He tells Romeo that if he goes he could meet someone new and forget about Rosaline. This proves that he should be punished because if he would have just let Romeo cry by himself none of this would have ever happened. In Romeo and Juliet Benvolio should be punished. In addition to Benvolio the apothecary should also be punished for the tragedy of Romeo and Juliet.
However, when the word is directed to Macbeth by Banquo or vice versa, it has meaning to signify impending doom. As in scene 1, the way Macbeth asks Banquo “Goes Fleance with you” makes Macbeth suspicious as if he is trying to learn too much about their ride. He seems to plan a murder of them both during the nighttime when they return, giving night a bad connotation. This usage of night also continues onto scene 2 when Macbeth hints at Banquo’s murder to Lady Macbeth. Here, for Macbeth only, night has a positive meaning to him as his worries and miseries would be ended when Banquo is killed off in the night.
For this occurrence, he again shows little regret or repentance. After Gretchen’s brother learns of her actions with Faust, he meets Faust in the streets and Faust agrees to a duel that ends with Valentine dying. Throughout the whole poem, Faust continues to make decision based on the impulses he has and continuously following Mephistopheles wherever he leads with very little signs of regret. I relate this to what Daniel Wieman was saying in his presentation when he spoke about the decisions Faust was making. “Faust always wanted more satisfaction, and was never content with himself”.
Characters in book and movie are expressed in a way where they are brave and confident for what they believe in, but Rainsford shows how he is against General Zaroff by addressing his game as murder, and Kane tells his bride he does not run away from his problems. Having an antagonist in each of the stories show how evil they both can be, but in “The Most Dangerous Game” General Zaroff is more discreet about his game, and in High Noon Frank Mitchell wants everyone to know he is coming to get his revenge on Kane. The setting has the same idea with Rainsford and Kane being deserted and left alone, but it is different because Rainsford is stranded on an island with few people, and Kane is in a town filled with townspeople. For the most part, “The Most Dangerous Game” and High Noon have just as much similarities as differences even if they have nothing in common when you first see or read
We can infer that while on the yacht, feeding a human being to animals would never have occurred to him, and if it had, that he would have treated it like “grisly...cold-blooded murder.” Revenge also did not seem to be an important aspect to him before becoming the subject of Zaroff's dangerous game, but when he returns and encounters Zaroff in his bedroom, he soon resumes the hunt, this time with Zaroff as the prey. Rainsford compromises his own morals by continuing the game, and he even seems to enjoy killing his new human prey, resting comfortably in Zaroff's “very excellent” bed after killing the general and feeding him to the hounds. Thus, the reader realizes that perhaps Rainsford may have decided that hunting humans is not so “barbaric” after

Brutus continuously mentions that Caesar was ambitious. In his famous quote he says, “As Caesar loved me, I weep for him; as he was fortunate, I rejoice at it; as he was valiant, I honor him; but, as he was ambitious, I slew him.” Brutus uses the repetition of ambitious to emphasize the conspirator 's reason for murdering Caesar. By repeating the word “ambitious” he makes sure that the audience knew exactly why Caesar had to be killed. This helps to create the specific effect of justifying the conspirator 's actions because it gives the audience a solid reason for why Caesar was dangerous.
Before deciding the pay-offs it is important to take note of the utility functions of each player. Magnussen seems to have the upper hand since all the information is stored in his mind and there’s nothing Mycroft or Sherlock have to destroy. Thus his utility is derived from the pleasure he receives by playing with Sherlock and John. He says: “I would like to punch your face John”; after flicking John’s face he says, “I could do this all day”. He also mentions that he is a businessman and he takes advantage of people by finding their pressure points and thus exploiting them.
Brutus is without a doubt the most noble character in this play. Nonetheless, his impeccable sense of morality also blindfolds him to other people’s sordid motives and makes him easy to be manipulated. Indeed, Brutus is easily manipulated by Cassius in Act 1, Scene 2. In hope to convince Brutus to join the conspirators, Cassius says “Men at some time are masters of their fates: The fault, dear Brutus, is not in our stars, but in ourselves, that we are underlings” (1.2.150-152). As a result, Brutus starts to believes that it is his job to murder Caesar, as he says in Act 2, Scene 1: “It must be by his death: and for my part, I know no personal cause to spurn at him, but for the general” (2.1.14-16).
George has realized that sometimes things in life change the way you dream and think George did the right thing by killing Lennie. Hope can only get you so far because although Lennie had hope that does not mean he had changed. This was the right thing for George to do because he did not want his best pal suffering getting killed by someone else. George did this deed because Lennie was dangerous and he kept making the same mistakes over and over again. Lennie could not help himself because of his mental disability.

In Edgar Allan Poe’s “The Cask of Amontillado,” irony is applied throughout to help foreshadow future and give more of an insight to the readers, all while adding some humor. Irony is divided into three main types: dramatic, situational, and verbal. Poe uses dramatic irony when he has Fortunato dress as a jester, “a tight-fitting parti-striped dress and his was surmounted by the conical cap and bells” (Poe). The get-up makes Fortunato looks foolish and foreshadows his actions of following Montresor into the catacombs to taste some wine. Montresor even compliments the outfit and says “My dear Fortunato, you are luckily met” (Poe), but it was not Fortunato who was in luck, but Montresor who would gain profit of their meeting.
