Although the personified reader that Kincaid outlines, an ordinary and ignorant Westerner, may strike the readers as a prejudiced stereotype, the author provides a taste of the dehumanized “Otherness” that the Antiguans have endured for generations. No longer the tranquil
Jekyll writes in his confession “Many a man would have even blazoned such irregularities as I was guilty of; but from the high views that I had set before me, I regarded and hid them with an almost morbid sense of shame” (Stevenson 49). Jekyll’s alter-ego Hyde liberates him from the necessity to follow the social conventionality and rules; however, the sensation of deliverance becomes extremely addictive. Contrariwise to Dr. Jekyll, Mr. Hyde is a hideous character without any fears, conscience or remorse that capable to commit a murder. As Enfield describes Hyde to Utterson: “He is not easy to describe. There is something wrong with his appearance; something displeasing, something down-right detestable.
Have you ever wondered why people kill each other, the same species of animals killing each other just for the fun of it, why would and twisted mine do a bad thing like that? Imagined if you wanted to kill someone just for fun and you have that want to kill someone for fun. These are why serial killers kill and who or what motivates them. But not all killers are the same because I found out there are different types of serial killers like Power & Control killers want to find dominates and power over their victim like example,they want to feel like they make the rules on who lives and dies. Visionary killers kill because they have really bad visions of their past and their childhood and they might kill certain people because of what happened
Eventually, he learns this is the man who impregnated his wife, and Chillingworth begins to seek revenge. He moves in with Dimmesdale, and claims he will care for him, but the public cannot see that his intention is to torture Dimmesdale. Hawthorne explains, “The intellect of Roger Chillingworth had now a sufficiently plain path before it. It was not, indeed, precisely that which he had laid out for himself to tread. Calm, gentle, passionless, as he appeared, there was yet, we fear, a quiet depth of malice, hitherto latent, but active now, in this unfortunate old man, which led him to imagine a more intimate revenge than any mortal had ever wreaked upon an enemy” (126).
That deceives the reader into thinking that everything in the life of Richard Cory is perfect. People make this same mistake in real life, oftentimes with people suffering from mental illness on the receiving end. They see him this way because of the mask he wears: as a “gentleman from sole to crown” (Robinson 3). Their misconception leads to a probable shock after unearthing the events portrayed in the poem’s closing line when it is stated that he “went home and put a bullet through his head” (Robinson 16). The juxtaposition of the calm summer setting of the previous line also contributes to the climax’s impact.
Indifference is destructive and inhumane Indifference is defined by Elie Wiesel as lacking empathy or keeping silent while there is discrimination (Anthony, n.d.).

B Anthony who spoke for women’s right, straight out a theme that the attitude of indifference is destructive and inhumane. The two speeches by Elie and Susan have different topics and subject.
Within Mary Shelley’s gothic novel, the viewer can identify how although society calls him a monster they still distinguish him from a human standpoint. Which can be witnessed through Shelley ’s language; her word choice illustrates that even though the characters label him a monster, they still hold him accountable the same way they would a human. A critical piece of language that classifies him as human is when Victor refers to him as a murderer, “I repaired to a criminal judge in the town, and told him I had an accusation to make; that I knew the destroyer of my family; and that I required him to exert his whole authority for the apprehension of the murderer” (Shelley, 202). The choice Victor made to call him a murder rather than a predator shows that the creature is more closely related to humans rather than animals. Furthermore, the creature is referred to as a murderer, meaning that he has developed the mental capacity to commit a crime.
In the novel In Cold Blood, Truman Capote explores aspects of Perry Smiths and Richard Hickocks childhoods that may have affected their psychology and lead to the 1959 Clutter family murder. The fact that Truman Capote included these memories and old letters from their past was to show that he thought it played a part in the greater problem although he does not directly say that. He gives the reader the choice to decide for themselves, whether they think the awful childhoods of the main characters were the reasons they thought it was acceptable to murder a family in their own home in cold blood, or weather it was completely and fully their choice to commit this crime. From the way the writer describes Smiths past, it gives the reader the impression of a difficult childhood. His family had abandoned him and gave him away to nuns, who mistreated him and gave him scarring memories.
This implies that even though Perry will murder her in cold blood, he still is considerate enough to make her feel at home. "Perry was not a gifted liar, or a prolific one" the diction of prolific puts the emphasis on that he doesn't lie very
