He gave us a gift to use it for His glory.
Throughout the novel, Solomon’s goal is to achieve transcendence, but every time he is on the cusp of succeeding, he is denied. Similar to Sisyphus, Solomon continues to push to reach his goal. For Solomon, his goal is to transcendence so he can “see everything,” but this makes him leave behind the ignorance that kept him content with life in the Dungle (Patterson 215). Since Solomon can “see the whole extent of the sky,” or the entirety of his life, he is able to see how monotonous and fruitless the human life is and the endless cycle of hopeless poverty the people in the Dungle face (Patterson 215). Another point that reinforces the meaninglessness in Solomon’s life is in Sic Vitae.

To illustrate, a change of identity occurs, “If only [Eliezer] were relieved of this responsibility… Instantly, [he] felt ashamed, ashamed of [himself] forever,” when he almost tried to leave his father alone (106). Elie faces a permanent change of identity when he strays away from his old educated habits and becomes a selfish creature when going through pain. Another example of a change of identity within Elie is when his father dies, “And deep inside [him], if [he] could have searched the recesses of [his] feeble conscience, [he] might have found something like: Free at Last!” expressing that his father’s death finally freed him, out of the misery, out of the agony (112). Eliezer’s journey with his father through the excruciating concentration camps developed him from an innocent teenager to a mature man with the capabilities to succeed in unbearable situations. Thus, Wiesel’s identity changed drastically throughout the progression of the

Then Creon says, “Let that day come, oh let it come, the fairest of all destinies for me, the one which brings on my last day. Oh let it come, so that I never see another dawn.” (1473-1477), which shows the readers that he is more than willing to die to atone for what he had done to his family. The dramatic turn of events and Creon’s major drop from an arrogant, stubborn, and immoral character to a sad, pitiful, and unfortunate one is more than enough to flip the reader’s attitude toward Creon from an unfavorable view to a sympathetic one. Ultimately, Creon was a foolish man who was too stubborn to heed anyone’s advice, and by the time he finally decided to, it was too late. Even though the way he acted initially was very despicable and he refused to take anyone else into consideration
