When Bob made that promise, the old man expected his to follow through and keep his end of the bargain. In reality, Bob never intended to keep his promise to the old man. His intentions are wrong because promises made to people should be kept regardless of if you know them very well or not. The actions of one person can have a huge effect on another. It is possible because Bob cheated the aged retired man, the elderly man will stop helping other like he usually does.
He knows what is right and wrong but one example has been haunting him in his life. Now in a Puritan society, sin had to have been confessed publicly and they must bear their shame. This however goes against what the Word actually says and this is what created Arthur Dimmesdale as a character. He most likely has already repented to God but his guilt will not leave until he confesses it to his congregation and it leads him to other “ways” of repentance. Being reminded of his guilt 24/7 causes his his health to deteriorate to the point of death, possibly alluding to the fact that the wages of sin are death.
Was George justified in killing Lennie my personal opinion is gorge was wrong and it wasn't right for him to kill him or so called euthanasia lennie was his best friend who hes lived with thru thick and thin thru the rough times and the good times and they weren't just friends but one almost completed the other to where they were whole they were to me almost life partners in a weird kind of way Some causes of why George killing Lennie could be considered wright are due to lennie strangling curley's wife he was already going to jail any way therefore he wasn't going to be free anymore anyway also he hurt everything he touched for example the puppy that Carlson gave him he choked it to tight curley's hand he squeezed it so tight it almost killed
Had Claudio persevered in trusting his friend whom he loved, he never would have allowed himself to be duped by Don John. Of course, Claudio allows himself to be duped a second time as well, this time allowing himself to believe that Hero has been unfaithful. Again, had he allowed himself to trust his instinctual beliefs about Hero 's modesty and virtue and to question Don John 's character, he never would have allowed himself to be duped this second time, showing us just how important trust is in relationships. We see Shakespeare show us how important forgiveness is in relationships when we see Hero forgive Claudio for his atrocious behavior. Instead, she allows herself to be born anew through forgiveness and proceed with the wedding.
Moreover, such devotion to the family creates the basis for Santino 's subsequent death because his image is complete and does not have the appropriate dynamism. Santino only seeks to protect the family at any cost; in the end, it leads him to betrayal. Santino also dies because he loves his sister too much and can not accept that her husband, his former friend, is hurting her. Santino Corleone in the eyes of the viewer is not a villain and not a murderer, and not a cruel person. He lived and died for the sake of the family, thus creating a glow of compassion for his
His suicide is an act of defiance in asserting the traditional ways of his tribe but also an act of sadness because those ways are no more. In the end, he is neither a good or evil character, but a man who possess both good and evil traits due to the change occurring around him. The story of the tortoise mentioned that as All of you fell “He fell and fell and fell until he began to fear he would never stop falling” (99). This is significant in noting that the good within Okonkwo felt as if his wrong doing would continue to make him fall. His act of suicide can be interpreted as him putting an end to the evil within
After watching Myrtle get hit by a car, Wilson spirals into a depression fueled by madness, and although he eventually killed Gatsby out of revenge, George Wilson remains on of the more moral characters in Fitzgerald’s work. Wilson lived his life as a man of God, holding onto his values above all else, and when those morals failed him, he lost all sense of who he was. Those who hold a high standard of morals, such as George Wilson, often have more to lose, and as a result don’t handle tragedy well. Moral individuals in the lower classes have less to fall back on, and therefore more to lose. This can often lead to them not handling tragedy well, because they feel as though their morals have failed them.
He wanted to defeat the British in every way but he had lost the support and respect of his clansman because of his actions. Without the help and support of his village he knew he wasn’t going to be able to defeat the British alone and he was defeated in the end. So much had changed so quickly in his life and everything had just got the best of him. He committed suicide and that was very disgraceful just like the same type of death his father suffered. Okonkwo is the protagonist and tragic hero of this story.
The narrator of “The Seventh Man” should forgive himself because the blame he puts on himself, is not logical, because he couldn’t have done anything to save his best friend, K. In the short story, “The Seventh Man” the narrator describes the guilt and burden he carries throughout his life and how he lives a difficult life full of sorrow. The guilt he feels is called “survivor guilt”. The thought that someone could of done or should of done differently is considered “survivor guilt”. The blame that the narrator feels is very irrational. Others who also deal with survivor guilt know the irrationality but still take responsibility.
He feels like death will be the relief and that his life was in a state of disaster that could not be recovered. It’s better to burn out than fade away expresses his certainty of his act. That he knew he really wanted to do it with o second thought. That he’d rather die loved than fade out of music altogether when he became unpopular. By fading away, it is true that Cobain wouldn’t be directly in the spotlight, however, the depression would still be there, it’s still an illness regardless of whether or not he as active in the music industry.
John Proctor did not sign the testimony because he wanted to protect his name. In my opinion he was excessively prideful and foolish. If it would have been me, I would have signed the testimony so that I could 've lived. He should have admitted that he was consorting with the devil instead of hanging, he would still be able to be with his family if he would have been smarter about his decisions. John Proctor was being selfish as well when he chose to die instead of sign the testimony.
He needs to be able to forgive himself for his failure to save his friend K., so he can live a life free of the burden of survivor guilt. One reason why the Seventh Man should forgive himself is because of the unreasonableness of feeling survivor guilt. In “The Moral Logic of Survivor Guilt” by Nancy Sherman, it explains how survivor guilt works, and says, “The guilt begins an
