Although the chapter mainly focuses on Solomon Northup’s journey to Washington and kidnapping, Solomon’s actions and thoughts reveal a lot about him. An example is how the chapter conveys how innocent and optimistic he is and how he tries to see the best in people. Despite only seeing one performance from Merrill Brown to a scattered crowd, and never seeing the circus, Solomon still believes Brown and Hamilton to be who they say they are. His desire to find “present employment until the busy season should arrive” also shows his work ethic and what a hard worker he is. In addition, throughout the chapter, Solomon exhibits behaviour that reveals how observant he is.

Prometheus comes to understand that the reason he has felt no regret for his actions, is because they are what makes him an individual. This meaning that throughout his life he has been degraded because of how he would wonder and constantly ask questions, but this has made him a person with views and genuine curiosity on how the world works. These are all characteristics of a single person because not all people have the same views on everything. Surprisingly, in Prometheus’ society no one is considered an individual and
A rebellion is highly unexpected due to the unwavering trust the citizens place in their government. Prometheus’ escape from prison with little effort proves the leaders’ confidence that no one would defy the law (66-67). Much like the antagonist of The Fountainhead explains, man’s morals allow him to be easily manipulated. His desire for justice and a choice, blind him so that he would sacrifice anything to achieve even an illusion of those concepts. Anthem’s ability to relate to several experiences and universal situations, make
In a more fictional context, Harry Potter’s parents were killed when he was a very young age. He struggled for years to achieve his full potential as a child, and it was only through the help of his friends Hermione, and Ron that he was able to fulfill his great potential and defeat Voldemort. On the opposite side of the spectrum, there are plenty of stories of people like Jonathan, who have so much potential but see it go to waste because of friends who don’t push him to aspire for more. Athletes are especially culpable in this respect, for example Johnny Manziel, a promising young quarterback, has basically destroyed his career because his friends let him drink and have fun as opposed to making sure he focuses on his game.

This makes Equality 7-2521’s need to be an individual seem all the more drastic, no matter how innocent it may seem to readers. Equality’s need to be his own person and motivation to follow his childhood dream of being a
At the end of the novella, Equality was brasher and started using the word “I” in his monologues about how everything was going to change because of the amazing thing that he discovered and did all by himself. That was wrong of Equality to do because his friends helped him along the way in his journey and did not quit on him even though they could have been killed. His friends really helped and Equality was not as sincere and grateful for them as they were for him. There was definitely a huge shift in his character traits in the last two chapters of the
