Furthermore, the Misfit does not have any sympathy or regret for those he murders and simply forgets his wrongdoings. While speaking to the grandmother the Misfit reveals that “‘[he] can do one thing or [...] another, kill a man or take a tire off his car, because sooner or later [he is] going to forget what [he had done] and just be punished for it.’”(O’Connor 25). The Misfit’s inability to understand the purpose of consequences reveals his insanity. His psychological issues are a key factor that institutes his horrific actions. The Misfit’s lack of psychological help contributes to the decay of his morality because with an unstable mind he is unable to grasp moral values whatsoever.
As Lennie escaped from committing murder, George rightfully took advantage to end the problem before it had gotten any worse. The problem of course being his lifelong friend Lennie. As already seen in the novel, Lennie was a disturbance to George's idea of success and a burden to his work life. He got the men in trouble and George was very much justified in putting an end to it. Although Lennie's aunt wanted George to watch over Lennie, George peacefully ended his partner's life before the group of men were “gon’ta wanta get ‘im lynched” (Steinbeck 94) After Lennie was shot by George, the other men agreed George's choice was the right one.
In consequence of killing Curley’s wife, Lennie unknowingly put himself in harm's way. Curley’s motive for wanting to kill Lennie was spite and revenge. So, instead of allowing Lennie to be murdered alone and afraid, George took matters into his own hands and made sure his friend died knowing he was cared for and full of hope. Through it's ironic, George’s choice protected Lennie from the malice of others, thus keeping him unafraid and unharmed. However, others may believe
However, the powerful simpleton never means harm to his victims or comprehends the complications to George that come from the things he does. His thoughtless manner in which he lives represents those who continue to hurt their loves because they cannot think beyond their own needs. When Candy has his dog killed, it is intentional. In part, he allows this to... ... middle of paper ... ... not display it earlier in the plot, he is the only one "brave" enough to "do the deed" personally. The poem lists several ways in which people hurt those that they love.
The narrator quickly informs us that he killed the old man for none of the usual reasons but only because he could not stand the look of the man’s blinded eye. ( enotes ) The narrator is-in this case an unreliable narrator because he is not sane but pleads for others to think he is. Killing some because you didn’t like the way their eye look is not a sane thing to do. The narrator doesn’t even step back to realize the deed as murder or what the consequences would be if found out. Throughout the tale he is trying to prove, sanity exist within him as he depose of the body of the old man in a “sane” way.
I get really concerned about how people perceive me and interpret my actions. However, I’m not really concerned about vanity being my great flaw or becoming the next Narcissus, because everyone is a little vain. Unfortunately, some people take their pride a little overboard. For instance, John Proctor was so vain that he would rather die than tarnish his name; the judges that condemned him had an inkling of knowledge that they were killing innocent people, but by the time they realized it, they couldn’t save people without ruining their reputation. Arthur Dimmesdale let the mother of his child suffer years of judgment because he didn’t want to face the shame of revealing his sin.
Hedda’s relationship with all three men ultimately created a life she was unhappy with thus leading her closer to her death. Her husband, who is suppose to the love of a young wives life meant nothing to Hedda. She treated Tesman as if he was her servant and used him to get whatever she wanted. But her selfishness came back to bite her because she felt completely condemned to life with Tesman which was boring and uneventful. Lovborg was the closest to loving a man who wasn't her father Hedda ever had but she pushed him away and ultimately helped Lovborg’s death arrive sooner then intended by giving him her pistol.
The major fault in his personality is that he seems to show no remorse for Eva and his son Eric is annoyed by this. He seems to be a very hard man, and shows no regret for dismissing Eva which led to her death. Sheila was the second person that the Inspector turned on and her part in the run up to Eva's death shows her in an unfavourable light as she turned on Eva because she was jealous of her. Sheila wrongfully used her position as an important customer to turn Eva out of a job. She even admits, 'it was my own fault´, and that she 'was in a furious temper´.
He was extremely self-centered and didn't stop to think for a second how badly his victims and their families would be affected by their deaths. Except for Macduff, Macbeth intentionally killed his family because of Macduff's lack of loyalty, thinking it would enrage
It is certainly true that “if someone in your life makes you unhappy than they make you happy, it doesn’t matter how much you love them, you must let them go. Not because you no longer care, but finally because you are keeping your needs and happiness first.” This moment marked Delia’s freedom; it marked the end of her sufferings that she faced due to Sykes. Certainly, bad actions always results in misery and punishment. Marquis faced a similar condition when he was shot by the main character’s mother when he was trying to murder the main character. The murder of both the dominant partners perfectly shows that the relationships that do not keep love as the main bond of feelings always end up in a wretched condition.
