Paul seems to be afraid of Erik, which is reasonable given the things that he has put Paul through. For example, Paul is a constant punching bag for Erik, as he mocks him and feels superior towards him; Erik being the older sibling and thus has more freedom. The story also gives hints that Erik has something to do with Paul's lack of peripheral sight. However, despite that Paul is afraid of Erik, is doesn't mean that Paul isn't willing to indirectly go against him. He has seen many heinous things that Erik has done, like punching Tino and mocking Mike Costello, so he seems to be waiting for the right time to strike.
In Francis Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby, there are two characters by the names of Tom Buchanan and George Wilson. Throughout the book, these two particular characters seem to be very different from each other in nearly every way. However, it becomes clear as the story continues that they share some ideas and attitudes in common. Specifically, Tom and George were noteworthy in the way they felt about women, the methods by which they conveyed violence, and how they responded to their wives cheating on them. First of all, Tom Buchanan and George Wilson largely shared their attitudes toward women.
Although most antagonist share a lot of the same traits as the villain with being conniving, evil, and looking for a way to sabotage the protagonist, Hamlet’s Claudius and The Lion King’s Scar are significantly different. They of course aim for the same motives, but the way they go about situations and their overall personas are like night and day. To start off, they both have extremely different relationships with the protagonist. Claudius from the beginning wants to be on good terms with Hamlet, with reminding him that he’s now not only his uncle, but his stepfather. He’s eager to know what’s wrong with him and sometimes shows some concern.
Like Owl Eyes, Turner created excuses to explain his actions and attempt to remove blame from himself; however, for Owl Eyes no one else was harmed through his actions, but Emily now has to live with the events of one party. By using intoxication as a reason for his poor choices, Turner and Jordan both use the mentality of it takes two, but unlike Jordan, Turner did find another person in his same state leading to a rape. While Turner did not take the blame for the rape like Gatsby took the blame for Daisy’s hit and run, both Turner and Daisy were irresponsible in their actions involving a third party. Each person in the situations above expressed indiscretion in slightly different ways, but collectively they exemplify the irresponsibility of the upper class. Irresponsibility is a theme seen throughout everyday life, and Fitzgerald uses this to create scenes in the novel so the reader can make real life
I have always believed that jealousy is a strong feeling that can cause you to do bad things to others. However, that may not be true all the time, it just depends on how mature you are about the situation. For instance, the kids that lock Margot in the closet were lacking of maturity when they did that to Margot and Charlie’s co-workers in Flowers for Algernon were just not thinking clearly when they signed for the petition. Therefore, jealousy can be handled in a variety of ways and the way that jealousy was controlled in both of these stories were some
One is when Sherriff uses his personal experience to talk about the water tasting bad due to the disinfectant and that the tea tasted like onions- realism is also created here. Sherriff also uses personal experience by focusing on Hibberts fear when it was the build up to raid and how the men don’t like to talk about what is going on around them too much and try to distract themselves. The way we see Raleigh and Stanhope stunned in lonely grief shows though the men were supposed to be stereo typically “tough” around this era, they were still effected a
Single murders of prostitutes were found to be less sexual then that of serial killing of prostitutes. The serial killings were almost sure to be used for sexual gratification In short prostitution is already a dangerous profession what makes it even more scarey is the fact some men who are customers condone violence against women(Moses,2006). Seems the murder of prostitutes is quite common because noone has respect for them. This is a
Although they are not completely similar, there are some ideas that both these texts have in common. One aspect in particular would be the idea of corruption. It is interesting to see how both Gloucester and Gawain believe in the idea of dishonesty/wrongdoing. In Sir Gawain and the Green Knight we got to see how Gawain believed that women always had something up their sleeve whether it was by being deceitful or suspicious. Women were always blamed for the downfall of men.
His attitude towards woman comes off extremely repulsive and abusive. “Making a short deft movement,Tom Buchanan broke her nose with his open hand” (Fitzgerald 37). This quote shows it all about Tom, it shows how he chooses to insert dominance and how he handles situations that could be avoided for the majority of the time. Tom thinks that Adultery is alright as long as he comes back to daisy whats the issue with it? "And what 's more, I love Daisy too.
The characters in Ender’s Game, most notably Ender, Valentine and Peter, represent different aspects of humans. Ender represents compassion. Ender has a very violent side to himself that the adults in the book bring like to bring out and abuse. Ender recognizes that they do that and hates that side of himself. He tries his best to stay away from hurting people and while talking to his sister Valentine he says, “In the moment when I truly understand my enemy, understand him well enough to defeat him, then in that very moment I also love him (238)”.
