“I done it!” The school stared in perplexity at this incredible folly. Tom stood a moment, to gather his dismembered facilities; and when he stepped forward to go to his punishment the surprise, the gratitude, the adoration that shone on him out of poor Becky’s eyes seemed pay enough for a hundred floggings” (page 127). This is an example of how he treats Becky better and how he earned her admiration by taking her punishment for tearing the teacher’s book. Tom wouldn’t have done that at the beginning of the book when they fight and that shows a gradual change taking place. His braveness and chivalry, however, represents a more mature version of the meaning of concern for others and helping them out when Tom refuses to give up looking for the way out of the cave.
This insight highlights Mr. Chiu’s egotistical confidence of going free and his gull to demand a “letter of apology” from the chief of the bureau. Moreover, Chiu’s self-absorbed thoughts are exposed when he realizes that his “bookworm” wife sent an amateur lawyer to rescue him. Reluctantly, he signs the confession, and Mr. Chui’s suppressed anger is revealed when he thinks to himself, “If he were able to, he would have razed the entire police station and eliminated all their families.” After ironically rescuing his lawyer Fenjin from a wrongful imprisonment and public torture, the two men travel “from restaurant to restaurant near the police

In Stephen King 's "Rita Hayworth and the Shawshank Redemption," a man known as Red tells the story of Andy Dufresne. The authorities arrested Andy for a crime he did not commit and as a result, he ended up in the Shawshank penitentiary with Red. Red described how prison life could take away all hope of surviving on the outside, but for some reason, it did not take Andy 's hope. Red pondered at the fact that Andy was full of hope for many years. His pondering would cease when Andy broke out of jail in a hole he had dug through the wall.
In this way he shows a beautiful side of his morality, as he could, corresponding to SS, just take another dozen Jews to his factory and in that way treat them not as people, but as equal copies. Conversely, he did only save his workers from the cattle cars and was blind to the thousands of other people taking their last trip before execution. At least his workers could trust
The Newspaper he reads is “flipped [...] with a paperknife” (Mansfield 56); at any rate someone that plays so casually with a tool linked to death [OR dangerous tools??? OR with a tool not made to flip objects] is to be seen as selfreliant. In addition to that, his calm way of showing a certain status symbol is underlined by the way he “lovingly show[s]” and offers Mr. Woodifield whiskey (Mansfield 57). The description of “retired”, “old” Mr Woodifield as he “pipes” and “quavers” accompanied with his comparison made to a baby in the first paragraph (Mansfield 56) allows one to get a much more sophisticated picture of the Boss at the beginning. Bateson and Shahevitch interestingly observe the fact that Mr Woodifield “was dressed and
This quote shows, how Tom is trying to changed Ben’s perspective of work in Ben’s mind, implanting the idea that whitewashing could actually be something fun. Later as the story comes to an end, author uses inner thinking to support the theme, show resolution, and Tom’s motivation. As the excerpt ends, Tom deceived all of the neighborhood boys to do his bidding, without them realizing. Another example is, in the text it says, “If he hadn’t run out of whitewash he would have bankrupted every boy in the village. Tom said to himself that it was not such a hollow world, after all”.
This clearly demonstrates the Politics and Power motif because it shows how Brutus is so anxious to gain power that he jumps up as soon as he is wanted by the people. He is losing all of his honorable traits, including the ones he earned in his political position as senator, by going against his fellow senator, Caesar. This affects the work as a whole because of the themes of the play, ambition, and conflict, have a strong impact on what Shakespeare is ultimately trying to express between the main characters. Ambition has an effect on the plot because Caesar is a very ambitious man. This alone and the numerous letters Brutus has been receiving leads him to think that he is no good for Rome, Caesar’s ambition worries Brutus.

Theme 1.1: Envy. In Knowles’s coming of age book, “A Separate Peace”, there are lots of mishaps that happen and the beginning of these mishaps is when one of his main characters, Gene, starts thinking malicious things about Phineas, his friend. It started out as a small inkling of envy, suddenly later on in the book, it turned into something that resembled a fractious disaster. As the chapters progress, Gene shows the readers his way of thinking towards Phineas, by describing his “unexpected excitement” (27) when Phineas was about to receive a scolding from Mr. Patch-Wither, the substitute headmaster of Devon during the summer session. Surprisingly, when Phineas (aka Finny) further explained why he wore the school tie as a belt, his illogical
Nevertheless, ultimately and inadvertently he revealed the truth. After writing an earlier version of “Swimming Holes,” I presented the narrative to my father-in-law. While he read the composition, I watched for a reaction and he didn’t disappoint me. A smirk came over his face, followed by a verbalization of his thoughts, “We stood up stark naked and waved at the trains. We didn’t know any better.” Since our storyteller, always linked the seemingly separate Halloween capers together and included his participation in recounting the incident at the outhouse, I’ve suspected his involvement in the church bell prank.
