A Man of True Dignity In a world full of injustice and cruelty, people like Atticus who fight against that norm are incredibly important. Harper Lee’s novel, To Kill a Mockingbird remains one of the best novels ever written, partially because of Atticus, a very wise man who embodies exactly what dignity ought to be. Atticus carries himself in a matter that deserves respect and honor. Not a word comes out of his mouth that he has not thought through carefully and he possesses words of wisdom for any scenario or situation in life. Throughout the novel, Atticus clearly lives his life in a very discerning, upstanding and peaceful manor.
He was a very intelligent and hard-working man. John was also well-respected because he was a honest and upright guy that spoke his mind. An example from the book, “Proctor, respected and even feared in Salem, has come to regard himself as a kind of fraud.” (893). The people in the community of Salem respected John and viewed him as a independent and well-worked man. In Addition, John Proctor was also a tragic hero because he redeemed himself from a mistake that he made, and that was committing Adultery.
Therefore, giving him the title of royalty and showing superiority. His power and control over Thebes makes him important, and this power and importance leads to a lack of mercy for criminals.. CREON. I have summoned you here this morning because I know that I can depend on you: your devotion to King Laius was absolute; you never hesitated in your duty to our late ruler Oedipus; and
He was remarkably well received by everyone, which is why the decision to have Washington be our first president was unanimous; a decision that will make him go down in history as one of the most beloved and incorruptible leaders in the new world. George Washington was very great and important man with an incorruptible and exceptional character. George Washington was not particularly gifted in any one area. He had very limited education, and possessed no real intellectual talent. “That he was too illiterate unlearned, unread for his station and reputation is equally past dispute.” (Page 3) At the time, one didn’t have
He was hung at the end of the play, but his name be remembered exactly how he wanted it to be. “He have his goodness now. God forbid I take it from him!” (1273) Metaphorically speaking, Proctor was put into a crucible, melted down, and came out in the purest form possible. John Proctor perfectly fits the role of a tragic hero because he has all the qualities of a tragic hero. John Proctor's main flaw was his excessive pride which sealed his fate.
Cunningham was part of a mob last night, but he's still a good man” (210). He didn’t do it because he's a bad person; it was the mob's frenzy that made him do that. Then, surprisingly, at the end, a Cunningham made the jury hesitate while they were taking their decision which supports that the Cunninghams, just like everyone, can be both good and
The situational irony is in the fact that Gantos was, in fact, a criminal, yet his dad failed to see that reality when he was pegging criminals on the streets. Furthermore, situational irony is shown when Jack reflects on his experience: “Ironically, in spite of all the fear and remorse and self-loathing, being locked up in prison is where I fully realized I had to change my life for the better, and in one significant way I did” (7). Rather than pouting and feeling sorry for himself while in
The murderer asks, “why will you say that I am mad?” and throughout the story he continuously defends his behavior, “The disease had sharpened my senses --not destroyed --not dulled them,” and he asserts, “I describe the wise precautions I took,” making him seem on edge and untrustworthy of the reader. If the short story had not been in the first person, how defensive he was about his sanity would not have been as clear. He assures the reader that he is sane, also showing that everyone around most certainly believes he is not. The first person point of view makes the defensive tone prominent throughout the short
Example; in the short movie the unnamed narrator was working for the old man. And, in the short story the unrevealed narrator loved the old man, but his evil eye was so unappealing and a threat to him. My opinion on the movie and book. These stories will not have you snore, it involves a lot of thinking and the way Edgar Allan Poe (the author) describe himself in the book, had my jaws drop! The movie (1941) is amazing, again it's a lot of logical thinking.
In the end, Jefferson does what Grant had told him to do, walk. Grant was told that "'He was the strongest man in that crowded room, Grant Wiggins,'" (Pg. 253) after Jefferson walked to the chair. Grant is the man who can make a man who had been wrongly convicted, called a hog by his own lawyer and sentenced to death decide that he will walk to the chair, proud of who he
