We hear the poet 's stammering voice, helplessly screaming aloud to himself while futilely hammering at the gates of the impregnable heinousness of the holocaust in an attempt to ethically hack the language of murder and murderers and purge it off its monstrosity. In With a Variable Key,
The infernal imagery is used mainly in the speeches of Tamburlaine’s opponents, especially Bajazeth, who more than anyone else suffers brutal and inhuman treatment. His laments and curses compress all the dark and violent acts and emotions of the play into imagery alluding frequently to features of the classical underworld. Sometimes the afterworld is imagined as a celestial Heave, but much more frequently the characters picture it as Hades. He prays that the dread god of hell may with ebon sceptre strike this hateful earth. (p.41) He implores the furies to dive to the bottom of Avernus’ pool to bring up hellish poison for Tamburlaine.
Dante’s Inferno is known for its striking imagery between a sin and the punishment given in Hell. While playing the role of God, Dante the poet seems to be a completely different person than Dante the pilgrim, who embarks on a journey through nine circles of fiery Hell. The Inferno becomes more than just an understanding of Hell when readers, as well as Dante the pilgrim, hear the stories of characters who don’t seem to belong there. The fact that characters, such as Francesca and Virgil, tell Dante their own story of how innocent they are, completely intensifies the feeling that a tragic mistake has been made, especially when the character Dante starts to feel pity. Many people like myself found Francesca 's story to be tragic, and found Dante’s discernment surprising when he placed her in Hell.

Beasts, or, his shadow blocks the way he wants to use to reach the divine light. He was on the wrong path. “The path to paradise begins in hell.” The pilgrim must pass through the dark realms of the underworld and witness every aspect of the unconscious that remained hidden so
The aspect of ‘Divine Displeasure’ is attributed almost perfectly to Grendel, the monster of Beowulf and the terror of Hrothgar. Both authors paint a grotesque picture of their creations and how they both desire to destroy beauty; Aesthetic Iconoclasm, that is shared between the two figures. However, both authors present their monsters separate to one another in philosophy; with Grendel being a mindless savage and the Monster being more contemplative and questioning the nature of its own creation. ‘Monster’ characters have always been a target of both folk tales and pagan myths since the dawn of humanity, the very concept of a monstrous creature harkens back to the primal fear instinct of facing a dangerous predator that presents a danger to humanity. Grendel from Beowulf is the perfect example of this hysteria and
Taking the desert as an example, it is often reckoned as a wasteland filled with derelict and forlorn images. Unbearable daytime and grisly nights render the land all the more desolate. Men tend to take the despairing plight as a demise of a villain in a story rather than give an end of protagonists living there happily. Crime and punishment also have been incarnated in many characters from a wide range of literary works. Here, in The Holy Bible, both Cain and Jonah are the incarnations of crime and punishment.

Then the narrator redirects his antipathy again towards the specific “you” as he continues “You threw me down the throat of hell / Tied my hands and burned me with your tongue” echoing of “10 Silver Bullets”. The narrator goes further with his accusation as he continues “Drowned me in the nothingness / Into the abyss of your poison well”. It is questionable if the accusations are directed towards “her”, or if the narrator is blaming his own deceptive heart.
Forbidding you from the freedom of sleep, your skin will crawl until you itch yourself to rawness and enflame your bones into a fury of fire and ash. Beating furiously it will be as if your heart is desperately trying to claw through the bones of your very structure and escape the imprisonment of your crumbling skeleton. Drowning into the depths of life, you will be choking and chasing after the surface desperate to catch a breath yet, the demons of your past will drag you
