Prometheus comes to understand that the reason he has felt no regret for his actions, is because they are what makes him an individual. This meaning that throughout his life he has been degraded because of how he would wonder and constantly ask questions, but this has made him a person with views and genuine curiosity on how the world works. These are all characteristics of a single person because not all people have the same views on everything. Surprisingly, in Prometheus’ society no one is considered an individual and
McCandless himself had his reasons to hurt his parents that way mainly because they kept living a lie and it just exploded in their face when Chris found out. I am led to believe as well, that McCandless was trying to leave the Stampede Trail because he had forgiven them but since he couldn’t leave due to the river being so high and strong. McCandless had never anticipated or let alone plan to die just to hurt his parents. That was something that came totally unexpected and without his awareness. McCandless was also never a harm to people he met.
Also in Act 4, he was highly conflicted over whether or not to confess to working with the devil to escape death. In the end, he decided lying was a sin he did not want to commit and chose to die a honest man rather than survive as a deceptive man. So in the end it is clear to see that John Proctor still is a good man despite his short-lived affair with Abigail. He was an honest, good-hearted man who wished for nothing more than to live a good life with his wife and children.
Being with this if Chris was to be still alive he would mostly like think of his foolish young adult ways and childhood that caused him to upbring traits that were no good for his travels and life around the people who loved him the most. His ignorance was lead to by his upbringing of family drama, how his death came upon him, and the people who cared for him in which he had no intention of listening to before he stepped into the

In the short story, “The Second Bakery Attack”, Haruki Murakami shows the plights of a young married couple struggling with a peculiar hunger that can only be solved through the illegal act of attacking a bakery. Although there is immense detail about the struggles of the couple and how their “curse” develops, key ideas such as their names, year they were married, and their backgrounds are left out of the narrative completely. Ambiguity in “The Second Bakery Attack” gives the reader a sense of the unknown and possibly supernatural themes to create the image of a curse. This along with the introduction of the curse itself is a reflection of statements Murakami was making about life. Murakami uses the curse and the unsettling vagueness to symbolize supernatural ideas and create the idea that the marriage of the couple is unsatisfactory.
Mccandless sense of self confidence while trying to find his identity helped him to progress in life, but was also his greatest downfall; Into the Wild demonstrates self confidence as not an unacceptable trait to have, but the significance of the negative or positive effects it can possess. Confidence played a big role in Mccandless life, so much that he created relationships with his family and other people that caused him to go on his adventures. Throughout this book Mccandless expresses his hate towards his parents. When he was old enough to realize that his dad had cheated on his mom this particular aspect changed him.
At the end of the novella, Equality was brasher and started using the word “I” in his monologues about how everything was going to change because of the amazing thing that he discovered and did all by himself. That was wrong of Equality to do because his friends helped him along the way in his journey and did not quit on him even though they could have been killed. His friends really helped and Equality was not as sincere and grateful for them as they were for him. There was definitely a huge shift in his character traits in the last two chapters of the

The “absurd man” is victorious by being able to “contemplate his torment”. The absurd man agrees to his torture (the monotony of life) and therefore is happy. And by agreeing he sees the actions as his own and “knows himself to be the master of his days”. 10. Sisyphus at the foot of the mountain “find’s
The consequence was, that he often failed in the field, and rarely against an enemy in station, as at Boston and York. He was incapable of fear, meeting personal dangers with the calmest unconcern. Perhaps the strongest feature in his character was prudence, never acting until every circumstance, every consideration, was maturely weighed; refraining if he saw a doubt, but, when once decided, going through with his purpose, whatever obstacles
