In fact King George shows us the cruelty of man being able to do as the wish through the beheading of his wife whom did not bear sons.
To be specific, Jekyll states the following, “Many a man would have even blazoned such irregularities as I was guilty of; but from the high views that I had set before me, I regarded and hid them with an almost morbid sense of shame” (Stevenson 55). Here, Jekyll is stating that he represses his private desires so much and wants the irregularities in life so badly that he finally faces a challenge, whether to keep his private figure hidden or to reveal it to society and subsequently be judged by society. He now has to make a life changing decision, if he continues to enjoy his pleasures secretly, he will have it on his conscience daily and be tormented by the guilt; if he confesses them, he will no longer have the guilt on his conscience, but he will also be judge harshly by society. Mary Shelly also uses her protagonist, Victor Frankenstein, in way that empsizes

Montag executes a narrow escape with the help of Faber and eventually the scholars.

“Orgon's desire to retain Tartuffe is a function--a reaction and an invitation--of others' desire to be rid of him, of which Damis’ desire is the most strident, the most like the desire of his father in its imperious violence”(Mckenna).
