No one attempts to control this, not even Mrs Canmore who only warns the bullies. One student, Ruth, comes from a tough background; she is a soldier against the Macca War. Despite the consequences, Ruth becomes a quiet hero; this inspires the audience. Throughout the story, the author portrays Ruth as a shred of hope for the other characters. With both literal and indirect ways, the author allows
When Atticus takes on Tom Robinson’s case he knows that Maycomb will be nasty to him and his kids. He says,“I just hope for Jem and Scout to come to me for their answers instead of listening to the town” (Lee 117). Atticus wants his kids to come talk to him if they have any questions about the trial. He teaches them to be independent so they do not buy in to the towns prejudice against Tom. Atticus trusts that his children will not lose their heard when someone says bad things about him representing Tom.
The antagonist in the play, King Creon, demonstrates the actions of a utilitarian by solely living his life to serving the majority of his community and doesn 't let his personal affairs get in the way of what 's best for his municipality. Creon stressed: "Whoever places a friend above the good of his own country, he is nothing: I have no use for him.... "I could never stand by silent, watching destruction march against our city, putting safety to rout, nor could I ever make that man a friend of mine who menaces our country. Remember this: our country is our safety. Only while she voyages on the true course can we establish friendships, truer than blood itself? Such are my standards.
That’s why he didn’t apologize when he angered his father by threating him. Instead, he said “Very well” and walked away (170). He was beginning the transitioning from a middle class citizen to an upper. Peter and Wendy was never lower-class because they was spoiled very young. The kid’s dependency to technology can be analyzed in Marxist perspective because it’s an example of materialism.
O’Connor has many characters in her stories that are damaged, delusional or broken. In “A Good Man,” The Misfit is a broken character. He does not know the difference from right and wrong because his father was never punished for the things he did wrong and he justifies his wrongdoing with having a good reason for doing it. The Misfit tells the grandmother that his father “never got in trouble with the Authorities” and had a “knack of handling them"(O’Connor “Good” 478). Because of this, The Misfit sees the world as a place that punishes the innocent and the guilty get away punishment free.
But never went to jail because he dad said he would keep him out of trouble. So throughout the years he has been hiding away in his house not talking to anybody and does not go outside, even when his mom and dad died. Everything he had been doing harmed nobody. Throughout the book To Kill A Mockingbird Boo Radley symbolizes a mockingbird and teaches many lessons to the readers. To start Boo Radley symbolizes a mockingbird because a mockingbird does nothing but bring peace to people.
Atticus has a very strong argument that Tom Robinson was innocent and that he was actually a good person on the inside who would never hurt a fly. My other text I will be covering is the nest as there is a character in it named Paul and his friend Jimmy wants to go on a hike with Paul but Jimmy’s parents don’t want him to go on the hike as there is many bad rumors about him considering the fact that he was sent to reform school for doing one bad
However this utopian society is held from experiencing true emotions. This lack of emotion is causing serious problems for the main character Jonas, when he was elected to be the new guardian of memory. It was his job to make sure no one found out about the past. Since the community is build perfect, and they will not feel any kind of emotion even if it’s a good feeling like love. From the beginning of The Giver we met perfect people, in the ideal community with strict rules.
He didn’t feel bad about it at all afterwards, as Scout tells us, “He waited until he was sure she was crying, then he shuffled out of the building.” This family doesn’t have a lot of wisdom in them, they don’t have the best life, but none of them will work so it really is their fault for their situation. Going from a man like Bob Ewell and a man like Atticus Finch, you can clearly see one main difference,
She means that Atticus treats his family with the same attitude he would treat strangers, and hides nothing. This quote is important because it teaches us that the townspeople know what Atticus is like, and know he is equal to everybody. Quote #10- This quote is when Walter Cunningham has not brought any lunch to school, and is interrogated by Miss Caroline. Scout has to explain why Walter couldn’t have a lunch, and is “whipped” after explaining that Walter is poor. Scout knows that the Cunninghams only pay back in favours, are poor, and work hard, but she can’t explain this all as “well as Atticus did.” This quote is important because it shows how unfamiliar Miss Caroline is to Maycomb, and that Scout is the one looked to to explain these
On page 47, he explains that he is not a murderer because he gives his victims fair warning by “snapping the twig,” before he appears. Likewise, I liked Brent’s speech on page 61, which gives the audience an in-depth look at the way Brent sees the world, rather his disdain for society. Brent projects the fault onto his victims for their deaths due to their inability to detach themselves from material items and their overall lack of appreciation for the freedom they have to live and breath each second of each day to the fullest. The writer has done a good job with the psychological foundation of Brent’s character, but by the second act, it felt as though the writer loses sight of the character motivations. What do you think needs work?
Personal Reactions: I liked how Lev’s character was developed throughout the story. Lev’s main focus in the beginning of the book is to escape from his “kidnappers” and be tithed like his parents wanted, but he is so focused on obeying his parents that he doesn’t notice the people who he thinks kidnapped him are trying to save him from being unwound. As the story progresses it’s obvious Lev no longer feels the same way, this is shown on page 226 when Shusterman states, “Once he landed in the safe-house network, he quickly made it known that he was not a guy to be trifled with. He didn’t tell them he was a tithe. Instead, he told them his parents signed the order to have him unwound after he was arrested for armed robbery”.
Scout explains how “A jury never looks at the defendant if it has convicted, and when this jury came in, not one of them looked at Tom Robinson… Judge Taylor was polling the jury; ‘Guilty...Guilty...Guilty’”(211) When Scout and Jem hear the verdict, they are distraught. As they were walking home, “It was Jem’s turn to cry.. ‘It’s not right, Atticus’”(212) It is at this moment that Jem and Scout realize that as much as they want the world to be fair, it is never going to be in favor of them. The morals in Maycomb, no matter how unfair and biased they may be, will not change as the racism and prejudice present in the novel have been in Maycomb for as long as the people living there can remember. This incident is another example of a lesson learned for both Jem and Scout as they see that life is not always perfect, but they have to make out of it what they
Sophocles revisits Oedipus’s past experience with the Sphinx to show his mentality of how he believes that he can do it all himself and he doesn’t need the gods help or anyone else 's help either. If he believes that he can do it all himself this creates suspension about what it to come for Oedipus in the future. This mentality shows how stubborn and how close minded he is. On line 439-441 the text states, “I say that with your dearest family, unknown to you, you are living in disgrace. You have no idea how bad things are.” Oedipus is very ignorant and oblivious to what is happening around him.
