This change in his character proves he is maturing more into an adult as the story progresses. Usually when children cry they are loud and immature about it while adults usually cry more quietly, which Jem did. Also, this shows a sensitive side to Jem because the tree gifts Boo left in the knothole was a sort of comfort for him and a way for Boo to communicate with others from the outside world. This makes him upsets since this comfort is gone and because Boo now is out of ways to communicate with anyone outside of his home. Another change in character occurs during the fire in Miss Maudie Atkinson’s home.
Figurative Language helps show the gloomy tone throughout the story from the first paragraph onwards. “...but the oriole nest the elm was unattended and knocked back and forth like an empty cradle” (Hurst 350). This simile gives a comparison to a tree to an empty cradle. The story goes on and tells how the older brother has watched other parents or relatives grieve over people who struggle
Boo would leave gifts for the kids in a hollowed out tree. When Ms. Maudie’s house started on fire he put a blanket around Scout. Calpurnia was another character Scout connected with. Cal talks much differently at church, Scout did not understand why. Scout came to the assumption that Cal does not want to sound like she has a high education level.
In the “Scarlet Ibis”, the scarlet ibis is a metaphor for Doodle because they both share similar traits and circumstances. When Doodle and his brother first see the bird, it was in a tree with its “long legs... perched precariously. Its wings hung down loosely, and as we watched, a feather dropped away and floated slowly down.” Similar to the bird, Doodle has problems moving his lower body and his legs are awkward until his brother teaches him how to walk. In addition, the bird doesn’t seem to be healthy and normal, just like Doodle. This is important because it Doodle’s disability is a major part of the story.
As Doodle doesn't thinks he is not a paltry because he is able to make things with his hands, the narrator convinces Doodle that he is worthless if he is just always in a wagon. “Then I’d paint a picture for him a picture of us as old men, white-haired, him with a long white beard and me still pulling him around in the go-cart” (p.147-148). When painting this picture he is making Doodle feel bad because not only does his disabilities affect him but also the narrator. Doodle is pushed towards difficult goals because the narrator is embarrassed of pulling his younger brother around in a wagon. The narrator has been embarrassed of Doodle because he can’t walk at the age he is at.” When Doodle was five years old I was embarrassed at having brother of that age who couldn’t walk, so I set out to teach him” (p.147).
The Christmas Carol is a story of an old miser that cares nothing of Christmas, until an old friend of his warns him of the terrible things that might happen if he doesn’t change his ways. He also warns of three other being that will be visiting him throughout the night. The spirit of Past, present, and Future. Although some might make the claim that either Past or Future were the most influential to Scrooge’s thoughts about Christmas. The Spirit which is most influential in Scrooge’s transformation is Present.
When Teddy is faced with predicaments with his aunt and uncle, he succumbs to pressure. As his uncle is blaring out irrational comments at him, he does nothing but “[sits] by the window and [looks] out at the rain” (Nowlan 2). Teddy’s lack of rebellion is the conflict that portrays his inability to express his own opinions in words which is a key to obtaining individuality. He is blinded by his own innocence and succumbs to his uncle’s words when he sits alone which implies that he agrees with him. Another example of his innocence that stops him from becoming an individual is when he destroys his creation.
The boy says, “I sat on my hands, heating them up, while my teeth chattered like a cup of crooked dice.” The boy says this to show that he didn 't wear his jacket outside and since others were criticizing him and that he should to put himself down about his physical appearance. The crooked teeth could symbolize how teeth should be perfect and white and the boy’s appearance and clothing isn’t perfect or popular and the boy’s race is not white. He described and wanted a cool more popular jacket like the other kids have. Soto also illustrates the boy being embarrassed about his culture when he mentions the color of the jacket as day of guacamole. The boy says, “I discovered draped on my bedpost a jacket the color of day-old guacamole.” The boy uses day old guacamole to symbolize his culture since guacamole is found in Hispanic cultures.
However, death is a difficult subject to perfectly put into words and even the greatest authors sometimes struggle to be consistent in what they are saying. Two of Frost’s poems, “Out, Out—” and “After Apple-Picking”, address the same topic of death, but in very different ways and with contrasting messages. “Out, Out—” demonstrates the transience of life while “After Apple-Picking” encourages acceptance of an inevitable death. “Out, Out—” describes a young boy surrounded by “Five mountain ranges one behind the other / Under the sunset far into Vermont.” A beautiful backdrop for a child to do a man’s work behind a saw. After being called inside for supper, the saw “Leaped out at the boy’s hand” and mangles the child’s limb.
I disagree because if someone or some group has a problem with government’s actions against their own or some other country, they shouldn’t start burning flags or other things. Burning a national flag is disrespectful since it is not going to change anything and it will send a wrong signal to others that doing this is a right way to show your opposition to any policy. There are lot of things which we don’t agree with but that should not result in a violence or burning flags and other things. Protect can be done in a peaceful manner and there are other avenues to make your voice and opinion
Although the question of whether or not Adnan Syed is innocent or guilty is so complex, the law would state that Adnan is innocent. There were no reasonable doubts about his innocence. The only logical answer seems to that, this is not a case of one man’s innocence rather the bias of someone involved in this case. Adnan’s freedom was forestalled due to this unknown because of one man’s story and one phone call from a phone log. This evidence should not have been the cause of a conviction, and should not be keeping an innocent man lock away behind bars.
The three men and Novelty Now did not ask themselves what would happen if everybody followed their guidelines. If they had asked themselves these questions they would have realized they were making unethical decisions. As Aristotle and Confucius would say you would not go wrong if you treat others the way you want to be treated (Kubasek,
In other words, the reason why we have rights are to prevent majorities from changing things. Ely brought up disparate impact, which discusses that a policy may be considered discriminatory if it has disproportionate adverse impact against any group based on race, national origin, color, religion, sex, familial status, or disability. However, Baker v Carr did not bring up adverse impacts based on those claims, so this was not a matter of federal courts in that respect either. Additionally, Ely fails to explain how a group should be worthy of protection against disparate impact. Not all minorities should be protected, for example burglars, and for that reason, his description is ambiguous.
For example, Feste says to Olivia, “I wear not motley in my brain.” (i.v.54-55). So although he may dress like a fool he does not have the intelligence of a fool and therefore should not be seen as someone who is dull. Feste is cautioning against making connections between what can be seen and what cannot, the actions and appearance of Feste do not shed light on his sanity as they are mutually exclusive. He later addresses this point again when interrogating Malvolio, “Nay, I’ll ne’er believe a madman till I see his brains.” (iv.ii.122-123). The impossibility of this request not only drives the point that Feste is incapable of determining sanity because he cannot ever see Malvolio’s brain, but that there is inherent danger in letting him analyze Malvolio’s sanity.
Just as those who are colorblind can not paint, and the crippled can not run, those with a naturally flawed or warped view of what is good can not be virtuous. Similarly, the virtuous can not take credit for their virtue because they are simply gifted with a clearer view of what is good, which is completely out of their control. Eventually, Aristotle does not completely refute this claim, but rests upon his earlier argument that one’s actions control her character: “if each man is somehow responsible for his state of mind, he will also be himself somehow responsible for the appearance” (1114b). If you are willing to believe that a person can change her state of character by habitual repeated actions, then Aristotle’s claim about
