In Lord of the Flies by William Golding, he shows the most important people and aspects of a society. “And weep for the end of innocence and the darkness of man’s heart,... the books is supposed to show how the defect of society are directly traceable to the defects of the individual”(Golding, 215). The ethical nature of society does not depend on a group of people, but a single individual. When the last of those aspects are gone, people have the ability to turn into savages with not knowledge, spirit or innocence. The deaths in the books show how each quality in a person, no matter how small or irrelevant, keeps us steady and gives us the ethical groups to stand on, but more importantly, he shows what can happen when our leaders are gone and the ground gives
Dookie was then greeted by the Headless Rider. Dookie stood there motionless while his heart sunk and his feet turned cold. The Rider threw his chain at him knowing he had him in his hands.

“People need to learn that their actions do affect other people. So be careful what you say and do, it’s not always just about you!” In the book, Tangerine, by Edward Bloor, Erik made many choices including being the cause of Paul’s blindness, Mrs. Fisher told his new school about Paul’s IEP, and Paul asked about his blindness to his parents. The main choice that affected Paul was made by Erik. Erik and his old friend, Castor, chose to make Paul visually impaierd. “And I remembered Erik’s finger prying my eyelids open while Vincent Castor sprayed white paint into them” (Bloor 264).
Brutality can be defined as a state of acting or being compared to an animal or beast, consequently acting with little intelligence and a high altitude of violence. Animal imagery is seen throughout the book in a high manner, specifically with Lennie as George often scowls Lennie about behaving well. In the beginning of the book, Lennie is introduced firmly in the first pages as both men get close to a water stream. Lennie 's brain never seemed to function properly as having fun meant the world to Lennie, “Lennie dabbled his big paw in the water and wiggled his finger so the water arose" (3). The instincts of bear signify brutality and little intelligence as Steinbeck 's imagery about Lennie portray
Observing the love and affection between others only increases the effect his own solitude has on him. He is aware of his otherness and knows that he is “shut out from intercourse” (84) with the people he holds so dear. It can be argued that this is the point where the creature’s humanity is the strongest throughout the course of story. He has a basic understanding of human societies, he speaks and reads their language, shows compassion and, most importantly, seeks their company and friendship. In his knowledge that social belonging is the missing component to his own happiness, he confronts the people he secretly observed only to, once again, be met with fear and anger (94-95).
Even though one might do something that gets the other one angry, they eventually come to the understanding that they didn’t mean any harm. Right after Lennie ran away, George says, “Couldn’ we maybe bring him in an’ they’ll lock him up… He never done this to be mean (Steinbeck 97). At this point in the book, there is that much that George save Lennie. He is hoping that everyone will understand that Lennie didn't mean any harm. As they traveled together, George has noticed Lennie's issues.
So he kept quiet so he would not scare her with what happened when he went to go get his pants. On page 65 through 66 Jem starts to tell Scout what happened the night he went back. Jem told Scout how his jeans were folded and someone sewed them. It scared Jem because only Scout knew he was going back to get his jeans. He did not know who else would have
The quote that ended the book was, “If I were a younger man, I would write a history of human stupidity; and I would climb to the top of Mount McCabe and lie down on my back with my history for a pillow; and I would take from the ground some of the blue-white poison that makes statues of men; and I would make a statue of myself, lying on my back, grinning horribly, and thumbing my nose at You Know Who.” (127) then the book is over and it leaves you confused on all the opportunities that may occur next and the audience is then lost. i. Refutation: The story line actually has a very basic plot, and as for the ending the author made the decision to leave you wondering. The author is smart about his ending where he plays with characters emotions towards the book which is actually a respectable technique that he uses in order to create elevated anticipation for what is to
Later in the film, when Bernie begs Tom for his life after killing Casper, Tom’s hat is worn on the back of his head and depicted on the cusp of falling off, which is symbolic of Tom’s attempt to stray from his identity. Tom’s hat is off enough for his identity to be skewed and able to murder someone. The idea of a hat is also brought up when Tom tells Verna about the dream he had by explaining “No. It stayed a hat. And no I didn't chase it.
(Pg.1). After this quote and all other stories like it: after Tom experiences Mr. Rogers helping a disabled boy, after Mr. Rogers walks away from a filming set, after Mr. Rogers repeats the same routine daily, the author ends the scenes there offering no analysis or personal opinion. This lack of author’s opinion is fitting in making this piece of writing good because of the title and implied intent of the article. The title itself is not definitive and allows for the read to decide if the protagonist is a hero. It clearly lays out examples that show Mr. Rogers in the best light, however, the author refrains from asserting Mr. Rogers is a hero, ultimately allowing the reader more freedom and room for personal interpretation of the

The Epilogue of Parris After being voted from office, Parris had nowhere to go, but he would never let the citizens of Salem see his apprehension. He knew God had a purpose for him and obviously Salem was not where he was meant to bring forth God’s blessing. That is why he planned to travel to Boston and share God’s blessing with people who would respect him. However, after days of walking in the sweltering heat of Massachusetts in July, his usually well groomed face was now covered in scruff and his clothes had turned a strange off white color from excessive sweating. Though his appearance was different, Parris was still the pretentious man he had been in Salem.
