To begin, if she would have never screamed the Misfits name when she noticed him, he would not have seen them and felt like he had to kill the entire family and they might have gotten away. This is another instance of how the Grandmother is a
This could be a reason he kills so mercilessly and does not feel remorse for his victims. Kilcourse describes the Misfit’s Actions “This bringer of death is profoundly offended that the Giver of Life cannot be dismissed as a mere holy man or eminent ethical figure but must be adjudged as either the incarnate of God or else a wholesale fraud” (38). The Misfit is a nihilist, and he wants to believe that God exists, but he can’t and his merciless killing and crimes are a strike back at
Although it may look like he is guilty because he doesn’t want Sister talking to his other parishes, he could just be trying to save his name. You only have one name and your reputation can make or break someone. If it gets out that Flynn might be abusing boys he could be stuck with that title for the rest of his life. This could be the reason why he is being so defensive and wants the Sisters to just drop everything. He might also want to save Sister Aloysius’s reputation.
It’s not Mersault’s actions that influence his crime, but rather his lack of actions. His apathy for everything and the absurd causes him to place life to near or on no value whatsoever. Since he feels no remorse for Maman’s death, he certainly won’t feel anything for a stranger’s death even if he murdered him. The court looked into Mersualt’s private life and found details about the death of his mother. When Mersault’s lawyer is talking to him and it is said that, “The investigators had learned that I had “shown insensitivity” on the day of Maman’s funeral” (Camus 64).
The Misfit kills the grandmother, even though it doesn’t feel right to him, but the grandmother had already had her minute of forgiveness and redemption, and she grew more spiritual during her last dying moments than she had her whole life.” The grandmother who half sat and half lay in a puddle of blood with her legs crossed under her like a child’s and her face smiling up at the cloudless sky.” (Page 149) At the end her acts of kindness might have changed the Misfit too. “She would have been a good woman, “The Misfit said, “If it had been somebody there to shoot her every minute of her life.” (Page 150) This line shows that the grandmother got her redemption by confronting the Misfit’s evil, and being able to feel sorry for him. The Misfit recognized her kindness, even though he backed away from it. He also goes from saying that the only real pleasure in life is “meanness” to stating that it’s “no real pleasure in life.”(Page 150) Killing the grandmother troubles him. So this moment of grace worked on him too, and there might be some changes in his character.
Jem and Scout go across the street to Miss Maudie’s house to talk to her about it. In chapter ten, page 102., Miss Maudie tells the children,“You’re lucky, you know. You and Jem have the benefit of you father’s age. If your father was thirty you’d find life quite Different” This means that Miss Maudie stands up for her friend even though it might not make Jem and Scout happy. Another time that Maudie stood up for Atticus, is when he is trying to explain the main moral of the story, “it’s a sin to kill a mockingbird,” Maudie says, “Your father is right, mockingbirds don’t do one thing but make music for us to enjoy.
One reason that Mary killed her husband was that he wanted the divorce; while she was six months pregnant. In the other hand; Minnie murderer her husband because he had her oppressed and also her husband killed the canary that made her
In the route to spy on Boo, the kids climbed over the fence which invaded their neighbor’s territory. Also, they rudely spotted Boo by peeping through a tiny hole. Instead of asking to meet Boo, the kids automatically intruded onto the Radley’s land. Even though curiosity led the children, it encroached the rights of the Radley’s which broke the law. The third reason the kids should not have harassed Boo is because they tormented him.
Also in “ The Monkey’s Paw “ when mr. smith had his last wish which was for death and then the knocking at the door stopped. It’s a surprise because why didn’t he want his son to be alive again ? Why would he wish for him not to be alive . Last But not least , this story contained mystery. In “ Tell Tale Heart “ there's a mystery .
Also, she felt her judgment was always right if she had someone that would have keep her from talking continuously. The functions of the other family members are, her only son Bailey who she pushes around to get her way, bailey’s wife a young and quite person and the two unruly children John Wesley and June Star. 2. The Misfit philosophic position is he seriously inquiry’s the meaning of his life and his role in it the Misfit scrutinized his experiences to find a moral lesson in them. When the Misfit said “that Jesus thown everything off balance”, he is referring to the fact that he felt he should have been these to witness the event in doing this he would not have become the man he is now.
