The evidence is undeniable. Doodle's brother was extremely cruel to him from the time Doodle was born. One would think that Doodle's disability would be more than enough reason for his brother to feel sympathy for Doodle; not this brother. Doodle's brother was so hateful toward Doodle that he stated his desire to smother Doodle with a pillow. Doodle's brother also showed his cruel, ill feelings for his disabled brother, Doodle, by showing him the casket which the family built
People with disabilities are no less than regular people and they deserve the same love and respect. Brother obviously does not understand this because he is constantly acting like he is bettering Doodle’s life when his intent is his own personal gain. Brother feels the guilt of teaching Doodle to walk for his own personal gain when he reflects, “They did not know that I did it for myself, that pride, whose slave I was, spoke to me louder than all their voices, and that Doodle walked only because I was ashamed of having a crippled brother.” Brother finally learns what karma can do to a person when Doodle dies. The scene of Doodle’s death is depicted as “bleeding from the mouth, and his neck, and the front of his shirt were stained a brilliant red.” The traumatic experience of Brother seeing Doodle in such a state was when he learned the lesson of “What goes around comes around.” Questions and Answers: What do you think would have happened if Brother actually followed through with killing Doodle? I think Brother would live with the constant guilt of taking Doodle’s life.
The act of crying and screaming by Brother for the death of his brother Doodle is a pure tragic scene and by such scene the reader makes the readers feel that Brother loves his brother Doodle and for such love he tried to protect him from an outside world. Such ending of The Scarlet Ibis is surprizing for both the narrator and the reader. In fact, the death of Doodle after growing up is unexpected by neither the narrator nor the reader.

If I had my way, I’d be the son of a man fortunate enough to grow old at home. But it's the man with the most dismal fate of all they say I was born from” Telemachus is quite conflicted because he doesn't know his father’s true identity. Furthermore, he considers himself unfortunate to be born into his family because his mother his a troubled widow and his father [according to everyone else] is dead.

The Death of Doodle The allegory The Scarlet Ibis by James Huster is about 2 brothers., you should know That 1 brother is named doodle and he’s not that strong and his other brother is pushing him to hard he is the oldest and he does not like his brother (Hurst). In my opinion, I think that he’s not a good brother and is selfish.Furthermore, i think his brother killed doodle he did nothing for him when he called for help. (Hurst). Therefore his brother is not a real brother and at the end did not help him at the end of the story I believe it teaches the lesson that too much pride is bad because it can get in the away of your family and it’s not good for people that know you.

This relates to regret because he realized that he wasn't teaching him to walk for Doodle he was doing it for
A part in the story you know he loved his brother is when he said “momma he smiled! He’s all there! He smiled!” (James Hurst) but other time are when he said he was making a plan about smothering him in his sleep. When he was being conceded was when he says “They did not know that I did it for myself , that pride whose slave I was, spoke to me louder than all their voices, and that Doodle walked only because I was ashamed of having a crippled brother.” (James
