In “Tell-Tale Heart” and “The Cask of Amontillado” by Edgar Allan Poe, both narrators commit murder with different strategies. Though both narrators successfully committed murder, only one of the narrators got caught. The narrator in “Tell-Tale Heart” fails to be an effective murderer; while the narrator in “The Cask of Amontillado” displays that he is a good murderer. The narrator, Montresor, shows an excellent job on how to be a good murderer.
Introduction Robert H. Lustig’s article “The toxic truth about sugar” centers around the author attempting to prove the truth in the title. The negative health effects of today’s sugar consumption can no longer be ignored he argues. It's time to act against sugar like we've acted against tobacco and alcohol. From the article the problem with sugar isn’t just weight gain. Authorities consider sugar as 'empty calories' — but there is nothing empty about these calories.
Each character in the story made a choice that affected the other in some way, which culminated in the outcome of the story. The path that lead to the Swede’s death began the moment he set foot in Fort Romper and chose to accompany Mr. Scullie to the hotel. The rest of the story was a series of actions and reactions, inevitably pulling the Swede towards his ultimate fate and the gambler’s arrest. In the words of the Easterner, the “fool of an unfortunate gambler came merely as a culmination, the apex of a human movement”(Roberts
Throughout the story, three major details of the narrator’s psyche are confirmed. First, we learned of the narrator’s deceitfulness. Every morning he lies to the old man with the least bit of guilt. The next continues to prove the madness as the narrator feels utter joy from the terror of another. Lastly, the narrator fabricates that the old man is simply not home to assure the officers.
Mr.Fowler went out and ended up murdering the man who murdered his son. While reading the story the audience dominantly takes Frank 's father 's side on the situation rather than feeling the same way about the two murders. People seem to sway towards Mr.Fowlers side of the story because they say it was out of love, Richard Strout deserved it, and Frank was innocent unlike Mr. Strout. Love is the key to all relationships throughout the world. Love is what carries and drives people everyday to keep going.
Individuals can make their own interpretation of the themes of the short story, but without the grotesque violence and psychopathic nature of the characters, a theme would never surface. The purpose of the violent scenes and nature of the story is to provide a theme for the audience that a good man is not just hard to find but impossible to find because everyone is an imperfect human by human
Perry’s disturbing past urges both the reader and the townspeople to view the culprit’s entire story from a moral standpoint. Thus, this causes them to empathize with him and question whether such a brutal punishment should be inflicted upon a man who may potentially have mental issues. The uncertainty that arises in the minds of the townspeople is portrayed in the prosecutor’s conversation with the newsman after Perry is hanged.
After the murder took place, anyone who knew the Clutter family was in shock because they could not understand why anyone would murder this particular family. After discovering that the murder was committed by strangers who seemed to have no motive, the townsfolk became very suspicious of everyone. As paranoia began to rise, evidence is found at the scene of the crime that ties two men, Dick Hickock and Perry Smith, to the murder. These men are arrested, and they are forced to confess to the crime, leading them to reveal their motive. Perry’s motive is much clearer than Dick’s, and is actually rather unclear what Dick’s role in the murder would have been.
What drove these men to kill this family? What did the Clutter family do to deserve such a thing as murder? These men don’t know the answer to that, they could think for hours upon hours and they would never know why they killed the Clutters. Maybe it was just in the moment, maybe it was a spurt of rage, or maybe
The next day Mr. Dimmesdale was assassinated and the culprit was yet to be discovered. The townspeople assumed that it was Hester due to the circle around the A in the word Catholic. The townspeople felt that it was a hate crime and felt that Hester was becoming rebellious against their religious beliefs. Hester then was sentenced to prison without any actual evidence besides the Bible. Hester looked around the courtroom and felt a chill go down her spinal cord.
The detail increases the sinister sense when the narrator describes Mr. Clutter’s murder. The deaths of the Clutter Family seemed like a terrible case, since “a total of eighteen men” had to be assigned to take care of this “case full time”. This crime was very serious because too many people were assigned to be responsible of the case. Since the homicides committed were unscrupulous, extreme vigilance was required.
The demonstration of the narrator's imagination unconsciously leads his own thoughts to grow into a chaotic mess that ultimately ends in a death. By murdering, it’s his own way of finding peace. He is portrayed as being a sadist, sick man with an unnatural obsession for
The basic motivation to investigate the murder is the curiosity over the town’s awareness of the approaching murder, he also suggests that he finds in the incident that happened a reflection of his own experience: “I returned to this forgotten village, trying to put the broken
