Throughout the story, the readers begin to realize that love is sometimes just an ideal depending on the character. For example, Baby states that “whatever it is, it’s so far from love, it was easy for me to understand why Alphonse never got jealous when I was with a trick” (O’Neill, 253). From this quote, the readers can infer that Alphonse is not truly loved, only by his prostitutes and a thirteen-year-old girl. Although it does not state why he became a pimp, it is clear that he became one due to the lack of love he received. He also turns to drugs to cope with the non-existent love in his life.
The narrator's biggest conflict, in my opinion, is why did Sonny turn down such a dark path and how can he help his brother without judging the lifestyle he chose. Although, this is not the only conflict in the story. Not only does the narrator struggle with helping his brother but he also blames himself for Sonny's outcome in life. He promised his mother to look after Sonny when she passed because "he ain't going to have nobody to look out for him" (259). The narrator seems to take on the responsibility of Sonny's fallen actions because he was off in the Army and left Sonny with Isabel's parents.
They would listen to the conversations with recording devices hidden disguised as electrical outlets. One agent infamous for watching so much was White himself. White was so consumed by his curiosity to know if the experiments would be a success that he regularly sat in a room sitting on a toilet drinking cocktails because he didn’t want to miss a moment. According to History.com White wrote a letter to Gottlieb that stated “Of course I was a very minor missionary, actually a heretic, but I toiled wholeheartedly in the vineyards because it was fun, fun, fun. Where else could a red-blooded American boy lie, kill and cheat, steal, deceive, rape and pillage with the sanction and blessing of the
Atticus Finch is a static character who is an attorney and father of Jem and Scout in Harper Lee’s To Kill a Mockingbird. Throughout the novel his belief in all people stays consistent. He genuinely believes and accepts that all people have good and evil sides.

‘’I was a coward. I went to the war’’ Pg187.

He was able to resist the urge to kill and dropped them off safely, being sane he whole time (“Murder, No Apparent Motive). Ed had a variety of jobs that he worked at. He actually worked at the Atascadero Institution while he was a patient there (Murderpedia 5). He helped administer tests to patients and was eager to work, which is a good sign because most sociopaths don’t want to work (Murderpedia 5). Ed then wanted to be a police officer, but could not because there was a size and weight restriction at the time ("Edmund Kemper Biography" 2).
By what disaster did you lose your wits? Come out, my child, I beg you as a suppliant! '" (Sophocles, lines 1228-1230). Kreon 's use of the word suppliant shows how he feels subordinate to Antigone in this moment. In "Sonny 's Blues," Sonny uses heroin to cope with his past and how he feels misunderstood now, saying "Her voice reminded me for a minute of what heroine feels like sometimes-when it 's in your veins.
Holden and Allie are the similar because they both like literature and english. This is proven because the baseball mitt that allie had has poems on it so he could read it when he was bored playing baseball. The short term result of Allies death is that he went on a rampage on all the windows in the garage and he also tried to break all the windows in the car they had. The long term effects is that he will always remember Allie and be sad for him Also his had can’t make a super tight fist and people will keep an eye on him from there on out because he had to get psychoanalyzed. It can be inferred that Holden hates things that are kind of cryptic and since Stradlater was so vague it make Holden think that Stradlater did the time with Jane and obviously Holden is jealous ands dislikes Stradlater for
Eventually, after a death in the group, LT. Cross was distracted and he decides to burn the letters Martha sent him. “On the morning after Ted Lavender died, First LT. Jimmy Cross crouched at the bottom of his foxhole and burned Martha’s letters… Lavender was dead. You couldn’t burn the blame” (O’Brien 22). This quote is important because it tells about why LT. Cross burned the letters and what other
You see tension in the different types of teenagers(different lifestyles) interacting with eachother. Clarie and Bender(John) showed a lot of tension, but so did Bender and everyone else. They finally decided to put aside their differences and make peace. The first placed I noticed it was when they helped Bender when he stole the screw from the door.

Osewoudt’s reasons for killing are not heroic reasons, just a reason for him to continue living and to serve a purpose. “Dorbeck has made a new man of me, he thought”(97). Osewoudt wanted a meaning to his life and he believed his actions portrayed him as a soldier fighting for the right cause… “I had no skilled, no ambition. “It wasn’t until I met Dorbeck that I felt I wanted something “(204). Osewoudt’s uncle called him a coward because he believed it was his responsibility to protect his wife and mother, and instead, he just selfishly decided to look after himself(112).

Baker then manipulates each image with distortions and image overlays to further symbolize the drug. He avoids unnecessary adjustments to the eyes, to make sure the message they deliver is intact. CRACK COCAINE Baker described his night with this gentleman as “one of the most interesting”. He watched him convert cocaine into the smokable version, “Crack” which gets its name form the cracking and popping sound it makes it is being smoked. Smoking crack allows it to reach the brain more quickly and thus, albeit very short lived, it brings an intense and immediate high that lasts about fifteen minutes.
