God is not pleased about Everyman not being prepared for when Death comes upon them. When one goes through life sinning, they must also remember their need for God. c. The important message in the morality play is that God does not want his people to through life and not acknowledge him until the time comes for Death. Everyman Introduction The morality play “Everyman” is a medieval, 15th century drama that was written to portray Death as it approaches Everyman once his time comes to face God on judgment day.

However, because Okonkwo is unaware of the Christian culture he cannot act against his son. It is apparent that committing suicide is Okonkwo’s way of going against Christianity. This act not only costs him his life but it also takes away the respect Umuofia once had for

/O, this is hire and salary, not revenge” (3.3). Hamlet makes excuses saying that if he kills Claudius while he is praying, then his soal will go to heaven and he doesn’t deserve that. The irony is that Claudius knows he isn’t going to heaven and if Hamlet killed him, he wouldn’t have gone to heaven. Claudius admits this saying, “My words fly up, my thoughts remain below. /Words without thoughts never to heaven go” (3.3).
However he is stopped not only by the thought of revenge but because of the fixed law that one cannot commit suicide to enter the gates of heaven. He wishes God had not created the law against suicide just so that he could end his life and still go to heaven. Here, Shakespeare not only uses God but also the laws created by Him to represent Hamlet’s supergo in the sense that it represents Hamlet’s conscience telling him that while suicide may seem like the best option
In their eyes, suffering can have a meaning only as a punishment for sin. Job denies this, for he is aware that he has not deserved such punishment: he speaks of the good that he has done in his life. In the end, God himself reproves Job 's comforters. Job 's suffering is the suffering of someone who is innocent.
The death of Okonkwo at the end was unpredictable because throughout the novel, Chinua Achebe described him as a strong warrior who feared of nothing besides failure and weakness. When Okonkwo committed suicide, he also committed the only thing he feared, and that was

"(Lackey 493) From this statement one can suggest that Huckleberry's morals were spoken into fruition by God, thus why he claim it is wrong to loot and maltreat others, which is against the bible, yet with prejudice, based on his own feeling, he ultimately does not betray Jim. Although Huckleberry
To others, taking away Shylock’s religion and livelihood is not considered being merciful because they are punishing Shylock for trying to get what was rightfully his. This shows that the value of mercy is subjective, and differs from person to person. Furthermore, there is the important question of when and how much mercy should be shown. In this scene, Shylock is asked to give mercy when he has to reason to. However, the duke claims that he is merciful to Shylock, even though he is not obliged to.
In Beowulf, the themes of liberation and sacrifice can be seen in Beowulf’s heroic narrative. Believed to be sent by God to rescue the people of Heorot, Beowulf not only serves as their warrior, but their protector from every evil that threatens their land. Beowulf sacrifices his own life to save the people, accepting his own death at the hands of the dragon. The themes of sacrifice and liberation are major themes in Beowulf, as seen through Beowulf’s willingness to defeat Grendel at Heorot and willingness to die fighting the dragon. Beowulf is first introduced as a liberator when he defeats Grendel and restores Danish power at Heorot.
The success of Risk Risks are the something people will take to achieve a goal, in which, that is what set those people apart from the rest. Those people are then labelled as the greats. Now, those who exceed the label of great, accomplish this by continuing taking risks, even after they do not reach their goals. Taking risks is what pushes people to do the unthinkable, and that is how we accomplish progress. Taking a risk is a necessary part of achieving success.
The authors use of the hero tradition is contradicted when we get a glimpse of Beowulf’s arrogance. During the final battle as Beowulf said his goodbyes to his followers, he humbly reassured them, “fate decides which of [them] wins,” showing now sound of arrogance (666-667). Beowulf is living up to the “hero” expectation in the citizens’ eyes; he is being selfless for this kingdom. However this role is not applicable for him just yet. His humility, that the other characterized for him, is overlooked as he states, “this dragon’s treasure, his gold and everything hidden in that tower will be mine,” showing his true intentions.
Taking risk is something we do every day and we may not even know it. Just walking outside is taking a risk; you could get killed or someone can take you. Also, taking a risk help us grow as a person and we can learn from taking those risks. It makes us who we are. Something taking risks can have a good and a bad outcome.
As said by Tomy Beta, “you are the fairytale told by your ancestors.” This quote is directly referring to the importance of ancestry and how it plays a part in a person's life, and the way they are perceived by others. In Beowulf, this idea of ancestry proves to be one of the biggest ways Beowulf finds his identity, and achieves his goals. Ancestry, in this sense, is not only a part of your life, but a part of your past and future generations. Additionally, the way a person is perceived can be tied to their motivation in pursuing heroic acts.
