Also, some people attract death. Throughout Poe’s life, he could not get away from death. Another example is in Annabel Lee when it is stated “…killing my Annabel Lee.” This is significant because all of the people the Poe cared about died. The last example is in The Black Cat. In this story, it states “She fell dead upon the spot…”.
The same girl he did work for every day started a trial against him saying he raped her. Her claim should have been disproven in many ways, there was enough evidence to contradict it but the jury is so racist they look right past it. Tom was found guilty and sent to Enfield Prison Farm waiting for an appeal even though he shouldn’t have been there in the first place. Finally, as Tom was in that prison he got sick and tired of waiting for an appeal so he made a run for it, and was shot 17 times to be stopped. This ends up killing him and once the news makes it to the town it just rolls off their shoulders.

Just my [her] breath, carrying my [her] words out, might poison
In the story, we see how selfish the grandmother was when dealing with the “Misfit” as he began to murder her family we saw her beg for her life and not anyone else’s in her family. The only character in “A Good Man is Hard to Find,” that is selfless is the mother who is barely acknowledged. However, the one thing that she did do was when confronted with the idea of her joining her family dead she simply said yes while the grandmother kept on pleading and eventually stated, “Why you’re one of my babies. You’re one of my own children” (O’Connor 1153) which got her murdered seconds later. This shows that by being selfish it allows you to not care about your family and friends which is also exemplified in “A Rose for Emily.” In Faulkner’s
Faulkner’s story demonstrates totally different plot: there is an own main character, her mental disorder and its consequences for the society. In the case of Emily Grierson the problem appeared to be in the inherited disorder, as “people in our town, remembering how old lady Wyatt, her great-aunt, had gone completely crazy at last” (Faulkner 4); and the citizens’ attitude. Miss Emily felt a pressure from people because of own origins and behavior; and these conditions finally made her to kill Homer Barron, an only potential opportunity for marriage after her father’s death. After the crime Miss Emily was not able to get rid of the body and continued to live with it until her own death. It looked like Baron became the only victim of the character’s madness here.

In Robert Browning’s works, Porphyria’s Lover, and My Last Duchess, the speakers can be both compared and contrasted. Initially, both speakers in the literary texts are similar because they killed their lovers. In Duchess, the duke that is the speaker says bluntly that he killed his last wife. As the speaker says, “I gave commands; then the smiling stopped altogether” (Lines 45-46). These lines mean that he told her to stop smiling, but she didn’t listen to him, so therefore he killed her, thus the smiles stopped forever.
After many years of alienating Sethe’s family the community was informed of the reasoning behind Sethe’s action. They then understood why Sethe had killed her daughter. When news of Beloved’s return had spread, it was theorized that Sethe’s crime had comeback for her, the town women banned together to help save Sethe. Morrison involves the women of the community in the ridding of Beloved because they too have had to commit horrendous acts in their times as slaves. Mahboobeh Khaleghi explained that by the community banning together and “exorcising Beloved, the community exorcises the past” (Khaleghi 479).
“Give me the daggers. The sleeping and the dead Are but as pictures; ‘tis the eye of childhood That fears a painted devil.” Lady Macbeth takes the daggers from Macbeth and smears the blood herself on the guards that she herself killed earlier.

He is said to have boasted to a person in jail saying that he hurt Sam Sheppard during the fight (www.murderpedia.org). Also, he revealed to Kathy Wagner Dyala former nurse’s aid to Ethel Durkin, who was assassinated by Eberling, that he killed Marilyn. Specifically the nurse reported, “He (Eberling) told me that he had killed her and that he hit her husband on the head with a pail and that the b**** hit the hell out of me.” Why would Eberling confess to two people (www.law2.umkc)? On Sam’s side, he had no clear motive to kill his wife. Most husbands who kill their wives had abused their wife earlier in their relationship.
