“I may climb perhaps to no great heights, but I will climb alone.” The character Cyrano can be described as many different things, from being an uncomfortable man to look at, to being a hopeless romantic.

He comes off as the cool guy, the one that doesn’t let anything bother him, but in reality he has his own flaws just like everyone else.
By providing conflicting viewpoints, using irony, tying in religious references, and giving anecdotes, Schlosser proves that success is not equally attainable for every fast-food worker, but is restricted to those on top. By narrowing down his argument to the general principles of success and failure, Schlosser provokes intense emotion and understanding in the reader. He successfully teaches that success is made by the individual, but that it is generally unattainable for the common worker in the fast food industry, because the gap between those who make it and those who don’t is too large and
Pony-Boy Curtis and Randy Anderson 's conversation completely changes Pony 's perception on how things are only rough for the Greasers. Pony was always convinced that the Socs had no struggles. The first time Pont was opened to the idea was in chapter two when Cherry Valance said, "Things are rough all over." In my opinion, Pony-Boy never understood the actual meaning of that saying. Pony had accepted the stereotypes on the Greasers and the Socs, that the grasers are the average bad boys and that the Socs a rich patier.

At the end of the novella, Equality was brasher and started using the word “I” in his monologues about how everything was going to change because of the amazing thing that he discovered and did all by himself. That was wrong of Equality to do because his friends helped him along the way in his journey and did not quit on him even though they could have been killed. His friends really helped and Equality was not as sincere and grateful for them as they were for him. There was definitely a huge shift in his character traits in the last two chapters of the
Another reason why Brown was a failure was because instead of helping his men in battle he was busy ordering food. “As shots rang off the walls, John Brown quietly ordered breakfast from a hotel” (Source 14). Although food is very important to the health of people in general (not just Brown), his men’s lives should have been much more important to him. Him ordering food makes him seem selfish and as if he is a failure since he did not properly show care to his men in battle. There were many more reasons why people thought that Brown was crazy and all of the reasons have evidence to back them up.

Based on the fact that Montressor is able to indulge in fine wines and thinks highly of himself leads me to believe that he is at least of average social class. However, you can tell that people such as Fortunato still look down upon him. Montressor is an unreliable narrator because he never provides proof as to how Fortunato has “injured” him in the past and he always tries to cover up his flaws. 2. The “You” addressed in the first paragraph is the person that Montressor is recounting the murder of Fortunato to.
