Robert Stevenson uses his protagonist’s, Dr. Jekyll, person versus self conflict to illustrate this point. Throughout the text, the reader learns that Dr. Jekyll was born into good fortune and was well-respected in society. However, the reader learns that it was not enough for him. He craves irregularities and he seeks a way to experience both sides of his identity without harming his reputation, which leads him to immoral experiments that bring out Hyde. To be specific, Jekyll states the following, “Many a man would have even blazoned such irregularities as I was guilty of; but from the high views that I had set before me, I regarded and hid them with an almost morbid sense of shame” (Stevenson 55).

My response to Sidney Poitier's "Matter of Conviction," is it was a great essay. The main topic in this essay is about how Sidney just stumbled into the actor business and was making good money until one role he got was being dishonest to him-self and couldn’t stand up to anyone, which he said it, will lose his self-respect. Sidney couldn’t just be passive and throw away his family’s morals and rights they believed in. This essay is trying to attempt to get you to see what Sidney’s life was and how he had to fight everyday to provide for his family. I believe this writer has a clear controlling idea for the reason he started his article with “I had no plans to be an actor…I needed work and was leafing through…the Amsterdam News one day.” This statement is already trying to tell he is poor and he is willing to try anything.
Samuel’s strange behavior at the Box Canyon Boys Camp at Flagstaff, Arizona and in his everyday life is due to the paternal presence of Sid Shecker. Samuel acts out by imitating his comedic father and does this under duress. Samuel mimiks his father because he wants to feel loved and appreciated, but his father falls short by gambling and setting negative influences for Samuel. Although Samuel appreciates and seems to care for his father, his father neglects Sam and abandons him to pursue his career. The behavior that Sam shows is directly related to Samuel not being cared for or nurtured by a paternal influence.
There is a lot of uncertainty about Gatsby’s past and rumors start popping up because nobody knows the whole truth. Then the medal scene happens and the reader is given hope that Gatsby might not actually have this dark past, that he might actually be a war hero, but we are quickly let down. Gatsby introduces Nick to Meyer Wolfshiem “a gambler...who fixed the World Series back in 1919” (Fitzgerald, 73). Wolfsheim is an old friend of Gatsby’s and it drains any hope that Gatsby is a promising figure who used only legal tactics to make his money. Wolfsheim met Gatsby after the war and Wolfsheim asks Nick if he is looking for a “business gonnegtion” (Fitzgerald 70).
