Arthur Dent’s initial ignorant personality is shown through the characterisation of him, “It would sort itself out, he’d decided, no one wanted a bypass”. This shows that he does not pay much attention to what is happening, even though it may cause problems. However, the development in his personality is shown through the dialogue between Arthur and the others. When Zaphod states that they shouldn’t turn on the Improbability Drive, Arthur answers, “does that matter at this stage?” and turns it on, which saves all their lives. This shows the development in Arthur, showing his potentiality to solve problems.
Gatsby doesn't really do either for Nick, so he has no reason to think of Gatsby in any other way than his true self. Throughout the novel Nick and Gatsby go through many struggles together. Both have their own opinion of each other. Nick has evidence to be a very unbiased narrator for many different reasons. There is very little evidence that shows that Nick could not be a good narrator, but the amount of good evidence overtakes the bad evidence.
It has a weak plot that is hard to follow. It's about the main character’s social clumsiness and lack of communication skills as he tries to fit in. The movie has not a lot of action, showing the character's absence of emotion. If this was meant to be a comedy, it wasn’t very funny. The comedy comes from Napoleon and his friend’s awkwardness.
Despite his clear disdain for books, he can quote deep, introspective lines and build arguments using them. (pg 103). In this disarming conversation, Beatty catches Montag off guard by describing his dream and the fight they had, quoting deep literature and making his point about how books can be used to argue either side, clearly getting into Montag’s head. Yet despite his self-assurance, he is unhappy. This fact is kept hidden until after his murder, as Montag thinks of the events leading up to it.
He knows about famous authors and can quote lines from classic pieces of literature. Although this gives him an advantage because he is not ignorant like the rest of the society, it ends up being a burden. While conversing with Montag, Beatty talks about how he has tried to equate the universe and make sense of the various opinions and contradicting ideas in books. Although to people such as Montag, Faber, and Granger this knowledge seems like an advantage, it is a burden to Beatty. Beatty is puzzled and troubled by the fact that he can not make sense of the literature, and for this reason he wants to die.

As I have shown Bilbo Baggins doesn't fit the mythic hero mold of course that isn't necessary a bad thing. Every mythic hero have a flaws though in Bilbo case his flaws aren't imperfections we usually see in mythic heroes. Achilles in the Iliad was his sense of entitlement and he was pompous. Wheras Bilbo's humbleness which is a trait rarely shown in Greek and Roman mythology is what not only made him a likable character, but made him different from other mythic heroes.
Over the past few decades the ideas of aliens has morphed into a craze, that one has to ask themselves, “what is an alien?” With “aliens” being in Hollywood movies and roller coaster rides, what do we actually consider to be aliens? Is it a life form that doesn’t live on earth or is it a “little green man”(dictionary.com). The media has totally changed the perspective of what foreign life forms are. Making them almost unbelievable. The term alien no longer has the mystery and excitement and possibility behind it, rather it has become a more colloquial term in regards to disbelieve.
Analyzing these texts, Oedipus the King by Sophocles, Truancy by Isamu Fukui and lastly, "death of a Salesman" by Arthur Miller, it is found that all the protagonist of these texts have certain qualities. These qualities include setting unrealistic objectives, causing others to suffer, and sacrificing themselves in the end, as their ambition gets the best of them. The prompt given, also encourages ambition, not just ambition but over ambition. This prompt encourages the audience to not be cautious with their lives and choices, as proven in this
He supposedly has extensive insight on, “The rules of justice (BLANK).” With that in mind, he seems to lean further away from justice into anarchy. Apollo is dismissing the methods of the Furies completely and establishes personal motives to save Orestes. So despite his knowledge, he ignores the concepts of justice, and its appointed executers, and creates an anarchy where the lack opposition makes him a slave to himself. So in attempting to preserve justice, he created a verdict that, although it was indirectly justifiable, failed to create a verdict for Orestes that was justly
Throughout the story, Nick is considered to be an honest and reliable narrator, but in fact he is not a reliable narrator. Looking at the way Nick narrates the story, it is in a way that the accounts are very much one sided as opposed to it being an impartial reminiscence of his past. Nick says he is a man who is inclined to reserve all judgement, when in fact throughout this story he has criticized and been making negative judgement calls to all characters except Gatsby. He would say that Gatsby is worth the whole bunch and that the other characters is just a rotten crowd. In my opinion i agree but also I don 't agree, I don 't agree because Gatsby is just another guy in love with a girl trying to get her attention but i do agree
Jason Compson’s inability to get over the grudge that he has for Caddy, proves that one must forgive what has happened in the past to be happy in the present. Similar to Quentin and Benjy, Jason is an unreliable narrator as he does not accurately give a representation of what is going on around him. Although Jason understands the difference between past and present, certain details are muddled and twisted by his point of view. An example of this is when Jason is asked to show a customer “a churn or a nickel’s worth of screen hooks”. Both of these items are extremely unalike and would never be asked for as a substitution for one another.
