The next gruesome act John Doe preforms is where John Doe straps a drug addict to a bed for an entire year barely keeping him alive so that he suffers the entire time.

It is, therefore, true to say that Sammy's rebellion in the John Updike's A & P is more futile than heroic and only makes negative complications in his life.

In the story “ The Devil and Tom Walker” by Washington Irving, the theme of greed is exaggerated through Tom Walker’s life story. Throughout the story, Walker’s estranged and miserly relationship with his wife, his self-beneficial life choices that harm others, and his unfortunate and pitiful death, demonstrate horrible occurrences in a greed-filled lifestyle.

In Tom Walker’s life, his relationship with his wife reveals that his greed overcame the precious bond of marriage and continued to grow.
