Tom is called to testify for a falsely accused man that has been charged with murder, and Tom was at the site, unnoticed when it happened. With the true murderer in the courtroom, Tom "was badly scared" (Twain 214) and conflicted on whether or not to tell the whole story, knowing that Injun Joe would without a doubt, kill him. "Tom began-hesitatingly at first" (Twain 216) and decided to put the wellbeing and condition of the falsely accused man before his own safety and life. Understandably, Tom only hesitated because he was very nervous and traumatized by the whole situation, as any 11-year-old boy should
Jonas feel sad and misunderstood for the boy in war. Jonas sadly understood that no one know what he is feeling. These are like real life because some careless people don 't think about others and think that everything is just a joke. For example aborted a baby and people who play war games and don’t care about real war that is happening on like the Syrian civil war. Besides in the novel Jonas realized that the community is living in a bad way and these
Cassie got fed up with it and said ¨I think you forgot, but you was waiting on us ´fore you was waiting on this girl here, and we been waiting a good while now for you to get back.¨ Just think, you were in a store looking at guns and the person working kept skipping this little girl next to you. You see her open her mouth and say that. I don 't know about you but I would be astonished. A nine year old girl saying... that? She 's gotta be pretty brave.
In the short story, “The Scarlet Ibis” by James Hurst, the narrator is static and stays selfish throughout the entire story. In the beginning of the story, the narrator finds out his brother isn’t “normal” so he threatens and brainstorms ways to kill him; “It was bad enough having an invalid brother… so I began to make plans to kill him.” The narrator was so self centered and couldn’t handle not getting the “normal” brother he wanted, he was going to end his life. In the middle of the story, the narrator says, “ I was so embarrassed at having a brother who couldn’t walk so I set out to teach him.” He only wanted to teach him to walk for himself, he didn’t even care how hard it would be for his brother or if he wanted to walk. Although when
But now his father was not showing sympathy by the way he reacted to the was his son walked into the room of his parents screaming at the top of his lungs. His father shouting at him to get him to notice his mistake then ripped the tape out of his head with anger, pulling 60 hairs out of his scalp. And after all of that, he decided to make the situation worse to start disciplining his son by hitting. This to me shows how none of the charters in the story show sympathy and are all selfish. If I was in the father 's son shows being screamed at and also being hurt I would feel desperate, hopeless, but jealous.
I agree that the conflict between Lee Strunk and Dave Jensen alludes to future conflict between soldiers; however, I believe this conflict also reveals the degraded mindframe that these soldiers endured during the war. Like you pointed out, Jensen becomes wildly unstable after the fight. O’Brien even claims that, “The distinction between good guys and bad guys disappeared for him” (63). Jensen believed he couldn’t even trust his own ally. He would have restless nights and would break down, all because he believed Strunk would kill him over a measly broken nose.
The narrator was disappointed and upset because his brother was different, the narrator wanted a normal brother; however, throughout the short story the narrator’s negative attitude starts to change. In the beginning of the The Scarlet Ibis, the narrator is upset that his brother is abnormal; also, the narrator feels embarrassed. The narrator stated “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” (Hurst 485). This quotation shows the narrator’s disappointment and cruelty towards his brother. The narrator is very cruel because he is willing to kill his brother because he is disabled.
He is described as a hardworking, strict and serious man who fears to become anything like his father, Unoka - who is described as a lazy and a coward, yet a gentle person ("And so Okonkwo was ruled by one passion - to hate everything that his father Unoka had loved. One of those things was gentleness and another was idleness. ", Achebe, page 10). Okonkwo is also described as hot tempered man, as his three wives and eight children fears his temper. When Okonkwo commits the crime of accidentally killing a boy (he had already committed the crime of beating one his wives on Week of Peace), he is exiled from his tribe for seven years.
They had lots of disscusions on the beastie and the fear towards the beatie was too immense for the boys. They were slowly forgetting about the outside world once the boy considered the dead parachutist as the beastie and not as a parachutist. Chapter 8 1. Why do the boys refuse to vote for Jack as chief but slip off to join him later? The boys were afraid to say no to Ralph.
Some of them gave up their hopes, while others cried out for current safety, other than tomorrow’s smile. They might die the next day, or a second later, this fear crushed them down and made them tremble and burst into tears. Fathers, boyfriends, and brothers left their lovings behind and headed to the bloody zone with firm and cold face. They attached their nation’s flags on their hearts and confronted the enemies with murderous weapons, not knowing that their enemy might also be one of the people who were forced to leave their families. Men had to kill the other men unwillingly.
