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
He believes nothing great was going to happen the way his life was, although in the end he runs away from the family and is leaving to where he desires with no remorse. When he married Lucynell he felt he had a lingering piece of salvation left in him, nevertheless after he left, he felt like he had lost all hope, causing the clouds to appear and for it to
“Look at what you’re are doing, you are decreasing our population. You are making kids upset because you’re taking away their friends and family just because they follow a different religion and believe in different things than you. Everyone has a right to believe in what they think is right, I think you should let all of those people come back, give them back their old life, the one they want and used to have. “ The men looked surprised that he was actually saying that because he was Pastafarian and they couldn’t do anything about it. “ The man has a point.” said some of the workers.
The trait that Chris seems to lack throughout the novel is responsibility. Chris McCandless possessed many heroic qualities that are shown throughout the novel but due to those qualities he did not always make the most responsible choices. The heroic trait that is most easily seen throughout the novel is bravery. Chris showed bravery even before he left for Alaska, when in high school he would spend the weekends delivering food to homeless people and prostitutes in the rough
The quote “To be free, a man must be free of his brothers.” to me means that one can’t truly reach their full potential if they let everyone else dictate what to do and how to do it. One truly can discover this once they’re alone with their self. All of his life Prometheus had felt different from his brothers, like he was an outcast. Once he was finally free of the “love” of his brothers he finally realises that they have been brainwashed all of their life to love their brothers so much that they cannot reach their full potential. In this community it is a sin to think an idea that your brothers don’t.
Many viewed McCandless to be egotistical due to the fact that he left his entire life to pursue his personal desires, and he didn’t think about how others would feel after he left, or if he did, he didn’t care. McCandless was also seen as ignorant. He was not only careless with the feelings of others, but also with his well being. He didn’t seem to know what would be awaiting him in the wild because he didn’t bring many supplies or do too much to prepare, which is what set him apart from a typical adventurer. Chris McCandless was an ignorant narcissist, which was made clear through his recklessness.
Chris McCandless was a independent person and he was trying to get away from civilization because he felt like he never fit into it. Krakauer quotes from Ken Sleights when he talks about Chris McCandless, “A lot of us are like that, I’m like that, Ed Abbey was like that, and it sounds like this McCandless kid was like that: We like companionship, see, but we can’t stand to be around people for very long. So we go get ourselves lost, come back for a while, then get the
He became so obsessed with his job that he didn’t realize he was a part of the cruel government. Juan was so caught up with his job that “when his letter to Mariana reached his hands, naturally he censored it without any regret. (188)” As a result, Juan turned into the very little thing he hated and fought against in the beginning, a censor. As a result, he did not overcome oppression due to his fear of breaking the rules of a
“The eyes of our brothers are dull, and never do they look one another in the eyes. The shoulders of our brothers are hunched, and their bodies were shrinking and wished to shrink out of sight” (Rand 46). This quote gives the idea that they feel some sort of fear or uneasiness but can’t seem to express their feelings because it’s against the law. That feeling is felt throughout the entire book except the ending when Equality finds the meaning of life which is one’s self. Me and my partnered both assumed that when Equality escaped, they didn’t decide to go after him as punishment, because they probably thought he wouldn’t last and would die.
After he wrongly accuses his son of plotting his death and is maimed by those he once called friends, Gloucester becomes depressed. He tells Edgar, “I have no way and therefore want no eyes;/I stumbled when I saw: full oft ‘t is seen,/ Our means secure us, and our mere defects prove our commodities” (4.1.78). Although losing his vision was traumatic, he cares little about it because he has no need for vision anymore. Even when Gloucester could see, he was blind to the reality of his son’s innocence. When he realizes his error, Gloucester becomes so distraught that he decides to “repair the misery [Edgar] dost bear” (4.1.79) by committing suicide.
