I recognized you at once” which caused the Misfit to say, “Yes’m.

After the announcement of this serial killer, the grandmother looks out for herself by asking the Misfit, “You wouldn’t shoot a lady, would you” (Kelly 362)? This shows her carelessness about everybody except her well-being. As Bailey and his son goes in the woods with Hiram, the grandmother and the Misfit began talking about praying as two shots went off.
Roald Dahl, the author of this short story, wants the reader to realize how one-sided a relationship can be. While Mary was fully faithful and loving to Patrick; the feelings were not mutual. The feeling of betrayal she felt was beyond imaginable and she ended up going to violence for the answer. She was afraid, angry, shocked, sorrowful, and full of hatred. There may not have been an officially stated reason that she killed him, but in my mind I believe she killed him out of the act of fright and love.
The crack of the gun shook many souls who had read the book Of Mice And Men. In the book Of Mice And Men by John Steinbeck, George kills Lennie towards the end of the book and there are questions on whether it was wright or not for George to kill Lennie. George was right to kill Lennie because George would end it for him quickly, George would do it compassionately instead of Curley doing it in a bad way, and it would relieve Lennie of the pain and agony he has been through due to his illness. In almost every corner in the world, murder is illegal. However, in this particular situation, I believe that George 's decision to kill Lennie was acceptable due to the fact that it would have been easier for Lennie to die from George then having Curley

When the identity of the horseman was revealed, my first reaction was surprised because I realize that Druse kills his own father and I understood why every kinds of war are destructive for family relationships. I realize also the significance of the duty for a soldier because if Druse didn’t kill his father, he can be considered as a criminal. 9. What do you think the author’s messages are concerning “duty”, “family” and “war”? in this short story, the author would like to denounce firstly the war and the conditions of leaving that known soldiers.
For many people that think Titus Andronicus is all about violence, well it is mainly from the criticism from “The Pequod” it talks about violent act is style and context in which it is executed whether we respond to violence with shock, laughter or satisfaction like for example the death of Titus’s sons in battle and how he buried them. In Titus Andronicus, explains and tells the reader what Tamora’s sons Demetrius and Chiron did to Titus’s daughter Lavinia. Which revealed Titus’s son kills Tamora’s son, while Tamora tries to explain that it was Titus that killed Lavinia; but at the end of the the last act Titus kills his daughter so she probably wouldn’t have to go through that and he doesn’t have to live the fact that her daughter has been raped. The author shows that how this is a pattering, when Lavinia finally reveals and actually feels appropriate talking about what happened to her the play becomes not just violent but it becomes more violence and it goes downhill from their. From her rape it emphasis both natural and human systems.
The Oresteia is a political trilogy touching the topics of patriarchy and sexism. Even though, Agamemnon's death had happened years before, his essence is still evident in the hearts and minds of the people specially his children Orestes and Electra. His murder filled their minds even disregarding the fact that their father instigated the Trojan War and murdered their sister Iphigenia. Women in Ancient Greece were expected to be hung up on revenge and deception but to stay at home and take care of the family household. Ladies didn’t have any rights or power—even eating and sleeping in the same room was deemed unacceptable.
At this moment the reader is unaware of why but later discovers the social prejudices that plague the ranch. The fact that “she’s got the eye” not only dehumanises her but labels her as unfaithful and evidently untrustworthy in the eyes of the ranch hands. The use of this very short and direct sentence causes many to develop negative connotations of her as this is Candy’s opinion stated as a fact, misleading the reader into prejudging her as a predator rather than prey. Immediately, the reader is bombarded with bad impressions of Curley’s wicked and despised wife even though no one truly knows her. This is evident in the fact Curley “got married a couple of weeks ago.” The fact Curley’s wife has been introduced by Candy, immediately and subtly introduces Steinbeck’s intentions for this novel: exposing the social intolerance of humans.
It was about the Kitty Genovese case when she was attacked outside of her apartment and her neighbors heard her and didn’t do anything; they ignored her cries. Our short story unit was about conflict, characterization and plot elements including the theme. Empathy can create a stronger and more just society because people would understand the things that people are going through or gone through. The Nazis didn't have any empathy for the people that they killed and how they destroyed their families. The first assignment
Atticus and Mr. Tate knew that Boo would be killed if the town found out that he had killed Bob Ewell, and so they agreed that Mr. Ewell fell on his knife. When Atticus asked Scout if she understood the situation, she said “...Mr. Tate was right... it’d be sort of like shootin’ a mockingbird, wouldn’t it?” (Lee, p. 276). Scout plainly said that Boo Radley is a mockingbird and the events in the story prove it to be true. To kill a mockingbird is to kill one’s innocence and although there were other “mockingbirds” in the book, Jem Finch and Boo Radley were definitely important ones. Their innocence was killed by the evil in the world around them and that’s what makes them mockingbirds.
They had persuaded the jury to believe that George Zimmerman had killed Trayvon believing he was a danger to himself or others. 19 year-old Rachel Jeantel was the last person to speak to Trayvon. They believed that the witness was “Ghetto Trash.” The prosecution did not get the jury to believe that the case was a murder. George Zimmerman was not guilty and created many angry protesters. He won by the sole witness of the case.
As I have stated already, the main reasons were that they [Klu-Klux-Klan] were killing and brutally murdering black politicians, or even, any random citizen who was either for the “Reconstruction” . The other reason I stated was that they brought to many problems to themselves, that the “Northern Neglect” did not feel like they should be responsible for that. Tens of thousands people who live here all blame the ‘Northern Neglect” for this cause that was once beautiful. If only they would hear my argument on why I believe in what we did to them was very horrible,we were killers. They are just holding a deaf ear, but we can come to conclusion that it was our fault for this act that was once supposed to be a way to make America a land of opportunities, but instead turned it to a land of
At the scene of Romeo and Juliet’s death, Friar Lawrence confesses, “I am the greatest, able to do the least, yet most suspected, as the time and place doth make against me, of this direful murder. And here I stand, both to impeach and purge myself condemned and myself excused” (5.3.32-36). He explains that because he was there at the time of Romeo and Juliet’s death, he is suspected to have killed them. He should have been able to stop Juliet because he was there. Instead he chose to abandon the couple.
Seen throughout the book, Of Mice and Men, the character development of the main character, Lennie, was changing to a more violent and uncontrollable human, and foreshadowed his death. Since Lennie killed Curley’s wife he was a fugitive, and anyone who killed him is just. In the novel of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck, the character George is justified in killing Lennie because of his actions caused by his disabilities allowing for a better life. George’s decision on killing Lennie was the right one. Lennie had no judgment on whether or not something was legal because of his mental illness.
