He is also nice, he gave Shmuel food because he saw how skinny he was. Bruno is also smart, he figured out how to get over the fence, and covered up the fact that he was seeing Shmuel. Bruno is also sheltered and naive, he has a maid, people cooking for him and doing things for him, he didn’t even know where Poland was. Throughout the story Bruno never understood what was happening on the other side of the fence. Gretel had to explain to him that the people were Jews, and his father told him that the people on the other side of the fence, weren’t people at all.

“A brown kid getting across: “he’s like me”, I tell my daughter and she stops her mouth. “He looks both ways and then leaps across the road where riches happen on a red tongue”(34-38). The metaphor used shows how unsatisfied the brown person, the daughter, and the father are in their life. This poem clearly depicts how some people in the world live in poor conditions and have unhappy lives. The poem doesn’t only show hatred and sadness in life in impoverishment, but it also shows how you can get out by perseverance like Gary Soto did in his personal life through literature and hard
2. The officers take interest in the young boy because they liked children. They also had brought bread for them, some soup and margarine.

He thinks about what Confucius said, “A superior man is modest in his speech, but exceeds in his actions.” Later that evening, he talks with his parents, but all they say is almost the same as what the Mr. Salter said, “’Actions speak louder than words.’ You
Furthermore, during slavery, slave masters deliberately forbade schooling for slaves in fear that if they were too educated, they would rebel. They were unable to read and write in English. Only 6.4% of slaves in the Caribbean were literate in English, thus creating a psychosocial difference amongst the population. As a result, slaves created their own methods of communicating with each other. Creole was a highly used form of pidgin English that was created amongst the new Afro-Caribbean society.
Alyosha is introduced to the reader with a title: the Baptist. He is a man who values religion over anything else, which is the reason why he was put into the labour camp. When Shukhov is given bread by their team-leader, Pavlo, Shukhov decides to hide a piece of the bread in his mattress, even though he knows he is not allowed to do so. While trying to hide the bread, Shukhov becomes nervous from the fear of being caught. It is then when Alyosha reads a verse from the Testament under his breath, probably wanting Shukhov to hear it.
Douglass belong to a well off family. The woman of the house thought him how to read and write some things.
