The leading cause of their difference in future was a result of outside influences. From the environment to their mothers, it was the little differences that left a significant impact on the two lives and their choices. Ultimately, if it had not been for Joy Moore’s decision to send Author Wes Moore to military school then perhaps Author Wes would not have changed his behavior and would’ve ended up in a similar position as Prisoner Wes. Wes had a choice; and luckily for him it had been the correct one. And, like Wes, we all have multiple choices, but don’t we decide our choices based on our circumstances?
Later when Miss Watson tries to teach Huck about Heaven, he decides against trying to go there, "...she was going to live so as to go the good place. Well, I couldn 't see no advantage in going where she was going, so I made up my mind I wouldn 't try for it." The comments made by Huck clearly show Miss Watson as a hypocrite, scolding Huck for wanting to smoke and then using snuff herself and firmly believing that she would be in heaven. When Huck encounters the Grangerfords and Shepardsons, Huck describes Colonel Grangerford as, "...a gentleman, you see. He was a gentleman all over; and so was his family.
Like Holden, she also comes from a toxic family environment, keeping her kings in the back is a sign of possible sexual abuse from her alcoholic stepfather. Her ability to save Holden is recognized when he states metaphorically, “I don’t want you to get the idea she was a goddam icicle or something” (79). Going along with the motif of vision, Holden is unable to see that an icicle girl, who is still moving and not a frozen fish, is exactly what he needs. Nevertheless, his continued practice of never explaining himself is symbolized when he pretends he has a bullet in his guts and keeps his hand under his jacket “to keep the blood from dripping” (150). He wants to call Jane, but realizes he isn’t “much in the mood” for it (150).
The action of her spitting out Phil’s candy is symbolic of her final rejection of Phil. This shows she had enough of his mistreatment of herself and other people that she cannot stand the person he’s turning to. The chapter emphasizes the reversal of their personalities when he has spent the entire play not speaking to her and she’s usually the person who plays the narrative. At this point, Leah creates a watershed in her action helps intensify the tension of the plot, also accentuates her determinant of leaving Phil and the gang. Dennis Kelly uses pathetic fallacy in the setting of Leah’s monologue to describe how open she is as a person.
Walls was offered by her father to have sex with one of his friends in return for money. Luckily, she was able to avoid having sex with the man, stating that she is “not that kind of girl.” Another instance of sexual abuse in The Glass Castle is when Walls’ Uncle Stanley touches Jeannette inappropriately. After telling her mother of this incident, Jeannette receives no sympathy. In fact, Rose Mary ends up giving her sorrow to Stanley, claiming that she feels bad for him because he is “lonely.” Rose Mary also states that sexual assault is a “crime of perception.” This dismissal and victim-shaming is prevalent in today’s world. Unfortunately, even our youth experience what Jeannette Walls experienced.
It was his responsibility. Candy shied away from what was the right thing to do. Candy was very upset about not shooting his own dog and letting someone do it for him. Candy later told George about his regretted decision and that he should have shot his own dog. So he encouraged George to not make the same mistake he did.
My mother soon kicked me out because she didn’t condone pity parties. At that point it was no longer the school system’s fault that I failed, nor was it my parents, nor was it my friends, it was mine. After I was sick of playing victim to the situations I’ve caused I made it mandatory for me to finally get my
Even when she forced a kiss upon him, he physically pushed her away and left. This shows how John is a crucible because he is resisting the heat of his past mistakes. Even when put on the spot, he remains intact and pushes her away. Another example of John Proctor acting as a crucible is when he is accused of witchery. When he is accused by a girl named Mary Warren, he does not confess.
She does not even try to stand up for herself or tell Atticus that Mr. Ewell is abusive when he drinks. She is terrified by her father because he has more strength than her. What also hurts her is that she cannot vote, she has no job, and she has to uphold the southern girl outlook. Document B, box two, is says “...She reached up an’ kissed me ‘side of th’face… Tom Robinson shut eyes tight. ‘He says you goddamn whore, I’ll kill ya.” ("DBQ Is Mayella Powerful?"
