He is saying that he left everything for his relentless search of knowledge and forgetting about his physical. I think that his suffering is do to the doubts that he had about life. When Victor gave life to the monster, he couldn’t believe the appearance of the monster that he just run away. This was another problem that caused his suffering because of his absences on taking care of the creature. Because of his lack of human appearance, society making something bad awake inside him rejects the monster.
You are their enemy in this life and down there with the dead. And soon their double curse-your father's and your mother's- will lash you out of Thebes on terror-stricken feet. With these lines, Oedipus starts to question his life and history inside but does not reflects it to the people. In fact, he is shocked because of that situation but he can't run away from the truth.
He must deny this because he is more than just a symbol of despair, he has feelings. He feels for all of the terrible events are happening in the setting of this book and he doesn't want to world to be afraid of him. Therefore, saying he doesn't wear a black robe can make people truly think that death isn't evil. Black is used throughout the story many times to symbolize sadness, despair, and a much deeper emotion that people can not express but can
Isolation is a very sad thing. There are two ways it can go. Either someone can just deal with it and be lonely and sad, or that person can make it into a positive thing. In the Giver, Jonas is getting very isolated with his community, first Jonas refuses to go back to the annex room, then he stops taking the pills, then the game of war, and last he knows about the release. All of these, changes jonas in many ways.
'I don't have any fun at home. I hate to go to school. I like to camp out. You won't take me back home again, Snake-eye, will you?'.” The boy obviously didn't want to go home because he didn't like his lifestyle because it was to boring and being out in the woods was an adventure to him that he didn't want to end.
Having to leave his men and fellow soldiers behind with the antagonistic or opposing sniper who is portrayed as the evil in the world leaves him distraught which is why he enlists in several tours. He brings his bible wherever he goes and it’s difficult to know whether it is for protection or absolution, or to validate his purpose. He can’t allow for the ‘wolf’ or the evil in the world go unpunished and must right the wrong according to his belief. It’s an obsession, not a job because of how much he thinks about his adversary and how he won’t settle down until his mission is completed. His need for control causes the desire to go back right away.
This will make them feel trapped, and less likely to contradict their controller or stand up for themselves. Take the rumours about Boo Radley for example. In Maycomb, a small town where everybody knows everybody, Boo Radley disappeared from the public eye and instantly became the subject of terrible rumours. If he ever needed help and tried to seek it from the people of Maycomb, it is very unlikely that anyone would help him due to how he was viewed: a troubled man who could be a potential threat to society. When Atticus says that there are many other ways of making people into ghosts, he means that it does not have to be physical intimidation.
And now true son has nowhere to go, he is going to be a very lonely and upset boy. So I think true son is going to live on his own for a while and try to live with other families but I do not think anyone is going to expect or take him. As he lives on his own I think he could die of hunger or end up killing himself because he is so lonely and both of his family hate him. As and example the whites would kill him if he tried to go back.
Even Though he acts like a traveler but he did not want to see the things that he has seen, because of that he feels despair. In the essay A Tale of Tub
The punishment is not settling enough nor worth it, they are just pushing weights before them in the Circle. Furthermore, this wouldn’t teach them a lesson about the wrongdoings that they have done. Another part of their punishment is they won’t be recognized by anyone because they have failed to accomplish something great for Humankind. For instance, Virgil tells Dante, “vain thought thou entertainest; the undiscerning life which made them sordid now makes them unto all discernment dim.” (Line 52-54).
Nathaniel Hawthorne’s “The Minister’s Black Veil” begins on a Sunday morning “Sabbath-day” before church in the small town of Milford MA. The sexton rings the bell calling all the parishioners forward for church. The church begins to fill as any normal Sunday although this turns out to be anything but an ordinary day. When it becomes time to go before the congregation Reverend Mr. Hooper walks into church. The sexton and the entire congregation is stunned because today Reverend Hooper enters the church with a black veil covering his face.
To begin The Skeletons in God’s Closet, Butler includes a foreword written by Rick McKinley, a fellow church member. McKinley addresses the common misconception people have that God is not really good because he allows Hell, judgment, and holy war. McKinley assures the reader that Butler is a great person to address these issues because he has known Butler for over a decade, and Butler is an experienced missionary and theologian. Butler then begins with the introduction. In the introduction, Butler outlines many topics that will be delved into in the novel.
In my level of Hell, “Andy’s Inferno” sinners are punished for unforgivably being Duke fans in their first lives which is very similar to that of the first circle of hell, Limbo, punishing the virtuous pagans in The Inferno by Dante Alighieri,. First, Limbo relates to my personal vision of Hell by both containing souls of sinners that were unenlightened to a more powerful source in their first lives when in The Inferno the Poet says, “…for they lacked Baptism’s grace, which is the door of the true faith you were born to. Their birth fell before the age of the Christian mysteries, and so they did not worship God’s Trinity in the fullest duty. I am not one of these” (Alighieri 4. 34-39).
The first thing I learned was how keeping a secret from everyone destroys a person. “This feeble and most sensitive of spirits could do neither, yet continually did one thing or another, which intertwined, in the same inextricable knot, the agony of heaven-defying guilt and vain repentance” (Page 144). This quote is showing how Dimmesdale’s guilt and secret is destroying him, and turning him into a madman of sorts. I think this lesson still hold true in our society today. A majority of people have a very strong conscious, and when they are guilty of something, or they have a major secret and they don’t tell anyone, it will tend to destroy the person.
