The consequences of Hammurabi’s law code can be pretty terrifying because most of the punishment involved death. Hammurabi’s law code also comprise of, “If a man take a woman to wife, but have no intercourse with her, this woman is no wife to him.” The Amorite king made it explicit that married couples not having intercourse also means to file divorce papers. Hammurabi does not accept the fact that a married couple is a married couple, unless they have intercourse. The punishment of this action is very light compared to most of his usual consequences. Hammurabi showed no mercy under his firmly set law codes.
Examples of both just and unjust can be found in the area of Property Law. The first law is “If a man has broken through the wall( to rob) a house, they shall put him to death and pierce him, or hang him in the hole in the wall which he has made.” This law is fair, because the law is protecting the weak from the strong which Hammurabi was trying to do. This law is very harsh and it would prevent someone from theft if they were going to be put to death. The Second, is “If a man has borrowed money to plant his fields and a storm has flooded his field or carried away the crop,... in that year he does not have to pay his creditor.” This example shows that Hammurabi’s code was just because the a citizen should not be punished for things that are out of their control. This law does not say that the man does not need to repay the money, it just gives them time to recover from disaster.

When the main character Rainsford becomes the very thing he did not want it to become because the evil ways of the island have changed his views for the worst. The shift in Rainsfords views is shown many time throughout the text but greatly when the narrator states “ Rainsford decided he had never slept in a better bed” (Connell 15).

This death was more intimate than a singular stab and it requires Myers to be in closer vicinity. Myers chose to kill her this way because it is more punishable for a woman to act that way than a man, with a man it is almost expected. In the Novel Men, Women, and Chainsaws: Gender in the Modern Horror Film, by Carol L Clover, it is mentioned that the fact that Bob was still punished regardless of to what extent has been the standard for boys in other horror movies as well, "the numbers are not equal, and the scenes not equally charges; but the fact remains that in most slasher films after 1978 (following Halloween), men and boys who go after 'wrong ' sex also die" (Clover, 34). The misogyny displayed by Myers reflects the expectation of women in the 70s. Women had to be prim and proper and it was looked down upon by conservatives to engage in any inappropriate
