Huckleberry Finn faces many ethical and moral situations that force him to decide between what he thinks is right based on his past and what his new knowledge makes him feel is right. Huck realizes that what he has known to be true is not what he thinks it is, and comes to the realization that things are not always what they seem. These epiphanies are critical to Huck 's development as his story continues beyond what any 13-year-old should ever need to face. Soon after Huck 's story begins, his absent and abusive father makes an appearance in Huck 's life in order to attempt to take over Huck 's $6000. When he was unsuccessful, Pap kidnaps Huck and they are living alone in a cabin in the woods.
One of the themes from Hernando Tellez 's “Just Lather that 's all” is that different humans have different abilities and capabilities to complete tasks in life. This theme relates to my life because I may think about many actions to fulfill a reaction, but it only goes as far as just a thought, but since life is very lengthy I may get frustrated and do actions without thinking about the consequences. The barber is struggling good and bad within himself, but his goodness overcomes his badness at the end, which shows by him not putting his thoughts into actions. The barber has a job of the town that he really cares about and is trying to take on abilities of the captain of killing which he is not capable of doing. On the other hand, the
It is a poem about a man who has reached a split in the road and has to make a choice on which way to go. He analyzes them and finds out that they are two similar paths. At the end of the poem, he finally makes his decision on which road to take. Robert Frost uses the help of nature poetry and the symbolism of two roads as to having to make those tough decisions in life. Robert Frost uses the concept of nature poetry perfectly in "The Road Not Taken."
Secondly, the poem “I Can Stand Him No Longer” also incorporates and develops the thematic topic of guiltiness all along. In the poem, the man states “A heavy conscience will always make what’s hidden revealed” In this situation, the man means to say that a strong feeling, in this case, guilt, can make what 's hidden revealed to everyone. So, the author uses an Oxymoron which in this case, is “conscience” to convey to the reader that there is a deeper level of truth in this sentence. And that by saying “conscience,” the author does not mean any random feeling but instead, is trying to signal the reader that the man is referring to the specific feeling of guiltiness. This is because a person’s actions are a result of his/her emotions and consequently, the person would do anything, without giving any second thought to what he/she is about to do, and that may lead to the revealing of something hidden such as secrets and etc.
He really wanted to please his dad by doing something no other man has done. Subsequently, as he is reflecting upon himself, he begins to feel like he is not good enough to live up to his dad expectations. Lastly, the tone of the text turns sorrow once he has to return home. He tries to make the reader feel bad for him since he has to return home unsuccessful. Also, since he is by himself, he is very lonesome and
Through contemplating if life or death is better, he talks about barring the whips and scorns of time and what will come after death. However, what seems to scare Hamlet the most, is the fear of the unknown, which ultimately prevents him from committing suicide. Again, Shakespeare is addressing this greater concern of humanity, the fear of death and the afterlife, the fear of the unknown that so many people had. Through having a character who is inherently mad deliver this truly thought provoking speech, Shakespeare showcases that quite literally anyone is/can be concerned with death and the unknown afterlife, despite their state of mind. Hamlet’s soliloquy addresses something many people feel/experience at one point, but Shakespeare also goes as far as demonstrating this obsession with death and the fear of the unknown, can go too far--as it eventually leaves Hamlet to true madness and ultimately causes his
Frodo 's not only relatable as a person but as a hero he 's also able to teach us how sometimes in life we have to do things even if we don 't want to. It comes time in our life where we are put in front of obstacles that back us up in a corner, we get stuck with having to make a decision about something that we can not just blow away, something that is of serious matter. Frodo teaches us that even though you don 't want to do something you sometimes must. Throughout the story Frodo wished that he never had the ring and that none of this happened, but it did, and he knew that he had to go through with his task and finish what he started. He knew that this journey would kill him, but he still did it, we know that sometimes the things we have to do can lead to something bad happening, but Frodo teaches us that whatever it is it doesn 't compare to what could happen.
This leads to be superstitious towards man. Another part in the book that leads Macbeth to be ambition and mechevieness is when he says,” Who should against his murderer shut the door, not bear the knife himself.” (1.3.128-142) What Macbeth is saying is, instead of going to Duncan 's castle to murder him, why don’t we just have him stay the night and kill him then. This is a really important part of the play because as the audience we know that Duncan will die or is being plotted against, but Duncan does not. This is major foreshadowing, and this is a turning point for Macbeth when he begins to go along with Lady Macbeth 's plan to murder King
The speaker predicts his own future uncertainty. He realizes that he will be inaccurate, at best, or hypocritical, at worst, when he holds his life up as an example for others to follow. The man dreads his future and his potential hypocrisy and this is shown in lines 16 and 17 when Frost writes “I shall be telling this with a sigh Somewhere in the ages and ages hence:” the sigh meaning that the man will regret never having never know the other path. In fact, he predicts that a future version of himself will betray this moment of decision as if the betrayal were unavoidable. Even as he makes a choice, one he is forced to make if decides to make progress and not stand forever at this fork in the road, one for which he has no true influences or
The main idea of the poem is that the speaker is confronted with this fork in the road and must choose which road to encounter, which is similar to when people choose a certain path in life. “I took the one less traveled by, and that has made all the difference.”- Frost People feel pressured to be popular, consequently, they follow the path instead of making their own path. Accordingly, Frost wrote “The Road Not Taken” from the experiences he has had throughout his lifetime. Hesitant he chooses to have a master 's degree in teaching in, even though people told him to master in poetry, due to, he had a knack for writing. Nevertheless, he became a teacher due to, he loves to help people find their way in life.
