Another quote that demonstrates conflict is,”’No, Ashes the teapots the way to go”’(Pfeffer 4). This is actually a bit of character vs character conflict between Ashleigh and her father because she is trying to get him to to sell his car instead of stealing from mom. Instead of agreeing Dad says no and continues to drive the plot forward through conflict. The climax is the resolution to the plot. Though the climax in “Ashes” does not provide a clear resolution it still is the height of conflict in the short story:”Her earthquake money.
In the novel, the judge of Huck’s custody dispute stated, “the courts mustn’t interfere and separate families if they could help it; said he druther not take a child away from its father” (Twain 21).Twain shows satirization in the legal system because the townsfolk knew Jim Finn wasn’t a suitable father and the court still allowed him custody. This also shows satirization of the government because Jim Finn was an alcoholic and abusive father, but the judge still gave this horrific man full custody of Huck.

Mark Twain did this to show how courts at the time just wanted to settle cases, rather than look into and actually figure out the right path to fix the

On the other hand, Antigone only stands up to her uncle, the king, because she wants to bury and pay her respects to her dead brother, who rebelled against the city.
