Curley gon’ta wanta get ‘im lynched. Curley’ll get ‘im killed” (94). If George would not have intervened in Lennie’s death, his fate would have been worse with Curley. Curley’s anger was almost at its highest point, and in his rage he would have done anything to get Lennie killed, but he first would torture Lennie. “He worked himself into a fury.
George knew he had to shoot Lennie because if he didn’t do it, the other guys would and it wouldn’t be calm or quick. I think George killed Lennie because he knew it was the right thing to do. It’s obvious that Lennie has a mental illness and it makes it difficult for him to understand things. For example, when he grabbed the lady’s red dress in Weed, he didn’t realize he was doing anything wrong. He also didn’t realize that touching Curley’s wife’s hair was wrong until he accidentally murdered her.
This is why Grendel is still innocent in a way. Sadly, when it comes down to whether Grendel is a horrid creature or not, the actions speak louder than words. When Grendel first arrived at Hrothgar’s mead hall and coldheartedly ravaged the entire community, he had thrown away his innocence that exact moment. Twelve years of raids and Grendel still enjoyed every reaction that the murders caused. After he is finished ravaging the mead hall, he drags off some of the victims bodies, where he devours them and laughs as he does so.

But Prometheus found a way to use fire, and Zeus did not like this. Zeus decided to chain him up to a rock for many years.
His ego made him blur out every offer of advice and warning given to him to cure the plague and the pollution. One classic case was when Oedipus was given help by Teiresias, the oracle, and he mocked him for his answer and called him crazy. This line comes from the meeting between Oedipus and Teiresias; Oedipus said to Teiresias “I did not know you would speak so stupidly. If I had, you would have waited a long time before I called you here.” (Sophocles Lines 523- 525) This is caused by Teiresias telling Oedipus that he was the pollution of Thebes. The response given to Oedipus caused him to go mad and carry on like a child.
The society in this book seemed to be the type that followed the rules or if you didn’t the worst things were going to happen to you. Everybody makes mistake and they try to learn and move on from them but killing someone intentionally would stick with that person forever and they would never be the same. Therefore, some people debate on whether he was completely out of place for killing Beatty or did the best thing for society. Although Montag killed Beatty, many people debate over whether it was the right thing to do or not. Montag did was he thought was right according to him because Montag thought that he was protecting himself and Faber, killing him to give society a chance to change, and because Beatty did not want to live anymore.
