In this time, the dragon was attempting to convince Grendel to terrorize the humans, since they are already scared of him. However, Grendel can’t even comprehend what the dragon is saying because he’s so scared of how he looks. Shmoop.com says, “In short, Grendel's dragon is elemental, massive, invincible—totally scary. In an ironic twist, Grendel can hardly pay attention to the "wisdom" that the creature wants to give him, because he's so entranced by sight of the dragon's body. It's another way in which Gardner is trying to play with the idea of the monstrous: Grendel is too afraid of the dragon to listen to anything he has to say, just as the humans are too afraid of Grendel to listen to anything he has to say.”
Moreover, negative aspects of totalitarianism can be seen through the encouragement of hatred throughout the people. The most iconic symbol of hatred that the people demonstrate throughout this novel is the two minutes of hate. The entire process of it, shows just how much control the party has over the people. Winston details of that, “[t]he horrible thing about the two minutes of hate was not that one was obliged to act apart, but that it was impossible to avoid joining in … At those moments, [Winston’s] secret loathing of Big Brother changed into adoration” (Orwell 14-15).
Even if they are younger boys they still did bad things to survive. Which leads me to believe humans are not all that nice of people. I believe that humans are bad because they kill and are selfish. William Golding’s novel Lord of the flies shows that humans are violent through survival situations. An example of this is Jack who was ready to kill or hurt or destroy anyone or anything at any given moment.
In Macbeth's situation Macbeth is wanting to be that prideful animal, but he is seen by the public as a person desperately trying to be important, recognized by his overwhelming pride in greatness. He is no longer seen as the “falcon” by anyone, as his true intention and weaknesses are revealed through the use of this comparison. Those who gave him high honors before are no longer seeing the greatness that was once there before, but the greatness that he is failing to revive. He is now seen clearly as the snake under his own mask. Equally, the imagery of crows and darkness replicates the emptiness Macbeth is trying so hard to fulfill.
Firstly, Oedipus’s wrath is the main reason why the oracle’s prophecy became true which causes his downfall in the end of the play. When Oedipus was fleeing from Corinth, he became enraged when he got pushed aside. The fury he had within triggered the start of the prophecy. In the play, it stated, “ On the way, he brawls with an old man in a carriage… and in a fit of temper kills him.”
As page 165 says, “He was spit on and pelted with Cokes, ice, and coins”, he was very hated. Of course, with hate comes violence, and that is exactly what happened to Perry Wallace. Even though he did nothing wrong but want to play a game that he liked. Another way he was hurt was simply by names. Being called very inappropriate names that really tore him down.
When Victor first created the Creature, he observed it with horror and disgust. When the Creature found out what Victor thought of him he stated “I am solitary and abhorred” (111). Finding out that even his creator hated him filled the Creature with agony and rage. These emotions that Victor brought upon the Creature compelled him to kill Victor’s loved ones. Also, by leaving the Creature on his own, he never learned social skills or how to act in front of other people.
Edwards tells us that “God that holds you over the pit of hell, much as one holds a spider, or some loathsome insect, over the fire, abhors you; he looks upon you as worthy of nothing else”. He tells preaches that those supporting the old ways, “have offended him infinitely more than ever a stubborn rebel did his prince: and yet ‘tis nothing but his hand that holds you from falling into the fire every
The monster begins to feel he will never be accepted into human society even if he does good deeds. Demonstrated by the quote, “I had saved a human being from destruction, and as a recompense I now writhed under the miserable pain ... I vowed eternal hatred and vengeance to all mankind,” (Shelley 155). The creature is influenced by all of those around is taught to hate against humans and take drastic actions. On the contrary, Lady Macbeth receives a spark from external forces such as Macbeth but, her own ambition is ultimate cause of her actions.
Tybalt illustrates passionate hate which makes him very impatient with the Montagues and leads to his own death and causes emotional distress to the Capulet family. Accordingly this can be seen when Romeo goes to the fest at the Capulets and Tybalt wants to kill him solely because he was present at the fest. This, by his voice, should be a Montague. — (to his PAGE) Fetch me my rapier, boy.
Grendel was always sinning by murdering every night. In lines 1-2 it backs up my stating of Grendel being evil it says “A powerful monster, living down in the darkness, impatient.” Grendel was smart in many ways. One way Grendel was smart was because he knew when to strike. Grendel killed many of people undetected.
“Viciously, with full intention, he hurled his spear at Ralph..tore the skin and flesh…”(pg181). This quote not only defines the brute force of Merridew, it would also explain why the other children are afraid of Jack, Looking at this in a perspective of a hunter, if anyone were to resist him( he already shown that he has the guts to kill), Jack will just punish you mentality and physically to convert you to his side, or even murder you if you don’t. With that being said, that’s why Jack is never suited of becoming an effective leader, because he doesn’t use democracy, but rather dictatorship(just like Kim Jong
Because the monster experiences violence rather than nurture, he turns violent against mankind. The violence from the De Lacy family causes the creature to “feel anger, then a desire for revenge, and finally a violent severing from all that is human” (Mellor). This exhibits violent recurrence that arises as nurture is replaced by violence. This violence leads to murderous actions. When the monster first encounters William, he hopes to “educate him as [his] companion” (126, Shelley).
Additionally, Bob Ewell’s hatred towards Atticus grew, as the book went on. He got so sick and tired of him and wanted revenge. Atticus explains that, “So if spitting at my face and threatening me saved Mayella Ewell one extra beating, that’s something I’ll gladly take.” Harper Lee describes that Bob Ewell was so full of hatred that he would beat up anyone he disliked. Towards the end of the novel.
On the whole, envy changes people in ways they never thought would exist. Even though all envious entities start off ordinary people they can be corrupted and taken hostage by this emotion. Envy is an ever growing vine that keeps getting bigger and stronger as it feeds on your terrible thoughts and actions. Envy changed men like Jack and Minh Nguyen as both of them took it to the extreme by committing terrible acts of violence. Jack tried to murder Ralph because he had power in the beginning of the story and Jack’s envy of Ralph had grown ever so greatly.
