This relationship had gone too far to this point because it was very wicked, violent, and ultimately sad. The cat has caused him to do dreadful things to the people around him especially murdering his wife. Furthermore, the alcohol has made everything worse since he became much more aggressive than what he is now. Towards the end of this dreadful story the character was being investigated for the murder of his own wife. It seems that he almost got away with it, but the black cat appeared with what seemed as a corpse of his dead wife.

The excerpt begins by dehumanizing the English people and their leader by calling them vultures, barbarians, and wild beasts. The speaker goes on to call the English greedy and demons of the night. The speaker goes on to say that the English have “poisoned our people with opium” and that they “murder all of us that they can”. The speaker then calls them dogs, says that they can never be satisfied and that they (China) do not need to inquire peace.

Ralph, alone and afraid. Is a victim of Mob mentality. The other boys, in fear of the beast, have all sided with Jack, ganging up against Ralph to kill him.

Mob mentality is portrayed many time throughout Lord of the Flies, for example, when Ralph is hunted, Simon is killed, or the choir follows Jack when he leaves the group.
Trujillo gets worried when he learns about the 14th of June Movement because he knows that the goal of the movement is to overthrow or kill him. One by one, he starts jailing members of the movement, as well as ransacking or destroying their homes. At Patria’s house, Trujillo has the SIM tear “...the house apart, hauling away the doors, windows, the priceless mahogany beams of Pedrito’s old family rancho” (Alvarez 192). The way that he messes with those involved in the movement is cruel. After having their homes ransacked, Trujillo jails only the Mirabal husbands, which makes the sisters think they are safe.
Give me the daggers. The sleeping and the dead/Are but as pictures. 'Tis the eye of childhood/that fears a painted devil. If he do bleed, I’ll gild the faces of the grooms withal, For it must seem their guilt.” (2.2.52-57). As a result of unrestrained ambition Lady Macbeth has gone senseless, she is blaming the murder of King Duncan on the innocent servants.

The crack along the side of the house not only reinforces the theme of the destruction of man. The crack also helps to show the function of setting; background for action by how the family is breaking apart because of tensions between them and Roderick’s desire for the Usher name to end. The cracking of the house could also be foreshadowing of the corruption of Roderick when he buried Madeline alive to end the Usher family name.

She became psychotic and attacked Philip then killed Roderick as the house was engulfed by flames.
“I first saw kittens drown, Dan Taggart pitched them and drowned them, 'The scraggy wee shits '. The efficient and ruthlessness way of killing animals show the ruthlessness of the farmers“ (lines 2-3). Later on after he kills the cats he states that 'Sure, isn 't it better for them now? (line 7), this shows us that even though he violently killed the kittens it shows that he has reasoning behind the purges, which is to not let them suffer. Moreover Heaney states that he also went on to kill and snap the back of old hens and vermin’s, which go on to show that these are his chores, and were he not to “purge”, or cull these pests on the farm, they would be infested and diseased and would disable it from running at full levels of efficiency.
There, they were brutally treated and one was reported to be killed as they were sent to unsanitary, frigid, rat-infested cells regardless of age. Due to this inhumane manner in which they were treated, Paul started to rebel with the hunger strike method. This is said to be an Irish method where the protester was to starve themself for a cause on the doorstep of the offender. The reason being, if someone else were to see a dead body on the doorstep of anyone’s house, they would automatically assume the owner of the doorstep caused the death, bringing a bad reputation to themself. Eventually, the movement caused the workhouse to force feed the suffragists with a wide tube that gave some occupants Pleurisy-a severe lung inflammation.
In The Tell Tale Heart, the character buries another person under his floorboards because he didn 't’ like the ways his eye looked, which makes us pretty sure he had some type of mental illness and was mad like Poe at the end of his life. For example, in The Tell Tale Heart, it says, “Now this is the point you fancy me mad. Madmen know nothing. [...] You should have seen how wisely I proceeded with what caution with what foresight with what dissimulation I went to work.” (Poe) This quote shows that the character didn’t know if he was mad or not. Also in The Tell Tale Heart it says, “I heard all the things in heaven and in the earth.
