After Algernon died, Charlie realized that he would start losing intelligence soon. Charlie decided to pick up a book that he used to enjoy, called Paradise Lost, “but when I picked up Paradise Lost I couldn’t understand it at all. I got so angry I threw the book across the room” (Keyes 23). When Charlie throws the book, it demonstrates how frustrated Charlie was because he couldn’t read it. The author also illustrated the level of stressed Charlie had by making Charlie throw the book instead of just being mad at himself.
As Pony boy gets in trouble Darry wants him to use his brain too. Even though soda has a job but, he is a dropout and which he works at a gas station. So then, when Pony is going to be jumped again they helped him. He even knows that the town he is in. If a pony boy were to move he would not like the town.
I think that when Ponyboy says " “I lie to myself all the time. But I never believe me.” He means that he always tells himself that he is not who he really is, but in the end he realizes that he is who he is and that he should not resort to lying. I think this because when he says that he lies to himself, he is trying to tell himself he is different than who he is. He want 's to be like the rest of the greasers. I know he is different from the rest because the reason he got jumped by the Socs is because he had no one to go to the movies with.
Tension between the characters in the novel “The Outsiders” is like stretching a rubber band until it breaks. After reading chapter one of the novel “The Outsiders” by S. E. Hinton, I can summarize that it is about a fourteen year old boy named Ponyboy, who is apart of a gang called the greasers and how he has strong feeling against his oldest brother. Also, in the text the author writes about how Ponyboy 's parents died in a car accident. I believe that Ponyboy doesn 't like Darry because he does not have parents and Darry trying take the parent role. First and foremost, Ponyboy doesn 't like Darry because he is trying to be his guardian.

Both with different values and motivations. Over the course of the novel, we see Romeo does not always make the smartest decisions. An example of this is when he buys the poison from the apothecary.

However, when Juliet heard of Romeo’s banishment, she thought irrationally at first, but Juliet thought through what had happened
Especially when Willy becomes violent when things do not go his way. This is shown when Biff says to his mother “Because I know he’s a fake and he doesn’t like anybody around who knows!”(Act 1). Although tragedies with Shakespeare usually involves violence and murder. Miller follows this formula differently. The idea of not using physical violence to kill someone, but to kill someone with emotional violence as Willy does towards Biff is also a tremendous loss in the play.
Even when fasting is no longer as popular as it used to be the artist does not stop, instead he continues fasting. He no longer performs in front of crowds of thousands of people. Now he sits in a cage above some wild animals at the circus and hopes people walk by and notice him. Dr. Karbelnig states that this is a perfect example of narcissism, “The artists used to starve himself for the entertainment of others, but now he does it because he doesn’t know how to live any other life” (Karbelnig 965). The hunger artist is a sad man living a sad life, there is no one remotely close to him and the last person to see him before he died was a random worker at the circus where he performed.
Still being a teen, Jack fails at this obstacle of change during his first attempt as he can’t deal with the killing of a living organism after first arriving. Jack is still very connected to his identity as a civil individual and therefore struggles when killing the pig since he is forced to change, express leadership and be productive, however isn’t able to kill it as “There came a pause… only long enough for them to understand what an enormity the downward stroke would be...Jack’s face was white under the freckles… the unbearable blood.” (Golding, 31). Thus, witnessing failure in the beginning of novel as he is gaining experience from a new life where civility is ignored and savagery is widely required, in order to be productive, gain authority and survive. This event is significant throughout the novel since Jack experiencing such humiliation leads him to strive for success as he continues to attempt the change in his life while the group is isolated from society, compared to how the Germans viewed the world, differently than everyone else as the military served a form of dictatorship, and savagery against non-Germans, consequently demonstrating isolation and struggle for change in the world during World War

When Ponyboy returns home past his curfew Darry is furious, but also extremely concerned, so he questions Pony by saying ‘“I reckon it never occurred to you your brothers might be worrying their heads off … Can’t you use your head?”’() As before Darry had learned Ponyboy and Johnny had been sleeping in an empty lot while it was cold outside and responded by saying “”You haven’t even got a coat on.’”() Darry reacted in a manner that seemed like he was uncaring and mean, but Ponyboy had scared him by risking getting injured or ill. Darry had been forced to grow up faster to take the place as caretaker of his brothers
