The town’s tone towards Dolphus Raymond is that they are disgusted by him, but since he is a drunk man who has no control over his choices it’s okay. He pretends to be a drunk man to give the town of Maycomb justification as to why he does what he does, “Mr. Dolphus Raymond lurched by on his thoroughbred. “‘Don’t see how he stays in the saddle,”’ murmured Jem. “‘How c’n you stand to get drunk ‘fore eight in the morning?’”(Lee 160).
The narrator in “The Tell-Tale Heart” thought he was hearing the guy’s heart beat after he had killed him. This couldn’t be possible because he cut the guy up and there was no way that his heart could still be beating. He was hearing this “heart-beat” because he was feeling guilty from killing the old man. “...it is the beating of his hideous heart.” The people in the “The Masque of the Red Death” thought they were seeing a masked person at the party that was killing everyone but in my opinion I think they were imaging it. I think they were imaging it because it never describes the person in the story.
Without them it would just be another book, without any real lesson on racism and the evils that pertain to it (Born to Trouble). As a realist, Twain is faithfully representing the cruel mindset of the 1860s-80s no matter how ugly it appears on text. It is this brutal realism that creates the controversy
Paul Haven was the author of the story above and it never provides any actaul words saying that Skidmore did the crime of murdering his brother by poisoning the pretzel he ate, but it does provide many facts of how it most likely was him and that is what made me think it was Skidmore. I will explain what in the story of "The Curse of The Poisoned Pretzel," made me believe that SKimore killed Macnchester to get the money. A case of a man murdered by his brother was never brought to justice, it was said to have ended by a simple choking hazard when really it was an inncident of an insane twisted family member. In the excerpt from the story, "The Curse of the Poisoned Pretzel," the author Paul Haven indirectly expresses his thoughts about the killing of the character named Manchester. Support 1: To start it all off, Manchester was a three hundred pound basebal loving, sweet treat addict with a kind heart.
The Pardoner begins his tale by describing people who spend their lives drinking and engaging themselves in other forms of excessive wrong-doings. The Pardoner decides to interrupt the meeting of the drunken people and tells them that what they are doing is gluttony. The Pardoner describes gluttony as what caused the downfall of mankind in Eden. The next thing that the Pardoner criticizes is gambling, he claims that this act destroys the wealth and power of all men. The third and final thing that the Pardoner criticizes is cursing.
His death remains a mystery, and historians have argued over what may have happened since the day it occurred. Some argue that the cause of his death was beating. Others say that it was due to a practice called “Cooping.” This is where crooked politicians hire goons to kidnap someone and force them to vote for the same candidate multiple times in different guises. This would explain why Poe turned up in clothes that did not belong to him. Another theory is that he was too depressed to live, and drank himself to death.
The cynical waiter didn 't even pause to think what the deaf old man could have been going through that might have led to his attempted suicide. What was keeping the old man up and pounding back brandy all night? No one cared enough to show any empathy or concern. No one except perhaps, the unhurried waiter. To top it off with the horrid way in which they are speaking to one another, the cynical waiter approaches the old man to serve him more brandy and says "you should have killed yourself last week" (p. 154).
The victim then said, “No voice there cried ‘stay’ for me in the empty square” (poem). The hangman said he only had the chance to keep murdering people because nobody stood up and said something about it. It is ironic that the victim said nobody cried for me because when other people were getting hanged he didn’t say anything either. This leads to the bystander effect because the people of the town did not want to say anything since maybe someone else could have said
He wasn 't in control of who would beat him up but when he spent his money on only drink and not clothes or housing, made everyone around him, not enjoy the company he was. When he was drunk, he was mean to everyone. A time that begins when he is drunk was that when Ah Q spotted a nun. All he could think of from the night before was someone telling him that he needed a woman. And then he told her that she should sleep with him.
I do think that the eye symbolize the issue that the has narrator has with his inner vision. Which he refuses to accept that he is sick and mentally unstable. Because the narrator did describe the eye as “evil” and the eye of “vulture”, and these words does summarize the narrator 's identity pretty much. Since he did kill the old man without any real reason and dismembers his body and even courageously let the police sit and have a conversation over the old man’s corpse. Furthermore he did stalk the old man before he killed him and showed no sympathy nor any human emotion.
