In retrospect this is a smart thing for Tony to do. Why be the one with fake or given power and in fear of the FBI, when you can be the one hunting and making a real power for yourself. But when it comes to their relationship I don’t see one. I see this relationship more as Tony devaluing Junior and his approaches to the mob. There is no longer a need or a want for Junior in his life, it almost feels like Tony is forcing himself to keep this bond within Junior.
As the episode continued, Clark learned Jeremy Creek’s motives for the violence. After Clark became the scarecrow, Jeremy tells him “I thought if I punished them it would stop. But it never stops.”. Clark learned through this information why Jeremy decided to injure these people, but also taught himself not to direct his own anger back onto other people. During the climax of the main fight between Creek and Clark at the school Kent comes to the realization of his own destiny.
Huck thinks about Miss Watson and how he is betraying her by helping Jim escape. Huck encounters slave catchers and he is internally whether to tell about Jim but decides not to and says, “They went and I got aboard the raft, feeling bad and low, because I knowed very well I had done wrong, and I see it warn’t no use for me to try to learn to do right; a body that don’t get started right when he’s little ain’t got no show -- when the pinch comes there ain’t nothing to back him up and keep him to his work, and so he gets beat” (Twain 102). Then later in the novel Jim is sold by some con men for $40 which upsets Huck and causes him to realize he cares about Jim and says, “All right, then I’ll GO to hell” (Twain 225). Huck is defying society’s laws by deciding to help captured Jim. Huck is maturing significantly because his perception of Jim has changed.
Also, this book has a lot of twists and turns to it. An example would be when Bod’s friend befriends the person who killed Bod’s family. At the same time, his friend had no idea that the man she had become friends with was trying to kill Bod. Another twist is when Bod is convinced to go with ghouls into their home (Not a good idea).
Not a lot of other animals would have done this, an animal too docile like a zebra would in no way protect its owner as it lacks the appropriate bloodlust. While this plot point shows the gift of life the Bengal tiger relinquished to Pi, and also singles out many animals that would not have made an appropriate companion, it does not narrow down the animals enough. With this point alone, the orangutan, Grey wolf, chimpanzee or even a pet dog could protect Pi from the hands of the blind castaway. However the deciding criterion is the fierce nature of the animal.
Victor knew the creature was a danger to society and thought that the monster was after him, but slowly realized that that was not the case. The monster just wanted affection, but when he was getting tired of not being loved, he tried out a different route. At first, he tried to make a deal with Victor. That if Victor made a companion for the monster, he would leave him alone. Victor had agreed to this and postponed marrying Elizabeth for two years.
In the poem “Proverbs of Hell” by William Blake, we see the proverbs “Eternity is in love with the productions of time.” (10) And “The fox provides for himself, but God provides for the lion.” (35) That expresses certain romanticism values.
Henry uses situational irony to convey his theme in the story “The Ransom of Red Chief”. Two thieves change from wanting to hold a kidnapped boy for ransom to instead giving the boy back to his father, along with $250.00. They quickly realize that the boy, nicknamed “Red Chief”, is not who they expect him to be, and their whole kidnapping scheme consequently does not go as planned. Eventually, Bill Driscoll, one of the thieves, begs to let the boy go back home even though they have to pay the boy’s father $250.00. Bill says, “You ain’t going to let this chance go, are you?”
He takes the lead naturally, and begins considering their options positively, after Uncle Billy raids and abandons them. Oakhurst, choosing not to tell the two kids of what Uncle Billy has done exhibits his gentleness even further. Without the mules it is plain that the group would have no idea on what to do, if it isn’t for John. The orator states, “For some occult reason, Mr. Oakhurst could not bring himself to disclose Uncle Billy’s rascality, and so offered the hypothesis that he had wandered from the camp and had accidentally stampeded the animals.” (Harte)
This means that letting the kidnaper go means that you may not be able to see your child again and such thought is dreaded by any parents. On the other hand, it also means that you choose not to save two other innocent lives. One can question the morality of this decision because if you had watched your son carefully, the kidnapper would have never had the opportunity to get him and the pedestrians would have never been involved. Therefore, you are morally obligated to save the pedestrians who are in a sense mere victims of your inattention. Moreover, you will have to live with this burden the rest of your
As said earlier, Lev thinks he is being taken with force and being used for ransom when really Connor was just trying to help save him. Lev has gained the mindset to think that his unwinding was a good thing and he should be proud of it. “This is what I
A surprise is often used to create a thrill, but sometimes it can create . Authors use a device called situational irony that creates an element of surprise or an unexpected twist in the plot of the story. This catches the reader off guard. Situational irony can create other emotions then surprise. Guy de Maupassant uses situational irony to make the reader feel sympathy in “The Necklace.”
In the end, when the crippled dog comes to him for help, he chases it away in a cruel manner. Even though he comes to his senses and calls for the dog afterward, he is somewhat already morally corrupted; he is no different from the men who had brutalized the wolf. (general moral
In the short story “Ransom of Red Chief” by O. Henry, it used differences in the point of views of the characters to create dramatic irony by the characters Sam and Bill believing that the father will pay to get the son back, yet we can tell from the child 's actions that the father won’t pay that amount, so the father ends up getting paid to get the son back, which was humorous to us but not to the actual characters. An example from the text to support my claim is from page 25,” That boy had Bill terrorized from the start.” This shows that even though Bill was the kidnapper the kid was torturing him. This explains how from the beginning this child was too horrible for anyone to want to handle. We also know that dad, who spent most time with
