“Everything the people need.” Not having to think for yourself gets you in the habit of just doing. Never stopping to ask yourself, ‘have I done this already?’ ‘Is this wrong?’ ‘What about right?’ No, we only do, or rather the people from the book only do. Finally, you start to see how unfeeling Mildred is. This happens when she tells Montag he isn’t sick, and shows no sympathy for him. She stated, “You’re not sick.” Then again, when talking about the death of Clarisse, she states, “She was simple-minded,” “That’s water under the bridge.” These quotes show how Mildred feels no type affection toward anyone.
Elatos was a lower middle class man who did not have much ethos. His strongest debate point was that of logos, because he argued that Euphiletus had no reasons to kill Eratosthenes for money. He stated, “once your wife has been corrupted, you lose the respect from your fellow citizens, and no amount of money will fix it.” While Elatos is just a lower middle class man, he does have a good point. The third debator in Group B, Marandus (Maranda) had great diction as well as poise. He was one of the few people in the debate to use strong ethos.
In “The Jungle” the stereotypical characters are the hardworking man (Jurgis) and the weak vulnerable women (Ona, his wife). The conventional character of the man being the provider for the family and the wife being “too weak” shows the concept of survival of the fittest and encouraging people to advocate towards socialism. To begin with, when jurgis first arrived at America he was not at all exposed to the harsh reality which caused him to be completely naive. Jurgis was very overprotective of his family especially Ona because she was slightly more sensitive. He was the main provider of the family so, he felt as if all of their well being fell on his shoulders.
Krebs thought girls were “not worth the trouble.” (85) Although he may not have had the motivation to pick up the girls, he “liked looking at them.” (85) This is in no way the girls’ fault, however it shows how the war affected Krebs’ drive to do tasks that involve socialization. Perhaps if the townspeople were more open to listen to Krebs’ story then he would be more comfortable with girls. His mother is an example of how he interacts with women. He is shown to be very uncomfortable, and ends up with his mother’s feelings hurt. This shows how because nobody talked to him, he couldn’t talk to anyone comfortably.
“Why is Pops so mean?” He does not see the benefits of working hard and being paced, but only the pressure and the burden his shoulders cannot carry. This relationship between Andre and his father is very much dominated by the authority his father possesses. The father is strict and consistent, especially when it comes to training. He does not share much about himself and his childhood and it is only when Andre’s grandmother begins to tell stories that the father reminisces and opens up. Andre Agassi’s father is very much like his own mother.
Article one of the “Universal Declaration of Human Rights”, which states “They are endowed with reason and conscience and should act towards one another in a spirit of brotherhood,” was violated. The people of Maycomb didn’t treat the Radleys with any respect and held them in disregard. At the conclusion, when Scout finally meets Boo, she understands that all the rumors about him aren’t
He was a Creole Catholic while Hester was a Presbyterian from Kentucky. Her husband was a member of upper-class so he had to have a good and elite posture in the society while Edna could not fulfil these expectations. For example, she refused to accept the people in her home on Tuesdays which is a nearly mandatory act in the society of Creole Catholics. A young woman sometimes want to be embraced but her husband was not jealous. Chopin says “But for the matter, the Creole husband is never jealous; with him the gangrene passion is one which has become dwarfed by disuse.” (29) This relationship is also defined in the book
At the stag party, Peter brings a pornographic movie called ‘Assablanca’, a parody of the famous Casablanca. The masterpiece is well known in France and thus did not need any adaptation: even though ‘ass’ does not mean anything in French, the wordplay can easily be identified considering its closeness to the name of the original movie. The next morning, Peter has a hangover illustrated by two accountants, one of which asks the other what is outside their working room. The other tells him to stick to his work but the French version has added a joke to the situation, having the second man answer ‘C’est mauvais de réfléchir, c’est pas pour ça qu’on a fait des études!’. These particular moments are useful in that they make up for lost jokes throughout the episode.
The main reason he came to New York is because he longed for its excitement, but eventually realized that it was not worth sacrificing his principles. “Even when the East excited me most, even when I was most keenly aware of its superiority to the bored, sprawling swollen towns beyond the Ohio, with their interminable inquisitions which spared only the children and the very old---even then it always for me had a quality of distortion” (176) Eventually, Nick found that East Egg had a surreal quality to it, and found it “distorted” due to this. He found the society of the rich too superficial and conceited, almost completely materialistic and twisted in a way. East Egg for Nick, distorted reality where the wealthy lived in a bubble where life was untangled to an indulgence of inclinations. Similarly, Nick is always swinging back and forth in his relationship with Jordan.
Morals are significant because without morals a person will not just pick up cultivated behavior from parents, they will pick up behaviors incorporated from themselves. An exemplification of this would be two people, where one person is less fortunate, parents have low-paying jobs ,and is struggling to take care of themselves. On the other hand, one person has everything, parents have money , and they want for nothing in the world. The working family child is a straight A student, plays sports, and has dreams to be a doctor. Whereas, the rich child plans to mooch off their parents, don’t go to college, and don’t get good grades in school.
The states represented freedom, and independence, yet there were millions of people being forced into a life of hard labor and no pay, slaves. Frederick Douglass was completely correct with the way he delivered his speech. He began his speech by questioning why he was chosen to give this speech. He mentions that he for one, is of a different color than the ones who were truly celebrating this occasion, “I am not included within the pale of this glorious anniversary” (Douglass). For him and his people this is not a day of celebration but a day of mourning.
