Bob verbally offends the greasers by calling them “White trash with long, greasy hair.” Furthermore, Bob was a heavy drinker, who was “reeling and passing out in the streets” often.

Most of these innocent boys eventually turned into savages who broke rules, hungered for blood, and killed others . However, just like Anne Frank, Ralph, Piggy, and Simon-the protagonists- of Lord of the Flies acted as evidence that demonstrated human were born with good nature via their thoughts and actions. Firstly, Ralph, the protagonist, proved that human were born with good nature through his action and thought. For example, on page 184, while Ralph was looking at Jack’s tribe, who were waiting for Robert to allow them eat, and frightened of how nature had turned these innocent kids into savages, Ralph cried aloud, “ No. They’re not as bad as that.

This passage in the novel shows us the psychological change of Pony boy : “A panic was rising in me as I listened to Johnny’s quiet voice go on and on ‘Johnny!’ I nearly screamed.
The Evil Within In The Lord of the Flies, Golding questions the innocence of man. When a few boys get stranded on an island Golding shows the effects that truly push man to the edge; however the contentious question of the root of their madness. The boys go through plenty from arriving on the island to finally escaping the darkness that the island has made them become. Many critics argue the source of the madness of the boys, whether it remained there forever or developed with an environment. Some argue that the boys were always mad but always restricted by an authoritative figure.
Those friends she made eventually she lost them, but she never lost the hope she had. She lost the life she had when she was a young girl but she found the life she wanted even after all the tragedies she had to go through. Even after the war and all the hardships she had to go through to survive she still found happiness. “All But My Life” had so many great things to say about life, hope, and how to keep on going even though everything inside of you doesn’t want to. The author used great imagery trying to show us what the places she stayed looked like, with everything she had to go through at each camp and the things that happened each passing year.
“You can change things. You can repair mistakes. You can restart your whole life if you have to. But some things you never get back.” (Nelson ) Maddie, in my opinion is a very sympathetic, yet strong girl. Being peer pressured is a stressful situation, especially after just getting out of
The Bird thought they were going to hate it, but, “To deprive him of the pleasure of seeing them miserable, they made a point of being jolly” (179). If Louie would have shown he was despondent, the Bird would possess all the power. Louie didn’t want the Bird to see him in pain because he wanted to take control and turn the power around. He needed to be resilient and stay mentally strong. Later, for stealing, the Bird had made every man in the camp punch Louie and a few others in the
She uses a metaphor in her song to reveal that no matter what, she will get back up again stronger than ever. In her song, after she feels sad, she says “I will be rising from the ground” (line 12). This is saying that she is getting past her tough times in her life and is finally becoming stronger again and will enlighten people that she will never give up. Moving on, Lovato uses allusion to relate to her theme, she says “All my windows still are broken But I'm standing on my feet” (line 18 and 19). This shows how Lovato is like glass because she was dropped in her past and never recovered, and still is broken, however, she can still handle it due to her strength of believing in herself.
In the book The Lord of the Flies we can see that many conflicts happen while the kids are in the island, most of these conflicts are struggled to be solved. The main conflict and the one that I 'm going to be talking about is the conflict between Ralph and Jack, were both boys compete for power.

Its is easy to see that in this literary piece the author uses many conflicts to make the reader visualize wants happening in the island. Ralph is voted by the boys to be the leader of the group, in the book he represents leadership, civilization and order.
The author manages to combine happy moments with sad ones even though the sad ones takes the larger share. In addition, he accomplished his aim of having an audience that is glued to the book all along sine it is both engaging and informative. The author has a perception that the world is composed of more bad things than the good ones. This novel will be important to me as I explore the themes of post-apocalyptic fears and human struggles. However, I do feel that he leans too heavily on sadness

The Cherokees suffered illness and the death of their beloved ones, they were tired, but had to keep moving, forced by the soldiers. The act was cruel and inhumane, and the forced movement of the Cherokees was not a correct action taken at that point in history. It was unfair for the Cherokees, because the general was not willing to move. It violated the Cherokee’s rights, caused a great number of casualties, and violated the constitution. The action should not have been taken by Americans at that point of time, and it shouldn’t be done by any religion or nation and any time.
Unfortunately the great Reconstruction era was coming to an end. It was either Northern neglect or Southern resistance that ended the reconstruction of the South. Northern neglect destroyed the reconstruction effort because they agreed to take the troops out of the South and they became unwilling to help
