Montresor completes killing Fortunato with his intelligence, loyalty, and relentlessness of what Fortunato did to him. “The Cask of Amontillado” is about Montresor killing Fortunato, because he insulted him. Also how he did it. Fortunato has no clue that Montresor is going to put him in the wall alive. What pushed Montresor so hard to kill
Today, I will analyze the reason behind hamlet’s murder of Polonius. There are three possible explanations for his actions. We can say that Hamlet murders Polonius because he is simply deranged, because he tries to feign his madness, or maybe he is just so self absorbed that he does not know himself anymore. We can clearly see that Hamlet is deranged based on what he says to his mother. Before the murder of Polonius, Hamlet and Gertrude were having an argument, Hamlet says he will set a mirror up in front of her, then slice her open so that she can see her own internal organs.
Lewis couldn’t have taken both the shots himself, it would either leave him incapacitated or he was assassinated purposefully. The medical examiner said since the bullets got lodged into his head he had to be shot from a far distance. Pricilla Grinders statements weren’t adding up, every time she was questioned about what happened that night she had a different story. After Lewis’s death, Pricilla Grinders husband, Robert Grinder had a great amount of money. When Lewis was known to carry money on him.
In this story, we observe how a character with such power and intelligence easily turns into a mad man who has devised a plan to murder an innocent man over a plebian conflict the two experienced. In one statement, Montresor says, “I must not only punish but punish with impunity” (Poe 1). In short, Montresor is implying that killing Fortunato is the fair thing to do and that he should be exempt from punishment for doing so. If I were to kill a classmate because he insulted me, I wouldn’t be exempt from punishment. Poe shows us that we can’t hold back our strange and uncivilized urges to get revenge on those who dishonor or hurt us.
No one deserves to die, and no one deserves death. Some executions are justified, but David Herold’s was not. Herold was a skilled and talented man who was deprived into a corner to help a killer. James L. Swanson’s novel, Chasing Lincoln 's Killer, a diary entry, “Last Diary Entry of John Wilkes Booth,” and an article, “Lincoln Writ of Liberty” contain evidence that proves Herold’s innocence. Herold did help a murderer; however, he is like everyone, in that he is susceptible to violent threats.
One who would read the story would tell you that the whole thing is about revenge and it can be looked at as revenge twists the mind of a person who is vengeful, to begin with, or as revenge is a driving force behind a person going so far as to commit a murder. Such a person might be so obsessed with vengeance that he imagines reasons to obtain it are the right doing. In this story, Montresor 's family prides itself on leaving no insult unavenged. Montresor 's obsession with this has perhaps made him imagine that Fortunato has insulted his family just so that he, Montresor, has something to try his family 's pride on. As when the narrator says ‘’THE thousand injuries of
A final example of Oedipus’s short temper is when he argues with Creon about being the killer of Laius. The argument heats up and Oedipus loses his temper and threatens to banish or kill Creon. Creon goes to Jocasta and states, “Sister, Oedipus your husband, thinks he has the right to do terrible wrongs-he has but to choose between two terrors: banishing or killing me” (Sophocles 448). Again, Oedipus must defeat those who seem to be against him even though they are not his enemy. It is his anger that causes Oedipus to lash out and act
At first, Antony is full of grief and express some anger at how every great accomplishment Caesar had ended so terribly, in a pool of his own blood. However, when Cassius reminds Antony that they had done it for a good reason Antony responds, “Pardon me, Caius Cassius. / The enemies of Caesar shall say this; / Then, in a friend, it is cold modesty” (III.i.232-234). This is Antony’s attempt to mend the idea that he might have been against the conspirators for if they knew his true intent at that moment they most likely would have stabbed him too. Being a surprisingly clever man, Antony agrees to everything the conspirators say and ends up being exactly as Brutus had guessed.
You can 't just sit there knowing that someone you know is going to be murdered and not do anything about it, you would have that on your mind. I don 't believe Jay 's story at all, he is a sketchy person who can 't make his mind up about certain things. He keeps changing details in his stories, and his alibi doesn’t seem right to me. Jay keeps going back and forth on his word and how things actually happened. He doesn’t seem trustworthy to me.
The story is being told fifty years after it occurred. This story is being told either so Montressor can brag about the heinous way in which he killed Fortunato or so he can finally confess to his sins. I personally believe that the auditor is bragging about what he did. The way he still sounds scorned about what Fortunato did to him leads me to believe that recounting his story is like a guilty pleasure to him. 3.
“The Cask of Amontillado” by Edgar Allan Poe is what is considered the best short story ever written, showing the true nature of the human being. Poe captures the reality of the aggression that one can suppress through this dark story expressing the secret hate between two characters. “The Cask of Amontillado” shows emotions that almost all the readers can relate to in one way or another, and that everyone has a breaking point in which they cannot take any more abuse or neglect. The main character “Montresor” has an old friend by the name of “Fortunato” who has caused Montresor many injuries and has even gone to the length of insulting him.
NWA (National Wrestling Alliance) is one of the most watched programs on television where people are ripping at each other to compete for money. People around the world seem to enjoy violence. Writer’s use violence in their pieces to draw outsiders in because there is a common interest, which is violence in this case. The principal characters in the short story’s “Thank you, M’am”, “Harrison Bergeron”, and “The Cask of Amontillado” show a universal flaw. Violence is common in the personalities of the leading characters in these short stories.
Luring an unsuspecting rival into the deep catacombs of the Montresor family and eventually resulting in an inhuman death, Edgar Allan Poe’s “The Cask of Amontillado” stands out from contemporary “mystery” in that instead of leaving the reader asking “who” and “how,” The Cask of Amontillado spurs the relevant question “why” (Baraban 47). Composed in 1846 shortly after Poe rose to fame due to a complexly written poem,: “Poe envied the success of lesser writers and entangled himself in bitter battles with these rivals, which lead to his banishment from the New York and New England literary circles” (Poe 390). Throughout the narrative discussion between Montresor and Fortunato indicate the wealthy aristocratic lineage of Montresor’s family, however
