But he feared as a Reverend the he was not setting a proper example, with Abigail his niece and his daughter dancing in the woods. He feared if the truth got out that he would lose his status, his power, his strength. To escape this feeling, rather than face the truth, he lied and went along with the story that the girls were “possessed”. Now Reverend Parris feared embarrassment, awkward of ashamed feeling. But is does not compare to the fear of your life.
After eating so much, the boys decide to have a “dance”, in which they find a creature crawling out of the forest, which happens to be Simon trying to tell them about the beast, and kill him out of pure savagery which has blinded them. “‘Kill the beast! Cut his throat! Spill his blood’” (Golding, 152) The boys, kill a friend they know and chant as though Simon was the beast, which they want to kill, but really the beast is the savagery inside of them. To regress into brutish beasts enough to kill one’s own friend is pure savagery.
The the final line was crossed when Jack ordered his tribe to steal Piggy’s glasses, to start fires. Ralph and Piggy walked to Jack’s Camp and demanded the return of Piggy’s glasses. Without hesitation without pause, Roger unleashes the trap on them. The trap was a boulder when pushed would fall, Piggy who was blind and confused was struck and murdered. “Ralph wept for the end of innocence, darkness of man’s heart, and the pull through the air of truly a wise friend called Piggy” (Golding 184).
Even Ralph is apart of this group, his want to be apart of the safety in the group overpowers his moral duties as a human. The final example of Ralph doing inhuman things because of fear is the scene where Jack and his followers steal Piggy’s glasses. Jack and his tribe need fire in order to cook the meat from the pigs, but the only mean of fire is the glasses. Jack and two others decide to go out and steal the glasses from Ralph’s tribe. While the heist is taking place, Ralph and his followers think it is the beast that is attacking them.
The pig hunting foreshadows the link between the pig symbol and the extermination of those considered alien or outsiders. ““You’re always scared. Yah-Fatty!” “I got the conch,” said Piggy bleakly. He turned to Ralph. “I got the conch, ain’t I Ralph?” Unwillingly Ralph turned away from the splendid, awful sight.” (Golding, p.36) The group of boys were looking at Piggy as if he is the worm.
Willy says [nothing her mending] “what 's that?” Linda says “just mending my stockings. They’re so expensive” Willy says [angrily, taking them from her] “I won’t have you mending stockings in this house! Now throw them out”(Miller 26)! Willy got mad very quickly because he knew that he cheated on his wife; Willy had bought the woman some stockings, so when Linda said something about stockings, he went into a panic so he started yelling at her. In the play, it shows Willy is soft and insecure not just a crazy man.
In fact, after Kent tried to calm him down and have him reflect on what he was doing, Lear got angry and banished Kent as well, who was his right hand man. As the play progresses, Lear’s madness is exposed again and again. One spot in particular that really demonstrated his loosening grip on reality was in scene four of act three when after talking to Poor Tom, he ripped off his clothes (3.4.107-108). He had been talking to Poor Tom after leaving his horrible daughters at Goneril’s home, venturing into a nasty storm, and was completely unphased by the crazy things that he is telling him. This part of the play was a big moment because it captured one of the key moments in Lear’s downward spiral into insanity.
The cruel, bizarre, and unethical behaviors exhibited by Hamlet and his family stem from the severe depravity of mind from which they all suffer. Hamlet’s lack of moral character is illustrated in many different cases. For example, when Hamlet was writing in his journal after he is visited by the Ghost of his father, he wrote, “So Uncle, there you are. Now it is time to deal with the vow I made me to my father” (Act I Scene 3, 110). Hamlet, driven mad by grief, vowed to the Ghost that he would have revenge for his father’s murder, a clear example of his loss of moral conduct and his being overtaken by evil.
The point where the reader can see the most loss of innocence is when Jack and his hunters murdered the pig and smeared its blood on their faces. The painting of the faces hides their former selves and assists them in becoming savages. Later in the novel the boys put the pig's head on a stick as a sign of accomplishment and another boy, Simon, stumbles upon the pig head also known as “The Lord of The Flies” in a peaceful clearing and it starts talking to him. After Simon's conversation with the pigs head he stumbles back to the boys where they mistake him for “The Beast” and end up attacking him and eventually killing him. This death symbolizes the boys finally losing all order and conscience that civilization used to provide them with.
Napoleon is just ruining Snowball’s reputation by fabricating lies about him because a storm is what really damaged the windmill. If the animals knew that Napoleon is lying and think individually for once, they could understand how Napoleon has damaged Snowball to give himself more power, which is terrible leadership and not what Animal Farm wants. Finally, Boxer’s mindset has been totally modified by Napoleon because of the manipulation that he uses on him that now Boxer always thinks Napoleon is right. “ ‘Ah that is different!’ said Boxer ‘If Comrade Napoleon says it, it must be right’ “ (58). Boxer respects Napoleon and what he does for the farm, but not in a way that consists of healthy respect, because Boxer sees a brighter future for the farm not just for Napoleon and his dogs, and Napoleon has manipulated Boxer with a number of lies that Boxer thinks are true.
Humphrey Dunfee is an urban legend intended to scare kids (think: Candyman or the witch 's uvula). It 's first mentioned in Chapter 7, as if kids who are going to be unwound need more to be scared of. The legend says that Humphrey Dunfee 's parents regret unwinding their son, so they 're hunting down pieces of him and rebuilding him, Frankenstein 's monster-style. At the end of the legend, the futility of the mission is addressed. "All the king 's horses and all the king 's men…couldn 't put Humphrey together again" (2.19.173).
After Lennie had messed up over and over, he knew he had done something wrong and had to leave. When Curley had attacked Lennie, he didn’t know his own strength and broke Curley’s hand. “His closed fist was lost in Lennie’s big hand.” (Steinback 63). After that Lennie had killed a puppy because he
