Just like Ray Bradbury explains, books are important because they emphasize the mistakes and “pores” in society. This is exactly what Fahrenheit 451 does. The characters are like a mirror image of people in society today. What kind of characters are people, cowardice or brave, motionless or
I believe that Pericles is alluding to the fact that the country’s men, though preoccupied with their personal lives, were still fair judges in public matters (Funeral Oration of Pericles). This is a good representation of the big picture of the judicial system. Seeing as how men from all walks of life took time out of their lives to serve on juries at all trials. However, there was not very much quality control during the trials. Jurors were limited to their own knowledge of the law and were often persuaded by either the defendant or plaintiff.
In the novel of “Of Mice and Men” power and friendship is the very bases of the story. There are many people with power in the book but I specifically was interested in Curley’s power. Curley is the son of the Ranch’s boss and he is very spoiled. He does not listen to rules and usually gets away with any trouble he makes or gets into. Therefore, he is powerful for the very reason that he is “untouchable.” He does not use the power for kindness but uses it to show who is best and in a bullying matter.
Being the underdog for most his life, Hal serves as a great protagonist, for a story that portrays the the meek as the most courageous.

In Geoffrey Chaucer 's "The Canterbury Tales", it portrays the characters from every level of feudal society and reveals the social roles from each character played throughout the chapters. In his masterpiece, Chaucer also uses satire to speak about human morality through the medieval era when the Catholic Church was governed by England. Chaucer starts his examination right on time with three religious characters-first being the monk. Monks should experience their lives in destitution, virtue, and submission something that this specific monk neglected to do. He enjoyed owning numerous stallions and dressing pleasantly which contaminated his motivation of destitution.
"if curiosity killed the cat it was satisfaction what brought it back." as well said, Eugene O 'Neill. Steinbeck phrases that Ignorance is man’s most powerful weapon for wealthy people, meanwhile for lower class people, ignorance is destruction. The novella is placed in the time of colonialism, a time period in which highlights the major struggles of The Pearl, that came along the way, it became like an unstoppable barrier with Kino.

Comparing and contrasting characters and the movies itself is difficult. Private Trip in Glory himself is very non open and broken. Acting tough and thinking he's better then everyone in the 54th Massachusetts. In the beginning of the movie his emotions are very powerful, him bullying others and making fun of Thomas for growing up as a freeman and living with white people like Colonel Robert and Major Cobot. He is the only one that speaks his mind about slavery and the war.
He is a well-founded member in the dockworkers’ community. He is also poor and is trying to earn a living doing menial labor, whereas the proletarian hero is usually regarded as an unemployed hobo or tramp. Like an antihero, Malloy is disagreeable and aggressive. However, he overcomes his dishonesty, which is seen when he tells both Edie Doyle and Father Barry about his involvement in Joey Doyle’s death. Furthermore, he has nothing to gain by telling either of them the truth; in fact, he only stands to lose his budding romance with Edie.
In The Ox-Bow Incident, Walter Van Tilburg Clark uses the character Gerald Tetley to show that neither masculinity nor femininity is the answer to every problem. When speaking to Croft, Gerald Tetley lays out his thoughts about men compared to women: Men are worse. They're not so sly about their murder, but they don't have to be; they're stronger; they already have the upper hand of half the race, or so they think so. They're bullies instead of sneaks, and that's worse. And they're just as careful to keep up their cheap male virtues, their strength, their courage, their good fellowship, to keep the packfrom jumping them, as the women are to keep up their modesty and their hominess.
Atticus seemed to have had a lot of power because he was known as a great lawyer but even he knows there was no way of him winning the case. “Atticus said, “I just wanted to make sure, Judge,” and the judge smiled”(Lee 224). In the courtroom Atticus’s points and the way he was cross-examining created an illusion that made him seem as if he was going to win. This was also noticed by the judge as she smiled at him. The citizens with the color of white skin mind’s were corrupted.
