Huck Finn isn't afraid of a challenge not when it comes to people he cares about. He knew that by helping Jim escape slavery he was going against everything he was taught by the people around him. It wasn't what society expected of you, but he didn't care, all he cared about was setting his friend ,Jim, free. In the beginning of the novel Huck sees Jim as a slave, never treated him any less or any more than what he was. Yet as the story and relationship between them progressed his opinion towards Jim changed from being a slave who is beneath him to being a good friend, his
As we have deducted these two are two completely different people, while the kid stands by his message to society not paying attention to the possible consequences, Marx will do say whatever he can to please the others, a perfect example of this contrast is when the savage is arguing with Mustapha Mond about freedom not caring of the problems that could follow while Bernard is stating everything possible so that he doesn’t get in trouble the author shows this character’s weakness by writing “You can’t send me. I haven’t done anything. lt was the others. I swear it was the others.”(232) while he portrays the teen’s strength and leadership when he writes “But the new ones are so stupid and horrible. Those plays, where there’s nothing but helicopters flying about and you feel the people kissing.
In the two stories, “Enemies’ and “Friends”, from Tim O'Brien's The Things They Carried, O’Brien introduces two men, Jensen and Strunk. They are both fighting for the same side, but act violently toward one another for no real reason. The social codes and contracts that society is normally governed by have become arbitrary. Most of the time, those who steal are punished so they know that they shouldn’t do it again and so justice has been enacted. However, in the first story, “Enemies,” the complete lack of an attempt by Jensen and Strunk to resolve their conflict using peaceful and healthy conversation, or even going to a superior, demonstrates that normal social contracts have begun to break down.
It is revealed that as soon as he had an affair with Abigail, he confessed to Elizabeth the next day because of the guilt he was carrying around. Also in Act 4, he was highly conflicted over whether or not to confess to working with the devil to escape death. In the end, he decided lying was a sin he did not want to commit and chose to die a honest man rather than survive as a deceptive man. So in the end it is clear to see that John Proctor still is a good man despite his short-lived affair with Abigail. He was an honest, good-hearted man who wished for nothing more than to live a good life with his wife and children.
In winsel’s speech he tills about how “neutrality helps the oppressor never the victim” silence encourages the tormentor never the tormented .wiesel keeps trying to repeat this speech his ideas because he does not want it to happen again. That he has lived to till everybody his story so that our nation’s history does not repeat.so we know what to do next time it happens. We will stand for the tormented and fight the tormentor. Wiesel is trying to relay this message to so we will do it because as he sated himself in his speech “if we forget them they will die a second time”. Which means that if we forget what happened during world war two and all the holocaust survivors and all they went through and what happened in that camp all the death .in some camps the atrocities that they did to get further in the war.so he wants us to remember the pain the death and the suffering that
Trevor finds a wad of money in Old Misery’s house when destroying it and brings the money to Blackie, who assumes they are going to keep the money, but Trevor claims they “‘aren’t thieves,’” and that he didn’t want “‘to steal anything from this house’” (Greene 55). Trevor and the gang only destroyed everything in the house never stealing anything which leads him to assume he has done nothing unjust. Trevor also believed he was in the right, because he didn’t mean anything personal to Old Misery. He saw Old Misery as someone who was just standing in the way of his plans, and he didn’t mean for Old Misery’s life to fall apart just like the house, but it did. In Trevor’s mind he had done nothing wrong, because to him people just have to do what is necessary living in the world that he is, and for Trevor, taking down that house was necessary and not stealing anything made it
Yes, I also do think it is wrong for him to be discriminated due to his disorder, but there may have been other ways around it. Secondly, Anton Vincent’s brother tells him what he is doing is illegal and is against the law, therefore he is not following the rules. But Vincent tells him that he has gotten to this position on his own merit. Vincent is willing to go jail afterwards because he just wants to live his dream. I think that Vincent would not have had to break the rules if they did not discriminate against him, therefore they did not leave him with very many options.
He became free from the pain, free from the embarrassment, and free from the ridicule. Both hester and Dimmesdale kept their unholy union hidden for so long because they believed it was for the bets. Unknowingly, they were causing more harm because they had flawed logic. They believed anyone could be free if know one else knew but in reality they only way to be free is in the truth,whether it is with an
One reason George was justified in killing Lennie was that George had realized Lennie would never get better and their dream would never come true. “-I think I knowed from the very first. I think I knowed we’d never do her. He usta like to hear about it so much I got to thinking maybe we would” (Steinbeck 78). George wanted a better life someday for himself and for Lennie, but deep down he knew Lennie’s limitations and accepted that the dream was never meant to be.
Not to mention when Danforth is asking if letting Proctor’s wife live longer, then will he drop the case. Proctor declines this agreement and seeks to free those he deems are falsely accused. As can be seen Proctor is a selfless man who will sacrifice what he loves for the betterment of others. Months of torture didn’t break Proctor’s will, and this is shown in great detail as John tears up his confession. As soon as Proctor is given the chance to live and abandon his friends, he is unsure.
My dad had his hot buttons when it came to the rules and if I broke them it sent his mood spiraling out of control. The two biggest rules to follow were to never question my father and always do as I was told to. Easier said than done when the rules were unclear and ever changing. What was very clean and never changing were the consequences to broken rules or disobeying. The consequence to disobeying or breaking rules was my dad’s anger; the way he dealt with his anger is a whole other story.
Violence can trigger emotions that cannot be undone which can lead to regret. Wes’s father wanted to teach Wes that violence is not tolerated especially a lady. For the other Wes, he never had a father to guide him to make the right decisions or reprimand when he was wrong. This is one of the key factors into why the other Wes got into trouble with violence and drugs. Even though the author did experience trouble with violence and drugs, he realized violence would lead to more violence.
Because Wes had no boundaries for what he could do this led him down a criminal path of dealing drugs. He knew how the drug game worked “…the streets would get him that money back, and more”(page 74). Wes without any expectations, but to make money gets himself into trouble, and “getting arrested was starting to feel routine”(page 114). Since Wes has no expectations for him, he doesn’t fulfill his true potential, while the author was pushed to his limits and beyond allowing him to exceed everyone’s
And he cut them open often enough that The Officials were on to him. Russo hadn 't actually been warned by them -- no one ever warns a serial killer -- but he had noticed men in sharp-looking uniforms, watching him. He still believed it was worth it. The microchip, Russo thought, was the source of all violence in the world. He figured that the people should learn, rather than having an implant to do all the thinking for them.
Throughout Dally’s action, he shows that he is heartless and that he will not care if someone gets hurt. When Dally picked fights or robbed he joined gangs this made him look like a thug. As ponyboy describes the gang he has no other explanation for Dally other than the fact that he is cold. When we see how Dally behaves we also get fooled by his actions. As Ponyboy gets the time to see all of his actions he notices that he truly has a heart.
