On the other side, Cherry characterized the greasers to be too emotional which led them to antagonize the Socs and causing conflicts. Throughout the book, the theme rich vs poor reflected the Socs and greasers. As the conflict continues, it slowly came to an end when the Socs became more humanized by the death of Bob. As a gang, the greasers were always terrorized by the Socs which created many conflicts. For instance, Socs
Tybalt does not see things peaceful like Benvolio. He prefers violence over peace and pretends to be judge, jury, and executioner for the Capulets. Tybalt’s pride in his name causes much violence and the deaths of many characters. The houses’ pride in their names affects everyone around them but they are too caught up in their own feud to care. An example of the effect the feud has on others is Mercutio.
Power inspires greed,jealousy, and hatred. It corrupts the minds of people whether they are rich, young, poor, or old. It can even make people use violence as a means to attain it. In “The Big Sleep” Carmen Sternwood is characterized as powerless, needy, and impotent however, she resorts to murder in order to compensate for her weakness. Her violent actions are contrary to her personality when she isn’t thirsty for power.
Since he is drinking and talking to Mr. Beeker while his gang is getting drunk and doing dumb things they shouldn’t be doing in a place that isn’t theirs. “Simpson pulled sternly at his drink, and Bleeker had the impression that Simpson was repressing, openly, and with pride, a vast sparkling ecstasy” (Rooney 334). The effect of what Simpson was doing made him lose control of his gang because he was drinking and doing drugs. His gang was out of control they were drinking a lot and just staring at the girls and touching them because they were scared to talk to them. “In the final analysis, we show evidence to support our claim that the contemporary biker image is one that was born of grassroots rebellion, amplified by the media, sanctioned by the government, … as it was in riding” (Austin, Gagne, and Orend 944).
Daisy wasn’t the only one guilty of cheating under the influence, Tom was one of the worst cases. In a drunk whiskey stupor, Tom deliberately cheated on his wife with Myrtle and even became abusive towards her. Tom punched his mistress openly in front of company because alcohol inhibited his morals to think it was ok to hit a women, which is never ok in any
“I’m the most terrific liar you ever saw in your life.” This is a contradiction in Holden’s behavior throughout the story. Holden dislikes when people lie to him. But Holden himself lies to people all the time. Another example of Holden being hypocritical is in chapter one when he criticizes his brother D.B. for earning lots of money in Hollywood by being a prostitute.
Bob ewell based on evidence was abused and had a drunk father all the time. Due to his father's abuse, he had taken that trait from his father. The people of Maycomb think that bob does what he does for the joy of it but not because he was born into it. Due to this the people do not treat bob with respect like everyone else but they treat him negligently. So then the cycle continues he was born to treat people racistly and badly like the way he was treated.
they were drowning you, pony they might have killed you and they had a blade…”.This proves my thesis because since bob was the leader from the socials he was the main target because bob beat up Johnny and he wanted revenge and Socs where their main rival and their conflict.In colclusion S.E Hinton writes that there's always a conflict with socials that they never get along because of their social status and she also wrote that johnny was jumped by t=bob and he kills bob because of
Bill and Sam were not prepared or committed to their situation which led to awkward or hysterical situations. “I…….. of all nerve’ but i looked at bill who had the most dumb look on any animal. ‘One more night and he’ll drive me crazy.’” The irony of the kidnappers having to pay the ransom amuses the readers. ‘I……. of all nerve.” Shows how appalled Sam was about how the situation had turned from bad to worse.
Firstly, the stereotype that people who do bad things are supposedly evil and scary is shown through the characters, Tom Robinson and Boo Radley. Tom Robinson is seen as an evil and scary person because he is accused for raping and assaulting Mayella Ewell. Tom Robinson is hated by a majority of the white people in Maycomb except for a white lawyer who is ready to stand up for someone who is innocent. Later on in the novel, Tom Robinson ends up committing suicide himself because he did not want to be put in prison for something he did not do.
Many people would point fingers at the Greasers, saying that it 's their fault that the Socs’ are resentful and full of hate towards them. The Greasers did steal their girlfriends after all! However, people are not owned, and it is completely up to Cherry and Marcia, who they want to hang out with, and it 's not up to Bob and Randy, their boyfriends. “A little? You call reeling and passing out in the streets 'a little '?
The sons of Liberty were very violent people nobody could argue otherwise, and most was for their own profit and gain. They were very fanatic and dangerous. My reasoning be that they would treat others with no care or regard for their well being. A lot of the things the Sons of Liberty did were very cruel and mostly unnecessary, for example tarring and feathering people was immoral. Could you imagine the pain and burning of having melted tar poured on your entire body then the worst part pulling off the tar as it takes the skin with it.
Lennie is often called stupid, and the bunkers always picked on him because he was mentally ill. George would often prank him or make fun of him. At a point in the book, Culey gets very physical with Lennie, and starts punching him in the face. Although blacks were treated differently and didn 't have equal rights; the whites expected a lot from the
Unfortunately, one of the side effects of viewership is a complete misunderstanding of reality and this lead to the murder of two innocent Hispanic people. As with an addiction the more you are told to stop, the more you are drawn in. Because of viewership, Americans have essentially become “chained to their image-displacement machines like lab animals to dispensers of morphine” (Nelson 308). All over America, there is a demand for power
