In both works, the soldiers set aside their morals to overcome the horrors of war such as killing a man. This challenges their emotional endurance and has negative consequences on their mental disposition. Paul Bäumer, the protagonist in All Quiet on the Western Front, is put in a situation where he must suspend his ethics otherwise his supposed enemy, Gérard Duval, will murder him. This is the first time Paul has killed with his own hands, and “every gasp [of the enemy] lays [Paul’s] heart bare” (Remarque 221). He feels instant regret for his actions, and he “would give much if [Duval] would but stay alive” (Remarque 221).

Coming to the conclusion that Betty and Ruth have both been placed into a trance by the “Devil” and are disconnected with the outside world. Being the Devil’s first physical action against people, an immense amount of terror is manufactured. .This sickness then transforms into the first idea that the Devil is able “control” others, ultimately aiding his authority and command over the townsfolk. As well, in order to discover the truth, Parris and Putnam threaten Tituba with death. After listening to such violent repercussions, Tituba admits that she “don 't desire to work for him”(44) though implying contact between the Devil and herself.
He even brands himself with the letter A, a mark of his sins that he is only willing to reveal to himself until the end of the novel. He “stood on the verge of lunacy” (135), tortured by both himself and by Chillingworth. Even when he finally reveals his sin, he dies right after, admitting his cowardice in that he would rather die than experience public shame. He may have lived an easier life had he revealed his secret, but he was too focused on upholding his current moral righteousness that he could not bring himself to divulge his wrongdoings. His own shame was so strong that it led to
Hamlet first goes through the anger stage in the five stages and goes in and out of it throughout the play. During a scene in which Claudius and Polonius try to spy on him, Hamlet tells Ophelia to, “Get thee to a nunnery! why wouldst thou be a breeder of sinners?” (III.i.130-131). At this point in the play, Hamlet is feigning insanity to achieve his goal but is upset with everyone in the play. He takes this anger out on his lover, Ophelia.
Claudio now has to think about his best friend as well as his lover in making the decision of whether or not to marry. As much as he wants to love Hero, Claudio has to think about his best friend because he does not want to hurt Benedick. Also, when two people are in a relationship of love, there is always someone trying to break the relationship up. In this play, that is Don John. When he is scheming up a plan to break the two lovers up, he says “Only to despite them I will endeavor anything” (Shakespeare 61).
Each claim made by Jonathan Edwards motivates the audience to stop serving Satan in order to escape the “very misery to all eternity” that is Hell. The ideas presented in Jonathan Edwards’s Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God, are intensified by the use of rhetorical devices. Edward’s successfully preaches to his Puritan audience about the horridness of God’s wrath with the use of rhetoric. Sermons, such as Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God, contributed to the redirecting of the

But at that moment he felt willing to change, because he lived a sinful life, and ask God to save him, a dramatic moment where he felt lost and asked for mercy. Everyman realized that his fortune material had no value and that it was more important the fortune of God. Everyman acts representing humanity, fighting for morality inside, although he thinks that death is evil because it comes from hell. Death is ironically a messenger of God. Everyman had discovered that while he was successful in life, the afterlife was a different story because his wealth could not go with him or count in the Book of life.
In Ethan Frame there are three major opinions held by the main character, Ethan Frame. These beliefs ultimately lead to his demise towards the end. These three opinions are that he should prioritize his life over others, any man that is attempting to call upon a the debutante is a direct threat to him and his family, and that dying with the ones you love is better than risking a life apart from them. These three opinions ultimately fabricate the ironic situation whereabouts he is living with his companion, Zen, and the woman, Mattie, who had become paralyzed in their attempt to run away from Zen. Specifically, the first obvious outlook that leads in a destructive direction is that Ethan’s wellbeing is more important than all and sundry else’s.
Though the way one might accept his fate may appear involuntary, Victor Frankl claims that man has a choice to hold on to his faith. Elie Wiesel’s relative, Stein, for example, chose to give up on faith and his life when he realized his wife and children were dead.

This shows how it is man’s choice to give into all the pain they
