Holden’s childish ways cause him to never mature and figure out who he is as a person. We see many signs of Holden insecurities throughout the book, like the fact that he contradicts himself. An example of this would be when Sally and Holden are in the taxi and he tells her he loves her, he then counties to say, “It was a lie, of course, but the thing is, I meant it when I said it” (Salinger 139). Someone who is confident would not lie and play with the emotions of someone else. Another example of Holden contradicting himself would have to be when he hired Sunny, a
By not telling the same lie and being comfortable with it, it shows that he is naive in the sense not figuring out that it’s morally wrong and Huck is going to a struggle to find what’s exactly is morally ‘right’. b. In Chapter 40 of Huckleberry Finn it states: “I knowed he was white in the inside, and I reckoned he’d say what he did say-so it was all right now(Twain 271). i. This is significant because it shows readers how Huck is still struggling with finding that a black person could be kind.

By now Arnold’s persuasion has failed, and that’s when he resorts to threatening Connie, threatening to break down the glass door, or burn down the house to force her to come
In the story Where are you going, where have you been Connie, her mother and sister all have competitive relationships. Her mother says “Stop gawking at yourself.Who are you? You think you are so pretty?” to Connie after seeing Connie look at her own face maybe because her mother 's “looks were gone and that was why she was after Connie”(Oates 1). Her mother is jealous of her daughter, and because of that their relationship is weak. This is shown by the author’s choice of tone and usage of rhetorical phrases emphasizing on the point that their relationship is not family like.
It’s because the world he lives in has affected him in such a way to be like this. In Kurt Vonnegut’s Harrison Bergeron, certain devices weigh down the main character in order to equalize him with the others. This short story is dystopian; an offshoot to Orwell’s utopian world. Winston too is weighed down by his own society; he is forced to be a lesser version of himself, all for Big Brother. They don’t do anything to physically change him, but if he is thought to break the rules or is simply too smart for his own good, off to the Ministry of Love.
Connie has a conflict with June, her sister. A repetitive notion made in the story, as June is used as a meter to compare Connie too; which naturally, no one would like: “June did this, June did that, she saved money and helped clean the house and cooked and Connie couldn 't do a thing, her mind was all filled with trashy daydreams” (308). Ellie 's character, even as quite as he remains, presents a conflict with Arnold. First when he over steps his boundary with Arnold and asked "You want me to pull out the phone?" (318), then being told by Arnold to "Shut your mouth and keep it shut" (318), only to ask about the phone again.
Allie and kids symbolize the “catching”.The cliff symbolizes adulthood .Holden believes that adults are all phonies (which is hypocritical of him because even Though Holden constantly talks about other people being phony he is himself often phony. At various times in the novel, he tells pointless lies, claims to like or agree with things he hates, goes out with girls he doesn 't like, all to try to feel less lonely and left out).In chapter 17 Holden says “Then, just to show you how crazy I am, when we were coming out of this big clinch, I told her I loved her and all. It was a lie, of course, but the thing is, I meant it when I said it. I 'm crazy. I swear to God I am”.
The Great Gatsby:Character Analysis 1.Daisy isn 't one of the nicest characters in the book, money is a big priority for her and she lets others take the fall for her. Gatsby sums her up very well in a few words by saying “her voice is full of money..” (Fitzgerald 120) and letting everyone know she is very materialistic. Daisy is very selfish she thinks Gatsby asks too much of her when all he wants is her love. She is also a bad mother and uses her daughter, Pammy as something to show off at parties rather than taking care of her she says things to Pammy like “how do you like mother 's friends” (Fitzgerald 117). Daisy Later shows how she loves attention and playing games with Tom and Gatsby by not picking who she wants to be with, at a party she said to Gatsby “that she loved him and Tom Buchanan saw” (Fitzgerald 119).
Violet shows off her intelligence numerous times throughout the book, to the point where Titus’s friends and even father think she is snotty and a show-off, even calling her a bitch. Titus thought Violet lacked the basic social intelligence that tells you to adapt to the world around you. But Violet refused to give into the feed and adapting, which led her to resist the feed. This decision she makes is making her unpopular, but it also makes her a rebel, in a way making her a role model for being above the influence. She 's grown up in a whole other world due to the way she was raised by her father.
‘She only married you because I was poor and she was tired of waiting for me. It was a terrible mistake, but in her heart she never loved anyone except me!’” (Fitzgerald 130). Gatsby continues to use words that convey possession. He expresses that Daisy “never loved” her husband Tom as if Gatsby knows this for certain. Gatsby never asks Daisy how she feels about this; he feels compelled to speak on her behalf because he is just so certain of her feelings towards him.

Because he don not want any one know about he said the lie, and he want to teach his children be a good person in the world Although "The Crucible" is a powerful drama, it stands second to "Death of a Salesman" as a work of art. Mr. Miller had had more trouble with this one, perhaps because he is too conscious of its implications. The literary style is cruder. The early motivation is muffled in the uproar of the opening scene, and the theme does not develop with the simple eloquence of "Death of a Salesman." ---------By BROOKS
