Chris displayed his arrogance all throughout his journey. His arrogance from the start was that he didn’t rely on Human materials. Humankind may not make things perfect every time but they make things because they need them. So Chris was being very arrogant by not using the things created just for his purpose by thinking he could do everything on his own and in the end that was what got him killed. But by the same standard anyone can understand Chris’s thinking.
As the story progresses, Gregor becomes aware of his waning humanity because of his lack of interaction with the other members of the family. His degradation as a human, however, began before his physical transformation, due to his ceaseless devotion to work. Informing the audience of the Samsa family’s backstory, at one point the narrator states that “They had been good times and they had never come again, at least not with the same splendour, even though Gregor had later earned so much that he was in a position to bear the costs of the whole family, and did bear them. They had even got used to it, both Gregor and the family, they took the money with gratitude and he was glad to provide it, although there was no longer much warm affection given in return” (Samsa 15). The narrator’s statement encapsulates the tragic path that Gregor took.
Frost makes extensive use of using idioms. “Day was all but done,” is an idiom showing us that he was never done working after a day, because a day is never just done. An idiom is used when the boy calls it a day, meaning he’s done working for the day. The title “Out-Out-” shows the boys wants out of misery from working so hard. It shows the readers that he wants out immediately.
Bob Ewell has put Maycomb and its people to shame. Everything he does, like having a job and then being too lazy to do it, resulting in him losing his job affects the family greatly. He doesn't care what people think because he lives in a dump and he basically expects everyone to pay for his bills by getting unemployment funds. Scout says, “ Mr. Ewell is the first person ever to lose a job from the WPA because of being lazy.” So after losing his job because of being lazy he gets money from other people, probably taxes, which isn't fair that other people pay the bills for him and his family. Over not paying bills he put the town through the court case which cost money and so the town lost money there again.
Utopia...Yeah Right Lois Lowry's, The Giver uses a dystopian society as a metaphor to show how he lives without pain and lacks knowledge of other places in order to give the reader a warning that the society will never be perfect. The difference between a utopian and a dystopian is often used for the difference of how a society wants it to be, and how it actually is. The Giver is dystopian because they get their memories erased, they are all equal, and they get assigned jobs when they are 12. In The Giver, they erase their memories of anything like snow, hills, and color. The Giver explains the color red to Jonas, stating, “you’re beginning to see the color red” (94).
The protagonist Holden Caulfield is liberated from his warped personality and finally begins to realize his aversion of the grown-up life that change is inevitable and always accompanied by a sense of loss. Not accepting the changes in the surroundings and his actions makes him immature and not a trusted narrator. Avoiding issues by not facing them in the first place makes him being followed by disappointment constantly. For instance, in the beginning of the book Caulfield mentions his own opinion on leaving places and we know that when he was thirteen years old his little brother died. Instead of repairing the wounds and flesh he moves on like nothing happened the entire book until we find him in the psychiatric hospital as an entire breakdown.
While Unoka was seen by everyone as low because not only did he not have any titles he couldn’t properly take care of his family. This image of Unoka that Okonkwo had all his life lead him to try to build his life to not be like Unoka. “His whole life was dominated by fear, the fear of failure and weakness” for “[resembling] his father” (13). Okonkwo’s identity for himself was that he was to be everything his father wasn’t where on the inside he was vulnerable and controlled by the fear of being Unoka and inversely being himself. The new identity that he built was shown to the village as a rich powerful warrior with many titles.
There is no clue provided whatsoever for the cause. Part I is about how his family finds out about his new form and their reaction to it. Part II tells about how is family gets used to his presence and Gregor’s way of life after a few months after his transformation. Part III is mainly about how his family gets united to get rid of him forgetting that he is a part of their family. Gregor is just an ordinary guy who hates his job but is forced to continue so as to feed his family.
Rips’ wife was “continually dinning in his ears about his idleness, his carelessness, and the ruin he was bringing on his family” (473). I interpret his carelessness as he gave up on his own property, but he can still find peace in helping others. I think we could say he was nonconforming and he did what he believed is right. He came to the conclusion that there is no use in maintaining his farm so he would help others; that way he can still be helping society and making himself feel better. He was not like anyone else; most people don’t help others instead of doing their own chores.
This is shown to us in the book when Elie’s father dies and it says, “Suddenly, the evidence overwhelmed me: there was no longer any reason to live, any reason to fight.” Elie’s hope quickly changed into depression. Being with him all of the way, Elie’s father was the most important thing to him while he was in the camps. After his father’s death, Elie saw the rest of life as useless, as stated in the book, “Since my father’s death, nothing mattered to me
Before the attack on his home is confirmed, Macbeth tells his servant, “As honor, love, obedience, troops of friends, / I must not look to have, but in their stead / Curses, not loud but deep, mouth-honor, breath” (5.3.25-27). After killing too many people, Macbeth finds no purpose in honor or having love like a king normally has because he has survived so long without them, so by now he has adapted to these emptinesses. He has come to the conclusion that friends are no longer necessary because they just create more issues and more curses. They give him a false hope of honor, but the honor will not help him now. Macbeth yearns for the honor which he abandons once he decides to follow Lady Macbeth’s advice.
During the final days of Eliezer’s father’s death, Elie’s father completely depends on Elie to bring him food, water, and keep him protected. When Eliezer discovers that his father has been taken away, he thinks to himself, “I did not weep, and it pained me that I could not weep. But I was out of tears. And deep inside me, if I could have searched the recesses of my feeble conscience, I might have found something like: Free at last!...” (Wiesel, 112) When Elie searches through his “feeble conscience”, or weak conscience, his mind is incapable of feeling anything towards his father. His mind is weak from the constant strain and stress of the Holocaust.
Originally he only did it once a week on Friday. After a long week at work it must have relieved his stress, which wouldn’t make it that unreasonable to do. However, after everyone knows what Troy did to Rose, they start to lose the respect that they once had for him. They stop visiting him and even Rose and Cory keep avoiding him. (Quote) With nobody around, Troy cannot be the center of everything, he cannot move the conversation his way.
Troy becomes a lonely, unloved man from his original position as the middle of attention in his family and social world. Troy often tries to escape his life, and tries to involve life and challenge death because of how genuinely he trusts in himself. Troy starts by challenging his workers about their prejudiced practices, he brags to his best friend Bono that he is fearless of death and he keeps a secret that he thinks he is able to get away with about his issue with Alberta. Shown through the three Fridays interspersed in Fences, Troy appears into an isolated and loveless life when his anger and his secrets get the best of him. This causes his loved ones to lose their admiration for him and to change their life so that he was not in their presence anymore.
