2. Choose a complex and important character in a novel or a play of recognized literary merit who might--on the basis of the character's actions alone--be considered evil or immoral. In a well-organized essay, explain both how and why the full presentation of the character in the work makes us react more sympathetically than we otherwise might. Avoid plot summary.
“Really, I think he was just plain crazy,” I do agree with Callarman because I think Chris was a little crazy for doing these actions. He was a very courageous for doing this because not many people would take a random trip to the wilderness because people would rather be in
2. The author W. W. Jacobs sets the mood of the story through setting and atmosphere to create a horror/mysterious vibe to the reader.

McCandless was bright and ignorant at the same time, I believe he had no business going into Alaska. Even though I don’t think McCandless was so smart, I admire his courage, a lot of people feel like they are missing something, and they do nothing about it and eventually fall into depression. McCandless, on the other hand, went out to look for what he thought he was missing, his plans didn’t go so well, but he at least tried to do something about it. McCandless’ legacy lives today, some people look up to him, many
The longer the boys stay on this island the more savage they will become and another person is going to die. This savagery assists the deterioration of their civilization. Ralph, who is considered to be the protagonist of the story, considers the boys savages for their inabilities – inabilities to keep order, to build a fire, to have meetings. He focuses on what they are not able to do because it is easier than looking at what they have proven themselves capable of.
Man 's Versus Dog 's Ability to Survive in ' ' To Build a Fire ' ' A short story ' ' To Build a Fire ' ' Jack Landon utilizes how smart a human is and how much knowledge a man has, but no matter what, the mistakes can always happen and cost us a life, especially when not prepared enough and not thinking about final consequences.
When the fire goes out, it signifies the boys losing their link to civilization and represents when their savage behavior begins to take over. In chapter four, Jack and his hunter “ ‘let the fire go out’ ”, causing them to miss the fact that “there was a ship”
They also show the negative and, typically unexpected, effects of perception. The fact that society and family plays the key factor in both short stories shows us how both can help you understand the things that society has defined as wrong.

He didn’t respect the fact that nature is stronger than any man. He went outside in below freezing weather and thought he could make it, but he couldn 't. He treated the land like it was something that could change to meet his needs. Nature will not stop or slow down because a man wants to go on an adventure. If he had any respect for nature than he would have stayed where he was especially since the author never describes why he leaves in the first place.
For example Hale just coming into the story said if he does not find any witches that they will have to agree with his decision. That shows that he is fair and he will not have any past grudges interrupt his work. In the opposite direction though the negative outweighed the positive with many other negative characters. Putnam was also another negative character he wanted Giles corey dead just because of a land dispute. Abigail the most flat out negative, Danforth was a lawful negative, and Parris was a social negative meaning he did not get along with others and liked to do his own thing.
Maybe if he would have been less self-centered and a little more humble to let other people help him to prepare better for his journey, he could still be alive, but unfortunately instead of thinking rationally he let his arrogance cloud his judgments and in April 1992 he walked into the Alaskan forest not prepared for what was waiting ahead of
The Jungle The success or failure of an author is usually determined by their ability to connect to their audience. One prominent author during the late 19th and early 20th century was Upton Sinclair who wrote on of the most successful books of it's time; The Jungle. It is placed in Chicago during the late 19th century during the Industrial Revolution. The story follows Jurgis Rudkus and his family who are Lithuanian immigrants who come to America to work in Chicago. There they face enormous difficulties: harsh and dangerous working conditions, poverty and starvation, unjust businessmen who take their money, and corrupt politicians who create laws that allow all of this to happen.
The society unconsciously judge people who are different from the majority. This judgement includes the way people look, speak, make decisions and much more. In a memoir, society’s attitudes towards certain topics could be determined from the stories crafted in the book. Greg Sestero, one of the authors of The Disaster Artist, tells various stories about his relationship with Tommy Wiseau and the stories behind the making of the infamous movie The Room, in which both of them took part. Knowing that some of the audience of the book are the cult fans of The Room, the authors made a rhetorical choice to engage them with the story.
