Paul seems to be afraid of Erik, which is reasonable given the things that he has put Paul through. For example, Paul is a constant punching bag for Erik, as he mocks him and feels superior towards him; Erik being the older sibling and thus has more freedom. The story also gives hints that Erik has something to do with Paul's lack of peripheral sight. However, despite that Paul is afraid of Erik, is doesn't mean that Paul isn't willing to indirectly go against him. He has seen many heinous things that Erik has done, like punching Tino and mocking Mike Costello, so he seems to be waiting for the right time to strike.
Nugent who most considered to be the opposite of him. Bernie’s criminal behavior would be considered to come from pressure and the environment in which he felt he could not escape because he did not know how. Even while being incarcerated Bernie continued to help others and continued to be a productive inmate. This leads me to believe that he snapped due to his inability to control his frustrations which lead him to taking out his behavior on the person who caused this feeling. Behavior I believe is learned and this is shown in this movie.
Stealing did not have much of an affect over him in either the positive or negative direction. However, he worries that his other desires will lead him to “end up abnormal” (1248). Yunior cannot control his sexuality, yet he spends the most time obsessing over his homosexual thoughts and activities. Where his focus lies reveals his level of immaturity along with his constant need to fit in. He has been the man of the house since his father left, but when it comes to himself he only does what is expected.
His inability to accept the fact that he is committing unnecessary acts of violence are proof that Abner views life from a different perspective. As the reader progresses through the story, it’s clear that Abner is carrying out actions only beneficial to himself. He speaks of loyalty numerous times to his son, however Abner only emphasizes this value when he needs Sarty to help him get out of a predicament. “Barn Burning” is a very interesting story containing numerous controversial events. As the story progresses, Abner shows his true colors of deception and violence.
Because of the fact that Gawain falls short to exchange the sash with Lord Bertilak as the circumstances of their agreements dictated, it begins to further symbolize Gawain’s desperation to survive at any expense, especially for his code of honor. But as time goes by and because of his failure, he chooses to always display the girdle on him as a symbol of this failure. The color imagery in Sir Gawain and the Green Knight reinforces the common human struggle of temptation, life and death. As being human we all come across obstacles we must surpass, some fail miserably, but most learn from that and succeed in the end.
Glancing is a quick and often careless action which demonstrates how the superintendent isn’t that affected by the hanging that just occurred. Again, Orwell also dehumanizes the superintendent by continuing to make him seem like he has no sympathy or heart-warming emotions inside of him. The terrible conditions of the prison are described again when a story is told about a prisoner who “clung to the bars of his cage” (page 4). The fact that the prisoner was staying in what was called a cage is inhumane since cages are supposed to be for animals and not humans. The story continues, and it mentions that the officers felt pain and trouble because of the resistance by the prisoner.
And when he stands up by disobeying, he is faced with punishments. Another way Cory’s possession of courage is shown is when he is acceptant of punishments that are directed to him. Troy reached the peak when his son didn’t quit so he never signed the papers allowing Cory to scout out and he also spoke to the coach. This is sort of a form of punishment because he took away something Cory was looking forward to, something he really wanted to do and that thing was then stripped from him making him miserable.

””(90) Although Dally is cold hearted towards others, he cares about Johnny, who is different than the other greasers because, unlike them, is sensitive and quiet. Ponyboy says, “He was sensitive and that isn’t a good way to be when you’re a greaser.”(88) It is not good to be sensitive when you are a greaser because there are lots of hardships, and emotions can take a toll on people. After getting beat up by the socs, Johnny even more skittish and nervous then he was before.
Truthfully, this doesn’t change my connotation of Paul one bit. As they say, “A man has got to do what a man has got to do.” Considering how poorly fed and malnourished the soldiers are, Kat and Paul had to resort to stealing to receive the nutrients they required to endure the tiresome war. Some may argue that this was out of pure greed and selfishness, but one has to consider that the soldiers endure Hell and back, if they make it back, and all they ask is for is a decent meal.
One of the controversies is that it shows animal abuse. ( Shmoop.com/4554) Through the story Buck (the main character) is beaten and sometimes starved for not doing what he is suppose to be doing. Another thing that doesn 't help this is that
