La Fleur killed Mr. Naquin is due to the fact that Mr. La fleur did wish death upon Jake as many guest from the event heard. When one wishes death upon someone it may mean that one hates the person so much that they could hurt them or even wish them the worse , possibly even death. Finally, although some may argue for what has been analyzed , one thing one may not be able to argue is the fact that Ms. La Fleur fingerprints were found on the Mardi Gras beads which killed Mr. Naquin . When someone's fingerprints are found it usually means that they have touched or been around the person or crime scene. Which makes it very hard for Ms. La fleur to argue against being that she was the last person seen with Mr. Naquin and could possible be the last person who left fingerprints on the beads.
Finally, Creon comes to the realization that his actions in the play led to the death of his son before he learns of Eurydice’s suicide. Creon first learns of his wife’s death in line 1408 of episode 5, when the messenger comments on his grief, mentioning “the rest, in the house”, the “rest” being the deceased Eurydice. However, before this point, in line 1393, Creon describes his prior actions, such as the sentencing of Antigone, as “crimes” that are “so senseless, so insane”. He describes them as such because they led to his son’s death, but he came to this realization before he learned of Eurydice’s suicide. Therefore, her death did not contribute to Creon’s epiphany in any way, and is irrelevant in this

Although Capote describes the Clutters as a symbolic representation of a perfect family, his importance is to show the difference of lifestyles from Perry coming from broken homes to the Clutters home therefore; he contends family life is a key determinant that can affect a person, later in life. Capote uses an anecdote to help his readers formulate where Perry came from and how he became abnormal. After Perry made an “admission he hated to make” of himself and Dick having to be crazy, after killing a perfect family, Capote says: “His mother an alcoholic, had strangled to death on her own vomit. Of her children two sons and two daughters, only the young girl, Barbara, had entered ordinary life, married, begun raising a family. Fern the other daughter, jumped out the window of a San Francisco hotel.
In The Crucible, John Proctor’s tragic flaw-his considerable amount of dignity-drove him to his ruinous death, establishing him as the tragic hero. Even though John brought his destined defeat upon himself, he is still considered the tragic hero. In the beginning of The Crucible, John Proctor was thought able enough to stop the allegations of innocent people because he was outspoken against the accepted beliefs throughout Salem. This gives him the title of a virtuous character because he is being beneficial to the community. When Arthur Miller reveals John Proctor’s past liaison with Abigail Williams to the reader it is unknown by the rest of the community.
In Fences, by August Wilson, Troy’s selfishness makes him a tragic hero because it causes him to make decisions that hurt not only himself but ultimately the people who he loves most. Troy’s inner selfishness is the sole reason for his affair with Alberta, and it is what eventually triggers the split in his family. When trying to stop the metaphorical bleeding caused by his affair, Troy characterizes himself with Rose as “we”, to which Rose responds with, “All of a sudden it’s ‘we.’ Where was ‘we’ at when you was down there rolling around with some godforsaken woman? ‘We’ should have come to an understanding before you started making a damn fool of yourself” (68). Rose is totally offended that he would even consider them together, and rightly
Grendel by John Gardner has captured the attention of all who have read it and expresses the eventual loss of Grendel’s innocence. Grendel is depicted as a mass murderer in the original Anglo-Saxon epic poem and under normal circumstances one would not second guess that Grendel’s death was well deserved. However, opinions may change when one discovers that the monster is unaware of morals or has dealt with issues that corrupt his innocence. Grendel grew up lonely and his childhood was rather negative, ultimately changing his views of the world. In Chapter two Grendel wondered all the way to the human world where he ended up getting stuck in a tree.
I killed you, my son, without intending to, and you,as well as my wife...Everything I touch goes wrong and on my head fate climbs up with its overwhelming load.”The evidence supports my claim because it shows that Creon realizes he’s wrong and it makes the reader feel somewhat sympathetic towards him for losing his family but not so much to where he isn't still seen as a villain because he is somewhat responsible for his wife and sons
As the portrait significantly becomes more hideous, Dorian gradually loses his mind. The reader understands that what eventually leads Dorian to kill Basil Hallward, the only true friend he has, is the constant reminder of the evil found at the heart of Dorian’s nature, as represented by the portrait. In Dorian doing so, the reader realises that not only does Dorian kill Basil, he also kills his only chance of redemption of his soul. The reader realises that the statement that Dorian had expressed earlier in the story was the truth: “Yes, Basil could have saved him. But it was too late now.” (Wilde 109-110).
