“The Count Of Monte Cristo” by Alexandre Dumas. What are the lines which you thought were substantial to the continuous theme of “The Count of Monte Cristo?” Why did you think that?One line that I believed was pure resourcefulness from the author was when he wrote one-liners in this book that seemed to foreshadow the oncoming occasions and add onto the theme of the story. Among these lines were, “Hatred is blind, anger is foolhardy, and he who pours out revenge dangers having to consume a bitter draft.” This line was really effective in the sense that it foreshadows the series of occasions that occurs within the book. Edmond Dantes, the primary character of the book, was stripped of his innocence by 3 conspirators, which he had actually called buddies, and was sent to Chateau d’If, a notorious prison in which the worst bad guys go.
He miraculously got away, prospered, and looked for vengeance against these 3 males who had actually taken his youth and innocence and turned it into something awful … the Count of Monte Cristo, the sly, vindictive, inexplicably rich character which everybody is humbled by due to the fact that of his simple style and mystique. He speaks to his ex-fiance’s boy’s friend, Franz, who alerts Dantes ahead of time that everything that walks around occurs. This line implies that if one looks for to have his vengeance, he will get the disadvantages of what he does.
Dantes is still “blinded by hatred,” and states that only the poor and inept might spend for their discrepancies, but the abundant and clever are the ones that will always profit. He discovers later on in the book that his theory was not genuine in any sense, for he had a good deal of regret and remorse for what he had done and wanted to punish himself. However Haydee, his faithful servant, had actually liked him greatly, no matter what he had done, and provided him a factor to live, a reason to look for penance from God through living and repent throughout his life.
He found out that what his former buddy had actually told him would be what he needed to hear in the end. Another line is,”‘ And now,’ stated the man on the yacht, “goodbye to generosity, humankind and gratitude. Farewell to all beliefs that gladden the heart. I have actually substituted myself for Providence in rewarding the great; may the God of vengeance now yield me His place to penalize the wicked! ‘” This is where Edmond Dantes proclaims to the sky that he is to finally begin his road to revenge versus his conspirators.
But, as I had actually specified previously, he understands that he may not take the place of God or Providence and seal the fate of his aggressors. He must leave those tasks to God and God alone, for no human soul might bear the pressures of punishment and benefit without feeling guilty. His heart was heavy in the end, and he had submitted himself to the works of the devil instead of God. It is not in his hands to justify what is right, what is wrong, and how one can make the stability of good and wicked balanced, again.
Excellent and wicked are inexplicably intertwined that a person might not exist without the other. It resembles night and day, or darkness and light. This invokes one of my beliefs: Wherever there is light, there is something to cast a shadow. We can not avoid or pursue one or the other; they simply co-exist in each other’s world, unfailingly and unwillingly. In this world, there are 2 sides to everything that exists since that is simply the way everything was constructed. It just IS.
