Please don’t. Please, Abner.” (Faulkner 267), she is trying to stop him from doing soothing he may regret later. There are so many characters in this short story, so to this day it confuses me to why he just stuck to one person to tell this when we most likely could have gotten so much more out if other characters told this. So, point of view is very important and makes us the readers not get the whole picture, but that’s what Faulkner intended to
“We wished to know… about all the things” (23). He has asked so many questions- unlike the others- which the teachers forbade it. According to the council, curiosity is selfish- since it cannot give rest and once answered, more questions come. The Council does not like curiosity; it could lead to the revelation of the Unspeakable Times. Equalitys intelligence was also one of the reasons why he was given the job he did.
When he misses his final exam, his parents talk the school into letting him pass. This is an example as to how excessive his parents are about Crabbe following their dreams. If he did follow everything his parents wanted him to do, he would become a non-independent thinker. Crabbe was becoming depressed for he was not enjoying life. Crabbe was depressed because when his parents planed out his whole life, he did not want to do those things and wanted to portray that he is independent.
Individuality allows every person to be themselves and be different from each other. However, In Ayn Rand’s novella Anthem, Rand describes a society where the people were not allowed to openly be themselves, or else they would be punished for being different. The main character, Equality, notices he is different slowly throughout the novella, but kept continuing to be like everyone else for awhile. These rules exist in this society to strip human individuality in order to achieve total equality. It is a struggle for people not to be able to think freely.
I think about things I said or did years ago, about how ‘stupid’ I was,/ Anxiety makes me a difficult person to be friends with” (Ann). Grendel needed a friend to keep him alive, he was always thinking about what his people did years ago when that’s irrelevant to him now. To overcome anxiety, you need companionship, but you also need to learn to love yourself so you can create a more confident, happy, and healthy lifestyle for
Due to the pleading of his crew, this shows that Odysseus is inconsiderate because they could have easily died and left their families behind. This also shows that he is inconsiderate because if someone is a good leader, they usually listen to other inputs and act according to that, but Odysseus was headstrong and wanted to continue the taunting. The next time that Odysseus shows that he is inconsiderate is their stay at Circe’s land. The crew members have families at home which they want to see once again, but Odysseus is reluctant to
Huck Finn is still relevant today in the fact that it has a very important life lesson that everyone should know. On his adventure Huck learned not to follow the rest of society and to do what he thought was right. When Huck decided not to turn Jim in he was so torn about what to do. Of course the answer is obvious for most of us that no he should not turn Jim in however, Huck was raised in a society that pressured him to thinking that he should turn him in. Even while having been raised in this type of racist environment Huck realized he didn’t care what the “sivilized” people thought and he wanted to help Jim.
From society being scared of it, how it was uncharted because of that, and also how someone like Equality 7-2521 thrived and became a different and stronger person from being alone in nature. The type of society that he (Equality 7-2521) lives in is very strict. He couldn’t be who he wanted to be or do what he wanted to do, because if he did then he would get punished for it. I’m sure that when he got exiled from society he was probably scared, but at the same time was relieved or curious to what else was out there. He couldn’t do much in society.
He did not want it to come to this, though at this point in time he knew it had to be done. If it was going to be done it had to be him. He owed it to Lennie to have him do it.

Both have something to miss, about the old part of life. They could give up, but they didn’t, because they knew that all the things will be better or get in a good place in the end, but not for sure.

In the beginning of the chapter, two unknown characters are discussing Ender’s future. “He’s too malleable. Too willing to submerge himself in someone else’s will.” “Not if the other person is his enemy.” “So what do we do? Surround him with enemies all the time?” (Card, page 1) This is important because it foreshadows Ender’s future and the rest of the book. It shows that Ender is going to have a difficult life.
In this conversation between Bernard and Lenina, Bernard wants freedom to do what he wants, however, the world state does not allow this to happen. If the world state allowed the people freedom they wouldn’t be able to hide the truth from then. This demonstrates a problem with the brave new world and is a reoccurring problem with totalitarian states because people will never be as happy as they could be without freedom. This dissatisfaction is demonstrated by Helmholtz when he says,
He is also a suspicious character because reader are unknowing of his plans. For example, he informs the reader,”It occurred to me that they needed a guide, someone who could accompany them through the course of an average day” (Sedaris 721). The reader does not know if he is going to point out all the thing the Tomkey children don’t know or if he is going to stay quiet and let them figure it out by themselves. In summary, there can be different types of moods,
