All he does is gives them a reason to, which he can’t help because he is always drunk. He is saying the town is too stubborn to change. What techniques of persuasion did Atticus use during his summation speech to the jury? (appeals to emotion, appeal to own values, appeal to society, appeal to truth?) Atticus says he has sympathy for Mayella but her poor situation in life does not justify her putting Tom 's life in danger.
Liesel felt loved when Hans enter her room to soothe her. Another feeling that Hains gain was trust. He would come and sit with her and he would say “ Shh, I’m here, it’s all right”. “ Trust was accumulated quickly, due primarily to the brute strength of the man’s gentleness, his thereness.” On the other hand, Rosas didn’t demonstrate the same warmth torward Liesel. “she did love Liesel Meminger.
This shows that Perry had some issues with his father, which could have affected his personality later on, as one needs to feel the love of a parent. Water is a scarce resource; by using "wasted water" this may imply that Perry's love lasts only for a certain amount of time. Another simile used in the novel was ‘white as a ghost’, which provides a chilling tone. Additionally it reveals Perry's delicate side, because ‘white’ has innocent and pure connotations while ghost has frightening connotations. The use of the simile plays a big role in this as it emphasizes the great amount of fear Perry endured while committing the
The Great Gatsby. In the Great Gatsby, Fitzgerald demonstrates how the wealthy’s excessive consumption of alcohol brings out the worst in their characters. For instance, the negative parts of Tom’s personality are highlighted when he drinks. Tom drinks all throughout the party he attends with Nick. He becomes violent and aggressive with Myrtle, his mistress, and “making a short deft movement ...broke her nose with his open hand (Fitzgerald 41).” Tom’s altercation with Myrtle accentuates his hypocrisy and lack of self-control; while he doesn’t feel guilty for cheating on Daisy with Myrtle, he feels that he has the right to maintain his authority over Myrtle.
While Larry describes his father, Mick Delaney, as an alcoholic, Larry is the person who actually gets drunk. The humorous element arrives when Larry feels the effects of the drink and curses out his neighbors, saying “Go away, ye bloody bitches!” The situational irony of Larry being intoxicated,
Personal code: gbn188 Solo Project The theorist, the theory, and the contexts I have decided to study Antonin Artaud. I am drawn to him because I’m very interested in the psychological aspect of theater, and eliciting a response from the audience.

The town’s tone towards Dolphus Raymond is that they are disgusted by him, but since he is a drunk man who has no control over his choices it’s okay. He pretends to be a drunk man to give the town of Maycomb justification as to why he does what he does, “Mr. Dolphus Raymond lurched by on his thoroughbred. “‘Don’t see how he stays in the saddle,”’ murmured Jem. “‘How c’n you stand to get drunk ‘fore eight in the morning?’”(Lee 160).
On the other hand, Celie’s act of lovemaking with Shug is devoid of any guilt and is liberating. Further, it is a powerful ‘womanist’ text showing productive and strong bonds between women characters and their work culture which together combat the elephantine patriarchal exploitation.

Critics of Munro typically agree on her overall theme of femininity and coming of age in her writings; “Boys and Girls” emphasizes the ways in which young girls are socialized into a seemingly natural understanding of the sexist expectations and gender roles. Critics of Munro most often recognize two distinct features of her writing: her emphasis on female characters and feminist ideas, and a vibrant sense of realism that provides both imagery and symbolic meanings within her stories. These two factors are
Her self-assurance comes from a keen critical mind and is expressed through her quick-witted dialogue. Elizabeth 's sparkling and teasing wit brings on Lady Catherine 's disapproval and Darcy 's admiration. She is always interesting to listen to and always ready to laugh at foolishness, stating, "I hope I never ridicule what is wise or good. Follies and nonsense, whims and inconsistencies do divert me, I own, and I laugh at them whenever I can." Because of her exceptional powers of observation, Elizabeth 's sense of the difference between the wise and foolish, for the most part, is very good.
