Once again, Eurylochus displays a juxtaposition. He did not follow the others into Circe's home because he knew there was trouble and potentially death awaiting. However, he willingly killed the cattle knowing full-well he and the other crewmen could be punished. His reason was clouded by temptation and
Scout, the main character, was talking with Miss Maudie about Atticus's past and his hunting, Miss Maudie said Atticus was a very big Hunter and then he just stopped hunting. Scout was curious and said “wonder why he never goes huntin’ now….. if your father’s anything, he’s civilized in his heart” (Lee 130). Atticus used to be racist but something changed him potentially. Now he is against it. He used to shoot doves which are these beautiful animals that symbolize equality but he stopped and he only has shot a rabid danger to society dog that symbolizes racism.
In spite of George asking Lennie to stay out of trouble, Lennie got in trouble without knowing. Eventually, George wouldn’t be able to cover for Lennie’s mistakes. If George just kept on moving with Lennie, sooner or later someone could have found Lennie’s well hidden disability. People knowing about Lennie’s disability could create more pain for Lennie because they may have sterilized or killed him for being unuseful to society. Some may say that George made mistakes too.
Mr. Ewell’s wrongdoings lead to the death of Tom Robinson, and later he himself was killed for his unjust actions. The mockingbird was symbolic of Tom’s true, pure heart, and his death was because of nothing but the inequities within society. Mr. Ewell’s sin caused sorrow and horror in Scout’s life, but it also lead to her realization that discrimination was wrong, something that Atticus wished for her to know all along. Further along in the story, Scout’s growth is proved when Atticus suggests sending Boo Radley to trial for killing Bob Ewell. Scout says, “‘Well, it’d be sort of like shootin’ a mockingbird, wouldn’t it?’” (276).
Ince Candy’s dog was Candy’s best friend, George knew how much pain Candy went through when he had to witness his own dog getting killed by somebody other than himself. George knew that he had to kill Lennie himself. The facts that Curley would have killed Lennie if George didn’t, Lennie’s disability was only a burden, and George had to look out for himself all prove that George was not wrong in euthanizing Lennie. These three reasons justify the actions that George had to take. George was not wrong in killing Lennie in the way that George had only good motives and was only looking out for
Poe expresses clearly that Montresor not only wanted Fortunato to suffer but to know why he was suffering in every step of the process. Although this is to lure his victim to his untimely fate, Fortunato goes to his death with much ignorance and thereby joy. Poe’s writing for Fortunato is far more grave than that of the old man. One doesn’t appreciate the death as much because of how deadly of a game he is playing into. From a readers perspective, Fortunato walking down to the cellar is like watching a lamb walk into a wolf den; wholly unsuspecting of their outright fate both are set to be slaughtered from their very arrival.
Odysseus starts to learn the importance of being modest through moments of despair. One can perceive a change in character midway through the journey, during his trip to Helio 's Island. Prior to the trip, the crew was deliberately told not harm Helios’s, cattle, for they will suffer the consequences. However, hunger grew in all their bodies leading them to eat the sun god’s cattle. In despair, Odysseus cries to Zeus explaining how he needs a god to save him from starvation.
If he hadn’t stopped, there could have been a terrible accident. The bathroom bombing incidents are a good reflection of John’s personality because he seems almost proud of his bad deeds. John Conlan is an irresponsible character that cares more about living than he does about other people. I’ve gone through the experience of having friends that are really irresponsible and I’ve had to deal with the consequences of it. It’s better to be friends with someone like John because a friend like John will end up getting you in trouble like he did in The Pigman.
But this is also incorrect because it doesn’t matter how good of a worker he is, if he keeps getting them kicked out of wherever they are. Finally, the opposing side could argue that Aunt Clara told George to take care of Lennie not kill him. This claim is false because Aunt Clara also would not want Lennie to keep on killing people and putting George through a lot of
A special bond that makes people feel a connection to someone right away. Doing service is just that, doing something, like a job. An emotional bond should not take a lot of effort or work. It should come from within. When you serve, you are still separated from the one you are serving because it is a brief moment where you only help someone.
