She works with some of the local “help” to write a book about many of their lives. It reflects on good and bad experiences from being a servant to their superiors. When the community finds out that Skeeter believes as she does, they do many things to punish her for believing so. Mainly, other female characters explicitly exclude her from clubs and activities that had she had been a part of for her entire life. However, this does not affect Skeeter very much, which angers Hilly Holbrook and the rest
The villain in Kathryn Stockett’s work, The Help, is Miss Hilly Holbrook. What makes Miss Hilly a villain is that she is controlling and manipulative to everyone, she also does not like the idea of integration, and the last thing that makes Miss Hilly a villain is she is very rude to those around her. Miss Hilly Holbrook is villainous because she controls and manipulates not only her “friends” but also her help and strangers in order to get what she wants. In chapter twenty one Miss Hilly says, “I want that initiative in the newsletter before election time…or I'm calling upstairs, missy” (Stockett, 330). In this particular part of the book Miss Hilly is trying to get Skeeter to put her bathroom initiative in the monthly league newsletter by threatening to call the people in charge of the whole league organization and get her fired.
Judge Hathorne is displayed as a very ruthless and almost unforgiving kind of person. This can be seen, especially, as he is accusing Martha Corey of being a witch and saying that she is “hurting these children” (Miller, 180) His ruthlessness can also be seen as he is basically forcing Mary Warren to faint to be able to prove that she was lying. (Miller, 191) His unforgiving nature is constant, though, unlike Reverend Hale. Reverend Hale begins the play completely certain and sure of the righteousness in his calling. But as time passes, it is seen how much this character has been corrupted.
Moreover, both authors portray how being afraid of losing reputation also cause people to act in selfish ways. In The Crucible Abigail only tried to save her reputation by telling all the lies and accusing others. In Lord of the Flies since Jack was afraid of losing his reputation as an authoritarian, he did not mind hurting others. However, in The Crucible, the society seems to also be the reason causing fear, whereas, fear in The Lord of the Flies is mainly caused by a dictator. The reason why Abigail is so afraid of people finding out about her affair with John is because of the pressure from the society around her.
To an outside observer like a journalist or legislator, why the girl enjoyed the film so much is obvious: the girl is a budding sociopath as a result of watching the scarring film, and will soon go on a murderous rampage of her own at school. However, the author then specifies the girl's real intention: an adolescent crush on one of the actors. With very rare exception - and such exceptions are in need of mental health counselling - children are curious and seek information and media innocently. Nonetheless, institutions like the movie rating system are still in place, and are often a parent's first resource when
This impacts the audience as they would feel disgusted with Antonio, and sympathy for Barbara. It is then shown that Michele has ethics and morals, as he realises “the forfeit was too harsh” (page 19), so he stopped Barbara and he did the forfeit for her, as he actually lost the race. This makes
In the novel, Daisy is the villain, she takes people’s lives, turns them upside down, blames it on someone else, and walks away unharmed and unscathed. That is the epitome of deceiving and selfish. Even in the book, Nick, her own cousin, says that “They were careless people, Tom and Daisy—they smashed up things and creatures and then retreated back into their money or their vast carelessness, or whatever it was that kept them together, and let other people clean up the mess they had made.” This is the honest truth, and shows that Nick does not want to become the people who admired to be all summer long. He knew that living that kind of life is not worth the heartbreak and the turmoil. Daisy lived the life all of us dreamed about, until we learned who the real the Daisy Buchanan was, then we resented her.
Like the title suggests, there is a lesson learned at the end of Bambara’s story but Sylvia has a hard time admitting she learned anything. When asked about what they’ve learned, Sylvia “[walks] away and Sugar has to run to catch up”(Bambara 6). Since Sylvia is the narrator, readers are aware of her thoughts and know Sylvia has indeed learned a lesson. This is clear when Sylvia talks about the importance of $35 to her family compared to the people who shop at FAO. Instead, Sylvia stays silent when asked, not wanting Miss Moore to know she has learned something.
Rasheed was happy with Laila, but until Mariam got to know her, she thought Laila was a no good husband stealer.

Bullying Can Be Prevented Bullying is a form of violence to pick on victims because they are different from their bullies, have insecurity/jealousy or home problems. The hate towards their victim has something to do with the victim having an unusual gift or being intelligent the bullies has yet to become. It is important that this behavior should be prevented or it will become worse. Bullying is one of the main issues public and private schools have to face on a day-to-day basis. When the bully takes it too far, the victim snaps and retaliates by fighting him/her back physically or verbally.
