But many see him still as a tragic hero because his flaw is what allowed him to proceed with the killing. In conclusion, although some believe that Macbeth is aware of what he is doing for himself Macbeth is a tragic hero.

When Curley’s wife tells Lennie to feel her hair, it results in him grabbing her, and snapping her neck without meaning to do so.

One who would read the story would tell you that the whole thing is about revenge and it can be looked at as revenge twists the mind of a person who is vengeful, to begin with, or as revenge is a driving force behind a person going so far as to commit a murder. Such a person might be so obsessed with vengeance that he imagines reasons to obtain it are the right doing. In this story, Montresor 's family prides itself on leaving no insult unavenged. Montresor 's obsession with this has perhaps made him imagine that Fortunato has insulted his family just so that he, Montresor, has something to try his family 's pride on. As when the narrator says ‘’THE thousand injuries of
The poison curdled old Hamlet’s blood and caused sores all over his body. The rumours spread around was that he was bite by a poisonous snake. Fratricide is shown from old Hamlet killing his brother Claudius. Homicide Ophelia’s father, Polonius, is murdered from Hamlet, Hamlet had no intention on killing Polonius he thought it Claudius was the one behind the tapestry spying on Gertrude. Gertrude called Hamlet to her chamber to talk about how he offended his stepfather, Claudius.
He was to the point where he thought it would just be easier to die than to live with all these struggles. Hamlet’s uncle Claudius killed his father which put a huge burden on his shoulders because he loved his father so much. What made it even worse was his mom, Gertrude, ended up marrying Claudius short after King Hamlet 's death. After the king was murdered, Hamlet saw his father’s “ghost” which told him that Claudius was in fact the one that killed him and that he wanted Hamlet to seek revenge for him by killing Claudius, but not to punish his mother for remarrying. He said it is not his place to do so and that heaven will judge her when it comes time.
People choose forgiveness because they want to release the initial offender from their guilt and past action to form a better relationship with them. As Chernoff discusses, "When we release others from the penalties of their actions, we create a space where our own thoughtless actions against others can be forgiven as well”(1). The quote above explains how forgiving others can allow for a better relationship based off of forgiveness between the initial offender and the avenger. People forgive because they see it as the right thing to do. In the text, "In reality, I was just a man who got somebody mad-- mad enough to want to kill him-- and survived it.
Hamlet describes his hatred towards his mother when he said, “O, God! a beast, that wants discourse of reason, /would have mourn'd longer married with my/ uncle, My father's brother, but no /more like my father”. (Scott et al. 7). Furthermore, in the story betrayal was shown when hamlets talk to the ghost and discover that the ghost is father telling him that Claudius has killed him by poisoning him in the ear.
There is a lot of religious symbolism in O’Conner’s story. I saw the confrontation between the Misfit and the grandmother was full of it. For instance, the grandmother insisted that he was really good…like Jesus. What the Misfit meant by saying “if it had been somebody there to shoot her every minute of her life”—he meant that the grandmother would have been good all her life if he had been there to shoot her. The grandmother’s final good act was that she had recognized the evil in him and was able to pity him.
The characters in Hamlet were misled in the same way because they had poison poured into their ears. This is explained by the Ghost when Hamlet learns of his father being murdered in Act 1 Scene 5, in lines 35 -39, “’Tis given out that, sleeping in my orchard, A serpent stung me. So the whole ear of Denmark Is by a forged process of my death Rankly abused. But know, thou noble youth, The serpent that did sting thy father’s life . Now wears his crown.” 2) The soliloquies that Hamlet provides over the sequence of the entire play allows us to distinguish what Hamlet was thinking about and display how he was losing his sanity.
Both of the narrators were so arrogant, that they both caused the downfall of their character. The narrator in The Black Cat would have gotten away scott-free, but he wanted to brag on his wall building skills so while he was tooting his own horn, he accidentally turned himself in by causing the wall to fall, and his dead wife to fall out. The narrator in The Tell Tale Heart also would have gotten away scott-free if wasn’t so arrogant and wanted to also show off his great “burying a corpse skills”. But alas, his conscience ended up getting the better of him and he turned himself in. Both stories also involve the senseless murder of a one eyed being, whether it be a cat or a human.
George makes the decision to kill Lennie because might not be able to get away so he would get beat up for killing Curley’s wife, he doesn’t want Lennie to kill anything else so he takes his life. Lennie does many bad things that lead to his death. Before the novel starts it talks about how Lennie frightened a woman so they got ran out of Weed “They run us out of Weed”, (Steinbeck 91). This leads to many more mistakes that Lennie makes which affects
