In sealand people are very forgiving of of the sins the people make and they do not care about deformities that some people might have. However the people of waknuk are not as forgiving. Especially Joseph Storm who is david's father, who beats david when he said “I could managed it all right by myself if I’d had another hand” (26). After this statement had been said Joseph had beaten david very badly. On the other hand the people from the fringes are not forgiving of the people from waknuk because they were outcast from there.
In the story, while Squeaky is perfectly fine, Raymond is mildly abnormal and not “quite right” which is why he can be regarded as mentally retarded. Because of this reason, Squeaky never leaves her older brother alone so that he does not get in trouble or get lost and nobody may cause him any sort of trouble. She plays the role of Raymond's, friend, sister and bodyguard. This relationship between Raymond and Squeaky clearly expresses the significance of a familial relationship in their lives. I also like how Squeaky understands her brothers problems and stands out for him in the story because she states “And I’ve got an roomful of ribbons and medals and awards.
Edna even says herself, “I would give up the unessential…my money…my life for my children, but not myself.” For her life, Edna realized that means her marriage and physical life. As far as her marriage, Edna was never truly happy with her marriage with Leonce. Furthermore, Edna states she truly cares for her children, but sometimes her search for herself may conflict with this. This then further discourages readers even more due to the fact that this gives insight to her actions, and somewhat justifies them. In addition, the search for self-identity is viewed as important in today’s society.
Though George is very forgiving towards Lennie when he unintentionally makes their life more burdensome , Lennie is still left with guilt. This shame is so heavy , that it leads him to have visions of his deceased Aunt Clara telling him that “‘All the time [George] coulda had such a good time if it wasn’t for you...But he got to take care of you’” (99). Lennie’s guilty visions portray Steinbeck’s opinion on the role of society to the helpless by accentuating how truly helpless Lennie is. Lennie’s inability to control his actions
Pilate grew up without much parental support, but the fact that this lack of meaningful relationships did not cause her “real misery” emphasizes just how much she cares about her daughters.The immeasurable love Pilate has for her daughter greatly contrasts the nearly invisible feelings Milkman has for his own close family, yet it would lead one to believe that she would at least gain something over Milkman for her selflessness. Indeed, this selflessness is brought up once again at the climax of the book as Pilate lays dying in Milkman’s arms, telling him to, “watch Reba for [her]”, then adding on, “I wish I’d a knowed more people. I would of loved ‘em all,” as if it was an afterthought (Morrison 336). Even as she lay dying, Pilate’s thoughts are elsewhere, concerning the welfare of her only remaining daughter, instead of acknowledging her own physical state. A majority of society would agree that these numerous acts of selflessness would justify a reward or salvation; yet in this case, Pilate simply
So she didn't really care about those people, but as Esperanza had to live the lifestyle of fear for deportation, she felt bad for the people who were deported. To sum it all up, Esperanza went from riches to rags, bratty to well behaved, and from not working at all to working very hard thanks to her experiences throughout the book. Looks like being poor was more beneficial than being rich. I think kids nowadays could learn a thing or two from Esperanza about working hard, not having an attitude, and respecting/ helping people not as wealthy as
