It takes time, experiences and lessons until the concept can be grasped. Although it is a simple “who are you?” question, the answer is not given until one can meet their fullest potential and then have it handed to them. Antonio Marez is brought into the novel as the protagonist who seems to have trouble with obtaining the answers he is in search for, concerning his destined future as well his beliefs. Although his parents did not seem to realize it, their conflicting views made it difficult for him to accept either of their frequently expressed belief systems.
To a developing mind, communication and understanding are first grasped literally. In the case of children, figurative speech is more difficult to comprehend due to its abstract nature. This is explicated in the short story “Salvation” by Langston Hughes. Langston goes through a dilemma during salvation, defined in the sense of Theology as “the deliverance from sin and its consequences,” (“salvation, n”) when his aunt apprises him of Jesus coming down in the form of bright light for his liberation. His literal interpretation of his aunt’s metaphoric language led to a host of emotions and confusion on his path to redemption.
Because of all this, one might come to believe Henry is indeed a static character, but I feel that is not the truth. Henry learned many lessons about life throughout the timeline of the book and I feel these are the reasons he is a dynamic character. To begin, he first encountered the priest very early on in the story. The priest taught Henry about religion.
I was at a point in my life where I was okay with life, but I was missing something. There was a part of life that I desired to have, but I did not know how to get it. I was trying different churches and I thought I might have found the one. I was ignoring the one which I knew was the one for me, kind of like when Pictor turned away from the tree before he could see the transformation, I turned away from the church before I would allow it to transform me.
This fixation upon these “betrayals”, as he sees them, is first revealed in Hamlet’s first soliloquy when he says, “She married. O most wicked speed, to post / with such dexterity to incestuous sheets!” (Shakespeare I. ii. 156-157). He holds onto this idea for the whole three years over which Hamlet is set, using it even in the last scene of the last act as he finally does murder Claudius.
Edgar Allen Poe’s short story The Black Cat immerses the reader into the mind of a murdering alcoholic. Poe himself suffered from alcoholism and often showed erratic behavior with violent outburst. Poe is famous for his American Gothic horror tales such as the Tell-Tale Heart and the fall of the House of Usher. “The Black Cat is Poe’s second psychological study of domestic violence and guilt. He added a new element to aid in evoking the dark side of the narrator, and that is the supernatural world.”
It symbolizes the horrible violence and deeds executed by Macbeth that Lady Macbeth is suffering from. Throughout Macbeth, the symbol of the supernatural plays an important role to the development of the plot. At the end of the sleepwalking scene the doctor says, "Foul whisp'rings are abroad. Unnatural deeds Do breed unnatural troubles" (V. i. 49-50).

In Rudolfo Anaya’s portrayal of spiritual and mental growth in this novel Bless Me, Anaya shows a effective meaning as well as he gives a powerful challenge to Catholic religion and the Hispanic culture. He throws in all these of these questions that no one wants to answer because these questions are not really what people want to hear or they don’t know how to answer these questions. He lets these question and facts of religion shape him and let them influence his choices and his mind set. This will soon come into play with what makes him a person and what he decides for himself.

Macbeth is a piece of Shakespeare that will last forever. It is a tale of manipulation, murder, deceit, and a man falling into all these traps. A man whose quest for the throne turns him into a murder, his conscious gets consumed by bloodshed and greed. Shakespeare uses blood in a symbolic way throughout the story. Being that the story weighs heavily on blood and guilt, blood represents life at the beginning of the play and then turns into guilt throughout the story.
In a conversation that Father Jerome has with Aenons, the difference of cultures between them is made very apparent, especially when it comes to dreams. Father Jerome tells Aenons that he and his people no longer have a need for interpreting dreams, as God will tell them what to do. This is hard for Aenons to accept when he says, “if we give our belief in the dream, then the Huron life, the way we have always known, will end for us” (Moore 230). It is more than just a dream to the Hurons, it is their beliefs and their way of life, and Father Jerome doesn’t understand that. Even when Aenons is talking to Father Laforgue, he is still reluctant about what conversion might do to him and his people.
