The most convincing evidence is old recording of a conversation between Hodel and an unknown person which Hodel states “ Supposin i did kill the Black Dahlia. They couldn’t prove it now. They can’t talk to my secretary because she is dead” (Black Dahlia). With all this evidence pertaining to Dr. George Hodel it’s easy to see why some people say he was the killer. To sum up people believed that George Hodel used his medical experience to kill and dissect her and left her for dead then other people believed he killed more people and decompose them in his
Mary Maloney, who was a victim at first, but as the story goes on, she became a villain. This also happens to the husband, Patrick Maloney, who was a villain of the story at first, but became a victim of Mary at the end. Even the lamb itself is going through a metamorphosis. Lamb, which often used to symbolize innocence, is used by Mary as a deadly weapon to kill her husband, which is an irony. The metamorphosis also can be found on “The Black Cat” by Edgar Allan Poe, who has the anonymous narrator gone through a metamorphosis from the protagonist, and later on becoming the antagonist as we can see from his description about how he felt as the story narrated from the first person point of
Man, because the people that live in this town kill everything without hesitating. These where the main names that the director played with in Dead Man, as they helped him in sculpturing his mocking statue of the western American movies. As mentioned before, Dead man was produced to mock many aspects that existed in the American western films. Jim Jarmusch conveyed his message to his audience by using the main social aspects that were in the Nineteenth century America, such as stereotyping women, smoking tobacco, and death. The moment Blake enters the town of machine, one of the first things he sees is a woman having intercourse with a man, the second time is when he meets the woman outside the bar, he is invited to sleep with her although she didn’t know him, and the third woman is Nobody’s girlfriend sleeping with him in the forest.
The book illustrates the day to day life of George and Lennie, ranch workers who are living in the time of the great depression, who have a dream of owning their own ranch one day. Lennie is different than the other men because of his mental disability that doesn’t allow Lennie to understand what others do and say. George, his friend, took the responsibility of taking care of him. Because of his disability, Lennie has accidentally taken the life of Curley’s wife which then leads to the death of Lennie himself, also George and Lennie can’t accomplish their goal of owning a ranch. Steinbeck utilizes symbols such as Crooks and Curley’s Wife, the ranch and rabbits to portray the American Dream as impossible to catch.
The definition of mob psychology is when a group of people believe in a common idea. This may or may not have any logical sense towards it. Mob Psychology appears in this story when Tess Hutchinson is being stoned to death without anyone questioning the morality of her killing. A quote backing the idea of mob psychology is when the author says “Although the villagers had forgotten the ritual and lost the original black box, they still remembered to use stones.” This was said by the author to inform the reader that many aspects of the tradition was lost yet the part of stoning someone to death still lingers. The reason stoning was part of this society is presumably due to populism.
Amper agrees with this hypothesis when she writes, “the narrator must have killed his wife at the time he says he killed Pluto” (Amper 478). Further evidencing the narrator’s manipulation of the plot through the use of time occurs when the wife’s body was found at the end of the story. Once the body was discovered, the narrator adds, “[the body was] already greatly decayed and clotted with gore” (Poe 25). This slip of the tongue causes the reader to question the validity of the narrator’s supposed murder of his wife. If only three days had passed since the wife’s supposed accidental murder on the cellar steps, the body would hardly have begun to decompose, let alone be ‘greatly decayed,’ therefore indicating the wife was murdered much earlier in the story, pointing to when Pluto died.

When Atticus shot and killed Tim, this portrays as if Atticus is killing racism as a whole. After Atticus had killed Tim, Miss Maudie told Jem and Scout “I think maybe he [Atticus] put his gun down when he realized that God had given him an unfair advantage over most living things. I guess he decided he wouldn’t shoot till he had to, and he had to today,” (Lee 98). This quotation shows that Atticus did shoot Tim. However, when delving deeper into this excerpt, it suggests as if Atticus decided that now was the time to stop a threat to Maycomb County.
In John Steinbeck’s classic novella, Of Mice and Men, the readers are introduced to many characters and are shown how each character has their own idea of the American Dream. The first character we are introduced to in the story, is Lennie Small. Lennie’s life critically depends on the American Dream. His dream was to live on his own land with his best friend George Milton, tend rabbits, and have a pup. While waiting for his American Dream to become a reality, he was working on a farm for Curley and his wife.
The best example of Richards’s compulsive characteristics is the way he killed Frank. The Author writes very bluntly, “Richard shot Frank in front of the boys” (570). We can infer that the author writes this way, because he wants the reader to wonder why Richard is obsessed with his wife, and he loves her more than anything. She is his pride, and he will do anything to keep her, even if it means killing her lover in front of his children. This is why he is so compulsive when he kills frank.
