Comparison paragraphs using the CEC technique on The Most Dangerous Game and The Cask of Amontillado Violence is a crucial part of both The Most Dangerous Game and The Cask of Amontillado. The theme of these stories is murder, and, what is more, both murderers see nothing wrong with their actions. In The Cask of Amontillado, we know that Montresor is taking Fortunato to the catacombs to kill him. We see that Montresor’s intentions aren’t the ones he’s telling Fortunato from the beginning in the following quote: “he did not perceive that [Montresor’s] smile now was at the thought of his immolation”. In this quote, we see that Montresor’s intention is to kill Fortunato, rather than take him to taste the expensive wine.
Oedipus needed answers, so he sent for a blind seer named Teiresias to give him the answers he was looking for. Once Teiresias knows what’s going on he dreads to tell Oedipus that he is the killer. The two men go back and forth until Oedipus says something that triggers Teiresias “you planned it, you had it done, you all but killed him with your own hands: if you had eyes, I’d say the crime was yours, and yours alone” (1.332-334). Oedipus still given the information and basically the whole truth is too caught up in his head and ignorant to the facts. This was an example of the irony that Oedipus is ‘blind’.
Although Perry is responsible for the murder of four innocent people, Perry’s actions do not reflect on who he is as a person because he is easily influenced, therefore; showing how easily people can be pressured into doing something they would not typically do. Dick, a violent, cold-hearted, manipulator, has molded Perry into the person he is today. As Perry is a follower, Dick has taken advantage of that by turning Perry into the cold-blooded killer he is today. Capote displays Dick’s manipulation of Perry through symbolism to make evident that while Perry did pull the trigger on four innocent people, although the fault does not entirely lay on him, as he was taken advantage of by Dick. As Capote gives insight to Dick’s viscous personality, he symbolizes Perry to further display how Dick manipulates him.
He pulls at the heartstrings of Victor’s emotions but Victor can see the true evil that is within him. “But it is true that I am a wretch. I have murdered the lovely and helpless; I have strangled the innocent as they slept and grasped to death his throat who never injured me or any other living being,” had mentioned the monster after Victor’s death (197). The monster claims that he was unloved, and he was right in that regard, but that does not form evil. Evil is formed by the weakness of one’s mind, not neglect.
Berkowitz expressed that his purpose behind murdering was so he could "keep the demons quiet." He claimed that the evil demons in his mind would not quit tormenting him; with a specific end goal to dispose of them, he started doing what they needed. This mental deterioration is just a single indication of deep psychological disturbance. Alongside this, Berkowitz also said that when dogs howled, he was convinced that these dogs were demons asking him to kill women. Another example of his mental disturbance affecting his life appeared when he was an adult.
The Creature also realizes that the best way to gain revenge on Victor is to hurt those who Victor love, a twisted revelation stemming from the Creature's own limited experiences with companionship. However, through this barbaric murder, the Creature shows one of his most humanizing qualities: his insecurity about his appearance. This insecurity about his appearance makes him relatable, as if he is not just an artificial creature but
In this particular story for instance, the ‘murder’ around which the entire story revolves, seems to be a proclamation that emerged from the “superego” of the murderers in the category of ‘ID’, ‘Ego’ and ‘Superego’. However, the murder that took place as a result of an awkward relevance of brotherly relation with a dear friend considering the killing of Anderson as a moral obligation of fulfillment of a friend’s desire. Besides that, Al and Max seem to be on the face of the face of holding no personal grudge against the supposed victim. Yet, these ‘two killers’ are distinctively drawn towards the “superego” that rests within every individual and hence, in their situation the psychoanalytic view takes
He does this as to not raise any suspicion towards his actions or placate any scrutiny. Madness and insanity is the highlight in this story, there is a very superficial reason as to the death of Fortunato. These are the same characteristics of a psychopath killer. No reason besides what the psychopath believes is right. This leads into the next story by Edgar Allen
They feel free to reclaim the freedoms that have been denied them and they take revenge on the men that have hurt them by putting themselves and their friendship first. Both females do not follow what the men tell them to do, but rather become the ones who have the upper arm. The theme of criminality becomes clear in Thelma and Louise because the film supports the idea that there is a flaw in the way criminality is defined by the U.S. legal system. According to U.S. law, for example, Louise has committed a homicide by killing Harlan, since Thelma was technically "safe" when she did it. Despite the fact that we, in the audience, are pretty much right there with Louise, the legal system is not set up to pardon her for her actions, quite the opposite.
In both of these stories there is a narrator who lets a human being get killed. Both narrators gives reasons why the killers committed those crimes. Both characters are intelligent but also insane no matter how hard they do deny it. We come to that conclusion because these both men want to kill people who indeed had done nothing to them. Fortunato and Montresor are close friends and
What drives a serial killer to their breaking point? What is it that makes them start killing? Nature and nurture are both key elements. They both play their part in turning a once innocent person, into a psychopath. Which drives a serial killer more though?
There are services which are there to protect people. Let the police deal with those bad guys. Guns are not needed. Bear arms will only bring harms to the society. The significant issue of bear arms depends on the easy access to guns which are utilized by mentally ill and insane people whose intentions are not to self-defense, rather are to kill others
A mission oriented serial killer has a general goal in mind when they pick and murder their victims. The mission-oriented serial killers are usually looking to decimate a certain group of people usually involving victims that have political and or religious ties. Unlike the Visionary serial killers mission oriented serial killers usually do not have mental disorders or hallucination/visions that influence their acts. The mission-oriented killer is able to function and blend in normally without bringing attention to him/her self. They are very organized and are a great
