Greed is one of the most destructive forces known to mankind and it can ruin our lives. We can all learn from stories when people were greedy and had to deal with the potentially deadly consequences. This theory is displayed in the short story “The Pardoner’s” Tale written by Geoffrey Chaucer when greed literally caused the main characters to die. The Pardoner’s Tale was the better story in my opinion because the story’s plot had a nice flow to it and kept the story moving, the theme hit me harder because that’s what the focus of the story was, and the author gave some interesting ways of making inanimate objects come to life and have an effect on the plot. It’s always easier to pay attention to a story that has a better flow to it and is easier to understand the plot because we are focused on that one idea and can learn more from it.
The time is set in a middle of a war where there are tank tracks frozen in the mud, and meteor looking holes in the ground caused by bombs. Greed wasThe story is based around a theme of what greed can cause, and this is one thing. People cause war because they want more for themselves (more territory) or they can do it to prove that they are better/right. The war’s energy is greed, take away that greed and there is no war, no deaths and no destruction. In Conclusion, Walter Van Tilburg Clark’s “The Portable Phonograph” is a great example of how greed can change things in an instant.

Which is the subject for my theme. Greed is such a dangerous sin because someone could get to the point where they would kill for what they desire. First, there are many parts of the story that prove the theme. this part especially because it really exhibits an image. “They walked down the hall of their soundproofed happy life
And remember—remove the rings and bracelets, and the jewelry in the bureau From these two quotes we can conclude that these two men are plotting a murder on someone who clearly has money due to the fact that they say “remove the rings and bracelets, and the jewelry.” When the man says this Mrs. Stevenson acts shocked, because that almost perfectly fits her description, a wealthy woman with lots money and jewelry.The way she in particular creates suspense is the way she reacts to the plot. When she becomes shocked, so do the viewers creating a Shockwave of shocked people wondering who that diabolical "client” is. Our client wishes it to look like a simple

“And then Kino’s brain cleared from its red concentration and he knew the sound - the keening, moaning, rising hysterical cry from the little cave in the side of the stone mountain, the cry of death.” (page 87). This quote states that Coyotito was killed, while Juana and Kino were running away. They were running away because Kino had killed someone, who was trying to steal the pearl. Kino was the one who in reality killed Coyotito. The pearl was the reason why everything bad started happening to Kino and his family.
