“His whispered word seemed to hang in the air: ‘Timshel’’’ (Steinbeck 602). In East of Eden by John Steinbeck, Adam Trask says one word to forgive Caleb and free him from feeling rejected. Adam shows that he is honorable through his actions and feelings. He is against violence, he serves his time, and he pays his debts. He feels remorse for sending men into the army and will not accept money earned from war.
Creon displays a contemptuous belief that his way is the only way. Teiresias the phrophet yet again forwarns Creon on his fateful mistake to punish Antigone. “Think: all men make mistakes, but a good man yields when he knows his course is wrong, and repaired the evil”(5.77). Creon doesn’t realize his misguided course until his moment of absolute disparity. People realizing their course is wearing long after they have made a faulty trek unfolds in many occurrences.
Society often sets roles and expects for everyone to conform to the common mold. Therefore, in “The Pupil” when one of characters does not fit the mold that is expected for society, he is presented as weak and inferior. In the passage from “The Pupil” Henry James uses an ironic tone, and a third person limited point of view in order to present the complexities in the relationships among the three characters to set a hierarchy among the characters. James establishes a tense tone as the young man is afraid of Mrs. Moreen and what could potentially happen in his future job.
Brutus seems to just be trying to justify his actions by stating that “I have the same dagger for myself,” meaning if he is incorrect he will pay. This statement from Julius Caesar explains why Brutus’ proclamation does not make him a strong leader. “It is easier to find men who will volunteer to die, than to find those who are willing to endure pain with patience.” It is easier to die than to face the consequences of what he has done. Brutus seems to be attempting to manipulate the audience into believing he did the “honorable” thing.

The story of Walker Roe and Riley Dutcher could have been easily written as a simple morality tale and, in a way, that 's what it is.

Not to mention when Danforth is asking if letting Proctor’s wife live longer, then will he drop the case. Proctor declines this agreement and seeks to free those he deems are falsely accused. As can be seen Proctor is a selfless man who will sacrifice what he loves for the betterment of others. Months of torture didn’t break Proctor’s will, and this is shown in great detail as John tears up his confession. As soon as Proctor is given the chance to live and abandon his friends, he is unsure.
There is a common consensus among them that a meaningful world can always be projected not through a process of mythos-making but rather through the operation of various versions of the same story in a certain text or the interaction of the text itself with other texts within it. Intertextuality has particularly permeated the theoretical framework of literary journalism. Julia Kristeva, Mikhail Bakhtin and Roland Barthes are among the major critics who seek to give a thorough definition of the term, “intertextuality.” According to Kristeva, “Any text is constructed as a mosaic of quotations; any text is the absorption and transformation of another.
