Lear’s madness was addressed in the very first scene and then continued to pop up quite frequently as the story went on. Kent called Lear out for being mad when he banished his daughter Cordelia after she wouldn’t tell him how much she loved him (1.1.146).

Tom is called to testify for a falsely accused man that has been charged with murder, and Tom was at the site, unnoticed when it happened. With the true murderer in the courtroom, Tom "was badly scared" (Twain 214) and conflicted on whether or not to tell the whole story, knowing that Injun Joe would without a doubt, kill him. "Tom began-hesitatingly at first" (Twain 216) and decided to put the wellbeing and condition of the falsely accused man before his own safety and life. Understandably, Tom only hesitated because he was very nervous and traumatized by the whole situation, as any 11-year-old boy should

Meanwhile, his divorced mother was very supportive and helped him to find the solution to his Tourette’s.
In this excerpt of the short story, a biblical allusion is evident. The allusion to the forbidden fruit, the apple, was used when the father threw an apple at Gregor making the reader and Gregor realize that physical action could be done to him; it is now apparent that the family, or at least the dad, wants to get rid of him. It breaks the humorous tone of the piece, with the fantasy idea of being turned into a bug, into a more serious one with the realistic prospect of Gregor being wounded or killed. Throughout the piece, Gregor’s father has always expressed contempt towards Gregor because of Gregor’s “unhappy and hateful” state but never directly took action until now (Kafka 65). The way how this scene breaks the seemingly imaginative piece

It knocked the wind out of Cody; all he could do was gasp beneath Ezra 's warm, bony weight.” He just shot her mother with an arrow (Tyler) “In Cody 's version, it was Ezra 's mistrust and interference that actually caused their mother 's injury, but it was he who was blamed for it. Cody devotes the rest of his life to evening the score: playing practical jokes on Ezra, hiding his belongings, manufacturing evidence against him, and finally stealing his fiancee. This last betrayal, in particular, replicates Pearl 's long-ago injury, especially in its traumatic effect on everyone involved” (Sweeney 11). Cody 's memory of the archery incident, then, continues to shape his sense of his own identity and of his relationship to his younger
Entry One On page twelve of Holes, Stanley gets to the camp and meets Mr. Sir for the first time. Because the camp was so far away, both the bus driver and guard felt understandably irritated. In fact, the guard stated, “Nine hours here, and now nine hours back… What a day.” Stanley “felt a little sorry for the guard and the bus driver” for putting them through the trouble. This reminds me of how in the book Wringer, Palmer feels guilty about a mistake he made. When he is hiding his pet pigeon, Nipper, from the world who wants to kill him, he accidentally left one of Nipper’s toys in his room for the critics to see.
When my grandmother called me, I’d say, ‘Yes ma’am.’ I wanted to say, ‘Why do you hit me? Am I really a bad child? Why do you treat me like I’m not part of your family?’” As I’m reading his story he has a very remarkable story in my opinion, and he’s a perfect reason we need to change this system. He wanted to tell the cops or his social worker but he was afraid to because he would be hit by his foster grandma. For some children this may not even work but it is definitely worth a shot to help these kids like Deshon.
