Also I slapped him because I can not call the police because they will put Soda and him in a boys home and they would never see me again. I look like my dad but act like my mom. Ponyboy hates me a little but I know I should be a little less strict. If anyone else dies from the gang are never going to beat the socs again in the rumbles especially if the person that dies is me. I love the gang and everyone in the gang because we all stick up for each other.
Hungry for fear. Afterwards, he went diving for pearls from his canoe, yet knew “pearls were accidents, and finding one was luck.” After he dives to find pearls, he risked his life for his family. Fate showed Kino the “Pearl of the World”. The scar dug deeper into Kino’s life because he knew that “it is not good to want a thing too much (or) it sometimes drives the luck away.” I was also an animal with little “heart”. The luxury made me entitled and selfish because my problems like not wanting to go to school were nothing compared to the kids begging on the streets to just get some money for their families.
For example Oedipus says, “ For whoever he was who killed that man would as soon kill me with that same violent hand.” although he is the killer. Another example of irony is when Oedipus declares no one is allowed to speak to the person responsible for the curse of thebes, he says “ I decree no one shall receive him or speak to him nor make him partner in prayers to the gods or sacrifices.” although he is the one who brought the curse upon them. The use of Symbolism brought the forth the key to Oedipus figuring out his identity. The scars on his feet highlight he has been in pain since birth. It also emphasizes his ignorance ,since the scars are the keys to figuring out his identity.
Then once they go out, many of the angry citizens brutally kill a poet named Cinna after mistaking him for the conspirator of the same name, showing how no one excused Brutus’ action because of his good intentions.

He had his men divide the women equally and told them to share them all. Odysseus stayed on an island with the time distorting goddess Calypso who loved Odysseus a lot and didn’t want him to leave so he decided to stay instead of going home he stayed there until he wanted to go back home. “I stormed the place and killed the men who fought. Plunder we took, and we took, and we enslaved the women, to make division, equal shares to all.” I think that Odysseus does not deserve to be a literary hero because he has done so many bad things to so many people that didn’t deserve to be hurt or killed. This is worth consideration because Odysseus doesn’t deserve to be a literary hero because of how he treated his men and others without respect, kindness, bravery, and he definitely did not put his life on the line to save others he put others lives’ on the line to save his
He accidentally kills small animals and causes trouble because of his strange habit, which leads Lennie to do the worst. When Curley’s wife tells Lennie to feel her hair, it results in him grabbing her, and snapping her neck without meaning to do so.

Houses were burned down, wagon trains, farms, and homes were raided.

A couple of hundred surrendered, but many of the others did not, and sought out for a negotiation instead. The governor did not have the power to negotiate, so he told them to wait at the sand creek while he figured it out. Instead of negotiating he was ordered to kill them, since the Native Americans had killed so many people.
This is why he denies his fondness of Abigail after his wife forced her out of their home. At the time he could not contain himself and made the decision to disregard his morals, wife and laws for the time being. The second sign of corruption within the society occurs when Mary Warren turns on Proctor and lies about the witchcraft being true. In fear of her life, Mary says, “My name, he wants my name. ‘ I’ll murder you,’ he says… I love God, I bless God… Abby, I’ll never hurt you more” (Miller 119).
Iago’s plan to manipulate Othello into making him believe Desdemona is cheating on him works,which leads to deadly results. Iago was a coward because he was scared that Cassio would call Iago out of his schemes, so he manipulates Roderigo to have him kill Cassio “He hath a daily beauty in his life that makes me ugly;and besides, the Moor May unfold me to him: there stand I in such peril:No, he must die,But so: I hear him Coming”(V.i.20-22). Iago yet continues to play dumb as if he doesn't know what is happening with Cassio and Roderigo, But then Iago kills Roderigo because he fears he will also tell others about him “O,damn’d Iago O inhuman dog!”(V.i.74) this made Roderigo to realize who Iago really is. Then Iago’s cowardliness became even more clear when he killed his wife (V.ii.231-242), this not only brings out his cowardliness but also his hatred for
This prophecy did not sit well with Macbeth. After a while, he became infuriated at the thought that his hard work and planning would be wasted on another.

He locked her up and would not let her leave. He was paranoid when it came to her asking questions of why she couldn’t leave and go above ground. Later on in the movie they discovered that the clothes that, Michelle the girl that he had abducted, was wearing actually belong to his dead daughter. Which just went on to show that he was not only crazy, but obsessive as well. When they did try to escape Howard was willing to kill them and dispose of their bodies by dumping them into acid.
In the first chapter George and Lennie had to remove themselves from a town named Weed because Lennie had caused trouble for the both of them. Lennie had an attraction to soft things, such as rabbits. In the book he reached out and grabbed a woman’s soft dress. The woman in question started screaming, as we find out later through exposition, and all he had done was hold onto her dress tighter frozen with fear and not knowing what to do. This action results in the woman screaming rape which leads up to them being run out of town by other men.
There were two groups of people that were also against each other but they decided that they had to join forces because one group did not have food and the other group did not have water because the Spackle destroyed their supply of it. The battle between the two is very damaging to both sides, but in the end neither side wins but they stop fighting and begin to work together. The book ended on a sad note because one of the Spackle was trying to kill the mayor. He thought he saw the mayor but it ended up being Todd who he shot in the chest. Todd’s noise stopped indicating that he had died but the Spackle attempted curing him and his noise would occasionally come back.
The Identities Lost In William Golding’s, Lord of the Flies, Roger, Ralph, and Jack begin to lose their identities on the island and chaos becomes inevitable. In the beginning of the novel, Roger “threw it [a stone] to miss” (Golding 62) at Henry knowing not to hit him, however that changes by the end of the novel when he kills Piggy with a large rock. This shows that as the story goes on, Roger slowly loses his idea of civilization and knowing society’s rules. This idea is important because it is extremely ironic in the sense that he knows if he hit Henry with pebbles he would be punished back home, however he ended up killing Piggy with a large rock after becoming a savage. Similarly, the leader, Ralph is one of the better behaved children
