If that [has] not avenged me, I can do no more!" (Hawthorne 122). Chillingworth is obsessed with taking personal revenge on Dimmesdale, but lets the community revenge itself on Hester. Puritan society persuades Chillingworth into evil, making him do anything to punish the couple who have sinned. Nonetheless, the revenge takes over Chillingworth’s life describing, "…That old man's revenge [is] blacker than my sin.
Montresor is a man that has wicked mind and with his wicked mind he successfully murder Fortunato. Montresor’s cruel mind allows him to carry out a repulsive thing. He tells us why he has this twisted mind when he says: “The thousand injuries of Fortunato I had borne as I best could; but when he ventured upon insult, I vowed revenge.”(528) If we only knew why he carried out this terrible thing is true about the insult that Fortunato made calls for a murder. Montresor does not use fair methods to resolve his issue with Fortunato. He kills the man with his own wariness.
The Crime Casey leaves her car at an abandon parking lot which is towed away in three days. Casey’s mother calls police on the assumption that Casey stole the car and money; she also states that her granddaughter is missing and she has found the car and that it has an awful smell coming from the trunk. Police question Casey Anthony and she states to the police that she had not seen Caylee in 31 days and believes she was with the nanny and had not reported her daughter missing because she was frightened (CNN, 2013). The police followed up on her story and found her story to be false and Casey Anthony was charged with first-degree murder, neglect, aggravated child abuse and then four counts of lying to police officials in October
In Kafka’s short story “In The Penal Colony”, The Officer is the judge of the colony and punishes men who may or may not be considered guilty by more humane men. He takes the ultimate sacrifice in the end when he realizes that he is the one who should be punished and he uses the machine—that he used to worship—to kill himself. The two villains are similar in the fact that they both murder people for unjustifiable reasons, however, they differ when it comes to morals and confidence. Captain Torres kills rebels whether they did anything or not. He doe not care about their intentions as he states that all the rebels will be punished (p.443).
Furthermore, his reasons and justifications for murdering the pawn broker lead the reader to believe rather strongly that Raskolnikov is indeed a “bad” person. He had no true reason to kill Alyona Ivanovna except to see whether or not he had the guts to do it. However, he tried to justify his crime with the idea that “it wasn’t a human being [he] killed. It was a principle!” (p.274) Moreover, his Napoleonic mindset led him to believe that he was superior to both people like Alyona, whom he considered a hindrance to society, and to the average person. Therefore, according to his logic, he had the right to do as he pleased.
She knew that if her grandchildren wanted to go to the house, they would bug Bailey enough to drive by her old childhood home one more time. They traveled down the road for a good twenty minutes before she realized that they were in Georgia and she grew up in Tennessee. Her sudden realization shocked her and she jumped a little. When she did, her cat jumped on Bailey, he lost control, and they flipped the car. The mother, thrown out of the car with the little baby, had a gash on her face and a broken shoulder.
In case of an accident, anyone seeing her dead on the highway would know at once that she was a lady (Inside Literature 1192),” we can predict that an accident will happen and perhaps even death. Another part where we can anticipate something happening is when we find out that the Grandmother secretly takes Pitty Sing the cat with them, even though she knows that her son does not like to arrive at a motel with a cat. Eventually, Pitty Sing is the main cause of the car accident. The idea that in the whole state the family could run into this one particular man is completely absurd, that is why when it actually comes true it is so ironic. The first obvious
According to the story, The Cask Of Amontillado, Montresor didn’t feel remorse at the start but after he does the job he feels terrible because he thought that fortunato deserved to die until he realises, he was the one to killed him. Montresor created a whole plan to kill fortunato which shows that he never once felt like he was doing something terrible. In order to get revenge, montresor tricked fortunato and the servants. He was willing to do anything to kill fortunato. An quote that shows that montresor was trying to make fortunato feel safe and secure is “True-True,” I replied “and, indeed, I had no intention of alarming you unnecessarily;but you should use all the proper caution.
The reader is never told exactly what Fortunato has done to provoke Montresor. All the reader is told is “The thousand injuries of Fortunato I had borne as I best could, but when he ventured upon insult I vowed revenge.”(360). Montresor never expounds on what the insult was, only that it occurred and that he will take revenge. Montresor goes on to say that he “must punish with punish with impunity”, meaning that he will show no mercy on Fortunato and that the revenge will be far worse than the insult. Montresor then reveals that Fortunato has a weakness.
The theme of the story is revenge. Montresor wanted to seek revenge for the “thousands” of “injuries” Fortunato gave him. The begin lines show why Montresor wanted revenge. In an unspecific way Fortunato has given Montresor “thousands of injuries” and even “insult”. Montresor had figured out a weak spot for Fortunato.
