. good-for-nothing, lazy scoundrel” (Book 3 p. 28).This disrespect for his parents from other family members angers Harry and causes him to have immense contempt for the Dursley’s. Having a family who not only insulted him, but made him wear recycled clothes, and sleep in a closet under the stairs could have made Harry into a similar person, however he is nothing like them. Despite the fact that his cousin Dudley spends his childhood bullying Harry, and his adolescent years insulting him, Harry still tries to save him in his time of need. In the summer of his 5th year, Harry is arguing with Dudley when two dementors suddenly appear and attack them.
The family is known as trouble and disliked by townspeople. Despite this, Atticus 's defense of Tom is unpopular in the white community, and Scout and Jem find themselves taunted at school due to their father 's defense of a black man. Atticus consistently strives to instill moral values in his children, and hopes to counteract the influence of racial prejudice. The children view their father as frustratingly staid and bookish, until he is asked by the sheriff to shoot a rabid dog that is roaming the street. After Atticus kills the dog, Scout and Jem learn that their father is renowned as a deadly marksman in Maycomb County, but that
“Streaks of dirt ran along the walls; here and there lay tangles of dust and garbage” (Kafka 33). Not only himself, his parents and relatives don’t consider him as a human. “All these items ended up in Gregor 's room, even the box of ashes and the garbage pail from the kitchen. The cleaning woman, always in a hurry, simply flung anything that was momentarily useless into Gregor 's room” (Kafka 35). Even though his body is dirty, he doesn’t want to clean himself.
Imagine living your everyday life in a town named Tangerine, where natural disasters commonly occur. This is the situation that the protagonist, Paul Fisher, has been enduring ever since his family moved to Tangerine, Florida. The novel, Tangerine written by Edward Bloor, describes how Paul Fisher sees the world through his thick-rimmed goggles due to his damaged eyesight from “staring at an eclipse.” Paul has to be circumspect around bullies and his older brother, Erik, who seems to have dissoluteness living inside of him. Throughout the novel, the author Edward Bloor uses literary devices such as similes to make the readers visualize the descriptive situations in the story. These similes describe to the reader how different occurrences relate to other actions, objects, or living things.
Ralph Waldo Emerson once said that, “envy is ignorance; imitation is suicide.” (370). John Knowles’ A Separate Peace is set during World War I at Devon School, a boarding school for boys. The book centers on Gene Forrester, a student at Devon, who could be described as an intelligent, but jealous, conformist. A Separate Peace illustrates Gene’s envy and imitation of his friend, Finny, and how it affects himself and his relationship with Finny, and also how Gene eventually finds peace. To start, Gene’s envy and imitation of Phineas affect him in many different ways.
The Echoing green is a flashback which takes the writer on a visit to the garden. This flashback scene helps the poem relate to the echoing green where the “Old John with white hair”recalls how he used to be joyful about playing in the green space. “The Echoing green” is a poem, which is full of joy. The poem is celebrating
It says that when it came to his things everything that could go wrong did. He even began to lose acres of land until he had a little patch but even then, it was the worst farm in the town. Rip would lose acres of land but he still lived comfortably because he would have “whistled life away, in perfect contentment” (473). This proves my point that Rip Van Winkle lives comfortably and doesn’t stress too much even though others would think otherwise. Rips’ wife was “continually dinning in his ears about his idleness, his carelessness, and the ruin he was bringing on his family” (473).
They spoke of the marvels of nature. One feels captivated by the sun rays filtering through these clouds, creating a pattern on the freshly cut grass. Flowers fill the place with a sweet fragrance which uplifts the whole aura of the lawn. The fresh breeze and the chirping of the melodious birds made the tall trees and flower dance to the rhythm of the music of nature. The neatly laid stone pathway leading to the fish pond present in the corner of the glorious garden added more life to the place.
They didn't even go to jail.” (ibid, 1994: 92). The fact that the bullies were expelled and not sent to jail, is ludicrous to him; this is a plea for justice. Through his morbid reminiscence of dead people, whom he admits they were nice people, we see a gentle side of Holden. He wants acceptance, tolerance, likeability in people, and justice. Because he will never get that, he chooses to run
I also liked the part when the ghost of Christmas present showed the meaning of ignorance and want of the poor people that worked in workhouses and poor people. The past I also liked was of the ghost of Christmas future because it showed to him that if he do not change he would die, the same day that Mr. Scrooge hate that day and that if he did not helped his jobs assistant his child that was Tiny Tim would die because that family did not have the enough money to buy medicine to Tiny Tim. Tiny Tim had a problem with his leg. I did not like the part when Scrooge said to he two portly men that he would not give them donations to the poor people and instead of it he said that poor people would work in workhouses, go to prison and die. And now I would describe each of the characters of A Christmas Carol movie… Ebenezer Scrooge was a man that did not care about others.
