According to Shakespeare (ii.i 292-295) “Here, Claudio, I have wooed in thy name, and fair Hero is won. I have broke with her father and his goodwill obtained. Name the day of marriage, and God give thee joy.” This quote shows that Don Pedro is the one who helped Claudio to apparently win Hero’s heart. Claudio couldn’t do it himself because he is immature like a kid. Last but not least, they didn’t communicate with each other.
When he reemerges to Peter, Humlum mirrors Jesus with his sacrifices and divine interventions to guide Peter. Hoeg characterizes Oscar Humlum as a Christ-like guardian angel that appears to Peter in times of need and provides him with the wisdom and strength to persevere. Hoeg portrays Humlum as Christ with overwhelming references to light and awareness, where Humlum acquires a divine aurora. He describes Humlum as a “passive resistance against the dark” (171) and credits him with causing light to grow and emanate from the trees and school upon his appearance. Interpreted symbolically, Humlum can be viewed as Christ from his ability to divinely shed awareness and hope in the same way
When Mr. Borowski states “‘I’m not going to unload it! I can’t take any more” (13), this reveals that he has been pushed to his limits, that he can barely grasp what it means to be human anymore. After leading so many people to their deaths, he simply wants it to stop and almost gives up hope. On the other hand, Clendinnen describes Primo Levi as someone who “was to find both personal peace and a way back to society not through the social activity of talking but the private one of writing…” (34). Furthermore, in Maus II, Art’s father is always hopeful and does everything he can to prevent his wife from dying, whether it’s providing her with more food or to move her to a safer location, he does this all for her sake.
John had explicitly called the rockets “fool things” and threw out all of Homer’s rocket building tools in the pouring rain, saying it’s “right where they belong.” The amount of discouragement and impertinence these actions hold is beyond imaginable. Additionally, when Homer’s father said “I've been mad as hell at you. But it's the first time in your life I've been ashamed of you.” Imperils Homer’s emotional and mental well being a substantial amount. Especially when one knows the odds of becoming successful coming from a town like ‘Coalwood’ is little to slim. In spite of this, Homer managed to be persistent throughout his work, and with indefatigability continued to pursue his dream.
Father James encourages the weak, as shown when he tries to help Dylan Moran's character Michael, a wealthy business man in coping with his lack of mortality. He also does his best not to cast judgement towards others beyond the requirements beyond his
He thought if he could help marry Romeo and Juliet together, that he would get the recognition for stopping the feud between the two houses. If he could do this, he would become very wealthy and recognized in the city of Verona, therefore he attempted, but it strongly backfired. He tells Romeo that, “In one respect I’ll thy assistant be, For this alliance may so happy prove To turn your households' rancor to pure love”.
All throughout the story Tom and his wife seem to argue very much. Tom never wanted to please his wife and would never try or do anything to please her. Also, both Tom and his wife were so miserable in their marriage they cheated on eachother. “... with the loss of his wife, for he was a man of fortitude. He even felt something like gratitude towards the black woodsman, who, he considered had done him a kindness.” This quote explains how cheerful was upon realizing the devil had taken his wife and felt as if the devil did him a favor.
However, he is rewarded because before he leaves Juliet asks him if, “Thy purpose marriage?” (2.2.151). Romeo’s value for love motivates him to make a rash decision. Even though it was not a level-headed decision Romeo was rewarded with love, the value and reason he made the decision. This encourages Romeo to make more similar decisions out of love, which is shown through his suicide. It is human nature to try to keep doing what leads to success, therefore encouraging the values that are used to achieve these successes.
In Popol Vuh the gods try many times to create the perfect human. When they used mud, their creations dissolved into the water. When they used wood, their creations could speak, “But there was nothing in their hearts and nothing in their minds, no memory of their mason and builder”(Popol Vuh 81). The gods were angry about this because if the wood people could not remember their creators, the gods would not be worshipped. They destroyed these creations in very gruesome ways, one of the methods of destroying them being a flood.
His mind has not yet been tainted or brainwashed into believing what his father, and the bigger part of the community believe. Because of all this, he’s able to learn new things and think for himself.
