Macbeth growing fear of losing power took over him and he sent murderers to kill Banquo and his son. Yet there was still hope that Macbeth would learn to turn back from these ways, as he had still felt guilt after Banquo’s murder, but he did not. He had only become worse as he became entirely corrupt. Spilling blood, and turning against those who had once praised him. It had gone to the point where his own army only followed him as it was their duty and not because they truly respected and honored

The reader knows of the presence of the hook but not its significance until they learn that Ove wants to commit suicide. When I first read the line "Ove just wants to die in peace." ( Backman 46) I was shocked. Ove is so traditional and has so many principles that he will not relent on. I find it kind of ironic that something like this would even cross his mind.
George Milton decides to end Lennie’s life in order to save him from much pain and suffering in the future. This is an example of an immoral “mercy killing”. George should not have been the judge for Lennie’s life; thus it was wrong for George to determine whether Lennie should have lived or not. No one can make the ultimate decision whether someone should live or die. In a bedroom one night, Gigi Jordan and her severely autistic son, Jude Jordan were conversing as Jude exclaimed, “Dad bad!
OMAM At the end of the book Lennie killed curly’s wife, by snapping her neck. All because he wanted her to be quite. He didn’t mean to, he just didn’t know his own strength because of his mental illness it keeps him from knowing reality. So I think George shouldn’t have killed him. George shouldn’t have killed Lennie, because there could have been another solution to what he did.
John Proctor is basically the tragic hero of “The Crucible”, the reason for this is statement is because the tries to save his wife from being hanged. He cares about his children, he also has tried not to cheat on his wife Elizabeth, while she was ill. At the end of the story Proctor is hanged due of his confession of being a warlock. In the rising action of the story John Proctor is trying to avoid Abigail, he states that “But I will cut off my hand before I’ll ever reach for you again.” (Proctor, 1140). This indicates that Proctor doesn’t want to make the same mistake, he does not want to cheat on his wife again. John doesn’t want to sin and go after Abigail, he wants to be a good man.
He struggled in the areas of self-confidence and loving himself, that even the idea of suicide popped in his head. Fortunately, anytime he ever told his gang about this death defying idea they would tell him killing himself is not the way to go, but sometimes he felt like he couldn't handle the physical and
In the end, George was justified in killing Lennie but he had trouble with killing his friend. He showed that he “shivered”(Steinbeck 106) after he shot Lennie and he wouldn’t kill a good friend without a legitimate reason. George knew that either way, Lennie would die from either Curley or he had to do it. And he did not want Curley to kill him so he made Lennie think of happy things right before his death so it can be peaceful. He was pressured.
Have you ever had to make a difficult decision involving family members? In John Steinbeck’s novella Of Mice and Men, the main character, George, is forced to make a hard decision involving family. George killing Lennie in the book was tragic but it had to happen because he didn’t want him to suffer, also if he hadn’t done it Curley would have tortured him, and Lennie was a threat to other people as well.

The society in this book seemed to be the type that followed the rules or if you didn’t the worst things were going to happen to you.
