An example of change is when Raphael said “We stuck together we stayed in the dark.” I understand from this that rat has changed into a boy with friends and who is cared for.

Raphael and Gardo approached Rat, without them approaching him he would still be without family and lonely. Rat started off as an alone unnoticed boy at a dumpsite.
Richard Cory is a man who is greatly admired and slightly envied in his town. The townspeople state, “In fine, we thought that he was everything to make us wish that we were in his place,” (Robinson 11-12). The townspeople “worked, and waited for the light, and went without the meat, and cursed the bread,” just so they could have the life of Richard Cory. (Robinson 13-14) The poem ends by saying, “And Richard Cory, one calm summer night, Went home and put a bullet through his head,” (Robinson 15-16). This poem points out the fact that many people believe that others are happy by the front they put forward.
However, one thing is consistent through the paragraphs, and that is the collective agreement that something is amiss with this ritual. There is the opinion of the man, who organizes the ceremony, Mr. Summer’s own opinion, “Mr. Summers spoke frequently to the villages about making a new box, but no one liked to upset even as much tradition as was represented by this black box” (p. 27 l. 1-3). Although he has an essential role in the lottery, Mr. Summers does not seem to appreciate the complete ritual, but for him some parts of it outweighs others, quite like the children’s eagerness to collect stones. The ritual appears hollow then, as if the boxes are interchangeable as long as the outcome remain the same.

While Joe is admiring Pip’s writing by the fireplace in their home, Pip asks why Joe never learned to read. Joe then explains that his father was an abusive drinker, and he kept removing Joe from schooling. Charles Dickens writes, “rendering unto all their doo, and maintaining equal justice betwixt man and man, my father were that good in his hart, don’t you see?”(35). This demonstrates that Joe is forgiving because even though his father ruined his childhood, Joe still stated that he was good in his heart. Joe’s father kept him out of school, beat him and his mother, and even would track them down if they were to run away.
Of Mice and Men was published in 1937 during a time of bi-racism between the caucasians and the african americans, and the apathetic Great Depression, which may have served as inspiration. In the novel two opposites attract, a gargantuan but mentally challenged man by the name of Lennie, and a small, nimble, and intelligent man named George. Suffering from a mental illness Lennie gets into trouble when he 's alone, but George always saves him, George knows Lennie doesn 't do anything, “out of meanness” as he says. Undoubtedly the reader assimilates that Lennie kills a young lady, said to have done so accidentally. Furthermore without any control George was forced to kill Lennie.
While admiring children for their kindness, genuine nature and innocence, he believes in the idea that adult corruption has ruined virtuous children. In the novel he states how he wants children to be protected from vulgarity and therefore wants to be ‘The Catcher in the Rye’: the one who rescues adolescents from falling into, what he considers to be, the phoniness of adulthood. Throughout the novel, Holden has a positive attitude towards children and these relationships are essential to him. When Holden found out about the tragic death of his younger brother, Allie, he was devastated. He ‘slept in the garage’ and ‘broke all the goddam windows’.

This passage reveals that the mother is crestfallen that her son, Herbert didn’t come back.
At the end of the store, these secrets are divulged. Whenever Amir lets Hassan get rapped by the bully, Assef, readers realize that Hassan isn’t the person portrayed at the beginning of the book. This is especially shown whenever Amir keeps this as a secret for the ongoing years. If he would have tried to help Hassan, then readers would be able to sympathize toward both characters, not just Hasan. The reasoning behind Amir’s innocence in the situation is because he was “scared,” he didn’t want to “confront” Assef.

Equality 7-2521 starts the novel as misguided, who has just never understood that he is not quite the same as everyone around him. When Equality 7-2521 incidentally returns late to the Home of the Street Sweepers, he postponed to tell his Home Council where he has been, and is thrown into the Palace of Corrective Detention, where he 's beaten. "Take our brother Equality 7-2521 to the Palace of Corrective Detention. Lash them until they tell" (64). The refusal to account for himself, based on how the Elders treated him and his lightbulb , was strengthening the thought of "self", which until this minute was truly not understood.
Should the mentally challenged get another chance if they have killed someone and could do it again. No one should get another chance if they have committed a crime worthy of the death penalty. They should not get another chance because everyone is taught right from wrong and in John Steinbeck 's book Of Mice and Men Lennie Knew what he did was wrong and that is why he went to the creek where George told him to go if he ever got in trouble like he had before and he would again. George is justified in killing Lennie because he knew Lennie kill again and would never get better and their dream would never come true, it was a mercy killing and was the best thing for Lennie at that moment, and George knew Lennie would keep making the same mistakes and eventually would make one that even he could not forgive him for. That is why George is justified.
While this novel does have profanity and sexual references, it still deserves to be taught in high school because Holden shows how having a negative attitude towards life does not get a person far. In the beginning of the novel Holden tells the reader that "[Pencey] kick[s] [him] out [of their school]" (6) because he "was [failing] four subjects and not applying [himself]" (6). However, he does not just notify the reader, he notifies them in a way of forgetting to mention that he is no longer going to be attending Pencey. Holden passes this off as some minor detail when in reality it is not just a minor detail. Later on, Holden reveals to the reader that this is not the first school where he has gotten expelled.
