Tom killed the man because he had violated Tom’s morals, similar to the situation which landed Tom in prison in the first place.Prompt TwoThe ending of the book did not surprise me. I was content with the end of the book, mostly because I enjoyed experiencing the novel through Tom’s journey, and although the ending is not necessarily happy, I was satisfied because of what Tom learned throughout the
When the conspirators gather at Brutus’s house at night, Cassius suggests that Mark Anthony should also die with Julius Caesar or he could carry on Caesar’s work. But Brutus disagreed and said “let us be sacrificers, but not butchers, Caius.”(II, i, 166). Brutus believes that Caesar’s death should be a sacrifice with a purpose behind it, not a mindless slaughter. Other characters in the play also realized that Brutus had no bad intentions for killing Caesar. Even though Brutus killed Antony's best friend, Antony still recognized Brutus as "the noblest
There is no cheating this, no matter who you are. In the Godfather Death, a conflict arises because he cheats death twice by flipping the bodies around so their head was at the feet of Death. The only solution to this conflict was that the doctor himself ended up giving his life for this, because once again, you cannot cheat death. As humans, we have an intimate connection with not only life, but death. People have different believes whether spiritual, scientific, or none at all.
Edie’s love and kindness towards Terry encouraged him to see life differently without death and violence. Charley’s brutal murder is the main catalyst for Terry’s transformation. Their brotherly bond was too strong and not one to be without consequences for Johnny Friendly and his mob. Terry’s attitude and behaviour at the beginning of the film was developed by Johnny Friendly and his ways of how a stable life on the docks should be, however, Terry’s realisation of Johnny’s wrong doing motivates him to follow what his conscience tells him. In the end it was not only Charley’s death but Father Barry and Edie’s moral persuasion that helped Terry find himself again, follow his own beliefs and destroy Johnny Friendly with the truth.
This indicates that he knows of how mean and irresponsible he has been, possibly reflecting the fact many people say life ‘flashes before your eyes’ at death. His change is important to the story as it gives a possible reason for the death of the heirs of Durin (Thorin’s nephews Fili and Kili) because they would have succumbed to the same sickness of the mind that catalysed this change in Thorin (which, it is implied, also affected his father and grandfather, Thrain and Thror) and also because it shows a downfall of humanity: avarice. Throughout the story Bilbo acts as a character through
Keller taught Paul 'life lessons', which was derived from his own life, plagued with suffering. Paul becomes fascinated with his past, and later discovers through Keller how hard a life he led after the death of his wife and child. Keller blamed himself for losing them, because like paul, he also had too much pride, and thought nothing would harm the family 'who played for hitler'. he was so hurt by his own arrogance that he wanted to kill himself. however, keller survives.
Through his own narrative, Darl is seen as very observant and perceptual. Through the rest of his family’s narratives, he is an outcast; the black sheep of the family. When all this comes together it creates a perfect storm so to speak, thus setting Darl up for disaster, as if he never had a chance to begin with. “In Defense of Darl’s Sanity”, the author states that, “a majority of Darl’s family doesn’t even like him”(“Defense of Darl”). I think this is because his family, especially his siblings Dewey Dell and Jewel, truly do not understand Darl’s positive intentions.

The marriage and the move were a huge threat to Caleb, for he would forever lose his soulmate. The idea was that Caleb could get Harvey interested once again in the love they shared in solving the case of the Zodiac killer, and would get Harvey to live up to their boyhood dreams by keeping the secret of the murder of the boy, and killing the girl that stood in the way of him and Harvey being a team again. Caleb went to great lengths to ensure Harvey’s loyalty. Harvey was not involved in these killings, but he was the brain child in the murder of the boy. They had cracked the case, it was a victory for the team and a real bummer for the bride to be who was at the scene of arrest when all the secrets came out.
