You see it peek out at some points in this video when his father is trying to keep a calm tone and tries to talk about Evan’s problems. They have the ability and it seems like they are doing well but in the end they just end up being mean. His father has a tendency to blow up and go straight to being frightening and mean. His mother has a tendency to be mean, but she also can be weak sometimes. She accused Evan of something and when the father started yelling at him about it she gave in and said it had probably been her fault.
Proctor serves as the voice of reason and justice. As he is the one, who knows the reality of Parris, so he is always anger with him and seldom go to the church. Parris is an example of appearance versus reality. As in his first appearance, he seems good father, who cares about his daughter but in the fact, he only cares about his reputation, as he says “they will howl me out of the Salem for such corruption in my house” (1.10). Parris has always disagreements with Proctor and both of them angry with each other.
The only thing he cares about is getting drunk every day until he doesn't remember himself. Pap is a contrasting figure to Jim who is described in the book as the agent of goodness and honesty. Huck's father is the example of all worlds' immorality and filthiness. ” (Stats). This shows how Twain is comparing both Pap as a father and Jim as a father.
I don’t think all politicians are crooks or anything. I just think they’re boring.” (Bell, 46) A poem “The Hangman” shows how being a bystander is not the right choice. In the end of “The Hangman”, the narrator was the one who the Hangman wanted to kill.
People said he existed, but Jem and I had never seen him” (Harper Lee 10). This quote helps explain that Boo is locked up because Scout and Jem, as well as most people in town, have never seen Boo inside of the house or outside of the house. They also will not meet Boo because they are scared of him. During the story they explain that when something happens in the town, Boo is to blame. This quote helps explain some of the crimes or scary acts, “People said he went out at night when the moon was down, and peeped in windows… people’s chickens and household pets were found mutilated” (Harper Lee 10).
"What's up tonight on Channel 4, Channel 7, Channel 9? Where are the cowboys rushing, and do I see the United States Cavalry over the next hill to the rescue?" To prove my topic sentence, Bradbury is technically making fun of the houses because the people are always inside watching television. Mr.Mead is explaining that it is a everyday thing and he is use to it and he finds it amusing. Mr.Mead talks about how the streets are so quiet he says, The street was silent and long and empty, with only his shadow moving like the shadow of a hawk in midcountry.
One of the main examples of denial is through Brick who denies his sexuality for Maggie, Big Daddy, and himself. He is trying to please everyone in the family through ignoring how he feels, which leads him to drinking his sorrows through liquor. It is not the fact that he does not love Maggie it is that he can not love Maggie due to loss of attraction. He is denying himself for Big Daddy only to not disappoint him because he is the son. He loves Big Daddy and to tell him the news while he is on his death time would leave Brick to the thought of Big Daddy dying in disappointment through his son.
This example fits Dally because his parents don’t care where he is or what he is doing. “Shoot, my old man don’t give a hang whether i’m in a car wreck or drunk in the gutter” (88 or 90). If Dally’s parents care about him, then he shouldn’t be so mean and aggressive, and he shouldn’t have been put up in jail at the age of ten. This example fits Johnny, as well. His parents use Johnny to express anger.
Yunior doesn’t have an exactly good relationship with his dad. His father fits the image of machismo and is dominant in the household. I also believe he is the antagonist of Yunior’s life. For example, he beat Yunior because of his car sickness, calling him a weakling. Also, Papi doesn’t just pick on Yunior, all the children and including their mother, Mami, get emotional and physical abuse.
If we are looking at the contrasts between them you can notice that Dally is a tough guy would doesn’t really care about anything, but Johnny is a delicate and quite guy. He is very fragile, his is because he was jumped badly but a social gang called the ‘Socs’ who scarred him for life but also because of how bad his life is at home. He can stay away from home for long periods of time and they wouldn’t seem to care or even notice. Johnny is the one in the gang (The Greasers) that everyone looks out for and that keeps everyone to get along with each other but meanwhile, Dally was the meanest and toughest guy in the gang and the one needs the least amount of attention. Dally is one of the oldest, coldest and the one who got in most trouble with the cops out of the greasers whereas
“I come to see what mischief your uncle’s brewin’ now.” John Proctor says this to Abigail when she asks why he has come to town. Proctor is no saint. The uncle he is referring to is
This causes sadness in Harry, leading him to get in a fight with Craig Randall over the snide comments made about the house, "even though I [Harry] agreed with every word. " This exchange shows how Harry must face the challenge of whether to go along with what everyone else says, or defend his family 's honour. Another example of the challenges faced through growing up from childhood to adolescence is of Harry 's classmate Johnny Barlow. Johnny’s family consists of a drunk father and a brother who has ended in jail many times, leading to the people in the town thinking that Johnny himself is, “Good for nothing.” Due to all the gossiping, Johnny feels that he must leave the town temporarily for he feels alone and disconnected.
I will characterize the Ewells because they are a disgrace to Maycomb. The Ewells are a disgrace to Maycomb because they do a lot of things that are not socially acceptable or are against the law. None of the Erwells work and the children do not go to school so they make a very small income. Their dad is a drunk so whenever they do earn money their dad spends it on alcohol and not food for the children. Their dad also illegally hunts out of season but the town accepts it because the children might not get any food otherwise.
When somebody breaks the law, can they still be honorable? The greasers from The Outsiders represent examples of people who break laws and are still honorable. In S.E. Hinton’s book, The Outsiders, the greasers mirror lawbreakers. They have hatred towards the Socs. One of the greasers haphazardly take things too far.
Everybody has a soft side, they just don’t always chose to show it. Some people keep theirs a secret, as a defense mechanism because they are afraid of getting hurt. In S.E Hinton’s The Outsiders, one of the main characters, Dally, doesn’t reveal his until the very end. He has been hurt before, and is scared that if he lets it show, the same thing will happen again. However, very soon after he reveals his soft side, he is hurt worse than ever before.
