Rudy knew the answer, but he wanted to see what Deutscher would do, not out of curiosity, but out of his own stubborn nature. Rudy was compensated with broken ribs. Another time when Rudy is stubborn is when he purposefully false started during the Hitler Youth Carnival. He false started twice and was disqualified. He then said, “‘I did it on purpose.’” But then Liesel asked,” ‘But why, Rudy?
“Only two. And they’ve gone.” When Ralph gives him the answer he is not telling the full truth, there were more than two boys that were killed. It is possible that Ralph did not mention the others because he was embarrassed of what they have become on the island. “Ralph nodded” Ralph is not answering the officer in words; he is just doing actions to show that he heard and understood the question. It is like Ralph is embarrassed to tell the officer how far they have drifted from the morals of a civilized community.
Although he had heard the stories told of Boo Radley and was terrified by them, it did not stop him from going ahead to accept the dare because he thought that it would determine how much courage he had. Also, he knew the rumours of how if one touched anything near Boo Radley 's house, one would die. However, Jem seemed
Many people think that it was hubris that caused his death but I just don't think that hubris is a logical explanation. He didn't know the truth about his life, his life and his actions were already predetermined, and he was just living life with curiosity. The first reason that hubris was not the reason Oedipus died was because he didn't know the truth of anything. He didn't know that he killed the king, let alone knew that Laius was his father. On page three Oedipus says “whoever he was that killed the king may readily wish to dispatch me with his murderous hand, so helping the dead king i help myself”(3).
When his wife was killed in an accident six months ago, he quit praying and being a priest in the Ministry. “We are all alone” (Shyamalan). Graham lost faith in God because god took his wife away after all Graham was giving back to the community by being a priest. He believes that they are alone and no one will help them make it out alive but themselves, one of his biggest issues. If Graham had a different mindset then he would not have done anything to protect his family when the alien invaded because all his faith and trust would be in god’s hands.
Parris is thinking about blaming it on witchcraft without even asking a doctor first but Proctor is trying to convince him otherwise. This shows that from the beginning John is trying to deny that there is witchcraft and keep the rumors from spreading. It shows that he really cares for the town and the people in it, if he did not care, he wouldn't try to protect it. Later on in Act One, John proves that he is questioning everything that is starting to happen in Salem. Parris starts to bring in wardens and officials to investigate the issues at hand.
This quote helps explain some of the crimes or scary acts, “People said he went out at night when the moon was down, and peeped in windows… people’s chickens and household pets were found mutilated” (Harper Lee 10). This quote proves that Scout and Jem are scared of Boo because of the gruesome acts and small crimes he is blamed for, but may not have even committed. In the story they also explain how Scout and Jem run past the house and do not walk past the house. This quote proves this, “Jem said he reckoned he wasn’t, he’d passed the Radley Place every school day of his life. ‘Always runnin’,’ I said (Harper Lee 16-17).
He also want to make sure that there’s no threat to his part of the prophecy to be fulfilled. And that is when Macbeth starts to get really evil and starts to plot against his friend Banquo, whom the whole time has been loyal to Macbeth even though he have had his doubts. This is when Macbeth forsure has become Banquo’s opposite, because even though Macbeth and Banquo may have had the same thoughts about the prophecies, Banquo didn’t act upon them as Macbeth did. And that decision is what makes and breaks the two characters and what makes the each others opposites or
He told him what would happen if he got hurt all of the sudden while he was out and he couldn't return. Lennie didn't understand Crooks was setting an example so Lennoe got defensive "Who hurt George?" Crooks saw danger coming so he said "I was just supposin'," In this you can tell since Lenni doesn't really talk to people and that he has problems in his head he can't see that Crooks was just setting an example. The symptoms that isolation can cause aren't good. They cause more problems then to just give the outcasted a chance to show that they're different, kind, that they also have dreams and life
He could've tried to explain to the men what really happened, or they could have went on the run again. He had also acted like he was law enforcement, and decided the punishment instead of the authorities. Which could have thrown Lennie in jail or a hospital, where he could get help. What makes it very bad is that Lennie and George were close, and George used that to make it easier for him to kill Lennie. Plus George promised Lennie’s Aunt Clara that he would take care of him.
Jay started to get paranoid about the situation, Made up a story with Jenn about what happened, and called the police. Except Jay’s story is wishy-washy because it isn’t real, everybody was always saying how much of a liar Jay was, and Jen’s story doesn’t match up at parts because Jay doesn’t have it together. The only way for him to be sure that Adnan was the one to blame, is to make up a story about how Adnan was angry at Hae. But how does Jay know all this information? Jay has to put himself in the story also, put himself in the position where he can’t get in too much trouble, but in a position where he knows everything.
In the Epilogue, Hammurabi states how the laws should be done (Document A). People followed the laws because they would be punished and also be disobeying their religion and Hammurabi, which brings bad luck, according to Hammurabi. Nevertheless, they didn’t know it was just Hammurabi, and only Hammurabi, who created the laws for everyone to
Personal Reactions: I liked how Lev’s character was developed throughout the story. Lev’s main focus in the beginning of the book is to escape from his “kidnappers” and be tithed like his parents wanted, but he is so focused on obeying his parents that he doesn’t notice the people who he thinks kidnapped him are trying to save him from being unwound. As the story progresses it’s obvious Lev no longer feels the same way, this is shown on page 226 when Shusterman states, “Once he landed in the safe-house network, he quickly made it known that he was not a guy to be trifled with. He didn’t tell them he was a tithe. Instead, he told them his parents signed the order to have him unwound after he was arrested for armed robbery”.
6 PG. 37) Also another main focus could be, just because something you been through was bad, doesn’t mean that effect would be negative. Meaning, Ishmael didn’t know what to expect once becoming a boy soldier. However he was given drugs at a young age, to let nothing bother him and stopping him from doing his duties. At the end, going through rehab, yes, he was miserable, didn’t want to recover, but just wanted to be a part of violence again, he was able to bounce back to the person he was before.
Hernandez made the decision to protect his family by fighting back. He stated “I never wanted to hurt anybody, but they put me in a situation and I had to protect my family” (Sharamm, 2016). There are some cases where individuals usually take matters into their own hands making the situation worst. To speak briefly on this matter when Mr. Zimmerman felt that Martin seemed up to no good the first thing he did was call the police, however at some point he decided to take matters into his own hands to confront the young man. Instead, he should have given the operator a description of what Martin looked like, so that way a patrol unit could have scope the scene.
