She began to receive rewards form various of people and places, "Rosa parks received many accolades during her lifetime, including the NAACP's highest award"(history). Even though, Parks was doing the right thing by taking action and joining a movement it wasn't always easy for her. "It is not necessarily easy to be a living legend" (Henderson 191). Till this day many people learn from her and are amazed on how Rosa Parks became the legend she still is
The reverend claims that he has infringed, “the sanctity of a human heart,” (17.21). Only some sins are capable of doing this and by doing so, the physician has pushed the minister to the breaking point and played a major role in his death. Even after Dimmesdale died, Chillingworth still wants to torture him even though,"thou hast escaped [him],”(23.28). Who would want to do more harm after death? Roger Chillingworth would and has done this.
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.
Parables mean a simple story that illustrates a moral or religious lesson. A parable is an illustrate thrown alongside the truth to make people understand it more to just make is less difficult. The three parables were the sins of humanity is the greatest sin which is society hides and ignores, the ministers is to carry the source of sins committed by others like Jesus died for sins and last not but not least you can't hide your sins from God or any kind of secrets. Everyone in this world has done something has been wrong by doing something to their partner, family, or anything that is not the right thing to do by breaking laws or anything. People believe that they can get away with their sins just because someone doesn't know but no God knows and it will always stick with you.
This revelation solves Chillgworth's suspicions about who Hester committed her sin with, thus, his need for revenge increases. Dimmesdale is also affected by the scarlet letter. He too is guilt of adultery since he committed the act with Hester. Because he did not admit his part, he tortured himself mentally and physically. He whips himself with scourges and has vigils that include visions of Hester, Pearl, and the scarlet letter.
Chillingworth and Dimmesdale committed two completely different sins. One major difference between the sins was that Chillingworth’s sin was directed to hurt and pain another person. Dimmesdale simply committed adultery out of passion and love for another. Dimmesdale also felt an immense amount of guilt and pain for the sin he did. Chillingworth felt no guilt for what he was doing to Dimmesdale and sinned time after time again, eventually leading Dimmesdale to kill himself.
Its believable because he knows it was the right thing to do. “Because I lie and sign myself to lies”(Miller 4.727). Proctor can barely handle the thought of signing his name in a permanent lie that will affect him forever. The act of ripping up the thing that will save his life is also very believable because he wants to prove to elizabeth that he regrets his affair. John can never forgive himself for what he did to Elizabeth so he feel that when he rips the paper Elizabeth with truly forgive him.
It is a fraud. I am not that man...My honesty is broke, Elizabeth; I am no good man. Nothing's spoiled by giving them this lie that were not rotten long before...Let them that never lied die now to keep their souls. It is pretense for me, a vanity that will not blind God nor keep my children out of the wind...” As you can see by telling the truth and being honest, it caused the witchcraft hysteria in
Extremism is a plague of the human mindset that typically leads to suffering, and it must be acknowledged and kept in check so society can prosper. Religions are typically blamed for causing extremists to perform their horrific acts, and they are not completely to blame. Religion can bring out extremists and give them a goal or idea to follow, but it does not create the mindset. Humans have possessed a natural tendency to take things to the extremes, as evidenced by the Crusades and and the American Revolution. In general, these human tendencies lead to a useless loss of life.
It is a terrible, agonizing moment, even in description, but in the depths of his pain Oedipus is magnificent. He does not submit passively to his woe or plead that he committed his foul acts in ignorance, though he could be justified in doing so. He blinds himself in a rage of penitence, accepting total responsibility for what he did and determined to take the punishment of exile as well. As piteous as he appears in the final scene with Creon, there is more public spirit and more strength in his fierce grief and his resolution of exile than in any other tragic hero in the history of the theater. Oedipus unravels his life to its utmost limits of agony and finds there an unsurpassed grandeur of
