Imagine that you were considered freaks like Kevin and Max because of your freakish attributes. One super tall, strong and dull and the other short, frail, and intelligent, as one they are Freak the Mighty. Throughout the story Max and Kevin show their individuality, but they are also similar in the fact that they are both considered freaks. Even though Max and Kevin have somethings that are similar they are different in strength, and personality. These differences help complete Freak the Mighty because they have things that the other one does not.
First, David’s skinny body and his arrogant expression reveal a confident man and anon-mythical expression that would not have been made as artwork during the Hellenistic period. Second, David shows the physically small instead of big figure and delicate figure of humans. This is important because he has the ability to beat Goliath even though he is much bigger than David (Allen
Adams was said to have been a man of short stature, a high voice and a bald head. Although Jackson had a full head of hair; his hair was wild and his eyebrows looked like fuzzy caterpillars crawling across his face. Based off the looks of these two candidates, thank goodness physical appearance was not the attribute that made an appealing candidate! Thankfully, presidential candidates are ideally chosen for their physical appearance, but for their background, character and qualifications
There are a number of differences and few similarities between the characters of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. The differences between the two men are mental, physical and moral. They are two separate personalities. Dr. Jekyll is an extremely intelligent and sane man with many good friends, known for his kindness and affectionate nature. On the other hand, Mr. Hyde is less educated, detestable and a loner.
“…he was tall, thin, and bony…and ugly without silliness” (20). Golding creates a vivid image of Jack by telling how he is lanky, and not attractive. For Jack, the conch symbolizes rules, because it permits him to listen to others, and inhibits him from doing everything that he wishes. In chapter six, Jack finally begins to tell the others that the conch is unnecessary. “We don’t need the conch anymore” (102).
Harper Lee’s To Kill A MockingBird portrays many differences between the Ewells and Cunninghams. Cleanliness is one contrast between the two families. For example, the Ewells are dirty because Burris’ “neck was dark gray, the back of his hands were rusty” (27). Their appearances are unkempt because it isn’t their top priority; however, the Cunninghams choose to take pride in their appearance. Even though their circumstances make it hard, Walter “wore a clean white shirt and neatly mended overalls” (19).
“But we aren’t afraid. We know the guy with crooked he is Davey the Baby’s brother, and the tall one next to him in the straw brim, that’s Rosa Eddie V., and the big one that looks like a dumb grown man, he’s Fat Boy, though he’s not fat nor a boy anymore” (Cisneros1 28). The people Esperanza describe seem intimidating and most anyone would be frightened by people like these. However, Esperanza knows the people not for their daunting looks, but for their
Webster’s dictionary defines a hero as “a person who is admired for great or brave acts or fine qualities; a person who is greatly admired; the chief male character in a story, play, movie, etc.” Looking at the list, Winston only fits one of these criteria. Winston is not a hero, even though he is the protagonist in this story. His actions and behavior throughout the book is unbecoming of a hero, and in the upcoming paragraphs, I will discuss what discredits him as a hero. Winston breaks, plain and simple. When it mattered most, his final stand against O’Brien and the oppressive powers of big brother, he is unable to withstand the onslaught.
The poem tells us that Ozymandias was a great leader in his opinion, but in contrary it could be the exact opposite according to his people. “The hand that mocked them, and the heart that fed them.” This quote uses personal body parts to display people’s emotion, in the treatment of Ozymandias. As stated in the quote above “the hand that mocked them,” refers to how Ozymandias mocked and downgraded his people to feel like a true ruler. On the contrary, it says that Ozymandias feeds and provides for his people. Apparently the only thing that Ozymandias’s people remembered was his harsh treatment and his vicious mocking.
Edward Rochester is a talented man; what he lacks in beauty he makes up for in other areas. Jane describes Rochester’s appearance as having “stern features and a heavy brow; his eyes and eyebrows looked ireful and thwarted” (Bronte 214). Even though Jane is no beauty herself, she still critiques others appearance, but she does not judge them for it. After his bad first impression and ugliness, Rochester decides to treat Jane with the highest level of respect that she has seen in her entire life. After some light conversations, Rochester has found himself in love with Jane because of her mind.
Still in the book he finds a way to be very sneaky and deceitful. To this modern era the image of a man is still in one way portrayed as a very strong man and is somewhat intellectually bright. As well as most men don 't care about what they have on so they don 't have a sense of fashion. All his unique quality aren’t bad, but they don’t symbolizes a stereotypical man. To this Cairo embodies a contradiction to what people think or might think is a mod-ern day stereotypical man is supposed to be.
Hyde 's shapes are also grotesque, as we can read during his first appears in the novel: he is a little man with clothes enormously too larges for him, is seen as deformed but with a deformity that nobody is able to say in what it consists. This primitive shape is only the first hand that a human is made up of; on the other hand there is the civilized, Dr Jekyll, the pure one moved by his mind and his strong sense of prudery. Another contrast between this two characters can be found in all the book: the struggle for existence. While at the beginning of the novel Hyde is represented as "little" and "thin", at the end he becomes to strong also for Dr Jekyll that couldn 't resist him anymore and so decided to commit suicide. While the "good" part, represented by Dr Jekyll, has been trained for all his life, his evil part, Mr Hyde, has been neglected for all the time, and now, after being evoked by Dr Jekyll 's potion, he wants to survive, to fight for his existence, to take this opportunity and to defeat Dr Jekyll becoming every day more
In Faulkner?s novel The Sound and the Fury this theme was prevalent. The young men in the story were given traits that had been almost exclusively been associated with women in the Old South.
