In simple terms, Mario Puzo has kept the image of the epic hero, especially, when considering the relationship that is apparent in the heroes’ thirstiness for revenge, and ultimately their passion for glory and pride. Under revenge, both Achilles and Michael Corleone restore their pride through murder, one among his army and the other among the famous New York families. As modern audience, we cannot afford but to remark that in a modern world where Mario Puzo’s masterpiece is chronicled revenge by murder is unacceptable by law, it is the concern of the police forces. However, we see that law and order is absent in Puzo’s novel, it is instead a world driven by chaos and social disobedience. This reminds us of the epic atmosphere, where man battles against man, and where stable institutions that are supposed to regulate their actions are absent.
Insider The Outsiders Pony boy is very rational, he is the one of the characters in the book impressed me deeply. Violence was much more powerful than we imagine… He is a member of the Greasers, and almost like a hood to steal things and have a gang fight once in a while. However, he changed.

Hamlet was plotting his uncle’s murder, something the majority of people would view as completely insane, but it is how he plotted this murder that makes it clear that he is not mad. He deceives his friends and family into thinking he has gone completely mad, but it is his actions that prove to the reader that he may not be as mad as the king and queen believe. His unwillingness to kill Claudius because “he is a-praying.. And so he goes to heaven; And so I am revenged: And so he is scanned:” (III/iii/76-79) proves that he still has some reason and has put some thought into this murder. Also, it is how Hamlet acts towards his love, Ophelia, that proves that he may not truly be mad, especially in Act 5 during her funeral when he returns and states “I loved Ophelia. Forty thousand brothers could not with all their love make up my sum.”(V/i/262-264) Hamlet attempts to deceive the entire kingdom into labelling him as mad so that they would think nothing of him.

This one-sided story by the narrator, Montresor, leads to a suspenseful conclusion not only that Fortunato’s insults perhaps are minor, but also that Fortunato may not recognize the issues at all. This lack of evidence and unrealistic friendship lead readers to believe that Fortunato does not deserve to be buried alive. Montresor could be just a sadistic character who wants to murder his enemy for
Poe is thought to be one of the most successful writers of horror. This is right in terms of his stories that he had written. The best examples could be “The Cask of Amontillado and “The Tell Tale Heart”. These stories were written in the view of murderers and are first person-limited. And these stories have both similarities and differences by means of themes, motifs, symbolism.

Washington Irving, this author is famous for his great stories. Three of which are The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, Rip Van Winkle, and lastly The Devil and Tom Walker.
