McCandless himself had his reasons to hurt his parents that way mainly because they kept living a lie and it just exploded in their face when Chris found out. I am led to believe as well, that McCandless was trying to leave the Stampede Trail because he had forgiven them but since he couldn’t leave due to the river being so high and strong. McCandless had never anticipated or let alone plan to die just to hurt his parents. That was something that came totally unexpected and without his awareness. McCandless was also never a harm to people he met.

The Character of Walter Lee shows that greed blinding a person can cause him to forget about the ones he loves. In the play the author expresses, “Walter(doubled with laughter)’Mama you look ready to go out and chop you some cotton for sure” (28) while him and the family are all having fun and messing around. The quote proves just how happy Walter truly is with his family and how happy the family makes him. Mama also states in the
All these eight years-she who was my joy and pride- a hypocrite, a liar- worse, worse- a criminal!” (Ibsen). Although Torvald is right about Nora lying, he seems to have forgotten what Nora has done to try and protect his reputation and his pride. That indeed her behavior is quite twisted, she still acted in somewhat of a selfless way to protect her pompous husband. Torvald goes further and tells Nora: “You will still remain in my house, that is a matter of course. But I shall not allow you to bring up the children; I dare not trust them to you” (Ibsen).
This lack of color represents his objection to the status that the colors portray for the Heathers. JD bemoans the absence of justice, expressed when he speaks back to the “jocks” of the school. He is not afraid of defending himself, as the other students are. When Heather Chandler tells Veronica to write a counterfeit letter from Kurt to Martha Dunstock, although Veronica hesitates with her response she ends up acquiescing to Heather’s low level status and forges the letter.

Although Sklar may be trying to create a metaphor when saying, “If the U.S. government were a parent, it would be guilty of child abuse” (Sklar 15). This statement is actually shockingly true. As stated before, despite Sklar’s apparent lax tone, she continuously backs her words up with solid information. For example, her slight comedic route while discussing child poverty is followed with a frightening statistic that “... proportionately more children die before their first birthday in the United States than in 20 other countries” (Sklar 15). This really captures the audience 's emotions as well as appealing to their logic.
‘“Not know your own mother?” cries Auntie An-mei with disbelief. “How can you say? Your mother is in your bones!”’(Tan 40). The Joy Luck Club has recurring messages throughout the book, including: marriage and divorce, culture and beliefs, and mother and daughter relationships. The author writes with cyclical elements to show that mothers and daughters may be more alike than they may seem The theme of Marriage and Divorce is cyclical because two of the daughters get divorced, and one has great deal of problems in her marriage.
During the 1920’s all people wanted was fortune and a high reputation. Just like in Daisys case, she wanted the money and privileges that come along with being Tom although she is unhappy with her marriage. “You did it, Tom,” she said accusingly. “I know you didn’t mean to, but you did do it. That’s what I get for marrying a brute of a man, a great, big, hulking physical specimen of a ——” (Fitzgerald 16).
In the book, Great Expectations, shows us a prime example of the justice system, steotypes types relating to economic class, and loyalty to family and the people that mean the most to you.

That’s a bet I’d make on my hawk or my hound. I’d wager twenty times as much on my wife”(Shakespeare 5.2.76). This was the point when Petruchio loved his new creation, but the fact he only married her for money and is willing to pay that money away to prove that his fabrication was loyal to him. That may not be visible the love he has with the real Katherine, but with the trophy wife he now obtained. The vow Petruchio made to get money is now love towards his new found statue that he sculpted.
