In the short story “The Cask of Amontillado” Montresor states, “I must not only punish but punish with impunity. A wrong is unredressed when retribution overtakes its redresser. It is equally unredressed when the avenger fails to make himself felt as such to him who has done the wrong” (Poe). In today's language, Montresor is saying that he wants to punish Fortunato without being caught, but he does want Fortunato to know that he was going to die by the hand of Montresor so he could have closure in the subject. In the online article “Edgar Allan Poe's "The Cask of Amontillado" the author states, “Montresor, who is the narrator of this disturbing short story, vows to get revenge on Fortunato for insulting him, and Montresor plans to seek retribution upon Fortunato to support his family motto "Nemo me impune lacessit" which means “No one assails me with impunity" in English” (Womack).
And all because you are too scared to call it a Genocide because repercussions could develop. But you the United Nation have the power to change what happens. The Hutus are only killing because no one has a reason to stop them. They are killing neighbors, work partners, even family members are being killed. But why?
He seems to have his mind made up and determined to kill her, however, he still cannot say out loud. “It is the cause, it is the cause, my soul,-- / let me not name it to you, you chaste stars!-- / it is the cause” (5, 2, 1-3). By repeating the words “it is the cause” Othello seems to be convincing himself that killing Desdemona is the right thing to do, he is unable to say that he is going to kill her out loud because he still really cares about her and loves her, however, he feels the need to kill her because his jealousy for her fake affair has overpowered those feelings. As he approaches his wife, he puts out the candle he is holding and gets ready to kill her. “Put out the light, and then put out the light” (5, 2, 7).
To begin, George knew that if Curley or any of the other ranchers got to Lennie first, they would have killed him in a way to make him suffer. Lennie’s last moments would be of pain, confusion, and fear. As it states in the text, “ I’ll kill the big son-of-a-bitch myself. I’ll shoot ‘im in the guts.” (Steinbeck, 96). George knew they were either going to kill him or keep him locked up in a cage until he dies.
Now what Tybalt is telling us is that Romeo has killed before but has only been sentenced to be a villain and not to death. So not only has he killed before he has bribed the judge of his real sentence. From the scenes, we don't see he would probably be off upping his kills per day always getting away with it. This is why I believe that Romeo and Juliet is not in fact a love story at all. Shown from the math above and the proof it is fair to say that Romeo is a serial killer.
I myself find that the facts supporting to abolish the death penalty outweigh any reason to continue to uphold it. With a broken judicial system leading to death row. It is littered with racial and economic hardships inadequacies and flaws innocent people are being sentenced to death court systems bottlenecked with motions and procedures that only prolong the impending doom. Many People argue that the worst of the worst of the worst should be put to death and that there is no reason to hold out with hopes that they will change. Other argue that the we must keep the death penalty for a deterrent.
¨We reserve the death penalty in the United States for the most heinous murders and the most brutal and conscienceless murderers.” I can see why the Supreme Court doesn 't want these people in prison, because they might kill somebody in prison, or if they get bailed out they wouldn 't learn their lesson and do what they were doing AGAIN. ¨We have the responsibility to punish those who deserve it, but only to the degree they deserve it.¨ I can also see why they think people deserve it for their horrible actions, they believe that since they did some outrageous murder, or a really bad crime they deserve to die. ¨"Whatever your feelings are toward the death penalty, one thing most people will never know is the pain experienced when a family member, or in my case, family members are brutally tortured and murdered.¨ This is saying that families go through a lot when a murderer kills one of their loved ones, and the family wants that person executed. Personally, the death penalty in my eyes can help families feel like they 've got justice, and make them feel like they did something for the loved one that was
Macbeth believes Banquo is a threat to his throne. Macbeth’s paranoia causes him to hire Murderers to kill Banquo. Before Banquo dies he cries out one last statement to his son Fleance. He shouts, “Thou may’st revenge -O slave!” (III.iii.18). The idea of revenge on Macbeth is first begins here and is a subject of the play till the end.
The narrator states that, “I made up my mind to take the life of the old man and thus rid myself of the eye forever”(Poe 2). In this sentence the reader begins to understand that the narrator wants to kill the old man over the small feature of his eye. The old man 's vulture eye is the only thing bothering him, and is the only reason he decided to kill him. If the narrator had been insane he would not have taken careful thought to kill the old man. If a person is insane it is a flash decision where they do not have control over their actions and are unaware of what they are doing.
Macbeth was contemplating the consequences of murdering Duncan and foresees his future of being overthrown by righteousness. He is worried that “This even-handed justice/ Commends th’ ingredience if our poisoned chalice/ To our own lips.” (1.7.10-12). Macbeth, at this point, have not been obsessed with lust for power. He raised self-awareness that the violence he used to wrongly proclaim himself king will be used to take vengeance against him. Such violence made him a “tyrant” and eventually killed by Macduff in anger of Macbeth’s crimes.
