Crackle, crackle, stomp. These are the sounds the men heard as they realized they were trapped in the monster’s lair. In the stories of Homer’s The Odyssey and that of the Coen Brothers’ O Brother Where Art Thou, there are different depictions of one of the worlds most well known monsters, the cyclops. The relations between a preacher and a horrible cyclops may seem like a huge stretch. However, from their appearances, actions, and even animals; these two may have more in common than meets the eye.
On the one hand, negative metaphors of wolf have a long history, as the wolf has always been regarded as an evil creature in the human culture, for example, wolf metaphor can be used to describe pervert men erotically dreaming of women (Zirgnibl 172). In this way, the nickname “White Wolf” for serial killers has become extremely convincing to the public, because the wolf metaphor has the ability to combine people’s negative feeling about the wolf with their condemnation to killers’ villainy (Zirgnibl 173). On the other hand, the author demonstrates that metaphor plays a role in comparing two subjects sharing similar features (“substitution theory”), and in speaking of the wolf, it enables people to focus on the negative features of wolf that the serial killer shares (Zirgnibl 173-74). And due to the process of “mutual enhancement” (“interactionist theory”), the metaphor also has the power to elevate the meaning of wolf and serial killer, which makes the nickname become more meaningful and believable (Zirgnibl
The monster was brought into the world with a blank slate only to be thrown out to the wolves with nothing. Although the monster did commit some heinous crimes, sympathy should be shown to the monster for the shear fact that from the moment his heart started beating, he was already being pushed away by the person who brought him into this world. “Unable to endure the aspect of the being i created, I rushed out of the room and continued a long time traversing my bedchamber, unable to compose my mind to sleep” (Shelley
Men are dogs. At least, that is what Angela Carter compares them to in her short story “The Company of Wolves.” In the story she sets up a village terrorized by vicious animals. The children carry knives when they leave the house, the farmers lock up their animals at night, and people lose loved ones. However, the villagers slowly begin to realize that the wolves they believed to be the culprits behind the bloodshed, are actually werewolves; men who turn into beasts. One young woman, completely innocent in life, meets a handsome boy in the woods on the way to her grandmother’s house.
Vlad was known to have his victims “disemboweled, beheaded and skinned or boiled alive” whenever he often saw fit. He was a man who some say, thirsted for blood, which is definitely true given his brutal, unforgiving nature. His actions directly parallel with Hitler’s in a way that is both unsightly and inhumane, and both men’s’ lives seemed to revolve around death. Finally, there is Genghis Khan who, even for his time, was a murderous machine. Even though he may have not killed in the most brutal methods, the number of deaths he was responsible for was astronomical for those times.
An example of a visionary killer is David Berkowitz, known as Son of Sam. He committed a total of 6 murders and wounded so many. He was arrested in August 10,1977 after a witness discover a detail that would help the police. During questioning Berkowitz stated that his neighbor Sam is the devil and Sam sent a message to him through his dog, telling him to kill (Berkowitz, 2014). Mission-oriented killers are not generally psychotic, but often have an explanation for the crime they are committing.
Like Achilles have weakness on his heel similarly the beast shows that every human have weaknesses so the girl subdues the werewolf with his weak point. Forest symbolizes something that is wild and scary where Angela Carter says the forest is a place where it helps the wolves to trap people. So forest can also symbolize a patriarchal society created by man that helps the beast to have feast with the
(1) The wolf in sheep’s clothing: After reading this story, I can’t stop laughing, because this wolf is really stupid. This wolf weared the sheep’s clothing and deceived the shepherd by his coutume.so this wolf thought that he had many chances to eat sheep. But unfortunately, the shepherd thought of the wolf as a sheep and killed him instantly.so that the wolf not only ate sheep but also was killed by shepherd. of course, in our daily life, there are many things like this example. For instance, some old people pretend to have a fall and after someone who is very kind and enthusiastic pulls them up, they will ask the helper to give them money and make the helper unhappy.
The rest of your body is then thrown into a pile with others who have suffered the same fat as you. While this may seem like some horror movie scene, it is in fact very accurate and happens on a daily basis. Each year, millions of animals are tortured and killed just for the fur on their back. The fur industry is a very cruel and heartless business that is unnecessary and bad for the environment. 2.
