The Appointment in Samarra, John O'Hara, novel, encounter, destiny, death, we cannot avoid fate
Terrorising and scary, death has always been a threatening subject. Although nobody wants to think about dying, we all wonder when Death is going to take us. In the fable "The Appointment in Samarra" by W. Somerset Maugham (1933), the author demonstrates that humans cannot avoid their fate. When a servant goes to the market and sees Death, he is so cared and petrified that he decides to leave town to go to Samarra in order to escape Death. Unfortunately, Death has just stopped in Bagdad en route to Samarra where she is supposed to meet the servant. In the fable, it is obvious how the encounter with Death changes the Servant's life. The author demonstrates clearly that humans can't avoid their fate.
