Not only did brother mislead Doodle, but he was untruthful to Doodle. Getting Doodle to walk is something Doodle should want and not brother. The time Doodle had walked his first steps brother cried too, but he cried because he was untruthful. It was something he wanted and not Doodle. This brings me to the last point.
The characters that S.E Hilton writes about are very well devolved for a short novel like this one, they are also memorable to the readers. Ponyboy Curtis is the main character and the narrator of the book, and he talks a lot about how he feels about various things throughout the novel. He isn 't like the stereotypical guy who bottles up their emotions to seem more like able by the ladies, and actually, a lot of women look for a guy like Ponyboy because he shares how he feels. Johnny Cade is a kid that gets beat up by his family but he is never really angry about it. He has a friendly but paranoid demeanor to his personality, and he is loved by his second 'family ', which is just Greasers.
Another example of Atticus showing sympathy towards people is a case with Bob Ewell. There was a scene when Bob Ewell made a barbaric attitude by spitting in Atticus’s face, yet Atticus didn’t mind it and just simply walked away. In this scene, Atticus demonstrated a lot strength of restraint and dignity by resisting to retribute for Bob’s action. “Caring people no matter how nasty they are” is the lesson, which he taught to his son. The “mockingbirds” in this book, are innocent people who have a pure heart.
In the story “The Scarlet Ibis” by James Hurst the narrator’s pride over comes his love for his brother, Doodle. Doodle is physically disabled and is not able to do mostly anything a normal person would be able to do. Although he is disabled he is still jovial but the narrator doesn't see that side of him. This makes Doodle not fit in with others and embarrasses the narrator, which is his brother. The narrator pushes Doodle towards difficult goals not only for Doodle’s good but also for himself and his selfish reasons.
The author’s tone in this quote is violent and bitter. Eric saying that he “hated almost everyone “, would support the reader’s thinking towards what kind of person Eric is, and what Eric is thinking. Eric’s use of language almost immediately gives the reader a hint of what he is capable of, not in the sense that he would literally “rip is head off and eat it” but in the sense that he is capable of doing bad things. Given the fact that people throughout the United States have already heard of the mass shooting in Columbine, the reader would promptly identify Eric as the killer and they would be right. The author’s purpose could be to keep the reader thinking: who is the killer?
Willie Jay is the antithesis of Dick: Willie Jay encouraged Perry to strive to his fullest potential (although Willie Jay did not think that was much, based on his condescending attitude towards his lack of education). Dick attempted this, he “ had always encouraged him, listened attentively to his talk of maps, tales of treasure, but now-- and it had not occurred to him before-- he wondered if all along Dick had only been pretending” (Capote 100). Perry noticed that Dick did not actually respect him. However, Perry honestly admired Willie Jay- he was the antithesis of Dick. Perry takes the both paths on the road of manipulation, but they do not meet at the end.
Things are censored so people cannot interpret them in their own way. Books are outlawed because they allow a person to form their own ideas, which leads to chaos. “If you don’t want a man unhappy politically, don’t give him two sides to a question to worry him; give him one” (Bradbury 58). Captain Beatty said this to Montag when he was explaining why the firemen do what they do. In the chase towards the end of the book the police arrest a man that is not Montag so the citizens are satisfied.
Lymon admires Macy’s masculine power, though he is treated cruelly by him: “Every minute he wanted to be following along behind this jailbird, and he was full of silly schemes to attract attention to himself. Still Marvin Macy either treated him hatefully or failed to notice him at all” (22).Thus, he agrees to help Macy avenge Amelia and follows his orders. Actually, he began to deride Amelia in order to please Marvin Macy. Cousin Lymon does not express his feelings for Macy. Rather, it is his actions that reveal his admiration and attraction towards
I feel that people should be nicer to Walter since he is not a bad boy though when people are making him angry he starts acting like a bad boy. In Walter 's class, people were making fun of his speech problem. This led Walter to act like a bad boy. I feel that Walter should not get angry and instead try and make the teacher notice more when his classmates have been making fun of him. “I read quickly, and there was a chorus of laughter in response” 42.
IM continuously refused to admit to himself that this newly discovered identity was true, as he thought it would greatly displease those around him. Although it greatly pleased him that he had the ability to be so friendly, and it lead him to feel overjoyed with the abilities and desire that this self-discovery led to. “I laughed, deep, deep inside me, giddy with the delight of self-discovery and the desire to hide it… I could not bring myself to admit it, it was too ridiculous” (241,242). He wanted the ability to remain strictly within himself, so that he was filled with the freedom and him alone - as well as the fact that others may ridicule him, especially the whites, and his lack of fear towards the higher
