Pap is a free man who takes it for granted especially when he takes his anger on African Americans and his own son. He isn’t well educated but this quote by Huck is a hint towards Paps good side. “For what you want, above all things, on a raft, is for everybody to be satisfied, and feel right and kind towards others”. Huck never had that great of an education so how is this coming from his mouth. His dad must’ve told him about these things, since Pap has made many mistakes in life he has a good side to himself.
I never thought you but a good man, John - only somewhat bewildered” (55). This quote reveals, Elizabeth’s genuine understanding and faithfulness in her husband.

John feels this guilt, as he recognizes and takes responsibility for the sin he commits, against his wife. Additionally, due to John’s guilty conscience, he also realizes the value and tenderness that his wife brings him.
Mark Twain’s “The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn” is about a young boy named Huck, in search of freedom and adventure. The shores of the Mississippi River provides a good amount of backdrop for the story. Huck is running away because he doesn’t want to be civilized, while running away, Huck meets up with a man named Jim. “The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn” is set along the Mississippi River along Missouri, Illinois, and Arkansas in the 1830-1840s, back in this time period slavery was legal. This setting relates to the story directly because slavery was legal in the south, and this was just a way of life back in this time period.
Huckleberry Finn 's journey is far more than a journey up the Mississippi - it is a journey from boyhood to adulthood. How did the decisions he had to make during the journey help him to mature, and what were the two or three most important lessons he learned during the journey? In the book The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, we watch Huck grow from boyhood to manhood. He faces many obstacles on his journey but never ceases to overcome them. Though society told him how to act and what to believe, he continuously did what he believed to be right.
Observing the love and affection between others only increases the effect his own solitude has on him. He is aware of his otherness and knows that he is “shut out from intercourse” (84) with the people he holds so dear. It can be argued that this is the point where the creature’s humanity is the strongest throughout the course of story. He has a basic understanding of human societies, he speaks and reads their language, shows compassion and, most importantly, seeks their company and friendship. In his knowledge that social belonging is the missing component to his own happiness, he confronts the people he secretly observed only to, once again, be met with fear and anger (94-95).

Thesis: In the novel The Kite Runner, the author explores the conflict between redemption and guilt, showing that people who are burdened with guilt will only feel free if they make up for their actions.

He shows great love and sympathy for his family and cares for them when his father chose to be idle. He also shows his sympathy to his children, biological or not. His unsympathetic tendencies distance him from the reader, he is violent and threatening. In either circumstance, Okonkwo proves to be a memorable character in Achebe’s Things Fall Apart, because of his striking characteristics that show him to neither be a hero nor a villain, but a loving an abusive father. Okonkwo may deter readers because of his violence, but subtly shows a deep, beneath-the-surface love for his family that resonates with the reader throughout the
In chapter 15, Jim appeals to Huck’s conscience, using ethos and pathos, to encourage Huck to be kinder and more thoughtful (89). Huck realizes that Jim cares about his family, just as White people do, feels remorse over hitting his deaf child, just as any White person would, (158-159), and matures enough to humble himself enough to apologize to Jim after tricking him (89). Despite having various moral dilemmas throughout the book, questioning if he is making the right decision, Huck always concludes that he does not want to sell Jim back into slavery, even going as far as turning his back on God, resolving that he does not want to sell Jim, and he’d rather go to hell than pray a lie
These things bring comfort to Heaney now that his father is gone because he can remember him by them. At the same time it should be taken into consideration that Heaney’s efforts to remember his father is “an aching admittance that he properly cannot.” (Dave Lordan, The Stinging

I believe that Jourdan Anderson’s letter was reasonably forgiving but he is not going to forget the trauma that he dealt with for thirty-two years. For example, he will never forget the times his master shot him and how he handled his children in the past. The letter he wrote is very well stated with decent English for a former slave. He mentioned some excellent points explaining why he would or would not come back to work at his previous living quarters. Although he misses the family he was a servant for he is still wary and unsure about if he can trust them.
Throughout this part of the novel i have to admit i felt really bad for his friend Hassan because he is a really great friend of Amir but it seems to me that Amir does not truely respect and honor his friends loyalty and love for him. When the new Amir finally came into affect it really lifted my spirits and made me happy to see what kind of man my beloved Amir was turning into. He was starting to stick up for himself, he was starting to show more responsibilty for him self and others, started having more respect for himself and others, and started to not let what people had to say about him affect and play a role in his head as much as he did before his life changing journey and new sought after attitude. I am anxious to see how the new Amir develops and becomes more of a man and to see what decisions he will make and how he will handle these new situations he will soon be
