The ambiguity initially starts in the very beginning when Francis mentions that he is “going to kill” Larry LaSalle; Cormier uses this technique of foreshadowing and first person narration so that the readers are constantly alert to the subtle early warnings that Larry LaSalle is not what he made out to be, that he might be wearing a mask.

In the short story “The Cask of Amontillado” Montresor states, “I must not only punish but punish with impunity. A wrong is unredressed when retribution overtakes its redresser. It is equally unredressed when the avenger fails to make himself felt as such to him who has done the wrong” (Poe).

Oedipus needed answers, so he sent for a blind seer named Teiresias to give him the answers he was looking for. Once Teiresias knows what’s going on he dreads to tell Oedipus that he is the killer. The two men go back and forth until Oedipus says something that triggers Teiresias “you planned it, you had it done, you all but killed him with your own hands: if you had eyes, I’d say the crime was yours, and yours alone” (1.332-334). Oedipus still given the information and basically the whole truth is too caught up in his head and ignorant to the facts. This was an example of the irony that Oedipus is ‘blind’.

The irony is in the fact that Casca is right to be worried, while Cassius dismisses
They controlled him with hope and the foretelling. The first apparition told Macbeth to “Beware of Macduff”. Which is foretelling. This lets the reader know that Macbeth will either kill Macduff, or be destroyed by him.
We could see, from this point, The warrior and Duncan’s “worthiest cousin” (1.4.15) is so terrified by his own action that a sound would scare him. While he is haunted by guilt, Macbeth has to secure his throne by murdering Banquo and Fleance. At the end of the feast which was set up for assassinating Banquo and his son, Macbeth is again terrified by the news that Fleance has fled and Banquo’s ghost will dried blood over his body.

Piggy is murdered, but specifically “The rock struck Piggy a glancing blow from chin to knee…” (pg. 181) The idea of having his head crushed is a clear metaphor that where the knowledge was once stored to keep the boys alive, is now gone. And then again, immediately following, the entirety of the set power roles are reversed, and Ralph then becomes the hunted and the newly defined savages take over and overthrow him and would’ve (if uninterrupted) killed him, showing the importance of knowledge in this type of scenario. Knowledge is the foundation for civilization and without it the “primal instincts” that everyone possesses kick in and their priorities then become skewed.
Thank you for sending Valma Murphy back to see me some three years since I was last involved in her care, when she underwent a left total hip joint replacement. As you are aware, Valma is generally in good health but does have an extensive orthopaedic history and did develop a pulmonary embolus a few months following the right total hip joint replacement. She was treated with warfarin for around five years. Of late, Valma reports no cardiorespiratory issues, no current gastro-intestinal or genito-urinary symptoms. There are features suggestive of sleep apnoea.

The railroad had contributed many advantages, therefore dramatically affecting economic, cultural and social lives of the people in the United States. Economically, those advantages included more directed routes, greater speed, safety, and comfort than other modes of land travel, more dependable schedules, a larger volume of traffic, and year-round service. The railroad covered fifty miles in about an hour, 700 miles in a day. It went where canals and rivers did not go—directly to the loading platforms of factories or across the arid West.
Cleaver first grew aware of his status as a Black American at San Quentin prison. He instantly hated the white oppressors and America’s elevated slavery. Resenting “how the white man…used the black woman” in the days of slavery, Cleaver rapes a white girl, spitting on the white man’s laws, and reaping pleasure from “defiling his women. ”1 He repudiates the notion that black men find white women attractive; rather, the white supremacy drills its idea of beauty into the black man simply by its omnipresence.
