The act of murder can be viewed as the manifestation of an in-adherence and veering from an established societal set of laws and ethics. An analytical juxtaposition of Poe's "The Cask of Amontillado" and Faulkner's "A Rose for Emily" provides a ratiocinative interpretation of varying forms of murder, as well as posing moralistic, principled standpoints on the matter. Edgar Allan Poe is renowned for presenting murder in its fundamental sense that succeeds all aspects of the definition of the act in that it is an unlawful act that requires premeditated malice. In the instance of "The Cask of Amontillado" the premeditation is one based on revenge. Retribution becomes the honing medium for the calculated response of Montresor to Fortunato's insults.
Compare and Contrast A Rose for Emily and Trifles Both of these stories are in the same type of mystery style. They have an unpleasant but interesting sense about them. When reading A Rose for Emily, I knew there had to be something shocking in the end. The way the towns people dished the dirt about Miss Emily was interestinf. They seemed to only pay attention to her.
Irony is used in many places such as the story’s title, the setting an even in certain character’s personality traits. In addition to Jackson’s use of irony, the black box and the story’s title represent the importance of questioning irrational traditions and the unexpected nature of death. With the use of these two literary techniques, Shirley Jackson is able to highlight important dramatic events within the plot. Reading this story allowed me to better understand the importance of questioning society. If people would have questioned Hitler’s plans before he gained too much power perhaps we could have prevented the horrible mistreatment face by the
Leonard Bernstein Ms. Vowles ENG4UV-03 7 July 2014 Essay Analysis Upon reading the essay, I believe that the overall essay was very effective. The introduction of the essay was strong, and had an interesting “hook”. By asking the reader a rhetorical question, the author was able to lead into his main idea. The examples the author used were effective; Dan Brown and Stephen King have an international following for their mystery novels. However, I felt that it was irrelevant when the author said, “Although many female writers claim to be the ‘Queen of Crime Fiction”…” I believe this phrase could be eliminated.
In life there is a death, or two that occur. Death is not literal in its definition or nature, but is a state. Two stories capture this stigmatic though in whole, through character observation. “A Rose For Emily”, by William Faulkner, is a story that draws you into the characters’ trials and tribulations to instigate the assumption of death. The other story, “The Cask of Amontillado”, by Edgar Allen Poe, draws you in with a child-like mentality of revenge and hostility to shut out the erroneous belief of kindness in the man’s heart.
Final Draft The justification of murder and the “reason” for it In “Grendel” and “A Rose for Emily”, Faulkner and Gardner are trying to portray Emily’s and Grendel’s feelings by articulating them through murders they committed during the course of each works. Both characters committed these murders that were triggered by some similar and a few differentiable motives. The author from each of the works show Grendel and Emily to be very strange and lonely characters, Grendel is portrayed as an ugly terrifying monster and Emily is shown as a strange single woman in her 30’s who likes her privacy and is very ungenerous. These are few of the reason why people in each of the works started separating themselves from Grendel and Emily. I think the murders
‘The Yellow Wall-Paper’ Argues without Argument ‘The Yellow Wall-Paper’ is a complex short story told though the point of view of a sarcastic and insane protagonist, who has rapidly changing ideas about her surroundings, other characters and even her own psychological state. Because of this, readers may come to a variety of conclusions about major plot points and themes. Puzzled, readers will identify the piece as a horror story—a vivid portrayal of insanity with unsettling realism. This is indeed the conscious conclusion that Charlotte Perkins Gilman intends for her readers to form. However, the piece is so much more than a simple horror story; it is a deceptively hidden but powerful essay on female equality and marriage, two topics about which Gilman wrote frequently.
She showed her great love for her husband in another well-known poem she wrote called â€œTo My Dear and Loving Husband.â€ The first lines of this poem -â€œIf ever two were one, then surely we. If ever man were lov'd by wife, then thee,â€- make it clear that Bradstreet and her husband had a very loving marriage and that she was extremely happy (www.library.utoronto.ca). She wrote a similarly themed work about her children in poem called â€œIn Reference to My Childrenâ€ (www.ask.com). Anneâ€™s life in the colony also affected her poetry. This can be seen in her poem â€œUpon a Fit of Sickness,â€ in which she wrote about a time in which she came close to death when struck by a plague.
The cask of Amontillado is a story of murder and revenge, while Eveline is a story about dreaming of independence yet not being able to let go of old ways. In conclusion, these two stories have distinct similarities and differences. While the differences of each story are obvious, the most important aspect of these two stories is the similar fact that each offers an interesting critique on human behavior, specifically as it pertains to how we deal with old habit and also how humans desire
