Watching The Trouble with Evan was very difficult. There were so many things this family could have done to make things better, but every time they tried they just kept falling into their own ways. Insecure disorganized attachment was quite apparent between him and both of his parents. His parents had the tendency to verbally abuse him quite a bit, yelling things that most people would never imagine yelling at their child. Other times it seemed the mother would be frightened of Evan and his behavior.
Strangely enough, Atticus was also able to see the good in Mayella Ewell, and it tore him apart having to destroy her testimony on the stand. In chapter eighteen Scout says, “Atticus hit her hard in a way that was not clear to me, but it gave him no pleasure to do so. He sat with his head down..”(Lee 252). When Atticus had to defend Tom he also had to show the jury that Mayella was speaking lies which made him upset to do so. He knew Mayella was a victim in the situation too and did not want to hurt her more than Bob Ewell already did.
He hates himself and often inflicts physical pain on himself. "He thus typified the constant introspection wherewith he tortured, but could not purify, himself" to never forget what he has done (141). To him, it is a bad thing that Hester is shown publicly as a sinner, but people forget that. What is far worse than public shame is his own inner shame that he feels constantly and privately. Knowing what only he and Hester know, the secret eats away at him and drives him close to insanity.
Proctor serves as the voice of reason and justice. As he is the one, who knows the reality of Parris, so he is always anger with him and seldom go to the church. Parris is an example of appearance versus reality. As in his first appearance, he seems good father, who cares about his daughter but in the fact, he only cares about his reputation, as he says “they will howl me out of the Salem for such corruption in my house” (1.10). Parris has always disagreements with Proctor and both of them angry with each other.
Within Ray Bradbury’s short story, “The Veldt”, the difficult character, Peter Hadley is disrespectful, intelligent and ruthless. Peter is disrespectful because he shows no courtesy or manners towards his parents and anything they say. Peter exhibits his disrespect during his argument with his father.

Pike 1 “A gentle answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger:” (Proverbs 5:1). Anger is not always the answer to our problems. In the book, The Bronze Bow, the vengeful boy, Daniel Bar Jamin, disregarded this knowledge, and by doing so caused massive harm. Daniel and his demon possessed Sister Leah, lived in a small house with only each other for company. Leah had never proven able to accomplish regular household tasks and feared everything.
Long story short he was a cruel,evil and and cold-hearted man who had no sympathy. Silence is later developed and brought to the story to explain due to Trujillo and his awful actions.

She didn’t want her baby to die or to be sent to the Fringes but what she received from her sister was isolation (Wyndham 71). “So there has been a Deviation; and deviation, any deviation from the true image is blasphemy - no less. You have produced a defilement.” Due to the laws, people had to report to the governor if they see anyone or anything is deviation, so in Waknuk, discrimination is always happening. (Wyndham 72). Likely, this also shown the principles in Waknuk have blinded the people terribly, people always think it is the punishment from God toward them but actually it is not.
Odysseus is not a hero because he was stubborn, self absorbed, and ignorant towards other people's needs. This is demonstrated numerous times in the novel. For example he never listens to anyone who tries to tell him he is wrong, like Circe, he was very disloyal, and his temper always leads him to do unimaginable things to people. To be a hero you certainly have to care about the
Because he could never live up to his father’s expectations, Biff felt that his life was worthless and that he wasn’t good enough, which arguably turned him down the path that ended him up in jail. Biff blamed Willy for this, telling him that he “...never got anywhere because you blew me so full of hot air I could never stand taking orders from anybody!” (Miller 131). Also, Willy’s inability to accept anything deviating from what he wanted to hear led to Biff not being able to talk to his father candidly. Willy never allowed Biff to expose the truth - he constantly reminded Biff how smart, successful, and liked he was, so much so that Biff never had the chance (or the confidence and heart) to tell him all of this was not true. He didn’t want to be the one responsible for disappointing his father, and therefore played along,
