For example, when Lennie goes into Crooks’ room even though he knows he is not allowed in there, Lennie is just trying to be friendly. Crooks at first doesn’t want Lennie in the room but after Lennie would not leave he let him stay. By Crooks letting Lennie stay was probably good for Crooks because he is always lonely and being discriminated against. The absence of friendship makes the characters sad and lonely and then they are meaner characters. For example, The Boss who only shows up once is a very lonely man because he has no friendships so he is always a very angry man.
The villagers were extremely blind that they even did not want to rebuild the ‘black box’ because of the pieces included in the box. It was vulnerable to them that are for some people said that it was made from some pieces of the original. The decisions they made were right to them because this is how they saw it. They were subjectively taking their decisions, which mean they thought that the old villagers are right; thus, the practice was correct to them. It was blinding their eyes from the truth that they were losing the dearest people to their
She just didn 't want to lose another, probably last, loved one in her life. This emotion had come from her love towards Homer but he had turned her down and broke her heart. The town feels bad for her before they found out about the death and kept pitying her for her loneliness she lived in. With that, she also got irritated because they didn 't know the full story. They just judged from
TITLE OF THE STORY ‘The Boarded Window’ itself represents Murdock and tells the readers that he was under a great amount of stress. The readers are also told that he did not board the windows due to his hatred of light and fresh air, but some other reason such as his wife’s death. Windows are generally the passageway to something, but when boarded up, it blocks any such entrances. “Anyone knew why it was so closed; certainly not because of the occupant’s dislike of light and air,” these lines justify the aforementioned
Men owned men because of the color of their skin. These ex-slaves were uneducated and were scared of any change in their lives. What could be theirs today, may not be theirs tomorrow. It’s a shame that people had to live in fear of the government taking something away from them and all they did was share part of their lives to be documented and the documentation was not even accurate. “Freedom had come to a nation of four million slaves, and it changed their lives in deep and important ways.
Easy does not trust many people because they have let him down so many times for an example Easy close friend was trying to set him up behind his back and from that day on Easy never trusted anyone again because he felt even those close to you will still stab you in your back Easy was trying to help a friend out to help find his son but Easy got pulled over by the cops that’s when Easy felt that his friend was trying to get him put in jail because he knew Easy was not supposed to be diving at the time. I can relate to Easy having trust issues because I’ve been let down in the past I’ve also had those I called my friends who in the long run has shown me there are not many people that you can truly call your
Rory published the Old Man’s story without knowing the many struggle and pain the Old Man went through. It was hard for him to lose his story and to come upon it to see that someone published it as their own made him a bit angry because they didn’t know the truth behind his writing he became saddened when he recalled the events that happened such as when his daughter passed away, it was hard for Rory to understand what he did once he knew the reality behind his story and to try and repay him with money just wasn’t enough for the Old Man, the only thing the Old Man wanted is to tell the meaning of his story and show Rory the pain he went through in it. It was a bad idea for him not to tell his wife that the writing in his laptop wasn’t his because he ruined the trust he and his wife had after he confessed of it not being his writing she got really upset it made her lose trust in him because she thought that he had finally showed his full potential in the writing. But it ended up being someone else’s work.He would’ve been better off struggling to get published instead of risking his life and relationship with his wife because even though they stay together it’ll be hard for her to trust
I’d rather be in the reformatory than in his house, I’d rather in the pen!” (O’Connor 480). Norton does not like the presence of Rufus at first but later tends to tolerate it because it was a distraction to Sheppard so that Norton could kill his self to be in Heaven with his mother has stated by Rufus. I believe that even though Rufus may be “lame” because of his club foot he does not fit the “lame” in the title. I feel the “lame” in the title is referring to someone that thinks they know everything but actually
“FOR YEARS WE COULDN'T TALK ABOUT anything else. Our daily conduct, dominated then by so many linear habits, had suddenly begun to spin around a single common anxiety.” (Pg.57) People who knew Santiago and didn’t warn him were extremely disappointed in their actions and the guilt was slowly killing them without even realizing it. Those who didn’t care for Santiago still ended up paying the price with guilt. “Not everybody loved Santiago Nasar so much, of course. Polo Carrillo, the owner of the electric plant, thought that his serenity wasn't innocence but cynicism.
Scott Fitzgerald explains how he doesn’t believe that our elders are so much more knowledgeable than us and how marriage sours quickly (He really gets into many different topics). Elders were more than willing to share experiences with younger people but they really don’t want to hear a reaction to their experience. Fitzgerald explains how “They always talk about their experiences but they go on making the same mistakes at 50” (5). A perfect example of this is Troy in Fences. Troy probably left his family in shambles due to his stint in prison but he worked hard to obtained stable job after he finished his sentence.
The thought of death being so near and the thought of never seeing their loved ones must be terrifying . Therefore, I think it is normal for soldiers to have some kind of souvenir from home to help them remember the good times and to take their minds off the war. Lieutenant Cross’s situation was a bit different from the other soldiers because he had became obsessed with Martha. A woman who did not love him and only thought of him as a friend.
