One of the men leaves to provide them with wine and food while they wait for nightfall. When arriving back into town, he buys poison and adds it to the wine. Meanwhile, the other two that stayed behind to watch the gold, decided to kill him and they would end up sharing the gold. The irony in the story comes down to all three of them dying.

Macbeth and the biblical story of Ahab are similar in the way that two Nobel men, Macbeth and Ahab, allowed their sinful desires of land and power to rapidly lead them to take the life of someone else. Though Macbeth and Ahab were guilty, Lady Macbeth and Jezebel were equally responsible for the deaths of innocent people. They tempted their husbands to commit murder when they believed that was the only thing that would fulfill their husbands desires. Unfortunately, we saw that the result of both of these stories ended with terrible consequences. For most of the characters in these stories the result was their own lives.

He had come like a thief in the night.” I think the people in these stories both feel guilty, that’s why they are imagining stuff.

"At once the three young rioters began To ran, and reached the tree, and there they found A pile of gold florins on the ground, Now-coined, eight bushels of them as them as they thought.

I want to explain why the actions the Pyncheons are taking are affecting their life, I will talk about who have greed and and why, along with examples, also how pride is tied with greed. I will explain why the unfortunate events are happening to the Pyncheons, either if it's witchcraft or greed, along with coincidence of course. Considering I don't believe in witchcraft, I would assume that it was greed that drove the Colonel to hang Maule, because he wanted the land that belonged to the Maules, and all of the male Pyncheon part of the family deaths were caused by a real disease, just a pure coincidence, not a curse. Greed ran in the Pyncheon family, which was tearing the family apart slowly; considering this, greed would ultimately doom the

The best example of Richards’s compulsive characteristics is the way he killed Frank. The Author writes very bluntly, “Richard shot Frank in front of the boys” (570). We can infer that the author writes this way, because he wants the reader to wonder why Richard is obsessed with his wife, and he loves her more than anything. She is his pride, and he will do anything to keep her, even if it means killing her lover in front of his children. This is why he is so compulsive when he kills frank.
In act four of Shakespeare's "Macbeth" Macbeth murders most of a noble man's family out of impulse and paranoia. He suspected said nobleman of plotting against him, and much like the murder of his friend Banquo, he killed him before he got the chance.

The man Macbeth suspected, Maduff, was suspect because he refused to show up to any events that Macbeth attended, and when Macbeth went to ask the witches they warned him Macduff was to be cautioned. This time Macbeth decides right away that Macduff must go.
