Homers comparison of Odysseus' appearance as "caked in blood like a mountain lion"( Homer 390) shows how the suitors met a gruesome and deserving death by Greek society. The blood of the suitors, described as having been caked and collected on Odysseus' persona, is a symbol of justification that the Greek society gained for the suitors abusement of xenia. Homer’s representation of a mountain lion as Odysseus is describing indirectly how the suitors were hunted like prey by a stealthy and strong individual. A mountain lion is careful and patient in the killing of their prey: this enhances how Odysseus would take the necessary time needed for the suitors to pay with their lives. The abusement of Xenia is not taken lightly and individuals will be punished by a dishonorable
The shadow self archetype represents the traits that one doesn’t like in themselves or even tries to cover up. The shadow self of Pi is especially shown when Pi retells his story toward the end of the book. His story reveals that instead of the tiger eating the hyena, since Pi is revealed as Richard Parker, Pi really killed and ate the french cook. This is quite surprising since Pi is a vegetarian but his will to live and anger at the chef for killing one close to Pi overcomes him. We also see this is a shadow self since Pi used a tiger to describe that part of himself instead of admitting it was him.
In Hamlet, the king is killed during his sleep by Claudius pouring poison in his ear to make it look like a death of natural causes. In The Lion King, Mufasa is killed when ,Scar, threw his paws off the cliff and a stampede of antelope trample his body.

In the movie, The Lion King, Scar scares Simba into leaving the kingdom and never returning, in that case, it can be said that Simba chose to take Scar’s advise and leave on his
This idea can be seen in the poem when a man steals the jewels and gold from the dragon. " A man stumbled on The entrance, went in, discovered the ancient Treasure, the pagan jewels and gold... stole a gem-studded cup and fled" (2213-2218). Any person who gets any of their possession stolen, will get angry and try to get it back. The dragon, who loves his treasure, does the same. When Beowulf fights the dragon, he gets severely wounded, and is on his death bed.
The audience is first introduced to Richard Parker in a low angle shot of him killing the hyena to instil the tiger’s dominance and power. This symbolic characterisation allowed Pi to censor his reality, and adapt to the primitive necessities required for his survival. This is surprising to even Pi himself, and the taming scene exemplifies his will to supress the tiger and his metaphorical primal instincts. Lee again uses a high angle shot to depict Richard Parker’s supremacy over the weak, primordial Pi furthering the notion of Pi’s inability to tame the tiger. This incapability to tame Richard Parker epitomises his loss of conscious control due to extrinsic forces, which is scary and frightening for Pi.
The Daily Mail concluded " So perhaps the dogs jumped to their deaths because they picked up on some human. " Some point to the idea of the graveyard of the whales, or the secret place in the jungle where the elephants all go to die, as if they are precedents for a specific location favored by dogs to end their lives. Most popular tellings of the Overtoun Bridge legend mention ghosts that are said to reside at Overtoun House, postulating that perhaps they spook the dogs or somehow haunt them into wanting to jump. It 's also commonly noted that a disturbed man once threw his young son off the bridge, and proposed that this indicates some force affects the mind there and compels the dogs to jump.
In the story, the theme of jealousy is introduced through the external conflict expressed in the text. This story takes place in the Middle Ages, during which a physical trial would determine the fate of the convicted. The trials of the guilty ended in violence because it was believed that God only saved the innocent, so when the king inadvertently “...opened the one [door], there came out of it a hungry tiger, the fiercest and most cruel that could be procured, which immediately sprang upon [the convicted], and tore him to pieces as a punishment for his guilt” (299). The information about the cruelty of the affair provided in the excerpt gives the reader insight to the princess’s hesitance to feeding the youth to the lion and the king’s motives to sending the youth to a trial
