It appeared the building was possessed by some evil power (Kubrick suggested it could be because the house was built on the Native Americans’ cemetery) that killed some of visitors and workers. The spirit or demon was interested in Danny’s abilities, but the boy used them to call help and save himself and his mother. Jack died (froze to death in the movie) and joined the ranks of people affected by the Overlook Hotel. Kubrick’s The Shining can be called the most famous screen adaptation of this novel.

An example of this is when Alvarez writes, “I saw the marks on Minerva’s throat; fingerprints sure as day on Mate’s pale neck. They also clubbed them good and dead… After they were done, they put the dead girls in the back of the Jeep, Rufino in the back” (Alvarez 303).

Through a series of prophecies, Oedipus learns that he himself killed the king, who is his father, and married his mother, the queen. This drives him to become a blind beggar when his wife/mother commits suicide. Throughout the play, one can see that Oedipus’s fate was determined by forces outside his control, as seen by his lack of agency over the events leading to his eventual fate. The intractable gods’ manipulation in Oedipus’s fate is clearly shown by the various prophecies delivered by various oracles and prophets in the play. The first word of god in Oedipus the King commands the citizens of the plague-infested city to “drive out, and not to leave uncured within this country, a pollution we have nourished in our land” (96-98).

He elaborates on killing an old man for the reason of him having an “eye of a vulture.” After 8 long nights of waiting and planning, the narrator forcefully kills the old man. Additionally, he disassembles the body, hiding each part under the floorboards, thus having the narrator refers to himself as “mad.” The main character should be put into a psychiatric institute and be watched under great surveillance based on the crimes he’s committed and due to his condition. To begin with, the narrator had a very unreasonable motive for killing the old man, in this way he is accredited as a madman.
