To begin with, The Red Badge of Courage does not show an “absolute and uncompromising allegiance to obscenity and evil,” because throughout the novel, good deeds are shown, and Henry finds role models that are ideals of virtue in war. For example, the loud soldier takes care of Henry after Henry has supposedly been shot in the head, and he lets the youth use his bed and blankets for the night. According to O’Brien, that would not be done in a war story, because in them there is no virtue, there is only an uncompromisable allegiance to evil. No story with that allegiance to evil in it would show kindness, or men taking care of one another. Despite Henry giving the reader several examples of slipping
This exemplar can be seen as something that symbolizes philosopher Jacques Derrida’s notion of “trace” because of incest not being mentioned in the short story. Therefore, the term of incest is never mentioned in the short story, however, the unnamed narrator states, “The result was discoverable, he added, in that silent yet importunate and terrible influence which for centuries had moulded the destinies of his family, and which made him what I now saw him — what he was. Such opinions need no comment, and I will make none.” (Poe 9) which portrays that the unnamed narrator felt a sense of decay in the Usher house. With this in mind, it could be interpreted as “trace” of incest since the presence of incest in the Usher family is not present or mentioned in the short story but the house of the Usher family that is decaying throughout the short story can be interpreted as incest inducing the decay of the Usher family. Furthermore, incest can be interpreted as present in the short story since the unnamed narrator states, “The disease of the lady Madeline had long baffled the skill of her physicians.
The narrator hires Bartleby and doesn’t fire him when Bartleby refuses to do the work that the narrator asks him to do. The narrator’s first three words that describe Bartleby are “pallidly neat, pitiably respectful, incurable forlorn” (Melville par. 15). The narrator sees negative light from seeing Bartleby. The narrator starts to notice strange things about Bartleby: “he never spoke but to answer,” “never visited any refectory or eating house,” and “never went out for a walk” (Melville par.

When the creature came to life, he was extremely terrified by its appearance and abandoned it. He had not thought of any consequence of this action. I would like to analyze the character of the creature independently from its creator. It was ‘born' as a very kind being, which thought that it related to humankind. At the end of a novel, it claims: "When I run over the frightful catalogue of my sins, I cannot believe that I am the same creature whose thoughts were filled with sublime and transcendent visions of the beauty and the majesty of goodness.
Corresponding to how the Lion “fell asleep” in the poppy field where opium grows, Bryan too “fell asleep” in a political sense by never focusing on this issue, and ignoring foreign policy. Ridiculed and called a “coward” by the majority of the population, Bryan, afraid to modernize his issues, stuck with the free silver mantra. To farmers, Bryan appeared courageous because he fought strongly for free silver which benefited
While George was having a conversation with Slim, Slim insults Lennie by calling him a cuckoo. George defends Lennie by saying, “He ain’t no cuckoo… He’s dumb as hell, but he ain’t crazy,” (Steinbeck 39). With George admitting he knows Lennie is not the most intelligent, but is completely sane, proves that he’s passionately speaking from his heart. Additionally, George has endangered his own life to keep Lennie safe many times in the past. Before arriving to the ranch in Soledad, Lennie and George was staying in a town named Weed.
I have chosen to write about my all-time biggest obsession, The Lord of The Rings. I will focus on the author, J.R.R Tolkien, the difference between the films and the novels and the discussion regarding the lack of women in this story. I will also concentrate on one specific character, an elf named Arwen, and her role, as she has been accused of being of excess. John Ronald Reuel Tolkien, otherwise known as J.R.R Tolkien was a marvellous writer. You could even say that he was a legend.
Lawrence Selden, one of many characters in Edith Wharton’s House of Mirth, is a hero throughout the novel because of his admirable detachment from the New York City social scene even though he knew that meant he could not be with Lily. Despite the fact that Lily and Selden were never able to settle down together and live happily-ever-after, Wharton gives the readers some solace in the last three paragraphs: The “moment of love” between Selden and Lily “had kept them from atrophy and extinction. Wharton’s tone and careful word choice in these last three paragraphs should leave the reader with some sort of comfort regarding the relationship between Lawrence Selden and Lily Bart. The positive tone in these last three paragraphs and Lily’s opinion

Before the attack on his home is confirmed, Macbeth tells his servant, “As honor, love, obedience, troops of friends, / I must not look to have, but in their stead / Curses, not loud but deep, mouth-honor, breath” (5.3.25-27). After killing too many people, Macbeth finds no purpose in honor or having love like a king normally has because he has survived so long without them, so by now he has adapted to these emptinesses. He has come to the conclusion that friends are no longer necessary because they just create more issues and more curses. They give him a false hope of honor, but the honor will not help him now. Macbeth yearns for the honor which he abandons once he decides to follow Lady Macbeth’s advice.
