Hossack however was convicted of murder. I believe Glaspell used Mrs. Wright in Trifles to show the other side of the story. After murdering her husband Mrs. Wright is helped by the other women to keep from being convicted. 2. There are many ways for the played to be viewed as feminist.
Mary knew because she would let Booth hold the meetings about the kidnapping at her boarding house. She allowed him to do this because she knew what was going on. If she let him have the meetings there, she had to have known about the kidnapping plot. Mary Surratt was already punished for taking place in the kidnapping of Abraham Lincoln. By the end of April Booth was dead, killed by union troopers.
Macbeth committed murder to King Duncan for his love of his wife. Lady Macbeth wanted her husband Macbeth to commit murder for her own evil ambitions. She wanted her husband, Macbeth to kill Duncan so Macbeth will become king of Scotland and she will become queen (Act 1, Scene 6, Lines 16-31) She manipulates her husband into killing King Duncan by calling her husband a coward . (Act 1,Scene 5, Lines 44-50) In addition, she comes up with the plot to kill king Duncan. (Act 1: Scene 7 : Lines 75-77).
“I know that I am a destroyer of the most precious thing, which is life”. This quote was from Patricia Krenwinkel. Patricia Krenwinkel had an important role in the Manson trials because she stabbed Abigail Folger countless of times and then later on she stabbed Rosemary LaBianca with a carving fork to death. She was found guilty of murder and they gave her the death sentenced, but the judge overruled it so she got life in prison. It has been 46 years since the murder of the Manson family.
In the story The Stranger by Albert Camus, Meursault, the absurd hero is put on trial. Meursault is put on trial first of all for his senseless murder, but that is not the only reason. The main reason he was put on trial, was for his Maman’s death and his act of senselessness. From Meursault 's point of view we see that the bailiff questions people like Perez Maman’s fiance. The bailiff asked Perez, “Had [you] at least seen [him] cry?”(Camus 91).
In the eyes of a 1600s court of common law, Lady Macbeth would be perceived as guilty as Macbeth due to her role as a principal of murder in regicide, as an accessory of murder in other acts of homicide, her dominant position in the relationship of the crime duo, and her own admittance of her crime. Lady Macbeth directly contributes the the murder of Duncan by blaming the chamberlains and is therefore a principal of murder in the second degree. According to the National Paralegal College, a principal in the second degree can be defined as “a party who helps the principal in the first degree in the commission of a crime and who is present at the time and place that the crime is committed” (“Accomplices: Common Law Classifications”).

But Selma found out that Bill stole her money and ended the struggle by killing bill. She was caught and eventually put on a trial. After every truth Selma stated, her life escalates to a tragic finale of having been sentenced to death. This film is in the form of tragedy in which a genuinely good person (Selma) ended up accused with seducing and killing Bill and was given a death penalty which she don’t deserve. In Aristotle’s Poetics, Tragedy is defined as an imitation of an action that is complete, and whole, and of a certain magnitude; for there may be a whole that is wanting in magnitude.
She has faced second-hand wrongdoing from the oppressive government through the murder of her family members. She describes, “...that sister of the mortally wounded boy upon the ground was my sister, that husband was my sister’s husband, that unborn child was their child, that brother was my brother, that father was my father, those dead are my dead, and that summons to answer for those things descends to me!’”(Dickens 354). Because Madame Defarge was vengeance for her family, she makes the heir of the aristocrat that killed her family, an innocent man who had relinquished his claim to the throne, to be executed. She believes that all aristocrats must be punished just because of their relation by blood, saying herself, “‘The château [castle] and the race...Extermination.’”(Dickens 179). Madame Defarge’s hatred for the government comes from her loved ones being murdered by the controllers of that government.
Alyssa tortured Elizabeth before she murdered her, and through murdering Elizabeth, Alyssa had also tortured Elizabeth’s whole family. So, yes if they took it into their own hands and tortured Alyssa in some form of way, it would be justified. Right? No. Justified?
By the end of the final act of the play, both Lady Macbeth and Macbeth have died. The former died without a specific explanation (presumably by suicide) and the latter died on the battlefield at the hands of Macduff. I strongly believe that they should have both died under the death penalty as they are both guilty of murdering innocent people for the sole purpose of satisfying their greed and ensuring their own personal safety. Starting off in the first act, Macbeth and Lady Macbeth agree to murder King Duncan and his servants in order for them to be given the crown. Lady Macbeth states: “If he do bleed, I’ll gild the faces of the grooms withal, for it must seem their guilt.” (Act 2.
