The author uses inner thinking to provide the context/background information, and to stir empathy in the beginning to prove the point. For example, in the text it say, “ Soon the free boys would come tripping
People commonly act out of emotion and not thought. “Unwittingly, like partners in a marriage that has soured, many people are challenged to look beyond their own immediate interests,” states Bernard Golden, Ph.D. An example of person versus self conflict is when Eragon visits Yazuac. While visiting, he suspects people are following him, so he turns into an alleyway. It turned out to be a dead end, and he trapped himself, like a scared rabbit going to the first hole they find. His inexperience gets him into tough situations.
However, not for this boy, his drunken; aggressive dad beats him up with a beer bottle that makes him the one who is unreliable and has the worst influence. These are ironic because the person we admire is actually the “worst of all.” William Shakespeare’s tragedy Othello shows the themes of reality through the characters, and their action, Imagine Dragon’s song “Demons” illustrates themes through lyrics and the music video. Both works illustrate the three themes because people always have a hidden side. They are always jealous of what others have. Also, they lose to their dark side.
Early on it is alluded to that creon is not merely feared but he strikes terror into his subjects. As a sentinel enters Creon's Presence to announce that one of Creon's decrees has been broken he implies that he is in danger rambling “I come, playing a nimble foot… I had many sticking points of thought… For my heart whispered Poor wretch why go to meet your sentence” (Sophocles 10). This implies that the guard is afraid that he will be struck against because he is informing creon of an infraction. It is an almost universal taboo to shoot the messenger and a deep level of contempt is reserved for those who do. Contempt Machiavelli argues is something to be avoided.
At the end of the store, these secrets are divulged. Whenever Amir lets Hassan get rapped by the bully, Assef, readers realize that Hassan isn’t the person portrayed at the beginning of the book. This is especially shown whenever Amir keeps this as a secret for the ongoing years. If he would have tried to help Hassan, then readers would be able to sympathize toward both characters, not just Hasan. The reasoning behind Amir’s innocence in the situation is because he was “scared,” he didn’t want to “confront” Assef.
Albee develops pleasure within the characters through constant emotional gratification from the characters ' sadisitic tendencies and enjoyment derived from others ' pain. These tendencies and actions are inherently destructive for the marital relationship, leading to increased dramatic tension and cruelty as the night progresses. George criticizes Martha for sharing too much information about their relationship with their son: GEORGE. …about the apple of our eye…the sprout…the little bugger…(Spits it out)…our son…and if you start in on this other business, I warn you, Martha, it 's going to make me angry.

The tension in the story is drastically building up, making the readers anxious to think whether the narrator will admit the truth or not. In the Masque of the Red Death, on the other hand, guilt does not really capture Prospero and he reacts insolently to death. A passage from the story depicts how the protagonist is annoyed; “It was then, however, that the Prince Prospero, maddening with rage and the shame of his own momentary cowardice, rushed hurriedly through the six chambers,…“(1842, Poe). Here, the protagonist shows Gothic characteristics of “a distressed character”. This is because the character cannot overcome his stress.
/ ‘Glamis hath murdered sleep’" (2.2.42-42). This has caused Macbeth to become paranoid that the whole house is now aware that he is a murderer. If his actions are exposed, then everything he had done would be for naught and he would suffer great consequences. Even though he knows that the voices could not be real, it arouses much fear for what he has done. This "disorder and moral darkness into which Macbeth [has] plung[ed] himself" (Knights 41) into is still a little unsettling to him.
However, Holden gets upset and starts talking poorly of him once he hears this, and later excuses himself with a lie he made up to leave, showing both his self-defence mechanism and his skepticism towards people he liked. Also, when Holden wakes up to Mr. Antolini patting him on the forehead in the middle of the night, he tells us of similar “perverty” stuff that happened to him multiple times as a child. Therefore, he clearly struggles to trust anyone he both meets and knows, which shows his insecurity and skepticism of others. Another instance of this is Holden’s relationship with D.B. Although Holden says that they were once close, he now considers D.B.
At this part of the story Dave was trying to come tell him that his father had passed away in combat, but he was too afraid to hear him say the words that he didn 't let him and just beat Dave up.

For example, how the parents should be more careful about their children by give them the chance to express themself. Also how the reputation of the parents affect negatively in their children.

Another reason could be that there were children present. One of the mob members says “All right, Mr. Finch, get ‘em outa here” (Lee 204). Some other mob memebrs had similar reactions. My second question is, why does Jem stand up to Atticus? One reason could be he feared for Atticus.
He is also imbued with fear of retribution because he fears being executed for the murder he committed so earnestly that he becomes as a weeping child. [This might present a bit of an inexplicable paradox between being brazenly brutal and yet tremblingly fearful if Stevenson had not introduced the duality of viciousness and fear in the incident with the little girl in the street.] Those who have seen Hyde assert that they feel a deformity to his person or nature though they can 't define a physical cause for it. Hyde inspires a raging feeling in people who have to deal with him for any reason. It 's a point of debate as to whether Stevenson is suggesting by this reaction that a Hyde-like duality lurks just below the surface of everyone 's character or whether he is suggesting that Hyde 's inhumanity inspires humanely protective rage in those who possess humanity.
