Her ability to save Holden is recognized when he states metaphorically, “I don’t want you to get the idea she was a goddam icicle or something” (79). Going along with the motif of vision, Holden is unable to see that an icicle girl, who is still moving and not a frozen fish, is exactly what he needs. Nevertheless, his continued practice of never explaining himself is symbolized when he pretends he has a bullet in his guts and keeps his hand under his jacket “to keep the blood from dripping” (150). He wants to call Jane, but realizes he isn’t “much in the mood” for it (150). It’s important to note that Jane alone cannot save Holden or else she would actually been in the book.

In the novella, Of Mice and Men, by John Steinbeck, George’s decision to kill Lennie at the end of the novel was justified. George and Lennie were best friends, and have been since they were little.

On a side note, her dad never made an appearance in the book, but was represented as a “goofball” in the movie. Arnold Friend differed from the book in his representation of the film. In the book, Arnold Friend was much more threatening. He said many sexual things, that he was going to burn down their house if she did not come out and even threatened his family. In The movie he seemed little more than a sly, omniscient creep.
He knew that if Curley found George with Lennie, Curley would have thought that George in on the plan the entire time. This is why Curley says “You George! You stick with us so we don’t think you had nothin’ to do with this”(Steinbeck 98). Though some may say that George shouldn’t have killed Lennie only because he didn’t want Curley to do it, George knew and understood how Candy felt when Carlson killed his dog. Ince Candy’s dog was Candy’s best friend, George knew how much pain Candy went through when he had to witness his own dog getting killed by somebody other than himself.
Unfortunately, other may say different that silence has nothing to do with the husband torturing himself just to be able to please his wife and put up with her disrespectful behavior. For example, “she says another thing about him, and then another, and right after the third one I locked myself in the bathroom, because I couldn’t rage about this anymore” (154). It shows that in his mind fear, pride and the thought of feeling rejection from his wife cause him to live in torment. From the point of view of the author, Butler, he called the story a “Jealous Husband Returns in Form of Parrot”. Jealousy is always feeling suspicion, or fear of being displaced by a rival.

All these things, of which other women of her class would not even have been aware, tormented and insulted her'' (Maupassant 7).

Anney cries for him to stop, but does nothing to stop him from beating her daughter (Allison
Curley’s wife would not be a pleasant character in many ways. As a wife of manager’s son, she was described as a charming and flirty woman and treated others with scorn. However, her appearances later had shown actually she was just an immature, innocent and lonely woman who missed her chance to be a successful movie star in Hollywood and compelled to marry Curley. “If I’d went, I wouldn’t be livin’ like this, you bet” (Steinbeck 84) Accordingly, she felt unfair for her life and doesn’t want to get stuck on the ranch
To begin with, majority of the time, Nancy’s life is threatened due to her unhealthy relationship with Bill Sikes and so she tries her best to satisfy him. For example, Oliver ends up at the police station and the gang persuaded Nancy into going to the station to find out what had happened with Oliver. In order to do so, she had to change her appearance to look more like an upper class woman, and to not be recognized as a prostitute, because otherwise nobody would listen to her. As a result, Nancy plays the role of Oliver’s shocked sister, “ Oh, my brother! My poor, dear, sweet, innocent little brother!

As he grew older, Happy turned to immersing himself into a world of women and lies. Perhaps his womanizing ways provided a temporary fill for the void caused by the lack of love in his world, but it culminated to a point in which his mother, Linda, had to call him out on it. When Happy ditched dinner with his father and brother to be with women, Linda screamed, “Did you have to go to women tonight? You and your lousy rotten whores!”
Although she thinks of herself as a refined, conscientious woman who is a good judge of character, her family sees her as she really is: easily offended, manipulative, dishonest and at loath to admit fault. In the beginning of the story, she tries to scare her family into staying away from Florida by talking about The Misfit. Her idea doesn’t work because her son and daughter-in-law are already very familiar with her manipulative ways of persuasion and just ignore her. She takes offense when her grandchildren don’t act “respectful of their native states” (35) or when June Star insults Red Sammy’s wife. In other words, when the children act like children.
