How Adventurous is Tom Sawyer? How adventurous can a boy get? In Mark Twain’s The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, Tom Sawyer is very adventurous because he is always looking for a challenge, he makes things more complicated for some extra fun, and he even thinks being gravely injured just makes things more interesting. First, Tom Sawyer makes things harder on himself by always looking for a challenge. “‘I’ll help you steal him!’” (p.225).
This theme is shown through Kevin, as he is tiny for his age, and has a physical disability, but is extremely intelligent. The author portrays this theme on page 54 by having Max say, “‘And anyhow it’s not fair how everybody always says ‘Poor Kevin’ just because he didn’t grow… You can ask him anything and he knows what it means.’” Max knows that even though Kevin is the size of a kindergartener, he is smart enough to be in college. Also, he knows that other people should never judge him on his looks, because on the inside he is so much more. Most people who meet Freak think he can not do anything because he is “disabled”. But, they are wrong, just as Max knows.
They'll come when they hear us…” (16). Ralph doesn't even know what the conch is, but he then uses it to call the meeting and the boys begin to arrive and see Ralph with the the conch and Ralph gets all the credit for Piggy’s discovery. Piggy still is the smartest one on the island and Ralph is quick to realize that. For example, Ralph is by himself thinking and while he's thinking, he realizes that Piggy isn't there to be the real
During his runaway journey, he befriends two nuns and discusses his thoughts on how Mercutio’s death “was Romeo’s fault… It drives [Holden] crazy if somebody gets killed… and it’s somebody else’s fault” (145). A strong sign of his inability to recover is that he blames himself for his brother’s death. Holden seems himself as Romeo and Allie as Mercutio. Although he could not help Allie at all, he still places the blame on himself. Because he knows the negative effect of a premature loss of innocence, he clings onto his belief of innocence in the youth.
They both continue to grow and mature, but now it is different. Even though he never says anything about it until later in the novel, Finny knows that Gene purposefully shook the branch that caused him to fall and injure him. He had a nagging suspicion that he didn’t just fall, but he didn’t want to accept it. It is a fact that Finny is a great athlete and he has never fallen before, so why would he fall now? Knowing that your best friend, or someone you
Her initial manipulation attempts are unsuccessful, but Marie continues: “She harassed and bedeviled him so, / that he had no choice but to tell her” (lines 87-88). The use of “harassed and bedeviled” instantly casts his wife’s insistence as suspicious and malicious. Marie confirms the suspicions when the wife schemes with a knight who loved her to get rid of Bisclavret. Even though “she’d never loved [the knight] at all,” the wife offers herself to him in return for stealing Bisclavret’s clothes (line 107). “So Bisclavret was betrayed, / ruined by his own wife” (line 125-126, emphasis added).
George killed lennie because if he didn’t, Curley would have made him suffer. The main reason George killed Lennie is because Lennie would have killed somebody again. And the evidence is clearly there, the pet mice that he killed, the poor puppy that he accidently hit to hard, and especially Curley’s wife. He almost killed the girl in weed if he had gone any further. The sad thing is is that he doesn't know how strong he really is, nor does he know what he’s done wrong in the first place.
In the article “The Passion of Gatsby: Evocation of Jesus in Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby”, by Thomas Dilworth, Gatsby’s love for Daisy and fear that Tom would hurt her, “motivates him to keep Daisy’s secret about her accidentally killing Myrtle Wilson” (Dilworth 119).

Also caring for his safety and not her
