He called both of them over to him but they were not sure what to do. “As Mr. Dolphus Raymond was an evil man I accepted his invitation reluctantly, but I followed Dill” (Lee 267). When they began to talk they found out that what he was drinking was coke and not alcohol, like people assumed he was and that he was a really nice man who just didn’t want to deal wiht the world around him. Scout’s neighbor Boo Radley had never gone outside before and shown his face. This made the town talk and they made up stories about why he never came out.
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
In both Mockingjay and Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, Collins and Rowling show how distressing memories reduce a person to a lesser version of themselves. In Mockingjay, Katniss finds it difficult to find her strength again due to the painful memories she has from her experience in the Hunger Games. Before Katniss acquiring most of her distressing memories, she was a strong, independent girl who was focused on surviving and protecting the people that she loves at all costs. The painful memories affect her so strongly that it even restricts her from doing normal activities such as riding the elevator in District 13. In one instance, she insists that her and Gale takes multiple flights of stairs, thinking to herself, “We could take
Katniss had changed during her childhood as well. After her father dies and her mother shuts everybody out, Katniss becomes tougher and determined to keep her family’s stomachs full. When Katniss meets Rue, she begins to realize that other districts have different have different problems than her. During their conversation, Rue states “Oh  I’ve never had a whole leg to myself before” (Collins 202), at this moment, Katniss realized that her district, District 12, was not the only district that starves. Katniss started to understand other problems in Panem as Rue told Katniss about her
In the text it says “Gangs of ruffians sometimes broke into her lectures and threw rotten eggs at her.” This shows that even though she was harshly disrespected, she fought because she knew that whether people liked it or not, they needed women's rights. “One hundred years after her birth, Susan B. Anthony’s dream had come true.” This part of the text shows that Anthony fought for years and years and even though it was after her death, women got equal rights. Without her, it certainly would have taken way longer for these equal rights to come into place. Who knows, we may not have even have women’s
Have you ever had a disagreement with someone about a difference of opinion? Sarah Vowell, in her book Shooting Dad, talks about how she has a very different viewpoint on guns. From a young age, she said that she does not like guns, while on the other hand, her father loves them. Vowell encounters obstacles with her father because of their differences but still learns to accept his passions, which proves how differences can be overcome. Vowell and her father express their own opinions very vividly to each other, which sometimes causes problems.
Harper Lee shows examples of Atticus’ beliefs in Tom Robinson, by stating “ Tom Robinson a colored black man, Jem no jury in this part of the world is going to say your guilty, but not everyone gets a charge like that. It was either a straight acquitical or nothing. (Chapter16, page 219) Harper also indicates the Parenting of Jem and Scout by saying I wanted you to see what real courage is, instead of getting the idea tht courage is a man with a gun in his hand. Its when you know you’re licked before you begin but you begin anyway and you see it though no matter what. You rarely win, but sometimes you do.
However, In don’t give up the fight she told her best friend and then her and her best friend told the principal. Therefore this book represents the theme of courage. Even though the two stories have many things in common and some differences, they both have the same theme of courage. Although both of them do have the theme of courage, The book Making Sarah Cry shows the theme courage more than Don’t Give Up the Fight this shows because even though she was always picked on she still came outside and also when the other person was getting bullied she stood up for him instead of picking on him too like he did to her. That is why Making Sarah Cry shows more examples of having courage as the
life was tough the first year, I didn’t know anything or anyone, I didn’t even know a hint of English. I was suppose to be in 3rd grade but they placed me in 4th grade which meant that they expected me to know more. In fourth grade, I didn’t learn much but in 5th grade I had this teacher named Mrs.Gomez and she pushed me so much into doing a better job. She helped me out a lot and supported me because she had a similar story as mine. She would always say “ Roma, talk to your friends in English not Nepali,” and that actually helped because I got the hang of just communicating in
Although Boo Radley is a mystery in the community, he is the reason behind many of the life lessons Scout learns. Atticus tells Scout and Jem the day they go shooting their guns “Shoot all the bluejays you want, if you can hit ‘em, but remember it’s a sin to kill a mockingbird.” Though this sounds like advice a parent might give their young children. I believe it was a direct reference to Boo Radley in hopes to teach them a lesson. Boo Radley was an innocent and harmless man accused of crimes he didn’t commit. Like Miss Maudie's definition of the mockingbird ",they don't do one thing but make music for us to enjoy.” (Lee, 119).
Fahrenheit 451 had many different pairs of characters that had many different thoughts about certain things in life. Mildred, Montag 's wife, was very negative and only cared about herself, but Clarisse cared about other people than herself and had a positive view on the outside world. Beatty thinks that books will cause the world to end, but Montag thinks that they won 't and can help teach the world many different things. Faber and the Lost Gang both wanted to make people think that books are good again, but had two different ways of doing that.. In the book, Fahrenheit 451, there were three pairs of characters who were very different from each other and represented something or somebody in a society.
The critical flaw in the collective state that Equality capitalizes on to escape lies within its very foundation. Anthem best exemplifies this flaw through Equality’s escape from the Palace of Corrective Detention, as he describes “It was easy to escape the Palace of Corrective Detention. The locks are old on the doors and there are no guards about. There is no reason to have guards, for men have never defied the Councils so far as to escape from whatever place they were ordered to be” (66-67). The Council believes the fallacies it espouses, making it easy for Equality to escape.
