Get to know the person as who they really are before you start to judge. In To Kill a Mockingbird written by Harper Lee, many characters have some very misleading appearances. One side of the book is about Boo Radley living near Atticus. They assume he is a very bad, scary person because he never comes out of the house. From what they see, the house is falling apart and is very dark inside all the time.
January 3, 2006, while shopping at her local store Ms Nancy Park was alleged to have been shoplifting. Ben Gordon, from the Loss Prevention Department, shouted for Nancy Park to stop then grabbed her by the arm to pull her inside the store. Nancy Park lost her balance and fell onto a store checkout counter. After Ms. Park fell onto the counter, she made numerous complaints about her back injury to Ben, but her complaints were not answered by ben; instead she was made to wait on the store Manager, so a search could be conducted. After she waited and hour to be searched nothing was found in her position to suggest that she was shoplifting.
She ultimately found someone to talk to and his name was Peter. He was the only boy around her age in the secret annex. He was once one of the people that did not like her. Later on a thief was lurking in the warehouse that absolutely terrified all the people in the annex. The thief left and everyone in the annex was scared that he was going to turn them in.
After Marilyn swallowed the tablets Murray and Greenson didn’t call the ambulance as planned instead they waited until she died. To create more suspicions the official statement on her death given by Murray couldn’t be reliable since she had changed her testimony multiple times. For instance her second testimony stated that she found Marilyn’s body at around midnight and called Marilyn’s publicist first. Was she told what to say? Coincidentally after the incident she flew over to Europe for a vacation.
In the novel, she expressed her emotions and thoughts through her poem, Taking Off. One verse states, “They say, I must be careful, to stop and think and rest. But that’s against my judgement that I use when I know best.” (Bryant, 2002, p. 71) This quote demonstrates that she was in the first stage of the identity development theory, specifically identity diffusion, created by James Marcia. Bryant had not yet made a commitment nor was she willing to try to accept any therapist's advice. A few nights when she was successful escaping out of the hospital, nurses found her sitting in her wheelchair in the middle of road, with her headphones in, unable to hear if a car was coming.
After the blitz, few buildings stand, one of those being Mr. Thomas’s (Old Misery). Mr. Thomas allows T to come inside his house for a tour. After seeing the house T reports to the boys that, “Old Misery’s going to be away all tomorrow and Bank Holiday” (Greene). His absence gives the boys many reasons to destroy his house without him
The police investigation team classified the death as suicide and dismissed it, but it did not end there. The lady’s husband had a mistress with whom he wamted to live in peace after his wife was gone, but things didn’t work out the way he planned. The man tried to sell his house but he was not lucky and finally he made the decision to move in there with his mistress and son. For one thing, the man had huge debts to pay off and it was causing him enough misery on its own. To make things worse, strange things began to happen in his house.
The next morning a neighbor had complained about a scream and the police showed up. The servant played it cool and said it was merely him having a nightmare, and the old man was out of town. The police believed him and just hung out in the bedroom, but the servant’s anxiety was building and the beating of the old mans heart grew until the servant lost his mind and turned himself
For example, Dr. Montague sees the house as a simple run-down family home, in the name of science he is trying to prove that the house has no real phenomena happening inside of it. However, Eleanor sees the house as a typical haunted house because she wants to believe in the mystery of the house. “The house was vile. She shivered and thought, the words coming freely into her mind, Hill House is vile, it is diseased; get away from here at once” (Jackson 23). In contrast, Dr. Montague’s view tells something different of the house “No, the menace of the supernatural is that it attacks where modern minds are weakest, where we have abandoned our protective armor of superstition and have no substitute defense” (Jackson 102).
“The tractor driver who comes to demolish his house says it would do no good for the farmer to shoot him, since he’s just an ordinary working stiff doing his job and would be quickly replaced by another. When the farmer counters that he will then shoot the person who gave the order, the tractor driver replies that this too would be useless, since that individual is simply a bank employee"(Bellamy 19). In this quote, you can see how even the hands of the employees of the bank are tied. They cannot fix the situation even if they wished to do so. This goes back to when Steinbeck says that the bank has become a "monster," "which draws from the principle that, “the landlords interest is inimically opposed to the interest of the tenant farmer.” Marx and Steinbeck's arguments both serve as a critique of the application of capitalism to farming, and the influence of industrialization" (Jasinski 29).
