He shows random acts of kindness to strangers his father remains cautious of. He seeks to understand why the gangs are ‘bad’ and believes that deep down, they too are loving. The mother did an unspeakable act that seems cruel at most looks, but to her, she was proving her love to her son, trying to give him a better life. The power of love will always transcend after death, and that is why love will always exist in a broken
Diaz believes that her brother doesn’t deserve her family support, but family supports each other at any moment in the life. For instance, Diaz state “my phone, come Deshacer a tus padres/ Jesus told me to, and Mon Frere”(34-35). The parents still believe that the brother can be different, but Diaz thinks that the brother just wants to separate her family. The family was getting affect by the bother, but they still are there for him.
He means that Jesus forgives the sinner thus the sinner does not feel guilty. Perhaps that is the case with misfit where he knows that he is guilty of his crimes but at the same time he thinks he is innocent. At the other instance where the Misfit uses the same statement, he means that if Jesus was the only one who raised the dead and this disrupts the balance. The Misfit’s view of reality is more honest because he accepts he is not a good man. On the other hand, the grandmother lives in past and refuses to accept the changes.
This incident shows the reader that she wants to be taken seriously by her colleagues. It also displays that Hilly deeply treasures her reputation because of her reaction towards the situation. On the other hand, Aunt Alexandra has also shown the reader signs that she values her family’s reputation. In chapter 23 of To Kill a Mockingbird, Aunt Alexandra did not allow Scout to play with Walter Cunningham because of his poor background. She said, “Because-he-is-trash, that’s why you can’t play with him.
In the play Fences, Troy comes forward to Rose about his affair, although it is a little to late. After Troy speaks to his friend Bono he comes clean to Rose and tells her, “I’m gonna be a daddy. I’m gonna be somebody’s daddy” (Wilson 66). Although Troy does not display a lot of characteristics of an apology deserving man, he does admit his fault to Rose and remains open with her from that point forward.
Secondly, Atticus knows he is going to lose the case for he knows that the moral character of Maycomb is not high enough to be able to see true innocence on account of evidence. This realization did not deter him, for he believed that “the one place a man should get a square deal is in a courtroom” (295). Thus he delivered on behalf of his morals and completed the case. This again shows moral courage, for Atticus knew that he if he forfeited his defense of Tom Robinson the ridicule would stop. However, if he did so then an innocent man would die with no chance of
We see the pain he is experiencing when he learns that his mother never died, but abandoned him, and his father had been telling lies. Even though he is struggling, he can experience normal feelings, just sometimes in a different
A striking difference between Creon and Antigone is their priorities. The greatest priority for Creon is the state power. He is quite cold towards his family because he is focused on following his own rules for the sake of Thebes. However, when it comes to family he acts so inhuman that he doesn 't listen to his own son and even thinks about ruthlessly punishing his nieces Antigone and Ismene.
In addition, he is not capable of committing murder, but his wife is the one who encourages him to do it, saying that “he needs to be a man”. Lady Macbeth is the whisper that convinces Macbeth when he is not sure of it. That is why her wife is seen to a large extent as evil during the
The narrator is also pictured as a hypocritical person. The narrator hates Marla, because she is exactly just like him when it comes to the support group. Marla does not suffer from any of the disease related to the support group. The narrator and Marla are the same, coming to the support groups because they have their own reason, and the reason is not because they have the disease.
But she said he took advantage of her, and when she stood up, she looked at him as if he were dirt beneath her feet.” This shows that in that town and age, many people were rude and took advantage of people in order to get a step ahead. According to a resource from cliffnotes.com, it states “Atticus believes in justice and the justice system. He doesn 't like criminal law, yet he accepts the appointment to Tom Robinson 's case. He knows before he begins that he 's going to lose this case, but that doesn 't stop him from giving Tom the strongest defense he possibly can.”
This is not only frustrating for Walter, but also for Bryan because I am sure that it may often seem like all his hard work is for nothing, especially since he is mostly doing it for free. I also find fault with the idea that Walter needed to admit his wrongdoings, “especially with women” because his past is irrelevant to this specific case, as he is completely innocent. Everyone makes mistakes but it is because of his unjust situation that he is forced to recognize them, as if this will get him any closer to justice and freedom. Even if Walter had lived a life of crime and immoral behavior, it would still be irrelevant as he still did not commit this crime, and therefore, was not worthy of being locked away and sentenced to death, while the real murderer was freely walking the streets. This only perpetuates the fear and stereotypical idealizations mainstream society has as black men as dangerous, and inherently
I think that Peeta should not have tried to stop Katniss from getting his blood poisoning medication, but he was just trying to protect her. Peeta had a crush on Katniss ever since he was little, but she just needed a little push to make her realize how she really felt. Peeta remembered every little detail about Katniss and throughout the book, she began to realize how much she actually noticed. After they both almost committed suicide, Haymitch told Katniss that the Capitol was not happy with what they did. In front of the cameras, they say it was because of love, but that little act of rebellion saved both of their
When my grandmother called me, I’d say, ‘Yes ma’am.’ I wanted to say, ‘Why do you hit me? Am I really a bad child? Why do you treat me like I’m not part of your family?’” As I’m reading his story he has a very remarkable story in my opinion, and he’s a perfect reason we need to change this system.
Mark Brittain could be described as dishonest, as he lies about many things throughout the book. For example, his relationship with Jody Mueller, while they were dating he had gotten her pregnant and not wanting anyone to know he sent to alone to have an abortion but, when in CAT class whilst talking on the subject of abortion he said it was wrong and against his religion to get abortions. After this had happened, Jody told the class about her abortion in which Mark called her a liar. After being released from the hospital after his suicide attempt, he went back to the class and told them the truth, “‘i’m a liar’ Mark said. ‘I think the last words I said to the class were that Jody Mueller was a liar.
