The inevitability of death is portrayed through all texts that we have analyzed in this course. Whether the text is a religious reference text such as The Bible or the Koran, or if it is an account of a philosopher's trial. Each reading displays how death is a fact of life that is unavoidable no matter how hard some characters may try. Some such as Socrates are prepared for it and face it head on, and others such as Gilgamesh run from it and seek immortality. All the while we learn through the religious texts about potential candidates for the reason why death is so unavoidable.
