Turning from a prideful boy to being merciful toward his dead brother. In fact, it all began when his brother was born, “with a tiny body which was red and shriveled like an old man’s” (595). Doodle is weakened and incapable of doing activities normal kids do at his age. The narrator encourages Doodle to keep on pushing, but no sooner does the narrator learn that pushing Doddle over his limitations will sooner or later kill him. The narrator kills Doodle indirectly, as a consequence of the lack of knowledge he has about Doodle’s medical issues, and as said before, being enveloped in pride.
He believes in no religion, feels no love, and shows no emotion. Just like he covered up his problems with alcohol, he also uses the “cover” and comfort of Catherine’s hair to escape. It’s very easy to see how Henry has focused heavily on the physical pleasures of life, especially due to his lack of feelings. Because of all this, one might come to believe Henry is indeed a static character, but I feel that is not the truth. Henry learned many lessons about life throughout the timeline of the book and I feel these are the reasons he is a dynamic character.
The book talks about how rude Mr. Scrooge was and how cold he got during Christmas. He didn’t feel anything for anyone, he didn’t love anyone or anyone loved him. But it was because he didn’t appreciate stuff or people. He just thought about working and making money, well that’s what I think. For example, the book says this, "What else can I be," returned the uncle, "when I live in such a world of fools as this?
Since he was not supervising them, Robbie took off even though he does not have a driver license. This shows how he does not care for his kids and how he has lost the connection with his kids. Also, when the kids go to their rooms, they still have the same bed covers
Others say that Lennie is useless at his job and should stay with George at all times. Lennie likes to make trouble without even knowing what he is doing. When Curly punched Lennie in the face, Lennie did not want to fight back, but, then
As the novel progresses, they collectively struggle to keep order and they become savages. Golding 's message is that a society falls apart when rules are not enforced and there is a lack of respect for each other. A society cannot function without anyone enforcing rule and order. After the plane crashes, no one has taken the role as a leader yet so, all the boys are doing whatever they wish to do. This already gives an indication that their society is collapsing because rules are not enforced and no form of leadership has taken over.
The narrator starts to notice strange things about Bartleby: “he never spoke but to answer,” “never visited any refectory or eating house,” and “never went out for a walk” (Melville par. 92). The narrator realizes that Bartleby’s “body did not pain him; it was his soul that suffered” (Melville par. 93). The power to heal Bartleby’s leprosy is vested in the narrator as he is a boundary keeper of society: “Bartleby’s depiction as a leper – his isolation and rejection – that must be healed” (Zlogar 517).
I had ‘im too long.”…“Candy looked at Slim to try to find some reversal (to killing the dog). And Slim gave him none.” Candy tried to fight against them killing his own dog and did everything but had no one back him up. Even Slim, who is portrayed as a nice caring person to look up to in the book, doesn’t help him. To not have anyone to back you up when defending your stuff clearly shows that he’s alone. Without Georges and Lennie’s friendship no one would realize this but because George and Lennie defend each other Candy’s isolation is shown.
