Duddy was always being looked down on for these things, which may have made him work harder and want to do better.

Though the landlord interacts with several tenants, Armando- a good man who is often late with his rent, seems to be the focus of this story.
Odyssey Argumentative Essay Odysseus is an arrogant egotistical warrior who hardly ever takes the blame for his own actions. Since he does not take responsibility it shows his weaknesses that could be used against him if this were a war. Odysseus’s weaknesses are shown equally in the literature and the movie.
