For many people that think Titus Andronicus is all about violence, well it is mainly from the criticism from “The Pequod” where it talks about violent act is the style and context in which it is executed whether we respond to violence with shock, laughter or satisfaction like for example the death of Titus’s sons in battle and how he buried them. Some of the lens that were used was revenge and feminism also stereotypes, revenge is a major part of Titus Andronicus and getting even but not every succeeds in doing so. Feminism comes in when Lavinia got raped by Tamora’s sons Demetrius and Chiron and how they took advantage of her body, she is represented as an object or thing. Additionally, how Tamora is an sexulised character, including by virtue of what trying to understand if Tamora is liberating or in male fantasy. Tamora
He exemplified the ways of both a hero and a villain. However, it is my opinion that he is a villain. I believe this because he could be an extremely violent leader and because he never fully reigned over one of the places he conquered/ruled. He is a villain because he murdered thousands of people and soldiers from different nations. Alexander tortured many of his victims and then he killed them.
The author’s tone in this quote is violent and bitter. Eric saying that he “hated almost everyone “, would support the reader’s thinking towards what kind of person Eric is, and what Eric is thinking. Eric’s use of language almost immediately gives the reader a hint of what he is capable of, not in the sense that he would literally “rip is head off and eat it” but in the sense that he is capable of doing bad things. Given the fact that people throughout the United States have already heard of the mass shooting in Columbine, the reader would promptly identify Eric as the killer and they would be right. The author’s purpose could be to keep the reader thinking: who is the killer?
He does this by using lines such as “When you have seen vicious mobs lynch your mothers and fathers at will and drown your sisters and brothers at whim”. By using this kind of incendiary language and sentence structure he lets the audience envision how horrible it would be to see this happening to you or your own friends. Through the emotions he provokes, King is able to pursue the reader to hear what he has to say about these outrage of acts. King asserts negotiation is the best way to resolve problems, but when it was not an option on the table, he obliges to confront injustices using nonviolent direct action. He emphasized “the purpose of the direct action is to create a situation so crisis-packed that it will inevitably open the door to negotiation.
In William Shakespeare’s tragedy, “Romeo and Juliet”, Mercutio was murdered and cursed both the Montague and Capulet families in responsibility of his death. Both families played a major role in the cause of Mercutio’s death because of their refusal to push the generation old feud aside for the peace of the realm, they both allowed the hate to trickle down the ranks to the servants and townspeople, and by provoking arguments with each other, knowing the stakes are high and the tension is thick. Tybalt also played a significant role in the death of Mercutio, aside from being Mercutio’s actual murderer. The initial cause of the dispute is never actually addressed in the play, but it is clear that the hate brews on both sides. A good example of how deeply rooted the feud is during the opening act, Act 1 Scene 1.
Diablo, who is a part of the squad, killed his wife and children; to put it simply, he burns people when he gets angry. It was suggested that it was partially his wife 's fault for her death because she knew the risks of getting her husband mad. This suggestion that the victim is to be blamed is what
Also, Alexander drank and that made him make poor judgemental calls, which led to more bad stuff. Alexander had ordered that all those who were in sanctuary or even thought about it were to be killed (Document C). This shows that he hurt people, even those who were in the temple to keep safe, were to be killed. He had also set policies saying that his soldiers can’t be married to local woman, and that shouldn’t have been his choice to make, it should have been the people’s choice because that’s what a great king does, he listens to his fellows questions and askings. His thinking was cruel and all the power that he got from conquering cities and not losing any battles made him think that he was the most powerful man in the world, and that led to all the bad judgemental calls that he had made and at some point regretted that he made
The Death of Julius Caesar In William Shakespeare’s “The Tragedy of Julius Caesar”, Caesar is stabbed to death by a group of conspirators. There are many reasons as to why Caesar is killed but it ultimately comes down to two main reasons. Caesar is killed because the conspirators want him dead and he is very arrogant, this proves that bad things happen too self centered dishonorable people. One reason the conspirators want Julius Caesar dead is because they believe Caesar thinks he is better than everyone else. “I was born free as Caesar; so were you: / We both have fed as well, and we can both endure the winter’s cold as well as he.” Another reason why the conspirators want Julius Caesar dead is because they believe Caesar won 't be a good
Murder can be defined as “the unlawful premeditated killing of one human being by another”. How then, are others able to make us sympathize with not only murderers, but people who have committed horrendous crimes? For example, the media is constantly attempting to humanize rapists and even terrorists with phrases like “lone wolf” or “alienated and adrift.” Such phrases make some of us want to pity the criminal. This can be seen when we compare Perry Smith and Dick Hickock from Truman Capote’s In Cold Blood. Capote portrays only one of these two seemingly distinct characters (Perry) in a way that the reader feels the need to relate to and even sympathize with him.
However, Hamlet thought Claudius is behind the arras, so he kills him (Polonius) directly. After Polonius, the conflict between Gertrude and Hamlet became fiercer and Hamlet lost himself more. From the personal view, Polonius’s death is one of the victims in this revenge, but this is also what he deserves because he used to be the Old King’s councillor whereas he is helping Old King’s murder to hurt Old King’s son. He is smart but he is not loyal, therefore, he died in the right path. After that, Polonius’s daughter, Ophelia died.
In the book, Ender kills two other children out of self-defence. I think Orson Scott card is saying something about violence using this book. I think he is saying that violence is a complicated thing, and that you really can see it from three different angles. The first angle, is that violence is bad, and Card says this through Ender’s remorse and guilt when he finds out he killed Bonzo and Stilson. He’s saying that even though it was out of self-defence, lives we’re still taken and we shouldn’t normalize the killing of children just because they started the fight first.
This part of the book shows that Claire could be partly responsible for the accident and could probably be also a perpetrator in this situation. Tom Brennan also added to Daniels rage when Daniel was angry by trying to stop him from doing something stupid and starting a fight. The community of Mumbilli could also be perpetrators altogether in a way because when they were still in Mumbilli the Brennan’s got a lot of hate from the town even having “shame on you Brennan’s” (P. 174) written on their back wall at their Mumbilli
The last reason why Romeo was super lame for was because when he was at the monument he killed Paris without knowing that it was him.some evidence I found was when Paris said, “O, lamb slain (falls) if thou be merciful, open the tomb lay me with lady Juliet.” I also found some other evidence when Romeo said, “In faith I will, let me peruse this face… Mercutio 's kinsman, noble county paris. Another reason of why Romeo was so blame for was when he said, “Ha banishment? Be merciful say “death” for exile hath more terror in his look, much more than death. Do not say “banishment” he said this when Friar Laurence told him that he was banished from Verona for killing Tybalt in a sword fight and for killing county Paris. All in all these are some reasons for why to blame Romeo in the play Romeo and Juliet.
Many of the accusations Anna proclaims permit to the emotions of the victims families that have been robbed of their loved one by the said killer. My issue with not allowing the murder to see judgement, is the fact that they have done many horrific things to those they have slaughtered. When someone is born into this world, they are given
This prompts the readers to re-evaluate the killers character, until he murders the rest of the family. Ultimately, the theme is how widespread beliefs of a person can misconstrue their nature. This misunderstanding can result in the distortion of a person’s character, transforming them into something they never would have become. This is extremely applicable to the Misfit. Throughout the story, the reader becomes aware of the inherent negative perceptions of the misfit.
