(Green 107). Miles starts to realize and finds the strength that the mystery of Alaska and her death don’t stop him from loving her. Miles loves Alaska, or a perception of her which changes throughout the novel. Miles loves a version of Alaska that might not even exist, or it’s that he loves parts of her, but may ultimately not even love her. This represents that Miles isn’t a soldier.
Im glad I got a second chanse to be smart becaus I lerned a lot of things that I never even new were in this world and Im grateful that I saw it all for a littel bit” (Keyes, 305). On the contrary, Charlie does not truly show that he is glad he got to be smart, as stated on July 28, the same day: “That’s why Im going away from New York for good … Im going someplace where nobody knows that Charlie Gordon was once a genus and now he cant even reed a book or rite good” (Keyes, 305). Although he did mention that he was grateful that he got to be smart for a little while, he is so ashamed he does not want to see any of his friends. He thinks they will laugh at him and make fun of him like before. He is telling Miss Kinnian that everything is good, but when you really analyze the text, Charlie is only doing that so she will feel better.
it seems like that...making sure she is okay and trying to keep her happy. Margaret also takes care of Ellen... she is also the wife of Ellen’s father if you didn’t know already. She seemed caring and sweet kinda like I am unless you get annoying which is a lot of people but I’m able to keep quiet.
Even though in the story Gordon had said multiple times that he wasn’t a hero “Again, as I said, I’m no hero-I’m barley able to take care of myself, if you want to know the truth-but I fell in beside her without a word” (page 99 La Conchita). I think that Gordon actually was a hero for helping this woman and saving her husband and daughter. He could’ve stayed on the side lines and let the woman try to rescue her husband and daughter on her own, but he didn’t. Some might say that he shouldn’t have let the liver sit there unsupervised but I think that he needed to help the woman right at that point or the husband and daughter could’ve died.
When Sunflower left, Arimu thought about a bunch of ‘if’s’. She tried to push these thoughts away, she then thought, “I have taught him all I can under the wind people’s laws, she thought angrily. He has nothing more to pay me… I owe him nothing.” Some people may think that Arimu is just being too prideful, but really, all she wants to do is to help more, but she can’t. Not under her people’s laws.
This refusal of the call shows that Susie is still a child and not mentally prepared for death, nor does she want to believe that a kind neighbor is the one who killed her. At first, Susie seems to be thriving in the In Between, the world that her little brother, Buckley, dubs as “the arc of blue between heaven and earth”. However, she’s still torn between the urges she had while living and the call of the lighthouse that will show her the truth and allow her to move on. Eventually, supernatural aid kickstarts Susie’s development and want to leave the In Between to move on peacefully. The call of the lighthouse signifies the supernatural aid that Susie needs to start her journey to heaven.
early on in the story, the parents were telling the children that they were gonna turn off the house for some time. Wendy was still crying and Peter joined her again. " Just a moment, just one moment, just another moment of nursery," they wailed. "Oh, George," said the wife, "it can 't hurt.
(Fitzgerald 62). Gatsby had been ignorant of the fact that his love interest, Daisy, had in fact moved on after his departure, and went on to create a family of her own. He was essentially not accepting reality for what it was and living life in denial. Unfortunately, he continued to show signs of hopelessness throughout the novel; “He wanted nothing less of Daisy than that she should go to Tom and say: "I never loved you." … after she was free, they were to go back to Louisville and be married from her house—just as if it were five years ago,” (Fitzgerald 59).
The parents had gone on what they called a vacation. They said they wouldn’t be back for a while. They had left Shouta in charge of his little siblings. Now nine months later and they still hadn’t come home. They tried to call their parents but no reply after a few months they all gave up hope.
Thus, he appreciates her as a friend, despite unable to express his gratitude. Philip never had a friend; Ruth reached out and supported him anyways. When Macca stole his journal, Ruth strived to find and return it to him. This made Philip think losing his journal is a “wonderful thing.” To him, Ruth is more than a friend, but a Caregiver at the dictated school.
This is a pivotal scene where Huck ultimately decides that there is no reason Jim shouldn 't be free. I think that he was far enough into the trip with Jim where their bond had grown to be that of either brothers or father and son. This allowed him to think independently with his own memories and emotions, not society 's. He also realizes that his bond with the Widow is insignificant when compared to the love and protection that Jim has provided to Huck. This renouncement appalled me because she provided Huck with a home and education when both of Huck 's parents were absent. Will Huck learn to love the Widow for her generosity after Jim is
“This trial is going to be painful to watch…” Josiah said. I’m Josiah Sane, I moved over here with my grandmother. She always had a weak heart so she didn’t come to the trial, but would ask how it went later on at around supper time. He was from Britain and came over so his grandmother could work we got kicked out and took a boat here took a few quizzes, we made it though we had no money so we moved to Maycomb County.
Even though I, the naïve, little first grader, did not know it at the time, my friendship with Alana, like all those friendships, would end just as quickly as it began. When I moved away from my home to an unfamiliar, almost alien place, I felt disconsolate and alone, that I would never make friends, until she came along. Alana kept her long brown, golden curls tied up in a ponytail and it always bobbed every time she walked. She looked similar to her mom with her hazel eyes, slightly plump physique, and tanned skin. She towered over me and even other children.
However at the end it’s clear that the reader’s reaction can change when she has the conversation with the Misfit, she repeatedly says “I know you’re a good man... You wouldn’t shoot a lady”(14-15), because the reader know thinks that she really is selfish but she’s also ignorant and petty. The only reason that the grandmother is saying positive things about the misfit is because her life is at risk and the second part of the quote shows that she cares about herself and doesn 't ask if he would kill all the family. It shows all her pettiness making the reader think “No wonder why June Star wants her dead”. This is the grandmother’s characteristics of being selfish, ignorant, petty and etc but underneath all the evil that the grandmother has there can be some good things in her just like the
