People with disabilities are no less than regular people and they deserve the same love and respect. Brother obviously does not understand this because he is constantly acting like he is bettering Doodle’s life when his intent is his own personal gain. Brother feels the guilt of teaching Doodle to walk for his own personal gain when he reflects, “They did not know that I did it for myself, that pride, whose slave I was, spoke to me louder than all their voices, and that Doodle walked only because I was ashamed of having a crippled brother.” Brother finally learns what karma can do to a person when Doodle dies. The scene of Doodle’s death is depicted as “bleeding from the mouth, and his neck, and the front of his shirt were stained a brilliant red.” The traumatic experience of Brother seeing Doodle in such a state was when he learned the lesson of “What goes around comes around.” Questions and Answers: What do you think would have happened if Brother actually followed through with killing Doodle? I think Brother would live with the constant guilt of taking Doodle’s life.
This disability prevented Doodle from walking or standing which meant that most of the time, Doodle's brother was required to carry Doodle anywhere he needed or wanted to go. Without a doubt, this aggravated Doodle's brother, greatly. In his mind, and with his gigantic ego, Doodle's brother was too good to carry his physically challenged brother anywhere, especially in public where they could be seen by others, so guess what Doodle's brother did to get out of helping Doodle? He actually forced Doodle to walk, which was detrimental to Doodle, both physically and mentally. Considering the overwhelming strain this action forced upon Doodle's frail, fragile heart, it easily could have been too much for it to take.
People are often greedy and careless. When Slim saw that George and Lennie traveled around together, he was surprised. “I never seen one guy take so much trouble for another guy...Maybe ever’body in the whole damn world is scared of each other” (Steinbeck,35). This powerful quote explains that human kindness that is so often thought of humanity, is rare. George is looking after Lennie as if they were brothers, which surprises many.
But out of fear that he would be like his father, he started becoming very irresponsible and did things without thinking. He was feared by many and loved by many as well which made him become a very respected member in his tribe. Eventually he could not stand watching his village change its morals and become modernized so he took his own life. His eagerness to stay original and fear of change become his own demise. If it were not for Umuofia 's geography, I believe that this story
Bob ewell based on evidence was abused and had a drunk father all the time. Due to his father's abuse, he had taken that trait from his father. The people of Maycomb think that bob does what he does for the joy of it but not because he was born into it. Due to this the people do not treat bob with respect like everyone else but they treat him negligently. So then the cycle continues he was born to treat people racistly and badly like the way he was treated.
The conclusion I have reached about Chris is that he was a distant and ill-prepared person who had a very strong will. Chris seemed to become someone who was untrusting of others. I think this was caused by his parents. Chris never really saw eye to eye with his parents especially his father and after Chris learned of his father’s past double life his relationship with his parents had begun to deteriorate. A quote from his mother said “‘He seemed mad at us more often, and he became more withdrawn-no, that’s not the right word.
This ideas roots itself in disenfranchisement and how people judge other people just on how much success they have had. When Gatsby was young he felt like he did not fit with the social class that he was raised in. He wanted to get out of it because he believed that was the only way to be achieve his determined destiny. As he was growing up Gatsby, “was a son of God-a phrase which, if it means anything, means just that-and he must be about His Father’s Business, the service of a vast, vulgar and meretricious beauty” (Fitzgerald 104). Gatsby believed that he was meant to get out of his current circumstance because it was his destiny.
Sherman Alexie discusses many things in his poem, “Crazy Horse Boulevard” such as how many best friends his brother has had and lost, his meaning of the loneliest number, and how much love he has for his brother. He also discusses the greatest human beings he knows that have ever lived, ironies, and his many drafts. What draws me to “Crazy Horse Boulevard” is how different it is from other poems that I have read in the past. For example, the language in this poem is unique because it does not have any form of rhyme and it is divided into six different sections; however, it is considered a single poem that is free verse. While looking over his poem for the second time I read something that I had not noticed before.
In the very last line, the speaker says, “What more could I, a young man, want”(21), this represents the speaker’s youth and how his father should be there to mentor. The sarcasm in the text also creates a upsetting tome where the speaker does not deserve a lonely, and nostalgic life. But, the speaker lives through him and his father’s memories that cause him to forever be alone. In conclusion, Li-Young Lee uses many literary techniques in his poem, Eating Alone. The techniques, such as, imagery and tone, help create the theme of memory and loneliness throughout the poem.
He despised the British Empire. The patriots relied on young boys to give the soldiers orders, Jackson was one of them at just 13 years old. At this age he was very angry and frustrated, he was mischievous and called a “trouble maker.” But he had passion and a fire that couldn’t be put out. He fell in love with Rachel, but sadly she was already married. The women back then were looked at as property and literally belonged to their husbands.
He was raised according the morals of society on the reservation, which could not be more different from the way people are conditioned in the Brave New World. The conditioning makes the citizens of Brave New World absolutely disgusted by old age, injuries and families (153). In the same vein, John was disturbed by the science of the Brave New World such as all of the twins created through the Bokanovsky process. Simple differences such as these between John and the people of the Brave New World guaranteed that he would never be able to truly belong in that society. This is reflected by the fact that John was always referred to as “the Savage” or “Mr.
