At this point, the girl ran away from Adams because she thought he was crazy. He felt lonely so he called home.
Alazon is described as the character who “doesn’t know that he doesn't know”(page 257). What happens, is that eiron spends most the time verbally ridiculing, humiliating, undercutting and generally getting the best of the alazon, who doesn’t get it. According to Foster, irony works because the audience picks up on clues and understands things that characters of the play aren’t able to. This example of irony by Foster, closely relates to numerous scenes in the play Macbeth.

Although his comments were offensive, they did not pose any threats they way violence or violence threats would have. The meaning Keegstra’s comment conveyed was offensive but it was not from the way the message was formed but the meaning that was attached to it.

Whether you are trying to protect people from the truth by hiding secrets you are still not being honest which is the same as lying. A vague example in the novel is when Ben first hears about his terminal illness. Instead of telling his family, he decides to skip treatment and not tell his family.

In this article, “Why We Love TV’s Anti-heroes,” the author Stephen Garrett argues that in today’s society our whole perspective of heroes has changed since the mid-twentieth century. Garrett is appealing to all American’s who love watching their favorite TV heroes and heroines.

The author relies on generally accepted ideas from the American public to base his main idea; he uses sources from popular TV shows and movies which have anti-heroes that draw the attention of their audience. “But now we’re fighting wars - Iraq, Afghanistan, Israel/Palestine, the War on Terror - where it’s far less clear who the enemy is, indeed whether there is an enemy at all, or even that we are the
However, this truth remains unknown to Parris, so one has to analyze the situation from his point of view. Disregarding the truth, the first thing Parris worries about is his own name and reputation, instead of his daughter’s wellbeing. Thus, having his estate and daughter involved with witchcraft and unnatural events obviously threatens his rank as a revered. While arguing with Abigail, he says “my ministry’s at stake, my ministry and perhaps your cousin’s life”(Miller, 11), explicitly revealing how he places the importance of his name before Betty’s own sake. Parris is afraid of what others might think of him and avoids facing the congregation in order to evade the topic of witchcraft.
Hurst suggests that expectations are also a form of egotism that can lead to resentment; hence coming into conflict with one’s identity, such as alteration and remorse. Doodle’s desire was to be loved and supported by his family. He was invalid - he could not walk; thus everyone had low expectations towards him and thought he would die except for Aunt Nicey. His brother (the narrator) tried to kill him as he saw him an unbearable disappointment and his father had built him a mahogany coffin. For instance, “It was I who renamed him [...] Crawling backwards made him look like a Doodlebug, […] because nobody expects much from someone called Doodle.” Society’s attentiveness is predominantly towards the aspects of and in this story Doodle’s impairment seemed to have negative impacts on him that the society has caused.
Paul’s fear blinds him at first, and he cannot see how broken his family is.

When Jack cannot think of any confessions in catechism class he listens to Sister James’ own confessions, reflects, and then regurgitates the exact same confessions to the priest, Jack knows that these are not his own sins and that lying about them is not even beneficial to claim but he sees that if someone like Sister James, who has a purpose, an identity, can confess to such acts then maybe if confesses the same he will replicate an identity that is as well founded as her own. This does not occur, later on Jack realises that, “Being so close to so much robust identity made me feel the poverty of my own.” This shows that no matter how hard he attempts to assume an identity the truth always catches up. Jack also goes through periods of trying to adopt a character based on seeing them portrayed positively and ‘respected’, which is an extremely sought after trait for him. For example, when Jack is reading ‘Boy’s Life’ he comments that, “I was really no different from the boys whose hustle and pluck it celebrated.” And that “reading about these boys made me restless, feverish with schemes.” To Jack, seeing boys his age, that are succeeding and gaining respect, which is his dream, causes him to change his ambitions to match theirs, in hopes that it will provide him with his much desired identity. However this is not the case, once Jack realises that such dreams exceed his calibre he retracts the ambition and latches onto the next one.
