I could never please him.” (Hinton, 13) This quote shows that Ponyboy dislikes Darry with a feeling of rejection. There is evidence supporting the fact that Ponyboy and Darry dislike each other. This is shown when Darry is too strict and demanding, when Ponyboy runs away, when Darry slaps Ponyboy, and when both brothers yell and argue. Negative family members, such as Darry, influenced the actions of our characters. This is shown when Ponyboy runs away due to the physical violence of his brother, Darrel Curtis.
What he found did not please him, and he panics upon his discovery of Doodle’s limp body, crying out for him as he held Doodle in his arms. The narrator calls for Doodle, saying “Let’s go, Doodle” (564). Upon not receiving an answer, he lifts his head to discover Doodle “had been bleeding from the mouth, and his neck and front of his shirt were stained a brilliant red” (564). The narrator cries out “Doodle! Doodle!” (564) all the while shielding him from the rain, the final consequence of the pride that ruled the life of the narrator.
Lennie was constantly causing trouble because of his mental disabilities. He for example had to leave his previous job because he was being chased for causing extreme trouble. “´Her neck’s bust. Lennie coulda did that.´ George didn’t answer, but he nodded slowly. His hat was so far down on his forehead that his eyes were covered.
When he does not let go when she asks, she begins to yell for help. At the possibility of not being able to tend the rabbits, Lennie becomes upset. Steinbeck writes “He shook her then, and he was angry with her.” (91). This detail is important because that same anger is present that he showed to his puppy for dying. In both cases instead of feeling sorry for scaring or killing them, he is angry at them because of it.
First, an example of Shylock’s lack of support is his confusion. Though Shylock makes it appear as though his financial loss is almost as important, the loss of his daughter fleeing with a Christian seems incomprehensible to him. Another example is his outrage, which is evident throughout the passage. Furious, Shylock shouts at the Justice to find his daughter and his money, obviously showing that Shylock is angry with his daughter for stealing from him. Term: Definition 10.
“Your buddy, Johnny.” I finished, then looked backed up at Dally. He was staring that Johnny’s grave. “This ain’t right, Pony” Dally said, tears filling in his eyes. “It wasn’t suppose to happen like this!” he was sobbing now. “Why couldn’t it have been me, why did Johnny have to be the one to leave?” I was surprised to see Dally act this way.
But now his father was not showing sympathy by the way he reacted to the was his son walked into the room of his parents screaming at the top of his lungs. His father shouting at him to get him to notice his mistake then ripped the tape out of his head with anger, pulling 60 hairs out of his scalp. And after all of that, he decided to make the situation worse to start disciplining his son by hitting. This to me shows how none of the charters in the story show sympathy and are all selfish. If I was in the father 's son shows being screamed at and also being hurt I would feel desperate, hopeless, but jealous.
Inconsiderate. What do people think about that word being used towards someone? In “This is Water” by David Foster Wallace several strong points are thrown out to the audience, to point out real world situations, how life is as an adult, and what to look forward to after high school, or college. While experiencing his adulthood, he tells stories of his daily activities. When Wallace is at the grocery store he talks about self-centeredness, and how the world does not revolve around one, that he or she has to think about other people too.
Jem is shocked by the verdict: ”His [Jem’s] face was streaked with angry tears as we made our way through the cheerful crowd. ‘It ain’t right,’ he muttered all the way to the corner of the square where we found Atticus waiting…‘It ain’t right, Atticus,’ said Jem. ‘No son, it’s not right.’ We walked home” (p284). The inequitable judgment forces him to confront his previous morals of justice and goodness; realizing that they seldom patch up with the real world, it leaves him lost and vulnerable. Notwithstanding, he still manages to retain
