So because of that it gives the viewers a cold and creepy feeling because this murder act goes against his/her humanity “A moment more and I had fettered him to the granite…He was too much astounded to resist. Withdrawing the key I stepped back from the recess.”, “No answer still. I thrust a torch through the remaining aperture and let it fall within. There came forth in return only a jingling of the bells. My heart grew sick; it was the dampness of the catacombs that made it so.
The Nazi’s dehumanized jews during day to day life in the holocaust making sure they felt worthless. They did this in Night many times from covering Eliezer and his fellow jews in their defecation, tattooing numbers resembling those on possessable items, and making them stand naked, totally vulnerable and without dignity. One might even think that the Nazi’s were envious of the happiness possessed by the
Harrison though, was mugged and blocked from a chance to experience happiness. Harrison found happiness only after finding himself. In the beginning of the passage, Harrison can be perceived as frightening and menacing. The people at the studio, seem to be “expecting to die”, as if his image portrays a powerful feeling of death. Negativity arises from Harrison, until he brakes free of the suppression “like [snapping] celery”.
Many died because of fire in the Holocaust, when Nazis burned bodies into the crematoria. Fire can also be a representation of hatred as it makes the prisoners hate the camps even more. Even though the camps are already terrible, the sight and thought of fire makes the prisoners seem more vulnerable to death. This is shown in the book when Elie thought that he was going to die by the
Emilia was also involved in the problem which ended her life in a matter of minutes. Once Iago had no other than to confess Othello finally realized what a big of a mistake he had committed.

The tragic deaths of Romeo and Juliet are mainly the fault oh Juliet herself. Although several other factors play a role, ultimately Juliet has to take responsibility for her own actions. Her parents are unreasonable for perpetuating the feud between the families and for trying to force Juliet to marry a man she didn’t love. Romeo was immature and hot headed and got himself banished from Verona for killing Tybalt. Friar Lawrence had the brilliant idea to mix a fake poison for a thirteen year old child in order to help her lie to everyone she loved.
Hollandsworth creates a feeling of fear by talking about the murder of JonBenet Ramsey by providing the opinion of Stacy Dittrich, a former detective, to explain the possible killer of Ramsey was a pedophile and goes on to talk about the real possibility of the girls being stalked at pageants (492). Hollandsworth creates fear when he provides a testimony from Brooke Breedwell, a beauty pageant contestant during the time of Ramsey, which describes her fear of being targeted by the same killer of Ramsey (492). This us of the scare tactic takes away from the argument because Hollandsworth is trying to get the reader emotionally involved. Additionally Hollandsworth indirectly uses hasty generalization when he uses a quote from Deborah Tolman, a professor at Hunter College and author of Dilemmas of Desire: Teenage Girls Talk about Sexuality: “no one wants to deal with the bigger picture, which is the day-to-day sexualization of all our daughter” (494). Here, it makes the assumption that everyone feels that his or her daughter is being
John Proctor seemed well respected in the town except he had one deadly secret sin, this being a secret affair with Abigail Williams, who was one of the leading accusers in this story. Abigail’s goal is to kill John’s wife Elizabeth so they may get married. She does this by blaming Elizabeth for witchcraft. In this time period, the ones leading the accusations had the most power due to the fear exhibited by society. Even though John was not accused he confesses his affair with Abigail to Danforth saying, “I beg you, sir, I beg you-see what she is...She thinks to dance with me on my wife’s grave...God help me, I lusted, and there is a promise in such sweat.” (Miller ).
The situation was too horrible for Ishmael, he “screamed at the top of [his] lungs and began to cry as loudly as [he] could, punching and kicking with all [his] might into the weak walls that continued to burn. [He] had lost [his] sense of touch. [His] hands and feet punched and kicked the burning walls, [he] couldn’t feel a thing” (Beah 95). In this moment, Ishmael lost almost any hope he had left of getting out of the war. Ishmael was mentally too far gone to have hope, and all he has left is revenge for his family.
I swallow and Mykel chokes on his breath. “I think I missed a spot. Here, let me try again.” Mykel bursts into more tears, until he is reduced to a blubbering mess on the floor. Corruption or not, I stand up and launch myself towards them, absolutely no idea how i’ll somehow get us out of this. The man throws the machete at me, missing me by half an inch, and landing it into a skull resting behind me.
The significance of war in John Wade’s life, has deformed his present state of mind and diluted the clarity of his daily thoughts and actions. The horrific events he experienced caused a terminal disease, as evident by his spastic fits of yelling “Kill Jesus”, running in-and-out of the bedroom he shares with Kathy, kicking and screaming as if he was possessed by a devil, and his unstoppable quest to end any life in his presence. John decides to acheive this by killing all plants in his home. As he waits for the pot to boil, he imagines himself, “kicking and gouging. He’d go for the eyes.
He decides to tell both of his friends, Maria and Tom. Tom instantly assumes that he’s crazy. Maria, on the other hand, doesn’t jump to that conclusion but instead, she seriously considers that he might actually be telling the truth. (Page 139) Everybody else always assumed he was just making it up, especially adults. When he had told his mother about how the people attempting the demon ritual had been taken to Hell she had just said, ‘You had me worried for a moment there.
Eventually, the Red Death, which Prospero had tried so desperately to evade, approached and killed him, so “now was acknowledged the presence of the Red Death. He had come like a thief in the night. And one by one dropped the revelers in the blood-bedewed halls of their revel, and died each is the despairing posture of his fall” (88). Because the castellated abbeys can be considered a part of Prospero’s mind, then this clearly shows that denying the existence of a problem will not magically resolve it, and could instead cause bigger and even more pressing issues. Poe is proving that even if a problem does not directly affect someone, it should still be acknowledged, confronted, and dealt with in one way or another.
