These are the three main characters in the book that had their appearances misunderstood. Boo Radley is constantly assumed of being a horrible person. There are many rumors that spread around the town. A rumor about Boo Radley started and spread quick, ¨...Boo drove the scissors into his parents leg…,¨ as he was sitting in his house cutting up newspaper for his book (Lee 13). Boo never goes outside so no one has ever spoken to him, no one knows if this actually happened.
"’Cause I’m black…"(Steinbeck ch.4). This is the only time that we see crooks discussing how everyone on the ranch degrades him and discriminates him. Crooks is so oppressed by the society that he lives in, that he starts to opress himself and he seems to be depressed. Crooks never talks back to any of the ranch workers when they call him racial slurs to his face. Crooks either has a strong will to keep working here, or, he knows that he has no other choice than to go out alone and starve.
“Mockingbirds don’t do one thing but make music for us to enjoy… That’s why it’s a sin to kill a mockingbird.” To Kill a Mockingbird written by Harper Lee is set in the racist county of Maycomb, Alabama in the 1930s. All different types of people live in this town, the gossips, the unwanted, the misjudged and so on. Arthur Radley otherwise known as Boo is misunderstood and misjudged throughout the story. Categorized as a monster, life was hard for him so he always stayed inside. Tom Robinson, a black man living in very racist times, also had it hard.
Question No. 3 Answer: The narrator ponders whether Goodman Brown 's night in the forest could have all been a fantasy, however says that even on the off chance that it wasn 't genuine, it destroyed Goodman Brown 's life. He wound up afraid and doubtful of everyone around him. In spite of the fact that Goodman Brown kept on going to chapel and tune in to the minister, he would turn pale and feared that the congregation, the evil minister, and his listening ward would all be crushed. He frequently woke up at midnight and shrank from Faith beside him in bed, and when his family prayed together at morning or at night, he glared and murmured to himself.
Him hiding away makes people think he’s evil and scary. “Every night sound I heard from my cot on the back porch was magnified threefold; every scratch of feet on gravel was Boo Radley seeking revenge…” Tom has a physical handicap. He is unable to use his left hand. This handicap forces him to work even harder to take care of his family. These handicaps cause more damage by how the townspeople view them.
Once he almost squeezed all the air out of him he was flung back onto the ground. When Scout heard a man breathing hard a coughing hard he went towards the person and asked who he was and there was no answer. That person that caused Bob Ewell to go flying back onto the ground was Boo Radley. No one ever sees boo he just lives in his parents house, everyone thinks of him as a monster that wants to kill or hurt everyone even though he is a heart warming normal person. The book, To Kill a Mockingbird, has the theme of there is always good in bad and bad in good, its shown in the paragraphs above.
In To Kill A Mockingbird Boo Radley is a man who always stays shut up inside of his house which causes many rumors about him to be spread around the town. For instance, at the end of chapter 14 it’s stated “Dill?”/ “Mm?”/ “Why do you reckon Boo Radley’s never run off?”/ Dill sighed a long sigh and turned away from me./ “Maybe he doesn 't have anywhere to run off to…” This shows how Boo Radley is emotionally struggling because people always are assuming things about him that can cause him to feel uncomfortable around others. At the end of the book Boo Radley acts afraid of everything like when it says “Will You take me home?’ He almost whispered it, in the voice of a child afraid of the dark.” After witnessing Jem, Scout, and Dill acting out his rumored “life story”, I infer that it must have been very weird and uncomfortable for Boo to be so close to “his children” when they were the ones who supposedly made fun of him. Emotionally he is struggling because he is overwhelmed by the fact that he is always a hot topic of the town, and the trio acting his story out didn’t make him feel any better. In the poem “Caged Bird” by Maya Angelou the last stanza is written “The caged bird sings/ with a fearful trill/ of things unknown/ but longed for still/and his tune is heard/ on the distant hill/ for the caged bird/sings of freedom.” Boo Radley
At Wuthering Heights and Thrushcross grange, Heathcliff does not fit in. Since he was taken in as a young boy by Mr. Earnshaw, he has been alienated and treated unjustly by almost everyone. One of the characters that resented Heathcliff from the beginning was Hindley. Hindley treated Heathcliff with no respect and constantly degraded him, “He [Hindley] has been blaming our father for treating Heathcliff too liberally; and swears he will reduce him to his right place” (Brontë 30). After some time of being ridiculed by his so called “brother,” Heathcliff seeks justice for himself by taking revenge on Hindley and plotting to ruin his life, “I’m trying to settle how I shall pay Hindley back.
No clear evidence was given. Perturbed, Scout began to realize just how discriminatory and arbitrary the world is. Although Bob Ewell had won “his” case, during the trial Atticus Finch, Scout’s father and a Maycomb County lawyer, had humiliated him. As an indignant, spiteful, and cowardly drunk, Bob attacked both Scout and Jem on the road one evening. What had Scout or Jem done to him?!
At the opening of the play, Drummond is extremely unpopular with the townspeople. To put it simply, he’s downright hated. According to Reverend Brown, Drummond is “A vicious, godless man!” (27) Reverend Brown also says, “Henry Drummond is an agent of darkness. We let him in our town!” (27) These brutal statements alone show the pure abhorrence that is ebbing out of the town’s citizens. Plus, when Melinda, the little girl, first sees Drummond, she gasps and exclaims fearfully, “It’s the Devil!” (36) Drummond’s character also seems very unsympathetic at the beginning of the book.
Lennie is often called stupid, and the bunkers always picked on him because he was mentally ill. George would often prank him or make fun of him. At a point in the book, Culey gets very physical with Lennie, and starts punching him in the face. Although blacks were treated differently and didn 't have equal rights; the whites expected a lot from the
Instead of checking out the situation or wounding him, he shot the man in the back and killed him. It 's despairing how President Johnson used Governor Romney as his scapegoat, especially when I learned that they had been wonderful friends for many years. Johnson was already under fire for the Vietnam situation and was afraid of more opposition from the people of the United States. He was concerned about the backlash he might get for sending troops out to possibly be killed. So, he went on television and seven times during his speech he said, "Romney is not able to manage things and maintain order in Detroit."
This is when his nightmare began his living hell started. He isn’t clear on what happened to change his mom and he never will most likely. His mother Catherine’s drive to insanity was very much unnoticed her husband was a fireman and was away for many days at a time. She favorited her other kids while she found any excuse to punish Dave. The older he got the worse it got, Slapped, Smashed into a mirror made to repeat “I’m a bad boy”, Made to look for something for hours for something that has “gone missing”.
But when a black man asks for help and gets killed, they have a bunch excuses, which is some bull shit to me. It’s so irritating, and it pisses me off in all types of ways. Why can’t we get our justice? You don’t see white people dying everyday. It’s my fellow brothers or sisters.
Boo Radley is a victim of this. Rumors are always being spread, but never known if it is true or not true. Miss Stephanie always had many things to say, but “had more to say about Radleys” since they were rarely seen throughout the day (44). The rumors being said about Boo Radley have always been opinions, since no one knows why Boo Radley does not come out of his house. Boo Radley is not the only victim of this, but also African Americans not only prejudice towards them but injustice was being done towards them.
