He curses the day of his birth as well as the night of his conception, stating “Why is life given to those who find it so bitter?” (p.512). Although Job announces some controversial questions, his faith continues to insist that God does know what is best for humans, he simply wants to know and understand God’s agenda, as asked “Why should the sufferer be born to see the light?”. Job had great confidence concerning his goodness, though challenged by his friends as they ignorantly assume that one only suffers if he has committed sin. More specifically, Eliphaz further claims that every human commits sin in God’s perspective, “Can a human being be righteous before God, a mere mortal pure before
Dante's adventure clearly shows that the souls of hell are punished, as I thought. Punishments range from living in filth to painful tortures. Dante expands his idea of hell being made up of circles that descend based on sin. While this idea makes sense, I have never been exposed to that thought. This concept creates constant surprises and extremely interesting imagery.
Also he says “you hang by a thread with the flames of divine wrath flashing about it and it and ready every moment to singe it” meaning that if sinners keep sinning the flames of hell will burn the only string they have to righteousness. He also tells them that if they keep disobeying God that he would “withdraw his hand, they would avail no more to keep you falling than the thin air” and at any moment that God feels as though you do not deserve to be in heaven he will drop you to the pits of hell. In addition, Edward also uses powerful diction that emphasizes God’s power. For example, he is a “sovereign” and has complete control over mankind. God is also very “discontent” he sees that mankind is not following the puritan community and feels as though they shall be punished by not being accepted into heaven but sent to hell, lastly God was “inconceivable”.
Dante was also a politician, while he was in Rome much of the city was destroyed, the Pope banished him from Florence unless he were to pay a fine even though he was innocent of such sin (wiki). In Inferno, poem written by Durante (Dante) Alighieri, Dante is a character who travels alongside another on a quest through all parts of hell and the different sins that place humans in them. Dantes use of rhetoric and his vacillating tone make his poem interesting and unforgettable. In Inferno, Dante talks about the parts of hell and the different punishments to go with all kinds of sins.The writer purpose is to alarm and terrify his audience, and anybody who has taken part in sinning to help them become less sinful. To begin, Dante has shown he is credible when we was exiled from his home town due to someone else sins.the poems intended audience is all the people on earth.
He’s letting the congregation know that once you’re over hell you can’t find a way to save yourself from going in. Last example is also located in paragraph three, Edwards says to the congregation, “There is nothing between you and hell but the air; it is only the power and mere pleasure of God that holds you up” (Edwards 3). He’s telling them that God is the one who decides if you go to hell or not. Jonathan Edwards uses anaphora for an affect. He’s trying to let them know that hell is a real place and they can end up there if they keep sinning so they need to be aware of what they’re doing.
Hamlet speculates that the ghost may be sent from Hell in order to entice him into committing sins, and thus Hamlet will suffer damnation. This fear of being sent to Hell stays with Hamlet for the rest of the play. As the play goes on and more murders are committed, Hamlet feels as if revenge may be sending him to hell
This quote turns out to be dramatic irony because it is evident that he is going to curse himself if he finds out the murderer is closed to him. The hidden message is that he is closer than he thinks because he is the Laius’ murderer. “I call down this curse in the gods’ name: let no crop grow out of the earth for them, their wives bear no children. Rather let them be destroyed by the present plague, or something even worse. But to you people of Thebes who approve of my action I say this: May justice be our ally and all the gods be with us forever” (Sophocles 16).
Meph warns Faustus to not take the idea of hell lightly as “till experience change thy mind” shows to the reader that Meph’s own experience is proof of the repulsive image that is hell as he is “damned, and am now in Hell”. The fact that Meph uses this could show to the reader that Mephastophilis is actually warning Faustus of his actions with his gritty and
When he heard Apollo’s prophecy, he could have calmly investigated the murder of King Laius, but in his hastiness, he cursed the murder, and in so, cursing himself. “I pray that that man’s life be consumed in evil and wretchedness. And as for me, this curse applies no less” (Sophocles 13). Oedipus’ desire to know the truth about Laius’ murder and the mystery surrounding his birth, led Oedipus to his realization of his doings. Although multiple people tried to stop him from pursuing the truth, he is unable to.
