Later, Dahmer crushed the bones and scattered them across the yard (biography.com). These actions show that Dahmer may have had abandonment issues because he was left right after his graduation by his mother, father, and brother. Goodtherapy.org says that, “a child who was physically abandoned by a parent or caregiver may struggle with mood swings or anger throughout life.” Jeffrey Dahmer was left out a lot in his childhood so a lot of Dahmer’s built up rage was let out on Steven Hicks. Jeffrey wanted to be in control and brutally murdering Hicks gave him some of that control

It all started when she was the one who begged her father to let her go to school. There is where she met Sinita, whose family was killed by Trujillo because of their involvement in the revolution. Sinita told her how terrible Trujillo is. “ I lay awake most of that night, thinking about Sinita’s brother and her uncles and her father and this secret of Trujillo that nobody but Sinita seemed to know about. (Alvarez, 19) “Trujillo, says Bartlett, was a very vain man.
To begin, the author commences the novel with the chapter “Back Country Survival”, a title parallel to its contents. In this chapter, the author uses Jackson’s adolescence to explain his desire for justice, as he lost his family to the War of Independence. It emphasizes the part in which his mother “”left her feverish son in bed and set off for Charleston”(Curtis 9), where she of course, perished. This
This caused many conflicts between Ruth and her twelve children because they wanted to go against the restrictions given to them by society. I enjoy this conflict in the story because it shows the cold hard truth about what these kinds of families had to deal with instead of appropriating the story and pretending The Black Power movements didn’t happen. The story in Ruth’s perspective is set in Poland, where she was born in 1921, and later changes to Suffolk, Virginia, where her father worked as a rabbi. Ruth’s character was formed when she lived in the south in the 20’s and 30’s. Ruth also experienced hardships like her children because immigrants, especially Jews, were not very easily accepted.
According to Robert E. McGlone, it says “On the night of May 24, Brown, with four of his sons and two other men, rode to the homes of three pro-slavery settlers near Dutch Henry’s crossing on Pottawatomie of all pro-slavery men living on it .” According to Robert E. McGlone John Brown crossed over people that owned land who were pro-slavery and destroyed the land because they did not think that slavery was evil and wrong. This demonstrates how much John Brown hated slavery and what he would do to get rid of slavery. According to Jed Hotchkiss, it says “ On the 10th after appointing a committee with full power to fill all the executive, legislative, judicial and military officers named in the constitution adopted, this convention adjourned, sine die, and brown took his Kansas party to Ohio, where he disbanded them subject to call, but sending his Capt. John E.
Now Ellen’s views of others has changed, shown through her variation in racial views, as she becomes exposed to different types of people. Originally, while Ellen was still living in her own house with her absent father, she would often go visit her “colored” friend, Starletta. Although she would spend time with Starletta and her family and they treated her very well, she still viewed herself as better than them, because of her “superior” race. In fact, she sometimes pitied them, for example when she couldn 't understand how, “they do their business outside” (30). As Ellen changes who she lives with, such as when she stayed with her grandmother and later, her aunt, she met other “colored” people, like Mavis, that caused her to question if she was really better than them.
Pain, both physical and mental, affects every character in The Poisonwood Bible by Barbara Kingsolver. However, the biggest loss, which is that of the Price family’s youngest child, Ruth May’s, life also brings about some positive effects as well. Here, similarly to in Twelfth Night, a person is sacrificed for the greater good. Naturally, it may be more difficult to imagine the benefit of Ruth May’s sacrifice than to imagine the benefits of Viola’s, but if given adequate thought, it becomes clear that the death of Ruth May helps the other women in the Price family to realize Nathan Price’s destructive ways. Kingsolver first exposes Leah Price’s newfound argumentative and bold personality, and her opposition towards her father in the following exchange, “”She wasn’t baptized yet,” he said.
