McCarthy might have chosen a cold earth to make their trials seem more worse because the man and boy had to look for both food and supplies to keep them safe and warm. When the boy had a fever, it was almost unbearable to read because the man had to unwrap him from his blankets so that his fever would go down. McCarthy’s description of the harsh climate allows readers to picture the setting and how it affected the boy and man’s
He then created his own troops and started hunting for animals. As an experienced boy scout, he managed to kill a boar and his troop celebrated together. As he has developed the feeling of rage, he did not allow any of the boy who was on Ralph side to taste the food. He also started to do bad things to Ralph and his friend by provoking them. If only he did not feel angry at the very first place, he will never develop the feeling of rage and they can survive together without causing harms to one another.
Napoleon who was in control in Animal farm is similar to Joseph Stalin. One similarity between Napoleon and Stalin is they would eliminate anyone who would disagree with them or rebel against their rules. In the book Animal Farm Napoleon gets rid of Snowball because they didn't agree on what to do for the farm and he was worried all the animals would side with Snowballs ideas not Napoleons. In the book it states, “They dashed straight for Snowball, who only sprang from his place just in time to escape their snapping jaws,” (Orwell 53). This shows that napoleon felt threatened by Snowball and was worried he would take over the farm so he used his dogs to try to kill Snowball so Napoleon could have no choice but to rule the farm.
Embarrassment was the one element which motivated the narrator to faithful in Doodle. The use of indirect characterization is clearly visible through the show of pride from the narrator to Doodle.

For Example, one of Gene’s weaknesses is that he is constantly thinking everyone is out to get him, so he does things that he will later regret, “I took a step toward him, and then my knees bent and I jounced the limb” (60). This quote shows that Gene will do things because of jealousy, frustration, or regret. This also shows Gene’s weakness because before this Finny told Gene that he should study instead of go to the tree yet Gene decided to go to the tree and kept in mind that Finny was out to get him. Another example of Gene’s weaknesses is that he never says what he wants to say, so when Finny asked Gene if he would go with Finny to the beach for the night, Gene wanted to say no so bad and yet he says, “‘All right’, I said” (46). This shows that Gene’s subconscious will take over and say things that he thinks that other people will want to hear.
Lennie knew that his repetitive tendency to get in trouble took a toll on George, and Steinbeck does include details in the novel showing that Lennie was aware of George’s frustrations. For example, when Lennie runs away to hide in the forest right before the scene where George kills him, Lennie imagines a gigantic rabbit criticizing him, “ ‘Well he[George]’s sick of you,’ said the rabbit. ‘ He’s gonna beat the hell outta you an’ then go away an’ leave you.’...’the rabbit repeated softly over and over, ‘He gonna leave you...He gonna leave ya all alone.’ ”(Steinbeck 102) Since this rabbit is part of Lennie’s imagination, the rabbit represents his subconscious thought, showing that he had dwelled upon the idea of George leaving him quite a bit. He always said he could run away and not be a burden upon George, but since George only ever helped Lennie, Lennie struggled to grasp a reality of George not being at his side. Likewise, when George finds Lennie in the woods before he kills him, Lennie expects George to yell at him and be angry about him killing Curley’s wife, “Lennie looked eagerly at him.
During the journey, he time and time again falls prey to selfish human desires, such as greed and pride, leading to further hardships. Although Odysseus’s story is a common archetype, he fails to meet the qualities of a hero compared to Narayanan Krishnan, a modern hero. Odysseus often was not satisfied with what he had already received and pushed for more. Such a case was seen when he visited the cyclops’s island. After having gone in the cave and finding the cyclops’s abode, he was interested in its inhabitants despite his men suggesting to simply take the sheep and cheese back to the boat and leave.
As the time passes the two characters are drifting apart emotionally which is evident in this passage because as Perry is being bothered by this action, Dick is looking through his binoculars scanning the mountains. The euphemism in the sentence is the when Perry had said “ I think there might be something wrong with us”. To have just murdered a family in their own home and say that there might be something wrong with you is sugarcoating it. Perry is so sensitive to this whole thing that he is trying to make those events as small as possible.
Simon, being one of the wiset boys, said, “Maybe there is a beast...maybe it’s only us…” (Chapter 5, page 80). Some boys believe that there is a wild beast roaming about and others think that it is nonsense. The boys are beginning to split up and divide themselves over the thought of a silly creature when in reality, they should be packing together. A dead parachutist lands on the island, stuck in the rocks and trees and the boys mistake it for the beast. The boys have officially decided that continuing hunting on the island is better than trying to get off the island which makes Ralph very angry.
