This essay was completed after reading several in class texts which the bibliographies are included at the end This paper is relating all of these texts through the theme of success Success In the Eye of the Beholder Success is a universal theme We see this all around us -- in other people in music and definitely in our literature There are many ways by which to define success In each of four pieces of literature success is introduced from a different point of view In The Pact success was achieved by three inner city men They made a pact together to get through medical school and become doctors Their success was not measured by becoming doctors but by the fact that they had made something better of themselves than ending up on the streets In The Challenger Disaster Richard P Feynman makes it clear that the mistake that led to this disaster was not just a fuel line o-ring but the assumption of continued success that NASA had enjoyed In Candide the character Candide felt that his success would only come with rejoining the love of his life Though he was successful in the end he realized that he no longer wanted this woman who had turned ugly His success now meant nothing to him although he had been very successful in the process of getting to his goal In Frankenstein Victor successfully recreates human life but soon realizes that his success is not admired by other men and eventually his success ruins his own life Success is presented in different manners by different authors which allows readers to get a broad understanding of different aspects of success In The Pact the success that the three doctors achieved represents much more than becoming a doctor The three authors had to avoid the temptations of an easy life on the streets and keep themselves directed towards their goal They also had obstacles to overcome
