He accused an innocent man of something he didn’t do just to cover up the bruises on her body from Bob Ewell beating her up. He attempted to kill two innocent children because they had defended someone whom was innocent in court. Bob Ewell doesn’t have a good reputation in the town with Atticus telling his children, ‘the Ewells had been the disgrace of the Maycomb for three generations. None of them had done an honest day’s work in his recollection.” Bob Ewell died at the end by landing on a knife, but people know Boo Radley was the one who killed him. He was found lying under a tree.
Obierika did not come along to see the boy killed, even though everyone expected him to, as was the custom. He did not want to see any innocent blood spilled, even though the Igbo often went to war for small reasons and mutilated dead children they believed to be mischievous spirits. Obierika also lay at night, thinking about his cultural ways and why they were that way. He thought about children being buried in the forest and men being banished for things beyond their control. All this right after he had run his own best friend out of town and
His uncle was one of the most influential and supportive people in his life and he helped Salva throughout his journey. At one point, he was reunited with his uncle who had left to fight in the war he felt safe and he depended on his uncle for anything. This shows that his uncle was very caring, helpful and encouraging. In the book it says “ Salva shook his head, unable to imagine what life would be like in the camp without Uncle.”(?). In another instance, we find out that his best friend Marial was killed by a lion and that he was greatly affected by the death of his friend but through this, his uncle was there to comfort him and protect him.
The victim then said, “No voice there cried ‘stay’ for me in the empty square” (poem). The hangman said he only had the chance to keep murdering people because nobody stood up and said something about it. It is ironic that the victim said nobody cried for me because when other people were getting hanged he didn’t say anything either. This leads to the bystander effect because the people of the town did not want to say anything since maybe someone else could have said
People with depression are often at risk of attempting suicide. We are shown the true extent of his depression during his soliloquies, his first soliloquy is in Act 1, Scene 2: “O! that this too too solid flesh would melt, Thaw and resolve itself into a dew! Or that the Everlasting had not fix’d His canon ‘gainst self-slaughter!” Here he states he wishes his flesh would melt off and he could die. This scene also conveys his fear of god and the afterlife, the only reason he doesn 't is that god might punish him for it.
The lack of description in his death is Hugo proving his worthlessness. He did not deserve a grand death such as Enjalras and Courfeyrac who, in the movie, died in a glorious standoff, waving the rebel flag. The day after the battle, the ladies of the streets reflect on how useless the fight was, and what a pity it was that so many men gave their lives, because even after the battle, "Nothing changes nothing ever will" (Turning). If grown men could not make a difference in their society, how could a young boy stand up fearlessly against an entire army? His death was manipulated to add depth to the story; to give the
He could not go after Danglars family because he was not as close to his family as he was with his money. Dantes knew that Danglars wife was having an affair and so did Danglars; therefore, his wife living him did not hurt him as much as him losing all of his money and being left with nothing. Danglars was able to escape before everyone found out that he had nothing left. However, in the movie Dantes came after Danglars by using violence. Dantes fights Danglars with his sword and then he ends up hanging him, but he does not let him die.
Though there is no detailed account of how Paul’s last few minutes played out, his character shows he would have accepted his fate. Though it may have been less painful to quit fighting, Paul knew that if he died fighting, his family would be proud of him. This turned out to be true; his broken right hand was a source of comfort to Father Maclean after his death. “He had to derive what comfort he could from the faith that his son had died fighting,” (Maclean 112). Paul knew his parents secretly wished he wouldn’t gamble and drink, and he wanted his parents to be proud of him, which likely influenced his actions in his last minutes.
Examples of this maturation are shown when he explains, "It was good that God kept the truths of life from the young as they were starting out or else they’d have no heart to start at all" (284). Our view of the story changes as well when we notice that Grady 's life of adventure and experiences turns into tragedy and misfortune. His life is more about loss than accomplishment to the point where his life is an ultimate failure. By the conclusion of this story Grady has undergone a complete change. First person point of view used by McCarthy has ended up being a very successful way of telling the story.
They can be considered jokes, as they poke fun at what the author view’s as wrong with the original piece of work or situation. Parodies have been extremely prominent throughout all eras of literature and examples have been present in not only novels, but poems, movies, television shows, songs, and many other forms of literature as well. A man by the name of Jonathan Swift is widely known as the greatest satirist of all time (Andrzejewski).
