A foster child in Nazi Germany who's hiding a Jew would not be expected to be selfish but don't judge a book by its cover (see what I did there). As the story plays out, Liesel gets more curious and disregards the well-being of others. Liesel lies to Rudy saying that's all she could find but obviously that wasn't the case.It is evident now that Liesel steals, and along with books she also like to steal food, but only for herself.

To the Puritans, they believed in collective guilt and that one should repent for their sinful actions till their death; they viewed sin as a socially unacceptable crime. Hawthorne himself agrees with the idea of ‘doctrine of original sin,’, however, he opposes to the Puritanical traditional thinking and suggests how sin is an educative effect that alters one into an incomparable wise figure before the ‘sinful’ act (Mills 97).“‘Among all its bad influences, the black veil had the one desirable effect of making its wearer a very efficient clergyman. By the aid of his mysterious emblem---for there was no other apparent cause---he became a man of awful power over souls that were in agony for sin”’ (Hawthorne 262). Through the use an awe tone, Hawthorne illustrates how the effect of the veil has transformed Minister Hooper into a more effective minister than before. From the words that provide the perception of awe, ‘efficient,’ ‘mysterious,’and ‘awful,’ it depicts a sense of reverential respect yet incorporated fear within it.
He responds, only to tell her that nothing happened in between them and to forget about her hopes about him entirely. This causes the whole ‘witch’ mayhem and in the end, Abigail accuses Elizabeth of ‘witchcraft’ by only pointing a finger at others, making sure none of the accusations fall back on her. This scene in “The Crucible”, is important because it shows that something did in fact happen between Abigail Williams and John Proctor, and that Abigail will not accept Proctor telling her to forget everything that happened. As seen in both the film and book, this causes Abigail to counteract furiously and overdramatically, which begins the chaos that the town

In Lisa Parkers “Snapping Beans”, there is a sense that there is a major difference in the speaker’s world, moreover than when she is with her grandmother. In lines 24-38 in Literature to go, the speaker talks about all the things she has experienced while at college.

Not only does she take them, but she also hides them from Tom so he is unable to find them. The narrator illustrates, “… found nothing but a heart and liver tied up.”(Irving online). Since, Mrs. Walker was not the purest of being of beings when she tried making a deal with the devil, he did not like what she proposed to him. The Devil killed Mrs. Walker but left the heart and liver since they were so tainted by who Mrs. Walker was that they have no value. Overall, Mrs. Walker’s archetypes of greed led to her own
The outcome of that wasn’t expected though, but who would want their family to suffer throughout the rest of your life because of a problem like the one Abigail caused? You can’t blame Abigail only because Proctor was apart of it, he led himself into getting with her; it works both ways. Abigail had went overboard with the lying, and the acting throughout the witch trials, and she didn’t realize that until after the bird scene. When Abigail realized what she was doing, she didn’t face her problems, she ran away because she already knew what was going to happen to her, she was dumbfounded. John Proctor wasn’t a bad person, but he wasn’t good either, he just made bad choices.
The rebellion does not become a problem until she needs the corporations help to pay for her feed. The corporations refuse to save her life because of her inability to buy their items. “We’re sorry, Violet Durn...don’t feel like you are a reliable investment...check out some of the great bargains...might be able to create a consumer portrait of you that would interest our investment team.” (Anderson 247) The corporation 's rejection to aid left a passionate, determined, young girl with a broken heart and a death sentence. Violet’s story in Feed is a prime example of how sometimes, no matter how good your intentions, change and being different backfires and, essentially, leads one to sabotage
