As the disasters that befell Salem were caused by the young girls ' hysteria of witchcraft, some of Miller 's critics perceived Abigail and her squad of followers as maleficent and vindictive driven by anger, cruelty and personal interests. Elizabeth Frayn interprets the hostility of the girls as a natural reaction to the negative view they receive in their society. For instance, Abigail is always regarded as a malicious girl who seeks to supplant Elizabeth as Proctor 's wife, and she is further motivated by Proctor 's threat to expose their affair if she does not clear his wife 's name ( Frayn 95). The girls are controlled by a fanatic society. Like Abigail, each of those girls has her own cause to be angry and simulate to kill her victims.
(4) “ Well, if i cannot keep Heathcliff for my friend-- if Edgar will be mean and jealous, I’ll try to break their hearts by breaking my own. That will be a prompt way of finishing all, when I am pushed to extremity!” (Ch. 11, pg 107) Lady Macbeth orders Macbeth and his cronies to do her dirty work. She has various people killed in order for her husband to become the king. Apparently she began to feel guilty.
He told what happened between Romeo and Tybalt and so whose fault was that so that is why he should be pardoned. Lord Capulet should be punished because he was always angry and mean to her daughter and so that is why he should be
Angered by this, Proctor physically attacks Abigail and denounces her as a whore, and has to back up what he says with evidence. Overcome with emotion, and distraught of how far he allowed the court’s corruption to continue, he confesses to having an affair with Abigail and her plot to trying to rid of Elizabeth in hopes of replacing her. By telling the truth, John shows growth in his character, as he accepts that his good name must be ruined to protect innocent victims, ““I have made a bell in my honor! I have rung the doom of my good name – and you will believe me. Mr. Danforth” (page 116)!
Patient sufferers! Behold your dearest rights crushed to the earth! See your sons murdered, and your wives, mothers and sisters doomed to prostitution. In the name of the Merciful God, and by all that life is worth, let it no longer be a debatable question whether it is better to choose Liberty or death.” We can see the frustration over the abuse of the children, wives, sisters, and even mothers of these men. The emotions that Garnet uses in his speech has a huge impact on his
Tamora’s resolve get the most violent revenge possible – ‘I’ll find a day to massacre them all, | And raze their faction and their family (1.1.455-6) – continues into her implementing the same inhuman brutality that has been displayed by the Romans. The atrociousness that took place against Lavinia is a gruesome, yet critical, component of the play. The episode brings sexual violence into the story, and ushers in a conspicuous stretch of verbal violence – that is inherent in the speech. The sexually vicious conversation between Chiron and Demetrius is both sexist and masochistic: ‘Stay, madam, here is more belongs to her [Lavinia]: | First thrash the corn, then after burn the straw. | This minion stood upon her chastity’
Grendel’s death at the hands of his barbaric challengers produced a revengeful mother, whose only vow is to cause suffering to all those responsible… They say that a mother's love is stronger than distance, more powerful than time, and can be transcended to the grave. I watched in disgust as those cruel creatures celebrated the wrongful death of my beloved son. Murders are what they are; their crimes are unjust and gruesome, yet they believe they are the hero’s. I don’t recall a time when I thought so highly of myself, that I would celebrate my murder of another. I cannot rip my eyes away from the sight of the dreadful celebration; their smiles are disgusting, they have drank enough mead to feed an entire continent, and they are prancing
Hamlet also repents his crimes with his own life, but he face far larger crimes. He has wronged Ophelia so greatly that she killed herself, murdered Polonius and murdered Laertes. “Here, thou incestuos, murderous, damned Dane,/ Drink of this potion: is thy union here?/ Follow my mother... Heaven make thee free of it, I follow thee... O I die Horatio... Which have solicited- the rest is silence.
In this scene the use of dismal music is powerful because it totally changes the mood and really shows how evil and manipulative a person Cercei is. After Mirri Maz Duur killed Danny’s husband she is filled with rage and is getting ready to burn her.“Mirri Maz Duur opened her mouth, but made no reply. As she stepped away, Dany saw that the contempt was gone from the Magei’s flat black eyes; in its place was something that might have been fear.” In this passage it shows how much Dany hates Mirri Maz Duur because she murdered her husband. In the movie the director uses suspenseful and non-diegetic music. Again the use this deep harmonious music helps bring out Daenerys bitter side, and her hate for Mirri Maz Duur for killing her
Furthermore, the irregularity of Medea’s situation stems from another characteristic of the play. Such feature is the intensity of her revenge. Medea’s reaction to Jason’s betrayal goes above and beyond readers’ expectations. It fixates them in a state of shock and consternation. Medea’s choice of killing her children in her own home is a very heartless, harmful decision that would impose unlimited pain on both her and Jason.
