Victor is the type of person that cannot handle responsibility well. We first see this in Chapter 3, after his mother’s death, “My mother was dead, but we had still duties which we ought to perform; we must continue our course with the rest and learn to think ourselves fortunate whilst one remains whom the spoiler has not seized.”
The frequency of these deaths is disturbing, and yet every summer swimmers return to her. Another specific example comes from 1977, which illustrates the trickeries of this pool. Bob DeMoss came from a working class home in nearby Springfield, Oregon. As was the expectation, after he obtained his driver’s license Bob had sought a
This incident shows the reader that she wants to be taken seriously by her colleagues. It also displays that Hilly deeply treasures her reputation because of her reaction towards the situation. On the other hand, Aunt Alexandra has also shown the reader signs that she values her family’s reputation. In chapter 23 of To Kill a Mockingbird, Aunt Alexandra did not allow Scout to play with Walter Cunningham because of his poor background. She said, “Because-he-is-trash, that’s why you can’t play with him.
Atticus is an unbiased in the way he gets his children to see different perspectives and accept others for what they are because he realized there is no major difference between them and himself. On page 39, Atticus is talking to Scout about Miss Caroline. He says, “You can never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view- until you climb into this skin and walk around in it.” This shows that Atticus never judges people until he can comprehend their views and this is important to the story because it explains why he fights for Scout’s dressing rights and agrees to the Tom Robinson case. Later in the story, on page 144 Atticus tells Scout “I do my best to love everybody...
His voice was gentle, not angry. “Your path is not your brother’s, it cannot be. Women are not made like men”(44). Puritans also raise their children to believe that any religion that is not theirs is either wrong or satanic. When Bethia encounters the people under the cliffs
In “Bedecked”, Redel raises attention about the different approaches to parenting in a situation when a parent’s son is more flamboyant than society would deem acceptable. Redel can handle the criticism and “other mothers looking”, but wanted none of it to change the purity of how her son “loves a beautiful thing not for what it means- / this way or that”(16-17). She ends her poem by asking readers if their “heart was ever once that brave”, for going against social norms and not confining to them (21-20). In addition to the older woman and younger man double standard, Calbert's “In Praise of My Young Husband” lists examples of the world’s different romances to note that there is not just one single type: “young lovers like to drink too much / and make a drunken, careless love, / why couples always cook so much” (19-22).
This story is convincing to the audience, and it enables them to look at Robinson’s talk with a critical mind and hence appreciate his assertion that indeed schools kill creativity. Robinson prompts the crowd to imagine further what it would be if they allowed children to explore their talents while still young. He mentions that the society is wary of making mistakes and the idea has been coined in the children’s minds that they grow up wishing to be experts and this shuts down their creativity( 5:21). Robinson provokes the crowd into thinking about William Shakespeare and makes a joke about his father shutting him down his style of speech since it was not clear to other people (7:28). The strategy is useful since it touches on people’s emotion and even allows them to imagine a way they would change their parenting
Another theme I think would go outstanding with the book and the poem is “The poor can be grumpy, but on the inside, they care about people.” I made this quote up because in the poem it 's describing how the poor child only wanted life to be simple and just make sure gods with him all the way. His wants were simple, and simple his creed, to trust God fully: it served his need. In my school, a kid who is very mean and no one likes him, but I talked to him the other day and he told me what was wrong with his mom and how he takes care of her, I think people just need to stop bullying people so they will not bully you back. This theme would go great with the book because it 's saying how on the inside they are nice, well, the Greasers are really nice to be honest probably nicer than the Socs.
The author also uses craft moves for example, foreshadowing and 1st person point of view in the story. It is not fair when people assume anything about other people because no one know if the things people hear are true or not. In the story “Charles”, Laurie’s mother believes that Charles is real because she believes what Laurie says about Charles. She also believes that Charles is the reason that Laurie is acting to bad. After Laurie tells his parents how bad Charles was,
Holden thought about James Castle when Phoebe asked him about what he likes, Holden randomly think about the two nuns and James Castle, but this is not a coincidence. James Castle is a Holden’s classmate at Elkton Hills, whom died nobly, not surrendering to Phil Stabile and his six friend’s oppression and violence about taking the word back about Stabile. Similarly, Holden seize the adult world with phoniness, and struggle though out his teenager life, willing to sacrifice himself to save children from falling into this phoniness world. Readers understand the significance about Holden’s worship to James Castle and is motivated by his action, but Holden sees very limited information about the significance between himself and James
Finally, this novel demonstrates how Scout’s character develops in various ways once she gets the chance to stand on Radley’s porch because she sees the world from his perspective due to why he disclosed himself from everyone else. As she stands there she also comes to understand that Boo was not the ghout that she and Jem have assumed from the very start and she certainly couldn’t believe that he saved her life. Besides she now gets to understand what her father meant by ‘you can 't understand a person until you consider things from his point of view...until you climb into his skin and walk around in it’ (page 39) The understanding Scout has finally had of the way people are perceived and the way they actually are. It shows that she has learnt what many people in their life never learn which is to have empathy for others.
He now sees it as his job to disabuse her of the notion that Hamlet could be acting honourable. With good intentions. Despite Ophelia’s defence of the Prince, her father dismisses the Laertes’ words with a cynical metaphor, saying that Hamlet’s apparent earnestness is merely a ply to catch Ophelia, a silly bird Drawing upon his own experiences when he was young, Polonius appears to be judging Hamlet by his own base standards, again echoing what his son had earlier said to Ophelia. A woman should bring honor and fortune to her family, and the image Ophelia gives off for him very much concerns Polonius. Both Laertes and Polonius tell her that the man that she loves is using her.
In the beginning of the book, Phillip Malloy was passionate to make it into Harrison school’s track team. He thought that being only good at running would automatically make him into the team, but his grades interfered with his chance at the team. He didn’t make it into the track team because he detested Miss. Narwin’s class and felt the book, The Call of the Wild was useless, so he put the most unnecessary response to an answer of his exam.
