This shows how he would go through life on a schedule, much like a worker bee. “The Metamorphosis” focuses on the alienation on a common man after he can longer do what is expected of him, this is shown by Gregor 's relationship with his family, social life, and the way he goes through live after the metamorphosis. It suggests that the common man is reduced to an insect by the modern world and his family; human nature is focused mostly around us being self absorbed. We tend to look after our own need before the needs of others. Through out “The Metamorphosis” it can be seen that the more generous and selfless one is towards others, the worse one is treated.
He shows a clear love for his family by his struggle to take care of them. “And so at a very early age when he was striving desperately to build a barn through sharecropping, Okonkwo was also fending for his father’s house” (Achebe 22). This quote shows that Okonkwo cared enough for his family, that he worked hard as a youth to fend for them, even with his resentment towards his father. Achebe writes very clearly how angry it makes Okonkwo that he has to support his father’s idle lifestyle, and how he overcomes it with his sympathy for his mother and sisters. Okonkwo is also sympathetic by the way he treats Ikemefuna, a stranger to his village, who Okonkwo grows fond of secretly.

The Red Room is a novel that was written by H.G Wells. In the excerpt I read there were four characters two elderly men, an elderly woman, and a twenty-eight year old man.

This essay will explain Atticus's strengths and weaknesses in To Kill a Mockingbird. I believe that Atticus’s best strength is being an excellent father to his two kids Jem and Scout. Atticus helps his kid with important life lessons. He told his kids the truth instead of avoiding their questions or lying to them like what most parent would do if something bad happens.

Early in the book, the boy has little experience with the harsh outside world, he is trusting in everyone but his father knows best, and does what he can to protect him. The father examines everyone right as he sees them, and the boy learns to do the same. “Like an animal inside a skull looking out the eyeholes” (McCarthy 63). McCarthy compares the man he sees to an animal in skull, doing this, gives the reader a grim feeling about the man. The use of a simile also helps us learn how Papa evaluates the man, determining if he is trusting or not, and in this case he is anything but trusting.

Eighner depicts “Dumpster diving” with positive aspects for someone who is homeless. Through the art he narrates life lessons. People trying to be polite use the verb “foraging”, but in Eighner’s eyes he prefers to save it for small forest animals collecting nuts and berries. Eighner prefers “scavenging” because he understands the mind of a scavenger. Fundamentally, “they must restrict themselves to items of relatively immediate utility.” On the contrast, he uses “scrounging” when he means to be vague.
