He refused to lose her to someone with more money (a hotshot as he called him) as he also took it hard when he was forced to purposely lose his title match. Last but not least, Jake LaMotta reaches his panic point quite quickly. He's a self destructive person above all.

This caused the cicones to retaliate and start a fight with Odysseus and his men. I think this can be a good judgement of Odysseus’s character as if he was an effective leader he would not have got into this situation, but he did and then he also loses the battle causing Odysseus to lose thirty-two of his men. I think this is a clear example of poor leadership as it was not the only possible outcome and certainly not the best, therefore showing in this case Odysseus was an unsuccessful leader. Although Odysseus did show that he can be an effective leader with the encounter of the lotus-eaters, this is where I felt Odysseus was most pro-active and effective as he didn’t lose any of his men even though three of them were drugged. His tactics were much improved as he had the presence of mind to only send three men to investigate the island and then to force those three men back of the island after they had eaten the lotus flowers that put them in a forgetful mood.
Social background, personalities and beliefs influence the way individuals think. The 3rd Juror was a vengeful and aggressive man who is the last juror to change his vote to not guilty. At the end of ACT I, when he yells angrily at the 8th Juror ‘I’ll kill him, I’ll kill him’, the 8th Juror says ‘you don’t really mean you’ll kill me, do you?’ This conflict contributes to a major turning point because it brings closer to a unanimous ‘just verdict’ as other jurors learnt about flaws from strongly prejudiced people, like the 3rd juror. He contradicts himself by saying ‘Anybody says a thing like that…they mean it’ earlier in ACT 1 because he struggles to detach his personal feelings from the boy as he sees his own estranged son in the 16 years old defendant. Furthermore, the 10th Juror’s angry monologue at the end of ACT II, he demonizes people who are ‘different’.
There is actually no reason for Curley to just come up to Lennie to start a fight is unlikely but maybe Curley thought of Lennie as a threat to him or his wife. Steinbeck uses a wide variety of ways to build up tension in the atmosphere. Profane language is commonly used throughout the book such as, ‘You God damn punk’ or ‘Come on, you big bastard’ or even ‘No son-of-a-bitch is gonna laugh at me’. At this utterance, he unleashes his fury upon Lennie, beating him mercilessly. His words perfectly encompass the cruelty that he treats him with, and show just how Steinbeck uses dialogue to display human cruelty.
Later on, the ‘skinheads’ catch up to Hubert and Said and beat them up; this is the moment of reckoning and Vinz arrives to find that he is not as cold-blooded or tough as he originally thought. He cannot kill the ‘skinhead,’ and killing people is not as cool as it seemed (he practiced being a gangster in the mirror in the beginning of the movie). It seems that he has finally learned his lesson when he gives the gun to Hubert, but as we seen, the train has already started rolling, and there is no way to stop it. The posturing and violence that we saw before, while intense and real, were never as definitive as that
The mind of Alexander the Great is an enigma. For a man that shows such compassion for his troops and the men and women of Macedon, he shows a relentless hatred for his enemies. He seems at times, so blinded by his victory that he has no thoughts of the destruction that he causes. It is difficult to comprehend that his love for one of his family or friends can so quickly turn to hate that he would have them executed without even thinking. Another puzzling aspect of his personality was that he was absolutely obsessed with conquering other nations that he would be able to leave his home for over eleven years to attempt to achieve his goal of total world rule.

Outward appearances are deceiving in this novel because the real monster is not in physical form. By trying to create life artificially and destroy death itself, Victor rises against natural laws; which have been ruling the world for millions of years and continues to til this day.

But that soon changes when the physical attributes of his creation is in monster form. He then becomes afraid of the monster and treats him as an outcast like the rest of community does.
The narrator in “The Tell-Tale Heart” is totally unreliable. We are questioning his sanity from the very beginning of the story. He goes out of his way to make us believe he is not mad while he is telling the story, and tells us about going out of his way to make sure others believe in his sanity. Another thing he does to make us question his sanity and reliability is that he claims to hear things a normal person would not be able to hear. And he kills an old man for no other reason than because his eye makes “his blood run cold”.
