The desire for vengeance grows when the Geats decide to hang his arm from the rafters. Beowulf’s bloodlust is so excessive he tries to murder Grendel in the most inhumane ways, and even goes to the extent of sacrificing one of his own men to satisfy his need to kill the undying Grendel. In Atalanta, Meleager and Atalanta go hunting and caught so many animals that they even attracted Artemis’ unwanted attention. Artemis therefore grew upset and “molded a huge boar, mud-colored, with red evil eyes” (177) Atalanta and Meleager obviously slaughter an abundance of animals to get Artemis’ attention. It is unclear why Atalanta becomes upset with Meleager after killing her brother bear, but she is excited to hunt with Meleager.
Boll weevil is similar to war, as they both typically harm people for a hateful cause. Boll weevil kicks Cecil several times after he kills him, to show his hate toward him for not giving the money.

On the other hand, before, when they were under Ralph 's government, he had rules that most people followed and that kept order.
In my opinion, in the novel, the red sweater symbolizes hatred, anger, cruelty, rage, or even a person who you will fear to approach just by looking at him because in the novel he is characterized as being an evil person who hates dogs and beats them like in this quote when it says: “He was beaten; but he was not broken. He saw once for all, that he stood no chance against a man with a club. He learned the
For example, Jack and the boys on many occasions have chanted about killing and have reenacted their hunting adventures. One time they went as far as hurting a kid with the
“Truly here are real savages by our standards; for either they must be thoroughly so, or we must be; there is an amazing distance between their character and ours” (158). Michel de Montaigne, takes a stand in The Cannibal, and says that the Brazilian’s didn’t follow the European views, and were barbaric. He definitely took how they were living, and analyzed it. Montaigne believed that people should not fight each other and tear them apart. The thought of fighting, and killing someone to the death sickened him, I conceive there is more barbarity in eating a man alive, than when he is dead; in tearing a body limb from limb by racks and torments, that is yet in perfect sense; in roasting it by degrees; in causing it to be bitten and worried
The creature was trying to help this girl, but he was punished because of his looks (101). This causes his fury to build into evil and bitterness: “Inflamed by pain, I vowed eternal hatred and vengeance to all mankind,” (101). The creature was in pain from being shot, and he vowed to get revenge against all humans (101). Without friends, the creature has felt no love or kindness from anyone, except from blind De Lacey (95-96). This need for friends has developed into him being evil; where as if he had friends, then he probably would not want to cause pain and misery upon everyone.

The Master 's dogs. It was like the devil himself and his henchmen were coming for her. " Oh no," May said to herself, "Not the dogs. " She tried to run, but it was too painful.
Everyone knows what they are doing, they are aware they are ending a life, and living a life of violence, but something brought them into the gang and they focus their attention on that one thing to execute the tasks given to them. Towards the end of the video, the girl’s killer says this about the gang he wasted his life defending, “We fight to protect territory that isn’t ours to begin with. We cover ourselves with guns to show we are tough, but inside we are weak.” Like all of those guys in jail, like the girl who became a rat, and Chester who agreed to be a part of the video, they get to a point where all the killing, violence and drugs take a toll on them and they want out. To most of them there is no “out,” because they know the task of getting out is extremely dangerous and there is a slim to none chance of completing it alive.
On Tuesday, Izzo was honored with Round Lake Park's Exceptional Duty medal for the way he handled the dangerous situation.

A Long Way Gone: War and Rehabilitation Following the life of Ishmael Beah in his autobiography, A Long Way Gone, readers experience how a young boy adjusted to drastic changes in lifestyles. The first- and perhaps more marked- change in lifestyle was when he became a child soldier in the Sierra Leone Army. The second was when he was taken away to be rehabilitated by UNICEF. Although there are several important components in both Ishmael’s life at war and his life during rehabilitation, it is his relationship with fear, how he deals with trauma, and his character in general which significantly share resemblances in each of the two mentioned lifestyles.
