Once Gacy sexually assaulted his victims, he buried them in his backyard. Gacy’s method of luring his victims into his home was by promising his victims job opportunities. Since Gacy was a well-known active community member, Gacy’s victims were found to be easily lured into his home because he was the owner of his own construction company. In addition to promoting “job opportunities,” Gacy placed many of his victims in handcuffs leading them to believe that he was performing a magic trick. This method appeared relatively convincing to Gacy’s victims considering that Gacy was also known to be a clown performer at children’s parties.
They both were huge liars, who accused innocent people of being something they weren't. Abigail Williams accused women of being witches during her era and Joseph McCarthy accused society in his days of being communist. “Both individuals accused innocent people of wrongdoings for their own selfish intentions…” Joseph McCarthy and Abigail Williams were playing mind games with everyone around them. Manipulating and had some sort of power to convince everyone around them to believe the same thing. “They are similar because, they both had an image to obtain to their society…” Williams and McCarthy both became the fear of their
Day 7 Theme: I think that the theme in this book is that power can drive people crazy. For example it made the prime minister so paranoid that he took the job of any retired minister. Power also affected the lesser magicians. They aligned themselves with the commoners to take over the government and rule. Demons were also sick of the magician’s power over them so they tricked the commoners and magicians alike to summon their spirit into their human body.

Poe uses symbolism a lot in his stories to make his writing have a more eerie feeling.”The Tell-Tale Heart” and “Masque of Red Death” both have symbols that induce fear into the main characters hearts.In The Tell-Tale Heart Poe writes “...for it was no the old man who vexed me but his evil eye “(75).The narrator kills an innocent old man for that hr thought the old man's eyes were judging.Although the old man just had cataracts ,the narrator could not stand the man for his eye he compared looked as vulture's eye.The narrator was afraid of this old man and his “evil eye”. The narrator was so consumed with the man's eye that he killed him just to get rid of the man's judgment. Though there were some repercussions with his immoral choices,he cannot take the terrible things
He saw a thief and gave her a job never thinking that she would end up becoming his sister- in law. Cal has had to become the strong man that the future king has to me. Only he is haunted by his step mother. In the entirety of the book I can saw that I enjoyed the character Mare by far seeing her grow and change as her entire world was turned upside-down. I may not agree with some of her actions, I still found her character the most relatable.
The author also conveys her ideas through a character who stands for an idea. She shows this through Tessie Hutchinson, who originally supported the the Lottery until fate made her husband choose the paper slip that would change her family's life forever. Jackson included this sentence to show how Mrs Hutchinson was feeling about the lottery initially, “ clean forgot what day it was, she said to Mrs Delacroix, who stood next to her, and softly laughed”. The author showed how Tessie initially was even happy and didn’t care about being late since she never once thought her family would get
Abigail lies about her ability to see spirits and so do many of the other girls by following her lies. On the other hand Proctor is deceitful both for cheating on his wife and for hiding it. Others like the Governor and ministers lie to themselves and also everybody else by saying they serve the cause of God's Justice. The world is full of love and desire but also has lots of hate and cruelty which all adds up to a world full of drama. The Crucible is an exciting thriller and shows many how lies end up catching up to you.
This was bitter irony since everyone thought Louise died from being excited to see her husband when she really died from not wanting to see him. “She thought of Leonce and the children.They were part of her life. But they need not have thought that they could possess her, body and soul.”(Chopin 137). Even though Enda moves out she still finds her herself thinking about Leonce and her kids. Despite the fact Enda overcame a lot of personal obstacles she sees dying as the only real way out her position in
Oedipus ' eyes works fine, but he 's completely blind of the ugly fate that gods have placed upon him. This blindness towards doom is made even more ironic by the fact that he was made king by his knowledge and insight. Oedipus was known as the person who solved the famous riddle of the Sphinx, a monster which terrorized the citizens. As the play proceed, we can see how much of a contrast between the two groups of character there is, even the messengers knows stuff that the king doesn’t. Sentences like “My son, it is clear that you don’t know what you are doing” (Sophocles 55) salutes to the ignorance of the supposedly “wise” king.
Since Grendel was born from evil he could never be happy which angered him when he heard all the people in Herot having a good time. Grendel was always sinning by murdering every night. In lines 1-2 it backs up my stating of Grendel being evil it says “A powerful monster, living down in the darkness, impatient.” Grendel was smart in many ways. One way Grendel was smart was because he knew when to strike. Grendel killed many of people undetected.
It is true that Daisy had loved Gatsby once, but it was all in the past. After Gatsby left to go to war, Daisy fell in love with Tom Buchanan. The reasons why Daisy married Tom was part of her love for him and the other part is because she loves the social position she is in when she is with Tom. Gatsby failed not because he was killed, but because Daisy’s love for Tom can not be changed with material things. All of the main characters have ideas for the perfect life and none were able to achieve them.
People thought of him just to be a monster, but if you really knew him from the inside you would know it wasn’t true. He probably had more emotions than humans themselves. Frankenstein was just a clueless monster. All humans saw was a monster though, and this would lead frankenstein to actually become a monster. He was broken that his creator left him so he was confused on what he was.
“Now, now, the little lark’s wings mustn’t droop. Come on, don’t be a sulky squirrel” (Ibsen 786). This quote reveals Torvald treats her as a child by calling her silly nicknames. On the other hand, though, women from this time just weren’t given the same respect as men. Also, Torvald did not understand how he was suppose to show his love any differently, because all the couples he knew were acting as how he was.
However, the narrator didn’t love the man named Fortunato that he killed and even had a history with him. But the way the narrator killed Fortunato was just as shocking as the murders in The Tell-Tale Heart and The Black Cat. The narrator chains Fortunato in an upright casket and bricks him in. One main similarity that the narrator’s story has to the others is that he basically gets away with the
