He said the same about his stuff, that they can take something and he will learn to live without it, but take something everyday until they are reaching for his eyes, heart, soul, etc., is something that he can not deal with (In the belly of the beast). I think that this is where his anger comes from. One of the problems with corruption in penitentiaries was that if a guard disliked an inmate, that inmate had no say weather the guard is telling the truth or not. Especially if they had an aggressive background like Jake Abbott, he talked about how when he got transferred once that not one day after he got there one of the guards said the he assaulted him, even if
The snake represents Perry’s troubles or conflicts he has faced that hold him back from ever being able to be free. Finally, the bird represents his father. His father was the one who would encourage him to be good in school and to learn from his mistakes. But the minute that Perry was no longer with his father, he lost his constant reminder to stay out of trouble. Perry’s past played a major role in his development of becoming a murderer because of the miserable experiences he went through and the troubles he never seemed to
His eagerness to find the truth, yet not get caught in the mob set him apart from the other judges. He is the first in the court to question their justice, and inevitably loses all former weight he held in the court, mainly due to his own exodus. With this the voice of reason in the novel is also crushed, leaving only false accusations and hysteria. The day John Proctor is scheduled to hang, Mary Warrens deposition, and his first arrival in Salem all shaped him into the desperate character the reader witnesses and sympathizes with at the end of The Crucible by Arthur
The son finds his father in a saloon and after beating him up, his father explains to him that he named him Sue so that he would learn to be tough considering his dad would never be around to prepare him for situations where he needed to be tough. “Son, this world is rough, and if a man’s gonna make it he’s gotta be tough...I know you’d have to get tough or die , and it’s the name the helped t make you strong.” (Johnny Cash) They make peace, yet they still part their separate ways. “I called him Pa, he called me son, and I come away with a different point of view” is one of the last lines of the song. In the Ghetto however, ended in a more negative matter, but with a somewhat stronger message. As a result of the boy’s influences and life on the street, he dies.
be, it also teaches you the consequences of the acts you make that affect in many things in your life. I also saw that different social class type of people cannot be too friends with each other because they didn`t like each other because they were different from each other. I liked the point of view of the story because it was a first person point of view and the narrator was a boy living in gang that was in a war, it really was interesting that the narrator was only twelve years old and he wanted to fight in rumbles and do things people in gangs do, he was very
“Atticus said no, it wasn’t that sort of thing, that there were other ways of making people into ghosts.” ( Chpt. 1, p11) Atticus says this to Scout and Jem in chapter one when the children speculate about the methods of intimidation Mr. Radley used to keep Boo Radley out of sight. Jem suspects that Mr. Radley keeps Boo Radley chained to the bed most of the time. Atticus points out to the children that there are “other ways of making people into ghosts”. The children frequently question their father about the Radleys, especially Boo, the mysterious recluse from three doors down.
The reason I think this is because Tom is an innocent man who was trying to help Mayella Ewell with her chores, when he was accused of raping her. Tom was a hard working man who never gave up until he was shot by police men trying to escape prison for a crime he didn't commit. Another life lesson I found interesting to me was "your ever really understand a person until you climb into his skin and work around in it." (chapter 3 page 33). U find this lesson interesting because today people say until you walk around in there shoes, but Atticus says "until you walk around in there skin."
Because Darnell has never been to prison he can only train James on stereotypes of prison behavior. After James failing all attempts of strength training, Darnell attempts to train James to attempt homosexual activity to stay “safe” in prison. Farrell states, “We’re playing fictitious characters who are articulating some of the attitudes and misconceptions that already exist” (Ge & Bennett, 2015). This is a push the bar R-rated comedy that race, gender and social class throughout the film. Walking a fine line between funny and hitting home, I feel this film, will help bring to light many of the stereotypical feelings many have encountered, and by making fun of these stereotypes, may just help those moviegoers in realizing how outlandish some of these stereotypes
The novel, To Kill A Mockingbird, says, “Nobody knew what form of intimidation Mr. Radley employed to keep Boo out of sight, but Jem figured that Mr. Radley kept him chained to the bed most of the time” (Lee 11). In this scene Miss Stephanie Crawford, Scout and Jem Finch are talking about Boo Radley. From this line the reader can tell that Boo does not go out of the house and he is mysterious. Furthermore, when Scout, Jem, and Dill pretend to be Boo and stab his father, this helps the reader build Boo’s characterization that he is evil. Atticus Finch’s views on racism are bespoke in Part I, to foreshadow what will happen at the Tom Robinson case.
Through Atticus and the trial, Jem loses his innocence by learning about prejudice, bravery, and that the justice system is crippled. Throughout the book, Jem learns about prejudice and not to judge because no one is just like him and people are different. He learns most about this from Atticus. For example, when Scout comes home from school and gets angry because her teacher, Miss Caroline, doesn’t want her to read at home. Atticus responds by telling her that she shouldn’t say anything about Miss Caroline because Scout doesn’t

When Elie’s dad is close to death, an officer savagley beats him in front of Elie. “ I did not move, I was afraid.” he then feels guilty about his lack of action. Rather that helping, his father, he watches quietly as he is beaten when he struggles to hang on to life. Of course there would have definitley been a severe punishment for Elie or any other prisoner who spoke up against the guards but this happens so often in the camps that it becomes implied that this silent, resistant behavoir of the prisoners is what allows these types of punishments to occur everyday in the camps. The fear that Nazis created in the camps silenced the prisoners and made them vulnerable to everything they subjected them to.
