In this quote, we see that Montresor’s intention is to kill Fortunato, rather than take him to taste the expensive wine. As the story goes on, we get a better picture of Montresor’s evil plan by linking the things that he has said in the beginning with him taking Fortunato deeper and deeper into the catacombs. In The Most Dangerous Game, we realize from very early on in the story that the General’s intention is to hunt, and ultimately kill Rainsford. In the story, the General says: “[The animal] must have courage, cunning, and, above all, it must be able to reason”, to which Rainsford’s answer was that no animal could reason. This quote is the first point in the story it is certain that Zaroff is a murderer.
The lord was so boastful and self centered that he couldn't stand ugly things, even if they were pretty before, so he demoted people and hide possessions that were no longer magnificent. The beautiful, magnificent drake the lord had captured became dull and “ he refused to to release the drake, ordering that the cage be put out of sight so he would be no longer be annoyed by the birds sad appearance”. (10). His overwhelming desire for more beautiful items rule by his decisions in the empire. The lord's greed brought loneliness, anger, and the thought he has the power to rule over

Tom decides to follow his conscience despite his devotion to his loyalty to Huck, his superstition, and his own personal safety. Before the courtroom, Muff Potter tells Tom and Huck “You’ve been mighty good to me boys-better’n anybody else in this town.
The barber also has his pride and life to consider. The story is written from the perspective of a barber who is secretly part of a rebellion against the government. The barber has a very crucial decision to make whether or not to kill Captain Torres who has executed many of his fellow rebel’s, or, to not kill him. The barber named “The Best in Town” is extremely precise, his code as a barber is to never spill one drop of his customer's blood.

We see his trust shift from Frank to Walter. It is clear to the audience who are the bad guys, but to ray it is something that is hard for him to believe.

(Walter leads ray to find evidence and finds exactly what he thought happened in the beginning.)

The slingshot that Hassan owns symbolizes Hassan being Amir’s tool. On page 77 during the rape scene, Amir had a moral dilemma about saving Hassan from getting raped or running away. Amir said “In the end, [he] ran.” This shows Amir’s true feelings towards Hassan. Amir made this choice and left Hassan proving his disloyalty towards Hassan because he only sees Hassan as a tool to retrieve the kite to get Baba’s approval. The pomegranate is also shown as a symbol in the book to represent Hassan’s loyalty towards Amir.
Juror 8 is a natural leader, and one by one he persuades the other jurors to accept his arguments through persistence, supposing the evidence and suggesting that there are possible explanations to the witness stories and evidence given for the murder case. Rose uses Juror 8 to exemplify that there are many who take the aspects of justice seriously and can decide on fair verdicts. He says that he cannot “send a boy off to die without talking about it first”, demonstrating the ethical qualities that some of humanity possesses. He is also able to assert the views of intolerance and also comprehends that “prejudice obscures the truth”. Therefore, through the playwright’s description of this character and his positive qualities, Rose is able to convey that humanity may possess certain attributes that may be corrupt to society, they have positive characteristics that contribute to accomplishing an unbiased and sincere
Banquo continues to be a foil of Macbeth, as even in his suspicious thoughts, his values remain important to him. His suspicion towards Macbeth and how he gains kingship does not weaken his loyalty to his friend. Macbeth’s solution is to murder those he suspects, but Banquo simply voices his opinion, allowing it to be known. He says, “Thou hast it now, king, Cawdor, Glamis, all, /… and I fear / Thou play’dst most foully for’t,” (III. i.

This is a great use of pathos used by Jacoby as it forces the reader to think about what they feel is more morally wrong, and he is hoping that they decide that jailing is worse than the public shaming of flogging. Jacoby makes a convincing argument in “Bring Back Flogging” using ethos, logos, and pathos to persuade the reader into agreeing that flogging a convict would be better than jailing them. Using cited, reliable information helps build his logical argument and his credibility as a writer simultaneously. Jacoby’s use of emotional appeal in this argument convinces the reader to agree with his view on the matter. He puts the three forms of appeal to effective use; therefore, his argument is
