While awaiting trial Frank 's father Matt Fowler decides to give Mr.Strout a punishment he felt was necessary. Mr.Fowler went out and ended up murdering the man who murdered his son. While reading the story the audience dominantly takes Frank 's father 's side on the situation rather than feeling the same way about the two murders. People seem to sway towards Mr.Fowlers side of the story because they say it was out of love, Richard Strout deserved it, and Frank was innocent unlike Mr. Strout. Love is the key to all relationships throughout the world.
Not only did Atticus show compassion towards friends, he also showed compassion to his enemy and their family. Atticus stepped in the shoes of the Ewells and said that "if spitting in my face and threatening me saved Mayella Ewell one extra beating, that 's something I 'll gladly take." (Lee 218) This represents compassion because he would gladly protect a victim of abuse with his own life. This shows that Atticus can understand and forgive anyone that has ever done him wrong, and will always look for the best outcome of a bad situation. Atticus is the character that shows the most compassion because he takes the anger of an entire town and the hate of an enemy and turns it into positive outlooks and is able to forgive and forget.
“It is forbidden to kill; therefore all murderers are punished unless they kill in large numbers and to the sound of trumpets.”( Voltaire) This quote helps explain the main idea of The Tell Tale Heart by Edgar Allan Poe , a story about a narrator who is the caregiver of the old man who explains his reasons and his exact ways for killing the old man he was taking care of. Out of spite for the victims vulture-like cataract eye, he plots this plan to kill for weeks to rid of the eye. He finally succeeds until a nosy neighbor foils the scheme. These are 3 reasons why the narrator is guilty of murder. In The Tell Tale Heart by Edgar Allan Poe the narrator is guilty of murder because the narrator thinks the old man could never suspect that
When he hears the story of how the king, Laius, was terribly murdered, Oedipus wants to get to the bottom of the story and find the person who is guilty. He never considers himself a suspect, even though he knows he murdered a man not very long ago. When Oedipus is confronted by Tiresias about the murder of Laius, he is shocked and appalled that someone would say such a thing about him. This shows that Oedipus cannot look inside himself to find the truth, and he does not want to know the truth about himself. After people accuse about Oedipus committing the murders, he is determined to find out the truth no matter what it takes.
He matches Aristotle’s definition of a tragic hero because of his fatal flaw. His tragic flaw was attempting to faithfully continue serving the "true" Emperor Marcos Aurelius, not considering the possible consequences he might have to face in order to return Rome to a Republic for the people. Captain John H. Miller was the captain of the American Army. He, like Maximus, does not give up very easily. Even though his mission is to save one man and risk many of his men, he presents a full effort to complete this mission no matter how senseless he believed it was.
According to Document A (“Revenge his foul and most unnatural murder…. Haste me to know’t, that I, with wings as swift as meditation or the thoughts of love, O god! Revenge his foul and most unnatural murder may my revenge be sweep.”) Basically his father tells him that Claudius has murdered him. Then, Hamlet tells his father that he will avenge him quickly but he doesn’t do it. I think lying to his dead father is unjust.
The final similarity they share is that they both want death for the revenge of their enemy. Chillingworth wants his revenge on Dimmesdale to be death because he gives him remedies that keep him sick and kill him slowly while making sure he still feels guilty. . At the ending of the story, Chillingworth finally gets his wish when Dimmesdale collapses on the pedestal, confessing his sins to the whole town about committing adultery with Hester Prynne. Captain Ahab wants revenge on Moby Dick to be death as well.
First and foremost, his neighbor heard the man scream, “I’m going to kill you!” How does one argue against that? He stated his intent, and he ended up killing his father with a knife he bought the night of. That is no coincidence, it was purposeful and planned like a predator catching its prey. Although it may have been planned, which you can see from the lack of fingerprints on the switch knife, the boy might have grown nervous at the idea of committing murder, causing him to do such a sloppy cut despite his expertise. As a lawyer, I know how these criminals think and how they work.
As Claudius repents, Hamlet feels as though it's the best time to kill him until he says: And so ’a goes to Heaven; And so am I revenged. That would be scanned. A villain kills my father; and for that, I, his son, do this same villain send To heaven (3.3.73-78) Essentially, Hamlet wanted to murder Claudius because he was the Old King’s murderer. But, after he realized that Claudius was
