In the first part of the book, Montag thought he was the happiest he could be.
It has been well documented that Eddie’s uniform is a sort of oppression for him, limiting him to a caricature of a hero that he does not believe himself to be. For the second time in the film, however, we see Eddie without his uniform on, and similar to the first instance, it is only with Candy that he can peel away this exterior and be free from the judgement that he feels around others. Much like the framing does, the costuming in this final scene leaves us with a sliver of hope for Eddie as we see that with Candy, he may be able to avoid isolation, free himself from the shackles of his war memories and the superficial ideas of those around him, and ultimately return to some sense of normalcy. For the majority of the short film Cigarette Candy, both the framing and costuming give insight into Eddie’s feelings of entrapment and isolation. They also, however, seem to leave us with some ideas about how to help those in similar situations.

Because this piece was written to be spoken, the use of repetition has a greater impact. While the audience listens, they can detect the emphasis the speaker puts on certain words. For example, Rowling reveals a specific instance from her past, where a young man who lost everything wished happiness for Rowling’s future. Not only was this ironic considering the horrible acts this man has endured, but it was also very impactful because of the way Rowling depicted it. This highlights another main idea, that life is a gift and there are always people who have it worse.
Do you share my madness?” (Shelley 28). After everything he went through, Victor still thought that the quest for knowledge was worth the death of his entire family because male identity is tied to his romanticized quest, “Do not return to your families with the stigma of disgrace marked on your brows.” (215). We must ask, what shifts Victor’s purpose from a warning to a doubling down on his male hubris? In part, it is a refutation on his own feminine nature. His inability to except feminine qualities within himself causes him to fail at caring for his creation, to separate himself from the domestic life, and to view femininity as a
His final attitude towards the Socs were softened, even though his gang still hate them. Ponyboy’s initial attitude towards the Socs was all about looking cool and tuff all the time. He was raised that way, trained to hate the rich. “Greasers can’t walk alone too much or they’ll get jumped.” This shows that Ponyboy was trained at a very young age to be on the lookout for Socs at all times. “Not like the Socs, who jump Greasers and wreck houses and throw beer blasts for kicks, and get editorials in the paper for being a public disgrace one day and an asset to society the next.” This shows that the public eye are more biased towards the Socs.
Once Huck comes to the realization that he is technically committing a crime, his conscience kept saying, “But you knowed he was running for his freedom, and you could a paddled ashore and told somebody” (109). Huck feels nothing but guilt for doing such a thing when in reality, he is just being a good friend. The law forces Huck to question his actions time and time again, to the point where he almost betrays Jim. It poisons people’s brains into believing they are above different races. Although Huck looks down upon Jim, he truly did care about him.
In The Cog, Charles Fritch uses symbolism to show readers that life choices can cause regret in future years. The tough decisions that people make can cause the most fulfilling life or they can wake up one day miserable. James Maxwell was one who wished he had followed his dreams instead of living with a more practical life. He had a very successful life but he wasn’t doing what he had always dreamt of. He was the president of the world but by his standards, that wasn’t enough.
This quote shows, how Tom is trying to changed Ben’s perspective of work in Ben’s mind, implanting the idea that whitewashing could actually be something fun. Later as the story comes to an end, author uses inner thinking to support the theme, show resolution, and Tom’s motivation. As the excerpt ends, Tom deceived all of the neighborhood boys to do his bidding, without them realizing. Another example is, in the text it says, “If he hadn’t run out of whitewash he would have bankrupted every boy in the village. Tom said to himself that it was not such a hollow world, after all”.
He can hold it when he's speaking.’” (Golding 36), which gives everybody a chance to voice themselves and support Ralph voluntarily. This strategy of gradually building a positive reputation prior to giving orders to the boys highlights Ralph’s ability to gain authority, whilst acknowledging that he is not superior to any of the boys. This is in comparison to Jack, who falls prey to the excitement of proving his hunting capabilities to the boys, using it as an excuse to lead the boys, which essentially serves as the cause of the chaos the island falls into. He eventually even destroys the conch, symbolizing his role as a catalyst in the loss of democracy, and thus
As the novel progresses, Huck starts developing as a mature young character by showing some sense of morality because he is now aware of how the duke and the dauphin have pretended all this time. For the first time, he chooses to challenge and expose the duke and the dauphin by preventing the malicious and fake schemes of these men to continue. The first actual action that Huck seem to take is his acquisition of the $6,000 in gold, which he puts on Wilks 's coffin. Despite his own development as a "mature" young boy, he makes every effort to try to understand the contradictory messages he gets from his personal experiences and from society. This can be seen when Huck does not give the money that he took from the duke and the dauphin back to the Wilks sisters as soon as possible.
Society has always been something that changes over time. Somebody can be upset at these changes yes, but we can 't go back in time just because it would be more convenient for a few people. The needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few after all I suppose. As things are always changing, perhaps in the future the very facts of society that people hate, would become obsolete, just for a new problem to arise. Pleasing everybody is impossible in this world.
