For example, when he first steps foot back in his own homeland, he immediately must disguise himself as a beggar. Due to this façade, Odysseus is treated horribly by the suitors, who have overrun his palace. One of these suitors, Melanthios, even physically abuses Odysseus when he “kicked at Odysseus’ hip as he passed by” (17.298). Yet he still decides to control his anger and not fight back, despite being constantly provoked. Another instance in which Odysseus has to overcome difficulties once he is home is when Antinoos, another suitor, begins to verbally attack him.
One reason why he becomes evil is because he loses his home inside Prynne. As Chillingworth sees Prynne at the scaffold, he despairs in finding his “warmth and cheerfulness of home, set up as a type of sin before the people”(90). Even though Chillingworth preferred knowledge over relationships, he has hopes that Prynne will bring out emotion out of him. He expects that being with Prynne would allow him to have a place to call home and happiness. But as soon as he learns what happened, Chillingworth understands that he can no longer turn back time and stay by Prynne’s side.
so he shall never know how I love him”, and Heathcliff cannot believe his ears (59). After years of friendship and flirtation, Catherine decides that he is not sufficient for her, thus, breaking Heathcliff’s heart. A tidal wave of rage and fervor washes over him as he replays the words in his head, trying to comprehend. Shifting his body weight to his right side, the floorboard beneath Heathcliff creaks, causing Nelly to turn and catch a glimpse of him before he slips away. As quickly as Catherine broke his heart, Heathcliff runs, in a feeble attempt to escape this gnawing feeling of rejection.
That also made her become more vulnerable to the real dangers and the evilness that exists in the world. That danger was represented by an old man who pretends to be an eighteen year old boy that seduced and kidnaped Connie. The end of the story Joyce Carol Oates leaves it open to the readers, because that way it makes the reader think of what might have happened, whether she got raped or whether she is killed, after the main character leaves with the antagonist of the story. Oates shows that ignorance, narcissism and the lack of
The Crucible - Conflict Analysis John Proctor Internal: John Proctor’s most eminent internal conflict is over the sin he has committed, adultery. Proctor cheated on his wife with Abigail Williams, and this makes Proctor feel incredibly guilty because in the town, he is “respected and even feared” (19). He tried very hard, and succeeded, with keeping this moral crime to himself. He still walked about Salem as if he was “an untroubled soul,” (21) however, avoiding the sin again would be a difficult task. Abigail flirts with him, in attempt to have him for one last night, and it’s obvious Proctor has an arduous time pushing her away.
Holden’s obsession stems from his fear that he may become a phony one day. So, he spends the book running from adulthood by doing childish things and struggling to keep his life from changing. We see Holden’s fear of phonies shine throughout The Catcher in the Rye. Why does he have this fear?

You also see Holling dissatisfaction with his life when he feels like he needs to have guts against Doug Switetick’s brother who was charging towards him. You could also call Holling immature due to the fact that he insults Meryl Lee for no reason. The story continues and some small events happen but then occasionally big events happen. My first big event would be when he has to clean the chalk boards and gets a cream puff out of it.
The king feels sorry for himself. He feels that it is not fair that others, even the poor and vile, be able to sleep, and that he, the king, be deprived of rest. He asks sleep why it discriminates against him, and not the commoners, the loathsome members of society, or a ship-boy, whom sleep could lead to death. Henry IV 's indignation is evident as he employs powerful images to contrast his noble situation with the deplorable state of the masses.
Willie’s poisonous influence is that he decides to give favors to people he is sleeping with, even if it is for a good cause and that is why the affairs make him corrupt, because he is not making legitimate decisions based off of facts. In the end his affairs are his downfall as Sadie revealing the truth behind it led to Adam Stanton killing him
John Proctor fears his name’s identity, which is evident near the end of the play when he resists Deputy Danforth and Reverend Hale’s posting his name on the church door, accusing him of witchcraft (IV.712-717). John Proctor is Elizabeth Proctor’s husband, who involved in an affair with Abigail Williams when she was still working as the Proctor’s maid. Elizabeth fires Abigail, once she realizes her maid and her husband’s covert relationship. Elizabeth’s dismissal causes Abigail to become very angry, for women had little power at the time, let alone unmarried women like herself. By playing her Mafia-like wailing and doll piercing games and forcing the other Salem girl to participate, Abigail determines to terminate Elizabeth and keep John for herself (460-473).

The minister and Hester both fail to let the rest of the colony know that it was the two together who brought a wicked sin into their Puritan lifestyle. Instead of being honest with himself and everyone around, Dimmesdale and Hester cover up their secret until it is physically impossible for him to resist confessing against the wish of his lover. Living a lifestyle of purity and honesty are both very important throughout Hawthorne’s The Scarlet Letter. Hawthorne places heavy emphasis on the fact that living a life away from honesty and purity is hard on not only the body, but also the soul, when one is not honest with the mistakes they have made.
