Parallel Moral Dilemmas

FRANK-I15XK9

Which of the following lines illustrates the parallels between the two characters and their moral dilemma?

A

"I found myself fettered again to grief and indulging in all the misery of reflection weighed down by horror and despair."

B

"I ardently desired the acquisition of knowledge."

C

"I determined to go without a guide, for I was well acquainted with the path, and the presence of another would destroy the solitary grandeur of the scene."

D

"We entered the hut... I with a heavy heart and depressed spirits. But I consented to listen."

E

"They congregated round me; the unstained snowy mountaintop, the glittering pinnacle, the pine woods, and ragged bare ravine the eagle, soaring amidst the clouds — they all gathered round me and bade me be at peace."
