Print. I feel that you may think that Johnny is guilty of homicide because he had killed Bob during the evening by the park. He had not attempted to kill him, he was using self defence, as the novel had stated in chapter 4, Johnny warns the socs that showed up that they were in a part of town that they were not supposed to be in but the socs ignored the warning and still provoked the fight. Later in chapter 4 it also informs us that the socs were starting to drown Ponyboy so Johnny had used his switchblade without really meaning to kill anyone. Johnny has informed me that he and Ponyboy Curtis were walking in the park in the evening and that a vehicle had shown up and some boys had gotten out and threatened them.
It has him taking the woman and falling in love with her. He fights a duel with the husband, displaying dazzling swordsmanship, and kills him. Tajomaru's story seems plausible until the wife tells her story. In her version, she is violated and then rejected by her husband because of her violation. The film is not terribly clear on how the husband dies in this version.
Meursault was not sentenced to death because he killed the Arab but because of his absence of emotion to his mother’s death. The people wanted him dead because he posed a threat to the morals of the society. But when he accepts the fact that he is going to die he feels a sense of freedom and he looks forward to his execution. By rejecting to believe in God, it shows that he does value any hope of life after death. Then when he accepts his death sentence, he also takes the punishment away from it either.
and the fear of his own death leads to his ruin. Claudius praying for forgiveness shows his guilt and that his “stronger guilt defeats [his] strong intent” (3.3.85). When Claudius realized that he is “still possessed of those effects for which [he] did the murder” (3.3.85) he knew that he could not be forgiven and all his prayers to be forgiven would not be answered because “words without thoughts never to heaven go” (3.4.87). The guilt Claudius felt eventually turned into Claudius planning the death of Hamlet to save himself. Claudius became aware that Hamlet knew of the murder and that Hamlet was coming home from England “set naked on [his] kingdom” (4.7.116).
Hamlet has doubts about the validity of the ghost; he is too rational a character to seek revenge on Claudius based on a conversation with a supernatural spirit. He is unsure whether it was his father?s ghost, or some evil deity trying to trick him. Hamlet needs to prove that Claudius killed his father before he can act out revenge against him. He also needs to prove it to Gertrude, because he loves his mother and doesn?t want to hurt her by killing Claudius, without proving it warranted. Hamlet?s hesitation is justified because he feels morally obligated to prove that Claudius murdered his father before justice can be carried out.
In Oedipus case, it caused him to become blind and lose his mother after learning the truth too late that he was the one the who killed his father. In addition, Oedipus was also arrogant because he believed to highly of himself and wouldn’t think someone as prominent as him would do such a thing which hindered his hindsight in the situation. On the other hand, in the film Incendies, the characters learn that Nihad is the one who tortured and raped their mom but they still decided to forgive his actions and continue on with their everyday
On the contrary, Mikolka represents the side with having no emotion towards the murder. Mikolka felt the horse was useless and is not doing any good to society and the people around, he also felt that society would benefit from the horse’s death. The exact same way that Raskolnikov feels about Alyona. Raskolnikov felt that people living in poverty would benefit from Alyona’s death. After completing the murder, Raskolnikov begins to have more dreams, this time dealing with guilt.
When Fletcher and Wright are about to leave from Joes house Wright says to Joe, “You do need someone to look after you” (110). Wright is just trying to take out Joe’s rage so Joe possibly will come to the bar without thinking much about the deal so Wright can take out Joe. Wright is so inhumane that he is trying to kill a man for his land and helping Fletcher with his plan. The qualities of the character in the novel Shane make the characters standout as heroes and villains. It is unfair that Shane had to leave and did not get a chance to say good bye to his loved ones because of Fletchers greediness.
It was their duty after they heard of the Vicario brothers’ plot to kill Santiago Nasar to do whatever was necessary to stop the murder; however none of them took enough initiative to prevent the murder from happening. I say enough because some things were done to try and prevent the brothers from completing their mission, but these attempts were weak. As the title indicates, the death was foretold, which means to tell of or indicate beforehand. These three people, Leandro Pornoy, Divina Flor, and Colonel Lazaro Aponte, are responsible for the death because of their lack of effort in stopping the killers. Leandro Pornoy was employed as a policeman during the time of the murder.
He said that he fell on a knife because he didn’t want it to get out but Atticus disagreed because he didn’t want people thinking he used his career to get Jem out of trouble. Mr. Tate shut him up by saying, “God Damn it, I’m not thinking of Jem!” (Lee, 274) Because Boo was the one that actually stabbed Bob, which you have to infer, Mr. Tate basically says that Bob got what he deserved and that it was a form of justice. He said, “There’s a black boy dead for no reason, and the man responsible for it’s dead. Let the dead bury the dead this time, Mr. Finch. Let the dead bury the dead” (Lee 276).
