By toppling over this hurdle, Hamlet tries to find reasons why he does not have the tenacity for revenge. Running from the jaws of fate, Hamlet continually defies his solemn oath to his father. Even though a person tries to avoid the beast, they don't understand that it dominates their life. It is in places where they would least expect it. In Hamlet's case this problem is something that he can not just simply avoid; not only does it dominate his life but it starts to take over his conscious state like a "poison".
Henry thinks very poorly of himself at this point and really anyone would run from a war, I don't think he was ready. The second time Henry's flaw is evident is in chapter 12 when Henry tries to stop a man to ask what is going on with the battle since he ran away. The man was also trying to get away and hit Henry on the head with his rifle. This is evidence of his flaw because if he hadn't run away then he wouldn't have to bother this man. Henry is also too afraid to go back without any knowledge of what happened.
This destruction makes it more available for him to grow from his experience and share his experiences with others, but that initial shock of his physical and spiritual death and rebirth, startles Elie. In Safran Foer’s Everything Is Illuminated the novel begins and ends with physical destruction that leads to the creation... ... middle of paper ... ... Destruction is universal. By experiencing destruction and reacting to it humans create something new in lieu of the destruction. Destruction can be described as destruction of physical things, destruction of youth, and destruction of humanity, both the characters in Everything is Illuminated and Elie Wiesel in his memoir Night, experience the destruction of all of these. Destruction exists constantly in daily life, one’s reaction to the destruction and grows from it that defines him as a person.
59). In this instance Frodo cannot throw the ring into the fire with the intention to destroy it. The reason he cannot do this is because he has already started to become corrupt with its power.

Throughout Frodo’s journey he is faced with temptation to use the ring’s power of invisibility to hide from his enemies.
The tension of great fear that builds up inside him at that very moment, is when a decision had to be made. To or not to accept the call.

Logan knew that there was no way that he would be able to actually “ connect” with another mutant of his own kind, or anyone for that matter because he doesn’t trust anybody. Until he had met Rogue.
Chillingworth finally sees the atrocity in his actions, but ignores his own conscious and continues his evil-doings. He is a hypocrite to himself in that hr vhooses to be something he isn’t or shouldn’t be. This choice consumes him; this being a point the book is trying to make. When Dimmesdale reveals his secret, Chillingworth yells “there was no place… - Where thou couldst escaped me, -save on this very scaffold!” (Hawthorne 226). Chillingworth shows his hypocrisy again through his berating Dimmesdale for keeping his secret with Hester when he has his own dark secret that he wouldn’t dare tell.

During the first part of the play, he is tempted to repent and break from his contract but then he becomes deluded and tempted by the great power he possibly could have. If he had repented, perhaps he would be closer to the knowledge he seeks than he is in his alliance with Lucifer. Thus, it seems that Faustus' greed is what corrupts him and not merely the power. He has the power to do great things but he has no interest in his aspirations anymore. He is just greedy to obtain the forbidden knowledge which he will, ironically, never be able to learn due to turning away from the one who holds it all.
