Dante also witnesses many promiscuous souls being forever pursued by hounds. The innermost ring is a burning desert where fire falls from the sky, raining down upon blasphemers and sodomites.

You are the devil himself, one who taunts and dangles bait in front of greedy men and grant them treasures which cannot be treasured. Begone, foul delusion; you cannot say that I have done and what I have not, for you do not know and no-one can know.” Lady Macbeth pushed through the horde of ghouls and bolted from her room, each person staining her clothes with blood. The resounding bang of the heavy wooden door against the solid walls of the castle sent the guard outside her bedroom jumping from shock. She sprinted through the long hallway, but there was something about her pace which shocked the men she passed by.

The Vicious Imperialist The age of imperialism was a period of time when the sinister creatures dispersed around the world under the cloak of darkness. Holding sharp-penetrating bullet guns, the white, pale European vampires went around to drain the citizen’s blood, sabotage the lands and haunt down the natural resources. The world was shattered into pieces and all that left were anarchy, choler, misery and resentments. Imperialism was no doubt malicious and had only negative impacts on the colonized countries.
However, the monsters are not as interested in the indulgence of juicy steak, wine, or even the enticing and mystical lotus flowers, but rather in human flesh and blood. The Cyclops, Polyphemus, that Odysseus encounters on his journey gruesomely devours many sailors, tempted by the thought of being able to consume human “innards, flesh, and marrow bones.” The Cyclops continues his feast, “filling his belly with manflesh and great gulps of whey” (IX 312-322), as he greedily causes the demise of many sailors. This passage further reminds readers of the negative consequences of succumbing to the temptation of overindulging. It also acts as a clear warning to readers that feasting in excess is animalistic and inhuman.

However, nature will prevail and go above humanity, even if humans treat the earth like an experiment or their playground.

Some interpreters have seen it as Christian story.
(Beowulf, 102). Basically, Grendel was constantly a threat to the community, which is why it was quite a task to rid of him. Eventually, Beowulf kills nine sea monsters and faces his battle with Grendel.

Fallout A grey haze, mixed with brown mist and a tinge of yellow. That’s what the land looks like in the age ahead. Depressing, desolate, dreadful, and even demeaning in most places, the shattered corpse of Washington DC was afflicted with much the same disease as the rest of America. Other cities like Pittsburgh, Chicago, and Las Vegas have had a nasty dose of the irradiated scourge as well, some less than others, but still deadly. Off in the distance the sound of a giant scorpion fighting with a pack of over-sized mole rats could be heard rustling in the stale breeze.
