One of the themes in the story Frankenstein is “anger creates the want of revenge”. In Frankenstein this is shown when Victor thinks constantly of the monster on his wedding night, the monster kills Elizabeth because of Victors action, and when Victor chases the monster because of the monster’s action. I read a story once about a girl named Abby in fourth grade, she was learning cursive writing. They would have competitions to see who could write the best and the fastest. Abby was up against a girl named Taylor Brown, she beat her because she was a little faster.
Abigail Williams is a very cruel and bitter young lady, however, she has the largest impact in the play with all of the lies she tells convicting innocent people to be witches which cost them their lives. The Crucible, by Arthur Miller is set in Salem and is based on the Salem Witch Trials of 1692. As one of the main characters, Abigail is the most misread person in the play because all of the lies she tells make it seem like she is telling the truth. Abigail is a victim of her strict Puritan society; witnessing the death of her parents, living under her uncle’s roof, and hoping for a life with John Proctor can all contribute to making her into the character she becomes.
The two unwanted children sit all day in the late summer heat on a patch of dead grass, between the sidewalk and curb, property that Kathleen tells Lorraine does not belong to anyone. This scene illustrates the profound and enduring pain inflicted on the girls by their mother. In “Alchemy,” Miriam seems to react to Paula’s disappearance without much feeling. Miriam walks by Paula’s house and “stood on the sidewalk out front hoping that wherever Paula was, they would never find her and make her go back again” (73).

Mrs. Putnam is squealing to Reverend Parris that her babies died because Tituba allowed witchcraft in the
In the movie the dragon, which is Beowulf’s son, get angry when a slave finds the dragon cup that Beowulf had given Grendel’s mother. In the movie Beowulf and Wiglaf go to face the dragon alone; when they get to the cave Beowulf enters alone the dragon chases them back and there is a bunch of men shooting at it. Beowulf eventually kills the dragon because he found a spot on the throat of the dragon that was told to him by the former king years ago. The movie and the poem of Beowulf had very many differences. There are a lot more differences between the two that you would have thought.
It takes her awhile to get Lennie comfortable enough to talk with her, but, in the end, she makes him cave in and listen to her. As they engage in deep conversation, Curley's wife starts to tell Lennie about the success she could have as an actress and that she never wanted to marry Curley. As a result, Curley's wife begins lowering her defenses and makes a fatal mistake. It starts out as simple as letting him stroke her hair. She tells Lennie to " 'see how soft it is' " (90).
Now she will forever be alone. If she was trying to punish her husband it worked he has a whole new viewpoint on her. He said “Oh, I married a tigress, not a woman, not a wife, and yoked myself to a hater and destroyer.” (Euripides 204). He was the one that turned Medea into this monster.
In the book ‘Beowulf,' it becomes evident why the dragon is enraged after it is mentioned, "the might beast, / slept in those stone walls for hundreds of years; runaway slave roused it" (Beowulf 32.2279-80). The Dragon was angered because his treasure was stolen and he was awakened, so he flew above the town and thrashed his flames.

Although the monsters are displayed as vile creatures who show no mercy, they have a logical reasoning for their

The Dragon goes to Geatland and starts attacking the countryside, by setting buildings on fire at night. Beowulf goes to fight the dragon when he finds out that he is the one who set fire to the countryside. Beowulf gets into his last battle with the dragon. The reason that this is considered the last battle is because the Dragon kills Beowulf during the battle by stabbing him in the neck with a
