This was really important during this time because of all the racism and judgment going on. Scouts intelligence, innocence, and friendliness shaped her view of the events in To Kill a Mockingbird. Just because someone is intelligent doesn’t mean that they will always be respected. Scout was often put down for her intelligence.
My last reason the main character acts like he is tough is in the end. For example, in paragraph 125 the author says “ In paragraph 125, for example, the character does say something he did was the bravest to admit he wasn't tough. This means he was technically the bravest because he was the first that he wasn't tough in the first place. “Ok i admit it. I'm not as tough as you guys.”
Character Analysis of Atticus Finch In the book To Kill A Mockingbird, Atticus Finch is the father of Jem and Scout Finch, and one of the best lawyers in the region. The adults of the area see Mr. Finch as a humble, honest, and courageous man, but often his children do not see him that way. But when the mad dog, Tim Johnson, is walking down the street, the children see him as the adults do.
‘You don’t mean-’ cried Rainsford.” (Connell 73 and 74) This quote supports the theme because Rainsford trust’s his gut about Ivan and he turns out to be right. When Rainsford first met Zaroff and he told him that he hunted humans, Rainsford was totally against it. He was so confused.
Due to the high intelligence level of human, we often think that we know what are the consequences of our action, and do things the way we like without knowing the real impact that we cause. In the essay “Thinking Like A Mountain”, Aldo Leopold tell us how important is sustainability. As a boy Aldo Leopold thought by killing the predators on the mountain, there will be more deer to hunt which is an advantage for the hunters; however, he did not know that his action could affect the sustainability of the mountain. Through his life experience, he then realize sustainability importance, all species have inherent value in the biosphere, humans have no right to reduce this richness and diversity only to satisfy our needs, from the perspective of
To begin, Atticus was firm and fair. In To Kill a Mockingbird Atticus is seen as a powerful father figure in his children's lives. In addition, his steady presence keeps the children grounded. As Atticus was speaking to his kids he says “ You never understand a person until you consider things from his point of view until you climb into his skin and walk around in it” (Lee 30.) Atticus is always putting things in different perspectives to teach his children.
Atticus taught me many things about being courageous. For example, he knew he probably wasn’t going to win the Tom Robinson case yet he still gave it his all which showed his loyalty towards Tom. His children learned something from a great man like what color you are doesn’t define who you truly are inside. Lee, Harper. To Kill a Mockingbird.
When Atticus shoots the mad dog, Scout sees it as a tremendous act of bravery and applauds him, although he doesn’t see it the same way she does. Atticus displays a sense of courage elsewhere, and his judgment helped him put down the gun and accomplish acts of true bravery. Scout is hurt by the comments her community makes at Atticus because of his decisions, and doesn’t understand why Atticus doesn’t just drop the case. Her thinking shows that she doesn’t have a concept of the prejudice and racism in her town just yet. This displays that racism is a learned habit, taught by parents and teachers throughout their childhood.
I believe Shaun Callarman whom focuses on Chris McCandless is quite harsh in saying Chris had no common sense and saying that he does not admire him for his courage when Chris McCandless was a brave, wise and intelligent man. He knew exactly what he was getting into when he started his journey on going to Alaska. I think that he wanted to explore the wild and experience a different life other than the one he had. I disagree with Callarman saying McCandless was bright and arrogant at the same time. He had no business going to Alaska but that was his tactic for getting away from society.
On page 47, he explains that he is not a murderer because he gives his victims fair warning by “snapping the twig,” before he appears. Likewise, I liked Brent’s speech on page 61, which gives the audience an in-depth look at the way Brent sees the world, rather his disdain for society. Brent projects the fault onto his victims for their deaths due to their inability to detach themselves from material items and their overall lack of appreciation for the freedom they have to live and breath each second of each day to the fullest.
Mean it for good! Patricia: My son prepared for this day, like his father prepared for his sport games, I am surprised he put that must thought into his presentation. My son…..went from being a boy in the hood, to a man in the world.
For example, at the time of filming the tribe would have been familiar and well acquainted with modern weaponry and tools, yet for the purposes of the production Flaherty had his participants re-enact a dangerous method of Walrus baiting which had long been abandoned by the hunter society when they could trade fur pelts for guns (Rothman, 2013). With the commercialism of trade in place it is also unlikely that at the time of filming the Inuit’s would have been awe struck and confused at the presence of a record player. However, the Inuit males were agreeable to playing out a scene where they are clearly puzzled by the magic of the voice emanating from the
The book no choirboy chapter 3 Nanos story is a man who was mostly innocent and the evidence did not support the claim that Nanos was the one who shot the gun but still was guilty because testimony of eyewitness that made a deal so they can save there own live but at the cost of his. This show how unjustified the trial was and also showing that whoever the investigator where, They were trying to find who to blame as fast as possible. Nanos in school had a bright future, he was an honor student and was really good at sports and even made it to junior olympics. His family wasn 't good financial and had to work a lot.
Imagine living in a society with barely any emotion or knowledge. In my opinion that wouldn’t be a very good or interesting life. In the book Fahrenheit 451 that is how their society is. There is hardly any schooling and there are no books. There are very strict rules that make everyone depressed.
