Quote #4

If merely brute caprice dooms Sisyphus
To struggle up a never-ending stair (7-8)

Suffering example 4: Sisyphus is also from Greek mythology and he's doomed to roll a large boulder up a hill for eternity. The job is difficult, it will never be finished, and life for Sisyphus seems like it'd be totally pointless. This is the last example of suffering in the speaker's list. Of course, there's no answer given from God or the speaker, but the point is that there are things in life that we'll never understand, even really bum deals, like the one Sisyphus got. Just another example of how we don't understand suffering in life.
