Throughout the story, Nick is an innocent character. “He has never been confronted by gangsters before, nor has he been sent to warn a man that killers were out to get him” (Oliver). This phrase implies that Nick is innocent, and not used to violence that some of the other characters are used to. “Nick stood up. He had never had a towel in his mouth before” (Hemingway).
The biggest thing they will say is that no one really saw Father Flynn with Donald thus concluding they were along together. Sister Aloysius: “You help a private meeting with him at the rectory.” (Shanley 31) Since no one else saw them, there is no other witness to say what happened between the two of them. Though it can also be argued that since no one saw them, there is nothing to say that Father Flynn committed such an act with a child. The other big claim that could be made towards his guilt is that he left the school when Sister Aloysius stated that she called his old place of work. This could be stating that he ran because he was guilty, but if he was then chances are the bishop would have believed her and he wouldn’t have gotten a promotion.
First, in “ Aria” By Richard Rodriguez the reader can see that throughout the story he never goes outside to talk to any of his neighbors, nor does he say he ever plans to. Richard believes that due to him not being white or as he calls it a “Gringo”, then he will never be able to spend some recreational time with them. Furthermore, we also see that Richard is one of the few fortunate ones that got to live around this area instead of the mexican side of town this implies that since he and his family do not belong there, therefore they would not be accepted by his neighborhood. His family is even shown to understand this when Richard states “My mother and father were more annoyed than intimidated by those two or three neighbors who initially
Shaun, who is a male, is a perfect representation of the average young boy; consistently not showing much emotion, and ultimately bottles everything up and handles it himself. When Shaun’s father had passed away at the end of this story, Shaun acted impeccably to society’s standards; he did not cry, nor show any emotion whatsoever. The narrator illustrates how upset, or rather how calm, Shaun is after his father’s death, “I never saw Shaun cry, or buckle at the knees, or do any of the things I would have done. Drama-wise, it was the chance of a lifetime, but he wasn’t having any of it” (Sedaris, n.d.). Instead of talking through and dealing with the grief of losing his father, Shaun closed off and acted as though he was not touched by these emotions or the events that took place.
Bodie never really looked into any jobs other than his job in the gang. He was loyal and didn’t think about leaving. Maybe he didn’t look into leaving because of the lack of access to other jobs. Maybe it was because being in the gang was an easy, risky, but easy, way for him to make some good money. Maybe it wasn’t about the money or lack of access to a better job and it was just about Bodie’s loyalty to the gang and Stringer Bell but whatever the reason, Bodie just never looked into other job
Furthermore, an outsider is a character that is set apart from the established cultural pattern. The most character that was an outsider was Franky, Bernice, and the soldier. Therefore, Franky didn’t feel like she wasn’t part of any club “we”. Bernice is part of the family, but again she’s not part of the family because if they ever move or go somewhere out of the town she can’t go. The soldier didn’t know anybody when he came back in town and he felt unnoticeable because nobody said anything to him at all.
“The old of the community did not ever leave their special place, the house of the old, where they were so well cared for and respected.” (Lowry 123) In modern day society The leaders of our society do not care about the problems that we have and the things that they don’t ever ask about our feelings on the problem. In Jonas’ society The leaders of their society do not know what to do about some problems and so they sometimes make the community all messed up. “Having no memories from which to find either solace or wisdom, they would not know what to do and would seek his advice.” (Lowry 161) and “They were prepared to shoot it down. But they sought my advice. I told them to wait.” (Lowry 112) In conclusion the difference in both societies is that one of them does not let a variety of things happen and the other let’s a variety of things happen, and the similarity is that both of the societies do not let the communities give their opinions on the matter at hand and do not let us share what we see happens without and with the
Mr. Flanagan works almost all day so he doesn’t go home that much and when he does go home, he spends the day with Natalie but doesn’t get a chance to hang out with Moose. The text explains, “ ‘She’s got one good boy, why not focus on him? But no, she goes on these wild-goose chases.’ ” “He's been gone forever and I hardly got to see him at all yesterday. ‘ I’ll bet you took Natalie out this morning didn't you?’ ‘ That isn’t fair,’ I say, though I know better.” In conclusion, Moose also doesn’t think it’s fair that only Natalie gets to have a day with their dad. Other people also realize that Natalie gets all the attention from Mr. Flanagan and Mrs. Flanagan and
Holden Caufield is not insane because he has never talked about being diagnosed with a mental illness. While Holden may show symptoms of many mental illnesses, it was never mentioned in the novel that Holden ever had a diagnosed mental illness. In the novel, Holden is the type of character to admit what he is thinking and be direct about what he is thinking. As the novel narrated by Holden Caulfield, he
Friends and enemies never made, stories that would never be able to be told, because they would have never happened. So this book needs courage, and I could end this essay here, but I think you deserve a bit more explanation. All throughout this book, courage exists. It never stops, it never stays, and it 's always going from one character to the next. For example, Scout stands in front of a mob, and just talks to them, to try to calm them down.
