In the end, I ran.” (Hosseini 77). Amir obviously shook by seeing his best friend raped, did not know how to react in the situation. Therefore, his fight or flight instincts kicked in and he ran off still in a state of shock. Perhaps the reason he never told Hassan was that he felt guilty that he did not do anything for him but ran. Even then, he just acted even worse than before, not changing for the better but for the worse.
Lennie was constantly causing trouble because of his mental disabilities. He for example had to leave his previous job because he was being chased for causing extreme trouble. “´Her neck’s bust. Lennie coulda did that.´ George didn’t answer, but he nodded slowly. His hat was so far down on his forehead that his eyes were covered.
When Jeannette explains to Rex Walls what Erma did to Brian, he starts to shake and cover his ears and pretend like he couldn’t hear them. After Lori and Jeannette talk, Jeannette thinks, “You’d be weird, too, if Erma was your mom... it would explain a lot… Why he drank so much and why he got so angry.” Rex Walls tried to escape from Welch and its people for a better future, but in the end couldn’t escape from his problems because he focused too much on his past and never gave the future his complete attention. When the mines started to shut down, many people turned to alcohol and drugs to keep their minds off of their problems in life. Erma also turned to alcohol and drugs to forget her past, and abused Rex Walls both mentally, physically, and sexually, eventually leading Rex Walls down the same path with alcohol and drugs which made him lose all hope. Jeannette knows that both of her parents have no ambition to leave Welch for a better life, so she has to act independently to get out of Welch.
He was tired of the mind games he had to endure. Frederic was mistaken for someone he was not, and was very critical of how young soldiers minds only focused on their own glory.The internal conflict within Frederic to escape the war drove him to dive into the river and strip the stars from his uniform. This external conflict quote was an example of human versus human. The ambulance drivers found themselves in a situation where their vehicle was stuck in the mud and men refused to follow orders to push it out. Soldiers began to flee the area for fear of approaching enemy.
Countless times, Creon was implored to change his mind to preserve the safety of others. However, due to his uncompromising and egocentric nature, he repeatedly denied this aid, and therefore caused the tragedies of the deaths of his niece and his son. The events that occurred in the play Antigone accurately represent the characteristics of a tragic flaw and subsequent suffering that define a
Victor destroys the mate he is creating because he had lots of doubts and he felt tricked. I know this because one doubts he said about creating the mate was, "Had I a right, for my own benefit, to inflict this curse upon everlasting generations?" So he felt like it was a mistake or a regret. He also felt like it was a mistake because after all the doubts he thought of he later seen the creature and he promised that he wouldn 't follow him. The creature looked at him like he tricked Victor so he destroyed the creature because he of the creature creepy scary
The speech Macbeth gives about the death of his wife, shows the lack of humanity that gets shown throughout the play. Macbeth has become insensitive towards the tragic news that he has just received, all because of his thirst for power. He has separated the person he once was into the treacherous traitor that he is now. “Life is nothing more than an illusion,” is what Macbeth says, it shows that his ideology has been warped due to taking the future for granted. He has been told by the three witches, what going to happen, but not how, so he has become jaded about certain events that will transpire.
Okonkwo’s defiance results in him being alone in his venture for war against the British. He becomes extreme in his measures towards war and ostracizes himself from his people by telling them how feminine they are being by erring towards peace. Okonkwo 's fear of being feminine like his father causes him to become an extremist in his views. This fear and the extremes to which it carries Okonkwo cause him to lose respect and power amongst his people, ultimately leading to his demise. Okonkwo realizes he no longer has control over his people after he beheads a messenger in front of all of Umuofia.
After his accusations, Oedipus mocked Teiresias for his blindness, and told him to leave the palace as Oedipus had grown tired of him. Oedipus’s imperfect nature stopped him from learning the truth from Teiresias before it was too late, and lead to great loss at the end of the play. Throughout the story of Oedipus the King, the imperfectly noble nature of Oedipus is displayed for all to learn from. His temperamental and overzealous nature made him argumentative and combative when Teiresias tried to tell him the truth about the murder, causing Oedipus to accuse his good friend Creon of being a usurper. The consequence of Oedipus’s imperfect noble nature was his eventual blindness and exile from the place he loved and cared for the
At this part of the story Dave was trying to come tell him that his father had passed away in combat, but he was too afraid to hear him say the words that he didn 't let him and just beat Dave up. While reading the suspense of how badly the boys wanted to beat Dave up was a release of anger and fear, which is terrifying in the position of
However, Holden gets upset and starts talking poorly of him once he hears this, and later excuses himself with a lie he made up to leave, showing both his self-defence mechanism and his skepticism towards people he liked. Also, when Holden wakes up to Mr. Antolini patting him on the forehead in the middle of the night, he tells us of similar “perverty” stuff that happened to him multiple times as a child. Therefore, he clearly struggles to trust anyone he both meets and knows, which shows his insecurity and skepticism of others. Another instance of this is Holden’s relationship with D.B. Although Holden says that they were once close, he now considers D.B.
However, the irony of war to the soldiers is further displayed when Cross ends up becoming too obsessive over Martha when “carrying” his things, and barely even acknowledges the death of one of his soldiers in Ted Lavender. He then does not come back in touch with reality until the next morning when he realizes how idiotic he has become to love his illusion more than reality. As a result, he decides to burn the things he carries in an attempt to end his obsession, but it is evident that this is ultimately a continuing conflict he will have to battle throughout the book. In this passage, I noticed how prevalently longer sentences were incorporated within the text to indicate the plethora of things the soldiers carry in common. I also repeatedly found the phrases “they carried”, and “they would” within the text, which both indicate the homogeneity among the soldiers now that their previous identities have been stripped away.
The isolated Victor is different in several ways including his manner, and the way he goes about his education, which is more focused and ultimately more obsessive. He has no one to comfort him and this leads to the madness of creating the monster. Victor has had supportive people around him since birth; however now that he is at the university he has nobody to help keep him level headed. "Every night I was oppressed by a slow fever, and I became nervous to a most painful degree; the fall of a leaf startled me, and I shunned my fellow creatures as if I had been guilty of a crime" (35). The isolation being portrayed by Victor is now shifting from not only
