The use of the metaphor helps the audience to understand his intense anger towards the Americans. To explain his and the feelings of affect people Mukay uses the language feature “[....] as sharp as steel” He is referring to himself as steel showing that he is strong and he will not easily be discouraged, Mukay want to prove that people being affected should stay strong. However, this will not be the situation with everybody as there are people who struggle a lot and get discouraged by segregation which will cause the, to fall apart. He also mentions “sharp” that shows his anger is very strong because he knows he is standing for the right purpose. This0 helps show the readers how individuals would feel when they are being separated from the society when they haven’t done anything wrong.
The presence of good and evil can plague the mind, as people must come to grips with the reality of freedom of choice. In “Young Goodman Brown” by Nathaniel Hawthorne, the main character and protagonist, Goodman Brown, goes through an experience where he realizes everyone must choose regularly between good and evil. Realizing that many people fail to follow a path of righteousness, Brown begins to question his own faith. Through a dream-like state, Goodman Brown is exposed to negative influences that challenge his Puritan beliefs and religious morals. Hawthorne uses specific language, metaphors, and vivid biblical allusions in the story that help demonstrate Brown’s struggle with accepting the fact that people he loved and trusted may have succumbed to evil.
He argues that the Super-Ego is responsible for the “discontents” that human beings experience in civilisation as “The super-ego often puts severe demands on the individual that he cannot realistically met, causing great unhappiness.” (Gradesaver, Civilisation and its Discontents). When he outlines the contrast between “savage” and “civilised” beings in the book, it is clear that he is arguing human beings are unhappy because they have to reach “expectations” of society. Skepticism of the demands of society to follow the “restrictions” to human pleasure becomes a concept of questioning the demand that society puts on individuals which can be a similar comparison to the description of the political party in the modernist novel 1984 written by George Orwell. The limits that Winston, the main character who is in doubt of the government that influences the party members of the governmental leader Big Brother, finds himself miserable and psychologically tortured because his own thoughts of freedom have been limited by “thought crime” which is a law passed by Big Brother that restricts minor party members to even think about defying the
Throughout the early chapters, the prevalence of a significant theme was ‘Individual alienation’. Not only has Holden’s alienation harmed and manipulated his perception of the world from phoniness, but caused the protagonist to restrict maturity. Throughout the novel, Holden seems
Throughout this novel we will be psychoanalyzing Holden’s abnormal behavior and grasp a deeper understanding behind his actions, thoughts and words through characterization, language, and attention to detail. With close attention to Holden’s behavior towards the beginning of the novel we can observe that he has a very dark outlook on life. Holden’s brother, Allie has passed away along with the passing of his friend, James Castle and this seems to be the primary reason for his perspective on the world and
Elie’s feelings change about his father countless times. He loves his father but he doesn’t really want him around anymore. This theme is not only important to the book, but it is important to life. Family will forever be complex, and navigating it can be harder, but Wiesel showed it was possible by illustrating to readers that there will always be good and bad times, it shows the internal conflict about whether he wants his father around or not, and it illustrates the dehumanization that broke the connection between Elie and his father. Most everyone loves their family, or they at least have someone, but at times, people need a break from them.
Similarly, Wilson in Fences was also conscious that such a mixture, where money and race are put together, is poisonous since it leads characters to destructive conflicts like the ones between the father Troy and his son Corry or also between black and white minorities. However, these conflicts are still of paramount importance because of the historical and human significance they give to the play. Starting from the
Huck is presented with many controversies throughout the story and situations that help him grow into the character he is. He is faced with a moral decisions along with life threatening decisions and how he develops throughout the story makes him the protagonist. He is viewed by others as the poor boy, the rich boy, the thief, the liar and a friend. As the story unravels, I have thought that Huck is a little punk, a poor boy with an abusive father, a friend and survivor. It seems as though his character traits change daily depending on who he is interacting with and what actions benefit him the most.
