The speaker is also justified in killing the snake because he/she was threatened after making the first attempt into killing the rattlesnake, but he only tried to kill the snake because it would be an inconvenience to anyone or any animal on the ranch. Some people may argue that if the speaker just kept themselves and didn’t bother the snake everything would be ok, but think about it this way say you were in the speaker's shoes and you decided to keep walking instead of trying to kill the snake. Later on that day you find out that an animal or person was harmed by the same rattlesnake that you could’ve chosen to kill earlier, but you didn’t. Wouldnt you feel guilty because you could’ve had the power of preventing the whole situation from happening if you decided to annihilate the rattlesnake earlier?
In Chapter 2 of the book one of the young boys believes he has seen a “beast” he tells the other boys he saw, “A snake thing.” When writing the book Golding was using the snake as a way of saying that man is deceitful and sneaky. Golding uses this metaphor as a way of showing that the deceitfulness found in man is a defect of human nature. In the book Golding also references The Beast as a manipulative character. Golding does this when Simon, one of the boys on the island, is looking into the mouth of a pig head on a stake.
In the woods, too, a man casts off his years, as the snake his slough [dead skin] and at what period so ever of life is always a child.” Emerson compares a man casting off his years to a snake casting off his dead skin. This comparison backs up the idea that people need to be able to look deep inside of themselves to find the ability to love nature and be able to be at peace with the world. By casting off this outside shell, people can go back to the innocence of childhood, when they were able to connect with nature and love it for what it really is. For nature itself, finding peace with the rest of the world is not nearly as difficult as it is for people.

Eventually, the neighbor dies a painful death. “The Champion of the World” is a clear example of dramatic irony in Dahl’s writing. The fact that the reader can foresee the outcome of the story is
My brother and I did not see it, but my father saw it and told us that we almost stepped on it. It was scary thinking that if either one of us stepped on the snake that we wouldn’t want to know what would happen. My father is kinda crazy in the mind, as much as wanting to show us how the snake attacks. Then he grabbed a stick started poking the deadly snake. The outcome is not what we expected.
The voices he hears that threaten: “Macbeth shall sleep no more” indicate a relationship between guilt and madness. Therefore, the manifestation of the dagger suggests that he feels guilty because of his attempt to murder Duncan. There are three major transitions of thought. First, he contemplates about the dagger’s existence; the second is the invocations of dark images; finally, there is the bell that cuts off Macbeth’s contemplations. The transitions between topics indicate that while Macbeth feels guilty for the murder, his determination makes him ignore
This was fate playing in role of Delia because Sykes did not do any work for the house, or provide for his wife, so God takes care of the situation for Delia. Chuck Jackson, whose research is on twentieth-century African American short stories, “The end of Sykes is not merely the cleansing away of oppressive male violence, for what is Sykes but a clever troping off of the word psyche,” (Jackson 641). From this, Jackson is explaining how Sykes was not only an abusive husband, but also bringing out his inner man from that time period. Men were dominant in relationships in the 1920s and had full control over what happened. Abuse in marriages were not solved from the death of Sykes, but it helped Delia with her personal experience.
