Mr. Atticus Finch has been proven multiple times in the story that he is a good hearted gentleman that only wishes to do the right thing. One instance is just the simple fact that he defended Tom Robinson to his best ability when the whole caucasian community in Maycomb County wanted him locked up for his alleged raping of Mayella Ewell. "You aren 't really a nigger-lover, then, are you?" "I certainly am. I do my best to love everybody...
Towards the end of his first term he was reelected as president. During this time he had noticed that the Republican party was becoming a mess. Towards the end of his second term the Republican Party and now the new Federalist. During this time Washington had tried to hold the party together but he was unable to. When the end of his second term came up they requested if he would like to server a third term but he politely declined.
Andrew Jackson was a villain for a few reasons. One reason why Jackson was a villain is because he put America at risk. After he won this first term as president, Jackson put his supporters in top government positions. This meant that Jackson put less qualified people in charge of making the decisions that are necessary for America’s success. Furthermore, even after the Peggy Eaton affair in which Jackson was forced to have his unqualified cabinet to resign, he still only took advice from his loyal friends and supporters, known by his enemies as the “kitchen cabinet”.
Adam Choquette Period 7 Mr. Coulter Honors English II March 3, 2016 Breaking Man’s Chains In the last chapter of Anthem, Equality reflects, “The best in me had been my sins and my transgressions”(98). He no longer holds the belief that society is simply ‘misguided’ or that they are ‘forgiving’. Instead, Prometheus embraces individuality, rejecting the concept that, “We are all in all and all in one” held by his former society (19). “I am done with this creed of corruption,” Equality declares, no longer willing to slave for his brothers (97). It is this declaration of independence which breaks Equality’s chains allowing him to rejoice in his ‘sins’.
Finny’s Finny’s private and emotionally connected confession of truly caring about Gene revealed a whole new unaccepted side of Finny: “...‘I know I kind of dragged you away at the point of a gun, but after all you can’t come to the shore with just anybody and you can’t come by yourself, and at this teen-age period in life the proper person is your best pal.’ He hesitated and then added, ‘which is what you are,’ and there was silence on his dune” (21). At Devon, Finny is admired for his strength and slightly egotistical confidence. During this time in society, men were not supposed to show strong variability, especially in times of war. This declaration of their friendship takes place alone on a forbidden beach representing their forbidden best friendship. The circumstances had been slightly forced as Finny “dragged” Gene “away at the point of a gun” symbolizes how Finny has pushed Gene to reach this point in their lives.
From all of the characters in the story, I feel the most for Lennie. Going along with the literary technique of naturalism, the fact that Lennie has a mental disability is because that is how he was born. There is nothing you can do that can change your heredity, and people judge Lennie on that all the time. George is the main culprit when he says that everything would be easier without having Lennie around. We all know that, but George doesn’t have to tell Lennie that to his face to make him feel worse about himself.
Amir also realizes why Baba had helped all those people and why Baba tried to treat both him and Hassan as equally as possible. This attracts the reader's attention because now we know that Baba was never perfect but tried his hardest to redeem himself. In chapter 3, Baba tells Amir ‘“There is only one sin, only one. And that is theft. Every other sin is a variation of theft.
Finally, they went to the swamp where Stapleton kept the dog and found nothing, inferring that he had drowned in it and with him, the Baskerville’s curse. I’d recommend this book because it’s very entertaining and it’s unpredictable. You may think that you’ve solved a small puzzle but then Sherlock’s deductions show you the contrary and they blow your mind away, they’re not fantasy. In addition, you see Sherlock and Watson’s character development and how they’ve reached a point where they can rely and trust each other. Surely if you read this book you’ll want to read the others and immerse in the fantastic world of Sherlock Holmes, he’ll never disappoint
Firstly, Nick’s opening narration is iconic, and maybe one of the best beginnings ever: “In my younger and more vulnerable years my father gave me some advice that I’ve been turning over in my mind ever since: Whenever you feel like criticizing anyone, just remember that all the people in this world haven’t had the advantages that you’ve had.” We see that Nick is gentle and never underestimate anyone, which makes him the only one to sympathize with Gatsby. Nick 's open-mindedness gives him a deeper perspective on the people around him and protects him from falling subject to the glitzy, superficial materialism of the 1920s. This iconic narration help us to increase our real life capacity for empathy. We can be better able to understand other people, empathize with them and view the world from their
Jim is a good friend to Huck because he protects Huck from seeing his dead father in the cabin (Twain 52). Jim proves his friendship early in their journey, but it takes Huck a bit longer. Huck eventually proves his friendship to Jim by ripping up a letter that he was going to send to Miss Watson. The letter would explain that Jim was innocent of Huck’s “death” and where he would be going (Twain 220). Huck proves his friendship to Jim with this small, but the very courageous action of not sending the letter and ripping it up instead.
