Even with their differences and disagreements, each of them had this enormous respect and affection for each other. However, one of the main oppositions my thesis has is “George didn’t love Lennie”, so my question here is, if he didn’t love him or care enough, why did he rescue
A tragic hero must be fundamentally good but have a fatal flaw that ultimately leads to their downfall. McMurphy truly was a fundamentally good person.. Throughout the course of the novel, he grew to really care about the other patients on the ward. In the beginning he annoyed Nurse Ratched solely for his own benefit and entertainment. As time went on he realized he needed to stand up for the other men on the ward.
I am in agreement with Krakauer on the fact that Chris McCandless was not a sociopath because he was intelligent, socialized very well, and was able to take care of himself, but he did have his flaws. Being able to be independent, his achievements and his friends all prove the “outcast bush causality” stereotype wrong. Since Chris was a human, he did have his faults. In some cases they were extreme, but they were rooted from an anger that makes it hard to label as “sociopath”. In the end, however, his stubbornness and tendency to dream big left him for dead.
He was well known and seemingly loved by almost all the people he came across. Slowly, his relationships and strong bonds with people begin to deteriorate. “Besides, this Duncan hath borne his faculties so meek, hath been so clear in his great office, that his virtues will plead like angels, trumpet-tongued, against the deep damnation of his taking-off” (Shakespeare Act I Scene VII). Macbeth even begins to disregard the current king, through his reign has been good and beneficial to everyone. That doesn’t matter to him, he feels as if he will do better.
Someone who thinks about what his/her actions would do to the group as a whole and not just a fraction of the group. Jackson did what he believed was right. He never really listened to what other people had to say about the subject, he just did what he thought best. Jackson was a very well liked person among the common people and people from different age, class and color went to see his inauguration. But the upper class didn’t like his ways.
In Robinsons letter to the president he addressed how the world just keeps saying be patient and then wouldn’t do anything, he called out the president on how he isn’t helping everyone, he is hurting everyone. (Robinson, letter) and (Wilson,web). Robinson’s impact on society portrayed his legacy as a great one and made people realize that he was a hero, but also that everyone can be a hero. Jackie Robinson truly has left an impact as the man who broke the color barrier. Withstanding all hate that was thrown at him and doing it while keeping a smile on his face and inspiring others.
“As awful as he could be, I always knew he loved me in a way no one else ever had” (Walls 279). She had to find the redeeming quality of her father, Rex and love him for that because he always loved her in an indescribable way. Loving her father at his worst, meant crying and being upset when he resulted back to drinking, abused her mother, and acted like a very mean person. One of the greatest examples of forgiveness in The Glass Castle, was when Jeannette wanted her father to stop drinking. She cared about him enough, to want him to stay in the world alcohol-free.
John’s portrays honor throughout The Crucible in his loyalty, the good he gives to others and he's a good husband. The Crucible teaches readers to stick to what they believe in, even if others disagree. John died, but with honor because he did not let others change his mind. Like John Proctor risks his life to say what he believes in, others from around the world protest what they believe in even though some get thrown in
He cannot be blamed for treating Lennie badly just from a few words throughout the book. Readers forget the fact that, not only did George take care of Lennie, but he also loved him with a bond stronger than friendship. It is clear that George has Lennie’s best interests in his mind, which can be seen in his use of harsh language, his silencing of Lennie, and his murder of Lennie. Transition here. George is often blamed
“Remember the difference between a boss and a leader: a boss says go- a leader says let’s go”-E. M. Kelly. Macbeth (written by Shakespeare) is seen as a good leader by most of the people that have read the poem because he is brave and courageous. Machiavelli’s The Prince, would disagree with people’s idea of Macbeth being a good leader because he has morals and no ambition for violence. Everyone thinks they have morals till the want something. Machiavelli 's idea of morals is if you really want something you won’t care about morals in order to obtain it.
