He was blinded by his power and his pride so much that he ended up having what’s left of his family killed. He wasn’t going to be a hero like Antigone but instead he was going to live on with the city of Thebes turned against him and conclusively living alone possibly for the rest of his
Most of the times that he wants to speak to his son peacefully something that Artie does has to bother him because during the Holocaust he had to be conservative with everything he used. One example that Artin and Vladkek’s relationship is bad because of the communication that they have because they have not been together and talked to each other in 2 years. With Mala, it’s even worse,he doesn’t support her and she doesen’t support him because they never communicate and more importantly they don’t have a meaningful relationship with her.
That being said, this example reflects the idea of death and release, a reoccuring theme present in the conclusion of Night. In the final chapters, prisoners from Buna who had been so close to freedom could wait no longer, and death was a sort of release from their pain. In this way, those who died were free. That freedom was so
He could leave anytime he wanted but he doesn’t he stays there with his family even when he is harming himself. Also when Ponyboy and Johnny were at the park, then Bob showed up. Bob and his friends were drowning Ponyboy in the fountain, and Johnny was hurt he got right back up to help his friend. Johnny was terrified and didn’t
Amir had sinned throughout the novel. He lied, witnessed a sin and never told anyone, and was putting his own friend down. Amir knew that Baba’s moral was to not steal because it was a sin, purposely he hides his own stuff under his friends bed. He saw Hassan getting raped without telling anyone or doing anything. Also he would lie and teach him wrong infortmation.
If he was really concerned for his daughter, he would’ve agreed with everybody else and had somebody come look at Betty much sooner than he did. Of course we know that Betty was just sleeping and she was faking the whole time but Parris did not know this. Instead, he was too concerned about what people would think of him. Because as the town Reverend he can't have witchcraft in his house or his reputation would be tarnished.
George protected Lennie a bunch of times, from taking care of their wife his belonging, like his work card and bus pass, to helping him escape to death after killing Curley's wife. Whatever crime he committed, George was there right by his side. Lennie couldn't do much for George; however, what he did, was all he could do which meant a lot coming from him. Giving up what he really wanted, like ketchup, meant the world to Lennie. This relationship is very unique because not everyone would help a friend escape from killing.
In conclusion, i believe Okonkwo is a sympathetic man and he cares about the people around deeply. He may just have a hard way of showing it. Whether he beats his family, tries to kill them, abuses them. Nobody he has touched hasn’t died. So you can look at it that way and say he cares.
(Brogan pg.20). Neighbors are supposed to be helpful and friendly to one another, but this was not the case in the O’Kelly’s neighborhood. This is a representation of how flawed some societal structures can be depending on the values and lifestyles of those included in it. Instead of helping him clear his name, his neighbors only amplified his misery by gossiping.
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”
It does get my attention when Richard gets on a roll and my favorite quote in this chapter is when he states “America’s Most Fucked-Up Home Videos”. (Anonymous, p. 154) This chapter seems to resin more of we are going to win then loose then “maybe” win again. It is an emotional roller coaster for a reader that I cannot imagine being on a real campaign trail. It finally starts to take shape when he is in the cinder block union building for a funeral and he started to speak to the people about the people. It is as if Stanton finally figured out his true platform and how it is conveyed.
“Be kindly affectioned one to another with brotherly love; in honor preferring one another” (Romans 12:10). Long ago, there was a time when courtesy emerged. During that time, civilization valued standards, morals, etiquette, and politeness. Certain regulations existed for speech, which ensured no one was confused or unnecessarily offended. There were also numerous laws regarding behavior, which made sure everyone’s needs were cared for and no one was harmed, insulted, or excluded.
“Shmuel may well have opened his mouth to say something back, but Bruno never heard it… as the door at the front was suddenly closed and a loud metallic sound rang through from the outside” (Boyne 213). The Holocaust was a tragic event that happened all throughout Europe from 1933-1945. The Nazi’s would take Jews or any other person who could potentially hurt them and hold them captive. There were concentration camps that held these people. They were forced to work long hard days with little food and water.
