On the other hand, Aunt Alexandra has also shown the reader signs that she values her family’s reputation. In chapter 23 of To Kill a Mockingbird, Aunt Alexandra did not allow Scout to play with Walter Cunningham because of his poor background. She said, “Because-he-is-trash, that’s why you can’t play with him.
First and foremost, Twain wrote these satirical scenes to bring attention to the problems of society in hopes they would try to correct them. A large portion of these scenes was centered around hypocrisy. One of the hypocritical groups Huck encounters in his tale is the Shepherdsons and Grangerfords-two families locked in a family feud. Both of the families have forgotten what the feud is even about, but they refuse to give up, which is costing them many lives in the process.

That is just the way with some people.
First, he cares a lot about his family and is a very kind-hearted man. He changes into a greedy, violent man, and at the end of the story changes back into a man who loves his
“Barn Burning” is a very interesting story about a family and the hardships they face. Though the narrative focuses on Sarty Snopes, his father Abner causes many of the problems they encounter.

In A Tale Of Two Cities we find three main reasons this time was so broken by examining the author’s background and by exploring his protrails of a cruel aristocracy and an oppressed peasantry.
