The impact of the weather scene is a way to indirectly relate to the murder of Victor’s young brother, William. The author, Shelley utilizes weather to convey the Victor’s emotional feelings about the murder of his bother William. Through imagery in the quote, Shelley is able to utilize words to describe the weather relating them to both the storm and what has happened to our protagonist. To me, the flashes of light illuminate the lake which is his brother. William’s illumination is the light of his life is soon quenched when the author describes the “pitchy darkness” (Shelley 50) hence he unknowingly and quickly he is taken from life into darkness.
When the storm hits, the two brothers run back to the house, but Doodle can not keep up and brother taken over by pride leaves him there alone. That powerful pride that brother has, always breaks his bond with Doodle, after the failed lesson they just had, he gives up on his brother. The narrator, clearly has a lot of things going on inside his head, lost, he just leaves him there because of his failure including his inside pride. “I began to weep and the tear-blurred vision in red before me looked very familiar.

The morning after Macbeth kills Duncan, the sky is unusually dark and the nobleman Ross says to an old man, "Ah, good father, / Thou seest, the heavens, as troubled with man's act, / Threaten his bloody stage" (2.4.4-6). He says it is obvious the heavens are angry with the murdering of the fine King Duncan. The “stage” is the earth in which humans live on and because of Duncan's death, the stage is bloody. It becomes noteworthy that after every scene that evil happens, say a murder or betrayal, a scene with blood in it
Frankenstein see’s how destructive lightning really is when a nearby tree is struck by lightning during a storm, “ As I stood at the door, on a sudden I beheld a stream of fire issue from an old and beautiful oak which stood about twenty yards from our house… I never beheld anything so utterly destroyed.” (Shelley 36). Victor was fascinated with the power within a lightning strike, so, being the bookworm Victor is, he studied the practice of Galvanism, or the bringing of life by using electricity. Frankenstein had ignored how “utterly destructive” lighting can be due to the fame and fortune that would come with this experiment. Later he would realize that no fame or fortune would be worth the utter destruction soon to
The first example of this is when Kino’s brother says “It is the pearl said Juan Tomas there is a devil in this Pearl”(23). This is said when Kino’s house is burned down because someone wanted the pearl. Another example is right after Kino found the pearl the narrator said “So that he became curiously every man’s enemy”(64). Now Kino has become very unfortunate because if every man wants his pearl people will do anything to get. The third example is at the very end “And Kino drew back his arm and flung the Pearl with all his might”(89-90).
“the most merciful threw stones at him... they burned his side with an iron for branding steers” (Marquez 977). All these punishments were warranted by the assumptions at the beginning of the story. Instead of examining further into why or how the winged man had arrived at the scene, the townspeople invented the answers. His misfortune reached its peak at this time for these punishments may have increased the angel’s recovery time. “at the beginning of December some large, stiff feathers began to grow on his wings, the feathers of a scarecrow...
He body was reduced to ashes in the lightning storms. “You gotten so… bitter.” “336 years alone in the dark tends to do that to people.” “Jack, what will it take for me to mend our friendship?” “The magic word.” Jack whipped around to face her with his eye. He slowly mouthed out the word. “Sorry?” Valentina read outloud. “Oh.

On the contrary, “The Devil and Tom Walker”, the main character, realized that his deal with the devil was bad for him, he tried to deceive the devil. At the end, he was taken by the devil and everything he had earned became nothing. “On searching his coffers all his bonds and mortgages were found reduced to cinders. In place of gold and silver his iron chest was filled with chips and shavings; two skeletons lay in his stable instead of his half-starved horses, and the very next day his great house took fire and was burnt to the ground”. (Washington,1824, p.10 ) Similarly, they both deserved what they ask for because they desired something more
