All Mrs.Hutchinson was doing was trying to protect her husband from getting the “black dot”. Not only was she trying to protect her husband but she was trying to speak her mind about the lottery as well. Although Mrs.Hutchinson says that it is unfair, the other characters that were not picked thought differently. The character, Joe Summers,
His mother provided a needed nurturing feature that he would need to give him the boost to return to the aspects of society. Krebs struggled to find ways to regain his stature in society and his mother felt it was her duty to help him along the way even if he was mean to her without understanding why he was doing such. Krebs would even tell his mother he did not love her, even though he did not mean it (Hemingway 170). His mother would be there to support her son, even after the hurtful comments that Krebs made towards her. It is hurtful in any form to see your children go through any pain and she would make sure that all could be done to get Harold back into the world.
This incident shows the reader that she wants to be taken seriously by her colleagues. It also displays that Hilly deeply treasures her reputation because of her reaction towards the situation. On the other hand, Aunt Alexandra has also shown the reader signs that she values her family’s reputation. In chapter 23 of To Kill a Mockingbird, Aunt Alexandra did not allow Scout to play with Walter Cunningham because of his poor background. She said, “Because-he-is-trash, that’s why you can’t play with him.
Adultery was such a terrible sin to be committed in mid-seventeenth century, especially within the puritan community. Hester wanted to protect the father of her child because she knew that if everyone found out Dimmesdale was the other part taker in this crime then, they both would have been killed but Dimmesdale, being the minister, helped and saved her by letting her off easy, thus wearing the scarlet as her punishment. When she first realizes what the letter is capable of, she does not like it and is ashamed for herself. The townspeople would treat her very differently as well as talk rudely about her. In chapter twenty one, the narrator states, “Her face, so long familiar to the townspeople, showed the marble quietude which they were accustomed to behold there.
Which shows that the actions taken place do not describe him as a person. He was just lead the wrong way and Mrs. Jones took her time to address it. The fact that Mrs. Jones addressed roger tells about her character as well. Because Mrs. Jones took her time to address the boy, feed the boy, and give the boy money is shows that she does not judge people. In the reading of quote 5 she says “I have done things, too, which I would not tell you, son-neither tell God, if he didn’t already know.” she admits to doing wrong in her which shows she isn’t ashamed of him.
It is clear that the woman is afraid of her son and the power he has. It is not said who is the receiver of the letter either, but we can assume that he was somewhat close to the mother and her son, because he had asked her about her son before in a letter. She was surprised to receive a letter from him, but she also expresses her relief to tell somebody about her worries. She writes in the letter that her son was good in school and that is something that the consignee of the letter should already know, if he knew her son at all. So from this we could guess that he is someone from their past.
That was a big thrill for me; it made me feel important.” In his mind, he assumes the teacher likes him because she would make him clean up, but in reality she was just making the dark skinned boy clean up so he would be useful. The blackboard is closely associated to “challenges” not everyone likes to clean up, the teacher as well, wasn’t a huge fan of it. Like when you’re being challenged or told to do something hard, you wouldn’t want to do it. That’s why the teacher makes the Richard clean the board instead of her. (4).
Another theme I think would go outstanding with the book and the poem is “The poor can be grumpy, but on the inside, they care about people.” I made this quote up because in the poem it 's describing how the poor child only wanted life to be simple and just make sure gods with him all the way. His wants were simple, and simple his creed, to trust God fully: it served his need. In my school, a kid who is very mean and no one likes him, but I talked to him the other day and he told me what was wrong with his mom and how he takes care of her, I think people just need to stop bullying people so they will not bully you back. This theme would go great with the book because it 's saying how on the inside they are nice, well, the Greasers are really nice to be honest probably nicer than the Socs. “I couldn 't use this, I said, dropping the pop bottle.
She believes that social classes was simply the reason for the revolution in the beginning. We also see a difference in social classes when poor children were asked to fight in the war and promised a better life if they did. Shahab, one of Marjane’s cousins says,”They came from the poor areas, you can tell… first they convince them that the afterlife is even better than Disneyland, then they put them in a trance with all their songs.” (Satrapi 101). They lied to and manipulated poor kids who had less education than a middle or upper class kid and used them as soldiers for the war. Marjane was no longer confused and very aware of the social classes in Iran.
He goes on about how he is different when it comes to discipline compared to the iron fist of Sister Aloysius. He seems almost too focused on coming up with excuses for why he is abnormally close with Donald. His actions make him seem very skeptical about his intentions and actions in regards to Donald Muller. Father Flynn then goes and talks to Sister James separately to talk with her about the accusations. By talking to Sister James alone, Father Flynn not only broke the rules but also seems suspicious.
The Auld family was described in the next chapter. At first she was very kind to Douglass which threw him for a loop because normally he would’ve been punished for something as simple as looking her in the eye. However, not long after she too became cruel and completely changed as a person according to Douglass. Before turning cruel Mrs. Auld would teach Douglass some words as well as the alphabet. Nevertheless, this too was brought to a halt when Hugh Auld finds out.
When my grandmother called me, I’d say, ‘Yes ma’am.’ I wanted to say, ‘Why do you hit me? Am I really a bad child? Why do you treat me like I’m not part of your family?’” As I’m reading his story he has a very remarkable story in my opinion, and he’s a perfect reason we need to change this system. He wanted to tell the cops or his social worker but he was afraid to because he would be hit by his foster grandma. For some children this may not even work but it is definitely worth a shot to help these kids like Deshon.
He also thought she was a good wife because she also gave him a child that he could pass all of his possessions to. However, after he finds out that his wife was cheating on him his attitude turns to be a horrible attitude towards her because she committed this crime and she could have ignored Eratosthenes and denied his ways, but she did not do that.
The coming of age is related to the personal development of the character which gives him the ability to better understand the problem. In stories and movies, this stage involves the moral development of character which provides him knowledge and help him to overcome his misconceptions and challenges. As in the movie, the DG’s wife does not like her maid Maria in the beginning and she always criticise her being Mexican. But as the movie continued, she realised that it was not her maid, she 's just being angry without any reasons. Furthermore, she realised the actual problem was insecurity and distrust which cause the development of her character and she hugged her at the last.
Atticus stands up for what he believes in in the book To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee, even if his opinion is generally disagreed with; which is reflected greatly in his children as they learn to become part of society.
