When Napoleon is starting to gain power, he attempts to appeal to the animals’ needs and desires. However, later on he morphs into a brutal murderer when he pressures the animals into confessing their crimes, whether they were true or not. Later, “when they had finished their confession, the dogs promptly tore their throats out, and in a terrible voice Napoleon demanded whether any other animal had anything to confess… When it was all over, the remaining animals, except for the pigs and dogs, crept away in a body. They were shaken and miserable” (Orwell 84). This indirectly characterizes Napoleon as a vice-ridden dictator who utterly shatters the animals’ last bits of hope for a safe and equal society.
He then leaves the spot where the murder was committed and searches for a secluded hiding place and he finds a barn. In the barn the creature comes across a young woman, who is Justine Moritz. The monster decides that she will suffer for the murder that he committed because he will always deprived of the delights that would come from being loved, and someone of her beauty would never feel the same pain that he feels (Shelley 127). The creature even states that it was the lessons of Felix DeLacey and duplicity of man which he learns his mischievous ways, thus all his awakenings and the knowledge has resulted in the creature resorting to savage
As the animals believe that the world outside is chaotic and dangerous, they think that their best option is to stay on the farm. Napoleon also forces the animals to comply using fear, and they gain a feeling of security by following the rules of the farm. On Napoleon’s orders, “the dogs promptly tore their throats out”(Orwell 84). The animals are all highly motivated to be obedient to Napoleon, as he begins to kill animals that go against his wishes. The dogs killed several pigs that had been critical of Napoleon, which provided a strong example of what the animals should not do.
An eye for an eye or the law of retaliation is the principle most people live their lives by. For the characters in Frankenstein, this concept is apparent as the main character, Victor, creates a monster and instantly abandons him which sets off the chain of events revolving around revenge. However, as Gandhi once stated, “an eye for an eye only ends up making the whole world blind” (Gandhi). Throughout the novel, the creature and Victor engage in a recurring cycle of vengeance, but these acts of revenge are bittersweet as in the end it destroys both of them. In the novel Frankenstein, Mary Shelley reveals how revenge consumes and destroys those who surrender to it.

When, in all reality, each of them is capable of having the beast is inside of them the whole time as Piggy explains in the following quote. “I know there isn 't no beast—not with claws and all that I mean—but I know there isn 't no fear either. Unless we get frightened of people." (Golding 64) Finally, this fear drives them to kill Simon and Piggy, and it drives them to attempt to kill Ralph.
The primitive behavior Jack showcases are amplified as he continues to hunt for pigs and neglect the opportunities to get off the island. This behavior then begins to come in the form of human savagery as he tortures those in Ralph’s camp and kills Simon and Piggy. Ultimately, the murder of Simon and Piggy is the peak of the Jack’s savagery. To imagine a group of children ages 6-14 murder two children out of sport is chilling. The book describes the murder of the children without even identifying who it is by describing the victim like an animal or beast, “The sticks fell and the mouth of the new circle crunched and screamed.

However, he comes dangerously close to getting hit by one of their spears, so he instinctively sticks his spear through the thicket and manages to wound one of the hunters. After doing so, he hears one of the savages say, “See? I told you—he’s dangerous” (194). Even though Ralph is only trying to protect himself, his attack is not seen as self defense, but rather as an assault on the group. This portrayal justifies attacking Ralph by very clearly establishing him as an enemy of the group who is threatening their way of life.

This proves how one should be careful with how they could offend someone with just words, because people do not always know how someone will react to their words, thus proving the old saying “hell hath no fury like a woman scorned”. This event becomes a crucial point in the story and also sets up Enkidu’s death. In the Odyssey Odysseus murders almost everyone, which shows how powerful of a human being he is.
