Reverend Parris is very greedy and repeatedly demonstrates selfish behavior throughout the play. Parris thinks only to protect his good reputation and keep his position as minister in the town of Salem. In the beginning of the play, Parris’s daughter, Betty, was sick in her bed; instead of being worried about his daughter, Parris’s main concern was what people would think about the chance of witchcraft in his house. At the end of the play, Parris expresses his selfishness for his name again when he asks Danforth to postpone the hangings; for the night before he found a dagger in his front door and is afraid that if honorable citizens like John Proctor and Rebecca Nurse are hanged, the town citizens will rebel against him.

In this excerpt of the short story, a biblical allusion is evident. The allusion to the forbidden fruit, the apple, was used when the father threw an apple at Gregor making the reader and Gregor realize that physical action could be done to him; it is now apparent that the family, or at least the dad, wants to get rid of him. It breaks the humorous tone of the piece, with the fantasy idea of being turned into a bug, into a more serious one with the realistic prospect of Gregor being wounded or killed. Throughout the piece, Gregor’s father has always expressed contempt towards Gregor because of Gregor’s “unhappy and hateful” state but never directly took action until now (Kafka 65). The way how this scene breaks the seemingly imaginative piece
All through their short marriage, Heathcliff rebuffs Isabella set up of Edgar, who he accepts has caused Catherine's diseases. His fundamental drive is his desire for Catherine and his aching for vindication. His pitiless treatment of Isabella drove her to inevitably abandon him and go to London, where she brought forth his child, Linton, and kicks the bucket. At the season of his introduction to the world, Heathcliff had no enthusiasm for recovering his child until twelve years after the fact.

Within a society with very strong puritan ideals, the Devil is renowned for his cruel reputation. His reputation is often correlated with trauma, death and confusion and his name summons immediate fear among the townsfolk. As the Putnams conclude that there are harmful spirits among their children, Mrs. Putnam also proclaims how she “ha[s] laid seven babies unbaptized in… this year, my Ruth... shrivels like a sucking mouth were pullin’ on her life too”(15). Ultimately, the Devil’s power is manufactured by the residents of Salem, based on fear from unexplainable incidents. For Mrs. Putnam, having each of her seven babies passing away provokes her to accuse the Devil of being responsible.
Dubose, the cranky and socially impaired lady next door to the Finches, for being rude to his family in revenge. “He did not begin to calm down until he had cut the tops off every camellia bush Mrs. Dubose owned until the ground was littered with green buds and leaves.”(137). Jem is the one suffering when Atticus finds out and forces him to make up for it by reading to Mrs. Dubose every afternoon after school and Saturdays for two hours. In this passage, Lee uses symbolism to show how Mrs. Dubose’s flowers (camellias) represent racism, and that you can't get rid of it that easily. Even though Jem cuts the top off of all her camellias, the issue is not yet resolved because the flowers are rooted deeper than that.

A devil, accordingly, did for her many services.Her master blamed her for not carrying out the ashes, and a devil afterwards would clear the hearth of ashes for her. Her master sending her to drive out the hogs that sometimes broke into their field, a devil would scare the hogs away and make her laughed to see how it feared them. She confessed that she had murdered a child and committed uncleanness both with men and with devils. In the time of her imprisonment, the famous Mr. Smith was at great pains to promote her conversion from the devil to God, and she was, by the best observers, judged very penitent both before her execution and after it, and she went out of the world with comfortable hopes of mercy from God through the merit of our Savior. Being asked what she built her hopes upon, she answered, "Upon these words: 'Come unto me, all ye that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest, ' and these: 'There is a fountain set open for sin and uncleanness '.

Perry Smith grew up in a malformed family in which his mother had “‘soured her soul’, honed her tongue to the wickedest point” and his father cruelty left them and later took out of his anger on Perry.

When Perry described his helplessness after walk: “the lodge was dark, and all the doors were locked.
