By refusing to give up his name, he redeemed himself for his earlier failure and died with Pride. Various characters based their actions on the desire to protect their name. Rebecca Nurse and Martha Corey also hanged because they did not confess. Pride caused important men in the community to hide information, and convince the convicted not
But when he hears of his family’s murder he feels responsible “I cannot remember such things were that precious to me….. Sinful Macduff, they were all struck for thee” (4.3, 264-267). Macduff’s loyalty blinded him to the danger that both him and his family were in. This quote shows that Macduff although was careful who he gave his loyalty to, he waited to long to act upon his suspicions that Macbeth was truly a murder and that cost him his family. Macduff’s courage and loyalty ended up costing him the ultimate price his loved
“A Good Man is Hard to Find” In O’Connor’s short story, “A Good Man is Hard to Find,” there are a couple of themes that can be pointed out. The gist of the story is how the actions of a grandmother get her and her family killed. From the events in the story I garnered that violence cause’s change. Violence is never a good thing, but in this story it serves a purpose, in terms of the grandmother. It gets her to see how hateful her prejudice is towards others; not until her family is killed is she able to make a connection with someone else and accept GOD’s grace.
His crew had abandoned him on the island and let him die to the Indians. Now would he have been worth defending, I would have defended him because he was a noble captain, had firm discipline but was not cruel, and he died fighting till his last breath for his beliefs. Although he lost sight of his mission and by doing so, put his whole crew in danger.
In the article I see a killer die the reporter wanted us to be in favour of Harris when he wrote “We had heard he had broken down and cried to a guard shortly before he was tied to the chair with leather straps” This makes the reader feel as if Harris was remorseful towards the victims families. The reporter wants us to feel hatred towards the murderer Robert Alton Harris. He wrote “Robert Harris winked at the guard” This makes the reader feel anger and hatred towards robert because he hasn’t shown any sympathy or made any apologetic actions towards the victims parents. For me the article ‘I See A Killer Die’ tries to perceive Robert Harris to be a good guy who made a bad mistake. I think this because the reporter said “ He was trying to deny his victims families to watch him suffer like his victims suffered.” This makes the reader get the impression that he was utterly ashamed of what he has done and he regrets his actions deeply.
My Response: The man knew what had happened to Susie but he still continued to give them hope that it may not necessarily be true to keep the family optimistic. Giving such devastating news to Susie's parents would put them in some major turmoil. Page 26 "He wore his innocence like a comfortable old coat." My Response: Mr. Harvey had killed and gotten away with so many murders that he starts to believe his own innocence. I thought it was extremely disturbing how some people can be like Mr. Harvey.
While Rachel’s desire for justice stems from her morals and belief in the legal system, the other character’s thirst for justice derives from a longing to fulfill vengeance for a past wrongdoing that was done to them. As a child, Bruce Wayne first handedly saw his parent’s murder and in a way his fear of bats was the cause of it. Growing up as an orphan leaves Bruce scarred or rather empty in a sense. He is empty because the only thing that would make him whole once again is his parent’s murderer is brought to justice; though he would much rather see the man’s life ended. Eventually the man is assassinated upon his release just as the young Mr. Wayne was about to bring about his revenge.
By law, he was a sinner and might be sentenced to death. But on moral side, he deserved to be sympathized and forgiven. He was as feeble as each of us. What made him do those were people the society where he lived. And it could be said that no one had the right to judge him except God.
However, let’s think another way when your child is killed, could you forgive the murderer? This is really a hard question for anyone to answer ‘yes’. That is because you are human, you are not God, and you couldn’t give your child’s life away to save another. However, in case the murderer is redeemed, how should this happen? ‘Dead Man Walking’ tells us about an inmate who has tried himself to find redemption from his victim’s families and in God’s love.
Salem, Massachusetts in the late 17th century was full of hysteria about witches casting spells, spirits being conjured, and the devil influencing the townspeople. Accusations of witchcraft, for personal vengeance, hurled fellow citizens into jail for eventual execution. The greedy were taking neighbors land once their innocent blood was spilled for crimes of witchery. John Proctor disliked the court’s lack of justice, and thought that the spreaders of the lies only did it to get what they wanted. All he wanted was for fair trials to be conducted and evidence to be looked for, because he was a very just individual and when a debate of who had authority he said “we vote by name in this society, not by acreage” (1.
