In the opening of the story, the narrator is ashamed of Doodle, but in time, the narrator develops into a forgiving, loving person. This overall change was sparked by the death of Doodle. His love that was hidden throughout the story, is finally revealed after Doodle dies in the storm. These changes that the narrator undergoes, taught the reader the many consequences that pride can have on someone, and how it can be certainly evil, depending on the circumstances. To recap, C.S.
When he took Doodle to Horsehead Landing before the first day of school he fills shame of failure but he doesn't stop trying even when he knows it's fatal. (p.416) This is one of the reasons of how the brother causes Doodles death because he made him work to hard and by having little concern for Doodle and more about his pride from what he
Victor tries to prove himself as a good moral character in the relationship between his creation and himself. However, this proved horrific because, as a parent, Victor implied his “child” is a wretch which no parent should do, despite their flaws. This can be shown after Victor breathes life into his creature and the text states, “...His jaws opened and he muttered.. one hand was stretched out, seemingly to detain me, but I escaped and rushed downstairs” (Shelly 58). In darkness of Victor’s actions against his creation, Victor immediately had
The simile, ’spooky as hell’, has a mysterious and frightening tone. No one truly knows what hell is like but its negative connotations provide a vivid image of how frightening Perry can be. In the novel In Cold Blood it's described that Perry had a strong relationship with his father, but as Perry got older it worsened. The simile, "I loved my father but there were times when this love and affection I had for him drained from my heart like wasted water", "like wasted water" can represent that Perry did love his father but once Perry grew older he realized that he didn't love him anymore, and that his affection towards his father was wasted as it led to no positive outcome. 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.
One example of this in the story is that, “They did not know that I did it form myself; that pride, whose slave I was, spoke to me louder than all their voices, and that Doodle walked only because I was ashamed of having a crippled brother” (Hurst, 355). This shows how the narrator was selfish, and how when he ran from Doodle in the rainstorm, it was his spite that was showing through, which went hand-in-hand with his pride. Another example is, “When Doodle was five years old, I was embarrassed at having a brother of that age who couldn’t walk, so I set out to teach him” (Hurst, 353). This shows the narrator only cares about himself, and doesn’t really care about Doodle walking; he cares about having a brother who can walk, because he is embarrassed about having a brother who can’t. Also, he only wants Doodle to walk so that the narrator doesn’t have to take Doodle around everywhere.
Early in the book Joe become weak from torture and looses his will to escape. After watching another prisoners escape, he begins to feel almost guilty that he didn’t go with him. “Joe thought about that a lot, wondered if he was loosing it: the daring and determination, even the physical ability, to escape—the will and guile to gauge the odds, then put it to the touch (Taylor 114). At this point I feel that Joe made a pact to himself to continue trying to escape until he physically cannot. Joe’s unit was instructed to work together to escape, and continue attempting until they cannot, and I feel that Joe took this to heart.
During the 1840s, superstitions were immensely prevalent due to the fact that the majority commoners did not fathom the evils of this word. Instead of accepting misfortunes for what they were worth, the frontiersmen attempted to fabricate a ridiculous reason for why the event took place. An example: Because Bob was growing rapidly and had serious proprioception issues, he ran into a wall and broke his nose. Yet, before he busted his face, Bob auscultated a frog croak. Subsequent to the accident, bob recalled the croak.
Huckleberry dreaded and, or, hated by mothers in the village.he misleads the boys in the village,such as in the chapter that i’m reading he and Tom are trying to steal treasure from engine joe.he is the foolish and blithe one as the story goes on. Last but not least Tom Sawyer, who once was blithe but now is starting to care for others. Tom is not as careless and foolish as he was in early chapters of the book,he is maturing as i get further into the the book.

Jerry was sadly one of the three taken. Taking a boy and releasing someone who is of more threat to them is very unreasonable. Tim was very saddened and was angered at the British for it as he thought the British were people he could support at the time. He had lots of fun with Jerry fishing and climbing trees, but he expected to be friends with him for longer. Thinking that the war couldn’t also kill children, Tim decided to go against war, being
He wants to help everyone as his friends are being attacked such as Hagrid for false being accused of opening the chamber before, Hermione as she was petrified. When Ron and Harry end up in the amber, he is not expecting to have to confront Voldemort but this is what he is tasked to do. Not by anybody, but by himself as he wants to protect his friends and save Ginny. “The adventure ends here boys”(Chamber 305) this is a quote that Lockhart says to Harry and Ron as he tries to erase their memories. This is an ironic statement as he wants to end their adventure, but ends up ending his own as he lose his memories think of what would have happened if this was effective and Harry lost his memories, the rest of the journey that he is destined to take part in would have gone up in smoke In Ocean Sea, there are several night journeys going on with a lot of different characters such as Elisewin, Adams, and Bartleboom to name a few.
