Robert Stevenson uses his protagonist’s, Dr. Jekyll, person versus self conflict to illustrate this point. Throughout the text, the reader learns that Dr. Jekyll was born into good fortune and was well-respected in society. However, the reader learns that it was not enough for him. He craves irregularities and he seeks a way to experience both sides of his identity without harming his reputation, which leads him to immoral experiments that bring out Hyde. To be specific, Jekyll states the following, “Many a man would have even blazoned such irregularities as I was guilty of; but from the high views that I had set before me, I regarded and hid them with an almost morbid sense of shame” (Stevenson 55).
In the novel Lord of the Flies by Willian Golding, each character has impacts on the overall purpose of the story. Piggy, for instance, have many influences in the novel. The author used Piggy's intelligence and maturity to show the readers how there is evil in each one of us. Though Piggy lacks the quality of a leader, he was the smartest boy among the other boys. In the story, the author wrote, "Once more that evening Ralph had to adjust his values.
Huck has made some mistakes and lied to the watchman, king and duke, but it was all done with the right intentions and attitude. I have turned into mature student throughout my life and Huck has matured into a helpful adventurer without throwing
Admittedly, Atticus Finch is an unrealistic character, because he is an adult who is believing in completely false statements. “Way back about nineteen-twenty there was a Klan, but it was a political organization more than anything” (147). However, Atticus is shown as a realistic character, because he has both positive and negative traits. He tries to see the best in people, and teaches his children to “climb into his skin and walk around in it”. Additionally, he also has negative traits, shown when he allows his children to be put in danger.
Through these fights and through these arguments, William Golding shows that power is a hard thing to grasp and it is something that is even harder to maintain. Piggy has a really hard time trying to be powerful and lead the group, but his actions and the actions of the other boys show that he can’t hold power over a group, and they show why Piggy has a hard
Insecurity is the uncertainty or anxiety of oneself which an abundance of teenagers have been found to struggle from. Sometimes, a person's insecurities can cause them to be someone who they are not. However insecurities are usually caused by someone mocking you of your differences, which eventually causes themselves to try to exemplify someone they believe is better than them self, instead of expressing their differences.

In result of Gene’s insecurities, he is unable to express himself fully which leads him to steal someone else's that he is envy of.
A good servant knows what their master means, and Grumio didn't. Grumio eventually saw what Petruchio meant, but didn't until later, when it didn't matter. Grumio is not a very good servant, acting ridiculously, because his skull was too thick to understand what Petruchio meant. Petruchio should
Morals are also a big aspect in the stories, since what they believed was right or wrong before now has to be seen differently in order for them to grow and survive. In The Redemption of Althalus, Althalus is originally a thief, liar, and braggart. However, once recruited by Dweia, he has to alter the way he handles situations in order to appease her, since she 's never too fond of murder. Other characters in the story also change some of their ways for the better. As Bheid puts it, "In their hearts, mean really want to be just and kindly, but other things get in the way."
This is mainly a result of both characters being idealists and rejecting change. Whilst both characters thrive in the past they struggle in reality with their individual distinct flaws. It is the faults in their characters that, not only makes them distinct, though is what leads to their ultimate fall at the end of each novel. Holden Caulfield and Jay Gatsby struggle with the present because they tend to reject reality by being overly self-interested. Holden Caulfield appears to not “fit in” anywhere and leads him to view most people as “phony” as an
