Different from Frank McCourt, Helen Keller had never married. Frank McCourt married three times. However, all these marriages were unpleasant. Frank McCourt has one daughter from the first marriage, and she is also interesting in writing like her father. On the other hand, Helen Keller chose to live alone, thus she never got married.
She only went to school for a few years because she had to take care of her family, so Mayella’s opportunity to learn the proper ways of a woman vanished. She never learned moral values like telling the truth, and was never treated with respect. When she was being called “ma’am” in court, she accused Atticus of making fun of her, but if she stayed in school she would have known that is how to properly address others. The flowers in Mayella’s garden symbolize how she needs beauty in her ugly life, and how caring is a positive thing, but sometimes no matter how hard you try hard, the things you care about will still die (like her relationship with Tom Robinson). Mayella grew up with an abusive father, so she never learns how actions can have consequences.
Abdulaziz Khan Prompt 1 The book “Forgive Me, Leonard Peacock” by Matthew Quick was quite the read. The main character, Leonard Peacock, seems a bit insane because already in the first chapter, he says, “Especially after I actually kill Asher Beal and off myself.” (Pg 5) Now that could be taken as a horrible joke, but he also has the P-83 handgun. He really means it. This whole book is a twenty-four hour setting, so this character develops rather quickly. Leo appears to be a teenager who just turned 18, and wants to kill this other guy, Asher.
(McCarthy,2006, 34). this quote reveals that the man resorted to violence using the gun, and the character known as a Roadrat is a bandit, who tried to kill the boy in order to get their supplies which hints that survival has taken a top priority for the most remaining people as they have resulted to this violent acts. The same thought process is applied to the other mentioned characters such as: cannibals and a man
The 1983 remake, is similar to the original 1932 film because Tony goes down with bullets flying everywhere, killing approximately twelve to fourteen of the intruders until finally one creeps up from behind him and shoots him with a shotgun, putting him to sleep forever. In the 1932 original Scarface movie, Tony Comante tries to run from the police but is brought down by their machine gun fire. Also, in the original film a stray bullet that was meant for Tony by the police accidently kills his sister (Cesca). Both films end when Tony is at long last killed. Clearly both movies would end when Tony's life does on the grounds that the film is about him .
It seemed that they were in charge of the children only for the day; it was hard to believe they were regularly responsible for anything other than themselves (16).” There is a very prominent lack of motherly feelings between Mrs. Das and her children. She acts more like an uniterested teenage sibling than a composed, mature mother. What is quite shocking is the way that Mrs. Das interacts with her daughter. She does not take her daughter's hand when they are walking in a place where a little girl could get lost, she seems more interested in herself than anyone else, “Mrs. Das said nothing to stop her.
Without coming clean” (Wiesenthal 53). It indicates that Karl really sought for redemption before his final breathe. Simon became his last chance to make everything back into right track and requested a peaceful death. Another instance demonstrated Karl’s repentance was that he remembered he shot the family to death when they jumping out from the window of the burning house. That image remained in his mind and tortured him mentally until his very last second of life.
This allows the population to drop by three, allowing for the triplets to be born. An onlooking painter watches this scene unfold and has a dramatic reaction, where now he wants the government to kill him, when he said earlier that he wanted his death to be from himself. This story can be very hard to summarize shortly, but all the details are crucial to understanding the main plot and themes. Based on my interpretation of the story, Kurt’s main theme (a reoccuring theme in many of his works) is that the government does not care about who you are, they see all of their people as pieces on a game board. In other words, you are seen just as a statistic to the government and nothing more.
The grandmother is a very selfish woman, the first thing she said to the Misfit is "You wouldn 't shoot a lady, would you?" (O 'Connor 1016) in order to save herself; trying to save the rest of the family doesn 't even cross her
Emily Brent was taking care of a young girl who got pregnant before marriage, which is against what Emily believes in so she kicked her out of her home, which then the young girl drowned herself. This is an awful situation, but Emily did not plan on having the girl kill herself, she didn't plan on it at all like Thomas did. Emily thought what the girl had done was wrong and she had the right to make her leave the home, it may be cruel but it doesn't deserve a punishment as severe as death. Thomas Rogers, on the other hand, does need that punishment because nothing has happened yet. ¨There was never a word against us.
