As a result it must be made clearly known to Montresor that it is him who is all responsible for Fortunatos destiny. If he get a punishment for his actions, or fail to bring to the attention this responsibility to the victim, he will consider this form of a revenge null in his view. This is a revenge of pride to Montreseor. It is therefore this pride and the personal familial that is wounded as a result. He therefore feels that he must avenge the wounds in order to gain his higher honor and
Yet there was still hope that Macbeth would learn to turn back from these ways, as he had still felt guilt after Banquo’s murder, but he did not. He had only become worse as he became entirely corrupt. Spilling blood, and turning against those who had once praised him. It had gone to the point where his own army only followed him as it was their duty and not because they truly respected and honored
The narrator didn’t really love Doodle, was cruel to him, and thought him how to stuff out of his own selfishness, so thank to the gift of pride, the narrator is guilty for the murder of his brother Doodle. The narrator despised Doodle. When Doodle was born and alive- against what the doctor said- the narrator says, "I began to make plans to kill him by smothering him with a pillow" (Hurst 345). The narrator wants to kill his brother because he realized he would not die and because of that, won't be able to do anything physically like brothers do together.
I don’t think it’s right to euthanize people with mental disabilities because they’re still people and they still have hope for a better future and their life is still important even if it doesn’t seem like it. I do agree with George killing Lennie because Lennie would die a really harsh, painful, and slow death by the other men that were trying to find him if George didn’t calm him down and shoot him. Of course, it was the biggest plot twist in the whole book and it broke our hearts, but George did if for the best. In conclusion, George did the right thing and actually helped Lennie instead of harming him and others around
But every action has a cause and effect. Poe focuses mainly on the concept of, is it worth taking revenge for, how far you are willing to go for it, and will you end up regretting your choice. In Montresor’s case, he might’ve ended up with regret in either scenario of him taking or not taking revenge on Fortunato. Either way, I believe Poe’s theme of revenge relates to a much bigger theme in life, choice. The ability to choose is everything we do, decide, and without it, we wouldn’t be anything.
Hamlet's overthinking and inaction led to several unnecessary murders. Hamlet knew that Claudius is guilty, yet he still wants to make sure, therefore Hamlet made a play that played out the exact way that Claudius had killed King Hamlet. Hamlet had done this in order to watch how Claudius reacts to make sure that Claudius is the one who murdered his father, “I’ll observe his looks, if he do blench, I know my course” (Ham.2.2.583-585) “Now might I do it pat, now’a is a-praying. And now I’ll do’t” ( Ham.
Showing the other person that their negative actions did not phase you will infuriate them enough. Also sometimes it makes the person question themselves and think that maybe what they did was really wrong (guilt). Guilt is one of the many outcomes that people suffer from trying to seek revenge, revenge is just not worth it ! “ The
Is Scapegoating The Solution? “A society that is under stress will always scapegoat a group of people or one person.” (Moyer, Bill. “Interview with Margaret Atwood”) . People seem to assume when something is going wrong or is about to go wrong they can just cover it up by blaming someone else for the problem.
Foreshadowing death is very common in Shakespeare plays, especially in Hamlet. It’s used to show not only how one feels toward a death but a deeper meaning when it does to a person's mental being, often how death affects their emotions and everyday actions. Hamlet’s emotions are scattered when he discovers his father’s ghost haunts him. The Ghost wants Hamlet to kill Claudius, Hamlet’s uncle who murdered his brother for the throne, this mission put Hamlet in a predicament because he did not know how he over all felt toward Claudius. The smallest character may seem of little importance but the Ghost forms the whole story by the use of Hamlet’s emotions such as fear,revenge, and
The society in this book seemed to be the type that followed the rules or if you didn’t the worst things were going to happen to you. Everybody makes mistake and they try to learn and move on from them but killing someone intentionally would stick with that person forever and they would never be the same. Therefore, some people debate on whether he was completely out of place for killing Beatty or did the best thing for society. Although Montag killed Beatty, many people debate over whether it was the right thing to do or not.
Revenge. I, like most people, would want revenge on that awful human being. It’s human nature wanting to get even, but is continuing the trail of dead bodies really revenge? Put yourself in the position of the murder and compare these two scenarios for a second. Rot in prison for 40 years or have one second of being lethally injected.
Dubus has the reader questioning if inflicting revenge on Richard is ethical thing to do since the legal system failed in serving the appropriate punishment. In the story, Matt is thinking about taking Richard 's life because he killed his son and Dubus has the reader on his side. Releasing Richard on bail is an unjust decision made by the legal system because the crime does not match the punishment. Nobel peace prize winner Martin Luther King Jr says “ How can you advocate breaking some laws and obeying others? The answer lies in the fact that there are two types of laws: just and unjust.
In life, mostly everyone will want revenge on someone they know that did wrong to them. When Montressor wanted revenge, he went insane and planned to kill the person who did him wrong. In the real world, most people do not try to kill someone if they did them wrong. Montressor is insane because of the way he got revenge on Fortunato. Poe proves in this story that some people use different, harsher ways to get revenge on
Revenge, the common instinctual sense of self-justice exists in us all. Its manifestations may be observed through primitive, physical violence, skulking, character-assassination, or perhaps by simply taking it to authorities for them to dish out cold justice. Our need for vengeance unites us, while our actions with it divide us. The unknown author of Beowulf, however, was able to add another use to revenge. The author drove the plot through cause and effect, showed how alike characters are through their actions, yet distant through their motivations.
The absence of thought utilized as a part of demanding the vengeance prompted the passings of both Laertes and Hamlet. Laertes arranged with Claudius to slaughter Hamlet with the harmed tipped sword, yet they had not imagined that the sword may be utilized against them. With Laertes trusting the King 's allegations that Hamlet had killed his dad, he battles Hamlet and wounds him once with the harmed tipped sword. Village continues to twisted Laertes with the same sword, demanding his demise. Villa had numerous opportunities to slaughter his uncle, however his fury exceeded his better judgment; and he held up until the ruler could see no great in Claudius, and afterward strike him down into a universe of unceasing punishment.
