He is generous, obedient, responsible, and honest. A broken young woman and her dangerous father threaten his life, but he has no harsh words for them,” (Iannone 243-278). Tom Robinson was never the evil that society thought he was and has to pay the greatest price for racism, his own life. His image was twisted by society because of his appearance, which causes the real evil in this situation to be the family who accused him and the citizens who sealed his
I will finally end the paper proving that Socrates’s claim is plausible based on upon Socrates’s view of what a good man is and on the virtues of a homeric hero. What is heroism? Heroism is a concept that was essential to the ancient Greeks, heroes were what people looked to, to model their lives after. A majority of people believed in a God, it is essentially illegal to not believe in a GOd, hence one of the charges brought upon Socrates. If you believe in a God, most likely you will believe that God is benevolent and that to gain eternal life
She never discussed her struggles to maintain everything by herself to Art. In fact, she could never properly explain her love for him, which causes Art to believe that she’s avoiding him. “In all these years we’ve been together”...”I don’t think I know an important part of you. You keep secrets inside of you. You hide”…“Why do you keep pushing me away?” (Tan 388).
Even before that, because he was an orphan, he most likely had to provide for himself. Being thrown into such an important role required him to be strong, and to be strong, Griffith suppressed his emotions. As the leader of a group of mercenaries, he had no time to bother himself with human relationships. This suppression would eventually lead to a complete lack of understanding about his own feelings, developing a childlike and impulsive mentality. Griffith’s role as a leader also nullified any worth in anything other than his dream, eventually, letting his dream define him.
This is exactly what happened to Obierika when the colonists came, when he did nothing besides prove that just thinking about things won’t change anything. Obierika had multiple moral qualms about his native Igbo culture. They would kill or exile innocent people in the name of pleasing their land’s gods. This first showed when Okonkwo, his best friend, asked Obierika why he had not come along to kill Ikemefuna, the sacrifice boy from another village. “Because I did not want to….
It can’t be confirmed if Achebe was referring to chi as karma. Okonkwo had surely did not deserve good karma, for he had not done anything to gain it. Achebe illustrated Okonkwo with high nobility, rising from nothing. His determination kept him strong in face of any threat. He had gained a great deal of success through his fears, however, Okonkwo’s inability to control his emotions led him to an immediate end.
Interactionist Andrei Chikatilo worked alone through out all his killings. He did not share his plans with anyone neither, before or after he committed them. There was no clear person who inspired his actions beside his own discoveries he made about how to satisfy himself. As the interactionalist theory believes failure of self direction and insufficient social roles are the main causes of criminal behaviour, which are highly accurate regarding Andrei Chikatilo, still, he wants power over others more then acceptance in society, as he already has it (class notes). He is prepared to do this alone, as he wants the complete satisfaction for his own extremely personal and private gains, not for the acknowledgment of others.
Similarly, in the woman warrior, “no name woman” bore the wrath of the villagers in silence without uttering the name of the man who sired her child. Kingston particularly gets mad about this silence and even attacks the silent sister at the lavatory reminding her that she was not going to be a housewife. Anzadula herself claims that she will no longer be ashamed of her existence and will use her own “serpent tongue” to overcome the traditional silence (81). The two authors show that their culture had defined role for women. Anzaldua claims that hers expected a Mastiza to turn to church as a nun, to streets as prostitute or to home as a mother.
Nick’s Father to Nick (Quote) “Whenever you feel like criticizing anyone,” he told me, “just remember that all the people in this world haven’t had the advantages that you’ve had.” The language in this quote has no dialects nor slang, and I can’t really say that this is formal since it’s a dialogue from father to son. But otherwise in the book there’s lots of descriptions of the weather, environment and the petty things. Quote from Nick “Reserving judgments is a matter of infinite hope.” As earlier, there’s no slang or dialects in this quote. And this is somehow formal so to say, since Nick isn’t subjective and it’s rather more that he’s objective when he says this. But instead for using anymore quotes (Couldn’t find anymore that was good to use so I’ll just write my opinions that I’ve had about the language in the book) The author in this book uses imagery and reflection, as well descriptions, a symbolism over stuff.
Laila again struggled for her second child, again a sacrifice, even when the child this time belonged to Rasheed. The doctor said, “if we delay, you will lose the baby” “then cut me open....cut me open and give me my baby. (P- 283)” the strength and edurance of a woman has no end. The introductoion of zalmai, a male child, as a counterpart to the female child, aziza, serves to illustrate further the unfair treatment of woman under the present government. Later in the story, a fire destroys Rasheed’s shop, leaving him unemployed, at the same time Mariam comes to know of her father’s death.
