In this hunt Ralph trails behind Jack and his group when they are looking for a pig. He is overwhelmed with excitement when he knicks a pig in the snout. Ralph realizes he lost his humanity while on the hunt and it confuses him. Another instance of Ralph being influenced by fear into doing inhuman things is the scene where Simon is murdered.
This also indicates that Beowulf kills for the purpose of battle and avenging the lives lost at the hands of Grendel. Lastly, we must analyze the monsters in the poem and how they are different and similar to the hero. Grendel is a chaotic monster that comes to Heorot Hall each evening to attack and feast on King Hrothgar’s people (page 44, lines 115-25). Grendel’s actions of killing demonstrate to the reader that he does not do this for any higher purpose other than to cause chaos, meaning he has no value for honor.
The slaughtering of the animals, would of course fill the rest of the animals with even more fear than before. It would have been known then that the punishment of disobedience to Napoleon would simply result in
This is epitomized in his vicious and thoughtless attack on the sow, during which he, “…was on top of the sow, stabbing downwards with his knife” (Golding, 135), exhibiting his brutal nature. His merciless assault on her was described by Henningfeld as, “…rife with sexual overtones”, displaying his completely impulse-controlled demeanor that shows no consideration for any logical thoughts. His abandonment of logic is also shown through the killing of the sow due to the strategic value of the sow due to her ability to bear more pigs for them to eat. However, due to Jack’s uninhibited impulses and abandoned logic especially when hunting, he has removed a potential asset to their survival. Therefore, because of his actions guided solely by sadistic and irrational impulses which aim for their own complete gratification, Jack is the embodiment of Id in the
The prolonged time they are on the island, the more they start to slaughter. We first see this in chapter 4, when the boys go out and terminate a boar. The boys persistently chant, “‘kill the pig! Cut his throat! Kill the pig!

The Creature’s feelings of rejection from society and the abandonment from Victor compel him to use violence and seek revenge. In so, the Creature ends up killing a great many of people throughout the story, some of which include: Victor’s younger brother William, Justine Moritz, Victor’s close friend Henry Clerval, and Victor’s soon to be wife Elizabeth Lavenza. Many would say that the story of “Frankenstein” from the start sets out to make the creature seem to be naturally evil and a monstrosity of a thing which is directly the cause of its uncontrollable bloodthirstiness, but I believe this to not be the case. Although the Creature behaves viciously and murders several people, he is not inherently evil or malicious. It is because of the human relationships he endured and the consequences of a neglected psycho-social responsibility that drove him to do such
The primitive behavior Jack showcases are amplified as he continues to hunt for pigs and neglect the opportunities to get off the island. This behavior then begins to come in the form of human savagery as he tortures those in Ralph’s camp and kills Simon and Piggy. Ultimately, the murder of Simon and Piggy is the peak of the Jack’s savagery. To imagine a group of children ages 6-14 murder two children out of sport is chilling. The book describes the murder of the children without even identifying who it is by describing the victim like an animal or beast, “The sticks fell and the mouth of the new circle crunched and screamed.
Since Buck kills the indians before they killed him it is kill or be killed.. After everything calms down, Buck hears wolves coming and charges them. he hates wild dogs from the wild husky incident.

That is when the images of these dogs became so intense that even the people who owned one of them would be affected. These people would then euthanize their dogs in fear that they would turn against them (Delise 97).
Therefore, the creature seeks for revenge against his creator. The creature murders Victor’s wife just like Victor killed his mate. In consequence of this, Victor starts to pursuing him in order to kill him. However, the creature easily escapes from him.

This shows him being misunderstood as he only wanted to become friends with anybody he could, but he was just assaulted instead. The monster eventually begins to become self-destructive and says he will get revenge on all mankind and he will kill all of Frankenstein 's family, even after he caused the death of four others (122). Eventually, Frankenstein dies and the monster goes to see his dead body. The monster is immediately filled with regret and explains how he is truly sorry for everything that he has done and that he knows there is no way for him to fix all the mistakes he has made (180).
