(page 234) .Misfit says that he knows that his dad died because of flu. So, he was punished wrongly. He says, “I found out the crime don’t matter. You can do one thing or you can do another, kill a man, because sooner or later you’re going to forget what it was you done and just punished for it” (page 235). Here he says that weather you kill people or take tire of car you will be punished anyway and when you will be punished you will forgot what you did and will be punished for no reason.
If Tracey did not have cerebral palsy and other disabilities would Tracy have undergone several surgeries and been in pain? It was because of her disabilities that Tracy was having surgeries and was in intense pain therefore her life was ended because of her disabilities. Robert unknowingly discriminated against his daughters health issues and the effect of that was him killing Tracy and claiming it was out of mercy. We cannot say or even think of what Robert Latimer has done is morally right or ok. If we do we are saying that anyone who murders someone else who is suffering or is in pain has right to do so.
He thinks he gets to see his family again, and that’s a sign of guilt, and betrayal to his loved ones, and for the people that have been there for him. The main point of this story, and why, or why not Peyton Farquhar should have been hanged is he showed an act of hate toward the country, and it is very ignominy (unit 4, page 52) of him to do so. This is a main concern because if you’re in another country, and you do something to hurt it then why be in the country harming other lives over someone telling you to do something that would
This was because of the guilt of murdering the man and the fear of being caught. As a result, he confesses the crime he committed. The heart of the old man is said to excite him to uncontrollable terror before he killed the old man. This made him kill the old man. This contributes in proving the insanity of the narrator.
Yes, it was this! One of his eyes resembled that of a vulture-very gradually- I made up my mind to take the life of the old man, and thus rid myself of the eye for ever.' In my opinion I think that this is a no good reason for killing a human being it's like me killing someone because they have ginger hair or freckles. The character in 'The Tell Tale Heart' had a lot of conversations throughout the story but all the conversations were to him. The disease he talked about could be split personality or even schizophrenia, which is when a person cannot relate their thoughts, or emotions to reality; this would explain why the madman talks to himself.
In one moment Romeo is full of anger and hatred for Tybalt, so he kills him. In the next moment he is full of regret with his decision. This character flaw is shown in many other instances as well. Finally, Romeo’s decisions are frequently thoughtless. If Romeo had thought through his suicide plan, he would have discovered that there was a better solution than killing himself.
In Macbeth, guilt is an important theme because it is what eventually drives Macbeth and his wife mad. Shakespeare uses the image of blood as a symbol of guilt and wrongdoing, and it appears, mostly in their minds, when the characters are experiencing feelings of remorse or guilt. After Duncan’s murder, Lady Macbeth seems sure that ‘A little water clears us of this deed’. However, she sees blood on her hands, symbolic of guilt, throughout the rest of the play that she cannot clean off, no matter how much water she uses. Macbeth is visited by the ghost of Banquo, who he murdered to protect his secret.
Macbeth showcases a lot of guilt to change the tone and atmosphere of the scene and to show how guilt affects religion and beliefs. For example in Act 2 Scene, after Macbeth has killed King Duncan, the audience finds him struggling with the guilt he feels. Shakespeare shows Macbeths guilt through his inability to say ‘Amen’ which would have previously come easily from him. But after killing Duncan Macbeth believes God has turned his back on him because he committed the biggest sin- Regicide- and have gone against the divine right of kings and so would no longer be under the protection of God. Furthermore, in his mini-soliloquy in Act 3 Scene 1 Macbeths says the murder of King Duncan “put rancours in the vessel of my peace”.
The cream of British manhood was shattered in less than 6 hours.” This suggests that he wanted Haig to be punished due to his loss of so many of his own men, but also due to his own resentment towards him. Letters from the home front were censored letters soldiers could not express their true feelings about the war and the generals, however the soldier in source B2 could be honest as he was writing in his diary, and these are his
While some people began an angry man hunt for the killer, others simply wept for their lost President. For with the loss of President Lincoln hope too was lost for many people. James D. Gay wrote several poems and short stories, most of which were about President Lincoln and the Civil War. From his writings you can easily tell he was pro Union and loved his President. In this particular poem Gay writes the death was “a fearful shock!” and that “The stores were closed, our flag was draped, Our hearts felt sick and sore..” He is clearly mourning the death of one of his country’s greatest leaders along with the rest of the America.
