It is a sin to think words no others think and to put them down upon a paper no others are to see.” (Book 17) He has sinned by writing in his own personal journal and has gone out on his own to find a tunnel in which he rediscovers electricity. This is a sin, for it is wrong to be alone or to think alone. “In the process, he realizes the dangers of collectivism” (Jill). Equality-72521 knows that this collectivism is making matters worse. One of Rand’s quotes, “Don’t hesitate to sacrifice” (Ayn), is very well shown by Equality 7-2521.
Victor 's excitement and thirst for knowledge does not intend to bring negativity to the world. When Victor was first creating the monster, he did not know what was to come from his studies; he just wanted to be able to prove that life could be restored through an inanimate object. In addition, the monster is the one to leave Victor 's apartment on his own and because of this he developes his own state of mind. The monster 's pessimistic way of thinking and manslaughter behaviours are not Victor 's responsibility because of the fact that Victor is his creator. Victor did not give birth to the monster and give him the intuition to kill but instead he gives him the beautiful girft of life.
He committed adultery and didn’t attend church often. Cheating on his wife is a very immoral thing to do, but it doesn’t warrant death. By modern standards it would just mean the end of the relationship. Not attending church wouldn’t even be an issue by modern standards. Of course the play took place during puritan times, but it was written in the 1900s, so the typical people who would have watched it wouldn’t have considered them sins punishable by death.
In the novel, In Cold Blood, Truman Capote chose his words in a subjective manner. Capote inaccurately described many characters in his novel. He based his writing on his feelings and emotions rather than facts and evidence. Capote characterized Richard Hickock, Perry Smith, and Bonnie Clutter falsely. Capote described Richard Hickock as a bloodthirsty, violent person yet he did not actually kill any of the Clutters.
No audience would ever know our story” (Justice). This quote expertly conveys the feelings of many people in the Great Depression. No one wanted to complain about their troubles, because everyone had the same or worse problems. Justice’s view is very intriguing because of his being an upperclassman. He did not have to deal with as many hardships as other families and people had to, so his perspective as an onlooker looking on people struggle is the same view that people in the present have now.
It can be quite easy to make assumptions about one’s character upon first glance or first encounter, but often these first assumptions are not a direct representation of a person’s true disposition. In the short story, “The Diary of a Madman” by Guy de Maupassant, an esteemed magistrate is being remembered for the model citizen he was, having lived a life that no one could subject to criticism. However, a notary uncovered his diary in a drawer in his home, in which he entailed his tendencies and cravings for murder that no one had expected of him. Within this text, the author uses the character of the magistrate to convey the theme that one’s true character cannot be decided from external appearance or actions. From the beginning of the text, it is made evident that this man was revered as the most well-respected judge in all of France.
John Steinbeck wrote ‘Of Mice and Men’ using various the language and structure techniques to present ideas about the good and bad in people with minimal narration over the entire novel rather than Steinbeck presenting his opinions about each character. Instead, the author written the novel without personal commentary or much narrative insight; he actually certainly not tell us, the reader, what the character thinks or their mind and how they feel all the time more precisely he exposes the characters through their actions and speech.
Kafka was the reason for his failed relationships, and he was aware of this, and just like Kafka, Gregory never attempted to have relationships, even when he had time he never liked going out and meeting new people, so why was he trying to save the picture of a woman he did not even know instead of his writing desk, something that had true meaning and sentiment to him, “they were now loosening the writing desk which was fixed tight to the floor, the desk on which he, as a business student, a school student, indeed even as an elementary school student, had written out his assignments” (Kafka). Kafka once said that “a man without a woman is no person” (Kafka), this means that Kafka believed that love did matter, and having love and feelings was what it meant to be a person. He had previously mentioned how he wanted to be successful at marriage just like his father was. In this case, Gregory was no longer a person, but an insect, which is why Kafka felt like he needed Gregory to save the picture of the woman. Saving the picture was meant to give both Gregory and Kafka himself a sense a reassurance.
Having seen how Javert has served legally, attempted the best he could while under the government’s thumb, and even how he tried to stop Valjean under the false interpretation of what he stood for, we can see that Javert is in no way a villain. In fact, Les Miserable’s true villains are the horrible Thenardiers, as well as the corrupt government of the time. Both Valjean and Javert are stuck in a miscommunication loop of what is good and evil. Javert is not a villain in the novel, but rather a warning. Although all may seem grim, his silence did not solve anything around him.
What did you think about Victor? To me, Victor was a stupid person. He did whatever he wanted, but he didn’t think about what will happen later in the future. The monster was created by Victor is very lonely because of Victor. He created the monster and he had the responsibility to take care of the monster.
