In addition to causing the people to, it causes people’s personalities to parallel with the Devil. Giles Corey is a man known for having a court record, due to constant attempt to obtain the land of others. John Proctor claims that Giles “cannot say (...) good morning without [clapping] him for defamation”, because “it [is] the Devil’s fault” (31). The Devil claims power in this situation considering that the effect that he has on Giles is one that strips away his morals as a human being. Similarly, but in a contrasting locality, during this time period, it is known that the Devil’s abilities are able to convert even the purest and sinless people away from God.
I believe that John Proctor grows tired of the accusations, as to why he speaks of his false involvement with Satan in front of the town. Specifically, Deputy Danforth uses John Proctor as an example for conviction as he is certain he will be able to turn others
It seems ridiculous in a world that seek punish upon punish. More in more in the United States of America law enforcement officers are sought to be punished for the way they apprehend violators of the law. Grace as the divine attribute of God bestows worth upon the worthless and deliver unmerited favor to the hopeless. Paul instructed Titus in "saving grace." Titus does not have to work to receive the grace, but he works in response to the grace
This one-sided story by the narrator, Montresor, leads to a suspenseful conclusion not only that Fortunato’s insults perhaps are minor, but also that Fortunato may not recognize the issues at all. This lack of evidence and unrealistic friendship lead readers to believe that Fortunato does not deserve to be buried alive. Montresor could be just a sadistic character who wants to murder his enemy for
In some hard-boiled detective fictions, the police are not only ignorant and incompetent, but also violent and corrupt. Usually, the criminal gangsters share a close relationship with those police officers. They represents the social darkness and unfair. In The Long Goodbye, the police turned the fact upside down to cater the need of a multi-millionaire, by making false evidence, and commit perjury. Those mercenary polices have contrasted strongly with the righteous
In simple terms, Mario Puzo has kept the image of the epic hero, especially, when considering the relationship that is apparent in the heroes’ thirstiness for revenge, and ultimately their passion for glory and pride. Under revenge, both Achilles and Michael Corleone restore their pride through murder, one among his army and the other among the famous New York families. As modern audience, we cannot afford but to remark that in a modern world where Mario Puzo’s masterpiece is chronicled revenge by murder is unacceptable by law, it is the concern of the police forces. However, we see that law and order is absent in Puzo’s novel, it is instead a world driven by chaos and social disobedience. This reminds us of the epic atmosphere, where man battles against man, and where stable institutions that are supposed to regulate their actions are absent.
This is evident in the Seneca’s Oedipus as Oedipus does not realise he is the perpetrator of the crime. We get a sense of irony as Oedipus is able to solve the sphinx but not understand who he is. Furthermore, he wants to solve the case of who murdered King Liaus so that the plague of Thebes can end. However, because of Oedipus’ unawareness, we sympathise with the king as he shows true signs of guilt and remorse for his actions. In relation to Shakespeare’s Richard III, it is clear that Richard is the anti hero.
He is unable to control when he can transform, as it happens when he is in the presence of evil, but he still has his host’s feelings and can somewhat control who he does what to. In order to fulfil his thirst for revenge; he has criminals look into his eyes, where they will see and feel all the horrors and pain they’ve caused. This move is called the penance stare, which actually belonged to another ghost rider host called Danny Ketch, but was used in the film. The move ends in the criminal’s eyes being turned to hardened ash. In the second film, ‘Ghost Rider: Spirit of vengeance’, quite a bit of time has passed and Blaze is finding it much harder to control how he transforms, even when he tries very hard.
Villains often play a vital role in contrasting the protagonists, which brings upon sympathy towards the protagonists. In The Stranger by Albert Camus, society directly criticizes Meursault 's actions and beliefs, evoking Meursault 's sadness in the story. While in The Meursault Investigation, Merault is the antagonist of the story because he kills Musa, Harun’s brother. Meursault indirectly provokes Harun’s anger and fuels his ambition for his actions. Both stories present villains differently, where society is directly criticizing Meursault’s beliefs and actions in The Stranger while Meursault is indirectly hurting Harun in The Meursault Investigation.
Do all people have to understand the negative consequences of violence at the expense of people’s lives? This is probably how the director of the film “The Killer”, John Woo, wanted to express his personal view on this issue supporting it with stylistic techniques of slow motion, gun battles, music, and multiple transitions like cut action and cutaway. With all these, the morality of the film lies on the importance of brotherhood and loyalty, while blaming the brutal human-led actions. Specifically, the film “the Killer”1 criticizes excessive violence in order to show how two members of opposite social institutions struggle to achieve their own place in the world, which is evident from the homoerotic bonding, rejection of femininity, and allusion
In the comic books Batman is a hero but also considered as a villain some people because of how he looked and did things. It wasn’t normal to most people so they were scared of him of him and called him a villain the same way that they do Ultima. Ultima is not so much as different from everyone else in the community. She has fears, cleans, cooks, and goes
Sometimes a man says things he don’t mean. I don’t reckon he meant to talk to you thataway.” But The Misfit also shows no remorse when he shoots the grandmother in the chest after she touches him. The conflict symbolizes redemption, The Misfit symbolizes the evil that some must go through to reach the understanding of their own mistakes. The talk the grandmother and The Misfit have between them is mainly about religion, and what was done in the past, the talk leads to the grandmother having sympathy for him. The grandmothers moment of grace causes a terrible reaction from The Misfit.
He uses religion to scare people. Many of the people in Salem, especially John Proctor dislikes him .He knows that he has many enemies so he thinks that a faction is trying to make him go away from Salem. Parris fears of an anything related with witchcraft. In the first scene you may think that he is a loyal character who a worries about his little girl because he is standing in front of her bed;but, eventually you will understand
