In the textbook, on page 359, states, “Perseus sprang once more into the air unveiling the dreadful head of dead Medusa to the monster, which reared its dripping jaws high into the air. The mighty tail stiffened all of a sudden, the boiling of the water ceased, and only the gentle waves of a receding ocean lapped around a long, gray ridge of stone.” Perseus then marries Andromeda, and becomes the new king of Argos. Evidence in the text on page 359 proves this. “Then Perseus freed Andromeda and restored her to her father and beautiful mother. Thereafter, with their consent, he married her amid the scenes of tremendous rejoicing, and with his bride set sail at last for the kingdom of Polydectes…….Thus the prophecy of Apollo was fulfilled at last; Acrisios was killed by his grandson.
Othello tells Iago to go get some poison to kill Desdemona, but Iago refuses and just tells him to strangle her in her bed (IV. I. 223-229). Iago’s manipulation has not only lead Othello to believe the rumor is true, but has lead him to kill his own wife as well. Iago even manipulates Othello to strangle her, which is a much personal and vengeful death than poison.
When he murders Grendel, he leaves all the materialistic treasures and only takes the most valuable thing to him, Grendel’s head. By the end of the poem, Beowulf is established as a courageous, prideful and an overall hero. Reputation to Beowulf was very critical because he didn’t want to be seen as anything less than the
One being murderous. She is willing to kill an innocent family for the sake of more room for her children. She proves to be quite the killer when Darzee’s wife tells Rikki-tikki “-oh, come quickly-she means killing!”(24) She plans on killing Teddy when she goes up to his leg and says “...move I strike, and if you do not move, I strike.”(25) As you can tell, Nagaina does not value the lives of anyone except Nag, her kids, and herself. Only a murderous snake would do these kinds of things. To Nagaina’s misfortune, Rikki-tikki gets the upper hand when they fight to the death.
Later, after Beowulf defeated Grendel, he was faced with the task of defeating Grendel's mother. Grendel's mother went to Hrothgar and began antagonizing the people that lived there because they killed her son and she was very angry. Beowulf went after her to the lake and killed her, even with the disadvantage of being underwater. After Beowulf kills Grendel's mother, he says "if God had not helped me" (Seamus Heaney, Line 1657), which means that he could have possibly not been successful if God had not been there to support him during the battle." Fifty years later, Beowulf reaches success again as a king by defeating a greedy dragon that lived underground and started burning houses because someone went into his lair and took some of his possessions (Seamus Heaney, Line 2220-2334).
As stated in the text, “Rikki Tikki knew better than to waste time staring… just under him whizzed by the head of Nagaina, Nag’s wicked wife” (para 29). First, this evidence proves that Nagaina is evil because everyone in the garden is afraid of her and call her evil which makes her one of the villains of the story. Secondly, Rikki Tikki is not evil because he is known as the hero of the story while Nagaina is known as the opposite which is the villain. Also, Nagaina being evil proves that she was villainous which put her eggs and Nag at risk. Furthermore, Nagaina says, “You warned Rikki-tikki when I would have killed him.
She said while she went to kill Teddy, “If you move I strike, If you don’t move, I strike.” This proves that Nagaina was cruel and she knew it. She also plotted with Nag to take Rikki’s life. That didn’t work out so well for Nag, or Nagaina really! In conclusion, Nagaina was a very cruel and dangerous snake. But we have found she was a very misunderstood snake.
After doing such a thing she was exiled from her own homeland and while she was escaping with Jason and the Golden Fleece she took severe measures and murdered her brother, cutting him up into little pieces, and throwing those pieces into the sea in order to gain some time to escape successfully. This was a complete and utter betrayal by Medea towards her family and homeland. This was not it, Medea and Jason settled in Lolcos and in Lolcos Medea manipulated the daughter of the king and tricked her into killing her father (the king of Lolcos). The only reason she did this was so that Jason could obtain the throne of Lolcos but both of them were banned from Lolcos too. After this Creon, the king of Corinth, welcomes them into his territory, in Corinth, Creon asks Jason to marry his daughter and Jason accepts, betraying Medea.
She goes through with the act of killing Jason's new bride - Medea's children bring her a poisoned gown, which also ends up killing the King of Corinth. - And then faces the tough act of murdering her own children who she loves dearly. She does the awful deed and refuses to allow Jason access to their bodies to bury them or the ability to say goodbye to them, “For I'll send the children to her with
Another argument can be made that the witches are responsible for the murder of Duncan because they were the ones that planted the idea inside Macbeth’s mind that he would become king someday; Macbeth upon first hearing the prophecy decided to not act upon it and just leave it upto faith but Lady Macbeth forced his hand to do the worst possible crime to make him
