He hates himself and often inflicts physical pain on himself. "He thus typified the constant introspection wherewith he tortured, but could not purify, himself" to never forget what he has done (141). To him, it is a bad thing that Hester is shown publicly as a sinner, but people forget that. What is far worse than public shame is his own inner shame that he feels constantly and privately. Knowing what only he and Hester know, the secret eats away at him and drives him close to insanity.
The creature was trying to help this girl, but he was punished because of his looks (101). This causes his fury to build into evil and bitterness: “Inflamed by pain, I vowed eternal hatred and vengeance to all mankind,” (101). The creature was in pain from being shot, and he vowed to get revenge against all humans (101). Without friends, the creature has felt no love or kindness from anyone, except from blind De Lacey (95-96). This need for friends has developed into him being evil; where as if he had friends, then he probably would not want to cause pain and misery upon everyone.
She didn’t want her baby to die or to be sent to the Fringes but what she received from her sister was isolation (Wyndham 71). “So there has been a Deviation; and deviation, any deviation from the true image is blasphemy - no less. You have produced a defilement.” Due to the laws, people had to report to the governor if they see anyone or anything is deviation, so in Waknuk, discrimination is always happening. (Wyndham 72). Likely, this also shown the principles in Waknuk have blinded the people terribly, people always think it is the punishment from God toward them but actually it is not.
Therefore, he can do a lot of harm without wanting to. Indeed, he made very terrible things without even knowing, and he felt very sad about it when he realized what he had done. This song is about a guy that makes a lot of mistakes and how the singer forgives him because she thinks that he is still learning and that he is innocent. This is exactly what happens to Lennie because he made terrible mistakes, but George forgave him because he knew he didn’t do it on purpose, and that he is
In “Making Sarah Cry” the bullies judge Sarah and the main character because they look and act different. In the poem it says .”And so he gladly joined their fun Of making Sarah cry But somewhere deep within his heart, He just never knew why” this is showing that he knew that he didn’t know why he was doing it and that he could stop any day but he didn’t. Another piece of evidence is that “The funny faces that she made And the way she’d stomp her feet Whenever they mocked the way she walked Or stutter when she’d speak” This is where he is pointing out when she would do things or naming everything she would do that would trigger the bullying. This is significant because he is thinking and he knows that he does it for no reason. Even though making fun of sarah was funny but he had some doubts to begin with.
Talking about how the border guard was one of the best treated people yet, he still had parasites made me feel sympathy not only for him, but everyone else in the country who is not treated as well as him. Your language choices in the sentence “But Trumps’ critics should remember that Kim is a classic bully who, like his father and grandfather before him, has successfully bullied the United States and the rest of the world for years, as well as brutalizing his own people” works well for pathos. The terms “bully” and “brutalize” made me feel sad, until I realized it was biased language. You also used the word “defector” when describing this border guard which hurt your pathos. This makes me think of him as a traitor, which makes me not connect emotionally with
In the past, Charlie’s co-workers may be somewhat disturbed by or frightened of him inwardly because of his challenges. However, they never stopped talking to him because they were constantly making fun of him. While the situation has changed, it still has not improved for Charlie.

The novel reveals many hellish situations. It was sinful to treat Tom Robinson like trash because of hatred towards his race. It was sinful to keep Boo Radley locked away from society because of the mistakes he made. These preventable situations are like killing a mockingbird; you shouldn’t do it but it is done anyway. Tom Robinson and Boo Radley were mockingbirds because they were not a threat to society, yet were punished for being human.
The books he reads and knowledge he’s gotten has made him angry at other slaves with a lack of knowing what is going on. The life of slavery really just ruins your mind and thoughts, and makes you feel discouraged, but Frederick had the education piece in his life. In the text Frederick says, “I often found myself regretting my own existence, and wishing myself dead; and but for the hope of being free, I have no doubt but that I should have killed myself, or done something for which I should have been killed” (Douglass 54). With his newfound knowledge he starts to contemplate his existence. The hope of being free still pushes him, even if it may lead to death.
The Kite Runner exhibits many different forms of abuse regarding Hassan and Sohrab, mainly showcasing physical and sexual abuse. When talking to Amir about what he went through being in the hands of Assef, Sohrab says, “"I miss Father, and Mother too...And I miss Sasa and Rahim Khan sahib. But sometimes I'm glad they're not... here anymore...because I don't want them to see me...I'm so dirty and full of sin. "” (Hosseini, 335), describing how he feels so personally affected and depressed by this abuse that he blames it solely on himself and considers it to be his own fault. Sohrab’s father, Hassan, also experiences the same forms of abuse with Assef, and like his son, goes through the same periods of silence, not speaking a word to anyone and isolating himself from the world.
