After reading Egnar Allan Poe’s dramatic story “Hop Frog” many people were asking, “is Hop-Frog justified to do what he did?” People can argue about it all day, but I believe Hop-Frog is justified. The king was relentless in his attacks against Hop-frog, Hop-frog killed him out of self defense, Hop-frog had to get his life with Triappetta back to normal. Imagine being a cripple, dwarf, and a jester. Having just one of those stacked against you would devastate almost everyone on Earth.
In “Hop Frog” by Edgar Allan Poe, Hop Frog’s actions are justified throughout the short story. One way Hop Frog justifies his actions is because the king is mean to him. The king constantly belittles him. He makes fun of Hop Frog because of his disabilities. The king and his men give Hop Frog his nickname because he could only move with a leap and a wiggle of a movement.
Are Hop Frogs Actions Justified? Have you ever been mad at your boss, so mad that you just couldn’t take it anymore? Well in the short story “Hop-Frog” by Edgar Allan Po, that was pretty much the case. There are three distinct points why Hop-Frogs actions are justified. One of the biggest points is that the King never showed Hop-Frog the respect that he deserved.
Making a joke from his sadness. Furthermore, he was made a joke because of his disability. Most dwarfs during that time were jesters because of their disability. It is so downgrading that as a result of the way you were born you had your whole life figured out. Being a big joke to those in high power was the result of dwarfism.
The short story “Ransom of the red chief” is a low level comedy that uses hyperboles and comic situations to convey the idea that without full preparation the outcome of the situation can be unpleasant and unpredictable. The ransom red chief is a low level comedy because of the crude humor. The boy being mischievous and zany caused a lot of low comedy with the easy to follow storyline. “Red was sitting on bill’s chest with one hand holding his hair and the other a knife, a shriek came from old bill.”
Piggy cried out in terror: ‘My specs!’” (Golding 71). Piggy is broken inside when his glasses are broken because they are what he needs to be able to see.

This is suiting for the story, since there are many points along the plot where actions are taken that caused trouble. An example of this is when the King shoves Trippetta and throws the wine at her. For Hop-Frog, the disrespect is the turning point for his tolerance toward the King and the Court. Even though at the time he was intoxicated from the forced wine drinking, he was still able to come up with a mischievous plan that literally ruined the lives of the King and Court. Hop-Frog’s sadness comes from external sources, which is different from “Alone” and “The Raven, where the narrators deal with internal

Edgar Allan Poe creates this menacing tone by the repetition and description of his senses. In the killing the narrators explains that the eye of the old man is the reason why he killed him in the first place .The description of the old man’s “eye of a vulture- a pale blue eye, with an film over it. Whatever it fell upon me, my blood ran cold; and so by degrees”(1). The senses of the narrator helps to bring on the mood of menace into the story.
Edgar Allan Poe uses symbolism to portray the understanding of perverseness. When people, objects, places, or events have a meaning in themselves, but also stand for something else, they are considered symbols.

One example of symbolism is when the narrator went to a bar and discovered a cat similar to Pluto and followed him home. Poe states “The white patch was not the image of an awful - ghastly thing!
In different situations, people may need to rely on the views of others in order to make sure that they have a basic understanding towards the situation that they may face. Consequently, due to this dependency, many people whom may give out their views will also attempt to corrupt others, or provide a falsified truth in order to benefit themselves or make them look like that they were in the right.

Poe plays this out heavily, as he constantly seems to be in denial over his sanity within this mystery. From the beginning of the story, you would immediately feel a sense of uneasiness when the narrator
