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
In the novel, The Book of Three, written by Lloyd Alexander, Taran is a hero, even though he did not defeat The Horned King by himself. Taran is a hero because he is able to keep the companions together throughout their journey, and for his ability to take the blame for his wrong doings. For example, when Gurgi injured himself, he begged Taran to kill him, saying, “‘Now Gurgi’s head must be chopped off’ (Alexander 124)”, but Taran refused. Taran had compassion on Gurgi, and allowed him to ride Melyngar, knowing full well that it would slow their pace. In addition, Taran decided to continue to help the group and not stay in the valley with Medwyn.
Alexander pouring the water explains why he was great because even though his men had given him water, he refused to drink it, for his men were just as thirsty as he was. Allowing the cities to surrender explains why he was great because it shows that he wasn’t a harsh leader that just seizes control, he lets the city decide to surrender in return for kindness. In conclusion, Alexander the Great was a strong, skilled leader. Alexander the Great did show some qualities of a bad leader.

For the metaphor the most important was “Ahead of you lies a long road paved with suffering”(Wiesel,41). One of the guards used this metaphor to tell the prisoners how truly awful their time in camp will be, infinite and very painful. Lastly, the most significant hyperbole was “We went off to work as usual, our bodies frozen”(Wiesel,78). Of course, there bodies weren’t actually frozen, but they might as well be. The conditions in the camp were so poor that they had little to no ways to keep themselves warm in the winter, which is portrayed in this hyperbole.
I bade the gentlemen welcome”. After the murder, the narrator acted calm and surprisingly sane, meeting the police officers without any suspicious clue of concern or nervousness. “ In the enthusiasm of my confidence, I brought chairs into the room, and desired them here to rest from their fatigues, while I myself, in the wild audacity of my perfect triumph, placed my own seat upon the very spot beneath which reposed the corpse of the victim”. However, as the conversation with police progressed the narrator began to feel nervous little bit by little to the point his hearing the sound of the old man’s heartbeat.” I talked more quickly—more vehemently; but the noise steadily increased”, which possibly could be his imagination as well as his guiltiness leading him to faced his emotional
He is one of the most mature people I know, and in turn has lost his innocence due to the harshness of the world. Therefore, as a lawyer, he argues for what is just and will adhere to it.

Throughout the story, it shows that Haemon doesn 't believe in his father 's choices. Almost immediately after his father, Creon, informs him of what is to happen to Antigone, he starts to hint at his disapproval. “What sort of respect tramples on all that is holy?” is where Haemon starts to show that he does not agree with his father’s actions. Despite stating earlier on that
Tom never really had the safest or best ideas, but Huck trusted him and was loyal because that is a value he has. A counterclaim that can be made against Huck is that he also showed some bad values by not turning Jim in. At the time, there was of course slavery going on and to help a wanted slave was considered wrong and dishonest in the eyes of many people. Some may say that Huck was a dishonest person because of his choice to not turn Jim in.
While all of the other men have changed their vote to a not guilty verdict, the third jurors remains with his original belief. Even in the very end of the play, he acts hostile against the others trying to change his mind, in saying “Do you think I’m an idiot or something?” (Rose 72). One juror that seems almost impervious to argumentative fallacies and peer pressure is Juror 8. Juror almost displays the ideal juror, and the rest tend to mimic the flaws of the system.
(Drizin pg2) He also states the “Matt Livers has a low intellect ability, and people like that ten to be more compliant, more willing and eager to please their interrogators”. (Drizin pg2) Ultimately, the Reid Technique worked on Liver, but in a deviated way, after he repeatedly pronounce his innocents. I can sense the nervousness in his voice, as he started fidgeting.
Dewey closed his eyes; “ he kept them shut until he heard the thud-snap that announces a rope-broken neck” (McClain). In addition to this, Capote mentions that Dewey could find it “ possible to look at [Perry] beside him without anger,with, rather, a measure of sympathy” (Capote 246). Dewey didn’t feel that way towards Dick even though he didn 't commit the murders. Capote’s bias makes the audience feel more sympathetic towards Perry and more hatred towards Dick, even though Perry is the killer. Another reason why readers believed that Perry shouldn’t have received capital punishment is because he has a mental illness.
Juror Nine votes not guilty because he admires Juror Eight for standing alone against the majority. Once the jurors start to discuss the case again Juror Seven questions who else would have the motive to kill this boy’s father. Juror Eight rebuts by saying, “As far as I know, we’re supposed to decide whether or not the boy on trial is guilty. We’re not concerned with anyone else’s motives here” (Rose 240).
As the other jurors are yelling at him for saying that the boy could even be innocent and for showing them the evidence, Davis never lost his cool. He stood still and let them finish talking before he responded. After showing that it would take longer than 15 seconds for the neighbor to get to the door, juror 3, Angry, started to yell at him for saying that the boy had to do it. Davis responded without even raising their voice. Juror 9 didn’t feel way at one point and looked as if he was about to pass out, Davis helped him sit back down and even offered to get him water.
