However, people fear showing their unique characteristics because they do not want to deviate from the norms of society. Clarisse and Mildred exemplify the effects of conformity. Clarisse’s curiosity and awareness of the world demonstrates the benefits of not conforming to a society that hides the truth from its citizens. Mildred’s ignorance and reliance on technological gadgets is just to cover the realities of her meaningless life. Clarisse’s death represents the intolerance of nonconformity.
The loss of innocence does not limit to the permanent loss of an innate human quality, however; it can also be a physical loss. Tom Robinson is forced to give up on his innocence, but unlike Jean-Louise, he does not manage to adapt to the cruelty of the world and refuses to accept it, naively believing that if he escape it and leave it behind, it will turn untrue. Similarly to Boo Radley, the burden of the reality is too heavy for the characters to carry and they get crushed under its weight. Tom and Arthur embody the nature of innocence, which refuses to let go until the very last moment and is therefore, either murdered or forcefully kept hidden from the public eye. It is from those characters the reader learns that innocence is precious and fragile
On the other hand, Antigone only stands up to her uncle, the king, because she wants to bury and pay her respects to her dead brother, who rebelled against the city. The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn and “Antigone” share a common theme of refusing to conform to society; however, Huck denies all of society, while Antigone only betrays the king. One similarity between the two characters is they both do what they believe is right, no matter the consequences or repercussions. Huck runs away from the widow and his father, and basically rejects all of society because he wants his freedom. In these actions, Huck demonstrates that he will follow his heart, even though his actions could result in danger and chaos.
Then, they go on a journey of self realization to improve their insight and morals. This makes Roark an unrealistic man because he starts out with that self realization, he doesn't need to have some sort of epiphany to find his morals.Throughout The Fountainhead, one main theme is Howard Roark’s exceptional moral and practical qualities. But these exceptional qualities are not something he gains throughout the book, these qualities were already present. His lack of flawed character causes him to seem surreal. A man does not realistically have perfect morals and intelligence, no one is that pure.
Through this autobiography written by Clare, she makes full confessions but distances herself from these crimes throughout the novel. She battles with her conscience over her part in their deaths as she “let slip” to key anti-apartheid about their whereabouts. She obsesses over her guilt so much so that her conscience manifests itself into recurring nightmares, insomnia and the appearance of Nora’s ghost. Her autobiography, Absolution, is her means of “self-exorcism” of her guilty demons. Through this, Clare not only struggles with her guilt but also her motivations in her sister’s betrayal.
“The queen, my lord, is dead… she should have died hereafter” (5.5.20). Lady Macbeth had too much guilt to deal with which is why she needed to be in peace. Blood changed Lady Macbeth and overwhelmed her with guilt. Macbeth and Lady Macbeth both changed throughout the play. Macbeth being innocent in the beggining, changed to evil, and Lady Macbeth, who was evil in the beginning, wanted to be good in the end.
Hunter Wolff Miss H LA Is a person you just meet worth taking your life away, and is person from and family that your family despise worth being with. These are the type of questions you would have to ask yourself if you were in Romeo and Juliet's shoes. Mainly I believe that the biggest reason Romeo and Juliet did not live was because of themselves. When they knew that they shouldn't be together they should have just moved on and live out there lives instead of getting all dramatic and going to the lengths of killing themselves. Though I do not believe this is the only reason that resulted in their death.
The Chrysalids show this in multiple examples like Harriet and her child’s birth and Anne and her undying love for Alan. In the novel, if you don’t have hope it means that you have no belief or trust in your abilities to achieve your dreams and could lead to sadness. For example when Anne was very disappointed and when The Group didn’t accept the planning of her marriage to Alan because he was a “norm” and reported Sophie to the authorities this showed what the loss of hope can cause (Wyndham 93,94). The cause of the hope loss could even cause death in some cases like Harriet. For example when Harriet killed herself in the river because her third child was unable to be certified due to its blasphemies and didn’t believe in her future life in the Fringes this portrayed that when you lose hope it could lead to death (Wyndham 69,70).
The main theme of this story was love affair. However, she would seem to die for other reasons other than her love. Therefore, I assumed that she committed a suicide with complicated and mixed situation of three main relationships, love, friendship, and the master –slave relationship. Also, these relationships were different from what we think of today, especially the ---- love and the ----- environment. This paper
Jordan lives independently and is in control of her life. She does what she wants and is not concerned about other people’s opinions. Jordan also is the complete opposite of women like Daisy because she does not like “being at a disadvantage” which means she wants to be the dominant one and have control over herself(58). Jordan also has “demands of her...body” which hints that Jordan is not the purest woman(58)). She does not care about chastity and the old ways, and instead she embraces the new age and creates her own rules.
