The violence, though it takes place off stage, is described as being very gory and murderous. Macbeth is a very skilled warrior and begins to take pleasure in killing people. Violence begins to completely consume the thoughts and actions of Macbeth. After killing Duncan, Macbeth realizes what he has done as he sees the blood scattered against his robes. He has become king and now will not be usurped of his power, at least not without a fight.
To kill a mockingbird has the theme it is important to recognize all humans deserve respect regardless of their place society. Not all citizens of Maycomb weren't treated equally and with respect. For instance Arthur, “Boo” Radley was treated unequally and badly because no one knew about him so they began with rumors and pictured as an evil monster. Bob Ewell was born into racism and abuse and people judge him thinking he wants to do what he does but he was raised this way. And last but not least Tom Robinson was disrespected not because he did something but due to the color of his
An example of the effect the feud has on others is Mercutio. Mercutio is Romeo’s best friend who always tries to cheer him up. However when he is fatally wounded by Tybalt in a fight between Tybalt and Romeo he tells them, “A plague o’both your houses!” (3.1.106).

The Nazis did not care how they treated their own. They shot people who had a soul just like they did. They burned people that were human beings just like they were. They beat people who were insubordinate because they were so ‘perfect’. Humans deserve to be treated like humans and not like objects or
Because Victor turns a blind eye to the creation, he vows revenge against him and all the people Victor loves. Even though the man receives little guidance and support, he becomes a monster similar to Victor because of his choices to do evil: murder and take revenge. Critic Magill explains, “His revenge, although excessive, is motivated” (322). The creation could have the decency to move on with his life, but one factor prevents him. His appearance restrains him from having a normal life despite the capacity for love and affection he harbors in his heart.
As mentioned earlier, Bob Ewell blatantly lies about Tom’s actions several times throughout the trial, which ultimately results in Tom’s death. Even if Bob did not directly kill Tom, the blood is most certainly on his hands. Mr. Ewell’s actions clearly show how hatred and prejudice can drive anyone to extreme measures, such as lying so an innocent man will die. To get revenge on Atticus for defending Tom, Ewell attempts to kill Jem and Scout. If Boo Radley did not intercede, Ewell would have been successful.
Murder is never justifiable and as a result of not having a relationship where Victor teaches the creature right from wrong, the creature does all he knows; which is hurting people. An identical reaction is seen in John Sharry’s article about a misbehaving four-year-old, “When I ask him why he does this he says he is angry and mad” (1). Even though their response to what they feel is drastically different, both the boy and the creature react in anger, which is interestingly suggesting that the creature is comparable to a
Lady Macbeth’s constant questioning of his manhood early on lead to an even greater amount of pressure on Macbeth to gain power through any means necessary. As stated by 19th century English writer Lord Acton, “Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely.” Macbeth starts as a man who has been praised for murder he committed on the battlefield and soon becomes the very enemy he originally fought against by rebelling against higher power. With his inherited power Macbeth gains the access to do whatever he wants with those who oppose him.
As a result he used his power to take over the world. Alexander the Great is a villain because he murdered and tortured innocent people and took over civilizations against their free will. Alexander the Great is a villain because he murdered and tortured innocent people. Alexander has killed people because he wanted to be known as great, but heroes do not kill innocent people, they save them.
Everybody will eventually want revenge on an old friend or just someone they know. Montressor, similar to many people in the world, wants revenge on one of his old friends, Fortunato. The story opens with, “The thousand injuries of Fortunato I had borne as best I could; but when he ventured upon insult, I vowed revenge” (Poe 212). In this statement, Montressor tells the reader what the cause of his revenge against Fortunato is. “The Cask of Amontillado”, written by Edgar Allen Poe, tells the story of how Montressor brings Fortunato into the catacombs to bury him alive.

He is directed by two compelling desires in which play a role in introducing him to the divergences between good and evil.
