“I done it!” The school stared in perplexity at this incredible folly. Tom stood a moment, to gather his dismembered facilities; and when he stepped forward to go to his punishment the surprise, the gratitude, the adoration that shone on him out of poor Becky’s eyes seemed pay enough for a hundred floggings” (page 127). This is an example of how he treats Becky better and how he earned her admiration by taking her punishment for tearing the teacher’s book. Tom wouldn’t have done that at the beginning of the book when they fight and that shows a gradual change taking place. His braveness and chivalry, however, represents a more mature version of the meaning of concern for others and helping them out when Tom refuses to give up looking for the way out of the cave.
It also can be a reaction from having known he had completed a wretched task when killing Duncan, so he was automatically concerned for keeping that secret hidden from the world. As a direct result of that, a pattern sets in, with the constant spilling of blood. Due to the high intensity of the moments leading up to Duncan’s death, a blade appears in
Oedipus needed answers, so he sent for a blind seer named Teiresias to give him the answers he was looking for. Once Teiresias knows what’s going on he dreads to tell Oedipus that he is the killer. The two men go back and forth until Oedipus says something that triggers Teiresias “you planned it, you had it done, you all but killed him with your own hands: if you had eyes, I’d say the crime was yours, and yours alone” (1.332-334). Oedipus still given the information and basically the whole truth is too caught up in his head and ignorant to the facts. This was an example of the irony that Oedipus is ‘blind’.

No!” The barber knows that nobody deserves to die. The barber notes, “I could cut this thorat just so, zip! zip! I wouldn’t give him time to complain … But I’m trembling just like a real murderer.” The barber isn’t a murderer, he is a barber.

To overcome the restrictions placed on his life by his father, Neil Perry kills himself. Mr. Perry contacts the administration of Welton shifting blame to the Dead Poets Society. The pressure from Welton’s administration leads the Society to shift blame to Keating and his teachings.

Holden’s attitude to saying goodbye to Pencey Prep At the start of the book Holden says: Chapter 1:“What I was really hanging around for, I was trying to feel some kind of a good-by. I mean I've left schools and places I didn't even know I was leaving them. I hate that. I don't care if it's a sad good-by or a bad good-by, but when I leave a place I like to know I'm leaving it. If you don't, you feel even worse.” (Salinger 2010: 4) Holden is angry and disappointed with the people around him, but even with this feeling of anger and disappointment towards these people, he wants a good bye from these people.
“I think it was his eye! Yes, it was this!…whenever it fell upon me my blood ran cold; and so by degrees – very gradually –I made up my mind to take the life of the old man, and thus rid myself of the eye forever.” (78) This piece of evidence is arguable to whether or not he is insane since he is murderous over something as simple as an eye, but not having a motive in the first place proves
While Montresor pretends to be a good friend to Fortunato, it is strange that Fortunato does not realize the problems between them. In order to be believable for readers, the insults must be very painful for Montresor, so it urges him to commit such a crime. “The Cask of Amontillado” is missing an important element of Montresor’s motivation to punish Fortunato by burying him alive. Montresor neglects to explain how Fortunato insults him as the story lays the foundation at the opening paragraph, “The thousand injuries of Fortunato I had borne as I best could, but when he ventured upon insult I vowed revenge.” (Poe 866); however, no evidence to be found in the story to support Montresor’s claim. No one would not know what Fortunato did to Montresor and should the insults lead to
His pride led to him insulting and treating others poorly, which made them tell the truth about Oedipus’ past. His quick temper made him lash out at others for no reason. Oedipus’ immense determination led to his blind search into the murder of Laius at all cost. These traits led to the downfall of Oedipus and the fulfillment of the roles of a tragic
During the beastie assembly, after the outbreak of the crowd’s disobedience, Piggy told Ralph to blow the conch, but in response, he said, “ If I blow the conch and they don’t come back; then we’ve had it…”(pg92). Ralph is too dependent on the shell, and also too concentrated to work. He needs

One afternoon Lavinia hears odd noises coming from the privy and out comes Mr. Waters kicking at Marshall to get up. Lavinia describes what she saw,"When I peaked in I found Marshall partially clothed, sitting in the corner on the floor(Grissom,85)." The worst part was that he got away with the abuse and rape for so long. Marshall wanted to get out of it so badly before when he had turned eleven he had asked his mother to let him go to real school.
