The play supposedly can be counted as a murder mystery story but most of the murder mystery usually end with the criminal being justified but in this, the idea of justice is very tricky. When Mrs Hale and Mrs Peters discovered the dead canary, they successfully found a solid evidence that can serves as a motive for Minnie’s killing her husband. However, they somewhat interpreted the evident to justify Minnie’s act of murder. They perceived that Minnie’s action actually was not a murder, but an escape. The fact that John Wright’s cruel action in strangling Minnie’s beloved pet bird that helped her to cope with her isolation was not the only sole reason she murdered him.
It is clear to infer that the most important value of literature is ethics/morals, but after studying the facts, it is obvious that experience is the most relevant value of literature as shown in "Macbeth" by William Shakespeare and Sonnets "Astrophil and Stella" and "Sonnet 39" by Sir Philip Sidney. It is important to know the value of literature because it connects individuals with larger truths and ideas in everyday life. Literature creates a way for people to record their thoughts and experiences in a way that is accessible to others. Ultimately, It is clear, that experience is the most important value of literature without experience, nobody would have even known who Anne Frank was.

So they decide to go behind their parents back and get married. People reading the story always describe the ending of the story as if Romeo dies due to him hearing that Juliet has passed and all of the pain he was being put through. Never have we ever stopped and talked about how he actually committed suicide. Suicide which is a major problem and cause of death in our daily lives. We never stopped and asked ourselves was Juliet’s fake death or real death at that, even a good enough reason or would really be worth Romeo going and killing himself.
In act four of Shakespeare's "Macbeth" Macbeth murders most of a noble man's family out of impulse and paranoia. He suspected said nobleman of plotting against him, and much like the murder of his friend Banquo, he killed him before he got the chance. But this murder is not like the ones before it, this one is much more sinister. The man Macbeth suspected, Maduff, was suspect because he refused to show up to any events that Macbeth attended, and when Macbeth went to ask the witches they warned him Macduff was to be cautioned. This time Macbeth decides right away that Macduff must go.
Salamanca blames people without understanding their side of the story. First of all, Salamanca blamed Margaret of being a murderer. Phoebe told Sal that Margaret killed her husband and that she might have chopped him up with the help of Mr. Birkway, their English teacher. “Like Mr. Cadaver - as I told you before. Maybe Mr. Birkway helped her chop up her husband and bury him and maybe they were getting worried and decided to disguise the spot with a rhododendron bush.” (Creech, page 84).
“Do you really think you knew your husband?” (Matheson 9). Norma said this to Mr. Steward right after accidentally killing her husband by pressing the button. Norma was extremely tempted to press the button to get fifty-thousand dollars knowing that she would murder a random person. In real life it this were to occur for people or somebody, they would most likely want to press the button too because most people need the money so the struggle of not pressing the button would make someone sorrowful since they would not get any money.

“It is a truth universally acknowledged that a single man in possession of good fortune must be in want of a wife.” Reading this quote any literary enthusiast can guess who the author is, as this has been one of the most talked about quotations in English literature.

I do think that the eye symbolize the issue that the has narrator has with his inner vision. Which he refuses to accept that he is sick and mentally unstable. Because the narrator did describe the eye as “evil” and the eye of “vulture”, and these words does summarize the narrator 's identity pretty much. Since he did kill the old man without any real reason and dismembers his body and even courageously let the police sit and have a conversation over the old man’s corpse. Furthermore he did stalk the old man before he killed him and showed no sympathy nor any human emotion.
