It is Luke’s fatherly love for his daughter that leads to his dilemma between pursuing the truth of doing what is just and right and demonstrating his love for his daughter. "A Father's Story," by Andre Dubus shares that the love of a father toward his own daughter means that he will protect her even if the process calls for him to misplace a part of himself. To protect his daughter, the father is forced to undergo challenges, a battle between his mind and his values. In the story, Luke Ripley, the protagonist, drops his core principles and ethical values deliberately to protect his daughter. I believe that the central conflict in "A Father's story" is a betrayal of a friend's trust and personal values and ethics for the sake of love, because
Without George Lennie would not be able to get a job because of his disabilities and he wouldn't be able to keep Lennie to not do anything stupid.

Loyalty and Friendship go a long way in this book and in real
Mccandless sense of self confidence while trying to find his identity helped him to progress in life, but was also his greatest downfall; Into the Wild demonstrates self confidence as not an unacceptable trait to have, but the significance of the negative or positive effects it can possess. Confidence played a big role in Mccandless life, so much that he created relationships with his family and other people that caused him to go on his adventures. Throughout this book Mccandless expresses his hate towards his parents. When he was old enough to realize that his dad had cheated on his mom this particular aspect changed him. He wanted nothing to do with his parents.
His mother provided a needed nurturing feature that he would need to give him the boost to return to the aspects of society. Krebs struggled to find ways to regain his stature in society and his mother felt it was her duty to help him along the way even if he was mean to her without understanding why he was doing such. Krebs would even tell his mother he did not love her, even though he did not mean it (Hemingway 170). His mother would be there to support her son, even after the hurtful comments that Krebs made towards her. It is hurtful in any form to see your children go through any pain and she would make sure that all could be done to get Harold back into the world.
Inhibitors such as strict rules from society and parents had prevented these lovers from interacting with each other. Despite those inhibitors, however, the love had still blossomed. If it were not for Orwell’s use of setting, dialogue, and detail, this would not be possible in 1984. Recognizing these techniques is crucial in literature in order to truly empathize with the characters in their struggle for love. By doing so, one can gain confidence in starting relationships, because they will learn that if Julia and Winston can love each other, then they can as
John Proctor is also loyal because he died for the love of his wife. For example, Proctor says, “...” This also makes John loyal because he died for Elizabeth. He wants to prove that he would do anything for his wife and marriage, and him confessing was the way to free her, so he did it. At the end he could have just accused someone else, but he didn’t want to accuse an innocent person. Proctor is honorable because he is loyal to his
With this imperfection Anne has a low self esteem and confidence which meant she was afraid to do anything to upset her parents further. When she had the opportunity to do her part in the war she took in in hopes of proving herself to her parents that she is worth more than just someone to be married. Anne shows us that through determination and hard work, things may not end up with the happy ending you expected but instead can finish in something completely different but just as good.
Feeling that this could be used against him in a way that he isn’t masculine also gives reason behind the changing of the name. Looking for the acceptance of his peers, Jack becomes someone who he isn’t. Jack is largely influenced to belong due to his need to “Belong to a conventional family”. He is willing to try putting up with Dwight to achieve this not only for himself, but for Rosemary too. What is easy to see is that Rosemary’s unconditional love is what gets Jack through what can be seen as the toughest and most abusive time in his childhood.
There are many differences in the way others view and treat men and women. For example, some believe that men are superior to women, and women are incapable of performing certain tasks. In William Shakespeare’s play A Midsummer Night’s Dream, one of the main characters, Hermia, has issues with her father over her marriage. Her father wants her to marry one man while she wants to marry another and threatens to have her killed if she does not marry the man of his choice. She runs away with her lover, planning to be married to him outside of her father’s control, and the two end up running into many different problems and circumstances involving the fairy King, Oberon, and his wife, Titania.
But there to me, Medea really does not know what being in love truly is. She seems to be hungry for it rather than feeling it. For her, Jason seemed to be on her top list of people who she is willing her every piece of her life to be with. This is where we begin to see her morality crumble up, as she loses her sanity so much, that she kills her brother
Gatsby also has to come to the realization that even if some how he and Daisy 's relationship together would work out, Daisy still has a child to mend for. Their relationship together would be quite difficult to figure out with all of these things in the way. They would have to discuss with Tom about the kids and get lawyers involved, Gatsby certainly has the money for it but it, would take away valuable that time he could use to be spending alone with his love: Daisy. Although Gatsby has a everlasting love that does not seem to be able to be broken, there is so much he would have to put into this just for him and Daisy to live a normal life again. The press also would be constantly bothering them trying to get more information about this sudden change in relationship.
They valued piety, courage, and industry. If they lacked piety, the Puritans would have also lacked the faith and trust required for them to believe they could be successful in this New World. Without courage, they might have been too scared to leave England in search of a new land where they wouldn 't have to face persecution for their beliefs. If they had not valued industry, they might not have worked hard enough to survive in the conditions they had to endure on their long journey. Bradford showed appreciation for these values, along with their generosity and fairness towards one another and the Native Americans, as he wrote about the Pilgrims.
Gatsby was willing to do anything for Daisy. Although it seems that things may not go as he thought they would, he is still willing to help her hoping that she would come around and want to be with him instead of Tom, but in a way, he could see the selfish side of Daisy that he never noticed before, “There must have been moments even that afternoon when Daisy tumbled short of his dreams” (Fitzgerald 92). Gatsby just could not understand why after all he did to be with her, that Daisy would not choose to be with him. He had become wealthy, he had the material things that he knew she would need, and he had become friends with powerful people that he felt would impress her. Gatsby knew that Daisy felt something for him and was willing to do whatever it took to be with her, even if it meant going against her husband, “your wife doesn’t love you, she never loved you, she loves me “Fitzgerald 73).
Having a miserable life, Winston had to just deal with everything and live day to day. After Julia’s confession of love, he suddenly felt as if he had a purpose and he needed to find a way to live his life in his own way rather than the party’s. The form of rebellion, love, played a major role in Winston’s revolt against the inner party. If Winston did not have the trait of curiosity, he would have never rebelled. Curiosity was a major part of this book and without it, 1984 could not be the same.
