And now I would describe each of the characters of A Christmas Carol movie… Ebenezer Scrooge was a man that did not care about others. One day two portly men came into his office and asked him if he could donate some money for poor people… well he did not accept and he said that most of that poor people should die or go to prison and work in some workhouses. He in the movie was a very, very bad man and three ghosts of Christmas showed him to be nice with people, friends, family etc… Finally he changed and have a lot of fun with his family that they invited him for a dinner, with poor people and with his nephew Bob Cratchit.
He would also need to truly think about the effects that this will have on Trixxi’s life. If Frank loves Trixxi he would want to protect her. Frank needs to reevalautae who he really loves in this situation because he asks about Dana and his kids and seems to want to protect them in this situation, but not Trixxi. I would tell Frank he needs to really revaluate his marriage. Has he done everything that he can to make it work?
“Too bad,” says his mother wryly. “You’re only eight years old. You don’t have a choice.” She said that every time, and Eric was getting frustrated. They were flying to Italy to visit his grandparents for a couple weeks. Eric was glad that he got to skip school, but that meant more homework, and he couldn’t bear to leave his friends for more than two days.
Over the course of the play, he is presented as a complex person who hides deep insecurity beneath bluster and drive, relying on his handsome and athletic sons to compensate for his own sense of inadequacy. His willful hopefulness and exaggerated expectations betray him in the end by rendering him incapable of accepting himself or his children for who they are (Nadine). In this play, Willy would be a representation of failure to the American dream. Willy believes that personality, not hard work and innovation, is the key to success. Throughout time, Willy wants to make sure his boys are well-liked and popular.
“A Clean Well-Lighted Place” by Ernest Hemingway, demonstrates the different perspectives on a person and how it applies to each individual character’s views on life and the true meaning of it. The narrator describes each character and how each of them live their life with different morals, values, and different motives in which each person sets out to accomplish. In this short story, the narrator describes an elderly deaf man who comes into the café where the other characters work every night to drink his life away. The elderly man lives a lonely life, for the audience learns that his wife passed away and is survived by his niece. He is a man who has plenty of money, but who is in despair, so he sits in the well-lit cafe for his lonesome,
However he actually has delusions of grandeur and instead of getting the job he gets fired. Willy arrives home to his whole family Linda and his two sons, Biff and Happy. Biff has just returned home after working as a farmhand. That night Willy starts talking to himself, loudly. Linda reveals to her sons that they have been struggling financially also that Willy is depressed and has attempted to kill himself.
When Willy met Dave Singleman, Willy reconsidered his decision of going to Alaska and chose to be a salesman. Dave was “eighty-four years old, and he’d drummed merchandise in thirty-one states”(81). It seems as though Willy viewed him as a father, so he followed his same path hoping to have the same future and success. The Loman family was befuddled by the process of Willy’s fraudulent acts. Biff started arguing with his dad in front of the family and said they “never told the truth for ten minutes in this house!”(131), but that was Willy’s fault because he lied to please them.
On the other, familial pressures and body image push him towards his father’s ideals. When he becomes friends with the polack he sees through his fathers eyes, he does not wish to accept the beauty in Leka’s stories because he does not want to appear childish or weak. The other men such as Stephen’s father lack something which Leka has. He has an invitation for closeness, which is absent in the pulp mill. Stephen, who has very deeply seeded, pre-conceived notions of what it is to be a man, at a time in his life when his beliefs are questioned.
“Is it true that you left your entire fortune on a roulette table in Monte Carlo?” A news reporter asked him as he and his family got of the boat. “Who would believe we’d sunk this low? [meaning being escorted around by circus freaks and Christine having to sing to get by, to make up for his mistakes], never you mind the debts we owe” He told his wife later on in the film. While he is at the bar he ponders over the question “Why does she [Christine] love me?” because he realises that he hasn’t been the man that he should have been. He has let her and Gustave down.
Chesterfield is implying that his son does not know enough and must expand his knowledge before he can prosper. In addition, Chesterfield does not want his son to simply do well, but have detailed understanding of all in order to avoid disgrace. Chesterfield also demands that not only should his son know more than most, “but… excel in the thing itself” (51). The final goal of these assertions is to utilize the rhetorical strategy of diminishing pride in order to drive his son to meet higher expectations. Such a strategy reveals that Chesterfield, himself, believes that a man or woman must prove himself or herself as great without assistance, and that greatness comes only through extensive comprehension.
