For example, saying that Lizzie Borden killed her parents makes sense when he/ she says it, but there is a lot of evidence to prove she has done it. From the documents read, they report that a girl named Eli Bence saw Lizzie asking for a deadly poison called prussic acid, the night before the murders of Andrew and Abby Borden (Linder, 2004). Honestly, who else would she ask for poison? She totally killed her own parents!
The stages of separation began this journey. Beatrix's first step, the call to adventure, was the incident at the wedding chapel in Texas when the Deadly Viper Assassination Squad killed her whole wedding party and left her in a comatose state. When she woke up from the coma she realized her child was gone and assumed that her daughter had died. This infuriated Beatrix, and led her to start her journey to fulfill her vengeance. Beatrix was clearly motivated on revenge so there wasn’t a psychological component of the refusal of the call, but she did have a physical factor involved.
Beowulf is an epic poem about a brave heroic man that comes and helps a king get rid a monster. An epic poem is a story about someone who has heroic like ideas in a society. Beowulf is a story that was sung by the bards and scops because that would be the only thing that will be passed on even after his death. It was written by the Anglo-Saxons, who did not believe in the afterlife, unlike Christianity. So the warrior would have to do something that would let his memory be passed on.
The Christian influence in Beowulf’s epic adds certain meaning and connotations for the events that are happening within the story. Without it, many implications written would hold no meaning, and instead appear to be completely random and without any reason. In Beowulf’s fight against Grendel’s mother, Beowulf managed to survive a fatal blow due to miracles created by God (Seamus, pg 107). If Christianity is taken out and God is removed from the story, Beowulf’s survival would’ve been very unlikely or he was truly lucky. A moment after, however, Beowulf stumbled upon a lucky encounter once again; a godsend sword that is able to slay Grendel’s mother was just hanging around the cave walls (pg. 107-108).

Night, on the other hand, shows how some Jewish communities, due to the circumstance of their situation, would follow them to the death camps like sheep going to the slaughter. In Maus, when the Nazis decided to "finish out" the ghetto of Zawiercie, Tosha decides to take matters into her own hand: "Always Tosha carried around her neck some poison... she killed not only herself but also the three children". (Spiegelman 109) When reading this passage, high school students are able to understand the dire situation which is presented to Tosha: go with the Nazis and get gassed in the chambers, or take her life and the life of the children under her care.

Also, Lizzie burned the dress she wore on the day of the murder after she was asked to bring it in for evidence as there was an unidentified stain on the dress.

While there was a lack of evidence, the jurors were not convinced she could could commit a crime so violent
