In the story, “The Scarlet Ibis” author James Hurst uses indirect characterization through the thoughts and feeling of the protagonist towards his little brother Doodle to establish a meaningful theme. The theme is that being ashamed of those close to you often makes you lose sight of what that person may be going through, leading to regret in the future. In the beginning of the story, the protagonist talks about how his baby brother’s crawling made him resemble a doodle bug. This is why he calls his brother Doodle. “Renaming my brother was perhaps the kindest thing I ever did for him, because nobody expects much from someone named Doodle,” (3) the protagonist proceeds to explain.
In James Hurst’s heartbreaking story The Scarlet Ibis, young Brother and Doodle find themselves bound by love. Hoping for companionship from Doodle, he faces disappointment as he observes his baby brother’s one capability: lying in bed. Unfortunately, he plans to murder Doodle by “smothering him with a pillow” until the day he notices Doodle lock eyes with him and smile. On this occasion, Brother shouts with joy, “Mama, he smiled. He's all there!
The amount of integrity can dictate someone’s reputation. Boo Radley revealed his kindness in an unpredicted manner. Scout and Jem were being attacked by Bob Ewell, Mayella’s father, and Boo ended up killing Bob. Boo doesn’t know the outcome of killing Bob but, however, he did the virtuous feat. In addition, Boo hasn’t had contact with anybody for many years, so, for him to save the kids must have taken a lot of courage.
In the short story, “The Scarlet Ibis” written by James Hurst, creates a story about a boy named Doodle who was born with disabilities and his brother makes plans to kill him. In paragraph 5 on the first page of the story, Hurst writes, “It was bad enough having an invalid brother, but having one who possibly was not all there was unbearable, so I began to make plans to kill him by smothering him with a pillow.” This clearly makes readers think that the narrator wants him dead, and the narrator isn’t grateful for what kind of brother he has. This clearly brings up that it was the narrator 's fault that Doodle died. He left Doodle out in the storm on purpose and ran away, the narrator had plans to kill him earlier on in the story, and everyone expected Doodle to die right when he was born.
“‘It ain’t right Atticus.’ said Jem. ‘No son, it’s not right.’” This is an excerpt from the popular story, To Kill A Mockingbird. During this dialogue, Jem’s tears are streaming down his red, angry face as his father Atticus is wearily acknowledging the unjust outcome of the trial of Tom Robinson to his son. This is an excellent example of the loss of innocence in the novel, where Jem is faced with the harsh reality that innocent, good people can be victims of vicious racism.
In the novel, To Kill a MockingBird, Harper Lee illustrates the harsh treatment receive from the townspeople’s when he is order to defend Tom Robinson. When talking to his brother, Jack, Atticus explains that he hopes that his children will not catch Maycomb’s usual disease of racism and prejudice, he hopes his children will come to him. “I just hope that Jem and Scout come to me for their answers, instead of listening to the town.” When Scout asked Atticus if he was really a n***** lover, Atticus responded “I certainly am. I do my best to love everybody...

Earlier in the short story, the child asks the man how well he knows the aunt so she can see what she is capable of getting away with. When the man says he doesn 't the child takes full advantage of his vulnerability and goes all out with deception. This author created a build up which almost convinced the reader that the men were dead. In fact it was rather comedic at the end when the man takes off and then the daughter blames it all on the dog. Comedy is definitely one way to draw the attention of someone.

The quote I think is strong is 'Life for me isn't no crystal stair. So boy don't you turn back now.' This quote is strong to me by the mother telling the son to not turn back and keep moving forward. It's personal to me. I know that the mother was the author by the actual title 'Mother to Son.'
The Catch I like this poem because I could picture it really well. I watch football with my family and my brother plays football so this I can picture seeing. Like I said, the poem has really good imagery to express how the football player caught the ball and made a touchdown. I also like the similes in this poem, like "We switched places like it was a sideways game of leapfrog". The similes in the poem add more figurative language which makes the poem interesting.
