The Host offers the Pardoner to tell his story, because, before him, the Physician told a sad tale. He wanted to primarily lighten the mood. The story begins with three men drinking at a tavern. They find out it was a friend who was killed by someone called Death. So, the three friends set out to find this man named “Death” and kill him.
The old man is confronted by the three rioters and he tells them where he last saw Death. The three rioters die at the tree later, which could mean the old man knew they would be consumed by greed and die up there, hinting at the old man being Death. “Thus these two murderers received their due, so did the treacherous young poisoner too.”
He spoke to a ghost, and this ghost stated that his father 's death was a murder, by the hand of his uncle, Claudius. "The serpent that did sting thy father 's life now wears his crown." Hamlet was astonished, and then swore vengeance for his father 's death. He then proceeded to try and prove his uncle 's guilt, and then finally kills him while he himself is dying of poisoned wounds inflicted by Laertes during their duel. This left the King dead, and his father 's
As this plays out, Blacksad manages to shoot the ‘rat’ and the ‘goanna’, questioning the slowly dying ‘goanna’, until he eventually uncovers the name of the culprit. Ivo Statoc is the most powerful and richest businessman in the city. Natalia was shot by Statoc in cold blood (as she was not a one man kind of woman) and then Statoc went to torture Leon and then killed him in the same cold blood. This ends with a confrontation between Statoc and Blacksad. Statoc offers Blacksad a job and then money as a form of justice, of which Blacksad rejects both and shoots Statoc.
“He saw that he was stone dead. His eye would be trouble no more.” (page 385, Poe) In the horror story “A Tell-Tale Heart,” by Edgar Allan Poe, it revolves around a first-person view of an unnamed narrator. He elaborates on killing an old man for the reason of him having an “eye of a vulture.” After 8 long nights of waiting and planning, the narrator forcefully kills the old man. Additionally, he disassembles the body, hiding each part under the floorboards, thus having the narrator refers to himself as “mad.” The main character should be put into a psychiatric institute and be watched under great surveillance based on the crimes he’s committed and due to his condition. To begin with, the narrator had a very unreasonable motive for killing the old man, in this way he is accredited as a madman.
I think that because, at the end he got his revenge and killed him, it might’ve took a long time to do it and it did cost people’s lives, but he got his revenge. In document F it says, “For God only can take vengeance of the sole,” In document e, it says, that Claudius, started praying because he knew that hamlet knows about his murder. At the end of his prayer he says, “My words fly up, my thoughts remain below: Words without thoughts never to heaven go.” In document A, it says that the killing of Claudius is justified because, Claudius lied about killing the old king, Claudius also stole his brother’s wife, life, and his crown. The ghost of the king said, “The serpent that did sting thy father’s life Now wears his crown.” To hamlets face. I believe that hamlets actions were not justified but one is, because revenge isn’t a good thing, but Claudius is not just a murderer he is a stealer too.
He fell flat on the floor and the shot’s sound rang in The Misfit’s ears. “It’s no real pleasure in life,” The Misfit thought to himself as he shot back at the policemen, who shot at the three criminals inside the diner after seeing they had killed the boy. Bobby Lee died first, shot in the head. The Misfit could see that one of his gunshots pierced a policeman 's uniform and another hit the head of another one. “It’s no real pleasure in life,” he thought to himself as he saw Hiram dead beside him.
The reader knows that the narrator is planning to kill the man very soon, while the man has no clue that he is about to be killed, and he is just sleeping. “To think that there I was, opening the door, little by little, and he not even to dream of my secret deeds or thoughts.” The readers know that the narrator is stalking the old man, while the old man is just sleeping. Suspense is created since the reader does not know what the old man will do, whether he will be killed, or whether he will notice the
While he is haunted by guilt, Macbeth has to secure his throne by murdering Banquo and Fleance. At the end of the feast which was set up for assassinating Banquo and his son, Macbeth is again terrified by the news that Fleance has fled and Banquo’s ghost will dried blood over his body. He said to the ghost: “Thou canst not say I did it. Never shake/ Thy gory locks at me.” (3.4.51-52) These reactions all showed his ambivalence and the hatred to
Guilt and fear consume Macbeth after the first murderer informs him that Banquo has been killed but his son Fleance escaped the murderous grasp. At the banquet, Macbeth sees the ghost of Banquo, which drives Macbeth towards insanity. To the ghost Macbeth exclaims, “Prithee, see there! Behold! Look!
One by one, the Misfit orders his henchmen to take a member of the family into the woods and kill them in cold blood. However, the reader is confounded when the Misfit reveals that he was falsely imprisoned for his father’s death. O’Connor states: “The Misfit sneered slightly. ‘Nobody had nothing I wanted’ he said…’It was the head doctor at the penitentiary said what I had done was kill my daddy but I know that for a lie. My daddy died.. of the epidemic flu and I never had a thing to do with it.’”(pg 148).
