Instead, Tybalt says to him, “As I hate hell, all Montagues, and thee,” and attacks him (1.1.66). Tybalt does not hate Benvolio for his personality even though they are complete opposites. He hates him just because he bears the name of Montague. A person’s name should not be what defines them but rather their words and actions. Tybalt does not see things peaceful like Benvolio.
Proctor serves as the voice of reason and justice. As he is the one, who knows the reality of Parris, so he is always anger with him and seldom go to the church. Parris is an example of appearance versus reality. As in his first appearance, he seems good father, who cares about his daughter but in the fact, he only cares about his reputation, as he says “they will howl me out of the Salem for such corruption in my house” (1.10). Parris has always disagreements with Proctor and both of them angry with each other.
Although Tybalt is loyal, he is also vengeful. The first example of Tybalt's vengeance occurs at the beginning of Romeo and Juliet when an argument between the Capulets and Montagues started by the Capulets turns into a street fight. “What drawn, and talk of peace? I hate the word/ As I hate all Montagues, and thee./ Have at thee, Coward!”( 1.1 72-74). Benvolio draws his sword to stop the fighting and Tybalt misinterprets this action, thinking he wants to
Presented throughout the whole novel Crane writes not about how life should be, but as how it was. In the beginning of the novel Mr. Johnson splits up a fight between Jimmie and a couple other boys. “Here, Jim, git up, now while I belt yer life out, you damned disorderly brat.” (Crane 39) Mr. Johnson dislikes the idea if Jimmie getting into fights and threatens him to beat him up. This shows hypocrisy because he is doing exactly what he is telling him not to do by beating him up. He also shows hypocrisy when getting mad at Jimmie for his involvement in the fight since he is surrounded by violence with him and his wife at home.
Judging by his character he is a very cruel and wicked man. In my opinion, in the novel, the red sweater symbolizes hatred, anger, cruelty, rage, or even a person who you will fear to approach just by looking at him because in the novel he is characterized as being an evil person who hates dogs and beats them like in this quote when it says: “He was beaten; but he was not broken. He saw once for all, that he stood no chance against a man with a club. He learned the
Having anger in general and furthermore acting upon his anger makes him less heroic. He replaces compassion with disrespect and discipline with revenge in his fighting. There is no point in calling someone a hero if their intentions are evil. Also as Agamemnon reflects upon his outburst of anger with Achilleus, admitting, “ Aged sir, this was no lie when you spoke of my madness. I was mad, I myself will not deny it.” (IX 115).
As he is very critical of Hester, the words in his sentences tend to be negative. These negative words are all meant to “wound” Hester Prynne. Due to their bullet point format, Lawrence is expressing this very plainly. This allows him to show his disapproval of Hester as he feels that Hester’s sin is unforgivable and she should be shunned for eternity instead of painted as a hero, which is what Hawthorne
In Of Mice and Men violence is extremely prevalent and also a major theme. Each character is so accustomed to their misfortune and failure, which results in them becoming agitated and more frustrated with each other. Violence and bullying are used as outlets for their stress and misery. An example of a character that suffers from this violence is Crooks. He decides to torment Lennie by touching on the idea about George’s safety being in danger, however crooks intentions came from the discrimination and isolation he felt unlike some of the other workers, Crooks wasn't just passing by.
This time spent here helped to begin to develop the creature’s mind, proving he was in fact rather intelligent. The monster knew that he was different from these people, often describing them all as beautiful. He knew they would not accept him, and yet his search for belonging and family continue to surge the novel forward. While the creature is lonely and hurting, his actions slowly become malicious. These outward acts of rage seem to be motivated by his anger towards Victor, for exiling and hating him.
Strangely enough, Atticus was also able to see the good in Mayella Ewell, and it tore him apart having to destroy her testimony on the stand. In chapter eighteen Scout says, “Atticus hit her hard in a way that was not clear to me, but it gave him no pleasure to do so. He sat with his head down..”(Lee 252). When Atticus had to defend Tom he also had to show the jury that Mayella was speaking lies which made him upset to do so. He knew Mayella was a victim in the situation too and did not want to hurt her more than Bob Ewell already did.
