The same girl he did work for every day started a trial against him saying he raped her. Her claim should have been disproven in many ways, there was enough evidence to contradict it but the jury is so racist they look right past it. Tom was found guilty and sent to Enfield Prison Farm waiting for an appeal even though he shouldn’t have been there in the first place. Finally, as Tom was in that prison he got sick and tired of waiting for an appeal so he made a run for it, and was shot 17 times to be stopped. This ends up killing him and once the news makes it to the town it just rolls off their shoulders.
Without coming clean” (Wiesenthal 53). It indicates that Karl really sought for redemption before his final breathe. Simon became his last chance to make everything back into right track and requested a peaceful death. Another instance demonstrated Karl’s repentance was that he remembered he shot the family to death when they jumping out from the window of the burning house. That image remained in his mind and tortured him mentally until his very last second of life.
I heard many things in hell.” (1). Perhaps, if he could things from hell, he could have heard bad things about the old man. He proceeded to tell the reader, “He had the eye of a vulture --a pale blue eye, with a film over it. Whenever it fell upon me, my blood ran cold; and so by degrees --very gradually --I made up my mind to take the life of the old man, and thus rid myself of the eye forever” (Poe 2) Since his reasoning is completely illogical, the reader can infer that he is mentally unstable. The narrator’s motive and style of execution for the murder is rather strange.
Many problems in Amir’s life are unwittingly caused by Hassan. For instance, in his childhood, Amir is constantly competing with Hassan for Baba’s attention and love. This leads to his lack of action when he witnesses Hassan’s rape. His regret for not interfering when it happened and hiding his misguided choice infect his mind even in his adult life six years later when he moves to America. With a few exceptions, people simultaneously embody evil and good in their life; Hosseini demonstrates this with Amir, who is convinced that he himself is evil, and spends most of the book struggling to redeem himself so he can finally realize he is not wicked after all.

Plus, when Melinda, the little girl, first sees Drummond, she gasps and exclaims fearfully, “It’s the Devil!” (36) Drummond’s character also seems very unsympathetic at the beginning of the book. When he gets Brady on the stand, he ruthlessly batters him with questions and even goes so far as to embarrass and mock Brady. For example, Drummond says, “Extend the Testaments! Let us have a Book of Brady! We shall hex the Pentateuch and slip you in neatly between Numbers and Deuteronomy!” (101) These words, directed at Brady from Drummond, are rather unnecessary and cruel on Drummond’s part.

He lived the rest of his life in nightmares and fears which denounced his actions. He realized how unscrupulous his actions were and his souls is long huanted by it. After the murder, he does not dare to put the dagger back. We could see, from this point, The warrior and Duncan’s “worthiest cousin” (1.4.15) is so terrified by his own action that a sound would scare him. While he is haunted by guilt, Macbeth has to secure his throne by murdering Banquo and Fleance.
He spent countless days, even years, doing everything he could to hide the affair from the town and his congregation, in order to maintain his power and elite status within the community. By burying his sins deeper and deeper within his heart, Dimmesdale only made the guilt and regret that oppressed his mind stronger. Throughout the book, Hawthorne used the metaphor of a prison to represent the mental effects of Dimmesdale’s sins isolating him from the world and ultimately driving him insane. He chose the prison as a symbol because many criminals go insane within their jail cell due to the constant isolation that forces them to become trapped within their own mind and heart, where they are left to face the constant guilt and regret from their sins. Hawthorne brilliantly expounded upon this metaphor and symbol in relation to Dimmesdale’s life when he wrote, “...the wooden jail was already marked with weather-stains and other indications of age, which gave a yet darker aspect to its beetle-browed and gloomy front”(Hawthorne 45).
