The practice of voyeurism is a debatable subject often criticized negatively for its perverted motives. Yet, through both Woolrich’s “It had to be murder” and its film adaptation Rear Window, the reader can be led to see a celebration of voyeurism rather than a critique. Jeffries is indeed given the most reasonable excuses to stalk his neighbours as his cast takes away his freedom of movement and the murder he tries to solve also gives him more reasons to spy on his neighbours. However, Jeff is greatly saved from being entitled as a Peeping Tom by the coincidence of Thorwald’s wife’s murder. As a matter of a fact, the timing in which Jeff is stuck in a cast and the woman is murder is nothing but a coincidence, neither Hitchcock nor Woolrich
By breaking the law his soul would be ruined and a ruined soul is not worth living with. This goes back to when he said that the really important thing is not to live but to live well. Also, when he dies he would enter Hades as an outlaw and will not be well welcomed. Therefore, he believes that he should stay and face his execution because it is better to die than to live with a ruined soul. Socrates uses all of these points to support his main argument which is that escaping jail would be morally incorrect.

In the story, “The Lottery” by Shirley Jackson; the author believes that following traditions and rituals blindly can lead to bad results. First of all, the disadvantage of following a tradition is that it can create violence and unknowingly distribute the thought of guilt between the people of society. For example, when a person’s name is picked out from the raffle, it’s in their tradition to start throwing stones at the unlucky person thoughtlessly. This also generates the eagerness to hurt the individual. Besides, the family members of the victim are not allowed to defy the society and dispute.
It was sinful to treat Tom Robinson like trash because of hatred towards his race. It was sinful to keep Boo Radley locked away from society because of the mistakes he made. These preventable situations are like killing a mockingbird; you shouldn’t do it but it is done anyway. Tom Robinson and Boo Radley were mockingbirds because they were not a threat to society, yet were punished for being human. Holocaust victims were alienated in a reprehensible way.

Paw is capable of and he “regarded it fearfully.” (Jacobs 6). He realizes the severity of wishing from the Paw and figures out what his family's greed has brought them. He knew the horror of what was behind the door and used his final wish to get rid of what he previously wished for by his own will.

It was caused when Macbeth finishes his talk with one of the murderer. When he returned he saw the ghost of Banquo sitting in his chair. The guilt cause him to have hallucinations of Banquo appearing, and it drove him crazy.
I found that the “Tell Tale Heart” and the “Read Death” by Poe had their similarities. In the “Red Death” the Prince was blind to his actions. The Prince was insensitive to the people suffering in his country and had no intentions to help them because he was safe. In the end he was subjected to his fate that being death. In “Tell Tale Heart” the main character was also greedy and committed murder, for a reason being that a man’s eye bothered him.
