In the modern day, the most important trait looked for in the profession field is not a strong work ethic, leadership, or charisma, but rather a strong sense of integrity. In “The Old Man and the Sea”, Ernest Hemingway utilizes Santiago as a protagonist who maintains a strong sense of integrity and chooses to never boast despite being presented with many opportunities to do so. While boasting may temporarily satisfies various insecurities, it leaves no lasting impression on the crowd who hears it. Hemingway utilizes Santiago to exemplify how to be a truly remarkable person: by displaying an absence of of arrogance, and maintaining a high level of integrity.
If you like to watch criminal shows like “Criminal Minds” or “CIS” then reading a criminal justice book would be right for you. Bryan Stevenson, an author and gifted young attorney of Just Mercy: A Story of Justice And Redemption was named one of the best books of the year by The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Boston Globe Time, and The Seattle Times. Bryan Stevenson is an African American who studies at Harvard Law School but was working in Georgia for an internship. He is so dedicated into helping inmates who were in the lower class, and the wrongly condemned in the justice system. Once, you start reading the first page of his book you will never want to put that book down.
Some pro’s in his mind would be not having anybody chasing after him (which isn’t actually true, because Pap the Widow and Judge Thatcher are all out looking for him hoping not to find a dead body), not getting beat or scolded any more. Some cons would be that he will be alone and he’ll have to learn how to survive on his own. In my opinion I think that Huck made the best choice possible at the time. Huck is very good at adapting to his surroundings and has the skill and intelligence to care for himself. The outcome of Huck’s choice is him canoeing to Jackson’s island and in doing so he finds Jim camping out by
Their bond would not have occurred as quickly on the mainland as it did on the river. This is because of the stereotypes of a relationship between a white boy/man and a slave. On the river there is no judgment of who they are, Huck treats Jim as a human and gives him respect while Jim is thankful and respectful towards Huck because of his willingness to help him escape slavery. In some ways, Jim has become a father figure to Huck in his life. Huck’s father Pap is a drunk and overall terrible human, while Jim is a respectful man who does not try to steal Huck’s money and just wants
Beowulf the Artificial Man Over the course of history, the righteous identity of masculinity has been tainted by the stereotypical profile that is governed by machoism. These stereotypes eliminate any emotions, activities, and beliefs that exhibit weakness. These stereotypes cause men to seek unrelenting physical strength, a mind of iron, and isolation. However, these are only stereotypes; a man is something much more than attempting to live their life as a masquerade. A perfect example of a man following this mockery of masculinity is the title character hailing from the epic Beowulf.
In the movie the change in his morality shows that just because he is a hero it does not mean that he is perfect nor does he not make any mistakes. After reading Beowulf, then watching it, the audience can see there are major differences between the morality of Beowulf from the book and the morality of Beowulf from the
He also did help fight against racism in the town by persuading people in the courtroom and inform them of a man equally as good and capable of that as a white man would be. Atticus was known for his hardworking attribute and his will to succeed in whatever needed to be accomplished. He showed in the court what success really was. According to Metress, Atticus was chosen and did not voluntarily defend a black citizen of Maycomb. Although Atticus did not volunteer that does not make him a bad representative.
Odysseus is an admirable hero because he uses strategy instead of strength to overcome many obstacles. Odysseus is a very strong man who uses his strength to guide him along his journey. But, Odysseus is also a very intelligent man. He uses his logic to his advantages. He uses his intellect to get out of Polyphemus’s cave and deciding to rick 6 men to Scylla, instead of sacrificing everyone to Charybdis.
Henry makes a point later that he would do whatever it takes to tend to his men’s needs. This seems to be in accordance to his morals of honor as strength in numbers was very present in his reasoning and decision making. He felt obligated to do everything he could for his men, especially Glass because he believed they had a deep
As timely now as it was written 48 years ago, “The Outsiders” is a dramatic and enduring work of fiction written by S.E Hinton. Books such as “The Outsiders” have the power to affect readers’ lives and stay with them forever. Ponyboy’s life was not easy, he had it tough and he is very aware of that. But he finds ways to make it work. I really liked this book because it was like a “Blast in the past” sorta thing because we are reading a book about a 14 year old in the mid 60s, and he is talking about the issues he has and the differences between the two groups the Socs and the Greasers,we get a rare glimpse of a boy 's life in the 60s and we get to read a unique piece of literature which we can’t find nowhere else.
Daniel Marks Epstein published Lincoln’s Men in 2009. Epstein is a biographer who has actually written books about Lincoln before, Lincoln and Whitman: Parallel Lives in Civil War Washington and The Lincolns Portrait of a Marriage, are the other two books that actually pushed him to write this book. His research for this story was due to the other research he had done for the other two Lincoln books, as well him going to the Library for more information. Epstein is qualified to write on this topic because he is a biographer, and he has done extensive research on President
There was no way that the rebels could have handled Britain and France, considering France was almost a deciding factor in the revolutionary war. Hamilton would also always have the manners of a soldier. It was said he always moved and stood just like a soldier and that so were his ideas and thoughts though like a soldier. Hamilton also judged the people around by the same aspect to which he judged himself. In the history books, George Washington was considered a great man because he was calm in battle.
In the novel And Then There Were None, one of the most intriguing characters is Justice Wargrave. Wargrave is a very smart man, however he chooses to make the decisions for everyone on the island and the characters oblige. One example of a judger, from MBTI, is “Are product oriented (emphasis is on completing the task)” (P. Tieger; B. Tieger 4). For example, when Christie exemplifies this trait in the following quote “ It would be advisable, I think, if we met to discuss the situation…”
As a student in high school, one will read countless books to pass their English courses. Often times the books are somber and dramatic. Usually, the books are boring. It is not often that they get to read a book so unorthodox that they are left thinking, “Huh, was this actually a good book?” Kurt Vonnegut wrote just that, good books.
