In this state which described as a doctor on stand within the trial declared Carl Lee as insane. This doctor was not found credible due to his own past events and actions but it does not discredit his doctor’s degree or his diagnosis. Carl Lee did murder two men but as he did this, he did not let the men suffer. He killed them quickly and painlessly. This in comparison to what they did to Carl Lee’s daughter, Tonya, which was torture, was in no way the same.
Not only does this portray the violent potential of honor, it also signifies the ignorance behind the motives of honor. The notion that the brothers made no attempt to conceal the murder and instead, committing it “openly”, signifies that they genuinely believed their act was justified. Marquez uses repetition in “Before God and before men” to emphasize the hypocrisy of honor depicted by the brothers pleading innocence for murder in the presence of “God” and “men”. This image is particularly ironic as murder is an atrocity forbidden by religion; the contradiction between this and the brothers’ belief that they are innocent “before God” indicates the double standard of honor. All charges against the brothers are eventually acquitted on the basis that the
They didn't know Lenny didn't try to harm George at all, or that Lennie died a fast, tranquil death. If there was another option, I'm sure George wouldn't have killed Lennie. However; In the end Curly would have lynched Lennie as punishment for the murder of his wife. Only George could look past Lennie's tragic mistakes, sadly this time George was not able to control the situation. Besides, George knew that Lennie would not understand the reasoning behind Curley lynching him, he could have gone crazy and killed the whole ranch staff.
Perhaps this is why he killed his father. He may have blamed his father for the condemnation. Since he could not know whether or not Jesus raised the dead he chose nihilism. His whole life became one of cruelty. Since his life didn’t matter—neither did anyone else’s.
He taught the small town that people must do the right thing even when nobody is watching and they must follow what they know is right no matter who it is or what they tell you. In this case Inman knew the preacher was a hypocrite, so he took care of the issue. There were many signs that told him he shouldn’t intervene but Inman was strong willed and knew the right thing to do. He also walked away in the dead of night knowing the town wouldn’t know his name or who helped them, and because of that he won’t be remembered by his name but by his actions. What he did sent a bigger message; you shouldn’t have to receive acclamation for an act in order to do the right thing, rather you should do the right thing all the time, every time, even if nobody is around to see it.
To the man, he was doing justice. Some delinquent hit his wife for no reason and so he killed the man. To the judge, that is not “acceptable” behaviour and the fact that some other man hit his wife does not justify his murder. 2. The world’s view of truth and God’s view of truth, to me, are somewhat similar.
Macbeth can’t be fully blamed for all of the murders as he didn’t personally commit the crimes he got other people to do them for him. This shows that he is not a butcher because although he arranged the murders of Banquo, Lady Macduff and her sons, he didn’t actually carry them out. A butcher would have got great joy out of brutally killing these innocent people. Although some may argue that these murders were unnecessary to the play, they were important to Macbeth’s character as he wanted to get rid of anybody who was seen as a potential threat to his crown. It can be argued that Lady Macbeth is the true butcher; she is the person who persuades Macbeth to kill Duncan.
Just because a guilty man has turned himself in for a murder does not mean that the family will achieve closure in knowing they have found and charged the man responsible for their loss. There is no relief in the knowledge and certainty of the information. There is still pain, there is still loss, there is still love, and definitely no closure. Coyle makes his opinion clear throughout the entire article and even uses quotes from
Although the bird's death cannot be compared to murder, in the eyes of the Mariner's shipmates, he committed a sin. Since the Mariner killed the bird, it would be logical for him to suffer. However, this is not why the Mariner goes about the journey alone. Although he is not aware, the Mariner is the chosen one. This is similar to those that feel they were chosen by God to minister for Him.
C. Set Up/Evidence: “Collins chooses to aid the wounded officer knowing he would get no recognition.” (Shaw) D. Tie-In: This shows iron because Collins wanted to think of himself as a hero by doing something heroic like helping the officer but in the end no one found about his good deed. E. Tie-In/Transition: In the short story… Claim: “A Mystery of Heroism” dialogue is used to show interaction between the characters in the story. A. Set Up/Evidence: “Thunder, I wish I had a drink. Ain’t there any water round here?” (Crane) B. Tie-In: This quote is a quote that Collins said in the beginning of the story.
