You can 't be so cruel..." This shows that the kids were very spoiled and crying a lot for the nursery going down as the parents thought of it as vulgar and not right. This is showing us that you shouldn´t give way if you are making a point. Later on in the story, the kids killed the parents because they felt the parents were being unreasonable and wanted to keep the nursery. This shows that the kids spent so much time and got so attached and addicted to
The evil of the world is like Abigail, it spreads. It goes through everyone's minds, however it separates the strong from the weak. The weak being the ones who fall into fear and temptation to evil works. The strong being the ones who turn from the evil and stay strong with the pure, faithful and righteous thoughts. Abigail was weak enough to want revenge on Elizabeth Proctor and kill her so John could love Abigail.
Even in the creation’s acts of kindness towards the family, because of the family’s reaction to the creature, this allows Shelly to reinforce that man is both ‘so virtuous and magnificent’, but also ‘vicious and base’. Thus, inflicting injustice sets the evil of the story in motion, where evil is exacerbated by injustice committed against them, as seen in the case of the creature reacting to his isolation and rejection and Frankenstein in response to the murder of his friends and
To men in such a state the Devil sends Thoughts of this kind, and has a full permission To lure them on to sorrow and perdition; For this young man was utterly content To kill them both and never to repent” (246-251). The temptation of greed ended up killing the three men at the end of the tale.”The Pardoner's Tale” provides a clear understanding that greed is a sin we all have to battle with in our lives, whereas the moral of the wife of bath's tale applies to people doing bad things. This tale teaches the reader a lesson about greed and how it can overcome people, making them do bad
Bradbury took a specific moment in the story and illustrated it with precise details to create intensity. The long sentence, “They surged about her, caught her up and bore her, protesting, and then pleading, and then crying, back into a tunnel, a room, a closet, where they slammed and locked the door,” shows the students almost not knowing what they were doing, rushing through their actions (158). They are caught up in their jealousy and do not seem to see how their actions are hurting Margot. Bradbury uses this long sentence to show how out of control the children’s jealousy has become, as they take away the one thing that Margot craves. His sentence structure is not the only way he uses craft to develop this idea.
A choirboy is now chief of a war party; a military hero and husband is now a monster that everyone wants dead. While specific motivation and circumstances differ for the two of them, both become willing killers whose distrust and paranoia grow in proportion to the power they have seized. Both Macbeth and Lord of the Flies give insight to the fact that greed engulfs people into malicious tyrants with the characters that are portrayed in these two novels. Jack, from Lord of the Flies and Macbeth, from Macbeth have both shown the world a crucial lesson that power and ambition are the roots of all evil, as they carried out unethical action to achieve and maintain their respected
Mr. Ewell’s wrongdoings lead to the death of Tom Robinson, and later he himself was killed for his unjust actions. The mockingbird was symbolic of Tom’s true, pure heart, and his death was because of nothing but the inequities within society. Mr. Ewell’s sin caused sorrow and horror in Scout’s life, but it also lead to her realization that discrimination was wrong, something that Atticus wished for her to know all along. Further along in the story, Scout’s growth is proved when Atticus suggests sending Boo Radley to trial for killing Bob Ewell. Scout says, “‘Well, it’d be sort of like shootin’ a mockingbird, wouldn’t it?’” (276).
A contradiction that was found in the the text was when the children let Margot out of the closet. This was a contradiction because beforehand, they were all too happy to lock Margot in the closet. Text evidence that shows this is “Hey, everyone let's put her in the closet before teacher comes!” (Bradbury 130). Since they hated her so much, they even went so far to as imprison her in a closet, so this shows that they really did not like her. Another example of them being mean to her is “‘What’re you looking at?’ said William .
THE CHASM OF HATE Hatred acts as an all-consuming power that burns within a person and begs to be released. It rips the person apart from the inside out. When the final straw is eventually drawn, hate is the motive that spurs the darkest of actions. Hate stems from the desire and need for love and attention, but the inability to receive it. Thus, love can battle hate, but passion and drive must be present for either of these concepts to exist.
She hated Anse because she hated her situation. She felt everyone was against her and nothing mattered. Even having kids did not make her happier. Instead it just made her hate Anse even more. The kids and Anse violated her aloneness which she cherished.
