His peace has been taken away and torment begins to take over as he proclaims “Methought I heard a voice cry “Sleep no more! Macbeth does murder sleep”- the innocent sleep, sleep that knits up the raveled sleave of care, the death of each day’s life, sore labor’s bath, balm of hurt minds, great nature’s second course, chief nourisher in life’s feast”(2.2.34-39). Now, Macbeth’s innocence is gone and he will no longer be able to rest peacefully.

“I was never insane except upon occasions when my heart was touched.”(Poe) For 8 years Nigel Pratten suffered from Huntington’s disease, something he had always said he would kill himself before enduring. When given the opportunity Nigel swallows heroin no being physically capable of injecting it, and slips into a coma. His mother is with him while he does this and suffocates him before the drug kills him, not wanting him to suffer. It was her way of fulfilling her son’s final wish. Is mercy killing justified?

Pluto was the last in line to experience the narrator's irritability, which eventually resulted in him losing an eye and his life (Poe 719). The night of Pluto's murder the narrator's house was burnt down with only a single wall left with the impression of Pluto (Poe 719). Could this be a coincidence? When you account for the comments made by the narrator's wife and the meaning of the name Pluto, one could assume that Pluto was responsible for the fire or even for bringing on the narrator's alcoholism in the first place.
