Over a walkie, Josh states, “As soon as the porters and Sherpas herd about Zopa’s arrest, they all gathered around Shek’s headquarters to hold a silent vigil. Shek tried to disperse them, but they wouldn 't budge.”(175) The Sherpas and porters really care about Zopa and they were willing to sacrifice their important jobs to save him.

Douglass compares the “money loving kidnappers” to “ferocious beast” trying to catch the easy prey. Once the slaves fought and achieved their freedom they had to make sure they didn’t run into the “beast” or kidnappers.

From the beginning Stanley has doubted Blanche, this is seen as he went through Blanche's things with Stella, questioning her belongings, “has she got this stuff out of teacher's pay?”(2.33). Stanley continues to impose his reality onto Blanche, which causes her more anxiety relying more and more on herself to create more of an illusion by creating an admirer for herself, saying that she ended it with Mitch because she does not deserve “deliberate cruelty”, and crating this alter ego for herself as being pure. While Stella is in the hospital, he and Blanche are left alone for the night as she continues bragging about her admiration coming from Sheep Hunt Leigh and how she just got a wire from him. Stanley catches her in her life, finally tearing apart Blanche's illusions. Although Stanley has been a threat to her through his suspicion and empowering masculinity over her, the last scene is where he finally takes final control over her, or symbolically where reality has a final triumph over her illusions.
It is clear that Dr. Frankenstein is in a regretful mindset when he states, “I suffered living torture.” Meaning that he knew it was never Justine who killed William. However, he would never be able to speak up because he is fearful that he will be perceived as mad by his family and by the public. This was just one of the consequences that Frankenstein has to face due to his creation. Frankenstein also recognizes the fact that it is ultimately his own fault that William has died and that Justine will be wrongly sentenced for his death. Thus the reason he states that the trial is a “wretched mockery of justice.” The death of both William and Justine then lie on Victor Frankenstein’s shoulders.

Huck is constantly seen in this battle of Man versus Self, in an internal battle between his upbringing of racism and slavery against his realization of humanity and friendship during the journey. Huck goes from seeing Jim as a piece of property, to seeing Jim as his best friend and he is willing to do anything to help him. Mark Twain clearly wanted Huck’s battle to stand as a symbol of the battle of racism in society, which can be seen throughout the novel. If a thirteen year old boy can come to the conclusion that racism is not proper, then society as a whole should be able to come to the same conclusion. Huck’s internal conflict will forever be a symbol of the conflict of society and racism.
