Diltej Singh Does Suffering lead to wisdom? Through life if there is one thing that everyone sees, it’s suffering. All of us have seen it, if you have not you will in time. Even the short stories that we have read this year we have also seen it in them.
It’s hard to see people go through that suffering, but do people gain any knowledge from that suffering. Through the short stories that we have actually read this year, we have actually seen on many events that it did not.
One of those times remains in the narrative ‘The Discus Thrower’ we see that the male remains in much discomfort, and clearly is suffering and yet he is mean to the nurse and makes them do things that they shouldn’t need to do. Another story that had suffering was ‘The Yellow Wallpaper’ we see her suffer and not as soon as do we see her stop and think about what she is doing why. We just see her going crazy. The last story we see suffering is in ‘The School’, we see that theirs is constant death in the story they don’t understand what to do after so they keep purchase and getting brand-new things to replace the feelings they had they had for the animals, people, and plants.
So they aren’t gaining anything The guy in the Discus thrower is clearly suffering he his “skin is not brown from the sun. It rusted, rather, in the last phase of consisting of the repellent repose within. And the blue eyes are frosted, looking inward like the windows of snowbound home. He is blind. The man is also legless; his best leg was missing out on from the mid-thigh down and left from listed below the knee.” With all these impairments, he is still is asks the medical professional to get his shoes “with the least quantity of irony.” You wonder why he asking for them despite the fact that he has no feet.
He makes the nurse clean eggs that he threw at the wall and he does this each and every single day. You anticipate someone in this circumstance to be more caring, looking at life in different point of views, think about something different they need to have done and maybe things would have ended up in a various method. However rather we see him act different then we would see anyone else in his place. Then we see the nurse cheering and then we learn that he died. He leaves behind absolutely nothing but bad experience and memories for the nurses. He produced nothing however a bad experience for himself. Throughout this entire story we do not see any form of wisdom when.
The women from yellow wallpaper may not be suffering physically but is suffering mentally. She’s told that she can’t do anything imaginative or enjoyable. All she can do is lay in bed. Slowly she is suffering, she is psychologically warring down. She we see her going psychologically crazy. She begins looking at the wall and see shapes and after that eventually she sees a figure in the wall. At the end of the story she goes bananas by locking the door and tells her partner that the secret is at the front door. And when he comes and he faints and she tore as much wallpaper as she could and she herself was on the on ground crawling’s.
As we see that she goes crazy and she gets no wisdom. We ended of her crawling over him so we know anything can happen after that. We see that in the school they plainly have lost many things to death and they do not attempt to find out why everything is passing away but keep replacing them with other things just to get the emotions and sensations back. In the story trees, salamander, exotic fish, Edgar, mother and fathers, Matthew and Tiny die for one reason or another, they one time the students ask where all passed away things go he states I do not understand. Then they state is death that which gives meaning to life.
They go into a severe discussion and then they hear a knock on the door and a gerbil walks in, the children cheer extremely. We see that children do not gain anything from these deaths. As we in none of these characters get and knowledge after they have actually been see suffering. Most people now don’t even get wisdom from when they suffer. They live life going through pain like the guy from the discus thrower; go crazy like the ladies did from the yellow wallpaper. Or go through life not recognizing, or simple shot to keep what they may lose, like the kids in the narrative school.
