In Doubt Sister James is the character who is full of the most doubt out of everyone in the play; Sister James doubts herself, Sister Aloysius, and Father Flynn all in a very short time span. At the beginning of the play when Sister James is having a conversation with Sister Aloysius it is clear that a single word from Sister Aloysius could completely shatter Sister James’ confidence and make her doubt her abilities. Sister James takes the advice of Sister Aloysius but after she does she says to Sister Aloysius in another conversation “I feel. Wrong. And about this other matter, I don’t have any evidence.
Eliezer and Juliek have been whipped many times because they haven’t been doing what they’re supposed to be doing, they haven’t been doing their work. In the end, dialogue is helpful in stories because without dialogue, stories would be boring and would have no interest in it. Therefore, dialogue
Connie is defenseless to Arnold Friend’s manipulations mainly because she has no visible identity of her own. Arnold Friend was there to take Connie away; away from her childhood and home, which never quite felt like home until her fantasy world deteriorated and reality set it. The next moment is pivotal, this is when Connie forgets her hedonism and becomes something of much more substance. Before Connie studies Arnold Friend’s abnormal personality and erratic behavior she is fascinated by him and even worries that she is ill prepared for this
"Oh, I wouldn 't do that," she said, surprised.”(19) Mildred’s inability to consider her unhappiness or believe that there could be something wrong with her life ultimately lead to her stagnancy as a character, remaining unhappy until the end: “Leaning into the wall as if all of the hunger of looking would find the secret of her sleepless unease there. Mildred, leaning anxiously, nervously, as if to plunge, drop, fall into that swarming immensity of colour to drown in its bright happiness. The first bomb struck.”(Bradbury
Relieved because I felt no connection with that kind of happiness; I didn’t deserve it and thus I shouldn’t want it.” (Page 71) Grealy had been belittled for so long on a daily basis that she believed she was nothing more than this ugly monster that doesn’t deserve love or friendship. She considered it a weakness. After reading a verse from a book called “The Prophet” she shuts it and states, “I wanted nothing to do with the world of love; I thought wanting love was a weakness to be overcome. And besides, I thought to myself, the world of
Emily has tried the simple common tasks of solutions. She has tried to talk to her fiancée and friends when she gets jealous, but this only can happen over-text and she said many find that it’s too late at that point to help at all. She has tried to talk to the people who cause these emotions or those who make it worse. She said that when she does it makes her feel poorly because it’s her issue and “shouldn’t have to deal with it.” Emily has considered the on-campus counseling that is provided but she states she keeps making excuses for her not to do it. These excuses are her having no time, no money, or feeling her issues aren’t serious enough to go to a professional.
Instead, Sylvia stays silent when asked, not wanting Miss Moore to know she has learned something. Sylvia will never admit it; she’s too stubborn. Not only does Sylvia not want to admit she learned a lesson, she doesn’t want her friends admitting it as well. As Sugar starts answering Miss Moore’s question, Sylvia “[stands] on her foot so she don’t continue” (Bambara 5). Sylvia does not want Miss Moore to believe she is right and her teachings are effective.
Carver 's alcoholics lack even the eloquence of O 'Neill 's fog people. They are often crude and utterly lacking in the powers of introspection. They cannot express what they mean but they want to tell stories. Very often they quite literally have nothing to do: they are out of work or about to be fired. They know they once had hopes and ideas about the kind of people they should be and how they should live their lives (having a job, wife, and maybe children), but they do not know how to connect the everyday
Everyone has been there –to the point where you are so stressed out that you can barely think; where you are worried about how you fared on an exam; where you are contemplating whether your friends are sincere with you or not; where you are trying to forget a recent quarrel with someone dear to you; where you are simply too taxed to do anything productive. At this point in time, many will do something else to help take their mind off their current predicaments and depressions in life by escaping the problems brought by this reality they are living in. For some, that something is reading. For others, it is drinking. Now, in our current generation, this list has expanded to include another method of finite escape, video games.
“It was always hard for me to look on others” (3). All he feels he can do is run away from his problems. Crispin views himself as a week unimportant person which makes it hard for him to chance.

Adah is a cynical person who never fully experiences life. Adah speaks little to nothing in the beginning of the novel because “When you do not speak, other people presume you to be deaf or feeble-minded and promptly make a show of their own limitations.” (Page 34) As Adah grows older, however, she loses her negative viewpoints she had when she was younger. After overcoming her health issues, she was born a new person. Her voice in the novel is used to desensitize us--then surprise us. Leaving us thinking about our easy lives, which we have made a place we rid of issues.
In the short story "The Lottery" The style is described in the first sentence, "The morning of June 27th was clear and sonny, with the fresh warmth of a full day; the flowers were blossoming profusely and the grass was richly green", and that kind of style is distinctive style. In this story there is a lot of verbal irony, also know as sarcasm. The sarcasm usually comes from Mrs. Summers because that’s how she gets her point a cross, but not in a bad way. The tone in the story I would say would be very consistent when I comes to the attitudes. I feel the the authors tone in the story stayed the same, and only changed when people had their disagreements.
He overly relies on God to solve every problem he encounters, not believing himself to be able to solve them. His lack of drive and overdependence on God causes problems to arise again and again. The Israelites’ disobedience of God’s commands and their constant complaints about their conditions in their wilderness are such examples of Moses’s incompetence when it comes to exerting control over the Israelites. Although Moses is the one that leads them out of Egypt, he does not gain the hearts of the

She, at this point, is being further drawn into he own alternate fantasy which by the end of the text is the only way of means that she is fully capable of dealing with her personal obstacles and healing herself of her
Due to this, he failed to see the consequences of his decisions, which ended up being his ruin.

After this argument, Daisy realize that she does love Tom and wishes to stay with him.
