As he continues through the darkness of the ship, rusty pipes continue to pass him by until he gets hit by one. Bocigolupi writes, “Dust cascaded into his hair. Despite the filter mask, he started coughing as powder leaked around the poorly sealed edges” (2). As Bacigalupi gives an explicit visual of what happens in the novel, readers are not aware that Nailer symbolizes many children working in shipyards breaking apart ships. Furthermore, Nailer is wearing a mask that was given to him by his father but the mask is damaged and is the only mask his father has.
When Castle cut his shoes to go faster but this only hurt him because his classmate Shamika embarrassed him. “Shamika couldn’t get herself together long enough to even speak, so instead she just pointed at my feet” (Reynolds 80). What Shamika did made Castle so frustrated that he skipped school and made him realize it was a waste of money which was already a problem in his family. Another time shoes played a big role was when Castle stole the “Silver Bullets” from the sports store. When Castle first stole the shoes he thought it was the best thing he has done for his track career but he was punished for it.”A close-up of my
Pete eventually realizes that he wants his sins to be washed away and gets talked into getting baptized. As Pete and Delmar are doing this, Everett is standing nearby watching. The three most important events in this movie were when the three of them escaped, Pete’s cousin turns all of them in, and Pete and Delmar get baptized. At the beginning of “O Brother, Where Art Thou?” It didn’t seem really interesting to me. As the movie went on, I enjoyed it more and more.
Doodle was right behind his brother all of the way so his brothers pride caused him to run faster and away from Doodle to try to push him to see if he could catch to up him. Doodle’s brother was far ahead of him now so he slowed down he began to hear Doodle call out to him saying,“Brother stop help me!” but his pride would not let him turn around and help his brother. When Doodle’s brother made it to the house he started to wait on his brother but he could no longer hear him calling so he ran back to go find him and he found him against a tree dead because his heart had burst. In “Flowers for Algernon” Charlie came to realize that his mother Rose did not really care about him and that all she wanted was him to be “perfect”. Charlie realized that he would never be enough for his mom and family.
When looking at it through my eyes, the purpose was to explain that appearances and self confidence can really drive someone’s actions. The story follows a boy named Alberto who does his best to fit the images of people he sees in magazines, anything from working out constantly, to pushing on his teeth everyday assuming they’ll straighten out. You can tell that Alfonso is very dedicated to his appearance. “Alfonso didn’t want to be the handsomest kid at school, but he was determined to be better-looking than average. The next day he spent his lawn-mowing money on a new shirt, and, with a pocketknife, scooped the moons of dirt from under his fingernails.
One of the positives can be seen earlier in the film. We watch Saroo and his brother Guddu catch trains and buses to get to work. They have also stolen coal from a train that they traded in for milk. It’s clear in the film that they are in the lower class and struggling. They would not have been able to survive without these sources.
Talk to one or two “If it doesn’t CHALLENGE you, it won’t CHANGE you.” In this story, you will see how Stanley has changed. Stanley changes from shy to bold because of how Sachar describes him in the beginning and the end. In the beginning of the novel, Stanley is a very shy kid. He doesn’t want to get embarrassed “When he doesn’t let the boys see him writing his letter.” (Sachar 74). I think this shows great text evidence because he scared to show the boys about his letter.
In the movie the characters and their traits would significantly change due to characterization, they would gain attributes which would contribute to the overall purpose of the movie. Tom helped out Jack with writer’s block by telling him that not every piece of writing requires metaphors. Joost the Dutchman also offered Jack to walk with the other three characters which relieved him. Tom, Joost and Sarah also motivated him while walking the path. “‘Would it be alright if I walk with you for a bit?’ ‘Well, I don’t know about them.’ ‘Oh, okay.
Although the main intention of the film “The Soloist” was to tell the tragic story of a musically talented and smart man named Nathaniel Ayers, the film also succeeded in bringing forth the controversy that is the amount of people with mental illnesses that go untreated and/ or end up living on the streets. Nathaniel was an undoubtedly talented young man when it came to playing the cello, as he was accepted into Julliard, a prestigious institution for the study and exploration of musical abilities. The underlying complication of the film is that we regularly see people with mental illnesses receiving little to no treatment or support from the community, leaving the responsibility to the individuals and their families. Given the complications

At first we noticed Tom’s guilt that made him wonder if his priorities were right, and soon we will notice Tom actually begin to change. Tom is a perfect example of a dynamic character due to the fact that he changes so much. Later on in the story Tom is “sliding on the ledge with a clumsy desperate swiftness” (119). He wanted to get off the roof so bad and he didn’t even care about his work anymore, he just wanted to be safe and get back to his wife, which was now his top priority. So he tried to get to safety as quickly as possible, it was a very desperate attempt.

All of the dogs ran at Vincent which made him scared. Vincent grabbed the ball and screamed “Help Miguel and Danny.” Miguel and Danny went over the fence and shouted “Throw the ball to us.” Vincent threw the ball and ran toward the fence. The dogs were catching up to Vincent. Vincent tried to jump to the fence but Miguel replied”Do not jump because the fence is slippery.” Vincent was so close to the fence but Vincent turn right. Vincent was getting tired, that’s when the dogs caught up.
Sparks of excitement and stress exploded in my body as I opened the door. I took my first step to freedom then sprinted down the stairs almost tripping and falling flat on my face. I ran to nearest train station and hopped onto the back where i curled up in the corner waiting for the long road ahead. I didn’t know where this train was taking me and I didn’t know what I was going to do when I arrived but I knew one thing for sure..I was
You get pushed down a worn wooden uphill path; shoved, kicked, and punched to get to an unknown destination. You look back at your family, but they’re at the bottom of the high incline, they leave you to fend for yourself. You feel every blow as you board a strange abandoned looking roller coaster, you board and suddenly a blind fold covers your eyes and your off before you can get buckled down. You start with a gasp, speeding through the rickety track fast and can’t slow down the rapid travelling cart as you fly up and down, hitting your head and body on each turn of the seemingly never ending track. Your family shouting from below tries to catch everything you drop and tries to help, but they don’t feel the blows, they don’t know the stress of the unknown, they don’t know how to help.
