Rips’ wife was “continually dinning in his ears about his idleness, his carelessness, and the ruin he was bringing on his family” (473). I interpret his carelessness as he gave up on his own property, but he can still find peace in helping others. I think we could say he was nonconforming and he did what he believed is right. He came to the conclusion that there is no use in maintaining his farm so he would help others; that way he can still be helping society and making himself feel better. He was not like anyone else; most people don’t help others instead of doing their own chores.

His dad must’ve told him about these things, since Pap has made many mistakes in life he has a good side to himself. Pap must’ve left his education for some reason Mark Twain doesn’t explain. So Pap doesn’t seem like a horrible person after all by teaching Huck that kindness to show other
Dimmesdale’s True Colors Reverend Arthur Dimmesdale, also the father of Hester’s child, showed prominent parts of his character throughout the story. The first trait the reader becomes aware of is Dimmesdale’s cowardice. He has no intentions of revealing his sin to the public, due to how highly he is seen in the community’s eyes. Remorse, or guilt, is another term that can be associated with Dimmesdale, growing increasingly more prominent as the novel goes on. Cowardice, a lacking of bravery when facing danger, was a trait that Dimmesdale carried.
Without communication it makes it hard for everyone else to understand how he feels. Adding to the stress with his arrogant ways, by not communicating, but instead leaving. The disappearance of Chaka affected his entire family, despite his apathetic ways he stated “The day I left I believed that I was making the best decision I could.
Jewel did not want to go; it was Darl who pushed for it. We can see this through the dialogue between Darl and Jewel. Jewel can be seen as not being able to accept the fact that Addie is close to dying, he says “‘Ma aint that sick’”. Jewel can be seen as getting angry at the fact that Darl had already accepted the fact that Addie was dead and that he still cannot accept this fact. Throught the scene, Jewel’s dialogue is largely angry and directed at his family, as he says things like “‘Shut up, Darl’” and “‘Shut your
This is very different from Hawthorne’s story, Minister Hooper veiled his face though no one asked him to and that is what scared his congregation. For Hooper the veil embodied sin itself, upon exposing it, he was claiming himself guilty, but his intention was for all of his congregation to wear one, so that they too could understand the truth; judgement will come for everyone because we are all sinners. This cost Hooper dearly, he felt isolated he lost friends, Elizabeth, and the rapport he had with the children. He became lonely, a recluse, fearful of his own image. Even though he suffered in self- loathing it could also be said that he fell into the sin of pride because he could have ended his suffering and Elizabeth’s had he removed in private the veil in her presence.
After the affair he felt terrible and guilty. He enjoyed it for a while; but once it was over, he was done. He could no longer betray his wife in such a nasty way. He knew that what he did was wrong and it bothered him enough to confess. He confessed figuring that it would help his wife’s situation.
Kafka originally wrote the family as being morally disconnected and disengaged with normal family feelings. They were so disengaged they did not even see anything wrong with the way they are treating Greor. His family, the people that he loved unconditionally, were the ones abused him. His father would hit him hard with newspapers and a walking stick, even causing injuries. Any type of bullies, whether an adult or child can dehumanize others through abusive measures.
I believe the author wants us to realize how helpless he was in the situation and how he couldn't help out but could only watch. From a reader's point of view it is almost like we are there reliving these devastating moments with the author. Most of all the reader wants us to realize no matter how much he wanted to help or prevent these other soldiers from suffering he couldn't. He doesn't want to be looked at as neglectful or as a bed person but he wants us to know he feel terrible and these tragedies are something he thinks about often. 4- ‘DEATH BE NOT PROUD” In the poem “ Death Be Not Proud” the author wants us to view death as something that is not bad but almost like a reward to eternal or after life .
My life thus far has been good, and I wouldn’t claim it to be otherwise, I can only express my sorrow for his poor soul in words, and maybe that is not enough... but still I offer my condolences. Again, I must emphasize that this is not the only reason for Chris having left, but I still believe that it was, in some manner, one of the main points towards this. Chris had wanted to cut all ties off from his family, leave his past where it belongs, and prove he could make it on his own. Most would still find the way he went about his travels to be foolish and naive, under-prepared, and his death well deserved. Well I’m here now to encourage a different way of thinking.
Had Rick apologized for his brash and insensitive remarks and demands, the damage that he had done to his host’s pride would have partially been undone and his answer may have been different. Yet this would not last, Rick has proved himself time and time again that he is toxic to the survival of anyone around him. The acceptance of Glenn proves that Hershell is capable of compassion and is lenient in his demands. If Rick had appealed to him in a way that come across as nonthreatening instead of unleashing his emotional and hormonally unstable wife on an already grief stricken man, he seals his fate on the farm and ensures that he is no longer, by any means welcome there. The respect that should have been shown to Hershell is completely absent throughout the group’s stay.
Brady did not relate to the therapist one bit, and he wanted to talk to someone who has seen what he has seen. Brady wanted someone to relate to and able to share what was going on in his mind. According to Mr. Dunham, the VA did not really care a whole lot. They kind of pushed his case aside and preceded to the next. That needs to be addressed and because it is heart wrenching to see the numbers and to see the deaths because of the fatal
Can we please sit down and find a way for us to resolve our problems?”. The same goes for Matt after he said, “I HATE IT HERE.” He could use an apology to de-escalate the situation by saying that he was also very sorry and should not have said that because it may have hurt his mom’s feelings. They both could also have asked what they needed from each other to make things “right again”. Such as, Melissa: “ I realize I was wrong to bring your girlfriend into our conflict. I also realize that I should not be yelling at you.
Hayward were almost as notable as those he did use. For although he heavily leaned on the usage of avoidance of responsibility and corrective action in his speech, he never actually denied that BP had caused it; he did however, heavily infer that they were not solely responsible. He also categorically avoided any use of mortification, while still employing its semblance in personal terms when he stated that he was “deeply sorry” about the spill (Hayward 2005). BP’s largest failure in restoring their image was not taking the blame for the spill immediately. The public turned on them almost unanimously, but would have had been less likely to attack and ostracize BP if they had simply accepted the blame that the world had already laid on their shoulders as their own.
