To have this impressed onto one's mind certainly would make them go a little mad. No matter what would happen to them, this image would haunt them forever. Seeing all of these people die would also make them think more about themselves and making sure this didn’t happen to them. On page 5 Kiowa says, “Come on, man, talk,” and later says, “Talk.” This is another demonstration of the impressions on a soldier’s mind.
He knows what is right and wrong but one example has been haunting him in his life. Now in a Puritan society, sin had to have been confessed publicly and they must bear their shame. This however goes against what the Word actually says and this is what created Arthur Dimmesdale as a character. He most likely has already repented to God but his guilt will not leave until he confesses it to his congregation and it leads him to other “ways” of repentance. Being reminded of his guilt 24/7 causes his his health to deteriorate to the point of death, possibly alluding to the fact that the wages of sin are death.

The main character makes many decisions in this story that he ends up regretting once it comes back to bite him. He is with his friends and showing off, trying to be tough, but when it comes down to it he cannot handle the repercussions of his actions. “I contemplated suicide, wondering if I’d need bridgework, scraped the recesses of my brain for some sort of excuse to give my parents. . .” (Boyle 534).

Montag may have only burned Beatty because he was an obstacle, but the repercussions of this event makes it a renewing use of fire. Beatty is released from his life filled with burden, which is what makes this positive.

Montag brings this up while they are in the firetruck and Beatty explains that Latimer said this to Nicholas Ridley as they were being burnt alive.
When his father died, he is in a deep depression, in which he even considers suicide, wishing that his “too too solid flesh would melt”. However, what makes him different from Zhuangzi is that he has a fear of death at the same time. Apart from his fearfulness of spiritual awe because of suicide, he is always in a strange position of both wishing for death and fearing it intensely.

It is obviously Hamlet’s uncertainty and fear about the afterlife that stops him from killing himself.

Being engulfed in flames has many different meanings depending on how you approach it. Such as an enlightening biblical experience like the burning bush of Moses, the feeling of panic or stress while choking in the smoke, like the witch hunts of time past with people surrounded by old friends who wish to feed off their death, or when a sudden stroke of inspiration or anger seizes your heart, sending it into an irascible frenzy with a burning passion.
