( Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, 1774) The meaning is moral pain is same as physical pain, and when someone suffers a lot of moral pain, he can not live too. Except love, Werther is pessimistic when he faces other problems. He signs: “That the life of man is but a dream, many a man has surmised heretofore; and I, too, am everywhere pursued by this feeling. When I consider the narrow limits within which our active and inquiring faculties are confined; when I see how all our energies are wasted in providing for mere necessities, which again have no further end than to prolong a wretched existence.”
When you look at the plot, each event is a response to Iago 's provocation. But a lack of self-control underlies the actions of Othello and Cassio. And the irony comes from how they both have high standings as authority figures. So it would be reasonable to assume that no one could penetrate their pride or morality. Nonetheless, Iago does so by getting Cassio into a fight and making Othello jealous.
By examining the characters and their varying degrees of masculinity in the movie Fargo, we are able to see the role in which the Coen brothers stereotypically categorized the differing levels of machismo. Through the characters actions and personalities portrayed in the movie it becomes clear he exposes the differing testosterone regardless of gender.

Despite the fact that he at first does not have any vindictive considerations and thoughts, he in the long run becomes a murderer due to emotionally untrustworthy and jealousy.
His superego is extremely underdeveloped because of its ability to revert back to the Id with no hesitation, and his ego barely mediates between both the Id and superego, favoring one or the other depending on the situation. This hostility within the unconscious mind creates conscious and unconscious conflicts within the narrator, especially when he questions individual trust. When deciding whether or not to obey certain antagonists such as Dr. Bledsoe or Brother Jack, he begins to analyze the situation drastically, viewing his past experiences as a major factor into his final decision. This train of thought provokes disputes within the narrator's unconscious and conscious mind. In a situation where Bledsoe made the narrator leave the college, the narrator's unconscious mind chose to obey him and leave.
The poem shows us how even though the antagonist has nothing against the other man, the other man still loathes the antagonist because of his manner, and this drives the man, who hates the antagonist insane, and how at the end, his secret will never be kept quiet because his inner consciousness make everything hidden inside him, revealed. Both texts, “The Tell-Tale Heart”, and “I can stand him no longer” show how no matter how much you antagonize another person, at the end, you will feel guilty for what you did and the guilt stays with you forever until you redeem yourself. Both literary pieces implement the concept of guilt by using similar literary devices. The device in use of
Many times throughout western literature, monsters are portrayed as a threat to the existence of humanity. In Grendel by John Gardner and Frankenstein by Mary Shelley, this idea is skewed by the actions of their respective monsters. Both of these novels captivate the reader by having a monster narrate the story, which is uncommon in many works of literature.
