The friendship they developed on the river and through their adventure causes Huck to be more concerned for Jim’s safety than society’s need to keep Jim captive. Huck, therefore, sees Jim as his friend and ignores society’s expectations to treat him less than human. After tearing up the letter he writes to Miss Watson, Huck “... studied a minute, sort of holding my breath, and then says to myself: ‘All right, then, I’ll go to hell’” (214). Huck realizes that Jim is in need of assistance so he decides to do what is morally correct, which is to help Jim escape. Huck decides to act on his morals rather than be held captive by society; Huck believes that he has to act in the best interest of Jim and does not consider what society believes is acceptable behavior.
The narrator is a representation of society. He is civilians that will not wait for the less fortunate or challenged individuals. He is people who do not want to deal with realities because they are inconvenient. He eventually realizes Doodle is not a hurdle in his life but his brother to be embrace. He puts effort into teaching Doodle to walk and swim, but even then he is cruel to his brother.
At Devon, Leper is an outcast who Gene befriends again because no one else seems to understand him but gene. This shows how although Gene has swayed emotions, underneath all he is a good person who doesn't mind taking another friend even if it means he is viewed differently for being around Leper. Along with that after braking Finny’s leg and finding out Finny will never play sports again, Gene wishes he had been the one to break his leg. Further showing how at heart Gene is a good friend. Gene’s widespread personality lead to him acquiring a diverse description, including jealousy, self preservation, over analysing, but friendly
No matter how much he may find the law cruel and inhuman, he has is too prideful and decides to comply with the rules. As Emily Bronte once said, “Proud people breed sad sorrows for themselves”. Tim’s choice did nothing but “breed sorrow” that damaged him for the rest of his life. Oftentimes, an individual finds themselves in despair; they tend to disconnect and isolate themselves from society as a way of coping from that anguish. In the short story, “On the Rainy River,” the narrator isolates himself into a state of moral confusion which he cannot fathom.
Although the society’s standards and his father are repressing, Huck has his own inner voice and would listen to them. That’s why when he meets Jim, a running away slave, Huck helps to save Jim and runs away with him. By the society’s standard, running away slave is intolerable and has to be caught and punished. However, Huck acts against the society’s standard even though he knows it’s wrong to help Jim run away. There exists so much racism in the society.
No one is infallible. Specifically, too much pride can lead to bad outcome. The unnamed narrator did so so much to prove to his parents and others around him that he was his brother’s keeper. He pretended to be nice unknown to his parents for instance he stated “there is within me(and with sadness I have watched it in others) a knot of cruelty born by the stream of love, much as our blood sometimes bears the seed of our destruction, and at time I was mean to doodle.” Right from the beginning, we know the unnamed narrator’s gut feelings against his brother. He only tried to be nice so that he can fulfill his selfish ends.
Zavala 1 To seek for Money,Power,and Freedom are the predominant result of racial segregation upon an individual's conscious. Many African Americans that lived during the period of slavery were traumatized by the idea that they lived under the control of white people. Many individuals fought for freedom but many ran away from problems. As shown in the novel "Song of Solomon" by Toni Morrison antagonist Macon Dead being a wealthy business man tends to fight for his own riches rather than his race. But to Guitar Bains being exposed to such violence during his childhood he was destined to take a “fight" to gain civil rights for African Americans.
He wanted to be free. Overall, everyone just stayed jealous because they didn't have a big enough passion like he did for what he wanted. I don't think for a second he ever regretted his decision, he knew what he was getting into and still did it. Don't confuse courageousness for stupidity. People confused Chris for being stupid instead of being courageous.
Huck decides to tear up the letter, for he cares too much about Jim to deny Jim’s existence and humanity. Huck chooses what he thinks is right and what he wants to do and doesn’t conform to society like Emerson. During Hucks process of picking what to do he was thinking that if he followed society and turned Jim in he would be following the rules, however he would feel horrible and if he went against society, like Emerson did, he would not be obeying the rules but he would feel better knowing that he kept his friendship with Jim and make Jim a happy person. At this point Huck’s split from society shows that he is not shaped by society and commits
He thinks of himself as superior to Hassan and starts to become inconsiderate towards Hassan and his feeling. Deep down his heart he convinces himself that Hassan was a sacrificing lamb and that he could not help Hassan in any manner. Jenny Ivers too critiqued the same, “It is an unequal friendship- Hassan adores Amir while the latter takes advantage of the formers unswerving faithfulness.” This portrays that Amir subconsciously does what benefits him whereas Hassan, on the other hand, does what pleases his Amir agha despite the fact that it might ruin his reputation and his life. However, some of his decisions helped him redeem in his life. For instance, when Amir took Sohrab away from Aseef and provided him with a bright future in America he atoned for his
