A common thought among adolescents is the dream to finally leave home and discover who they are; I certainly share this dream. Though the concept is common, the reasons are unique; The differences in character and circumstances define who a person is. What may appear reasonable to some could very well be completely irrational to another. The story of Chris McCandless as reported by Jon Krakauer in the biographic novel Into the Wild is no exception. From the events in his childhood to the conflict with his father, we can see that Chris McCandless, a young man still discovering himself, became disillusioned with the structure of society and desired nothing more than to “no longer be poisoned by civilization” (163).
Eulogy for Okonkwo by Nowye this whole eulogy stuff bs and i don't know why we are doing this haha.a. When my father Okonkwo died, inside i felt despair and anger. With him being my father i obviously was very saddened to find out that he had hung himself. Though i am very saddened about our loss of Okonkwo i am sickened by the way he passed, He knew committing suicide in our town is very much against what we believe in here at Umuofia. Okonkwo knew this before he took his own life, which does not make much sense to me because he wanted to become leader of the clan for a very long time, but then took his life in such a dishonorable way.

In conclusion, McCandless was just like every other youth who did not like to obey by the rules and wanted to explore taking a risky journey which would forever be a learning experience for him. Now some may believe Chris went Into the wild to escape a mental illness, but the reason he left everything was because he was a rebellion of youth and his risk-taking

Douglass was not exempted from this; and perhaps due to his intelligence and young age at the time, he suffered great depression and suicidal thoughts. All this mental suffering originated from learning about exactly what freedom is and that he would never have it since he was a slave for life. Here Douglass reveals in his own words the degree of depression understanding his condition made him suffer: “I often found myself regretting my own existence, and wishing myself dead; and but for the hope of being free, I have no doubt but that I should have killed myself, or done something for which I should have been killed.” (40) By saying that he “regretted my own existence, and wished myself dead”, Douglass reveals to the reader that he would have preferred never to have been born, to having been born in slavery divested of any probable chance at freedom. To Douglass the hope of gaining freedom, no matter how slight, was the only thing keeping him going. That without freedom, without liberty, life was not worth living.

John Proctor, a character from The Crucible is a Rebel/Misfit Archetype. A Rebel/Misfit is defined as a character that radically rejects the values of a society and the restrictions placed on him or her. I chose to do my research project on John because Proctor is my favorite character from The Crucible and throughout the whole book he was feeling guilty for his actions but wanted to do the right thing. Proctor can also fit into the Hero Archetype for sacrificing his life to save his wife. Back in the 1690s, not going to church every Sunday was a sin and could be punishable by death.
Reading the story "Bloodchild," by Octavia Buttler was very difficult for me to follow. What I do know is this young boy had a near accident that almost killed him. Kind of a near death experience that the boy was not fully understanding why because, he had lost his memory. However, he comes back from that experience with no memory of knowing what really happen to himself. After that he had gotten to know this child from the opposite sex, which was the same age he was.
Tragically, despite at the end of their journeys Timothy and Chris started to realize their mistakes, it was too late for them to turn back. Two days before his estimated death, Chris wrote in his journal a controversial line: “Happiness only real when shared”(Chapter 18, Krakauer). He took the journey to escape from people and his past. Whole his life he chose to be a loner, avoiding intimate attachments and disregarding other people’s feelings. This entry is an evidence that he re-evaluated himself and was ready to go back to the human community and face his fears that he was trying to hide from in the wilderness.
What does the text SAYS What the text DOES “Nothing is beautiful and true.” (p.43) I chose this quote because even though Oskar wanted to be like his father so much, he was still traumatized by the tragedy. Ever since his father died, he has become a more complex thinker. “There are so many different ways to die, I just need to know which was his.” Oskar does not accept his father’s death until he has finds a reasonable explanation for how it happened. “Every time I left the apartment to go searching for the lock, I became a little lighter, because I was getting closer to Dad. But I also became a little heavier, because I was getting farther from Mom.” (pg.

I recollect watch his biography on TV, yes Tookie did a great deal of executing however the one he went to imprison for he didn 't submitted, so to me individual this was a wrongful passing. Tookie had changed his life while serving his lifelong incarceration, he even composed a youngsters book, and in addition he attempted to put a conclusion to the groups. His demise was open for individuals to see individual and in addition on TV, at the age I was I didn 't comprehend why they would demonstrate his passing it was dismal and appear to be exceptionally uncomfortable. I say this on the grounds that while watching his execution they were having issues with the lawful infusion in his arm. This demonstrates regardless of what capital punishment they pick everything man made.
