Chaos at the Do Lung Bridge Apocalypse Now showcases the story of Captain Willard and his mission to assassinate rogue colonel Kurtz while emphasizing the overall themes of the insanity of war, the desire to escape its terror, and the overall loss of morality one experiences during warfare. These three themes are demonstrated in a variety of ways at the Do Lung Bridge in what is regarded as one of the most significant scenes in the entire film. The scene at the bridge first fades in from black to reveal an anxious Willard trudging along a trench followed by a dazed Lance, tripping on the last of his acid. The scene is shot so that the cameras are deliberately level with the crouching soldiers and film close to the characters’ faces to help the audience feel as if they are actually in Vietnam looking at Willard and the other troops in the trenches. As Willard and Lance continue along the trenches, gunfire and bombs detonate in the

Thesis: Uncontrolled thirst for power has led to the demise and destruction of many characters in novels and plays and Macbeth undoubtedly consciously chooses to go down the same path, ultimately costing the healthiness of his mental state as it progressively deteriorates as the murders grow more reckless and cruel due to Macbeth’s escalating need for power. First, Macbeth lets his thirst for power cloud his vision from all the good deeds he and his noblemen have been accomplishing, such as defeating the Norwegians together and his lack of appreciation dissolves to nothing but bitterness towards his noblemen as each murder happens. Since the beginning of the play, Duncan is a kind, naïve, gullible friend and king to Macbeth, however after Macbeth

Montresor ends up luring Fortunato down to the catacombs with him, and chains Fortunato and builds a wall around him, leaving him there to die. Throughout the story, Montresor shows who he really is by showing signs of anger, and yet cleverness. The story begins with Montresor stating he will seek and attain revenge for the thousand injuries Fortunato has caused him. Montresor has been left extremely angry with Fortunato for what he has told Montresor, and therefore, Montresor believes the ideal punishment, or revenge, is to kill and get rid of Fortunato. Montresor’s hatred for Fortunato is what leads him to his plan of chaining and burying Fortunato behind a wall.
Polonius’s death did not only affect Ophelia, but it also caused Laertes to go mad with revenge, desiring “To cut his [Hamlet’s] throat i’ the church” (109, line 124). Not only does Laertes go mad with a murderous craving for retribution, he also shows mental deterioration of logic in his planning for Hamlet’s demise. Laertes is so obsessed by creating many ways to kill hamlet (with a sword, poison on a sword, poison on a cup, slitting his throat in a church) that he accidentally causes the fatality of Hamlet, himself, Claudius, and

After the monster is abandoned for a second time he proclaims “I declared everlasting war against the species and more than all, against him who had formed me” (Shelley 121) and says “my feelings were those of rage and revenge.” (Shelley 121)
Another example, when the author showed imagery is when Fortunato is screaming in pain, where he is tie against the walls. In “The Cask of Amontillado” it said, “A succession loud and shrill screams bursting suddenly from the throat of the chained Fortunato.” When the author tells this, you can visualize how Fortunato was screaming for his life to let him go and being tortured. Montresor chains Fortunato against the walls and start burying him alive. Just because Montresor felt insulted he planned to murder his friend. As a result, he got what he wanted, revenge all due to a
