After most people hear what Perry has gone through you immediately give him a get out of jail free card right? You think that since he had a difficult upbringing he should be exempt from receiving the death penalty? Although you may think this, this is certainly not an excuse for such a violent act. Throughout In Cold Blood, Capote attempts to portray to the reader that Smith in a way should be exempt from the crime he commited and how one should not blame it on Smith himself, but his psychological background. Specifically when Al Dewey, the head of the Clutter murder investigation, states how the crime was not in fact Smiths fault.
Some people believe that the murder committed by Richard Strout can be considered more serious because of his act of passion and his lackadaisical style of living without worrying about his future. I think that Matt Folwer’s murder is worse due to the fact he acted in a revengeful manner, there was a precise plan, and because of his ability to deliberately disobey his conscience. By seeking revenge against Richard Strout for the murder of his son Frank, Matt acted in such a manner because he knew his son’s wrongful death was out of spite, and also for the overall sanity and protection his wife, Ruth. Frank Folwer was a genuine human who caught an eye for the wrong woman, Mary Ann Strout, Richard’s soon-to-be ex. Frank had treated Mary Ann better than Richard had
OMAM At the end of the book Lennie killed curly’s wife, by snapping her neck. All because he wanted her to be quite. He didn’t mean to, he just didn’t know his own strength because of his mental illness it keeps him from knowing reality. So I think George shouldn’t have killed him. George shouldn’t have killed Lennie, because there could have been another solution to what he did.
Clearly he did not have the right coping skills and support to teach him how to deal with them. He took his feelings out on other people and their families thinking it was just a way of revenge and that it was normal. Which is why we call Allan a serial killer and a sociopath. The definition of a serial killer is a person who murders 3 or more people. A sociopath is someone who kills or harms another person or thing without feeling any
They share a good dream. They love one another” (Scarseth 3). George killed Lennie out of love because he knew Lennie would suffer if he lived longer. Even though the action was bad, George decided it was best to kill Lennie to protect him. He knew that if Lennie was still alive, he would suffer greatly for two reasons: Curley wanted to avenge his wife and eventually Lennie would be sent to jail.
From the quote there is perceptible evidence that Mary Maloney has evidently killed her husband and feels no regret towards it. Doing the unthinkable crime of murder is one thing, but not being hurt by the death of your own husband, is baleful enough. Moreover, Mary hid the truth from, all with the help
Although Capote describes the Clutters as a symbolic representation of a perfect family, his importance is to show the difference of lifestyles from Perry coming from broken homes to the Clutters home therefore; he contends family life is a key determinant that can affect a person, later in life. Capote uses an anecdote to help his readers formulate where Perry came from and how he became abnormal. After Perry made an “admission he hated to make” of himself and Dick having to be crazy, after killing a perfect family, Capote says: “His mother an alcoholic, had strangled to death on her own vomit. Of her children two sons and two daughters, only the young girl, Barbara, had entered ordinary life, married, begun raising a family. Fern the other daughter, jumped out the window of a San Francisco hotel.
One piece of evidence that supports this claim is from “Ohio Man’s Shooting Of Ailing Wife Raises Questions About ‘Mercy Killings.” One quote is “...meant only to end the suffering of his wife, Barbara, 65.” This relates to Of Mice and Men because she was going to die anyway and he wanted to end her suffering. This is exactly what George wanted for Lennie. If he didn’t kill him Curley would’ve killed him and then he would’ve died without dignity. There are two reasons Curley wants to kill Lennie. The first reason is because he is a big guy, and Curley hates big guys.
He wanted to prove how unworthy he is to be Thane of Cawdor. Even though he did not physically kill him by himself, he still committed a crime. Macbeth did not desire to kill his own best friend or he will feel a sympathy of turning back on killing him. Banquo’s ghost created a scene that determined he was guilty of shooting down his loyal friend for no good
When he took his final breath he was shot by mistake. For the person who shot him had in mind that he was the killer of his wife but it was none other than Daisy herself, but Gatsby took the blame for the death anyways and ended up dying for his love. Jay Gatsby was deeply in love with Daisy Buchanan, he went to get measures to get everything for her but in the end just to have it turn to dust. His influence on people made them question who he was, his grand master plan was his own tragic flaw, and his fall from grace was his way out of all the lies he told. He has been spared all the hate that
