“He doesn’t really need her, but he said he felt right bad about the way things turned out.” (TKAM, pg. 333). However, Helen did not easily escape racism. One morning, Bob Ewell followed Helen closed behind her while she was on her way to work, murmuring foul words at her, for no reason other than that she was Tom’s wife and he was racist. Although he did not attack her, Helen was terrified of him.
This would suggest that Bob Ewell was willing to have Tom killed, not because he truly believed he had committed a crime, but rather so he could promote his own prejudiced narrative at the trial and restore to himself the power that the social structures of Maycomb had taken away. Because of this, many of the less prejudiced people in Maycomb, including Heck Tate and Atticus, felt that Bob Ewell had in essence, murdered Tom Robinson. Thus, when Bob is killed by Boo Radley out of defence for the Finch children, Tate insists that
Number 3 was very strongly convinced throughout the whole trial that the boy was guilty. Juror number 8 and number 3 didn’t have much in common. But the only things they had in common were negative things, they never could agree on the evidence that was being brought to them to help the case. “NO. 8: (to NO.
Not only is Young Goodman Brown betraying his own loved ones and beliefs but the ones he cares for are disregarding him right back. This plot is quite frankly like a train of dominos; one does bad, the same receives bad. Each example of betrayal helps move along and set up yet another example. Hawthorne gives his readers a harsh reality of betrayal in all types of relationships and the penalties that come with it. The message behind this story may be hard to discover but it needs to be widely
I’m not promoting the verbal, mental, and physical abuse of women by any means, but it’s tough to beat up on Proctor because everyone was treating their wives poorly at this point in time. Now, not everyone was having affairs with eighteen year olds then and he needs to be held accountable for that, but John Proctor definitely has a minor understanding of moral values. Nevertheless, Proctor did fall under the charm of Abigail Williams, which makes him lose the moral high ground he once held, thus taking away his status of the perfect
Atticus had proved that Tom was innocent by saying “We don’t know, but there is circumstantial evidence to indicate that Mayella Ewell was beaten savagely by someone who led almost exclusively with his left. . . Tom Robinson now sits before you, having taken the oath with the only good hand he possesses—his right hand.” (Lee 208). This quote shows that the jury should of acquitted Tom because Atticus gave enough evidence to prove his innocent.
Jenny Fields feels the shame of being labeled as a sexual suspect, and replaces her shame with the pride of conceiving Garp by unconventional means. Garp reasserts his pride, and replaces his shame from Bonkers biting him, and covering his ear by biting Bonkers back. The two men who cover up their shame from sexually assaulting Ellen James resort to violence and cut off her tongue to reassert their pride. Kenny Truckenmiller Gains his pride back by murdering Jenny Fields who led the women’s movement, and who he blamed for his wife’s self education to hide his shame of his realization of his abuse to his family. Ellen James and Garp shame the Ellen Jamesians who Pooh Percy as an Ellen Jamesian reconnects with her pride by murdering Garp.
man. This conflict is an external problem. The main issue is that Chillingworth tortures Dimmesdale because he suspects that Dimmesdale was the one that committed the sin along side of Hester. When the people think that Dimmesdale is sick it’s because he is just so righteous but it’s mainly because of the fact that his secret is being tortured and pulled out of him, by Roger Chillingworth. Also another problem of man vs. Man is Pearl and Hester.
And the jury being white means he has no chance at winning, it’s truly sad, but during the time of the trial that 's just how society works. But, nevertheless this is how the times are and a black person never really has a chance in the court system, because they weren’t treated the same as white people. Another time that it is very clear that people don’t treat Tom the same as white people is when people refer to him as a “nigger.” The first example of this is at the Finch landing on Christmas when Scout and Cousin Francis get into a fight after Francis says something to Scout about Atticus, “He’s nothin’ but a nigger-lover” (Lee 83). This quote very clearly shows that people treat Tom differently when Cousin Francis says
Skin color should have nothing to do with the jury’s decision or Mayellas decision. Mayella is embarrassed by the fact of being beaten by her father. Everyone in Maycomb or in the court room Bob Ewell beat his daughter. They all know that Tom Robinson is an innocent man being blamed for something he had never committed. In To Kill A Mockingbird they make it a struggle for the jury to choose the right decision of who’s guilty and innocent, or the skin color in which they like or dislike.
3.When the duke and the king sell Jim, that shows how bad they are and how they have the ability to cruelly take advantage of every situation they are in. By betraying people, they have lived with in the process. This event advances Huck 's moral conflict even further. He has to decide to see Miss Watson, or complete help Jim to safety. In addition, Huck makes the right decision to help Jim , which ultimately develops
They can take away my heart, but I know in my heart that I did not do these alleged acts" (Bohm & Haley, 2014, p.309). He plans to fight and overturn the verdicts. I do not think there is enough evidence to be able to overturn the verdicts. The evidence that was presented was the eight boy’s statements that were testified. One thing that would hold is the cover up that his piers were convicted of dealing with his crime and the juveniles testimonies if they all were similar to Sandusky’s ways to which the jury will be convinced.
Danforth will not accept this deposition, because he feels the deposition is an attack on the court. Some of the citizens signed a petition stating they never saw any signs that the arrested women had dealings with the devil, and Judge Danforth wasn’t happy. “... Mr. Cheever have warrants drawn for all of these arrests for examination” (Miller 1253). With this petition going around is showing that the court may be wrong, and it is showing weakness from the court. Judge Danforth will do anything to protect him and make sure no one questions the court.
The Misfit callously remarks to the grandmother that “crime doesn’t matter,” later elaborating that regardless of the morality behind what someone does, they’ll eventually “just be punished for it” (O’Connor 14). The Misfit’s belief in inevitable “punish[ment],” reveals his twisted view on life, a view that could only be created through undeserving pain. The final instance of the Misfit’s unjustified suffering becomes evident through the reason behind his name. In a final explanation to the grandmother, the Misfit states that he gave himself this strange title because he “can 't make what all [he] done wrong fit what all he] gone through in punishment” (O’Connor 15). The Misfit’s inability to explain his “punishment” reveals the thesis behind his murderous lifestyle, a lifestyle crafted from experiences past.
