In Satan’s mouth there's the ones who betrayed someone. they are being punished by be chewed on for eternity by satan. The three sinners demonstrate the contrapasso because those three men all committed a very serious sin and they deserve nothing more than
Odysseus had to kill them, as these wooers were wrecking havoc on his home and tormented his wife. As stated in lesson 12, " the wooers had troubled his house, and devoured his substance, and oppressed his child". The lesson goes on to say, "they have suffered an evil doom through their own infatuate deeds". I believe the meaning of this quote is essentially, that the evil wooers got what they deserved. Odysseues could not have just sent
We could see, from this point, The warrior and Duncan’s “worthiest cousin” (1.4.15) is so terrified by his own action that a sound would scare him. While he is haunted by guilt, Macbeth has to secure his throne by murdering Banquo and Fleance. At the end of the feast which was set up for assassinating Banquo and his son, Macbeth is again terrified by the news that Fleance has fled and Banquo’s ghost will dried blood over his body. He said to the ghost: “Thou canst not say I did it. Never shake/
Dante’s Inferno is about a man name Dante Alighieri that goes thru the nine circles of hell. Each circle represents a sin(s) that you have committed and you’ll have to repent for them before your soul completely passes on. Limbo, the first circle of hell is for non-Christians and unbaptized pagans that reserve punishment from within entity of this circle from heaven’s inferno. Lust, the second circle of hell is for the people who are filled with nothing but lust, which means all they want is sexual pleasure, and they are punished by strong winds that violently push them back and forward. It is also one of the Seven Deadly Sins.
More severe sins sink sinners deeper in the ice. The 4 section are referred to as rounds, each round is named after a historical figure who personifies that sin. Round 1, Caina named after the biblical Cain who killed his brother, Round 2 is named Antenora after Antenor of Troy,3 Priam’s counselor during the Trojan War, Round 3 is named Ptolemaeus after the son of Abubus, Ptolemy, while Round 4 is named Judecca, after the apostle who betrayed Jesus with a
Then, Ugolino recalled how Ruggieri viciously starved them to the point where, upon witnessing their father’s grief and sorrow, Ugolino’s children began urging their father to eat them in order to relieve their father of his great hunger and ensure his survival. In the following few days, all his sons died of hunger, extending Ugolino’s misery even further. Ugolino ends his story with a rather disturbing line, “Then fasting did what misery had not done,” perhaps hinting at the possibility that he ate his dead sons, which could ultimately explain why Ugolino was in hell (p.2). At this point in the canto, all the pity I previously felt for Ugolino for the way he and his children were cruelly being treated by the archbishop, completely disappeared when I learned that Ugolino may be responsible for eating his own kids.
It is ironic that Jane is seen as the guilty party in the incident with John Reed because John started the fight when he slapped Jane. Then when John’s sisters, Eliza and Georgina, go to “tattle tale” on Jane, their mother blames Jane for the whole situation. Jane compares John to a “murderer,” “slave-driver,” and “Roman Emperors” (Bronte 9). During this comparison, she is implying that he is a very cruel and awful person. That he would beat her and boss her around.
“For brave Macbeth – well he deserves that name – disdaining Fortune, with his brandished steel, which smoked with bloody execution, like valor’s minion carved out his passage till he faced the slave; which nev’r shook hands, nor bade farewell to him, till he unseamed him from the nave to th’ chops, and fixed his head upon our battlements” (Act 1, Scene 2). His conscience in the beginning of the tragedy is clear and serene. This all ends when he decides to murder King Duncan. Macbeth starts to feel consumed with his guilty conscience, which makes him hallucinate. “Is this a dagger which I see before me, the handle toward my hand?
The monster believes that he is like Satan. He once was good, saving a young girl from drowning, but like Satan, he has fallen into the pits of hell. Where he consistently seeks revenge on Victor, his creator, who is seen as an allusion to God. This relationship between the monster and its creator, can be viewed as a parallel to God and Adam/Satan. Like Adam, he was created by God (Victor), and craves for a companion, just like the monster, who constantly implies that, “I am alone.
Quiet Kill He was astounded at how far the ripples of the past had extended into the present and at how Coz remained consistently inconsistent. In one last desperate attempt, to topple the barrel and at righting the ship, Wormwood yelled, “First of all, I’ve been called worse things by better people. Second, first chance I get, gonna cut your guts out then slice your throat. You think I’m joking, just you wait.
But when Virgil and Dante see Satan they see that he is chewing on three of the worst sinners to be known one was Judas who betrayed the son of god and the other two were Cassius and Brutus they both betrayed god too “That soul up there which has the greatest pain the master said is Judas Iscariot with head inside he piles his legs without of the two others who head downward are the one who hang from the black jowl is Brutus see how the he writhes himself and speaks no word and the other who so stalwart seems is Cassius” (Dante line-62-65) they are the three worst sinners and he is chewing on
In Rome there was a land called Iustitia ruled by Saevus Hostilius the Second, an evil, brutal king who ruled with tyranny and terror. On August 13 Hostilius was executing a villager for stealing a slice of bread. The king was twisted, and downright nasty. He became like that because of his uncle’s wishes for the throne. As Saevus’ father was king of the land.
Grimly, these “inmates of the European prison” faced not only a physical torture/murder of their bodies, but also a crushing blow to their mind, soul, and faith throughout the second war of the world. At the age of 15, Elie survived through the events that stole his life from him; only to leave him in a state of emotional duress, “Never shall I forget the small faces of the children whose bodies I saw transformed into smoke... these moments that murdered my god and my soul and turned my dreams to ashes. (34)” The Nazis were as malevolent el Diablo himself; they played twisted mind games such as these, “We
The Cursed Dynasty The House of Atreus, also known as the the cursed dynasty, is cursed with violence and war. The root of the curse began with Tantalus, who fed his own son, Pelops’, flesh to the olympians, and is condemned by the gods to starve in Hades. Later on in the history we see that Atreus and Thyestes, sons of Pelops, went to ‘war’ for similar cause. Thyestes seduced Atreus’ wife and attempted to seize power from him. Atreus then banished him.
