However, Everyman is sorely disappointed, as Goods, too, will not bear witness for Everyman. Everyman is provided little solace, as the aforementioned characters could only offer him worldly matters. In despair, Everyman thinks on his good deeds, which are
Creon’s overall power grants him his free will. He says, “I know. You point the horns of my dilemma. It's hard to eat my words, but harder still to court catastrophe through overriding pride.” (240). Creon tells the Leader that even though Tiresias has shown the truth of his actions, he cannot admit them or change them because he has no power left, no free will.
Grendel strives to break from this from this “Mechanical” world which he inhabits and desires for the establishment of a singular ideology that he can follow and accept. Grendel's inability to associate himself with one distinct group; soon to be feared by the humans and unable to communicate with his mother, leaves him vulnerable for the rash humans who quickly turn to violence to imprint on Grendel. The Captain follows suit, his life of secrecy, deception, and his facade of truth makes it so that the narrator can never get too close to anyone, even his best friends. The Narrator is often berated by
Goodman Brown still appears to have confidence in his own particular good convictions, yet he has lost his confidence in whatever remains of the world to hold these convictions. Goodman Brown 's own particular absence of confidence on the planet has made him unforgiving on the grounds that he accepts no one but malevolence can be sired from detestable and there is nothing that should be possible to transform it. As opposed to seeing the positive qualities in individuals and their activities and excusing their wrongdoings, Goodman Brown just dislikes them and trusts individuals to be fakers. In all reality, it is Goodman Brown who is the poser since he trusts he can condemn the individuals who sin, yet he doesn 't mull over his own particular sins. " 'You have heard however it was stated, "you might love your neighbor and detest your foe" 'yet I say to you, adore your foes, favor the individuals who revile you, do great to the individuals who detest you, and appeal to God for the individuals who angrily utilize you and abuse you, that you might be children of your Father in paradise; for He influences the sun to ascend on the malice and on the great, and sends rain on the only and on the unjustifiable '".
Do you have no pride in your deed? You are a defeatist, not a man, endeavoring to stay away from what you have caused will frequent you till the end. I disgrace myself for not having the capacity to perceive that you aren 't steadfast, fair, nor a genuine man." Macbeth not having the capacity to get reality and outcomes, chooses to cover his ears with the two hands, however finds no advantage. The expressions of Duncan secured Macbeth, as he trembles brutally and tries to withstand the blame.
The Grand Inquisitor, as described by Ivan, puts himself in a very pessimistic attitude toward human nature, he states humans are in essence weak and they need to be controlled through miracle mystery and authority. On this thematic I chose the following quote, “That day must come when men will understand that freedom and daily bread enough to satisfy all are unthinkable and can never be had together, as men will never be able to fairly divide the two among themselves. And they will also learn that they can never be free, for they are weak, vicious, miserable nonentities born wicked and rebellious.” (Dostoyevsky, 37). Because according to how the Grand Inquisitor’s vision of the world, even after meeting Jesus, having the blood and flesh of
London manipulates Buck and Spitz in order to display his pessimistic views concerning vie. Through Spitz’s death, London exhibits a theme that rivalry causes harm, and Rousseau expands on this by explaining how social organization is also detrimental to society because it leads to comparison and competition. These views differ from how man views these topics today. He disregards these opinions by supporting and rewarding competition whether it deals with sports, jobs, or education. The wizard competition in the show Wizards of Waverly Place expresses these same opinions.
“The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock,” as a picture of the Modern human condition, portrays humanity as doomed to forever wander around, never really “living,” wandering around in an incessant search of meaning, where none actually exists, having society dehumanize and reduce people to mindless cogs in an oppressive machine. As Meursault portrays, life is, essentially, absurd — a paradox in which humanity endlessly searches for meaning when the universe is inherently meaningless. However, as Meursault also portrays, life does not have to stay meaningless. Life does not have to always be lived passively, always in reaction to life, without making meaning for the individual people actually living out that life. Meursault is able to find meaning in a
Holden’s solitude is more evident because he is trying to keep his innocence while rest of the world is pressuring him and he has no companions to help him. In the end he realizes that he must learn to deal with the loneliness that he brought upon by himself, which leads him into depression. Huckleberry shares these intense feelings of rejection since several events led him to feel very “lonesome.” However, unlike Holden who was also physically completely alone, Huck Finn is always accompanied by Tom Sawyer or
