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.
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.
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. A boy is someone who is immature and insecure in their life.
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.
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.
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! But one man’s destiny is more than blest—he who prevails, and takes you as his bride.
“The devil is waiting for them, hell is gaping for them, the flames gather and flash about them, and would fain lay hold on them, and swallow them up.” (Edwards) The differences in the Bradstreet’s poem, God was taking the house to help her move on with her life. “It was His own, it was not mine, far be it that I should repine; he might of all justly bereft.” (Bradstreet)
Tessie Hutchinson even joked Bill Hutchinson about drawing his paper, “‘Get up there, Bill,’” Mrs. Hutchinson said, and the people near her laughed” (Jackson 4). Everyone around them even thought it was funny because what are the chances he would draw it, right? But when it was the Hutchinsons who had been picked it was not okay. “‘You didn’t give him time enough to take any paper her wanted, I saw you.
Everyone has to deal with coming of age but it happens differently for everyone. It could be having to learn to be independent or learning that no one is perfect. In To Kill a Mockingbird, by Harper Lee shows off the theme of coming of age pretty well. The book tells a story of a young girl 's life and how some things aren’t as you imagine them. She always thought one of her neighbors was a creepy old man who never comes out of his house
None of the 7 families seen this as a laughing matter so all students were given escorts to class and interviewed on Fox News. The incident did not excel, because my parents felt as if Whitewater was lackadaisical for the safety of minority citizens, so we moved to Chicago. (Where my dad is
The day that Gatsby died showed how invested he was on winning Daisy back. He had no friends to attend his funeral except Nick, the postman, his dad, owl eyes, and a few of his servants. The so called “love of his life” didn’t even show up to his funeral. This shows how one person can become so focused on an imaginary reality/dream that they forget to focus on the present, and make their life worth living in the
