He was a great man who obviously cared about his friends and family. Angela Minor, who was an army buddy of Private Dwyer’s, described him as “a guy who would change your oil and check your tires unasked and pick you up by your broken-down car at 3 a.m.”. Another friend is Dionne Knapp, she was a single mother that was in army as well. When Ms. Knapp was called up to be deployed, Private Dwyer took her place so that she would not have to be separated from her children. This is just one of many kind acts that Joseph would do for people.
As the leader, he is supposed to be an able leader who provides his troops with concise instructions to gain a substantial and measurable advantage over their enemy. Nonetheless, the nature of the war in Vietnam makes this leadership impossible considering the fact the goals of the war are obfuscated and undefined. Similar to the operations of the war, Lt. Cross shows inadequacy in fulfilling his role. Moreover, Cross is a powerless leader because he underwent the traditional training that focused on following standard operating procedures that had been pre-decided, rather than adapting to the current environment. Lt. Cross’s other character shortcoming is his emotional and personal inability to lead the Alpha Company.
If only I could get rid of this dead weight, so that I could use all my strength to struggle for my own survival, and only worry about myself,’ I immediately felt ashamed of myself, ashamed forever,” (Wiesel, 111). This is just one example of the internal conflict going on endlessly within himself. When thinking of family, there are good times and bad times. When experiencing the moments that are extremely difficult for Elie and his father, he often thinks how great life would be if he could just get rid of his father’s dead weight. One evening when Elie’s father is very ill, the had of the block approaches Elie and tells him, “‘Don’t forget your in a concentration camp.
In the story written by Tim O’Brien called “The Things They Carried”, he tells a story set during a war about the evolution of young soldiers as their mindset is affected by what they see and feel. The soldiers each carry physical and emotional weights that allow them to keep their humanity but in war, the same things that are valued in the outside world become a distraction and potentially fatal. While Martha is not physically fighting the mind with them she is subconsciously in the mind of Lieutenant Cross. Martha represents everything war is not, she represents innocence, love, and affection, that to him is a way to get away from what’s going on around him. Martha is described as a very artistic person; she is a junior at Saint Sebastian college and in the letters Lieutenant cross carries with him she writes in a very beautiful way about trivial things like her professors, roommates and her midterm exams.
As she passes Montag, she repeatedly says “poor family” and “everything’s gone”. Rather than caring about Montag who was about to be killed for having books, she is more worried about her walls and her ‘family’ being burned. Bradbury uses techniques such as repetition, extended sentences, and a distraught tone of voice to establish Mildred’s unhappiness. Ultimately, Ray Bradbury adequately examines the recurring theme of the repression of authentic human relationships through his use of extensive literary
Such passion is seen in Victor’s ‘noble intent’ to design a being that could contribute to society, but he had overextended himself, falling under the spell of playing ‘God,’ further digging his grave as he is blinded by glory. His creation – aptly called monstrous being due to its stature, appearance, and strength – proved to be more of a pure and intellectually disposed ‘child’ that moves throughout the novel as a mere oddity, given the short end of the stick in relation to a lack of familial figures within his life, especially that of parents. Clearly, Victor Frankenstein had sealed his fate: by playing God he was losing his humanity, ultimately becoming the manifestation of Mary Shelley’s hidden desires, deteriorating into The Lucifer Principle by which the author Howard Bloom notes social groups, not individuals, as the primary “unit of selection” in human psychological
But his plan just ends up backfiring on him, alienating him from the court and getting him sent away. In fact, people become even more suspicious of him. Subsequently, he continues with his thoughts of death in the most famous soliloquy in the play. He asks himself if being alive while suffering is better than being dead, going on to compare death “to sleep / no more- and by a sleep to say we end / the heartache, and the thousand natural shocks / that flesh is heir to! ‘Tis a consummation / devoutly to be wished” (3.1.60-64).
Enpiezo I ask that you do, to stop, I start to scream from the pain I feel when the knife fits leg. Just cry and cry to stop until my throat feel sore from screaming and then nothing, I feel nothing. Tears they keep out and just do nothing. "It's for your own good" only I hear his footsteps away and the sound of a door open and shut and then again darkness, remembering everything that just happened. Day 6: Because only this happens to me I thought?
In the first Act she states, “Come, you spirits That tend on mortal thoughts, unsex me here, And fill me from the crown to the toe top-full Of direst cruelty. Make thick my blood. Stop up the access and passage to remorse, That no compunctious visitings of nature Shake my fell purpose, nor keep peace between The effect and it” (I, v, 30-37). This speech she gives is crucial to her character development in the beginning of the play. What she is saying in this speech is that she is tired of her husband being weak and wishes that she could be a man.
As John’s mother was dying, “He felt the hot tears welling up behind his eyelids as he recalled the words and Linda’s voice as she repeated them” (Huxley 201). John was about to cry because he was sad that his mother was dying, which no one in the World State could understand because death was such a normal thing for them that no one got bent up over. While John’s mother is dying, he gets angry because little boys are talking about his mother in an awful way. “The Savage had seized him by the collar, lifted him clear over the chair and, with a smart box on the ears, sent him howling away” (Huxley 202). We see here, that John acts upon his anger and has the ability to be angry, whereas people of the World State would take soma to calm themselves down.
