Admittedly, as sympathetic and understanding as readers are for Lennie, Lennie is still a danger to other lives. In many instances in the book, Lennie accidentally kills many lives but does not realize the significance of his mistakes. Lennie is a man with the mind of a child with an unequal match of formidable strength, hence committing murder without meaning to do so. In the scene when Lennie kills Curley’s wife, he has the same slightly panicked reaction as when he killed the rat and puppy earlier in the book. Readers then realize that Lennie doesn’t understand the difference between killing an animal and murdering a human, therefore putting other lives at risk.
1. During which period in history did Mary Shelley write Frankenstein, and what were some of its social behavior codes that clashed with her personal life? Mary Shelley wrote Frankenstein during the Romantic period and the Victorian era in England. One thing that clashed with her personal life was she was having an affair with a married man. 2.
This is very detailed and horrific because he is saying he won’t be able to stop his soldiers from raping the women in the city. Henry’s choice of words in this speech show us that not only can Henry influence people into fighting but he can create the illusion that disturbing things will happen if you don’t do what I say. This actually isn’t the best type of leadership because he his leading with fear. It is an effective form of leadership but it is one that doesn’t always work
This book encourages me even more to pursue my dream of becoming a Police Officer. This tragedy also made clear that we shouldn’t trust anyone, because even the most inoffensive individual could be a psychopath. However, I consider that the family went through a great deal of pain. I can’t visualize my brother, any relative or even people close to me of being a murderer. I can’t imagine the pain Ted’s mother experienced, knowing that his model son was sentenced to death after being convicted of
They are just like us, but for what they have done to become a felon must have been hard for them to make a choice like that. People; don’t interact with them, because they have that view on them as being a murder. So Do you believe felons should
There is a moral difference between Shelton’s killing of his attackers and that of his other victims. Darby and Ames caused personal harm to Shelton and thus gave him the moral right to try and prevent any other future pain that could be caused by these men, but the other victims were combatants in the war that Shelton waged against the “system”. When looking at Darby and Ames, Shelton takes a more utilitarian approach when dealing with their killings. The government “system” is supposed to punish those who are wrong. But in the trial of Darby and Ames, only Ames was punished severely while Darby was allowed to go free.
Instead of Macbeth directly killing Banquo, Macbeth hired his gang members to act out this murder. By doing this, Macbeth hopes to be plagued lessen from the guilt and sorrow he awaits, and secondly it acts as insurance for Macbeth because if anyone saw the murder they would not see Macbeth thus making him innocent of the
Another example of plot in treating people equally occurs with Tom Robinson. When he is in trial for raping Mayella Ewell (which he did not really do) he wasn’t treated fairly. They convicted him just because he was a n----r. They should have listened to both sides of the story and chosen wisely and not just choose the n----r guilty. Another example of plot in treating people equally occurs with Atticus some people treat him unfairly because they think he is a n----r lover. The people that judge him have their eyes closed and need to open them and realize that he does not just support n-----s, but people just like himself too.
He wanted to be a leader in some ways, but should’ve been leaded. His corrupted mind brought him into the evils that will come when you’re fighting for a cause. So, he is a famous abolitionist because of his outrageous acts of violence, not because he had a substantial contribution to the cause of abolition. Killing five people for a cause isn’t that many when put into perspective with how many there still were afterwards. The plan to raid Harpers Ferry was a GREAT plan, but he isn’t a leader.
I have researched a few stories behind the stand your ground law and its amazing how so many people have got away with murder. People seem to be taking what they believe to be justice in their own hands. Doing something off your own opinion isn’t always the right thing to do. You may not like people who wear red shirts. Do you think they should die?
