full introduction
Full Introduction
  • Geoffrey Chaucer once wrote, “The guilty think all talk is of themselves.” When one feels guilty of something, especially when the wrongdoing has yet to be confessed, life cannot go on comfortably for the average person. Instead, the guilty party walks around in fear that his or her secret will be revealed, suspicious, as Chaucer suggests, that those around already know. This is no way to live life, and Edgar Allan Poe knew this. In his short story “The Tell-Tale Heart,” Poe uses the eye, the heart, and the old man as symbols to help readers understand the detrimental effects of guilt.

  • Hemingway’s quote “a man can be destroyed but not defeated” truly does display the amount of determination that Santiago shows throughout his life, and we could all take a lesson from this.

  • No one’s life is without hardship. No one’s life sidesteps pain and suffering; however, if we learn to cope with that pain and suffering with grace, as Santiago did, our lives will be much more meaningful.
