The old man puts the dog out of its misery and curses at Judson. Later they begin to have a mysterious problem with the cow: her milk is disappearing during the night. The old man waits up one night and sees something amazing – a deadly poisonous black mamba snake is visiting the cow and drinking milk from her udders! After making sure that this goes on every night, he tells Judson that a small boy is stealing the milk and that Judson should hide beside the cow and catch him in the act. Judson does this and is of course bitten by the snake.
After that Lennie is killed, shattering all hopes and dreams George had, as well as ending a long term relationship. ‘why’n’t you shoot him, Candy?’, during the 1930’s America was going through ‘The Great Depression’ everything that people lived on were hopes and dreams because people had nothing else to keep them going but the determination to fulfill the American dream ; power, fame and fortune. The murder of the one dog created a domino effect which shattered dreams, took away lives and ended relationships. The death of the puppy could foreshadow the ending of Curley’s wife, ‘a little dead puppy that lay in front of him’, the puppy was small helpless and delicate as was she. Both could not manage the power of Lennie and both ended up on the hay dead and alone ‘Curley’s wife lay with a half covering of yellow hay.
Consider also the following descriptions: Of Jewel, exhausted from working around the clock, falling asleep while milking the cow, "his hands up to his wrists in the milk and his head against the cow's flank” (122); and at the table, "going to sleep in his plate, with a piece of bread halfway to his mouth and his jaws still chewing” (123). Of Anse, who "looks like a figure carved clumsily from tough wood by a drunken caricaturist” (156). Of Cash, after he has fainted from the pain of his broken leg: "with big balls of sweat standing on his face like they had started to roll down and then stopped to wait for him” (177). Of the young Mack Gillespie: "his eyes and mouth three round holes in his face on which the freckles look like English peas on
Despite all this, he goes up the mountain & ,discovers that the beast is in fact just a man. Then he vomits and staggers down the mountain. By now, Ralph and Piggy (both rather ravenous) are attending a big party that Jacki is throwing. Simon, still bloody, sweaty, and covered in puke, stumbles down into the center of the crazed boys, tries to tell them about the beast, but he is unrecognizable and the boys jab at him with their spears until he is dead. Again, the boys are portrayed as savage animals.
He is being accused of burning down the barn of a farmer. The place is not a proper courtroom, they are in some kind of room where they improvised a courtroom. It smells like cheese and fish and Sarty sees some tin cans that later become the symbol for his father. The story is ‘in medias res’, Sarty at this point feels the weight of his blood, that no matter what his father did, he is his father, his blood and anyone
Particularly in part two, the water becomes like “Witch’s oil” the reference to witchcraft could have been seen as predominantly terrifying at the time as the fashion of “Witch hunts” was still rife in the era of publishing; particularly in Eastern Europe and North America, and would have been a practice still in the memory of previous generations. Additionally, at the height of Romanticism in which nature is presented to be a largely wonderful thing the idea of nature becoming so wrong and terrifying could be seen as one of the most abject parts aspects of the mariner’s tale. After killing the albatross the mariner and the sailors begin to rejoice at his actions as the fog clears away in part two, however, they become becalmed and suffer from thirst and hunger now blaming the mariner for their circumstances by hanging the Albatross around his neck. In part three a skeleton ship appears and it seems there is hope that the mariner and the crew will be saved, however they cannot call out to the ship as they have “Black lips baked” an incredibly gothic image that can possibly be compared to Shelley’s Frankenstein and when he describes his creation as having a “shrivelled complexion and straight black lips”. This image of the crew near death that seems to relate to the gothic idea of

(Page19 ) Chapter 1 The Blackened Soil As the wooden wheels of the carriage bumped over the large pebbles lain in the road, the sweating driver whipped the lashes in his hands, as the strange man sitting at the back of the carriage glared at him and told him to speed up. The white bag was tied at the top with a red piece of string; the driver was absolutely convinced it was a body bag.
We’ve killed a pig … we stole up on them … we got in a circle …“ (69). Golding portrays Jack as blood thirsty beast killing everything in sight. Jack spends all of his time on the island hunting (killing) instead of helping Ralph with the rescue. Jack (and his tribe) represents anarchy which is shown in Jack not following Ralph’s orders and just doing whatever he wants. Piggy, the chubby and asthmatic outcast, represents rational thought and intellect.
An Unhappy Home Never Ends Well In the play Trifles by Susan Glaspell, the character Minnie Foster is presented to us in such a way that we don not view her as a murderer. Glaspell accomplishes this by pity, Minnie’s background, and describing what her life must have been like. First, Glaspell accomplishes portraying Minnie as someone who is not a murderer by pity. Throughout the play we start to feel sorry for Minnie. When Mr. Hale talks about how Minnie acted when he discovered her husband, is when we begin to feel pity for her.
