Both tom Buchanan and George Wilson are two vastly different people but are alike in the most unusual ways. They are the only two characters in the book to use violence; both say they “love” Myrtle and both fight for their women only when they are about to lose them. That is where the similarities cease. Tom is the man who cheats on his wife daisy, with George 's wife Myrtle, and then proceeds to slap her when she would not stop speaking Daisy 's name. George, on the other hand, is a passionate and faithful husband to Myrtle and is crushed to learn that she was cheating on him so much so that he assassinates Gatsby whom he thinks was cheating with myrtle and murdered to get rid of the evidence of his adultery.
Quarter 3 Timed Write: The Crucible Darth Vader and The Joker were both nefarious villains because they were always one step ahead of their enemy. In The Crucible, Abigail is a nefarious villain because she thinks well on the spot which makes her ability to fight back stand out. Her willingness to do anything to get her way makes her villainy conspicuous. Abigail enhances the plot because you know that when it looks like Abigail isn’t going to get her way, she always is one step ahead and gets her way anyway.
There were many reasons for the tragedy in the shakespearean play Othello. But the biggest reason was the brilliant, cunning, sneaky, manipulative mastermind Iago. Because he had all of these qualities and his relentlessness to fulfill his goal to destroy othello he is the only person at fault. Iago is the only person at fault for what had happened to othello, desdemona, emilia, and roderigo (also cassio

The reader fully understands how evil the man is at the end of the story, when you see the amount enjoyment he gets for making people do horrible things. Other dark characters in the story are Goody Cloyse, the minister, and Deacon Gookin because they are supposed to be the role models of the town and they are committing evil acts. The characters in “I want to Know Why” are mostly average people. They make mistakes like any other person, but they are not grim and evil like the characters from “Young Goodman Brown”. The only person who might be seen as bad is the guy who wins the race in Saratoga and he didn't really do anything wrong it was just wrong in the eyes of the
The best example of Richards’s compulsive characteristics is the way he killed Frank. The Author writes very bluntly, “Richard shot Frank in front of the boys” (570). We can infer that the author writes this way, because he wants the reader to wonder why Richard is obsessed with his wife, and he loves her more than anything. She is his pride, and he will do anything to keep her, even if it means killing her lover in front of his children. This is why he is so compulsive when he kills frank.
When Macbeth hears a voice cry “sleep no more”(Mac.2.2.33), it was the beginning of many of his illusions. He suffered from guilt after killing King Duncan and wasn’t able to sleep. Macbeth goes on to have more illusions throughout the story such as when he saw the bloody ghost of Banquo. Macbeth was the only one that could see Banquo, making him think that “the table’s full”(Mac.3.4.46) when they went to sit down for dinner. Macbeth continues to see the ghost of Banquo throughout dinner causing him to have sudden and unexplained outbursts.
I finally realized Daisy had a huge impact in this book because of the article written by Leland Person Jr. called “Herstory” and Daisy Buchanan. In the first paragraph of the essay, Person explained what other people thought of Daisy Buchanan, “To Robert Ornstein she is criminally amoral, and Alfred Kazin judges her vulgar and inhuman” (250). Person responds to these claims by stating what he believes Daisy really is, “Daisy, in fact, is more victim than victimizer” (250). Person emphasizes that even though many people believe Daisy was evil, she actually should not be faulted because she was the one that was the victim. These findings have important consequences for the broader domain of world perspective.
Without this instance, Power's world delves straight into the heaviness of war and there is no moment of pause before diving into “A battle...sharp, and ugly.” (page 42) This is how she sets up the rest of the world for the many deaths about to occur. Powers' J. Caesar is ,”... a world melted away from what we recognize today but has been rebuilt.”
I am glad Tea Cake cared but maybe beating up the brother would have been a more direct hint to stay away from his wife. Or possibly just having an adult conversation. Maybe even just locking the door so they could not come in. Anything but beating his wife. What was just as bad was that everyone praised him and were jealous of their relationship.
This causes sadness in Harry, leading him to get in a fight with Craig Randall over the snide comments made about the house, "even though I [Harry] agreed with every word. " This exchange shows how Harry must face the challenge of whether to go along with what everyone else says, or defend his family 's honour. Another example of the challenges faced through growing up from childhood to adolescence is of Harry 's classmate Johnny Barlow. Johnny’s family consists of a drunk father and a brother who has ended in jail many times, leading to the people in the town thinking that Johnny himself is, “Good for nothing.” Due to all the gossiping, Johnny feels that he must leave the town temporarily for he feels alone and disconnected.
In F. Scott Fitzgerald's The Great Gatsby, we see a story of one girl torn between two men. Daisy is a bright girl who wants to do the right thing but doesn't know what the right thing is. Tom and Gatsby are men who both love Daisy, but we don’t know who truly loves her. I believe Gatsby truly loves Daisy because of how he treats her.
Everyone makes friends differently, everyone looks for different kinds of friends, and everyone feels the need to have friends. The characterization and the interaction of the characters is very dynamic, and is all seen through the main character Nick Carraway. Nick and Gatsby build a very powerful relationship based on companionship and love. The basis for the relationships of the characters in the Great Gatsby are a symbolism for the idea of self-worth and love. The way the relationship between Tom and Daisy is another example of how Fitzgerald will use characterization to show how the foundation of the relationships affect the relationship.
Greatness is not a destination,striving for “greatness” is unrealistic because there is no particular time or place in your life that you become remarkable. People often find themselves unhappy because they haven't reached flawlessness. Everyday can be different, greatness is a condition that is very controllable. One can not control what life throws at them but one can control their response to the situation. Therefore, personal morals and being an overall good person lead you and others to believe that you are great.
First, in our comparison and differences, we should talk about the characters. First is Tom while in the book it shows that he was a bit uptight having Nick around in the first few chapters, Tom in the movie is more relaxed and with great confidence a bit snobby. When we first meet Daisy in the book, it appears that she is having the time of her life hanging out with Jordan but when any talk starts to head towards the love for Tom, she immediately saddens. Seeming to hide from the world. While in the movie, she from the very beginning is sad when she sees Nick but cheers up after some talking to.
