In his short story “The Scarlet Ibis,” James Hurst uses Doodle’s brother in order to show how he is both cruel and kind towards his younger brother Doodle. The character of Doodle’s brother behaves with cruel notions toward Doodle. For example, when Doodle’s brother faces the prospect of possibly having an invalid brother forever, he “…began to make plans to kill him by smothering him with a pillow,” (Hurst 555). This demonstrates that the narrator would rather murder his brother than have one that is mentally challenged, which is not at all a humane thought, to say the least. Anyone who chooses to murder their blood relative instead of support them through tough times most definitely has wickedness within them, which supports the statement that Doodle’s brother behaves cruelly towards Doodle.

The characters are different and attempt to turn the other boys around, but singularity is inadequate when compared to the strength of similarity. Ralph, piggy, and Simon try to use their unique traits to improve the groups condition, but they are harshly declined because of the power of shared

This causes Prospero to forgive the men, not because he truly wants to, but because of his ego.
