Since Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson were at the Stoke Moran Manor to find out what had killed Julia Stoner the day before her wedding. When the snake had jumped onto Dr. Roylott, it killed him. Even though Sherlock had made the snake do this act of terror by lighting a match, therefore startling the snake, Sherlock did not want neither the snake nor Dr. Roylott to die. Sherlock Holmes was not known as a killer; he thought of himself that way when this occurred.
Aylmer does not seem integrally evil at the beginning of the story; he is described as a brilliant scientist, and it is palpable he loves his wife. A couple days after he married her he becomes the antagonist of the story. In this circumstance he begins to forget how beautiful Georgiana is and instead only focuses on her birthmark. His constant undermining of her self-image is pure evil camouflaged as loving criticism. His stupidly wicked experimentation on her body cause her definitive death.
Because of this reason, Squeaky never leaves her older brother alone so that he does not get in trouble or get lost and nobody may cause him any sort of trouble. She plays the role of Raymond's, friend, sister and bodyguard. This relationship between Raymond and Squeaky clearly expresses the significance of a familial relationship in their lives. I also like how Squeaky understands her brothers problems and stands out for him in the story because she states “And I’ve got an roomful of ribbons and medals and awards.
Bloody, vicious, and gut wrenching deaths occur frequently across the world. Human often contribute to the demise of various living things in order to ensure their own survival. People capture and execute animals for nourishment and protection. In the short story “The Rattler,” a man must decide whether or not to spare the life of a rattlesnake that he encounters during a walk in the desert. He chooses to slaughter the snake, resulting in the snake’s gory death.
The color yellow appropriately represents Death. Death is the result of being killed which makes him a ‘good guy’ that should not be feared (Page 6). In short terms Death is a nice caring guy who has a job he doesn’t want that he is tired of (Page 5). Yellow represents deaths good attitude and character; despite what many say or believe about him. The Book Thief represents Death in the book because Liesel’s story as the book thief draw him in and he becomes very interested in her.
He did all he could to stop the spread of vengeance and corrupting in Salem though he came too late. Even with him committing adultery, he continued through the end to be a hero with the best intentions in mind for justice and peace in his
Anne Frank once said, “How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world.” The Holocaust was a traumatizing event for millions of innocent people, however, many found comfort by remaining calm and relaxed, for example, Anne Frank in the “Diary of a Young Girl”. In addition, politicians also did their best to encourage positivity, such as shown in “Blood, Toil, Tears and Sweat” by Prime Minister of England Winston Churchill. Keeping this mindset, they were able to maintain decent health, and most importantly, were able to persevere through any challenge that presented itself. Though some may argue that compromise is the best way to respond to conflict, in order to obtain peace and compromise, one must first have a positive attitude.
The next pieces of the theory account to JonBenet’s 9 year old brother, Burke. Both Patsy and John claim that Burke was asleep in his room for the entire time. Yet he is clearly heard in the background of the 911 call saying “what did you find” (Was child beauty queen JonBenet murdered by brother?) Based on all of these facts, her family being involved in her murder remains a
The reader obtains a clear image of the characters which allows for the reader to be more involved in the novel. Of course, the characters are what construct the story into what it is, without the reader knowing what the characters are like then the story would be nothing but merely boring. In The Grifters, Thompson allowed for the actions of the characters to be more touching or shocking. As the reader learns in the beginning Lilly is nothing but malevolent to absolutely everyone including her own son. Therefore, “her nominal heartlessness” that the reader becomes familiar with, allows for the reader to feel compassion for Roy (Thompson 10).
The main characters Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson are hired by Dr. James Mortimer to investigate the curse which is believed to be the cause of Sir Charles’ heart attack, resulting in his death and in addition, to protect Sir Charles’ only heir, Sir Henry Baskervilles.

Sgt. John Wilson is a biography set in the 1900 's, it is a story of tragity and ill fated love. What once was a promising budding romance ends at the hands of a compulsive liar who is constantly out running his last lie. John Wilson, an emigrant from Scottland, leaves his pregnant wife and a child behind to seek out a new life in
On page 47, he explains that he is not a murderer because he gives his victims fair warning by “snapping the twig,” before he appears. Likewise, I liked Brent’s speech on page 61, which gives the audience an in-depth look at the way Brent sees the world, rather his disdain for society. Brent projects the fault onto his victims for their deaths due to their inability to detach themselves from material items and their overall lack of appreciation for the freedom they have to live and breath each second of each day to the fullest.
At this point in the story I couldn’t help but feel extremely happy, and relieved for Jackson because all he wanted to do was get his grandmother’s regalia back, it was the last thing that he had of her. Sherman Alexie did a great job of building up the characters for this story, it showed me how important culture is and to do what you believe in. Even though Jackson was homeless and did not have any money or family he was determined to get that money. The friends that Jackson meets throughout this story were, to me, excellent.
It was wrong for the doctors not to tell Charlie the risks of the surgery because one of them was him dying. Charlie realized the horrible mistake he made, and would probably end up paying for it, even though it was the doctor’s fault. Charlie had no regrets for having the surgery done to him, because he achieved his goal of becoming smart. Before Charlie started to regress, he tried to correct what went wrong with the surgery because he was the only one in the institute who could. Charlie knew that he was happier when he was ignorant, because he could not see how cruel the world actually was.
Arthur seemed very trustworthy and Hester did not think he would tell the townspeople about their sin. She did not think he would tell about their sin because it would make him look bad as the town’s reverend by committing adultery. Arthur helped Roger with his experience in the medical field. Arthur did this because he was a nice man, until Roger wanted to get revenge on him. Hawthorne states, “In Dimmesdale’s secret closet, under lock and key, there was a bloody scourge…fasting for days…stayed awake for vigils” (133).
