John Proctor is also loyal because he died for the love of his wife. For example, Proctor says, “...” This also makes John loyal because he died for Elizabeth. He wants to prove that he would do anything for his wife and marriage, and him confessing was the way to free her, so he did it. At the end he could have just accused someone else, but he didn’t want to accuse an innocent person. Proctor is honorable because he is loyal to his
None of them were innocent, but none were involved in the original acts. After finding out that the man behind the curtain he stabbed was Polonius, and not Claudius, he said, “A bloody deed? Almost as bad, good mother, As kill a king and marry with his brother.” Which is both admitting his horrible misdeed and calling out his mother for her deeds. This double meaning draws parallels with the entirety of Rosalie’s existence; always two sides and two meanings. She never does anything without careful consideration, much like Hamlet says nothing without careful consideration.
This ends up killing him and once the news makes it to the town it just rolls off their shoulders. The town thinks it was a typical death in the fact that he didn’t, “...have no plan, no thought for the future…” (322) and the fact that he even tried was just proving he was guilty. Tom just like Boo was misjudged but really innocent, nobody could overlook his race and for that reason, many problems
In the end though Kubra was not indicted meaning he was free to go kill the person who said his name to the judge, Alex. She ends up back in prison before he can get to her though for violating her probation by having a gun and planning so skip town. All of these things make Alex a very self-centered person. She threw the person she loves the most under the bus for her own personal gain, shows no regard to the law or how her actions effect others, she isn 't even faithful in her relationships considering she cheated on her ex with
“Whatever I touch has come to nothing.” Creon shouted this when he met his downfall. Antigone is about a princess named Antigone who buried her brother for moral beliefs. This was illegal at the time in the city of Thebes because the first thing that Creon did as king was make the law that no one can bury Polyneices and she was sentenced to death for this. Creon, king of Thebes, filled the prophecy and met his downfall with everyone he cared about had died and lead him to emotional death. A tragic hero is a person of noble birth with heroic or potentially heroic qualities.
I am no savior or the chosen one. I made my dragons burn Rollins edge 's castles to the ground because I wanted the woman who poisoned my father dead. She didn 't even have to lift a finger to do it. Such a queen, she had been. I may not have been born then, but my brother told plenty of stories for me to understand what she had done.
But this blow was arrested by the hand of my wife … I withdrew my arm from her grasp and buried the axe in her brain. She fell dead upon the spot, without a groan” (Poe). This is very similar in presentation to how The Tale-Tale Heart presents it, not that big of a deal that you did the act. The narrator kills his wife without a second thought because he wanted to kill the cat, but what I take from it is that he does not care about his wife enough that killing her does not mean anything to him, and that is insanity. In The Tell-Tale Heart the narrator does a very similar thing to what happens in The Black Cat, kills someone with no feelings of remorse for a very arbitrary reason.
Macbeth’s downfall is a result of free choice as he murders Duncan, even though the witches never mention anything about murder or violent acts to become king. Macbeth also demonstrates free choice by unnecessarily killing Banquo and attempting to kill Fleance, ensuring no one uncovers the truth about Macbeth murdering Duncan. Finally, Macbeth acts out of free choice by ruthlessly murdering Macduff’s family for no legitimate reason except for pure anger. Therefore, Macbeth’s gradual downfall is the result of free choice, as his immediate instinct leads to violence and murder due to his blind-lust for
The biggest example of their lack in morality, however, was in how Tom and Daisy Buchanan dealt with Daisy’s murder of Myrtle Wilson. Daisy let Gatsby take the full blame for it without any expression of guilt or remorse, even though she supposedly loved him. Gatsby’s death was even caused by taking the blame for Daisy’s crime, and yet she did not bother to attend his funeral. “They were careless people, Tom and Daisy - they smashed up things and creatures and then retreated back into their money or their vast carelessness...and let other people clean up the mess they had made”
19). They are considered as being unable to do anything, which can be especially seen when Clytemnestra confesses to the murder of Agamemnon: “Yes, I have killed him. So there the whole truth lies.” (pg. 70) Even though Clytemnestra publicly admits to committing the murder, she is disregarded as not being able to do something like that: “Some drug has snarled your brains” (pg. 70) or something “must have tangled your feelings into subhuman knots.” (pg.
“There is no flag large enough to cover the shame of killing innocent people”-Howard Zinn, if a person is innocent, there is no reason for them to die. However, if the person does something really bad, or attacks you, you have every right to kill them. Therefore, in the book, Lennie kills Curley’s wife, so George kills Lennie. (John Steinbeck, Of Mice and Men) George should not be punished for killing Lennie. George realized Lennie would never get better and the dream would never come true.
One after another victim-to-victim fell to the unjust and unlawful acts of the justice system of the time without any help from the surrounding society. Justine was the first to fall because of how no one stood up for her in the society that lived all around her therefore she took the fall for everything. Second to feel the heat was Mr. De Lacy who consequently dragged the whole family down the government did not want Mr. De Lacy poking around anymore so they framed him. No one tried to appeal the trial or even tried to find evidence to help his case. Finally Victor, the one who sat there and did not speak up for Justine, felt the cold shoulder from society too when he was accused of murder.
The next way his innocence is put to a halt is when Bob Ewell breaks his arm. Jem has never done anything to Bob, and Bob killed his innocence both physically and mentally. Tom is also another victim of innocence being ceased. While reading the book there’s no doubt that Tom is innocent but when he got convicted he knew from there he’d never be free. Atticus says “ I told him what i thought, but I couldn’t in truth say that we had more than a good chance.
Seen throughout the book, Of Mice and Men, the character development of the main character, Lennie, was changing to a more violent and uncontrollable human, and foreshadowed his death. Since Lennie killed Curley’s wife he was a fugitive, and anyone who killed him is just. In the novel of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck, the character George is justified in killing Lennie because of his actions caused by his disabilities allowing for a better life. George’s decision on killing Lennie was the right one. Lennie had no judgment on whether or not something was legal because of his mental illness.
—No more o ' that, my lord, no more o ' that. You mar all with this starting” (V.i line 36-38). Even though, Lady Macbeth had nothing to do with the murders after Duncan, like Banquo and Macduff’s wife as well as his son, she still feels guilty because she created the monster, by manipulating Macbeth to kill Duncan. Another reason Lady Macbeth feels remorseful is because she had to do with some of the action in the murder, for example planning the death of Duncan and framing Duncan 's attendant. The guilt is causing Lady Macbeth to go insane because she is aware “All the perfumes of Arabia will not sweeten this little hand.
