Finally, the use of irony is embedded throughout the poem. The title of the poem, “Ballad of the Landlord” suggests that the poem will be told from the landlords point of view. We would envision the poem will be the woes of the landlord to glorify himself. It is ironic that the poems narrator is the tenant. The unexpected outcome with the tenant going to jail and having bad press even after the landlord illegally refused to make basic repairs on his apartment for his tenant is also ironic.

Elie Wiesel uses cruelty in his memoir Night to emphasize the barbaric treatment towards the victims of the holocaust; in addition to, how cruelty develops his character throughout the story. For one thing at the beginning of the novel Elie is extremely religious, but after he arrives in the concentration camp he starts losing his faith. For example, “For the first time, I felt anger rising within me. Why should I sanctify His name?

A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur’s Court, written by Mark Twain, tells the tale of Henry “Hank” Morgan and his adventures in sixth century Arthurian England. Throughout his adventure, Twain’s derision for the Romantic literary style is illuminated through Hank’s no-nonsense assessment of situations and his critical opinion of the English nobility. The pitiful and unflattering reality of the Arthurian nobility and Mark Twain’s disdain for romantic literature are portrayed through Hank’s quest to rescue Sandy’s fellow ‘damsels’ in distress from the clutches of their ogre captors. Twain mocks the romantic writers by imitating their flowery, fanciful, and idealistic call to adventure. “Her mistress was a captive in a vast and gloomy castle,

Moliere, in his play Tartuffe, portrays religious hypocrisy through Tartuffe the hypocrite. Early in the play Tartuffe reveals his character when he is observing Dorine and calling to his manservant. “Hand up my hairshirt… with poor wretches there.” (Act III, Scene 2, lines 1-4) Dorine criticizes Tartuffe because humble Christians, do not flaunt their good deeds.

House was like his “Time Out” a place for him to come back to to get a breather There is within me (and with sadness I have watched it in others) a knot of cruelty borne by the stream of love, much as our blood sometimes bears the seed of our destruction, and at times I was mean to Doodle “ foreshadowing doodle's death.” Setting Home is the place of comfort for Doodle, where he is able to be sheltered, before being forced to engage in activities he is not able to perform
Evil is something that can be hidden within oneself and brought up depending on the situation. An example of when people are shown to be evil is in The Most Dangerous Game by Richard Connell. When the main character Rainsford becomes the very thing he did not want it to become because the evil ways of the island have changed his views for the worst. The shift in Rainsfords views is shown many time throughout the text but greatly when the narrator states “ Rainsford decided he had never slept in a better bed” (Connell 15). When the narrator says this it implies he is not phased over killing a man then sleeping in his bed.
The Birthmark is a short story involving a husband, and a wife named Aylmer and Georgiana. When reading this rather dark story the mind begins to question the ethics within the writing on who was a fault for the ultimate death of Georgiana, Aylmer or herself. I would argue that it was Aylmer who was the true monster within this story. Aylmer makes her shutter at her once charming mark and tells her she is imperfect. It is also Aylmer, who turns this into a crusade of his obsession over defying nature vs. the mark.
