Holden tends to hate confrontation, throughout the novel and always is about to do something but chooses in the end to not. Caulfield is his own antagonist he craves company but takes pride in his idea of people being too “phony” that he pushes everyone away, he takes his own happiness away and alienates himself from people who love and want to help him. When attending Pencey prep Caulfield spent his time hating everyone and did not socialize with others. He talks about how everyone when going to football games all hang out but he never mentions himself going to
Callarman’s argument is that Chris McCandless made a lot of mistakes because he was arrogant and that he had no business going into Alaska with his Romantic silliness and he says that he was just crazy. I disagree with Callarman’s argument because I think that Chris McCandless (Alexander Supertramp) was not arrogant I think that he just wanted to learn new things. I also disagree because I think that Chris did have a reason to go to Alaska or else he would not have done it even if it just to go because he likes nature, and I don’t think that he was crazy at the beginning but I agree that he did start to get crazy when he was stuck in the wild on the bus. I don’t think that Chris is arrogant I think that he is just a guy who wants to learn new things about nature and just the world in general. In the movie Chris McCandless had a thought in his head since he started that he wanted to go to Alaska and he could have gone long before he actually went because he had everything and then just donated his money to a charity called OXFAM and left his car and everything else to be hitchhiking and he went and he was living his life how he wanted like this quote that Chris McCandless/ Alexander
But no one ever listened to Simon, they made him an outcast, when really he could have helped them a lot.That is why they couldn’t think straight, they turned into monsters because they didn’t follow their “guides”. Otherwise, the story may have taken a better
If he did he would have been happy, however, it ended up leading to his downfall, even if it was not his fault. Daisy could not handle the dream that Gatsby tried to force upon her, and in the end, this made Daisy choose Tom. Gatsby’s green light was never something that he could reach, no matter how hard he struggled and fought. The people he wanted to include in his dream did not hold up to his high
Christopher McCandless was running from the expectation that his parents had for him and all the problems that his family had. He obviously did not want any part in it. Growing up in the upper middle class Christopher was given everything since day one. This to me is a major part of why I think McCandless had the right to venture off from his family, him wanting to learn from his mistakes never happened because he
Hughes was one of the few kids who really wanted to see Jesus, but ended up lying to not keep his aunt and other adults waiting. The worse thing the pressure brought to Hughes was his loss of faith. He no longer could believe in Jesus, and he lost that faith while making other people happy that he had been “saved.” Orwell doesn't buy what society believes about beggars. Beggars have to go through a lot on the streets, to still be detested by society. Society doesn't care what beggars have to go through, they only care about who has a lot of money.
Newbies aren’t allowed to see someone who’s been... taken.‘ Newt and Alby won 't allow it.’ ... He started up the stairs. Each step groaned and creaked under his weight…” Thomas was told that he was not allowed upstairs since he was a newbie but he didn’t listen or want to be near Gally so he decided to go up anyways. Thomas shows the traits of a rebel when he broke one of the Glade’s rules. Even though he’s new to the Glade and lost all of his memories, except for his name, he still chose to go against what the Gladers said to fill his
One of Holden’s biggest problems is not wanting to grow up and be an adult because he doesn’t like adults. Holden thinks all adults are phonies and doesn’t want to grow up like that, but he’s already being fake before he is an adult. When the reader discovers Holden says one thing but does the other the reader learns that Holden is an unreliable narrator because of his phoniness. Next the reader sees Holden’s authenticity appears to be more confusing because although he's reaching out to people he's still not being honest with himself.
Danny changes every time he is near his friends. Meanwhile, Romeo acts on his own instincts without thinking about the consequences that are going to happen, and in the end it does not end up well. In Grease their friends are keeping them away from each other. Then in Romeo and Juliet their families are the reason that they could not be together. In fact, even Mercutio and Danny’s friends have some resemblance.
In the novel Into The Wild by Jon Krakauer, many people thought that Chris McCandless was crazy for what he had done. Callarman's statement states that “McCandless was bright and ignorant” Long, C. (n.d.). I disagree with this quote. I believe that he did it because he didn't want to be bossed around, nor he didn't want to be his dad's puppet. He wanted to experience many new adventures outside of society.
“One has no right to refuse a gift or to refuse to attend the potlatch. To act in this way is to show that one is afraid to reciprocate. (41)” This quote resembles back to the clip because when Michael opens his gift he is clearly disappointed with what he had received by talking under his breath and leaving the room in a fast pace to avoid the person who gave it to him seeing that he was very disappointed about what he had received because it did not have any value to him. Reacting the way that he did caused the room to feel overall awkward and to judge Michael’s actions.
2. Q: Why Hamlet refuse to tell them where he hide Polonius’s body? A: Hamlet refuses to tell them where Polonius’s body because first of all, it will make them believe he is crazy. Only crazy people will do things like that, so he is acting to show others that he does lose his mind. He doesn’t mean to kill Polonius.
The second way Huck went against society’s rules was by refusing to be civilized. He would never listen to the Widow and Mrs. Watson when they attempted to make him act proper and work on his studies. He’d much rather run around in the woods and play robbers with his friends. Twain himself, who spent much of his life traveling around the United States, used Huck to show that life was meant to have fun and to not waste so much time putting on airs. Lastly, Huck didn’t put up with anyone telling him what to do, especially pap.
