence in a form of self-punishment and Cerberus as an allegory of gluttony sin. To start, after going through the first circle, Dante and Virgil head to the second one. At the entrance of the second circle, they meet Minos, who stands as the “judge”, that sends the souls who appear before him into the depths of hell (Ralphs 4). The characteristics Dante attributes to Minos through his writings are drawn from his past life as a mythological character. Dante uses such attributes as a form of allegory to hide the significance of why he represented Minos as a symbol of justice.
