Without any concrete proof, O’Brien defeats Winston because O’Brien contends that Winston made up the memories. In relation to the comic, Calvin, just like Winston, lacks concrete proof to refute his dad’s statement. He must accept his dad’s painting theory as valid and correct. Calvin’s dad and the Party create an aura of the superiors being right because they are more highly ranked. History in 1984 is constantly being rewritten by the Party, but orthodox citizens use crimestop, protective stupidity that prevents unorthodoxy, and doublethink to believe the past has always been the way it is currently portrayed.
Nathan now has to depend on his mom’s new husband, Barry, to learn from because Barry has a job, is able to provide for the family, and is stable while Gaz is immature, raunchy, and a bad influence.

Nonetheless, the play focuses more on Mama and how she changes rather than how Walter is changing. Unlike the play, we witness Walter’s experiences and his emotions, as well as how he looks at life. For example, in the movie, Walter is shown at a bar with Bobo and Willy. In this scene, Walter discusses making an investment to buy a liquor store. Walter says ecstatically, “We gonna make this deal
Soon after, Walter invests the money and lends it to his friend to start the process of opening the liquor store.

Mama second guesses buying the house, but Walter stands up for what his right and his ambitious side comes out and insists on moving into the new house. These chain of events just mentioned are great examples of Walter as a dynamic character.
Huck tells Jim that Solomon is indeed the wisest man ever to live, on the authority of the widow’s testimony. Jim dissents again, referencing the fable in which Solomon threatens to cut a baby in half to determine its mother. He disputes Solomon’s logic, offering instead that the king should have treated the child like lost money and sought its rightful parent instead of risking ending up with, as Jim puts it, “half a chile” (95). Jim uses his money analogy again to question the validity of bisection, saying that there is little use for either half a bill or half a child.

After a visit from Karl Lindner, the family learned that the white neighbors were willing to do whatever it may take to keep the Younger 's from moving in. However, little did the family know, it would be more than simply offering to buy the house back. During the 1950s and sixties, there was no limit to what white people would do to stop integration. Lorraine Hansberry 's own situation demonstrated this. Mobs surrounded the home and pelted the children with spit and curses (Hansberry 1215).

Walter Mitty feels that through imagination he could be in a place he could really belong but the thing is, by having these “episodes” it excludes him from belonging in reality which poses the question, is it more important to belong with yourself or with others around you? It is clear that Walter Mitty uses his mind to escape reality where he feels he belongs, but it is also interesting to see how he has given up on trying to belong in reality and accepted the fact that he will be useless as time
Whether okonkwo is threatening his son to work or feeling ashamed of his father, the man is portrayed being an unsympathetic character to the eye from his beatings and cockiness, but people hardly look past that to view it from another perspective.

To be prideful is human nature, even when it hasn 't been earned. Being proud of who you are and what you have accomplished is an important part of everyone 's life, but sometimes we are prideful without something to be proud of. This kind of pride is shown in the play A Raisin in the Sun by Lorraine Hansberry through the character Walter Younger. He enters the play with a false sense of pride in being a man, despite the fact that he is a chauffeur who is struggling to support his family. Throughout the plot, he struggles with acceptance of his social status and economical situations, but ends up achieving true fulfillment in simply being proud of who he and his family are as people with aspirations.
