Furthermore, as an act of rebellion, while Andy played music through the prison’s speaker system, Red comments: “I tell you, those voices soared. Higher and farther than anybody in a gray place dares to dream. It was like some beautiful bird flapped into our drab little cage and made these walls dissolve away...and for the briefest of moments -- every last man at Shawshank felt free.” (277).

They brag about their many talents and accomplishments, leaving the person on the other end of the conversation feeling that worn out from listening to the same thing over and over again. Fortunately, there are people who do not excessively brag about their latest achievements. They simply know what they have done, and they leave it at that. Beowulf was most like the latter. In Beowulf, there was no evidence spotted that seemed to imply that Beowulf went around boasting about the monsters that he had killed and replaying the events over and over again until people had begun to wish that he had not scored a victory over the monsters.

D.C.H dislikes Bernard for Bernards heretical views on soma and sport, unorthodox sex life, and refusal to obey teaching of Ford. To humiliate Bernard D.C.H exposes Bernard. For instance, he states, “ this man who stands before you hear, this Alpha-Plus to whom so much has been given, and from whom, in consequence so much must be expected, this colleague of yours or should I anticipate and say this ex colleague?

I do not find this courageous nor heroic, I believe blinded himself to not see what he had done, to not be reminded of his deeds, even by seeing his
