In The Scarlet Ibis, the author revealed finally the real feelings of Brother toward his brother Doodle. During the whole incidents of the short story, Brother is not accepting Doodle as a brother because of the abnormality which Doodle suffered from and so Brother feels ashamed. The last scene in the short story is so tragic. The scene is portrayed as Brother returned back to Doodle who was found dead, having bled from the mouth and his neck is covered in blood. The act of crying and screaming by Brother for the death of his brother Doodle is a pure tragic scene and by such scene the reader makes the readers feel that Brother loves his brother Doodle and for such love he tried to protect him from an outside world.
The plot and conflict reveal the theme by conveying the question of why people injure loved ones. During the conflict of the story, the narrator abandons Doodle to try to help him by leaving him behind to learn to catch up on his own but the opposite happens, and Doodle collapses and perishes. The narrator admitted that “at times [he] was
He developed a deep love for the noble, albeit impoverished, family. Seeking some kind of human relationship, to be more accurate, just any kind of contact, he first tried to talk to the oldest family member as he was blind and the monster knew that his hideous physiognomy, excites not only disgust but more so fear. However, the other members of the family returned unexpectedly, and drove him with stones from the cottage. Upon this, the monsters sorrow increased, and he cursed his creator and his own hideousness. Thus, his thirst for revenge on Victor, whose whereabouts he had discovered from the laboratory notebooks.
Doodle I screamed above the pounding storm and threw my body to the earth above his.”(L 390-392) After leaving Doodle, he finally regains his conscience, and goes back for him, sadly, he realised his mistake too late. Although, the present older brother, clearly regrets his acts and now that he understands everything about life, he regrets not loving Doodle the way he should have. In the end, the love between the two brothers is complex and paradoxical, their relationship goes from hatred to love, unfortunately due to pride the relationship between them ended
“For a long time, it seemed forever, I lay there crying, sheltering my fallen scarlet ibis from the heresy of rain.” (page 6). These are the parting words of James Hearst from his short story, The Scarlet Ibis. The line describes the moment in which the narrator cradles the body of his dead brother, William Armstrong, more commonly known as Doodle. In the story, Doodle dies of a combination of a heart condition, fatigue, pneumonia, and the Spanish flu. He is sickly and frail at birth, and is told, “with his weak heart this strain [learning how to crawl] would probably kill him.” (page 1).
In the short story, “The Scarlet Ibis” written by James Hurst, creates a story about a boy named Doodle who was born with disabilities and his brother makes plans to kill him. In paragraph 5 on the first page of the story, Hurst writes, “It was bad enough having an invalid brother, but having one who possibly was not all there was unbearable, so I began to make plans to kill him by smothering him with a pillow.” This clearly makes readers think that the narrator wants him dead, and the narrator isn’t grateful for what kind of brother he has. This clearly brings up that it was the narrator 's fault that Doodle died. He left Doodle out in the storm on purpose and ran away, the narrator had plans to kill him earlier on in the story, and everyone expected Doodle to die right when he was born. In the beginning of the story, Hurst writes , “Doodle was just about the craziest brother a boy ever had.” “He was born when I was six and was, from the outset, disappointment.
“‘It ain’t right Atticus.’ said Jem. ‘No son, it’s not right.’” This is an excerpt from the popular story, To Kill A Mockingbird. During this dialogue, Jem’s tears are streaming down his red, angry face as his father Atticus is wearily acknowledging the unjust outcome of the trial of Tom Robinson to his son. This is an excellent example of the loss of innocence in the novel, where Jem is faced with the harsh reality that innocent, good people can be victims of vicious racism. Other examples include Jem’s loss of innocence by Mrs. Dubose, Boo’s loss of innocence by his father, and Scout, Dill, and Jem’s loss of innocence by Dolphus Raymond.
The evidence is undeniable. Doodle's brother was extremely cruel to him from the time Doodle was born. One would think that Doodle's disability would be more than enough reason for his brother to feel sympathy for Doodle; not this brother. Doodle's brother was so hateful toward Doodle that he stated his desire to smother Doodle with a pillow. Doodle's brother also showed his cruel, ill feelings for his disabled brother, Doodle, by showing him the casket which the family built
He has no idea that his best friend is going to bury him alive. The irony in this situation lies in the fact that Montresor says that he is worried about his friend's health, even though he intends to kill this so called “friend.” Edgar Allan Poe masters the art of verbal irony, and “The Cask of Amontillado” is crammed full of it. The use of verbal irony only strengthens the story. Because of Poe's dark and depressing history, he is able to masterfully explore the deep places of the human conscience. His experiences and his mastery of verbal irony create a twisted mangle of dark layers that truly make this story a gripping
In Voltaire’s tale, Candide travels across the known world witnessing the horrific brutalities that humans commit against one another in the name of religion, power, or simple greed having seen and experienced this violence, which puts into doubt Candide’s doubts his belief that live is good and has a purpose--------. Candide decides that he and his friends must cultivate their gardens. Throughout his writings Cadide repeats his contention that "we must cultivate our gardens" (149). This issue of excessive optimism is of particular importance when it comes to creativity where a sense of possibility is essential---------- All learning is developmental and requires that we accelerate the failure cycle if we hope to master a new skill.
