“Kill the beast! Cut his throat! Spill his blood!”(152) This quote show the pure violence that ran though the boy’s blood, without second thought they jumped to kill Simon. This fear of the beast and what it truly was, was what lead them to brutally kill Simon. They were afraid of something they that was altogether foreign to them, the way it looked, what it ate, and how it acted.
When George isn’t there to help him, things can go terribly wrong. One night when all of the men went out, Lennie was left at the ranch. When the boss’s daughter-in-law came to visit Lennie accidentally killed the woman. After he realizes she is dead, he instantly knows he did something wrong and that George will be angry with him. Lennie becomes confused and doesn’t know where to go or what to do.
Spill the blood!” (174,175) Reasoning: No civil person would repeatedly state this phrase. This definitely represents savagery. It shows how bloodthirsty these boys are and then when they recite this while murdering Simon; it makes it even more gruesome. They’re so consumed in all the blood that they don’t even realize they had killed Simon until it is too late. • “Ralph wept for the end of innocence, the darkness of man’s heart, and the fall through the air of the true, wise friend called Piggy.” (235) Reasoning: This quote that was stated at the end of the book shows the reader and myself that the world of savagery only leads to murder and sorrow.
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.
Fear of the unknown can be a strong driving factor because it is unanswered. The boy’s lives revolve around fear and violence as it is all they think and care about: “Kill the beast! Cut his throat! Spill his blood! Do him in!” (Golding 141).
Unfortunately, the other three keep a straw in the game for Paul which ends up being the fateful short straw and Paul is murdered and eaten in spite of his protest. This essay will argue that regardless of the difficult circumstances that befell the spelunkers, humans rights were violated, when acting against their morals, they committed murder and cannibalized a friend and the resulting punishment upon their rescue was warranted. The spelunkers' predicament put them in very challenging circumstances to be sure but not severe enough to warrant their criminal behavior. Although, certainly scared the men were not entirely without food and water as they had four Powerbars and access to a small source of "trickling" water. Ultimately rescue happens after 4 1/2 weeks of isolation, though strangely the decision by three of the men to draw straws to see who will be "sacrificed" occurs at just one week into the ordeal.
If the creations are indeed “more human, than human” what defines our humanity? The replicants are portrayed as the violent antagonist only once compared to the humans (Tyrell) do they become admirable. While the death of Tyrell confronts the audience the close up on Roy's face shows the agony he is in. He doesn’t enjoy the killing but believes that his father must pay for his sins, pay for all the pain he has cause to him and his friends. Such violence is really only the cause of Roy’s pain, his emotions controlling his actions conflicts with our prejudice.
When Julian slowly found out about Frank’s crimes, he thinks that Frank should not be arrested because he is the war hero. Therefore, he abuses his power by putting family loyalty comes before justice and duty. David is also given permission by Wes to get the gun to shoot a coyote but instead he took his power of having a gun for granted and accidentally shot a magpie who was in no
. . If ever you disturb our streets again, your lives shall pay the forfeit of the peace”(1.1.92-99). This quote can be seen as foreshadowing because even though the prince warned them they still fought anyway and eventually most of their lives ended in great tragedy. The feud between the two families played a huge part of the deaths of the two lovers.
Both people put their life in danger, be it from themselves or guards looking for them; the difference is how they handle it. Macbeth, in the end, cracks and is killed while Philippe triumphs and is a hero. They both learned the same lesson though, that good always triumphs over evil. In both stories good triumphed over evil. Macbeth ended up dying from the results of his tragic flaw, ambition, and Philippe ended up becoming a hero for helping the two lovers.
