First, there is a frequent use of commas to create a slow pace. For example, Sanders writes about his father, “he climbs out, grinning dangerously, unsteady on this legs,” (733). The commas create breaks in between each two to four words, mirroring the father’s behaviour. It is easy to imagine young Sanders watching his drunk father taking one unbalanced step after the other, slowly, which is the effect that the commas offer here. The slow pace created illustrates Sanders’ small young voice, because he notices every detail like a child’s curiosity.
On the other hand, the main conflict in the film is Holmes and Watson against the superstition aspect of the case. Unlike in the novel, when Watson and Sir Henry dine at Merripit House with the Stapletons and Mrs. Mortimer, Mrs. Mortimer performs a ritual to call the superstitious spirit of Sir Charles, which a gigantic hound then pounces at the window. This shows that the director wanted to focus on superstition instead of logic. Also, to make the story more interesting, the director shows the dead body of Sir Charles as the exposition instead of Dr. Mortimer’s walking
Where was he right now? Jeremiah felt a lack of distance from his dad. He found out that Lois Ann and his father had a thing going on. On page 99 it says “He didn’t know that Lois Ann and his father had a thing going on, a heavy thing that would eventually break the family apart”. This shows that Jeremiah is not happy with his family and is very distant from them.
"It 's absolutely hopeless … but we 're plugging on... ' David Coke responded. Roald could tell that he was not like the Corporal when he responded with a little sign of hope. Roald the began to add onto the conversation by him responding " I have never been in action in my life." As Roald described on page twenty-six, paragraph 12, "David Coke stared at me as though he were seeing a ghost. After Roald explaining and David still being shaken up, David had begun to worry.
Especially the son of David Malter” (Potok 130). Reb Saunders wants to be more connected to his son’s closest friend and be apart of his life this is one of the connection throughout the story. Reuven while thinking about the situation with Danny says to himself “Poor Danny… your father with his bizarre silence-which I still couldn’t understand, no matter how often I thought about it-ia torturing your soul” (Potok 222). There are different connections between fathers
I think that Mr. Wiggins is the protagonist of this story. My first impression of him was that he wasn't very caring. When his aunt first proposed the idea of talking to Jefferson he was reluctant and said that it wasn't a part of his job. "What can I do? It's only a matter of weeks, a couple of months, maybe.
“Why didn’t you pay it before?” “ I was pretty sick about that. I waited too long to help another man”(6). This ending was not expected in the beginning, however there was a little of foreshadowing towards it. One example of it is when the teacher made a rude comment and no one stood up for him just a few tears from his crush. It is a periodic ending because we didn’t really know where he was going with the story, it wasn’t until the end that we fully understood that he was talking about standing up for
While his brother feels like he could never truly explain anything to the narrator. Although both characters were different they found an understanding by trying to feel what each other were feeling. Also by coping with their tough childhood and feelings together without directly communicating. Sonny wanted so desperately to please his brother, but couldn’t find a way to avoid Jazz but still get that feeling he craved. Sonny was clearly disappointed and embarrassed by his choice of actions and despite what anyone said, he realized the choice he made was poor and it was time to follow his dream.
The sight of his father crying, a man who according to the speaker has always been a stoic and emotionally strong character, consequently confuses the speaker into wondering how he must react to this situation. This is a change in the family hierarchy as the father figure can no longer provide emotional stability. The poet elucidates the theme of change in the following strophe, “old men standing up to shake my hand”. The old men respond to the tragic incident by shaking his hand, leading the speaker into adulthood and maturity. He has now suffered and hence is seen as a man.
