In Jeremy Visick there were a lot of characters, while reading there were some characters were not mentioned as much but still an important part of the story. If the author had not carefully planned out each teacher in the school it would have seemed like there was only one teacher in the school, “Now , Clemens, a voice boomed from within,and Matthew tremblingly entered” (115). This shows that Matthew had heard about the principal and was somewhat scared of him. The author had to think about this character and how it would act. Even for this small of a role.
The most inevitable thing in life is growing up, but not a lot of people know when it happens. When trying to pinpoint the exact moment when one person came of age, it is nearly impossible to do so. If a person can do this, then that person would seem confused or review it like an old test. In Rudolfo Anaya’s novel, Bless Me, Ultima, it shows how hard it can be to pinpoint that moment of coming of age. Anaya conveys this idea by having Tony experience very notable and relevant events as he grows up.

He understands that there will not be his best friend anymore, who could take care of his parents and Vitus himself. He realizes that it is the time to stand up for his family instead of the grandfather and take responsibilities like an adult, which once again demonstrates the psychological maturity of gifted children. Also he understands now that it is his responsibility now to continue developing his talents, just out of deference and immense gratitude for the happy childhood to his beloved grandfather.

“Not that Pilate or Reba felt the possessive love for him that his mother did, but they had accepted him without questions and with all the ease in the world. They took him seriously too. Askes him questions and thought all his responses to things were important enough to laugh at or quarrel with him about” (XX). Milkman finds comfort and starts to like being with people of lower classes. Being around Pilate is foreshadowing for his rebirth already indicated by their first encounter when Pilates offers him
They are not archetypes. No one is fully good or fully bad. Take Ian Goade: We first see him as a teacher, who takes his job seriously. We like him, because he seems like a good person. He teaches kids, he cares for them (“I helped the boy up from the ground and asked if he was hurting anywhere”) and he doesn’t seem arrogant (“Not because I’m a better teacher than my colleagues”).
at the end of July 1916 to see his parents, siblings and friends, most of whom were still farming or employed as labourers.

This sorrow may have only lightly touched William for Sarah had only been a baby when he left the farm as a young man. All other indications are that the rest of the time was a joyous reunion.

While this novel does have profanity and sexual references, it still deserves to be taught in high school because Holden shows how having a negative attitude towards life does not get a person far. In the beginning of the novel Holden tells the reader that "[Pencey] kick[s] [him] out [of their school]" (6) because he "was [failing] four subjects and not applying [himself]" (6). However, he does not just notify the reader, he notifies them in a way of forgetting to mention that he is no longer going to be attending Pencey.
