Both Grace and Smitty suffered the backlash of the protagonist’s actions. It was neither of their fault but they had to face the consequences all the same. Smitty and Grace aren’t similar at all in appearance or character, but that lends to the unjust treatment. Smitty is short and doesn’t pose much of a threat, which makes him a less threatening target to the mob. They can injure him without worry of him fighting back.
This interpersonal conflict created a negative toll on the two characters and because they lacked the “strategies for managing conflict,” they ended up fighting in the “Pandoran War.” Another example of interpersonal conflict found within the film was when Jake Sully had to tell the Omaticaya clan and the girl he fell in love with, he was initially only there to infiltrate their clan and report to the corporals. Thus, they knew he was aware of the destruction that was coming to their home and the fact he betrayed their trust; he was then bounded by the Omaticaya clan and told he “[would] never be one of the People.” Thankfully, after proper conflict management, he was able to regain the Omaticaya clan’s trust and help aid in the Pandroan war against the
For example, “‘You let the fire go out”’ (Golding 69). This quote shows how the Savages have no regard for the rules that Ralph’s group put into place. The differences when it comes to the groups thoughts on authority cause a great divide ending in the death of Piggy. Overall, the groups of both books act very negatively towards differences which causes terrible
After Valjean let Javert go he couldn’t understand why someone he thought was so bad would do something so nice for someone who could easily be considered an enemy in the eyes of a criminal like valjean. This thought ate and
However, Holden becomes one as he is actively against the society that requires him to go along with the crowd and any bourgeoisie understandings, as suggested by the paragraph 3.1 “the most terrific liar.” Nevertheless, the repetition of “fucken” implies that Vernon is discontent with society as well. Little ́s thoughts are as straightforward: (page 60) ”Makes me want to puke.” Similarly, Holden Caulfield does it in his own way: (page 55) “She’s old as hell…”
Even though Cassius does plot against Caesar, he does it for political reasons only, while Aaron obviously hates the world and tells Luscious that he enjoyed doing all the evil things he has done and would do it ten thousand more times. They don’t exactly show the same attitude because these characters are not part of the same play. Titus Andronicus is a revenge tragedy and Julius Caesar is a political play, therefore Cassius is a politician who does anything in his power to protect Rome and its citizens. This is also why Aaron does evil things to Rome; he had a dark tone every time he spoke because he needs to get revenge. Another interesting point is that Cassius is portrayed as a good Roman while Aaron is considered a Goth.
He treats these people poorly and so they humiliate him and lock him away, “good Sir Topas, do not think I am mad: they have laid me here in hideous darkness”(4.2.2049-2051). The trick is cruel, so much so that even Sir Toby feels some remorse, though he fosters a strong dislike for Malvolio, “I would we were well rid of this knavery. If he may be conveniently delivered, I would he were” (4.2.2053-2054). One might be prompted to feel sympathy for Malvolio in some depictions of this work and in others one might understand and even support his punishment. That is what decides whether or not his situation can be deemed just.
Antony had stated that he would rather wrong himself and the people, than wrong the honorable men. Although Antony said he would wrong himself, he comes out of the war spotless. This portrays irony because instead of wronging himself like he stated to the people, he chose to wrong everyone else, excluding himself. Although this line from Antony’s speech caused a violent outcome, it also helps to further on what the plot could have been. Antony did wrong to the people, as he lead them into a civil war, where many people perisheddied.
Along with the way that Huck treated Jim, Twain made him sound like an unintelligent thing, not a human being but just a thing. There were many problems that Jim faced with Huck and one is specifically pointed out as the reason The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn was a racist tale and not one that started to show racial tolerance. During the escape of Jim from Aunt Sally’s house Huck devises a simple plan to get Jim out of the barn safely But then Tom comes along and makes the plan much more complicated and insanely dangerous for Jim. Huck instead of stopping Tom from doing this plan asks him why they should do a complicated plan that might hurt Jim and then decides to revert back to his old self and toy with Jim. After all the morale improvements that Huck has made in the end Jim is still being toyed with instead of treated like the free human being he was.
They also rejected the claims which they were being accused of. Because the characters in the godfather are family men, and claim to never commit crimes again, they continue to commit severe crimes very frequently. In both situations it relates to them both not being able to take ownership and pay the consequences for their mistakes. From a Morality perspective, looking back at the social contract theory its states that “The belief is that human beings got together long ago in social groups and they entered a social contract, or agreement, to act in a particular way” going off of that their is a reason for the criminal code of conduct and for prison systems set in place. Everyone makes mistakes in life, some are excusable and some are not.
Myles Hypse February 3rd, 2017 English 1B 3:30-4:40pm Two Psychopaths Both of these stories give the reader a good look into the eyes of two psychopaths, who both refuse to take no for an answer. One of them, Arnold Friend although at first appearing friendly, is nothing more than a malicious predator, similar in kind to The Misfit, who greets his victims in a much more sinister way. The two characters, when stood side by side, almost seemed as they become one, yet are polar opposites. When one compares the character Arnold Friend to that of The Misfit, more similarities come forward than differences.
Hunahpu and Xbalanque are an important idea in the Popol Vuh because they explain the struggles of between good and evil.

We will kill you, for none among you shall now be saved,” (Christensen 187) and “then all Xibalba begged humbly, weeping.”
