Reputation effects Parris because, he doesn 't want to go against the bible and be accused of working with the devil. Lasly a good name affects Judge Danforth 's decisions because he sees that later he has killed innocent people, but does not want to come forward because he 's killed to many innocents and people will look at him different. John Proctor is a model citizen. A Lot of people have
He drove claudius into paranoidness because claudius was scared that he was going to kill him and hamlet did succeed but he also died too, an eye for an eye. Hamlet should have been placed in a mental hospital in todays day and age but that did not happen, he ended up hurting all of his peers. Hamlet is wrong because he thinks killing people will solve the issue which it will not so that is why he
But Ender hates that quality. Other people put him in situations where his defensive side turns into his bad side, but Ender always wishes for events to be ended without violence. His compassion is his strongest trait, and it bonds people to him; his ruthlessness wins their undoubted faith in him as a commander. Or at least that is what Colonel Graff
This is why he is so compulsive when he kills frank. Nothing will stop him from keeping what he believes is rightfully his. Strout’s compulsive action is not shown in acts of violence; we also see his compulsiveness and obsessiveness in his home throughout the story. The narrator states,” He spoke of Strout’s house: the order, the woman’s presence, the picture on the wall” (577). This statement is significant, because it sums up how Richard is still acting compulsive even after he has killed a man and his wife is gone forever.
However, Perry does show that he is concerned when Dick tries to rape her. Perry tells Dick, “ But you’ll have to kill me first” and “Now that’s something I despise (243)”. Perry is exemplifying the principles of right and wrong by taking the right side. He is against Dick raping Nancy and is even willing to risk his life for her. This shows that Perry is not evil because an evil person is someone who is not concerned with the principles of right and wrong and lack any type of empathy.
Even for most soldiers they would be quite uncomfortable killing a human, but Elijah does not even think twice about what he has just done. He even tries to justify that his actions were right and it had to be done. Guilt is no longer a part of Elijah and it is seen when he feels no remorse for killing an innocent child. Elijah possessing no guilt adds on to his ineffective way of coping with his adversities. Elijah disregards human lives by treating humans as a motivation for his own satisfaction which results in mental instability.
.” (75). Although the old man took precautions to keep himself away from the hands of death, his fate was sealed when he unknowingly trusted a vile man. He suspected nothing out of the ordinary, for the narrator continued to be gracious and empathetic. Believing that his measly locks could protect him, the old man is unwary of his approaching murder, foolishly believing he has escaped death. Similarly, Prince Prospero, in “The Masque of Red Death,” dreads the thought of death so amply, that he hides himself.
Roylott’s passing, though the detective felt no remorse concerning this fact. Dr. Roylott was a despicable man, whose numerous crimes created an abhorrence between him and Sherlock Holmes. While the detective did despise Dr. Roylott, the death was still an accident, as Sherlock Holmes could not predict the snake would end up biting its master, only to have its venom kill him just seconds later. Finally, it was Dr. Roylott’s own choice to continue to send the snake through the ventilator, even when he was aware he was suspected of the murder. In the end, Dr. Roylott eventually met the unfortunate fate he rightfully deserved; the hero Sherlock Holmes could not possibly feel any guilt towards this
Now, there is no direct quote from Capote discussing his view on this issue, but it can be reasonably inferred by the quote’s presence in the novel that he would argue each citizen to think about how and why the death sentence is actually used. Capote himself would most likely not agree with this stance, but it seems to be the way it is. The innocent men and women of the town were baffled and torn by the scene of the gruesome murder, and they needed a relief, which in this case, was the death of Perry and Dick. Clearly, the death penalty can be used as a way to comfort the people in a time of distress. In In Cold Blood, Truman Capote conveys the message that the death penalty can be used wrongly and unjustly.
He also is not guilty because he cannot tell the difference between fantasy and reality, and he cannot control his own morals. So, why not give this man a second chance? Everyone deserves
Walter never wanted to kill emilio and Krazy-8 but he did it out of self defense since they pulled guns out on jesse and walter and they had to do something about it. when jesse and walter lock Krazy-8 in the basement they flip a coin to see who kills him and walter does not want to kill the man but he knows if he doesn 't that krazy-8 will probably come back and kill walter and his family so it 's a life or death situation for him so he needed to make a decision but he almost let him go if Krazy-8 wouldn 't have had a knife he probably would have been free to go but since he wanted to try and kill walter he had to end Krazy-8’s life. his moral choices and decisions were a hardship for him so some of his choices were overall evil and he tries to make the right decisions but he does what really has to be done in order to keep him and his
That shows that even though he knows that they feel terrible, Julian doesn’t apologize much less feel remorse. Lastly, Julian doesn’t give Auggie a chance. Julian right away decided that he’s a ‘freak’. All of this explains that he doesn’t feel remorse and that he’s not a good role model to
This reinforces the idea that Grendel would be open to friendship if only the Danes were. Unlike Grendel, the Monster struggles to justify his actions; he is beyond remorseful, asking if Walton thought “that the groans of Clerval were music to [his] ears? [His] heart was fashioned to be susceptible of love and sympathy; and when wrenched by misery to vice and hatred, it did not endure the violence of the change” (Shelley 164). By stating that his heart was brought to vice and hatred by misery, the Monster implies that no life would have been lost had he been given a companion with whom he could be happy; with a mate he could have remained a being of love and sympathy. This is reinforced by the rhetorical question that serves to convince Walton that the Monster hated having to turn to violence.
It is therefore not very surprising that she tries to convince The Misfit that he’s a good man instead of trying to convince him to spare her family, because she is trying to manipulate him into thinking he isn’t the kind of person who would “shoot a lady” because that is how she thinks a man who “come[s] from nice people” would behave (45). Any other person would not bother with her argument because if there is anyone who is clearly not a good person, it’s a serial killer. Grandmother, on the other hand, values the idea of appearing to be a good person over anything else and can’t acknowledge that The Misfit would have different values. She is so focused on clinging to this philosophy that she barely notices when her family gets shot and continues with her ineffective argument
In Maycomb County the people spread rumors about Boo Radley because he is mysterious and stays inside his house. He keeps to himself and people believe he is a killer who should be locked up. They believe the rumors they hear and just because they never see him they construct an image in their heads that he is dangerous. In truth Boo just wants to have friends and looks over the Finch children. When Bob Ewell attacks Jem and Scout Boo is the one who saves them and Atticus is very grateful (Lee 276).
