He carried this personality throughout the story until the end. Poe wrote “‘Yes,’ I said, ‘for the love of God!’ but to these words I hearkened in vain for a reply. I grew impatient.” (19).
Tom was found guilty and was soon killed after going to jail, and that hit Jem very hard, he was very tore up about it. In the book Jem specifically says, “No sir, they oughta do away with juries. He wasn’t guilty in the first place and they said he was. ”(295) Jem constantly throughout the book claims that Tom is not guilty and wants it to change, and doesn’t know how to except that the jury said different and that’s how it has
Travis Bradberry once stated, “Everyone knows that life isn't fair. Saying it's not fair suggests that you think life is supposed to be fair, which makes you look immature and naive.” Things don’t always go the way people want them to and sometimes they do not want to accept that. The characters in William Goldman’s novel, The Princess Bride, face difficult trials, where they nearly die in most of them. Additionally, none of the characters get a happy ending.
Arthur Miller's utilization of incongruity in The Crucible shows exactly how tricky the human species is. He makes a situation that spins around the congregation and how the general population must take after their decrees and keep their dedication to God, however all they truly do conflicts with their ten edicts. John submitted infidelity by yearning for Abbigail when he was at that point wedded to Elizabeth and had constructed a family with her. Abigail is desirous of Elizabeth for having John and her yearning for retaliation drives her to lie and control the town as she did. It is essentially unexpected how all through every one of the allegations and guards, everyone would lecture their confidence in God and the congregation yet whatever they did was definitely not what they were required to.

Through this, Richard Wright is trying to show that adolescents often demand autonomy, but they are not ready to accept the responsibility that comes with it. Throughout the story, Dave demonstrates over and over that he is not ready for the responsibility that comes with manhood by lying. An example of Dave’s childish lies and deceit happens after he had shot the mule, and he tries to cover up his
Situational irony is created in the text through Proctor reciting “ thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image… You have said that twice, sir… Adultery, John”(Miller.II.12.). This is an example of Situational Irony because the only commandment Proctor couldn’t remember is the one he broke. Proctor’s inability to remember his commandments causes the community to question his faithfulness to his religion and in return creates conflict later in the trials when people question his judgment and accuse him of witchcraft.
This was a huge obstacle in Conrad’s life. Therefore, Beth had a major impact on Conrad and Calvin, however, it may have been cold and heartless. Over all, Guest abstained from putting Beth’s point of view in the novel, Ordinary People for many reasons. The most prevalent one was to show how hard of a time Beth had with her feelings. By not putting Beth’s point of view in the novel, the author showed what everyone thought of her and how little she truly expressed her
Erdrich’s short story has six characters, three major and three minor. The first major character is our nameless narrator who is an awful person that steals things just because he feels like it, “Who I am is just the habit of what I always was, and who I’ll be is the result” (p. 127). The narrator also has a very hard time keeping healthy relationships with family and significant others. The second major character is the baby, who the narrator names “Mason Joseph Andrews”, we don’t know much about him besides the fact that he’s a baby and survives the cold.
That is a huge part of him being the true monster of the book. His ignorance to say I messed up I need to fix this. It was because of his fear that people would be angry with him or turn his hypocrite speeches against him that lead him to no fix the problems that only he could

Proctor begins his pleas by stating he needs assistance to get the favorable view, especially if no one steps in to show mercy. And how the Magistrates already are delusioned by the devil yet they know they are innocent. Although they were imprisoned they were still being accused of being seen making no sense to him. Then brings in how the Carriers sons were tormented till saying the “truth” but how they blamed their mother making her serve nine weeks. Even so his own son did not want to “confess” and could have continued to be tortured if no one had stepped in, which I believe if someone with power had stepped in since the start they would have not gone on that mad killing of
I almost wonder if Gilman was trying to speak out facetiously through the story about how mistreatment of the mentally ill is a phenomenon that will continue to take place in the future. Furthermore, Jane was ill, and having been mistreated in her circumstance only made her existing condition and also the unpleasant topic for me worse. Looking at this story with Feminist theory in mind would be fitting, as her husband dismissed her voiced needs because he believed he knew what was best for her and she did not. I interpret this selection of text as sexism; though I’m sure he loved her very much, he was still controlling and believed she couldn’t think for herself for she was a woman.
This is true for the title characters in William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet. The young couple trusted Romeo’s confessor, Friar Lawrence, but it ended up being that trust that got them in trouble.
