First, The narrator in “The Tell Tale Heart” killed the old man for very few reasons and obligations. This is a very negative way of handling a conflict. This action is negative because the old man did nothing to him, it even says in the story that the old man didn’t harm or do anything to the narrator. The narrator just said that it was because he had a vulture eye that he couldn’t stand to look at. The narrator killed the old man and by his actions readers can see that he is a very evil person.
I saw this in the story because the outside of the old man was not how the narrator wanted him to look. Since the old mans eye bothered him so much he decided to kill him but he never thought about the generosity the old man gave him. The old man never made fun of the narrator, as said in the story the old man never insulted the narrator either, but in return the narrator decided to kill him because of how he looked on the outside. And because of the old mans eyeball the narrator killed him and ended up going to jail. This crime ended up leading to the last theme, which is the feeling of
It could be said that his decadence changes his portrait without changing him. Nevertheless, this is not true because the plot of the book can led the reader to understand that living as a sinner ends up killing the soul of the sinner, and of the people around him.

Basil is killed by Dorian.

Then later on he follows a ghost of his father and the father tells him of who kills him.
Death of a Dreamer Who can really be to blame for ones death? Many may contribute to a death but will disclaim any accusation placed upon them. In The Great Gatsby by F.

Titus, in this scene, has started to lose his civility when he stabbed his own flesh and blood. Titus’ civility is diminishing because he showed no reason or thought into his careless action of killing his son, it was a senseless act. This act of murder was not civil because he murdered his own kin which is also seen as a barbaric act because barbarism is killing with no reasoning. Titus explicitly defines barbarism by not assessing the matter before stabbing his son for no other reason than for being in his way. Titus’ slow crawl into the realm of barbarism is shown in this scene as he is showing no logic in his actions and no forgiveness to his sons for betraying Rome.
Citation: “Oedipus: If I had eyes, I do not know how I could bear the sight of my father, when I came to the house of Death, or my mother: for I have sinned against them both.” Explanation: Oedipus, himself, feels he is guilty of the crimes as he has called them sins, and, at this point in the story, the plague is lifted from the city as Oedipus stabs out his eyes.

Citation: “"Oedipus: Apollo. Apollo. Dear Children, the god was Apollo.
The creature decides that Justine Moritz will suffer for the murder that he committed, thus an innocent soul was tormented and executed for a murder she did not commit (Shelley 127).

However, when his own monster kills his beloved friend, he no longer has the ability to confide his feelings to someone.
