At the beginning of the “The Minister’s Black Veil,” everyone talked to Hooper but at the end no one did and the community wanted him to take it off. “In the minister's black veil the reverend Mr.Hooper startles his congregation by appearing for Sunday services with a black piece of cloth over his face. he wears the veil for the rest of his life, refusing to remove it even from his deathbed. he protests, he must display this symbol of evil to save as a moral example.” Mr.Hooper wore the black veil everywhere and his deathbed Mr.Hooper would not take it off because of his hidden sin. “love is there for Hooper, nut the veil prevents him from seeing or enjoying it” Love is always a present for Hooper.
The men on the ranch travel by themselves and have no real connections to each other. Curley's wife spends her days wandering around the ranch, hoping someone will be open to having a conversation with. Crooks is completely isolate and has to live in a small room next to the barn because he has a different skin tone compared to all the ranch workers. Lastly, Candy feels lonely and isolated since he is separated from the other men after losing his hand and losing his dog. I think one of the morals of the story is that everyone needs someone to talk to in order to survive.
I predict Scout and Jem will not meet Boo Radley because he is locked up and they are afraid of him. The first reason that Scout and Jem will not meet Boo is because all the doors and windows of the house are closed up. This helps prove that Boo is locked up because no one in town leaves their doors and windows closed up because everyone knows everyone and there are few secrets in Maycomb. If the doors and windows are locked up it shows that no one is living there. Another reason Boo is locked up because he stabbed his dad in the leg.
Picture being so scared walking home alone that you had to carry a switchblade around. In The Outsiders Ponyboy, and his friends who are called the greasers, live in a violent, bad neighborhood without their parents. They are against a group called Socs who are a higher class, in a much better neighborhood and they jump the greasers all the time out of nowhere. The setting causes the characters to be tense and anxious, for example, Johnny and Darry who can never calm down and loosen up. They always have to look behind their back everywhere they go.
His last journal entry is where he wants Grant to tell Miss Emma “im strong tell them im a man…”(234). That was all Miss Emma ever wanted from the man she has raised and now will go into that chair with “some dignity,”(49). Ernest Gaines alludes Jefferson as God to represent him becoming a hero. Both were good people, both were accused of something they didn’t do, both died on a friday afternoon between noon and 3, both were executed by someone who had more power than them. Although Jefferson loses the most important things that make him a man, with effort, affection, teachings and love he regains the things that were once stripped away from him.
His dull and average life seemingly pushes him to the brink and makes him start wondering what the point of his existence is if he was “...the surest person to perform nothing today…” (Hawthorne 1). At a certain point even he was bored of himself, which is interesting because he can’t stand being the ideal guy. It makes the reader ask themselves why society sets these standards that make people miserable and unhappy. At the start of “Bartleby the Scrivener”, Bartleby already is miserable and unhappy. Though the narrator originally leads the reader to believe that this is because Bartleby works day and night with “...no pause for digestion” and hardly speaks to his co workers, it is because life has already worn him out (Melville 11).
Crooks he is lonely because he is the only black person at the job. “Many people don’t come in the niggers ranch very much”(70) he told Lennie “Growing up I always been the only black family,or black man in a place.”(70) In the book it’s proven that Crooks is lonely because when Lennie came into to his ranch he began to mess with him and act like someone hurt George and he was not coming back he did this because he usually does not get to have fun He stop before Lennie hurts him he does this because he usually never gets to have any fun with anyone because no one is ever around. Crooks has it really hard the boss takes his anger out on Crooks. He is not allowed in the ranch there really one thing he can do if he gets lucky and that is play horseshoes outside the
In it, betrayal exists in two main forms: death and forsaking friends. After Gatsby is murdered, none of his ‘friends’ show up to his funeral. Even when Nick asks a common partygoer, Klipspringer, to to the funeral, he is more concerned about “a pair of shoes” he left and wonders if “it would be too much trouble to have the butler send them on” (Fitzgerald 169). Gatsby hosted countless parties with uncomparable entertainment, yet all of his guests ultimately ignore his death and funeral. Klipspringer “[cared] more about his lost tennis shoes” (Lewis 6) than the kind host of so many parties.
John Proctor, a character from The Crucible is a Rebel/Misfit Archetype. A Rebel/Misfit is defined as a character that radically rejects the values of a society and the restrictions placed on him or her. I chose to do my research project on John because Proctor is my favorite character from The Crucible and throughout the whole book he was feeling guilty for his actions but wanted to do the right thing. Proctor can also fit into the Hero Archetype for sacrificing his life to save his wife. Back in the 1690s, not going to church every Sunday was a sin and could be punishable by death.
When Odysseus comes back to find the suitors hungry for his wife, he devises a plan with his son to kill all the suitors. And just after he has done justice with the suitors, he and his wife can be together again. ‘ Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her’ (Ephesians 5:25). “If you are one of earth’s inhabitants, how blest your father, and your gentle mother, blest all your kin. I know what happiness must send the warm tears to their eyes, each time they see their wondrous child go to the dancing!
