Thus, whilst slightly unconventional, Calpurnia has a distinct role in teaching the Finch children respect and responsibility. In conclusion, Atticus Finch and Calpurnia are contrasting characters with the same purpose in To Kill a Mockingbird. Atticus maintains a fair, wise character throughout the novel, in comparison to Calpurnia's cogent, blunt personality. What brings them together is how they set the correct example for and give life lessons to Jem and Scout. This is evident in multiple scenes throughout the novel, and helps develop the deeply-rooted respect in between them, showing that even those with contrasting ideas and characteristics are capable of making the same, positive effects on others.
As after the Hop Frog as came out of his intoxication “The latter seemed to have recovered, great measure, from his intoxication, and looking fixedly but quietly into the tyrants face, merely ejaculated” Hop frog look into the tyrants eyes as if he is his enemy and this is where his revenging plan to murder the king is plotted and this is also the point where the theme of revenge and empathy combines. Not only this, the structure of the passage also very serving in creating suspense in the story. The extract is a part of a rising action and it is written in the third person narrative which prevents the information to be hidden away from the mind of hop frog. Since the passage does not allow us to predict the Hop Frogs intensions thus it pulls the reader into the story creating the suspense. The use of the “--“creates a kind of artwork in the dialogues and therefore keeps the reader more involved in the text.
Intruder in the Dust challenges student’s reading comprehension with eloquent and intelligent writing. Intruder in the Dust puts scholar’s vocabulary to the test, with words like “insomnambulism.” Opposingly, Call of the Wild does not compare in a challenge of reading comprehension. The story is full to the brim of slang and profanity, especially in Francois’s, one of Buck’s many owners, dialogue, “Dat Buck, heem pool lak h—.” Intruder in the Dust contains significant dynamic characters, swayed by the kind acts of others. An example of this is Lucas’s grateful act of giving Miss Habersham a rose after she helped protect Lucas’s guiltlessness. Call of the Wild presented Buck’s static nature when he resorted to his wild and king-like attitude.
Additional evidence of Montresor’s madness Is given when the men refer to his house motto and coat of arms. Montresor’s house motto, “Nemo me impune lacessit”, means to punish with impunity, and it is immediately evident that he takes this motto literally. The fact that he plans to punish Fortunato without being caught reveals that he doesn’t plan to let Fortunato leave the vaults. Likewise, Montresor’s coat of arms seems quite appropriate relative to what is happening in the story: “A huge human foot d’or in a field azure; the foot crushes a serpent rampant whose fangs are imbedded in the heel” is analogous to Montresor, the foot, crushing Fortunato, the serpent (Poe 238). Taking his motto, a few voiceless words, as law is quite an insane idea, and characterizes Montresor as a madman.
Likewise, he demonstrates his discomfort about society’s acceptance of lobster’s pain and dismissal of their essence. However, in order to understand Wallace’s real intention in the essay, it is necessary to know his perspective towards modern society. By reading the Incarnation of Burned Children, it is possible to relate the society issues displayed, with considering the Lobster issues. The inability of lobsters, or the child, to communicate their pain of our careless acts is what disturbs Wallace. Therefore, he displays different examples to persuade the readers that society’s morality is corrupted and that the whole industry of boiling lobsters alive is accepted under a false premise that some animals are not deserving of protection, or are not ‘highly developed’ to feel pain.
Young Kwang Shin Ms. Aubrey McNary World Literature 17 September 2014 Existentialism in Kafka and Dinesen Existentialism has found its way into almost every conceivable medium of self-expression. since its inception. Literature us no exception; in fact, one could say the essence of the existentialist ethos, one of endurance when faced with the sheer absurdity of the cosmos, was never better captured than in the novels, poetry, and short stories written during the turn of the century. Yet just like the movement itself, existentialist literature embodied its philosophy with tremendous heterogeneity, the pivotal difference being one of tone. Franz Kafka 's seminal classic, 'The Metamorphosis ' is a penetrating, tragic study of Man 's imminent
There are numerous themes in this short story such as British imperialism and colonial resentment however the most prominent theme in this story is fear of humiliation and the effect peer- pressure has on an individual. The setting of Burma helps work with this theme as it provides an area for the plot to take place and develop. After marching miles to the destination of the elephant, a crowd had surrounded George Orwell and encourages Orwell to kill the elephant.

George Orwell is willing to sacrifice his role of doing the right thing and fulfilling the Burmese wishes in order to save himself from
Thieves are among the most despicable criminals. Their gifts are those of the reptile: cowardice, malice, envy, vigilant coldness, the fast vanishing and crawling in the shadows. The association is instinctive. In the mosaic, as well as in the Comedy, there are several scenes where the snake torments the damned. Then all together sorely wailing drew To the curst strand, that every man must pass Who fears not God.
In The Adventure of the Crooked Man, Doyle, himself, mentions a mongoose acquired from India and in A Sign of Four, he mentions a tribal from the Andaman Islands, Tonga, who is more a monster than man. Jennifer Fraser says, “Doyle’s portrayal of Tonga as primitive, animalistic and frightening is illustrative of popular conceptualizations of foreign figures during the nineteenth century, as the British populace frequently looked upon the colonies with apprehension and fear after the advent of colonial insurgency.” (Fraser 20). The Revolt of 1857 clearly plays a role in the scheme of the story. Fraser notes, “Whereas the British had previously viewed colonial natives as innately subordinate and complicit, violent behaviors displayed within the Mutiny suggested that the ‘primitive’ nature of Eastern culture was intimately linked with criminal behavior.” (20) The reason for portraying India and the natives in that manner was probably
In the same times, Atticus always persists his justice and stand firm by his justice no matter what others said or think. Atticus also presents an image of a model parent, he will always teaches his children patience and treat them as an adult.

Justice represents a really important characteristic, and in the book of Harper Lee, “To Kill a Mockingbird”, justice also stands for a significant point. Atticus has bravery to do the right things that are different from others, Jesus did the same, He shared the gospel which Pharisees and some Israelites hated.
