Although Fortunado is essentially locked away for the rest of life I think Montressor is still not fully sastisfied. He is torn because he is not fully at peace with his decision. On the other hand, verbal damage, or abuse can be more damaging long term than physical abuse or misdeeds. I think he was very diabolical and calculating in his approach,
It was much better than I had anticipated before reading it. Wes Moore is a strong author who properly used writing mechanics to deliver powerful scenes and great messages. I would say that the main theme of this book is the importance of education in adolescent life and that small things really can make all of the difference. The author Wes Moore 's life appeared very dull in comparison to the other Wes Moore 's; however, it was Wes Moore 's life that would provide quotes that inspire or were otherwise relatable to MAST life. One such quote in the novel was : "In spite of myself, I was impressed.
So it depends on how you interpret the brother's motivations for wanting to teach Doodle these skills. The narrator admits that he wants to be proud of his younger brother, so the desire to teach Doodle the physical skills is a selfish one. When Doodle shows that he can't perform these skills to the narrator's liking, the narrator abandons Doodle to the rain storm and eventually, death. Therefore, I would conclude that the narrator was not a good
Movie Review of American History X American History X is directly related to racism as a social issue. The film is about a day in the life of Danny whose brother Derek was the leader of a Neo-Nazi group. Derek was sentenced to prison for 3 years because of killing two black people who attempted to steal his car. In his prison years, he was raped by the Neo-Nazi’s, changed his world view with the help of black man who was working with Derek in laundry service of prison and had a transition from blind-hatred to enlightened man who is trying to steer his brother back from being controlled by racist beliefs. The underlying reason of why Derek was the leader of the Neo-Nazi group and had problems with anger management is that his father was murdered by black drug dealers.
Some readers might brush him off as a religious fanatic and a cruel, domineering father; others might identify with his struggle to raise his son how he thinks best. Some might be moved by Reb Saunders’s tears of apology; others might think that he abused Danny and that his apology could not possibly make up for it. Like Reuven, nobody is quite sure just how to feel about Reb Saunders by the end of the novel, which is actually a good thing in a different angle. It meant that The Chosen had accomplished a big goal. It enabled the readers to see beyond the surface of things and people, into deeper meanings.

The simile, ’spooky as hell’, has a mysterious and frightening tone. No one truly knows what hell is like but its negative connotations provide a vivid image of how frightening Perry can be. In the novel In Cold Blood it's described that Perry had a strong relationship with his father, but as Perry got older it worsened. The simile, "I loved my father but there were times when this love and affection I had for him drained from my heart like wasted water", "like wasted water" can represent that Perry did love his father but once Perry grew older he realized that he didn't love him anymore, and that his affection towards his father was wasted as it led to no positive outcome. This shows that Perry had some issues with his father, which could have affected his personality later on, as one needs to feel the love of a parent.
Brother was so ashamed of who his brother might have been, that he went to extremes to make him normal. That would have been fine, but he did not help Doodle out of the goodness of his own heart, he taught him things because he felt that he would be spending too much time with him and Brother feared that he would spend the rest of his whole life trying to take care of his disabled little
In Poisonwood Bible and Things Fall Apart, the spearheading male characters succumb to doubts of their own validity despite being initially established as the ones with the most power. The urge to exercise this inherent power reflects an instability within the minds of the owners, creating a sort of deterrence so that outsiders don’t examine closer. If they do, they see brokenness, doubt, fear...all things that a man in power should not feel and should not have the right to feel. These perpetrators of cruelty show their weakness through their actions, as their character is not strong enough to be convincing based on values alone, and slowly chip away at them despite having the intentions of doing the opposite. Those on the receiving end, however, are the ones who benefit in the end, as they become aware of one’s true personality and realize that there is more possibility outside of the abuse.
It was like the author was trying too hard for this book to be fun and light and cute... but it just seemed silly and poorly written. I hate saying things like this, but when it becomes that big of an issue for me I have to point it out. Also, all of Braswell 's characters, both the old and the new, had one major flaw: lack of characterization. It 's as if Braswell expected the reader to use and be satisfied with prior knowledge. I was not satisfied.
