He has mentally tortured Dimmesdale; obsessed with wanting him to suffer more that he has. Chillingworth wants him to live with guilt the rest of his life. Chillingworth doesn’t even love Hester anymore, but he continues to torture Dimmesdale because he wants him to live with guilt the rest of his life. Chillingworth is an evil character that seems worse than Dimmesdale. Even though Chillingworth didn’t commit the crime
In 1868, he became leader of Tammany Hall, where he spent lots of time with his scandal associates. He was also elected to senate. Tweed was widely known as “Boss Tweed” because he was the boss of Tammany Hall. In 1870, he and his associates known as “Tweed’s Ring” took control of the city treasury. They began to financially drain New York City through faked leases, false vouchers, extravagantly padded bills, and other schemes..
By only looking out for himself and his money, he’s constantly seeking revenge. To sum up, the characters in The Crucible have different reasons for plotting revenge. They embody spiteful people who think they deserve something, whether it be love, land, or a sense of justice. Even so, they don’t benefit from this. They prove Gandhi was right about revenge being ineffective.
A normal person probably wouldn’t feel “an impulse to cry aloud with joy” when they hear a scream of pain. This also links back to my claim that he changes over the course of the story. It relates to the claim because my first quote showed him saying he does not approve of Zaroff murdering people yet this quote shows he is very violent himself. “ ‘Splendid! One of us is to furnish a repast for the hounds.
Both of the short stories are about revenge, murder and madness. The narrators of both the Tell-Tale Heart and the Cask of Amontillado have very different motives for committing the murder each of them commits. In The Tell-Tale Heart, the narrator is insane and his motive behind killing the old man is that he cannot stand the sight of the old man’s “vulture eye”. He is tempted to close the eye forever, and so he does this by murdering him. Whereas, in The Cask of Amontillado, the reason behind the murder is revenge, “The thousand injuries of Fortunato I had borne as best I could; but when he ventured upon insult, I vowed revenge.” Additionally, Montressor’s jealousy is another reason because of which he murders Fortunato.
Lennie with his simple mind, always gets into trouble. This time, Lennie gets himself in a bind once again, that George can’t save him from. George decision to kill Lennie in the story, was due to his responsibility, sympathy, and love for Lennie. George’s decision to kill Lennie was out of sympathy for him. In the book, George and Slim said to each other, “Couldn’ we maybe bring him in an’ they’ll lock him up?
Killing is not easy, it is even harder to kill a fellow human being even if they are horrible. In the short story “Just Lather That’s All” by Hernando Tellez we are introduced to a character Captain Torres, who doesn’t have a problem with killing but he also thinks it is not easy to kill. However, the barber, who is giving the Captain a shave, battles, whether to kill Torres or not. The author uses irony, foreshadowing, and imagery to create a shocking story, that keeps the reader reading. In conclusion, this extraordinary story explores the thin line between doing what is best and what is honourable.
Individuality is definitely the theme for both these short stories. Equality sees himself as an individual, even when he knows if he were to express that, it is frowned upon and there are consequences for those type of actions. This proves that they are against anyone being their own person. When Harrison was spoken with his opinion, he was sent to prison where he later escaped to try and attempt again to show that he does not agree with Handicapper General but is killed because of that. These stories both are satire, which is writing that mocks something to prove a point.
No one deserves to die, and no one deserves death. Some executions are justified, but David Herold’s was not. Herold was a skilled and talented man who was deprived into a corner to help a killer. James L. Swanson’s novel, Chasing Lincoln 's Killer, a diary entry, “Last Diary Entry of John Wilkes Booth,” and an article, “Lincoln Writ of Liberty” contain evidence that proves Herold’s innocence. Herold did help a murderer; however, he is like everyone, in that he is susceptible to violent threats.
Macbeth is at a serious loss of integrity in these moments as he does the horrific deed by following an apparition, “Is this a dagger I see before me?”. It can be questioned whether the apparition was something more than his own desire to kill and him needing a reason or excuse to get blood on his hands without feeling guilt and with this he doesn’t take responsibility for the actions he carried out. Although Macbeths actions against the king were moments of extreme lack in nobility and integrity, he follows through with great guilt “To I know my deed twere best not know myself. Wake Duncan. I would thou couldst” “all Neptune’s ocean cannot clean his hands”, this metaphor/hyperbole brings back his original character of honor where he is saying that no amount of Neptune’s water can clear his guilt or wash away the blood on his hands or the mistake he has made.
His decisions to shoot offenders is more likely guided by his cruel nature rather than profession guidelines. He acts violently when dealing with offenders as seen where he beats up the offender before arresting him which is against the professional guidelines. Personality disorders are mostly linked to interpersonal relationships and how individuals treat their social counterparts. However, it also involves the nature of decisions people make based on their personal feelings. It is very likely that the sniper lacks personal feelings towards other people’s lives.
As a result they begin to go against their morals. Despite this novel being dark, it brings up ideas of human nature that can easily be related to ideas in our modern world, such as killing for survival and pleasure and wanting to set things right. Violence is a common establishment in our society today and exists in the military and in everyday life. In the book, there are two major deaths: Simon and Piggy. Simon’s death is more accidental than intentional, considering how the boys thought he was the beast.
In the beginning of this excerpt when Synge relates the anecdote of the Connaught man who killed his father, he suggests that this experience relates the “primitive feeling of these people…that a man will not do wrong unless he is under the influence of a passion…[and] they can see no reason why he should be dragged away and killed by the law.” While this seems to be an accurate assumption for the majority of cases, this is a potentially dangerous statement. The premise of this argument rests on the notion that the accused murderer feels remorse and is forever changed by their action. Yet this viewpoint falls apart and would be naive if the person who committed the crime is deranged and knowingly and unreservedly killed the person. If this
