Brother leaving Doodle behind when he was screaming just shows that he wasn’t being nice enough to his brother. Leaving your brother behind is really mean. If he wouldn’t have left Doodle behind maybe the outcome would’ve been different. Brother wouldn’t have gone back and seen Doodle all bloody. Brother caused Doodle
On page “347” Doodles brother was ashamed of having a crippled brother. His brother also left him in the rain when doodle had tripped and fell. His druther didn 't turn around and help doodle. These are a couple of reasons why i think doodle died because of his brother. I also believe that doodle 's brother killed him because, on page “345” his brother had plans to smother doodle in his sleep.
Brother made Doodle do things that he thought he should be able to do but his physical condition did not allow him to. It caused a lot of stress to the both of them because they could not handle all that was going on with Brother and Doodle. This did not end well for either because the consequences outweighed the work going into it, such as Doodle collapsing. Doodle was pushed too hard that it became a problem and resulted in the issues proved to be too much for him. The death of Doodle was Brother’s fault because his actions were not those of a good brother or person.
George always tells him how he screwed up and that he should not do it again in the future. Lennie does not learn from his mistake. Steinbeck shows this because in the book Lennie keeps making mistakes throughout the book. Therefore, Lennie brings struggle upon himself because he does not change. Steinbeck was successful at making Lennie an unsympathetic person in many ways.
Elie wanted to give up on because of how bad his foot was hurting, but with his father by his side running through the thick snow with him made him not give up. His father was out of breath and running out of strength. Elie kept moving with him (Wiesel pg 82). Rabbi Eliahou 's son had left his father behind because he thought he was to weak to go on… Elie saw what he had did and lied to Rabbi Eliahou saying that he hasn’t seen his son. Elie said to himself that he wouldn’t do what Eliahou’s son did ( Wiesel pg 86-87).
‘Why?’ he asked. I hadn't expected such an answer. ‘So I won't have to haul you around all the time.’ ‘I can't walk, Brother,’ he said.”(2-3 Hurst) Doodle was taught since he could remember that he could not do certain things, and was unfit to play with his older brother. This type of treatment led to him doubting his capabilities, and if it was not for his brother who selfishly taught him to walk, he would have never been able to stand on his own feet. They feared that he was incapable of living a normal life, however they were the ones that were stopping him from reaching his full potential.
The “Scarlet Ibis” and Frankenstein Comparison Imagine working so hard to get what you want, only to realize your work was in vain. When wanting something so bad, people let emotions take over, not thinking about the big picture. In Hurst's “The Scarlet Ibis”, and Shelly’s Frankenstein, the main character leaves their work in a no-win situation. In James Hurst’s short story, “The Scarlet Ibis” the narrator teaches his brother to walk because of his selfish desires. When asked why he wants to teach his brother to walk he says he does not want to do more work.
Selfishness of a child is represented as a negativity in Brother’s life when he starts to cry after presenting a walking Doodle to his loved ones. “Doodle told them it was I who had taught him to walk, so everyone wanted to hug me, and I began to cry… They did not know that I did it for myself; that pride, whose slave I was, spoke to me louder than all of their voices; and that Doodle walked only because I was ashamed of having a crippled brother,” (347). At the time, Brother doesn’twant to be known as the boy with the crippled brother, so he does whatever he can to teach Doodle to walk. He cries due to the fact that his family’s glee is only present at the time due to him ashamed. His own desires have taken over his mind, and he acts upon them.
He “had grabbed his fall jacket” instead of his winter in the rush to get outside (177). His forgetfulness causes his death. If he had grabbed the proper coat he would have not gotten frost bite and felt the growing desire to sleep. The best quote to sum up the story would be “repeated thrashings … had convinced him that staring out the window … was not the way to escape the sterile monotony of school” (171). It shows how the school did not want the kids to stray from their school work, but also shows that Charlie had strayed and tried to dream about the outside world before and was punished.
This roots back to the death of his brother and his fear of getting close enough to someone that he is vulnerable to being hurt. Holden despises interaction so intensely that he even says “I thought what I’d do was, I’d pretend I was one of those deaf mutes. That way I wouldn’t have to have any of those goddam stupid useless conversations with anybody” (218). This illustrates just how far he was willing to go to avoid interaction, because he truly thinks that it is pointless. Throughout the novel the reader is exposed to Holden’s damaged mind and personality.

He got upset with them because keeping a fire burning was more important than hunting for pigs. This was more important to their survival because the smoke from the fire was a signal so they could be rescued. Ralph was mad how they hunters weren’t able to keep the fire going when the ship was near since that was an opportunity to get off the island. Ralph believed that if the fire was still burning, the ship would see them and rescue them. “Neither of the boys screamed but the grip of their arms tightened and their mouths grew peaked.” (98) Even though the twins didn’t scream, they were both still scared since they were alone at night.
