Jealousy leads people to do things that they otherwise may not have done. This apparent in the text "All Summer in a Day" by Ray Bradbury, a young girl, by the name of Margot, has an experience all of the other children envy. As the only one who remembers the sun during a seven-year rain, she has to deal with the trauma of being away from the sun that means so much to her. Consequently, the children hate her for this and treat her with complete disrespect and zero regard to her emotions. Bradbury displays jealousy's negative impact on someone's behavior and exposes human nature's tendency to want what others have with his use of pivotal moments.
All the kids are from Venus, except for Margot, who lived on Earth until she was four, and she remembers what the sun looks like. This makes the kids jealous because they want to know what the sun looks like so badly and to know someone else already knows makes them even more jealous of her since she got to see it and they didn’t. In the song “Mr .Brightside” by The Killers, the guy goes on a date with
Last, when the kids kept Margot from having fun it shows jealousy. The first example of jealousy changing someone’s actions is where the kids locked Margot in a closet. This shows that the kids were jealous that Margot remembers the sun and they don’t. The kids’ jealousy keeps on controlling them by making them be mean to Margot. Jealousy shouldn’t control people’s actions.
Addie Bundren is the most confusing of all the characters in As I Lay Dying by William Faulkner. From her hatred of Anse to her odd, loving relationship with Jewel, it was very difficult to get a complete grasp of who Addie really was. Some might see her as loving and loyal while others are taken aback by her actions. After much deliberation, it seems like her disturbing qualities seem to prevail over her loving ones. One of the biggest themes in the book is selfishness.
Margot is the only one in her class that has remembered the sun before. The kids mock her and say that she is lying. The kids say this because they are jealous of Margot. When the sun finally came out again that day the kids were bullies and pushed her into a dark and old closet so she wouldn’t be able to see the sun. My choice of theme to this story really portrays that these kids were really cruel to Margot.
There are many examples of jealousy in All Summer in a Day, but this event is perhaps the biggest and most important to the story. Going back to the last paragraph, I wrote about the scene where the kids locked Margot in the closet, and I described that scene as an act of betrayal. Even though that scene is an act of betrayal, I think the scene is also an act of jealousy. If the kids were not jealous of Margot, they would have never locked her in the closet. If the kids had decided to just be jealous and not take action, Margot would have still gotten to see the sun.
Literary Critique In the story ”Who Am I Without Him” written by Sharon Flake, I Felt the author expressed the scene very well by bringing the situation to life through the characters actions. In the story ”Who Am I Without Him” the main Character was bad because that is who she is, and she thought to herself if there is something wrong with being herself. The main character can’t tell if Raheem likes her because he is always shady in every scene especially in the last few. She hates the good girls because one of them stole Raheem away from her but the good girl moved away to another house. She is very jealous so anytime the good girl looks at him and he looks bad she gets jealous.
The other children in her class are jealous of her. A very good lesson in the story is that if you let jealousy get to you it will hurt you as well as others. From the beginning, the details show that the kids are in a lot of pain because of their jealousy over Margot. The Sun is the reason why they are painfully jealous of Margot. She has seen the Sun every for many years while these kids only get to see the Sun every seven years for only an hour.
By using the devil which everyone feared at the time, they got what they wanted. These actions were made by love and selfishness, love which ties to many emotions, including jealousy, which as young girls they could have had to start these trials. And selfishness, which these people were known for. Even if the person accused was innocent, they did not care, for they only cared for themselves. In a small town where mostly everyone knew each other, some people began to create grudges, rivalries, and hatred for one another.
She is considered bad luck and maybe she feels helpless. I think that she thinks that Aunt Baba is the only one that cares about her and that she wants PLT to think that about her. Quote “As soon as I said this, I felt scared and wanted to back out, but Wu Chun-mei was already jumping up and down with glee.” Pg.98 & 99 Response I feel really bad for Adeline. She probably doesn’t want to show how weak towards Niang she is. She also doesn’t want her friends to suspect anything bad is going on at home.
