Character Analysis: The character that I have chosen to analyze is Brother. At the beginning of the story, we are introduced to brother as a fun-loving kid who just wants a playmate. When his brother, Doodle, is born though he becomes selfish and ashamed of his brother. Brother is selfish when he says, “was embarrassed at having a brother of that age who couldn't walk, so I set out to teach him.” The only reason a Brother taught Doodle how to walk was for his own personal gain. Brother is ashamed of Doodle because of his disability and [Doodle] walked only because [Brother] was ashamed of having a crippled brother.
Doodle doesn't give up because he is shown desirement although he goes through occasional cruelty by his brother. Brothers only motivation is to make Doodle like other kids to avoid himself from self embarrassment of having a brother who is disabled and going through a battle of his own ego. Meanwhile the story continues brother is selfish, careless and prideful throughout the story. One trait brother showed is being careless. He is careless because he is constantly reminding doodle how he is disabled.
When tyson saved Percy during the dodgeball game against the evil cyclops Percy said “Tyson gave his life more than once to save Percy and many others.” P19 He is also insensitive. For example, Percy was embarrassed of being friends with Tyson in the beginning of the book. However, he still showed love towards Percy. Next, Tyson is very open-minded because he I believe that he has nothing to lose except his only friend Percy. For example, when he did not even think twice when he was asked to go on the dangerous adventure.
For Ponyboy and Johnny, when the Soc Bob dies, Dally couldn’t have helped them at all, which would have then changed the whole plot of the story. This showed us how a greaser supports another greaser, no matter how bad the circumstance. Also, when the church was about to fall Dally, saved Johnny at the last moment. Here, Dally represented the symbol of a hero. Later, in the paper the newspaper describes the three boys as juvenile delinquents who have now turned into heroes.
At the beginning he was this shy character that was afraid of his own shadow, but by the end of the book he is a brave kid who was willing to sacrifice his own life for a group of kids. He stood up to the Socs and killed one of them. He was willing to turn himself in to the police, and cares deeply for the rest of the gang. All of the characters in the book have realistic traits, but I feel as if they are a bit like character stereotypes and flat, there is the quiet one, the strong brother, the handsome brother, the scary head of the gang, the silly one, the forgettable friend, and the above average main character, with a depressing back-story. In conclusion, Jonny shows that people still love you no matter what happens, and you have a group that will accept you.
Doodle's brother was deeply embarrassed and humiliated at having a handicapped brother. Doodle's brother literally stated this fact when he proclaimed what a disappointment Doodle was to him when Doodle was just a baby. Doodle's brother's enormous embarrassment and disgust with his disabled younger brother was evident from the beginning, and only grew as they got older. You might be thinking the brother wasn't cruel to Doodle every second of every day. For that, you are correct.
There are countless stories that have sappy endings where the hero saves the day and everything goes well, but in James Hurst’s short story ‘The Scarlet Ibis’ the main character makes mistakes that costs his little brother his life. Doodle, the little brother, has many different facets of his personality similar to a real person. It is because of these many facets that we, the readers, could connect to him.The most notable personalities that Doodle has is his selflessness, dependence on others, and his creative imagination. Doodle is very selfless and he is willing to walk to the edge of the earth just to see his family happy. He could not walk at all because of his birth defects, but his brother slowly but surely taught him how to first stand up, and then walk.
If humanity were to return to the world, it would be through the “good guys” like the man and his son. Throughout the novel there are times where the father and son lose their faith in carrying the fire because it is not easy. An example of carrying the fire outside of The Road is in the mythological story of Prometheus. In this story from Mythology by
Hero can be anyone, just have a good heart and courage to save or help the people around you. The task doesn’t have to be extraordinary but it can just be small simple act of nobility of character. Beowulf fit the standards as a classic hero, one who is near perfect, preforms extraordinary task, also his honor is worth more than his life, and dies in an unusual meaningful manner. There characteristics usually conclude being prideful, courageous and having sense of justice. Beowulf shows all of these
However, heroism can take place in our everyday lives by simple brave actions. A hero has many noble qualities such as courage, humility, patience, being selfless and caring. They will put other people before themselves and make sure others are content. Heros are also intelligent and like to think ahead to plan on a good result. Although Victor very well fits the role of a tragic hero with a fatal flaw, he also fits the role of a hero.
