had a gift of royalty from her marriage but she doesn’t care whether it’s special or not. Selfishness can be a form of savagery in human’s just like Killing one of your loved ones. One text that shows how humans are savages is in “Porphyria's Lover”. Porphyria shows love to narrator later but dies by his hands. Raining during the night near a fireplace in a dark building. As the narrator sits with porphyria he says “Porphyria Worshiped me [...] I am quite sure she felt no pain”(p.10). The narrator kills porphyria because she did not show much love towards him until she realized what was wrong and he went with his an irrational judgement. Overall Between Lord of the Flies, My Last Duchess, And Porphyria's Lover, these text shows that humans are fundamentally savage. In Lord of the Flies humans can be savages through living in a non-civilized environment and becoming the uncivilized animal like how jack chants words about his kill with his hunters. My Last Duchess showed that selfishness can turn humans into savages such as how the duke explained why his wife deserved her fate. irrationality is also another way that humans are savages depending on the situation such as how the narrator took irrational judgements. Overall humans are savages even though they don’t appear as savages.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
