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.
“mockingbirds don't do one thing but make music for us to enjoy” (Lee 93). One of the examples of good vs evil in this story is Tom Robinson’s court case with Mayella Ewell. Tom Robinson is a black man named who is accused for a crime of raping and beating Mayella Ewell even though he just helped her with household chores. In the book Tom was seen as a bad figure for most of the book even though he was just a caring, harmless person. You can say many mockingbirds die in today’s reality, but it is the innocent that suffer the most often.
"’Cause I’m black…"(Steinbeck ch.4). This is the only time that we see crooks discussing how everyone on the ranch degrades him and discriminates him. Crooks is so oppressed by the society that he lives in, that he starts to opress himself and he seems to be depressed. Crooks never talks back to any of the ranch workers when they call him racial slurs to his face. Crooks either has a strong will to keep working here, or, he knows that he has no other choice than to go out alone and starve.
Snape at many occasions has demonstrated his choice to truly belong to the good side still however he will never be qualified as a hero. He is difficult and unpleasant, and has no qualms to subject his students to this attitude. Snape was once a Death Eater and therefore implying his loyalty towards Lord Voldemort (Goblet of Fire). We know very little about the early life of Snape making it easy to believe that Voldemort and his ideologies were something Snape greatly admired, (“Snape knew more curses when he arrived to school then half of the kids in seventh year”, according to Sirius Black). Snape had also invented a curse , Sectumsempra (Half Blood Prince), which is rare for a student.
The last character to be evaluated in Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales is the Parson. When closely exanimating his character, no flaw can be found. He provides great insight on the coexistence of men with good and bad nature in such a time period. Unlike the Friar and the Pardoner, the Parson has no care for money or glory; nor does he ever have immoral relations with women or deceitful actions. There is nothing in his heart but love for God and others.
Easy does not trust many people because they have let him down so many times for an example Easy close friend was trying to set him up behind his back and from that day on Easy never trusted anyone again because he felt even those close to you will still stab you in your back Easy was trying to help a friend out to help find his son but Easy got pulled over by the cops that’s when Easy felt that his friend was trying to get him put in jail because he knew Easy was not supposed to be diving at the time. I can relate to Easy having trust issues because I’ve been let down in the past I’ve also had those I called my friends who in the long run has shown me there are not many people that you can truly call your
It is crystal clear that the loneliest character in Of Mice and Men is Crooks. He was rejected to play cards, and to enter the bunkhouse, just because he is colored. He also has an unwelcoming personality that repels people from getting close to him. John Steinbeck clearly expresses loneliness primarily through Crooks than the other characters who are also considered lonely. “People think being alone makes you lonely, but I don’t think that’s true.
Arthur Radley (Boo) from Harper Lee’s To Kill a Mockingbird is a young man, living in Maycomb, Alabama, who is portrayed much differently to what he really is. Arthur is very reclusive, and has minimal interactions with others in his community. Boo Radley is also misunderstood, being unable to show who he really is in the community. He is also a very mysterious character in the book whose character is portrayed differently as people know Arthur as someone in their community that is dangerous and occasionally violent. First of all, being very reclusive could be a trait related to Arthur Radley.
Trash of Maycomb County, is what the Ewell family was considered primarily because their property looked like trash, and they looked like trash as well. The quote, “He thought he’d be a hero, but all he got for his pain was… okay, we’ll convict this Negro, but get back to your dump (Doc E), shows that even though Mayella was able to lock up an innocent black man convicted, her family was still considered the lowest in class of the town. Mayella is socially secluded to the point that she has never been addressed with respect. She wants to change her situation, nut she is powerless to do so. She is a prisoner of her class and lacks the power to leave her
Further tales involve him being in a gang, having powers, and being dead and haunting everyone. Scout told, “The Radleys...kept to themselves…[t]hey did not go church...had no screen doors…[and] when the younger Radley boy [Boo] was in his teens…[he] formed the nearest thing to a gang ever seen in Maycomb…”(Lee 11-13). This quote exhibits how the rumors spread not knowing if true or false by the town. It enhances the reason why he is an outsider, because the community basically disowned him and his family. He is also living proof how hurtful that rumors could be that he would rather stay inside and not want to go outside and be apart of the
