One man, George, was a germaphobe and was scared of being hosed off. McMurphy stands up for George and ends up getting into a fight with one of the aids. Bromden backs McMurphy up in the fight, so they both had to get EST treatment. As previously described, the table is shaped like a cross which helps prove that he is a Christ figure because Jesus was hung on a cross. Another instance where McMurphy is presented as a Christ figure is when Ratched found Billy Bibbit with Candy in the Seclusion room.

The narrator states, “…Salva was slowly weakening…step by step.” This quote symbolizes Salvas build up to a man, “What Doesn't Kill You Makes You Stronger.” Said the German philosopher, Friedrich Nietzsche. Salva is a transformed person by the end of the book. He has gone from a fortunate child to a refugee forced to flee his “village” to a man of great compassion and thoughtfulness to others. At the start of the novel, Salva is a fortunate child. The narrator says, “Salva’s father was a very successful man as he owned many cattle and worked as their villages judge an honored and respected position.” This meant that Salva could have many fantastic experiences that most could not.
Reverend Parris is a major character in “ The Crucible” and had a big impact in how the story played out. His character traits are some of the key reasons he made the choices he did. If Reverend Parris would of been a honest and caring man the story would have ended differently. But because of his bad character traits the story dragged on longer than it needed to when he could've just been
The commissioner that took Okonkwo 's body down was writing a book and sized up Okonkwo’s life to a paragraph. This furthers the author 's point that not only did white people force a new culture on the natives, but those like Okonkwo, who fought to preserve their way of life were silenced and their cause was forgotten by future generations. In both The Poisonwood Bible and Things Fall Apart, the characters that are able to grow in their exile by adapting to new cultures are better off than those who attempt to change the culture instead of themselves. When exiled, initial sadness seems unavoidable. But, the characters who adapt to the new culture or take the best qualities from it, are enriched and have a broader perspective with which to view the
Mr. Gatsby grew up as a poor man with another name. He was born James Gatz, but later changed his name to Jay Gatsby as part of his transformation into a member of the upper crust of society. In the book The Great Gatsby by Francis Scott Key Fitzgerald, Jay Gatsby is a great man because he is a decorated World War I hero, he is always faithful to Daisy, and he takes the blame when Daisy runs over Ms. Wilson. One aspect that highlights the greatness of Mr. Gatsby is his sacrifice to
Okonkwo in “Things Fall Apart” by Chinua Achebe, is thought of as a strong, great man. Yes, he is a fierce warrior and a very strong man. Another reason to respect him is that he is a very wealthy and successful yam farmer in his clan. Okonkwo also is married to three wives. All of this is just the beginning, okonkwo is not all that great of a man deep down as is shown in the story.
He scared the boys on purpose to make himself look good. Jack proved himself a symbol of evil and savagery again in chapter twelve on page one hundred ninety-two. Samneric tell Ralph that Jack and his hunters “sharpened a stick at both ends”. Jack doesn’t say this himself, but it’s the idea. The idea, or the fact that Jack intentionally wants to behead Ralph and put his head on a pike shows that Jack has sunk to the bottom of a deep hole.
Macbeth's lust for power becomes blatantly obvious based upon his fears that "to be thus is nothing, but to be safely thus", prompting him to kill Banquo and make an attempt at his son, Fleance. To relieve himself of his insecurities, he manipulates two murderers to believe than Banquo is their "enemy" and the source of all of their problems, displaying his twisted nature. He does not, before the act is already committed, share news of the "deed of dreadful note" with his "dearest chuck", Lady Macbeth, proving he has made his face a "vizard to [his] heart" not only for the public, but also to his once-cohort. Macbeth's peers' opinion sinks so low that he is often merely referred to as a "tyrant" rather than by his name. He is not only a traitorous and cruel king, but the extent to which he is "unfit to govern" makes him "unfit to live" - deserving of death for how he has let down Scotland.
Okonkwo is a titled and successful warrior in his village, Umuofia. A great amount of respect is received by Okonkwo because his youth did not promise such a prosperous life, he had to work hard for his wealth and success. There are certain
Joe’s rough start and the struggle he went through in his early years makes winning the Olympic gold medal in 1936 more meaningful and inspiring than it might have been otherwise. As a child of only 10 years, Joe faced many difficult hardships he thought would never end. From his mother dying, to being kicked out of his only home and being abandoned by his own father, he was very persistent to get what he wanted in life and to get where he wanted to be in life as well, which ultimately in exchange, led him and his meritable teammates to winning the Olympic gold medal. I find this story extraordinarily ironic due to the fact that Joe took himself and what he had, which was nothing, and made it and himself into something. All of the many difficult obstacles he faced and overcome makes it extremely difficult to believe that he had as much optimism as he did growing up
