This ultimate desire for the monster to belong serves as a justification for his benevolence which contradicts the false conclusions many people thought of him. The author goes on to advance her claim by revealing the creation’s desire for a companion: “Sometimes I allowed my thoughts, unchecked by reason, to ramble in the fields of Paradise, and dared to fancy amiable and lovely creatures sympathizing with my feelings and cheering my gloom; their angelic countenances breathed smiles of consolation. But it was all a dream; no Eve soothed my sorrows nor shared my thoughts; I was alone. I remembered Adam's supplication to his Creator. But where was mine?” (Shelley 101).
Since there were so many “young men her father had driven away,” it can be inferred that Emily’s father was a very unwelcoming man who did not believe any male was good enough to meet the Grierson standards (Faulkner 55). As stated by Victor Strandberg, “driving away her suitors so as to keep her housekeeping services for himself, Emily 's father has ruined her chances for a normal life” (par. 3). After the death of Mr. Grierson, all that Emily had left was herself and the house because of the seclusion her father created. However, she could have willingly escaped this confinement because her father was no longer there to set rules for her.
Fear and anguish unlike anything he’d ever experienced settled on Walter” (56). Walter McMillian went from hope to fear and anguish. This also shows that Walter went to despair because he lost all hope to be released from prison. Walter didn’t receive justice, and in so his life went into poverty because his reputation was ruined, he was found guilty and faced death
Perry’s sister, Barbara viewpoint is that if any person kills somebody and had the intent and you know you have done something wrong, you are guilty and should take responsibility for your actions. Barbara states “Your letter implies that the blame of all your problems is that of someone else, but never you. I do admit that you are intelligent, and your vocabulary is excellent, and I do feel you can do anything you decide to do and do it well but what exactly, so you want to and are you willing to work and make an honest effort to attain whatever it is you choose to do? Nothing good comes easy and I’m sure you’ve heard this many time but once more won’t hurt” (141). She points out that he needs to stop blaming
They tell how the war changed and shaped their lifestyles and most importantly their friendships. Bosnian people lost faith, because people they lived with became their enemies. They were losing their friends, homes, everything that was important for them. Losing friends is even worse
This is supporting my earlier claim because Parker doesn't care what it would feel like to be told by you son that he is the devil. Also, Squeaky is disrespectful to Gretchen, Mary Louise, and Rosie. “I always win cause I’m the best,” I say straight at Gretchen “What grade you in now, Raymond?” “You got anything to say to my brother, you say it to me, Mary Louise Williams of Raggedy Town, Baltimore.” “What are you, his mother?” sasses Rosie. “That’s right, Fatso. And the next word out of anybody and I’ll be their mother too.”¨ Squeaky clearly states that she is better than Gretchen and that she will lose the May Day Race(The May Day Race is a race in N.Y.C), She calls Mary Louise raggedy, and Rosie fat(which she actually is but that is unpleasant to say to someone).
I looked upon them as superior beings who would be the arbiters of my future destiny. I formed in my imagination a thousand pictures of presenting myself to them, and their reception of me. I imagined that they would be disgusted, until, by my gentle demeanour and conciliating words, I should first win their favour and afterwards their love” (chapter 12). The monster’s desire for familial affection and love makes him a sympathetic character and deeply human. Yet it also drives him to commit his immoral acts.
He is a good lawyer, and this emotion he can perceive helps him with his job. Atticus destroyed Mr. Ewell’s reputation, even though he had little to begin with. “So if spitting in my face and threatening me saved Mayella Ewell one extra beating, that’s something I’ll gladly take” (Lee 218). Atticus knows that Mr. Ewell beat his daughter, and Atticus is willing to take some bullying to help out another person. Mayella has a family that doesn’t help or care for her.
Oedipus’s duty as King is to resolve any conflicts, including the mystery of the murder of King Laius. His pride takes over, and Oedipus becomes very single-minded. His cynical stubbornness writes the story itself, “Let the storm burst, my fixed resolve still holds, / To learn my lineage, be it ne’er so low. / It may be she will all a woman’s pride / Thinks scorn of my base parentage. But I / who rank myself as fortune’s favorite child, / the giver of good gifts, shall not be shamed… nothing can make me other than I am” (Sophocles, 1077-1086).
Throughout the story Montresor and Fortunato show that they are both very clever, but one of them becomes far more clever than the other. Characterization proves the theme that Fortunato's insults make an enemy of Montresor. Montresor becomes vindictive when Fortunato’s insults start turning towards his family. Montresor’s family motto is no one punishes him and gets away with it (Fields). This gives reason to believe that honor dictated that Montresor avenge the insults Fortunato laid at his feet.
With this in mind, Cathy lives a comfortable life, manipulating Mr. Edwards’ self-torturing love to pamper her and cater to her desires. Nonetheless, Cathy fails to delude him well enough, allowing him to see past her disguise to reveal the true, devil-like Cathy; her failure and poor foresight almost results in her death, and Mr. Edwards is the first to terrify her. Soon after her traumatic experience with Mr. Edwards, the Trask brothers take her in. Her beauty and frailness attracts Adam’s attention and sympathy, to which the narrator adds, “She needed protection and money. Adam could give her both.
It is a privilege to be able to take care of one 's appearance. Most importantly, it is a privilege to be free from captivation... to not feel like you are drowning alive, to not be drowning in your own tears. For Gwendolyn Foster, it seems almost securing that her crazy father has been sentenced to this hell on Earth. However, when Gwendolyn meets someone there who seems as destructive as a bomb, someone who tests all of her self-control, someone who she
In lines (448-455) Creon expresses his feelings on the situation. “She laughs at what she’s done. Well, in this case, if she gets her way and goes unpunished, then she’s the man here, not me. No. She may be my sister’s child, closer to me by blood than anyone belonging to my house who worships Zeus in my home, but she’ll not escape my harshest punishment.” He figured that she would starve to death but when he went back to check on her, she killed herself.
When Douglass moves to Baltimore he is thrilled to see that his Mistress Sophia Auld is a kind woman. However, things take an unfortunate change of events when Ms. Auld lets the power of owning another person corrupt her. “But, alas! this kind heart had but a short time to remain such.The fatal poison of irresponsible power was already in her hands, and soon commenced its infernal work. That cheerful eye, under the influence of slavery, soon became red with rage; that voice, made all of sweet accord, changed to one of harsh and horrid discord; and that angelic face gave place to that of a demon”(Narrative).
His inner pain demolishes the happiness he once had and changes his personality entirely. He loses the relationship with his family and takes out his emotions on his son. Many others are affected by this death as well, such as Antoine’s grandmother. She knows something no one else does and that prevents her from speaking. Antoine states “I could see it in her eyes.
