The last and most obvious is Mrs. Summers being sacrificed by being stoned to death. The Cask of Amontillado by Edgar Allan Poe is another grotesque story. The first paragraph talks about Montressor’s anger and how he wants get revenge against Fortunato. Montressor lies to the intoxicated Fortunato to trick him to come down to his fault to get some Amontillado. The vault is dark and cold which gives the reader a grotesque feeling about the whole situation.

Dante’s Inferno is one of the three parts of his Divine Comedy. The Inferno is divided into thirty-four cantos, each containing a description of a specific region of hell. Sinners in each area are punished for different sins. Sinners of lust suffer in upper hell, sinners of violence in middle hell, and the sinners of fraud in the lowest part of hell. The sufferings of these people are portrayed through Dante’s eyes as he descends lower and lower into hell with Virgil, his helper.
The madness resulting from the incident was the way in which the soldiers handled this. They make jokes about Ted Lavender’s death, and act as if it was in a movie, separated from reality. Next, they burn down a town and kill all the animals still in it. While seeing something like this on the news would be disturbing, through the context of the author’s perspective we can understand why they do this. They are all afraid of dying in shame, as noted when Tim O’Brien says “They carried the soldier's greatest fear, which was the fear of blushing.
In most cases revenge turns the avenger into the avenged; acts of deception consume ones soul leaving no room for justice. Montresor seems to be avenged [because of an unnamed insult] by cleverly leading Fortunato through the catacombs to his premeditated demise. Poe’s use of dramatic irony leaves one to believe that Fortunato exacts the last revenge by burdening Montresor with a haunting guilt that Montresor carries for more than 50 years. Poe’s use of situational irony leaves the reader asking if to take revenge is to often sacrifice one self’s soul. The opening paragraph in this story loosely defines why Montresor seeks revenge and what he views as revenge.

All the possessions the victim and their family owned were confiscated. Those who failed in a suicide attempts were arrested, publicly shamed, and often sentenced to death (Crouch). This social fear and disdain for suicide lasted until the 17th and 18th centuries, when suicide began appearing in many of Shakespeare's works.

Naming Santiago declared him a dead man and the brothers' set out for revenge. As rumors raced across the town, many failed to warn Santiago of his pending death and sadly allowed the blood of a man to be spattered on the doorstep of his own home. The underlying cause of Santiago Nasar's death is the cultural ideology of machismo, the abandonment of moral sensibility, and the unjust double standard Angela and the Vicario Brothers live by. A primary factor that aids in Santiago's murder is the stringent rule of machismo. Machismo in the Vicario Brothers' minds is simply a way of life.
When in fact the case is that both Beowulf and Grendel are both creatures created from unnatural births just that they are two different sides of a spectrum. Society needs these two sides in order for them to cancel out otherwise there would be a world full of pure evil or a boring bland world were no one would step out of line. Grendel is a monster that was born of sin, he is the spawn of Cane. This is a sin because of the fact that he killed his own brother he became the creature of sin and therefore all his spawns are all creatures of sin. Though we do not get a physical description of Grendel the reader is lead to think of an ugly enormous creature due to the physical attributes that we are told of him.
