He is careless because he is constantly reminding doodle how he is disabled. Doodle is unwilling to participate in brother’s cold-hearted attempts of pointing out his mortalities. When brother showed an made him touch his casket he knew the expectations of doodle. As stated (. .
I think Brother would live with the constant guilt of taking Doodle’s life. I also think he was responsible for Doodle’s actual death since he took no precautions to save him. So it seems as if Brother would have been living with guilt either way. How does the theme of innocence tie into this
After the accident he believes that “If I could not take care of Mrs. Dempster, nobody else should do it” (Davies, 180). Dunny feels at fault for the accident and betraying Mrs. Dempster by not telling her, who threw the snowball. All three works contain betrayal by their friends, such as Ralph telling the group Piggy’s nickname, or when Macduff did not attend scone. In Fifth Business, Dunny is betrayed by Percy with the snowball incident which is physical betrayal towards Mrs. Dempster. Ralph calling Piggy by the name and Macduff not attending scone are examples of emotional and verbal betrayal.
They could say that George could have rescued Lennie and ran away from the ranch like he did in weed. This is wrong because George couldn’t live a life of running and saving Lennie from all his mistakes. George wanted to settle down on his own ranch, but he couldn’t do that with Lennie messing up all the time. The opposing viewpoint could also say that Lennie was too good of a worker to be killed. But this is also incorrect because it doesn’t matter how good of a worker he is, if he keeps getting them kicked out of wherever they are.
I’m not saying his life was perfect, but in many peoples point of view, including myself it seems like he was privileged. Now obviously people see things differently. Maybe in his point of view he just feels the need to abandon everything and he didn’t like his life. In Chris Ingram Remove The Bus essay about Into The Wild he states “For him to sever contact with his family and loved ones and die of simple starvation is just terribly sad and selfish (Online Source).” I completely agree with Chris Ingram. I feel this way because it’s immoral to leave family behind and I think it is just plain stupid that he just went to the forest and lived by
For instance, in the film “October Sky,” Homer Hickam had a sequence of hardships he had to face, particularly between his father, John Hickam. The specific quote, “he has no idea what he wants to be. But I know what he is. He’s a menace… and a damn thief” (October Sky, John Hickam) displays his father’s resentment towards Homer’s passion in rocket building. John had explicitly called the rockets “fool things” and threw out all of Homer’s rocket building tools in the pouring rain, saying it’s “right where they belong.” The amount of discouragement and impertinence these actions hold is beyond imaginable.
For instance, when Doodle is a baby lying on the bed, Brother said, “It was bad enough having an invalid brother, but having one who possibly was not all there was unbearable, so I began to make plans to kill him by smothering him with a pillow” (345). Instead of feeling empathy for Doodle and his situation, Brother’s pride causes him to feel more sorry for himself because people would know he has a disabled brother. His pride takes him so far as wanting to kill Doodle, even though he is merely a baby and can’t do anything to wrong brother, just so that he would not have a brother who was not “all there.” In addition, after the narrator talks about when Brother made Doodle touch his own coffin, Brother narrates, “When Doodle was five years old, I was embarrassed of having a brother of that age who couldn’t walk, so I set out to teach him” (346). Brother may be doing a kind act by teaching Doodle to walk, but his intentions aren’t to help Doodle, but to help himself. His pride holds him back from appreciating Doodle for what he is.
However, he put his foot down and let the suitors know that their recklessness is bad behavior. He also stood up for his mother Penelope to prevent her from marrying a suitor. Even though Telemakhos grew up without his father (Odysseus), he stuck up for his dad in front of the suiters for ruining the house, although growing up, his father was not there to teach him how to be a
Hairston was evil and manipulative and wanted Henry to ruin Mr. Levine’s sculpture without a valid reason as to why he wanted the sculpture ruined. He never gave Henry an easy way out of the situation, there was always a punishment for Henry. Mr. Hairston gave punishments but also rewards. He was going to give Henry a stone monument for Henry’s brother’s grave since Henry’s family could not afford it, but only if Henry ruined the sculpture first. In the novel, Tunes For Bears to Dance To, Mr. Hairston used his strong power of manipulation to persuade Henry into ruining the village sculpture: ‘Don’t make a decision now Henry.
"If Uncle Atticus lets you run around with stray dogs, that's his own business, like Grandma says, so it ain't your fault. I guess it ain't your fault if Uncle Atticus is a nigger-lover besides, but I'm here to tell you it certainly does mortify the rest of the family-" "Francis, what the hell do you mean?" "Just what I said. Grandma says it's bad enough he lets you all run wild, but now he's turned out a nigger-lover we'll never be able to walk the streets of Maycomb agin. He's ruinin' the family, that's what he's doin'."
