There is an interesting book written exactly on the consequences of hypnosis, called “A Stir of Echoes,” by Richard Matheson. A young man named Tom suffers an act of hypnosis which leads him onto hallucinating a young woman and feeling excruciating pain. A movie is also based off of it, but it drastically differs from the original book. The plot holds a large difference,
14). Using torture as a way to extract evidence is an inhumane way to treat those under accusation.The argument that a confession given under these circumstances is legitimate, is a false claim. This is due to the victim's mindset being compromised from the extreme and extensive methods of torture. Another example of the unacceptable evidence used in court against those accused is the presence of the “devil’s mark”. “The belief was that the devil branded the bodies of witches with symbolic yet concrete corporeal malformations such as marks and growths” (Darr, 361).
Throughout Wiesel’s childhood, his father never played a large role in his life and was described as a “rather unsentimental man” (Wiesel 2). The relationship between Elie Wiesel and his father, before they know the horror that awaits them, is very dull and in no way meaningful. Wiesel’s father does not only have a distant relationship with Weisel, but also with the rest of the family, which Wiesel realizes when he notes, “He [Wiesel’s father] was more concerned with others than with his own family”(2). In a way, Wiesel’s father even acts somewhat selfish when he does not allow young Wiesel to study the cabbala, which
But to no avail, Lennie does not understand the concepts and still views the world as a good place. An example from the text states “ S’pose you couldn’t go into the bunk house and play rummy ‘cause you was black.” (Steinbeck 72) The reader can clearly see how innocent Lennie Small really is. He was unable to comprehend the concept of racism and still views people in a positive light. Because of his innocence, Lennie Small continues to retain his perspective that Earth is a good place and, conversely remains unable to acknowledge important life concepts such as
The author discussed how the boys were not guided at all throughout the time of the story. They lacked an adult figure, without one, they believed there were no rules around. No way to get caught or be in trouble. He also claimed that everyone has their own inner aggressions, the cause for the boys’ case was the impact of what the whole island had in store for them. Another thing Golding discussed was the way the act of killing changes you.
In this he proves that painful understanding is better than blissful ignorance. Never questioning power and being submissive leads to wasted life. Thought it is wrong for society or the government to control the people, it is the people’s obligation to rise up against injustice as said in the” Social Contract” by Rousseau. Unfortunately in Plato’s Cave the prisoners “have been here from their childhood.” For their whole lives they stay ignorant and are unaware of the outside world.
The narrator starts to notice strange things about Bartleby: “he never spoke but to answer,” “never visited any refectory or eating house,” and “never went out for a walk” (Melville par. 92). The narrator realizes that Bartleby’s “body did not pain him; it was his soul that suffered” (Melville par. 93). The power to heal Bartleby’s leprosy is vested in the narrator as he is a boundary keeper of society: “Bartleby’s depiction as a leper – his isolation and rejection – that must be healed” (Zlogar 517).

When no one else showed up to the funeral it shows that all of his “friends” weren’t really his friends. Even though he was well known, he never had any true connections with anybody except Nick. Even though he was an influential person, no one really missed him. The fact that after his life ended, no one was really there for him and the brings a dark aspect to the resolution of the story. The colors black, grey, and lack of color have a variety of meanings in the book The Great Gatsby.
Julian is not someone you would look up to. This is because Julian’s double-sided, he bullies Jack Will and Auggie, and he doesn’t feel remorse. Julian isn’t someone you want to be like, because for one, he’s double-sided. This is because he starts the ‘boy war’. The boy war was when he turned almost all of the boys against August, a kid who has a craniofacial difference, and Auggie’s new friend Jack Will.
An example of this is Frankie. Frankie is a mentally challenged kid working for Doc, who feels like "There [is] no place for him. He wasn 't an idiot, he wasn 't dangerous, his parents, or parent, would not pay for his keep in an institution." (Cannery, Pg. 443).
Steinbeck intended for the character the reader will feel the most sympathy for is Lennie. The mental disabilities of Lennie, included with his overwhelming strength that he can’t control, makes you feel the most sympathy for him because he’s mostly unaware of the problems he causes and doesn’t comprehend the extreme consequences for his actions. Lennie’s mindset is that of a small child, innocent and curious, never out of anger or meanness, but the fact that he’s a man with beast-like strength is what causes the trouble for Lennie. Every bad action Lennie has committed has never came from a state of anger. There was never any meanness, nor anger in his intentions.
And that’s a great thing for the defense side and the prosecution side. The defense side was completely lazy to what is said by Richard. Nothing was ever explained to him, neither was any effort of his freedom an interest to the defense side. A kid who lost into the system and caught by a plea bargain is the worst to imagine for any person. Richard was brain washed and manipulated to take the plea bargain.
Growing up in a world revolving around Biff, he was never given the chance to excel. Rather, he was left neglected to grow up in the shadow of his older brother. Happy’s actions in the play demonstrate a deeply rooted sense of insecurity: an ever-present need for attention. Despite numerous obvious pleas for recognition, like when Happy said to his father, “I lost weight Pop, you notice?” (Miller 52), he never received so much as a slight acknowledgement. His accomplishments were never recognized, let alone celebrated by Willy, which fostered an environment of loneliness and insecurity for Happy.
