“Maman died today...I don’t know … everything will have a more official feel” (Camus 3). The use of diction shows Meursault's dispassionate to visit his mother. Through the use of words, Meursault is prevailed as emotionless and complicated to understand as he does not mourn for his mother, but is calm and lifeless. Also, through the work of diction, it reveals that Meursault has an affection towards Marie, but does not have a habit of comforting his feelings for her, but goes with what occurs in present.But the relationship he has with Marie shows that he cannot give women a healthy relationship. Meursault is used to sleeping around with her that he does not value love she provides for him.
Nobody stands up for the accused directly in the entire play, even if they feel really guilty about all the people dying, they still did not step up and say something (Sundstrand). Near the end of play, both Hale and Parris are sick of executing, and they try to do whatever they can to make Proctor confess, even if it’s a half-hearted one, so they would not have to see any more of the tragedy and feel guilty for
Having seen how Javert has served legally, attempted the best he could while under the government’s thumb, and even how he tried to stop Valjean under the false interpretation of what he stood for, we can see that Javert is in no way a villain. In fact, Les Miserable’s true villains are the horrible Thenardiers, as well as the corrupt government of the time. Both Valjean and Javert are stuck in a miscommunication loop of what is good and evil. Javert is not a villain in the novel, but rather a warning. Although all may seem grim, his silence did not solve anything around him.
Everyone present was weeping and some were praying. The sound of Kaddish, the prayer for the dead coming from his father, caught Elie off guard and angered him. He exclaimed, “For the first time, I felt anger rising within me. Why should I sanctify His name? The Almighty, the eternal and terrible Master of the Universe, chose to be silent.
They didn't even go to jail.” (ibid, 1994: 92). The fact that the bullies were expelled and not sent to jail, is ludicrous to him; this is a plea for justice. Through his morbid reminiscence of dead people, whom he admits they were nice people, we see a gentle side of Holden. He wants acceptance, tolerance, likeability in people, and justice. Because he will never get that, he chooses to run
Henry lives out the maxim, “Nothing is at last sacred but the integrity of your own mind,” throughout the whole play, specifically during a scene with Sam and another scene with Deacon Ball. In the scene with Sam, Henry refuses to pay his taxes as an act against conformity and supporting the war, this eventually results to him ending up going to jail. In addition to his act against conformity as a means of not paying his taxes, he also follows his own belief by teaching the way he wants to and questioning if God is an atheist. Again as a result of his beliefs, he ends up getting in trouble by Deacon Ball. At the end of the day, the way Henry lives his life is considered sacred because despite knowing that there will be consequences to his actions, he still follows through with them due to the fact does not care what others think of how he lives his life, he seeks change and is not afraid to act out his beliefs in order to achieve
A significant number of the characters ' issues come from their inability to create or keep up a lucid character. Lester discovers satisfaction by isolating his feeling of self-esteem from his employment and his home life. He discovers that despite the fact that his manager and spouse regard him just as he 's useless, that doesn 't imply that he is. Angela trusts that her character is established completely on her sexuality. She fears being "normal" since she has mistaken commonness for physical modesty, and has mistaken physical conventionality for having no personality.
Okonkwo is the protagonist, so it makes sense for him to demonstrate a lot of pride which he undeniably does. Okonkwo is constantly bragging and boastful talking about how many men he or Umuofia has killed and is constantly scared to be perceived as weak. An early example of this is in chapter 7 when Okonkwo kills Ikemefuna. He is advised by his elders not to go and just stay at home. But Okonkwo goes anyway, which leads to him killing Ikemefuna because "He was afraid of being thought weak."
“We’re all we got left. We ought to be able to stick together against everything,””(page 176). Another example of Sodapop demonstrating his role of peacekeeping occurs when he sends a letter to Ponyboy while Pony is in an abandoned church due to an argument with Dally. Soda writes, “Darry is awful sorry he hit you. You know he didn’t mean it,” (page 81).
This limits women to find the confidence to stand up for their beliefs. As Claudio falsely degrades Hero’s character, Hero accepts these accusations voluntarily and remains silent about the issue. Claudio stands up in public and proceeds to call Hero slanderous names such as, “thou pure impiety and impious purity” (IV.i.109). Hero again does not object, though she falls due to complete shock. Once her father hears these accusations, he commands to “let her die” as a result of the crimes she committed (IV.i.163).
