The danger that unsuspecting women and children would undergo would be too much for a man to worry about. “Abruptly I stopped short” and he says that his first instinct was that “[he] would go [his]” way ( ). He soon knew that was not an option and that he must kill this living creature. As the battle began, the snake “held his ground” while the man left for a short while, only to go to the “ranch house, get a hoe, and [return] ( ). The diction is written very well to point out what the man is feeling and helps the reader to infer just what the snake was emoting as
This short story has the theme of Duality. Like in Stevenson’s classic tale, Mr. Hyde relates to Allal as they are both being shunned by society and getting to know this fact everyday is something that Allal feels. Jekyll expressed his inner feeling through Hyde as Allal expressed his bloodthirsty characteristics through the snake. “He went to work of his own accord” (1), he had to make an agreement to himself to ignore the people who insulted just to get through the day. “Meskhot – damned” (1).
* When Zaroff says “Surely your experiences in the war—,” Rainsford does not even let him finish before saying “Did not make me condone cold-blooded murder.” * He continues to say “Thank you, I’m a hunter, not a murderer.” * Zaroff talks constantly about his hunts and how they bored him overtime. His ability to hunt humans turned him into the monster that he is. He is a lot like Rainsford in the beginning in having no remorse for the animals he hunts, including humans. Which is exactly why he is not like Rainsford in the end. Zaroff never had the chance to be the hunted and therefore does not know the definition of fear.

Huck was a young boy and did not have as much intelligence as you or I do. While Jim and Huck were living on Jackson Island, Huck thought that it would be funny to put a dead rattle snake in Jim’s blanket. He did this because Jim told him that the worst luck you could have would be to touch a snakeskin with your bare hands. When Jim got into his blanket, the rattlesnake’s mate was next to it and bit Jim in the heel. Huck says, “I wouldn’t ever take a-holt of a snakeskin again with my hands, now that I see what had come of it” (59.)
With ethical judgement, the narrator must be held accountable for he is not insane, but instead a severely morally corrupted murderer. As the policemen become comfortable in his home, the narrator begins to feel extremely pale, his head begins to ache and he hears the sound of the old man’s (arguably) heart beat. The beating heart becomes so loud and paranoid that the narrator confesses “tear up the planks! – Here, here! – it is the beating of his hideous heart” confirming his impounding guilt and the probability of his committing the murder “at the elbow” of the policemen is highly

In chapter one, Jack hesitates to stab and kill a piglet because he has never killed anything, and the barbaric act of cutting into a living creature was too overwhelming. Not only does Jack see this as a personal weakness, but he also is embarrassed by his hesitation and says “I was choosing a place.” His explanation that he was looking for a place to stab the piglet was false and everyone knew it was the unbearable blood stopping Jack from killing the creature; however, he vows that next time the pig won't get away. This vow opens the door to the savagery that will overtake him and many of the boys who want to satisfy their primal impulses. Clearly Jack does not start off as a monster, and he still remains in touch with civilization. Although, as the novel continues, Jack's trajectory gradually moves away from the formal, civilized way of life and steadily toward murder and brutality.
When the younger boys talk in fear about the snake they saw, Jack says “there isn’t a snake thing and if there was a snake, we would hunt it and kill it”. (Page 35) This shows that Jack is preoccupied with hunting and exemplifies his desire for violence and brutality. Many bullies use violence and brutality to physically over power their victims. The ``bully`` archetypical character has a powerful role in the novel, mostly because of the characterization of Jack. The `` leader`` role is just as widely recognized as the ``bully`` role.
