While I do think he achieves these feelings as he progresses, I believe he only scratches the surface of what it means to truly be selfless or brave. He only develops these qualities because his irresponsible actions cause the death, directly or indirectly, of five people. Yes, he accepts his actions at some point, but he does so because of extreme circumstances.

Simon became his last chance to make everything back into right track and requested a peaceful death. Another instance demonstrated Karl’s repentance was that he remembered he shot the family to death when they jumping out from the window of the burning house.

This scene engraved in his mind deeply since he felt guilty toward the family which broke him down mentally and making him unable to move, led to his injury.

And I did it for seven long nights-- every night just as midnight --but I always found the eye closed,” (Poe, 1843). This is compelling because the main character committed first-degree murder.
Which just shows the problem he 's having with his identity and inner vision is deep. That does also explain why everytime he looks at the old man he became irritated and felt like it was necessary to get rid of the eye.
