As they fought, the shelter “became a complication of snarls and crashes and flying limbs” (167). Jack’s group would rather attack others than ask politely in order to get what they want. Clearly, the boys’ desire for meat caused them to become
“ (9.89-99). The chant Jack 's tribe say is brutal and not typically thought of a child to say, thus showing how much an effect of not having civilized characteristics can do to a human. Jack’s tribe end up killing Simon which shows how the boys have gone completely savage, simply killing for the thrill and wanting to have the accomplishment of killing a living being. Simon represents people’s kindness and cooperativeness, so for the boys to kill Simon makes Jack’s tribe no longer have a connection towards others or themselves as well. When Jack was making a mask, “He looked in astonishment, no longer at himself but at an awesome stranger.
Furthermore, Grendel is able to devour Hondscio during Beowulf’s attempt to defeat Grendel. Since Grendel’s accomplishments only affected the lives of a few people, Sauron’s destruction of thousands of lives makes him more monstrous. Lastly, Sauron’s motives for destruction are more malicious than those of Grendel’s. Grendel’s motives for assaulting Heorot keep are those that match his animal instincts; to search for food. In contrast, Sauron’s motives are purely evil as he desires total domination of Middle Earth.
That is was just the evil side of their human nature. When the Lord of the Files confronted him in the form of the pig, it shows how natural good can be overwhelmed by large amounts of evil. This later happens again when the hunters brutality murder him. He knew that the beast was their own fear that lies within. “You knew, didn’t you?
He struck the men with a lightning bolt and killed them. The punishment of their temptation was death. I think Homer thinks that temptation, whether resisted or not, still comes with a price. Gluttony, lust, and, jealousy are major deadly sins in ancient Greece. I don’t think the Greeks found anything less tempting than we do.
The antagonist is vicious as he rips the Geat apart and drinks his blood, as well as chewing him up for consumption. Grendel’s behavior of murder and violence leads the reader to be less likely to feel any sorrow for him when Beowulf defeats him. Because he is portrayed to be thirsty for blood and death, he fits being an Anglo-Saxon monster, while also being very relatable to modern monsters. In movies like Insidious or Lights Out, the leviathans of today kill in horrific ways, much like Grendel, just for the sake of killing. Monsters of Anglo-Saxon epics are extremely violent and capable of cruel and murderous behavior, not very different from contemporary

Odysseus’ slaughter of the suitors was an act of justice and revenge. The act was revenge because slaughtering 108 men for courting your wife and eating your food is insane. If someone did that present-day, society would frown upon the person who committed such an act. It would be considered mass-homicide and the person would be jailed for life. On the other hand, the act is a form of justice because of the setting of the story.
Jack shows his evil multiple time throughout the novel, one of his most savage displays is when Robert says “You want a real pig... because you’ve got to kill him.” Jack replies “use a littlun.”(114). The comment made by Jack and the hunters is evil and savage because Jack’s comment is ultimately resembling a human sacrifice. Jack loses his sense of humanity after the rock strikes piggy and he destroys the conch (181). Jack cannot pay any attention to his murder of Piggy because he is too busy chasing Ralph trying to kill him also. Jack’s evil is an allegory of the present world that the boys live in, the hunters are also an allegory of evil because they are like the army.
So the narrator gets the old man and cuts him up and hides the parts under the floor (2). These sentences show violence because of the narrator killing the old man and amputating him. Also, the narrator is insane because he assumes that killing the old man is the right thing to do. The narrator has a violent point of view, “The mentally disturbed narrator explains, in an attempt to prove to the reader that he is not mad, how he
