If he punished Douglass it would be a confession of his failure to break a slave, his reputation would be ruined. The reluctance to discipline Frederick enhanced his confidence and resulted in him declaring to himself that he would not be discriminated against from this point on, “I did not hesitate to let it known of me, that the white man who expected to succeed in whipping, must also succeed in killing me” (83). If literature made him aware of his worth and position in the world, fighting back was his way of taking action and proclaiming that enough is

In his mind, he believes that Baba will send Ali and Hassan away, and, as a result, he will finally gain some peace. To Amir’s surprise, Hassan confesses to stealing his gifts without hesitation symbolizing “Hassan’s final sacrifice for [him]” (105). At that moment, Amir realizes that Hassan knew of his betrayal, which added to his already guilty conscience. Hassan could have easily told Baba the truth and he would have believed him because”[everyone] knew that Hassan never lied”, which, in turn, would ruin Amir’s relationship with his father (105). He probably knew that Amir was unworthy of his sacrifice, that he was the “snake in the grass, the monster in the lake”, but he lied for Amir’s own benefit

For example, the trickster slave faces mistrust multiple times from other characters, albeit warranted given the nature of tricksters; slaves must endure unfair punishments even when circumstances make it impossible for the slave to prevent it, such as the boy who is unable to buy Ballio a present; and subordinates must unconditionally carry out selfish desires of authorities, as exemplified in The Cane. With such difficulties present in slavery, forms of slave resistance seem like reasonable ways to preserve what little autonomy slaves had. However, the form of resistance a slave chooses may depend on the degree of desperation of the
'Bob Ewell meant business,' Mr. Tate muttered." (page 269). This shows that Bob Ewell deserved to die because he was trying to kill Atticus' kids just because he made Bob look bad in court. He's a coward cause he didn’t go after Atticus like he said he would, he went after his
12 years a slave is a memoir, in which the author narrates the story of his descent into the cruel world of slavery, and his eventual liberation after 12 long years of suffering. The author, Solomon Northup, begins stating that he was born a freeman, and had been one for more than 30 years, till the year 1853, whence his misery begins. Solomon was fortunate to have an education that far surpassed others of his origin. He worked as a labourer in a farm, and his life was fairly normal and uneventful, until one day he met two gentlemen, who claim to be connected with a circus, and required someone with a proficiency in music to accompany some of their performances before they reached the circus. They offer him a good pay, and so he readily agrees to do so, leaving without informing his family, assuming that he will be returning soon.
Solomon is a free man who is freed again after twelve years of slavery. He is kidnapped, enslaved and sent into a slave pen with others. In plantations, he witnesses man’s inhumanity to man. He has been beaten, almost killed. He has been made to work very hard and punished for what he is
