8.Explain the irony in Frankenstein's actions Even after Victor’s mother dies, and she wished for him to take care of the family and to wed Elizabeth, Victor spends his time in science and neglects his family, shutting off contact for 2 years and not returning home until 6 years later. A bigger show of irony is Frankenstein’s constant return to isolation. Even after becoming somewhat mentally insane, Henry restores his friend and rehabilitates him back to his previous health. Although not fully recovered, Victor returns home and decides not to tell his family, but rather go back into nature for more isolation, He did not learn from his actions and after the monster pays him a visit, Frankenstein continues his mission in isolation. (Takes place in chapter 9 and 10) 9.What does the death of William symbolize?

C.S. Lewis once quoted, “A proud man is always looking down on things and people; and of, course, as long as you are looking down, you cannot see something that is above you.” This exemplifies the genuine idea of what pride can do to a soul. Many never fully acknowledge the sincere people who sit around them, and the beauties these individuals hold. Similarly, in Hurst’s, “The Scarlet Ibis,” Doodle’s older brother, the narrator, is driven to push Doodle to succeed in various activities, because he cannot seem to see Doodle’s “inner beauty.” As the thought of making Doodle the best he can be, and displaying his “inner beauty,” eventually leads to a horrific tragedy. To clarify, in “The Scarlet Ibis,” the narrator is introduced as a conceited,
The narrator was cruel and made him touch it, with major accomplishments the final quote “Don’t leave me brother, don’t leave me.” (Hurst) [Doodle] Fully out of self pride, the narrator was fed up with his brother, he hated hauling him around all day and he truthfully in the narrator’s eyes “A burden in many ways” (Hurst) The day that the narrator started teaching his brother to walk, was a memorable one, he acted as if it was out of love, but it was truthfully out of self pride. It was grueling to force Doodle’s body to move correctly and not falter, The narrator acted as if it was to help his brother, and have a better outcome for the world, but he truthfully did it out of pride because he didn’t want the humiliation of an invalid brother. Doodle learned out to walk, but the narrator wouldn’t stop there. He forced his brother to do more grueling tasks. “Do you want to be different from everyone else when you start school?” (Hurst) [Narrator] “Does it make a different?” (Hurst) [Doodle] The narrator forced his brother into something that they couldn’t find a way out, “The net of expectations” (Hurst) The tasks were too hard for little Doodle, he became
Callum Hunt is a crippled 12-year old living in North Carolina with his father; being crippled he is a main target of bullying. He was bullied once and somehow caused a small earthquake. His father explains to him that he has magic; a sickness, which he must soon take a test for. He must fail this test or else he would be living underground for the rest of his life. He tries his best to fail the test, but his instructor, the same instructor who taught his parents would not allow him to fail.
He wasn’t expected to live very long, but did, so after two months they decided to name him. Doodle wasn’t even able to walk until he was about five when Brother taught him, but only taught him because he was embarrassed to have a brother who couldn’t walk. Later on, Brother tries to teach Doodle to do other things like swim, and one day after practicing swimming there was a bad lightning storm. During
Jim is incredibly thankful for Huck doing this and thanks Huck with all of his energy. Kuusisto would have wished to have been someone’s hero. Kuusisto would have wished for a reliable friend, but reading about someone similar to himself saving someone from slavery would be inspiring for Kuusisto. Kuusisto would have believed that he could save someone fro, torture because Huck, an outsider, did. Huck being a hero would be empowering
Doug doesn’t have any friends so he pranks people for enjoyment and keeps to himself. Doug most likely gets this attitude from his family, especially his brother, “There was Doug Swieteck’s brother, for one, who was already shaving and had been to three police stations in two states and who once spent a night in jail.”(11). His family has a bad reputation and he is probably just rolling along because a lot of people most likely expect him to be like his family. The middle of the story is when Doug starts to make friends and to not be the bad guy as much. He really starts his friendship with Holling and Danny off, by showing his personality when he is talking about Mickey Mantle (pro baseball player) and he tells them, “He had a batting average of 245 this year,”(79).
