He believes in no religion, feels no love, and shows no emotion. Just like he covered up his problems with alcohol, he also uses the “cover” and comfort of Catherine’s hair to escape. It’s very easy to see how Henry has focused heavily on the physical pleasures of life, especially due to his lack of feelings. Because of all this, one might come to believe Henry is indeed a static character, but I feel that is not the truth. Henry learned many lessons about life throughout the timeline of the book and I feel these are the reasons he is a dynamic character.
Ironically he does so by doing nothing. Nick Carraway’s passive nature leads to the many mishaps in the novel, which stresses the idea that not being evil does not necessarily make someone a good person. “I’m inclined to reserve all judgements” (1) Nick states at the beginning of the novel, which instantly sets up his passivity. His passiveness sparks complications early on, such as when Tom takes Nick to meet Myrtle in secret. Nick tags along because he “had nothing better to do” (24) and seems to have little qualms about the fact that Tom is cheating on Daisy openly.
Thus, in the opening lines, Meursault is “not presented as a son mourning for his mum” (Shobeiri), which is pivotal in understanding Meursault’s role as an absurd man. Before and during the vigil, “Meursault’s senselessness and indifference to everything except physical sensations are noticeable” (Shobeiri). Before the vigil, Meursault desires a cigarette, but hesitates because he is unsure as to whether he should do it in front of his dead mother or not. He decides to have the smoke after saying “it didn’t matter” (Camus 8). Meursault’s slight desire to have a smoke was more important to him than showing respect for his recently deceased mother.
Gertrude's actions and death, Claudius's lack of honesty, and Rosencrantz and Guildenstern’s betrayal, then death, also illustrate how detrimental immorality can be. Horatio is the only character who doesn't engage in any immoral actions. He doesn't betray Hamlet, he doesn't attack any of the other characters and at the end of the story he is also the only character that remains alive. Many lives are lost in the pursuit of committing the “moral” act. For example, Laertes' trap backfires on him, causing his own death.
One of the further development of Harry Potter’s character can be seen when Tom Riddle’s diary goes missing. Harry decides that he and his close friend Ron are to talk with Hagrid about the circumstance, although Harry doesn 't believe that its Hagrid. I think, this is a significant scene because generally Harry doesn 't do bad things and breaks the rules. Harry has never a problem to grab what is right or wrong. However, sometimes he breaks the rules to achieve his purposes when the issue is about his friends, beloved ones and even Hogwarts.
The details in Ivan’s life are present, but he doesn’t notice those details and goes right along with his work and card games; never showing any emotion towards practically anything in his life. Ivan demonstrates this lack of vision for details when he goes on to say, “It was a bore if it meant foregoing a card game, but if there was no game on, it was better than sitting home alone or with his wife” (83). By saying this, Ivan reveals how horribly he has taken his life for granted and how he has taken the people around him for granted
Hamlet is the neither the hero nor the villain of his story- he is simply a victim, a young man slowly losing his grip on sanity over the course of the play. Many of Hamlet 's traits may appear to be weaknesses but they are, at second glance, strengths which aid him in his attempt to do away with Claudius. His refusal to murder the "incestuous, murderous, damned Dane" as he prays in Act 3, Scene 3 was a wise decision. If the prince had indeed killed the king he would have been immediately
The patient is still in sound mind and can make his own decisions but has exhibited characteristics of continuously becoming weak and cannot effectively swallow after being affected by the stroke, and so he is very uncooperative when it comes to taking treatment. His power of attorney, who is his son has agreed to a Percutaneous Endoscopic Gastrostomy (PEG) through phone but the man declines the PEG tube insertion because of the health risks posed by these tubes and prefers to have homecare with hospice. He does not want to contract ventilator associated pneumonia as he is well informed of the health risks these tubes have on patients. The assessment done by the nurse indicates that the patient can make his own decisions. Additionally, his son also agrees with the decision made by the patient.
Not only does he not react crudely when Elizabeth refuses his proposal impolitely but he also forgives her ill-treatment and treats her gently although she hurts his pride. In addition, he delivers the letter personally to Elizabeth which shows his honest feelings towards her. The letter begins with a controlled fury, but it is the fury of a lover toward his beloved. Although the charge of pride Elizabeth brought against him prevents him from reiterating his proposal of the marriage in the letter and he offers no apology to Elizabeth for the wrong he admitted having done, Darcy manages to praise Elizabeth and to acknowledge the value of her opinion even while holding steadfastly to his own. Obviously as we can
