man and man vs. nature. From before the start of this story, Ulrich and Georg are sworn enemies sought to cause the demise of the other, and there is an evident conflict between them. But, the story is set in a dark forest, during a storm, and this would be an example of a man vs. nature conflict. The second storm complicates the situation in the second paragraph, when the storm causes a beech tree to land on the two characters. They are unable to move, and both must wait for their own men to arrive and rescue him.
So it is no coincidence that while he is questioning where his faith is that is when he sees the darkest and most evil part in the forest. In “A Good Man Is Hard To Find,” the forest where the family gets shot is also dark. They disappear into the darkness before they get shot. In both stories the darkness is where the evil act is committed or where the characters come to a large realization. Such as the grandmother realizing her son was dead and Young Goodman Brown becoming unsure of his
Both characters seem to strongly despise one another yet they both also despise themselves for their wrong and disastrous actions. The vivid similarities between these characters is driven by their isolation from paternal figures and society. In pursuit of his scientific studies, Victor admits that he “seemed to have lost all soul or sensation but for this one pursuit" (Shelley 38). Not only are the two characters both subjugated from society through their own personal choice, but they also share interest in the mysteries of the natural world. They both admire nature for its serenity and beauty.
During Ophelia’s funeral, the drama between Hamlet and Laertes magnifies which causes more hate between their families. Laertes provokes Hamlet into fighting him by Ophelia’s grave, with their families there to witness, by saying “[t]he devil take thy soul” (V, i, 243). Following this mishap, Laertes is informed by Claudius of a strategy to end Hamlet’s life in the near future. This immoral conflict being conducted in a place that already is commemorating death displays that they are inclined to cause more people to die. This plot to kill Hamlet is not beneficial to Hamlet’s success and only weakens his personal plot to kill Claudius.

This story is considered as Gothic. Gothic literature includes elements that include Horror and Humanity. The high level of literary horror in ‘A Rose for Emily’ is so monstrous it is magnificent, presenting a purity of unreasonableness that no reader can resist.
Works are pervaded by a threatening feeling, a fear enhanced by the unknown. As it can be checked in the explained characteristics, suspense lies in open connection with the state of uncertainty, tension and anxiety… in some cases unbearable without a
The sky was so overcast that night came two hours earlier than usual. My guide was a peasant who walked beside me along the narrow road, under the vault of fir trees, through which the wind in its fury howled. Between the tree tops, I saw the fleeting clouds, which seemed to hasten as if to escape some object of terror. Sometimes in a fierce gust of wind the whole forest bowed in the same direction with a groan of pain, and a chill laid hold of me, despite my rapid pace and heavy clothing. "We were to sup and sleep at an old gamekeeper's house not much farther on.
By cheating on Rose with Alberta, he may have found short term happiness but in the long term he caused Rose more pain. And of course this pain seeped through to other people, leading them to lose their respect for Troy. The downward spiral of Troy life proved to be through his decisions and his actions.

Almost more impatient however is my son, Telemachus. He misses his father dearly and is furious at the suitors for disrespecting me as well as Odysseus 's honor in his own home. He said that "the men are eating through all they have, courting his mother, and using his house as if it were theirs to wreck and plunder" (Homer 723). He has left on a mission to find his lost father. I was angry that he went behind my back but even more so, I worry for his safety.

People never thought that he could get the most popular girl, but he was nice and truthful to her
The central idea of "The Interlopers" is developed when Ulrich von Gradwitz and Georg Znaeym, two long-time foes, are forced to put aside their bitter feud and cooperate with one another for the sake of survival after a tree had collapsed on them during a storm. According to pages 364 and 365, because of how much pain Ulrich was in, he realized how foolish the quarrel was and that there were better things to do in life than fight over a strip of forest. Furthermore, on page 365, Ulrich von Gradwitz and Georg Znaeym become friends. This means that life is precious, too precious to waste it fighting for three generations with your neighbor over forest land.
