Unfortunately, he crashes and is stranded at sea until he is found by the Japanese. Zamperini still holds strong throughout his entire stay at the Prisoner of War Camps and makes it home to tell of his tale. The “idea” motivates you to turn your seemingly bad situation into a positive one because as he said, “A moment of pain is worth a lifetime of
Fletcher Christian, the rebel says,” He doesn 't punish for discipline, he likes to see men crawl.” What he means is that Captain Bligh goes far beyond just discipline when it comes to punishment, he hurts people for the fun of it because he is a sick man. After all the textual evidence shown, Captain Bligh shows that he is a horrible Captain and human being, and that the crew was more than justified to mutiny the Bounty. Using inhumane and cruel ways of discipline, Captain Bligh shows people that at something doesn 't mean you are a good person. What this tells us is that Captain Bligh, even though an influential sailer, has such a mad temper, that he made people mutiny and get hung for trying to deal with such a horrible human being. In the end, Fletcher Christian and his followers were completely justified to take over the bounty when Bligh was the
In addition, the story contains lots of symbolism, by making many objects and events as signs of things. The pearl symbolized a reward in return of his son getting stung by the scorpion. It was a reward, but he was too greedy so it brought him bad luck. Furthermore, it was contained many life lessons like not to be greedy, to care about family more than anything, and to do anything for family, because family is everything. By being so greedy, only caring about his opinions, beating his wife for saying things he disagreed with, and not accepting any offers the jewelry stores were offering brought him bad luck.
His life is one full of narcissism and abuse. The hunger artist hates what he does, but due to the way he’s lived his life, he is so narcissistic that he can’t stop. Even after the 40 days have ended and the hunger artist is allowed to eat, he doesn’t want to. The narcissism leads to the artist throwing his life away so that he can live in a cage and perform for people that don’t care about him. Even when fasting is no longer as popular as it used to be the artist does not stop, instead he continues fasting.
In the novel, Unbroken by Laura Hillenbrand, Louie is tortured by being dehumanized and isolated while being a POW. Throughout the book, Louie is being treated poorly by his captors, but resisted giving up. One example is in chapter 17, Louie was being transported to a camp and is put on the ground. The text states, “Louie said something to Phil and immediately felt a boot kick into him...” (page 181). This shows Louie is being isolated because when he talks he gets hit as a result, causing him to be silent and not be able to talk to anyone to insure he doesn 't get hit.
Jem was upset at the fact that Tom, despite all Atticus did to try and protect him, was sent to prison. He didn’t see it as fair because his father risked so much to bring the truth out in to the open. After all of the events involving Tom Robinson, Bob Ewell threatened to get Atticus back: “Mr. Bob Ewell stopped Atticus on the post office corner, spat in his face, and told him he’d get him if it took the rest of his life,” (217). Bob Ewell followed through on his threat, which is where we see confirmation that Jem learnt the lesson of true bravery.
They were false alarms, but something was coming. Louie watched the sky and hoped the americans come before bird kills him” (Hillenbrand 181) He had hope even though the bird did all sorts of things to him like whip him, starve him, give him diarrhea, etc. but he kept going with the little bit of pride he had left. In conclusion, I think that the Japanese-Americans and Americans did a good job on holding the little bittest of pride they had left, they were in harsh environments and they endured all of it. Although history had hard times we are sure not to ever repeat our mistakes because repeating mistakes lead to the same disaster.
However, it also shows that although Jack is becoming a savage he still has civilization in him. This is demonstrated when Golding uses the word “shuddering” because although Jack was laughing he seemed uncomfortable and frightened. This shows that Jack has not lost himself completely because he still has trouble killing others without feeling guilty or sick. Finally, when Jack says “ You should have seen it” he is really trying to influence Ralph and the boys to brutally kill the animals on the island. This encourages the rest of the boys to become hunters since they too want to feel the sense of power that Jack appears to have.
This quote from the novel demonstrates how Louie struggles to preserve his dignity. During the war, Louie faced harsh times where he had psychological wounds from getting beat by the Japanese. Being captives and a POW (Prisoner of War), Louie learned how to cope with being treated as a subhuman or trash. By using small acts of resistance against the guards and rebelling, like stealing anything he can find mostly food, mocking the guards behind their back, and trying to escape showing them he was still not scared. Those acts tested/reclaimed what little dignity he had left from what the guards tried to take (Florman
Grendel was only acting on instinct since the music hurt his ears. The author sets the tone in the story for us to have compassion for Grendel since Beowulf plays the roll of making the humans look bad. They exiled Grendel therefor, he did not stand a chance in the first place to become good, but instead have to live a life of misery. Grendel also only attacked when they played music since it sent waves of agony through his head. He was acting because of pain and not because he really wanted to hurt everyone.
