One night a new cat comes along and the previous incident reoccurs, despite the man not wanting it to happen. The man ends up killing his wife instead of the cat and promptly buries her in the basement wall. The cat, who jumped into the wall, starts to howl when the police arrive and gives the man away. The theme in both stories is that of good versus evil. Evil lurks in the hearts of all, and sometimes people act upon it.
In the “Tell Tale Heart” the narrator kills the man that (who he loved) he worked for. He inequitably killed him because he dislikes the old man’s bad eye. The narrator insists the eye gives him chills and on the eight night of watching him he killed the man. The narrator is unreliable because he is murder and he stores the body under the floor board, and there are other places he could have put it. There is also an unreliable narrator in the story “The Black Cat” he inevitably killed his wife and injured his cat.
The story continues with an event that is unfortunately far more terrible and unexpected than the previous events. The narrator allows his increasing anger towards the second black cat to lead him to killing his wife. His temper and hatred that began with the second black cat eventually ended up impacted him and his wife. The narrator states, “I withdrew my arm from her grasp and buried the axe in her brain. She fell dead upon the spot, without a groan” (Poe 5).
In the gruesome short story “The Black Cat” by Edgar Allen Poe a nameless narrator tells his story of his drunken and moody life before he gets hung the next day. The intoxicated narrator kills his favorite cat, Pluto and his wife with an axe. Soon enough, the narrator gets caught and there he ends up, in jail. Although, most readers of “The Black Cat” have argued the narrators insanity, more evidence have shown that he is just a moody alcoholic with a lousy temper. In this gothic short story, some believe both of the killings are from the narrator’s insanity, but more evidence has proved differently.
Later Lady Macbeth starts sleepwalking from the guilt of helping Macbeth kill all of the people. This is a good example of guilt because he feels so bad that he isn't even making sense. He is doing strange things like talking in third person and just saying random
He yells, stalks, and questions his every move because he suspects that Montag is hiding books in his house. Towards the end Montag is found guilty of having books and is forced to burn down his house. Although he actually burned his house, Millie was still inside and afterwards the hound was forced to attack Montag. It jumped at him and started to stick the needle in his led and inject the serum yet Montag was still holding the flamethrower and used it to destroy the hound. Once he destroyed the hound he began to burn Beatty alive.
Pluto, God of the Dead In Edgar Allan Poe's The Black Cat, an unnamed narrator utilizes the flashback method from the first person perspective in order to give his version of events that led him to murder his beloved cat and inevitably his wife. The narrator explains his story without any expectation of belief by his readers. He describes theses events as being horrifying and almost superstitious in nature. Throughout the story there are instances where the two black cats have a questionable purpose and it raises a few suspicions. Firstly, are these black cats nothing more than simple house cats?
Holy shit! You should be dead'" (306)! The whole town thinks that Mad Jack is well mad, that he killed a young lady in cold blood and hasn't left his house ever since. So the rumors spread, changing a little every time someone told the tale.The reasooon that Charlie stole some of the peaches is because Warwick Trent, Charlie's
When things happened in the town, they blamed Boo for it. For instance, " when people's azaleas froze in a cold snap, it was because he had breathed on them." No matter what the situation was, he was the one to blame. Even Jem, who has never seen him, was judging Boo because of all the rumors that the town people said about him, like how Jem says he "dines on raw squirrels and any cat he can catch." He even goes on to say how he looks like, "a long jagged scar that ran across his face; what teeth he had were yellow and rotten; his eyes popped, and he drooled most of the time."
For the reason that, in the story after the car accident the cat clung to Bailey’s neck and he became violent and flung the cat to the tree. I felt as if this was a way of taking his anger and agression towards his grandmother because the cat reminded him of her. After the accident, this was the moment where the grandmother was faced with veracity and temptation. The Misfit in the story is like an evil fallen angel, a man who knows the gospel and dosen’t accepts it. Soon after the story gives a creepy explanation of the Misfit’s arrival by saying, “It was a big black battered hearse-like automobile...the driver looked down with a steady expressionless gaze to where they were sitting, and didn't speak.” Visualizing that event reminds me of death and funeral.
