As readers, we have no idea what Fortunato did to Montresor or his family name to drive him to such revenge. Poe hints at certain things, from revenge and the family crest to his arrogance of insisting that Fortunato penetrate the Montresor vault to acquire the esteemed Cask Amontillado. "The thousand injuries of Fortunato I had borne as I best could, but when he ventured upon insult, I vowed revenge" (1126). The only clue is that Montresor systematically closes up Fortunato in a bone chamber perhaps with others who have wronged his family in the past. However, due to the reader's not knowing his true injustice, his murder seems unjustified and maybe even cruel to some
“He chased me round and round the place, with a clasp-knife, calling me the angel of death and saying he would kill me and then I couldn’t come for him no more” (Twain 29). It is ironic for Pap to call Huck the angel of death when in reality, he is the one that tries to kill Huck.

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.

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 Bosnian genocide was a series of mass killings of the Bosnian Muslims between 1992 and 1995. The genocide was committed by the Serbians, who saw it fit to rid Bosnia and Herzegovina of the Muslim culture. It was one of the bloodiest and gory periods in Bosnians history, and will forever be etched into the memory of the survivors, who had to witness the violence and traumatizing actions taken by the Serbs. Future genocides like the war in Bosnia and Herzegovina can be prevented as long as the United Nations is doing their part and checking in on the current leaders, and if law enforcement in that country has the right to severely punish any acts of racially-based violence, in order to make an example of the person committing those acts, to discourage others from following.
