The evil doer digs a pit for others but falls into the same; this is natural justice. Do you agree?
How poetic justice has been incorporated in the poem The Inchcape Rock by Robert Southey?
Yes, it is proved time and again in the human history that the evil doer digs a pit for others but falls into the same. This is, surely, a form of natural justice. In the poem The Inchcape Rock the Abbot placed a bell on the rock to save people, but the rover cut it down to fulfill his ill-desires. So, it was almost on the cards that he himself will eventually be a victim of his own deed. The poet has the same message to convey to the readers. The rover’s fall in the end serves as a poetic justice as well as what may be called a natural justice.
