The author in some way or another portrays everyone as an underdog. A vague definition of underdog is someone who is considered an outsider and, or, under estimated. Harper Lee does an amazing job in bringing out the underdog that is in everyone. Arthur Radley was very much an underdog. He was an outsider and no one really thought much about him, except to gossip, but Boo turned out to be so much more.
Ichabod’s intentions with Katrina were never true after that. The love that Ichabod has for Katrina was just over money, the rivalry of Ichabod and Brom Bones, and never over how much he liked her. The love that Ichabod has for Katrina was just over money. Katrina was the daughter of a very wealthy man, once Ichabod found out, was all that mattered to Ichabod and many other suitors before him.

We often seen someone is only care about himself, they don’t care about others even their family and they always have excuse of it. Reverend Parris is a kind of this person. “The Crucible” is about the Salem witch trials. Starting with several young girls claim to be afflicted by witchcraft and then accuse people in the town of witchcraft. In The Crucible, Arthur Miller shapes Parris’s character as a very selfish person, and everything he did was to keep his good reputation in the village and to get rid of anyone against him, which drives him mad.
John Proctor suffers from a sense of excessive pride throughout the entirety of the play. In Act II of The Crucible the reader sees Proctors pride when he is arguing with Elizabeth, his wife, about sin he committed with Abbigail. One line that supports this is “I have not moved from there to there without I think to please you, and still an everlasting funeral marches round your heart. I cannot speak but I am doubted, every moment judged for lies, as though I come into a court when I come into this house!” (Miller 58) Proctor acts as if he has done no wrong and will not have a soft heart towards his wife who is doubtful after he committed
Once he almost squeezed all the air out of him he was flung back onto the ground. When Scout heard a man breathing hard a coughing hard he went towards the person and asked who he was and there was no answer. That person that caused Bob Ewell to go flying back onto the ground was Boo Radley. No one ever sees boo he just lives in his parents house, everyone thinks of him as a monster that wants to kill or hurt everyone even though he is a heart warming normal person. The book, To Kill a Mockingbird, has the theme of there is always good in bad and bad in good, its shown in the paragraphs above.
On page 262, “Still but for a man breathing heavily, breathing heavily and staggering… ‘Jem?’ There was no answer but the man’s heavy breathing. ‘Jem?’ Jem didn’t answer.” Even though he did not answer, she went out of her way to ‘scout’ for her injured brother. Mr. Ewell could have easily taken Scout’s voice and the dark night as his advantage, but being the loving person she is, Scout took the chance to look for him. Atticus took the risk to fight for Tom Robinson knowing that people would start hating him
In a Thousand Acres Larry Cook is depicted as more of a monster instead of a fool. In a Thousand Acres Larry is more attached to Ginny and Rose not because they tell him what he wants to here but because he molested and abused them when they were children. Larry really shows no remorse for his actions when his daughters were younger and is a lot less evil and static character then Lear. Next, there is also a difference between how Cordelia and Caroline are portrayed. In King Lear Cordelia is characterized as the daughter
People in the Victorian Era times were amazed because they didn’t have anything to do back in the day and now they have stuff to do instead of work all of time for money and they could of enjoyed there time with family and friends and have a good time. It also took a lot of stress away during the deep depression because everyone was down at the time and you had to have a way to do more things than work all of the time. They tried to make up their own games with rocks and sticks most of the time but it did not really work a lot so other people made up all of the other games and they started to spread. And that is how parlour games became a thing because most of the people that spread the word about parlour games was in a bar at the time that they started to spread it around. But they spread it like how they spread now days everyone telling people about it.
The idea of male rape is tabooed. Hence, it is marginalized in our society. But then there is Paul D with a rusty tin-box heart. It is clear that Paul D was oppressed in ways we can never imagine ourselves in his shoe that made him feel less-manly and often not anything but a human package of pain and domination that never faded but grew larger in his rusty heart, every day. First of those instances started with Paul D not getting to start a family like Halle or Sixo; Paul D thought something was wrong with him even though he liked Sethe from the moment he saw her in the plantation.
Tom also says that Mayella told him that she has never kissed a grown man before. Tom comments, "She says what her papa do to her don't count" (Lee 260). Tom’s testimony suggests that Bob Ewell sexually assaults his daughter, which is disgusting and possibly the worst thing a parent can do to their
