Her ability to save Holden is recognized when he states metaphorically, “I don’t want you to get the idea she was a goddam icicle or something” (79). Going along with the motif of vision, Holden is unable to see that an icicle girl, who is still moving and not a frozen fish, is exactly what he needs. Nevertheless, his continued practice of never explaining himself is symbolized when he pretends he has a bullet in his guts and keeps his hand under his jacket “to keep the blood from dripping” (150). He wants to call Jane, but realizes he isn’t “much in the mood” for it (150). It’s important to note that Jane alone cannot save Holden or else she would actually been in the book.

Mama’s conflict with Walter is very important to the plot because, if Mama would have let Walter use the money to invest into the liquor store then the whole plot of the play would change. Over all in the play A Raisin in the Sun by Lorrain Hansberry the two characters Ruth and Mama play the biggest role in helping develop the plot of the
His treatment of Myrtle suggests no deep emotional investment either, as is showcased when he casually breaks her nose with “…a short deft movement” (Fitzgerald 41). He calls for her when it suits him, lies to her, and exerts physical dominance when she becomes inconveniently demanding. He has no desire to be close to his mistress; she is merely the means by which he avoids being close to his wife. Similarly, Daisy’s fear of intimacy, though as intense, is not quite as immediately apparent. Indeed, her marital fidelity, until her affair with Gatsby, and her distress over Tom’s involvement with Myrtle might suggest to some readers that Daisy desires emotional intimacy with her husband.
Huckleberry Finn is the perfect bildungsroman novel, but it does not complete the hero’s archetype. In a perfect world Huck would have returned to society, spreading his story and how to overcome to social implication that is slavery. Unfortunately, Huck does not return to spread his new philosophy, but instead turns to the west so that his Aunt Sally can not civilize him. This is definitely an odd ending; most novels end with the hero returning to their family or teaching others how to live the way the hero has months. The hero typically scatters their story and morals out to others, but Huck does not.

She then takes on compatibilism, which continues to assign blame even after admitting (hypothetically) to determinism. According to Fried, this is an old problem, and she references Jonathan Edwards to show what is wrong with it. Fried ultimately argues that compatibilism does not give a standardized basis for assigning blame, however she first gives an example of a bus driver that, even after exercising all proper care, is unfortunate enough to hit a child with his bus. Author believes we would blame this person, and this is unfair because when things happen so quickly, no one would be able to change their path to avoid the child (pg6).
