Gatsby is the main character because the plot diagram centers more around Gatsby's actions. Nick is merely a supporting character who is there to aid Gatsby in his quest. Finally, the title itself is named after Gatsby, not Nick, indicating that Gatsby will be the main character in the
It’s just that he kept a giant secret from her that challenged moral integrities; and Jane is a very morally conscious person. Mr. Rochester had to know if he mentioned it earlier Jane would’ve run away and thought him a bad person, which she ended up doing after the wedding. You could argue that he wasn’t technically lying about Bertha, he just didn’t tell her. On the contrary to that, Jane does see Bertha, and thinks it’s Grace Poole, multiple time even. Mr. Rochester does nothing to correct her he even encourages her thoughts on the matter.

Vonnegut’s struggle to write an antiwar novel was actually a struggle to find a suitable perspective to represent an experience that goes beyond human comprehension. Vonnegut in Slaughterhouse-Five narrates and shaped his own life in the similar way he later narrates the life of his main character with reference to Tralfamadorian’s time theory that everything is laid before us to see at the same time. In first chapter, Vonnegut introduces us with his difficulties and struggles he had to remember what had happened and find the right words to illustrate what he had seen during the war. He mentions that he thought the book would be easy to write—all he would have to do is to simply report what he had seen. But this does not work.

Edward Rochester is a talented man; what he lacks in beauty he makes up for in other areas. Jane describes Rochester’s appearance as having “stern features and a heavy brow; his eyes and eyebrows looked ireful and thwarted” (Bronte 214).

After his bad first impression and ugliness, Rochester decides to treat Jane with the highest level of respect that she has seen in her entire life. After some light conversations, Rochester has found himself in love with Jane because of her mind.
1 INTRODUCTION This thesis analyzes John Grisham’s novel A Painted House, specifically, how the life of a boy in the 1950s rural South is portrayed. Grisham is mostly known for his legal thrillers, and this novel is important because of author’s deviation from his traditional topics concerning lawyers and legal situations (Pringle 2). The novel covers a few weeks of the end of summer and depicts the protagonist’s life and experiences during the time. It is also important to note that the novel is set around the time that the author was born; therefore, it describes the setting of the time as close as possible. John Grisham was born in 1955, in Jonesboro, Arkansas, and spent there his early years (Pringle 1-2, 65).
History 18 Book Review For my book review I have read, noted important evidence and events, evaluated and looked to learn and understand the viewpoints of two books. The first book written by Thomas Bruscino entitled A Nation Forged in War, published by The University of Tennessee Press. The second book I evaluated was, Freedom Rides by Derek Charles Catsam, published by The University Press of Kentucky. Thomas Bruscino’s purpose is easy to understand as well as Derek Catsam; one being about how veterans of World War II shaped the United States ethnic and religious relations and the other, about a Civil Rights movement that became a historical event that eventually led to desegregation, the book also examines who they were up against and the
His mind is in constant turmoil from his immorality, transforming him into a guilt-ridden tortured soul, because of his secret. Hawthorne expresses Dimmesdale 's morbidness when he says, “Yet Mr. Dimmesdale would perhaps have seen this individual’s character more perfectly, if a certain morbidness, to which sick hearts are liable, had not rendered him suspicious of all mankind. Trusting no man as his friend, he could not recognize his enemy when the latter actually appeared” (135). Dimmesdale is living with Chillingworth, his physician, who is described as evil and tormenting towards Dimmesdale, yet, the minister does not know that his enemy is the one he is trusting. Furthermore, Dimmesdale attributes, “all his presentments to no other cause but his own morbid heart” (146).
