Reader do not figure exactly what happened to Jim’s father, but we know he is gone and Jim’s mother is a single parent. Over the story, Charles proves to always be there for him as Jim continues to get himself into trouble. Next, Jim is a anti-hero, a protagonist that lacks moral personality traits given to a hero. Jim wants to stop the carnival, but still wants to ride to carsel to become older. He is conflicted on helping Will and Charles, or getting the life as a n adult that he wants.
When asked why he wants to teach his brother to walk he says he does not want to do more work. “So I won’t have to haul you around all the time”(Hurst 1). Clearly the narrator teaches his brother to walk not because of compassion, but because of greed. During the middle of the thunderstorm,
The issue of who’s at fault between Sonny and his older brother is one that cannot simply be answered by pointing figures. It is hard to blame Sonny for the events that have occurred throughout his life. At the same time it is difficult to put the blame on Sonny’s older brother. He was hurt, confused and afraid that someone who he loved was making decisions that could potentially one day ruin that loved one’s life. Though Sonny’s brother was there to help his brother, whether it was because of his promise to his mother or not, Sonny’s brother never took the time or effort to fully understand Sonny’s addiction or Sonny’s passion for music.
But may I not venture to suggest that you will find my idea of sport more diverting than Ivan’s?” (Connell 16). Rainsford and Kane both faced internal conflicts about how they are going to survive. They can either run away, die like cowards, or they can stay and try to survive against their problems. Kane does not deserve to be alone in his fight against the antagonist, Frank Miller, because he has helped his town so much, but no one shows gratitude by volunteering as a depute. In this film a character named Baker states “I don’t believe it!
Had he had a close friend die before the war, it is certain that he would not lie to their mother about how it happened, nor would he not show any emotion, so this interaction displays how his ability to display emotion has been impeded. In addition, the entire situation that Paul goes through when his father “drags [him] along to a table with a lot of others.”(p. 166) He sees that they don’t understand what war is like at all, as when “a head-master shakes hands with [him] and says: ‘So you come from the front? What is the spirit like out there? Excellent, eh? Excellent?’” (p.
In the city, it seemed that Charlie could not help getting into trouble in some way or another, and this is largely attributable to the lack of guidance from leaders and mentors available to him. Since they are still maturing both physically and mentally and building the foundation for their future, it is exceptionally important that American Indian youth have people they can look up to as role models while they transition into adulthood (Estrada, 3/8/17). Without such guidance, Charlie does not recognize the value or purpose of his life, and his sketches suggest that he is even contemplating suicide (00:05:00). Recognizing that his life needs to change, Charlie’s mother sends him to stay with her brother on the Navajo Indian Reservation in hopes that he can become better. Not only is the reservation much more rural and less commercialized, as Charlie discovers, life on the reservation is more slowly paced and grounded in traditional beliefs.
In Ethan Frome, Edith Wharton depicts Ethan as a tragic hero who gets downtrodden by his circumstances and mainly, his personality. He has the tragic flaw of not being willing to put anyone in pain even if he benefits from it. Through this, he gets blocked from pursuing an education when he must care for his ill parents. Consequently, he also doesn’t get to socialize with other people of his age, making him feel awfully lonely. To further his tragic predicament, he marries Zeena, his cousin who arrives to take care of his mother and unfortunately, she prevents him from pursuing his love for nature and engineering by wanting to stay in Starkfield forever for her own ego.
Evidently, their visions collide and this becomes problematic when they are unable to effectively communicate their wants to one another. While Ann is home and her husband is away, she starts having thoughts about her own wishes and wants from John. She wonders, “why sit trying to talk with a man who never talked? Why talk when there was nothing to talk about but crops and cattle, the weather and the neighbours?” (Ross 4). The feelings she has are not ones that she shares with her husband, leaving him clueless to her discontent.
When Teddy is faced with predicaments with his aunt and uncle, he succumbs to pressure. As his uncle is blaring out irrational comments at him, he does nothing but “[sits] by the window and [looks] out at the rain” (Nowlan 2). Teddy’s lack of rebellion is the conflict that portrays his inability to express his own opinions in words which is a key to obtaining individuality. He is blinded by his own innocence and succumbs to his uncle’s words when he sits alone which implies that he agrees with him. Another example of his innocence that stops him from becoming an individual is when he destroys his creation.
Although, Giles Corey was accused he refused to admit nor deny being a part of witchcraft resulting in a harsh punishment. An example from the play “He would not answer aye or nay to his indictment; for if he denied the charge they’d hang him surely, and auction out his property. So he stand mute, and died Christian under the law. And so his sons will have his farm.” (135) this shows Giles denied the choices to keep his land so his sons would not lose their home. Finally, through John Proctor tries to tell the truth about Abigale and the girls, Elizabeth Proctor supporting her husband choice even though they have children to raise, and Giles Corey rather be pressed than lie about being a part of witchcraft it is clear the fundamental subject is courage.
