He was simply overwhelmed and lost control. And I honestly feel that Ms. Nugent brought it on herself. One of the most insightful scenes in the movie is when Bernie is trying to leave and she closes the gate. I think this perfectly describes their relationship. He was trapped, and killing her seemed to be the only way out.

This is dramatic irony, because the audience knows Romeo and Juliet are married, but the Capulets are completely unaware of this fact. However, the audience knows that Juliet only took a sleeping potion, but Romeo thinks she is dead and he creates a plan to kill himself. “Let me have/A dram of poison, such soon-speeding gear/ As will disperse itself through all the veins/That the life-weary taker may fall dead,/And that the trunk may be discharged of breath/As violently as hasty powder fired/Doth hurry from the fatal cannon’s womb” (5.1.63-68).

If this description is not enough, she also speaks of an ordeal that has to do with his physical behavior. “...putting out a hand, which he each time pressed, without very much kindness, and painfully pressed to one of the breast button of his uniform.” ( Bowen 1408). Her remembrance of these events and the description that we’re given coupled with the supernatural prescience of the letter and the Taxicab, leads us to see this lover as not only a man of bad character, but as a literal demon. This is only backed up by the ballad, where the man in the poem also acted as a villain and was later revealed to be a demon himself. This is told on lines 39 and 40, “When dismal grew his countenance / and drumlie grew his ee” (Demon lines 39 &40) as explanation of his poor will, and a description of his intimidating looks paralleled in Bowen’s story.
3 Literature Review • The individual is bitter and disconsolate after the creature is turned away society, a lot in the similar means that Adam in “Paradise lost was turned out of the Garden of Eden. One difference, though, makes the monster a sympathetic character, especially to contemporary readers. In the biblical story, Adam causes his own fate by sinning.

Then Beowulf travels home, lies to the king about his feat, is told that he will be crowned the future king of the Danes (when he is supposed to be king of the Geats), and then Hrothgar kills himself. Now, I get that sex sells but what the hell was Zemeckis thinking? This plot twist doesn’t just alter my view of this movie, but plagues the entire piece with a smog of a new toxic circle that could curse all Danish Kings to
The “bullet” has a negative connotation to it because it often is associated with gun violence, warfare, homicides, and death. The metaphor insinuates that the girl is hurting him on the inside because this literary device indicates the girl hurting him after they fell out of love. Moreover, the narrator describes a boy’s past situation by stating that “… his skin / was a boy with a sad laugh” (4-5). This “sad laugh” is an oxymoron that shows the boy appears
