Huck Finn was raised without any rules or discipline, and a strong repulsion toward anything that might “sivilize” him. This conflict is first introduced in the first chapter, where Widow Douglas tries to force Huck to give up smoking, wear new clothes, and learn the Bible. (Twain 13-16) Because Huck is representing the
There always seems to be a brave man of distinguished courage, admired throughout the centuries for his deeds and qualities. There always seems to be a hero to follow. Usually it is a person exemplifying remarkable feats and ideals of the society. Undoubtedly, the mere concept of a hero has dramatically changed over time, just as the morals and values did. Our ancestors used to admire Beowulf, and we strive to bear at least a slight resemblance to Superman, Ironman or other comic book characters.
I could hardly believe my ears: my father, the man that we always admired and loved, the man who is hard-working and enthusiastic, died. There is no reason to prove that. I sited in the yard for a long time, until the sunlight have disappeared. We always, always image a warm, beautiful twilight in late spring, our father will knock the door of our house, and bring us gifts from all over the world, like he used to be.
It is no secret that Jesus is often portrayed as an otherworldly figure and often times not viewed as having true human parents. Despite this fact, Jesus still loved Mary and Joseph for taking care of him as a child. Gatsby, like Jesus, has a father and mother that took care of him as a child, but Gatsby “has never really accepted them as his own parents at all. The truth was that Jay Gatsby … sprang from his Platonic conception of himself” (Fitzgerald 98). This quote provides us with the detail that Gatsby has the notion that he was never born to human parents because he views himself as superior to not only them, but Jesus Christ.
Therefore, conformity molds Ivan to become even more “ordinary” (47) as he loses his personal identity to “resemble all people of a certain kind” (57). Juxtaposed by Ivan’s frustration that losing his life over the curtain is “terrible and stupid”(72), Tolstoy presents materialism as a false sense of fulfilment. This is because recollections of Ivan’s childhood are his only fulfilling, pleasant memories. The writer uses free indirect discourse to describe the “special taste” of Ivan’s “raw, shriveled French prunes”, decreasing the use of a third-person omniscient voice as Ivan reflects deeper about a life lack of authenticity. Zooming into Ivan’s point of view blurs the line between
Furthermore, both Nick and Jay Gatsby reside in the West Egg to indicate that they have not transformed into members of the social elite, and no amount of hard work can change the families that they came from. It is clear that both men recognize this, as they unconsciously denounce their backgrounds in the novel as Gatsby changed his name because “His parents were shiftless and unsuccessful farm people-his imagination had never really accepted them as his parents at all. The truth was that Jay Gatsby...sprang from a Platonic conception of himself... So he invented just the sort of Jay Gatsby that a seventeen- year- old boy would like to invent” and Nick creates the illusion that his family comes from a line of nobility as he says “The Carraways are something of a clan, and we have a tradition that we’re descended from the Dukes of Buccleuch , but the actual founder of my line was my grandfather's brother, who came here in fifty-one, sent a substitute to the Civil War, and started the wholesale hardware business that my father carries on to-day” (Fitzgerald 98
He misses his dead parents even though he doesn’t really remember them. He wishes he had them by his side. Being an orphan was always like a hole that could never be filled in Harry’s heart. All in all, Harry Potter was a bright, brave, smart kid who had leadership skills. Ron Weasley:
From the beginning of the story it is clear that there is a lack of an authority figure in Alex’s life. His parents seem to be emotionally absent, they do not question their sons lack of school attendants, nor do they question where he is and wants he is doing late at night. Alex had a very relaxed upbringing and was allowed to do whatever, whenever with no consequences. The “Droog" gang members also had a negative impact on Alex’s decision making and problem solving abilities. Growing up with this lack of authority and the inability to differ between right and wrong is the ideal environment for the makings of a psychopath.
As he sets out alone alone, he knows nothing of the world and is impressionable as a newborn. The Creature must learn from small bits of information he gleans from the De Lacys and history in books such as paradise lost(Shelley 112). The environment he lived in taught him everything he knew, affecting and creating his mindset. Therein lies the key difference between Victor and the Creatures childhoods, that Victor never changed from his childhood where the creature in his learning drastically changed: from a being who wanted acceptance to a being who swore “eternal vengeance to all mankind”(Shelley

According to Campbell, an ordinary world setting sets the scene for the soon to be hero and draws attention on the dilemma. His second rule states that the main character either has an overwhelming will power for the adventure or an outside force puts pressure on them to complete certain tasks.
