[After a slight pause] What the hell are you offering me a job for? CHARLEY: Don’t get insulted. WILLY: Don’t insult me. (Act 1) Willy has always tried to act like he is cooler than Charley. In reality, though, he's always been really jealous of his neighbor.
His wife is simply comforting and enabling him consistently while he and Happy possess no substantial relationship outside of the lies they both share. Understandably, Biff cannot stand his father. This isolation from those who loves him most is making him more miserable, although he seems unaware of it. In the end, Willy failed to see the happiness and fulfillment his family could
Upon entering the world of Harry Potter, readers are enlightened about a “boy who lived,” yet as the books continue it becomes evident that Harry Potter only survives with the help of allies and friendships. Harry relies on his strong friendships, without them he wouldn’t survive. One solid friendship, in particular is Ron Weasley, who has had Harry’s back since day one on the Hogwarts express. Ron quickly becomes the greatest friend Harry would ever need, giving Harry a family and someone to lean on. By means of Harry’s fame, Ron may be hidden in Harry’s shadow, described as an underdog or a sidekick, but despite this, Ron Weasley displays a great sense of devotion towards, not only Harry but everyone he cares about.
Both characters realized that hard work is necessary to get what they want and that success is not a result of popularity. Bernard recognizes this much earlier in his life and becomes successful from an early age. This highlights how fathers play a crucial role in character development. Ironically Biff is similar to Willy, even though he refuses to admit it. Through this, Miller implies that all humans have inherited traits from their parents that cannot be denied.
However, as Rebekkah’s sons differ significantly in their personalities and skills, Essau is physically strong and muscular while Jacob is intelligent and witty, God’s prophecy about them may indicate a different form of dominance, independent of birth order. He only confesses His foresight to Rebekkah and because she is aware of this, she favors Jacob even though he is the younger son. Meanwhile, Issac is unaware of God’s conversation with Rebekkah, he favors Essau because he is older and “because he had a taste for game” (GEN, 25:28). One of Rebekkah’s greatest contributions to implementing God’s prophecy is when she helps Jacob earn Issac’s final blessing despite Issac favoring Essau. She overhears Issac, in his deathbed, asking Essau to hunt and
Okonkwo was raised by his father Unoka who never earned any titles. Unoka was a sensitive man who never relished at the thought of war, but found joy in playing his flute. Unoka did not have the greatest luck when it came to farming, this caused him to end up in a lot of debt that he couldn’t pay back. Unlike his father, Okonkwo had no problem with the idea of war. Okonkwo grew up resenting his father for not being stronger and more masculine.
He never financially hurt individuals, but simply businesses that could easily recover. Abagnale felt guilty for his crimes as a youth and wished that he did not have to complete them. However, Abagnale was pushed into the life of crime and had no other choice. Abagnale was never seeking to financially or mentally hurt others, but was simply taking advantage of opportunities, as well as doing everything he could to live. It is important for everyone in the world to know that Frank Abagnale is a kind hearted person that should never be viewed as an overall negative individual.
As far as Fenwick’s concerned, Foster is blamed for his failure in career because Foster, somehow, has always surpassed him in every work. Even Foster’s character: “He could not bear to be disliked; he hated that anyone should think ill of him; he wanted everyone to be his friend” (241) utterly contradicts to that of Fenwick: “He did not want friends; he certainly did not care that people should like him” (241). And why did he ask Foster for a walk and show him his tarn on the hill? Wasn’t he having “some further design in this” (243)? There is no evidence that the murder of Foster has been arranged in advance, but perhaps the severe hatred and envy have developed so deeply within Fenwick’s mind that in a moment he decided to push his friend into the cold water of the tarn which is, in his perception, his real partner.
He doesn’t show up much in the book, but when he does it’s nothing but trouble which is why he’s such an important minor character. Pap Finn is a very good example of minor and antagonist character types, he represents themes like denial, and he relates to many characters outside of this book. Pap Finn is arguably a very important minor character. Despite the fact that he was abusive, he stressed out his son, and all he wanted from his kid was his money, he was still an important part of the book. Huck was never fond of his father.
Since not even Simon was able to change the boys, they do not even deserve to be saved. Simon, who was purely good, had not evil within him, could not even enlighten the boys, there is no chance for the boys to be helped. The evil within all of them overpowers the good that be there as well, however, when one is given the opportunity to choose, they will turn to evil. It is difficult not to be tempted just as "Piggy and Ralph, under the threat of the sky, found themselves eager to take a place in this demented but partly secure society" (Golding 152). The boys constantly become savage and follow Jack because it is easier, it is safer.
