Hamlet’s inner battle in his three soliloquies exposes the evolution of his experiences with and thoughts on morality, ultimately ending in bittersweet satisfaction and understanding. Hamlet’s first struggle with mortality is confronting his father’s death, and the anger he has towards his mother for marrying his uncle so soon after. This is highlighted in his first soliloquy: But two months dead: nay, not so much, not two: So excellent a king; that was, to this, Hyperion to a satyr; so loving to my mother That he might not beteem the winds of heaven Visit her face too roughly. Heaven and earth! (1.2.140-148) This marks the first time Hamlet confronts the subject of death in the play, and the first time he expresses himself without the confinement of an occupied environment.
He is asked to take his small son to bed. The poem begins, “The whiskey on your breath could make a small boy dizzy” (Roethke line 1) enlists the imagery of what the young boy was smelling as he most likely climbed aboard his fathers’ large work boots for the evening waltz to bed. It is obvious this is an evening ritual, one that is cherished. The boy is aware of his fathers’ waltzing abilities and he concedes that he is up for the challenge. The irony of the statement, “I hung on like death” (Roethke line 3) is a private one, yet deeply describes his yearning for one more waltz with his father who passed away when Theodore was only fifteen years ... ... middle of paper ... ...s his father tucks him into bed.
The novel opens with Pip in a church cemetery explaining the origin of his name and contemplating how his parents would look if they were alive. Early in the novel, Dickens begins setting up small parts of Pip’s identity by telling the reader that he is an orphan and that as a child he has a vivid imagination that allows him to envision his deceased parents based on their names. Subsequently, Pip encounters the convict, whom he calls “my convict” throughout the novel. This encounter places Pip into a situation in which he fears for his life after the convict threatens his life several times, but also reveals how innocent Pip is even though he constantly blames himself for any misfortune that occurs in his life. Little does Pip know, his meeting with the convict will change his life for the better and for worse.
In the beginning of the story, Faith is positively introduced, because she is a faithful wife, “the wife was aptly named” (304). When Goodman Brown leaves his home, he is not only leaving his wife Faith, but he is leaving his faith in God by joining the Devil. Because Goodman Brown is meeting the Devil, Goodman Brown is counting on his wife to redeem him, “she's a blessed angel on earth; and after this one night, I'll cling to her skirts and follow her to heaven” (305). After that, he meets with the Devil fifteen minutes behind schedule, because of his conversation with Faith, “Faith kept me back awhile" (306). Since faith represents his wife’s name and his faith in God, this statement proves to have two meanings.
Young Goodman Brown by Nathaniel Hawthorne Many authors have written and explained their views on how man struggles with the dilemmas of good and evil. None have quite taken it in to such an intricate setting as Nathaniel Hawthorne did in "Young Goodman Brown." All through the story Brown deals with his internal battle between his faith and the lure of the devil. As he leaves his home on the forest trail and attends the communion of the night Brown goes through several mental battles of good and evil which leave the reader wondering whether he actually lived through the experience or just imagined the whole thing. As Brown walks away from his new wife Faith he thinks himself to be wretch to leave her at such a time but then reassures his purpose by promising to, "cling to her skirts and follow her to heaven" (Hawthorne 311).

I didn’t have a say. It was fated when I was a child of just two or three that priesthood was my calling. Actually, it was mothers calling that I was to be a priest. She alone had set me on this path toward a life of spiritual obligation and self-sacrifice. By her decree, it was as assured as the rotation of the earth around the sun and water reaching it’s own level; as certain as my brother Zac’s destiny to become a doctor; and as inevitable as my sister Alice’s providence for marrying eventually into money, that I was to follow my uncle’s quiet footsteps and become a cleric of the Roman Catholic variety.
I am intrigued by the dream motif that surrounds some of the major actions at the birth and death of Jesus that the author(s) of Matthew uses. Joseph, the dreamer, of course, has several dreams during the birth narrative that guide his actions with Mary, 1:20, and his travels after Jesus is born 2:13 & 19. The wise men heed the caution of an apparent communal dream, 2:12, and leave Herod’s governing territory in silence. Even Pilot’s wife has a dream, 27:19, concerning the innocent prisoner, Jesus, her husband is about to condemn to death. These dreams seem to almost frame out Jesus life.
