Right after a hurricane warning was issued at the Glades, all the townsfolk gather at Tea Cake’s house and prepare for a feast. Janie cooks the meal, just like she did in Eatonville, but in this case, Tea Cake stays with her and encourages her by praising her young looks. Though Janie cooks and stays in the house, she is not rangebound like she is in Eatonville. Home cooked fresh beans along with other drinks and nibbles are served and everyone has a ebullient and mirthful evening. This meal is truly exemplary of communion because everyone, including Janie takes part in the evening, is comfortable with each other, and has a good time together.
Despite their friendship, however, Huck still doubts helping Jim escape. Huck wants to, “write a letter to Tom Sawyer and tell him to tell Miss Watson where [Jim] was.”(page 213 Twain). Huck feels bad about helping Jim runaway. He feels like he, “Was stealing a poor old woman’s N. that hadn 't ever done [him] no harm.”(page 213 Twain). He begins thinking about Mrs. Watson and her religion, thinking he would go to hell for helping Jim get away.
These families are breaking the rules of society and bring negativity into church. Bringing the guns builds a contrast to the preaching about brotherly love. Church is supposed to be a place of peace and freedom in opinion. Twain uses this scene to criticize how people practice religion and to change Huck’s view on religion. People just follow religion without thinking.
Hart’s mother had ‘grown’ to hate Broome as she did not have the ‘red dirt, mangroves and pearls in her blood’. Michael had always loved the rough open waters, the crimson red dirt and the loud bustling environment of Broome. Due to their differences, his relationship with his wife becomes strained and unstable. Moreover, Ida decides to go back to England during a highly dangerous time of war. Hart and Alice had ‘taken it for granted’ that they were going to see their mother again, but Michael takes it to heart.
In Chapter 16, when Huck sees Jim’s reaction to being near freedom, Huck describes his feeling as, “miserable”, “abusing”, “scorched”, and “die”. Although Jim is happy to face his future, Huck becomes burdened by societal beliefs and more importantly, his own moral values. For Huck, bestowing freedom to a slave is shameful and unethical; no different from one’s “property”. This also implies that Huck values the societies view more than his relationship with Jim. Later on, Huck’s view of the past changes as he separates his own conscience from the societal values.
We first see Scout experiencing racism in the street when Lafayette Dubose rudely teases her and Jem because her father is a “nigger-lover” for taking the case on the side of Tom Robinson. Jem destroys her flowers, and they both go home, but Atticus knows what they did and tells them the meaning of the phrase. Atticus tells them that it means someone who puts himself or herself above Negros, and that he is indeed a “nigger-lover” because he tries his best to love everybody. He goes on to explain that everybody will be saying that because no one wants the Negro to win in the trial, as the townspeople believe that will lead to worse crimes from Negroes. Therefore, Scout realizes this may happen many more
He learns about this through his mother who is an addict to it. He thinks that taking soma is a sin itself and tells his mother to stop. He slowly sees the darkness of the world he has been shown and is losing his innocent self. While morning the death of his mother some children make fun of him it is said that, “They had mocked him through his misery and remorse, mocked him with how hideous a note of cynical derision! Fiendishly laughing, they had insisted on the low squalor, the nauseous ugliness of the nightmare.” (Huxley 184).
These fictional personalities not only decide to do the wrong thing, they also are extremely selfish, greedy, and uncivilized. From the very beginning of the novel, Huck clearly states that he does not want to change his ways; “The Widow Douglas she took me for her son, and allowed she would civilize me…I got into my old rags and my sugar hogshead again, and
No one could possibly follow the strict regulations of abiding by all the principles of the church without sinning, or giving in to temptation at least once. Sadly, it is in everyone’s nature to violate their religious beliefs whether intentional or not. Although, literary critic Lawson makes one good point, “When he discovers that he is simply another sinner, simply another member of a corrupt race, he loses all dignity, all capacity for moral inquiry…then, for the first and only time in the story, he calls on God for assistance.” (Lawson 9) If there’s one thing that has not changed since the seventeenth century, it is that God is always there in times of
But I shall not allow you to bring up the children; I dare not trust them to you” (Ibsen). This comes to show how trapped Nora is in this fake, and loveless marriage and the great power men had over women. Moments after Torvald denounces Nora as his wife, she receives a letter from Krogstad saying that he regretted his actions and he

John Proctor fears his name’s identity, which is evident near the end of the play when he resists Deputy Danforth and Reverend Hale’s posting his name on the church door, accusing him of witchcraft (IV.712-717). John Proctor is Elizabeth Proctor’s husband, who involved in an affair with Abigail Williams when she was still working as the Proctor’s maid. Elizabeth fires Abigail, once she realizes her maid and her husband’s covert relationship. Elizabeth’s dismissal causes Abigail to become very angry, for women had little power at the time, let alone unmarried women like herself. By playing her Mafia-like wailing and doll piercing games and forcing the other Salem girl to participate, Abigail determines to terminate Elizabeth and keep John for herself (460-473).
“I come to see what mischief your uncle’s brewin’ now.” John Proctor says this to Abigail when she asks why he has come to town. Proctor is no saint. The uncle he is referring to is Reverend Parris, the minister of his parish or town. John Proctor has three key reasons why he doesn’t stand behind Parris. First, he is displeased at how much Parris speaks of hell in his sermons.
However, fear is not the only emotion used. The Puritans remorse when the Reverend tells them they “have offended Him” but God’s hands still prevent them “from falling into the fire every moment" (Edwards 81). The Reverend guilts the Puritans into reviving their faith by explaining that they offend God
Huck thinks of his decision to help Jim escape slavery as a bad and wicked idea.Twain intended Huck 's decision to be ironic. It is ironic because we, as the readers know that Huck is actually doing the right thing in freeing Jim and that slavery is a wrong act. Huck 's maturity progresses throughout the novel to this moment. At the beginning of the novel, he thought that nothing was wrong with slavery and it was okay to own slaves , but he has grown morally to oppose slavery and be willing to risk his own life for a black man who has protected him. 3.When the duke and the king sell Jim, that shows how bad they are and how they have the ability to cruelly take advantage of every situation they are in.
