It is estimated that 6 million Jews died during the Holocaust. Elie Wiesel somehow managed to beat those odds. Sadly there was no one there to save Elie, the protagonist of Night, from the misery and distress that he would experience as he went through the Holocaust. He survived harsh beatings, sickness, hunger, thirst, dysentery, and all the other forms of death that plagued his environment. All this would not come without a toll on who Elie was as a character, causing him to undergo a dynamic change. Dynamic changes such as his view on family, religion, freedom, and his identity all make Elie Wiesel a dynamic character.

Describe the personalities of the three main characters Ulysses Everett McGill, Pete Hog wallop and Delmar O’ Donell. (3 point)
A name, in theory, is a word or phrase that helps you recall a person or thing. In practice, a name also helps one recall the person’s or thing’s reputation. In Arthur Miller’s The Crucible, the characters’ decisions emphasize this quality. Not only does the name include the reputation and legacy of the people they identify, the characters’ choices and behaviors in The Crucible are motivated by the preservation of their dignity and the reputation associated with their names. By assessing the choices made, the inner personality traits of each character can be seen.
Joesph Strorm is a loyal brute, an extremist. He is an unwavering leader to Waknuk and the Repentances. He would sacrifice anything for his religion. Joseph is the kind of character that will do what he believes in with asking anyone one else. He is very cantankerous and hard to deal with and is a huge threat to David. Firstly, Joseph can be very dangerous because he will punish anyone, no matter who, especially those who go against the repentances, including his only son David. Furthermore, Joseph does many things to sustain the well being of his religion but he consistently goes overboard and makes decisions based on his gut without asking for anyone else’s opinion. Additionally, Joseph Strorm is an unquestionably complicated character and gets into many arguments based on his beliefs. “‘any government that could pass creatures like that is corrupt and immortal,’ my father announced. ‘possibly,’ admitted the inspector, ‘but it’s still the government’” (Wyndham 36). Ultimately, Joseph Strorm is demanding, devoted and can be ill-tempered on many levels. He makes everything
Arthur Miller developed several great characters in his novel THE CRUCIBLE. Connection to 21st century, time period, other archetypes. Reverend Hale, an example of the hero and traveler archetype, which is demonstrated by a connection to the 21st century, how the time period affected the story, and further illustrated by a comparison to other characters in other novels, movies, and other types of media. Hale is the only member of the court who questions the court's decisions. Of which he is striving for justice. Once he realizes that Abigail is a fraud, Hale devotes himself to attempt to persuade the other prisoners to confess so that they may avoid execution.
The character from the story Charles named Laurie ( protagonist ) seems like a sweet boy and a stereotypical boy who go to kindergarten and sing along to nursery rhymes , but due to kids today and the way things media gives them and the way they entertain has a big impact on the younger children to grow up faster .when the story starts to describe him things take a turn. He portrays many awful traits such as barbaric , secretive and self absorbed.
One of the biggest shocks people hear when it comes to the Crucible is that those characters were real, which makes the weight of their deaths that much heavier. A total of 20 people died in the Salem Witch Trials: 19 of them were hanged, and one was tortured to death by pressing; that person was Giles Corey. Not much is said about Giles Corey in the play, but it is said that actions speak louder than words, and that is true for him. When he refused to utter the names of others that might’ve been involved with witchcraft, he set himself up to be tortured to death and yet never said anything other than “more weight” (Miller, 207). Although he is a minor character, Giles Corey plays the role of an anti-hero, who not only displays probably the biggest act of bravery in the whole play, but also demonstrates the fact that although the judges were “learned and all-powerful”, a high education and obsession for power cannot silence the tenacity displayed by such a truthful character.
Good morning distinguished guests, ladies and gentlemen. I welcome you to the 24th annual Queensland Literary Symposium
It is hard to settle on the choice if Father Flynn is pure or liable. In John Patrick Shanley's Doubt; a story, he overshadows reality extremely well. The scenes about the toy, the outdoors trip and the undershirt cause much disarray; bringing about the gathering of people to do a reversal and forward in their psyches and uncertainty Father Flynn. Law says that individuals are honest until demonstrated blameworthy albeit; practically, everybody realizes that individuals are liable until demonstrated guiltless. It is exceptionally conceivable that Father Fynn is just helping Donald, in light of the fact that he is less lucky than alternate understudies at his school; and it is likewise extremely conceivable that he is molesting so as to harm the tyke him. The choice is left to the group of onlookers as the jury.
