Victor is then taken to Belrive in order to find peace, there he pondered about the outcome caused by his actions. However rather than finding the peace his father wanted him to find his mind fills with the desire of revenge against his own creation. Unable to handle the emotional pressure he pursues a lonely trip to the valley of Chamounix. Here the mood then begins fluctuating as he purses internal peace but his guilt keeps tormenting his mind. He first “ceased to fear, or to bend before any being less almighty” (Shelly 107) and “a tingling long-lost sense of pleasure often came across [him] (Shelley 107), however then he found himself “fettered again to grief and indulging in the misery of reflection” showing the nature of his internal conflict.

A short story used to study paranoia and the tragedy of mental deterioration, Edgar Allen Poe’s “The Tell Tale Heart” illuminates the psychological contradictions that contribute to the narrator’s murderous profile. In the early moments of the piece, the narrator adamantly claims that he is not insane; however, his blood lust and obsession with the old man’s eye convince the reader otherwise. To this point, the reader might wonder what sane human being would dismember a helpless, elderly man. In fact, many readers may deem the narrator a sociopath, a man incapable of taking moral responsibility for his crimes. However, the narrator’s obvious guilt in the end of the piece proves the extremity of this accusation.

Many say that your enemies define you; yet, I believe that what truly defines you is your way of thinking; your perspective of things and your philosophy. However, even when men try to establish order within their inner selves in the midst of a relentless chaos by building the foundations of their principals, they can sometimes clash with the welfare of others. Therefore, I would ponder the possibility of ending my life with dignity in the face of a terminal disease for the sake of my loved ones, even if it means a direct altercation with my psyche and my morality. Carl Jung’s archetypes explain that the psyche is fragmented in two, the Self and the Shadow, which must harmonically coexist; this component of Jungian psychology deeply relates to one’s inner conflict when in the face of a predicament, just like the one exposed previously. In truth, finding said balance is imperative and that is why I believe that no yielding to the illness would the be the better decision in accord to my principles.
The soliloquy “to be or not to be” expresses Hamlet 's contemplation of suicide. He is bemoaning the pain and suffering in life but at the same time acknowledges that the alternative might be even worse, as it is a complete mystery. Although he never once speaks as if he 's talking about himself the audience still gets the feeling that this speech is indeed directed towards himself, as the soliloquy poses a thought that weighs heavily on his mind. In this soliloquy Hamlet is expressing feelings of defeat and hopelessness; a feeling that life is not worth living, “For who would bear the whips and scorns of time” (III,I,71) “When he himself might his quietus make with a bare bodkin? (III,I,76-77).
Pride often leads to someone’s downfall - this idea has been developed from the playwright “Oedipus the king” through Rey’s interactive oral presentation. He discussed that Oedipus’ excessive pride over his knowledge due to solving riddles allows him to not listen to others including the respected Prophet , his dear relative Kreon - he seldom pays heed to them and decides to pursue further for searching the predecessor’s murderer . His own path opens up hidden , dark truth about his life. From the presentation it has been evident that Oedipus was not smart enough to realize that the path he set for himself, will eventually bring nothing but pain. Oedipus guaranteed to the citizens of Thebes that he will definitely cooperate, and banish
Judgements are often made by people without considering past or current situations of others. By putting yourself in one’s shoes and experiencing their situation yourself, an opinion will change. Addiction is a horrible disease that took over Nic Sheff’s life, much to the dismay of his father. Through personal experience of years of anguish, depression, anger, and disappointment, the judgements of Sheff altered. The discomfort of thought and experience ultimately allowed Sheff to construct an enlightened
But it can be explored from so many angles by so many ideas. Man Sometimes uses several types of greed in order to live or to escape from death, at that time, it is compulsory to do that. But if this desire continues to become a habit and then develops, it will be unwanted thing. Joan Riviere, a British psychoanalyst, notes that greed "represents an aspect of the desire to live. … By its very nature it is endless and never assuaged; and being a form of the impulse to live, it ceases only with death" ( David P. Levine, 67) .
In “Property,” Stony never flat out states that he is hurt about the passing away of his wife; but his friction with objects, that appear to be so mundane, like the platform bed is central to our understanding of what exactly is hurting him. A bed is more than just a place of rest; it holds all the memories central to everyone’s lives. In demeaning the bed and finding every way to disassociate himself with it, it becomes obvious that Stony is forcing himself to avoid recollecting his union with Pamela and their many memories. Stony only allows us to see how hurt he is through his actions and the author’s diction. Ranging from the author’s association of the bed as a torture device to Stony moving and placing the bed in the studio with the other precious items, Stony’s true feelings towards his wife’s passing are
