“The Pardoner’s Tale” by Geoffrey Chaucer, the three rioters originally planned to travel to kill Death. After traveling less than half a mile, The three rioters met a poor, old man; the old man told them where they could find Death. The three rioters followed his directions and found not Death but a pot of gold coins under a tree. After, discovering the gold coins, they secretly plotted to kill each other, hoping to keep the treasure to only himself. Because of this, the role of the gold coins acted as the source and main cause of their death.
I personal think that the old man is Death considering that he said if they would find Death under the tree. At first the friends were all going to split the gold but as time went on greed changed them. Once the money was introduced in the story the friends turned on each other. Chaucer was really good about explaining his ideals about lust in “The wife of Bath’s Tale”. The main character was The Knight, one day he saw a beautiful lady I couldn’t resist temptation in lust and raped her in lines (30- 38).
One of the men leaves to provide them with wine and food while they wait for nightfall. When arriving back into town, he buys poison and adds it to the wine. Meanwhile, the other two that stayed behind to watch the gold, decided to kill him and they would end up sharing the gold. The irony in the story comes down to all three of them dying. Therefore, the Pardoner’s moral of the story is that money is the root of all evil.
He said it is not his place to do so and that heaven will judge her when it comes time. The ghost also tells him that he fell asleep in the garden and Claudius poured poison in his ear to kill him. Hamlets fear about his uncle was true after all. “O my prophetic soul!” he cries (1.5.40). After finding out all this information, Hamlet was in a dark spot that lead him to acting insane to investigate the accusations that his father had made.
I believe that hamlets actions were not justified but one is, because revenge isn’t a good thing, but Claudius is not just a murderer he is a stealer too. Claudius killed Hamlets father with the easiest but the cleverest way. He poisoned Hamlets father himself, while Hamlets father was sleeping. Then Claudius told everyone that he died of a sudden heart attack or some disease nobody knew
There is three rounds and Hamlet won two of the three rounds and in the second round, he won the queen decided that she is to give the victory cup to Hamlet after she drinks it, but Claudius was trying to stop her from drinking it and she refuses and decided to drink it. As she gives the cup to Hamlet, he refused once again. Then Claudius is sad because he basically killed his wife and while the fight is going on he is worried about her. Comes the third round and this round is where they can kill one another after a few hits with the sword, they took a break and while they were taking a break Laertes cut his arm with the poison sword and now Hamlet is going to die. As Hamlet was in pain from the cut he took Laertes sword and stabbed him, though the stomach area and he falls on his knees.
“Unable to endure the aspect of the being I had created, I rushed out out of the room and continued a long time traversing my bedchamber, unable to compose my mind to sleep”(47). He spent two years creating this creature just to run from it when it was done. He was too blinded by desire to see what his creation truly was, and when he realized what he had done, he could barely handle it. He, subconsciously, was probably more scared of himself than of what he created. Victor also allows Justine to die for the murder of his younger brother because he’s afraid of what people will think.
An Irony is evident in the eighth chapter of The Great Gatsby, due to the unexpected situation, when Wilson kills Gatsby; this episode is Ironic because of multiple reasons; At first readers should have expected instead for Tom to kill him due to the fact that Gatsby was having an affair with Daisy. On the other hand Wilson thinks when he kills Gatsby that he is avenging his wife 's deaths but that 's simply a misunderstanding and finally the murderer is the only character who seems to care about conventional morality and rules of socially acceptable behavior. In chapter eight Gatsby states that: "He couldn 't possibly leave Daisy until he knew what she was going to do. He was clutching at some last hope and I couldn 't bear to shake him free" (155). Through this quote it is evident the deep affection and love.
The old man is confronted by the three rioters and he tells them where he last saw Death. The three rioters die at the tree later, which could mean the old man knew they would be consumed by greed and die up there, hinting at the old man being Death. “Thus these two murderers received their due, so did the treacherous young poisoner too.”
macbeth is not a tragic hero anywhere throughout this story let me explain this guy goes throughout the story this guy goes and turns completely crazy because of this prophecy that these witches gave him that he would become all of these things like the king and thain of cawad and another one so he was thinking about it so hard when the king killed one of the thain's and disowning one so when macbeth became both he knew that the prophecy must have been true so he went and killed the king and all so his wife but it doesn't say that and he did all of this at night so he would feel bad about it. this shows that macbeth could definitely no be a tragic hero due to the fact that he let power overcome him also tragic heroes don't kill unless there
