One person can make a difference in a situation. Although we all hate to be the odd ball, sometimes it’s good to show what we really think. In the play Twelve Angry Men, Reginald Rose demonstrates how the power of an individual in society can make a difference in someone’s life, which is represented though juror number eight. There would be no play without juror number eight. He was the one to make everyone think differently, to think twice about the boy.
However, Juror #8 is not the only one who is using the father/son relationship to assume whether or not the accused boy deserves the guilty verdict. Juror #3 is clearly shown to be a father. When talking about the way these kids are during that time period, #3 got up and walked around the table, recounting the day when he was a kid. He was very polite and respectful when he was addressing his father which caused him to ask the jurors if they have ever heard a kid call his father “sir” anymore to which Juror #8 commented, saying that “Fathers do not seem to think it is important anymore.” #3 looked down to #8 and asked #8 if he had any children to which he said that he had
Man was created in sin therefor selfish is a character of man it is only through monitoration that man has learned to adapt in a civil environment where there selfish character is hidden behind their mask of deception. This being the case you are one hundred percent correct to state that man would step all over one another to get what they want. Unfortunately that is still true in corporate American colleagues subconsciously pitted against one another to help but to hinder their colleges in order to not lose their positions in life. Luckily it is not as bad as during the 1800s were beheadings were the leader. In fact King George shows us the cruelty of man being able to do as the wish through the beheading of his wife whom did not bear sons.
Gerald jeered at Eric about how the police inspector may want something from Eric, and instead of Arthur defending his son, he sided with Gerald instead. As after Gerald made the joke, Arthur only responded with a mere “Very” instead of leaping to his own son’s defense. Arthur humiliated his own son in front of the inspector and Gerald only because Eric was fighting for the rights of underpaid women like Eva Smith. “That’s something this public school and varsity life you’ve had doesn’t seem to teach you”. Arthur wanted to prove a point to the inspector, Gerald and Eric how smarter he was compared to Eric, by stating how Eric went to public school.
If Ponyboy had to describe his older brother, “He looks older than twenty-tough, cool, and smart” (Hinton 6). Having a good image like the one Darry has on the gang can really affect them positively as they look up to someone to hopefully strive for. Darry knew that none of the boys had a father to look up to so instead of being another member of the Greasers, he took the biggest responsibility ever, which is to be the “man” of the the group. Darrel has every internal characteristic of being a good person but he also wants the gang to look their best to keep the reputation of a Greaser high. On the night of the rumble Darry was for sure trying to be an epitome for his gang and maybe even impress the Socs, “Darry had on a black T-shirt that showed every muscle on his chest even the flat hard muscles of his stomach” (Hinton 132).
The evidence boils down to you-did-I-didn 't. The jury couldn 't possibly be expected to take Tom Robinson 's word against the Ewells, '" Atticus solemnly explains this to his brother. First of all, Atticus demonstrates courage when he undertakes the task of defending Tom Robinson, a black man wrongly accused of rape. Atticus knows he won 't win the case and like Mrs. Dubose in her battle against morphine, he is "licked" before he begins. Nevertheless, Atticus knows that Tom is innocent and that he must fight for him, since no one else will.
In Twelve Angry Men, the award winning three act drama written by Reginald Rose, each juror is told to reconsider a reasonable doubt in deciding the fate of a young man accused of murdering his own father. With little exception, each juror bring his own personal biases and preconceptions. However, in this rollercoaster of a drama, no other juror stands out as much as Juror Three. Though other jurors may occasionally admit a reasonable doubt, Juror Three is strictly motivated by his superiority complex, impatience, and personal grudges. Juror Three often believes his opinions matter more than others and only appreciates those who agree with him.
The “little un” is a younger child that is under Ralph’s protection because he is leader. An effective leader's job is to control the society, and since Ralph couldn't control the boys enough to make sure none get lost, he isn't really effective. Now, while the child is missing, Ralph stays in denial about this. If Ralph was an effective leader, he would have sent out a search party for the boy, but instead Ralph made up excuses. On page 47, the book says, “Perhaps he went back to the, the.” Ralph chooses to ignore the problem by making up an excuse about how the boy might have “went back” somewhere and is safe.
This pride of his is what got him and his men into their situation in the first place. It is obvious in the book and the movie that everything that happened could have been prevented if Odysseus would not have tried to take all the credit for the defeat of the Trojans. During the movie and the book Odysseus’s arrogance, ego, and pride get in the way of him and his men getting home. If it weren't for him they could have all made it home to Ithaca instead of just Odysseus by himself twenty years after he first left
