The reader is taken on a journey with the protagonist where Red faces copious challenges and disappointment from his friends. All his peers wanted to help him be who he is “supposed” to be – red. They all had their own opinion. Maybe he was broken, maybe his label was too tight, maybe he was not sharp enough. They tried to help by giving him advice, setting up play dates with other crayons, nevertheless, nothing seemed to work.
“He was born completely and utterly without luck, January 1, 1990” (Harold 1). Eddie’s bad luck has left him accepting his bad luck, although he was a little frustrated with it at first. For example, “His luckless state kept away the pretty girls. Before they could sit beside him, someone else always grabbed the seat” (Harold 1). After Eddie met Mara, he gets a voicemail from here, stating that he has left his credit card with her tissues.
The novel states,” Montag moved back… checker mildred, tucked the covers about her carefully, and then lay down with the moonlight…” (Bradberry 15). This also shows just how much montag still cares for mildred even though she gives little effort back toward him. This relates back to the theme of the novel, the decay of human relationships. Montag and mildred’s relationship is decaying because of technology and poor decisions. To summarize, Urban’s song “you’ll think of me”, closely connected with the theme of the novel, Fahrenheit
For instance, Salinger mentions, “I get bored sometimes when people tell me to act my age. Sometimes I act a lot older than I am-I really do-but people never notice it. People never notice anything” (9). Salinger adds how people ‘never notice anything’ to Holden’s feelings because Holden is a boy, whom his parents don’t take care of, which sparks Holden’s feelings of no one even caring and noticing him. As identified in the beginning of the Novel Stradlater opens Holden’s feelings with dialogue which reveals “my parents were occupied and all that crap…” (1).
And the way Prometheus gained his individuality is by first experiencing total “Brainwash”, in a sense, because he never ever had thoughts of individuality, everyone around him used “Plural First Person” and never any “ First Person Singular”. They addressed another person as “we”, and for a group of people as “us”. They have no for of individuality, and have known none since birth by the seems of it. He then discovered something that inspired him to learn more, and by learning more, he gained more knowledge than the rest of his so called “Brothers”. Then he meets the “Golden One” and they then start to communicate.
At the last day, the host’s wife even lies next to Sir Gawain and basically asks him if he wants her. “I come here alone, and sit To learn your special play: Show me your expertise While my husband is away.” (Winny 87). A person never knows what exactly she meant, but when they are talking about love and alone, the statement can be mistaken into so many immoral ways. However, he answers that he does not want anyone right then. Any other knight in the period would take advantage of that situation, but Sir Gawain does not.
None of the good, if there were any. The idea of war was only ideal to the young boys, and that changed throughout the course of the book. The war is frowned upon by some people, Irene Hunt, as an example. First, the letters that the boys in the war wrote were never positive. They always mentioned the awful things about the war, “Things was awful bad with so many kilt and others froze.” (Hunt, 51) Some acted as if they were forced into the war.
He thinks of everyone as phonies when he himself is phony as well. Holden has many struggles, but they are all mostly formed by his inability to grow up. He believes that everyone is pure and innocent as a child, but they lose their perfection when they grow up. This causes more problems for him, as he believes he cannot grow up either. If Holden were to move to Kwajalein he could put aside all of his struggles and live a full life as a Kwaj
No matter how hard Gatsby tried to be worthy of Daisy, there were always lies and “foul dust float[ing] in the wake of his dreams” that kept them apart. Ultimately, this same dust killed him in the form of George Wilson who was living in the ash. At the conclusion of the book, Nick reflects on Gatsby’s continued hopeful attitude up to the very end of his life. However, as Nick writes, the different punctuation suggests he is slowly realizing what his experiences with Gatsby really mean. The incomplete thought of “And one fine morning--” is when Nick finally understands that no matter how fast we run or how far we stretch out our arms, everyone’s green light will continue to diminish (Fitzgerald 189).
“Why didn’t you pay it before?” “ I was pretty sick about that. I waited too long to help another man”(6). This ending was not expected in the beginning, however there was a little of foreshadowing towards it. One example of it is when the teacher made a rude comment and no one stood up for him just a few tears from his crush. It is a periodic ending because we didn’t really know where he was going with the story, it wasn’t until the end that we fully understood that he was talking about standing up for
