At first, Flynn is passive aggressive in response towards Sister Aloysius: Flynn: “You have borne false witness against your neighbor, you have played with his reputation, and you should be heartily ashamed” (Shanley 37). Flynn is hiding something, and he knows that

Ender is surprised by the offer considering the fact that they have already removed his monitor, which is soon revealed by Colonel Graff as a final test and thus he passed. Ender passes because Graff is satisfied not with hurting Stilson but for his motivation which was a sign that Ender was unlike his brother.

Kachur uses a study written by Etherington that states that children abused by the same gender parent will have a greater problem with self-differentiation and establishment of personal identity; which can be an explanation of how the narrator sees the “Evil Eye” and the old

Is White stating that parents have no responsibility whatsoever to teach their boys some manners, social behaviours and so on?

In “The Birthmark”, Aylmer is bothered in seeing a birthmark on his wife Georgiana’s cheek.

In the opening passage of “The Pupil” by Henry James, James depicts three characters and the relationships among them. Through the use of irony and an omniscient point of view, Pemberton, Mrs. Moreen, and Morgan Moreen are thoroughly mocked, and James creates a caustic portrayal of a young man being hired for his first job.
