William Golding, having served in World War II, knew about the egregious disasters that could arise from brainwashing, detrimental influences. Hence, in order to ensure history would not repeat itself, Golding emphasized the slippery-slope nature of sinister INFLUENCEs on society in his novel, Lord of the Flies, namely through character development. Initially in the PLOT, everyone willingly agrees to “have rules and obey them” claiming that they have “got to do the right things” (42). However, they ultimately end up clashing between and changing their opinions on the values they advocate for in the beginning, like peace, and the opposites of those values, such as savagery.
Getting rid of everything unpleasant instead of learning to put up with it” (238). Dealing with the unpleasantries of life is something people should deal with. Things like anger, murder, and mosquitos are necessary to keep the balance of the world in order. Get rid of them and things might seem better, but there will always be cracks. One difference between Brave New World and Equilibrium is their stance on solitude.
This is where Hitchcock really brought in the psychological thriller aspect; unexpected events and messing with the minds of the audience. We begin the film knowing that Scottie was suffering from acrophobia, and he is hopeful and ambitious to learn to get it under control. He also is a good friend because he takes a case from Gavin after retiring from detective work. All nobel and strong traits for a protagonist, but there was some interesting character development that worked in the opposite way one would expect. Scottie was put through a lot; manipulation, and witnessed two deaths, one being a loved one.
The other theme Good vs. Evil is shown with Atticus and his thoughts about good and evil creatures. He teaches these lessons to Jem and Scout to show them that it is possible to live through the racism in Maycomb. In the movie, Atticus trying to protect his children from the evil isn 't made clear. For example, when Atticus got spit on by Bob Ewell in the movie he makes a big deal about it.
The Ballad of Atticus Finch In to Kill a Mockingbird, Harper Lee presents the idea that wisdom is demonstrated by having already experienced what has happened or what is about to happen. Social justice requires wisdom because one's self has to know what they are dealing with and how to handle it. The character of Atticus Finch displays wisdom by not picking sides because of color on Tom’s case, by understanding the money problem that the Cunnigham’s had and by understanding his physical limitations when Jem and Scout want to play Atticus is wise because he knows it is unfair to be racist in this era and definitely with the job that he has.

She then proceeds to plot against her father, to make him weak so that he does not have the protection to overtake or harm her. “This man had good counsel….And hold out lives in mercy. Oswald, I say!”(1.4.328-333) “Safer than trust too far….When I have showed him th’ unfitness”(1.4.335-339) Because of their different morals and backgrounds, Goneril and Ginny acted in the way that they were raised to behave under the rules of their father. Goneril acted in a destructive
Steinbeck’s purpose was to demonstrate how doubles are possible in the same person, and if people are opposite, they will attract and pass on their good or evil qualities with each other. Also, the author suggests that good cannot exist without evil because there would be no spectrum of one’s personality. Caleb Trask is a risky guy, but through John Steinbeck’s use of Genesis, positive connotations, and diction surrounding his name, readers already have an image of him being a weak, pure, and too contrasting to other
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.

Rule breaking, leads to rulemaking. But to break an established rule in any artform hinges on the author's intent; to do it out of ignorance or laziness just results in sloppy work. To effectively break the rules, it’s necessary to learn them, acknowledge them, and then go on without them. John Huston’s The Maltese Falcon (1941) is the perfect example of this.
