The movie ‘Fences’ has three main characters: Troy Maxson, Cory Maxson, and Rose Maxson. However, I believe characters such as Lyons Maxson, Jim Bono, and Gabriel Maxson play extremely important roles in the movie also. Therefore, I will speak on all six.

Anthony Wayne, best known as Mad Anthony for his aggressive way of fighting, was a general who leads the American military in 1792. He was a member of the United States House of Representatives. Mad Anthony was an important figure in history because he was a general who lead his militia to the Battle of Fallen Timbers which derived in the removal of Native American claims.

His favorite spot to pick up boys was bus stations. If they did not willingly get into Gacy’s car he would use chloroform and force them in to the car. When he got them home he would “perform a magic trick”, the magic trick was with handcuffs and the victims ended up eventually being handcuffed to either a chair or a bed and that’s when Gacy would start raping them. In attempts to prevent neighbors from hearing his victim screaming he would shove things such as articles of clothing into their mouth. Once Gacy was finished with them he would strangle them or shove the clothing further down the victim’s throat until they stopped breathing. His favorite way to murder is victim was to tie a tourniquet around their neck and then sit there and watch the die slowly. Not every one of his victims were murdered, some of them he let go and a few of them escaped (Gacy 's Murders Consisted of Thirty Three Murders,
He obviously carried this violent nature into his adulthood on a much larger scale and thought of his actions as acceptable. The fact that Gacy dressed as a clown clearly portrays that he learned these behaviors from a young age because being a clown is a childhood symbol. This reflects directly on what he was doing as an adult because here he had switched roles in a situation involving the molestation of a child. You can easily see the correlation between his childhood experiences and his reversed role adulthood actions. One personality disorder pertaining to Gacy was sociopathic. This is defined as "breaking rules and laws, takes advantage of other people for personal gain, feels little remorse or guilt, appears friendly and charming on the surface, and is often intelligent." John Wayne Gacy was doing all of the above. He lured children and employees into his car, being charming on the surface, and his friendly neighbor said that he was very intelligent and brilliant. Another disorder relating to him is borderline. He had very unstable relationships, starting with his father-son affair. Also, his wife had divorced him and his relationships were short term and very meaningless. He was very impulsive with his actions and was unpredictable with his sexual behaviors, considering he managed to rape 33 people. John Gacy was organized, which shocked many on their psychoanalysis of the crazed killer. This could be evidence to prove he was not insane. Personally, we believe that

Gold and money, a light in the dark, or a warning on the road; the color yellow has many diverse meanings in society and these are just a few. In The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald colors represent several aspects of the characters as they are swept through rollicking emotions powered by the mystery shrouding the enigmatic Jay Gatsby in the height of the Roaring Twenties. Yellow gives insight into Gatsby’s character, who he wants to be, who he is in truth, and who others think he is.

In F. Scott Fitzgerald’s masterpiece of literature “The Great Gatsby”, the eponymous character is shown to be an eccentric man with a shrouded past, which only becomes revealed to the reader in the final third portion of the book. Through his past, and many other subtleties laced into the book by Fitzgerald, it is heavily hinted at that Gatsby himself is African-American, being pale enough to pass as a white man in West Egg. The inklings of this idea are planted through this novel, both overt and symbolic, such as the geography laid out by Fitzgerald and characters’ placement in that, character interactions between Gatsby and harsh racists like Tom Buchanan, and Gatsby’s past that got him to West Egg and found him his fortune. Gatsby being black was a very hidden yet powerful statement by Fitzgerald on the upward mobility of African-Americans during the 1920’s when racism and racial violence were becoming extremely prevalent, and the lengths these people had to go to to achieve that mobility, with no guaranteed success.
A man reads a newspaper article, in which somebody sharing his name is convicted of a serious crime and is sentenced to life in prison. The convict shares the name, is close in age, and grew up in the same town as the, now very curious, reader. The reader, a man named Wes Moore, is struck by this story, and couldn’t quite shake it off after a few years. He decides to write a book. In Wes Moore’s The Other Wes Moore, the convict Wes hadn’t had many good influences in his life; his father wanted nothing to do with him, his brother was a drug dealer, and only one of his friends would graduate from high school; he lived a life unfortunately all too common. His mother and brother tried to lead him away from “that life”, at least for a while, but Wes became involved with drug dealing, teen pregnancy, and eventually dropped out of school. But before being arrested he seemed to start to take hold of his life, he completed his GED near the top of his class, and started to build a house for his daughter. He was not
