RESEARCH PAPER EVERYMAN Christol Council Liberty University August 19, 2012 Thesis The play “Everyman” uses characters that are spiritual to tell the story of Everyman. Everyman has to give an account of his life no one can stand with us before God we have to stand alone. Everyman realizes that death is inevitable and man has to an account for his sins. Everyman often does not think of their spiritual life, but in the end finds way to repent of their sins. The summons of Death makes Everyman realize he is not ready to die and does not want to take the journey alone, but ultimately has to stand alone.
This is why he said: "And when he had lived long, and was borne to his grave...they carved no hopeful verse upon his tombstone, for his dying hour was gloom." In The Birthmark Hawthorne uses humans (specifically men) as transmitters of evil. In the story, Aylmer has his own flaws or imperfections which contribute to the flaws or imperfections of his wife Georgiana. Therefore it is not only the women that Hawthorne uses as a sign for evil. He possesses woman with flaws but as I just said, he also gives men the role of transmitters of evil.
He was summoned by a nurse to hear the dying confessions of an SS Nazi soldier. The soldier wanted forgiveness on behalf of all Jewish people for the things he had done to their fellow brothers. He asked for forgiveness as he was dying because he was afraid that his soul would not be able to rest eternally unless he was forgiven. Simon tries continuously to leave the room in fear of his own life, and also because of his learned hatred of Nazis. He stays and listens to the dying man out of pity and also because the soldier asks and begs him not to leave.
Everything is Not What it Seems Part 1 (Theme): Deception Deception seems to occur on every page of the Summoning of Everyman, printed by John Skot. The play begins with God informing us that Everyman has deceived him by living his life loving riches instead of worshipping and acknowledging the Lord. God sends Death to summon Everyman to his reckoning, and Death informs him that he can bring along whoever or whatever he sees beneficial to him. After Everyman learns this, he begs several people in his life to join him on his journey. They all agree until they find out that Everyman will not be returning.

The depiction of the characters of the mayor and townspeople exhibits a most chaotic town full of disorder and its main cause - the residents’ selfishness and indifference for each other. When the mayor heard about the intentions of the brothers and found them at a meat store, all he did was stopping them from killing Santiago. He did not interrogate them on their intention and by stating to Clotilde Armenta ‘No one is arrested just on suspicion. Now it’s a matter of warning Santiago Nasar, and happy new year.’(p 57), he revealed his lack of concern for the man in jeopardy and the laws of the town. The reason behind his nonchalant reaction to something so serious was fairly unclear.
The narrator in “Tell-Tale Heart” lost his composure after he murdered the old man, in contrast to when Rainsford murdered General Zaroff. After the narrator murders the old man and visitors come to the house, he still hears the heart of the old man beating. As he talks to the visitors, it seems to him that the heart beat gets louder and louder to the point where he loses self-control and admits to the deed. However, after Rainsford wins the most dangerous game he clearly keeps his serenity. Instead of showing any guilt, Rainsford actually seems to be more at peace after he pulls the trigger.
A reasonable expectation of privacy is the kind of expectation any citizen might have with respect to any other citizen. Evaluate the moral permissibility of “suicide by cop.” There's no moral-permissibility. Because it's very simple, you're killing yourself, at the expense someone else. Taking a life always costs a person something, even if it's a 'righteous kill', you'll remember the people you killed, the rest of your life. That's why all suicides are morally questionable, because next to your family, and social-circle, the paramedics, the police, the coroner, they all lose something, in having to clean you up.
Being an ‘Outsider’ to the society he lives in, he is inherently in dispute with all voices of society and hence, also the spiritual leaders he comes in contact with when imprisoned for murder. Being an antagonist to the norms of society, he effectively becomes the protagonist of the book. Although readers do see Meursault meeting a priest at his mother’s funeral, since he remains absolutely unaffected by his presence, Meursault’s first effective encounter with a religious figure is in
