Crooks was using Lennie’s gullibleness to tease and taunt him by saying barbarous things that he knew would provoke him. “S’pose George don’t come back no more. S’pose he took a power and just ain’t coming back. (Steinbeck 71)” This reflects on how Crooks used all of his bottled up anger on Lennie. Crooks knows that Lennie is the kind of person who could sit there and take all of his outbursts.
When Curley is first introduced to Lennie and George, “He glanced coldly at George and then at Lennie. His arms gradually bent at the elbows and his hands closed into fists. He stiffened and went into a slight crouch. His glance was at once calculating and pugnacious” (Steinbeck 25). Steinbeck develops this image because it portrays how Curley is intimidated by George and Lennie and, therefore, has menacing and bitter actions toward them without knowing them yet.
Additionally, while Capote never objects explicitly to Smith’s execution, his favorable conception of Smith manifests itself through the author’s commiserative characterization of Smith compared to his acerbic evaluation of Hickock. He says “‘Get the bubbles out of your blood. Nothing can go wrong.’ No Because the plan was Dick’s from the first footfall to final silence, flawlessly devised” (Capote 120). Though Capote rarely, if at all, explicitly disparages Hickock or laudates Perry, his tone and overall construction of the book subtly undermine the reader’s morals, subsequently leading them to sympathize for Perry. Through Capote’s exquisite diction and use of phrases such as “flawlessly devised,” he befittingly portrays Hickock’s lack of remorse .

Another example of Atticus showing sympathy towards people is a case with Bob Ewell. There was a scene when Bob Ewell made a barbaric attitude by spitting in Atticus’s face, yet Atticus didn’t mind it and just simply walked away. In this scene, Atticus demonstrated a lot strength of restraint and dignity by resisting to retribute for Bob’s action. “Caring people no matter how nasty they are” is the lesson, which he taught to his son. The “mockingbirds” in this book, are innocent people who have a pure heart.
He is able to think logically and though others believe him to be deaf and dumb, he uses this to his advantage. Chief states, “They don't bother not talking out loud about their hate secrets when I'm nearby because they think I'm deaf and dumb. Everybody thinks so. I'm cagey enough to fool them that much.” (Kesey 1). This
The Thing does a perfect job of showing how vulnerable people are when their backs are against the wall. The creature puts them in a position of self-doubt and helplessness. While The Thing has only a few moments of screen time in the film, it is still able have a huge presence because of its effect on the men in the movie. You can see how the monster is slowly eating away at their sanity, resulting in these men turning on one another. The Thing shows just how close people are to really losing themselves to their
There was a touch of parental contempt in it, even toward people he liked and there were men at New Haven who had hated his guts.” ch.1 Analysis: Nick is describing Tom, since he’s the narrator. Nick describes tom through his voice but yet you can get see all his personality through it. It also gives a small detail about nick like how close he pays attention to those around him and describes them in detail descriptions. 7. “everyone suspects himself of t least one of the cardinal virtues, and this is mine =; iam one of the few honest people I have ever known.” Analysis: this shows the bit of self-conceitedness of nick; everyone has kied before and cant be completely
Even if he did the right thing helping the children, it was still a corrupt deal all to help him with his affair.Tomason believes that“the most poisonous influence has not been Willie Stark's pragmatic political programs”(Tomason) but instead how he decides to make certain changes. Willie’s poisonous influence is that he decides to give favors to people he is sleeping with, even if it is for a good cause and that is why the affairs make him corrupt, because he is not making legitimate decisions based off of facts. In the end his affairs are his downfall as Sadie revealing the truth behind it led to Adam Stanton killing him
Whatever he says, The Joker would kill him. Leto does a marvelous job in portraying The Joker’s manipulate quality. Leto nonchalantly inches towards the client throughout the scene, making him uncomfortable, while also having a bored expression which matches the dialogue perfectly. He has moments where he's charming and almost socially-awkwardly innocent, then he flips a switch and his manipulation goes into
This all shows that Julian is a bully towards Jack Will and Auggie and that he’s not a good role model. Julian wouldn’t be someone to look up to because he does not feel remorse. An example is that Julian isn’t guilty for calling Auggie names or leaving the mean notes in his locker. Also, Julian thinks it’s actually funny when he makes fun of August and Jack Will. That shows that even though he knows that they feel terrible, Julian doesn’t apologize much less feel remorse.
He retains blurred memories of a mother’s hug as they look up at the sky, and remembers whispered assurances that he is the brightest star of them all. These memories give him hope, and he greets those who look at him with a friendly smile and a warm word. Yet he is too often met by the cruelty of an ignorant child or the suspicion of an adult who should truly know better. And so he adapts to his environment, his heart hardening against the slurs and the insults. He bloodies his knuckles on many a taunting boy and maintains a blankness on his face that reveals no weakness.
I 'm a pacifist, if you want to know the truth" (46). Without doubt, this exemplifies Holden’s ability to make observations. Holden doesn’t wash his face because the gore made him look tough and he likes it but he also proclaims that he’s a “pacifist”. Holden does one but says the opposite, this demonstrates Holden’s poor observation skills. Furthermore, in the novel, Holden says “I 'm the most terrific liar you ever saw in your life.
Additionally, Fitzgerald does the same in his book. He makes the characters speak very differently based on their social class to display the differences. “To them a man who talked after this fashion was either raving drunk or raving crazy” (Fitzgerald, 298). The lower class men are taunting the upper class man for speaking in an educated manner, whereas the intellectual is treated the inferiors as superiors making it ironic. This is satirical because Fitzgerald uses situational irony to convey the maturity of the social classes.
