This shows that John is a merciful being and desires forgiveness from his wife and God, therefore demonstrating traits of a good man. Furthermore, John has a heated argument with his wife, due to his encounter with Abigail, alone. Although, he thinks his wife will doubt him, she states on the contrary, “I do not judge you. The magistrate sits in your heart that judges you. I never thought you but a good man, John - only somewhat bewildered” (55).
Is John Proctor the man who has it all figured out? No John may seem like he is the man that is figured out, but when dug deeper that is not the case. Proctor in the book The Crucible plays the tragic hero, an honest, upright, and blunt speaker, he is a good man, but has a secret. Proctor shows him finding self-discoveries about himself, like how much he loves his wife, self-respect, and peace with himself. John Proctor loves his wife, this we already know but Proctor learned how much he loved her and what he was willing to do as mentioned in the play.
From when they first met, Jim trusted Huck with his life. Being the runaway slave that he was, Jim had to trust that Huck wouldn’t turn him in. There were many times in the book where Huck could’ve turned Jim in but decided not to. This creates a deeper understanding of the story as it shows just how loyal Huck really was. It also gives us an understanding of why he is also very loyal to his good friend Tom.
After reading the novel The Lord of the Flies, I believe that I would be the most like the character Simon. Throughout the book, Simon is very caring for the other characters.Simon also seems to be the logical person of the group, besides Piggy. On the other hand, the character that I think that I would never be would be Roger. From the beginning Roger comes off as a fighter and not a lover. Towards the end Roger displays character that is even worse than Jack.
For Example, one of Gene’s weaknesses is that he is constantly thinking everyone is out to get him, so he does things that he will later regret, “I took a step toward him, and then my knees bent and I jounced the limb” (60). This quote shows that Gene will do things because of jealousy, frustration, or regret. This also shows Gene’s weakness because before this Finny told Gene that he should study instead of go to the tree yet Gene decided to go to the tree and kept in mind that Finny was out to get him. Another example of Gene’s weaknesses is that he never says what he wants to say, so when Finny asked Gene if he would go with Finny to the beach for the night, Gene wanted to say no so bad and yet he says, “‘All right’, I said” (46). This shows that Gene’s subconscious will take over and say things that he thinks that other people will want to hear.
“But you ain’t gonn get in no trouble, because if you do, I won’t let you tend the rabbits.” 2. Ch 1: George complains about having to take care of Lennie, though continues to travel with him.

A good friend is someone who is concerned for your welfare, who includes you in their life, and will be there for you in whatever situation. By these standards, I believe that George has been a good friend to Lennie in the novella Of Mice and Men by Steinbeck. We see that on numerous occasions George does all these things for Lennie. A bad friend would not care about Lennie enough to go through all George does for Lennie. Bad friends don’t care about what happens to you and George cares about what happens to Lennie.
The book tells about a young boy who tricks surrounding people into thinking that there was wolf, that the boy needed protecting. Every time that the young boy had done this he slowly but surely lost the trust of the people surrounding him. This has put boys into the position that they lie, that they are cunning and mischievous, when a boy lies bad things would happen to those who
Ableism is a dynamic represented in Steinbeck’s novel, Of Mice and Men. Lennie a character in the book, is characterized by his mental limitations. Steinbeck writes, “ ‘Jus’ tell Lennie what to do an’ he’ll do it don't take no figuring. He can’t think of nothing to do himself, but he sure can take orders.’” This shows that Lennie has limited capacity to think for himself. An example of when Lennie faces marginalization is when Ala Costa Centers’ mission is to, “empower school-aged children with developmental disabilities to find, use and express their unique strengths and talents.” One way Ala Costa Centers would help Lennie today might be through teaching him how to be gentle without over powering.
