Toward the end of the novel, Carlson is very insensitive to the fact that George had to kill Lennie, and is still in shock. He says, “Now what the hell ya suppose is eatin’ them two guys?”(107). Carlson just doesn't understand what it's like to lose a strong relationship, because he never had one. Therefore, he is extremely insensitive to George. Another example is when Carlson wanted to shoot Candy’s dog.
I believe that Billy’s punishment was undeserved. One reason why Billy’s punishment was undeserved is Billy hit Claggart out of self defense and fear. The viewers learn that Billy is an innocent and disabled man throughout the movie. Claggart begins to question Billy about numerous untrue ideas. When Claggart begins to accuse Billy of starting a mutiny, Billy begins to feel afraid.
Therefor, Griffen is the man and society does not like him. Theme - What is the moral of the story or the lesson learned? The theme of the story Killing Mr. Griffen is just because some one is mean you dont have to do something bad back. I find this the theme because Mr. griffen is mean to all of his students so then his students gang up on him and kidnap him. Tone - What was the author’s attitude toward the subject in the novel?
Unfortunately, any character taking part in the court tried to prevent this because it would mean they murdered the people they had already hung. The court feared that one of them would “stand upon the gibbet and send up some righteous prayer” which could result with the people wanting vengeance on the court for what they did. Signs that more and more people do not agree with the court’s actions worries many or the members of the court including Parris who found a dagger on his door. To them, their only hope stands with Mr. Hale bringing “even one of these to God” because “that confession surely damns the others in the public eye, and none may doubt more that they are all linked to Hell” (Miller 1108). The truth in his words would remain true for at least a while.
Mid -November, 1959 in the small town of Holcomb, Kansas a family of four was brutally murdered in cold blood. The Clutter family represented the traditional all-American family, which consisted of a Kansas farmer, his wife and their two children. The innocent town of Holcomb was astonished when the news of the quadruple homicide struck. Truman Capote the author of In Cold Blood was adamant to reveal the truth surrounding the story of the murder. By writing this book from the perspective of the killers Truman Capote gave an insight into the minds of the killers, something not commonly experienced.
First, Jem implemented fear and falsehood about Author that dehumanized him. He spread lies making him sound dangerous and without conscience. Eventually, the mention of Boo instantaneously registered fear into Scout’s brain. Second, Dill, who represented Jim Crow, made games of mimicking Author, of which furthered the dehumanization. Until this point, Scout didn’t want anything to do with Author, she was terrified of him and the things he might do.
Already, Robinson did not have a jury of his peers, as guaranteed by the Constitution just like the Scottsboro Boys. Tom knew how bad it would look if he was caught with Mayella, which was why he ran away from the situation with the Ewells, even though he was innocent. He was terrified and knew something bad was coming. The prosecute questioned Tom about these particular actions. “‘Scared of arrest, scared you’d have to face up to what you did?’ ‘No uh, scared I’d hafta face up to what I didn’t do.’ ‘Are you being impudent to me boy?’ ‘No suh, I didn’t go to be.’” (Lee 265).
This strain is not just emotional but also bleeds into the physical realm when Fowler becomes impotent, “She was holding him, wanting him, and he wished he could make love with her but he could not” (Dubus 1136). In an effort to fix a wrong doing against his family Fowler has exacerbated the situation. The killings in the short story, “Killings”, are murders. There is not justification for murder. The killings therefore are not justified.
‘It is what he was told to do, and he know nothing else’” (144). This illustrates just how much Jonas’ father lacks knowledge and wisdom, to the point where he does not know if killing an innocent baby is morally wrong. This means that Jonas’ father as well as everyone in the community will never know what is really right or wrong, nor will they know what to believe. It matters because people in Jonas’ community might think killing is a normal action, or even worse, good. People in Jonas’ community might never know what love or loss is because they won’t know when they feel it.
They were very unprofessional and insensitive about their job. Max almost immediately announces why they were searching for Ole Anderson, he states “We’re going to kill Swede. Do you know big Swede named Ole Anderson?” Add dialogue and language: Maybe Irony: In conclusion The short story “The killers” sets the tone for multiple elements and themes such as masculinity, coming of age, chaos, and crime. Ole Anderson decides that he no longer wants to be on the run. In my opinion, this means that he may have done something he regretted, or maybe he had an idea of what was going to happen to him before he made his decision.
