He may have wanted to kill Claudius and had all of the evidence to do so but acting like he was crazy was not who he was. This led to his tragic flaw which was his indecisiveness to kill Claudius when he had the chance. If he did this and stayed true to himself and his immediate family, all of the death at the end wouldn’t have
George took care of Lennie because his aunt died and George knew that Lennie wouldn’t be able to survive on his own. Then George has something to do, in which it is the most difficult thing to do, kill his best friend Lennie. Clearly, George killing Lennie is the best decision George had made. On the other hand, There were other actions to choose from. George and Lennie could have instead run away and
The crack of the gun shook many souls who had read the book Of Mice And Men. In the book Of Mice And Men by John Steinbeck, George kills Lennie towards the end of the book and there are questions on whether it was wright or not for George to kill Lennie. George was right to kill Lennie because George would end it for him quickly, George would do it compassionately instead of Curley doing it in a bad way, and it would relieve Lennie of the pain and agony he has been through due to his illness. In almost every corner in the world, murder is illegal. However, in this particular situation, I believe that George 's decision to kill Lennie was acceptable due to the fact that it would have been easier for Lennie to die from George then having Curley
Although it doesn’t sound like a sacrifice, it is. George had to kill Lennie to avoid being confronted by Curley and Carlson, who were both set on killing Lennie themselves. George knows that when he kills Lennie that he and Lennie will finally be at peace, when he quotes on page 106, “No Lennie, look down there acrost the river, like you can almost see the place.” This shows how George knows that when Lennie dies, he will live on in the peaceful place that he and George had imagined. George had to sacrifice Lennie for his own well being, and it was definitely not an easy thing to do, especially considering everything they had been through. Life isn’t always fair for people.
This much is true for Victor’s failure to take responsibility for not only teaching his creation about life but also failure to take responsibility for the actions of his creation. “Frankenstein! You belong then to my enemy… you shall be my first victim” (153). Victor’s knows that he is responsible for the death of William because he abandoned his creation and made the monster learn the hard way that he would not be accepted into society. But he has no choice but to let Justine take the fall for the death of his brother because he fears being seen as a madman.
In John Steinbeck’s Of Mice and Men, legality is often deemed less important than morality in terms of decision making. Multiple characters throughout the novel disregard the law in order to carry out their vision of justice. When Curley, the son of the ranch owner, discovers his wife’s body, he is furious. So furious that he plans to track Lennie, a new employee with an intellectual disability, down and murder him to get revenge for his mistake. Regardless of the law, Curley’s morals based on vengeance and masculinity drive him to kill Lennie.
I think this isn’t because, the ghost of the king said, “Till the foul crimes done in my days of nature” is meaning he did some bad stuff when he was alive that he is not proud of (DOC.A). Also in the Treatment of Gertrude, hamlet accidently killed Polonius thinking it was the king spying on them in front of Gertrude, before Polonius dies he says “O, I am slain!”. Right after that Hamlet told his mother, Gertrude, that the new king killed his father, she didn’t believe and told him to be quiet that she couldn’t handle it. After that happened Hamlet sees the ghost of the king again, saying that “To speak to her, hamlet” (doc.
Hamlet is his biggest enemy and in the end, Claudius didn’t defeat Hamlet, he defeated himself. Claudius didn’t do anything special or out of the ordinary to kill Hamlet and yet, Hamlet unraveled himself. Hamlet could have killed Claudius when the ghost came to him and told him to but instead, warned Claudius that he knew by putting on the play. Then Claudius discovered Hamlet knew and that is what set Claudius off to start planning how to kill him. If Hamlet had just acted, Claudius would have died and gone to hell.
Hamlet said sorry for killing Polonius by “accident” but, he doesn’t seem to be sorry at all, he just dragged Polonius across the floor behind him (III.iv.207-20). He didn’t even bother to save Polonius when he stabbed him; he just let him die. When King Claudius find out, he didn’t even want to punish Hamlet for killing Polonius because he loves Hamlet’s mother and Hamlet is loved b y the people, punishing him will rise a rebellion against him. Despite the crime that was created by Hamlet, a prince with high social class, he didn’t received any punishment, it was covered up. Polonius didn’t receive any justice for his death.
According to (doc c), Hamlet kills Ophelia’s father for the no reason. Ophelia clearly is not happy about this action that Hamlet could have easily avoided. Also, Hamlet isn’t that respectful when it comes to the harassment and the torture that he inflicts on Ophelia just to get words out of her or other’s mouths. Ophelia is deeply affected by Hamlet during his plan to kill Claudius, and a common theory made by readers (doc d) is that Ophelia drowned herself because Hamlet is doing everything wrong to avenge the king, causing Ophelia to feel stressed over the limit. Hamlet also faked to love Ophelia to get information from her.

When Zachry’s father and brother were attacked by the Kona, Zachry lied to his fellow Valleymen and said that the Kona had attacked them when he wasn’t there so that he would not look like a coward for not intervening and saving his family. This lie led Zachry to believed that his soul was “half-stoned”, meaning that his chances of being reincarnated as a Valleyman were reduced because he acted like a savage, against Sonmi’s wishes. Zachry did not kill Meronym when Old Georgie tempted him because if he committed murder, he would be going against Sonmi and would be reincarnated as a savage Kona, the worst reincarnation for a Valleyman. The remainder of Zachry’s decisions after lying about the Kona attack were based around proving to Sonmi that he was worthy of being reincarnated as a Valleyman. Sonmi influenced Zachry to do good in life out of his fear of his soul being stoned and him ending up as a Kona in his next life.
Should the mentally challenged get another chance if they have killed someone and could do it again. No one should get another chance if they have committed a crime worthy of the death penalty. They should not get another chance because everyone is taught right from wrong and in John Steinbeck 's book Of Mice and Men Lennie Knew what he did was wrong and that is why he went to the creek where George told him to go if he ever got in trouble like he had before and he would again. George is justified in killing Lennie because he knew Lennie kill again and would never get better and their dream would never come true, it was a mercy killing and was the best thing for Lennie at that moment, and George knew Lennie would keep making the same mistakes and eventually would make one that even he could not forgive him for. That is why George is justified.
“There is no flag large enough to cover the shame of killing innocent people”-Howard Zinn, if a person is innocent, there is no reason for them to die. However, if the person does something really bad, or attacks you, you have every right to kill them. Therefore, in the book, Lennie kills Curley’s wife, so George kills Lennie. (John Steinbeck, Of Mice and Men) George should not be punished for killing Lennie. George realized Lennie would never get better and the dream would never come true.
