On the first read through of these two texts, readers may often not detect the manipulation taking place, but after closer examination, the true intentions of the two aforementioned characters come to light. This is especially
General Zaroff is an amazing hunter, “[has] hunted every kind of game in every land” (). Since he has hunted every animal and was smarter than every animal, there was nothing left for him to hunt. General Zaroff had been hunting since he was a child, and he thought all animals were too easy, except one. “‘It must have courage, cunning, and, above all, it must be able to reason’” (). By this, he means humans. General Zaroff wants to kill people for the fun of it and to challenge himself. And when the character, Rainsford, confronts him about hunting people being a crazy idea, Zaroff is surprised that Rainsford doesn’t like the idea. Zaroff is similar to Montresor, in the way that they want to kill people. Although, they have different reasons for doing so. Montresor kills because he wants Fortunato to pay for the so called injuries he committed towards Montresor. And Zaroff kills for joy, and excitement. He wants a challenge, and hunting any regular type of animal isn’t good enough. It’s as if he is hungry for a challenge, and he knows the only thing as smart as him, is one of his kind. This is a mental flaw due to the fact that it is a way to almost disguise murder. Saying that he wants to hunt an animal that can reason instead of saying he wants to kill people.

Agatha Christie is known as the queen of mystery. The novel Evil Under The Sun is a clever murder mystery which shows me how Christie plays with the social psychology of the femme fatale change in to homme fatale. Christie creates a wonderful mystery by putting the different pieces of the jigsaw to illustrate a perfectly finished picture of true evil. In Evil Under The Sun, Christie describes not one but two strong female characters; one is good and other is naïve but not evil. Christie plays the stereotype of the femme fatale which was a more common stereotype in the late nineteenth century when attractive women represented as murderers or reasons for destruction. But in Evil Under the Sun Arlena is a beautiful, a flirtatious, seductive and attractive best stage actress but not a deadly woman and Rosamund Darnley is a smart and successful and London’s best known dressmaker but Patrick Redfern, a young man handsome, attractive, but a deadly, immoral or beastly man. The novel presents personification of evil as Patrick Redfern who is real homme fatale but not a woman.
What starts off as a seemingly normal love poem takes a shocking turn as one lover goes to extremes in order to gain control. Robert Browning’s poem “Porphyria’s Lover” illustrates how far a person is willing to go to gain complete control in their relationship.
