Sodapop is a fun-loving, carefree high-school dropout, but he is understanding and shows love to both of his brothers by seeing both sides of an argument. Darry has an extremely serious personality and loves Ponyboy with tough love. All three show love in different ways, but they still do love. Love is shown throughout all of the book The Outsiders in various ways, even though there is lots of violence. Dally and Johnny had a very close bond.
For example, in “The Upper-Class Twit of the Year,” a comedic sketch featuring several upper-class men, the sketch portrays these elite men in exaggerated, silly, and mainly stupid ways that detracts from their social power. These “powerful" men can barely perform simple tasks, such as running in a straight line, and the humor comes from the fact that these elite groups have influence, but are quite stupid. However, by making fun of these classes, the audiences that directly belong to the same classes understand and can relate to what Monty Python is trying to get at, therefore they can understand and laugh at the jokes, whereas those who don’t belong to the same classes cannot relate, and therefore may not understand as well as those that are in the same social class. And, as mentioned before, liking a media text such as Monty Python’s Flying Circus or any of their texts can signify to someone immediately of your tastes, or cultural capital, and thus even your social
Now, the characters in Everybody Wants Some are great, even if they are ungodly obnoxious. Most of the characters are arrogant, hyperly sexual college boys. Under a different writer, these characters would come off as generic or boring, but Linklater is able to give each character enough development and screen time to make you see under their rough exterior. Glen Powell as the mustached smooth-talking virgin, Finnegan, is a personal favorite, as he spouts deep philosophical teachings to his group of obnoxious baseball teammates. Blake Jenner as Jake, pulls off the nice guy performance perfectly and his chemistry with Zoey Deutch’s Beverly works very nicely too.
Every time the comic begins his/her joke the person listening thinks, “Oh yeah, that happens all the time”. Another reason the audience finds observational comedy funny is because the audience is always left with the thought: “Why didn’t I think of that?” Both these factors combine to form an immediate bond between the performer and the audience. When listening to the performer, because of observational comedy, the audience realises that the performer is just like any other person. The performer goes through life much like the majority of the audience. This is the reason this genre of stand-up comedy is extremely popular.
Although Dill's tall tales and imagination get him into trouble with Scout and Jem--after all, no one likes a liar--he also puts this talent to good use. Scout and Jem look to Dill for inspiration for their various adventures and plays that help them pass the hours during the long summer days. One of Dill's greatest sources of inspiration is the Radley house. Dill's fascination with Boo Radley leads the trio into all sorts of trouble. Luckily, Dill is quick on his feet and is able to save himself and his friends from punishment.
(To Biff.) Coach’ll probably congratulate you on your initiative! BIFF : Oh, he keeps congratulating my initiative all the time, Pop. WILLY : That’s because he likes you. If somebody else took that ball there’d be an uproar.” (Page 19, Act I) Although, this influenced more Biff rather than his brother Happy.
Both the poems tell a story that will change Seamus's life and they also describe events or problems that happened in his childhood. Both poems also include vivid descriptions of his family and in particular vividly describe his father. The contrasts between the two poems is that "Mid term break" tells a very sad real life event where as "Digging" is an experience that only he experienced, whereas "Mid-Term Break" affected many other people. Comparing his work has helped me understand better other poems as
Tybalt, Friar Lawrence, Mercutio, and all of the minor characters are developed in a way that we know some things about them, but we never really get to hear their side of the story. The protagonists might just be the most interesting of all. Romeo is a teenage boy, with emotions and testosterone flying all over the place. He loves being with his friends, acting wild, and having crushes on girls. He is very handsome, and the even his enemy Lord Capulet thinks that he is a “well-governed youth.” If I were him, I would be happy with all of the things I have going.
Robin Williams, known to be a successful comedian but in this movie he was able to bring out the raw emotion of a human who experiences love and friendship. I loved the way his character developed throughout the movie. At first he was rather shy and timid but as the movie progresses he was able to bring the best in his character by making us believe that there are times where we have to take the leap of faith. The character of Mrs. Lowe was also remarkable because she was able to pull the emotion of a mother seeing her child suffer. She did wonderfull because I was sympathizing so hard with
In the book Of Mice and Men written by John Steinbeck, he writes about two men one named Lennie and one named George having a dream, but is ruined through the troubles of Lennie 's doings. This book was written in the 1930’s talking about migrant workers and how they survived through that era. In that era all migrant workers preferably work alone, but with George and Lennie they stick together because Lennie is a more challenged person so he doesn 't know his wrong doings which causes lots of trouble for George. On page 94, one of the most significant passages is written on having a dialogue between George and Candy about how they were unable to get the farm because Lennie had ruined their chances of getting it. Steinbeck creates a motif of loneliness through the different characters he writes about, ties in different strands of the story to make one storyline, and foreshadows events to come.
To start off, there are many instances of greasers stereotyping Socs, but here are just a few examples. First, when Ponyboy was looking through Sodapop’s yearbook he stumbled upon a picture of Bob and thought to himself, “What was he like? I knew he liked to pick fights, had the usual Soc belief that living on the West Side made you Mr. Super-Tuff, looked good in dark wine-colored sweaters, and was proud of his rings. But what about the Bob Sheldon that Cherry Valance knew?” (162). In this instance, Ponyboy realizes that he had stereotypes Bob as just a “typical” Soc, mean and tuff without realizing that he was a just a boy too, just like him,
It was much different than anything I have been too. The two main narrators made this circus Olay act, even more entertaining by being humorous. A great deal of times these two narrators made almost the whole crows grin and chuckle. For my family and me, we could not stop smirking or laughing the entire time. What else brought uniqueness to this performance is that they got people from the crowd involved in a couple instances.
Lennie cares about George. Lennie always wanted to be with George because, he needed a companion, but he may have trusted him a bit too much. “I turn to Lennie and say jump in and he jumps, couldn’t swim a stroke. He damn near drowned. "(Steinbeck, 40) Lennie is dumb, but listens to George because he trusts him and Lennie gets hurt and doesn’t get mad at George.
Holden is very much traumatised by the death of his younger brother, and this traumatic event has helped in making Caulfield the socially awkward person that he is during the recount. Similarly, Huck has flashbacks within his journey; however, there are much less flashbacks than there were in Catcher. When Huck decides to write the letter about how he now felt “clean for the first time” when discussing the way that he helped out and befriended Jim. Within this short flashback, Huck remembers all the good times that he had spent with Jim, and how they evolved from strangers to good friends. After spending so much time with Jim, Huck begins to
Everybody is happy in this story except for the winner. Most of the characters in the story have one opinion. They all seem to enjoy the lottery. Mrs. Hutchinson said “Get up there, Bill,” and other people laughed at the idea that he could draw the paper. The young boys were playing and having fun, knowing that they could be killed that day.
