At first, Gene doesn 't really think the war is that serious, and throws the idea of enlisting around lightly. This is because at Devon, the boys are privileged to be excluded from the truth of the war and its negative effects. This changes when someone dear to Gene, Leper, experiences the army. Leper is ruined after his experience in the war, and is traumatized forever by what he has seen. Gene begins to understand just how harmful the war is, and the worst part is him as well as the rest of the boys are constantly reminded of their possibility to be drafted into the army.“The class above, seniors, draft-bait, practically soldiers, rushed ahead of us toward the war.

Wealth was an inferior object, but what glory would attend the discovery if i could banish disease from the human frame
About this hermetic life, one might argue that it is Ambrosio 's 'incarceration in the monastery [that taught] him progressively to devalue other lives '7. Lewis even specifies to us that 'have his youth been passed in the world, he would have shown himself possessed of many brilliant and manly qualities '8, but unfortunately, spending his childhood with monks has made him the wicked man that we know, because 'while the monks were busied in rooting out his virtues, and narrowing his sentiments, they allowed every vice which had fallen to his share, to arrive at full perfection.

As a result, he musters up both feelings to fit in his social environment and his own interests. Alden Nowlan develops the idea that individuals with a strong personal desire, but are stricken by the need to conform, may feel unsure to follow their own interests or to comply by the social norm. Stephen, a young boy working as a pulp cutter, develops both a need and want to become a “man” like everyone else within the bunkhouse. He desperately needs to become man a due to his harsh environment. The weather he endures always rises to a “gale force” every night and the bunkhouse interior is best described as “sour”.
He was held above the rest, and this is proven in one of the first scenes of the book. As Hester is above the townspeople on a scaffold, Dimmesdale, Governor Wilson, and others are still above her. But, as the reader soon discovers, Arthur Dimmesdale is his own worst enemy. It is unknown until the end but he is actually the father of Hester’s child.

The excerpts from Dick Gregory's novel were very inspirational. When he was young he felt embarrassed for being poor and his teacher was cruel. When he grew up, despite being a well known athlete, he still had to negotiate for rights that everyone else took for granted. I learned how traumatizing it can be for someone to grow up in this hostile environment. It was surprising and disturbing to see how much racism and poverty affected him as a child.
