Clarrise thought for herself and that worried many people. Sooner or later, different scares people.Society has made an effect on every person, it could affect you positively or negatively. Mildred, Montag’s wife, in the book Fahrenheit 451, by Ray Bradbury, is not the world’s best wife. Society has brought her down to this level because the community does not want the civilians to be thinking for themselves. It is as if the generation is being controlled with what they are able to say, or even do.
However Abigail may hold a great deal of authority during the trials, she is not the only character who held authority and used in a bad way. Judge Danforth is another great example of authority leading to hubris in a characters personality. Danforth’s moral are good, however he still tends to make unlawful decisions based off of what the type character he wishes to build. For instance, Reverend Hale requested that Judge Danforth held off on John Proctors hanging because he felt that he was innocent and wanted more time to prove this. Danforth understands Hale’s reasoning, but persist that “there will be no postponement().
The fictional world is full of chaos, as people tend to prefer unstable theories to countless philosophies. Specifically, there is a literary shift from linearity and order to randomness and fragmentation. Consequently, Postmodernist writers understand that their works are subject to interpretation; however, they believe that the flexibility of understanding in texts is the basis for the development of innovative ideas in society. Moreover, Kurt Dinan writes in a nonlinear, flexible fashion by writing with a component of Mystery. Subsequently, the reader can make different predictions on what will occur throughout Don’t Get Caught, and the ability to predict and analyze uniquely is one of the principal ideals of Postmodernist literature.
Another conclusion readers can draw from Thomas Foster’s How to Read Literature Like a Professor: a Lively and Entertaining Guide to Reading Between the Line, is in his chapter “More than It’s Gonna Hurt You”. Although, Foster doesn’t use any new vocabulary he does introduce a new idea about the importance and depth in violence. As well as the fact that violence always has a deeper meaning than just a brutal encounter. “Violence is one of the most personal and even intimate acts between human beings, but it can also be cultural or societal in its implications” (Foster 88). In summary the use of death can be protective or even an act for love as twisted as it sounds.
He recognizes that the duty of law enforcement is to not only enforce the law for others but it is also to abide by the laws they are there to enforce. Furthermore, He also believes that the police force are harming the citizens by not obeying the law. “He[Mr. Chiu] has trusted that those with authority will operate morally and will honor, even revere, the truth, values he upholds as well.” (general 239) Those in authority are corrupt and Mr.Chiu attempts to use logic and reason with them. He is still a law abiding citizen but his frustration causes him to grow impatient with those in charge. “ Now you can admit you are guilty,” the chief said[...] “We won’t punish you severely provided you write a self-criticism[...] Mr. Chiu cried.
In life, doing what your enemy wants only encourages them to pay more attention to you, whether it is by violence or speaking down about you. Sometimes staying silent can save one’s abuse; however, sometimes it can also be the opposite way around. Although there are times when silence leads to violence in the graphic novel Maus by Art Spiegelman and the memoir Night by Elie Wiesel, there are also instances in which speaking out perpetuates violence. In Night, silence perpetuates violence at first.
I believe that Nancy Farmer really showed that not everything goes the way you want and that it’s ok to be different even though some people would treat you poorly. I believe that something bad to go to something good shows life. It can be the opposite but it’s how life is. I believe that this novel shows how life is, a definition of life. Life can be hard but you learn to get through it no matter
This is not a way to fight against establish society as it may seem, but a way to reaffirm the necessity of rules and customs in maintaining social order in the minds of the younger generations who may hear these stories. In this way the trickster is a cautionary morality tale and an instructive tool warning them not to act like him. The most central trait to the trickster figure portrayed, besides these, is the contrary use of his creative and destructive powers which speaks to the very message of ambiguity and liminality within the tradition of trickster mythology. Beyond the combination of opposite concepts, the trickster represents the chaos of all contrasting elements of the world which these tales attempt to
However, only one succeeds, while the other accepts to conform. Both characters are similar in their desire to rebel against the masses, and in doing so, risk their lives to alter orthodox perceptions. Winston Smith and Guy Montag are alike in their characterization, but are dissimilar in their achievements. Conformity against individuality is a major theme in both books, and the protagonists
