In Cold Blood Essay #2 Although Capote portrays Holcomb as a quiet, safe, little town, he displays that Holcomb was the 7th victim in the murder; therefore he exhibits that even the most safest of places can succumb to evil. Capote employs symbolism amidst the devilish acts committed against the Clutters to establish that not only Clutters fell to evil that night, Holcomb fell at the feet of evil that night as well. As Herb’s past hunting partners send off their friend through the burning of their tainted possessions, Capote goes into depth on the details of the fire: “How was it possible that such effort, such plain virtue, could overnight be reduced to this--smoke, thinning as it rose and was received by the big, annihilating sky”(Capote 79). As the Clutters past possessions are reduced to “thinning” smoke, it represents how Holcomb is also “thinning” due to the wide stretched horror that this evil has brought about. Capote works to emphasize the shift that occurs in Holcomb.

With this wording, Holden goes through the trouble to make sure the reader knows that he is nowhere near Mr. Spencer’s adulthood, even though Holden is on the cusp of adulthood.

Shakespeare presents death as an inevitable act of life, noting that all that is living must eventually come to an end. Due to “Hamlet” being a Shakespearean tragedy, the theme of death recurs throughout the play. Additionally, Shakespeare can be seen as using revenge as the main motive of a character’s murder, which makes “Hamlet” a revenge tragedy. The tragic nature means that by the end of the play, majority of the characters would have died. In this case, many of the characters have died due to murder or suicide.

Caesar even refused the crown three times when it was offered upon him, but we are told about this by the unreliable conspirator Casca. (1.2.245-261) We know that Caesar had full confidence in Brutus because of his shocked, dying words,”Et tu, Brutè?—Then fall, Caesar.” (3.1.85) It implies that Caesar is content with falling if one of his most noble associates and well loved friend, Brutus, would forsake him. Caesar was also stabbed 33 times. (5.1.54) When someone is stabbed that many times it is very personal.
