Manolin, a boy, tends to Santiago from helping him collect his fishing gear to giving him meals. In the past he accompanied Santiago on his trips, until he switches due to the old man’s gossiped “unluckiness.” Manolin cares deeply for Santiago, and unlike him has no problem demonstrating his feelings. Unlike others Manolin has always known the old man’s strength and power, similar to how Santiago discovers it himself, although it has been static entirely. When Santiago returns to the town, Manolin “saw that the old man was breathing and then he saw the old man's hands and he started to cry…all the way down the road he was crying.” (Hemingway 122) The boy “saw that the old man was breathing” which relates to Santiago’s relief of living and being back home with the boy. Santiago often seems cold, as he does not demonstrate feelings externally.

Given that Othello trusted who he thought was his best friend, it was easier for Iago to bring Othello down. The root of Iago’s evil intentions is jealousy, which he describes to be like a “green-eyed monster which doth mock the meat it feeds on” (III,iii. 196-197).
During his time studying the family, the monster becomes more “open to love and compassion, valuing education, language, and communication as he develops the ability to comprehend and share with others,” (Brackett). At first, the monster routinely stole food from the cottagers, however, when he discovered that this action brought hardship upon them he satisfied himself “‘with berries, nuts, and roots...gathered from a neighboring wood,” (Shelley 118). This improvement in character strengthens the idea that a natural education is superior. Conversely, when the monster imagines his creator, Victor, he curses “‘his crimes & malice”’ thoughts of hatred and revenge consume him (Shelley 96). This dichotomy highlights the incompetence of Victor as a parent.

As the story progresses, Abner shows his true colors of deception and violence.
For a moment Elie begins to understand the merit of this argument and when a guard advises him to keep his father’s rations for himself, he agrees thinking, “he was right. I though deep down, not daring to admit it to myself. Too late to save your old father…”(111). However, Elie’s true morals quickly resurface and he returns to his role of devoted son recanting, “it was only for a fraction of a second but it left me feeling guilty. I ran to get some soup and brought it to my father”(111).
