This info gives me all the clues to say yes Okonkwo was sympathetic if you look at the patterns. His father Unoka was quoted “in his day was lazy and improvident and was quite incapable of thinking about tomorrow”. Basically saying he didn’t care about his life, so in what possible way could he have cared for Okonkwo’s. And his wife Ekwefi he didn’t technically shoot. He didn’t kill so there might have been sympathy there because she was completely defenseless and didn’t die so you can tell he intentionally didn’t kill her.
McCandless is a caring and modest person while he was been thoughtless about his trek as Krakauer reveals throughout the book. Krakauer portrays Chris McCandless as a person in the world who did not wish to ally with society and wanted to flee from people to become unrestricted of rules of society. Also, he did not feel attached to his community and people so he decided to escape from public as much as he could. Therefore, McCandless can be called as unintelligent, but his journey proves how humble and warm- hearted he is as a person. Can it be said that McCandless found himself before his death?
How you ever considered how lucky you are to be human, knowing about the past, your amazing gift to express emotions and how you feel? In the book The Giver by Lois Lowry, the community is made up of people, but they are not truly human; they do not show emotions or any other human traits. All but one, Jonas, are people who do not understand their world, do not know about their past, do not show emotions or take risks, and they do not have memories. Because Jonas takes risks, he is able to grow in his humanness. Jonas begins to love Gabe, and he grows in his understanding of love and sacrifice.
You can see that they stand for safety because Henry Dobbins completely trusted them with his life even though they do not do anything to protect him. To everyone else it is just a piece of fabric, but to him and the other people who are with him it is much more than that. They represent something that they won’t forget, home. The stocking most importantly show that the soldiers need that sense of security and something to take their mind away from the war. The war takes place in a foreign country where they have no sense of security, safety and most importantly it does not feel like a home to them.
“He [Jonas] felt surprisingly, no fear, nor any regret at leaving the community behind. But he felt a very deep sadness that he had left his closest friend behind.” (page 153). If Jonas’ community was a utopian society, why would he have left? In the novel The Giver, by Lois Lowry, Jonas lives in a world without color, love, individuality, memories, and pain. As captivating as it sounds, a world without these qualities seems flavorless to me.
Both Dr. Manhattan and Captain Atom have developed this sense of loneliness because they no longer see the world as they once did. Both were once human and have been changed on a molecular level into heroic figures. Neither of them asked for these powers but they are both expected to use them to benefit someone other than themselves. Society only wants them when they need them, but otherwise don’t accept them. It’s hard for them to really connect with anyone else because of the way they view the world.
It could be safer to be a conformist because you wouldn’t get in trouble as often as someone who is a nonconformist. Conforming could help you be a better person. The dangers of conforming is that you could fit it with everyone else that you would lose your individuality and be someone you are not. Leopard Man is an example of a nonconformist because he doesn 't care what anyone thinks of him and he does whatever he feels like and even though society thinks he is a freak, he’s just being himself. Today many teens want to fit in and not stick out from everyone else.
The idea of not using physical violence to kill someone, but to kill someone with emotional violence as Willy does towards Biff is also a tremendous loss in the play. The Loman family breaks apart and relationships are killed. But a similarity in both plays is that the tragic hero does die. Miller shows a different kind of violence that still correlates to the elements of a
Samuel Parris was a man who cared a little too much about people 's opinion about him because of him being power hungry. He had a right to feel like that as a minister but because he cared so much it lead him to make poor decision. During the trials he only cared about clearing Abigail and Betty 's name so he wouldn 't look bad for having witchcraft under his roof. He didn 't really care about everyone
He was unable to socialize with anyone other than himself due to his depression, anger, and nastiness. He avoided socializing with anyone he came in contact with, even people such as his co-workers or classmate friends. These certain problems would never be considered a tragic hero, which is a sign that the Underground Man is indeed the anti-hero. Most tragic heroes would have no problem talking to people in general, let alone people they know. If he were to be the tragic hero, he would be able to interact with people and his environment in a positive
