Although the careless, suicidal Julian English inAppointment in Samarra and the careless, incurably dishonest Jordan Baker inThe Great Gatsby seem equally improbable candidates for self-respect, Jordan Baker had it, Julian English did not. With that genius for accommodation more often seen in women than in men, Jordan took her own measure, made her own peace, avoided threats to that peace: “I hate careless people,” she told Nick Carraway. “It takes two to make an accident.” Like Jordan Baker, people with self-respect have the courage of their mistakes. They know the price of things. If they choose to commit adultery, they do not then go running, in an access of bad conscience, to receive absolution from the wronged parties; nor do they complain unduly of the unfairness, the undeserved embarrassment, of being named corespondent.
Winston is not a person someone can admire, but he does deserve sympathy and pity. His vulnerability makes him so very human. If anything is to go about, Winston is an anti-hero, but at the same time, he is nevertheless the protagonist of the story and an "Everyman" type all at the same time. Julia and Winston both believe that at first, that their minds and their hearts are inaccessible. O'Brien then shows them that they are both wrong at the end and that everything Winston did is the worst type of crime.
Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde Anybody who thinks that he or she knows another person, even the closest one, inside out is mistaken. As proverb saying: “Every bean has its black”; in other words, everyone has secrets but some secrets are darker than others. Dr. Jekyll loved being a good and decent man and was ashamed of “the evil side of his nature” (Stevenson 52), so he decided to purify himself from evil-self. Unfortunately, Dr. Jekyll failed to do so; the darkness of his evil nature completely overpowered the light of his kind heart. Therein, a question emerges: Why the dark devoured the light in Dr. Jekyll’s personality and not vice versa?
Tom is seen to be a very racist person, and that is just from what he said about one book. Tom does not care about women either, he is a sexist person who only cares about himself. He broke Myrtle’s nose just because she kept saying Daisy’s name even though he told her to stop. More proof of Tom’s sexism comes from his affair with Myrtle. If Tom cared about Daisy he would not be seeing other women, it was also revealed that Myrtle was not the first person Tom had an affair with, which just proves this even further.
The grotesque is part of the whole story, since the banality of superficial conversation till the moral blindness and the disappointing ending. The grotesque shows the misperception of the world by Mrs. Hopewell and her daughters. People that are busy judging others and not seeing themselves often end up disappointed. The society is in chaos. Who knows the rules will win the game.
Mockingbird Victimization Do you ever wonder why people are victimized for no reason? In to Kill a Mockingbird, we read a lot about different characters being victimized for no reason.

Tim Burton uses drastic makeup, contrast, and lighting to prove that things are not always as they seem.

His appearance makes him look as if he is a monster, but Kim later figures out that he is very sweet, loving, and nowhere near what she thought he was like.
It would be untruthful to say that no one ever saw Julia and Gavin laughing together. However, on most occasions, Julia took offense to the well-intended jokes that Gavin made at her expense. Gavin could not understand why Julia’s feelings were hurt so easily over jokes. Instead of communicating to find out the reason, Gavin assumed it was because she was sensitive and took his jokes the wrong way. In Julia’s case, it might have been that she was textbook thinking like a woman, but to her, it was because she had endured bullying throughout middle school and high school.
