With the many challenges in the way, adversity can be difficult to overcome in the process of leaving behind a darker past. In the story “Escape From Spiderhead” by George Saunders and “Sonny’s Blues” by James Baldwin demonstrate how two characters develop by shedding behind their old lives. In “Sonny’s Blues”, Sonny faces problems with drug addictions and performing poorly in school while disagreeing with his brother on many occasions. The other story “Escape From Spiderhead”, Jeff, a pawn in many experiments who agrees without thinking to be a subject to harsh testing. Sonny and Jeff are examples on how the past does not define and individual, and through the challenges they overcome and how they deal with the situation demonstrates how
Wadley’s Behind Mud Walls: Seventy-Five Years in a North Indian Village is an insightful view into another culture. As an audience member who lives in a country where changes are created quickly and numerously, it was surprising (at first) how the villagers of Karimpur resisted change to their way of life. Though this reviewer is familiar with the concept of having landlords, she was surprised how Karimpur did not belong to the people but rather the landlords. It was also a surprise in how quickly children caught on to their social status. For example, in questing a villager about why a bhangi could not attend school with the other boys in the village, the Sahib got this
When kids are one they learn how to hide things, when they become two they learn to bluff, five-year-olds know how to turn parents against each other,nine they know how to cover their tracks, then once you get older you barely tell the truth to your parents because you feel it’s none of their business. How do we know they’re lying, body language. When people lie they do things such as too much eye contact, fake smiles, or freezing their upper bodies. When talking to people, An honest person is going to be cooperative. When you are asking them questions they are also more likely when you ask for a consequence for this action to have stricter consequences.
Flannery O’Connor almost has a habit of making the endings to her stories tragic. However, those same tragic endings always seem to have a positive deeper meaning. The title, “The River”, could make one believe that the text could be about almost anything. When I saw the title of the story and realized it was written by Flannery O’Connor, I knew that there cannot be anything good about a river and so it must lead to something catastrophic. The most important characters in the story are Harry, the five-year-old boy whose parents pay him no attention, his baby sitter, Mrs. Connin, and Bevel Summers, the preacher.
Keep in mind that this is a tour guide for children and pre-teens, so some of the places he visits are not relevant. Holden spends his first couple of nights going from bar to bar, getting more and more depressed, which is incredibly important to his character, however, it wouldn’t be effective on a tour guide for kids. Holden also goes to many fictional places, such as the Edmont Hotel, or Mr. Antolini’s house. The latter is quite significant, since Mr. Antolini points out that Holden lacks direction in life, contributing to Holden’s discovery of himself. Once again, children would not be interested in going to some random teacher’s house, although Antolini probably wouldn’t
For example, Tom wasn´t kind with Wilson, and the few times he talked to him, most of his words were lies or rumors, but never a conversation like he would have with his polo friends the Sloane´s. Also we can see how Tom doesn´t think of everyone as equals, when he said racial comments of poor people. However, they had other people with money (West Eggers), but still they never saw them the same way as themselves. When a new-money person was to be accepted by the elite of East Egg? Maybe the only case would be Nick in the whole novel, but because he was family of Daisy and didn´t fit in either of the two high-social
This scene could’ve been added to show the viewer that the Finch family was not blame for the fact that Atticus was defending Tom.This scene will also impact the community and the relationships that they build with each other, especially after they come together at Miss Maudie’s house. This scene should have been added to the movie, because during the movie they show a lot about the trial and how Scout kept getting into fights at school because Atticus was defending Tom Robinson. Without the support of this scene, a lot of information from the first and second part of the book will be lost, which will cause the movie to be portrayed differently that how it's written in the
Perspective can change if the world opens up their eyes and hearts to everything around them. In society, people tend to forget that there are those who have different living conditions compared to themselves. They do not try to understand what others are going through or what can cause them to engage in their actions. In "Bumping into Mr. Ravioli", written by Adam Gopnik, the author writes a story about his daughter, Olivia, creating an imaginary friend that is too busy to play with her. Gopnik assumes that her imaginary friend is a sign of trauma or a sign of loneliness.
