First there is Wolfshiem's betrayal of Gatsby; while he feels remorse for the death of Gatsby he refuses to become involved because the true remorse he feels truly isn't the loss of Gatsby but the loss of Gatsby's wealth claiming “Let us learn to show our friendship for a man when he is alive and not after he is dead.” This is more explicitly shown when Klipspringer calls Nick, not to arrange to attend Gatsby's Funeral but to get his tennis shoes back proving he truly doesn’t care in the slightest about Gatsby but simply the material wealth that represented Gatsby. The only characters to attend Gatsby’s funeral where those who had loyalty built not on material bonds but a much stronger bond of respect and appreciation for the man he was not the man he had become. This proves the Fitzgeralds point of how fragile and carefully built loyalty must
It was by his own choice that he was left without a job. No one forced him to call out his boss for kicking a couple girls out of the shop he worked in. This leads me to believe that believe that Sammy is not a victim. It was his own fault that he lost his job. Although Updike and Oates both choose to put the protagonist in danger, they contrasted on whether it was the protagonist 's own fault for being in danger.
Sylvia does not want Miss Moore to believe she is right and her teachings are effective. As for Sammy, his stubbornness is shown when he quits his job. Quitting his job was a spontaneous decision he made to protect his ego. Lengel calls out “you don 't want to do this” but Sammy keeps walking (Updike 5). Sammy’s stubbornness to admit he’s wrong can be interpreted by the quotation: “It 's true, I don 't.
This info gives me all the clues to say yes Okonkwo was sympathetic if you look at the patterns. His father Unoka was quoted “in his day was lazy and improvident and was quite incapable of thinking about tomorrow”. Basically saying he didn’t care about his life, so in what possible way could he have cared for Okonkwo’s. And his wife Ekwefi he didn’t technically shoot. He didn’t kill so there might have been sympathy there because she was completely defenseless and didn’t die so you can tell he intentionally didn’t kill her.
For example, as Huck reminisces his feats with Jim he says, “and for a starter I would go to work and steal Jim out of slavery again; and if I could think up anything worse, I would do that too” (214). Huck holds onto Jim as a father figure who accepted and cared from him when others did not accept who he was. The civilized world robbed Jim of his freedom and Huck realized that skin and race do not translate into love, companionship, and friendship. Racism is not a playing factor in this story in fact it is anti-racism that leads the two most unlikely individuals to become friends. In addition, Ralph Waldo Ellison once said, "Huckleberry Finn knew, as did Mark Twain, that Jim was not only a slave but a human being and a symbol of humanity... and in freeing Jim.
Second, Jonas’s community cannot say love because it’s wrong. In addition the society cannot feel love to anyone or anything. One night Jonas and his parents were talking. Suddenly Jonas asks do you love me?His parents say it is wrong to say love and respond to the question with a no.But we are proud of your accomplishments.
Basically that he is never around anymore to begin with that if anything happens he should not even care nor get involved because it just causes more problems. He did not like that and so we argued more but then he finally got the hint each time something would happen and I would mouth off to him. I cannot have respect for a man who cuts out his kids just to impress his new girlfriend, I cannot do it. He does not realize how bad he has hurt my mother, sister and I the last ten or so
As time went on, Wynand worked several jobs which primarily ended with him being fired for some type of disobedience or challenge of authority, such as with one of his first jobs working as a paper boy, “‘I know it will work,’ says Wynand. ‘Well, you don’t run things around here,’ says the boss. ‘You’re a fool,’ said Wynand. He lost the job.” (402). He sees no reason to listen to other’s methods of doing things when he knows perfectly well that he is the most capable of composing efficient ideas for himself and those around him.
Everyone, except for Cash, begins to think he is mad when in reality he tried to “hide her away from the sight of man” (215). Cash saw this in Darl thinking that “Sometimes I think it aint none of us pure crazy and aint none of us pure sane until the balance of us talks him that-a-way” (233) Cash is the only person in the Bundren family who saw Darl going to the mad-house as a good thing without having to hide their “inner truth.” Cash said Darl going away from the family “is better so for him. This world is not his world; this life his life”
Even though shortly after got done telling Charley how he lost his job, he was still refusing to take his offer. This is showing how a dream is a release for Willy, to forget about his stresses of getting fired. Rather than accepting these facts, he ignores them by refusing Charley’s offer. He continues living this false reality which only causes him more stress, because he’s unaware of what’s really going
