What made it even more ironic was how the accusers were actually those who were the truly evil ones, with ulterior motives behind their baseless accusations. These accusations were often formed from personal vengeance, jealousy or greed. One example was how Putnam found these accusations as a convenient way for him to get more land, and his own greed fueled his accusations against many of the noticeably richer members of Salem. ”And there be none but Putnam with the coin to buy so great a piece. This man is killing his neighbours for their land!” Giles Corey had stated this in court.
The sole purpose of ripping people off for their money by taking advantage of their poor economic status is immoral. This drives Rodion to develop a deep hatred for Alyona. In part I page seventy six; it provides details about the criminal hesitating with time and fear. This only proves one
His willingness to slaughter the man for so weak a reason is frightening though. It helps to show how twisted Chillingworth truly is. During the end of the novel though, Dimmesdale thwarts Chillingworth’s revenge plot by telling the Puritan community how he had an affair with Hester. This act absolutely ruins Chillingworth because he no longer possesses the power over Dimmesdale. All the horrible acts he had done in the past were undone, because Dimmesdale "Hast escaped me!"(228).
For example, Tom tells Mr. Wilson about the incident that happens with Myrtle, and that Gatsby was responsible for it. This caused Mr. Wilson to fill with anger, and lead him to kill Jay Gatsby, and commit suicide. From these two situations, we see two contrasting consequences from one similar emotion. Jay Gatsby’s jealousy motivates him to pursue his true love, while Tom’s jealousy leads to the death of multiple characters. In conclusion, it is extremely transparent that Tom is a more corrupt character compared to Jay Gatsby.
The Devil which is a parallel to money is a motif so people such that in Tom's position, will borrow money from him. The Devil has essentially converted Tom into his spawn, as he is doing the same thing the Devil once did to him. The greed and money ultimately resulted in his death, and Tom's userer subjects led the end of their lives because of the debt they had to pay. The subjects indulged in the thought of free money, easily accessible money, ruining their lives, which is what the 'Devil' quiescently did to Tom Walker. This quote portrays the greed contained in people, "He was on the point of foreclosing a mortgage, by which he would complete the ruin of an unlucky land-speculator for whom he had professed the greatest friendship."
There is a saying, “Money is the root of all evil.” This is true if the money is obtained through ill-gotten ways. What happened to Tom Walker is symbolic of what can happen to any human consumed by greed. He or she will lose their soul to the obsession. There were many important themes present in this story that relate to choices we make and the consequences that comes with it. Money and material things do not truly satisfy a person's life or make a person happy.
His vengeance actually becomes a crazed obsession that will never cease. When Chillingworth sees little Pearl in the arms of her mother, he is deeply hurt that Hester has betrayed him, but more than that, hateful towards the adulterous man. He hates the man more and more as time goes by. He makes it his primary goal to find this man and hurt him. After he discovers that the man he is looking for is Reverend Dimmesdale, he creates an evil plot to destroy him.
Harry's conviction led him to a life of remorse and disgrace, and both men felt nothing but repulsion and repentance after coming to realization with what they have done. Victor truly believed that in bringing the Creature to life, he was indeed bettering the world, as Harry assumed that through guiding Dexter into becoming a murderous vigilante he was aiding mankind. Ironically both men were utterly mistaken; all Victor's Creature truly accomplished was murdering his loved ones in anger, and terrifying the world with his appalling appearance. Dexter on the other hand might've helped mankind, but who's to say it was his right to kill all those people? One might argue "The Justice System does that exact act every day."
He arranged both murders cold bloodedly, plotting with murderers, released from prison. Macbeth killed Banquo out of jealousy; because he is "lesser than Macbeth and greater" and "not so happy, yet much happier." He kills Banquo because Banquo will father kings while he is childless. he tries to work against fate and change the part of the prophesy that does not benefit him. It is not satisfactory for him to content his own ambition.
