Blondie now.” Seeing as Rodolpho does not portray the traditional ideas of masculinity, the men down at the docks do not respect him. When Eddie calls the immigration office, Louis appears on stage to show how the wider community can easily strip him of his reputation, as they did with Vinny Bolzano. As reputation is so important to their society, taking away his reputation is like taking away his masculinity. Names are important in A View from a Bridge, and Miller uses names in order to show the masculinity of the characters. Respect and names are used interchangeably at the beginning of Act 2 Eddie states: ‘I want my respect!’ thrice.
Friar is saying that he broke the severest laws by marrying Romeo and Juliet without the consent of their parents leading him to believe he is responsible for everything. The quote, "We live in a culture of blame. People will blame anyone or anything for their misery sooner than take the responsibility to own it and make it better." by Dr. Henry Cloud and Dr. John Townsend. This applies to the story not by Friar blaming himself but Friar believes that Romeo and Juliet and even their families believe that he is the whole reason for all this misery.Friar stating this causes a ripple in the tone because no one would ever think they would be hearing a priest say this.

When Huck was going to send a letter to Ms. Watson, Jim’s owner, Huck was deciding if he would do it or not. “I felt good and all washed clean of sin for the first time I had ever felt so in my life….I’d see Jim standing my watch on top of his’n, ‘stead of calling, so I could go on sleeping…and at last I struck the time I saved him by telling the men we had smallpox aboard, and he was so grateful, and said I was the best friend old Jim ever had in the world…. I studied a minute sort of holding my breath, and then says to myself: ‘All right, then, I’ll go to hell’ – and tore the letter up” (Twain 330-331). This is the first time Huck makes a decision all on his own based on his own morals and conscience.
Characters in a story are a way for the author to reach out to their audience and impact the plot, but that is not the case for Gavroche in Victor Hugo 's Les Miserables. In the book as well as in the musical movie, many people fought and died for the revolution. Although the gamin Gavroche was one of those rebels, his character did not drastically impact the story or the revolution. Gavroche was an unnecessary character in Les Miserables and proved his insignificance throughout both the book and movie. There were many men who lost the battle of the barricade by selflessly giving their lives to the cause and impacting the story; Gavroche was not one of them.
Mill workers are seen as replaceable and poor workers but they’re only seen as workers. They are not look upon as people trying to support their families or people trying to make better lives for themselves.

However, no company wants to let go of its employees because higher attrition rates lead to a negative name in the market for the company.
