This pushback is shown by multiple instances in which Jem and Scout are made fun of for their father is a “n****r lover”. Secondly, Atticus knows he is going to lose the case for he knows that the moral character of Maycomb is not high enough to be able to see true innocence on account of evidence. This realization did not deter him, for he believed that “the one place a man should get a square deal is in a courtroom” (295). Thus he delivered on behalf of his morals and completed the case. This again shows moral courage, for Atticus knew that he if he forfeited his defense of Tom Robinson the ridicule would stop.
Later when he finds out what she was doing he makes sure people keep it on the down low before rumors start spreading.

1: Ramzan’s Argument with Akhmed (322-327) Ramzan argues with Akhmed to convince him not to give himself up to the feds, demonstrating his camaraderie despite his distress with Havaa’s disappearance. More than friendship, he wants to relay to Akhmed the torturous qualities of the Landfill. Although Akhmed believes that he should “owe Dokka my silence more than I owe you anything” (322), Ramzan believes that “inside us there is a word we cannot pronounce and that is who we are” (322). He thinks that Akhmed is out of his mind, and doesn’t understand what he’s feeling, but still doesn’t want him to think he owes Dokka his life. Ramzan, as someone who has lived through the Landfill, knows that it is “in the business of changing lives” (325).
The meaning of strong steel can resemble John’s strength. Even though he was convicted of a crime he did not commit, he doesn’t confess, causing him to hang, so his wife won’t have to. When John explains to Elizabeth that he will confess to the court, she understands that his reasoning is wanting them to go home and reestablish their family.“You came to save my soul, did you not? Here! I have confessed myself; it is enough” (Miller 104) Although steel can resemble his strength, it also symbolises how he has little dynamic in the story.
She did this because she didn't want to be seen in the act of doing so. She told her husband if he didn't do it, he wasn't a man in her eyes. So he had to do it to prove her wrong. “He’s here in double trust: First, as I am his kinsman and his subject, Strong both against the deed; then, as his host, Who should against his murderer shut the door, Not bear the knife myself ” (Act I Scene VII). This meaning that Macbeth would not do it unless he had to prove that he was a bare wit of a man.
She even admits that she may end up dead, but that it won’t affect her love and trust in Othello. Even up until she dies, Desdemona believes in her husband, referring to him as “my kind lord” and refusing to blame him for her death. While her death can’t be blamed directly on her confidence, if Desdemona had been more doubtful towards Othello, she may have been able to escape before he killed
When he tells Andy about Elmo Blatch it gives Andy hope, because he can use Tommy as a witness to prove his innocence and eventually be free from the prison without having to continue his hole behind the wallpaper. Tommy brought unrealistic hope to Andy because when the Warden discovers Tommy’s story he immediately wants Tommy checked out. Officer Hadley takes out Tommy as instructed by the Warden and it leaves Andy with no proof of Elmo Blatch’s existence. The Warden made sure Tommy had no way of taking Andy away from him because Andy was laundering money for him and he knew the money would be safe as long as Andy was present in the prison. Of course the Warden would want Andy there because Andy was making him so much more money than before, illegal or not.
In the novel, The Kite Runner, by Khaled Hosseini, the author uses foreshadowing and symbolism in order to contribute to the discourse on the topic of loyalty in society. In the beginning of the book, Hosseini uses foreshadowing when Amir talks about how “Hassan never denied [him] anything,” on page 4. This foreshadows to page 105 when Hassan says a simple “Yes,” to admit that he stole the watch and the cash when he did not. This shows Hassan’s loyalty because he would take the blame for Amir which shows what a good friend he is. Foreshadowing is also seen when Hassan has the dream about Amir going into the lake to show that there is no monster.
Claiming that he never truly did love her and proving that her father was right about him, “You should not have believ’d me, for virtue cannot/ so inoculate our old stock but we shall relish of it/ i lov’d you not.” (3.1.117-19) Hamlet’s motives for doing this could be to keep Ophelia out of everything and to not bring her anymore pain if anything was to happen to him as he went through with his plans. It could also be that he is still acting out as the anger/sadden son and that he needs to keep up with the act of seeming crazy to the onlookers. This action also connects to multiple other hasty and rash doings by hamlet that in a way is cutting of ties to his “old life” before he was visited by his father’s ghost and that thinking to himself, that if he’s going to succeed after everything he’s already done, he’ll need to cut ties to anybody that he could at one point had attachments to. There are hints in the line that Hamlet says to Ophelia after saying they need to make themselves clean of this relationship and cut all ties they had with each other from the past. At the same time saying that they shall “relish” in the memories which mean bring great joy to themselves thinking about how much
