The other creatures had fear of the Terrible Things, that is why they were never brave enough to stand up and defend themselves or their friends. They did not want it to make a little sacrifice for them or their friends . Instead, they just accepted the circumstances, and they were happy that they were fine, but this not happened to the unfortunate birds that were captured by the Terrible Things. Among all the
If he ever needed help and tried to seek it from the people of Maycomb, it is very unlikely that anyone would help him due to how he was viewed: a troubled man who could be a potential threat to society. When Atticus says that there are many other ways of making people into ghosts, he means that it does not have to be physical intimidation. He is suggesting to Jem that perhaps Boo Radley is being kept under control because Mr. Radley is using some other means. This is a powerful quote because it introduces ideas about how Boo Radley is treated at home. This also introduces Boo Radley as being a mockingbird.
On the night when Atticus faces the lynch mob outside the prison, Jem refuses to leave his side on his father’s orders, since only a child would do so. ”He [Atticus] put the newspaper down very carefully, adjusting the creases with lingering fingers. They were trembling a little. ”Go home, Jem,” he said. ”Take Scout and Dill home.” We were accustomed to prompt, if not cheerful acquiescence to Atticus’s instructions, but from the way he stood Jem was not thinking of budging.
One difference is that Johnny dies a hero, while Dally dies a hoodlum. Dally always tries to break the law, he could never do things the legal way. Ponyboy narrates “Dally didn’t die a hero. He died violent and young and desperate, just like we all knew he would die someday” (154). Before Dally died, he robbed a grocery store, the cops are chasing him when he pulled out an unloaded gun.
Boo is actually scared of the world because he knows it’s cruel and unforgiving at times. Eventually, Boo saves Jem and Scout from getting murdered by Mr.Ewell, and Scout learns that “most people are (nice)...when you finally see them” from Atticus. This means that no one should judge people negatively before they get to know them, as then they’ll grow biases against others. However, this doesn’t often
This occurs with Boo and his father, mainly with his father keeping Boo locked up inside the house instead of having him stay in an asylum, just because Boo’s father did not want any relative to stay at an asylum. However, this claim is not valid because people still abuse others to maintain or receive honor currently. In many Islamic cultures, men abuse and even kill women because women are seen as inferior in their culture, thus giving men a familial honor as head-of-household to maintain. In conclusion, Harper Lee’s famous novel, despite having possibly demeaning language, is indeed relevant to today’s society. It is relevant because Lee grew up with the attitudes depicted.
These are all examples of how Norman Bowker had changed throughout the story. He went from being innocent, or without war on his mind ever, to having nothing else to say to anyone if it didn’t involve war. After he had came back from war, he was not able to keep a job, he was not able to keep a conversation going with anyone because no one knew what he was going through. He was also suffering from PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder) which in the long run, made him feel as if no one would understand him or his story because no one else was in war when he was and no one experienced what he
Carver and Baldwin explore the use of drugs differently in regard to personal communication, artistic expression, and self actualization. In Baldwin’s piece, Sonny does not need heroin for him to communicate. Sonny has had a difficult life since childhood and he is consumed of anger, resentment, and hostility. Sonny is able to communicate to his brother, which is shown in the letter that he sends his brother from jail in the beginning of the short story. Sonny has been in jail for a great amount of time, so we know that there is no way that he had access to drugs.
Since Mr. Radley never came out of the house, frightening rumors spread about him and the children all knew them. They even played games where they reenacted the story that was spread around about him, not realizing how disgraceful it was to the Radleys. Towards the end the book, Scout finally get to meet Boo Radley after Bob Ewell attempted to kill her and Jem. Scout took Mr. Radley home and on the way back she thought, “Atticus was right. One time he said you never really know a man until you stand in his shoes and walk around in them.
It is correct to punish a criminal but death penalty might be taken way too far. For example, killing a murder does not really make sense because an individual is slaughtering the murder because the murderer killed someone but the individual is also killing the murderer. What is different about that? So instead, the punishment that is commonly and usually given to the criminals such as murders, rapists,
