Previous to his arrival, Nurse Ratched would scold and lecture patients acting out of line, but after the discovery of the ward party, Nurse Ratched grills into Billy Bibbit about sleeping with a prostitute and then comforts the frantic Billy, the whole time Chief describes she “glares at us as she spoke.” (272). This action, intended to draw guilt in McMurphy, exemplifies Nurse Ratched’s poor judgement choice since McMurphy’s arrival. The Nurse Ratched pre-McMurphy would’ve appropriately taken care of the Billy issue, but now upset and angry at McMurphy for the party he’s thrown, her judgement is impaired by trying to make McMurphy feel guilty, which ultimately leads to Billy’s suicide. In general, McMurphy’s arrival and antics played a very negative role in Nurse Ratched’s mental health, which can be seen declining throughout the
McMurphy then proceeds to attack Ratched and attempts to strangle her. Unfortunately, like Billy Bibbit, McMurphy becomes a victim of Nurse Ratched’s wrath which teaches the truism: never
Blanche’s desire to be sexually active destroyed her life, ultimately causing her to be exiled from her town. Blanche was a woman with a standard career as a school teacher but due to her highly inappropriate behavior towards male students, she had to take a leave of absence. “I’ve got to be good -- and keep my hands off the children.” (Scene 5). Blanche’s behavior is nowhere near being that iconic southern belle and although she is highly dependent towards men, the dependency is not in anyway a southern woman would behave.
The author Ammaniti uses contrast between Antonio Natale and Michele Amitrano through personalities, and the child world and adult world through challenges and obstacles. Contrast between Antonio and Michele is evident when Antonio demands Barbara Mura to show her genitals, as in Antonio’s perspective she lost the race, not Michele, so she must perform the forfeit. This is because Antonio has something against Barbara, so “his sadistic mind got to work” (page 19) and he decided on her to do something humiliating in front of all the other boys. This impacts the audience as they would feel disgusted with Antonio, and sympathy for Barbara.

In a panic, Mary hysterically turned on Hale, probably for the sole reason that he was the first person she saw when anxiety clouded and took over her thought process. “You are the Devil’s man! He come at me by night and every day to sign.” The only reason she had started to go after Proctor was to save herself from Abigail, who was acting like Mary was possessing her by mocking everything she said. The only reason Abigail did this was because she was scared, as well.
I went home that day very upset and my mom questioned me. I told my mom about the bully and she told me that the bully was only making fun of me because she was jealous of me. My mom used to tell me that if anyone was mean to me to ignore it because they were only saying mean things because they were self conscious and unhappy with themselves. Holden, in J.D. Salinger’s Catcher in the Rye, is a teenage boy who finds the faults in everything and everyone.

He seated himself and looked at me with withering scorn”. Not even saying a word, this man has Jacobs uneasy and her children fearful. When he does finally open his mouth is it to mock her by saying her master is tired of her, laughing in her face, and ridiculing her in front of her children. Being told all of these horrible qualities that Jacobs apparently has with her children present is demening. Although her children know that the doctor is a terrible man, having those kind of thoughts ringing though her head must have been awful for her mental state.
I’m sure you have heard of the knight school’s legend, Mr. Gawaine le Cœur-Hardy, but if living under a rock all your life is your kind of thing, then I’ll fill you in. Gawaine le Cœur-Hardy used to attend the knight school. He broke the record of most dragons slayed and continues to hold it. No one has been able to kill 50 dragons since! Many people knew him as the hero, but what most don’t know is how he accomplished the hero status or how he fell from the pedestal we placed him on.
Research Analysis My research paper is based on the analysis of two characters on the CW show The 100. Bellamy Blake and Octavia Blake are the only known pair of siblings on the ark for the past 97 years. I am analyzing the aspect that since they are siblings how that dynamic affects their personality and character growth from their life on the Ark to The Ground, also known as, Earth. My primary source of my research paper is the television show itself, which is not only premiered on live television but, on Netflix as well. There are two key scenes that explains the diversity of their relationship throughout the show.
