Regardless of the law, Curley’s morals based on vengeance and masculinity drive him to kill Lennie. George has very different morals based on protecting Lennie, his travel companion and friend. His ultimate goal of helping Lennie leads to him ending Lennie’s life in order to prevent his suffering at the hands of Curley. The concept that morality takes precedence over the law in certain cases is manifested through the decision of Curley to hunt Lennie down and the decision of George to end Lennie’s life in Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck. Curley’s decision to hunt Lennie down for the murder of his wife is one circumstance in which a character’s morals are deemed more important than the laws that govern society.
I think that because, at the end he got his revenge and killed him, it might’ve took a long time to do it and it did cost people’s lives, but he got his revenge. In document F it says, “For God only can take vengeance of the sole,” In document e, it says, that Claudius, started praying because he knew that hamlet knows about his murder. At the end of his prayer he says, “My words fly up, my thoughts remain below: Words without thoughts never to heaven go.” In document A, it says that the killing of Claudius is justified because, Claudius lied about killing the old king, Claudius also stole his brother’s wife, life, and his crown. The ghost of the king said, “The serpent that did sting thy father’s life Now wears his crown.” To hamlets face. I believe that hamlets actions were not justified but one is, because revenge isn’t a good thing, but Claudius is not just a murderer he is a stealer too.
To test Claudius’s guilt, Hamlet adds a scene reenacting the murder of Hamlet’s father. Claudius abruptly leaves the play, and afterward, tries to pray. When Claudius is praying, Hamlet is considering killing him, but decides not to because he wants to kill him in sin so that he does not get a chance at last confession. They also all end up dying later in the story due to a sword fight and poison. In conclusion, I think that Hamlet 's actions were justified because if you put yourself in his place, the possibility of murdering your father 's murderer would undoubtedly be an option that would be in anyone 's head.
Hamlet was plotting his uncle’s murder, something the majority of people would view as completely insane, but it is how he plotted this murder that makes it clear that he is not mad. He deceives his friends and family into thinking he has gone completely mad, but it is his actions that prove to the reader that he may not be as mad as the king and queen believe. His unwillingness to kill Claudius because “he is a-praying.. And so he goes to heaven; And so I am revenged: And so he is scanned:” (III/iii/76-79) proves that he still has some reason and has put some thought into this murder. Also, it is how Hamlet acts towards his love, Ophelia, that proves that he may not truly be mad, especially in Act 5 during her funeral when he returns and states “I loved Ophelia. Forty thousand brothers could not with all their love make up my sum.”(V/i/262-264) Hamlet attempts to deceive the entire kingdom into labelling him as mad so that they would think nothing of him.
Perhaps George got tired of Lennie and took his life out of anger as his job and dream of sharing a farm with Lennie became impossible, or maybe George had had enough and killed Lennie because “(…) he [Lennie] gets in trouble alla time because he’s so God damn dumb.” (OMM, 42). On the contrary, after Lennie had killed Curley’s wife George knew what Curley’s lynch mob would come for Lennie and make his death painful by “(…) shoot[ing] the guts outa that big bastard” (OMM, 96-97). George simply helped Lennie the only way he knew how, by taking his life quickly after telling him what he wanted to
Originally, Macbeth needed persuasion from his lady to follow through with Duncan’s murder; however, the audience sees Macbeth’s ambition grow when he plans Banquo’s death on his own. He even tells his wife to “be innocent of knowledge, dearest chuck” (3.2.45). This act of lonely violence displays the progress of Macbeth’s ambition. He went from a man who needed an extra push in order to carry out such an evil plan to one who was able to orchestrate his own scheme. Guilt and fear consume Macbeth after the first murderer informs him that Banquo has been killed but his son Fleance escaped the murderous grasp.
George would help him by holding his work card, they always work together, and he didn’t steal him money when he could . He also would listen to everything that George would tell him to do. If George didn’t kill Lennie he would either have gone to jail or “‘They’ll take ya to the booby hatch.They’ll tie ya up with a collar, like a dog’”(pg72). If George didn’t kill him Lennie would have been tortured by Curley because Lennie had humiliated him and killed his wife. George also killed him because he didn’t want to regret not killing Lennie himself rather than someone else killing him that wouldn’t have cared.
Third - Others may say that tybalt is to blame for all the deaths. In the end the Prince is at fault for the death if he had just enforced the law and the consequences of them the outcome of the entire play could be different. He stated that anyone caught fighting would be killed for disruption of the peace and the town. Some people think that he was not involved too much and is not the biggest cause of all the deaths. On the other hand making the laws puts him in control of the laws and those causing some of the
“I 'll go no more. I am afraid to think what I have done; Look on 't again I dare not.” (Act II, sc ii, Lines 48-50). Macbeth is getting extremely paranoid and feels bad killing Duncan. Macbeths ambitions caused him to murder Duncan, but he also had Banquo murdered, and wanted to murder Banquo 's son, Fleance. Macbeth wants Banquo killed because he saw him as a threat; however, Banquo had been Macbeth 's friend and thought he could trust him.
Oedipus could have waited for the plague to end, but out of compassion for his suffering people, he had Creon go to Delphi. When he learned of Apollo 's word, he could have calmly investigated the murder of the former King Laius, but in his hastiness, he passionately curses the murderer, and in so, unknowingly curses himself. "Upon the murderer I invoke this curse- whether he is one man and all unknown, or one of many- may he wear out his life in misery or doom! If with my knowledge he lives at my hearth, I pray that I myself may feel my curse. " (pg.
