(Hurston, 75). This showed that Joe did interact with his followers in a human way and not in a corrupt way. Now the qualities of a leader are demonstrated by Joe in this book are as follows. He has shown that he is more than capable to be the leader of the town of Eatonville, but the person that I think he shares the same qualities with is Howard Shultz. Howard Shultz came from a poor neighborhood growing up in the Bronx.
When Joe was about ten years old, the only life he really knew was drugs, sex, and stealing money. His parents worked everyday all day, so he was never able to look to his parents for when he needed help. By the age twelve, he had dropped out of school and was behind bars many times. As years went on, Joe became high in the Vice Lords and was one of the leaders for his group. He began to use heroin and became obsessed with the stealing business.
As discussed, Joe tried to get justice for his mother, but that wasn’t enough for him, not when there were others on the reservation who weren’t receiving any type of equity on the attacks against them, and so once again he took matters into his own hands, but this time he decided to do it the right way. Joe already had influence from his father since he was a lawyer as well, but the reader can easily assume that the main reason he decided to become a lawyer was because of his mothers attack. The idea of justice will forever be in the back of Joe’s head because of the events that occurred when he was just a boy, but even after everything thing that happened, he decided to make the most of
‘Come out and fight me!’” Since Joe has only been shown the idealized relationship between his parents, experiencing the imperfect nature Whitey and Sonja's love exposes him to the harsh reality of his community and transforms him into a different person despite his young age. While the attack Joe witnessed was a physical event, Erdrich also masterfully uses the symbolism of trees and nature to track Joe's personal development throughout the novel. The peak of this analogy is reached when Joe looks back on these events saying, “It occurred to me how even pulling trees that day, just months ago, I was in heaven. Unaware.
Joe’s life had changed right before his eyes, just like a lot of Americans lives and the Jews in Germany during the early 1930s. Millions of people were displaced during the tumultuous times of the
Later in the novel, Joe is diagnosed with a failure in his
Not only does Joe show the cruelty through the stories of brutal and inhumane treatment of people in the past but he also shows the cruelty in his own treatment after he breaks through the silent barrier of communication. Joe has just broken the barrier with his tapping of morse code, the nurse and the individual who knows morse code understand what he is trying to do. The unknown individual and Joe have a very simple conversation which ends with the crushing of all Joe’s hopes for a real life, “What you ask is against regulations who are you” (page 235). Joe at this point has given
He became materialistic, which was complete contrast from his positive, big hearted Joe. What we learn about Joe is that he is very superficial, he is charmed by Slemmons and easily fooled by people’s façade. Consequently, the conflict intensifies as Joe intends to show of Missie May to Slemmons in the opening of the ice cream parlor. In the text he says, “Go ‘head on now, honey and put on yo’ clothes.
After listening to guest speaker and author of a Christian Coming Out, Lou Anne’s story about being a lesbian and being a conservative Christian at that has taught her to embrace her sexuality and her lifestyle. For years, Lou Anne lived her life as a straight conservative girl, and later woman. As she repeated time and time again, “I was in a unhappy marriage, I pretend to be someone I was not…” Lou Anne eventually was at her breaking point, where she thought about taking her own life, because she said, “the thought of living another day as straight woman led me to believe being dead and going up to heaven was the only way I could see myself ever being happy”. It was not until her 60’s when Lou Anne had a change of heart, the way she labeled
Although he is set to be released in less than two years, he does not obtain the help he needs while in prison, where he has resided for almost three decades. It is a devastating story because most people do not understand the help he needs. It's the people who would surprise you the most that do. One of Joe’s Inmates noticed Joe’s severe mental disability, “An inmate incarcerated with Joe writes to EJI about Joe's abuse and his disability" (“Joe Sullivan Character Analysis” N.P.). This inmate realized that Joe does not deserve to be in prison, but instead needs help getting out so that he can receive the help that he needs.
This is a reflection of who Joe was in the beginning of the book, where he was just another kid with no worries. It is ironic because of who Joe has developed into and what he's been through. However, by the end of the chapter, Joe is portrayed as a child who is dependent on his parents to bring him back home. His young age is an obstacle but it also provides some protection as he would be tried as a juvenile and no one really suspects him. 13-year-old Joe is already making well-advanced decisions that no regular 13-year-old would be making at this age.
He is alone; he has no job opportunity in Washington because Roy has died. But Joe is happy. Joe has finally faced unlocked that “hidden thing” and he has embraced it.

The Radicalized Mind Joesph Strorm is a loyal brute, an extremist. He is an unwavering leader to Waknuk and the Repentances. He would sacrifice anything for his religion. Joseph is the kind of character that will do what he believes in with asking anyone one else. He is very cantankerous and hard to deal with and is a huge threat to David.
In section 27 when Joe comes to see Pip, he treats Joe in an alternate way than before on the grounds that Joe was currently in a lower social class. His sentiments about Joe 's entry were "Not with delight... I had the most keen affectability as to his being seen by Drummle." (p. 203). He was unable to avoid the fact that Drummle will look down on him due to Joe 's lower class.
