At the first part of the story, there are some conflicts between Ponyboy and Darry. Though Ponyboy’s narration he though his brother is strict and stiff, sometime he even believe Darry doesn’t love him at all. When Ponyboy wen home late, Darry was very worried about him. As a family leader and a austere person, he was mad at Ponyboy. After Darry yells at Soda, who was try to stick up for Ponyboy, Ponyboy explored.
Ponyboy is set apart from the rest of the greasers because he likes to watch movies and books he describes his brothers as “never cracks a book” and “ works to hard to be interested in a story” he also states he isn 't like the other greasers because “ nobody in our gang digs movies and books the way I do”
During the course of the novel, Ponyboy becomes enlightened on how he views the world. In the beginning of the novel, Ponyboy has a dark view of his oldest brother Darry. He feels Darry doesn’t care for him the same way as Soda does(Soda is Ponyboys other older brother). Prior to this quote Cherry Valence, a character in the book was asking Ponyboy about his family.
Say-I’ll give you the core of my apple.’ ‘Well, here-No, ben, now don’t. I’m afeard-’ ‘I’ll give you all of it!’ Tom gave up the brush with reluctance in his face, but alacrity in his heart.” (Twain 19)
These and many other reasons are why Holden Caulfield is a dynamic character in The Catcher in The Rye. Early in the book, it is evident that Holden is very indifferent when it comes to academics. He wrote in a letter to Mr. Spencer, “It is alright with me if you flunk me though as I am flunking everything else except English anyway,” which shows his obvious lack of interest into succeeding academically. Holden also tells the reader that he has been to many different schools because of his academic
Another challenge is trust. It is clear that Piggy may not trust Ralph anymore after he called him a name. The readers know this because Piggy starts to clean his glasses and shows that he is quite upset and embarrassed. Besides there being challenges in a friendship, there are many rules. In Piggy and Ralph’s relationship, they try to help their friend when they need it.
Although Holden gets along with children, he has trouble fitting in with society. He often shows many dissatisfactions with the people he knows and points out their flaws. He is skeptical of adults because they are not “innocent” anymore. Since Allie’s death, Holden went through a great deal, such as his older brother D.B. leaving to Hollywood to become a writer for movies (which Holden detested) and abandoning Holden, among other things. Holden bears an emotional attachment to Allie which causes him to think differently and see the world differently; Holden is very lonely and becomes sick as a
Sometimes, though, Ponyboy is too reckless, and it pushes Darry over the edge. Darry becomes too critical, and it lowers his self-esteem. For example, when Darry scolds Ponyboy for coming inside too late, “I felt hot tears of anger and frustration rising. ‘I said I didn’t mean to!’” (Hinton, 50), Ponyboy feels as though Darry doesn’t love him, and that Darry criticizes him more than he deserves.
He does not recognize the leadership of Peter or Susan. He considers Peter as a rival and is often in conflict with him. He is struggling with Susan, who has appropriated herself the role of mother, Edmund regularly argues with his older siblings since he does not take into consideration their opinion. The only person he ranks himself above is
Sodapop never winds up in these arguments, however he attempts to defuse the dispute. On page 175, Sodapop says “it’s like I’m the middleman in a tug o’ war and I’m being split in half.” Soda feels as if he is being tear apart since he does not want to take sides, a major element of peacekeeping. In spite of the burdensome of listening to his brothers quarrel, he constantly tries to settle the disagreement. Sodapop continues to state, ““Golly, you two, it’s bad enough having to listen to it, but when you start trying to get me to take sides…” Tears welled up in his eyes.
I read “Middle school: Mmy Bbrother is a Bbig Ffat Lliar” by James Patterson. The book mainly talks about what the title explains. On how having a brother that continuously lies on you and one who is consantly annoying you in any and everything you do. You would think since he’s older he would act more mature than what he does,but he doesn’t. At times it does show where they aren’t trying to cut each others heads off but them actually getting along, which is barely ever.
The boys refuse to listen to him because he is an outsider and attempts to impose his parent-like nature upon them, which they dislike because they have finally escaped the power adults had over them. He is at the stem of the other’s road to savagery, and once he dies the island turns to complete chaos with no hope of turning back. Piggy represents the authority and morals the boys had left behind when they crashed, and the boys hated him for it because he is a constant reminder of everything they’ve ever
Nick disapproves of his drastic actions to win back Daisy. An example of this is the quote, “He wanted nothing more than that she should go to Tom and say: ‘ I never loved you.’” This is obviously a drastic measure to take for Daisy and is unreasonable. However throughout the whole novel Nick stays with Gatsby and even facilitates him have Daisy cheat on Tom, and he remains Gatsby’s only true friend throughout
He even helps me with many things, like problems at school or just protecting me when something is going on. Yet, his childhood wasn 't all that great, as he struggled. Back then, before I was born and dad was a child, he was an introvert, and that was the biggest mistake of his life, as he did not go outside. Like I said, he was like me.
The next horrible act Lennie commits is caused by his fantasies of rabbits which lead to a fight between him and Curley that ends with Curley’s hand being completely crushed by Lennie’s out of control strength. Lennie cries “I didn’t wanta hurt him” (Steinbeck 64) and George says “Lennie was jus’ scairt... he didn’t know what to do” (Steinbeck 65). This proves that Lennie does not mean to harm people but due to his challenged mind and physical power it is
