David is not the protagonist in this novel because he lacks wisdom and heroic traits that a true protagonist would have. David has a lack of wisdom and making the right choices and the right time, but despite David being only 10 years old, he hasn’t faced many similar problems before. David is smart for his age, but has an uncommon trait of being telepathic and left handed. The only heroic actions David's performs throughout the novel are influenced by other people. When David stayed overnight at Sophie’s, it was Sophie’s mom’s influence that gave David enough courage to disobey his father.
Consequently, his yearning for books causes him to rebel against the legislation of his society.

Grant feels as if he shouldn’t feel obligated or pressured to help bring justice to Jefferson. This is because he believes that Jefferson got himself into that situation. Having been pushed to help bring justice for Jefferson, Grant says, “ And I teach the white folks around here, tell me to teach reading, writing, and ‘rithmetic. They never told me how to keep a black boy out of a liquor store” ( Gaines 13). In Grant’s view, this instance is none of his business.
The Big Brother is the most important figure of the book and this dystopia. He’s not a character, he’s an idea that tells everyone there’s no such thing as free will. So he is an imaginary being in an imaginary world. Orwell’s utopia is more of a warning message as there weren’t many surveillance cameras around (they were usually used in military bases) when it was written. I believe he wanted to show how these technologies can be abused and hurt everything that makes us human.
Heroes, people say don't be them, because it risks your life and it is not worth it, you don’t get paid, you don’t get powers, you're just you by the end of the day and do something some people call dumb. But being a hero is not just Rafael at a fair to become one, to be one is to do what’s right even when everyone is not. Do it for the better of life, not for glory, but for anything that drives you to keep going. All heroes are different, but also the heroes come from the same roots about how they do what they do. We are going to dig deep into that reason why soon.

Throughout the book, he does not want to make any real grown-up decisions or set any goals for himself. He shows a lack of ambition and motivation and therefore is a constant failure at school. He refuses to associate himself with mature ways of living, and this is all because Holden his hanging onto the picture-perfect image he has of his childhood where he could be careless and free.

Not no mention that Okonkwo doesn't care about anybody but himself and he has no empathy and regard for others okonkwo is not a tragic hero based on either Hercules standards or Aristotle's; even though all his life we was terrified to not be thought at one. Now there might be others to disagree but they would have to read Things Fall Apart by Chinua Achebe
To begin with, Spartans lacked advanced education. In document D it states, “The spartans learned to read and write for purely practical reasons: but all other forms of education they banned.” [The Spartans] thought education was a waste of time and they should be training instead. They also didn’t allow them to go abroad. Which limited their education even more because they couldn’t learn from other people. They were not allowed to attend either comedy or tragedy plays.
People don’t want perfection, they want to be content with life. But ignoring the real troubles does not mean that society is content, it means society is oblivious. By society not taking action towards the problems in the world, that is no better than the people in the book Fahrenheit 451. Ray Bradbury wrote a cautionary tale putting his prediction of the future into the book Fahrenheit 451. His prediction was that people would become so absorbed to their “barber shop families” and “seashell radios” (Bradbury) that they have no concept of world problems.
The court system had to decide if Pap should have custody of Huck again or not. The books show readers that the court system presented in the book really did not care whether the parent (in this case Pap) was working to support that child or the role they play in the child’s life. For example, Pap was alcoholic, he had never been fatherly to Huck as he grew up, he didn’t have a job, and he didn’t even live with Huck. The judge really did not care about Huck’s safety at all when he granted full custody to Pap. The judge chose to do this just because he was Huck’s biological dad.
The photo of MLK in the literature book on page 620 does not demonstrate his significance. It does not show his significance because it does not show all the quotes on the side from his speech. They did not go to the place he ruled even when they love him they did not go to where he helped most. His face is not clear to see in the photo, and the noble expression on his face is the main point of the monument. That is the reason why MLK is not being demonstrated of his significance.
