They are all dancing and chanting, "'Kill the beast! Cut his throat! Spill his blood!'”(152). At this point in the book the inherent violence that has been building up through the whole story because of anger and fear takes over and they kill Simon. This shows how humans are inherently violent and without rules in place violence creates a society so defective that it drives people to kill their friends.
When he illustrates the gas bombing of the soldiers through his powerful words he conveys the drowning man as an unbearable scene. When he states how the man was "gargling from the froth-corrupted lungs, obscene as cancer, bitter as the cud" he portrays him as being on the verge of death. In comparing the man 's desperate actions to something as dreadful as cancer causes the tone to automatically depict hopelessness. Also, when Owen speaks of how the man 's "hanging face" was like a "devil 's sick of sin" he shows how tired the man is of fighting for his life when there is no foreseeable future for him. The tone is also evoked through the horrific imagery that is used to present the crudeness of war.
Given all the evidence in the story there’s no doubt about it that Doodle’s death was because of his brother’s dislike for him, self-pride, and decisions when Doodle needed his brother most. The Narrator is responsible for his brother, Doodle's, death because he never really liked him to begin with. William Armstrong (Doodle) was born a disabled child when the narrator was 6 years old. The narrator was wishing for a brother that he would be able to do things with and have fun with, but when the narrator was
Turning from a prideful boy to being merciful toward his dead brother. In fact, it all began when his brother was born, “with a tiny body which was red and shriveled like an old man’s” (595). Doodle is weakened and incapable of doing activities normal kids do at his age. The narrator encourages Doodle to keep on pushing, but no sooner does the narrator learn that pushing Doddle over his limitations will sooner or later kill him. The narrator kills Doodle indirectly, as a consequence of the lack of knowledge he has about Doodle’s medical issues, and as said before, being enveloped in pride.

Later on, Shelley further develops the theme in the way she makes the monster act after Frankenstein destroys his mate. Throughout the book, the creature’s feelings about Frankenstein lead him to be angry and murder all of Frankenstein’s closest friends and family. Finally, Frankenstein tries to hunt down the creature to kill him for revenge. In the beginning parts of the story, after Frankenstein creates the creature, Frankenstein sees, in a note from his father, that William has been murdered.

He even further proves his evil soul when he murders Basil without even thinking minutes later. Dorian had turned from harsh and selfish to a murder. Dorian Gray starts off as a harsh person who thinks about repairing his mistakes, but transitions to a selfish murderer who seeks pleasure, all because of Lord Henrys poisonous words. Dorian Gray ruined countless lives throughout the book and goes from breaking hearts and causing suicides, to killing his good friend Basil Hallward. As a result of Lord Henry’s influence, he begins to think only about himself and for his own benefit and pleasure and nothing of anyone else.
He is definitely suicidal, as evident through the unveiling of the rubber pipe, testimony that he has been trying to kill himself through his car crashes, and his final appearance on stage ending in death. He believes that he is important in the job that he no longer holds, and he never was very important in his occupation at all. He is also unaware of the fact that he has an issue, denying that he has ever seen the rubber pipe and ignoring the fact that he needs financial help. His decreasing ability to drive and remain focused on the road is also synonymous with psychosis. Biff's behavior causes him to believe that his son is spiting him, although all he is trying to do is help his poor father.

Fourthly, Mr. B confessed that he paid out of pocket for his father’s previous fender benders rather than contacting the insurance company for fear of legal repercussions. This piece of evidence is key because it shows guilt and that he knows that allowing his father to drive is wrong. Fifthly, Mr. B does not deny or argue with Dr. Y’s concerns, he simply yells and tells the doctor that his family was none od her business. Finally, Mr. B agreed to take steps to prevent his father from driving, but failed to stay true to his word when his father got into yet another accident. The difference with this particular accident was that it obviously was damaging enough to be published in a newspaper.
When he focused on survival, he no longer had any tears to give. The fight causes Elie to rid himself of all emotions and forget a connection with his father. This is wrong to forget your feeling of compassion, because it pains Elie that he could not cry for his father. Focusing on your own survival makes you forget compassion for those you
