During all of the struggles Elie gains a bit of life knowledge, and learns more emotions about himself. If this journey never happened Elie would still be focussing about his studies and not about his family. A fact Elie acquires during the holocaust is always to stay positive in hard times. An example of this is when Elie is running for miles and notices men giving up just makes Elie think about when he can sleep and eat at the next camp. When news comes that the Russians will save the prisoners, Elie keeps this as a positive and keeps thinking this horrifying journey will be over.
James Baldwin : “Sonny's Blues” This character in Baldwin’s story, “Sonny’s Blues”, Sonny himself is having a battle within himself. This man deals with physical and emotional imprisonments occurring in his life making him in a sense free, but then again not. Whereas he deals with physically being locked up in prison and the other hand having his true main goal in a sense on a “hold” or even locked up for now. These prisons for this man are oppressing him from achieving what he really truly desires, he knows and has his goal in his hands, but he’s far from fully grasping onto it. Imprisonments oppress us in a very impacting way and it isn’t until we break free that we can finally breathe.
Sonny knew that he wasn’t the only one going through rough times, his older brother was still taken aback and in pain from Grace’s death. From the narrator listening to Sonny’s music the narrator was able to understand everything from Sonny’s painful experiences, his family’s grief from the death of grace and even what his parents experience when they were still alive. Furthermore, Sonny figured that the only way to get his brother to understand him is to have him listen to his music because when Sonny tried to talk to his older brother there were misunderstandings as Suzy Bernstein Goldman, a criticism writer for Sonny’s Blues, states “There is a greater brotherhood among people than mere kinship. Moreover, the narrator realizes that their music saves them, for it “seemed to soothe a poison out of them.” The narrator’s simultaneous
As Darl rides on the train to Jackson, he only responds to the inquiries of the mental institution workers by rambling, “Yes yes yes yes yes” (Faulkner 253). In this narration, he has become an onlooker and no longer actively contributes to the development of plot. His responses to people on the train demonstrates his inability to deal with his failure to stop his family’s journey, and his laughter is a coping mechanism to deal with the disenchantment he has with his family. Cash chooses not to help him, and his family proves to be unaware of the fraudulency they epitomize. He manifests his trauma by speaking in the third person, repeating, “Darl is our brother, our brother Darl” (Faulkner 254).
In the sixth poem, the speaker declares, that he is henceforth dead to all human endeavour. He only wants to conjure the beloved to his mind and imagine new conversations with her. Nothing else matters to him, and he cries when the images from his dreams disappear in the cold morning. This poem is again addressed to the beloved or the speaker’s dream image of her. The emotional contrasts in the text and the different dynamics and textures in the music facilitate the shaping of this song.
Instead of enjoying her time away from her family, all she thinks about is how they might be hurt and that it is all her fault. Soto says, ”But an ill feeling stirred inside her. She felt awful about arguing with her father. She felt bad for her mother and two brothers, who would have to spend the next three hours in the car with him. Maybe he would do something crazy, like crash the car on purpose to get back at her, or fall asleep and run the car into an irrigation ditch.
Everyone was just waiting to finally get the opportunity to bury their mother and continue living their lives, except Darl. From this point we see his emotional state change from collective and wise to unstable. As he is being put on the train Darl describes the event, “they put him on the train, laughing, down the long car laughing”(253). Here we can see that Darl was not able to resist the death of his mother. He was not tough enough to cope with the loss and it got to him.
Changing his name was to free himself from the restrain of being wanted. Although his motives relied heavily on acquiring a passport and flying to Mexico it was also to avoid confrontation. Moreover, any communication between Slaney and his peers, evoked anxiety, resulting in segregation from others. When he’s introduced to the crew in Hearn’s basement, he felt intuitively hesitant, especially when he discovered Cyril Carter – who spent six months in a mental asylum – is leading the operation. Slaney states, “The man’s unstable.
He worked hard to learn how to write great songs and also how to sing. Young’s music was not only good, but also very impactful. He wrote songs to not only warn, but attack bad things, such as violence, racism and the use of drugs. The song “Southern Man” attacked racism. The song “Southern Man” is about a man with a bunch of black slaves and how the black slaves do not use violence, but instead hold back their frustration and do not go to violence.
The girl is trying to decline to have the operation but the couple keeps arguing. Finally, the express train arrives and the two prepare to board. The girl tells the man that she 's "fine." She 's lying, hoping to keep him quiet. The
Moreover, David faces the challenge of building a relationship with his wife, Audrey, yet responds with disinterest. This is apparent when he plans to leave his family and go to New York. The babysitter says, "I didn 't know you guys were moving to New York," and Audrey replies, "We 're not moving," expressing that David is planning to leave his family behind instead of fixing his relationship with Audrey. This is also established when David is on the train, and when a woman sits beside him, he takes off his ring. This reveals that he does not want to get back with Audrey and face this challenge, and instead responds with acts of disinterest.
The Last Battles had ended and we the americans had won the war. The streets of Washington, D.C. filled with joy and relief as the soldiers returned to their families and loved ones. Some soldiers were injured, broken, clueless, or not there. My father would be coming home on the train. So my mother, my little brother Jack, and myself stood in front of the train station waiting, watching, and listening for the first two trains, but when they did arrive father wasn’t there.
However, after a while, the train would stop and the SS would let them throw out people who they thought were dead, and the reactions to this are shown with, “Here’s one [body] take him! They undressed him, the survivors avidly sharing out his clothes. The living rejoiced, there would be more room” (Wiesel, 94). This shows how people were getting thrown out of the train (some dead, some alive) all because everyone wanted more space, as well as their belongings. The prisoners didn’t want to throw others out of the train (especially if they were alive), but they had to in order to be more comfortable, which could help them survive.
The fear of killing a boy his age would haunt him forever. Lastly, he shows he is fearful when people were going to die. He killed bob because he thought that Ponyboy was going to get killed, and he jumped into that church, risking his life to save many children 's lives. I think he didn 't want to see other lives go to waste after he took one himself. Johnny had a good reason to be scared.
After they discovered the subway they went they everyday and experimented with new stuff they got from the community and started learning about the unmentionable times. After a while of experimenting he discovered the power of light. Light could change the whole community but when he tried to show it to the council they all shunned him and didn’t accept it into the community. Throughout the whole book Equality had to fight the society and their ways they saw the community should be, but Equality had a different invision of the community, a community that was filled with individualism and not Equality, Collectivism, or Conformity. He thought that the community should know about the unmentionable times and no beheld secret from
