He didn’t want to lose his title as the best barber in town. The barber was a coward because if he had slaughtered Torres, then he would have saved the lives of many while only taking one. Torres was a man who killed a group of people called ‘rebels’ because of their beliefs of their culture. The barber would have only had to dispatch the Captain to set the lives of all the other rebels free. Take one look at another murderous fiend, Hitler.
As the rioter stated that they are brothers that would defend each other, their intentions were nothing but good. They portray themselves as three men who truly care for one another, and who want to accomplish something good. Later in the same dialogue, the rioter says, “And we will kill this traitor Death, I say!/Away with him as he has made away/With all our friends,” (96-98). Chaucer now emphasizes how the rioters intend on avenging the deaths of their friends, by killing “Death” himself. Chaucer points this out in order to allow readers to understand that the rioters did have good intentions to begin with.
So together, with the exception of George who left moments before, they set out in search of “their killer”. There is no question that their only motive was to kill him without a trial. My reason for this came right out of Candy’s conversation with George at the first murder scene. He said that “Curley gon’ta wanta get ‘im lynched. Curley’ll get ‘im killed.” Then George replied that Curley’s statement was right and that the other guys would go along with it.
Brutus did as he promised by killing himself with the very dagger he had used to kill Caesar. Even though he saved his people, some people were not fond of Brutus. Furthermore, Brutus was very sympathetic and honorable. Brutus’ honor can be observed from when he told the conspirators that they must not be butchers and that they should “slice as a meal fit for the
Bateman kills people for his own satisfaction, the nameless narrator does it because of his urge to get rid of an eye. Similarities Patrick Bateman and the nameless narrator both feel the judgement or "the eye" of the antagonist. This force them to do very drastic actions in order to control their psychological problems. The main character in American Psycho appears very normal to the public. This is getting clarified in the beginning of the movie, while doing his morning routine, this goes through his mind: "There is an idea of a Patrick Bateman; some kind of abstraction.
It is clear to all readers that Macbeth is not simply going to wait for these prophecies to come true, after the previous king Duncan is murdered. This is only the first life lost because of Macbeth’s treachery, obviously it does not stop there Macbeth kills everyone he fears including his best friend Banquo and Macduff’s family. Though Macbeth’s
When he killed Banquo he only committed homicide. I think he felt different feeling towards killing both of them because the king was his cousin and Banquo was his bestfriend, although he physically didn’t kill Banquo because he didn’t want to get his hands dirty and wanted to be free of suspicion, shows how much of a coward Macbeth is. I think the only reason Banquo’s murder was worse than King Duncan was that because he targeted Banquo and his Fleance for nothing, also he was his best friend therefore he had become totally ruthless and to him life is now
Throughout Othello Desdemona feels guilt about ''losing'' the handkerchief. However, she is glad that her ''... noble Moor/ Is true of mind and made of no such baseness/ As jealous creatures are'' but this idea is juxtaposed, ''How shall I murder him, Iago'' expresses that he isn't the ''noble...hero'' we perceived him to be from his ''respectful'' appearance at the beginning. ''My parts, my title, and my perfect soul/ Shall manifest me rightly'' irony is portrayed as he murders two people that were
Although he generally shows a happy face, he feels guilty over the deaths of his wife and daughter as well as a determination to kill red John, the serial killer that murdered them. His motivation in joining the CBI is to find Red John. The pilot of the show is where Patrick Jane is developed; the CBI (California Bureau of investigation) is investigating leads on murder, which this time is a young girl. A very important technique for Patrick Jane is to get a “feel” for the victim’s surroundings and in turn close ones. It is then as he typically does by going into the house and spying details so he gains the trust of these people in order for them to make slip up or subconsciously suspect someone else.
Hamlet kills Polonius behind the tapestry because he suspects that it might be Claudius, but when he unveils the body and discovers that it is Polonius, he shows no sign of guilt at all. He acts like he is “convinced that he is the complete master of an obviously unhealthy situation” (Prosser Pg. 125). A person who wants nothing more but justice for the death of a loved one would feel bad for killing an innocent person during the process, but that is not the case with Hamlet. He shows no sign of guilt or remorse towards the death of Polonius, because he is clearly past the point of justice and is seeking revenge.
