Common Themes of English 2205

There are so many, come see!

THEME: Good always wins in the end

Example from The Book of Job: "and the Lord showed favor to Job. And the Lord restored Job's fortunes when he prayed for his companions, and the Lord increased twofold all that Job had. And all his male and female kinfolk and all who had known him before came and broke bread with him in his house and grieved with him and comforted him for all the harm the Lord had brought on him. And each of them gave him one kesitah and one golden ring." --------- This shows that after all the pain and suffering Job went through from having everything to having nothing and being in a bad health condition, he still kept his faith in God and by doing that God rewarded Job with double the riches he had in the beginning.

"They extolled his heroic nature and exploits and gave thanks for his greatness; which was the proper thing, for a man should praise a prince whom he holds dear and cherish his memory when that moment comes when he has to be convoyed from his bodily home. So the Geat people, his hearth-companions, sorrowed for the lord who had been laid low. They said that of all the kings upon earth he was the man most gracious and fair-minded, kindest to his people and keenest to win fame."-------- After all that Beowulf did for the Geats they are grateful and even at Beowulf's funeral they talk about how great he was.


(Gilgamesh speaking): "You who stood by me when we climbed the mountain, Seized and slew the Bull of Heaven, Felled Humbaba who dwelt in the forest of cedar." --------- Here Gilgamesh is speaking all the good things Enkidu did after he has died, even though his life was quite short he was still there for Gilgamesh to accomplish great things.
