After witnessing Lupito’s death, Lupito still remains within Antonio’s mind wandering like a lost soul not knowing the ending to his death. He still continues to question whether god has helped his spirit or if he is forever lost to wander. “It is the soul of Lupito, they cried in fear, doomed to wander the river at night because the waters washed his soul away!”(Pg. 26) This is the first placement of Antonio’s religious ambivalence. Antonio may think to himself that seeing someone die is a sin, the idea of growing up thinking that the world is perfectly put together and being restricted from reality is a sin, restriction is a sin.
Hamlet 's tragic flaw is his inability to kill Claudius when the chance was there. He delayed Claudius death too many time in which ultimately caused the deaths of, his mother, Ophelia, Laertes, and himself. Hamlet could’ve killed Claudius but he decided to doubt himself and delay his death. Hamlet had a point where he thinks if he should “to be or not to be,” (III.i.64).
He drove claudius into paranoidness because claudius was scared that he was going to kill him and hamlet did succeed but he also died too, an eye for an eye. Hamlet should have been placed in a mental hospital in todays day and age but that did not happen, he ended up hurting all of his peers. Hamlet is wrong because he thinks killing people will solve the issue which it will not so that is why he
He lost his beloved one. He uses what he adores to kill another one that he loves. This feeling, this emotion, is just too strong to bare that he lost his hope to live, lost his direction to live on. The fact that he died from cancer is a metaphor that signifies he is tired of this life and ready to take off. Thus, this conveys the message that Mr. Searcy wants to tell in this essay: love and hope are meaningful and essential goals that people live
After everything Elie and his inmates have been through they wanted to die and felt like death itself. "But we no longer feared death, in any event not this particular death" (Wiesel 60). Death is the most important image in the book because everybody was expecting it to take them. At one point in time Elie wanted to kill himself. Many people wanted to kill them self or expected one of the officers to order
(32). The symbol Night is really important to the story's theme because it signifies the death of childhood, faith, innocence and millions of people. The environment that Weisel had around him caused him to lose his innocence, he had to see things that he never thought were even humanly possible and that made him question why God wouldn't do something to stop the horrible things that were happening to them. “Night” then became a world without God, and without something to believe in, the hope of their survival wasn't

With the cruelty of this world and the impeccable pressure of life, I will not be surprised if we all just kill ourselves, but we should not, because killing ourselves does not solve anything, in fact it can make things worse. We were all brought up with the notion that the act of suicide is wrong, yet there are still thousands who kill themselves every year, ending their lives forever. I am here to tell you that this has to stop and here are the reasons why. First, suicide defeats the purpose of life.
To me O’brien uses this quote to explain that Vietnam was a pointless war that our country entered and because of that they must live with the deaths of every soldier there, the only goal of the Vietnam war was to survive. The fear of death got so intense that men ultimately thought death was the only way to escape. Death wasn’t only feared in a scared way, sometimes it was in a way that made men evil, Mitchell Sanders tells Alpha Company a story of a man who fled from his platoon to go and sleep with a Red Cross nurse only to return days later, excited more than ever about being back in combat because everything else was to peaceful and he wanted to hurt people again. Nightmares are feared by many people in society today but we have a way to escape and still live our lives. What happens when you live in your nightmare like every man in Vietnam did, not knowing when or how death was going to come for you, and knowing the only way of escaping that hell was to kill whatever stood in your way, to be wounded severely, or to give up life
John Proctor died to protect his honor and the honors of the others that died but his death did just the opposite because he forfeited his treasured honor by becoming one of the hanged. Reverend Hale tried to warn him of this even till the point when he was hung. Hale screamed out, “Shall the dust praise him [Proctor]? Shall the worms declare his [Proctor’s] truth?”(Miller 134). Proctor’s death was meant to preserve his name, but he ultimately lost his life.
Paul has to lie to Kemmerich’s mother or else she would have been even more upset than she had been when she heard the bad news. Paul is devastated when his friend died but stays brave because he knew with war comes death. An example that also proves this is, “Kat falls. We two are alone… Couldn’t I shoot myself quickly in the foot so as to be able to go with him… ‘he is stone dead’ …
"When a man died, there had to be blame. Jimmy Cross understood this. You could blame the war… A moment of carelessness or bad judgment or plain stupidity carried consequences that lasted forever" (115). In both the novel and the video, it was shown that the soldiers would quickly take blame for the actions in battle.
He chose to die in his little brothers place, wanting just one more year with him before he thought they would be separated forever.
