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
I feel like the authors opinions work into the sources because Equiano the author had a silver spoon he loved being traded because he got to go to beautiful countries such as "Tinmah"(Equiano). But until he was traded and treated like a normal slave he hated it. He hated the smell of slaves and thought slaves being chained up was inhumane. For Falconbridge it said, "I was so overcome with the heat, stench, and foul air, that I had nearly fainted" (5). So his opinion was he hated being a doctor because he had to deal with the awful stenches and bad air when he was trying to help fix these slaves and he wanted the middle passage to
Through Curley’s wife, Crooks, and Candy, John Steinbeck had used his way to state how those characters had endured their loneliness throughout the book “Of Mice and Men”. Curley’s wife would not be a pleasant character in many ways. As a wife of manager’s son, she was described as a charming and flirty woman and treated others with scorn. However, her appearances later had shown actually she was just an immature, innocent and lonely woman who missed her chance to be a successful movie star in Hollywood and compelled to marry Curley. “If I’d went, I wouldn’t be livin’ like this, you bet” (Steinbeck 84) Accordingly, she felt unfair for her life and doesn’t want to get stuck on the ranch but she knew she could do nothing about it.
“It ain 't right, somehow it ain 't right to do 'em that way. Hasn 't anybody got any business talkin ' like that—it just makes me sick." (294) This quote shows growth and empathy because Jem is distraught that Tom has been convicted. Jem is mad that Atticus lost. He has also become emotionally interested in the trial, so his sadness is partially the outcome of his anger at the injustice and the outcome of the empathy he would developed for Tom
In Langston’s poem, he talks about how he was unwanted by the family he lives with,and how he is treated unfairly. Although he did not appreciate this unfair treatment he still stayed positive. Hughes describes a typical night in his home when he states, “ I am the darker brother. They send me to eat in the kitchen When company comes, But I laugh, And eat well, And grow strong¨(Hughes 2-7). Here, he describes having to sit away from company, because of the color of his skin.
During this chapter in the book, Chip begins questioning Tyler’s strength in a negative way after his father comments on how he looks surprisingly strong. His arrogance and stubbornness come through after he states, “Are you a chicken” (page 15), after Tyler declines his offer of armwrestling. This statements shows us how Chip had an overconfident attitude as was always looking for attention from his friends. “This wont take long, Chip told his buddies” (Page 15), was another passage from the story that describes Chip’s mean and cocky overall personality because he is saying that Tyler was weak when clearly he wasn’t. A glaring example of Chip’s leadership is when he protects his friend Parker from Tyler while playing a cruel prank on Yoda (Tyler’s best friend).
Harry had a lot of anger built up inside of him from the stress he had been under, the sarcasm and misreading just added to that anger. Nevertheless, Harry was angry when he finally got to move from his bed. Even though the doctor did everything he could to help Harry, the sarcastic comment made Harry take out some of the anger on the doctor. Harry was more mad at himself than the doctor because Harry misread the situation. Because Harry had been under such stress, his anger was understandable.
Generosity, courtesy, chastity, chivalry and piety; the five virtues all the knights of king arthur's round table would plague to uphold. Yet, even Sir. Gawain, King Arthur's nephew, succumbed to temptations and broke his plague in Sir. Gawain and the Green Knight. After this transgression Gawain is heartbroken, but considering everything his has done in the course of the of the story, I believe that he is being too hard on himself.
Huck struggles to come to terms with himself, it is almost as though he is disappointed that he did that. Throughout the story Huck realizes how awful slavery is and doesn’t know why people are okay with it. At one point in the story Huck does the unthinkable and apologizes to Jim for a prank. “It was fifteen minutes before I could work myself up to go and humble myself to a slave, but I done it, and I warn’t ever sorry for it afterward, neither”(86). It is unbelieveable that Huck worked up the courage to apologize for something he did wrong, especially to a
Douglass was not exempted from this; and perhaps due to his intelligence and young age at the time, he suffered great depression and suicidal thoughts. All this mental suffering originated from learning about exactly what freedom is and that he would never have it since he was a slave for life. Here Douglass reveals in his own words the degree of depression understanding his condition made him suffer: “I often found myself regretting my own existence, and wishing myself dead; and but for the hope of being free, I have no doubt but that I should have killed myself, or done something for which I should have been killed.” (40) By saying that he “regretted my own existence, and wished myself dead”, Douglass reveals to the reader that he would have preferred never to have been born, to having been born in slavery divested of any probable chance at freedom. To Douglass the hope of gaining freedom, no matter how slight, was the only thing keeping him going. That without freedom, without liberty, life was not worth living.
Before he leaves though, he "yell[s] at the top of [his] goddam voice, 'Sleep tight, ya morons ' " (68)! Although it is a shame, any reader can see that Holden seems to have nothing going right or in a positive way all because of his negative attitude. Therefore, this attitude leads him to almost care about nothing. Though Holden may seem to be a lost cause because of his negative attitude, he thankfully has an epiphany that changes his view towards the world because he realizes that people have to grow up. When Holden visits his younger sister, Phoebe, he is happy to see her, but when they begin talking their conversation turns negative.
