Torres; he was a murderer and extremely cruel especially to revolutionaries like themselves. Although the barber and his friends believed Torres should be dead; him seeing Torres so vulnerable and calm helped him realize what he believed the be the right choice.In conclusion, both Eveline and the Barber were each faced different external factors that influenced them both to act the same, which is to change their mind. External factors mean anything that could influence someone's way of thinking- including their morals. Morals are influenced by external factors as well. Eveline was affected with a moral dilemma- stuck between choosing to do what she wanted or doing what she felt she was obligated to do. She wanted to go with her boyfriend, but her promise to her deceased mother, as well as her home, Lane 5father, and lifestyle; were the external factors that influenced not only her morals, but her ability to make her own decisions as well. The barber was faced with a difficult choice due to external
factors as well. However, I wouldn’t describe his difficulty choosing as a moral dilemma. The Barber knew that he didn’t want to kill Captain Torres. Although, he felt like he should because of all the damage Torres had done and all of his friends that Torres killed. It was these external factor that caused the Barber to question himself and contemplate his choices. In the end, he decided to do what he wanted and spare Captain Torres. External factors are what cause people and even characters in stories to question themselves, their identities, and their choices. Lane 6Works Cited PageJoyce, James. “Eveline.” [email protected],
