There so call “father” is a villain wanting to steal the moon. The whole reason he turned to a villain anyway was because of his mother. He also gets his villainy from his mother because she was kind of mean and evil since she wasn’t impressed by anything he did and it also seemed as if she didn’t love him. From Gru being neglected and him not feeling like he was loved certainly hurt him really sad inside. Gru is certainly wanting to prove himself and he sure did except he proved how bad of a villain he is.
Even though in these two stories tackle different things the main character is obsessed over, the main idea of harming other peoples lives because of their strange obsession remains the same. Clearly, obsession can really make one think so irrationally that they forget the basic principles of humanity and they end up doing ridiculous things without usually realizing until after they have taken the wrong action. The lead character in “The Tell-Tale Heart”, had gone so crazy because of his obsession over his eyes, that he decided to take the old man’s life in a very cruel way. The old man had never harmed, insulted, or wronged him in any way, and rather they both cared about each other but “it wasn’t the man who vexed me [him], but the evil eye” . Gradually, he made up his mind to take the life of the old
He feels hated and ugly for much of his childhood, but after meeting Arthur, he trains his hardest to overcome his appearance and become the greatest knight in the entire world. In most versions in the tale of king Arthur, Sir Lancelot is depicted as a handsome, charming man. But in the once and future king, he is ugly and deformed. This leaves room for much more character development, but he finds this difficult due to his inner contradictions, “For one thing, he liked to hurt people. It was for the strange reason that he was cruel, that the poor fellow never killed a man who asked for mercy, or committed a cruel action which he could have prevented.” (White 339) All of these strange feelings contradicting each other inside him cause him to have a lot of problems growing and changing.
In both cases instead of feeling sorry for scaring or killing them, he is angry at them because of it. Finally, Lennie’s strength is too great for him. Steinbeck writes “And then she was still, for Lennie had broken her neck.”(91). Just like the mice that he squeezed too hard, and the puppy he shook too harshly, Lennie’s strength had gotten the best of him. Although he never intended to kill anything, he could not contain his own
This is when the three strange apparitions of evil that I will refer to as the 'weird sisters ', the name which they gave themselves, appeared. This information had Came to Macbeth at the worst possible time, feeling physically and mentally defeated, despite winning for the King. This not only clouded his 5 conscience but made him weak in temptations while increasing his sense of ambition. Macbeth continuously refused to believe their prophecy that he would be Thane of Cawdor and then King. Which is clearly agreed upon as the correct way to deal with evil.
There is no legitimate reason to make anyone touch their own coffin, other to be cruel, mean, and spiteful. That was exactly what the narrator did, and if his brother would not touch it he was going to leave him there. At that point in the story Doodle did not know how to walk so he would not have been able to get down at all. The narrator is also needlessly cruel to Doodle when Hurst writes “The knowledge that Doodle’s and my plans had come to naught was bitter, and that streak of cruelty within me awakened. I ran as fast as I could, leaving him far behind with a wall of rain dividing us” (360).
His insightful suggestion is mocked and he is considered crazy because it is easier for the boys to comprehend a tangible monster lingering over them that could be killed rather than to accept “mankind’s essential illness” (Golding 89) which cannot be changed nor destroyed. Simon is isolated from the others because of his atypical insight and he simply “cannot be understood, for he speaks the language of truth to the blind” (Talon). When Simon is killed, it symbolizes the death of goodness in man, much like Christ: both are the epitome of good being destroyed as the consequence of man’s sins. People believe in Satan because they cannot comprehend the severity of man’s evil nature and would rather blame
In reality, no one has a perfect life and the novel is a perfect example of this but the characters go crazy because of their obsession with the Dick and Jane lifestyle. Unfortunately, Pecola didn’t receive any sort of justice for the things she went through. She was always the victim but was looked at as a serial killer. She was both physically and mentally abused for no reason at all. The cycle of abuse should have been stopped with her generation but it was not.
Interactionist Andrei Chikatilo worked alone through out all his killings. He did not share his plans with anyone neither, before or after he committed them. There was no clear person who inspired his actions beside his own discoveries he made about how to satisfy himself. As the interactionalist theory believes failure of self direction and insufficient social roles are the main causes of criminal behaviour, which are highly accurate regarding Andrei Chikatilo, still, he wants power over others more then acceptance in society, as he already has it (class notes). He is prepared to do this alone, as he wants the complete satisfaction for his own extremely personal and private gains, not for the acknowledgment of others.
His fear of losing his reputation led him to destroying his confession documents, which condemned him to his death. Finally, Proctor did not deserve to die. He felt guilt and remorse, a sure sign that he was an honest man, and honest men do not deserve to die. In conclusion, Arthur Miller’s John Proctor is a hero. Proctor trying to explain to that the witch hunts are led by a lovesick girl to an unforgiving crowd exuberates his characteristics as a hero.
In John Steinbeck’s dynamic novel Of Mice and Men, the challenged Lennie’s harmless intentions results in heinous acts due to his decline in mentality and inability to control his own immense strength. In the beginning, Lennie’s simple love of soft things causes inconsequential incidents that quickly escalate into more severe offenses as the story progresses. By the end of the novel, Lennie’s uncontrollable strength and mental deficits leads him to commit unintended manslaughter. Stories of Lennie’s childhood show that from the beginning Lennie has enjoyed petting soft things but becomes hindered by his unmanageable physical power and child-like mind. George’s retelling of his and Lennie’s long ago past reveals Lennie’s Aunt Clara has given him soft things to stroke like a square of velvet and mice.
There are kids in highschool pregnant and nobody really pays attention or cares. I say that the theme of the outsiders is don 't judge a book by its cover. I think this because everyone thought the greasers were no good scum who were terrible people but they turned out to be nice. An example is johnny, Johnny was thought to be a very shy person. Then he stabbed bob in self defense and socs thought he was evil.
This is reinforced by the rhetorical question that serves to convince Walton that the Monster hated having to turn to violence. In both situations, a friendly and accepting hand could have led both monsters to happiness and kindness, but the lack thereof sparked the violence. Grendel and the Monster from their respective works, Gardner’s Grendel and Shelley’s Frankenstein, find themselves with no companionship, nobody to share in their joys or sorrows, which leads to violence being taken out on those who rejected them; if those victims had initially accepted and loved Grendel and the Monster, this would not have
When Eminem was just nine years old, a bully at school beat him up so badly that he spend an entire week in a coma. Number Three: Subliminal Beef. Rap giants Snoop Dogg, Jay-Z and Kanye have all targeted Eminem through their music, and he has allegedly had "subliminal beef" with them for a long time. It looks like the rappers have been sending hidden messages to each other for years. Number Two: Size Matters.
He refuses to soften the blow of his opinion by describing the script as an “abomination to God than any of the demons and ghost[s] in the franchise.” The script per Yiannopoulos was the worst part of the entire production of the movie. While he is entitled to his own opinion, Yiannopoulos fails to see that there are redeeming parts of the script. There were little comedic quips in the movie like “Ah hell naw, the Devil is a liar! Get out of my friend, ghost! The power of Patty compels you!” Leslie Jones’ character, Patty is a hilarious character because the character reflects Leslie Jones.
