War’s outcome is fatalities of many people. This is typically due to conflict from two opposing parties, resulting in murders. In like manner, Boll weevil is murderous as he murders Cecil by stabbing him in the chest, due to the fact that Cecil does not give him the money that Cecil owes (108). It is apparent in this quote that Boll weevil is murderous: “Then without let up, there came a rush of lively blows followed by a loud scream, a heavy thud on the floor and a scurrying of feet towards the door” (106). This quote shows that Boll weevil is capable of shooting someone (Cecil), therefore making him murderous, similarily to war.
He slowly tortures Grendel and even lets him go in the hopes he bleeds to death. The desire for vengeance grows when the Geats decide to hang his arm from the rafters. Beowulf’s bloodlust is so excessive he tries to murder Grendel in the most inhumane ways, and even goes to the extent of sacrificing one of his own men to satisfy his need to kill the undying Grendel. In Atalanta, Meleager and Atalanta go hunting and caught so many animals that they even attracted Artemis’ unwanted attention. Artemis therefore grew upset and “molded a huge boar, mud-colored, with red evil eyes” (177) Atalanta and Meleager obviously slaughter an abundance of animals to get Artemis’ attention.
Nero has become one of the most infamous men that ever lived. Although Nero has impacted Rome positively, he has done several charges that would inevitably send him to hell. Taking part in several murders, which include the killing of his mother, partaking in homosexual acts, and even betraying his beloved country, he will endure eternal punishment in hell where he will suffer for the heinous crimes he has committed throughout his
However Eric conquered the fear and passed the test, this shows courage because most people would back out but Eric did not. When Eric first went to the boxing gym he did not know what to do, so when someone approached him to spar he agreed. Since the other man was a lot more experienced he beat Eric with little effort. Eric felt embarrassed after the defeat but instead of giving up he continued to go and eventually found a trainer who taught him how to box.
Storytelling within Beowulf often differs, a handful of the stories are told traditionally while others are used as a flashback or a foreshadow. Before Beowulf 's short battle with Grendel, he speaks of how the bloodbath could turn out. Here he states: “If Grendel wins, it will be a gruesome day; he will glut himself on the Geats in the war-hall… he will carry me away as he goes to ground, gorged and bloodied; he will run gloating with my raw corpse and feed on it alone, in a cruel frenzy fouling his moor-nest” (lines 442-451). In this instance, the “story” is seen as a foreshadow, despite it being incorrect. Beowulf did not boast of his unknown fate being successful but rather accepted the fact he could and might die while battling the beast, this showed his humble being and gained him respect within Hrothgar’s
Rituals in Lord of the Flies The slogan “Kill the beast! Cut his throat! Spill his blood!” are chanted by the boys in William Golding’s novel Lord of the flies, while they decide to hunt after the ritual or do the ceremonial dance. The rituals are one of the most important elements in the story that had considerable influence on the establishment and disruption of boys’ group, and led to Simon’s death. Golding presents rituals represent different stuff under the dissimilar situations.
The people he captured would be gruesomely murdered. He impaled people and left their bodies on sticks in the yards around his castle. “His penchant for impaling his enemies on stakes in the ground and leaving them to die earned him the name Vlad the Impaler. He inflicted this type of torture on foreign and domestic enemies alike: notably, as he retreated from a battle in 1462, he left a field filled with thousands of impaled victims as a deterrent to pursuing Ottoman forces.” (Pallardy). “Vlad Dracula used all kind of methods of torture and execution, like nails in heads, scalping, cutting off of limbs, noses, ears and breasts, blinding, strangulation and skinning, burning, roasting and boiling alive, exposure to wild animals or mutilation of sexual organs.
Piggy and Simon are both killed by savages in the book. Simon is the first to be killed, and he is brutally murdered by Jack and his tribe when they mistake him for the beast, chanting “Kill the beast! Slit his throat! Spill his blood!” (152). The boys were so fixated with their chants and tribe that they don’t see the damage their doing, and savagery and evil soon take over.
Judging by his character he is a very cruel and wicked man. In my opinion, in the novel, the red sweater symbolizes hatred, anger, cruelty, rage, or even a person who you will fear to approach just by looking at him because in the novel he is characterized as being an evil person who hates dogs and beats them like in this quote when it says: “He was beaten; but he was not broken. He saw once for all, that he stood no chance against a man with a club. He learned the
From anything like Legal consequences to the drug user putting their addiction before their family. This relates to how Grandel ruined families by killing loved ones. Another angle of devastation is the physical and mental effects it can have on a person who abuses drugs. It can affect your overall health, certain brain functions and sometimes even cause death. This shows even more closely how similar it is to the horrifying monster Grendel, “Killing as often as he could, coming alone, bloodthirsty and horrible.” (pg.26, line 80-81); both monsters have the same goal.
Resonance from the guns roared as its dense smoke engulfed the blood-stained Reservation. The pungent odor from the corpses accumulated in the mass grave overwhelmed Chaska’s puny unfledged proboscis. Chaska’s mother and father were a part of that pile. His mother tried to save his father from dying, but the result was both of them getting shot and killed. Chaska was a timid and timorous eight-year-old boy with short black hair and a tanned colored body.
