He supports his idea with three possible hypothesis: first, the narrator was a victimized child that resulted with some psychotic symptoms; second, the narrator is re-enacting his abuse to make the old man feel what he suffered; and for last, the old man is a victim of the narrator´s threat of incest. In several occasions the narrator stated that he loved the old man and did not wanted his gold; making a clear connection between them. After re-reading the story it actually made sense what this essay is trying to explain. His obsession can be a result of the unknown truth that will haunt him forever. Kachur uses a study written by Etherington that states that children abused by the same gender parent will have a greater problem with self-differentiation and establishment of personal identity; which can be an explanation of how the narrator sees the “Evil Eye” and the old
In this sense, at the outset of GM Nietzsche frames its Leitfragen as ‘[…] under what conditions did man devise these value judgments good and evil? And what value do they themselves possess? Have they hitherto hindered or furthered human prosperity?’ (GM 3). Along the same lines, a bit later he adds that ‘[…] we need a critique of moral values, the value of these values themselves must first be called in question – and for that there is needed a knowledge of the conditions and circumstances in which they grew, under which they evolved and changed […]’ (GM6). Crucially, this already reveals an aspect of genealogy which places it in line with Hadot 's concept of a spiritual exercise – namely, the fact that it serves the goal of fostering human prosperity through liberation from a condition of

Despite the several flaws found through John Proctor's role in Arthur Miller's, "The Crucible" my analysis of Proctor's character reasons him to be a good man in the end. Within the play, John Proctor analyzes his past actions, realizing that his affair with Abigail Williams, deeply wounds his connection with his wife, Elizabeth Proctor. It is explained within the story by the author, that John Proctor's strong personality stems from his guilt. The speaker states, "He is a sinner, a sinner not only against the moral fashion of the time but against his own vision of decent conduct" (Miller, 255).
Charles Chesnutt’s “The Doll” is a story of seeking truth, facing discrimination, and making bold choices for the sake of one’s own livelihood. Through Tom Taylor’s slow-building narrative, Chesnutt reveals the complications keeping the barber from exacting his revenge on the man who murdered his father, despite having the perfect opportunity to do so when the same man, Colonel Forsyth, steps into Tom’s barbershop. While “The Doll” primarily illustrates Tom’s emotional turmoil as the colonel taunts him by retelling the story of his father’s death, it also presents a overarching question at the heart of this tale, regarding how black Americans are to advance and protect themselves as individuals within a societal system built against that very

This quote is significant due to Hamlet’s slight distrust of the ghost, and the use of the play to revile the truth of Claudius’ malevolent decision. Hamlet asks the only person he trust Horatio to help him watch over Claudius’, in order to finally determine his guilt. With the help of Horatio, Hamlet can continue on with the revenge plot and rightfully go through with the plan. That is representative to the theme of revenge because Hamlet will use the play to avenge his father’s sick murder. The motif of play and actors are relevant in this quote, because Hamlet has the actors play out a similar death of his father.

This character trait accurately describes the behaviour of Arthur Miller 's protagonist Willy Loman in the play, Death of a Salesman. Willy Lowman 's method of coping with his failures is by living in a fantasy world, however, reality secondary to fantasy provokes unpleasant
Because of this realisation, Nietzsche concluded that all values must be revalued. As a result, he strove to find the Overman, a more-than-human being that emerges only by overcoming the false idols of conventional morality and religion, and the Master morality, the aesthetic honor code of the overman.

Arthur Miller’s play, Death of a Salesman, uses characterization, foils, and symbols in order to show that Willy Loman’s actions represent his moral code. Readers are shown what Willy Loman values most through his characterization. Emphasis is put on being well-liked and having connections.
Now, my issue with the theory of Natural Law is this. Everything has to work, or be done within the boundaries of reason. If it is not, then it 's hypocrisy and should be cast down into the abyss. Because in Natural Law there has to be order in it or everything goes astray. Which is why you see a lot of naturalists/naturists despise bulldozers and heavy machinery, because they are altering the ground, and the earth to help lay the foundation for cities, suburbs, and homes.
