Now it’s ironic how they were great friends and companions towards each other, however Macbeth is the one who ultimately kills Banquo without even laying a finger on him. Macbeth’s guilt from Duncan’s murder carried on in Macbeth’s life, as he was too scared to fight off this darkness. Now Macbeth was faced with a decision whether or not to murder Banquo to keep his royal prophecies true. With the help of his gang, the decision was clear enough for him not to pass. Instead of Macbeth directly killing Banquo, Macbeth hired his gang members to act out this murder.
Therefore, the storyline’s progression supports Karl’s ability to grow and learn as a human being. Even as a man with a disability, he knows the difference between good and evil. In a twisted way, Karl redeemed himself from killing his mother, because there was no justice to killing her; meaning she was innocent. With Doyle, Karl killed a man for being abusive, a terrible role model, and for having an issue with people who are different. Compare to when he was 12, Karl knew what he was doing when he killed Doyle, he did not flee the scene of the crime because we know he called the police on
George knew he had to kill Lennie himself because if he did not, Lennie would be locked up, or more likely, Curley would have killed him. Curley clearly states that he was going to shoot Lennie in the guts so that he died slowly and painfully and George knew that Lennie did not deserve that. He knew that the best thing he could do for Lennie at that point was to find him first and spare him that miserable fate. By doing that George proved he loved Lennie and that he knew what was right for him. He spared Lennie from dying scared and tortured.
And were they justifiable at all? In my opinion George’s actions at the end of the novel of killing Lennie were justifiable because even though it was a hard decision between the three choices he could have made, he weighted all his options and did what he thought was the best option for him and the most humane for Lennie. So the main question we ask is why did he kill Lennie and was it justifiable? The thing is George would not have been able to live with himself if he didn’t kill Lennie himself. George also did everything he could to kill Lennie in the most humane way possible.
George is trying to protect Lennie from getting into caught by others when he does something wrong. George would rather him get away from the madness because he generously cares and doesn't want anyone to hurt him. He did this because most probably didn’t understand Lennie's mental problem and Lennie sometimes didn’t realize when enough was enough; like when he played in Curley’s wife's hair and when he touched the girl’s dress back in Weed. Later on in the book Lennie accidentally kills Curley’s wife by snapping her neck. When George later found out he came up with a plan to get him away and told Curley about it.
However Candy later regrets letting Carlson shoot his dog for him as he says ….. “I shouldn’t ought to of let no stranger shoot my dog”- The shooting of the dog foreshadows the death of lennie. Candy’s final comment about the dog truly influences George’s decision to kill Lennie. Later George will shoot Lennie to spare him from the unbridled violence of candy. For both, death is to be seen as a merciful release.
The road mender says, “ Tall as a spectre” that quote gave away Gaspard’s life. The road mender thought he was doing a good thing but giving out a generalization, but the Marquis knew who it was. The action that the Jacques took with respect to Darnay was to kill his uncle. Another thing that was horrible that did was that they took Gabelle into imprisonment. The Jacques thought it would make Charles Darnay’s life a lot more better to be able to live his life without the over bearing shadow of someone trying to kill him.
In that moment he knew he had to shoot Lennie, George thought about when Candy’s dog had to die, how Carlson shot him, and not Candy himself. George knew he had to kill Lennie himself because of that experience. When Carlson shot Candy’s dog George could see the pain in Candy’s face. George didn’t want to experience that pain for himself. Yet he was forced into the same position.
She may have felt guilty as she thought the norms would find out that she killed the man and then they would kill her. David and Petra are the ringleaders in the escape. “If we were to survive, we must keep our true self hidden…” When Petra was drowning, David and Rosalind heard her cries through their minds, which then made them fear more, as people were being suspicious as no-one else heard her. Then they had to fear Petra, as they realized her powers were much too strong for her and she was too young to fully understand it.
The opportunity to beat fate was too good to pass up. It did not help that his wife felt the same way as well. She facilitated the murder and assured her husband that it was what needed to be done. After Macbeth killed the king, he found himself no longer a true and loyal soldier, on the inside that is. He made sure to put on a façade which would lead the King’s men to believe he was still a respectful and loyal man.
