This shows that John is a merciful being and desires forgiveness from his wife and God, therefore demonstrating traits of a good man. Furthermore, John has a heated argument with his wife, due to his encounter with Abigail, alone. Although, he thinks his wife will doubt him, she states on the contrary, “I do not judge you. The magistrate sits in your heart that judges you. I never thought you but a good man, John - only somewhat bewildered” (55).
Then the Virgin tells Antonio that she will also only forgive both and not only Narciso (Anaya 173). Antonio never bothered to see Tenorio in a good light and was thus always critical of him. His good half wanted Narciso forgiven but overlooked that in being critical of Tenorio he forgot that wishing forgiveness of all means all the people. In an earlier part of the book, Antonio says “It is not easy to forgive men like Tenorio” (Anaya 138). Antonio was once again being critical just showing that he is also human and he is like the God and Virgin in that he is composed of a caring and critical personality.
Monsieur Tepan is portrayed as an ignorant and superficial person as he does not concern anything about wartime. Madame Tepan portrays as a caring mother as she always cares and concerns about her family. In addition, Zapo and Zepo portray similarly as a huge loss of young men as a result of war because they are sent to the war without any good reason. Moreover, this playwright was written during the wartime ,so the influence of war reflects people’ value. However, those mentioned characters above are absurdity as their lives are meaningless and hopeless because what the characters do, it has no convincing reason and purpose.
‘That’s a compliment,’ explained Jem. ‘He spends his time doin‘ things that wouldn’t get done if nobody did ’em”(Lee 117). In other words, Jem is saying that the cartoon of Atticus in the newspaper is a compliment for Atticus because Atticus works assiduously and does not let anything get in his way. The girls waving at Atticus are trying to distract him, yet Atticus’ attention does not waver from the task he is trying to complete, meaning that the girls are failing to distract him. If no one attempted to do the tasks properly, they would not get
This means she wanted to break free of her addiction before she died. Instead of thinking of and treating African Americans as inferior, Mr. Raymond accepted them, causing him to be shunned by society. Even children had a disinclination towards him; their parents taught them that Dolphus's way of life was wrong. In the novel, Scout originally described him as "evil" (Lee 267). The text also states, "I didn't think Atticus would like it if we became friendly with Mr. Raymond, and I knew Aunt Alexandra wouldn't" (Lee 267).
She gets really excited and even invites him to stay over for dinner (372). Hulga fails to understand that he is lying and only wants her to notice him.

She did not have much hope left anyways for her life because she annoyed the misfit with her ugly and selfish ways. In another quote the grandmother implies that the misfit is a good man by stating, "Yes it's a beautiful day," said the grandmother. "Listen, " she said, "You shouldn't call yourself the misfit because I know you're a good man at heart. I can just look at you and tell" (421). The grandmother doesn't know the misfit from Adam, yet she already gave him a persona that he has to match.

On the other hand, Katniss is suspicious of his behavior, and believes he is just pretending to be nice, but she realizes that he is just being himself. She states in the book, “Peeta Mellark, on the other hand, has obviously been crying and interestingly enough does not seem to be trying to cover it up. I immediately wonder if this will be his strategy in the Games. To appear weak and frightened, to reassure the other tributes that he is no competition at all, and then come out fighting.” (Collins, 2008, p.49) He is a very caring person because he doesn’t want Katniss to sacrifice herself for him. Instead, he is helpful, and helps her, for example by helping her get away from the enemies.
He berates his wife for keeping such a cold and judgeful disposition, as if he is free of qualms. In fact, John was flirting with Abigail in the first act. John reprimands Elizabeth for playing God, when he does the same to the community. What makes John’s vicious and uncalled for assertion even more distasteful, is the fact that he says he should have “roared” Elizabeth down when she first accused him. Again, John seems to forget that he is the transgressor.

To Kill a Mockingbird is one of the best-loved stories of all time that tells of the ways of the Old South, but in a deeper sense it portrays a town recluse (Boo Radley) that quietly makes friends with two of the town 's children and saves them after they are attacked by Bob Ewell. The reader will notice several minuscule differences between it and the movie, one thing remains the same though, the relationship that the kids share with Boo and the way it grows and how they bond.The makers of the film To Kill a Mockingbird modeled by the novel written by Harper Lee were faithful in regards to the way the children build their relationship with Boo, how Bob Ewell becomes angry at Atticus, and how Boo Radley is able to save the children from Bob Ewell by stabbing him in the chest with a steak
‘She only married you because I was poor and she was tired of waiting for me. It was a terrible mistake, but in her heart she never loved anyone except me!’” (Fitzgerald 130). Gatsby continues to use words that convey possession. He expresses that Daisy “never loved” her husband Tom as if Gatsby knows this for certain. Gatsby never asks Daisy how she feels about this; he feels compelled to speak on her behalf because he is just so certain of her feelings towards him.
One response, from the newspaper writer/editor, Mr. Underwood, highlights what some of the few progressive residents stand for, all with some underlying symbolism. “He likened Tom’s death to the senseless slaughter of songbirds by hunters and children” (Lee 323). In this quote readers see how Lee uses a very minor character, who is white, to represent the feelings of some of Maycomb’s residents. Additionally, this is relevant to the theme because few people would be surprised if Tom Robinson’s death wasn’t even mentioned, and yet Mr. Underwood subjects his readers to a most poetic interpretation of Tom Robinson’s death, which he believes shouldn’t have happened. Additionally, one can assume that Mr. Underwood likens Tom’s death to the death of a mockingbird (a songbird) as it is stated earlier in the book, by Ms. Maudie, that “ …’they don’t do one thing but sing their hearts out for us.
