The struggle that is caused by pride and confidence is one that is experienced by all, for it is natural, but letting it control oneself can be dangerous. This is also true for Fortunato, a character in Edgar Allan Poe’s short story, “The Cask of Amontillado”, and the narrator from James Hurst’s short story, “The Scarlet Ibis”.

Martin Luther King's purpose of the letter is to persuade his audience that segregation is immoral, and deprives them of their equal freedoms. In paragraph 24, he emphasizes the greatness of many individuals who sought out their beliefs such as he does.

One of the central themes of Mary Shelley's Frankenstein is that the “acquirement of knowledge” is something that is not only detrimental to human society, but also destructive to our very humanity. It is a theme that is hard to understand considering that the pursuit of knowledge is both noble and essential to our progressing as a human race, but it is one worth investigating as there is some element of truth in the statement. The idea that knowledge can be destructive is an old one. From the Garden of Eden to the dropping of the atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, humans have demonstrated our ability to use the knowledge we have gained for self-serving reasons. As a result, many people are distrustful of knowledge and groups, such as the “flat earth society” spring up from time to time as a reaction to our race becoming too smart too fast.

He believes that this cycle is a side effect of Great Brittan’s transformation in to a welfare state along with our culture of entitlement.

These horrors that King creates, along with other horror stories that various authors’ have written, are possibly just a way to make people feel better about the problems in their personal lives; in King’s book, Danse Macabre, King suggests just that by saying, "we make up horrors to help us cope with the real ones. With the endless inventiveness of humankind, we grasp the very elements which are so divisive and destructive and try to turn them into tools --to dismantle themselves" (Danse Macabre 13). This idea holds a high possibility of being true, at least for some people. He has also has demonstrated time and again the influence that terrible horrors can have on the family unit; he has shown that no matter how normal or strong a family is, there are things in this world, and the worlds he creates, that can and will tear a family apart. He has also shown that when people love each other, they tend to try and fix the problems that arise, however the outcome is sometimes unfavorable, such as in Pet Semetary.
