This highlights another main idea, that life is a gift and there are always people who have it worse. This same concept returns in the last line of her speech when Rowling finishes with, “I wish you all very good lives”. This statement is directly related to the prior words of the young man. As well as this, Rowling repeated this to her audience in hopes of keeping the cycle going. To Rowling, aiding in others happiness as well as helping those who cannot help themselves is important.
A Separate Peace by John Knowles is a story about teenage boys attending a private school during World War II. Many boys were being forced into war when they turned eighteen and had to leave their old lives behind. Older boys at The Devon School were taught about following orders and staying fit. Younger boys did not receive this training, yet were still expected to join the war when they were old enough. The younger boys managed to create a separate peace for themselves by having a Winter Carnival.
When we read books, we expect our main characters to be these gleaming representations of everything good about humanity. Certainly they may be flawed, but in the end they always win the final battle, or find true love, or save the world. Troy Maxson, main character of Fences, is one of the most tragically human main characters ever. He juggles dozens of sentiments and responsibilities. From his experience in the Negro League and discrimination, to running away from home and his prison time, to his life with Rose and his son Cory, Troy has learned some hard lessons, lessons that, as time goes on and become less true, he still feels responsible to his children to teach them.
Another debate Shakespeare incensed questions the age and class that Shakespeare should be incorporated in. Throughout years of interpreting the complex texts written by Shakespeare, many believe that Shakespeare expands too much for comprehension, making some students believe these plays are for only people with higher intellect. In truth Shakespeare writes too relatable plays to be passed up to only those Advanced Placement and Honors scholars. The end to this debate may never be seen but through polls, scientific evidence, and effects around the world, learning Shakespeare can seem like a logical answer. High school students, especially the marginalized, should read Shakespeare’s plays to engage the mind, to relate to those plays, and to learn to move through life more effectively.
Author’s writing way of telling about Georgiana was very good, but he must have given something about her character as well. I think the way he explains the spot on Georgiana was the best way to attract the readers because the reader gets some imagination in his mind. The birthmark seems good to many people but not for his husband. The author in this way wants to say that the thing that when some do not have a thing then he likes that but when we get those things, then we do not feel comfortable with them and we want some improvement. Aylmer is the philosopher and that is why he always thinks the things should be just perfect.
A seventeen-year-old boy’s superficial discontent towards his disabled father’s return from the hospital draws attention towards what is supposed to be the strongest bond: a father-son relationship. Throughout Athol Fugard’s play “Master Harold” … and the boys, Hally tries to suppress his mixed feelings after each call from his mother, who intends to bring his father home. Athol captures Hally’s true sentiments towards his father through two phone calls, initially provoking irrational anger and uncontrollable emotions, but eventually leading to a defeated reveal of truth. The first phone call from Hally’s mother introduces the boy’s bipolar attitude towards his father. He initially seems concerned, asking about his father’s state and condition, but his distress quickly turns into hostility.
Thanks to his air of toughness he is accepted into the gang, and under his audacious leadership the gang is pushed to new heights. However, though he appears tough and audacious, Trevor also has an innocent childlike side that is revealed when conflict cracks his outer shell. This contrasting dimension of naïveté and morality that we discover late in the story makes Trevor a dynamic and likeable character, prompting us root for him despite our better judgment. Graham Greene’s choice to explore the cracks in the walls we build around ourselves as well as the ones we live in elevates “The Destructors” from a short story about young boys wreaking havoc to a thoughtful composition on what must be destroyed in order to rebuild, reveal, or

Just as Khan said :" There is a way to be good again." He final choose made everhting chang, including his weakness.He gained a sense of reponsebility, it was real new Amir. This section of the story really touched me to see the young Amir finally grow up and mature. It was like a coming of age expierence for Amir to finally grow out of his old self and into a new man. Throughout this part of the novel i have to admit i felt really bad for his friend Hassan because he is a really great friend of Amir but it seems to me that Amir does not truely respect and honor his friends loyalty and love for him.
The novelist has made this book meaningful but also something that gives the readers a good laugh with its witty comments, embarrassing moments and humorous characters. “But mostly I’d like to thank everyone who didn 't show up for the meeting. I love you guys – I really couldn 't have done it without you, Thank you……. Thank you…….. Thank you’, and with that Razza slumped on his desk, seemingly overcome with emotions”.
