She doesn’t have any friends throughout the course of the story, except for the two men, Rooster and LeBoeuf, who are traveling with her. Which is why she wants to avenge her father’s death without any help, even though no one believes that she can complete this task. This can be seen when Charles Portis writes. “This needs to be done for me. I am young, but I am the only one who can bring Chaney to justice”(Portis, 11).
I’ve just held my own son in my arms, and now I see right here in front of me another corpse. Alas for his suffering mother”. (lines 1438-1443 Creon wishes that someone would just kill him. (lines 1452-1454) “My fear now makes me tremble. Why won’t someone strike out at me, pierce my heart with a double-bladed
Dee Ann was left obsessed with what had happened. Every year her husband brings up the names of those involved, hoping he would say them and she would just let it go like nothing happened (Yarbrough 632). Because of this, her inability to let go, Chuckie was often away from home, and Dee Ann feared he was cheating on her. She almost questions his friend, but “if he has looked surprised, it would have worried her, and if he hadn't, it would have worried her more…” (Yarbrough 637), so she doesn't ask. What he's father did to her mother caused he to have no trust in her own husband.
And lastly, he must come to terms with the fact that he caused the death of his wife, son, and niece. Therefore, Creon best represents a tragic hero. For a character to represent goodness, they must evoke pity from the audience. Creon must step up to take the throne of Eteocles, one his recently fallen nephews. Meaning that Creon, still grieving, must take to
After the death of his wife, Elizabeth, Victor grieves for the murders his monster inflicted: “The death of William, the execution of Justine, the murder of Clerval, and lastly of my wife, even at that moment I knew not that my only friends were safe from the malignity of the fiend” (188). Victor sees directly what acquiring knowledge has done to him. His creation has destroyed his life and now he has to deal with the consequences of his actions. Victor reveals another example of how knowledge is important to be pursued. After two years of not being in communication with Victor, Justin writes to Victor saying, “You have been ill, and even the constant letters of dear kind Henry are not sufficient to reassure me on your account.
While also in the court room Elizabeth told John about the ending to Giles tough trial, she said, “He were not hanged. He would not answer ay or nay to his indictment; for if he denied the charge they’d hang him surely, and auction out his property. So he stand mute, and died a Christian under the law. And so his sons will have his farm (Miller 84).” Giles Corey is an old, wise, and strong man in Salem. His own crucible starts when he first wonders what his wife and is reading and why she hides it from.
He is completely against a request that his aunt, Tante Lou, asks of him. Since he is an educated man, Tante Lou wants him to visit the local jail and speak with Jefferson. Grant is very skeptical, saying, “He’s dead now. All I can do is try to keep the others from ending up like this—but he’s gone from us. There’s nothing I can do anymore” (Gaines 14).
Obsessive love is written all over this. That’s not to even clarify the action of him hurting Alice because all she could say is no. This was only the beginning of the wrath to come in the next decade. Yet, people knew about how he felt towards Alice and nobody stood up for her due to her skin color and her classification at the time to be “property.” Consequently, shouldn’t property—land, human being, whatever—be kept to the best of our abilities. We don’t treat brand new BMW’s like an off road vehicle because the car isn’t made for off-roading and we sure as hell do not rape a teacher because we feel like we can take better care of her than her husband; brutally
Proctor’s case is ultimately not believed by the court because Elizabeth did not tell the truth, therefore he will pay the consequences of his actions according to the court. The morning before his conviction, he speaks to his wife Abigail and confesses by saying “I cannot mount gibbet like a saint, it is fraud, My Honesty is broke, Elizabeth, I am no good man, nothing's spoiled by giving them this lie that were not rotten long before.” (Miller 126). By this quotation in the text the reader is able to tell that Proctor, who knows is going to die, expresses his disappointment in himself and asks Elizabeth for forgiveness for his crime of adultery. This in turn shows the sporadic change of proctors situation. Starting as a secret, later becoming evidence and finally being used as a
Early on in the novel, Twain makes a mockery of how impractical religion is. Expressed through the eyes of Huckleberry Finn, Huckleberry Finn defiantly disagrees with Miss Watson and Widow Douglas about the concepts of religion. He actively scoffs at Widow Douglas’ devotion to God for “she got out her book and learned [Huck] about Moses … but by-and-by she let out that Moses had been dead a considerable long time; so then [Huck] didn’t care no more about him; because [Huck] don’t take no stock in dead people” (2). Huck Finn’s pragmatism takes Widow Douglas’ pious teachings and throws them out the window. In fact, he completely disregards and does not even consider the potential benefits of what
