Joe is only able to relive his past, in his mind. He remembers the wonderful times he had experienced in his life before the incident , where he would visit the girl he fell in love with. He remembered his life, even further back, to his childhood, where he would play with children from around his neighborhood. On the other hand, he would also remember the mistakes he has made in life, the people he
Both of the main characters suffered major consequences from the war. It is clear that Joe experienced worse consequences because he was affected as an individual. Charlie experienced awful consequences but they did not necessarily affect him internally like they affected Joe. Joe was affected physically and has to live with the condition he is in for the rest of his life. Charlie was affected more socially and he has ways of coping with his losses.
Just like Coalhouse Walker Jr., Joe is a man of his word. If he says he is going to do something, he is going to do it. He told his mother that he was going to kill whoever raped her, and he did just that. Everyone has a strong relationship with someone, and Joe’s just so happen to be with his mother. If you truly love and care about someone, you sometimes have to take risks to show that you really care.
When Joe’s feelings of guilt for leaving his father for Bill and confusion in how he should approach his father about the dilemma are exposed by a third person point of view, readers can see the internal conflict going on in Joe, who evidently cares about his father’s input in the matter at hand. When Joe comes to terms and decides to casually tell his father the truth about what is going on, we see an honest relationship because Joe does not embellish the fact of Bill Harper with any lies, rather he gets straight to the point, directly telling his father he wants to go fishing with Bill and asking politely for his approval. In addition, Joe’s father responds through the third person point of view of Trumbo, stating, “Then he said why sure go along Joe. And then a little later his father said has Bill Harper got a rod?” (4). This indirect quote by
Joe continues to pursue in rowing even though he had to undergo some treacherous weather during his rowing practices. Determined, focused, and brave, Joe continued on with rowing. “The girls in the library lawn who had glanced appreciatively his way had had to overlook what was painfully obvious to him: that his clothes were not like those of most of the other students..” (Brown, 13). Based off the quote you can conclude that Joe didn’t have the newest clothes but he continued to go to school despite the fact he was a little different from his peers.
Death shows throughout the story that he has feelings for people. He talks about things that he likes and dislikes about each character. Death seems to be sad and serious throughout the whole story. He never really shows happiness at all. Death shows love as he kisses the souls he collects to make them feel better(Zusak 350).
Throughout the story it is clear the Ray loves Annie very much but, he does put a lot of stress onto her with all the time he spends on the field and the little time he spends back at the house with Annie and leaves her a big farm and daughter to take care of while he is always away traveling to pursue his dreams. Also throughout the book Shoeless Joe it does touch on how Annie feels on some of the things, she is always supportive of Ray saying things like “if it makes you happy you should do it” to him but it would be interesting to see if that is how she internally feels. It would be really different to fill all of the
Tom and Huck both overcome their fears of Injun Joe and the public’s awareness of them to accomplish heroic achievements, and in doing so; they are successfully able to rebuke them both. Injun Joe is shown as someone who is a slave to his Sid, his low level human instincts. He was portrayed as always greedy, short-tempered, and monstrously vengeful. There was a streak of not very important or serious that follows his character throughout the story, with him actually utters the
Zusak’s parents have had experience with the Nazis in their life, so Zusak had a primary source to go to for facts. Zusak’s novel is told from the perspective of a narrator called Death. Since Death is obviously not a real person, The Book Thief is a fictional piece of literature. Although Death is a fictional narrator, he does describe factual events that happened during the time of the Holocaust and World War II. Liesel, who is another fictional character, is the main character of the novel and she learns about historical events that occurred during the time period.
This assignment provides a scenario in which Joe finds himself relying on self defence after a late night walk home, Joe was crossing the road away from a group of youths that then started shouting abuse at him. One youth then followed and approached Joe, as he approached Joe then swung a punch harder than expected and knocked the youth unconscious. As the defendant Joe will need to be advised on his defence and this assignment will consider relevant law from previous cases and apply it to the material facts and various issues within his case. Particular guidelines have been put in place by The CPS (Crown Prosecution Service) to set the standard of self defence and the grounds upon which it can be claimed; it must be in order to defend one's self, family, property or in order to prevent crime or apprehend an offender. The first issue that must be taken into consideration would be the fact the youths crossed the road when they saw Joe cross to then start shouting abuse at him, for anyone late at night this would be very intimidating.
