Law enforcement must decide what degree this specific murder is. Voluntary manslaughter, or second degree murder, is I believe most accurately describes Mary’s crime. In the heat of the moment, Mary seemed to go temporarily insane. After all, the person she loved the most has admitted he would want to leave her. It is stated in the story that she doesn’t feel anything after hearing Patrick’s secret.
Here, again, her human and flawed side is shown by Euripides. Unlike that of Euripies, Seneca’s Medea is sent exile without her children and he presents her murder of children as the pure brutality to satisfy and strenghten her vengeance. Medea has that idea of killing her children when Jason refuses to allow her to take children with her and thus she realizes how much Jason loves them. So she thinks that his great love for his children can bring him great pain with their
Even the malicious Abigail knew this, whether or not if she did respect her Puritan religion. The more people she killed, the less it meant to her. The town started to realize the horror taking place--even some of the girls. But Abigail no longer had any consideration for her sins and continued to persecute more and more innocent people. Abigail Williams proved to be the most heinous character throughout the entirety of the play.
One example is how is easily persuaded by Lady Macbeth to commit such a heinous crime, and murder their King. After, that their downfall begins because they are both so plagued by guilt it starts to affect them both mentally and physically. The first hallucination that Macbeth experienced was the floating dagger that he claimed to Lady Macbeth, led him to King Duncan the night he murdered him (Shakespeare, 2.1.40-46). Then when Macbeth returns to his wife after murdering King Duncan, he asks her if she has heard any strange noises. Macbeth then goes on to explain how, “There’s one did laugh in’s sleep, and one cried, ‘murder!’ That they did wake each other: I stood and heard them: but they did say their prayers and address’d them again to sleep” (Shakespeare, 2.2.28-31).
The thought of Jack the Ripper was discussed by a inspector named Abberline when the ripper murders were happening. The inspector thought of this because they need to think of every possible situation. The last person that was a victim to the ripper was Mary Kelly. After she was murdered her neighbor said that she saw Mary walking around and looking really sick and pale. This is where the theory started.
One quote that supports this is “I do sir. I believe she means to murder”. John says this because he knows Abigail’s true intention, and he knows she is seeking revenge. Another quote that supports her flaw is “Goody Proctor always keeps poppets”. This is Abigail’s attempt to blame Goody Proctor for the wound to her stomach.
In Medea, a surge of insanity purges her after she is betrayed by her husband Jason causing many cruel and harsh actions to follow from her. The ending result a murder scene. Is she really at blame for her actions and should she be punished? Believing that she is truly insane this would entail that she is completely innocent and therefore not to be punished. Thesis: Medea’s insanity which led her to killing her children suggests she let her emotions take control of her proving she is not at fault for her actions.
The speaker wants to kill her husband who is like a vampire to her, who tortured for years, so she does kill him, then she claims that if she killed her father first and then her husband, she will become the killer of two persons, so as we see she uses the hyperbole device to exaggerate with the description of her husband and his way to treat her with. As we see, the speaker “Sylvia Plath” wrote a poem with a lot of literary devices such; repetition, allusion and hyperbole that support the main theme of “death” which she is talking about it in the whole poem, when she mentions her desire to kill her father even if he was dead, and comparing her life with unimaginable suffer that the Jews had experienced during the WW II, even her will and desire to kill her husband that she pictures him as a vampire, who made her life like hell, so like we see she has the desire of “death” that is talking about it in the whole poem, and making it the main
Abortion is murder, it’s the worst thing anyone can do, though there are many reasons why women choose abortion. The killing of an innocent human being is wrong, even if that human being is yet to be born. The Federal Unborn Victims of Violence Act which was enacted to “protect unborn children from assault and murder” states that under federal law, anybody intentionally killing or attempting to kill an unborn child should be punished”..for intentionally killing or attempting to kill a human being. Abortion is the killing of a human being, which defines of God. The Bible does not draw a distinction between fetuses and babies...By the time it’s conceived he or she is recognized by God as demonstrated in Jeremiah 1:5, “Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb i sanctified thee..” abortions cause psychological damage.
Despite the fact that Mary Maloney, the main character in the story “Lamb to the Slaughter” by Roald Dahl, murders her husband, her actions can be justified and she should get away with it. First of all, based on Mary's shaken and dazed reaction to what her husband says, it is implied by the author that he wants a divorce even though she is already six months pregnant, which the narrator mentions in the beginning of the story. Although he seems uncomfortable and reluctant to hurt her feelings, it is not a valid enough reason to sympathize with him. Now that I have mentioned Mary being pregnant, let me also mention the fact that she will have to take care of the baby by herself. This puts her in a difficult spot as she is just a housewife, meaning
