As a result of this trigger, Socrates would have unquestionably taken the decision to escape prison. Yet, Crito’s method fails because Socrates’ moral value exceeds any relation or bond that he held with anyone. He doesn’t believe that a minor dilemma or wrongdoing of the public should have an influence on his decision. Socrates’ actions are honest and align with the laws of Athens.

Conscience is inner critical thinking about one’s behavior and acts of rightfulness or wrongfulness- this can affect how one deals with death and the idea of an afterlife by subconsciously guiding one to act a certain way to obtain the ‘promised afterlife’ in the Christian religion.

Socrates also states in the work, “There is good hope that death is a blessing…” (40c) which makes it known that it is not fully certain, but that is what he believes.

It could be argued that Jonson is communicate that despite the circumstances, a person's identity is never truly lost.

In the poem we discover that the narrator's parents died and that she was haunted by several heated arguments between her parents over their finances. We get the sense that the daughter seems to be on her mother’s side as she used words like “old liar” and “old dead man” to describe her father. The daughter felt angry and hostile towards her father because she was put in the middle of a difficult marital relationship and felt responsible for their money problems.
