She didn 't want to live with the guilt of forgetting her mother 's death. The fact she had flowers in the back of her car and drove straight and fast are perfect examples of why Alaska’s death was a suicide. Alaska’s death was indeed a suicide. Her depression was very prevalent throughout the whole book. The scene of the accident is another reason why Alaska’s death was a suicide.
One example is the reason George and Lennie had to leave Weed. Lennie did not know that it was not okay for him to touch other women’s dresses. Which then frightened the woman and she screamed which frightened Lennie and his only reaction was to hold on tight. Since the normal human sometimes does not recognize when another is a little “slow”, the woman jumped to the conclusion that Lennie was trying to hurt her. Another example of George and Lennie’s friendship is when George has to shoot Lennie, because he had accidentally murdered Curley’s wife.
Both characters proves themselves as an unsought responsibility. The Grandmother doesn’t want to go to Florida and tries to convince Bailey Blue to go to Tennessee. Her suggestion goes unheard as usual and John Wesley puts his two cents on why she should stay home. "She wouldn 't stay at home for a million bucks," June Star said. "Afraid she 'd miss something.
We can’t let ‘im get away. Why the poor [man’d] starve to death.”’(Steinbeck 94) When Lennie flees the scene after he strangles Curley’s wife, some of the other men see her dead. Curley does not care that his wife is dead, he just wants to brutally kill Lennie now. “I’m gonna get him. I’m going for my shotgun.
Effie may come out to be the good girl here but she can leave Sam alone to do whatever he wants. If he loved Iva, she shouldn’t have intervene and make a big deal about him kissing the widow. Additionally, Iva kissed Sam, asked him to come over the day after Miles was dead, stalked him, called the police and attempted to frame him for the murder when she noticed that Sam didn’t want her. Brigid O’Shaughnessy is the biggest manipulative, selfish, and emotionally-driven prostitute. She made Sam believe that she was innocent and that she was in danger, she doesn’t want to go to jail for the murder of Miles, and she asked Sam if she can buy him with her
This sort of objectification truly sets the tone for her character arc. While nothing is inherently wrong with Fitzgerald’s choice to depict her as a sensuous women, the problem stems from his tendency to only characterize her as so. Stereotyping is harmful to the female identity and how women are perceived in society, which is why The Great Gatsby is a prime example of sexism amongst classic literature. Daisy and Gatsby later kill Myrtle after accidentally running her over with their car. Even though she has family, a sister who was mentioned earlier in the book, Fitzgerald chose to focus on her husband’s discovery that “Myrtle had some sort of life apart from him in another world and the shock had made him physically sick” (Fitzgerald 132).
She was the one who began the entire witchcraft because she wanted Elizabeth killed and John Proctor all to herself. She had affairs with John Proctor and loved him, but unfortunately for her he did not feel the same about her and we can see this through their conversation “Abigail: Give me a word John…. Abigail, in tears: I look for John Proctor that took me from my sleep and put knowledge in my heart….” (22). Abigail Williams is very manipulative and because of this many innocent people were calumny and sentenced to death. It is very clear that Abigail is very vindictive as we can see clearly that she took revenge on Elizabeth for firing her.
Woman Macbeth, on getting the letter, supports murder as she sees this is perhaps the main chance to accomplish their desire. Macbeth permits his wife to control him by blaming him for not being a "man" and communicates that she would slaughter her own child to have their craving satisfied. "I have given suck, and know How delicate 'tis to cherish the darling that drains me: I would, while it was grinning in my face, Have pluck 'd my areola from his boneless gums, and dash 'd the brains out, had I so sworn as you Have done to this". Yet Macbeth, being solid rationally and physically, does not put a stop to the homicide arrangement while his heart cautions him of the destruction staggering in the region. Rather than listening to his still, small voice, he stifles his blame and proceeds with his desire.
Lennie seems frightened of the woman, though he is not the victim. The instinct to immediately put his hand over the mouth of the wife is an example of how terrifying human are. The surges of panic Curley’s wife feels conveys that Lennie is the true villain in the book, not the protagonist. After Lennie kills Curley’s wife, she lays, “with a half-covering of yellow hay. And the meanness and the plannings and the discontent and the ache for attention were all gone from her face.
When we got on the plane we wished it was our last flight until we got to Orlando Florida, but it wasn’t, we was ready to go have fun, but we had two more flights to take before we get to our destination. After we went through those two flights we finally made it to Orlando Florida. We went to go get a rental car to drive around and go to the Disney parks and to have fun. When we went to the front desk mom talked to a person to check in and to get our key to the Disney village house that they gave us Instead of hotels rooms. When we made it to the house, we walked in and it felt like we walked into paradise.
As a result of her crying, Paul questions, "Why doesn 't she stop worrying? Kemmerich will stay dead whether she knows about it or not. When a man has seen so many dead he cannot understand any longer why there should be so much anguish over a single individual" (181). Knowing the unlikely chance of staying alive in war, Paul, unlike Kemmerich 's mom, knows how easy being killed is. Although her reaction appears over-the-top, she probably believes that she is acting
In the story “A Good Man is Hard to Find” there are many examples of foreshadowing. One example of this literary tool is shown at the beginning of the story when the Grandmother reads about the Misfit escaping prison in that day 's newspaper. Another example is the way the Grandmother dresses to leave for her trip. She dresses in a way that she would find acceptable to be found dead in, foreshadowing the ending when she is murdered by the Misfit. “In case of an accident, anyone seeing her dead on the highway would know at once that she was a lady.” (O’Connor) Another way O 'Connor foreshadows the end for this family when the family are driving they pass an old family burial ground with five or six graves the exact amount of people in the
Atticus and Mr. Tate knew that Boo would be killed if the town found out that he had killed Bob Ewell, and so they agreed that Mr. Ewell fell on his knife. When Atticus asked Scout if she understood the situation, she said “...Mr. Tate was right... it’d be sort of like shootin’ a mockingbird, wouldn’t it?” (Lee, p. 276). Scout plainly said that Boo Radley is a mockingbird and the events in the story prove it to be true. To kill a mockingbird is to kill one’s innocence and although there were other “mockingbirds” in the book, Jem Finch and Boo Radley were definitely important ones. Their innocence was killed by the evil in the world around them and that’s what makes them mockingbirds.
When Mrs Peters spoke about Minnie being worried about her preserves Henderson interjected with “Held for murder, and worrying about her preserves!” showing he does not understand or care about what Minnie thinks. Mr Henderson is just there to find evidence to charge Minnie Wright with the murder of her husband. We know this from reading “I guess before we 're through with her, she may have something more serious than preserves to worry about”. Mr Hale is not as rude to women as Henderson, although he can’t help the occasional comment. One comment that stood out to me was “women are used to worrying over trifles.” The words trifles means something of little value or importance, by Mr Hale stating women are used to worrying over unimportant items, it shows he doesn’t truly care about women’s thoughts.
