As Victors dads “only son”, it seems to be his duty to be, and must always satisfy him. Also the fact that Victors father “took a Bible” to a father and son trip shows that there is no fun or affection between them. It could be why Victor holds on to the Bible later in the poem. Linking to this, “Blessed are the pure in heart” is ironic as purity and a virtuous childhood/life has led to a murderous
Anne Boleyn was the second wife of King Henry VIII, and had probably the most influence on Britain as a whole of all Henry VIII 's wives. Historians such as Lacey Baldwin Smith, a senior Lecturer of 16th Century British History at Princeton University recognise Anne 's role in the reformation in Britain and acknowledge that Henry VIII 's love of Anne was the reason for him applying to the Pope to have his previous marriage to Catherine annulled.1 Having been rejected Henry VIII decided to break away from the Catholic Church from which Britain became largely Protestant. Anne Boleyn is recognised as having been a very complex figure but it is over her death that is cause for debate. Many historians such as Retha M. Warnicke, a Professor of History
She was so crazy about John that she accused Elizabeth Proctor of witch craft. John’s life at home was cold, his wife had figured out about the affair.

Certain crimes such as: Adultery, Murder and Theft, during the Puritan era were always diagnosed as inhumane and ruined a person's reputation, despite any attempt of redemption. Proctor’s crime of adultery is a key element in the starting of the salem witch trials and the devastating end. Proctors situation alternates throughout the novel consistently by other villagers and even Proctor himself.

His words and about amusements and life delectations, that Dorian dives into sensual pleasures, debauchery, and crimes. Kohl argues that “Dorian’s fatal error is to take Lord Henry’s theories as practical guides for life” (156). In “wild desire to know everything about life” (Wilde 44) Dorian destroys destinies of people, corrupting them with his thirst of pleasures. Friendship with him is pernicious for people around: Alan Campbell commits a suicide; Adrian Singleton conducts a pathetic life of the addict, having slid on the bottom; the reputation of the cousin of Lord Henry, Lady Gwendolyn is forever discredited—even her children are not allowed to live with her in one house. Liebmann emphasizes that among the major characters only the Mephistophelean Henry survives, and all others—Sybil, Basil, James Vane, Sir Henry Ashton, Lord Kent’s son and aforementioned characters are the victims of Dorian’s influence (451-452).
