Within the book, Chief Bromden holds the interesting perspective that the ward and essentially the world is a Combine sought to make people conform; however, this concept is lost within the movie. Bromden believes the Combine and the ward is a “huge organization that aims to adjust the Outside as well as she [Nurse Ratched] has the Inside…”(Part 1, Ch.4, 28). The greater emphasis and mentioning of the Combine through Chief Bromden within the book develops upon the institution that Kesey wanted to show to the readers. Kesey would be angered by losing the aspect of Chief Bromden’s view on the manipulative Combine in the movie as it takes away from driving force and perspective which explains why Chief Bromden and sometimes other patients act in defiance of being controlled. The Combine truly sheds light on the institution in the battle of the individuals vs. institution that Kesey sought to represent and is a paramount part of the story which was left out in the movie, thus Kesey would have disliked this difference.

Abusing the innocence of a person goes against virtuous morals.

However, Kingston also reveal that the warrior woman encounters her husband and they have a child. The story envelops society’s ideals of women as homemakers and Kingston’s ideals of women as strong, independent people of society. Although the author states “There are at least two reasons for Kingston to dislike the story of Fa Mu Lan” (Lee 96), it seems that Kingston personally relates to the story. Fa Mu Lan has words of revenge carved onto her back as an expression and reminder of her cause and the devastation of her village.
Scout learned to treat everybody equally. Atticus led a great example for Scout by taking Tom Robinsons case; He tried to win just as hard as he would have for a white man. Anytime Scout would ask questions or make comments about other people, Atticus would remind her not to judge others. For example, when Scout asks Atticus if he's a “nigger lover” he responds "I certainly am. I do my best to love everybody....

Straight from the heart is a wonderful, but depressing passage narrated by a journalist named Tim Collins. The passage is about the tragic speech spoken by Marie Fatayi- Williams and the terroristic incident that lead to the possible killing of her son Anthony Fatayi- Williams. Marie’s speech is fueled by a couple different topics, which in their entirety explain how she feels about the loss of her son to be a traumatic event. These topics make the speech very powerful and meaningful to the audience according to Collins. The narration is primarily to explain why Marias speech is so powerful and why it inspired and touched so many people’s hearts, while Marie defies the pointlessness of terroristic acts followed by the tragedy.
I gained inspiration from the movie Pleasantville, since the characters and themes mirror my poster, and what I am trying to represent. In the film, colour is used to differentiate between two universes and the ‘black and white’ society is a closed universe, naïve about what is going on around them.

This relates to my poster as the society that has access lots of materialistic things, they have been exposed to materials and the need for objects. They are unsheltered from the mayhem of materials and think that materials and physical comfort are more important than spiritual values.
In the short story “The Scarlet Ibis,” James Hurst elucidates the conflict between pride and compassion, and ultimately demonstrates that pride overcomes compassion. “The Scarlet Ibis” illustrates a tale of the narrator and his brother, Doodle, who had a physical disability and wasn’t expected to live after birth. Often, Brother resents the fact that he has a brother unable to do the same things he does; sometimes he loves and cares for his brother, taking Doodle everywhere with him, but other times he can only be mean, forcing Doodle to touch the coffin made for him. When Doodle turns five, Brother sets out to teach Doodle how to walk—even though the doctors said he wasn’t able to walk—and his family was joyous when they learned that he taught
