“His mind was crowded with memories; memories of the knowledge that had come to them when they closed in on the struggling pig, knowledge that they had outwitted a living thing, imposed their will upon it, taken away its life like a long satisfying drink.” This quotation, also from Chapter 4, explores Jack’s mental state in the aftermath of killing his first pig, another milestone in the boys’ decline into savage behavior. Jack exults in the kill and is unable to think about anything else because his mind is “crowded with memories” of the hunt. Golding explicitly connects Jack’s exhilaration with the feelings of power and superiority he experienced in killing the pig. Jack’s excitement stems not from pride at having
It is human nature to want power, to be at the top of the pyramid, to be king/queen, but that comes at a price as shown in Macbeth. In the play, Macbeth and Lady Macbeth will do anything to have absolute power and nothing stands in their way. From killing to going completely mad, they will become the next king and queen at all costs. The ambition and the want for power is so high that they kill many, they do whatever they can to be one step closer, and they go completely insane, all because they want that absolute power. Although killing is illegal, Macbeth sees no harm at all to killing King Duncan because he said that his son will be next in line for king.
When you don 't have to worry about a little problem than most people would take it as life is already hard so if you can take a problem away that’s better. Accordingly, the rhetorical device Thoreau plugged in “I wanted to live deep and suck out all the marrow of life, to live so sturdily” such as a metaphor of life and as if he wanted to devour the world
Lady Macbeth puts on a fierce and intimidating front but proves incapable of the egregious act of murder. Macbeth, however, actually commits murder and determines to do any vile deed to fight for the crown. He holds this disposition even until the point of death, unlike Lady Macbeth who dies repentant. Macbeth’s murderous actions and attitude prior to death ultimately demonstrate that he is the worse villain of the
Young Siward: Your last hour is close, you evil tyrant! (They both fight, and Macbeth killed the Young Siward) Macbeth: No men born from a woman can defeat me, I’m the great Macbeth. I’m not afraid of swords in this life! Scene 8: -Characters: Macbeth, Macduff. Macduff: Look at me now; I’m here to punish your evil soul with death.
This statement demonstrates how betrayed Laertes feel towards Claudius and the whole kingdom as he says, “To hell allegiance! Vow, to the blackest devil!”. For this reason, he is comprehensively denouncing any allegiance his family has ever had with the royal family being, that his fear of betrayal has finally come to pass. With regard to the statement made by Laertes, he goes on and declares, “... I give to negligence,/ Let come what comes - only I’ll be revenged/ most thoroughly for my father” (4.5.134-36).
“He wanted this fight. If he had left me alone, he would still be alive now.” Tybalt responds. “I am done being merciful and considerate towards you Capulets,” Benvolio announces as he draws his sword.
Nicolas Cage states, “I think what makes people fascinating is conflict, it's drama, it's the human condition. Nobody wants to watch perfection.” Anger, Death, Violence, Chaos, the past, speaking silently in the darkness. These nouns draw our attention by the main and forefront inclination of human nature, and how our bodies are programmed to maintain focus on such events. An inescapable collision course, since the dawn of time conflict, has arisen deep within our souls, along with the obscurity that ensues, being a fundamental factor in how we cannot process the cause or reason of why individuals let negativity, personal gain, hatred, and other emotional charges take control of their mouths and body. These uncontrollable acts can be viewed
“There is no revenge so complete as forgiveness.” says war veteran John Billings. Revenge is the desire to repay an injury by inflicting harm and hatred is the deep, negative thought that may lead to it. Hurting or harming other humans in today’s society is not allowed. Revenge has the reputation of being barbaric, short-sighted and a pointless instinct. It is an aspect of our human makeup that we must resist.
“Always drifting back to one another,” he started. And I told him, “As we should,” like I deserved to have him in my life. I remembered right then how there was nothing poetic about him. He had no rhythm, no rhyme; there was not a pause amidst his words or lisps, though he seemed to have worked through those. There wasn’t a universe in his eyes, and no love from me for him between my thighs.
You can see this when he is fighting Macduff, telling him that "You 're wasting your strength. You 'd find it just as easy to damage the intangible air with your sword as to make me bleed." (V.VIII.11-13) He doesn 't believe that any man could possibly harm him and thinks that he can easily defeat Macduff in this battle. During an earlier battle, it still showed and he had killed the boy without so much of a second thought about it. Macbeth no longer cares about what happens to others and you can see this when he receives the news of Lady Macbeth 's death.

It had gone beyond her, beyond everything. He had thrown himself into it with a creative passion, adding to it all the time, decking it out with every bright feather that drifted his way. No amount of fire or freshness can challenge what a man will store up in his ghostly heart"(5.95-96). Suddenly Nick sees a man with an “expression be-wilderment” on his face, who has great doubts about the things that he considered to be the priorities. Nick sees a man whose entire life was dedicated to one dream, and now that his dream is achieved this man is truly lost.
Furthermore, it is also pointed out that, “Beowulf was granted the glory of winning; Grendel was driven / under the fen-banks, fatally hurt, / to his desolate lair” (817-820). Adding to this, a crucial piece of information involves Grendel’s actions when he goes to the mead-hall and encounters Beowulf. Although Beowulf’s mission involves murdering Grendel, he does not need to go on a journey to his lair to find him – he only needs to travel so far as to Denmark. One notable thing to also mention about this battle includes what it symbolizes; the collision of good and evil. Grendel represents a horrifying demon, incapable of joy, while Beowulf embodies an almost godly epic hero.
Even though I did not realize what he wanted, in the end, I can say that I loved him. I loved him enough to consider him in my malicious plan, not to put blame on him or to harm him, but to (attempt to) save him as well. I attempted to murder my husband because I did not want to leave him alone, without anyone to hold onto. He has given me so much, how could I leave him with no one? I am thankful that I have changed, I will learn to become a stronger person.
